Commandments of bonus-hunting

In the world of online casinos and online gambling there is such a notion as bonus hunting and bonus hunter. Internet casino bonuses really deserve to hunt them. It often happens that bonus hunters play online bonuses not only by themselves but for all their friends and relatives, increasing in such way their profit much. Behavior manner of bonus hunter can be describe the following way:

  1. Looking for  suitable internet casino with maximal big bonus and minimal wager;
  2. Fulfillment of wager in games with minimal casino’s advantage (it is blackjack mainly);
  3. Withdrawing of money from internet casino immediately after fulfilling of minimal wager requerments;
  4. Repeating of 1-3 items up to you’ll be drive out from all online casinos.

There are some rules of behavior, which are insistently recommended to follow, if you want to win much.

1. Get maximal profit of online casino bonuses.

Always remember that in the case when internet casino offer for example 100% bonus for first deposit to 200$, and you make only 100$ deposit, then you not only don’t get 100$ bonus. No, you lose this 100$, which you can get for free absolutely – only for double deposit, than you’ve made.

If you don’t suffice money to get all 100% of offering bonus, just wait when you’ll have this missing money, and only after it make deposit, even it will happen sine week or month.

2. In casino play only blackjack.

Blackjack is the best online casino game, where game house’s advantage is minimal, so playing blackjack, for the same time you’ll lose less money than in any other game. Just learn the base strategy for game and play only according to it, no step to the side. Your intuition and forebodings will never beat inexorable game’s mathematics. Following the base strategy of blackjack you’ll minimize house’s advantage to 0,5%, meanwhile when playing any other strategy internet casino’s advantage can reach 1-3%!

I agree that blackjack can seem not as fascinating as poker for example or game machines with seven-digit progressive jackpot. However don’t yield to temptation if your case is earn but not entertain. Among other good internet casino games, where a house has acceptable advantage before player, the following can be mark out:

  • “Jacks or Better” video poker;
  • Baccarat;
  • Pay-go poker.

3. Losing in casino, don’t raise stakes.

If you use base strategy for fulfilling wager in blackjack, be successive in your game – play on minimal stake till wager’s end. As there is no guaranty that after stakes raising winning period will come. In any game winning and losing series happen, and it’s impossible to foretell them. Not to experience yourself drama effect of “roller coasters” which your bank will jump on, just stick to Base strategy and minimal stakes.

4. Be disciplined when playing in casino.

The task bonus hunter is first to fulfill wager requirements and withdraw bonus, or its’ part, from online casino. The best way for it is to play blackjack or stick to base strategy. However not everyone is able to play 6-8 hours on 1$ stakes. Bores, want to have sharp sense, want to finish with wager finally! All these temptations are the worse enemies for bonus-hunter. Of course, there will be cases when yielding to temptation and beginning to stake 50-100$, you’ll win really much. However, I insure you, there will be much more cases when you’ll lose.

I’ll mark here too often happens situation of “last dollar”. Let us suppose that you have win 498$. I’m sure that you wouldn’t like this sum. So, what would you do? You will, like any other player, try to bring gain to round 500$ and more… If you could know how much money was lose (including me) with many people in pursuit for this “last dollar”. Don’t be greedy – 1-2$ don’t have decisive significance. Let your gain be 498$, and not 500$. You must admit that it is better than full zero.

5.      Don’t play after you’ve asked money to withdraw.

One more way for online casino to catch your money is withdrawing of money with some late. Not everyone practices such procedure, but it can be meet really often. It happens that gains cash only since 5 days after you’ve made a request for withdrawing. Meanwhile management hopes that you’ll abolish request and will back to game.

You haven’t to do it because of one easy reason – remember, you have an advantage over casino only when you play bonus. When wager fulfilled already and bonus is filly yours (you have right to withdraw it from your account), since that moment you play on your money already, and advantage is situated in online casino’s side now. That is of course by no means advantageous for you – you’ll lose with rather long playing.

Of course, during your next visit to this (or another, it doesn’t matter)casino you can lose all the same, but in this case losing will delay to next time, and now you’ll get moral satisfaction from current winning.

6.      Be vigilant when playing casino.

In operating with internet casino, you always have to be on the alert. Before each deposit in any new game institution check carefully “Terms&Conditions” section. Even if you’ve played here recently – it is always necessary to check changes in rules! You of course don’t want to face with the situation, when new rules like wager size 100 x bonus or impossibility to withdraw earnings to plastic card will become absolute surprise for you, however everything was not so scares only yesterday. According to rules of any internet casino they haven’t to inform you at all about any change of Terms&Condition section, so it is always better to be overcautious.

However there are pleasant surprises in online casino always. For example all casinos regularly make post delivery with current promo-offers for existing players – watch over them, sometimes there can be hide real brilliants! And in addition to all – it happens that some online casinos suddenly add to your empty account small without deposit casino bonuses, to make you back for game. It is worth to use such offers too.

7.      Know your rights and don’t be shy to use them.

In the case of come misunderstanding of your side or of the side of online casino, you can always use services of free support for regulation of situation. You can call free international phone, send e-mail, talk in chat on institution’s site.

On any interested question, you doubt in – always address for help to internet casino\s support service. You questions can concern bonuses, wager, deposit, earnings withdraw and anything other what concerns to internet casino’s working.

It is rather easy to win in online casino if to stick to these simple rules and settings. However, remember that these rules wrote for bonus-hunting – action, where there is no place for entertainment.

If your case in casino is rest exactly, you can stick only to some of these rules, or even ignore them. Anyway, I wish you good luck in this exciting business – conquering of internet casino!

