Guru Perjudian Berbicara Roulette

Saya belum pernah bermain rolet di kasino darat. Tapi saya sudah cukup sering bermain online. Kerugian saya sangat besar karena aliran merah yang luar biasa. Apakah merah warna yang disukai untuk beberapa alasan di kasino online?

Sang Guru menjawab:

Setiap hari saat saya berjalan melewati roulette marquis di kasino darat, saya melihat long run (apa yang mungkin Anda sebut aneh) merah atau hitam. Bukan hal yang aneh untuk melihat lari 8 hingga 12 berturut-turut dengan satu warna atau lainnya. Ini secara statistik tidak mungkin, tetapi roda roulette tidak pernah membaca buku matematika. Mengapa Anda tidak beralih dan bertaruh merah dan menonton orang kulit hitam berlari untuk mendapatkan perubahan?

Theo menulis:

Pertanyaan saya menyangkut fenomena tertentu yang saya saksikan di kasino tertentu di roda roulette Pantai Timur AS. Saya ingin tahu apa yang mungkin menyebabkan bola “melayang” di atas slot tertentu lama setelah kehilangan momentum rotasinya hingga menemukan slot yang memungkinkannya untuk turun. Pada titik ini tampaknya “meluncur” ke dalam slot dan bukannya jatuh seperti yang biasa dilihat orang di game ini. Saya juga ingin tahu apa yang mungkin menyebabkan bola, setelah melayang dengan cara tersebut, hanya “mengambang” di atas slot tanpa turun. Para bandar menggunakan istilah floater untuk menggambarkan situasinya. Saya perhatikan sekali setelah menyaksikan fenomena ini bahwa bola benar-benar tampak bergetar, dan itu jauh di bawah tingkat jahitan roda, mengambang di atas slot. Ada jawaban?

Sang Guru menjawab:

Harus saya akui, Anda telah menangkap saya dalam Hk hari ini hal ini. Saya belum pernah menyaksikan fenomena seperti itu. Jika saya melakukannya, saya akan sangat curiga dan tidak akan bermain di kasino itu lagi jika saya bisa membantu.

Saya telah menyaksikan apa yang disebut sebagai “pelampung” yang disebabkan oleh sifat-sifat gaya sentrifugal yang bekerja pada bola. Ini kadang-kadang menyebabkan bola “mengambang” tepat di atas deflektor. Dalam beberapa kasus yang sangat jarang, bahkan mungkin jatuh sesaat di antara deflektor dan slot. Tetapi meskipun demikian, bola selalu mengenai slot atau deflektor atau biasanya keduanya dan melompat-lompat. Saya akan mengatakan bahwa itu akan menjadi peristiwa yang sangat langka bagi sebuah bola untuk meluncur begitu saja ke dalam slot seperti yang Anda gambarkan. Saya kira itu bukan tidak mungkin, tetapi itu pasti tidak boleh terjadi secara teratur.

Anda tidak akan melawan kasino Link Alternatif Sbobet dengan taktik pesanan melalui pos

Apa pendapat Anda tentang beberapa sistem berbeda dalam mengalahkan kasino yang saya lihat dijual di internet? Clay R. aol.com

Legiun orang selamanya merancang sistem untuk mengalahkan rumah, tetapi jika sistem yang Anda lihat di internet ada gunanya, pemilik kasino akan melakukan apa yang diperlukan dalam satu menit di New York sehingga tidak ada domba yang bisa menyembelih tukang daging. Ini adalah gimme bahwa pemilik sendi perjudian tidak menghabiskan bazillions dolar untuk membangun mega-resor sehingga beberapa pemain sistem bisa masuk, keluar dari tempat itu, dan meminta kunci pintu depan.

Anda tidak spesifik sistem, Clay, tetapi saya telah melihat iklan yang Anda bicarakan. “Cara menang setiap kali di meja roulette. Kirim $10. P.O. Box—.” Sekarang, jika skema POBOX mereka sebagus itu, apakah Mr. POBOX akan menunggu uang $10 Anda yang sangat sedikit untuk ditunjukkan ketika yang bisa dia lakukan hanyalah masuk ke kasino dan menghancurkan tempat itu? Kedengarannya agak konyol, Clay?

