"And a message to those of you who've posted that 1,000,000 in LIFETIME earnings is unreachable: it's A LOT easier than the "amount" implies. If you were to go to the Single Deck Blackjack table at the VIP Room ... AND bet the max 1600 each hand ... AND play each hand quickly (maybe 15 seconds per hand) ... and win about 50% of the total hands in an hour -- at the end of that hour, you'd leave the table with what you started."

 

That's a quote from a jacket winner. I think the overall top earner in NA, too.

The first step is to spend real money on virtual chips that have no value.

There you go my friend.

It's not as hard as people think. The key is to know what bets have the smallest house edge and play them over and over. I learned how to play most of the games by following the strategies on wizardofodds.com.

Don't get impatient and try to get the penthouse quickly by playing long shots; the only time I ever did that was to get rewards that required me to win a max bet in roulette on a single number, or winning a bet when betting on boxcars in craps for example.

Also, don't play beyond your means. For example, if you only have 10,000 chips don't go up to the VIP room and bet 1,600 chips on a hand of blackjack; you could very easily hit a cold streak and lose it all in a matter of minutes.

Without a doubt I've increased my total earnings the most in video poker. Look up the basic jacks or better video strategy on the site I mentioned above and follow it at all times. For instance, don't keep one or two high suited cards hoping to hit a royal flush when you have a pair.

Also be sure to collect your free 100 chips every Monday, and take advantage of the free poker in the poker room every day, especially if you are low on chips.

Finally, note that you don't need to have 1,000,000 chips in your holdings. Your total winning bets just have to add up to 1,000,000. Keep track of your progress on the information kiosks.

It takes awhile, but it is very possible to achieve 1,000,000 in total earnings. I have never spent a dime on chips, am almost to 2,000,000 in earnings, and the only reward I don't have is the shirt you get with a chips purchase.

Take your time, and have fun. Above all, if it feels like it isn't your night and nothing is going right wait until the next day to play again. The worst thing you can do is start betting big on longshots trying to quickly get back chips you lost when things weren't going your way.

Good luck!

Be careful--it's not that easy, trust me. IF you win 50% of the total hands is a huge if. There is no way that will hold true every time you play. Blackjack in that Casino is HIGHLY slanted in favor of the dealer. There is no way that at a real blackjack table you would EVER see that many face cards, blackjacks and combinations for blackjack, for the dealer. You can win there but you have to be prepared to take major.....and I mean MAJOR, losses. I love playing blackjack, but the programming in favor of the dealer in this particular case takes a whole lot of the fun out of it for me. I guarantee you that anyone who plans on getting to the 1 million mark by just playing that game will spend hundredof dollars on chips to get there.

 

Make no mistake about it--this is computer generated blackjack that is specifically, obviously and intentionally programmed to make a ton of money.

So you are saying that you have 2 mil in total earnings and all rewards, besides the one, just from collecting the 100 free chips per week? Sorry, but there is no way I'm buying that. No way, no how.

"Know when to hold'em, and know when to fold'em..."

 

If we play well enough, we may not have had to spend money at all...

Not true at all. I don't know how much time you've spent there, but there is no way you can "play well enough" at that Casino to spend no money. Plain and simple--it is designed and programmed to make money....and a LOT of it. If you could play well enough to have spent no money at all, it wouldn't be there. lol

Knowing when to fold doesn't do you any good when the game refuses to give you good hands. The blinds will still kill you.

I didn't say that Hopper. I just said that the free 100 chips helps when you are running low. The free chips also don't count toward your earnings, so it just gives you a little more ammo each week.

And I have earned 2,000,000 in chips; if I could let you see what I see on the info kiosk I would. That's not to say that I have ever had a ton of chips in my holdings. I think the most I ever had was about 45,000 at once; right now I have just over 11,000 chips.

I was simply trying to give hope to people who can't or don't want to spend money on chips. Would I have gotten to 1,000,000 in earnings easier and faster if I had bought chips? Absolutely. But getting the penthouse is possible without spending a lot of money.

I've played a couple of months without having to buy chips. And then we have the weekly 100 chips for free. It's possible if we have the patience.

 

If we rush, we will lose.
