CURACAO — Last week, Jackpot Madness casinos awarded a record-breaking $1,379,637 to 17 lucky players, including an incredible $520,625.09 to Treasure Nile champion Mitchel C and $394,658.30 to Major Millions winner Mary H.
On Friday, June 28th, the highest ever Treasure Nile jackpot was won by Mitchel C, who won an incredible $520,625.09 at 7 Sultans Casino. Mitchel was the second player to hit it big on Jackpot Madness that week, hot on the heels of Mary H, who became the second winner on the all-new Major Millions slot. Mary raked in $394,658.30 at All Slots Casino, leaving her in shock! And their lucky streak continues: like all Jackpot Madness winners, Mitchel’s and Mary’s huge jackpots are being paid out to them in one cash payment.
Treasure Nile and Major Millions are two of the 11 most popular progressive games on the web, featured on Jackpot Madness. Since Treasure Nile’s introduction one year ago, the popular Egyptian-themed slot has paid out over $10,500,000 to 100 happy winners. Major Millions is a new addition to the Jackpot Madness collection and has proved hugely popular since its introduction in April. No wonder – this progressive slot starts at a massive $250,000 and can reach jackpots of over $1 million! The first Major Millions winner won the biggest ever online jackpot, just a month ago – an incredible $1,594,649.
At Jackpot Madness (www.jackpotmadness.com), the Internet’s largest gaming portal, wins over $100,000 are becoming more and more common as thousands of players worldwide catch the Jackpot Madness fever. As more new progressive games are added, jackpots have been climbing at a record pace, reaching remarkable, six figure amounts on a regular basis.

Being a slot machine player, do you think it’s impossible to win a jackpot? Actually, that does not depend on you. Mostly everything depends on luck. So, in order to win you should hit a winning combination that will be shown on the screen of a slot machine. There are several slot machine types, divided into the following categories:
number of reels
number of pay lines
other winning functions
Those slot machines with 3 reels are called “3 reel slots” and are considered simple. Since there are only three wheels you get more chances to hit a winning combination, than if there were four or five. Whether there is a button on the machine or a handle at the side of it, they are made to make reels spin.
Some people prefer to play offline slot machines, while other are hooked up on online ones. They claim that gaming online is more exciting than gaming offline. But the one true thing is that online slot machines can never ever be cheated. Some people think they can cheat slot machines at a land-based casino, though they rarely succeed.
What’s the preparation for the Togel Hongkong game? First of all, make sure you know how to play it in order not to be bewildered after throwing coins into a slot machine. If your goal is highest payouts then you have to keep to small bets. If you bet much that does not mean you will get a huge payback. You can lose everything you have immediately without any problem. Control all your actions; otherwise even one of the easiest casino games will lead you to big losses.
How to cheat a slot machine?
If you think of cheating a casino, you’re not the first …

Just over a year after making a $1.2 billion bet by opening a mega-resort on the Las Vegas Strip, Aladdin Gaming filed for bankruptcy protection on Friday and secured new funding from creditors.
The company said the widely anticipated bankruptcy filing will allow the Aladdin Resort and Casino to stay in business while developing a plan to reorganize. A group of lenders led by Bank of Nova Scotia agreed to provide $9 million in funding to meet short-term cash needs for the casino and stood ready to loan an additional $41 million as needed, Aladdin said. The Aladdin has struggled since opening on Aug. 18, 2000 and critics have said the massive casino was poorly designed. The problems for the highly-leveraged resort were compounded by the Sept. 11 air attacks on New York and Washington and the subsequent slump in travel, analysts said. The casino laid off about 500 workers or about a sixth of its staff this month. Last week Richard Goeglein, who had run the company since the old Aladdin was demolished in 1998 to make way for the new resort on the Strip, left his job.
