Gambling online is one of the biggest money making industries on the internet. The biggest advantage that online gambling offers is to those people who are unable to visit real casinos. But it is very important to be prepared for what to expect when you visit an online casino. To make the online gambling experience fruitful and enjoyable here is a step by step guide to gambling online.

3) Before registering with an online casino find out about its popularity ratings and the number of games it has to offer.

4) Find out about the different ways in which you can deposit money with an online casino. Different online casinos offer different methods of depositing money with them. They have different methods of payouts as well.

5) Choose your online casino and play with the free offers that the casinos give to new players. Most casinos do that and use the offer to practice the game of your choice. Many casinos help train players with fake money.

6) Know the rules of the game that you intend playing in the online casino.

7) Read about the different strategies that are available in connection with the game of your choice.

8) Get familiar with the terms used in the game you have chosen for gambling online.

Always have a good strategy and that can happen only if you are well informed. Remember knowledge is power.

Start playing after registering and depositing the money but remember you have to be 18 years or older. The gambling experience in an online casino is great as you are there playing without the distractions caused by noise.

Online Gambling

Why You Must Have an Online Gambling Strategy Before Playing

Start Winning Big Today

Every online gambler must have an online gambling strategy before starting to gamble online. Anyone who gambles without a strategy is bound to lose more money and gamble way beyond their means. In order to avoid such mishaps, it is better to have an online gambling strategy which helps you to decide how much to spend, what is the losing limit, how big or small the bets should be and what games to play. An online gambling strategy will also allow you to decide the best way in which each game can be played. Different gambling strategies have to be formulated for each type of game. For instance, the gaming strategy for online craps cannot be used for online blackjack as they are very different games. Each game must be approached in a different way.

A strategy will assist you to decide on the gambling budget. An online gambler must decide how much they are willing to spend while gambling online and must stick to that amount. Once that amount is spent, the gambler must stop gambling. Not only that but one must decide how much money to spend on each game and calculate the total amount. This amount must be fixed as the budgeted amount for that session.

A good strategy will also help you to decide the losing limit before you start to gamble. Fixing a losing limit is very important because you must decide on the maximum amount you can afford to lose while gambling online. Suppose you fix your losing limit as $500, then you should stop gambling once you have lost the $500. Without a proper strategy, you would not be able to fix a losing limit. An online gambling strategy instills discipline in an online gambler. An online gambling strategy induces an online gambler to stop gambling once he or she has reached the losing limit.

A strategy would furthermore allow you to decide which games to play and how much to bet on each game and you will be able to analyze your strengths and weaknesses as it relates to a particular game. You would be able to identify in which game you are strong and in which one you are not so strong. When you are able to identify this you will become a much better player over time thus enabling you to win consistently. In order to make all these decisions, it is very important to have an online gambling strategy which works. This means you should have no qualms about changing and amending your strategy as you go along until you have perfected it.

NFL Weekly Picks

NFL Weekly Expert Picks - Discover How to Get NFL Picks and How to Create Your Own

NFL weekly expert picks are highly sought after and quite often you must pay a monthly fee for them. But did you know that you can actually create your own and make consistent long term profits? Find out how in this article.

Where Do Picks Come From?

All good picks are the result of a good system. You might think that picks can just be made by someone who has a lot of knowledge and experience.

Whilst this is true to a degree, even the best expert is prone to making errors in judgement due to his emotions. He may even create false-logic to justify his emotional decisions. I have seen this time and time again.

A good system is not a machine - it is simple a set of rules created by an expert that must be obeyed without fail.

So what essential ingredients should any good system have?

Staking Plan

Any good system should have an adequate staking plan. Let's look to the typical gambler who is a loser, for a bad staking plan.

The typical gambler will bet a lot of money on a game. He doesn't want to bet small because that means he can't win big.

He might get lucky but when he loses he will bet even more on the next game to "make it all back". The bookies love this and have made a lot of cash out of guys who do this and eventually lose it all again.

A good staking plan is a game of "risk management". You should only bet a small amount each time. You can modify it according to the rules of the system but, in general, the amount should be low.

