Sweepering - A system for betting at blackjack which can increase your chances of winning more money. If you are winning several hands in a row then you increase the stake size eg 1,1,2,2,4,8,16. The theory is that you win more when you are winning than you lose when you are losing. As soon as you lose a hand then return to minimum stake.
Martingaling - Doubling your stake until you win. This is risky but can be effective in small bursts. Long term you will lose though.
Chasing - If you lose you chase your losses by incresing your bet size, a bad habit long term and something I am guilty of from time to time.
HE or HA - House edge/House advantage. For example slot machines usually have a HE of about 5% wheras blackjack has a HE of 0.5%
Pitboss - Usually seen at a live casino, someone who oversees the betting, watches for unusual or illegal betting patterns.
Weighted - Means that certain games only count a percentage towards the wager requirement.
Variance - Basically this boils down to luck. If you play 1250 £1 hands of blackjack and the house edge is 0.5% you should lose £6. If you are unlucky and experience bad variance (losing streaks) you could lose a lot more. Varience evens itself out over time provided you continue playing.
The smaller the WR the more chance there is of higher varience.
Sometimes I think I know everything......then I wake up.
