Free Online Casinos – Why They Do What They Do
Posted in Online Gambling  Online Casinos  Gambling  Casinos  Online Casinos Games  Casinos Online  Online Casino Blackjack   |   Read All Comments 0 Comments
    By Jerry Whittaker It seems almost impractical for a free online casino to exist – I mean, why be in this business if they are going to offer games for free – there is no money to be made in that?! Here is the rub you see, free online casinos, are not really totally free; although they can be, and I am not intentionally trying to appear to be ambiguous. It just depends what the player wants from an online casino site. If they want to play games completely for free, then they can, but if they want to play for real money prizes for free, then there are a few things that need to be considered. In order for an online casino to offer games to the public for free, they offer these games in demo mode. Thats all well and good, but it doesnt help if the prizes are demo prizes too. What essentially the player needs to do, is take up any and all free offers they can from casino websites. There is also nothing at all that makes it law to only be a member of one online casino. Casinos online offer tons of free money to members and even to potential members, by giving away no deposit bonuses, first deposit bonuses, re-load bonuses, loyalty bonuses and other bonuses too. They do what they do to attract new members and keep loyal members playing; we get to take advantage of offers like these. Members who make deposits obviously get the best benefits, but free players may enjoy some benefits too. For example, a free online casino may offer a player a certain time to play with a certain amount of demo credits and allow them to keep a small amount of any winnings. But to keep those winnings and possibly even withdraw them, the player must register a real money account. So are these games really free? Essentially, yes they are, because the player is getting something for nothing intrinsically, however what goes around comes around, and not only is all fair in love and war, it is also all fair in the online casino industry. You scratch their back, they will scratch yours, but they will also make sure that they scratch your itch to win. Real money members who loyally play at a site are offered all kinds of incentives, many of which are free. Loyalty bonuses for example are made up of loyalty points and can be traded for free play. Freerolls are another popular benefit, where players may enter tourneys for free and also win real cash or tangible prizes. It takes time and effort to work out the free offers at online casinos, but these are genuine offers, once players learn to work with the system. All the player has to do is make the time and effort, add this to a small financial commitment, and see what the site has to offer. The discovery can be quite an adventure.

Online Casino Poker – Not Quite the Same as Online Poker
Posted in Online Gambling  Poker Rooms  Gambling  Casinos  Casino Slots  Casinos Online  Roulette  Online Casinos Bonuses  Online Gambling   |   Read All Comments 0 Comments
    By Jerry Whittaker There are a few ways in which poker or poker-based games are presented in the online space. One way is in the form of online casino poker. Now, you might be forgiven for thinking that online poker, and casino poker were exactly the same games, but they are actually not. Online poker is presented at a specialty poker room site, whereas casino poker is not considered to be a true poker game. True poker is played with however many number of players seated around a table, and playing against each other to win, where casino poker is played against the house to win. Examples of casino poker are Red Dog, Pai Gow and Caribbean Stud Poker. Examples of online poker are Texas Hold em, Omaha, Razz, Draw Poker, 5 and 7 card Stud and various others. Most websites which allow us to play casino table games such as roulette, baccarat, and blackjack, also offer casino poker games. Most sites which offer online poker, don’t offer casino poker, or any other games either, although this is all changing and there is a good deal more cross-platform gambling activity taking place online these days. Specific software platforms have to be developed fro players to bet against the house; but is a much easier software development. Poker however is highly specialized with its multi-player, multi-tabling, rake-back and other features. When an online casino poker game such as Red Dog is played, it is played on a blackjack type table, and is also sometimes called Between the Sheets, Ace-Deuce and/or Yablon. Dont ask where the names come from, I dont have a cooking clue. It was introduced into Nevada casinos during the 1980s. The shoe holds 6 decks of cards with one dealer and as many as sixteen players. Cards are valued differently, with 2 through 10 at face value; jacks worth 11, queens worth 12, kings worth 13, and aces worth 14. Play starts by placing a wager and the dealer places two cards face-up on the table. Based on these cards, the player decides whether or not to raise. A third card is dealt and if its value falls between that of the other two cards, the player is a winner – cards spreads can reach up to 11, and different payouts are calculated based on these. Doesnt seem much like poker to me, does it seem like this game to you? Nevertheless Red Dog is still classified as a game of casino poker as it is based on a typical poker hand. Pai Gow and Caribbean Stud poker also have their own rules, and play completely differently to any recognizable poker games that we know of. However poker hands still apply to win; and the house is responsible for the prize or prizes.

No Deposit Bonus Casinos – Are These Bonuses a Ploy for You to Play?
Posted in Online Gambling  Online Casinos  Casino Bonuses  Gambling  Casinos  Casinos Online  Roulette  Online Casinos   |   Read All Comments 0 Comments
    By Jerry Whittaker Are no deposit bonus casinos a ploy for you deposit money and play? Well…ever since the early development of online casinos, the "no deposit" maxim, has been common practice for many casinos. Not all casinos offer these bonuses, but by the very nature of the competition game, not all online casinos have the same huge branded marketing infrastructures behind them to help attract the attention of new customers. It is very easy to see that the big brand name sites rarely offer no deposit bonuses, while the lesser known brands do. Does this mean that players are unsafe at no deposit casinos? Emphatically, no, it does not. This is merely a marketing incentive to get new players onboard and encourage them to stay. However when gifts such as this are given away, they do come at a price. The price is loyalty, and this is pre-determined by the terms and conditions at a site. New customers are always requested to read and agree with terms and conditions, and this is simply part of the deal. From a marketing leveraging tool during the early days, no deposit bonuses have now become standard practice. They are completely above-board and are cash on the house if looked at from the correct perspective. A freebie is a freebie, and if you are lucky enough to win with these bucks, then winnings are won for free, if you dont win, then what have you lost – even with caveats attached? The advantage of choosing a site which gives away free chances to win before buying-in, also offers the potential new member an opportunity to try before they buy. When I go to a supermarket to by grapes, I want to test them to see that they are sweet and seedless. If I get nabbed for shoplifting for tasting a grape, I wont be buying my fruit there again, and not because I will be sitting in jail. The same concept is basically being applied at no deposit bonus casinos. This turns visitors into customers, and customers into regular spending friends – it is simply all about trust. There are also various ways in which online casinos give these bonuses away, they are obligation free, which means you can play and leave or stay. Some sites offer a specific time and conditions to play with, free spins, or simply a few dollars or pounds for the player to get on with the games. Whatever a site does offer, take advantage of the free deal, but also check attached wagering requirements, these can sometimes be sky-high. If the wagering requirements are ridiculous, I say take the money and run with the game, if you happen to win, then stay and play to meet these requirements and make a withdrawal. If you dont win; then move onto pastures greener.

Online Casino Blackjack – Strategy, Strategy, Strategy; That's all There is to Know
Posted in Online Gambling  Online Casinos  Blackjack  Gambling  Casinos  Online Casinos Games  Casino Slots  Casinos Online  Roulette  Online Casinos Games   |   Read All Comments 0 Comments
    By Jerry Whittaker Just like success in the real estate game is governed by location, location, location; success when playing online casino blackjack is governed by strategy, basic strategy, and basic strategy plus. It therefore stands to reason that for every game of blackjack a strategy card exists, and yes, even if you play in a live casino, a blackjack strategy card can be used. These cards apply to games where from one deck, to eight decks of cards is used, and for specific variations of the game. Most blackjack variations online are based on the basic tenets of Vegas Strip rules. Just a few tweaks here and there is what makes this simple game variations each a little different. Online casino blackjack or when this game is played live; is one of the very few casino games in which the house edge can be beaten. In order to beat the house, it is pointless to be creative, and the only way to win is to learn proper basic strategy. This means playing each and every hand by the cards. Not the card that are dealt, but by the blackjack strategy card. There is no way to win over the house if you think you have a feeling that you are doing the right thing. Yes, card counting, also counts – just dont get caught out doing this! Minimizing the casino advantage is the name of this game! There are many casino games where the player has little or no choice over whether they win or not – these are basically random games of luck. Online casino blackjack is not entirely a random game of luck – especially when using a strategy card. While a natural blackjack cannot be predicted, there are many instances where a winning (or at least not losing) outcome can be predicted. The goal is to get as close to 21 as possible without going over the mark, but we have to still beat the dealers count, so it is a bit of a double edged sword, because we need as high a card count as possible. Depending on how many decks of cards are used in a game, the blackjack strategy card, takes as many variables as it can and works them into a system of typical prediction. In other words – the likelihood of success! The strategy chart advises when a player should stand, double or split and they are very easy to use. All online casinos provide their players with access to typical strategy charts, as strange as this might seem. The prospect of winning at online casino blackjack with basic strategy is actually a long-term concept. Typically games in casinos do not offer players long term outcomes for winning, the only long term prospects are for the casino in terms of house edge. Blackjack basic strategy is what makes this game so different.

