4 Gambling Blunders Everyone Has Made

Posted by & filed under blackjack, casino, Entertainment, slots.

Sometimes it’s hard to let go of the little mistakes in life and laugh it off. When it comes to

gambling at an online casino, everyone has had their own fair share of gaffes. Have you ever

done one of these? Ready or not, here come the 4 mistakes that gamblers make every day.

1. Blunder-Betting

Have you ever clicked on a square too many times and ended up dropping way too many chips

on an unreliable bet? Sometimes the bet goes through and everything is okay, but that sort of

thing barely ever sticks around in the memory banks. No, the crispest memories are of having a

mix-up with the mouse and the display, and losing everything. Not to worry, there are plenty of

happy accidents that have simply been forgotten.

2. Crashing a Winning Streak

A winning streak lasts exactly as long as a winning streak lasts, and ends the moment the streak

is over. These sorts of things are not exactly predictable, but that doesn’t stop everyone from

trying every now and then. If you have ever ridden a winning streak until the bitter, unexpected

end with every chip on the line, then you have crashed a winning streak.

3. Overthinking

Think blackjack. You have 19 in your hand, and there are voices screaming in your head to

stand, but then something in you that the dealer has 20. There is no rhyme or

reason to it, that person just seems to have 20, so you hit. Naturally, you overshoot 21 by a

longshot, and no one was holding 20 to begin with. This one can be very aggravating. After all,

the little voice in your head is supposed to be much more reliable than that.

4. Miss a Bonus

No joke, bonuses can be tricky. Sometimes a bonus only comes when the player deposits on a

certain day, or makes little deposits throughout the week, or do any number of convoluted things

just to get a little extra cash. Sometimes the bad luck comes in and then the bonuses never seem

to work. Rest assured, it happens to everyone.

Feeling better? This is not the last of the tiny blunders that gamblers sometimes make.

Remember not to take it too hard when things fall apart. After all, for every important bet that

you overthink, there are countless others doing the same. So get your mind straight and get playing at Planet 7 today

How to Get the Edge on Slot Machines

Posted by & filed under slots.

Slot Machine Guide
Slot machines are a classic gambling game for a reason. Unlike most table games, they offer the

chance to win an obscene amount of money. Most of the time, when someone plays the slots,

they leave with lighter pockets, but the chance is still there to hit the jackpot and win thousands

if not millions of dollars. The question is how to improve the odds of snagging the jackpot, and

how to hold onto the change until then.

1. Find real reels.

Once upon a time, the payoff from slot machines wasn’t half bad, and the jackpot wasn’t unheard

of. The odds were always in the casino’s favor, but the player still had a good fighting chance.

This was true, and remained true, until video slots came out. Electronic slots have two

advantages over the player. For one, they can have specific payouts, taking a nickel or so out of

the payout as if taxing the player for winning. Secondly, video slots can make jackpots even rarer

than the traditional mechanical slots because the designer can pick how often the jackpot will

show up. Long story short, finding an old, mechanical slot machine is the ticket to winning.

2. Check the jackpot payoff.

As a rule of thumb, the higher the jackpot, the rarer it is. Nothing is set in stone, and there are

bound to be exceptions every now and then, but it is safe to say that if a jackpot is in the

millions, the designers don’t want it coming up too often. It may be wise to seek out cheaper

jackpots, even if it means winning less money, because the odds of winning are likely much

3. Pace it out.

At the cost of one dollar per play, slot machines can get expensive. Thankfully, there are plenty

of slot machines that cost a much more reasonable amount. If penny slots don’t do the trick, then

something between nickel and quarter will work out perfectly. After all, the more times the reels

spin, the more chances there are to get the jackpot.

With all of this in mind, take to the casinos and get ready to make a difference in your slot

machine technique. Even the most minute changes to a playing style can improve the chances of

scoring the jackpot. Good luck, and don’t forget to make every spin count. Try Slots of Vegas today

The Science of Gambling Machine Noises

Posted by & filed under casino, slots.