Saya tidak tahu pemilik kasino hidup yang tidak akan mengirim limusin untuk pemain sistem dengan bankroll bersertifikat, dan memuatnya dengan semua perusahaan yang bisa dia kelola, dan masih menghasilkan banyak uang darinya. Pemilik kasino bahkan mungkin mempertimbangkan untuk mengirim POBOX ucapan terima kasih.

Mark yang terhormat,

Bisakah Anda menjelaskan perbedaan Satria4D antara dua “untuk” satu dan dua “untuk” satu? Apakah sama atau pembayarannya berbeda? Keduanya membuatku bingung. Jane B. Milwaukee, WI

Jangan khawatir, Jane, para pemain selalu membingungkan mereka. Dua “untuk” satu adalah ketika Anda bertaruh $1, Anda mendapatkan $2 kembali – taruhan dolar asli Anda ditambah keuntungan dolar. Ketika imbalannya adalah dua “ke” satu, Anda akan mendapatkan dolar Anda kembali ditambah dua dolar tambahan.

Mark yang terhormat,

Anda tidak akan percaya ini, tetapi merah muncul 15 kali berturut-turut di kasino Las Vegas bulan lalu, dan tidak ada yang menghasilkan uang, itu kecuali saya. Saya membeli seharga $20 dan pergi dengan $635 lebih kaya. Terima kasih atas sarannya untuk tidak pernah berhenti pada kemenangan beruntun, ditambah bermain di satu roda roulette nol. Dale G. Los Angeles, CA

Cheers, Dale, untuk mengidentifikasi pentingnya bermain di satu meja rolet nol dan lari Anda di kemegahan dan ketenaran roulette. Surat Anda menunjukkan mengapa saya terus-menerus berkhotbah: tidak pernah berhenti meraih kemenangan. Biarkan garis berhenti dari Anda. Tekan taruhan Anda dan bertaruh lebih banyak, bahkan jika Anda harus menginap semalaman. Ini mungkin tidak akan pernah terjadi lagi dalam hidup Anda. Begitu roda keberuntungan berderit- satu kalah, dua kalah, tiga kalah maksimal untuk kandang kasir. Berjalan pergi sebagai pemenang sangat menyenangkan. Anda dapat mengambil keuntungan Anda dan berlari, dan tidak peduli seberapa panas dealer roulette setelah kemenangan Anda, dia tidak dapat menyentuh kemenangan Anda begitu Anda keluar dari pintu depan.

Omong-omong, Dale, peluang munculnya warna merah 15 kali berturut-turut pada satu meja roulette Link Alternatif Sbobet nol adalah 50.000 banding satu.

Poker uang asli

Pembaca berbagi cerita horor pajak perjudian Sbobet

Beberapa tahun yang lalu kami diaudit untuk kerugian perjudian untuk ’93 dan ’94. Kami pergi tiga kali ke tingkat pemeriksaan (penyelia, semua orang) dan kalah setiap kali. Kami memiliki catatan luar biasa yang membuktikan bahwa kami benar-benar telah kehilangan lebih banyak daripada yang kami menangkan (melebihi dan di atas W2G dan jackpot yang lebih kecil). Kami berjudi cukup eksklusif di Caesars Tahoe dan memiliki cetakan komputer mereka dari total koin masuk (kerugian) dan koin keluar (menang). Bagaimanapun, $4000 kemudian dalam biaya pengacara dan akuntan, kami menang di banding.

Sekarang kami sedang diaudit untuk tahun ’96 dan ’97. Kami pergi ke pemeriksaan dengan catatan sempurna lagi dan lagi cetakan komputer dari Caesars. Kali ini mereka mengatakan bahwa meskipun kami kalah lebih banyak dari yang kami menangkan, kami harus mengklaim total “kemenangan” ($650.000) sebagai pendapatan. Itu setiap 25 dan $1 yang seharusnya kami menangkan. Kami dapat mengklaim kerugian total ($670.000) sebagai kerugian tetapi pendapatan kotor kami meningkat dari sekitar 80K menjadi $730.000. Cukup lompatan dalam braket pajak! Kami kehilangan semua pengecualian kami dan berbagai kredit dari jadwal A. Intinya, mereka mengatakan kami berutang $9,000 untuk tahun Poker uang asli 1996 saja meskipun kami benar-benar membuktikan bahwa kami kalah lebih dari yang kami menangkan. Tak perlu dikatakan lagi kami telah menyewa pengacara kami untuk $4000 lagi dan akan mengajukan banding.

