    Using deception in poker

     

    If you have ever played poker before you know that you can obviously see all the players around you since you play in a circle (unless you’re playing online poker). You just figured out the most important part of poker. You may be thinking that that’s impossible. You probably think that the most important part is the cards; what cards you get how to use them, ECT... These are very important, you are correct, but it all starts with your ability to use your body language to your advantage. The cards are going to be relatively the same for all the players. Luck usually doesn’t factor in well in poker since everyone has the same chance to get the same cards. In case luck begins to play a large role in your game then what can you does? A player always has 4 basic choices; you can check, bet or call, raise, or fold. If you are not getting good cards you can always fold right? This is not always a good idea. You may be leaving large amounts of money on the table in the long run after a few initial folds. Sure you seemingly get away with losing less but you give up the chance to even try. Bluffing is the art of misguidance. You want them to think you have a bad hand one second and the next a great hand with all the best cards that are sure to win you the pot. How do you accomplish such a thing? Simply with your body language this can be done. If you have good cards act happy. You may not want them to know that you have good cards but it’s a way to change there thinking; now every time you act "happy" they will think you have good cards and may fold. If you have bad cards and you act happy they might fold because now they are afraid. What you want to do is create a complicated pattern of sad, happy, indifferent, ecstatic, angry, ECT. Actions for certain hands. You want to throw them off but try and lure them into a safe zone where they think they understand your bluffing pattern and then hit them with the reality. As long as they are trying to keep up with whatever pattern you have, you will have them all under your control. In one game of poker tournament I was playing in I decided to create very complex poker faces. They where not good they where not bad. I scrunched my face, grabbed my lip and scratched my leg; I did the craziest thing that nobody understood. They had no idea what my faces meant so they assumed that when I didn’t raise that my cards where not good and they would raise and raise. When it came time to show, guess who took home the pot. The moral of this little story is that you have to be creative. This is step two of poker (after learning the basics and learning them by heart), body language is very important. If you are known as a newbie and you come in they will expect you to show your cards loud and clear through your body language. You can mislead and kill your competition with a good poker face.

         
    Using plastic at casinos

     

    I have never thought it a good to use plastic to shop online or make money transfers. Call me old fashioned, but I still prefer to pay by cash. And believe me, I take it very seriously when the Federal Trade Commission tells me that identity theft is one of the fastest growing crimes in the US. I shred my mail, delete mail pertaining to my bank accounts and never write down confidential information like PIN codes. I'm ready to take the war to the enemy. This stance took a pleasant beating when I was surfing the internet the other day. While I am curious about online casinos, by habit, I have never played at any of them. This is not because I believe gambling to be evil; just my paranoia about online fund transfers. A general Google search the other day threw up a few site listings. Out of curiosity I went on to check out what these sites were about. By the time I was through with the payments sections of a couple of them, I realized the big bad world on the Internet was not so bad, after all. Technological advancements have ensured online transactions today are secure and iron-clad. Hackers belong in history, now, right up there with the bogey-man and all your old wives tales. Imagine my surprise when I found that in addition to having over a 100 games to choose from at the various sites, I had an equally astounding number of choices when it came to making online transactions. Online transactions at these sites are as safe as the gold in Fort Knox, thanks to the latest in encryption technology. Most sites accept orders from browsers that communicate using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL), ensuring your private information remains just that - strictly private. The Security and Privacy policy link on the sites gives you comprehensive information on how your security is safeguarded. To make deposits at the casinos, you can use you credit/debit cards, bank draft/personal checks, wire transfer or a number of alternative payment methods. These methods include, Neteller, Central Coin Banking, Eco Card, FirePay(Surefire), MoneyBookers, Ewallet Xpress/900Pay, Click2Pay. While the casinos have a limit on the least amount you can deposit, the number of payment options is mind-boggling - MasterCard, Visa, Delta, and Visa Electron cards. Credit card payments take 2-5 minutes to process. The service time is fast as well in the case of electronic transactions - two to five minutes for a credit card transaction. In the case of wire transfers, the time period is slightly longer - around two days. Checks take the longest, at 10-20 days. Not only do you have secure transaction means, the casinos are committed to a policy of detecting and preventing fraud in all aspects of its business. Customer satisfaction is the magic watchword these days, and at most online casinos, that certainly seems to be the case.