Here's why: even the best pro-gambler with the best analysis can go through a tough patch where he gets a large losing streak. There is no flaw in his system, it is simply the way the world works.

By betting smaller than the typical gambler, his balance can survive these moments.

Value Betting

The hallmark of any good picks are that they represent "value". This means that with every pick, the bookie has underestimated the strength of the team. This way, you get much more favorable odds and will win in the long term.

A lot of losing gamblers make the mistake of always going for the favorite in the belief that it is a profitable strategy. There is no reason why it is better to bet on the favorite versus the non-favorite. It all depends on the odds and whether the bookie is giving you any value or not.

When loser gamblers bet on the favorites, they will win more. This is called a high "strike rate". But the strike rate has nothing to do with long term profits (the yield). If you are not getting value in your picks then you can have a high strike rate but your losses will be much larger than all the small wins added up - this is a negative yield i.e. you are losing money!

Only a logical and analytical approach to gambling can ever succeed. Discover how a mathematical wizard created his own system that wins 97% of his bets at

The Advantages of Lottery Lucky Dips

For the benefit of those who aren't familiar with the term, a Lucky Dip is a randomly generated lottery entry. Instead of the player choosing their own numbers, software running on the lottery terminal automatically selects numbers on the player's behalf.

The actual odds of you winning a jackpot using a Lucky Dip are exactly the same as when you choose lottery numbers for yourself, but there are other advantages that arguably give Lucky Dip players a clear edge...

The first advantage is that Lucky Dip entries really are random. Whereas many other players will be using birthdays, hot numbers and cold numbers to choose their numbers, you will be relying on nothing more than a random number generator. That means you will be less likely to have to share a lottery jackpot if your numbers come up than those who follow a well-known list of hot and cold numbers.

Some lottery players like to spend hours studying statistics and frequency tables in order to try and pick the numbers that have the best chance of winning. Whilst those people are free to spend their free time doing whatever they like, their extensive study doesn't change their odds of winning one iota. Buying a Lucky Dip gives you just as much chance of winning as a statistical enthusiast, and you only need to invest a minute of your time to buy one!

People who choose their own lottery numbers often have to queue for several minutes - and sometimes longer - so that they can complete their play slip manually before presenting it to their lottery retailer. Conversely, someone who plays Lucky Dip numbers can go directly to the retailer and ask for a Lucky Dip ticket. Even better, those who buy lottery tickets online can obtain all the Lucky Dip entries they need at the click of a mouse!

Buying Lucky Dip tickets also prevents you from getting superstitious about having to play certain sets of numbers repeatedly. Although there are a few people who have played the same numbers for years and eventually won a jackpot, there are far more Lucky Dip jackpot winners, so superstition really doesn't pay.

Whichever way you choose your lottery numbers, you need to be extremely lucky to hit the lottery jackpot, so why not just accept that fact and buy a Lucky Dip ticket to start with? If you get lucky and become a multi-millionaire then that's great; but if you don't then at least you won't have wasted any time or energy picking lottery numbers of your own!

Survey #2 Says - Which Hand is the Toughest to Play in a Poker Tournament?

In the previous survey, I asked which hand tournament poker players hated the most. The winning hand was pocket Jacks.

However, in that survey, I left off A-K.

A-K or Big Slick used to be called "Walking Back to Houston." From what I've read, the reason it was called "Walking Back to Houston" is that in the big stakes games played in Dallas, players from Houston would come into town and play A-K strong. Unfortunately, they'd run into a pair of aces and go bust.

In this survey, I asked players which hand they would prefer to be dealt in the middle of a poker tournament. Again, it is your typical no limit tournament. You have an average chip stack, and are in middle position. Everyone folds to you.

Which hand would you prefer to get in this situation?

A-K unsuited or J-J?

Okay, before you read on, which hand would you prefer? Here you are acting first.

The results were as follows:

A-K unsuited 91% J-J 9%

Were you surprised by the results? Were you surprised anyone would pick pocket Jacks?
I am sure the reason players hate pocket Jacks is because they have experienced a card hitting the flop that is higher than a Jack way to often. It will happen over 65% of the time. Also, I am sure that they have experienced times when no card was higher than a Jack, but they ran into their opponent hitting a set on the flop. Not good. But it's happened to all of us.