Online Casino Slots – Now That's Hitting the Jackpot!
Posted in Online Gambling  Online Casinos  Gambling  Casinos  Online Casinos Games  Progressive Slots  Casino Games  Casino Slots  Casinos Online  Roulette  No Deposit Bonus Casinos   |   Read All Comments 0 Comments
    By Jerry Whittaker Progressive jackpot prize (PJP) slot machines are an online casino slots favorite, nearly everyone likes a flutter on these games; not only because they are so much fun, but because a really huge return can be had, for a relatively small wager. Be warned however, these games, particularly progressive jackpot slots, can be very high variance games. What we mean by high variance is; that when they pay out, they pay out big time, but they dont pay out very often. Great examples of online casino slots in the progressive genre are the Microgaming series of networked games. Most PJP slots are networked, unless a specific site has its own unique slot; these are few and far between. You will find them on Playtech sites, RTG, IGT, Cryptologic, Net Entertainment, Wagerworks, Cassava, Virtue Fusion bingo sites, and many others. Understandably the games are not all created equally, and if you are punting for the really big prize money; you really cant go bigger than games such as the Mega Moolah series of games, Major Millions - also a series of games, King Cashalot, Treasure Nile, Cyberstud, Tunzamunni, Summertime, Isis, Lots a Loot, 5 Reel Triple Sevens, Fruit Fiesta, Cash Splash, 5 Reel WOW Pot, and many more. Each of these online slots also offers varied sizes of PJ prizes. Some are mega, some are major, some are minor, and so it goes. If we take a look at the millionaire winners on these games and the size of the prizes they won, it is mind-boggling to think that these were all won online; check it out: Mr R. won €2,547,086.98 Mrs P. won $4,170,128.28 Radoslaw M. won $1,242,561.85 L. won €1,171,776.63 Georgios M won €6,374,434.00 Klaus E. won $5,556,753.68 Anne C. won £1,094,112.81 Sara H. won $1,988,881.09 Julie A. won $1,745,475.28 Amanda R.won $1,427,369.74 And so the list goes on and on, there have been a whole host of millionaires made and over $27 million given away, only with these particular online casino slots. As you can see, the biggest prize ever won, went to Georgios M, a small business owner from Greece who was playing Mega Moolah at River Belle Casino in May 2009. His prize was a staggering €6,374,434, or approximately $8.69 million at the rate of exchange – this slot is actually seeded with $1 million. So the prize is never less than $1 million. If you are wondering what this player said about having had won this unbelievable prize, here it is - "I could not believe it". And certainly neither would I, now, that is hitting the jackpot! He is the highest paid winner ever, for an online casino jackpot, and this record still hasnt been broken, although it has come pretty close. Also the best thing about Mega Moolah – the prize money is paid out as a lump sum, and not as an annuity.

Casino Gambling Online – Take a Cyber Spin at Considerably Less the Cost
Posted in Online Gambling  Online Casinos  Gambling  Casinos  Online Casinos Games  Casino Slots  Casinos Online  Roulette  Online Casino Poker   |   Read All Comments 0 Comments
    One of the most prevalent reasons for punters preferring casino gambling online, is the fact that the cost of playing these games is negligible compared to a flutter on the live casino floor. Visiting a casino for one evening can add up to the equivalent cost of taking the wife away for a dirty weekend in the country, when you think of all thats involved and the only person who gets screwed is you – but not necessarily in the nicest of ways. The casino can be a distance away, which means travelling expenses, if there are children to consider – there is baby sitting costs. Buy meals and refreshments, pay for parking, petrol and still to play your games – with not necessarily the best house edge. Compare all this cost with parking your perfect posterior on your favorite comfy chair, with your laptop balanced just right, a beer and some snacks in front of you, and you might be perfectly happy. Dont get me wrong if someone offered me a few free days in Macau to write up on the Venetian, I certainly wouldnt say no. But for a lazy hour beating the bank at blackjack I would rather fire up my computer and spend some quality time, casino gambling online. Trading money with lady luck, when traipsing miles to the casino; might find you getting there and losing within the first half hour. Now is the time to pack-it-in, but you have come all this way anyway even though the timing stinks – so you spend more and end ups wit buyers remorse. There is the possibility of two-armed- bandits too, when you have a big win (or even if you dont), and while I dont proscribe to fear-mongering – the reality still exists. There are many considerations when it comes to taking a flutter on the live casino floor, where playing these games should be all about having fun and relaxing. A state of relaxation is not easy to achieve when the bet is on whether you will leave the casino intact both mentally and physically. You are still taking a risk when you gamble online but by the most part this is diminished when other concerns are out of the way. Casino gambling online takes many concerns away. For a half-hour of fun, these games cannot be beat for pure entertainment value. Play for a penny or for thousands of pounds, this choice is also yours and there is not nearly as much choice on the live casino floor. The games are just as interactive, live chat is a full function feature and with any of the big brand names, your bankrolls as safe as houses. Try it, you just might like it!

Online Poker – The Most Popular Game Played Online
Posted in Online Gambling  Poker Rooms  Online Casinos  Gambling  Casinos  Online Casinos Games  Casino Slots  Casinos Online  Roulette  Online Casinos Bonuses  Free Online Casinos   |   Read All Comments 0 Comments
    Five years ago when I first started writing about online gambling, the first project I was offered was about online bingo. At that pointing in time it was believed that online bingo might eclipse the popularity of online poker; which up until the promulgation of the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act being promulgated in the US – had been the most popular game played online. At the time Party Poker was receiving the most amount of world-wide poker traffic, because of the sheer number of fans of this game in the US. They pulled their online poker site out of the US industry under advisement from their legal team. This was not the end of online poker in the US, and online bingo did not become more popular than this game either, although many online gambling sites were no longer able to operate in the US. Not afraid of the new law and under legal advice from their lawyers, PokerStars and FullTilt as well as some other poker sites stayed and plied their trade in the US. They stepped into the breach left by Party Poker and one of the reasons they were able to do this and Party Poker was not – was because they were private owned companies; whereas PartyGaming was listed on the London Stock exchange. In the interceding years online poker in the US; through the channels of these two sites – mostly Poker Stars; have cornered the majority of the US online poker playing market, which was estimated to be around 15 million players. Now this has all changed! Fortunately these two big poker brands did have the foresight to enter the European and other facing online poker markets before the big crash took place, so, it seems as though they have not taken quite such a hard knock as Party Poker did back in 2006. On the 15th April 2011, the Department of Justice for the United States – Manhattan Division closed down these sites, and a couple of the other big brand poker sites too. Online poker fans are calling this date "Black Friday". Effectively 15 million regular online poker players were taken out of the equation; in terms of the most popular game played online, and only a few days after PokerStars dealt its 60 billionth hand. It did not take these sites long to get back up and running for their other fans. But unfortunately the people in the "land of the free" are no longer able to play this game online, which is as American to them as apple pie. This incident is going to change the face of poker in its online format in the US for the foreseeable future, and we are carefully watching and waiting to see what the outcome will be. Whatever it is, we are going to be experiencing a moment in history for this, the most popular game ever played online.

Play Poker Online and Augment Bankroll By "Bonus Whoring"
Posted in Online Gambling  Poker Rooms  Gambling  Online Casinos Games  Casino Slots  Casinos Online  Roulette  Online Casinos Bonuses  Online Casino Slots   |   Read All Comments 0 Comments
    When you play poker online, once you have got the hang of this game and as long as you are not playing from the US – where the game is no longer open to fans in this country. It is possible to augment your bankroll quite seriously by enrolling at a number of different sites and taking part in what is commonly known as "bonus whoring". As anyone who has ever played poker online before knows, bonuses are given away for becoming a new member, making first and re-deposits, and loyalty in the form of rake-back. While the term "bonus whoring" may seem a little harsh; have a sense of humor, dont take it too seriously – sticks and stones and all that…. Bonus whoring when you play poker online has actually become part of the game. Members of various sites consider their bonus earnings as part of their winning income and some of the challenge is finding ways to earn as much bonus as they can. These are the serious players who fully understand what rake-back means and have mastered the art of playing multiple tables to earn the most amount of rake-back. I mean these hot-shots can multi-table something like 24 tables simultaneously and have been known to be able to manage more without it seriously affecting their game. These are also the players who are challenging the gospel of EV – but that is another subject entirely. Any site where you play poker online and they are doing good business from your play, should offer incentives. These are legal and fully justifiable bonus offers for being an active member of a site. When online poker first became available; there was not as much competition so, the offers werent as great – now there is tons of competition between sites so the offers are fantastic. Just remember one thing – this is not easy money, nothing comes easy in this world; you have to work hard at it if it is worth having and the same applies when you play online poker. Spending too much time whoring for too many bonuses at different sites will take your time away from playing the game and this is why understanding rake-back bonuses is helpful. At one time not all sites offered rake-back, now any poker site worth their salt does. It is a bonus which comes from a "raked hand" – being the percentage or cut taken by the site for offering players a place where they can play poker online. The site then takes a percentage of the rake-back and pays it back to loyal players. The more games a player takes part in, the more rake back they are entitled to. So, players dont have to keep hopping back and forth from site to site to find bonus bucks, they can do a pretty brisk trade in whoring at just a few of their favorite sites.

Gambling Online – Taking a Look At Payment Methods
Posted in Online Gambling  Gambling  Online Casinos Games  Casinos Online  Roulette  Casino Gambling Online   |   Read All Comments 0 Comments
    Gambling online is great fun and the huge numbers of people playing these games for real money, and while there may be safety in numbers, it also always pays to be safe. Online casinos use various means of securing their members details and essentially use the same multi-firewall technology as online banking institutions, to ensure their members enjoy a trouble-free playing experience. Look out for Thawte and Verisign, these are two very important certificates to ensure that all online gambling is kept safe. There are also other ways to ensure a trouble free experience when gambling online and this is to use alternate payment methods. At one time there were not a lot of online casinos, bingo rooms, sports books – whatever, using PayPal; but there is a definite growing trend to use this payment method at gambling sites in the UK. Of course in the US, there is always crap with the DOJ, Government and so on; with regards to gambling online and this has also caused issues with many popular payment methods. Paypal for one and Neteller the other! For USA online gamblers – if they really want to play, three is always a way, and a number of ewallets are available to help them along the way. Although with the recent PokerStars and FullTilt fiasco; just be aware - at this point in time US players may be taking more of a risk than merely an online gamble! The beauty of using alternative payment methods is that credit/debit card details are lodged with the go-between. The go-betweens in the case of this article are PayPal and Neteller. This obviates the need for the processing of credit card details directly from the originator of the payment (that being you) and the casino site itself. Although this is not necessary with Thawte and Verisign technology in place; they are just additional safeguards to help players feel more secure. The system works like this: o Player uploads funds from credit/debit card to PayPal or Neteller securely - these banking details are lodged at the go-between site. They are also secured by multi-firewall technology – so from the bank to PayPal or Neteller, both ends are secured. When gambling online and loading funds to the account; the payment is made from Paypal or Neteller to the online casino, again both ends of the transaction is secure – like tying off knots in rows of fair-isle knitting. When winnings are withdrawn the payment process is reversed, with the client releasing their funds along the way. Both PayPal and Neteller are well-proven payment methods, but UK players will also find many other proven methods. There is Ukash which is pre-paid voucher and makes for a brilliant option; Moneybookers has been going for years, and of course if you really dont want any fuss, a debit or credit card is also still perfectly safe to use for gambling online.