         
    Using poker odds calculators the good the bad and the ugly

     

    Poker players are always looking for ways to improve their game strategies, or little hints and tips they might be able to apply to their own games to make them more successful. One thing that can be very useful is to know the true odds of the particular game you are playing. Knowing your chances will sometimes prompt you to make changes in your game that you ordinarily might not make that could be the difference between winning and losing. Many players adjust their betting methods as well, so that they can better optimize their winnings. More experienced poker players can do this by observing the other players and making guesses as to what their odds of winning are against those particular players. They change their hands or playing styles according to what they determine their odds are. Some players are very experienced with calculating their odds in this method, but there is a more exact way to determine your poker odds. Poker odds calculators can be found as free downloads and for sale on the internet, and many poker players are starting to use these to get more exact odds. Some poker players opt to use hand odds calculators by entering the player and the board cards, then hitting a calculate button to get the odds for that particular player. The calculator will list how often that player will win the game, tie with other players, or lose altogether. These calculators can also be used to compare different hands with each other to help you determine the best poker hands. The only downside to using these calculators is that they don’t factor in the fact that some players will inevitably fold, and that extra money will be added to the pot with each round of bets. Many poker players who play in poker tournaments have also begun to use tournament equity calculators. These calculators are used to determine the average amount of prize money each participant should win based on the number of chips each player has during the tournament. The value of these chips will be less as the game progresses and players earn more chips. Some players will decide to sit out a tournament is they decide the prize pool isn’t large enough for them. The only bad thing about using this type of calculator is that it automatically assumes all players are of equal skill levels, and it doesn’t account for size and position of the blinds in the game, so it isn’t always one hundred percent accurate. Odds calculators are used by many poker players today, and are increasing in popularity. They can be very helpful in making decisions when it comes to many aspects of game play. It is important that players who use these calculators keep in mind that these calculators do have limitations and that the information they offer should never be the sole basis of how you play your game. There are too many variables to be factored in to make any calculation be totally accurate, and sometimes you just can’t beat good ole human intuition.

With this done, you can start playing immediately. The “play for fun” mode is an exact copy of the “play for real”, so you can enjoy a no-risk practice. The games are listed under the six categories of: card games, table games, 3 reel slots, 5 reel slots, Video poker and Numbers Games making the site navigation really straightforward. Once you’re ready for the added rush of gambling real money, it’s a simple matter of filling in a few card details, buying some chips and clicking on the tables!

Each month VC Casino has new promotions – currently it’s “Royal Windsor Monday Nights” promising to give away Ј50,000 during May. They’re also offering a new customer bonus of Ј50, Ј100 or Ј250 – but you have to stake 20 times the amount to claim the bonus. VC Casino has a noble pedigree.

They pride themselves on the highest levels of customer service and all transactions take place using the latest secure technology. So what’s good and bad about VC Casino?

It’s nice to get on with the games quickly, and without any clog up on your computer’s hard drive. The helpful instructions on each game make it easy for novices to get going and feel confident about what they’re doing. On the other hand, bonus hunters have to work hard for their money here. The pre-staking for the bonus is a real negative, particularly when many other online casinos give it to customers up front. Overall, VC’s a good UK online casino with a good look and a reliable reputation. We like to take our money here.

