Q. You don’t seem to write much about Let It Ride, but could you answer a question? Once I look at my first three cards, I can either pull back one bet or let it ride. I was in a situation where I had 2-3-4 of clubs, and I let it ride, but then after the first common card was a 9 of hearts, …

In this age of multitasking, I will admit to moments of multi-time wasting, checking out free online slots while watching baseball, football, basketball or hockey.

Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa was named Atlantic City’s best overall gaming resort based on votes from readers of Casino Player magazine.

Q. I’ve been playing a lot of Super Times Pay lately, usually for quarters on Five Play. Do you know, is there any change in the odds of drawing a royal flush in regular games, on Super Times hands without the multiplier, and on Super Times with the multiplier?

Q. Your article on different Deuces Wild payoffs reminded me of something I’ve wanted to ask. You say that in non-wild card games, percentages usually are adjusted by changing the pay tables on full houses and flushes. But there are lots of other changes, especially the four of a kinds. Doub…

At most Three Card Poker tables, the highest payoff on the Pair Plus option is the 40-1 you get on any straight flush.

Q. I live in an area where there are eight casinos within about a 45-minute drive. They’re scattered in different directions, so there’s no casino hopping. You pick one and that’s where you go for the day.

Even though sports betting isn’t legal in New Jersey, soon you’ll be able to guess at which teams will win each week during the 2016 football season to earn cash and free play at three Atlantic City casinos.

Once again, greeting and salutations. And it’s like the Four Tops’ “It’s the Same Old Song” – it never really ends. Every year I seem to say it as we get close to the end of another season at Memories in Margate. Yes, it is still the same old song. And the memories will linger on.

A few weeks ago I wrote about automated and semi-automated table games, zeroing in on the Shaq Jack blackjack game that recently made its Atlantic City debut.

Automated or semi-automated renditions of table games have been with us for a couple of decades, and have met with mixed success.

Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa is now part of the same MGM “family” of resorts as the Bellagio, Aria, Mirage and others in Las Vegas, the Beau Rivage in Biloxi, Miss., and, later this year, MGM National Harbor, across the river from Washington, D.C., in Oxon Hill, Md. MGM also has resorts in…

Once again, greeting and salutations. And what a time to be not only in Jersey but in Philadelphia when thousands of people from across the country are experiencing the good things – the music, the restaurants, the venues, the entertainment, and the people – that the visitors to the Democrat…

Q. I used to like it when every casino had a fun book and you could get a little slot play and some match play at the tables, some food discounts, free popcorn or a hot dog — it was fun hunting for the best bargains for a low roller!

Q. Do you think average blackjack players are improving? It seems to me that I see fewer really terrible players than I used to. There are some, of course, but more seem to play a reasonable approximation of basic strategy, even if they miss some plays.

Once again, greeting and salutations. And no doubt about it. The Fourth may have come and gone, but for the partying people this has got to be the best summer of them all.

I see hundreds of new slot machines every year, and test at least a few dozen of them. Occasionally, there’s something that piques my curiosity beyond game play. So I look it up, and add to my collection of trivia:

Q. Please explain to me once more why it is so horrible to split 10s when the dealer has a bust card like a 6.

Back in February, I relayed a couple of player stories about poker players who were tipping their hole cards.

Once again, greetings and salutations. Wow . . . what a weekend! And it wasn’t even the Fourth yet. It was like a reunion between the old and the new. Back in the day, when I first bought the Elbo Room and renamed it Memories, we would have hundreds and hundreds of folks from all over just p…

Q. Playing blackjack, another player was really getting on my nerves. He kept hitting 12s. I know you guys say it’s right to hit 12 when the dealer shows a 2 or 3, but this guy hit 12 when the dealer had a 4. Not every time, just sometimes. I couldn’t believe it. Can’t players do anything to…

Q. My buddy and I were playing craps, and a guy across the table looked at his watch and said he had to leave. He was playing don’t pass, and they just took his bets down for him and gave him his money. When I’m playing pass, they won’t let me take my bets down. OK, the odds I can take down,…

Once again, greeting and salutations. And yes, once again Memories is the talk of the town. We’re not even into the height of the summer, but people from all over are picking up on the party. Plus lots of bachelor and bachelorette parties are happening at this time of year. And of course, al…

Q. We just returned from a two-week casino vacation. One morning, there was quite a stir, as we were told just about every bank of video poker machines was paying out massively, on hand pays.

June is LGBT Pride month. The Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa is recognizing the occasion with a special room package and an entertainment line-up to appeal to the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community.

For many years, casinos, marketing departments and gambling analysts agreed that to get the highest payback percentage, slot players should bet max coins. Trump Casinos even has a long-running character named “Max Coins” to drive home the point.

Q. I’ve noticed that the big-paying symbols are off the line a lot more than they’re on the line. Is that intentional? Are the games programmed to tease players to thinking they’re close to a jackpot?

Once again, greeting and salutations. And as usual, it all begins again this weekend - the official opening of our 44th year at Memories in Margate. And from all indications, this summer will be bombastic. With the crazy weather we've had, people are looking forward to getting down to the sh…

Q. I was wondering if there is a list of which machine has a higher payout. I looked at New York Gaming commission and couldn't find my answer. I was looking for the percentages or odds of the games at the Akwesasne Mohawk Casino. Do they have to post it somewhere? I sent a private Facebook …