The Online Casino – It's Incredible, the Fun You Can Have
Posted in Online Gambling  Online Casinos  Gambling  Casinos  Online Casinos Games  Casino Slots  Casinos Online  Roulette  Online Poker   |   Read All Comments 0 Comments
    The fun factor of playing at an online casino is one of the many reasons for the sheer numbers of players online today. Everyone loves a gamble, there is no doubt about that, and this has been proven time and again by the popularity of playing gambling games. Everyone who plays also loves winning; there isnt a winner amongst us who doesnt know that feeling, but what we have to remember, is, that winning isnt everything. The fun factor is vitally important, and if you come away from an online casino, not having won but feeling as though you have been entertained; this is everything! Online gambling has been a big part of life on the Internet for the past 15 years; not such a long time in the greater scheme of things; and it feels like we have always had these games. Our favorite games can be played for money or for fun and big bonuses are given to regular players. Bonuses are essentially free casino money – not something we find much in live casinos, although land-based casinos do offer benefits we cant get online. Even so, the cost of visiting live casinos can be negligible unless you are a winner or are prepared to pay the price for the entertainment factor. Tasking a risk is part of the pleasure of playing gambling games, online or otherwise. Some people are prepared to take more risk than others and this is what gives them the thrill. We are obviously all different and all have different levels of risk we engender and can still feel comfortable about what we are doing. Ascertaining this risk level is important for playing at online casinos, so that we can enjoy what we are doing. The beauty of playing gambling games online is, we can start for free; build our confidence in any game and then progress to paying a penny. Playing roulette for a penny a pop, is not possible in live casinos. We have to remember these businesses are labor intensive and they have croupiers as well as other large overheads to pay. Not so with the online casino, although many of these sites are also offering live casino games today. Live casino games are limited to specific set of games which are filmed in a studio at specific times and video live streamed to the online audience. The general gist of the games is blackjack, roulette and sometimes craps or another game. The live croupiers manage the game, and the online client takes a bet on the spin of the wheel, turn of the cards or roll of the dice. It is without doubt that there is great fun to be had and the range and quality of games offerings is incredible at online casinos. Virtually every type of gambler of every risk level is catered for and for players with no risk ability at all – these games can be played for free. What have you got to lose – a penny, a pound, your disillusion or absolutely nothing at all?

Take An Online Casino Gamble
Posted in Online Gambling  Online Casinos  Gambling  Casinos  Online Casinos Games  Casino Slots  Casinos Online  Roulette  Play Poker Online   |   Read All Comments 0 Comments
    Dress in Your PJs and Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is Taking an online casino gamble is just as much fun if not more than; getting dressed up, taking the car out of the garage (or catching a bus), driving miles and miles through the pouring rain, struggling to find parking and eventually finding someone else has got their bum stuck to the lucky seat of your favorite game, and has no intention of moving (estimated preparation time to get playing – two to three hours!) Doesnt sound like much fun when you can come home from work, stay warm and dry in your own lucky chair, grab a beer out of the fridge and snuggle down in your snuggy PJs with a snack, login and play your favorite game (estimated preparation time to get playing – 15 minutes!) You can swap from one game to another in a matter of mere minutes or even seconds without getting lost. I dont know about you, but I tend to lose my sense of direction completely when I am in a live casino (?) One can even play slots and roulette, video poker and bingo, craps and Lord of the Rings all at the same time. An online casino gamble is meant to be fun and if you have absolutely no appreciation for risk, but enjoy playing these games, you don’t even have to take a real gamble. Simply play in demo mode or with free time or no deposit bonuses. It is even possible to win for real when you play for free, although this won’t be a huge amount of money – the amount is generally capped; its still real money even if its only 10p. If you find you do want to risk some funds when you have mastered the game, go on – put your money where your mouth is and make a deposit. The size of the prize on virtually every game is governed by the size of the wager and virtually every wager can be met by a penny or two. There are even casino games such as roulette, blackjack and craps which can be played with pennies and there are PJPs to be won. When you are not prepared to risk a great deal; simply don’t play for a great deal of money. The games are all the same; graphics are great if not better, your time is your own and so is your money. An online casino gamble can teach you how to play in a live casino – learn all the rules and walk in feeling like a pro the next time you take a live gamble. There are so many benefits to playing online that I honestly cannot name them all in this very short piece. Put your money where your mouth is; test your powers of prediction and whatever you do, and how you do it, you will have a very good time.

The Gambling Online Casino – Is There Any Other Kind?
Posted in Online Gambling  Online Casinos  Gambling  Casinos  Online Casinos Games  Casino Slots  Casinos Online  Roulette  Gambling Online   |   Read All Comments 0 Comments
    By Jerry Whittaker The only kind of gambling online casino is the "gambling" kind, and casinos have always been irresistible for thrill seekers all over the world. The gamble dates back a lot further than the wild, smoky, frontier saloon where a poker game was always in play and the promise of easy wealth – earned in a fun way, has always been the draw-card. There is a dangerous, edgy allure to playing casino games, so how does the new online delivery shape up in the face of the loss of intrigue and romanticism? Perhaps some people believe the cyber-touch to be a clinical approach to playing casino games, which saps all the fun out of it. Well…think again…cyber sex is also not a thing of the past and your biggest sexual organ is your brain, so, it is the thought of it that turns you on and not necessarily the act! Are players deprived of the atmosphere of the thronging casino floor – not necessarily?! I personally feel like I am trapped inside a giant pin-ball machine with no chance of escape when I visit a live casino – I feel the same in a crowded supermarket too; so I never shop when its busy. Many people feel they same way; they are not charmed by crowds, no matter how charmed they are by the games. The gambling online casino may be the equivalent of a clinical, sexy-less way to wager, but not all players feel the same way. We can still feel the tingle when we hear the coin tray jingle, without being blinded by bright lights and jostled for positions at the slots. Playing on laptops in living rooms, the coin tray serenades might not be as loud, but are also not right in-your-face, and dont give your brain a pain. There are many valid reasons for the exponential growth in popularity for gambling online casinos, and avoiding the mass of humanity which throngs the average casino floor; for me is the most valid reason. Just like me, there are in increasing amount of gamblers who prefer the cyber-casino newcomer. They are enthusiastic about the fact that they dont have to wait for a seat at their favourite slot; that the house edge is less and prizes as well as incentives are incredible. We are becoming devotees of the new brands of bingo, spinners of the remote roulette wheel, and as individuals - this is the way we like to play. Ardent fans of the gambling online casino are often live casino converts – in my case this is certainly true, and although cost is a big factor driving this trend, in my case this is not true. Perhaps I am happy with my own company and like Bugsy Siegel tried to advertise when he opened the Flamingo Casino in Las Vegas: "You are invited to the fabulous Flamingo. Come in, have fun, make no trouble, and you wont get hurt." Well when you play from your lounge on your laptop and indulge in a drink or two – the most hurt you could probably get is losing your shirt.

Best Online Casinos – Get Your Buzz in the Betting Bizz
Posted in Online Gambling  Online Casinos  Gambling  Casinos  Online Casinos Games  Casino Slots  Casinos Online  Roulette  Online Casino   |   Read All Comments 0 Comments
    When we talk about the best online casinos, we are talking about the big brand names, but even so it is all a matter of taste, and what the player wants out of a site. If they are looking to play for a long time and not necessarily regularly cash out winnings, then online brands with big bonuses may be considered to be the best online casinos. On the other hand, for high rollers and jackpot chasers who want to cash their money out quickly, a better known brand is the name of the game. Some sites specialize more in specific games while others offer games across the board. A good example would be a poker site, where only poker is played. But then you get brands which offer games across the entire gambling gamut. In this instance we mean brands such as William Hill and Ladbrokes which offer casino games, skill games, financial betting, sports betting, lotteries, bingo and poker. Sites such as Virgin Games for example offer casino, bingo and poker where only one gambling wallet need be used; this site is also considered to be one of the best online casinos. When we talk about one gambling wallet, this essentially means one account which can be used across all games products. With Virgin, the client opens one account and earns points across the entire spectrum of games. This brand is considered the best, not necessarily because of its promotions – ongoing or otherwise; while not massively dynamic are certainly fair - but because of their loyalty program. This is the V*Points system and because Virgin brands are widely diversified, many brilliant benefits can be had by collecting V*Points. For regular bettors getting the buzz in this bizz; earning points can be hugely worthwhile, especially in the case of this site. While it is not my aim to intentionally promote Virgin, I have to make an example of the benefits of being a member. Being rewarded for loyalty at the best online casinos is a vital aspect of being a member – loyalty is worth being rewarded! Most casinos allow the player to trade loyalty points for free casino bonuses, few have shops and auctions where players may use point to purchase products or make bids on certain prizes. Virgin allows its members to trade 1 V*Point for 1 Virgin Atlantic flying mile. They also offer special deals on weekend flights to European cities on weekends. It costs 1250 loyalty points for example – to fly to Barcelona, Vienna or Paris for the weekend. This in pound value – costs the player the equivalent of £12.50. Point can be traded for hotel stays, cash, shopping vouchers, Virgin experiences, spa treatments and whole lot more. Now… when shopping for the best online casinos, benefits such as this brand offers makes the playing experience so much more worthwhile, and they need to be seriously considered. This loyalty program cannot be beat by any other site in this bizz, but its like I said in the beginning. It all depends what the player is looking for.