         
    Vegas the free stuff

     

    Don't know about you, but the idea of free stuff in Vegas conjures of the images of old when Vegas was Vegas. They knew you by name there (if you were a decent player). It was far less corporate than today. One constant is you can still get free cocktails pretty much anywhere in the casino-even the penny machine area. Getting free rooms and other perks in the old days was tough for machine players. You basically had to catch the eye of the pit boss. Today, that's all changedps, which is just a short way of saying complimentary or free stuff, are easier to get because all play can be tracked through player cards. One day the player card was introduced and video poker and slot machines that could read them started showing up. The system progressed into a fine-tuned compensation machine. You play $x and you get Y points to spend on stuff, like free rooms, clothes, food, cash back, etc. I guess the downside to all of this is the tight line casinos follow. They really follow a compensation rule set and don't deviate from it at all. It's nice, but the personal touch has left the place. But the upside is you can play anything in the casino and get points toward free stuff. Whether you like Keno, Bingo, slots, poker or sports betting, you're earning points toward free stuff. Of course, all of this has moved online. Many online casinos now offer player rewards and all sorts of goodies. Dare I say, they've outdone Vegas. It's a toss up. Brick and mortar casinos can give you free rooms and shows. Online casinos can give you most everything else, but they also give bonuses that offline casinos don't-like cash bonuses for playing, depositing, etc. Whether you're playing in the real world or a virtual one, make sure you're getting rewarded. In the real world, player cards also work as coupons. You can get discounts on shows, buffets and all sorts of stuff. And I wouldn't play at any online casino that didn't offer bonuses of some sort. One nice feature of player cards is the ability to get a printout of your wins and losses for the tax season-if you want. In the end, Vegas and online casinos offer all sorts of free stuff for players. The one constant is that you have to get into the system to get it. Before playing anywhere, do a little research and find out how to get free stuff and what you get.

         
    Video poker

     

    There are many out there among you, myself included, that at times simply want to sit down at the computer and play a thoughtless game that has a little kick to it to make my day a little more exciting. These are great days for simple slot machines. If you really want to get fancy you can go from a three reel machine into the five reel machines, or more, and maybe make things a little more exciting. But for many there is only one answer to a slot machine fix and that is Video Poker. Now you may be wondering what Video Poker has to do with slot machines, but the truth is that the two are very similar. They both have the same type of gaming interface and both are fairly easy to play. But the Video Poker aficionado can certainly tell you that the two are very far from the same. Video Poker is for the Poker enthusiast that doesn't really want to get involved in a full blown Poker game but also wants elements of the excitement that goes along with a great Poker game. Let me clarify. In a full on Poker game, be it at a live dealer online casino where there is a real person there dealing the cards, along with real players, or at a computer generated online Poker game there is the expectation that you will have to interact with someone at some point of the game. Most of the time that is a good thing, unless you are just anti-social (which isn't bad either). Video Poker takes away all of these elements, yet provides the player with the exact same game. In fact, in many ways it is much better than a traditional Poker game because it can be played much faster. There is absolutely no wait time while the new hand is dealt. A player has to really be on their toes if they are trying to play quickly because it can be overwhelming if someone isn't paying attention. For example, the online Poker world is one of convenience in and of itself. You never have to wait in line to play, or wait for a dealer to sit down to begin playing. Or even worse, wait for some inexperienced player to figure out what they are doing. Even in a live dealer online casino a player is at the whim of the online dealer and all of the real players that join. Video Poker is at the whim of the player playing the game anytime, anywhere, and any place. There are those that will always love their slot machines, but if the urge strikes Video Poker, even just a little, is a great distraction-and you might never go back.

         
    Video poker is it worth it

     