Pernahkah Anda mendengar jika ini adalah strategi baru oleh IRS? Pada tahun ’93 & ’94, hasil cetakan komputer membantu kami membuktikan kasus kami. Sejauh ini di tahun ’96 dan ’97 itu sangat merugikan kami. Norma L

Pertama dan terpenting, Norma, saya berempati dengan Anda dan kisah Anda tentang masalah pajak. Ini adalah pertama kalinya saya mendengar masalah seperti itu. Saya ingin menerbitkan surat Anda untuk memberi tahu pembaca kolom ini tentang beberapa konsekuensi pajak yang mungkin mengintai mereka dan memungkinkan pembaca untuk bergabung dalam percakapan jika mereka juga mengalami kesulitan yang sama dengan IRS. Jadi, apa yang dimaksud IRS sebagai menang atau kalah game? Sebagian besar penjudi percaya, secara keliru saya dapat menambahkan, bahwa Anda menggabungkan kemenangan dan kerugian perjudian Anda bersama-sama untuk tahun itu, dan itu meminimalkan jumlah kemenangan yang dilaporkan. Tidak demikian, kata Paman Sam. Mereka mengharuskan Anda melaporkan SEMUA kemenangan Anda sebagai pendapatan. Selain itu, Anda secara teknis tidak dapat mengimbangi kerugian Anda dengan kemenangan Anda. Anda harus melaporkan jumlah penuh kemenangan Anda pada baris 21 dan mengklaim kerugian Anda sebagai pengurangan terperinci pada Jadwal A. Selain itu, Anda tidak dapat mengurangi lebih dari kemenangan yang Anda laporkan. Di sinilah saya agak bingung dengan surat Anda, karena pendapatan $650.000 tidak dapat diimbangi dengan kerugian $670.000. Hanya $650.000 yang dapat digunakan. Anda $20,000 melebihi batas yang dapat dikurangkan.

Sejalan dengan itu, jika perjudian Sbobet menang dan kalah diklaim, IRS akan meminta kepatuhan pada Prosedur Pendapatan 77-29 dan “pengurangan lain-lain” Publikasi IRS 529, yang mencakup bagian tentang membuktikan kerugian.

Protes Anda tampaknya merupakan definisi “tepat” dari kemenangan perjudian dan apakah Anda telah mematuhi Prosedur Pendapatan 77-29. Apakah IRS menyiratkan bahwa setiap kali Anda mendapatkan dua pasang di mesin video poker, Anda harus menyatakan itu sebagai kemenangan? Atau, bagaimana dengan sepasang jack ketika uang awal Anda dikembalikan? Konyol kedengarannya, apakah itu kemenangan yang dapat direkam? Jika demikian, mintalah pengacara pajak Anda memeriksa Szkirczak v. Commissioner. Di sinilah Pengadilan Pajak mencatat bahwa tidak realistis untuk mencatat setiap lemparan dadu, tarikan pegangan, dan putaran pada roda roulette. Ini mungkin bukan solusi cetak biru, tapi bisa membantu.

Namun demikian, Prosedur Pendapatan 77-29 memang mengharuskan pembayar pajak memelihara, secara teratur, buku harian yang akurat atau catatan serupa yang mendukung bukti yang tepat dari kedua kemenangan dan kerugian. Buku harian Anda harus menyertakan jenis aktivitas perjudian, lokasi, dan pernyataan jumlah menang dan kalah. Selain itu, dengan permainan mesin slot, IRS memerlukan tanggal, waktu, dan nomor mesin slot. Yang mengarah ke pertanyaan ini. Apakah menjadi terlalu patuh saat menggunakan cetakan komputer dari kasino mungkin menghukum Anda? Pada nilai nominal, Anda akan berpikir itu masih akan membantu karena jumlah yang Anda nyatakan Anda bersepeda melalui mesin harus menyertakan banyak W2G (jackpot lebih dari $ 1.200). Itu dibiarkan, tanpa pengurangan kerugian perjudian, akan menempatkan Anda di braket pajak yang jauh lebih tinggi.

Egads, semua pertanyaan pajak teknis ini mulai melampaui skala gaji saya. Saya akan menyerah dan akan selalu merekomendasikan bantuan pajak yang kompeten. Ketika diselesaikan, Norma telah berjanji untuk terus mengikuti kami, $4,000 kemudian, dari putusan bandingnya.