Casino Casino Gambling Online Online – Make What You Want of That?!
Posted in Online Gambling  Online Casinos  Gambling  Casinos  Online Casinos Games  Casino Slots  Casinos Online  Roulette  Online Casino Gamble   |   Read All Comments 0 Comments
    First when I mention the words "casino casino gambling online online" its not because Ive got a stutter, and I am not making a typo; this is for SEO purposes, just take it as meaning "casino gambling online" and get over it; its the way of the world…well the way of this article anyway. The fact of the matter is; and your most important consideration should be, not my SEO capabilities, but what you can learn about playing online casino games. To gamble online, you dont need to be skilled at using a computer, or skilled at gambling games. There are very few online casino games which need skill in order to play. Bingo, the lottery, keno, scratchies, slots and pull tabs, casino war and other games require absolutely no skill to play – luck is the deciding factor. Roulette and craps are also completely random money games where the only skill in playing lies in how to place bets on quite complex wagering tables. Neither the spin of the wheel or the roll of the dice can be controlled, changed or manipulated. Playing poker requires skill although luck is also involved. The game of video poker requires certain strategy to lead to winning outcomes and if you play backgammon or scrabble online for money, both skill and strategy is required. Casino casino gambling online online – oh – oh…here we go again; just ignore it! A gamble would not be called a gamble if no luck at all was involved, so masses of skill is not required for casino gambling online. Games may be played for very low wagers and it is possible to turn pennies into pounds. But it also pays to bear in mind that the odds are just as able to lose those pennies as win pounds. Online casinos may offer free spins on certain slots, bonus bucks to reward loyalty, and free bingo for real cash prizes is very big news at the moment. If you have a penchant for playing online bingo, you might like to know that Costa Bingo is offering a free bingo game with a prize of £100 000 guaranteed cash. Yes…you read right! This is a winner takes all game – there is only one prize and this amount is what one player WILL be taking home on the 31st May 2011. The game is for members only, and they need to earn free bingo tickets to play the game which celebrates their 2nd birthday. If you dont fancy playing online bingo – perhaps the size of this prize might change your mind? Itll cost you £10 to join up, but then the site gives you £20 free and allows you to play free bingo games with real cash prizes for the next 24 hours. Now make what you want of that too.

Roulette Casino Rules – Play the "Definitive" Game and Have Fun!
Posted in Online Gambling  Online Casinos  Gambling  Casinos  Online Casinos Games  Casino Slots  Casinos Online  Roulette  Gambling Casinos Rules  Gambling Online Casino   |   Read All Comments 0 Comments
    All that is a casino is defined in players minds to a degree by the game of roulette – in fact, roulette rules! The Roulette casino is simply the way a casino is sometimes described by people who play this game, but you will obviously find other games playing too. The spinning of a roulette wheel online or in a live casino is also exactly the same game but with a slightly different delivery in terms of the electronic format – all rules are the same. It is the quintessential game of chance, where many other games of chance have their basis in the spinning of a wheel or a reel; think slots and wheels of fortune, even massively popular fun games like Twister. As a game of chance, this game is completely random, it cannot be controlled or a winning outcome deciphered by skill. Although there have been one or two punters who have taken their theories or science to casinos and quite literally broken the bank. But bear this in mind; the banks have never been broken with a so-called "fool-proof" strategy, so, never buy into these or you will be the fool. Save your money and take an extra spin on the wheel – it will probably buy you more luck. Roulette casino games are known as the "King" of casinos games and there are only a few version played world-wide, where the rules are slightly tweaked. The American roulette wheel carries a "00" space, so these have more of a house edge; while European roulette wheels carry only one "0" space, which lessens the house edge for the casino. Why people even play American roulette; we have no idea? Probably because any gambling is a principle inherent in nature! The premier game played world-wide is therefore most popularly European Roulette; it has its birthplace in France, as an initial brain-child of Blaise Pascal - a very brainy inventor. And although he never got his perpetual motion machine of the ground, we got a perennial favorite gambling machine out of the deal. It was a game for the elite at first, established in Monte Carlo for the Royal family and this was its mιtier for quite a few years – probably the reason for the moniker "king". I could use up this space going on about the table and the rules and so, on, but it would take up a lot more space than this available and all you really need to know is how much fun playing can be. When playing at an online roulette casino, you can learn to play for free and even when starting to bet – low rolling games can be found. When we say "low rolling" we mean for as low as a penny a wager. What better way could there be to learn how to play a game that is so much fun, and so widely enjoyed everywhere - all over the world.

Online Gambling Casino – Let's Organize a Wager!
Posted in Online Gambling  Online Casinos  Casino Bonuses  Gambling  Casinos  Online Casinos Games  Casino Slots  Casinos Online  Roulette  Best Online Casinos   |   Read All Comments 0 Comments
    The online gambling casino is basically a virtual extension of the live casino industry, made available to assuage mans desire to play games of chance. Taking a gamble is so intrinsic to human nature, that it is not just something wicked westerners do, Eastern people love a game of chance too, and they love the online gambling casino. In fact the propensity to gamble is completely without any anthropological classification - it takes place universally across all cultures in one form or shape. The fact that these activities are regulated and controlled by laws, is for precisely the same reason that we pay tax – a lot of money is at stake, and so-called illegal gambling activities wont see the government getting their share. If it were not for the fact that we had online gambling casinos, live casinos, poker rooms, bingo clubs, totes and bookies, we would be partaking of gambling games of our own making, and we would be playing them underground. The thing about this; as government who are not regulating online gambling games have found out to their poverty; is that someone always gets rich. The most obvious person to get rich, besides the odd winner or two, is the person who puts up the money to guarantee any potential winnings, or at least the person who goes to the trouble of organizing these games. The concept of the online gambling casino works in the very same way as this off-the-wall example, which simply illustrates how easy it is to organize a gamble under legitimate cause. An Inuit hunter, doesnt feel like working this hunting season – he feels he is getting too long-in-the-tooth; but, he is a clever man and has some money put aside because he has hunted hard all his life. He organizes a competition, the prize is the latest snow mobile. The winner is the hunter who brings in the most seal weight for the community. They all have to pay a small entry fee to get in with a chance to win a big prize; this covers the cost of the prize or prizes, which the clever hunter gets on the cheap for advertising the snow mobile dealer as a sponsor. He collects the money and all hunters get involved, event he neighboring community. Rules are drawn up and the competition starts - the clever hunter starts offering odds on who the winner will be. The community places wagers and does this all hunting season, as long as the game is on and odds fluctuate up and down. At the end of the season everyone is a winner in one way or another. The community wins as they have their igloos filled to the brim with equally shared out seal meat, the competition winners obviously win, the snow mobile dealer gets lots of new business, because the winners of the odds on bets have been admiring that snow mobile for themselves. Last and certainly by no means least the clever hunter who organized everything from seated deep in a polar bear skin Lazy Boy, wins the most and is now not only a clever man, he is a very rich man too.

Casino Games Free – It's All About Attitude
Posted in Online Gambling  Online Casinos  Casino Bonuses  Gambling  Casinos  Online Casinos Games  Casino Slots  Casinos Online  Roulette  Roulette Casino Rules   |   Read All Comments 0 Comments
    You name it, whatever casino games free you want; you can have them if you like. Just be warned, before you start out playing for free, you may get as mad as a snake when playing the new Snakes and Ladders slot and you get into the bonus round, only to find that you are playing for casino credits not money and that £1 600 you won is also not real money. When you play casino games free, you play free and you dont win for real, no matter what any site tells you. However there are a few different ways of looking at this, it just depends, are you a "half full" or "half empty" person? If you are a half full person and you have the patience of Jobe, you can work out many ways to play casino games free and probably win a little into the deal. If you are a "half empty" person and everything you look at is a scam – just keep playing for free credits and telling yourself that everything is a scam; that the slots reels are rigged, the roulette wheels are jigged and the blackjack deals are dicey. You see, playing at an online casino, like playing at any casino, is all about attitude. Online casinos offer their members and guests alike the opportunity to play games for free. They furnish you with a set amount of time or credits, (also check the rules) and off you go – play to your little gamblers hearts content. They want you to be enchanted by the games, so that you will want you to play for real and there are some very enchanting games. Just like the greengrocer will give you a sample of the green seedless grapes from South Africa, so you can taste just how sweet they are. There is nothing wrong with that and it makes you an informed buyer. The only game we dont advocate playing free is poker; playing for money is the heart of this game but, in any case from the purist point of view, poker is not a casino game free or not. Playing casino games free is also a good way to tell if you enjoy playing a game, for example I dont like pub fruities if they dont have cherries in them (it is one of those gambling idiosyncrasies), but I dont know if I really like the game unless I have tried it out, a free trial is the best way to try a game you think you might not like. Then you dont suffer buyers remorse. There are a lot of good reasons for playing free games, and each player has their own, so play them, why not, you certainly have nothing to lose, but like I said in the beginning, its all about attitude.