    Video Poker seems to be one of those games that people are a little dubious about until they give it a whirl, and the concept of it being worth it, of being able to gain an advantage is the biggest cause of this dubiousness. I was recently assured of a way of gaining the advantage in a progressive jackpot video poker game: Of course strategies vary from game to game, particularly between wild and no-wild games. However, on a machine that pays out 8-1 on a full house and 5-1 on a flush, there is, or so I'm assured, a means of gaining the advantage. First, locate a progressive jackpot machine whose jackpot is greater that the maximum bet x 1750; the reason that this is important is because it is only once the jackpot gets this high that the game is even with the house, therefore if the game isn't even there is no way of gaining an advantage. Now, in theory, or at least this is what I've been told; with each 350 x max bet addition to the jackpot, the players advantage increases by 1%. Therefore if you come across a progressive jackpot with a jackpot 2100 x the maximum bet, you have a 1% advantage; if you find one with a jackpot 2,450 x the maximum bet you have a 2% advantage. Unfortunately, getting to this stage of play requires a lot of time and a lot of money; more of both than most people have. Therefore short of building up the advantage as suggested above, it might be best to simply be familiar with the frequency of video poker hands, and from that determine the likelihood of gaining an advantage. The following statistics were given to me a by a guy in the industry, who claims they are the average frequency of video poker hands: A royal flush, which is of course what we all want appears once ever 32, 680 hands; a straight flush every 10, 163 hands; four of a kind every 425 hands; a full house every 87 hands; a flush every 90 hands; a straight every 89 hands; three of a kind every 14 hands; two pair every 8 hands; and a pair every 5 hands. Now, in terms of timing, based on these statistics the average video poker machine will therefore produce a royal flush ever 60 hours of constant rapid play; a straight will appear every 6 hours or so, as will a flush; whilst a 4 of a kind will pop up on a more or less hourly basis. Therefore the majority of the time the video poker player is playing at a disadvantage, however this will be somewhat compensated for by the more regular smaller hands. Is it possible to manipulate the outcomes, to create an advantage? In all honesty probably not, but isn't it fun trying?

         
    Video poker basics 10 best versions

     

    That beautiful Royal Flush! Straight Flush Four of a Kind Full House Flush Straight Three of a kind Two pair One pair of jacks or better Let’s begin your basic Video Poker Education. The two techniques that are mandatory to becoming an educated and prepared video poker player are: 1) how to read a pay schedule with additional education to know the difference between short/partial pay and full-pay versions, plus 2) strategies for all the VP types/games. Pay Schedules: In a grouping of video poker machines, known as banks or carousels, all of which may look exactly the same, casinos will often ‘mix-in’ several VP machines with inferior pay programs (short/partial pay). Often, in a bank of regular non-progressive, non-bonus VP machines, only 1 or 2 may be the Jacks or better 9/6 (nine coins for a full house, and 6 coins for a flush), while the rest are 8/5, 7/5, or even worse, 6/5. This means that one player, on the 9/6 machine, will be winning more for the same hands than the other players. If you bet 5 coins, all winning hands are paid out multiplied by a factor of five, except for the royal flush. This is a bonus amount designed as an incentive to play five coins. All those players who play less than maximum coins are setting up the best payoffs for those who do. Below is the average overall payback percentage for ten of the best VP versions. These percentages are maintained with maximum coins per hand, ‘full-pay’ schedule play and perfect strategy. 1) 10/4 Loose Deuces--4 Deuces pays 2500=100.97% 2) 9/5 Deuces Wild=100.76% 3) 7/5 Jokers Wild--5 of a kind pays 1000, Quad pays 100=100.64%. 4) 9/6 Double Double Jackpot Poker--2 pair pays 1=100.35% 5) 10/7 Double Bonus--2 pair pays 1=100.17% 6) Pick ‘Em Poker--pair of 9’s+ min. payout=99.95% 7) 11/7 Triple Bonus Poker--Kings+ min. payout=99.94% 8) 9/6 Jacks+--2 pair pays 2= 99.54% 9) 8/5 Bonus Jacks+--2 pair pays 2, Four Aces pays 400=99.17% 10) 9/6 Double Double Bonus--4 Aces with 2, 3 or 4 pays 2000=98.98% The first two numbers reflect the payouts for a full house and flush as per one coin payout. Therefore, a 10/7 Bonus VP version #5, would pay 10 coins for a full house and 7 coins for a flush for a one coin bet. The exception being for Deuces Wild versions--#1 and #2, which reflect the payouts for a straight flush and 4 of a kind as per one coin payout. The minimum payout for Deuces games is 3-of-a-kind. #4 ‘Jackpot’ version is also known as Aces and Faces where the higher payouts are reserved for Aces, Kings, Queens and Jacks. In addition, because Bonus VP versions offer higher payouts for four aces and four 2’s, 3’s and 4’s, the pair and two pair payouts are often the same--1 coin. VP versions that pay 2 for 2 pair are #8 and #9 Jacks+ and Bonus Jacks+ in the guide above. It bears repeating that these percentages are maintained with maximum coins, full-pay schedules and perfect strategy in play. The actual payout of any video poker machine is determined not only by its schedule but also by how you select discards. Since playing errors can reduce the payout, just sitting down in front of a full pay machine won’t help you unless you learn the correct strategies. Until we meet again to continue your VP education, may all your VP choices turn out to be ‘royalty’.

