More On Gambling Systems – System Black Box

In my last article, “Gambling Systems” I talked about gambling systems that involved the actual physical aspects of the games such as the white ball in roulette and the dice in craps. Now I will deal with betting systems that can actually be used in any of the games, except poker.

With the advent of on-line casinos, a whole new world opened up that allowed anyone, anywhere, to gamble. With this phenomena also came a flood of on-line gambling systems. One of these is the very popular, “System Black Box” that capitalizes on the fact that some on-line casinos will offer free gambling “chips” to anyone that signs up with their casino for play. “System Black Box” is designed strictly for on-line casino play. While there are live casinos that have similar offers for free play, it is most often a “match-play” situation in which you must use some of your own money along with the free-play coupon. In other words the coupon is worth $1 if you also play a real dollar with it. Should you win that first bet, you then immediately bet the $2 that you just won, putting the newly acquired house money in play and taking back your $1 original bet. (The $1 coupon is taken, win or lose. It is only good for one play.) If you are considering gambling on-line with any of the games offered, I would encourage you to look into “System Black Box” as a possible tool.

Another very popular betting system is “Betting For Profit” and is also available on-line. The difference is that “Betting For Profit” can work with both on-line play and live play. This system is a bit more in depth and involves an increasing bet according to the last play you made. It is a very good system and also includes what the author calls his “Seven Cardinal Rules Of Gambling.” In “Betting For Profit” you learn how to treat gambling as a business, not as a recreational activity. It is a very realistic approach and can work if you follow the guidelines that are set forth in the method, which is what “Betting For Profit” is actually called. Both “System Black Box” and “Betting For Profit” are what I would call methods as opposed to systems as they both do not deal with the physical aspects of the games and concentrate on betting strategies. I have found, through my extensive experience that betting methods and strategies are really the only valid ways of creating a winning trend in casino gambling. I compare this type of method with playing the stock market, which is of course, just another type of gambling. With the stock market, when someone can double their money, it is a significant gain. With casino gambling, if you want to be successful, you must enter in to that kind of mentality. In “Betting For Profit” the author tells of ways to begin to treat gambling as a business and not as entertainment. This is how a professional gambler approaches gambling. To me, it is akin to guerrilla warfare and in fact must be followed if you are serious about winning. A professional gambler sees gambling as “going to work” instead of entertainment. To gamble professionally you must lose the kind of attitude that puts you at a casino game for fun. That is not to say that you cannot enjoy what you are doing. But you must remember that you are there to make money, not lose it while you are playing and entertaining yourself.

I short, I find that both “System Black Box” and even more so, “Betting For Profit” can actually work for the gambler. With “System Black Box” the player need not know a great deal about the game he or she is playing but must at least know the general rules of whatever game that might be. “Betting For Profit” assumes that the reader is aware of at least some good basic strategy for the chosen game. So the conclusion is that a betting method or procedure can be a valid tool to enable a player to win at casino gambling while the “system” type of play simply does not work and is not really valid. Let me repeat here that when I was working in the casino business, we used to laugh at system players and considered them no threat, while the smart, tough player that knew how to manage his or her money and was able to walk away a winner would more times than not, take a small bite every time that he or she played, and sometimes even a big bite!

Best Advantage of Winning/Casino Gambling

If you are someone who likes to have a gamble and is drawn to the bright flashing lights of the slot machines and gambling chips of the casinos, you will be well aware of the addictive quality of these machines as you can spend a lot of time and money with them. The big illusion that the casino gives is that you, the player, are in control as you are given choices. In reality you are at a disadvantage as these slot machines have built-in payout percentages in favour of the house.

There are different types of casino gambling, each have a special kind of attraction that may draw you to it. But if you like to win in casinos, you must look at which game will give you the best advantage of winning. Card games are probably the casino game that gives its players the best chance of winning as you can develop your skill at playing cards and reduce the element of chance. Popular games such as poker and blackjack are games that give players who are skilled the best advantage of winning in the long-term even though a degree of luck are involved.

