Took "Poker" Off the List
Fundamentally different than the games described - the player is not betting against the house and an immutable house edge, but instead other players where his edge is fluid.
Is this article correctly named?
Aren't most of the games listed really table games? Vegaswikian 20:18, 9 Apr 2005 (UTC)
It states in the article that there is a 0.1 % chance of losing more than $10.01 if you play 10 rounds betting $1 each time. This is clearly wrong. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 22.214.171.124 (talk) 08:07, 9 July 2008 (UTC)
Is this really a casino game? Have not seen or heard of it. Vegaswikian 19:27, 15 January 2006 (UTC)
- Yes. It is not very popular, the house advantage is high. Accurizer 21:38, 25 January 2006 (UTC)
Don't casinos in Monte Carlo offer Klondike Solitaire as a casino game?
The article mentions that the sqaure of the volatility index is the statistical quantity variance. This is not true. Variance is (Particluar Payout - Average Payout)^2 * chance of Particular Payout summed across all payouts. In the case of double zero roulette it is (1 + 2/38)^2 * (18/38) + (-1 + 2/38)^2 * (20/38) = 0.997 . The quality PQ, which is listed as the "volatility index" is not particularly meaninful for most casino games, as few games are simply binomial win/lose. I recommend removing the whole discussion and instead listing standard deviation per hand/spin and variance (square of standard deviation). —Preceding unsigned comment added by NolanAlex (talk • contribs) 22:02, 4 October 2007 (UTC)