    Video poker history

     

    The video poker machine is one of the most popular gambling machines in existence today. Part poker, and part video game, it’s the perfect combination to make it a modern day gambling sensation. Although today’s video poker machines are the epitome of our current high tech in gambling, they have existed in simpler form for about two hundred years. Video poker is of course based on the card game of poker. The video poker machine of today is the result of the game of poker being manifested into different types of games at varying levels of technology through the generations. The game of poker has been played in America since the early 1880s, with the game being referred to as ‘Poker’ in 1834 by a man name Jonathan Green. The earliest recorded ancestors of the video poker machine were coin operated machines which used poker cards. These machines came into the scene in the late 1800s, and were manufactured by a company by the name of Sittman and Pitt of Brooklyn. The poker card machines were placed in liquor stores and cigar shops, and shortly worked their way across the U. S. These machines worked by the player putting a coin into the poker machine and pulling a handle, which spun five drums that held the poker cards. The player would wait for it to stop, while hoping for a winning hand. A winning hand was paid out in cigars or drinks. Sadly, and unbeknownst to the players, the Ten of Spades and the Jack of Hearts were left out of the deck to reduce the chances of winning. In 1901, Charles Fey made the next big improvement to the poker machine by adding the first ‘draw’ feature to the already wildly popular machine. Fey’s addition to the poker machine allowed the player to actually use their poker skills in the game, as opposed to being left to the mercy of blind luck. Charles Fey’s improvement allowed the player to hold certain drums still after the first spin, while pulling the handle to spin the remaining drums. This in effect was the first ‘hold’ and ‘draw’ combination. Over the following years, people’s interest in poker card machines diminished, with only an occasional hiccup of interest every now and again. It wasn’t until the late 1970s that the poker machine was reborn into the video poker machine, thus rekindling the love of video poker. The first of these machines appeared along side of the personal computer. It was this technology which made the video poker machine a reality. With its solid state circuitry, and its television like monitor, this clunky machine would give rise to the poker machines of today. These machines have made their homes in bars, casinos and even online.

         
    Video poker introduction

     

    The two main types of machines in casinos are slot machines and video poker machines. Slot machines tend to be more mundane. It's simply a matter of dumping coins into the machine and hitting a button to see if you got lucky. Video Poker, on the other hand, rewards players that can think. There's actually strategy involved in video poker. The game doesn't have a steep learning curve. In fact, the basics can be learned in minutes. If you have never played video poker before, let me give you one good piece of advice. Don't play unless you can afford to play the maximum credits. That's where the real money is made. I wish someone had told me that when I started out. I walked up to a quarter video poker machine, put in one quarter, and hit a royal flush. I got paid $62.50 for the quarter. However, had I played the maximum credits, just $1 more, I would have received $1,000. I lost $937.50, because I didn't play $1 more. That's a huge chunk of change to lose. Playing video poker is pretty simple. First, you load credits into the machine-remember to always play the max. You are dealt a hand of five cards. All machines tell you what combinations you need to get a payout. After looking over your initial hand, you decide what cards, if any, to keep. When you hit deal again, new cards are given to you and your hand is now complete. Should your final combination warrant a payout, it will be paid now. While it's rare to get a royal flush dealt to you on the first five cards, make sure you have all five cards held before hitting the deal button if this happens. Video poker never gets boring. There are so many types of video poker games out there now. They all offer different payouts and many offers different ways to play the game entirely. For instance, there are different styles like traditional, Joker's Wild, and Deuce's Wild. There are also different payout methods like Bonus, Double Bonus, Triple Bonus, More for Four and so on. Before playing any machine look to see what the required paying combinations are and what they pay. The best machine to play, from a consistency standpoint, is a 9/6 Jacks or Better machine. The 9/6 refers to the payout on a flush and full house. Not all Jacks and Better machines pay the same amount. Make sure yours is a 9/6 machine before playing. These machines give you the best bang for your buck. The 9/6 machine is known as a “full-pay” machine. It's named this because players are getting the best possible payout for their money. It's no secret that a skilled video poker player can almost eliminate the house advantage by playing a 9/6 machine and using the proper strategy.

