How To Sign Up at a Casino

Thank you for joining me today as we make history and sign you up at the online casino of your choice. And not to worry, it’s so easy and straightforward, there’s no way you can screw it up. That is, unless you’re my mom. Hey mom!

Step One: find the casino that’s right for you. Some casinos, like Betway, are “instant play” – meaning you don’t need to install software on your computer to play them. Rather, you play completely online. To sign up for these types of casinos, click on the button on the homepage that says either “Sign Up”, “Open Account” or “Play Now.” The site will prompt you to create an account with a unique username, password, valid email address, personal and contact details and preferred language and currency. Then you’ll be asked to accept the Casino policy, but make sure to stay awake reading those Terms and Conditions before you do. Then hit the “Register” button and you have yourself an account! Congrats, I applaud you.

Now, depending on the casino, you can play for fun. Or if you want to hop right on the gravy train, you can place some bets! But, as they say, you need money to make money. So first things first: deposit money into your account. Click the Account tab or Bank button, and then the option to “make a deposit” that follows. You’ll be sent to a secure page, where you can safely choose and pay through your preferred payment option. Your account balance should adjust instantly. Online casinos that are not instant play require you to download their free software. To play these, click the “Download Software” or “Download Casino” button on the casino home page. Then click on the .exe file that appears at the bottom left of your browser and choose “run” when Windows prompts you if you want to run the file. Finally, hit the “install” button, sign into the software with your username and password and you’re good to go. That is IT.

Choices in Keno

Keno is a game that is less difficult to understand and this is one of the reasons for which the game is highly acclaimed all over the world and played at every corner of the world on a regular basis. The first thing that a player needs to do is to make a choice of ten or twenty numbers from one to eighty. However, similar to other games, the players should be provided with some tips for a game of keno that will put them into action. In this context, it is to be remembered by the players of keno, even before the game has actually started, that they are sufficiently aware about the characteristics, mechanism and the choice of words that are a vital part of this game. Once the player is familiar with these aspects, playing this game would be incredibly easier much beyond the expectations.

In a game of Keno, the player can often hear the word ‘race’ that is a frequently used word literally of course, but for the game of Keno, it is meant to specify a one round of game. In fact, in some of the casinos, there are various races that materialize on each day.

Perhaps, there are not many differences in the mechanism of playing and to draw the winning number, but there is one actually and that is the money that is in stake and this is how we are able to differentiate one game of keno from the other. If you are intending to play a game of keno online, you should try to visit as many sites as possible before deciding on playing the game and the preference should be to select those sites that are offering better opportunities to earn more. Once a set of numbers are decided by the players, it can be reused several times in each and every game of Keno.

Thanks for reading this article, I hope, you have learned something new. I really enjoy sharing my passion with you. Be sure to check other articles about games and casino. Stay tuned for new materials. Be responsive with your game and your money, Good luck, and don`t forget to have fun!

Bankroll scenarios

You might play at a smaller or larger amount than $1 per spin, or you might spin at a lower or higher rate than 600 per hour, and as is always the case in gambling, even though the machine might be set at 90% return, you could win or lose at much different ratio, remember that 90% return is based on large numbers, in the short run of a couple of hours or even a couple of days it might return zero, of course you could also hit a jackpot or two, that’s why it is gambling.

Also if after doing the above calculation for your style of play you find it more money than you can afford, then adjust. You can adjust the amount per spin, numbers of spins per hour, playing time, etc.

You can also back into this calculation, by saying something like I am comfortable with $1000 total bankroll and I want to play $2 per spin at 400 spins per hour, how long can I play.

Using this scenario you would multiply 400 spins times $2 for $800 in total play per hour, with a 90% return of around $720 or about $80 per hour, so with $1000 bankroll you could play those one-armed bandits for twelve and a half hours, or about four hours per day.

Or you might say I want to play four hours per day. In this scenario you would divide $1000 by 12 (four hours times three days), the result would be approximately $80 per hour, so you could play $2 per spin at 400 spins per hour.

