Scobe's Quick Tips: #18 and #19 (Never split two 5's at blackjack, Playing Equal-Distribution Slot Machines)

11 April 2003

Scobe's Quick Tip #18:

Never split two 5s at blackjack.

A two-card hand of 10 is a strong hand and an excellent hand on which to double against a dealer's 2 through 9. If you split two 5s you give yourself two bad starters and you'll lose more.

So 5:5 is double, not split!

For more information on blackjack read Best Blackjack by Frank Scoblete and Blackjack Take the Money and Run by Henry Tamburin.

Scobe's Quick Tip #19:

Want your money to last a long time at the slots?

Play "equal-distribution" machines for only one coin.

On these machines each extra coin merely "multiplies" the paytable, giving no extra bonus. Thus, on the jackpot line, one coin might pay 200 coins, two coins might pay 400 coins, and three coins might pay 600 coins.

Play one.

In this way, you can play longer while risking less money.

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.