Aladdin Gaming did not disclose its assets and liabilities in its court filing in U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Nevada on Friday, but will file a separate disclosure form with the Securities and Exchange Commission on Monday with that detail, company spokesman Fred Lewis said. Park Place Entertainment, the No. 1 gaming company which owns neighboring Caesars Palace, holds about one-third of Aladdin’s outstanding bonds and emerges as a key player in its reorganization. Deborah Munch, a spokeswoman for Park Place, said the
casino operator has not disclosed the amount of its holding, but said the stake was taken when Aladdin’s bonds were already at a “substantial” discount, …

There is no simple formula that will give you an exact figure of a game’s profitability in relation to the rake or time charges. There are some things to consider however, that should allow you to make an educated decision on whether to play in a given game. You must consider the cost and how it is collected from the players, as well as the players and how much of a favorite to beat them that you are. Also, you must consider the action at the table and average pot size in relation to the charge and how it is collected.
First off, time charges are going to be better than rakes in most cases, but possibly not all (if the time was really high this might not be true). I have never seen a game with a time charge that I wished had a rake, in my experience it is always cheaper to pay time than rake. I play low limits in a casino where the time charge on 3-6 kill Holdem is 3$/half hour. That is a fantastic deal and is the lowest cost I have seen anywhere. On 4-8 kill the time is 4$/half hour. That is still well within the limits of beatability, and it is still cheaper than most raked games by a significant margin. The 8-16 game also has a 4$/half time charge, making it the best deal in the house, costing you only 1 small bet per hour. Not too shabby. This is the primary reason why I play almost exclusively in this cardroom, the other choices I have are all dropped games and are considerably more expensive. Time charges hurt all players equally whether they are loose or tight.
If the game is raked, you are probably paying quite a bit more …
I have played poker in over 100 cardrooms, in at least a dozen states, and six different countries. Inevitably, the more places that I play, the broader the range of inconsistencies I encounter with regard to house rules. These inconsistencies are confusing not only to most visitors, but to many local players, as well.
Wherever I go, the issue that seems to create the most trouble is the interpretation of player action. Such interpretation is not an exact science. Did a player intend to fold? Did a player intend to check? Did a player intend to call? Did a UFA player intend to raise? Once, I saw a floorman called to the table after one player made a subtle hand gesture. The gesture could have been interpreted either way. Three players thought the player checked. Three other players thought the player moved his hand unintentionally. The players started arguing. The blank look on the floorman’s face said it all. What really happened? It depends on who you ask.
Floor people are forced to make their judgments based on eyewitness accounts, well after the fact. It’s virtually impossible to make decisions that treat all players fairly or take into account what may have been an involuntary human response to the pressures and distractions of the cardroom. Much of the confusion about player intent would be resolved by instituting a simple change inside all cardrooms. In fact, if what I’m about to propose would be implemented universally, I believe player that disputes and floor decisions would be reduced significantly. Questions would rarely be raised about a player’s intent or action.
Here’s the idea: Place a large oval on top of the felt that rings the entire table. This means a thin white line separates players from the pot. Any chips that move …
The National Poker Championships have just concluded at Casino Canberra with many of the familiar faces filling the places in all of the events. Jason Gray took out the $2000 buy in No limit Holdem event that attracted 24 of Australia’s best tournament players. Billy “The Croc” Argyros was good enough to finish second after a great week of tournaments winning the overall points score.
While the heavyweights of Poker were fighting it out in Canberra, a dealers tournament was being planned in Melbourne by one of Crowns ex-dealers Matt “The Craw” O’Meara. A total of 24 casino staff (past and present) played in the $200 buyin event that had been planned for over 12 months. Unfortunately at this time I was in a wonderful place called Nundroo and was unable to play. As it turned out, of the 24 players that entered this tournament around 20 were Poker dealers who were yet again outplayed by an “outsider”. Minh “The Merciless” was just too good on the day and gave The Crown Poker dealers another lesson on tournament play.
I am sure that with all the lessons that the Crown dealers have been given lately they are due to put some of this experience into practice and may actually play to their potential in the New Zealand Poker Championships that will commence on 15th March at Christchurch Casino. This tournament is sure to be a sellout as places are filling fast with locals and many players that will again make the journey across the Tasman.
