I recently did some research on expected loss but my math was off. So I found a good site that explains it well, Michael Bluejay's "Vegas Click". He worked for years with Michael Shackleford, the "Wizard of Odds, the worlds foremost authority and renowned gambling expert and author of the book "Gambling 102" Basically what it is about is how expected loss applies to gambling, and how much it costs you to play any given game for X # of hours. Although most statistics are variable the average tourist plays/gambles about 3 hours per day with a budget of around $400 to $500 dollars. Oddly enough most players expect to lose the lions share of their gambling budget. They come to Vegas with the mind-set that they are going to lose, and so they do! But, how much and at what rate, and how many trips back to the ATM or cashier's cage to cash a check, cash advance a credit card or take out a marker? You'd be surprised at the numbers. I was. It's mind boggling. Those of us that are on this board are worlds beyond the average tourist that doesn't have a clue about money management and what and how to play with simple basic strategy and money management. So, take a look at what Michael Bluejay has to say about it. His site is a labor of love with no advertising except he likes BoDog, that's it. click here: http://vegasclick.com/gambling/expectedloss.html Thanks! .
