Offline and Online Casino Gambling

Gambling – offline as well as online casino gambling – has fast become a leisure activity attracting a growing number of people. Offline Casino gambling is often combined with travelling and vacations to Las Vegas, Atlantic City and quite a few other cities in the USA, with an increasing number of Indian Casinos included. Casino gambling is also a popular pursuit in Europa as well as most parts of the world. However, for some the access to casinos are limited or absent. The internet however, offers a lot of gambling and gaming opportunities for those.

In USA we can identify at least five groups of casinos or casino gaming establishments

  • Luxurious land based casinos
  • Cruise ship casinos
  • Indian Casinos
  • Riverboat casinos
  • Local card gaming clubs

The first city that comes to mind when we talk about luxurious casinos is Las Vegas. There has been legalized gambling in Nevada for decades but the real boom has developed over the recent years. The growth of casinos and hotels in Vegas can seem out of control. Due to the invasion from gambling and entertainment hungry people from all over the world, Las Vegas has become the fastest growing city in the United States.

Though family resorts, with theme parks and other attractions for the juniors have popped up like toad hats over the years, developers in Vegas now tend to prioritize more adult oriented establishments. The opening of the luxury Wynn casino in May 2005 is a good example of this trend. Las Vegas – with all it’s casino gambling jet set pomp and glitter – belongs to the adult generations.

The Indian casinos as well as the riverboat casinos and local gambling clubs are more sober alternatives to the luxury in Vegas. As the demand for gambling adventures are booming in all regions of the country, these kinds of casino establishments has grown equally.

The casino gambling alternative that most people find their way to is, internet casino gambling. The availability is outrageous and it is you who decide when to play and you can play from any location on the globe that has an internet connection. Login Maniaqq

A Glimpse At The Things To Look For In An Online Casino Bonus

So – that online casino bonus is really calling to you, is it? Not only that, but the casino itself looks like it would be a fun place to come back to again and again. But you’re really not into taking financial risks to begin with. So, should you try luck, or is it just another attempt by someone to part you from your money?

우리카지노

Yes, it’s true! You can be an internet high roller, and even bring home some money – BUT you really need to check out what you’re up against before jumping in. So, in the interest of having a fun, profitable – and legal – time, here are some suggestions:

Before doing anything else, first check out the laws and rules of your state or country of residence. If it’s illegal where you live, drop the idea right now! If not, proceed to the rest of the suggestions.

Check out the reputation of the casino, don’t just count on the bonus to tell you everything you need to know about them. First, do a bit of sleuthing on your own, online. Ask for a list of the best casinos with the best bonuses. You’re sure to find many hits on your query – but beware of seeing one casino’s name over and over again, as this could mean the “reviews” have been placed there by those involved in the casino itself.

A really good idea in finding the places with the highest payouts for playing, is to ask your “gambler” friends and acquaintances for their opinion. You’re sure to get an honest one – especially if they’ve won, or lost, huge amounts of cash.

Check out the actual gambling sites, don’t just take one on faith because you like the way their bonus sounds. Look into what their payout protocols are – and their regulations and rules. Try to find those that don’t just lure you into becoming member, but actually reward you for repeated visits to their site.

Some examples of good bonus deals would be those casinos that offer “weekly bonus matches”. This means the player gets his deposit amount “matched” by that casino, every week, on a certain day. And, another great one is the monthly program in which the player has the potential to win large amounts of cash, just for playing one of their favorite online games during that time period.

Remember, that although you can find that online casino bonus that pays out big, you should first do some research on your own, ask some questions, and get a feel for what’s out there – so it’s not YOU providing the payout to the casino.

Online Dating Safety Tips To Successful Dating

Dating services have been around for decades, but it’s only been in the past 6 or 7 years that they’ve really taken off online. Here are a few tips we’ve cobbled together that should help you safely navigate what is, for many, new online terrain.

Staying Anonymous for Awhile

Most online dating services use a double-blind system to allow members to exchange correspondence between each other. This allows members to communicate, but without knowing each other’s email addresses or other identifying personal information. It’s best to use the dating service’s internal, secure messaging system until you feel as though you know the person to some degree. This ensures that when you do run into the inevitable creep online, you remain anonymous and safe.

Be Realistic

Prince (or Princess) Charming may very well indeed be waiting for you online, but you should also set your expectations just a little bit lower. Most of your dates will  hot chinese ladies   turn out to be duds. That’s just the statistics! So it helps prepare yourself if you remember that going into the online dating process. Don’t believe that everyone who shows interest in you is worth your time. And don’t get disenchanted if your first date decides they don’t want a second. It’s easy to believe they are rejecting you personally, but it’s for the best. After all, you’re looking for a good, mutual match, not someone to swoon over. (But hey, if you find someone to swoon over, that’s cool too!)

