Gambling/General : Win using match play coupons

By Joni Hawk

Level: Feb 23rd 2007
Match Play coupons are available in casino fun books and can sometimes be obtained by simply asking for them at the casino cage. The match play is converted into cash if the player wins.

This applies only in case a player uses a match play coupon with a real "even money" bet. For instance, if you have a $10 match play coupon and you hook it up with a $10 wager in blackjack, if you win, your $10 will win an extra $10 and the match play will be turned into real money.

Weather you win or lose the match play coupon becomes unavailable for other games. In the event of a push, as often happens in blackjack, the match play coupon stays in play until the bet is resolved.

If the player happens to get a blackjack, the coupon is converted to its face value, in your case $10, and not $15. If you want to combine the match play coupon with your own cash try limiting yourself to bets that have less than a two percent house edge.

Some suggest a hand of blackjack, but you can also try a player hand in baccarat, or a pass line bet, or placing the six or the eight in craps. These bets all have less than a 1.5 percent casino advantage.

This reveals the true value of a match play coupon slightly a little fewer than half its face value, since the chances of winning any of them are also less than half.

Some wonder if the fact that the dealer goes further in the deck before shuffling can influence the game.

This action performed by the dealer is called deck penetration, and is usually expressed as the percentage of the deck already dealt. In other words on a double deck game, 75% percent would be 78 cards played already.

Deck penetration is very important to card counters because it tells the quality of cards available in the deck before the dealer shuffles. This rule doesn't apply for basic strategy players.

The basic strategy player isn't advantaged neither if the dealer allows 50 percent penetration, then shuffle, nor if he plunges on to the 90 percent penetration level.
