Yesterday, we gave you a quiz to take – for fun. Here are the answers.
But wait, if you didn’t take the quiz then and click here to take it. I’ll Wait…………
So, how do you think you did? You didn’t cheat and Google anything, did you?
Here are your answers with explanations to follow:
Quick Hit – H. Slot Machine
This Bally’s progressive slot comes in many variations and denominations. A total of nine possible “Quick Hit” symbols are available to produce five progressive bonuses – the more symbols, the higher the progressive. This slot has spawned other companies to make similar hybrid progressive slot machines.
Fire Bet – B. Craps.
The fire bet is a somewhat uncommon craps bet. Usually this is a special craps side-bet that players can make over a multi roll period. Not all casinos will allow this kind of bet since this one is kind of advanced and is usually used by professionals and experienced players. You check out lolcraps.com for a complete explanation.
Three Card Straight – K. Three Card Poker
This should have been an easy one, even for slot only players. The interesting part about this pay out is that is pays more than a flush. In almost all other poker variants and video poker games, it’s the opposite.
Double Up – F. Video Poker
This is a bet after a winning play that allows you to double your win, or lose it all. My suggestion is never use it.
Surrender – A. Blackjack
When you surrender in blackjack you are immediately forfeiting your hand and getting 50% of your bet returned to you. An example would be if you bet $100 and were dealt a 16 versus a dealer’s 10, you might prefer to “surrender” the hand and get $50 back instead of potentially losing the entire $100. You’re taking an instant loss of half your bet in order to save the other half of the bet. Surrendering is only an option on your first two cards before you take a hit. This is not offered in all casinos around the country.
Big Blind – D. Poker
A well known part of poker, especially with the exposure poker has received on television. It is the larger of the two forced bets before play starts. The person in second position posts the big blind, which is equivalent to a small bet.
On Sundays, it usually refers to an interception ran for a TD in NFL, which I’m sure is a prop bet in Nevada Sports Books, but everywhere else it is a type of wager offered by horse racing tracks that requires bettors to select the winners of six consecutive races. Because of the great difficulty in picking six straight winners, plus the number of betting interests involved, payoffs for successful wagers are quite high.
Over / Under – C. Sports Betting
An over/under bet, or total bet, is a single wager on whether or not the combined goal, point or run total of a single game will be over or under what the oddsmaker sets it at before the event. When placing a total wager, all the bettor is concerned with is the combined score of each team at the end of the game.
Flop – D. Poker
Also a well known part of poker with the exposure poker has received on television. The “Flop” is the name for the first three cards dealt, face-up on the board, in community card games like Texas Hold’em and Omaha.
Quick Quad – F. Video Poker
A variant VP game that awards a four-of-a-kind payout if the final five cards are a three-of-a-kind and the other two cards added together equal the value of the single three-of-a-kind card. For example, three 8’s with a 6 and a 2 = four 8’s. A fun, volatile game that needs creation tweaks to basic game strategies.
Basically, the numbers needed make a sideview of a picnic table. Yup, that’s it.
Fortune Bonus – I. Pai Gow Poker
“Fortune” is a side bet in Pai Gow Poker that pays based on the value of the player’s seven cards. It doesn’t not matter how the player sets his hand. In addition, if another player has a four of a kind or better the player making the Fortune bet will get an “Envy Bonus.” At every table I have seen there is a $5 minimum and the Envy Bonus is a fixed amount.
Perfect pairs – A. Blackjack
A perfect pairs bet must be worth the minimum wager, and you’ll also have to make a normal bet too. For example, if you were making $5 bets, one $5 wager would go on the outcome of your regular hand, and the other $5 bet would be placed on the perfect pairs outcome. To win a perfect pairs bet, you have to get a pair just like the name suggests. But the payout you receive all depends on the specific pair you get.
Street bet – J.Roulette
Bets on three numbers that are a Street on the roulette table. For example, 1,2,3 is a Street, 4,5,6 is a Street and so on.
Super Times Pay – F. Video Poker
Super Times Pay is a video poker variant by IGT in which the game sometimes randomly multiplies the win for the price of a sixth coin. According to the rules screen, the multiplier appears once every 15 games
