Video Poker Speed

Video Poker machines have come a long way since the ‘pioneer days’ of the early to mid 80’s. Those machines were, of course, coin operated only and prone to the problems associated with hand feeding large amounts of metal into a mechanical device. Often the coins if fed too fast would jam. Many player would keep a roll of coins handy to use a hammer to push on the coin release “button” which (unless you have been studying karate and hardening the side of your hands to break bricks with) are extremely painful to the bare hand. Just the wear and tear of constantly manipulating the coins and feeding them into the machines can be quite painful after many hours of play.

But the most obvious result of feeding coins into a machine, then and now, is that you are going to be playing at a very slow rate. The …

A Slot machine has three spinning reels with 22 positions per reel marked with symbols. Each time a spin is made, the three reels come to rest randomly with a selection of symbols showing in the game window. Certain combinations of symbols in the game window result in payoffs. The payoffs for the different winning combinations are shown in a window at the top of each Slot machine. For some machines, like Rags to Riches you need to click on the Payout Table button to view the Payout Table.

William Hill slot machines operate like slots machines found in the casinos throughout the world. The only difference, which is greatly favourable for the player, is that you can switch your coin value from £0.25 to £5 without changing to another machine!

$6 Million in the Jackpot Pool at RTG Casinos

$6 Million in the Jackpot Pool at RTG Casinos

I have a feeling that Jackpot Pinatas is going to be the next million dollar jackpot won but it could be Aztec’s Millions or Mid-Life Crisis too. My favourite RTG-powered casinos are Intertops, Grande Vegas and Jackpot Capital. Jackpot Capital announced a six-figure winner recently, but that was a player that had built up over $100,000 playing the new Loch Ness Loot slot over a few evenings at the casino, not one big jackpot win.

Casino Jackpots Building Quickly

At some casinos, like Slotland and WinADay, all the games at the casino are tied to one progressive jackpot. Both casino have just paid out big jackpot wins recently so they’re still building up. However, since there are so many players playing so many games that all contribute to the same jackpot they’re building quickly. Both Slotland and WinADay seem to announce massive winners every few weeks. The seven figure jackpots …

Sinister Sbobet dealer, a greedy casino or a disgruntled player? You decide

Why is it that every time I challenge the dealer, the decision always goes against me? Either I cannot find a decent casino, get bum dealers and pit bosses, or both. I also seem to find dealers who make mistakes, or dealers who every time I start winning, shuffle the deck. Do you think there is any hanky panky going on, or is it I? Larry B.

Hanky-panky is always in play‹but that’s a subject for the Lonely Hearts column.

Couldn’t help that, but back to business. I know what you mean. You might have made my job easier by mentioning specific casinos or geographic areas. But you didn’t, so we’ll go on what we’ve got.

In the seven joints that occupied 18 years of my life, disputes were generally settled in the player’s favor – unless of course the customer was blatantly wrong.

Now Or Never For bitcoin dice Uzbekistan

Now Or Never For bitcoin dice Uzbekistan

It’s a hard and long road to Germany 2006 and they don’t come much rockier than the paths from the inhospitable terrain of Central Asia.

Uzbekistan are aiming to become the region’s first ever representative at football’s showpiece event but despite lying bottom and winless at the bottom of Group A in the final stage of Asian World Cup qualifying with only one game remaining, the dream is not dead.

An automatic qualification place is out of reach but if the former Soviet Republic defeats Kuwait in Tashkent on August 17, third-place and a play-off with Bahrain awaits.

A victory over Bahrain, the third-placed team from Group B, will earn Bobby Houghton and his new charges another two-legged showdown with the fourth team from the CONCAFAF region with a place in Germany at stake.

The form of the team has been a surprise as many felt that an automatic qualification …
