Roulette Strategy

In this article, I will dive into Roulette Strategy, also known as Roulette Systems. Many people think that Roulette Systems are a guaranteed way to beat Roulette or that Roulette Systems are all false. The fact is, a Roulette System is simply a Roulette Strategy (a way to play Roulette). No Roulette Strategy is fool-proof, but using a good Roulette Strategy can greatly increase the number of winning Roulette sessions you have. Reading a UK roulette bonus guide will also help you find a great bonus which will help you test these two roulette strategies mentioned below. If you know of a Roulette strategy not listed here, use the contact form to let me know about it.

Martingale System

This is one of the most popular systems known to man.

The Martingale Roulette System dates back about 300 years, according to my research. It is simply a progression system for even-money bets and is used in casinos, in some form or another, every day of the year all over the world. The Martingale betting system is a progression chain. You have to decide, according to your bankroll, how long that chain is going to be. Most casino players limit the Martingale Roulette progression chain to eight bets. Let’s take a look at what those eight bets would look like if you were a £1 player.

Bet Number One £1
Bet Number Two £2
Bet Number Three £
Bet Number Four £
Bet Number Five £16
Bet Number Six £32
Bet Number Seven £64
Bet Number Eight £128

As you can see from the chart, your total bankroll would need to be at least £255 for the session to run this Martingale chain. If you were a £5 bettor, you would need £1,275 to run the Martingale Roulette progression chain.

If your even-money bet hits anywhere from the first bet to the eighth, you win one unit. In the table above, you would win £1. The first question that pops into one’s mind is why in the world would someone bet £128 to win $1. The answer for most Martingale players is that the probability of losing nine times in a row is somewhat minimal and therefore, you are not just winning £1, you are winning back all of your money.

Just how safe is the Martingale system? Well, no system is safe in Roulette, but let’s look at the probability of you losing with an eight step Martingale Roulette system approach. It’s important to remember there are two kinds of Roulette (American and European). As you will see in the chart below, the European version of Roulette is better for using the Martingale Roulette system. [Read more…]

Explore the Differences Between Sports Betting and Online Gambling

Sports betting. Online gambling. It goes without saying that the two concepts have a great deal of overlap. After all, money is still changing hands, and there’s a thrill in the air. When risk is involved, reward quickly follows…if you dare. But many people aren’t sure what the differences are between the two. If you’re going to develop into a seasoned punter, you’re going to need to understand your environment. The more that you can understand, the easier things will be in the long run.

Online Gambling

If you’re not interested in doing the analysis of sports teams before you bet on them, you can always stick with traditional online gambling. This would include things like slot games, poker, bingo, keno, blackjack, baccarat, craps, and more. Scratch card games are popular because you know right away whether you’ve won something, and you can usually pick up games very cheap if you get them in bulk. Online casinos are the perfect gateway to a weekend full of entertaining experiences, and it’s available on more devices than you might imagine. Don’t think that you’re going to be chained to your laptop. If you have a recent smartphone, you can take the fun on the go. This is something that you can do with sports betting as well, but online gambling has had this functionality for a lot longer.

Sports Betting

The online revolution has made sports betting completely easy to slide into. All you have to do is find a sportsbook, sign up, place your bets, and look for the results. Every bookmaker will have slightly different odds, so research before you get too invested. The main difference with sports betting is that you’re making money on a particular outcome, which can be as broad or precise as you want. Obviously, the more precise the bet, the more money at stake if you win. For example, if you’re putting on American style football, you want to bring the final score into the picture, not just which team will win ultimately. One has a substantially higher payout than the other.  Another difference is that sports betting isn’t really competitive. You’re not going head to head against other gamblers, which is nice. And the future for sports betting is very bright. There are even big acquisitions going on in this space, a classic sign that things are going very well.

Which path will you choose? It’s completely up to you. There’s nothing that says that you can’t choose both, of course. Other people like to focus on some casino game that they’re good at, and then build from there. We recommend that if you’re going to go the sports betting route, that you take the time to do all the necessary analysis before you start placing bets heavily. While it’s true that it’s not a true requirement, we’ve found that our bets were stronger when we started looking at the quality of each team involved.

The Golf Course – A Beginner’s Guide

So you have learnt the basic swings and you think you are now ready to hit the golf course. Well not quite. The golf course in itself is deserves another lesson. It is not, as many people assume, just a big green field with holes where your golf ball should land, there would not be fun in playing the game if the only point was to get the ball in the hole now, would there?

The golf course is intricately designed to, as the name suggests, chart out a course that you ought to follow as you play, and you cannot proceed to the next hole if you have not succeeded in the previous one.

The following guide simply explains to you the basic elements of the course, so that when you do go there, you will know what you are doing (hopefully).

