Ask the Wizard!

We have long been proponents of the Wizard of Odds. That site is like a warm blanket of knowledge and straight talk about how all our favorite casino games work. The wizard provides us with deep insights, and irrefutable logic. And so we are pleased to know that when we're stumped with a gaming question, we can always ask the wizard for help.

This is just the kind of question we love to ask to:

Hi, Wizard. Let's say I have $300 to gamble with, and can accept a 25% risk of ruin. What should I do to maximize my upside? Thanks!

Head on over to the wizard's archive of answers to find the answer. And Yep.. we guessed right ;)

If you have your own question, why not ask the Wizard, and perhaps he will grace you with the wisdom of his answer.

Dice Cup

Dice Cup

If your home casino is the kind that enjoys rollin' the bones like ours is, then you won't want to miss this sweet dice cup. Nobody NEEDS to have a dice cup, as your hands can do the job just fine. But everybody loves the feel of a dice cup. The soft plonking sound of the cubes bouncing around inside a muffled container, willing fate to show the roller good fortune. Its simply seductive. Its also one of those touches that takes an ordinary home casino night to the next level.

Crown Las Vegas Will Never Reign

Sadly, it seems a bid to build the world's tallest casino will not come to pass any time soon. From the Sydney Morning Herald:

JAMES PACKER'S ambitious roll of the dice aimed at creating the world's tallest casino has failed to come up with the right numbers, with financiers failing to support the Las Vegas project.

Crown Ltd, of which Mr Packer owns 38 per cent, yesterday announced that plans to build a $5.2 billion casino with American partners had been thwarted by the global credit crunch.

The decision to pull the plug comes after the plan to transform an empty block of land into a casino and hotel development was effectively put on life support about three months ago.
