I've won some money on crazy vegas casino,($100 yay :p ) but I still havent played for the wager, since Blackjack, Craps, Roulette and Baccarat does not count.

I've wonded if any of you know any "safe" games to play without losing it all? I tie also means that I have played for the money.
The wager is 220$ and there is 100$ in my account.
Note that I don't know how to play poker :\

If it wasn't MG I would say learn poker! ;)
But IMHO MG casino poker games are rrrr.... 'very dodgy'!
Actually, Stud at $1 antes should only see you lose about $25 over $220 wagered - so thats fairly safe.
Otherwise - hit them slots and pray! :D

(Carnival, Big Kahuna, Spring Break & Ladies Nite recommended).

If video poker's allowed then there's no need to know how to play it as you can use the autoplay (click the "expert" button). If you just want to hold onto the money I'd play the 50-hand Aces and Faces at lowest coin size and one coin, so betting 50 cents each hand. Set it to play 440 hands.

Alternatively pai gow poker's another option (again, use the autoplay) - you're expected to lose a bit more (still only 6 dollars or so) and it has low variance. Ignore KK and stay as far clear of those slots and stud poker as you possibly can :D

You know me - I like to GAMBLE! :D

Seriously though, I quite often 'dabble' with PaiGow - and Microgaming's is 'well dodgy'! :(

Yeah, it's true that "low variance" isn't really a concept that works with on-line games!

You could play 3 car poker, just bet on the ante and play, raise on Queen-6-4 or better, no further skill required. Expected loss is about $4.50.

I don't have a problem with the variance of pai gow poker, I just always lose more than I should.

I think Aces and Faces is a great option, but shouldn't he play the 5 coins, otherwise he's going to lose 1% of his expected return.

He should generally, but I was assuming he just wanted to keep the variance as low as possible and hold on to his winnings rather than chasing an extra dollar or two in EV. Of course for larger wrs you should always play full coins - I probably would in his situation as well, but you could lose quite a lot on vp at full coins, even just wagering $200.

Yeah, but if its 50-play, doesn't that reduce the volatility (variance) quite a bit (both upward, as well as downward)?

It does reduce it, but I think the variance is higher than you'd expect as you're so dependent on the starting hand (the 50 hands tend to average out to the expected return from the cards held). So if you get a run of pat hands you'll do very well, but you just need a bad run of starting hands for your balance to plummet (I tried it this evening!).