         
    Video poker like a pro

     

    Video Poker is quite a popular game amongst gamblers. This well-liked game combines elements of both slots and poker and gives the player a definite opportunity to win. This is so because unlike roulette or slots that are dependant almost purely on ‘luck’, Video Poker is an effective blend of both luck and strategy. Hence, if you learn to use the best strategy and are blessed with luck along with it, there is nothing to stop you from doing very well. The results are always governed by a random number generator which moves through about 1000 random numbers, in a second. When the player asks the machine to deal, the Random Number Generator gives a number to the machine, which pertains to a card combination for display and the replacement cards. The odds that you will get a particular hand, is decided from the start of the game. For example, the odds of your receiving a royal flush without drawing are 1 for every 649,740 hands. As one is allowed to discard in a game of video poker, a definite pattern or strategy on the basis of which a player can do so can be followed. The important thing is to discard in a way that maximizes your chances of a win. The optimal strategy varies with the rules of the type of video poker being played. It may also vary with different play tables. Learn to read a payout schedule so as to know the difference between short, partial play and full-pay versions. A 9/6 video poker will have the royal flush after every 40,000 hands played – this equals approximately 80 - 100 hours of game time. This would seem to discourage betters from placing their bets in anticipation of a major payout, but the reality is that betters should always bet the maximum coins being allowed as this will minimize the house advantage. Joker’s Wild Strategies: For full pay, the pay schedule will be 7/5 machines, 7 coins for a full house and 5 coins for a flush. There are two versions of the game, in one the money is returned on a pair of Kings or more whereas in the other at least two pairs must be present before a payout. Obviously, the first game is better for more frequent winnings than the full pay version, however, if the payouts are varied, it may be that the two pairs version actually offers more in total payouts. Whatever the version you are playing, here are a few simple game play rules: 1. If you do not have a joker, keep 3 cards to a royal over a pair of kings of aces, as the payout in the former case will be more. 2. If three consecutive cards lead to a straight flush discard other cards for the higher payback. 3. Never feel hesitant to hold the joker alone. You will not be able to connect with a straight, flush, straight flush or a high pair. But the Joker can give you four new cards and a chance to win. Deuces Wild Strategies: 1. In the Full-pay Deuces Wild versions there will be 9/5’s with 9 coins for a straight flush and 5 coins for a 4-of-a-kind. 2. Never hesitate in throwing away your 5 cards. You may get additional cards that are deuces and keeping an Ace of a Kings will not help you if the next hand ends up being four, fives or sevens. 3. With Jacks or better, players should throw away full hands only 3% of the time as compared to Deuces Wild players who throw away about 20% of the time – that is every fifth hand. 4. Do not keep two pairs; make a selection between the two. 5. Inside straights must be kept only if they show the best possible return from the initial five cards and one should never discard a pair to hope for the straight. 6. In Deuces Wild, the number of deuces dealt in the initial hand determines the strategy. It is important to note that only once in every 5000 hands, will there be four deuces. Due to its rarity, this hand is a secondary jackpot that will get you winnings.