Slot Machine GuideLike the sound of coffee pouring in the morning, slot machines and other electronic gambling

games have an iconic noise. Each machine makes a different set of noises, like a fingerprint. The

sound resonates with the game, makes it stand out, and encourages players to seek it out. These

sounds may seem superficial, but a lot of thought and research goes into creating the

individualized sounds for a gambling game. Let’s take a look.

The first ingredient is cheer. Like a chocolate factory out of a movie, sound engineers search for

a sound that exemplifies the experience a gambler feels when they win. This cheery sound plays

every time the player wins, and it makes the experience amazing. Players hear this sound over

and over, and subconsciously yearn to hear it again.

Next, this winning sound is broken down and changed into several different noises. These sounds

still remind the user of the desired sound, but don’t carry nearly as much weight. They sound

nice, but aren’t satisfying. These sorts of sounds are played whenever the player inserts money,

presses a button, turns the dial, or lets the reels spin. This way, the user feels a sense of

encouragement and continues to feel hopeful even during a losing streak.

The most delicate step of gambling machine sound design is choosing the failure noise. The

sound must feel negative and enhance the impact of a failed bet. It also must encourage trying

again. These sounds vary greatly and vastly change the flavor of the game. The fail sound may

be very quiet and unremarkable, making it easy to tune out so the player keeps betting and

betting. The sound may also be jarring or sad, carrying a lot of impact and egging on the user.

When a gambler picks out a gambling game, the sound effects may have a lot to do with the

choice. One user may like the background song and side sound effects, which put them in a good

mood. Another user may especially like the winning noise and want to hear it every time they

win. Others may select a gambling game for the noise it makes for losing. The right sound will

encourage anyone to keep coming back, whether it is positive and encouraging or negative and

exasperating.

The significance does not end with gambling, however. Knowing what they know, some

gamblers have used these rewarding noises for themselves. By recording these favorite noises

and playing it later, users can reward themselves for anything from eating a salad to getting up

on time. These noises don’t have to be there just for marketing. Rule of thumb: When something

works, use it.

Hit the Slots with a Smart Watch

Posted by & filed under blackjack, slots.

In this day and age, most casinos worth their salt have an online presence. Many successful

casinos operate entirely online, much like the news websites of the 21st century. As land-based

gambling turns obsolete, a new wave of technology is headed our way: gambling by smart

watch.

It is common for online casinos to have a mobile version. Our friends at Silver Oak Casino are

set up for gameplay on any device that plays flash. This means Androids and tablets as well as

desktop computers. Slots of Vegas is available on the iPhone and the Android, and is available at

the app store. Mobile apps can play any game a gambling website can, from slots to blackjack to

video poker, and on and on. There is an app for all things including bingo and keno, and all of it

is accessible with a quick search for available apps.

While the smartphone market has expanded and become commonplace, the smart watch business

is just beginning task manager online. The first smart watches were very simple. Their primary function was telling

the time and sending notifications. It was essentially a device for reminding the user to use their

phone more. Now the market is finally gaining momentum. Smart watches can play music, open

apps, and operate simple controls. The next thing in line is a watch that takes control of an app

from afar.

The main problem with the modern smart watch is it does not do much without the phone it is

linked to. It is an accessory for a device that does more than the watch can do on its own. There

are some apps, however, that don’t need a large screen or a lot of buttons. There are certain

games that can be played entirely on the smart watch, with the accompanying phone plugged in

yards away. In particular, these are blackjack and slot machines.

When playing blackjack, all the user needs to know is what cards they and the dealer have. The

only buttons they need to press are “hit” and “stand.” At a slot machine, the player can pick how

much they want to bet and when they want to spin, everything else is just decoration and

background noise.

If a game is simple enough, the entire experience can fit on a square inch screen on the player’s

wrist. It doesn’t work for every game, that’s for sure. A bingo card will never fit on a smart

watch screen, and there are too many options in a game of roulette for the playing experience to

be smooth enough. It takes a simple game with quick rules and easy gameplay.

