How to use your no deposit bonus

Written by Super User. Posted in Texas Holdem

As the name suggests, a no deposit bonus is simply a bonus (or gift) you get from an online betting site when signing up. The idea behind this is that sites try and attract new customers by essentially offering ‘free money’. Although it technically isn’t free money, these bonuses allow players to try out various games on their websites without the player spending their own money. Although these bonuses tend to be small amounts (usually around £10-£20), there are numerous ways which you can use this money on betting sites.

Check the requirements

Before you even start playing with your no deposit bonus, you should check things such as the specific bonus amount, the wagering requirements, and the maximum cash-out amount. Although a site may be offering a £10 no deposit bonus, this bonus could be limited to a specific slot games or table games. You’ll also have to check the requirements that allow you to cash out any of your winnings. These requirements tend to be quite high to avoid ‘giving away’ the bonus money to anyone that just signs up to the site.

Test out a few games

As mentioned earlier, a no deposit bonus is primarily offered to new players so they can try and any games which the betting site might have to offer. As a result, this is definitely the best way for you to use your no deposit bonus. The majority of these bonuses allow you to play a few slot games, but other sites tend to offer other games such as specialty games or table games. If you prefer table games over slots, then it is ideal for you to find a site which offers bonuses with these games rather than slots. Whatever types of games you prefer though, it is always best to try out the different games which they offer.

Optimise your number of bets

If your betting site offers you the chance to play a wide range of games with your no deposit bonus, you should optimise the number of bets you place so you can try and place as many bets as possible while trying out the games which the site has to offer. A good target to aim for is around 40-50 spins. This amount of spins gives you the chance to test out the variety of games which a site has to offer. Optimisation also allows you to manage how much money you place on each bet. You should avoid placing your entire bonus on a single spin as if you lose then you have just wasted your entire bonus. By budgeting your bets to allow you to have 40-50 spins, you will be able to try out the majority of the games which the site has to offer.

Have fun with it

Although there is no magic way or sure-fire way to make money from no deposit bonuses, it is a free and fun way for newcomers to be introduced to casinos and betting, and a good way for experienced punters to try out new sites. Although these tips will help you with your no deposit bonus, the biggest tip you can take from this (and any gambling article) is to have fun. Unless you’re planning on making betting your full time career, you should always treat it as a hobby and have as much fun as possible with it. If you find yourself not having fun, take a step back and come back to it at a later time. Your winnings will stay in your account so you can get back into it from where you left off.

POKERSTARS TO ADD BLACKJACK TO THE MIX

Written by Super User. Posted in Texas Holdem

Never know what to do when taking a break from poker? That might soon no longer be a problem, as the world’s largest poker room, Pokerstars, seems to be keen on adding blackjack to its game offerings. At first, the game will only be added in Spain, but it is expected the game will be added globally soon.

An Extra Game

The news that PokerStars is adding blackjack is quite surprising, as PokerStars has so far never offered other games than poker. Blackjack does seem like a logical second game to add, as both blackjack and poker are card games and both games are extremely popular in casinos. Because blackjack is played against a dealer, it might be more straightforward than poker and thus a good way for poker players to relax.

Strategy

That does not mean no strategy is involved in playing blackjack however. Blackjack is a game that requires a good deal of strategy and thus players that think about taking up the game should prepare themselves well. Aside from that, players should also realize that the casino always has the best odds of winning at blackjack and, unlike in poker, even perfect play might not lead to winning any money.

PokerStars

PokerStars is a poker room that has been around since 2001. It started out as a small place to play with play money, but soon evolved by adding a real money option, by creating events such as the World Championship of Online Poker, by hosting live tournaments and by having the best poker client. PokerStars eventually managed to become that largest poker room worldwide and the poker room and its parent company were acquired by the Amaya Gaming Group in June 2014 for almost $5 billion.

Written by Super User. Posted in Texas Holdem

The favourites to win the World Cup Golden Boot are all the usual suspects, Ronaldo, Messi andNeymar. The difficulty lies in picking any one of them to win the award as they are all very similarly matched in talent.

After an astounding Confederations Cup, Neymar is ready to set the World Cup scene alight. His 4 goals in 5 games helped Brazil lift the trophy and he is expected to help Brazil to victory in the summer. With an outstanding international goal record, and now starting to shake the tag of ‘overrated Brazil-Wonderkid’ of the same ilk as Robinho and Kaka, Neymar will be doing his best to contend for the trophy. He has some excellent odds to his name too, with William Hill offering him at 10/1 and Bet 365 offering 12/1. At worldcupbettingzone you’ll find a complete guide to Golden Boot betting, including odds, tips and links to special offers.

Despite failing to set the international scene alight, Lionel Messi has proven his class and will nonetheless be an integral part of Argentina’s World Cup campaign. He is the favourite to win the Golden Boot and as one of the best players in the world, you can’t really bet against him. Having suffered with injuries this year, keeping him out of the Barcelona side, it will be hard to tell whether Messi will be at his fitness peak by the time the competition comes along, or whether he will be suffering with other little niggling injuries. He is offered at 8/1, pretty much across the board, by Bet 365, Paddy Power, Bet Victor.

Christiano Ronaldo, is presently the World’s best player after receiving the prestigious Ballon d’Or award. He is quickly shaping in to a model professional, after cutting the diving out in the past few years and combining that with his immense talent, Ronaldo looks just as good a value as any to win the Golden Boot. The only thing letting him down is his team. Whilst Portugal are a good footballing nation, the only real star in their squad is Ronaldo, he will need quality service in order to score goals, despite being able to make a few by himself. Also, to score goals, you need games. With the quality of teams out there, Portugal are unlikely to make it past the quarter finals. Should Portugal make it past the quarter finals, the odds of Ronaldo winning the Golden Boot are very good. His odds range between 12/1 and 14/1 so there is a good chance of winning money on him.

How to play Spades at online casinos

Posted in Texas Holdem

Generally, four players may play at a time in Spades at online casinos. The rules of Spades are similar to the original Spades game. Given below are the set of rules on how to play online spades with respect to four players:

1. Dealing of Cards: There is random selection for the first dealer. Usually, two opponent players from each team draw cards and the player with the highest cards score becomes the first dealer. The players do not have any advantage while playing online spades. The cards are distributed in a clockwise manner, starting from the left side of the dealer. The pattern of card distribution is one card at a time to each player, until every player gets 13 cards.

2. Bidding Format: In Online Spades, the bidding starts from left hand side of the dealer. It moves in a clockwise direction around the table. Every player starts bidding by calculating how many ‘tricks’ may be won. Every player has to bid a number from 0-13. A bid can never be higher than 13.

3. Players cannot pass in online spades. In this game, there is only one round of bidding and the bids can’t be changed. The bid numbers also include the bids placed by individuals in partnership. Total bids by each player are actually the number of tricks that a player needs to get to have a positive score.