Christchurch Casino has always been very hospitable to ligaz11 Poker players and I am sure that 2003 will be no exception. Anyone that chooses to attend this event I am sure will have a great time either in the tournaments, live games or swapping stories …
WASHINGTON — Sen. Jon Kyl, R-Ariz., said Tuesday he is likely to reintroduce legislation this year to ban gambling on the Internet, but not until after the Senate completes its consideration of the nomination of former Sen. John Ashcroft for attorney general.
“I’d like to (reintroduce the bill). I’d like to get it passed,” Kyl said.
Kyl said he has not focused on the Internet legislation yet because as a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee he has taken a leading role in defending the nomination of Ashcroft, whose confirmation hearings began Tuesday.
The committee may schedule several sessions to consider the Aschcroft nomination, a former Missouri Republican senator whose selection by President-elect Bush has raised the ire of a mix of liberal interest groups. There has been no indication of when the Senate might vote on him.
“First things first,” Kyl said. “I haven’t focused on (Internet gambling). We’re focused on these confirmations right now.”
In November, Kyl was pessimistic about moving an Internet kaya99 gambling ban through Congress after legislation failed in the 2000 session. He said then that Congress had missed its best chance to ban Internet gambling, which has mushroomed into a multi-billion dollar industry that draws concern from lawmakers who say it is ripe for scandal and is potentially corrupting for families.
Kyl’s bill cleared the Senate by a unanimous voice vote in November 1999. The House voted 245-159 for a similar proposal by Rep. Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., on July 17 of last year, but a two-thirds majority was needed under a fast-track procedure. Congress failed to take further action on either measure.
Kyl said Tuesday he may wait to see what happens to Goodlatte’s bill in the House before making a move in the Senate. He said he wants to talk to Goodlatte and …
At one time or another we’ve all needed to get up to speed on a subject ASAP. Basically you want to go from being a rookie to having a working knowledge in the shortest possible time. In these situations anything that can usher you up and over the learning curve is worth its weight in gold. The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Online Gambling by Mark Balestra is such a tool. Think I’m bluffing? Considering that I’ve been working in the online casino industry for almost two years now and much of what I’ve learned is found between the covers of Balestra’s humble tome, I don’t think I’m bluffing at all.
Beginning with the basics of what an online casino is, Balestra takes the reader through the learning process one step at a time.
Even if that was all the book offered, it would still be a worthy read for anyone in the industry and certainly for those considering online play. But where a book like this can really excel is by organizing the information so that it is easy to read, entertaining enough to keep us from nodding off, has enough pictures to give us a feel for the environment, summarizes the key points and indexes the material properly. Again, all that is here making this book one for the desk top as opposed to one for the public library. It’s a resource, albeit one that will see less use as the reader’s expertise develops.
As with any book about the Internet, it’s the leads to links and resources that can really make a difference for the beginner. After all, they’re being introduced to a part of the virtual world and the better the guide, the happier their journey will be. Balestra’s book provides ample references to fill anyone’s Favorites …
The Almighty has decided that He needs someone to clean up the Internet gambling scene and He’s appointed me! How would things look if, for one week, Max had carte blanc to remake Internet gambling?
The First Day: Let’s bring some light to bear on this good guys, bad guys issue right off the top. It’s Regulation time! In order to level the playing field and make sure that there is some hard and fast accountability Internet casinos must now be licensed by recognized national regulatory boards — Isle of Man, etc. No exceptions! If a casino isn’t licensed and regulated then it’s basically a pirate casino and the player is on their own.
Universal regulation would be good for the Situs Judi Slot Online Terpercaya players ’cause now they know who they can trust and they have the law to fall back on if they get screwed over. It’s good for the casinos because the regulatory process legitimizes them. Complaints from the casino operators about fees, etc? Forgettaboutit! We all know that properly run casinos make pots of money and the licensing, taxes, etc that the casinos have to bear are not going to significantly impact that. And of course it’s good for the regulatory jurisdictions because casinos pay taxes and licensing fees. Nuff said!
The Second Day: On this day I open the firmament and bring high speed Web access for all! The Internet can be a beautiful thing but at 56k it’ll take you a long time to see that. You may grow old in the process, very old.
56k is to the Internet what Tomb Raider is to a good sex life: it may seem good enough at the time but once you’ve left it behind you’ll know just how not good it really was!