         
    Video poker machines machine overview

     

    With the increase in the popularity of poker over the last few years, more and more players are turning to video poker machines to satisfy their poker playing sweet tooth. Players have found that not only is video poker relatively easy to learn to play, but it is also a great way to hone real life poker skills. As a result, the video poker machine has been placed in an ever increasing number of establishments. One of the most appealing aspects of the video poker machine is that the odds of winning are some of the best you’ll find in a game of chance. Video poker comes in just below Craps and Blackjack in the odds-of-winning department. Along with good odds, the video poker machine gives players the chance to take their time in making decisions, which allows the player to develop a strategy on the fly. At a glance, the video poker machine could be mistaken for a slot machine, for they tend to have the same basic shape. Slot machines are a game based solely on chance, while with a video poker machine player skill comes into the mix. Although the slot machine and the poker machine both use the element of random display of images, the poker machine allows the player to keep and throw away chosen cards. One of the first things a player should do is to look at the payout schedule of each machine considered for play. Look to see which machine pays out the best for each combination of winning hands. Just because the machines are located in the same area doesn’t mean they all payout the same. In order to play video poker, the player must know how to play the regular game of Five Card Draw Poker. If you already know how to play Five Card Draw Poker at the poker table, then you will be quite at home on the video poker machine. Video poker machines accept varying amounts of coins, with the general range being between one to five coins. The machine pays out on a winning hand based on the amount of coins used. More coins equal a higher payout on a win. Therefore, it pays to always use the maximum coin allowed on your chosen machine. After coins are inserted into the machine, and the player hits the ‘deal’ button, cards are dealt out in a random fashion, just as if the player were in a real poker game. The player is dealt out five cards on the screen. The player then uses either a ‘hold’ button to choose the cards to keep, or uses a ‘discard’ button to throw away unwanted cards. Most video poker machines make use of the ‘hold’ button, but always be sure which button your current machine uses. It only takes a second to glance at the controls, and it might save you from losing your first hand due to a mistake. Once the choice has been made of which cards to keep, the player then hits the ‘deal’ button again. The player is then dealt out a number of cards equal to those that were discarded. If the player winds up holding a winning hand, then the video poker machine pays out relative to the payout schedule.

         
    Video poker myths

     

    Las Vegas casinos are full of "crazy" video poker players. These players love the game-and why wouldn't they-but somewhere along the way they came up with some thought on how to win that's just plain false. Today, we'll look at a few myths and see if there's any truth to them. If you're a sociologist in the making, spending hours in a Vegas casino might turn out to be an interesting study. Myth: If I slam the buttons hard, the machine will respond. Yes, you'll see this often-sometimes from frustrated players. It's just a machine and it has no sensors built in that tell it how hard something was pressed. The button was either pressed or it wasn't-that's it. You might even see people who will only slam a button when they're about to receive cards. Others slam them when holding a card. Either way, it makes no difference. Of course, if you beat up the machine too much, security might come over to talk to you. Myth: Cold Currency Works I don't know where this started, but for decades many video poker players have put quarters, nickels and whatever in the freezer prior to coming to the casino-or they feel the change before accepting it from the change person. The myth says that cold currency somehow tricks the machine into paying out. What? This doesn't even make sense. The machine simply counts your currency and gives you the appropriate credits. It doesn't measure the temperature of your change. You could put hot or cold coins in the machine and your result will be the same. Myth: Don't play credits or currency This myth goes hand in hand with the previous one. There's a group of video poker players that believes you should only play credits-another group says only currency. The thought is that the machine plays differently based on whether you're using credits or currency. As a player, you're always using credits. Even if you put money in, it's transferred to credits. The machine doesn't care what you do and the casino has no preference. It's all money to them. Machines aren't set up to give "preference" to certain types of players. In future articles, we'll tackle more Video Poker myths. Some of these myths are fun, but others can be detrimental to your bankroll. As a Video Poker player, you're first goal should be to have fun. Educating yourself about how Video Poker machines work is a great first-step. Most, and I mean most, Video Poker players haven't a clue about the how the game works internally. They simply get all of these myths in their head and assume them to be accurate. Once you get these out of the way, you can have a blast playing Video Poker and you can attack the game and seize your winnings.

