Sports Gambling – How to Know How Much to Bet Per Event

The most common mistake amateur and professional sports gamblers make is betting too much on individual events. A simple hard and fast rule is to never bet more than 2.5% of your sports betting balance on any given sporting event. However, before we get to the details of how much to bet there are a few basic rules that any sports gambler must remember:

Rule 1: NEVER bet more than you can afford to lose. This is the one rule that too many people ignore before it is too late. Ignoring this the rule creates all the horror stories. In sports gambling you must remember that there will be hot streaks and cold streaks and you do not want to subject your rent money or mortgage payment to any risk what-so-ever. If the money you are using to gamble is earmarked for a necessity then you should not be gambling with it. Only gamble with discretionary income.

Rule 2: NEVER bet with your heart. This, again, is one simple rule that many gamblers seem to ignore. If the Dallas Cowboys are your favorite team, you must recognize (despite what you may think) that you WILL be biased in trying to determine the winner of any of their games. The common (mistaken) logic is that because they are your favorite team you know more about that team and therefore, you should be able to make a determination about the winner of their games. Nothing is further from the truth. The problem with this logic is that you listen to biased Sports Radio regarding your team, you read biased Newspaper articles regarding your team and most importantly, you are biased about your team. The best rule to follow is to avoid betting on any game that involves a team that you have ANY allegiance toward.

Rule 3: NEVER bet on a game because it is on Television. It is okay to bet on a game that is on Television, but do not bet on a game SOLELY because it is on television.

Rule 4: ALWAYS bet the same amount on every event that you bet. To state it differently, do not play $250 on Pittsburgh versus Dallas, $150 on New England versus Indianapolis and $500 on Oakland versus Chicago. The only reason Sports Gamblers do this is because they feel more confident about Oakland versus Chicago, less confident about Pittsburgh versus Dallas and slightly confident about New England versus Indianapolis. All too often, the “best” pick of the day, turns out wrong, a back door cover creates a loss or a late interception causes a change in the result of the game. DO NOT FALL FOR THE 5 STAR LOCK OF THE DAY. This is why: Say Steve bets $500 on Oakland +7 versus Chicago; $250 on Pittsburgh +4 versus Dallas and $150 on New England -3 versus Indianapolis. Further say Tom makes the EXACT three same picks, but bets $300 on each game. Both gamblers have bet $900.00. Assume Oakland does not cover but Pittsburgh and New England do cover. Steve won 2 games and lost 1, but has lost $100.00 ($250+$150-$500). Tom on the other hand has won 2 games and lost 1, but has won $300.00 ($300+$300-$300). There is nothing more frustrating than having a winning percentage, but losing money.

Rule 5: NEVER bet more than 2.5% of your bankroll on any single event. If your balance in your sports betting account is $1000.00 then you should bet $25.00 per game. The reason is very simple. If you bet $25.00 per game you would have to lose 40 straight games before your account busted. If you bet $100.00 per game (10% of your balance) you would only have to lose 10 straight before your account busted. In other words, by betting 2.5% of your account balance on any given game, you INSURE yourself that you will be able to withstand even the worst losing streak. Make sure that you follow Rule #4 as well…Do Not bet more money on one game and less on another.

Rule 6: Once you increase the amount you bet per game, DO NOT reduce the amount you bet per game. Further, you should only increase the amount you bet per game once you have increased your bankroll by 25%. Taking our example above further. If the bankroll is $1,000.00 then the bet is $25.00 per game UNTIL the original balance is increased to $1,250.00. At this point, the amount bet per game is increased to $31.25 per game (or 2.5% of $1,250.00). You would continue at this amount until the balance is increased against by 25% (to $1,560). If you would begin to lose and you fall below the last benchmark YOU DO NOT REDUCE the amount bet per game. If you do, you will find yourself in a never ending cycle.

Following these 6 simple and rather basic rules you will find that sports gambling will become less stressful and more fun.

Is Statistical Tournament Poker Gambling?

I’m a poker player, not a professional by any means, but not bad player either. This last month a new poker parlor opened in Portland, Oregon that got my interest. I had seen lots of tournament poker in bars around Portland but they didn’t appeal to me for a few reasons…

1. They were in a bar, which meant a smoke filled environment and I am not fond of cigarette smoke.

2. The nights of play varied, often it was like every Tuesday night but not every night, if I wanted to vary my nights of play I had to go to different locations.

3. There was no guarantee that I could play, if I made the trip to the bar and the seats at the tables were already assigned I was SOL, I made the trip for no reason, or I had to wait 2 hours for the next game to begin, which might already be all assigned.

4. There was an expectation to use the establishment, and I agree with this, if they host a poker game they should expect the participants to buy food, drink, and whatever else. But extra bar food is not always in my budget.

