Scobe's Quick Tips: #14 and #15 (Three Coin Slot Machines, Caribbean Stud Side Bets)

28 February 2003

Scobe's Quick Tip #14:

On three-coin buy-a-pay slot machines, that is, machines that reward you with extra payline combinations for extra coins, it is always best to either play one coin or full coin.

Studies by John Robison have shown that playing two coins is the very worst way to play the machines as you are increasing your risk but not substantially increasing your possibility to win.

For more information on slots, read Break the One-Armed Bandits! by Frank Scoblete, The Slot Machine Answer Book by John Grochowski, and The Slot Expert's Guide to Playing Slots by John Robison.

Scobe's Quick Tip #15:

It is always a bad idea to place a jackpot side bet at games such as Let it Ride and Caribbean Stud as the casino usually has a double-digit edge on these bets.

The only time Caribbean Stud is worth attempting is when the jackpot reaches over $300,000 -- which has happened in the last ten years about as often as full eclipses of the sun. That little dollar sidebet can add up to a lot of money over the long run -- money lost.

For more information on Let It Ride and Caribbean Stud, read Bold Card Play by Frank Scoblete.
