Default bet365 casino

Would it be +EV to transfer $100 to their casino and play war $5 at a time to $1000 and then get a $100 bonus?

The house advantage of Playtech casino war is 2.88%. So wagering $1000 with a $100 bonus would give you an EV of $71.2.

Is this bonus account specific? I don't see it advertised on the site.

it is a first time bonus into their casino. I have a poker account there. If you go to their casino page it has it. 100% up to $200 when you deposit/transfer into their casino.

If you're gonna whore it, WHORE IT. Don't screw up one of the few good bonuses around by only doing $100 of the $200 bonus.

A 10x D+B with BJ allowed bonus rarely exist anymore. Here's your BJ charts :

Lowest HA is switch

Whatever amount you feel comfortable with. The more you bet, the quicker it will go, but also increases your variance.

$2 bet on switch (it's per hand so it'll be a total of $4) will take about 900 hands (you double/split about 10% of the time). A fast switch player can probably put in a couple hundred deals per hour depending on how well you know the strat.

Also, don't forget to use the comp points as a wagering tracker.

i want to bet the best amount to not lose my $200 before i get the bonus. Also what do you mean when you say "$2 bet on swithc"? I know the strategy well. I have played BJ many times before using the strategy. When you say use the comp points as a wagering tracker you just mean to keep track of how many hands i have played right? Thanks for your help.

First off, for switch, you bet the same amount on each hand. $2 per hand = $4 total bet per deal.

The best bet you not lose the bonus is always going to be the smallest amount possible to bet. However, the smallest bet is also the most time-consuming. You really need to decide your risk tolerance to pick your bet amount. I wish Homer still posted here as he could answer this question a lot better with numbers.

I believe playing switch, if you bet $5 per hand ($10 total bet per deal), you have about a 30% chance of losing the whole bonus. This is a VERY rough estimate.

The comp tracker gives comp points on the amount you wagered. You use the comp points system to figure out the total amount wagered because a good whore never goes above or below the min amount required to wager.

Rather than keep going back and forth from the game to the cashier to look at comp points, do this:

Open the windows calculator. On the first hand, put the amount your betting into the calculator and click +. Then the next hand, put the amount in again and click =. Then click = after every hand (twice if you split or double).

For example, you're betting $2 a hand. So you click 2+ on the first hand, then 2= on the second hand, then = after each hand.

If you're going to go the win calc route, you might as well just use the BJ Tracker :
