Sports Betting – If-win Bets

If-win bets are based on the results of one particular game. Bettors wager a fixed amount on one team in an If-win bet. If that team wins or the game is tied, then another fixed amount – up to the original amount – is bet on a different team.

 

Your first wager must win in order for you to have action on the remaining wagers. If the first wager loses, there is No Action thereafter. You cannot have duplicate teams in the same If-win wager.

 

Sports Betting – Payoffs and Odds

The payoff for football, basketball, and hockey is $100 for every $110 wagered, unless otherwise noted. Therefore, $110 will be wagered if you specify a $100 straight bet.

 

At odds of 100/110, only 52.5% of your bets have to win for you to overcome the bookmaker’s profit and break even. As a result, the bettor only need a very small edge to become a winner. Some sports bettors win 55- or even 60% or their bets.

 

Parlay bets are another story. The actual odds of picking two winners is 3 to 1, but a typical payout is 2.6 to 1. This gives the sportsbook a 10% advantage, and that’s too much! Worse still, the odds usually get even longer when you add more games to your parlay. In a nutshell, it’s best to avoid parlay bets.

 

Sports Betting – Exotic Bets

Sportsbooks often post odds and accept wagers on a variety of other activities – just to keep life interesting.

 

For example, you may be able to place a bet on who will win the Presidential race or the Best Actor award at the Oscars. The oddsmaker sets the conditions and odds for these bets.

 

Many exotic bets are offered at 110 to 100 odds, but some will be offered at better or worse odds, depending on the bet.

Craig Levett Interview about Casino

CHUCK – Pyramid Casino is offering some sizable bonuses right now. Let’s hear the details.

CRAIG – I think our bonuses are the best on the Web. Right now we offer $50 free with a minimum deposit $50 and a 20% bonus on deposits over $250. Special bonuses are available for deposits over $1000. And no matter how much you deposit you’re entered in our draw to win a Porsche Boxster.

Have you had any problems with “bonus abuse”?

Not really. Some players make deposits, wager the minimum required, then withdraw. But that’s the name of the game.

Pyramid provides Java games as well as download games. Which is more popular?

Our download games are more popular because we offer more games in the download package. But we just launched the brand new Beyond2000 games on our site and they’re fantastic. The games aren’t available for real money wagers yet but players can come in and give them a test drive. We hope to be accepting real money bets on the new games by the end of October.

In addition to the new games, we have some other exciting things in the works: We soon hope to be offering Pyramid Casino credit cards that will make it incredibly fast and easy for players to collect their winnings.

How does that work?

The player simply applies for the card, then when they request a payout, we credit it to that card. Then you can access the funds through an ATM or other banking service.

So payouts will be instantaneous?

With this system payouts should take less than 24 hours. We’re still working out the details but I really hope we can implement this soon.

What else do you have in the works?

We will soon be increasing our deposit limits, at the request of our players. Players will be able to deposit up to $3000 per day and $15,000 per month. We have lots more news and I invite online players to check out the News and Info Section at our site for the latest.

Dublin’s Merrion Casino

U2’s Edge Could be a Player

Last month the Merrion Casino played host to the rock group U2 for a night. The group had been in town performing live from their studios for a Radio 1 special earlier in the evening.

 

“We did have an inkling they were coming,” said Mags Manton, cardroom manager at the venue. “But they had asked for their visit to be kept under wraps with no press or cameras.

 

“Although it was only a brief stay, ‘The Edge’ [a band member] showed more than a passing interest in Texas hold’em, and I’d say there is every chance we might be seeing him again soon.”

 

Dealer’s Choice

The Merion has become the first Irish venue to offer dealer’s choice games as opposed to the traditional hold’em, four-card Omaha, or a round of each. The newly introduced games are seven-card stud, five-card Omaha, and four-card Irish, all high only.

 

Meanwhile, an extremely large cash game is being staged at the venue on Tuesday nights. Unfortunately, entry is limited — as it is played and organised exclusively by the Chinese community — and one can only speculate on what type of poker is actually played. Basically, it starts with a left-handed deal, it’s noisy, and things get more and more confused from that point on.

 

Automatic Shuffle Means More Play

More hands per hour are likely to be played at the Merrion in the future with the introduction of automatic shuffling machines. “We have taken just one automated shuffler on a trial basis,” explained Mags Manton. “Should they go down well with the players, we will use them on all tournament tables and possibly on the cash-game tables.

 

“The shufflers should not be a distraction, as they will work under the table and they allow far more hands to be played per hour, because they shuffle one deck as another is being dealt.”

 

Beginners Night

The Merrion’s general manager, Dara Hanlon, is hosting small-stakes cash game nights for beginners on Mondays and Thursdays. “The sit down is just 50 and the …

PayPal Rolls Dice on Judi Slot Online Gambling

PayPal’s not just for buying Pez dispensers on eBay any more. The popular Internet payment service is quickly becoming the currency of choice at many online casinos.

