A shuffle through the Gaming mailbag:
Q. The straight flush payoffs in video poker really bother me. They are so rare. Shouldn’t you be rewarded for getting something that rare? They pay less than four of a kind in a lot of games.
Q. When I win a bet at a table game, I get my bet back in addition to the money I won. When I win a bet on a slot machine or a video poker game, I don’t get my bet back, I only get the winnings.
