ONLINE SPORTSBOOK & CASINO LAUNCHES VEGAS-LIKE COMP SLOT ONLINE PROGRAM

SAN JOSE, Costa Rica (Dec. 16, 1999)—betmaker.com has unveiled its one-of-a-kind betfrequent loyalty program which awards customers with free prizes and merchandise for gambling on their site.

 

Similar to Las Vegas casino comp programs where gamblers are “rated” and can earn free lodging and meals, betmaker has teamed with other e-businesses such as SharperImage.com and ShopSports.com to provide some of the prizes.

 

Each time a bettor places a wager they earn a fixed amount of points that can later be exchanged for gift certificates at online stores, additional wagering opportunities or betmaker.com merchandise. Bettors can also earn enough points for a $50 gift certificate each time they refer a friend to betmaker.com.

 

According to betfrequent coordinator, Susan Mora, “there is no other sportsbook and casino on the net that allows you to earn points each time you make a wager. Each and every day the competition gets tougher and tougher. When we started out, there were only three other internet sportsbooks—now there are close to 600. We are constantly evolving and looking for innovative ways to attract new customers and better serve the ones we already have. This is our way of saying ‘thank you for choosing betmaker.’”

Support for introduction of `good casinos’

Good casinos _ legalised gambling establishments with strong regulations _ would do no harm, Chulalongkorn lecturer Pornsak Pongpaew believes.

 

He said the need for good casinos became apparent because casinos across the border were unregulated, and in effect served as money laundering places.

 

The lecturer also believes good casinos will help help block money flowing out of the country from Thai gamblers who visit cross-border gambling venues in the East, North, and South.

 

Mr Pornsak led a research team on “The problems of border casinos,” which found that more than 95% of gamblers visiting border casinos were Thai and included many prominent politicians.

 

It also showed that more than 55 per cent of respondents, while aware of the negative impact of gambling, supported the idea of legalised casinos.

 

His research showed money laundering happened in two ways at border casinos _ casino operators laundered their illicit money through the business, while gamblers changed their money into betting chips and then cashed them in again without gambling.

 

Smoking bans apply to Vic gaming areas from today

 

MELBOURNE, Sept 1 AAP – Almost all Victorian gaming venues will be completely smoke-free from today. Under laws introduced by state government, smoking will be banned in 99 per cent of Victorian gaming venues, including the main gaming floor of Crown Casino and the state’s 23 bingo centres. About 5,000 pubs will also have to provide smoke-free areas. Only pubs with just one bar area will be exempt from the requirement. Announcing the expansion of the bans last week, Health Minister John Thwaites said it followed the success of smoke-free dining, which had overwhelming community support. He said further smoking bans were possible, depending on the success of the new reforms. “The public are voting with their feet. They are saying they want a safe, smoke-free environment,” he said.

 

“Clearly, they know their customers better,” says Todd Jordan, an analyst at Dresdner Kleinwort Wasserstein Inc. and the Wall Street Journal’s No. 1 gaming stockpicker this year. “That’s translated into better same-store sales than the industry average,” Jordan …

Review of Internet Gambling Report IV on Situs Judi Online24Jam Terpercaya 2021

One of the most explosive, and controversial, of Internet services has been on-line gambling. Hundreds, if not thousands, of sites have gone up in the last few years catering to the home gambler, and few topics have engendered such controversy, or such vacillation and half-measures, on the part of world governments. The 4th edition of the Internet Gambling Report is a collection of essays edited and partially written by Anthony Cabot.

One topic that this reviewer knows even more thoroughly than gambling issues is Internet service architectures. The Internet information provided in Internet Gambling Report is pretty solid. Some of it isn’t correct on every detail, but even where it isn’t correct to the letter it’s unlikely to mislead the reader, so I give the book reasonably high marks in this respect. I’d like to have seen some more thorough explanations and details in places, but of folks who read the book, I’m probably in the minority on that.

One inevitable downside of a book like this concerns the currency of the gambling information. The state of government regulation of on-line gambling is highly volatile and unforgiving of conventional publication schedules. The information contained in the Internet Gambling Report looks to have been quite accurate and thorough at the time it was written, but just in the few months between final edit and the time I wrote this review, the status of the proposed Kyl bill, the regulatory climate in Australia, and potential regulation in Nevada have changed the playing field substantially. It would seem that the opportunity to promote a newsletter, or at least having a web site that listed updates, would be a no-brainer, but I found no evidence that Cabot and his associates provide such a service.