Nearly 500 gambling sites signed up to accept PayPal in the first quarter this year, almost doubling the company’s roster of such merchants, which stood at 1,022 as of March 31, according to PayPal.

Unfortunately for PayPal, its booming online gambling business may be illegal in the United States.

“If you help to facilitate or promote gambling, you could be found guilty of breaking the law. We’re trying to get the message out to intermediaries that there’s real liability there,” said Ken Dreifach, head of the Internet bureau at New York State’s office of the attorney general. New York estimates that offshore online gambling sites soak Americans for $4 billion annually.

While efforts to pass federal laws specifically prohibiting online gambling have stalled, New York’s saber rattling impressed Citibank. The nation’s biggest credit card issuer announced earlier this month that it has agreed to ban the use of its credit cards for Internet gaming. In doing so, Citibank belatedly joined Bank of America, Fleet, MBNA, Chase Manhattan and several other major banks that have established policies forbidding their credit card holders from placing online bets.

Now, in their quest to protect citizens from the “pernicious” effects of online gambling, New York and other state and federal regulators are also turning their attention to non-bank financial services such as PayPal, according to Dreifach.

PayPal officials declined comment on the company’s role in online gambling, citing a mandated quiet period in the run-up to its impending secondary stock offering. But documents filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission reveal that PayPal is well aware of the dangers of servicing gaming sites, which it terms “higher risk” accounts.

PayPal’s latest IPO filing acknowledges that its business with online casinos could be jeopardized by their “uncertain” legal status, and could expose it to “civil and criminal lawsuits, administrative action, and prosecution for, among other things, money laundering or for aiding and abetting violations of law.”

Togel Gambling ships hit troubled waters

Among possible losers if the slots referendum passes are gaming-boat operators. At least one already is fighting to survive.

 

Moe Noonan, 83-year-old Hollywood resident and hard-core gambler, boards a gaming ship five days a week for the pleasure of sitting at a blackjack table for a few hours.

 

Noonan, though, hates taking an hourlong boat trip to international waters before he’s able to gamble.

 

”It’s a pain,” he barked the other day before sailing on the St. Tropez in Port Everglades. “At least at a casino, after two hours I can go. I can’t drive home from the boat. I’ve got to stay there.”

 

Gambling boats could be big losers if residents in Miami-Dade and Broward vote March 8 in favor of permitting slot machines at seven racetracks and jai-alai frontons.

 

Noonan says he’s voting for it. The gambling cruise is a five-hour or more commitment. At a racetrack or fronton, he could come and go as he pleases.

 

He figures if if slots are approved it’s only a matter of time before blackjack tables show up alongside the slots.

 

South Florida’s ”cruise to nowhere” businesses are already sailing in choppy financial seas. In the past year, the boats were battered by an unprecedented hurricane season, paid higher fuel costs and were dealt a formidable rival in the $410 million Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood.

 

Three South Florida Togel gaming ships reported a drop-off in customers, including one that lost more than a third of its business.

 

St. Tropez Casino Cruises this month became the latest in a procession of casino-boat operators that have sought shelter from creditors by filing for bankruptcy protection. Some see the threat from slots as enough to sink the entire industry in South Florida.

 

The bankruptcies indicate that the cruise boats are often a marginal business, said Bob Sturges, president of Coral Gables-based Sturges Hospitality Consulting. He is a consultant to Flagler Dog Track — one of the beneficiaries if voters approve slots — and advised Dania Beach-based SunCruz Casinos’ unsecured creditors …

Blatter the clown Togel Hongkong prince of football

 

 

Blatter.Sepp Blatter’s comments to a Brazilian magazine prove once and for all he is not fit to run football.

 

“We have bad losers in FIFA,” the FIFA President told Estado de Sao Paolo. “This animosity comes from England,” he went on. “Interesting is the timing of the accusations. It was just around the time when they·failed to win host rights to the 2018 World Cup…All this has been an act of revenge for having lost the FIFA Presidency in 1974 to Joao Havelange. Still, they cannot accept that they no longer control FIFA. Since they Togel Hongkong cannot regain the Presidency, they decided they would try to destroy it.”

 

The words of a mad conspiracy theorist. The surge in reports of FIFA corruption came it is true around last year’s World Cup vote but that was because both 2018 (Russia) and 2022 (Qatar) seemed highly suspicious choices to any fair-minded watcher.

 

How then to explain the head of the German F.A. and Karl-Heinz Rummenige calling for Blatter’s head recently? The fact is England has the most active investigative journalism and endemic FIFA corruption is something Blatter has presided over and allowed to fester.