As smart watches continue to find their place in the modern market, we can except to see a shift

in the smart watch’s independence. There will be several things that are quicker and easier on the

watch, even if it does have a tiny screen and no memory to speak of. In good time, there will be a

little something for the gamblers who want to play a quick game.

4 Things You Need to Know About Jackpots

Posted by & filed under slots.

Slot Machine GuideWinning a jackpot at a slot machine or in the lottery is the dream. Everyone who has enjoyed a

gambling game yearns to one day win the big money and live a new, grander life. The story is

well-known, but there are some things about jackpots that most people have no idea about. The

next time you spin the dial of a slot machine, take a look at this short list of little-known facts.

Who knows when it might come in handy.

1. Jackpots are paid over time.

The Mega Millions jackpot is not paid all at once, but in pieces over the years. 30 years to be

exact. This means that the money is not going anywhere, and even if you manage to spend the

whole thing, there will be another installment next year. There are upsides and downsides to

everything, but this essentially means that buying a mansion off the bat is out of the question,

and purchasing all the shares in a favorite company is also going to take a while.

2. The taxes are enormous.

The federal tax on a jackpot is 25%. This means that if a jackpot is a straight million dollars,

only $750,000 gets to the winner, and this is before state taxes kick in. The best states to win the

lottery in are California, Delaware, Florida, New Hampshire, Pennsylvania, South Dakota,

Tennessee, Texas, Washington, and Wyoming. In These 10 states, there is no tax on lottery

earnings. The worst state to win the lottery in is New York followed by Maryland and

Washington, D.C. In these states, more than a third of the total winnings go to taxes.

3. There is still time.

There is a reason that it is common practice for lotteries to offer the winners a full year to show

their winning tickets. Sometimes the winning numbers are called and no one comes forward.

Sometimes someone buys a lottery ticket and goes off to do other things without checking to see

if they won. Other winners know that they won right away but take the time to talk with a

financial advisor before claiming their prize. If a lottery goes by and no one claims the prize, it’s

time to go outside on a windy day and see if the winning ticket hits you in the face.

4. Everyone will know.

When someone wins the lottery, their name becomes public knowledge. The moment the winner

comes forward with the winning ticket, the lottery broadcasts that person’s name and possibly

their picture, backstory, and life dreams. Get ready to be famous, because everyone you know

will know you won.

Mobile Apps are Changing Slot Machines Forever

Posted by & filed under slots.

Slot Machine Guide

Over the span of 10 years, gambling has transformed from a taboo activity that can only be done

inside the walls of a casino to a casual game that can be accessed as easily as a text message.

This change would have never been possible without the emergence of gambling apps on mobile

devices in the year 2005. For the first time ever, slot machines are subject to public reviews and

ratings, with unforeseen consequences.

When slot machines could only be found in casinos, there was no telling which ones were more

likely to pay out. The interior of a casino holds rows upon rows of flashing, beeping machines,

each one more of a money vacuum than the last. From the moment slots went online, this had to

change.

Now the power rests in the hands of the player. If a player feels at all cheated or ripped off, a 1-

star review is at their fingertips. Just like bad Yelp reviews can drive entire restaurants out of

business, customer reviews in the app store have the power to drive an online casino to

extinction. Wise businesspeople have taken the hint and advertise their online slot machines as

having better odds than the ones in the casino. Slot machines that stick to terrible odds are on

their way out.

Think about the price of soda. A glass of soda costs a restaurant between 1¢ and 10¢, but they

charge the customers anywhere between $1 and $5. Most restaurants choose to charge their

customers as much as possible, but once one restaurant starts selling soda for $1, everyone starts

flocking to that restaurant and ignoring the rest. The other restaurants have a choice on their

hands: charge $1 for their soda or lose their business. The same is happening with slot machines.

A couple online casinos started moving the odds in favor of the player, and now all the others

must follow suit or be extinguished.

Since the dawn of electronic slot machines, the most successful games have been the loudest and

most colorful. All a machine needed to be successful was to grab attention. It didn’t even matter

if anyone ever won a jackpot. A spot in the app store means online casinos must compete head-

to-head and appease their customers before they land a 1-star review. The tides are turning, and

they are aimed in the direction of the user.

