Are Slots Jackpots Worth It?

Posted on 4 Jun 2011 by bwright | Casino Games

People often wonder whether slots jackpots are worth the time and money it can take to win them.

Play at Rome Casino now to give its slots collection a go and see if you can win the big jackpot prizes.

First of all, if you don’t like playing slots and prefer table games, you should just play table games. While slots jackpots can be awe inspiring in size, there is no point forcing yourself to play slots if you hate it. There’s no guarantee that you’ll ever win a jackpot, so just playing for the top prize is not a good use of your time and money.

Another thing to consider is whether you can play for a reasonably large number of spins. If you go in thinking that 100 spins will do the trick… well, that could be true, but you’d be very lucky! You’ll be in it for the long run to try winning a major jackpot prize, so you tend to need a decent bankroll and a game that you enjoy.

Why not try your hand at the jackpot slots available at Rome Casino? As a new player you can claim up to $10,000 in deposit bonuses, which will help you to get a good start in trying to win a major slots prize!

Blackjack or Baccarat?

Posted on 2 Jun 2011 by bwright | Casino Games

Are you better off playing blackjack or baccarat? Both are games with high class reputations, but which is kinder to your bankroll? Read on as we take a look at the advantages of both these games.

Join Rome Casino now to play at an online casino with a refined design scheme and big bonuses for high rollers.

First of all, let’s take a look at game difficulty. Everyone knows how to play blackjack, but few can play well. On the other hand, practically everyone assumes baccarat is more difficult than it is, yet anyone can play like a champ. In blackjack you need to make the correct choices consistently and many players enjoy that challenge. Baccarat has one optimal choice – bet on the Banker position. If you want to feel classy but could do without the tension headache, we think baccarat is the way to go.

Next, let’s compare the games on house edge. The blackjack house edge depends on a lot of things – what you do, what rule variant the house is using, etc. It can be less than 1%, or it can be upwards of 5% for the beginner. The Banker bet in baccarat, with a 5% commission charged, is just 1.06%. Yes, a master blackjack player wins out, but are you willing to put in that effort?

Finally, we’ll consider hand speed. To be honest, a lot of this comes down to how long you take with your decisions in blackjack. Regardless, even if you make every decision instantly, blackjack takes longer per hand at most online casinos. This means that baccarat is a better choice for players who like fast action.

To try out these popular tables games, join Rome Casino now and be sure to claim your $10,000 in welcome bonuses so that you can play at even higher limits for bigger wins!

Best Craps Bets

Posted on 1 Jun 2011 by bwright | Casino Games

Not all craps bets are made alike – some are very good and others you want to avoid like the plague. Read on to learn about the best craps bets in terms of house edge and payout.

Join Win Palace now to play one of the best craps games online and remember that you can claim up to $7,777 in welcome bonuses as a new player!

Pass Line Bet/Don’t Pass Bet

The Pass Line bet and Don’t Pass bet are the foundation bets in craps. Standard craps wisdom says to bet on the Pass Line with its low house edge of just 1.40%. However, the Don’t Pass bet is actually the better play, as it has a 1.36% house edge, slightly lower than the Pass Line. While you’ll get dirty looks for playing Don’t Pass in a live casino, no one is the wiser when you play online.

Odds Bets

Whether you are backing or laying the odds, this is one of the best bets in the casino. While you need to make a slightly sub-optimal Pass Line or Don’t Pass bet to play the odds, you actually get a true payout on this bet. There is no house edge, so you always want make an odds bet once a point has been established.

Big 6/8

These are terrible bets to make, and placing or buying the 6 or 8 is a much better option. Only suckers play Big 6 or Big 8, and the casino appreciates the oversight with a hefty 9.09% house edge compared to the 1.52% you can get for a Place 6/8 bet or 4.76% for a Buy 6/8 bet.

Join Win Palace and start playing craps now! Remember to avoid the sucker bets and be sure to claim the thousands of dollars in bonus cash that are waiting for you!

Casino Holdem Strategy

Posted on 26 May 2011 by bwright | Casino Games

Casino Holdem is a popular form of casino poker that is played at most online and land casinos. Casino Holdem is an attractive option for players who enjoy the variety of poker and also the fast paced action of casino gaming.

Join Cherry Red today and start playing casino holdem.

Games such as blackjack and baccarat have been around for a long time and as such there are familiar strategies that abound for these games.  However casino holdem is quite new and as such a steadfast strategy has yet to be developed. There will never be a perfect casino holdem strategy, but there are steps you can take to make the game easier, more profitable and ultimately more enjoyable.

Play the Bonus

Playing the bonus on a casino holdem table can be very profitable. The payouts are normally higher for the bonus plus you don’t have to rely on the dealer to qualify to get your winnings.

