Supreme Court Upholds Casino Ban On $65,000 Winning Blackjack Player - What?

casino_dice_1219377.jpg

This is a pretty amazing story, and we had no idea the Supreme court sees such cases. Apparently a player who won $65,000 over a 7 year period playing blackjack at the Grand Victoria Casino on the Ohio River has had his ban upheld by the Indiana Supreme Court.

Tom Donovan became adept at card counting after completing an online course and was able to put his skill to work at the casino before his antics were discovered and he was subsequently banned in 2006.

Five Big Reasons to be Excited for Fallout: New Vegas

fallout-new-vegas-20100428000747195_640w.jpg

IGN has a killer interview with the people behind Fallout: New Vegas. Yep - we said New Vegas because this is a video game, not the Las Vegas we currently know and love. The hands on impressions is very cool, with mentions of how big the expansion is and how amazing the visuals are.

Poker Generating More Money than Race Books

poker_stuff_racebooks.jpg

Seems like poker rooms are starting to really pull in the money. Since 2003 poker has steadily been rising in popularity and it really contributing to the bottom line.

Poker is becoming a revenue generator for Las Vegas. According to state figures, Nevada's 106 poker rooms generated $155.7 million in revenues in 2008. That is more than the $136 million gained by the state's 185 sports book and almost twice the $80 million won by the state's 96 race books.

Poker play in Nevada has more than doubled since 2003, the beginning of the poker boom.

Poker, like all gaming, suffered a slight setback in 2008, but it was much lower than all other games of chance. Poker play revenues fell 4.6 percent in Nevada. Overall gaming revenues dropped 9.7 percent.

Blackjack Basic Strategy - A Guide to Winning at Blackjack

blackjack-cards.jpg

This amazing primer and guide will get you started on your road to Blackjack success.

Blackjack basic strategy is based on the mathematics of the game. It has been tested and refined through computer simulations. When it is followed correctly it reduces the house edge to the minimum, which is usually about one-half of a percent. Minor adjustments are made to basic strategy depending on certain rule variations that the different casinos can chose to use. For example some casinos will allow you to double down after splitting (DOS) and some do not allow it. There are also some changes made to basic strategy for single and multiple deck games.

Slots Seen as Most Addictive form of Gambling

fruit-slot-gaming-machines-online.jpg

Given we're headed to Vegas today, we thought we'd remind ourself how addictive those amazing slot machines can be. Video slot machines have come to be known as the "crack cocaine" of the gambling industry, and we agree somewhat. Click on through for the full read, but know your limits and only bring what you're willing to lose.

The mechanical wheels of spinning fruit used in the old one-armed bandits have gone the way of the typewriter. Modern-day slot machines are computerized sound-and-light shows so skillfully designed to keep players glued to their seats that some have been known to wear adult diapers to avoid bathroom breaks.

As state Treasurer Timothy P. Cahill promotes the idea of licensing three slot parlors in Massachusetts, some mental health and gambling specialists warn that the newer machines deliver such potent gambling highs that they can be particularly addictive.

With semi realistic movement, and magnet movement, winning is completely random and betting could not be fairer! Final positions are displayed on the LCD screen. Assembled track measures 78 x 45.5 x 10.5cm. Requires 4 D batteries (not included)

CombatBet.com Custom Military Poker Chips

CombatBet Custom Chips

In this day and age, we should always remember to take some time and thank those who serve or have served on our behalf. All those to take up duties to help protect and serve our society are a special breed, and now you can recognize that with their very own poker chip.

We were sent some chips from CombatBet.com to play with and to review. How did they hold up?

Well to begin with, these chips have some nice heft to them. They have a nice topcoat that provides some grip to them when you hold them, and they had no problem holding up the abuse our players could throw at them.

Whats special about these chips however, is that they are custom made to show off the logo of any unit you like. The art sample we were provided was extremely varied, and had excellent detail on the chips themselves. They even went so far as to perform some nice custom text printing along the sides to add that little bit extra.

The custom image appears to be placed on the chip via some kind of heat transfer. This provides great detail and color, and gives that grip on the chip.

All in all, they were beautiful. Though we recommend a base color other than black, as the contrast tended to call out the texture more than other colors.

If you are looking for a way to recognize your unit, or the unit of a loved one, head on over to CombatBet.com and take a look at their work. We think you'll be pleased with what you find.
