Casino bonuses: Jackpots In Online Casinos. Part One.

Whatever the gamblers might be claiming about their wish of mere having good time in casino and about skirmish of wits in the name of the game, still absolute majority is attracted by the opportunity to win plenty of money putting up a little. There is unlikely a gambler who does not dream of winning thousands or even millions, betting a few coins. Progressive jackpots are created just for such category of gamblers.

Initially the term “jackpot” referred to poker, according to one of its rules – the parlays to the pot increased, if none of the players collected at least a couple of jacks (the word originated from English words jack and pot). Now the word “jackpot” is often accompanied by the word “progressive” which means accumulation of a prize in the game until certain terms of this jackpot are fulfilled. A certain share of all the bets forms the jackpot, as a rule the share is not that big – basis points, but the probability to win the jackpot is very small, approximately 1 to 10000 and perhaps even 1 to several millions and as a result quite a considerable sum of money is accumulated.

Gambling Secrets

Yes, there ARE a few gambling secrets that can help you beat the casino. In the nine years I worked at the Leelanau Sands Casino near Suttons Bay, Michigan, I saw a lot of hopeful schemes and ideas. Some of them even worked. Here are a couple examples.

Card Counting Secrets

Card counting is a technique for beating the house at the blackjack tables. If the deck is “rich” enough in face cards (10,J,Q,K), the odds tilt slightly in favor of the player. This has been proven statistically. The idea then, is to monitor the cards as they come out, and when the deck has many face cards left in it, bet more. If you bet less when the house has the edge, and more when you do, you can make money in the long run.

Getting Paid By the Casinos to Play

Many casinos around the country are feeling the effects of smoking bans. Many casinos have seen their profits drop as regular gamblers go to casinos on states with no smoking ban. In an attempt to bring customers back the casinos are giving players some amazing comps from the casinos, and here is what you can do to get your piece of that pie.

Get better treatment by online casinos

Want to get better treatment than the next person? You have made a wise choice to choose your online casino from a third party gambling website instead of just typing in the name of the casino or finding it through a search engine for the same reason that a large business gets a discount price on better seats at a ballgame, or for the same reason a celebrity eats and drinks free at an establishment if they are willing to be cordial towards the patrons. They bring in more business so they are naturally going to be treated a little better than the single person arriving to buy a ticket at the gate or a meal at dinner time.

If you’ve already got them to drive to the place and walk up to the ticket booth with money in hand, it is unlikely they are going to turn around and leave before paying the price to enter. This is not to say it is okay to mistreat these customers but rather to point out that unscrupulous online casinos seldom have a blanket policy of cheating every player the same. Oops!, did I say cheating? I meant treating every player the same. The smart ones are very careful about choosing their battles and they almost always involve large sums of money and a player who has little or no backing and a guaranteed sad story which may or may not be true. Since that player joined the casino through a search engine and not a portal, there is nobody with a financial concern the player gets treated right past the generic outlook of third-party gambling websites who are actively on the watch for casinos not treating players fairly (to remove them from their list) and they wouldn’t notice said injustice because these situations usually require investigation that can take days worth of time. If the player didn’t sign up through a third-party gambling website then there isn’t anybody with a deep enough investment in the matter to warrant spending the time to find out. It remains the player’s word against the casino. The player loses in the eyes of the majority at least until more come forward and make the same claim.