Bet Half

This may sound like a funny strategy if you want to win but it will pay dividends in the long run. Unlike blackjack and other table games, the betting in casino holdem is not finished when the player receives their cards. You get to see your two cards, plus the first three community cards before you have the option of ‘calling’ and putting more chips in the pot. Obviously you will only fold when you have an absolutely horrible hand, and if you do fold you get of the hand at half the cost. If you call you must match your original wager. It is important to remember that there are two betting rounds in casino holdem, so don’t commit too many chips at the start.

Play casino holdem now at Cherry Red

Play Aggressive

Poker is a game of patience whereas casino poker is a game of quick thinking and fast decisions. The most common mistake players (especially those who play poker) can make at casino holdem is folding too often. Remember that you only have to beat the dealer and the dealer only has to get a low pair to qualify for the hand (this will vary but it’s normally between a pair of fours and eights). The player also has the advantage of seeing three of the dealer’s cards before they make their decision. Mathematically it is correct to fold about 18% of the time in casino holdem. Players should call after the flop if they have any of the following: any pair, any straight draw, four card flush, three card straight flush, any straight flush draw or even two over cards. If the board pairs it is normally a good idea to call, especially if you think you have higher cards than the dealer.

Follow these tips and you’ll be having more fun and more wins when playing casino holdem.

Online Slot Myths

Posted on 21 May 2011 by bwright | Casino Games

There are a lot of myths flying around the online slot world. Some people will tell you they have a fool proof system while others might try and let you know that winning at online slots is impossible. We take a look at some of the common online slot myths and set the record straight.

Myth 1 – You can’t hit the jackpot on the same machine twice

Many people believe that slot machines have some sought of in built mechanism that will only allow  a jackpot to go off once on a certain machine. Online slot machines use a computer microchip which generates several billion combinations the moment you spin the reels. What appears on the slot is completely random. If you spin up a jackpot, the odds of doing on the next spin are the same as they were when you spun up the jackpot on the first go.

Myth 2 – Casinos rig slot machines to pay during peak periods

There is a train of thought out there that casinos rig their machines to payout more often during peak periods such as weekend and public holidays. This is simply not true. Online casinos are carefully regulated and audited, often by independent companies. With the online casino industry so competitive it does not make sense for casinos to cheat players and risk market share.

Myth 3 – This machine is due to pay

If a machine hasn’t hit a win for some time, some players believe this is the perfect time to up the bet and chase a ‘due’ win. Remember that online slots are run by a random number generator so there is no guarantee that a machine will automatically turn around a run of losses.

Myth 4 – The casino can ‘tighten’ a machine if it goes on a winning run

Another common myth is that the casino can ‘tighten’ a machine at the click of a button if it begins to payout too much. This is pure non-sense. The pay rates of slot machines are governed by the makers of the slot, not the casino. If a casino wants to change the payout rate of a slot they need to ask the manufacturer to do so, and also get permission from the relevant gaming commission as all pay rates must be registered with the relevant gaming commission.

Myth 5 – The higher the denomination of machine, the higher the payouts.

It is indeed true that higher denomination machines pay out more often, the only problem is these payouts are smaller compared to the coin denomination. All slot machines are programmed with pay-out percentage. How you play will not alter this percentage.

It is important to remember that online slots have one of the highest payout rates of any form of online gambling. Not only is this why they are so popular, but it’s also why they are so fun.

Join Go Casino for all the newest slot games and you could receive a multi-deposit bonus of $20,000!

Funny Money at Go Casino

Posted on 19 May 2011 by bwright | Casino Games

Funny Money is a brand new mobster themed slot, available at Go Casino

You’ll feel like Al Capone as you sit down with the boss, find the girl, avoid the police and all the while try and collect cash, cars and tommy guns.

The Funny Money slot is a 25 pay line slot with a maximum coin value of $2.00.

Coin values in this game vary from $0.01 to $2.00, but there is a lot more range, so while $50, is the most you can spin, there are many options below that, which makes the perfect game for the low-moderate spender.

There are two features that can be triggered in this online slot game, one revolves around the boss symbol, the other the secret club symbol.

The boss symbol will appear on reels 2,3 and 4 and will substitute for all symbols. If you are lucky enough to spin up the boss symbol on reels 2,3 and 4 you will trigger the ‘Boss Man Bonus Feature’

In the ‘Boss Man’s Feature’ there are nine stacks of cash on the table. All the player has to do is select four of those stacks, and they pocket the winnings. But beware, some of the bosses stacks are very low.

The other feature in this game is the free games feature which will be triggered by the Club Door symbol.

If you are lucky enough to spin up three of the Club Door symbols you will be rewarded with ten free games.

The maximum jackpot on the Funny Money slot is 8000 coins. This will be triggered of the player can spin up five of the lovely lady symbols.

There’s nothing funny about all the money you can win on this new and exciting online slot.

Join Go Casino now and you will be eligible for a multi-deposit bonus of up to $20,000.