Aloisi dan Elrich bergabung dalam pesta, tetapi Milicevic menyebabkan keributan di Bandar Togel Hongkong

Ini mungkin pujian untuk A-League bahwa ketika, selama beberapa minggu terakhir, berita tentang kedatangan pemain besar Socceroos John Aloisi dan Ahmad Elrich disaring, ada beberapa yang terlihat mengangkat bahu.

Itu bukan dari ‘siapa yang peduli?’ variasi karena banyak orang melakukannya, terutama di rumah baru Aloisi di Central Coast of New South Wales di mana Mariners yang memimpin liga saat ini tampaknya tidak dapat melakukan kesalahan meskipun banyak rintangan.

Dan tentu saja itu sama sekali bukan reaksi terhadap dampak yang dirasakan pasangan ini pada kompetisi yang baru berusia dua tahun setelah waktu mereka masing-masing di sepak bola domestik Eropa.

Bagaimanapun, Elrich mencetak tendangan jarak jauh yang luar biasa pada debut penuhnya untuk Wellington Phoenix melawan Mariners selama akhir pekan.

Tanggapan yang tidak antusias lebih mungkin disebabkan oleh penurunan kepekaan Australia baru-baru ini terhadap tongkat-tongkat Socceroos terbaru ini dan pindah kembali ke negara yang beruntung.

Datang di belakang penandatanganan pra-musim mantan kapten Craig Moore, Tony Popovic, Danny Tiatto, Paul Agostino, Hayden Foxe dan Ljubo Milicevic, Aloisi dan Elrich dalam banyak hal hanyalah dua nama lainnya.

Nama-nama besar, tentu saja – terutama Aloisi yang Togel hk nasib baiknya dalam mencetak gol penalti yang mengirim Socceroos ke Piala Dunia 2006 dengan biaya Uruguay telah membakar julukannya ke dalam ingatan setiap gila olahraga Australia.

Tapi hanya pembenaran lebih lanjut dari arah sepak bola Australia di bawah naungan FFA dan A-League.

Dapat diperdebatkan apakah rasa puas diri yang mendasari tentang masa depan permainan harus dibiarkan merayap kembali ke dalam jiwa negara.

Dalam semangat langkah-langkah baru-baru ini, fakta-fakta dapat dengan mudah dilupakan tetapi harus dengan cepat memenuhi syarat.

Elrich adalah yang kesembilan dan Aloisi anggota ke-10 dari skuad Piala Konfederasi 2005 Australia untuk mencapai kesepakatan dengan klub A-League dengan mantan pelatih tim nasional Frank Farina juga menemukan rumah di Queensland Roar.

Ketika liga Aussie dimulai akhir tahun yang sama, tidak satu pun dari kelompok penggemar, jurnalis, atau penggemar sepak bola yang tertindas di negara itu akan meramalkan bahwa dalam beberapa musim hampir setengah dari skuad pilihan pertama negara akan, jika Anda suka, bekerja dari rumah.

Elrich, meskipun baru berusia 26 tahun, mempersingkat kontrak tiga tahunnya di Bandar Togel Hongkong di Inggris dengan Fulham untuk menandatangani kontrak jangka panjang dengan Wellington setelah gagal dalam urutan kekuasaan di Craven Cottage.

Sementara untuk Aloisi yang berusia 31 tahun, satu-satunya orang Australia dalam sejarah yang berkompetisi di Liga Premier Inggris, Serie A di Italia dan La Liga Spanyol, pemulangannya juga merupakan langkah permanen.

“Saya telah menyatakan niat saya dengan jelas bahwa saya ingin kembali ke Australia dan berkontribusi pada A-League dan saya senang bisa menjadi bagian dari liga dan berharap bisa turun ke lapangan,” katanya di akun resminya. kedatangan.

“Sejak A-League dimulai, ini adalah pilihan yang menarik untuk dimainkan dan saya merasa sekarang adalah waktu yang tepat untuk kembali karena saya masih berniat untuk bermain selama beberapa tahun.”

Sayangnya sentimen tersebut tampaknya tidak dimiliki oleh Milicevic dari Melbourne dengan peluangnya untuk bertahan di klub kota kelahirannya semakin berkurang dari hari ke hari.

