Gamblers Win Thousands By Exploiting Ohio Casino's Rule Blunder At 'Crazy 4 Poker'
Property Didn't Realize Ante And 'Super Bonus Bet' Needed To Be Equal
The tables were turned recently at one casino in Ohio.
The Hollywood Casino Columbus reportedly ran a faulty game of “Crazy 4 Poker” at one of its tables, which put the odds in the favor of gamblers for once.
According to The Columbus Dispatch, the game is supposed to be played with a mandatory “super bonus bet” and an initial ante by each player, and those amounts must be equal. Contrary to the manufacturer’s rules, the casino let players not put down a super bonus bet.
The reason why it was advantageous for gamblers was because in order to get paid on a super bonus bet one must have a straight or better from a final four-card hand.
Once customers became aware of the mistake (the correct rules was reportedly even printed on the felt), a line started to form and gamblers were even selling their seats. Before the casino caught on and closed the table, thousands were siphoned off by gamblers.
“At first, I thought the dealer was making a mistake,” one gambler told The Columbus Dispatch. “But people I knew were saying, ‘No, you’re not required to play it.’ I said, ’That’s nice, how do I get on the table?’”
