The Slot Expert's Guide to Winning at Slots and Video Poker

26 February 2001

You can hear me give my slot and video poker tips live on The Good Times Show, hosted by Rudi Schiffer with Frank Scoblete, which is broadcast live from Memphis on WHBQ over the air on 560AM and over the Internet on Yahoo! Broadcast on Saturday morning from 8-10 CT.


You find Anthony Curtis on just about every program about gambling or Las Vegas on television. Anthony's company, Huntington Press, publishes the Las Vegas Advisor, the standard against which all gaming newsletters are judged. In addition, Huntington Press publishes many top-notch books about casino games, including my own Slot Expert's Guide to Playing Slots.

One of Anthony's many claims to fame is teaching people how to use casino coupons to their advantage. Other writers who have educated players on how much casino coupons can be worth are Jean Scott, author of The Frugal Gambler, and John Brokopp, author of Thrifty Gambing, which is part of Frank Scoblete's Get-The-Edge Guides.

I've seen coupons good for free or discounted rooms; free slot club points, including both coupons that give you a single bonus point amount and coupons that double or triple the number of points you earn in a day; free or discounted meals; bonus payouts on certain hands in video poker or jackpots on slots; and free money, including bonus cash coupons and extra cash for a given buy-in.

Where can you find coupons? In mailings, particularly from the players club, in newspapers, in guides like Casino Player's annual coupon book or the American Casino Guide. All Casino Player and Strictly Slots subscribers receive Casino Player's coupon book and all subscribers to the Las Vegas Advisor receive its valuable Pocketbook of Values coupon book.

How much can coupons be worth? According to the Las Vegas Advisor, their Sunset Station 3-1 payout on a natural in blackjack gives the player a 6.52% advantage over the house.

This week's tip: look for coupons and use them.