Being realistic also means setting realistic expectations about geography. The Internet allows us to search for and communicate with people from all over the world, regardless of their proximity to us. Unfortunately, that makes a real dating relationship difficult once you have to translate it into the real world. So if you’re not willing to fly to Paris to meet Mr. Frenchie, then don’t look for anybody outside of your local community. Keep in mind, that 50 mile drive for the first date might seem like no big deal, but imagine doing that multiple times a week if things got serious. It can (and has) been done, but know what you’re getting yourself into beforehand.

Use Common Sense

It’s funny I have to write those words, but they are just so important. We sometimes feel like we’ve made an “instant connection” online with someone we’ve only just met. Some of that feeling is a result of the disinhibition that’s a part of being anonymous on the Internet today. So go slowly with new contacts and get to know the person via messaging and emails first. Then proceed to phone calls if you still feel safe, attracted, and curious. Finally, setup a first date when the time is right.

Don’t agree to do something just because it sounds like fun or exciting if it’s really not you. The point of online dating isn’t to reinvent yourself or to try out everything new under the sun. It’s to find someone you’re most compatible with, which means being yourself. So while it may sound romantic to agree to fly off to the Bahamas on a moment’s notice with someone you barely know, it isn’t very good common sense to do so. Keep your wits and instincts about you.

Proceed Slowly and Listen to Your Instinct

As I wrote above, you need to take things slowly, even when  mail order wife  it seems or feels right immediately, or the other person is pressuring you into meeting more fast than you are comfortable with. Take things at your pace. If the other person is a good match for you, then they will not only understand your pace, but will often mirror it! Always talk to the other person by telephone at least once before agreeing to meet for your first date. Ask for a photo (if they didn’t provide one in their profile) so that you can be assured of meeting the right person. Be on the lookout for inconsistencies in their history or any stories they tell you of their life, background, or growing up. Ask informative questions of the other person to ensure they match what and who they say they are in their profile.

Don’t feel the need to give out your phone number if you’re not comfortable doing so. Instead, ask for theirs and remember to put in the code for blocking caller ID before making the call. There’s no need to be paranoid about your privacy, but at the same time, it is wise to take simple precautions that will ensure you remain safe until you are completely comfortable. Some people also use a cell phone or even a public pay phone to ensure their potential match can’t get their home telephone number. Do what feels best and right for you.

Remember, you don’t have to meet everyone you communicate with online. Some people will obviously not be right for you and you can politely say so before ever progressing to a phone call or first date. Online dating empowers you to make choices that are right for you. So feel free to make those choices, even if you are typically unuse to doing so.

2008 National Commercial Casino & Racino Gaming Revenue Analysis

Oops! That giant hissing sound is the gaming balloon that had been growing over the years, slowly losing air. But, it has not been a tide that lowered all ships however, as some emerging and expanding gaming jurisdictions showed strong growth in 2008.

Overall, the commercial and racetrack casino sectors (excluding Indian gaming), experienced a 3.5 percent decline in gaming revenues for 2008, generating a total of $36.2 billion, down some $800 million from 2007. It was the Racino sector that has tempered this drop, as they showed a gain of almost $1 billion in 2008, thereby bringing the Commercial sector market decline to $1.8 billion, or 6.7 percent. Nevada was the biggest loser in 2008, dropping almost $1.3 billion, more than half of which stemmed from the Las Vegas Strip segment. 먹튀검증

Hunkering Down

For the most part, casino operators were caught relatively flat-footed by the extent of the 2008 revenue downturn, as it was not until the third and fourth quarters when it really nosedived. Riding the crest of year over year market growth across the country and the availability of ample credit and equity funds, new construction and expansion proliferated in recent years. Today, faced with the realities of declining, or at best stagnant demand, many of these projects are now considered over-leveraged and/or over-sized. As a result many gaming companies are attempting to renegotiate their debt – made more difficult by lower valuations – while also paring down operational costs. The latter has become a very problematic conundrum when dealing with the competition, especially in those jurisdictions that are now vying for market shares with new emerging casino projects in neighboring areas. A topic we discuss more fully in the State by State analysis section of this publication.

As a result of these conditions the gaming industry landscape is now strewn with impending fatalities. Among the more notable troubled firms are Station Casinos, Empire Resorts, Harrah’s Entertainment, Greektown Holdings, Legends Gaming, Tropicana Entertainment, Herbst Gaming; and the list grows each week.

“How long will these economic conditions persist, and are we at the bottom yet?” are questions no one appears to be answering yet. What is clear however is that most gaming jurisdictions will have to learn how to deal with a smaller pie.

Note:
This analysis includes only gaming revenues of licensed casinos and pari-mutuel outlets that offer casino games, and not Indian gaming operations, card rooms, or small non-casino type slot locations. The whole article, including revenue tables is available on our web page.

