3 Reasons Why Spreadsheets Are Amazing For Gambling

I am a huge fan of record keeping, monitoring performance and setting goals. That’s why spreadsheets are perfect for me when it comes to tracking how well I am doing with wagers. In this article, I’m going to highlight three key reasons why any serious gamble should incorporate spreadsheets into their routines. By the end of this post, you’ll be downloading the latest Excel spreadsheet and creating your own cool tables.

They’re a Great Way to Compare Results

Spreadsheets can be as complex or basic as the user’s needs. You don’t need to be a wizard to use basic functions like auto-sum. By using simply tables to include your results, you can compare month on month or year on year results to see how you’re doing and if you’re improving. You can interpret the results to understand where your strengths and weaknesses are. For instance, if you lose at blackjack but win at sports betting, you can shift your focus to sports betting.

Comparing your results also shows you care about how you’re doing. Let’s face it, anyone who gambles wants to win. Not only this, they want to maximise what they win too. By inputting your results into a spreadsheet, you’ll be staying on top of your bets. It doesn’t matter if you need a spreadsheet for poker, blackjack, sports betting, baccarat or slots, you can use it for any form of gambling.

Online Slots for Real Money

One perk of playing slots online is that the casinos offer free slots. By playing for free, you get to enjoy the game without risking the loss of any money. The downside, of course, is that you cannot win any money, either. If you are looking for a way to walk away from the slot machine with extra money in your pocket, it is time to play Online Slots UK for real money.

One word of caution is that slots have a high house edge. That means the odds favor the house and in the long run you are expected to lose money by playing. You will lose more money playing slots than games with a more favorable house edge, such as blackjack. Though you are likely to lose money playing slots, they are appealing because of the chance of winning big money on any spin.

The real money slot games have risk that the free games do not, but they also have a reward and excitement that doesn’t come with the free games. Hitting the jackpot has low odds, so the chances aren’t great that you will play a slot and then get rich and get to retire. It does happen, though. People have won life-changing amounts by hitting the jackpot of an online slot. More often, players win smaller amounts and leave the gaming session with a little more money than when they started.

Slot machines are a balance between risk and reward. Generally speaking, the more money you risk, the greater your potential reward if you win. Betting small amounts will help your money last longer, but it means your payouts will be smaller. Betting larger amounts will earn you bigger payouts, but it also means your bankroll will be depleted more quickly.

Playing online slots for real money has a benefit besides winning, though. Another benefit is the prospect of winning along with the fear of losing. Having money on the line creates tension, so playing for real money has more drama than playing free slots. Playing slots for free, it’s easy to keep spinning without a sense of excitement. When real money is at stake, though, the stakes are higher and you are emotionally and financially invested in the outcome.

Has Cryptocurrency Actually Taken Off at Casinos?

The mysterious payment method known as cryptocurrency has made waves online ever since Bitcoin launched in 2009. While casinos have often offered a variety of different payment methods, they may not have the capacity to accept cryptocurrencies. Are the cryptocurrencies actually taking off as a form of payment? Let’s explore this intriguing currency.

A Brief History of Cryptocurrency

Cryptocurrency is a digital currency which operates entirely online. It has no real-life counterpart like notes or coins and was designed and encrypted to be used for extremely secure bank transactions.

Crypto has been around since 1983 when American David Chaum invented ecash. It hit the mainstream with the launch of Bitcoin and has been a talking point among governments and consumers alike for many years. Continue reading “Has Cryptocurrency Actually Taken Off at Casinos?”

How Scientists beat the house with Chaos Theory in Roulette

Roulette is far and away the only casino game that is seen by the vast majority of hardened punters as the one game where fairly simple maths dictates the outcome. Simple number patterns can be used to predict the outcome and this has been the go-to tactic for Roulette for years.

Fairly recently though, it’s been suggested that a scientific phenomenon called Chaos Theory could assist players to get a greater edge over the house when playing live casino games.

What is Chaos Theory?

To put it fairly simply, Chaos theory is a branch of mathematics that focusses on things that are highly susceptible to small changes that can massively affect the outcome. Like Roulette for example, the wheel can be spun at the exact same speed, the ball can be placed in the exact same place but the result will not always be the same.

The Rise of the UFC into the Company it is today

With the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) celebrating its 25th anniversary this year, it seems appropriate to look back on how the company has grown into the global sporting behemoth it is today. The sport continues to rise in popularity, and its appeal is wide reaching. There is something about physical combat sports which have a unique appeal, and the UFC has tapped into this to provide a product like no other.

Of course, it has taken the company a long time to garner the interest and popularity it now enjoys. When the UFC was developed in the early 1990s it was slow to take ahold among more established combat sports, like boxing and wrestling. Many were taken aback by its violent nature. Indeed, US senator John McCain lobbied a campaign to ban the UFC, referring to it as the equivalent of “human cockfighting”.

Once the rules were redefined and the sport became more regulated, its popularity began to grow steadily. However, the company struggled financially in the pay-per-view market, and eventually branched off into reality television with the advent of ‘The Ultimate Fighter’ – a show which featured up and coming MMA talent competing for a six-figure UFC contract. The programme was an instant success, and led to more television opportunities for the company, and as a result the sport began to gain a stronger footing commercially.

Where is Bingo Most Popular Around the World?

With its fun, social aspect, bingo has grown to become one of the most popular forms of gambling around the world, both online and in halls. However, despite the game following a similar format, the history behind it within each country differs significantly.

With this in mind, here are the countries where bingo is most popular around the world and how the game made its first appearance.

Germany

Bingo was embraced by Germany in 1880, but the game’s format is now very similar to how it’s played in the UK. Originally known as “der Lottospeil”, the phrase “volltreffer” would be exclaimed when someone won during a game.

However, bingo is more than just a form of entertainment in Germany and is actually used as a teaching method in schools; primarily for maths, spelling and even history. This has encouraged considerable popularity growth within every generation, and has also inspired bingo to become a teaching technique in the UK. Overall, there are now more than 40 dedicated bingo halls across Germany. Continue reading “Where is Bingo Most Popular Around the World?”

Is Cryptocurrency the future of Casinos?

Dipping a toe in the world of online gambling can be an intimidating endeavour, there are just so many sites to choose from! If you want to play in a bricks and mortar casino your options will be limited by your geographical location, but if you’re looking online you can afford to be a bit choosy and find the site that’s right for you.

Going for big names and looking for the best games possible like the ones you’ll find at Betfair online slots is a good way to go, but sometimes you might have a more specific need when you’re signing up for a casino site that informs your decision. Maybe you’re looking for a site that has a really active live casino section because that’s what you’re most interested in or you might want to go for one with a particularly good app because you tend to use your phone to play. If you’re someone interested in the boom of cryptocurrency, you might be interested in a site that allows you to bet using Bitcoins or other virtual currencies. In fact, casinos are arguably one of the few industries trying to innovate and accept this new form of currency as standard. However, whilst it’s largely been accepted, there is still a long way to go before the virtual currencies can be ready for mainstream use. Continue reading “Is Cryptocurrency the future of Casinos?”
