Is there a law on casino money won?
Yes, lots of 'em. Each state has their own sets of laws and federally, you are supposed to claim your winnings, but that's pretty much on the honor system. When you claim your winnings on your federal tax, don't forget to subtract your losses. You can easily obtain a win/loss report from the casinos you frequent if you call them, or stop by their customer service or players club booth. If you don't have a players' card at that casino, though, getting...

Caveman keno strategy?
There isn't any real strategy per say, as the numbers are randomly generated and impossible to anticipate. I enjoy playing the game, and tend to do 4 numbers up or down or side by side conected. (4,14,24,34 or 1,2,3,4 for example) I tend to win more often when playing just one quarter. The 4x and 8x multiplier seems to come in more often on a single quarter bet then when I up it to 2, 3 or 4 credits. I have...

Advancements in how the machines are constructed eliminated this issue. Slot machines are now all electronic and are completely random. The reels on the machine are strictly for entertainment, display, and, as the casinos call it, 'eye candy'. Today, there is nothing you can do to a...

How many combinations are there on a one armed bandit slot machine?
That depends on how many combinations the manufacturer programs in to the machine software. Modern "Stepper" machines use a stepping motor and plastic flags on the inside frame of the reel which are read by an optic. This allows the machine to stop the reel on whichever symbol the software says it should stop on allowing the software to use what are called "logical reels". The software can be programmed with an infinite number of possible symbols for each reel. The average...

They are legally required to control the pay-out percentage, amounts vary by state regulation. (it is around like ninety some percent goes back out of the machines and pays the players.) What no one knows is, when, who and what machine is going to pay out, it's all random. There is no regulation on when or how often this money needs to be returned to the public.

Are slot machines rigged?
Of course they are. Modern slot machines can be set any way the owner wants them unless there are laws regulating pay back percentages. If state law says that payback has to be 95%, the machine can be set to pay back 95.1%. No. They are set at specific payout percentages. If a slot machine were "rigged", it would pay much lower or much more than allowed. There have been instances of this happening, but I've not heard of one for...
