My name is Phillip also:

I play four card keno after trying everything else I have come to the conclusion this electronic game is the most profitable by far and by following these simple rules "IF" you keep your profits and don't put them back the same day or the next week play the game until you win...walk away and spend it on priorities or things you need as you will see these things as a win.

After a few weeks do it all over again.

If you play 10-spot 4-card $25 cent 16-total bet starting with $500.00 the odds of hitting an 8-spot out of 10- spot are very much in your favor.

This will pay....$2000.00 if you play 2 cards with the same numbers and the other 2 cards with the same numbers as I explain at the end of this blog.

I am a true native Nevadan "Reno" I grew up knowing those fancy casinos with huge power bills are there and growing for one reason!

They are profiting from our money.

However, 7-years ago I started gambling and followed my rules and was profiting until I kept thinking I would keep winning more and more in the same day or the next week changing my game and my rules! I started losing and chasing after I did that. I have won big! And lost big! The winning big part keeps me losing big and around and around it goes! Because I lost control.

This is the pattern I play:

I call it the Reno Arch!

I play 10 spots on each card max bet four credits each..5cent,10cent,25cent.





Remember: If you play this game Don't lose control of the rules and keep it in perspective or you will be seeking help as I am doing now and that is how I found this all experts and a man that has the same name as me.

Good luck! And good wishes!

Author of the book, "Slot Machines: Fun Machines or Tax Machines? A Technician Reveals the Truth About One-Armed Bandits", ISBN 1-55270-049-6 published by Productive Publications under the pen name Ian B. Williams. I can answer any question related to the concept, design, marketing, programming, operation, installation, repair, and maintenance of slot machines, video poker machines, and video lottery terminals, and their related equipment and machinery, within the regulated gaming industry. I WILL NOT ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS WHATSOEVER RELATED TO THE PRIVATE OWNERSHIP OF GAMING MACHINES, INCLUDING QUESTIONS SUCH AS "I JUST BOUGHT A SLOT MACHINE AND IT DOESN'T WORK...". I can help dispel all the myths and misconceptions that have permeated the print and news media about slots over the years. I can also answer questions related to gambling addiction in general and slot machine addiction in particular. Each question will be answered truthfully, without bias, whether the answer is what the questioner wants to hear. I will not propagate the myth that there are secrets to winning or beating slots, because there are none. There are no methods or tricks or other such nonsense that a lot of people think there are. I`m sorry, but reality in regard to slot machines can be a big letdown! I won`t lead anyone on. Want to know the real truth? Just ask. I can also answer general questions related to casinos except for table games.