Blackjack is a card game that requires an element of skill and chance and can turn the odds in your favour by using a betting strategy on the way that the cards have been dealt. In blackjack a player is dealt two cards and the object of the game is to get close to 21 so they can draw as many cards till they get close to that total. After a player receives their cards they have to decide whether to hit or stand. If you stand you are close to 21 but if you hit you need additional cards to get close to 21. Although this is a game of chance it is possible to win if you are observant and can be a lot of fun.

Poker on the other hand is a game of high strategy where players with partially concealed cards bet on a pot, with the pot being awarded to the remaining player with the highest combination of cards. A good poker player can win even with a bad set of cards as they have developed a strategy to learn who the sharper players are and how to deal with them. This takes careful study of each player’s move that will give you the best advantage of winning. The more you play the more you will be able to develop your own strategy for winning at poker.

The Game Of Gambling

For many people gambling is a way of relaxing after a day’s work but for most it is “work”. Yes, it is true, gambling can earn you big time money! Many people gamble to earn big amount of money but gambling is not for everyone because it takes more than luck to be able to win in big casinos. It takes skills and talent. Aside from that a person has to be very good in math in gambling. Mathematics, logic and math…these trio go hand in hand in order for one to always hit the jackpot. But it is also a fact that even those who are lucky and talented in gambling do not always win big time. There are certainly times when a gambler will also lose big time and this is what most gamblers are afraid of. But once a gambler, always a gambler. And no matter how much and what is the risk in gambling, a gambler will never back out unless everything is taken away from him.

Las Vegas is the paradise of the gamblers. There are so many games that a gambler can enjoy in Las Vegas. From poker chips to slot machines. The choices are endless and not all games are the same. But one thing is common of all the games: there is thrill in every game. The thrill of throwing the dice, of slashing a deck of card and in inserting a coin in slot machines. Every gambler has one hope when playing and it is to win.

But, is gambling good or bad? For decades people with different views about gambling have argued about this subject and up until now nobody has ever won. Any would say that gambling is not good because it makes a person lazy, relying only in luck to earn money. While others would say that gambling is good because it can give a person the opportunity to be financially stable once he hits the jackpot. And not everyone in this country have the same point of view when it comes to gambling.

It is true that gambling can be an addiction and when it reaches to this point it advisable that you should keep stop yourself from gambling and only go back when you think that you can already control yourself. Many people have lost their family, friends, home and properties because they are hooked in gambling up to the point of not being able to decide what is right and wrong.

Free Casino Chips and Honest Online Casinos

An understanding of the relevance of free casino chips must be put into its proper context: are the offers of the free chips coming from honest online casinos?

The first online casinos opened 10 years ago, and now there are hundreds that can be found online. Estimates vary as to the number of people who gamble online, but recent estimates suggest that a figure of around seven million worldwide would not be too far out. Taking that into account, and with a further estimate of more than $12 billion spent in online casinos alone (not including physical land-based casinos), offers of free casino chips may understandably be seen as something of a drop in the ocean.

Add to that the question of whether or not these free chips are being offered by honest online casinos, and we enter an area worth some study or serious research.

Firstly, let us consider what these free casino chips are really worth to the individual online casino player. Free casino chips are of four main types:

No Deposit Bonus. This is simply free money. Honest online casinos will offer free casino chips with no strings attached, simply to attract people to play at their virtual tables. There will sometimes be minor strings attached. For example, the casino may ask for credit card details up front. Always read the terms.

Matching Deposit Bonus. This is where the house will match your deposit. Often this is done in multiples. For example, a 200% bonus will mean that if you were to deposit $100 then the casino would add $200 in free casino chips to your account. Very nice! Especially useful for new players starting out.

Uncashable Bonus. This is the so-called ‘sticky’ bonus. This can never be cashed, but its usefulness lies in that fact that it stays in your account and enables you to use the bonus account to ‘leverage’ higher wagers. These free casino chips stay latent in your account simply to allow you to do things which you otherwise could not.

