New Year – The Future is Here

Happy New Year everyone!

We are now in 2017  and we are actually living the future! If you are born before 1990 then you will definitely remember watching sci fi movies starting with a scene from 2020…the future where everything was robotic, cars were flying etc…Well we are almost there, technology has evolved tremendously in the last 2 decades with driver-less cars and robots are on their way and so are flying cars. We are not there yet but getting closer and closer!

The future is here for online casinos as well

Like every other sector that has evolved the last couple of decades so did casino games. I mean i remember back in the days when the only way I could play a game of blackjack was to take the bus and head to a local brick and mortar casino. Even then there was only one table and had to wait ages to tale a seat. Things have changed now! There are 10 land based casinos in my city and if i want i don’t even have to go there to play. I can just play online!

Thats how technology has helped us make our entertainment a bit easier! No hassle, home entertainment! No need to put my jeans on, I can just chill on my sofa, watch football and at the same time play a few hands of poker or Blackjack! But technology has evolved even more…and not only I can now play roulette, blackjack, poker etc from the comfort of my own house, i can also play with live dealers as well, just like a real brick and mortar casino! More and more games ( almost every game actually) are now available to play with live dealers which makes it even better!

 

So lets see what the future holds for us! Maybe the virtual reality casinos will become the next norm thing ( yeah why not? Could anyone image that you will be able to play with live dealers from your home 20 years ago?). Maybe we could just bring the virtuar reality in our houses with a full casino floor around us, with or without a VR headset!

Lets see then! Looking forward to it!

Happy New Year again!

My casino bankroll strategy

So  i have already told you that i have worked for online casinos for more than 15 years. Thats more or less the amount of time I play casino games online as well. Before that i used to go to my local casino maybe once every 2-3 months and most of the times it wassnt even planned. I still do that but I play mostly online. After all these years i found a way that I can make sure I am not losing in the long term – at least in theory- ;).

I noticed that most of the people that were losing in the long term where doing the same mistake. Deposit more than what they withdraw. So i figured out I can try not to do this with this strategy.  It’s what i call take the money and run bankroll strategy!

Take the money and run bankroll strategy

You are probably wondering by now…what the fuck is he talking about?! Let me make something clear first. I gamble for fun and always with moeny that I have spare. So instead of going to the shops and spending £100 on clothes every month ( I still do that some months) or go out 3 times a week and spend £100 on booze (at least!) I prefer to balance things a bit. So a bit of shopping , a bit of booze, a bit of women 😉 and a bit of gambling!

The money and run bankroll strategy is quite simple and is based on the principle that when you win, you need to take the money and enjoy your winnings. What most casino players do is : they make x amount of money on Friday, withdraw their winnings, then next week they go back to that casino and deposit their winnings and sometimes end up losing it. So total profit after 1 week ? Usually 0 if not minus…

So here is my strategy, alwasy based on the fact that you play for fun and for pure enaertainment.

  • Set deposit limits on every online casino that you have. The amount depends on what you feel confortable.
  • When you win or when you are done for the day and have a positive balance, withdraw the money from your account!
  • When you want to play again you can play on another online casino but up to the limit that you have set

So, now some of yo are thinking…doesnt make sense, tihs guy is a looney. What would i set deposit limits when i can deposit in another casino? Well thats the trick. HYou can only deposit an x amount which means that you might not be able ot deposit as much as you won the week before.

I found myself in situation of winning £300 one day from a £50 deposit and then byt the end of the week i had to deposit another £50 to continue playing. Thats because i was feeling generous and because i was thinking that i am playing with my winnings anyway.As I said I gamble as a hobby, however its alwasy satisfying when you know that your hobby makes you £200-£300 extra a month!

So that’s my take the money and run bankroll strategy, i hoep you find it usefull and try it at least!

 

My favourite casino games

This is the first post on this blog so I will just list the casino games that I like playing the most. As i have already mentioned in my about me page, I like playing almost every casino game as gambling is a hobby for me and a way I can entertain myself.  However, there are some games that I enjoy playing the most.

Ok lets have a look at my favourite casino games list

Blackjack

  blackjack-1509566 It is my favourite casino game despite the fact that you cant win big unless you bet a lot but this is the case with almost every other casino card game. Blackjack is definitely one of the most popular casino games anyway so its not a surprise that is on the top of my list. Maybe its the low house edge that you can get if you follow basic strategy, maybe its the attractive live dealers online 😉 😉 but i always end up spending most of my time playing that game. Unless I have a very bad day, I usually win or lose a small amount so at the end of the day, i enjoy my time. I always play live blackjack, its much better than the computerised version – who plays the computerised version in our days anyway!

Slots

gladiator-slot-game-bonus-roundI know that this is a controversial one and possible a casino game that has the worst house edge…but if you win big , you win big! I have landed a few big wins and enter the jackpot rounds 3 times until now but didn’t win any significant life changing amounts. I think the most was around £500 on a marvel jackpot. Slot games can be proved very dangerous for your bankroll if you dont play according to what you can afford. So my advise is play according to your bankroll and when you hit a big win or a bonus round…go to another game 😉

Poker

online-poker-2I think most casino players love poker and that’s not a surprise because poker is not so much a game of like – like roulette for example – but a game of luck , strategy and also psychology. Poker has become more popular especially in the last 10 years because of the broadcasting of WSOP and other major tournaments. People could then see how big players play and how much they are winning simply by playing a card game and thought…i can do that as well. That’s exactly what I though as well despite the fact that I have never won any major amount ad I have tried cash games, sit and go , tournaments etc…nothing…but for a weird reason I still love playing this game!

Roulette

cards-1066386__180I couldn’t leave roulette out of that list not because its so popular but because I always have a sneaky bet on roulette. Sometimes I just go red or black to double my money and go play slots…a strategy which doesn’t always pay of course… I have tried so of the roulette systems but I haven’t succeeded because i didn’t have the patience or the bankroll some times so now i just play for fun with small amounts

Live Ultimate Texas Hold’em

playing-cards-1010607_640This is one of my recent favourites. Apparently this game is popular in Las Vegas and now its also available online. I think its a great game and i really enjoy playing this with love dealers. Not all online casinos have this game at the moment but I have accounts with more than 10 online casinos so its easy for me to find it!

So these are my top casino games, I hope you enjoyed reading this post and I will update you next week with my first update of my gambling journal
