Online Casino Games Likely Coming to New Jersey Soon
Posted on February 7th, 2013 6:54 pm EST
If all goes according to plan, residents of New Jersey will soon be able to play casino games such as roulette, baccarat and blackjack online.
Assembly Bill 2578 will allow Atlantic City casinos to offer online gaming to residents of New Jersey.
The bill hasn't been signed into law as of yet, but it's getting close. New Jersey Governor Christie recently issued a conditional veto of the bill, but this is actually good news for proponents of the bill. Gov. Christie wants a few items added to the bill before he signs off on it, and none of the items are thought to be insurmountable. They include additional funding for treatment of compulsive gamblers, the introduction of a 10 year sunset of the bill and other items.
Once the bill has been signed into law, Atlantic City casinos will be able to apply for licenses. Once they are granted licenses, they will then be able to offer online gaming to residents of New Jersey.
The games which will be able to be offered are:
-big six wheel
Pokerstars has already announced its intentions to purchase an Atlantic City casino in order to gain entry into the new market. Pokerstars' agreement with the DOJ last year allows them to pursue a license in any state in which online gaming has become legal, which means that there should be no opposition when it comes to them securing a license.
We'll have more on this exciting development as the story progresses.
Mobile Online Gaming Continued to Evolve and Grow in 2012
Posted on January 1st, 2013 2:43 pm EST
2012 was a tremendously exciting year in the world of online casinos.
The biggest "change" that continued to hit the industry in 2012? The continued integration of mobile gaming into the online casino landscape.
A few years ago, the big game-changer in the industry was the introduction of "live" dealers. Here is how it worked - you sat down at your computer, logged in to your favourite online casino site and watched as a real dealer actually dealt your cards, just like at a "live" casino. Web cams were used to give this ultra-realistic feel, and it was a true game-changer for the industry.
This quantum leap forward for the industry is being surpassed by another innovation - mobile gaming.
Many online casinos are now offering their players the opportunity to play roulette, blackjack, slots and a host of other games through their mobile devices. Many online casinos have ported their software over to mobile platforms, making it possible to play games such as roulette or slots through your mobile device, whether it be an iPhone, Android device or some other type of smartphone. Now you can play real money online roulette as you commute to work on the phone or lay out on the beach. It really is an exciting new era.
In 2013, expect this trend to continue. Online gaming companies will continue to sink their resources into developing their mobile gaming platforms, which will result in enhanced mobile gaming packages that will offer more and more features.
It truly is an exciting time in the industry right now. Technology is changing by the day, but the online casino industry continues to keep right up.
Here's to a prosperous year in 2013, and best of luck at the tables!
Three Roulette Resolutions To Make in 2012
Posted on January 1st, 2012 1:54 pm EST
Itís that time of year again. Everybody is making resolutions to make themselves fitter, richer and happier. People are cutting back on the calories, signing up for gym memberships and thinking about changes that they could make to their careers.
If you are a roulette player, January 1st, 2012 is a great time to make some resolutions that will make you a better player at the roulette table. Here are three resolutions that every roulette player should be making this year:
1) I will enjoy the game more. If you arenít enjoying yourself at the roulette table, then this means that you are likely gambling over your head. Scale back on the size of your bets in order to enjoy yourself more. If you canít afford to lose the money that you are gambling with, then scale back on your bets.
2) I will learn more about the game. Do you know about the difference between the American roulette wheel and the European roulette wheel? Do you know about all of the different roulette bets that you can put on? Educate yourself about the game and you will almost certainly end up winning more money.
3) Be more social. Roulette is a social game - it is best enjoyed with other people. If you are planning on hitting the local casino, invite some friends along and you will almost certainly have a much better time. Even if you are playing online, try playing with a live dealer and the entire experience will almost certainly be enhanced.
These are three substantial changes that you can make to make your roulette experience a much more enjoyable one in 2012.
The Future of Roulette
Posted on December 13th, 2011 11:12 pm EST
What is the future of the game of roulette?
Over the past decade, roulette has moved from smoke-filled casinos to online casinos. In this day and age, you can play roulette from the comfort of your home for real money.
The question is - where is roulette going over the next ten years?
The answer? The answer is that roulette is going everywhere.
What do I mean by that?
Online casinos are spending millions of dollars these days creating apps for smartphones and tablets. That's right - while you are commuting on the train, you will be able to pull out your iPhone and play roulette from the comfort of your seat.
Another recent development? Live croupiers operating real roulette wheels online.
That's right - you log in to your account, sit down at a virtual table and a real croupier will spin a real wheel, all while you watch the action on your monitor.
How about a live croupier spinning a roulette wheel while you play via your iPhone or iPad?
How about a brick-and-mortar casino that also has an online offering?
There are many things to look forward to when it comes to online roulette. The future, in fact, is very bright.