 

The Football Association and the British media has no desire other than a trustworthy governing body for the sport it invented. Under Blatter, the FIFA Ex.Co. has looked like an FBI’s most wanted list of felons: Warner, Texeira, Leoz, Bin-Hammam, Blazer (pic) and Grondona for starters.

 

If Blatter really believes in transparency and honest management, let him release the judicial verdict on the ISL collapse which languishes in a courthouse in Zug, Switzerland.

 

The F.A. however should look themselves in the mirror for shamefully u-turning to back Blatter in his initial bid for the Presidency, betraying the support of the honest Swede Lennart Johansson. How foolish do they appear now that deep anti-English feeling pervades FIFA corridors.

 

Recent stirrings from Germany suggest that is the country from which a successful anti-Blatter movement should stem.

 

 

The two giants won 5-0 and 6-0 respectively on the opening day …

51 Togel Singapore and counting

 

 

51 and counting.As if FIFA were not in enough hot water already over goal-line incidents.

 

In an interview with Germany’s Focus magazine, President Sepp Blatter made an extraordinary admission that football’s governing body was considering abolishing draws and extra-time in World Cup finals matches.

 

According to Blatter’s admission, penalty shoot-outs could replace ties in the group games, while, mirabile dictu, the ‘golden goal’ could make a return to the knock-out stages in order to spice up extra-time before another shoot-out, if necessary.

 

What has prompted this sudden revelation of another potential volte-face, following FIFA’s u-turn on technology last week?

 

Blatter is presumably reacting to the meagre 2.27 goals-per-game average from the 2010 World Cup, the second-lowest on record, narrowly beating Italia ’90’s 2.21 haul.

 

The opening round of two games per group yielded only 1.6 goals on average, with nothing beyond Germany’s 4-0 trouncing of Australia to write home about Togel Singapore. The tournament was dull in footballing terms, with the exception of Germany’s brief but fantastic foray to the semi-finals, which yielded a rich harvest of breakaway goals and sent the lumbering old battleships of England and Argentina spiraling to the bottom with aplomb.World Cup.

But a resoundingly negative final littered with bookings, gamesmanship and brutal tackles put an unhappy seal on what should have been a carnival of football. At the climax of Sepp’s big show, the watching world was left unhappy and even the winners Spain took their crown having netted fewer times (eight in seven games) than any previous champions. Blatter felt responsible.

 

South Africa after all was the President’s baby from the moment he first garnered African votes to win the top job in football with the promise of a World Cup hosting in return. Perhaps he is over-reacting to the bad impression the finals left on the field, or indeed looking to be a pro-active president as a re-election looms in 2011, although his throne looks safe.

 

With UEFA increasingly strutting its stuff and steaming ahead with its own innovations such as the extra …

Three-way race for the J. Togel Hongkong League title

 

 

And then there were three. Two familiar contenders, one plucky outsider and four league games are all that stand between Kashiwa Reysol, Gamba Osaka, Nagoya Grampus and the J. League title.

 

Autumn is especially beautiful across the Kantō Plain, when the deciduous leaves fall and a mellow sunlight light frames the back streets and alleys of one of the world’s most populous regions. That’s true even in the gritty industrial Chiba town of Kashiwa, where the locals are hoping their promoted upstarts can win Togel Hongkong back to back championships.

 

Kashiwa Reysol coasted through J2 last season, holding off the challenge of Ventforet Kofu to win the second division by ten points. At the helm was grizzled Brazilian coach Nelsinho, whose association with Japanese football is so lengthy his first club Verdy was still based in Kawasaki. The much-travelled tactician won the J. League with Verdy and later took over at the club formerly known as Nagoya Grampus Eight, before embarking on a peripatetic waltz around his native Brazil.

 

He’s back in the J. League now and Nelsinho’s knowledge of Brazilian has proved especially useful in the realm of player recruitment. In 2010 he signed Leandro Domingues from Bahia club Vitoria and watched contentedly as the playmaker steered the Sun Kings to the second tier title. This year he drafted in veteran Jorge Wagner from Sao Paulo and the versatile attacking talent has produced a stellar campaign. Add to that the goals of strikers Junya Tanaka and Hideaki Kitajima and it’s no surprise Kashiwa’s sheer attacking strength has propelled them to the top of the table.

 

Standing in Kashiwa’s way are defending champions Nagoya Grampus. The Aichi side broke their long trophy drought by winning the J. League for the first time last season, employing the not-so-novel tactic of simply signing the best players from rival teams.

 

Former Urawa Reds talisman Marcus Tulio Tanaka and ex-Yokohama F. Marinos defender Hayuma Tanaka were joined this season by one-time Shimizu S-Pulse star Jungo Fujimoto and ex-Vissel Kobe speedster Kensuke Nagai – widely regarded as one …
