The Casino Answer Man

26 April 2000

Q. The Las Vegas Advisor recently highly recommended both your Slot Machine Answer Book and Robbing the One-Armed Bandits by Charles Lund. I bought your book and loved it. What can you tell me about the Lund book?

G.S.,
Chicago

A. Let me start with a return recommendation for the monthly Las Vegas Advisor, the outstanding guide to the best deals in gambling, dining and entertainment in Las Vegas. The Advisor's annual coupon book also is loaded with vouchers for gambling, rooms, rental cars, meals and shows. It enables Las Vegas visitors to easily make up the $50 cost on a year's subscription.

As for Robbing the One-Armed Bandits, it's an expanded version of the booklet Advantageous Slots, to which I gave a glowing review about a year ago. Lund focuses on slots with banked bonuses. When bonuses are big enough or games-within-a-game are partially completed, the edge swings to the player. Advantage seekers play only until they hit the bonus. They're looking for profits of a few coins here and a few coins there, then they move on. That involves a lot more walking and looking than playing.

If the hit-and-run strategy is not for you, if you'd rather sit, play and chase jackpots, or if you're tied to one local casino, then the usefulness of Robbing the One-Armed Bandits is limited. But if you play in Nevada and have the patience and inclination to go casino hopping, searching out machines that have reached the player-advantage point, then this book is essential.