Seminggu yang lalu, dia dan Archie Thompson diskors tanpa batas waktu karena melewatkan sarapan tim, tetapi sementara Thompson diberi kesempatan untuk memimpin kelompok kepemimpinan klub dan meminta maaf, Milicevic tidak.

Bek tengah berusia 26 tahun yang mengesankan itu dikeluarkan dari skuad Victory untuk bertemu Perth Glory selama akhir pekan dengan semua indikasi dia akan kembali ke klub Eropa di Tahun Baru.

New Patch for Bitcoin Dice Call of Duty: Ghosts – Single Player 1080p on PS4

The patch makes the campaign output at a native 1080p resolution. Without it, the campaign outputs at 720p.

Digital Foundry’s tests with a retail copy of the PS4 version of Infinity Ward’s shooter turned up surprising results: the multiplayer runs natively at 1080p resolution – but the single-player runs natively at 720p. This clearly contradicts messaging from both Infinity Ward, Activision and Sony about the resolution of the game, which on Xbox One runs natively at 720p across all modes.

Playboy Enters the Situs Slot Deposit Pulsa Tanpa Potongan Casino Business – Again

“The Playboy brand has always been associated with a glamorous and luxurious lifestyle.”

Adult entertainment giant Playboy is getting back into the casino business after two decades on the sidelines. That’s right. Hef and the Bunnies have launched their own online casino operation at PlayboyCasino.com.

Casinos aren’t a new venture for Playboy. The company ran several casinos in the 1960s, ’70s, and ’80s as part of the chain of international Playboy clubs. The London casino, which opened in 1966, was especially popular with the jet set crowd and OPEC oil merchants.

The London casino’s biggest competitor was Ladbrokes, an established U.K. gaming house that had dominated the scene until Playboy’s arrival. After a bitter battle between the two companies that saw Ladbrokes report irregularities at the Playboy club to the British gaming commission, the Playboy casino in London shut down in 1981. Most of the other Playboy clubs followed suit shortly after.

Playboy stayed out of the casino business for the next 20 years and concentrated on building its publishing empire. But gambling and Playboy seemed to be synonymous, so the company tested the waters once again in 1999 with a brick-and-mortar casino venture in Greece. That went well, and Playboy decided to throw its hand into the online betting ring earlier this year.

The online casino shouldn’t come as a Situs Slot Deposit Pulsa Tanpa Potongan surprise to anyone. The Playboy.com site has been going strong for several years, and two new sites, PlayboySportsBook.com and PlayboyRacingUSA.com, were launched earlier this year in an attempt to capitalize on the exploding online wagering industry.

But there’s more to this story than just a new casino launch. Guess who’s providing the software for the casino? That’s right, Ladbrokes. Playboy has partnered with its old nemesis to power the casino. Ladbrokes also provided software for the Playboy sportsbook that launched this past May.

According to a report in the London Times newspaper, the two companies had originally planned to launch a brick-and-mortar casino venture in London. But it appears that that project has been put on the back burner while they focus on the new launch.

Ladbrokes will be handling the casino operations and Playboy will do what it does best – marketing good times and attractive women. And the company is hoping that its long-standing history in the entertainment industry will attract bettors.

“The Playboy brand has always been associated with a glamorous and luxurious lifestyle, and our past casino business still resonates with our customers,” said Larry Lux, president of Playboy.com. “With the strength of our brand comes the customer reach, international renown and credibility that will enable us to make a significant impact in the online wagering space.”

And if Playboy is lucky, the casino may also act as a lifesaver. The company’s online operations have been losing money lately and PlayboyCasino.com may be just what the company needs to put it in the black once again.

The casino itself traffics heavily on the bunny logo, but it also offers a good selection of high-quality Flash and download games. The best feature of the site has to be the Playboy Bunny slots, which feature magazine icon Little Annie Fanny. My only question is, Where do I sign up?

Casino Malaysia

Status of Casino Malaysia Gambling Laws in the U.S.

The following are American jurisdictions having recent activity concerning legal gambling.

* – States and territories with gaming devices are marked with an asterisk: *

! – States with at least one casino (defined as having both banking card games and slot-like machines) are marked with an exclamation point: !

