    Default need feedback

    Hello all,

    We just launched www.worktheodds.com and would appreciate any feed back - especially for our tutorial Black Jack games.

    We are open to letting other sites use our BJ games if they have BJ content. The games would still launch from our server,but we would split the ad impressions with the site that launched the game.

    We are also 80% finished with a tutorial Jacks or Better Video Poker game.

    Thanks in advance for your time.

    -Mark Petzold

    Nice fast loading site with plenty of room for more banners

    You've got some good info in there,and the BJ tutor is a dream - can't wait to see your video poker version.

    I would like to see an additional option in the BJ tutor - I think there should be an option for you to play the game without hints but have the hints appear if the player makes an error.

    very good work - I wish you lots of luck with the site.

    P.S. Why no apply for membership in the GPWA? We've got a lot more forums and info available for members

    I really like your site!!!
    I think it's one of the best gambling sites on the net!
    I see that you promote Kiwi Casino,and as far as i remember they dont accept US players,so maybe you should reconisder promoting them.

    Good Luck

    DVS007 - Thanks for the feedback and taking the time to look at our site.

    Croupier - The BlackJack game was a pain to program,but it was relatively easy to put in the hints. We work from a dataset of about 300 hand total possibilities (what you see on a strategy card).

    The Video Poker game is just the opposite. The game functionality is finished,but we are spending a lot more time with the tutorial aspect. To put it in perspective - there are just under 2,600,000 initial hand possibilites. No matter what hand you are initially dealt,you can end up with any possible hand by discarding 0-5 cards. To do a true game analysis you have to look at just under 7 trillion instances.

    I don't know if we qualify because we just launched but I am going to go and sign up anyway.

    Playsafe - Kiwi does accept US players. They just use the standard "check with the laws in your jurisdiction" disclaimer on their site. They are one of the best sites we have ever gambled at - I highly recommend them. Their drawbacks are 1) a high playthrough requirement on their monthly bonus ($1500) and 2) Slightly lower webmaster commission (20%)

    Default video poker analysis

    lol - thought I was talking to a layman.

    Nice analysis of SuperJax

    My stats guy is using SAS 8.0

    His first program tried to analyze every possible hand. He left it run overnight and came in the next morning to see how far it got. It took about 3 minutes to analyze a hand which works out to about 15 years. Since we didn't want to wait that long,he went though 6 or 7 updates to reduce the calculations to something more manageable.

    I agree....... that site puts a lot of 'em to shame.

    Just a helpful note.... as I just visited it... I saw visible code error at the bottom of the opening page:
    <!-- GAME SCREEN EN

    Just a minor boo-boo... in case you missed it.

    Whew..... your content is great. Nice job

    Default thanks for the feedback racenutz

    We are in the process of upgrading our server which should eliminate those partial page loads.

    Where in NC are you? I am in Raleigh.

    I'm all the way at the other end of the state in Murphy. We're right on the GA and TN border down here.

    Good to hear from you.

    Note, I wasn't being critical of your site... just thought maybe you had missed something. I miss things sometimes and I appreciate people pointing it out.

    Good to hear from you.... best of luck. Hope things are working well for you!
