When you place a bet with a keno runner, the house
isn't responsible if for any reason the runner is
unable to have your ticket written for the next games.
If you would have won, there's nothing you can do
about the situation. If you're playing for serious
money (something we don't suggest you do), then you
should go to the keno writer directly with your tickets,
rather than rely on a keno runner.
-- Keno runners and writers, though employees of the
casino, want the players to win. If you receive exceptional
or courteous service from them, or if you win quite
a large sum on your ticket, it's customary to offer
a gratuity to both the runner and the writer.
-- When playing in the keno lounge, you can sit in
comfort and also obtain free soft drinks or alcoholic
beverages while playing. The usual custom, when given
free drinks, is to tip the cocktail waitress.
-- If there is an error on your copy of the ticket,
if it differs from the original and is not corrected
before the games is played, it may be declared void.
Therefore, all keno tickets must be examined after
they've been issued by the keno writer. Tickets are
paid off according to the original ticket, not the
duplicate held by the player.

is a similar but slightly more game
complicated situation. On the last
card in a seven-card stud hand, you
make a flush. The player ahead of
you, whom you read to have two pair,
bets, and there is a player game behind
you still in the hand, whom you know
you have beat. If you raise, the player
behind you will fold. Further more
game, the initial bettor will probably
also fold if he in fact does have
only two pair; but if he made a full
house, he will reraise. In this instance,
then, raising not only gives you no
positive expectation, but it's actually
a play with negative expectation.
For if the initial bettor has a full
house and reraise, the play costs
you two units if you call his reraise
and one unit if you fold.