Golf Course

The tee boxes

Almost all golf courses have at least three tee boxes, although many have four. These act as a starting point from where you will take your swing. The four types of tee boxes are distinguished by their distance from the hole. They are marked in different colours to differentiate them.

The red tee boxes are closer to the hole. They are the ones that are used by women (as it is generally accepted that women are weaker in terms of physical strength), children and beginners.

The tee boxes marked by white on the other hand are a bit further away and are the tee boxes that are generally expected to be used by the average player.

The tee boxes that are marked in blue in most golf courses (although there are some that mark them in black) are further away than the white tee boxes and are for players that are above average and do not suffer from most of the common golf handicaps.

Black tee boxes finally (for the golf courses that have four of them) are reserved for championship players. They are much further away from the hole and require a very experienced and skillful player. You should not attempt teeing from a black marked tee box if you are a beginner as you will not get very far, literally!

Holes

Most golf courses have either 9 or 18 holes, although the standard ones have 18. These holes are usually divided into segments of 9, with the first 9 holes being referred to as the front 9, while the other 9 holes being referred to as the back 9.The holes run across the entire span of the golf course, usually starting and ending right by the club house.

golf holes

There are usually signs right next to the holes. These signs tell you just how far the hole is from each tee box and include other information including the design features of the course that might affect your game, such as hazards that might be in the way and sand dunes.

Hazards

These are obstacles that are placed in the golf course to increase the difficulty level of the game, and the fun as a result. These include trees, ponds, streams and extremely long grass along the path of the hole you are supposed to play.

Sand traps are also a common obstacle found in most golf courses. These are pits that have sand in them, located somewhere along a particular hole. This specific type of obstacle is especially challenging because the player, once they land in a sand trap, is required to make a specific kind of swing in order to be able to get out of it.

Cuts of grass

There are four basic cuts of grass along a golf course which define it. The fairway refers to the region that runs along the hole. The grass here is cut very short and close to the ground. The rough has much longer grass. It usually runs along the sides of the fairway.

The green is the area around the hole. This is the target the player is aiming for when he tees. The fringe on the other hand is the area that surrounds the green. To make the play more challenging it usually has longer grass and even trees and small bushes in some courses.

When You Need a Break from Laying Bets, Here’s Two Games to Play

Don’t look at the title and write us angry emails, folks: we love sports betting as much as anyone else. Betting on the little matches is just as satisfying as going for the big championship wins. However, there comes a time where we like to spread our interests out, and that’s where other game ideas come to the surface. We’ve been checking out the selection of games to choose from at Casino-X.com, and we absolutely love it!

See, you have a lot of options, but let’s just start you off with two:

1. Roulette

Roulette
Roulette is one of those games that always get featured in the movies, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t play it as well. Roulette is thrilling because you get to watch the big wheel spin around and around. Will you be a winner, or will you have to spin again? Some people claim to have roulette systems that can make them a winner every time, but we’ve never seen any of these claims actually be the case.

2. Jackpot Slots

jackpot-slots

We’re not just talking about out of reach jackpots, or slot games that are faded and not very interesting. We’re talking about full color games that have rich soundtracks and special effects to them. Jackpot slots also have another feature that should get your interest: the chance to win huge amounts of money! What would you do with your winnings? You can go ahead and start dreaming, because real people have won several big jackpot slot games. Many of these games also have a progressive feature, which means that the pot gets even bigger as people don’t win the big prize! How high will it go before someone’s the lucky winner? We don’t know, but we do know that you should go over to Casino-X.com and try to make sure that it’s you!

There are plenty of other game ideas to check out. If you’ve already placed bets, then it’s not like you have anything to lose. You can do sports betting and check out a new place to play at the same time. Don’t worry, we do the same thing all the time and have expanded our experiences tenfold in gambling. Why not see if you can do the same thing?

Daily Fantasy Sports – Gambling or a Game of Skill?

Ever since a Draftkings employee inadvertently released information on what players were drafted the most in the NFL earlier in the year, there has been a lot of discussion as to whether or not these sites should be considered gambling sites. One side of the spectrum suggests its pure luck to win any money, while others believe it’s a game of skill. While I see and understand both sides, here are my thoughts on Draftkings, FanDuel, Daily Yahoo Fantasy, and all the others out there.

Consider the Lottery Approach

When you watch the commercials on television, most of them revolve around becoming a millionaire. Entering these contests typically cost at least $20 to enter. If you play on Draftkings, there are 343,500 entries at $20 a pop.  The company pulls in $6,870,000 and pays out $6 million. Yes, this is for one contest that runs from Sunday at 1pm thru the Monday Night Football game. When you consider the thousands of contests offered just for the NFL, it’s a pretty big money maker for Draftkings.

