But the advantage for players of Crazy 4 Poker at Hollywood Casino Columbus didn't last long. The casino shut down the game after discovering the mistake, reopening it last week with the correct rules.

The Columbus Dispatch (http://bit.ly/WVGg01 ) reports that the problem was with the game's "super bonus bet" requirement. Players are required to put down a "super bonus bet" that is equal to their ante. The table wasn't requiring that bet, tipping the odds in favor of the players.

A spokesman declined to say when the casino started offering the game or when it was shut down after the problem was detected.