As with any book, the big question is, “Should I buy and read it?” For Internet Gambling Report, I find this to be a tough question to answer simply. Instead, I’ll list a couple of prospective readership groups and analyze how this book will or won’t help them.

Internet Gamblers: While there’s a lot of information here on Internet gambling, …

Qiu Qiu

Money Management For Greyhound Qiu Qiu Players

Heading for the dog track? Then ask yourself these two questions:

  1. How MUCH money do you have to invest/gamble?
  2. Is it possible, with the use/play/risk of this much money, to multiply it?

Whenever you set about to increase your holdings, some degree of risk is involved. In general it is axiomatic not put more at risk than we can “afford” to lose. The word afford, of course, is relative. The amount may be more flexible to a totally independent individual than to those of us who are responsible not only to ourselves, but to others. You must not risk so much that it will deprive or harm those you care for.

That, then, brings us to the limits of your “bankroll”; how much you want to put at risk. If you go to the track with, say, $100, you may well, in the course of the racing card, actually wager several times that much. That is, you’ll make a bet, win, bet again, win, bet, lose, bet, etc., eventually shoving as much as $300 or more through the windows. How much did you risk? Of course, you risked $300. If you had a profit of $100 at the end of the evening, you’d have had an R.O.I., (Return On Investment), of 33%. Some might think you DOUBLED your money – arriving with $100, and leaving with $200. Not so! You have to think in terms of how much you profit, (or lose), on the amount you put at risk. This might seem academic at first. It’s not! To come out ahead in this game you have to know the level of R.O.I. you can, or cannot, achieve on certain types of races with certain types of wagers. A confused gambler is a loser. You’ve gotta know where you are, where not to go, and how best to get to where you want to be!

How much money does it take to make a profit at the dog track? You are not going to learn that answer here. You will, I hope, learn HOW to work out the right answer. No …

Ligaz11 Review of Seven Card Stud for Advanced Players, 21st Century Edition

 

 

In my opinion, Seven Card Stud is the commonly played poker game that is the most difficult to master. The combination of the large number of cards that are revealed, the large number of betting rounds, and the multitude of distinct starting hands makes this game especially difficult. Despite this, Stud is probably the most commonly spread game in the world, familiar to both high stakes casino rooms and kitchen tables around the world.

 

The book starts with introductory remarks and then gets into the first section, play on 3rd street. The authors state that 3rd street play is especially important in Stud and they devote one fifth of the book to this very topic. A large variety of circumstances are covered here, including many topics that weren’t covered in previous editions. There are a lot of ideas discussed here, including many that I haven’t seen discussed in other places. This section has been greatly expanded in the 21st Century Edition from previous editions of this book.

 

Next the authors consider play on later streets. Play becomes a lot more automatic here than it is on third street, but there are a lot of exceptions. The authors cover these in part two. Part three covers some miscellaneous topics, including defending against the ante steal, playing pairs against possible draws, free cards, and other similar topics. Both of these sections are well considered and clearly written.

 

Parts four and five deal with playing in non-standard games, part four covering loose games, part five covering other situations, including spread limit and short handed games. The information on loose games is greatly expanded from earlier editions of the book and contains a lot of new information, although not too surprisingly, much of the ligaz11 strategy considerations are similar to those discussed in the chapters on loose games in Hold’em Poker for Advanced Players. I found the section on spread limit games to be a little brief for my tastes, although expanding on it sufficiently would have increased the length of the book significantly. This isn’t a complaint with …

Dueling Judi Bola Online Portals

It’s fairly well publicized that fierce competition exists between online casinos and their web sites. But a new battle is heating up the competition among the casino players, and the choice of software suppliers determines which side the players fall on. We’re talking about the rivalry between the progressive jackpots of Microgaming and CryptoLogic.

The online progressive game phenomenon began in April 1999 when Microgaming introduced CashSplash, the first progressive online slot machine. The $1 slot game was tied to multiple Microgaming licensees, providing a faster growing jackpot and a larger base from which to draw players.

