While the gambling world is full of lingo today Ill present some of the more common and interesting words and phrases you should know Action The action is the total amount of money thats wagered. Its also a term that can be used to signify that an amount of money is in play. Ante This is a poker term that means the amount of money one needs to pony up to get into the ac- tion. Youll see it in regular poker Caribbean Stud and other games. Bankroll Your bankroll is the amount of money you have to gamble with. It could be an amount of money for the night a week a sports season or whatever. Betting right or wrong At the craps table you are betting right when youre betting with the dice a pass line wager. And youre betting wrong when youre going against the dice. Biased wheel A roulette wheel that seems to be favoring one part of itself ball seems to land in one section a bit more often than other sections. Burn card This is the rst card of a new deck thats discarded before play begins. Cage Its the cashiers cage. This is where you cash in your chips cash checks and so forth. Face card The jacks queens and kings of a deck of cards. Field bet In craps a eld bet is a one-roll wager that wins if the combination of the dice is a 2 3 4 9 10 11 or 12. Greens Green casino chips valued at 25 each. Dealers will typically talk about chips by their color greens blacks reds etc. Hole card In blackjack this is the dealers card thats face down on the felt. House advantage This is the difference between the actual or real odds and the payout. The house maintains an advantage in all games but some are way more than others. For instance the pass line wager in craps has a much smaller house edge than playing roulette and thus that wager in craps is bet- ter for players over the long run. Random number generator Also called the RNG is a computer program that constantly picks random numbers. These numbers then generate an outcome like in a slot machine. When you go to play the slot machine a number is spit out random- ly. This determines if you win or lose. And there you have it. Some interesting gambling terms that you should know.
