A new thing to keep me busy!

Hi again! I’ve been away now a bit, since I have had a lot of things to do. I have been playing quite a lot of casino games online, and I’ve found a new thing to look for. It’s not a big favourite quite yet, but I think it’s a nice complement to live casino and slots.

It’s of course Video Poker I’m talking about! The old, classic things that completely sparkle of nostalgia! Almost every casino has some to choose from and it’s easy to learn. When you are a bit tired of the usual slots and all the card games, it’s quite nice to change to go over to the more simpler games. Although, I don’s say the video poker are easy games. it all depends on how much time and energy you want to put in. It can be as easy as playing a little bit for fun, and it can be as hard as advanced and complex strategies.

Mostly I donated use any specific strategy, I just focus on having a good time. Well, I do think about the hand ranking and hoping for the best, but I don’t go any further than that. Mostly I play Deuces Wild and Joker Wild, since I like to have it a bit easier. I sometimes play tens or better just because I kind of like it, but mostly the ones that has a wild card in them. It kind of reminds me a bit of slots, but it still gives me something else.

Unfortunately there is not many bonuses when it comes to video poker. Also there is not any free spins or any things like that. And if you have bonus money, your wager will not count to reduce the demanded wagering amount of the bonuses. However, I think it’s quite nice to sit by the computer and play some poker infused game all by my self, just to have something else than the spinning slots. I get to affect it a little bit, and most of it is just good old randomness. Oh, you can on some games get an RTP on over 100%, if you play with the correct strategy. I have not tried it yet, but I’m thinking of doing it soon.

Anyhow, I hope you all are well, and that I will check in on you soon again!

My latest find!

Hi guys! I have had a real blog break for a couple of months. I actually stopped playing for a while, since my new boyfriend didn’t quite like it i thought that yeah, i can just do it a little less then. And i kinda forgot about the blog also since we had such a great summer, but now I am back to give you great tips about casino and games. Hope you are ready for an amazing fall! And no me and boyfriend has not broke up if think that is the reason i am back. He has just gotten used to that this will be a part of my life and ours!

Today i thought i might give you guys a little gift. Yes that is right, i have found a casino guide that is one of my new favourites. When i use casino guides i often look for a couple of things. If they have any offers that are exclusive, if the name is well known (this is not that important but if they are a bit well known they often have great offers) and if the casinos they have on their site is safe and responsible.

I have told you before about my huge crush for slot machines, and now i have found the absolutely best site for me with free spins no deposit uk. It is a site where they tip about new slot machines and how to get free spins at different casino sites, how great isn’t that? It certainly suits me anyway.

i like it because their slogan is that “everyday is a free spin out there to find”, right now they don’t tip on free spins everyday, its more like 3-4 days a week. And i really hope that they will be better and do it everyday, otherwise they don’t deserve to have that kind of slogan! At least that is what i think. I don’t know about you?

On the site i also found out that some casinos that i haven’t been a member at has daily missions where you can win free spins if you complete them. So i have a few things to do now! Both get all the free spins that where available there and to do some missions. Another thing i liked was that they did news as soon as a new slot is released. Something that I really like since i want to try out the new slots as soon as they are released.

gambling problemWell that was my tip of the day! If you have another guide that you think will suit me please contact me or leave a comment and i will check it out. And the little reminder that you haven’t got since april is to play responsible. It is very important to ask for help if you need to and nothing to be ashamed of. Everyone can get an addiction, and if you think you have one, talk to someone in your family if that isn’t to hard for you. Then there is always contact groups where you can get the help you need!

 

How to play Baccarat

baccarat - a card gameBaccarat is very simple to learn, it’s fun & has surprisingly good odds. Here we may look at baccarat game rules. The goal with playing baccarat is to draw two and three card hand with the value closer to nine than banker’s hand.