Loyalty Bonus. This is exactly as it sounds. All honest online casinos, and offline ones too, want to keep hold of their good returning customers, and will offer loyalty bonuses, including free casino chips, as a result.

Remember that online casinos can afford to do this because they simply do not have the overhead that their brick and mortar land-based counterparts have. Equally, there is no excuse for an online casino NOT to be honest for exactly the same reason. They can offer free casino chips AND be an honest online casino in circumstances where their physical equivalents would find the financial burden impossible.

So how do we go about identifying which are the honest online casinos and which are not? Well, a lot has changed since the earliest online casinos set up shop in their offshore locations in 1996. Self-regulation (at best dubious) led to accreditation of bodies like ECOGRA (E-Commerce Online Gaming Regulation and Assurance). Look out also for evidence of good customer care, positive feedback from online casino forum members and decent helpline facilities. The more honest online casinos will offer (will actively boast) 24 hour live chat and live email support as well as toll-free telephone help. Does it have a mailing list you can join to keep in contact with the latest tournaments and special offers? Trust lies at the heart of any subscription process (or people would not subscribe) so that in itself is a good indicator of an honest online casino.

Transparency of accounting systems is another good indicator of honest online casinos. When testimonials are published make sure that it is from more than a set of initials, and make sure they have a state or country. Free casino chips may be ‘virtual’ in concept, but they are used by real people!

Why is Gambling So Fun?

The question we are looking at here is what is gambling? Gambling is taking a risk. Gambling is taking a chance on winning. Most of the time gambling is used in cards, sales, flipping houses, game shows, betting on horses, dogs, fights, sporting events and on anything else where there would be a risk involved. The gambling side of it is legal in some states but not legal in other states and thus only allows for places like Las Vegas and other cities for example, along the coast of Alabama and Louisiana to set up hotels along the beach to allow people to have places to go and gamble.

Gambling is taking a risk, right? Well, that is why sales is considered to be gambling. Gambling is done because you try to sale some one some thing and you take a risk on not making as much as what you initially invested in it. That is why flipping houses are also considered to be gambling. It’s considered to be taking a risk or taking a chance. Taking a risk just means that you are willing to bet a certain amount of money on it just to see what would happen and to see if you could win more money back out of it than what you put in on it. Cards are considered gambling because of the different kinds of card games that there are to play. Games like Rummy, Poker, Tong, 21, Black Jack, Spades, and other games can be considered gambling if you place a bet on the game you play. Purchasing gambling chips at a casino is using there money with in the casino to gamble and placing bets on games is considered to be that way as well.

Football games especially like the Super Bowl are generally gambled on. Parlays are used in football games more so than any other kind of betting. There are also full cover bets are used in football and other sporting events. There are different types of full cover bets. The different types of full covered bets are listed as followed: Trixie bets are bets placed on a selection of 3; Yankee bets are a selection of 4; Canadian or Super Yankee is a selection of 5 bets and Heinz is a selection of 6 bets. The full covered bets are generally used more in sporting events and other types of betting to where you can increase your earnings by placing multiple bets on the same player, team, winner, point’s selection, point differential or any other ways determined on how to win.

Fights on dogs, horses, chickens and humans are gambled on all the time. People consider how good the animal or human being is fighting verses the other animal or human being is that they would be fighting against. When the odds are in your favour then you bet high. If the odds are not in your favour then you bet low or go with the other player. If a team is considered to be the under dog then you may consider placing your bet on the other team because the other team has a better. Placing the bets to win money is what gambling is. Gambling is considered taking a chance at winning back more than what you risk was to be considered in the first place.

There is a rule when you gamble and that is to have fun with it and make more money than what you started with. When you gamble be sure that you are willing to risk it all for a few or a lot of what you risked in the first place. This is why it is such a gamble to bet against the odds or bet for the losing team if you know with out a doubt that they will probably lose.