5. Because the game was free it was usually crowded and the seats taken up by regulars who usually did not use the establishment, they even had the audacity to bring food or drink from another location into the establishment where the game was being played.

So, needless to say I did not play in the bar tourneys much. In steps this new poker room, National Poker Challenge, opening a new location here in Portland in the Cedar Hills area. I had to check it out and I was pleasantly surprised. They had addressed all of the issues I had with bar tournaments.

1. The room was non-smoking, a smoking area had been set up outside for the players that had to have their addiction to get their fix.

2. There are games every day, several times a day. They open at 3:00pm and close around 10:00pm with their first game at 3:15pm and their last game currently around 8:30pm.

3. They have online sign-up available or you can call the room for a seat, if the game is full they can tell you the likelihood of you getting a seat as an alternate and if they don’t have enough players for a game they will call you and tell you so. They exercise an in-your-seat policy, at the time the game is supposed to start if you are not in-your-seat or at least called and told them that you are on your way, your seat is given to an alternate.

4. and 5. Because the location is devoted to the game and not a bar or restaurant itself there is no expectation to purchase anything from the establishment because poker is its business.

Their business model is similar to the bar tournaments in that you are not playing for cash but are playing for points and statistical analysis of your play. Rather then charging the bar owners for running the tournaments they charge the players directly and statistically track the players play. The players are charged a monthly subscription that pays for the facilities, the dealers, and the statistic tracking. They do offer invitational tournaments for the top players that have cash and prizes. There is no charge for the invitational tournament. So is this gambling?

According to the Oregon Department of Justice it is, because the players are paying a fee to play and there are prizes at the end. But what makes this different from other events? Is it the poker chips? Are poker players being discriminated against because they use a piece of clay to track their points during a game? Think about it, you can have a chess tournament with an entry fee, there are prizes at the end for the best players, but does the Department of Justice call that gambling?

You can have a marathon where the runners pay an entry fee and there are prizes at the end, and most of the runners don’t even have a chance of finishing first, but is this called gambling? But because poker players play a game that uses chips it is called gambling when the games they are paying for don’t even have prizes. So, again, is it gambling? In my humble opinion, No it is not gambling. You are playing a game of skill and having your skill tracked. My hope is that the Oregon DoJ is not successful in its discrimination of this location and drops their investigation.

I invite you to join us in the poker room and try your skill at the table, see how they track your statistics and see how it may improve your play. After all, their tag line is “Do you know who the best poker player is? We do!”

Online Poker Games

Online poker games are available for those who dislike visiting or are unable to visit a casino to play a physical poker game. Online games are played over the Internet, which has, in turn, provided a way for poker players around the world to enjoy the game.

The online poker game is a very tactical and luck-oriented game. In an online poker game, players do not sit right across the table and can’t observe others’ body language and reactions. In order to be successful in online poker games, players have to learn to focus more intensely on betting patterns and other behavior that are not physical in nature.

There are numerous poker rooms, and so it is often difficult to choose a place for playing the game. Party Poker is the most popular online poker room, with around 70,000 players online at any one time. The next is Paradise Poker, which consists of a more assorted range of poker tournaments as well as good ring-game action and a large array of poker games. Pacific Poker also attracts a fare share of online poker players.

Security measures in online poker game are tight, with most offering 128 bit encryption security, although the more-established poker rooms are the safest. A novice online poker player should stay at the lower limits until he builds up his experience, or the more experienced players might take all his money.

Online poker games offer a virtual way of enjoying the poker game through the Internet. Though a bit difficult, this game can be mastered in due course.

Online Roulette Benefits That You Can’t Find in Live Casinos

No casino is complete without a game of roulette. This is pretty much a rule created by popular demand, and as you can see, crowded roulette tables aren’t lacking in any gambling establishment. Why it also makes a lot of money for the house, what with being a gambling game that’s so random and not beatable by any real table strategy.

This is a reason why roulette was brought online when casinos started popping up in the Internet. This allowed many people with no access to land-based casinos to play roulette alongside other popular casino games like Poker, Blackjack, Slots, and Craps. Since then, roulette became a huge online gambling fad, to the point that the game itself became a marketing tool for the many online casinos in existence. Even those used to gambling in live casinos have begun playing roulette online instead, and not without good reasons.

One of these is the fact that playing online roulette is a lot more convenient than going to casinos to play the game. This is because one doesn’t have to spend on anything else apart from the chips and the registration, and that playing online doesn’t require one to travel to casinos, thus saving energy, gas, or fare money. Well these are the obvious ones. Playing online roulette has a couple of perks that you can’t get from playing the game in land-based gambling establishments.

One of these is the fact that online casinos give you the chance to play roulette for free. Yes, free as in you don’t have to spend a dime to play the game. In free roulette games, you are usually given a free bankroll which unfortunately can’t be exchanged with real cash. This bankroll can be as high as a few thousand dollars and resets whenever you refresh the browser, allowing you to play as much as you wish. Free roulette games can usually be played by anyone visiting the gambling website, although some more profit-oriented online casinos may require paid registration before playing. You will never find this in live casinos as all tables are reserved for those with the money to spend on roulette.