Value of Cards

While you play the baccarat the cards have following value:

o The numbered cards have the actual value.
o Ten, Jack, Queen & King count as Zero.
o Ace counts as one.
o If the value of the cards you are given is more than 10, then you subtract ten. So 8 to 9 hand totals seven (after subtracting ten from seventeen)

Playing the baccarat

In baccarat several decks are used. Before the cards are dealt, Player wagers on whether Player’s hand or Banker’s hand will be closest to total of nine. The bet can also be placed on a tie. When the game starts, 2 hands are dealt – 1 for the Banker and 1 for the Player.

When the bets are placed, the bankers hand & the players hand are actually dealt according to the fixed rules, and giving the final hands of 2 or 3 cards. Value of the hand is been determined by adding the values of the cards for getting the total. Tens & face cards are also counted as 0, whereas other cards are also counted by number of the “pips” on card face. Only last digit of total is been used, thus all the baccarat hands have the values in range 0 – 9 inclusive.

If neither of the banker or player is dealt a total of 8 or nine when given the first two cards the game continues. If Player has an initial total of 0–5, he draws a third card. If the initial total is 6 or 7, Player stands. The same rule applies for the banker if the player didn’t draw a card. If Player drew a third card different rules apply whether Banker will be aloud to draw or not.

Personally, I know that the house edge in Baccarat is low, 1,24% but to me this is a far more complex game than playing slots. I think that i am going to continue to play my beloved slot machines. Have I told you guys that you can even auto play the slots?

It means that you don’t even have to click the button each time! You can simply decide that you want it to autoplay for 50 round or even 500 at some site! And then you can relax and only look at the coins that keep popping into your account! Haha at least it often is going that way for me! But it isn’t that common that i use the auto play function. Cause i do like to play all the free spins and bonus round myself. Oh, i just realised that i made this post all about slot machines again. Oops, i guess we could say that I am slot lover!

That was all for this time! Play responsible my dear friends! You can contact me also if you feel like you need to talk to someone. I am here for you!

Tips on how to find promotions and bonuses

I personally love to hunt for bonuses and good promotions. If you’re really lucky you can even find free competitions and raffles. For example the bookmaker site Paf have had many free raffles, in which you can win extremely good prizes like trips to another countries. So how do you find these grand promotions and bonuses? Well, you’ll just have to search the Internet!

Sometimes you can get across good casino guides that writes news and recommendations on where to find best bonuses and promotions. For my Swedish followers I can give you a tip about a site called Casinocenter.se that provides you with news and campaign tips. Sometimes they offer special campaign codes that you as a new player can take advantage of to get an extra big bonus. They also provides you with examples of bookmakers with good offers.

So what is a good bonus? You sometimes see offers like: 100% match on you first deposit! Or even a 400% bonus match. You can often get up to hundreds of pounds in bonuses if you use them correctly. BUT I advise you to take a good look a the wager requirements, because they are the once that really determines if a bonus is good or not. They can be very different from each other, sometimes you have to wager the bonus x60 and sometimes it’s only a few times. In some terms you have to wager both the bonus and deposit before you can withdraw, so take a close look on the terms and conditions. A good ground rule is that the better the bonus sounds, the more grand it is, the wagering requirements are often higher.

Also, all games doesn’t contribute to the wagering requirements, but for me as a slot lover that is no problem because slots almost always contribute with 100 percent. The only thing that is a bit boring is when you have to wager your winnings and the slot doesn’t have any bonus rounds or extra features. Since i love it i tend to choose slots where i get that also.

When I register I almost always look at the promotions the casino offer to see if they are a little bit better than standard offers. Because I don’t want to be rewarded only when I register, but also as a loyal player. For instance if free spins are handed out to already existing customers when new games are released.

Speaking of free spins, it’s getting more common that welcome offers contains free spins and that new players get them directly when register without having to make a deposit. Some casinos has even free spins with no wagering requirements! Yes i know! It sounds absolutely amazing. And of course it is.

But remember what i have always told you, if you can’t control you’re gambling you’re not supposed to play. Offers like these are made to make us become members at their sites and you always have to remember that. So as long as you can handle it I tell you, grab all the offers and promotions you can get your hands on!

How to play blackjack online

How to play BlackjackBlackjack is one of the most popular online casino card games. To make sure you do not lose, you have to be aware of basic rules of a game. You have to know when you can hit, when to double or when to take the insurance. Every decision that you take may have the significant impact on final outcome of a game.

