    What are the odds against winning a game of Solitaire (aka Klondike)?

    1 game in 11.5 played, or 8.7% of games played

      If we are talking about Las Vegas Solitaire. Were you buy a deck of cards, the game is played and money is paid for each card that is brought to the top. The whole scam depends on how much the buy in is. Usually multiples of $52. Payoffs are multiples of $5. At this rate don't bet the ranch. You need a lower buy in. At least that was how it was explained to me many years ago. Try it you won't get 10 cards to the top with a good shuffle.

                You have much better odds at Blackjack.

                  I once was dealt blackjack five times in a row at an Indian casino on a lake in upstate Minnesota. The dealer told me he thought I had just won a quadrunner. But the pit boss said the prize was applicable only to early-bird players (before 5 pm). The story of my life.

                    explorer, did you count six deck of cards while playing blackjack like in the Rain Man movie?

                      The dealer was a young Indian boy, and he was as much disappointed as I was. After another three or four hands were dealt, he was relieved of duty and a replacement dealer took over. Just a routine precaution, I am sure.
                      I left the table. Just a routine precaution on my part.

                        "Gambling" should be looked at as entertainment. Like riding a Merry Go Round. You get off slightly dizzy and you don't get your money back. If you want to read a good book get "My Father, My Don" by Tony Napoli. My wife grew up next door to his father and her Grand Mother was good friends with his Aunt. It gives a good read to the relationship between the House and Players. And yes the House is smarter. The gentlemen in the book was well thought of by both sides of the law. Mainly because he predated Off Track Betting and Lotto and was not involved with other aspects. One of the more interesting parts of the book was how a very smart man would shoot and purposely wound a Bully in a crowded Bar and spend 4 years in jail. Of course the joke is the year was 1941. If you want to gamble you have to figure all the odds.