ARKANSAS – A bill to allow Internet bets on races has cleared a Senate committee. A proposal to amend the state constitution to allow a State Lottery was introduced in Jan. 2001. On Nov. 7, 2000, voters defeated, 65% to 35%, an initiative for widespread casinos, charity raffles and bingo and a State Lottery. Similar competing constitutional amendments had been tried in 1990, 1994, 1996 and 1999. Some gathered enough signatures, but the State Supreme Court found all but one other initiative misleading. That one lost 62% to 31% in Nov. 1999, due to the state’s active religious organizations and opposition from Mississippi’s casinos.

!* CALIFORNIA – In Aug. 1999, the State Supreme Court, quoting my 1986 book, Gambling and the Law, ruled Prop. 5 violated the state constitution’s ban on Nevada- and New Jersey-style casinos. The governor, legislature and tribes put another proposal together, Prop. 1A, approved overwhelmingly by the voters on March 7, 2000. Tribes now have a monopoly on full casinos written into the constitution. (An initiative to bring in commercial casinos is gathering signatures, but will fail at the polls.) The accompanying compact, approved by the federal government in May 2000 allows each tribe to have two casinos and up to 2,000 slot machines, subject to an incomprehensible formula capping the state total at either 43,000 or 113,000. Amazingly, Gov. Gray Davis failed to send a representative when tribes allocated slot machines to themselves, so the state did not know which tribes had slot machines, let alone how many there were. Pres. Clinton signed a bill in Dec. 2000 with the “Miller amendment,” a misleadingly labeled “Technical Correction,” which allows the landless Lytton Band of Pomo Indians to turn the San Pablo card club into an urban casino near San Francisco. Card clubs, race tracks and charity bingo parlors, afraid of tribes opening more casinos in urban areas, filed a lawsuit, which will probably be dismissed for failing to join indispensable parties – the tribes, which cannot be sued without their consent. Approximately 45 casinos now take in more than $2 billion a year; they can renegotiate for more slots in two years and can demand Internet lotteries now. California will soon be second only to Nevada in casino revenue. Attendance at race tracks is falling; Golden Gate Fields dropped 40% in ten years. Casino Malaysia Legislation created a gaming control commission in 1997, but Gov. Davis took three years to make his appointments. In 2001, Gov. Davis signed a bill to let residents make bets and tracks take bets on horse races by phone and Internet.

!* COLORADO – The 43 $5-maximum bet casinos with blackjack, poker and slot machines in Central City, Black Hawk and Cripple Creek brought in $631.8 million in 2000, and there were two more on Indian reservations. Widespread gray market video gaming devices pay off, when police aren’t around. The casinos came in through a constitutional amendment in 1990, but voters overwhelmingly rejected adding new towns and slot machines in airports in 1992, 1994 and 1996. Gov. Romer vetoed legislation to add gaming machines to dog and horse tracks in 1997.

Togel Hongkong

The Latest Online Togel Hongkong Gambling News Headlines

Here are a few items that made the news over the past week.

From the ‘watch where you bet’ files: A U.S. teenager has agreed to return some of the $900,000 he allegedly made running an online sports betting scam.

Federal securities regulators in the States believe the 17-year-old bilked investors of more than $1 million through his Invest Better 2001 web site and bulletin board.

The teen promised risk-free investments for people who gave him their savings, and guaranteed returns of 125 percent to 2,500 percent. This money was then bet on sporting events through a Costa Rican sports betting site.

Down in the South Pacific, Vanuatu Internet Data Centre has announced that it will be launching a Sammy Davis Jr.-branded online casino.

Davis, who was a member of the legendary Rat Pack, died in 1990 but his wife signed a licensing agreement with marketers The LaRoda Group and Gaming & Entertainment Technology Inc. that allows them to use his likeness for the site.

The casino is expected to open in March. U.S. residents will not be able to make real-money bets, but will be able to collect points redeemable for Sammy Davis Jr. memorabilia.

The big news of the past week was William Hill’s decision to block U.S. customers from making bets on its sportsbook after January 31.

The company has said that it will no longer be taking sports bets from America because of the 1961 Wire Act’s ban on placing these types of wagers over telephone lines.

U.S. players will be able to withdraw money from their Togel Hongkong accounts after January 31 but will not be able to place bets or deposit money. They will, however, still be able to make bets at the William Hill online casino. Bettors in other parts of the world remain unaffected.

Is Your Box Big Enough?