Your goal in blackjack is to beat the dealer and to get as close as to 21 as you can (not over 21, then you bust). In blackjack faced cards count as ten. Both you and dealer will start a game with 2 cards each. The dealer may have a single card faced down and the other card faced up and you will get both cards faced-up. After getting your cards, you choose to hit or stand. Before doing this, you can also double (you then double your wager and take only one card) or split (make two hands if two cards have same value). If you choose to stand you won’t take any more cards and if you chose to hit you can ask for more cards until you are satisfied with the number or you bust.

After your turn, it’s the dealer’s turn to play. The dealer may continue to hit until he or she beats you or busts. The dealer must either stand on 17 or continue to draw depending on the game. If you beat the dealer you win!

In the beginning of the round, if the dealer’s faced-up card is an ace, you may consider taking the insurance. That means you place half the value of the original bet to an insurance that the dealer has blackjack. If the dealer has blackjack you loose your regular bet, but win the insurance bet. If the dealer does not have the blackjack, then you will win a game by having the better hand, however lose an amount that you bet on the insurance. Also you can loose both the insurance bet and the original bet if the dealer’s hand is not blackjack, but simply better than yours.

What I’ve read and in my own experience it’s never good taking an insurance, so I usually don’t. At least I read it at casinoomega.com when searching for some tips on how to play blackjack online.

How to Play Roulette

play rouletteOk, so my second favorite casino game is roulette. It’s an easy game but it also contains a little bit of strategy, skill, and a big portion of luck. There are roulette systems that are used to gain winning, but if they work or not can be discussed.

BASIC RULES OF ROULETTE
– In online Roulette you do not compete with other players just against the dealer.
– Players purchase chips that are used to place the bets. You have several betting options to choose from.
– A croupier spins a wheel and then spins a ball in an opposite direction.
– Your bet should be placed before spinner and dealer calls NO BETS!
– The ball falls down in on of 37 or 38 pockets.
– In case, you win the spin, you may cash the color chip for the cash chip of some value.

CORRECT MANNERS AT TABLE
– Never touch or try to touch the chips after dealer yells no bets.
– When dealer calls no bets, you can’t change an amount of the bet.

The most common game is European Roulette which is played with 37 pockets. They are numbered 0-37 and this wheel is also used in French Roulette. In American Roulette there are 38 pockets, and here the wheel has a double zero which increases the advantage of the house.

The bets are called inside bets and outside bets, except for in French Roulette which has more betting options.

Bets in European Roulette:

Inside bets
Straight (or Single) – a single number bet.
Split – a bet on two adjoining numbers.
Street – a bet on three numbers on a single horizontal line.
Corner (or Square) – a bet on four numbers in a square layout
Six line (or Double Street) – a bet on two adjoining streets
Trio – a bet on the intersecting point between 0, 1 and 2, or 0, 2 and 3.
Basket (or the first four) – a bet on 0, 1, 2, and 3 (single-zero layout only).

Outside bets
1 to 18 (Manque) – a bet on the first low eighteen numbers
19 to 36 (Passe) – a bet on the latter high eighteen numbers
Red or black (Rouge ou Noir) -a bet on which color the roulette wheel will show.
Even or odd (Pair ou Impair) – a bet on an even or odd nonzero number.
Dozen bets – a bet on a group of 12 numbers.
Column bets – a bet on all 12 numbers on any of the three vertical lines
Snake Bet – A bet of the following numbers: 1, 5, 9, 12, 14, 16, 19, 23, 27, 30, 32, and 34. Not all casinos allows this bet.

I guess a very famous bet is to put all your money on red. There are several stories about this like people who have soled everything and gone to the casino to put it all on red. Like the Englishman Ashley Revell who put £100 000 on red and the ball hit red number seven.

My favorite bet is also red and I have picked up some great winnings from placing this bet. I prefer playing roulette in a live casino, but nowadays you can get that feeling online as well, when the action of a real roulette table is streamed to your computer.

