Tips to increase your winnings at Roulette

Since roulette can be played at practically every online or land-based casino, we can say that it is one of the most common gambling games. Besides plenty of luck, you will also need to use some strategies to increase your winnings playing this game. Learning how to control yourself is very important, especially when you know that you are out of luck in a particular day.


Regardless if you play online or in the real world, you can always use these tips to increase your chances of winning:

–          Always remember that roulette is a gambling game that should be played mostly for fun, so don`t view it as a job.

–          You have to go over all the rules and regulations of a particular casino site before you decide to play online. You should create real money accounts only on legitimate websites.

–          You should also check the authenticity of a particular website when you are playing online.

–          Don`t go over the limit that you have prepared for a particular day in case you are losing.

–          Set up an amount of money that you know you can afford playing with in a particular day.

–          You have to learn the basics of the game before starting to play for real money. Don`t forget the fact that you will need to gain experience to win at this game.

–          Another great tip would be to place small bets on every spin.

–          Remember that you can always come back and play the game another day in case you are having a bad day. Arrange your money in such a manner as to play a couple of days in a row.

–          You will have to be completely sober when you are playing this gambling game, since alcohol can influence your decisions during the play.

A basic strategy that you can use is the reverse Martingale, which consists on doubling your bet when winning.


Early days of the WSOP

In the late 80s poker was not very popular and was only played in casinos. There were only 50 poker rooms in Las Vegas. Poker was slowly becoming less and less popular until Benny Binion, owner of the Binion Horseshoe casino created the World Series of Poker. His main aim was to unite all the best poker players in the world at the highest stakes to create a World Champion of poker every year. Before the World Series started there was another tournament created by Tom Moore (owner of the Holiday Casino) and Vic Vickery, a very passionate poker player: Texas Gambler reunion. The players here were the same found at the felt of the first WSOP in 1970: Doyle Brunson, Amarillo Slim, Johnny Moss, Puggy Pearson and Benny Binion himself.

Johnny Moss

There were 28 players who participated in the very first WSOP and it was played as a cash game, with Johnny Moss victorious. In 1971 the event became a No Limit Hold’em freezout with a $5,000 buy in, with only 6 players participating, and Johnny Moss defended his crown and took down $30k in prize money for his efforts. In 1972 the buy in became $10k and a second event was added, Five Card Stud. Today there are over 55 events…. CBS was the first broadcaster interested in showing the WSOP and started broadcasting it in 1973. For the 7th World Series, the bracelets handed out to the winners were solid gold and had a value of around $500.

Up until 1977 the winner of the main event won all the money in play, but 1978 was the first year in which the prize pool was split between the top 5 players. In 1979 Barbara Fleet was the first woman brave enough to compete in the most prestigious poker tournament in the world and in this same year Hal Fowler became the first ever amateur to win the event, beating Bobby Hoff heads up and putting shame on all the poker pros.

Poker on the up – 80s:

In the 80s the world of poker took 2 major turns, the first was Stu Ungar’s win of the 1980 WSOP main event and the second because the WSOP started being broadcast on national television by the NBC network in 1981. Eric Dache in the very same year thought of the satellite tournament concept, which is how most players qualify for major events nowadays. The invention of satellites was the turning point in the globalisation of poker. It meant that the world of poker was opened publically. Two years later Tom Mcevoy was the first satellite winner to win the main event. In 1990 Mansour Matloubi was the first non-American to win the WSOP main event. He opened the door to the likes of Mortensen and Joe Hachem, who later went on to triumph in 2001 and 2005.

A spectacular explosion:

From the year of 1991 the winner of the WSOP main event was to become a millionaire. It took the attention of media giant ESPN and they invented the pocket cams, which meant that the players cards could be seen. The ‘big bang’ of the poker world came when Chris Moneymaker won the world series of poker after qualifying through a $39 satellite on He beat 838 players and was heads up with the legend, Sam Farha. He had a chip deficit to his opponent but pulled off one of the biggest bluffs in WSOP history, subsequently beating Farha and collecting $2,500,000!

Chris Moneymaker beating Sammy Farha

This was the boom that poker needed, as next year 2576 players came to compete, a 205% increase on the 839 the previous year. In 2005 Harrah’s Entertainment gained the rights to the WSOP and all the events nowadays take place in the Rio All Suite Hotel and Casino. This proved to be a great idea as the capacity of the Amazon room is a lot bigger. In 2006 Jamie Gold then took down the biggest prize ever in tournament poker, $12,000,000 for beating 8773 hopefuls in one of the most controversial main events to date.

Stack up a small bankroll with Five Power Slots

Small bankroll? Need to top up your bankroll without going bust? Then you need these five “power slots”. Now, you might wonder why we would call them power slots but once you start playing you’ll see what we saw the first time we played: these are all great slots that can give us great wins without going over budget.