We Don’t Care What You Say, We Love Online Bingo!
Posted in Online Gambling  Bingo Halls  Online Casinos  Gambling  Casinos  Online Casinos Games  Casino Slots  Casinos Online  Roulette  Online Free Casino   |   Read All Comments 0 Comments
    By Jerry Whittaker So many people have this stereotyped misconception of what a bingo player should be and how they are expected to behave. Online bingo has dispelled any stereotypes and continues to do so year after year. During 2010, the amount of players enjoying this game online was more than double of any other gambling activity sector, and bingo is just one game! Popularity increased again by something stupendous like 28.something percent!! The online poker industry cant say that, the casino industry cant and no matter how popular sports betting is; they can say it either. In fact if we were so bold to dare we would say "online bingo is more popular than `you know who"! Online bingo is a mainstream industry and looks set to continue to be. Experts were predicting years ago that they had no idea when this market would bottom out. Today they dont even bother to use the catchphrase "bottom out" in relationship to this simple form of entertainment that is a soft gambling activity. The prizes are simply fabulous, the companionship that both young and old, male and female, able bodied and disabled find at these sites is nothing short of incomparable. It is social networking in its purest form and everyone who plays it loves it. So what about the prizes you ask? Well traditionally bingo has been famous for giving away all sorts of prizes. Odds and ends donated by local businesses as well as cash to possibly cheer up the aged, or raise funds for charity. Online bingo still sticks to tradition and does this, they organize special games for the needy, but these sites run 24/7 and although a few are dedicated to charitable concerns, but the most part they are businesses, just like live bingo clubs. The beauty of playing online bingo and because of its rapid growth, is the fact that most (not all) of the good sites are incredibly competitive. You will find them giving away tons of cash of course and quirky prizes too that are typical of the game. Foxy Bingo for instance has a competition running in conjunction with Heinz Beanz to give away 38 one kilogram packs of the new fridge packaging product – in other words a years supply of beans. You may laugh, but they are in touch with the heart and soul of the UK, because 1 million people a day in this country eat Heinz Beanz for their dinner! The cross marketing possibilities are endless. Last year they also gave away hundreds of electrical/electronic goods, a Volkswagen Fox Car, a caravan, one £10 000 prize free bingo game, holidays, £10 000 guaranteed every Friday night and thousands of other guaranteed cash prize games, movies, hampers, spa treatments, shopping vouchers, thousands in free bingo games, DVDs and box sets, CDs, jewelry, perfume, organized a cruise, a 5th Birthday party for their members to get together and Foxy fixed a few things. But, we cant be expected to remember everything and neither can Foxy, after all this is only one online bingo site and we have run out of space.

    The live gambling industry was believed to be so recession-proof that just like Achilles, they continued to strut their stuff in the US without a care in the world. They made sure that they had no competition from casino games online – also effectively shutting off any possible areas of growth for their own use, this may now have become their Achilles Heel. It is no secret that Wynn, together with most major live gambling concerns in the US played their role in lobbying for UIGEA, believing that online gambling would cannibalize their existing business; rather than being sufficiently forward thinking to know that the two industries complement one another and provide a valuable global catchment area for additional revenue streams. The biggest concern of them all however – Harrahs always believed that online gambling was the way of the future – they were outnumbered and are now wearing the same hair shirt. Apart from the fact that Harrahs actually does hold shares in UK gambling concerns and operates a few sites out of the UK. How well these sites are doing is difficult for me to say; not knowing the facts? But they did come onto the scene late and of course Harrahs is unable to tap into the vast potential market of US gamblers. The online casino gambling industry has demonstrated that it is recession-proof, and up until 2008 it was believed that the same applied to live casino industry in the US was also recession-proof. This is not so today! Because of this belief, investors flocked to purchase stocks and as late as 2007 the stock prices of companies such as Las Vegas Sands reflected this invulnerability by trading at $144.15 per share. Just 16 months later these shares were trading at around $2 each. These large public companies argued that they had succumbed to the same depression which has devastated the US property development and automobile markets. However in the face of all this talk of recession the argument has proved to be false because of the continued success of casino games online; global recession or no. The rot set in as casinos in the US moved away from their core business – driven by just plain greed. A casino is in the business of providing punters with a place where they can gamble; by its very definition. US gambling houses became luxury property developers, entertainment centers, inn keepers and restaurateurs – their reach exceeding their grasp, without the substantial backup that the casino games online life-line offers. They gambled themselves – on credit, and to huge cost, turning Las Vegas into a family destination. Gamblers dont want luxury family destinations, they want to gamble. The online industry has not lost its focus, overheads have been kept low and they are in the business of providing a focused product to a targeted group of consumers. If they want to expand they build a new website, not a billion dollar sky-scraper. Gary Player was right, and nothing rings truer for this industry "overheads are vanity and profits are sanity".

The Online Free Casino – Make What You Want of It!
Posted in Online Gambling  Online Casinos  Casino Bonuses  Gambling  Casinos  Online Casinos Games  Casino Slots  Casinos Online  Roulette  Casino Games Online   |   Read All Comments 0 Comments
    What can we make of these words – the "online free casino"? We can actually make anything we like of them as long as it is the name of a gambling game. We are talking craps, baccarat, roulette, pai gow, keno, scratch cards, slots, gin rummy, blackjack, video poker; you name it, you can even play games such as bejeweled, monopoly, price is right, wheel of fortune and hundreds of others as gambling games today and your friendly online free casino will let you play them for…well… free! Of course you wont be winning for free, but if you register as a member and play for real, they will give you lots of free stuff. It is a complete fallacy that people can play at an online free casino at absolutely no cost to them and still win cash prizes, although there are a few ways around some of the systems in place. For example if you fancy registering at an online casino they may advertise that they give you $500 and one hour to play for free. They may also advertise that what you win you get to keep. While this is all true remember an act of omission is as bad as and act of commission, and these sites never advertise that there are terms and conditions to these offers. The dreaded "small print"! By all means take them up on their online free casino offer, play for the hour with the $500 credit and have yourself some fun. But if you want to get in with a chance to win when you play with this money always read the small print. You may find that you have to place at least 100 bets during the hour. You may also find that if you win less than $20 over the $500 mark, you cannot keep these winnings; further to this, the winnings will probably be capped at $100. So, if you meet all the criteria, in essence the most you can actually win is a total of $100! This amount is certainly a lot better than a swan dive into a deep fat fryer. You have fun for an hour and you have won $100 for free. Be warned, it is no mean feat to meet these criteria – all three and there is never less than three. If you have any idea how badly taken the utterance of the word 7 at a craps table is taken, it is the "devil-word". 3 should be the devil-word for trying to win free casino bonuses. Nevertheless, there are loads of these sites lined up for you to try, so try them all if you like. One thing is for certain, and that is that it wont cost you a copper penny and if it doesnt work out and you still have the patience to try there are plenty of other sites to make other attempts. Or you could just become a pay for play member and get it over and done with!

Looking for a New Casino – Why Not Try Playing Online?
Posted in Online Gambling  Online Casinos  Casino Bonuses  Gambling  Casinos  Online Casinos Games  Casino Slots  Casinos Online  Roulette  Casino Games Free   |   Read All Comments 0 Comments
    Are you a gambling game lover? You enjoy the odd flutter but it is beginning to be a bore to climb into your car, pay for petrol, drive, find parking, pay for parking, get into the casino, find drinks, pay for drinks and then gamble the night away, drive home and collapse into bed exhausted! Only to find the same old grind faces you the next time you get the urge to play. Looking for a new casino – why not try playing online? This way you have thousands to choose from, just from the click of the mouse. There is also the comfort of your favorite armchair if you like, with a bottle of your favorite beverage balanced next to you (keep away from computer), a plate of salmon and cucumber sandwiches and no-one to blow your stack over when they plonk down right in front of you, in the seat of the game that you wanted to play. If this sounds like heaven to you, invite a little piece of heaven into your home, from virtually anywhere in the world. If you dont like the new casino you have chosen, choose another, this is a buyers market, and quite honestly if you are a UK player, the world is quite literally your oyster in terms of choice. Certainly if this is your first foray into the online casino genre, we would suggest that you stick to tried and trusted brand names. Also, more than two thousand operators want your business, dont be blinded by greed, every new casino you look at will offer you something for free. This doesnt happen much in live casinos for the normal run of the mill slots player for example. Obviously the more you spend in a live casino the more benefits you receive, but with online casinos the competitions so steep, that you dont even have to spend anything first in order to get something for nothing! Take care – the general rule of thumb for anything online that looks too good to be true; means it generally is. This rule does not only apply to any new casino you might choose! It is for this reason we say that you should stick to the brands you know, and if not know, at least recognize. In the case of the UK this is simple if you play at Circus Casino or Maxim for example, you will also find this online, if your brand is Blue Square, you wont have far to look Well trusted betting brands such as William Hill, Betfred, Totesport, Paddy Power, Littlewoods and many others also offer new casino players online a really nice deal too. Bear in mind, if the William Hill deal of £100 free doesnt look as attractive as the unknown site which offers £1000. With Will Hill you will still be alive to enjoy your winnings, at the unknown site it may take until you are 105 to withdraw these.

The Casino Download – To Download or Not to Download; is This Any Longer the Question?
Posted in Online Gambling  Online Casinos  Casino Bonuses  Gambling  Casinos  Online Casinos Games  Casino Slots  Casinos Online  Roulette  Online Casinos Gambling   |   Read All Comments 0 Comments
    In the past the question to "casino download" or "non-download" may have been a priority for joining or not joining a site. Today, this is a virtual non-entity as a question as there are so many games which can be played through the most advanced Flash technology and there is absolutely no need to download a whole load of software in order to be able to do this. Some online casinos may still tell you that for the best possible quality game, a download will be necessary, but is this necessarily true? If you want to go chuntering through the casino or poker room in a computerized representation of yourself as a player – on other words; play Avatar, you can, you will have to download the software. Remember that this is advanced 3D technology, but there will come a day and I am sure very soon, when not even this will be necessary any longer. You will just be able to point click and in a "flash" there you are; loping through the casino floor after plopping your favorite virtual Stetson on your head, choosing a purple speech bubble and seeking out the highest stakes, no-limit Texas Hold em game you can find! In terms of game play itself, there may be some games that are not available to a player unless they download the software; lets look at Microgaming for example. This software developer offers more than 500 different games and over 1000 variations. This means there is only one version of Sunset Strip Blackjack, but if you add insurance rules to one version and take away doubling rules in another; this already gives you three different versions of the game. Microgaming offers close to fifty different version of blackjack – how many version do you want to play? Weigh up the pros and cons, is it worth a casino download to you? Microgaming has also recently released Quickfire, which does not only make offering games easy for the operator; it also makes them easy to play for the client. There are 150 games on this product and it is not a platform specific software so it allows poker clients to offer casino games, bingo clients to offer poker games and many more mobile games too. Even look at the mobile casino, at one time these games had to be downloaded one at a time, now this can be done in a bundle! So I really believe the question of the casino download will soon be just a moot point and as more and more players turn to Flash and enjoy real money play in this way, they will even forget there was ever such a thing as a download. If you are asking yourself this question right now "to casino download, or not to casino download?" try the "not" version first, you may be pleasantly surprised.