Playing slots

Slot games are really fun to play, they are my favorite game! This is what i think, because they are so simple, it’s just pressing a button. Of course they are more fun to play if you learn the features and get to know the symbols, because then you know what your hoping for when spinning the wheels! There are a few games that has so many features that you don’t even can remember them all. That is something that i think is really exciting when i am playing. A lot of casino sites has added to their slot section that you can choose games with a lot of features in the menu. You then get a section with all games that have a lot of features and bonus games in them. You can also choose other things like fantasy or type of slot! Most casinos offer over 500 slot games os there is definitely something for everyone.

Have you heard of pay out percentage? It’s the money that are expected to return to the player. There is the set limit and slot game can’t give the payout percentage below a set limit. So, following the rule, slots games online give the payout percentage while ranging from around 75% – 98%. You must check percentage of the payout prior to you play the online slots. NetEnts newer slots usually have a pay out percentage of 96%-97% percent, which is quite ok. The slot Blood Suckers though, have a payout percentage of 98% percent, which is very good.

Slot games that give high rate of the return are named loose slots. Often this rate of the return range from around 94% – 98%. Casinos online at times alter the limit to attract more players. Few casinos do not mind giving rate of return like 99.9%! As I have mentioned before the games from NetEnt has and RTP that often is higher then 96% and that is something that i appreciate really much.

Slot games, which give the low rate of the return, are named as tight slots and payout that is offered by the slots is not very high as offered by loose slots. You might think that it is of no use for playing these slots however that is not at all true. Most of the tight slots give you huge jackpots. Thus, although payout return is very less, value of the jackpot covers for that.

Not like the traditional mechanical slots, slot games online give you more reel and pay lines. There are classical slots as well if you prefer them, but I think the more modern video slots with special features and bonus games are more fun to play. The latest one that i found was about the rockband Guns N’ Roses! It was so fun because you could choose from five of their top songs to play in the background, and when you won something you got to se a video from one of their concerts! I haven’t seen that before so it was a really nice feature. Otherwise I highly recommend the slot Koi Princess.

Which games to play

slot mega fortuneToday there are a good variety of games to choose from playing online. My favorite games are slots, especially jackpot slots with an enormous progressive jackpot that allows you to dream about being a multimillionaire when playing. I usually likes NetEnt’s slots like Mega Fortune that has paid the biggest jackpot online to one sole player: €17,8 million! If you want to try it out, I saw that you can try out Mega Fortune for free at the casinoguide casinosnack.com.

Unfortunately the theoretical return on slot games aren’t that great compared to others. Video poker is a bit higher, almost 100% and since they are quite similar to slots this can be an option. Scratchcard and keno are examples of other games that can be fun to play. As i already have told you my favourite type of slot machines are video slots from a game developer called NetEnt. They are Swedish and the games are so amazingly made! There are often a lot of 3D effects in these games and a lot of bonus games. So it can be really fun to play at these, but let’s talk about my other favourite game, table games!

Playing table games, my favorite is roulette. Don’t ask me why, I think it’s the simplicity of the game since I do like slots. In blackjack for example you have to think quite fast if your using strategy, especially when playing at a live casino. Did you know you can play live, but online? Some bookmakers provides live casino online, with live dealers at a streamed table. That’s a fun experience! I can tell you that it really feels like you are sitting at a real table at a casino, they only thing missing is of course the feeling of having people around. You can then choose a sit where they offer live casino where everyone has their webcam on. Perhaps that is something that isn’t for everyone, but if you are a very social person then this is something for you.

When getting tired of casino games you can always head over to the poker och betting section, if they are provided by the bookmaker. I sometimes play a little bit of poker, but only tournaments, because I think it’s relaxing and nice with the possibility to chat with other players. Speaking of a social game, have you tried out bingo? Bingo makes it possible to chat with other players and play chat games that are quite enjoyable. I have actually met a couple of friends at these chat rooms. We often try to play together in the same rooms and talk about how the day has been. So it isn’t so bad to play always!

