How to Use Betting Systems
If you're an experienced casino player, you've probably already heard about the different betting systems.
Betting system raise an important question: can a player maximize his casino winnings using all sorts of mathematical and statistical tactics? This is an important questions because is this is true, players who don't have any knowledge in mathematics won't have the same chances as player who do, and the whole element of luck is being reduced into a minor factor in gambling.
After years and years of playing in the best online casinos and the most respected land-based casinos I can tell you that: betting systems don't work!
So why people keep using those systems you ask? Well, in the casino world, if there is a slight chance that something will help you to win, you will use it, especially if you are looking for fast and sure winnings.
The truth is that betting systems cannot beat the casino games with a house advantage and they also cannot even dent it. Think about it, cards, balls and machines (for example the Random Number Generators that you can find in slot and video poker machines) don't have a memory, they don't remember what the last score or result was. As far as the roulette goes, each turn of the will is a new spin that has no connection to the other spins. The RNG in slot machines generates new numbers without to consider the other results.
Therefore statistics have a very small influence on the casino games.
You can use statistics in most of the card games like baccarat, poker and blackjack, because you can use mathematics when it comes to specific card decks that are used in those games, but since both the roulette wheel and the slot and video poker machines are using completely random data, you cannot use statistics on it.
What about gambling systems that deal with money management? Do they have a chance to maximize your profits or at least to prevent you from losing all your money?
Take the Martingale system for example. The main idea behind the Martingale system is to double your bet after a loss. If you do that, in the end you must win, so you'll cover all your losses. This system is usually played with an even money games, like red/black bets in the roulette or the pass/don't pass bet in craps, but this system cannot offer you a 100%$ win because the casino has elements that prevent this system from working.
Let's take, for example, a player that starts to bet at $1, loses five bets and wins his 6th bet. If he'll double his bets each time he lose money he'll cover his losses, but since a player can win sometimes only after many bets not everyone have a good bankroll to cover and double after a loss.
Moreover, many casino games have a bet limit, so if you lose a sum of money that is close to the bet limit of the table, you cannot double it and the whole system becomes worthless.
In conclusion, most of the common betting systems will not help you to maximize your winnings, so our advice is simple: don't trust them.
The Best Of Online Betting Through Casino Gaming
Technology keeps advancing at a rapid rate with no end in sight and online betting is no exception. It is especially apparent with communication devices, computers, and the amount of information we have access to from the Internet. It is almost overwhelming. Just about any type of entertainment is now at our fingertips. As an example, we used to have to go to the movie theaters, or go to the video store to rent movies, but now you can view them on your own personal computer. The Internet has opened many entertainment opportunities to us, which were not available just a short time ago. For anyone who likes to play a good game of poker or gets a thrill from playing the slot machines, the Internet offers you the opportunity to play any type of gambling or casino game you can think of. There is online poker, baccarat, blackjack, craps, roulette, and even slots, you name it, and it’s out there.
Online poker can be viewed as more user friendly than actually playing at a table in a casino. The major difference is that players don’t sit across from each other, so it is impossible to read what the person has in their hand. New skills have to be developed, such as paying attention to betting patterns or reaction times. Also, since there are no delays collecting cards, shuffling and dealing, the number of games being played increases. With online betting, it doesn’t matter if you are a novice or professional, you choose the level at which you want to play.
Online poker allows the players to play for very low stakes, as little as .01¢. Many times the poker room offers freerolls as a way to attract beginners. Some online betting sites provide online poker schools. These schools teach the basics of poker to the novice and can, without a doubt, speed up the learning process. Many online poker rooms offer free money play, so players can practice building their skills and confidence, without losing any of their own money. This is a great way to learn and improve your game. Another way to entice you is to provide winners entrance into live tournaments. These tournaments are called satellites; sometimes you can win some really big money. One site brings you the Ongame Network Poker Classic; this tournament is a $5 million online poker tournament. Most sites will reward their customers with deposit bonuses. The site usually places a percentage into the players account and it can be accessed by a bonus code given to the player.
There are many other casino games available at online betting sites. One very popular one is video poker – this is setup with the same format as standard video poker, you can bet from .01¢ per hand to $5.00 per hand. You can also play either one hand or as many as 100 hands per session. Of course there are bonuses, money winnings and free hands. Another very popular game is the slots. The slots are easy to play and there are usually many different variations. Some sites have mini-slots, 3-reel slots, 5-reel slots, and more. You either win or lose, it all depends on where the reels land when they stop spinning. It is just the same as playing at an actual slot machine; you can only win the maximum payout when you insert the maximum amount of coins per play. Again, there are bonuses and prizes to be won, or free reloads.
Most games do not have to be downloaded from the Internet to play. You have the option with most games to either download them from the Internet or use the Instant Play feature. Most online betting sites offer signup bonuses to new players making their first deposit. Most of the time the bonuses match a percentage of the amount of the player’s deposit. Some betting sites offer you the opportunity to choose to be a part of live-based casinos. This is where you actually interface with a land-based casino and are playing in a real-time window. Players can interact with the dealers and can see and hear what is going on. One major concern players have is they are worried that the site can cheat them out of winnings. Sure that is a real possibility, but many online betting portals are certified by gaming commissions and audited by major firms that review the fairness of random number generators, shuffles and payouts. If a site is found to be involved in fraudulent behavior, they are shutdown or blacklisted.
Some people are a bit skeptical about joining a gambling site. We hear endless stories of people setting up false companies on the Internet and scamming unsuspecting people out of their hard earned money. What do you look for in an online betting site that is secure and guarantees that you will be paid your winnings? When you access a site, look for information or a statement about guarantees and who is operating the site. Many sites are licensed and regulated by specific governments. Some are even publicly traded. Look to see if they offer toll free phone numbers and also offer an address that questions and concerns can be submitted to. Other information to look for is how detailed their banking information is and what types of lending institutions back them.
Life is full of risks and all casino games are considered games of risk. Do your homework before you join an online betting site and make sure they are secure. Knowing this information should allow you the luxury of playing and have a great time winning money and prizes. We all need to have some fun.