How Do You Know if an Online Casino is Reputable?
Posted on November 21st, 2011 3:19 pm EST
One of the questions that people often ask me is - how do I know if an online casino is actually reputable?
Thatís a great question. To be honest, some online casinos are VERY reputable, while others should be avoided at all costs.
How do you know the difference?
Here are a few things that I look at when deciding whether or not an online casino is reputable:
1. The name behind the brand. Party Casino is run by Bwin.party, which is one of the largest online gaming groups in the world. Bodog Casino is run by Bodog, which has been around since 1994 and has one of the best reputations in the business. Find out which company is behind the brand that you are thinking about playing on. If you have never heard of the company, then you should probably find somewhere else to play.
2. The amount of time that they have been in business. If an online casino has been around for 5+ years, then I know that there is a good chance that they are a reputable outfit. Online casinos cost money to maintain, and if an online casino was not reputable, then they would slowly lose their customers and eventually go out of business. A lengthy track record always helps when determining whether or not an online casino is reputable.
3. Response times. Try sending the online casino an email - how fast do they respond? Does the online casino have a phone number posted on their site? Try giving them a call. If the online casino actually has real humans staffing their customer support lines, then that is a very good indication that they are reputable.
4. Reviews. Google is your best friend. Do a search on Google for something like "XYZ casino reviews". Are the reviews all negative? Do all of the reviews call the online casino a scam? Obviously that would be a great indication that the online casino should be avoided at all costs, regardless of the type of bonus offer that they want to give to you.
If you follow the rules listed above, then you will have a much better chance of landing with a reputable online casino establishment.

What Has Been the Economic Impact of the Recession on Casinos?
Posted on October 19th, 2011 10:16 pm EST
Casinos are quite a cyclical industry.
When the economy is strong, people tend to book more trips to gambling destinations such as Las Vegas and Reno.
When the economy is weak, people tend to stay closer to home.
There will always be people who will gamble, regardless of the state of the economy.
However, the general population will tend to stay away from Las Vegas and Reno and Macau when the economy is in the toilet, as their disposable income is generally on the decline along with the economy.
Back in the old days, Las Vegas used to be phenomenally cheap. You could fly to Vegas for just a couple of bucks, hotel rooms would be virtually free and buffets would be available for just a couple of dollars.
All of this was done to get people into the casino.
These days, the Las Vegas business model has changed.
While there are still low-cost buffets and hotel rooms, these are largely the domain of the older casinos who are trying to keep their heads above water while trying to battle against the likes of the Bellagio's of the world.
The higher-end casinos have put more of a focus on more expensive dinners and shows. These additional revenue streams have become a crucial part of the business models of the higher end casinos.
The problem? Many people don't really feel like shelling out $200 for a dinner or $400 for a show when the economy is in the doldrums. Many people are tightening their pursestrings these days, and this has come at the expense of Las Vegas casinos.
In short - the global recession has had a massive impact on many casinos throughout the world. When people aren't flush with cash, they generally tend to stay away from gambling hotspots such as Las Vegas and Reno.
When the economy ticks higher, so will the fortunes of many Las Vegas casinos.
How to Become a Professional Gambler
Posted on October 14th, 2011 8:02 pm EST
It's not easy becoming a professional gambler.
It takes discipline. It takes money. It takes sacrifice.
Many people have tried becoming professional gamblers, and few have made it.
Some of the common pitfalls:
1) Lack of discipline.
2) Lack of bankroll.
Discipline comes in many forms, especially if you are planning on living in Las Vegas. Can you avoid the seedier side of Las Vegas? Can you maintain your focus so that you make the right decisions? Can you maintain and stick to a proper budget?
Bankroll is just as important as discipline. In order to become a successful gambler, you need to have a proper bankroll. The successful professional gamblers are not the ones who bet a big pile of money on their favorite team. No, the professional gambler is the one who will spread out 20 bets over 20 different games. They are not betting their favorites - instead, they are betting on any game in which they feel that they have an edge. That is the difference between a professional gambler and somebody who will blow their bankroll.
So, you have discipline, you have desire and you have the bankroll. What's next?
In order to become a professional gambler, you need to practice, practice and practice some more.
You need to have the rules of whatever game you are planning on playing down cold.
Once you know the rules, you need to practice, either "live" or online. Start small and increase the size of your bets as you become more comfortable.
The life of a professional gambler is a tough grind. Can you handle the ups and downs? Could you wake up after taking a big loss and get right back to work? Could you wake up after winning a bunch of money and act as if nothing had happened?
Few tips to get started? Play for fun to begin with. There is absolutely no point in playing with real money until you are comfortable with the different types of bets and payoffs in roulette. You should probably expect to put in a good 8 - 10 hours of practise before you graduate into playing with real money.