Casino TechWe did an article on what it takes to run online casino software about a year and a half ago. But that’s the same as forever when it comes to life on the web, so we’ll take another look at the hardware and software demands of today’s multimedia games.

I’m fortunate in that I get to play casino games both as part of my job and as recreation. It just so happens that my home computer is rather different than my work machine, and this affords a great opportunity to compare the two in terms of how they perform.

For the technologically inclined, let’s look at the specs on the two different computers:

Box A – the home computer: A Celeron 400-based PC with 64 Meg of RAM, a 4 Gig hard drive and an obsolete graphics card. I bought it a little over 3 years ago. A system like this would go for about 200 bucks these days. Look in your community newspaper for someone trying to dump one if you’re interested.

Box B – the office computer: A comparatively new Pentium III 933 with 512 Meg of RAM, over 40 Gig of hard drive and a reasonable –though generic– graphics subsystem. This system is well under the $1000 mark, and is probably closer to $750.

Back in 1999, Box A was more than enough to drive the casino software of the day. In fact, it smoked! Chuck used to ask me how this or that game played for me at home ’cause his office computer kept choking. I loved it!

But that was then and this is now. These days, the high-end Internet gambling software is being defined by games with a 3D look-and-feel, games using avatars and extensive sound libraries. These games are resource hogs in no uncertain terms and they’re starting to bring Box A to its knees.

Before anyone gets too excited, though, it’s worth noting that most games play fine on Box A. It’s only the latest and greatest software versions that give it trouble. I know I’m stating the obvious, but this will get worse with time.

Box B on the other hand has proven more than enough to handle the current generation of casino games. In fact, it’s probably overkill. No casino game I’ve played has given it a single problem. I think we can draw a few conclusions from that experience:

  • The casinos are fond of claiming that you can run their games on a mouse-powered shoebox with no more memory than your car alarm beeper. Don’t believe it! A decent computer — Box B would be at the higher end of that group — makes a real difference when you play the latest games.

 

  • If you don’t care about the latest high-end games, don’t sweat it. The majority of software providers are not in the business of selling computers so they’ll be reluctant to push the technology envelope too far. They want as many players as possible playing their games and that will mean they’ll target average (i.e. Box A-level) computers.

 

  • Chasing technology is a loosing game, and today’s killer computer is tomorrow’s boat anchor. Sad, but true. The thing to do is decide what you want to do, and that will determine where on the technology curve your computer needs lie.

 

For what it’s worth peripherals like your monitor, CD drive, mouse, and keyboard are more a matter of personal taste than specific requirement. Anything available today will do the job, so buy what suits you and what you can afford.

Meet Tony: The World’s Togel Hongkong Biggest Ever Online Winner

On May 30th, 2002 Tony P. made online gambling history when he won almost $1,600,000 at Captain Cooks Casino (www.captaincookscasino.com), a member casino of the Jackpot Madness family of Microgaming-powered casinos. As the very first Major Millionaire, Tony and his wife will be treated to an all-expense paid trip to Monte Carlo where they will begin their new lives as millionaires in style!

“It just couldn’t have happened to a nicer guy!” enthused Tony’s friends and family upon learning that he had won an unprecedented $1,594,649.21 cash on the new Major Millions online progressive slot.

I recently had the genuine pleasure of speaking to Jackpot Madness’s biggest celebrity. After experiencing Tony’s modest, unselfish nature, I must admit, I agree: he is a one in a million Millionaire!

A busy sales and marketing professional for a small company, I caught Tony between meetings on his car cell phone as he drove through the streets of his hometown. I was curious to find out what kind of luxury car and other goodies he had purchased following his amazing windfall. His surprise response:

“I just bought a 1999 Ford Taurus, so what do I need with a new car? Family comes first. We’ve been very practical when deciding what to do with the money and first and foremost helped family who were burdened financially. Helping those in need is much more important to my wife and I than a new car, although I will NEVER be in debt again. This jackpot was a real godsend, although I am no saint. We sent our three children (ages 23, 21 and 20) to a private high school and now college, and now we are virtually debt free! It’s a dream, as although I work very hard, I thought I’d die in debt. We sat down and went over a list of what we wanted to do with the money, and the first 4 items on the list were to help family members who really need. We are a really tight family!”

But aren’t you buying ANYTHING for yourselves?