The other is the roulette bonuses that most online casinos offer. These are actual money that you can spend on an online roulette game. These bonuses are often limited to a few hundred dollars and are only given once so it’s best to be careful on how you spend them. This can be used for practice if free roulette is absent or for no more than a few fun, exhaustive spins. Of course you won’t find this in land-based casinos, ever. While giving free roulette bonuses may mean better foot traffic for them, this will also mean spending much to attract unsavory freeloading individuals besides genuine players.

These are but two helpful online roulette perks that you will never enjoy in live casinos. Why is that so, you may ask? The answer is simple: profit. You see, land-based gambling establishments are big spenders due to tons of maintenance costs and plenty of employees to pay for. Introducing free roulette games will definitely be a big loss for them.

Online casinos, in contrast, need no more than a small office and a skeleton crew for employees. Thus they pay for far lesser expense than their land-based counterparts and are able to provide great service and the perks we’ve just detailed.

Gambling Vs Your Brain: Who Wins?

Disputes about whether gambling has a positive or destructive influence on your brain has been going on for a while among both ordinary people and scientists. The latter have done a bunch of studies showing some unexpected results. Gambling is not always a thing that will cause problems for people, it may be even useful for your brain, and life. In this short article, we’ll tell you how games of chance influence your brain.

Gambling as a Cure

Muhammad Ali, Robin Williams, and even Pope John Paul II had one common feature – all of them were diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease. Most of the sufferers showed signs of slowness of movement, shaking, difficulty walking, and thinking problems. So how does Parkinson’s work? It literally destroys dopamine neurons in the brain that control body movement. Dopamine has another property – it’s one of the elements responsible for pleasure. From the point of view of gambling, the gaming process imitates the impact of the drug on your brain. In a nutshell, a person feels better, at least for a while. Of course, there are drugs which may help reduce the effect of the disease, but you need to increase doses every time you take the pill. And in the end, drugs becomes useless.

A Way to Keep Your Mind Young

Youth is something we wish to get rid of at first and then we desire to get it back. We can’t always be young, but at least we can slow down aging by using various innovational methods. As for the human brain, it also gets older with time. And if you want to be clever and witty in your 60s, then you should take care of your mind. The best way to look fresher than your peers is simple – just think and develop ideas.

Studies showed that those who keep their mind busy are much more likely to retain their mental capabilities than those who don’t have any brainstorm activities in their daily routine. Of course, there are plenty of exercises that can help you be a “clever guy” but all of them seem dull and mundane. And finally we’ve reached the major point – what about combining pleasure with utility? Gambling is at your service. And if you think that the previous sentence is nonsense, don’t rush to conclusions.

Almost all table games (Blackjack, Hold’em, etc.) require the use of short term memory. While you’re playing, you have to memorize and count cards. Besides that, keeping a conversation with gamblers, and making up a couple of witty jokes could never do any harm. Summarizing this paragraph, we can firmly say that gambling is a way to look bright in old age. By the way, choosing a proper place to play at is also a big deal. Most of the cool land-based casinos can be found only in certain cities and the ones you have in your hometown may not provide you with the necessary pleasure. Thankfully, nowadays, we can play at online gambling venues. But even when it comes to online casinos, it may be tough to choose the best option, since there are thousands of them. One of the best portals that review casinos and give you a reliable and informative opinion is HolyMolyCasinos. Those guys stand out from the crowd – the information is given in both funny and enlightening ways.

Addiction

Despite the facts listed above, gambling can’t be regarded as a totally harmless pastime, just as medicines can’t always be considered a cure. Games of chance may potentially become as addictive as physical substances. People who are heavily into betting feel an overwhelming desire to play more and more, until they win. And when players hit the right combination, the idea to win even more overcomes them. It seems to be a vicious circle.

The integral part of online casinos is a Self-exclusion program. Players can request this option, which will ban them from the access to a casino. So, if you’re afraid of getting carried away by playing online games, you can always force yourself to stop by reaching out to support agents.

Closing thoughts

We’ve reached the final point – it’s time to sum up everything that’s been said here. We have demolished a myth that gambling is always a “bad guy” and it’s better to stay away from games of chance and luck. Now you know that diseases like Parkinson can be prevented (or even temporarity remedied) by spinning slots, or playing table games. Another advantage is that not only is gambling a good way to spend your leisure time, but also you can retain your mental abilities for the rest of your life. But keep in mind that games of chance and luck may be addictive, and may cause some problems to players as well as their family.

