Since 1990 a number of new casino games have been introduced, and here we consider two of the most successful such games, Let It Ride and Three Card Poker (Sections 16.1 and 16.2, respectively). Each is house banked and poker based, and each offers a greater advantage to the house than do the traditional games of craps, faro, baccarat, trente et quarante, and twenty-one. The analysis of each game is straightforward in principle but exhausting in practice.