There are many way to calculate your bankroll, these are just a few, but proper session planning and bankroll budgeting in advance will make your stay more enjoyable and less likely to find you broke on the first night!

Now I know I started this blog off by saying you take you money to win, not lose. Then I calculated how much to take based on losing, so you are asking, why the contradiction?

Well, in the above formula the amount of your bankroll is based on playing time vs. house percentage, over the long run this will probably play out, but over the short run of a few hours or a few days anything is possible, both losing streaks and winning streaks. As a proponent of the “Law of Attraction”, I am taking my money to attract one of those winning streaks.

Know your play. Know your way.

How Did Casino Royale Happen?

The original novel was written by Ian Fleming and was published in 1953. The book was a great success in the UK, resulting in the series of books that followed and Fleming sold the film and television rights to this first book early. The first of the adaptation to hit the screen was in 1954. This television play starred Barry Nelson as Bond, although he was a CIA agent.

The rights to the other Bond films were picked by Harry Saltzman and Cubby Broccoli, who started the official film series with Dr No played by Sean Connery. The rights to Casino Royale were picked up meanwhile by Charles K. Feldman. He rejected the idea of making a film with Sean Connery and decided to make it a comedy, released in 1967. The film had David Niven, Peter Sellers and many others but it was a complete mish mash of ideas.

Meanwhile there a dispute continued between Eon, the producers of the Bond films, and Kevin McClory, who had been the producer of Thunderball and whose work on the story is acknowledged on the novels after he could take Fleming to court. McIlroy claimed the rights to produce a rival James Bond series, backed by Sony, who had by now owned the Casino Royale rights. He went to court several times, however, the lawsuit was thrown out and the rights of Casino Royale were sold to MGM, the studio that had backed Eon financially.

Casino Royale made it to the big screen in 2006, and the whole world went ‘Bond crazy’ again. Having Daniel Craig as 007 and Eva Green as Vesper Lynd, the film did prove to be a phenomenal success. Vesper Lynd was the best Bond girl in all years. In Casino Royale she wore an Algerian Love Knot given to her by her lover.Картинки по запросу Casino Royale

Casino Royale stands as an oddity when compared to the other James Bond films because of the way in which it was finally made to the screen in 2006. It was the first book of the series, written by Ian Fleming. However, the producers of the official James Bond series had been unable to secure the rights of it. The reason for this was because Fleming had sold the television and film rights of the book back in 1954 and when the remaining of the films rights was sold, they did not include Casino Royale.

The rights to the other Bond films were picked by Harry Saltzman and Cubby Broccoli, who started the official film series with Dr No played by Sean Connery. The rights to Casino Royale were picked up meanwhile by Charles K. Feldman. He rejected the idea of making a film with Sean Connery and decided to make it a comedy, released in 1967. The film had David Niven, Peter Sellers and many others but it was a complete mish mash of ideas.

Meanwhile there a dispute continued between Eon, the producers of the Bond films, and Kevin McClory, who had been the producer of Thunderball and whose work on the story is acknowledged on the novels after he could take Fleming to court. McIlroy claimed the rights to produce a rival James Bond series, backed by Sony, who had by now owned the Casino Royale rights. He went to court several times, however, the lawsuit was thrown out and the rights of Casino Royale were sold to MGM, the studio that had backed Eon financially.

Thus, even if an Algerian Love Knot didn’t appear in the novel, for a faithful adaptation of Casino Royale on the big screen it took a long time. Casino Royale made it to the big screen in 2006, and the whole world went ‘Bond crazy’ again. Having Daniel Craig as 007 and Eva Green as Vesper Lynd, the film did prove to be a phenomenal success.

 

WWE, WCW & ECW former wrestlers

As you can see wrestling is actually a very important part of my life as well as online casino gaming. The reason for that is because as a child of 6 years old my grandfather introduced it me to it. On Saturday’s this is what we did. It bonded us in a way that has NO description. And more than enough times when I watch wrestling I feel as though he is right here with me moaning, puffing, grunting and shouting to the TV “Knock him out!”