The bid paid off and within a year, millions of dollars had been paid out to hundreds of players. A couple of years later, Microgaming introduced the JackpotMadness portal to facilitate marketing the suite of progressive games that had been introduced since the popularity of CashSplash became apparent.

Meanwhile, Microgaming’s challenger, CryptoLogic had quietly been rolling out its own collection of progressive online games. And not to be outdone, the JackpotMania portal site was launched, again to facilitate the marketing of progressive games.

The information provided at each site is laid out similarly, but the inherent qualities of Microgaming and CryptoLogic incur most players to side with one or the other, which is probably what has sparked the battle to attract players. After all, size matters when you’re talking about progressive jackpots.

One glaring difference between the offerings can be found in the number of pooled Judi Bola Online casinos that participate in each software supplier’s progressives. Seventy participating casino sites carry one or more of Microgaming’s progressive games. This creates a very large player base, which in turn creates very large jackpots in a short amount of time.

On the other side of the fence is CryptoLogic, which has 12 casinos pooling players and jackpots. One way that Crypto makes up for the difference is by offering jackpots with higher base amounts; two of them start at $100,000.

Both portal sites offer automatic e-mail notifications of jackpots over a specified amount, supposedly so that you will play after the jackpot has reached …

Bank on Pai Gow 918KISS แตกง่าย 2021Poker

Pai Gow Poker is one of the top ten best casino bets because of the low casino advantage. I suggest in my Casino Gambling Made Easier books and booklets that intelligent gambling means playing those games and strategies that have a casino advantage of less than 3%.

Basic rules follow and are offered for novice players seeking to add another casino game to their playbook.

Pai gow poker is an American derivative played with standard playing cards requiring that the player set two hands–a high and a second highest–trying to beat the banker’s two hands.

The cards in pai gow poker are ranked like standard poker hands; the exception being that one joker is found in the deck and can be played as an ace or the high card to finish a straight, flush, straight flush or royal flush. You must win both hands to win your bet and the house receives a commission on all winning hands. All players play against the banker, which could be the dealer, or a player putting up the required funds. Each player receives seven cards and must make two poker hands, the high hand made up of five cards and the low hand containing two cards. The highest five-card hand is five aces and the highest two-card hand is two aces based on poker rankings.

A Pai-Gow Poker table has six players’ seats and a dealer, similar to a blackjack table. The player’s high hand is displayed closest to the space in front of them, while the 2nd highest or low two-card hand is placed on top of the high hand towards the dealer. A chung or marker is set in front of the banker.

Rotation is counterclockwise, dealer shuffles and deals seven hands of seven cards face down, which equals 49 cards, therefore, 4 are left in the deck.

Receiver of the first hand is determined by a dice throw from a cup containing three dice. After all the players receive their seven cards face down, they must form two hands.

The most important rule to remember when playing is that the …

George’s Pkv Games Premiership Predictions

The Premiership moves on after the midweek matches in Europe. Only Chelsea and Spurs out the Premiership teams actually won. Liverpool drew and the others all lost.

Manchester City will have every hope of continuing their 100% record with a home Pkv Games game against West Ham, who have won at both Arsenal and Liverpool.

Manchester United face Southampton in another tricky away fixture. The Reds lost 2-1 to Swansea in their last fixture on the road. United will be without ex-Saint Luke Shaw after the young full back broke his leg in the game against PSV.

The standout fixture over the weekend is Chelsea v Arsenal with Chelsea enjoying a morale-boosting win at home while Arsenal lost dismally at the Maksimir Stadium in Zagreb.

Saturday, 19 September 2015

Chelsea 2 v Arsenal 1

Aston Villa 1 v West Brom 1

Bournemouth 2 v Sunderland 1

Newcastle 1 v Watford 0

Stoke 2 v Leicester 0

Swansea 2 v Everton 1

Man City 3 v West Ham 1

Tottenham 2 v Crystal Palace 1

Liverpool 2 v Norwich 1

Southampton 1 v Man Utd 1

Victor Ibarbo hopes he will be given the opportunity to show what he can do when Watford play Newcastle United this weekend. The 25-year-old Colombia international joined the Hornets on loan from Cagliari on transfer deadline day and was an unused substitute against Swansea City on Saturday. Ibarbo, who featured in three games for his country at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, said: “I’m always ready and hopefully soon I will play and show everybody what I can do. “I’m going to bring what my team-mates are already doing as I think they have started the season very well. I have a lot of pace and I think that is one of my main strengths as a player.” Watford are available at 8/1 with bet365 to beat Newcastle 1-0, with Ibarbo 3/1 to score at any time against Steve McClaren’s side.