Advantages Of Choosing Casino Games From A Trusted Casino Portal

Many people tend to choose where to play casino games completely at random – perhaps by clicking a colorful and flashing banner at some website they have found while browsing, or by following a promotional link in an e-mail. Now, there is nothing wrong in signing up with a trusted online casino via their advertisements – not at all – however, the question is whether this behaviour is going to land the player with the best deal available for that particular casino? Also, are there perhaps any other considerations the player should keep in mind prior to diving in to just any casino game or website?

In this article we will discuss the advantages of choosing where to play casino games by visiting a trusted casino portal prior to playing. First, let us define what such a portal is. The term portal, when used in the context of the online web, is primarily a gateway providing useful links to many other websites. When used properly, a portal can provide essential information to the visitor about the topic of interest – and can also guide him or her to some recommended resources. This may save the visitor a lot of time and effort in evaluating the usefulness of the websites that they may come across. In this sense, the internet portal is very similar to the city tourist office where visitors come to find sightseeing attractions.

In the casino entertainment industry, portals are exclusively necessary and vital to the users as, quite frankly, there are simply so many casino games and gambling websites to choose from. By visiting an online casino portal, the player can quickly gather essential information on the games they would like to play and evaluate the reputation of a particular website in beforehand.

The true purpose of a good casino portal is to provide visitors and players with useful information – whether it has to do with the rules of the casino games (aka how to play), reviews of individual online casinos or poker rooms – or any other information on the subject that may appeal to the player.

One of the benefits of subscribing to the newsletter of a trusted casino portal, or by visiting it on a regular basis, is that players can stay updated with the latest offers provided by various online casinos. More often than not, casino portals have the ability to work out special deposit bonus deals with some of the casino operators which are exclusive to the portal subscribers. This way, the player may receive more in bonuses when signing up for a new online casino, rather than signing up via a random banner click elsewhere.

Of course, there are certainly many bad examples of casino portals available on the internet. These websites are often simple web templates stuffed with various casino banners and affiliate links, providing no valuable information to visitors whatsoever. Such websites should be avoided at all cost – a very common strategy for these websites is to plant tons of annoying pop-ups or redirections distracting the visitor. In worst case, they may even contain viruses or malware.

Luckily enough, most casino portals provide its users with an informative and enjoying gaming experience. By choosing to play casino games via a trusted casino portal, players can rest assure that they will get quality gameplay – probably also associated with the best deposit bonus deals available.

Online Slot Games And Payout Rates

The simplicity of slots coupled with the promise of lucrative money prizes make this casino game a favorite among players. However, working out the true probabilities of winning and the expected return on your stakes can be misleading. Learning and understanding the odds of online slots is essential for any player looking to increase the chances of winning and avoid breaking the bank.

The Chances of Winning on Slot Games

You would be surprised to know how many players begin placing bets without even knowing the payouts of the slot games they play. Furthermore, many casinos don´t focus too much on advertising the payout rates of their online slots and prefer highlighting the latest promotions and cash prizes that can be won playing these games. The truth is that no matter what other perks online casinos offer, a typical online slot will keep between 1% and 10% of all bets placed. Whether you play off or online, you can expect these payout rates. What this percentage means is that for every pound wagered on slots, the casino will earn between 1p and 10p. This payout rate is what it´s known as “expected return” on bets. Payout percentages are based on thousands of games played, which means that the payout in the short them could be higher. Nevertheless, you should always go for the slot games with the highest payout percentage to players.

Increasing Your Odds of Winning

Players are always looking for ways to improve their odds of winning on casino games, specially slot games. In other casino games, the player´s input can actually alter the advantage that the casino has over players. In online slots, however, the house´s mathematical advantage remains unchanged throughout the game. Nonetheless, players can follow a series of guidelines that can help them increase their winning odds. Some of these guidelines include adopting a solid bankroll management, knowing which slots to play and which ones to avoid, playing the slot games that offer more chances of winning and playing slots that offer a progressive Jackpot.

“Hot” Slot Games

Just like it happens with blackjack or roulette, where some variations of the game are more popular than others, there are some slot games that players favor more than others. The reason why some games stand out from the crowd almost certainly hast to do with how much they pay out to players. For example, when given the choice, most roulette players will prefer playing French roulette over American roulette because they know that the chances of winning are more attractive. There are some slot games that offer the same payout percentage to players, however, players argue that some of these slot games payout more than others. Some slot games such as Da Vinci Diamonds and Deal or No Deal are said to produce more winners than many others but there are two possible explanation for this. One possible explanation is that the amount of winners produced by one slot game is directly influence by the number of players playing this game. So the more players playing Da´Vinci Diamonds, the more winners there will be. In the case of Deal or No Deal slot, for example, the reason why this game is considered to be “lucky” may have to with the fact that players can play the minimum stakes and still qualify to win the progressive Jackpot. Thus, the more people playing this game, the more likely it will be that one of them will hit any of the three progressive Jackpots offered in the game.