One of the things I love the most about wrestling is being able to talk to the many fans (or shall I say marks because the real fans are far and few) that follow sports entertainment. I also love it when I get the chance to meet and talk to some of the wrestlers. I will be working on a picture gallery shortly. But one of the biggest questions that comes up in conversation is “What ever happened to?”, “Where is he now?” or after finding out someone has been released or left (after contracts expires or quitting) “Will they ever show up again?”

Wrestling is a very demanding sport both mentally & physically and in some of the things I have read most times you make little to nothing starting out. As I grow more and more into Jab & Grapple I will do my best to provide information on those often asked questions which bring me to today’s topic.

After Vince McMahon purchased WCW from Ted Turner there was a major buzz on who he would keep and who he would let go. And the same rule applied to ECW after they disbanded. At least that the PC word for it. The truth is they could not compete with WWE when it came to drawing crowds and making money.

Here are some of the former WWE, WCW & ECW stars that are now with TNA Wrestling:

  1. WWE’s Road Dogg Jesse James-Now known as “BG James
  2. WWE’s Christian-Now known as “Christian Cage
  3. WWE’s Gail Kim
  4. WWE’s Jeff Hardy
  5. WWE’s/WCW’s Jeff Jarrett-Kept his name and runs TNA
  6. Jerry Lynn formerly of WWE/WCW/ECW
  7. Kevin Nash formerly of WWE/WCW
  8. WWE’s Badd Ass Billy Gunn-Now known as “Kip James
  9. WCW’s Primtime Elix Skipper
  10. ECW’s/WWE’s Rhino
  11. WWE’s Kid Quick-Now know as Ron “The Truth” Killings
  12. ECW’s Sabu
  13. Known in WWE as “The Kid”, “The Kamikaze Kid”, “The 1-2-3 Kid” & “X-Pac” and in WCW as “Syxx”-Now known as Sean Waltman
  14. WCW’s/WWE’s Shannon Moore-Now Known as “The Prince of Punk Shannon Moore
  15. ECW’s Simon Diamond
  16. WCW’s Sting (What a surprise)
  17. Last but not least ECW’s/WWE’s Dudley Boys-Now known as Brother Devon & Brother RayTeam 3D

Wow what a lineup. Eventually I will be doing more on TNA Wrestling but this is just a small glimpse at the after life of some of wrestling well knowns after life in the WWE & WCW.

WrestleMania 22 predictions Part 3

Mr. McMahon vs. Shawn Michaels in a No Holds Barred Match

For all the MARKS out there yes Shawn should win considering everything Vince has done to him. And honestly just based upon crowd POPS he should win. But I can remember early Shawn and he is becoming a shadow of what he once was. This is not a personal attack on him the person but it is a harsh dose of reality when it comes to the countdown of a wrestlers “in ring” participation. Shawn has heart for continuing to wrestle with known back problems. At one point his career was threatened due to the severity of his back injuries. But GOD is good and saw it fit for him to return. But since coming back I noticed he is not as agile as he was before the injury, he moves a slight bit more gingerly in the ring, and if I can be honest he takes way too many beatings. He has put over lots of wrestlers since coming back and that is a good mark of a PROFESSIONAL WRESTLER. But the only way he will pull this off is if Vince thinks he should win. Prediction: Vince McMahon

World Heavyweight Champion Kurt Angle vs. Rey Mysterio vs. Randy Orton

All 3 wrestlers are great in the ring and all have a style of their own. When it comes to great acrobatic Lucha Libre moves Rey Mysterio represents well. Randy Orton is definitely today’s wrestler with stamina, great defensive moves, yet with a ole’ school flavor. I mean being a 2nd or 3rd generation wrestler why should he? And Mr. Kurt Angle…The technical wrestler’s, wrestler. I have been a fan of his since he came to the WWE. He has not disappointed me at all in the ring. This match will possess a lot of thrills. But I do see Angle winning this one. Prediction: Kurt Angle