"Tournament Poker: 101 Winning Moves" reveals the best way to play A-K, pocket Jacks and a total of 101 winning plays based on what the Tournament Poker Pros know. Want to discover what you need to know to win?

Mitchell Cogert is the author of "Tournament Poker: 101 Winning Moves." It is the only reference book to reveal the plays the Pros use to win a poker tournament. These plays are based on reviewing 20 years worth of tournament poker strategies and by actual play against Daniel Negreanu, Erick Lindgren, David Pham and other top pros. The book is highly rated with 5 out of 5 stars on amazon.

How to Manage Your Sports Betting Bankroll - Essential For Long Term Profits

If you want to profit in the long term from betting on sports, then it does not matter how good your picks are if you do not use good bankroll management. In this article, I'll share with you 3 great ways to manage your bankroll.

Constant Percentage Betting

This is the most common way to manage your bankroll. Do not make the fatal mistake that many "gamblers" do which is to bet your entire account or even half of it on one game. These types of punters are always reloading their accounts and losing money, hand over fist for eternity! They are a bookie's dream!

Instead, you should bet only a small percentage. Even 10% is actually too much because a short run of events going against you can severely impact your balance and further increase your risk.
Most pro-bettors will bet about 2% of their balance, of what they can afford to lose. This might sound small but this is low risk and will allow you to realise your long term profit potential.

Dynamic Scaling

This is a further step from constant percentage betting. Let's say you start with $100 in your account and you bet $2 per bet. When your account rises to a balance of $150, the $2 bets are no longer representing 2% of your total balance. You are actually not taking enough risk and your profits are less than what they could be.

So you should scale up your bets dynamically as your balance changes. In this case you should now be betting $3 each time instead.

Constant Profit Betting

Some bettors (not many) will instead go with constant profit. So if they are betting on a match with really long odds, they will stake less. If they are betting on a hot favourite (short odds) then they will bet more.

They will do it in a way so that the winnings will be the same every time.

The downside is that the stake on each bet (the risk) will be different for each bet. If you go with this strategy I advise you set a maximum risk limit e.g. 5% of your balance.

The only way to win consistently at sports betting is to have a logical, scientific approach. Discover the explosive secrets of how to win 97% of your sports bets from a statistics doctorate and betting professional at

Playing Roulette Or Dancing With the Devil

Even the name roulette has a risque sound to it - and indeed the origins of roulette are steeped in diabolical intent. It is usually agreed that the first roulette wheel was invented in 1655 - a fine experiment in attempting to discover a perpetual motion machine by Blaise Pascal playing roulette a brilliant mathematician. I really think he came pretty close as I was certain the wheel was never going to stop when I placed my largest ever wager on a roulette wheel in the Las vegas Hilton last year.

Unfortunately the wheel did eventually stop and with blatant disregard to what I thought were the laws of probability it landed on black for the 6th spin in a row. But alas I was wrong the rules I was playing to were available on "how to make a killing in Vegas" type websites all over the internet which were mostly made up - in retrospect I would have been much better looking at mathematical case studies at universities and colleges. So if you want some handy tips on playing roulette -

always play on a European Table - the odds are way better
always have a goal - if you win or lose 'x' amount -that's the end of the night
don't drink too much when gambling winning streaks can turn into losing streaks very quickly

Have fun don't let gambling run your life

If you end up playing roulette - remember to minimise the house edge - if you have any choice play at a European table - it has one less '0' which makes a significant difference, But anyway have fun - there is certainly no truth to the rumour that the Blanc brothers sold their souls for the secrets of roulette before opening their first casino. My christian buddy has also kindly pointed out that if you add up all the numbers on a roulette wheel - 1-37 - you get the number 666 - the number of the beast apparently. Well I'm going to risk it because it's fun !

If you're looking to make money out of roulette it might be worth checking out the roulette killer software. It currently has a money back guarantee so you can check without any risk. I'm currently making enough money with it to carry on risking dancing with the devil!

Roulette Killer

All the best