“Right now it’s still so new! Our one extravagance has been to buy a new, much-needed computer. The wonderful folks at Jackpot Madness are sending us on a luxury trip to Monte Carlo, and we bought new wardrobes for the trip. My wife bought more clothes for this trip than she has in the last 10 years! I am also purchasing a really good digital camera so I can take beautiful pictures to share with everyone. Can’t wait to go to Monte Carlo where I can rub shoulders with the elite…I didn’t even have a passport when I won. Monte Carlo is NOT where the Tonies of the world get to go…we are thrilled!”

Even outside of his family circle, Tony plans on extending his goodwill to helping as many people as he can.

“There are some things that I have in mind that are Togel Hongkong private, but they mainly have to do with helping people who can’t afford to pay for their children’s education. That’s a focus that’s well worth it! I really want to offset some of their problems. We always help others when possible and everyone in this town knows it. I am not a Santa Claus, as I have to pay off $700,000 in taxes on my win! Some people would have gotten creative, but I figure – I’m a proud American, I’ll pay my taxes. People who know me said, ‘The biggest problem you are going to have is not giving it all away!’

I want to continue working – I love my job, as it is a real challenge. I have committed to five more years and then I’ll have the luxury of choosing a low-paying job doing something just because it is interesting. We are here just a short time, so let’s make the biggest impact we can! Right now I am smiling from ear-to-ear, although I feel guilty that I can’t help out everyone who needs it.”

As a child, his small-town, family-oriented environment strongly influenced Tony’s vision of what he would be as an adult.

“I wanted to be a high-school sports coach. The sport I excelled in was wrestling, and my coach was a tough hard-ass, but I admired and learned a lot from him. That goal wasn’t feasible, as I knew I had to make some money so I could raise a family. I worked in the family business for 20 years, and we lost it in 1998, and now I am in a completely different field. My dad always told me that integrity is the most important quality you can have. Twenty-nine years ago, right before I married my wife I told her, ‘When I die, I want my tombstone to say: He was a pretty good guy”.

Well Tony, you can rest assured that you have met and surpassed that goal! Not surprisingly, Tony’s all-time heroes include people who made major impacts on improving the lives of others.

“JFK, RFK, Margaret Thatcher, Martin Luther King…I have always admired leaders who can motivate others to great things.”

Consistent in all realms, his choice of favorite song reflects his personal values.

“My all time favorite song is ‘Father and Son’ by Cat Stevens. That song just tells my story. I woke up one day and realized that my dad is smarter than me!”

With thousands of people vicariously enjoying his win, I wondered if Tony has any special messages for his online gaming fans.

“View online gambling as a form of entertainment. Play what you can afford, but if you want to win you have to play! The night I hit the jackpot I had only played about $63, but I know when to stop!

Blackjack @ Lasseters

Question:

 

Lasseters, an Australian online casino (part of a land-based operation) has a special rule regarding dealer naturals, and I’d like to know what its effect is on the game odds.

 

If you double down or split+doubledown against a dealer [10] or [A] at Lasseters you will lose ALL your bets if the dealer flips over a natural at the end of the round. Lasseters doesn’t check under the [10] or [A] before player decisions, and so only offers insurance when an [A] is showing, and insurance is a fool’s bet anyway.

 

Lasseters claims they play by standard rules. What do you think? -BW

 

Answer:

 

What you describe is sometimes called the “European no hole card” rule. You’ll find it at some online casinos, including those powered by IDN Slot Microgaming software, and at some land-based casinos. Casinos in Las Vegas and Atlantic City generally don’t use this rule; you lose only your original bet against a dealer blackjack.

 

So what is the effect of the European no hole card rule on the odds? The late Ken Uston, in his blackjack classic “Million Dollar Blackjack,” says this rule increases the house edge by about 0.13%.

 

Now let’s take a closer look at Lasseters’ blackjack. Every card dealt is randomly selected from a new full 52-card deck. The chance of any particular card being dealt is always 1 in 52. This is essentially an “infinite” deck. [Thanks to Bill K. for pointing this out.] The dealer stands on soft 17, and resplitting is allowed (except for aces).

 

Calculating the return for Lasseters’ blackjack is easy — it’s posted right on their site. The long-term average player return is 97.64%, as approved by the Northern Territory Racing and Gaming Authority in Australia.