John Cena vs. Triple H for the WWE Championship

Rock & Roll versus Hip-Hop, New School versus Ole’ School. Okay here we go…My mind is looking a Triple H’s resume in the WWE. He has hed the title 10 times and has survived some of the most grueling matches. He is truly a “Cerebral Assassin” as he is called. He has the true skill of mentally throwing opponents off their game. Now I can’t go without saying this…Being Vince’s son-in-law and soon to be father of Stephani McMahon’s baby I think that will definitely be a factor. I say this because behind the scene and in front of the camera Vince looks out for those who are committed to him and the company. Triple H has been there when many others left. He carried the torch when there was no one else to do it. John Cena…the Hip-Hop wrestling thug. As much as will say he has skills & flow on the mic but as long as he has been in the WWE his ring skills have not sharpened. I am not say he can’t wrestle but there have been times I have been afraid watching him wrestle. He does possess a smashmouth type of style and maybe in a hardcore match it might come in handy but against Triple H??? He needs to be just a bit more technical. Prediction: Triple H

Do not be surprised if somewhere down the line Ric Flair challenges Triple H for the title.

WrestleMania 22 predictions Part 2

Undertaker vs. Mark Henry (Casket Match)

At 13-00 in his WrestleMania matches the Undertaker is probably a favorite to win. Yeah okay because he beat Yokozuna who was his biggest opponent does not really warrant him doing it this time. If I had to just logic for this match I would look at it this way…The Undertaker has gotten older. I mean for real it is expected. I applaud him for his run and even admire the fact he is well respected in the locker room but the younger cats are bringing it now. Mark Henry has had many runs with the WWE and in all of his runs “The World’s Strongest Man” has been the center of his image. Finally He has come back with a “Crash through the wall” type of style and having this match does something for his career. Mark is the younger guy in this. He may not be fast but between the two he just strikes me as being the stronger one. That alone says he should win but I do believe the hype around The Undertaker being 13-0 and him being the senior will be factors in him winning. Prediction: The Undertaker

Money in the Bank Ladder Match

This is a inter-promotional match that will consist of 3 Smackdown Superstars and 3 Raw Superstars. The Superstars representing Smackdown will be Bobby Lashley, Matt Hardy and Fit Finlay while representing Raw will be Shelton Benjamin (current Raw Intercontinental Champion), Rob Van Dam, and Ric Flair. Out of all 6 participants Matt Hardy & Rob Van Dam are seasoned Ladder Match veterans. If I am not mistaken this is Ric Flair’s second ladder match in his whole career. At his age I am not feeling much participation from him. Now when I say that I am saying I do not see him doing some of the “Off the ladder” moves that the other participants will try. I sense the same feeling for Lashley & Finlay also. Lashey being big as all outdoors but not as agile and Finlay like Flair being up in age does not give me a good feeling when it come to utilizing the ladder for moves. Benjamin I am feeling somewhat of willing to try a move. I do not recall him being in a ladder match but he should be one to watch. Hardy & Van Dam I see taking it to the limit so they definitely are my favorites for the crowd response on ladder moves. And as funny as this sounds I think Flair just might win this. Prediction: Ric Flair

WrestleMania 22 predictions Part 1

It’s all happening this Sunday. Sports Entertainment’s biggest showcase…WrestleMania 22. Normally we have the WrestleMania party with all the fixin’s but due to a change (massive change) in household income I am praying we will be able to hold true to a household tradition.

Anyway I would like to drop my predictions. Even though those of us that are true followers of wrestling not the MARKS (Mark – A member of the audience, presumed gullible.) know all of the matches are predetermined but none the less fun to predict. So here is my 2 cents worth:

Torrie Wilson vs. Candice Michelle in a Playboy Pillow Fight

Who cares? It will be a whole lot of rolling around, T’s shaking and A’s bouncing. If Victoria stays out of it and Candice doesn’t try to use her wand I can see Torrie winning. But once again it doesn’t matter.