The Best Attitude for Every Gambling Game

Posted by & filed under blackjack, Craps, Entertainment, keno, Roulette, slots.

Gambling-superstitions

The theory has been proven again and again: attitude helps you win. The question is which

attitude to take. For every gambling game, there is an attitude that perfectly fits the ideal playing

style. Coming at the game from the right angle allows players to take control of the game, even if

they can’t control the dice.

Blackjack: Confident

Confidence is a magical feeling. In every situation, it encourages people to follow the course of

action that they believe is the best one. Confidence also sharpens the senses and improves math

skills. With a confident mindset, players will notice more, make better mathematical decisions,

and follow through better.

Roulette: Patient

The safest bets on Roulette have about a 50/50 chance of winning and very little payoff. This

makes for a very slow game with a lot of back and forth. An eager player might get tired of

collecting small sums and watching them disappear on the next spin. They may even go for one

of the numbers hoping for a stroke of luck, but the most likely result is a heaping pile of nothing.

Slots: Reckless

Who doesn’t want to turn all the dials to max and see how far it goes? On a slot machine, this is

actually a good idea. On any machine, the maximum bet is always the best one. Finally, cranking

it up and letting loose is the right choice. Try it now at Slots of Vegas.

Craps: Cautious

A cautious player knows that the next 7 is right around the corner. It’s tempting to leave the bets

out until the 7 is long overdue, but a cautious player gets a gut feeling when it is time to snatch

the chips away and let the 7 come up. A cautious player also chooses the option with better odds,

so might pick the dreaded Don’t Pass line and have better odds than the norm.

Video Poker: Cunning

A chip in the hand is worth more than two in the cards. A cunning player knows that if there is

already a winning option in the starting set, there is no point in trying to form a new one. Video

poker is best played with a mindset that knows the difference between greed and calculated risk,

when it’s time to go for something big, and when it’s time to play it safe.

Keno: Anything

Unlike most gambling games, keno is a game of pure luck. There are no decisions the player

must make which will change the course of the game. That means players can throw caution to

the wind and play however they want.

5 Facts About Slot Machines

Posted by & filed under slots.

Slot Machine Guide

The most popular casino game in the world – both online and land – is slots. But even with its increasing popularity, there are several myths and misconceptions about slot machines that players try and leverage to gain an advantage on the house.

Here are 5 facts about slot machines that may (or may not) help you take down the house and become the next slots millionaire.

Each spin is calculated individually

This is one of the biggest misconceptions. It doesn’t matter how many times a machine has lost in a row or if it just won the jackpot. Every spin is 100% random and is autonomous from every other spin that happens both before and after.

Having a Player Card does not increase your chances of winning

It doesn’t matter if you have a player card or not. It doesn’t matter if you prefer to play penny by penny. It doesn’t even matter if you load up your machine with $50,000 and play penny slots for a full year straight. As mentioned above, each spin is done randomly regardless of what spins comes before/after AND independently of how you decide to pay.

Location of the machine has nothing to do with your chances of winning

“Trust me. The slot machine by the entrance way is way tighter than the ones in the middle of a casino,” said someone who knows nothing about slot machines.

This is one of the most common myths and one that needs to be debunked right away. However, the only good thing about this myth is that it only applies to land based casinos. Online, every slot machine is in the same place!

There is no best time of the day to play

The only ‘best time to play’ is when you have nothing else you’d rather be doing. Whether it’s 4am on a Tuesday and 9pm on a Friday, your odds are the exact same.

Casinos (sometimes) want you to win!

The last one may be the most surprising, but in reality it should be expected. Casinos don’t want you to win all the time, but they certainly want you to win occasionally. Players leaving happy or seeing other players leave happy is good for business and it’s the only way to get recurring business. So if you ever think a casino is conspiring against you, there’s a good chance they’re secretly pulling for you in order to get you back into their casino over and over again.

What are your thoughts on the matter? How about trying out a few spins today at Slots of Vegas Casino!