As you have learned now, i always end my post with writing a little bit about addiction. Anyone can become an addict and gambling addiction is like every other addiction. So please remember to ask for help if you need it, and set a limit to your gambling before you start!

How I choose an online casino

Online casinoMy first advice in this blog is about how to look for a good online casino. There are today loads of casinos that wants to attract new customers using promotions or special features. But don’t get carried away and register at the first casino you get across. Take your time to read reviews and talk to other players in special forums so you can find out if the casino is serious or not. You can often relay on well known casinos which have operated for a long time, although new casinos often gives better bonuses and promotions if you’re willing to take a chance. They have to do so, because the competition about customers today is really difficult.

When searching for a casino, be sure they have a proper license. Malta and Gibraltar are common places that provides licenses. Also, make sure they are secure. You can often read about the security in an FAQ section at the casino. It’s also a good thing if the casino provides fast withdrawal, since you might not want to wait too long for your winnings. Check out the payment methods if you have a preference which one to use if your about to make a deposit.

Another thing you have to take notice of is if the casino is supported by your device. Nowadays it’s more common that you can play at any casino which ever device you use, but a couple of years ago there were special casinos for players using Mac. The digitalisation of everything is going so fast and forward so almost every phone with a touch screen. So it is nice that the development is going forward! Maybe we will be able to play casino in our watches in the future? Who knows!

Once these things are sorted you can see to your own preferences, like which games you prefer and if the casino supplies them. How many games do the casino have? Does it have good promotions? Are there other sections, besides casino, like poker and betting? Does it have a modern or old fashioned look? I usually look into the game section a lot since i want all my favourite slots to be offered at the sites I am playing at. My favourite right now are the slot machines from a company Net Entertainment, they usually have a really good RTP. Which is the return to player and you want that to be high! It is often over 96%!

These are the things I look for when choosing a casino. There are many good once out there, at the moment I’m a customer at about 15 casinos. You don’t have to limit yourself to just one casino, since there can be good promotions popping up at different casinos which you want to take advantage of. Just remember to ask for help if you feel like you are having or about to get a gambling addiction! You don’t want it to go to far and have lied to your family and all. No please always keep in mind to play responsible if you are going to play.

Casino Games Online – Rules for Beginner

Casino gamesInternet has now become part of daily life for lots of people and casino games online appeared on Internet in mid 1990s.

Casino online games can give a fascinating type of the entertainment and allows you to enjoy it in the comfort of your home. Convenience plays big role in games online and playing online allows you to select the time and place to enjoy the games. It also allows you a certain privacy if your not comfortable playing among others. So there is a lot of positive things about playing online.

While playing at casino games online, the players are presented with an opportunity to win the real money prizes. There is wide range of various games that are available that are adapted to play it online. Game enthusiasts can find a lot of games that are available, from roulette to blackjack. You can also play for free money, but then you can’t win real money. But it’s a good way to learn.

The best thing is you can play without leaving front door! Nowadays you can also play at your mobile or iPad, which makes casinos even more accessible. So you can play while your waiting for the bus, while your traveling or even when you are on the toilet! Yes it is very accessible and many good features comes along while your playing.

Online games have also proved being very simple to play. Innovation of games online has made a game accessible to a lot of people all across the world and sometimes it allows you to chat with other people. But, some rules should be met prior to starting an online game: First, you should select the online casino very carefully. Ideally, the one you select for gambling should be deemed real and authentic. I will give you some advises on what to look for when it comes to choosing the right casino. If you’re a beginner it’s east to choose the first one you see or a casino with a nice design but with bad qualities.

But with gambling there aren’t only good things, and I feel like I have to talk about this if I myself want to be responsible. Since it is so accessible there is also a huge risk that people play too much. At a real casino it is much easier to notice the ones who has a problem and handle it. But there are a lot of people who can hide there problem at home. And it is much easier to keep on playing even though you have run out of money. So one of my biggest tips for you is to set a limit for how much you can play for each day, week or month. In that way you can control your gambling so you don’t cross any limits. So if you are playing, play responsible!

That was all for today, remember that you are welcome to contact me if you feel like it.
