Abbreviation for Cumulative Distribution Function.
The value the probability function subject to the Central Limit theorem ultimately reaches.
A mathematical theorem that states, for any set of independent random variates with finite variance, that the cumulative distribution function of a normalized (scaled) sum of such variates approaches the cumulative distribution function for a normal distribution, as the number of variates increases. Under certain circumstance, the theorem states that the width of the central region of the associated probability distribution function narrows, and approaches zero, as the number of random trials (variants) increases and that the shape (of the central region) of the PDF approaches a normal PDF as the number of trials increases. If all variates are from a single uncorrelated random process, the theorem states that variance decreases as 1/sqrt(n) where n is the number of trials. Since each video poker hand is independent of all other hands, and since video poker's variance is finite, The Central Limit Theorem holds for all video poker, and the variance scales as 1/sqrt(n), where n is the number of hands. However, at the same time, the total bet or coin-in has been increasing proportional to n. Thus the variance in real units (dollars) increases without limit as the player continues to gamble.

traditional tribal games and "social games" for prizes of nominal value, all of which are subject solely to tribal regulations (IRS.gov)
bingo, instant bingo, lotto, punch cards, pull tabs (if played in the same location as bingo), and manual card games legal anywhere in the state and not played against the house. Class II Gaming is regulated by both the National Indian Gaming Commission (NIGC) and the tribes. A tribe may conduct or license Class II Gaming if it occurs in "a state that permits such gaming for any purpose by any person" and is not prohibited by federal law. (IRS.gov)
card games played against the house, slot machines, dog and horse racing, jai alai, and all other types of casino gaming. The National Indian Gaming Commission's (NIGC's) authority includes review and approval of Class III Gaming management contracts. Class III gaming is regulated by compacts negotiated between tribes and states. (IRS.gov)

Card Of the Day
A video poker or slot machine that accepts and dispenses (drops) coins.
The total amount wagered on a slot, keno or video poker machine. For video poker, the Coin-in is equal to the total number of hands played times the average amount bet per hand. The term originates from the fact that all slots machines were once "coin droppers" and is still in use today though most machines are now TITO.