Swindlers in casino gambling

If to speak about game business, swindling theme in this sphere suggests itself. We decided to try learn reader how to beat casino or at least use some casino`s features for their freebie.

Players’ deception in casino. The most spread way is “rupture”. Any just opened casino is trying for “rupture” and four men usually go there. Two of them sit for poker table; one is near them like interested viewer and fourth walking the hall like strolling customer. Casino poker has its name conditionally only. Bluffing, suppressing with money, making cards exchange is impossible here and dealer`s combination compares with player`s combination. Swindlers attract with that you can take cards in hands (in contrast to Black Jack). In some moment when stake is rather high strolling swindler attract the attention of observing for two-three tables manager. At the same time gang member observing the game distracts dealer in some way. We haven’t to forget about cams (in casinos where they exist). In fraud moment game has to go on few tables which disperse the attention of controller sitting near monitors. If everything will make synchronously and clear two players have time to interchange cards with magician`s adroitness in such way that one of them composes strong combination in hands.

According to our information “rupture” brigade beat “Metropol” casino on some ten thousand dollars. And swindlers` qualification was so high at that, that only game record viewing in slowly regime gave possibility to see card interchange moment. Swindlers usually appeared after one-two days to see if they were figured out. In the case of “Metropol” they were admitted to playing but were put under strict control and tried to take back maximal part of recent loss.

The second spread swindling is “guest” chip cashing. In each solid casino regular customer can expect to some free chips which are given by casino for drawing into game. In many casinos of the world this practice introduce for all clients absolutely. In Russia casino “Lux” tried to answer world standards. Here client got five more chips from casino besides chips paid as entrance fee. It have to be say that this chips can`t be cash straight – they have to visit playing table by all means. Soon one “jack of all trades” became a frequent visitor in “Lux” who brought with him 5-6 men, paid for their entry and then company made roulette stakes which ensure the zero result (for example half of them staked on black and half on red). Chips from the table were back weighty already and profit was guest chips which were not paid initially. Sometimes casino club members are given to guest chips cashing but considered unpresentable generally.

One more roulette swindling consists in having time to move chip on wined number in the moment when ball stops and dealer said “There is no more stakes!” Recently group of Italians who were engaged in these was literally moved from Moscow. They went by proved scheme with attraction of croupier`s and manager`s attention, and as a rule had time to stake on winning square`s border a pile of chips at that, where the lowest one was the biggest. Dealer moved a pile of small chips to him with spittle and the biggest stayed on necessary field. In casino it is not done to argue in such cases: chip stands, so you have to pay.

“Group with fingerings” is remembered also, which was bombed Moscow casinos about two years ago. They wearied rings allowing marking cards (when playing poker) with almost invisible strokes. It is possible to fight against them only with organizational ways that`s why nowadays in solid casinos dealer stands on one table 20 minutes and man coming to his replace open new pack.

Finally whole swindling group connects with personnel. Peculiarity of Russian casinos is that there is a lot of young and pretty girls work as dealers (in Europe they are elderly solid men as a rule). From time to time clients succeed to involve one of them to joint activity for turning over this game institution. They fight against it also systemic: “looking for tables” watches dealers, shift manager watches them, general manager watches managers, director watches the last and one more man sits in viewing room above them all, whose task is to detect any suspicious activity.

Freebie in casino. In casinos (not everywhere but in many of them) all drinks and appetizers are given players for free. If you`ll contrive to order alcohol and walking near playing tables leisurely without attracting attention for you, sometimes stop and make a show of you or your good friends are playing, you can drink and get a bite good.

In many casinos for clients` (players) comfort there are currency exchanges. For players attraction sometimes buying rate is equal with sale dollar rate and conforms to the lowest rate in the city as a rule. If you want to buy currency, that way is one of the most profitable.

Endnote: all “freebies” are better to use when big crowds of players gather in casino.

Baccarat card game

Table game baccarat is one of the oldest European gamble games. The provenance of baccarat doesn`t ascertain up to now, it is France or Italy.

The main task in baccarat game is to collect card combination with 9 points or as close as possible to this number, that is maximal quantity of points in this game. Points counts in this way: ace is 1 point, card from two to nine at face value, king, queen, jack and ten give 0 points. Ten points can`t be collect because by the game rules if you collect 10 points or more, 10 points have to be subtracted of this sum. For example ace and ten will give 1 point.

The one aspect of baccarat game which can seems somewhat tangled is rules concerning third card`s drawing. Third card rule detects when player and/or banker is given with third card automatically when playing baccarat. If player`s cards have from 0 to 5 points he gets the third card, if more than 5 points collected he doesn`t. If banker collected from 0 to 4 points he gets the third card, if more than 5 – he doesn`t, if he has 5 points the decision about third card getting makes depending on player`s cards. Finally wins the stake on player who has collected more points. If banker and player have the same quantity of points, stakes on player and banker restores, the stake “Draw” wins. Stake on player pays 1 to 1, stake on banker pays 1 to 1 minus 5% commission, stake on draw pays 9 to 1 (or 8 to 1).

Like roulette, baccarat attracted admirers of different game strategies long since. As stakes choice in baccarat is scanty in contrast to roulette, the most of strategies stipulated easy stakes size changing depending on previous game results. There is no without risk of loss strategy, like in roulette game indeed. Or rather it can be says that optimal strategy is to stake on banker as casino`s advantage for bank staking is 1,06%, it is a little higher when player staking – 1,24% and 7-14% on draw.

Good luck in baccarat playing!
