    ok well, today i just saw someone lose over £500 in the bookies over a period of half an hour

    why is it that hardly any1 ever plays blackjack on these machines, are they that bad at maths

    if they played basic strategy they would pay 3x less to the bookies, yet everywhere you go everyone seems to think the only game on these machines is roulette,

    Why cant people grasp this simple concept

    ie with a william hill bonus card, the house edge would drop lower than 0.35% on blackjack, thats nearly 8 times less then the roulette house edge?

    thats a good idea, but this is not a perfect world, at its my hobby trying to find errors that give me a favourable house edge, i have found none so far, but when you live near 10 ladbrokes and all of them give you £10 on the machine when you play £50, the odds are really in your favour

    if people play the FOBT, why do they play slots, and then complain to the government that they are rigged?

    Same reason people smoke, they are addicted. They know it's doing more harm then good both health wise and financially, yet they continue to pursue their actions because of the rush they get from it.
