Basic Card Odds and Probabilities

If you’re planning to make a bit of money playing cards, there’s a few things you need to bear in mind. Firstly, what are you playing and who’s it with? You’ll have better luck playing Blackjack in a casino where the dealer stands on soft 17. Second, is there anything you can use to increase your advantage? Things like an online casino bonus so you don’t need to use solely your own money. And finally, do you have a good grasp of the odds and probabilities involved? Well, the first two are on you, but luckily this infographic gives you a handy breakdown of some of the essential numbers involved so that you can get to grips with the maths before you sit down at the table or computer to play some games!

Internet Slots vs Real Slot Machines

Playing slot games is a great way to get your heart pumping.

But one question remains unanswered: which is better, online slots or real machines?

For convenience: online slots.

Perhaps the most obvious benefit of playing online games is the ability to play anywhere, anytime. Avoid the hassle and expense of travelling to an actual casino and instead enjoy easy access to your favourite slots on your laptop, tablet or mobile.

Being able to play slot games on your phone also helps you spend much less than you likely would in a real gambling venue. You can easily stop and log out when you’ve reached your budget, rather than feeling a need to keep on playing simply because you’re stuck inside a casino and the night’s still young.

Low rollers rule Las Vegas

The game is changing in Las Vegas. There are still plenty of incredible ways to enjoy the place if you’re a high rollers, but now the low rollers are arriving in droves. They love to party and hit the clubs, but they’re really not into gambling that much. Time has a story focusing on the new trend.

Vegas is packed again, but the casinos aren’t making the gaming revenues they saw in past years. We’ve discussed this many times, as the trends have been obvious.

One issue is that the casinos don’t cater to serious gamblers like before. The new corporate entities are so obsessed with maximizing every inch of the casino that they are flooding them with slots. Blackjack doesn’t get the attention we saw in the past, but this is one of the games that attracts people who like to gamble. The casinos have played with the rules way too much.

It’s harder for a group of guys who want to gamble as a group to find a table in the best casinos that will satisfy everyone in the group. Limits are too high, so while a casino might not want guys who play the $10 tables, their friends might be the ones who bet $100 per hand.

I think casinos need to think about catering to guys who love to gamble, and that will help create environments that attract more high rollers.