Betting Tips – Sadly Paul the Oracle Dies: An Obituary
Posted in Online Gambling  Online Casinos  Gambling  Casinos  Online Casinos Games  Casino Slots  Casinos Online  Roulette  Casino Download  New Casino   |   Read All Comments 0 Comments
    In one of the most surprising betting tips resources of 2010, we saw Paul the Oracle Octopus choosing the correct winner in all seven matches for Germany during the 2010 FIFA World Cup. He became famous world-wide and appeared on front page Newspapers everywhere. Paul was a German octopus of British birth and he actually predicted that Spain would win over Germany, and that Germany would come third to Paraguays second place in the World Cup – once again his oracling proved to be correct despite the death threats from German football players and fans alike. The truth must after all, out! Sadly one of the best betting tips-ters for this massive international event has met his demise. Apparently he died of old age – all two and half years of it, and went peacefully in his sleep. You may be happy to know that the eight-legged wonder tipster did not land up as an appetizer on the plate of Bastian Sweinsteiger and no foul play is suspected at this stage. Germans reacted to their own oracle with horror when they did not like what he saw for their – albeit also his, fabulous footie team in his crystal ball. To Pauls abject horror the threats were so veiled as to be recipes for calamari on Twitter, as well as other less tasteful suggestions. Pauls betting tips and prophecies were first brought to public notice during the 2008 European Championship. Still only a small seer squid at the time, he was only just honing his skills and picked the winner five out of six times from inside his tank in Oberhausen, Germany. By the time of the 2010 FIFA World Cup, Paul had matured into a full-blown "Psychic Octopus" with extraordinary extrasensory powers. Not only do the Spaniards love octopus traditionally as a delicacy, residents of the Iberian Peninsula found a new type of love in Paul and wished to offer him asylum as a safe harbor from German threats. According to Spanish midfielder Sergio Busquets at the time; he said "We are in love with it; we want to name it Pablo!" Elina Espinosa - environmental minister of Spain was very concerned for the welfare of the charming cephalopod, especially after his Quarterfinal pick. Also known to the Spaniards affectionately as "Pulpo Paul", he was regarded as a national hero, despite residing in Germany. His prediction of their first ever World Cup victory will remain in the memories of Spanish football fans, players and all the punters who won money with his betting tips. Paul was born in England, but we believe he died with a Spanish heart. After retirement he started raking in the cash for Germanys 2018 World Cup bid, starred in a Chinese movie and started a range of branded merchandise, with proceeds going to charity. After a moving memorial featuring a video of his more "beautiful moments" a permanent shrine is now in place at the Sea Life Aquarium in Oberhausen.

Play Bingo – Bust the Recession and Beat VAT to Pulp
Posted in Online Gambling  Bingo Halls  Online Casinos  Gambling  Casinos  Online Casinos Games  Casino Slots  Casinos Online  Online Bingo   |   Read All Comments 0 Comments
    British Bingo, is actually the “Great British Game” and since this game came live to play online, growth has gone through the roof year-on-year. Once again in 2010, the amount of people who play bingo online has increased by more than 28%. We speak with special reference here to mostly UK and European bingo players. Bingo, casinos, sports betting and poker online have proven to be the perfect recession busting business. If you play bingo too it is a simple game to play, easy to win and a great way to entertain yourself as well as the most fabulous value for money. Bust the recession yourself and play bingo to win! Bingo may be a great business to be in, but this has nothing to do with the player; what does have to do with the player however, is the prizes, promotions and special offers this highly competitive industry gives away. Currently everyone in the UK is pretty miffed about the fact that VAT has been increased to 20% and although the argument that this affects the poorest of the poor doesn’t cut the mustard; the poorest of the poor (like me) might like to know that there are currently loads of great VAT busting online bingo giveaways. Not only that, but you can play bingo online for free and win real cash prizes! This is not just a VAT special it takes place every day at most sites, 365 days a year, 24/7 at some sites like Costa and Cheeky Bingo, with very worthwhile £££s up for grabs. Because there is such massive competition between online bingo sites, they all want your bingo business, and every player is a very important player - VIP. This means there are VAT busting offers all over the place, for example play at Posh Bingo for £150 shopping vouchers every week currently and more regular offers like this. There is £2 500 Spa Vouchers up for grabs on Mothering Sunday and £1 100 as a prize in an indecent proposal for Valentines Day. If you think these prizes are great, they are but, when you play bingo it gets even better. Take 888 Ladies for example in the Golden Ticket giveaway. These bingo tickets cannot be purchased for love nor money they have to be won playing games. The top prize is ...get this...£5 million and the minimum guaranteed is a mahoosive £50 000! Simply play bingo to win Golden Tickets for free. As VAT has only been increased on non-essential items, you may not believe that the latest, laptop, iPhone, Kindle, iPad, iPod, flat screen TV, home theatre system, fancy kitchen appliances and holidays are non-essential items. Play bingo for these prizes and more and you wont have to pay the extra VAT. See I told you bingo beats VAT to a pulp!

Online Casinos Gambling – Defy Your Imagination
Posted in Online Gambling  Online Casinos  Casino Bonuses  Gambling  Casinos  Online Casinos Games  Casino Slots  Casinos Online  Roulette  Online Gambling Casino   |   Read All Comments 0 Comments
    Negative global economic trends have had absolutely no impact on online casinos gambling, in fact if anything, the global economy may be what drives more players to try their luck. Quite honestly we dont blame them, because some of the prizes which stand to be won and are won, simply defy the imagination. Interestingly, online poker popularity declined, but was still up 7.1% in 2010, over 2009. A couple of new marketplaces opened up including both France and Italy, and the uptake to provide online poker to these countries has been huge, although Italy still appears to need to iron out the wrinkles. In terms of online poker, it appears to have reached the war of attrition stage where huge online poker sites such as Full Tilt, Poker Stars, Unibet and others are effectively edging out smaller competition; this type of activity also affects growth figures. What really surprised was the fact that online bingo playing, (referring to the UK mostly) increased by a massive 28.4% and contributed £1.72 Billion in spend; while online casinos gambling still factors in the upward growth trend, the casino sector contribution is minimal compared to the online sports betting sector. This branch of the industry saw £7.78 billion go into the coffers of operators, which equates to an increase of 10.8%, and includes wagers taken for the 2010 FIFA World Cup. We saw a few surprises in 2010, and it was not good news for all online casinos gambling operators, with Dave Ulliots "Devilfish" poker brand falling prey to the attrition we mentioned; taking with it, his casino and bingo brand. Unfortunately his online bingo offering came on board too late to actually make a difference, and his product was also not White Listed. This was a really stupid gamble, because Dave Ulliot is famous in the UK, this was the perfect market for his brand; yet the business was licensed in Kahnawake, or somewhere equally ridiculous, so he could not advertise in the UK. Notable in online casinos gambling in the UK during 2010 was the creation of a new multi-millionaire with a slots PJP win. A game of which, is in the mutually exclusive domain of bingo online. This is the Clover Rollover slot and one lucky winner on Christmas Eve 2010 – reeled in the biggest prize this game has ever paid; a whopping £3.9 million. This is the stuff that dreams are made of! Clover Rollover is only one of the online casinos gambling games which continue to defy the imagination, and if we put this win into perspective for you. When the "Devilfish" brand was floated on the London AIM, it was Capitalised at approximately £3.6 million. When it was sold a couple of weeks ago to the Weather Lottery, it sold for abut £330 000! So this Clover Rollover winner could have bought Devilfish Casino, Poker and Bingo for a bargain price and still have had £3.6 million in change!

Online Card Games - Choose Your Poker and Assume the Position
Posted in Online Gambling  Online Casinos  Gambling  Casinos  Online Casinos Games  Casino Slots  Casinos Online  Roulette  Online Casinos Bonuses  Sports Betting   |   Read All Comments 0 Comments
    There are so many different online card games; hands up who remembers the first game, on a PC, this had to be solitaire?! Do you know how many different solitaire games you can play online – there is even Funny Egyptian Piramide Solitaire? Of course this game is only played by funny Egyptians! There is also blackjack, baccarat, pai gow, rummy, gin rummy, card toss, snap, bandit, Hi-lo, casino war, cinco, joker jackpot bingo, and the classic online poker. There are plenty of versions of poker too – even poker solitaire, but as poker is one of THE most popular online card games, lets talk a little about poker; in particular poker psychology. One of the most attractive things about playing online card games is that most of them incorporate an element of luck combined with skill. Perhaps the most skilful game of them all has been acknowledged as being poker. In this game mathematics is called for as is an understanding of odds, the game being played and something they call poker psychology. What is really surprising about the psychology of this game is that most players dont know what this means. A list of tells or a description of tilt is not poker psychology, neither is knowing about bluffs or knowing you should not play when hungry. Any psychology is deeper than this so why shouldnt poker psychology be? The poker player needs to learn about themselves, their opponent and the game in some depth and understand what it takes to be a winner. This is probably the only online card game which is a psychologically pure contest and remember it was played offline first. Mastery over the psychology of poker means breaking this down into separate entities; namely - intrapersonal and interpersonal - the latter means the players interaction with others (opponents), the former, with him or her self. Most poker psychology writers focus on the interpersonal, but this is actually secondary, it is always more important to "know thyself" first. Being of a personal nature this obviously encompasses certain skills required for playing; skills such as natural ability or instinct, goal setting, confidence and patience, and optimizing these skills. Maximize your intrapersonal skills and you maximize your winnings. The same the same applies to improving the poker game, the more the player understands about themselves, the more they understand about the way they play and reasons why they make certain decisions, therefore the more they learn about the game. But this is not about poker strategy, this is about knowledge and ability. It is for this reason that many poker players keep records of virtually every hand they play and they post mortem the reasons for the decisions they made after the playing session is over.