Boogeyman vs. Booker T & Sharmell

This one should be interesting. I am still trying to find out more on the guy that plays Boogeyman but if in fact Sharmell is not at ringside I think Booker T’s ring skill will be tested. Boogeyman’s style is more of power than technical and if he can keep Booker T grounded he could possibly win. Prediction: Boogeyman

Trish Stratus vs. Mickie James for the Women’s Championship

In watching both ladies wrestle Trish strikes me as having just a little more ring skill than Mickie does. In previous matches I have spotted Mickie over-running her spot or not hitting her move at the right time. Trish on the flipside of the coin executes the same moves but she gets the bigger POP(Pop – Sudden heat from a house as a response to a wrestler’s entry or hot move.) no matter what. This particular match has potential for a great ANGLE (Angle – A wrestling plot which may involve only one match or may continue over several matches for some time; the reason behind a feud or a turn.). But if I have to predict it will be Trish if there is no interference. Prediction: Trish

Big Show & Kane vs. Chris Masters & Carlito for the World Tag Team

Now this has been an interesting road for both teams. You have had both teams wrestling together as well as one-on-one. Looking at both Big Show & Kane they have both dominated a mass majority of their matches. But they are both slow. Carlito and Chris are smaller in size which makes the a little quicker on the moves. As individual wrestlers they both are very good technically and honestly they probably would do good as the Tag-Team Champions but they will resort to winning a matches anyway they can if the possibility of losing is there. That has been proven in the last 2 matches they have had. Prediction: Big Show & Kane

WrestleMania 22 predictions Part 2 (4)

United States Champion Chris Benoit vs. JBL

Bar none Chris Benoit ranks up there with some of the best technical wrestler ever to grace the squared circle. JBL on the other hand is high ranking when it comes to power wrestlers. Not to mention the fact he is also a great bleeder. The disadvantage for Benoit is height and this could possess a challenge for him. JBL is also a dirty player when things are not in his favor. This is a hard one to call. I would like to see Benoit win but I see JBL on this one. Prediction: JBL

Edge vs. Mick Foley (Hardcore Match)

No doubt some of the best Hardcore matches have been given by Mick Foley. Personally his best were with Terry Funk but none the less he is known as the top Hardcore match specialist. Edge is known to have participated in the best TLC matches in WWE history and it has yet to be recreated. But let’s go back in time for a quick second. The last good somewhat of a hardcore match Mick Foley had was in the Hell in a Cell match against The Undertaker at King of the Ring. He sustained some major injuries and if you ask me those injuries had an effect on his Hardcore matches from that point on.

In his “Loser must retire” match against Triple H it was clear his injuries had not totally healed. That to me was his last hardcore match. So now we come to this match against Edge. I see Mick giving his best (as he always does) but for some strange reason I am feeling Edge with the win. I am sure Edge will probably take the beating but in the end I just think he will win. Prediction: Edge

Saturday Night Special again/ Back in the 80’s

If you are a wrestling fan like I am you should remember WWE’s “Saturday Night Main Event”. At the time it was WWF and some of the big stars that made Saturday Night’s Main Event were Hulk Hogan, Randy “Macho Man” Savage, King Kong Bundy, The Undetaker and Sid Justice just to name a few. Well starting March 18th on NBC (which is where it all started) it will air once again. This to me will be so nostalgic because I will travel back in time to my teenage years to remember how many times I actually turned down going to parties and hanging out just to see Saturday Night’s Main Event.

This was a tradition growing up and my grandmother & I literally stopped everything just to sit and watch it. I hope that today’s Superstars can bring the electricity that made this show successful. I am sure they will but it was that something special about a Saturday Night wrestling show that made it timeless.

Check you local listings to see what NBC is in your area.

Back in the 80’s

Back in the 80’s when the WWE (then known as WWWF) had finally hit a high with viewership and was seen in every household. They had a vast array of characters, one of them being Tatanka.