Late Eagles touchdown is big score for books

A late touchdown pass by quarterback Donovan McNabb did not win the Super Bowl for the Philadelphia Eagles. It did produce a super Sunday for the sports books, however.

New England, which closed as a 7-point favorite over Philadelphia, led by 10 at the two-minute warning and was in position to cover the spread.

But a lot of money changed hands after McNabb’s 30-yard scoring throw to Greg Lewis with 1:48 remaining helped the Eagles get the back-door cover.

The Patriots held on to win 24-21, and the final score came in under the total of 47 1/2.

“Almost every book probably needed New England to win but not cover,” Las Vegas Hilton sports book director Jay Kornegay said. “The worst scenario would have been for the Patriots to cover and it go over the total.

“It was probably one of the bigger back-door touchdowns we’ve had in the Super Bowl in a long, long time. If we didn’t get that last touchdown, we probably would have broken even on the game.”

The Nevada Gaming Control Board will release the total amount wagered on the game late this week. The handle might not set a state record, but the books are expected to record a significant win.

A record $81.2 million was wagered on last year’s Super Bowl, with the state’s books winning a record $12.4 million.

“I would be surprised if the total handle throughout the state exceeded last year,” said Stardust sports book director Bob Scucci, who predicted two marquee teams would attract significant wagering.

“It came close to what we expected. I anticipated more because of the matchup, but we haven’t seen that.”

The NFL’s policy against Super Bowl parties forced Las Vegas hotels to move the traditional game-day gatherings from bigger ballrooms to books and other areas of the casinos. The weekend crowds at various locations around town appeared to be smaller than they were last year.

“That was probably the only thing that prevented it from being a record,” Kornegay said.

The most popular parlay bets were on the Patriots to cover and over the …

Crazy Weekend In Dominoqq Online Korea

 

 

“Seongnam are the second strongest team in the league but we are the strongest,” said Pohang Steelers boss Sergio Farias after his team defeated the K-League leaders 2-1 last Saturday. The Brazilian is exaggerating his team’s abilities but at the moment in Korea, just as the weather finally settles into seasonable temperatures, the football scene has gone haywire.

 

How else can you explain Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors’ 5-2 thrashing of Suwon Samsung Bluewings in the once-feared Big Bird Stadium? Earlier in the season, Suwon couldn’t stop winning and the Motors couldn’t start. Now the Jeonju club collected three successive wins; Suwon have lost five of their last seven.

 

For the Jeonju-based team, the fried egg on the Dominoqq Online bi-bim-bap was the five star showing in Suwon, after the meeting between the two earlier in the season had been a bad-tempered one.

 

In May, the Gyeonngi team went to Jeonju to win 2-1 with the last kick of the game. By that 94th minute, emotions were running high after Jeonbuk striker Cho Jae-jin scored and then, in the view of the Suwon fans, celebrated provocatively in front of the massed blue ranks. Cho told them he was only following what Suwon’s Seo Dong-hyun had done earlier in the game. Suwon fans told him that they would ‘see him at the Big Bird’.

 

Cho Jae-jin pumped up for Suwon

 

 

They came, they saw but Cho conquered. The much-maligned male model was roundly booed and jeered on his return to Gyeonggi but he quickly made the catcalls stick in blue craws. Cho put Jeonbuk ahead and although Suwon soon equalized, four goals from the men in green in ten second half minutes stunned the home fans and kept the visitors’ hopes of a place in the top six and entry to the championship play-off series alive. It was also the most goals that Suwon goalkeeper Lee Woon-jae has ever conceded in a single match.

 

“I expected it,” smiled Cho after the game, not referring to the 5-2 scoreline of course but the reception from …