The Poker Casino – Live the Dream; Play Online With No Limitations
Posted in Online Gambling  Poker Rooms  Online Casinos  Gambling  Casinos  Online Casinos Games  Casino Slots  Casinos Online  Roulette  Online Casinos Bonuses  Play Bingo   |   Read All Comments 0 Comments
    The words "Poker Casino" are a little bit of a misnomer, but its really just about semantics and not much else. Poker is not in the strictest tradition of a casino game, although poker is played at many casinos both online and off. A site which provides poker games only is referred to as a Poker Room or site and casino poker is a poker based game which is played against the house. Examples would be video poker and Pai Gow poker. If poker is played against the house or casino it is not this game in its truest form. Google the words Poker Casino and you will be offered millions of search results, all of which may or may not be relevant to what you are searching for. But that having been said, let us assume you are looking for a place online where you can learn to play poker. Consider it done, you can even be taught by professionals who win millions of dollars annually playing poker both online and off; for example at Poker Stars or Full Tilt Poker. The best poker casinos always provide a poker school for their members, and it is not ever necessary to pay for any lessons in this game. Should you come across a poker school online which expects you to pay, look for a site that doesnt. There are so many free resources for so many different things online, that in a perfect world you would never have to pay to learn anything ever again. Poker happens to be just such a subject, although it will cost you money eventually when you start playing for money, because you win some and you lose some – all poker players do. It has been proven however, that it is possible to play online at a poker casino and start off with absolutely nothing - not a cent to your name. Chris "Jesus" Ferguson wanted to do this and he did. Even though he is a pro player, he wanted to prove that a player online could start with a zero balance and work their way up through freerolls, until they had thousands of dollars in their account. He did this, and it took him a year to earn $10 000 which he then donated to a childrens charity. Anette_15 maintains she started playing at age 15 and only in freerolls, she did so well that by the time she was able to claim to be a legitimately aged player, she had thousands of dollars in her bankroll. Chris Moneymaker started with a $39 bankroll and played his way through freerolls and online satellites until he found himself the first online poker player to win the WSOP final table. No matter what you call it, a Poker Casino or a Poker Room, if it is online, there are all kinds of possibilities and no limitations to what can be learned and achieved. This has been proven time and again! At one time, online poker players were believed to be inferior players, now they are living the dream.

The Casino No Deposit Bonus - When it Looks too Good to Be True, it Usually Is!
Posted in Online Gambling  Online Casinos  Casino Bonuses  Gambling  Casinos  Casinos Online  Roulette  Online Card Games   |   Read All Comments 0 Comments
    The casino no deposit bonus is basically meant to be a tantalizer, a taste, sample, a treat. When an online casino offers you a no deposit bonus which looks to good to be true, you can guarantee that it is. If this was not the case the huge brand casino names would use the casino no deposit bonus as a tantalizer too – they dont! At least for the most part they dont; they may be prepared to part with a fiver, or an amount which falls in with their marketing plan. For example the 770 brand uses a treat of $770 and the 888.com brand may use $888 or something in that range. These are very realistic casino no deposit bonuses and they make a good deal of sense, but then some sites take it to the extreme and offer $50 tied up in weird and wonderful requirements. Other casinos may offer free spins or for the player to play for an hour. They may even offer them $5000 to play for the hour with! If you read the small print regarding "play for an hour, get $5000 free". The new member will generally have to place a certain amount of bets, may only keep winnings of $20 more than the initial amount given to them and this is limited to $100. So this is a little bit of excessive marketing, but is sort of fair enough; it is just another way of skinning that "casino no deposit bonus" cat. At well trusted casinos with very respectable names, the player will be in safe hands accepting "tricky" bonuses, but at the very least the site should offer a way to opt-in or not. If the casino offers no choice, then just read the small print, nothing is ever free at any online casino and the player has to earn their bonus money. This is earned through loyalty in terms of wagering, playing and obviously making deposits. I have seen some casinos that will tie you into to a 100 x rollover requirement, so if you deposit $100, you are required to play through 100 times this amount ($10 000) before you have met their requirements; this is a lot of crap – excuse my French! Getting a good deal online, be it for a casino no deposit bonus, is possible and easy if you know what you are looking for; if you dont then use a good portal. These sites are directories which provide you with all kinds of useful information including bonus and no deposit bonus comparisons, wagering requirement comparisons, reviews, news, informative articles and whether an online casino has been naughty or not. The rogues are generally few and far between, but some casinos barely hinge on the borderline and you need to know all the facts. There is no plausible reason why any potential gambler should play without knowing all the facts.

Online Gambling Casinos Rules
Posted in Online Gambling  Online Casinos  Gambling  Casinos  Online Casinos Games  Casino Slots  Casinos Online  Roulette  Gambling Casinos Rules  Casino No Deposit Bonus  Poker  Poker Casino   |   Read All Comments 0 Comments
    In this world we live where everything is done online today including all our shopping, it seemed a natural progression for online gambling casinos to also become par for the course, and they have. Most people play games for entertainment and gambling online is no different, it is a darn site cheaper-than going out and paying for transport meals, drinks and whatever else you need when you go to a land casino. There are some dos and donts however and every potential online gambler has to beware of the pitfalls as well as the pleasures. For example gambling when drunk – have you ever done this, I have?! It is bad enough going to a bar or night club when you are drunk, you look in your wallet the next morning and the beer monkey has stolen all your money. Well, the fact that we can order from the off-sales and the fish and chippy online, means we can are also able to fortify ourselves with food and drink for online gambling, we do after all need our strength. When we gamble inebriated, exactly the same thing can happen, and if you do this online, you will go to your credit cards the next morning only to find that the beer monkey has stolen all your credit too – you are not even expected to wobble to the ATM to get cash when you play this way. Also never play roulette at a Mexican casino! I am not too sure if there are any online, but there are many in Mexico. If you drink the tequila and play the roulette, forget beer monkeys, you will be robbed by Mexican bandits, it is almost as bad as playing Russian Roulette. This version of the roulette wheel has the European "0" pocket, the American "00" pocket and never to be outdone by anyone else, there is a Mexican "000" pocket too – no you are not seeing triple because of those tequilas you recently imbibed! Do you have any idea what this does to the house edge? You actually dont want to know; in fact the odds would probably be better if you were to play Russian Roulette. It would only be someone either stupid or drunk who would ever play either of these games. Online gambling casinos expose players to all kinds of strange and unusual games they might not normally find in a land casino. Before you actually put in your money to play, you want to know what you are in for. The casino should offer any and all of the information you require and it is imperative to be sober to take in this kind of data. If a casino offers you a $1000 bonus with a 100 times wagering requirement, you might believe they are making you an offer you cant refuse. It is amazing how an inebriated mind can play tricks on the superior intelligence of human beings.

Online Blackjack - Microgaming; The Heinz 57 of 21
Posted in Online Gambling  Online Casinos  Blackjack  Gambling  Casinos  Online Casinos Games  Casino Slots  Casinos Online  Roulette  Online Gambling Casinos Rules   |   Read All Comments 0 Comments
    The number 21, this is the magical number which rules the game of online blackjack. There are various forms of blackjack found dominating in casinos around the world, and as an online casino is a world in its own, you will find every variety of blackjack. But how many varieties of this game can you play? Well, fortunately there are not 57 varieties of blackjack to choose from, but Microgaming tries hard and comes close with their huge selection of these games. At these casinos there are 43 different ways to play online blackjack! For example the Brits like their pontoon and they play blackjack too, but I like pontoon because it offers more than one way to win, and there something in me that just loves getting that five card trick. The Australians also like pontoon and it is played widely in Asia. So these players are catered for with the Microgaming version of Pontoon, but what about the other 42 versions? It is a relatively simple concept; they have taken Nevada or Las Vegas Strip Blackjack if you prefer, and they have tweaked the rules here and there. You cant do too much with the game or it loses its simplicity and this is the major appeal factor. What Microgaming has done is mixed up the number of packs of cards in the shoe, whether or not there is an insurance, surrender or double up factor. They have also taken online blackjack and given it a side bet which is a progressive jackpot prize; a percentage of the prize being paid out depending on how many aces the player is able to hang on to. There is double hands in the game, face up games where the two last cards can be swapped, games where the split makes a difference to the rules or a split is not allowed, there is also a "Gold" series of games which is a newer version, with really great features. Blackjack can be played according to your own strategy chart, which you complete and design, set your betting range and bugger off to go and watch the football while it plays away on its own. I cant see any fun in this, but it happens and this is how people play online blackjack sometimes. Online gambling has changed the face of all of the games, not only blackjack! In all honesty, I see online blackjack as a game that anyone can play, it requires very little skill and strategy. It is a simple game and keeping it simple for yourself is also key to the amount of pleasure you get from playing. If you use Microgaming casino, take care which version of the game you play and that you have read their rules, you dont want to be playing Blackjack Switch in your mind, when you are actually playing Blackjack Surrender on the machine.

