Can You Win Money at the Casino If You Have a Trespass Ban?

People could get a casino trespass ban for a variety of reasons. Probably the most common out of all the reasons to be banned from gambling is for getting caught cheating. However, there are also various other reasons for which it could happen. What happens if you are banned, but still sneak in and gamble? Would you get to keep the money that you won?

The answer appears to be no, the casino can keep your winnings if you are caught violating a trespass ban. This appears to be so because there was a recent Supreme Court ruling on the subject. In 1996, a man named Troy Blackford hit and damaged a slot machine at Prairie Meadows Racetrack in Altoona, Iowa. Following the incident, he was issued a permanent trespass ban. But the man kept coming back and in 2006, he won a jackpot of $9,387. The casino, after realizing that he was banned, withheld the money. Troy took them to court. Eventually, the case made its way to the Supreme Court, which ruled that the casino was right to withhold the money.

So, if you enjoy gambling, be sure to follow the rules, because if you get banned, you will not be able to sneak in and win big. It just won’t happen. What’s worse, if you do get a ban and sneak in, you might spend a lot of money and have no chance of recovering it because the casino won’t pay you out. All of your future gambling pursuits will have to be through lottery games.

Keno Games – Catch Enough Spots and You Could Win Big? A L-O-N-G Shot! Go for the Smaller Wins

Live Game – The Original Casino Version

The game is played by selecting a desired quantity of numbers from a field of 1 to 80 on a bet ticket. A total of 20 numbers are drawn for each game and the win is determined by how many of your picks (spots) are selected (caught). There’s also a “quick pick” wager available in the facilities that use a computer to draw the numbers. Just mark the quick pick spot on the ticket and the computer selects the game numbers for you.

Some casinos use 80 numbered balls in a glass “fishbowl” where air pressure ejects 20 balls one at a time.

Winning payouts can vary from $3.00 for a one spot selection up to $50,000 for a catch of 15 on a 15 spot ticket for a $1.00 game. Multi-game play allows you to play the same numbers up to 999 games. New games run every five minutes. Types of wager selections and payout amounts may vary between jurisdictions.

The odds for catching 1 spot on a 1 spot ticket are about 1 in 4. In contrast, the odds for a 15 spot catch on a 15 spot ticket are 1 in 428 billion! So what’s the secret to winning big? There is none. You’re better off playing fewer spots to avoid humongous odds, like a 3 spot ticket where the payout is $42 for a $1 bet and $210 for a $5 bet.The odds are about 1 in 70 for this wager.

Specialty games are also available for play such as the Way Ticket. This ticket allows you to combine sets of numbers to create more ways to win on one ticket. For example, the birth dates for you and your family could be one five spot game. You could play your anniversary date and year for a three spot game.

Video Version – Faster Play with Lower Payouts

International Game Technology (IGT) has developed and marketed a video version which can be found on their Game King Machines and some Video Poker Machines. All games have bonus features. Three popular ones are Power Keno, Caveman Keno, and Cleopatra Keno.Most games offer $.25, $.50, and $1.00 denominations. Here are the particulars:

Power Keno – Play up to 8 coins (credits) per game. Select up to 10 spots from the field of 80. You may also select a “quick pick”. If the last number drawn is one of your selections, your win, is multiplied by 4. For example, If you were playing a 1 credit 5 spot game and the last number drawn was one of yours, your 100 credit win would be jump to 400 credits.

Cave Man Keno – Play up to 10 credits per game. Select up to 10 spots. It’s like a cartoon with graphics from the Flintstone era. The drawn numbers spew virtual smoke from a volcano. During play, three dinosaur eggs will appear randomly on the drawn numbers. If two eggs land on your picks, your win is multiplied by 4. Three eggs win 8 times the prize.

Cleopatra Keno – Play up to 8 credits, Select up to 10 spots. If the last number drawn is one of your selections, it triggers 12 free games at 2 times the payout for winning combinations.

Downside

Be aware that video games that offer bonus features pay lesser amounts for wins than the live games. For example, a 5 of 5 catch on a $1.00 Cleopatra video game pays $225, where the same 5 spot catch in the live lounge nets you $800. Also, the pace of play on the video games is much faster. You can run through 15 games in about 15 minutes. By contrast, the live lounge calls about 15 games per hour!

Weather in the lounge or on the machines, it is fun to play and offers low betting limits but the house edge is a huge 25 to 29%! Good Luck!

I Can Guarantee You Will Win the Powerball Jackpot, But You Will Not Like What You Read

Powerball jackpots to $500 million! You hear about these massive jackpots all the time now. There was a time when $1 million was a huge sum. Not anymore. Imagine the frenzy. Imagine walking away with a cool $200 million.

Lottery operators now know that when the jackpot rises to unimaginable amounts, every man and his dog wants a share of it. It matters not that the odds of hitting the jackpot is many times lower than the odds of being struck by lightning.

In recent times, a lot of lotteries have been re-designed to make it so much harder to win. The intention is to have the jackpot roll over multiple times until it reaches an unbelievable figure. Some lucky player or players will win it eventually but, until then, everyone else is hoping beyond hope that they will strike it rich.

How hard is it to win the jackpot? Well, there are 292,201,338 possible combinations in the US Powerball lottery. The odds of winning the jackpot is a staggering 1 in 292,201,338. The average person will never in their lifetime win the jackpot. They will not even come close.

The good news is, I can guarantee you will win the Powerball jackpot. Mathematically, you can do so by playing all the 292,201,338 possible combinations. One of these combinations will surely be drawn and you will be guaranteed to win the jackpot. Sounds easy, doesn’t it?

The bad news is that it costs a lot of money to play all the combinations. Each ticket costs $2 and it would cost $584.4 million to cover all the combinations.

On 13 January 2016, the Powerball jackpot went to a record $1.6 billion. It took twenty rollovers for the jackpot to reach that sum. There were three lucky winners and each winner, if they chose to take the winning as a lump sum, would take home $187.2 million. This is after a 39.6% federal income tax.

If you are a billionaire and you had played all the possible combinations, you would have lost $397.2 million. Even if you were the sole winner, you would still have lost $22.8 million. Granted these calculations do not take into account the value of the non-jackpot prizes, but they are insignificant in the scheme of things.