         
    Virtual casinos the new era of gambling

     

    Las Vegas, it is a city built in the midst of a dessert. Geographically, this city would not have been suitable for habitation because of its harsh climate. But despite of all these, the place has been a paradise to some people, the gamblers. What should have been a dry and barren land became a haven of wealth, and abode of the world’s greatest structures. All that is good in Las Vegas owed itself to one vice, gambling. Gamblers from all the corners of the world come here to place their bets in every casino, bluff every poker game, pull lucky levers of slot machines, and enjoy the thrill roulette. This thriving industry has set this city as one of the most exciting city of the world. However, Las Vegas has found itself a competition. But not from another gambling cities like Monte Carlo and Macao. It is in the Internet. Online gambling has also fints its way in the dotcom business. The main reason of this business success is a thriving millions of potential bettors around the world connected by World Wide Web. Unlike going to Las Vegas or any other gambling city, gambles would not pay for airplane ticket and high room accommodation rates in a five star hotel found in the city. All they need to do is to sit down in front of their PC Screen and enjoy the clicking of the mouse while being thrilled of the coming results in the online gambling. In online gambling, gamblers need not to worry to store their cash in the vault. Every monetary transaction is done through bank transactions. The industry extends its benefits to the financial sector from the bank fees in every transaction. Online gambling has also finds its own adherents in the Internet. These enthusiasts gather in an online forum discussing about gambling and the odds of the house. There are also gambling sites, which the gamblers called the rogue sites. These are sites that would not allow the credit won to be withdrawn immediately. Some sites would only allow a certain quota of the credit earned or a certain time so that bettors will have no other choice but to place the bet until they can meet the requirements of withdrawal. This would eventually make the house always in favor of the odds. Online gambling forum warns online gamblers to these rouge sites. While the gambling industry is promising, it has also their nemeses which lead its way into its downfall. One of this is the gambling site operators themselves. Obtaining a random number is still an arbitrary. Many skeptics believe that online gambling programs can be manipulated. Other gambling sites counter this skepticism by publishing their audit of odds and even announcing the higher probability of winning of the bettor. Not to mention also the rouge sites who are sharking on the bettors’ money leaving them always empty handed. These are few issues that greatly affects the business. But there is no greater adversary of the business than the US government itself. Everything has been changed after 9/11 bombings. The Wire Act has been promulgated to combat money-laundering cases. Money laundering has already been outlawed in the US and some parts of the world. It is believed and an accepted fact that laundered money is the source of funds for terrorist and other criminal syndicates. The anonymous nature of the bettors can be potential way of harboring fraudulent money transactions. With this reason, has reached its darkest period when it was outlawed in the US. Major Internet site follow suits by removing any advertisement promoting online gambling. However, online gambling has also won some allies in the US Congress because of its potential cash cow for tax. Rep. Barney Franks, Robert Flex, and Jim McDermott passed different congressional bills that would legalize and regulate operations of online casinos. It is yet to be known if these bills can pass the US Congress. But online casinos have already lost millions in terms of a potential market in the US. While the US is hostile to online casinos, the European Union and some Caribbean Countries welcome it as one of its thriving and growing industry. The outlawing of the online casinos in the US prompted Antigua and Barbados to present its case to the World Trade Organization. Thanks to the laws in trade liberalization, WTO favored them and rejected any claims by the US that is only protecting public safety in outlawing it. The case is currently in a debate in WTO court. If the US Will loss the case, they will be forced to legalize and pay indemnities to the affected countries as will be ruled by the WTO Court. Online casinos may be the greatest rival to the traditional brick and mortar, but it is yet to be seen if the worldwide public will accept it without any skepticism. Not only that, online casino has still to win its case to some countries, especially in the US, which outlawed them. It is yet to prove that this industry is not a vessel of fraudulent transaction. Online casinos may not yet equal its success to the real casinos; however, it will eventually replace little by little the traditional ones. New technological innovation has also paved way to the new era of gambling industry.