Casinos Online - The Luck of the Gamble Will Always Attract "Chancers"
Posted in Online Gambling  Online Casinos  Gambling  Casinos  Online Blackjack   |   Read All Comments 0 Comments
    My ex used to call gamblers "chancers" and I can see why, they take a chance on their luck and hopefully win. People have been "chancers" since time immemorial; it is no mistake that the dice are called "Bones". Witch doctors, Shamans and Soothsayers from all cultures and creeds have used bones and stones to foretell what will be, and what after all is a gambling game? It is the guessing of the outcome of a game in the future and placing a wager on this outcome. Because gambling is intrinsic to our nature, it was only natural for it to progress into casinos online as soon PCs and the internet became a feasible technology for use by all. Casinos online now number in the thousands and billions of dollars exchange hands annually, not only at casinos, but in all the related subsidiary industries too. Chancers make money or lose, online casinos make money, software developers make money, design teams, copywriters (like me), affiliates, marketing companies, and massive, well-recognized brand names make money too. It is huge news currently for software companies to align themselves to well positioned brands in order to develop games on these themes. We see it with Deal or No Deal, Who Wants to be a Millionaire, Wheel of Fortune, and other TV game shows but this is even more sophisticated and pervasive than simply games shows today. Recognizable brands with broad fan bases in popular culture are also used; we see board games such as Monopoly and Cluedo. Super heroes are huge news with fans currently and Marvel Comic themed movies being all the rage, we find Superman, Batman, Spider man and every man imaginable now appearing in casinos online, in the slot machine and other instant win range of games. To take it a step even further, there is Jeff Waynes War of the Worlds and even the biggest movies of all time in Lord of the Rings from New Line Cinema and Microgaming. Net Entertainment has recently signed with Universal and they already have a game in development themed on a film – at this point we dont know what this is. But we have seen Forest Gump, Braveheart, Hellboy; gosh there are so many I can no longer think. This industry has attracted chancers of every possible kind, anyone and everyone who is able to make money from providing services to, align with or just playing games – is! Every person who has half a brain knows that when the going is good, the good get going and this industry is going like a bat out of hell still. If there is any possibility of the US market opening up in the future, the growth rate will skyrocket even more. If you can get a share of the billions and do it honestly – go for it while it lasts, right now we are all somewhat of chancers.

Online Casinos Bonuses - Read the Small Print if you Can Find It!
Posted in Online Gambling  Online Casinos  Casino Bonuses  Gambling  Casinos  Betting Tips   |   Read All Comments 0 Comments
    No matter what an online casino tells about their bonuses in the marketing hype, everything comes at a price and there is always small print to contend with. Just make sure you know what you are in for in terms of bonus conditions and you will see that while some of these offers are totally dismissive, others are not and do make some sense. When you take a look at Virgin Casino for example, this is a well known brand name, their bonus conditions are laid out up front, right on the same page as the bonuses; are clear and concise, and take up approximately 8 lines. You may claim a maximum bonus amount of 100% on deposits of £5 to £100 and play through is 25 x the deposit amount. Compare this transparency to Millionaire Casino for example who will give you up to $5000 in bonus funds in 100% deposit bonuses on the first three deposits. When I scrolled through the pages of terms and conditions, I could not find the play through requirements. These are also sometimes referred to as rollover or wagering requirements. I spent five minutes looking, you should not even spare them that, if you cant find bonus wagering requirements in a snap, the small print may be so small that not even you can find it. No wonder they call themselves "Millionaire Casino" they have made a million while we are still trying to seek out the play through details. While the aim of this exercise is neither to promote Virgin casino nor demote Millionaire Casino; I merely took a well known brand name and a not so well known brand name – being the first name I did not recognize, and used them as both as examples of online casino bonuses and how they can differ. Biggest is by no means best in this instance, chiefly because it is virtually impossible to find out what we are in for – guaranteed whatever the wagering requirement on this huge amount will be insanity. It is always my contention that players should accept the smallest bonus available and with the Virgin option, a deposit of a fiver will give you a fiver free. This is £10 to play with and the bonus is released once you have spent £5. But you still have to play through £10 x 25 to meet wagering requirements and this is £250! This is how all online casino bonuses work, some of the better casinos offer better wagering requirements on larger deposits and I have seen as little as 10times at some sites. But this is still a very large amount of money if the minimum deposit made to take advantage of a 10 x wagering requirement is £500.

Top Rated Online Casinos - Stick with the Brand Names You Know
Posted in Online Gambling  Online Casinos  Gambling  Casinos  Casinos Online  Betting   |   Read All Comments 0 Comments
    The very nature of gambling itself tells us that in order to feel secure and have a good time; it is good to go with a brand you can easily recognize, even if you dont know the actual product itself. In the UK this is a relatively easy matter as nearly all the top rated online casinos have come from well established betting or bingo brands in the UK. Today these are only a mouse-click away and as much trouble to play as getting out the old debit or credit card and getting comfy in your favourite armchair with your laptop and a tin of Boddingtons. In the US – the home of the brave and the land of the free, unfortunately these are freedoms which cannot be taken for granted. Top rated online casinos should offer services to most countries in the world that allow online gambling and the will say: players from this country cannot play for cash, or US players not allowed. As far as names go, to give you examples; these include but are not exclusive to: William Hill, Betfred, Ladbrokes, Littlewoods, Circus/Maxim, Gala Coral, Mecca or Rank, Virgin, and 32 Red. 32 Red is specifically an online brand as is Bet 365, but they are well trusted and offer some of the nicest promotional and bonus deals. Casinos in the Fortune Lounge Group and Palace Group networks are also pretty cool sites and can be rated amongst the top of a good lot. Any player can play any game when they play online; these casinos are not like land based casino floors where some games are kept exclusive for some players, such as Baccarat. Baccarat salons are typically kept apart and are not for the plebs to use, hence the reason we think; why this is the game James Bond 007, favours. All the big high rolling players in the past have played baccarat, but many of these billionaire gambling moguls are dying off and are not being replaced by younger versions of the same; Kerry Packer is an example, so in some ways the high stakes baccarat salon is also dying out. Online baccarat can be played for a penny a pop if this game is what turns you on. All games that are played online whether at top rated online casinos or not can be played for low to medium stakes, often high stakes games are catered for, but this is a very specific market place. So dont you worry, you take your tenner or your pound and go and enjoy a hundred spins on the roulette wheel with it. No-one knows or cares how much or how little you or anyone else spends at a site, the aim of the game is to have complete non-discriminatory fun!

Casino Slots - Let's Get Progressive and Play
Posted in Online Gambling  Online Casinos  Gambling  Casinos  Online Casinos Games  Progressive Slots  Casino Games  Casino Slots  Gambling Tips & Strategies   |   Read All Comments 0 Comments
    There are many different casino slots and these games are found in both land and online casinos. They are the games with the biggest range of choice of prizes as well as themes and coin ranges. The beauty about playing these games online is that the player also gets to choose their own coin range, whereas in land casinos this choice is generally very limited. For example a video casino slot game at an online casino with five reels and 20 pay lines, may offer a range of coins from 1p or 1c up to as much as £5 or $5, with as many as ten coins per line. You get to choose what you wager, and this is very progressive thinking because players who dont have a lot of money or dont want to risk a lot, are also able to play the same games as the high rollers. The other progressive thing about casino slots, in particular when they are online, is that hundreds of players may play the same game, even thousands if they like; you certainly dont have to wait for a seat to be vacant before you can play. Now the most fabulously progressive thing about these games is that they offer progressive jackpot prizes – known otherwise as a PJP. Generally speaking a PJP game is linked to a specific network or software developer. So twenty, thirty or even more sites may offer the PJP casino slots games that you enjoy playing the most. A good example of these games is Gold Rally from Playtech, which is a 3 reel video slot with 8 pay lines, the Clover Rollover is another PJP and this is a 5 reel, 5 pay line game and is found at Virtue Fusion sites. In the most part I have only seen the Clover Rollover at online bingo sites in the UK, but the prize is now up to more than £3.6 million, which makes it worthwhile seeking out! Progressive jackpot prize casino slots can be more expensive to play, but as you we can see with these two games, they are restricted in the low amount of pay lines. The maximum bet on Gold Rally is $16 and on Clover Rollover this is £5. Casino slots which are progressive often also offer lower payout percentages and this may drop from a 95% payout on a normal slot, to 90% with a PJP. This is understandable, the prize is generally pre-seeded and a game like Major Millions from Microgaming is pre-seeded with $1 million! The Clover rollover on the other hand is pre-seeded with £100 000. So there is quite an outlay in terms of the up-front prize money. This prize money may drop onto the reels one week and drop again the next week before it has even had time to grow.

Online Casinos Games - So Many Choices, Let's See What to Play
Posted in Online Gambling  Online Casinos  Gambling  Casinos  Online Casinos Games  Slots   |   Read All Comments 0 Comments
    Online casinos games, what can we say about these? Lets start by making a list shall we?! Right, just off the top of my head, when you play these games online you can play: Baccarat, blackjack, craps, gin rummy, rummy, casino war, roulette, three reel and five reel video slots, traditional slots, pub slots, scratch cards, pull tabs, poker, video poker, casino poker, keno, Asian games, bingo, brag, virtual dogs, virtual horses, bingo roulette, pinball roulette, hi-lo, arcade games and sklots which are a hybrid slot and skill game. There are probably tons more games I cannot think of right now, but by now you also get the picture. And of course there are also sports betting, proposition or novelty bets, financial spread betting and lottos. So there is a lot to keep you entertained and if you are playing an online casinos games and the site offers you in the region of 450 to choose from, we recon even the most severe ADD sufferer should be kept entertained for at least a short while. While not all casinos have so many different games on offer, most sites have at least 80. There are obviously some games which appeal to the majority of players, and these also happen to be the simplest games of all, as many people play to relax, and not to tax their brains. Keno is so simple it is like bingo where you get to choose the numbers you want to win. Scratchies are also incredibly simple to play and as they are instant wins, playing also means instant gratification. If you win you get paid, that is that! There are even dedicated sites which cater for scratch cards alone. Lotteries deserve a small mention of their own, as since many lottery sales have gone online, players from all over the world, can take part in lotteries they would normally not be able to play. Lottery sites are also dedicated sites and for example, someone in New Zealand is able to play the UK National Lottery, Irish Lottery or the Euromillions if they like. There are also two UK Bingo sites which offer free lottery lines to their players, one is Rollover Bingo, where every fiver you spend on bingo, earns you another free syndicated lottery line. The other site is Bet 365 Bingo and they call this "Dream Bingo", play these games for free syndicated Euromillions lines. Online casinos games are for every type of player, with every type of budget; with a game of roulette priced at a penny a pop, there is really no way to go wrong. Newbies can learn to play and you all can play for free; it truly doesnt get much better than that – does it?