Daily Fantasy Sports

In this particular event there are a total of 75,500 spots paid, with the lowest win set at $30. Your goal is to pick the best team possible in hopes of beating everyone else. Truthfully, the chances of winning the $1,000,000 first place prize is a lot like the lottery. Instead of picking 6 numbers exactly right, here you are picking 9 players that score the most points. I’ve been doing this for about 3 weeks now, and there always seems to be two players that don’t score enough to put me near the top.

Just last week my first 3 players averaged 38 points apiece, and things were looking good, but all it takes is one player to score 17 points (which would normally be a great game in fantasy) to end up at the bottom of the pile. The tournament I play in on Sunday’s is a smaller $3 entry fee, but with 575,000 entries. There are more payout spots, but for less money and you’re competing against more entries. Last weekend I won $7 for a Sunday hoping I was going to win the $100,000 first place prize.

So does this sound like gambling to you? Well, take a look at the other side.

Consider the Game of Skill

When you play the lottery, you either pick the numbers yourself or they are randomly generated for you. The odds are based on the overall number of entrants. There is no rhyme or reason to picking 6 numbers, but some people will tell you they are successful playing the lottery because they increase their own odds. This could mean they spend a lot of time researching how often numbers come up and what combinations seem to happen the most. [Read more…]

MMA and UFC Betting Puts Cash In Your Pocket

When MMA fights first came out, they didn’t hold a lot of appeal with the mainstream audience. They were considered too bloody, and they were dismissed as being a fad that would go away quickly. Dana White, one of the major players in the UFC world, worked to rebrand the sport as being about performance rather than just bloodsport. This was something that turned the sport into a truly global phenomenon. But you probably know all of that. You want to figure out whether out not betting on UFC events will put cash in your pocket.

The answer is yes, but there are conditions to it. You see, you can’t just bet from the gut. If you’re just getting into UFC matches, you need to study the contenders closely. Going with whoever the media likes means that you could blow money on the wrong events, leading to a lot of problems later down the road.

First and foremost, look at the odds in the marketplace. Sportsbooks are designed to make money, but they can also help you make money. You just need to calculate the odds as best you can, and then look at which picks can make you money. If you’re looking at each player, then you should be able to make smarter matches.

Playing at an online sportsbook gives you benefits. It’s not just about bonus hunting, either. You get the benefit of being able to watch some of the games live as they happen. If you don’t have an expanded cable subscription that lets you view the games, some sportsbooks will let you view a stream. They have a license for the ability to do this, so you’re not in danger of violating any copyright laws checking out the game.

There will be bets you make that end up not coming to pass. If a contender gets injured or otherwise can’t finish the round, you want to be assured that the bet is either going to be cancelled out, or made in your favor. Every sportsbook has a set policy on how they’re going to handle this, so make sure that you look it up on their site. There are just too many sportsbooks for us to tell you how this is going to be. Even if we could, you’ll find the information changes very quickly.

The key here is to study as much historical data as possible. As the UFC fights come and go, we’ll continue to highlight the strengths and weaknesses of every player, as well as giving as much background as possible. We hope you’ll stay tuned!

College Football Betting

If you are such a football nut that the urban warfare of the NFL is just not enough for you and you also like to keep an eye on the players that will grace football’s pro ranks in the years to come, then the NCAA football is right up your alley.

If you are also a sports bettor, betting on college football games can be a hugely lucrative sideline from your usual NFL sports betting. However, if you thought that picking NFL winners was getting harder every season, trying to spot winners in the huge and complex college football system is a much tougher ball game altogether.

But don’t despair! By checking out the odds at allpro you will be able to spot the favorites and ensure that you avert the minefield that is college football and hopefully get great returns from your NCAA football sports betting.

College Football

As a football fan, you are familiar with the way things are in the NFL – 32 teams divided into two 16 team conferences, after the culmination of the regular season the top eight teams from each conference then going through to contest the playoffs, and the two winning teams then going on to compete in the sporting showpiece that is the Super Bowl.

If you are relatively new to collegiate football, be warned – the game is the same, but that’s all. There are more than two hundred college football teams competing each season, divided into dozens of leagues and conferences.

The winners of all of these conferences are decided by 35 ‘Bowl’ championship games. Sound complicated? It is! And to cap it all, the winner is declared by a voting panel within the National Collegiate Athletic Association, not on the football field!

Why wager on college football?

Another reason why sports bettors enjoy wagering on college football games is because many matches are screened live on TV. During the college football season, you can usually find live games on Saturdays and Sundays, and occasionally on Mondays, Thursdays and Fridays as well as. A sports bettor armed with the unbeatable college football picks can therefore kick back with a beer and enjoy the game, knowing their money is safely on the winning side! [Read more…]
