Casino Gambling Losing Streaks are inevitable. We all love that gambling winning streak when it seems everything is hitting. But we all loathe those dreaded losing streaks that are looming around the corner.
When I find nothing is working to stop a Casino Gambling Losing streak, I will “play opposites” and see what happens. What is “playing opposites,,” you ask? ……..Read on………
An Unscientific Answer to Casino Gambling Losing Streaks
Do you believe in karma & luck, or do you believe in math & the House Edge? I tend to believe in math, but even the best game strategy can fall prey to the house edge. At any time, may I end up flipping from the mathematical to the mythical, superstitious, or just plain opposite strategy, depending on the game?
Is there a scientific method to my madness? Not in the least, except it helps me feel less helpless in the casino and leads me away to new experiences. Here is my disclaimer – this is not foolproof and does not ensure a change of karma, luck, success or even beating the house edge. It doesn’t prove anything – but I will “play opposites” just because…….
For example, let’s take craps. If my “3-point Molly” strategy on the pass line isn’t working, I may switch to the no-pass. The no-pass is still a valid way to play craps but won’t make you any extra friends at the table. It is the opposite of what wasn’t working, so I’ll flip to see what does happen.
Here are some other “opposites” that I play. Remember, this is my own personal thing, and I am not advocating it as a valid play for the recreational player, let alone the advantage player. It’s just sometimes “whimsy’ takes hold of me in a losing streak.
SLOTS – Many slot players have favorite slots or favorite slot manufacturers. So do I. But when they don’t bring me joy – especially financially – I will go out of my way to play slots I would never be attracted to. I like Aristocrat slots but don’t like the kind that needs three bonus symbols in a row. On “opposites day,” I seek them out.
Remember – No Logic, Be Whimsical.
THREE-CARD POKER – Basic strategy is pretty easy. But when it’s not working, I may just bet the 6-card bonus only. It’s a higher house edge, but it’s a different way to play the same game.
MINI-BAC – My opposite play when it’s not working? I’ll switch to Casino War. It’s even less to think about.
VIDEO POKER – I prefer to play DDB and JOB. But “opposites” day means Deuces Wild, or even carnival VP like Magic Deal, Multi-Streak Poker, or even Barnyard Poker. One never knows where a Royal Flush may lurk. To learn other games, click on our affiliate banner in the menu above to play video poker for free at VideoPoker.com.
VIDEO POKER – Another opposite when I can’t even get a three-of-a-kind, it seems, is switch to Four-Card Keno. There is some strategy involved, and if I play Cleopatra keno, I can look forward to bonus play.