Chris Chavis “aka” Tatanka was born in Pembroke, N.C.; home of the Lumbee Native American Tribe. He is a former student of Bethel High School, Hampton, Va. 1975-1978. During his time in school he played football all 3 years and was voted most valuable lineman in 1977. He was also in the Army R.O.T.C.where he was promoted to the highest rank of Command Sargent Major in his Jr. year. In his Sr. year he was promoted to the highest rank of Colonel and received a scholarship to the West Point Academy.

He held the following titles in bodybuilding:

1983 1st place Mr Goldcoast.

1985 2nd place Citrus States.

1987 1st place First Coast Bodybuilding Championship

1988 1st place Mr. Gulf Coast

He tried out for the Miami Dolphins, Detroit Lions, Washington Redskins, and Oakland Raiders to pursue a career in football. Although he was offered a with the Miami Dolphins he opted not to take it because he was making more working at Bally’s gym. He left Bally’s (even though he was given raises) in 1989 to pursue a career in professional wrestling and in January of 1990 turned pro. In 1991 he was signed to the WWE and had a terrific run.

As a wrestler he spent 300 days per year on the road and in 1996 decided to take a break from the sport to spend time with his wife to get his personal relationship in order. During that time he not only did he rebuild his relationship with his wife but he also developed a relationship with GOD. During that time off his wife gave birth to a baby girl.

2 1/2 years later he stepped back into the squared circle and ultimately captured The South African Heavyweight Title, The U.C.W. Heavyweight Title, and The Mid-Atlantic Heavyweight Title. In September of 1999 he also captured The Heavyweight Champion for I.W.A. Championship Wrestling thus making his belt count 5.

He is working the independant circuits and making personal appearances. He is also involved with WXL (another wrestling promotion) based in South America. It is good to know he is still around.

Mosley vs Vargas (Boxing)

It’s going down on PPV (Pay-per-view) February 25th at 9pm. “Sugar” Shane Mosely vs. “Ferocious” Fernando Vargas is a fight that I have wanted to see.

Mosley (41-4, 35 KOs) hailing from Lynwood, California has been world champion at lightweight, welterweight, and junior middleweight thus being known as the best pound for pound fighter in many boxing circles. His win in June of 2000 over Oscar De La Hoya placed him in such a great position by winning the welterweight title but his 2 losses to Vernon Forrest (former Olympic opponent) and Winky Wright had many wondering if Sugar was still sweet in the ring. Mosely says “I am mentally prepared for this fight. My work ethic is better, and my intensity is higher than it has been in the past. This is a big fight, and I want to use this fight and the ones after it to make a statement that I am the best fighter in the world.”

Vargas (26-2, 22 KOs) hailing from Oxnard, California has had an extraordinary amateur record of 100-5. He turned pro in 1997 and was named “Fighter of the year” in 1999 by the World Boxing Hall of Fame. In September of 2002, Vargas surrendered his WBA and IBA titles to Oscar de la Hoya in an historical jr. middleweight championship unification showdown that went 11 of 12 rounds. He returned to the ring on July 26, 2003, and hammered WBC #1 ranked jr. middleweight contender Fitz Vanderpool to earn a sixth round stoppage (TKO 6). Vargas wore down Vanderpool with lead rights to the head and crippling combinations to the body before ending the bout at 2:36 of round six with a 14-punch flurry.

After a 15-month layoff he returned on March 26, 2005, to dominate IBF #7 ranked middleweight contender Raymond Joval and capture a unanimous decision by the scores of 98-92, 97-93, and 96-94 (W 10).

In his last bout on August 20, 2005, Vargas floored two-time world champion Javier Castillejo in round three on his way to capturing a unanimous decision (W 10). Nearly 10,000 fight fans jammed the Allstate Arena to watch the Oxnard, CA two-time jr. middleweight champion outbox Castillejo.

Vargas says “I am not going to disrespect Shane Mosley. He is a world champion and I consider him a friend. I actually have nothing but love for Shane Mosley; nothing but love. But on February 25, when that bell rings, there are no friends in the ring.

Stay tuned to see what happens.
