    With the new coupon books out for 2017, I was wondering what is your preferred way of playing these matchplay coupons? BJ, Roulette or craps?

    Personally, I always use them at BJ. But then again, that's the only game I play.

    We use them at all three games. There isn't a whole lot of difference in expected value, although I believe playing the pass line on craps is your best bet. Roulette is usually my choice for hit and run match plays, blackjack is my default option if I'm going to sit at the table for awhile. Match plays are a fun and sometimes profitable incentive to check out new casinos, especially the smaller off-strip joints....

    If I'm with a group, we usually go RED/ODD or BLACK/EVEN on roulette and share the outcome. Good way to give yourself a chance to both win but also help cover the table. If solo, I do blackjack or craps if the table is empty and I get to shoot. Only time I ever play craps. haha

    I usually play BJ with mine! Mathematically the best bet for playing a match play is Banker at EZ Baccarat (no commission), or Player on normal Baccarat. But it is only a small advantage compared to BJ or Craps, less than a percent difference. Roulette is the worst to play match play: you give up 6% of your expected win VS Baccarat.

    Depends for me. If I plan to play for some time it is BJ. If I am on a hit and run, then it is Red on roulette.