Dreaming of a big bankroll won’t get you anywhere unless you’re ready and willing to take action towards this goal. What could you do with a bigger bankroll, especially at a casino that doesn’t just offer slot games? You could ideally take your bankroll and play poker and do a lot better as a bigger stack than a smaller one. When you have more bankroll, you have more options. That’s all there is to it.

But let’s get down to business and reveal these five slots, hmm?

1. Lost Island

Lost Island slot

You have so many ways to bet on this slot game that you’re not going to go over budget. Lost Island is a NetEnt slot and they made sure that the small stack is just as welcome as the high roller. The theme of Lost Island is all about mystery: why is one half of the island in the light and the other half bathed in nothing but darkness? The music is so eerie that we had to turn it off, but you might not have that problem.

The best way to check out the game would be to stick to the letter symbol hunting: if you find even just three symbols, you’ll get 5 times your stake. But if you find all five of the tribal drums, this is worth 350 times your stake. Even with a small bankroll, this can be a lot of money.

The wild symbols will help boost your winnings, and even help you make paying lines that would otherwise have gone cold. Look out for those scatter symbols because you get free spins and those will help you make money without digging into your bankroll.

2. The Wish Master

The Wish Master slot

Wouldn’t it be nice to have a genie that could fulfill your ever wish? That doesn’t happen in real life. But what if you had a slot that could answer your dreams of a bigger bankroll? The Wish Master can deliver this. It’s a five reel and twenty payline slot that lets you get immersed in the action.

The genie isn’t the Disney version — we thought he was a little ominous. Play this slot and tell us what you think.

But back to the features, you’ve got expanding wilds that help you make matches and you also have scatter symbols. If you’ve played a lot of slot games, you should know what those scatter symbols do. But they do lead to free spins here, and you can trigger those again and again.

3. Moolah Monsters

Moolah Monsters slot

Do you want a chance at a 10,000 coin jackpot? Then you definitely need to check out Moolah Monsters. This is an obvious Halloween theme, but the focus is more on a cartoonish scare than a serious one. All of the usual slot features are there, including a great bonus round. You get three pumpkin symbols to pick from. You only have 20 seconds to pick one. Each one has a different prize for you in the form of free spins. There are scatters and wilds as well, both designed to help you raise your bankroll up.

4. Dazzle Me

Dazzle Me slot

High graphics? Check. Lots of action? Check. If you’re into the glitter and glam, Dazzle Me has plenty of it for you to check out. The minimum betting level is also really low, giving everyone a chance to check this one out. You’ve got to put up just 0.2 coins for a single spin. This slot is also mobile friendly, making it a really popular choice amongst gamblers.

We’ve talked about Dazzle Me before, but we really needed to highlight it again for small stacks. Even though there are only 20 paylines, it’s the features that make this slot game stand out. You get the Dashing Wild Reels bonus, and this is a bonus game that comes up quite often. You get a lot of free spins in this game, along with a feature that’s called Linked Reels. Two reels that are right next to each other will have matching symbols from top to bottom. This explodes your profits without having to pour in a ton of cash.

5. Fisticuffs

Fisticuffs slot

Have you ever dreamed about getting into a ring against another boxer? What about someone that you really didn’t like? OK, we might be stretching a bit…but we really did like Fisticuffs. This takes us back to the early 20th century, where boxing was a completely different animal.

This is only a ten payline slot but you get three different types of slots. The minimum betting option is also low, making it a great option for small players.

Straight Wilds, Diagonal Wilds, and regular wilds all populate this game. Pay attention to this, because the two “Wilds” will punch each other and give you extra prizes. Check this one out!

There are plenty of great slot games out there but we definitely want to bring these five slots to your attention. As long as you’re thinking about how to expand your bankroll slowly you shouldn’t have any problem at all getting what you really need to get done.

Jacks or Better Advanced Rules and Strategies

I realize a lot of gamblers enjoy going to a video poker room and simply play for a set amount of time. I actually do this with my son when he wants to play video games. I tell him I’ll play for an hour, but then I have to do some other stuff…like give you more gambling knowledge.  Whether I’m in a video poker room, playing slots, or sitting at a blackjack table, I always set a time limit.

Time limits are one of the best ways to keep your bankroll growing over the long term. It’s almost like building a 401k portfolio, when you put 50% of your money in something long-term. These don’t provide huge returns, but they are good ways to ensure you will have money when it’s time to retire. It’s a good idea to take this approach to gambling. It will allow you to play more often, minimize your losses, and grow your bankroll over the long haul.

However, there are times when you want to take a little more advanced approach than the basic or intermediate strategies. I want to show you a couple of those options, but with the mindset of being efficient with your decision making. Continue reading “Jacks or Better Advanced Rules and Strategies”