Study Skills – How to Study Learning Techniques – Part 1

Have you ever read a list of study skills that are supposed to be so wonderfully effective but really don’t know how to go about making them happen? Been there – done that! I remember reading a list of twenty study tips and thinking, ‘yes, I know that. I’ve read all that before’. I also remember two weeks later being just as stressed about study and wondering what I could do to improve my study skills!! Now, I realise that I had been reading that list of study skills and not really knowing how to put them into practise.

study in Germany

Then I had the idea to talk to family and friends who have been very successful in their careers and ask them what study habit they thought was the biggest help in their student days. When I spoke with my Uncle James he gave me two examples of how to implement study habits in a practical way.

1. Schedule ‘me’ time

Have you ever read this study tip and thought you really couldn’t trust yourself to go and watch TV or go to a movie with friends because it’s so easy to find yourself watching the next TV show and the next? Or it’s so easy to go to a movie and then want to keep hanging out with your friends because you’re enjoying yourself and when you go home you have to study?

Well here’s a way to get some controlled ‘me’ time. My Uncle James is a successful civil engineer and town planner; a business owner with global connections. This is the story he told me. Before he got his driving license, he had saved enough money from part time work to buy a car which needed some tender loving care. Uncle James said he was so proud of his car and working on getting it into good shape was a passion; something that brought a huge smile to his face. If he could have worked on that car all day, he said he would have been in heaven. But Uncle James also knew he still had a long way to go in his studies and that study had to be his priority.

He had previously worked out that he could set himself study tasks and stick to them if he had a great reward at the end of the study time. So he would study for about 40 or 50 minutes until he found his mind wondering and feeling a little fatigued. That was his cue to get up and go play with his car!! Fifteen or twenty minutes spend working on the engine, polishing the chrome, cleaning the upholstery or any one of the hundreds of little jobs he could do felt like a two week vacation (well…almost LOL!!). As an added bonus, when Uncle James came back to his studies, he said he found he was remembering more from his previous study session. Uncle James found out a few years later what was happening when he was working on his car; his brain had gradually been filtering and storing the information from the previous study session while he was absorbed in working on his passion.

2. Set small goals to achieve big goals

What Uncle James had discovered that year was that studying in this manner had a two-fold benefit. Not only was he able to tackle his study in a better way but he was able to see that, by breaking a big job down into small pieces and working consistently, a long-term big goal can be reached with the minimum stress. As he worked consistently on all his study commitments, he was regularly rewarded not only with the time spent working on his car but also by a growing sense of satisfaction as he watched his car turn from a dusty, dirty wreck to a shiny well kept car with a nicely purring engine. And then the ultimate reward came at the end of the year of being able to get his licence and drive his car!!

How To Get A Multiple Schengen Visa

A Schengen visa allows you to travel across 25 European countries which is very convenient for a visa holder. But having a Schengen visa stamped in your passport does not automatically mean that you can visit a few countries or one country more than once during your visa validity.  Only a Multiple Entry Schengen Visa allows its holder to travel freely to any Schengen country as many times as you wish during the visa validity.  The total number of days spent in Schengen countries must not exceed the number stated on your visa, which can be 15, 30, 45, 60 or 90 days.

Not all embassies grant multiple entry visas, some of them issue single entry visas which allow you to enter only one country and only once. So, if you are looking to get a multiple entry Schengen visa, it is advisable to plan your first trip to France, and apply for a Schengen visa with the French Consulate because this Embassy issues Multiple Entry Visas provided that the applicant’s documentation corresponds to the required standards.

Schengen Visa Travel Insurance

As an applicant you need to meet the following requirements in order to be granted a multiple entry visa valid between 3 and 6 months.

  1. Your passport and UK visa must be valid for at least 9 months after your trip to France ends.
  2. You must be employed in the UK full time for at least 3 months, and can confirm this with three last pay slips and employment letter. If you work part time, most probably visa will be granted for one month.
  3. If you are not employed, you can be supported by one of your relatives (spouse, parent, brother/sister) who work and can provide employment letter, payslips and bank statement.
  4.  Your UK bank statement should show sufficient funds to cover the trip expenses. You need to have at least £50 per person for each day you are staying in France.
  5. You must provide ANNUAL travel insurance which covers the period of time the visa is requested for. If you have insurance with your bank account, you need to bring a letter from the bank saying that you are entitled to the insurance, and the insurance policy booklet.
  6. If you had a Schengen visa stamped in your passport before, and it was a multiple entry visa, this will increase your chances to get a longer Schengen visa (up to one year).

Keeping Online Casinos Honest

Is gambling at online casinos safe? This question has been asked since the first online casino games were introduced onto the internet. Concern about the ethics of online gambling sites was first raised in the late 1990’s when several dishonest gambling sites created havoc in the industry. However, in recent years, organizations designed to regulate online casino operators have changed the face of internet gambling by providing guidelines for fair and impartial gaming.

While you will always find the odd internet gambling site that is less scrupulous than others, most internet casino operators offer safe and honest online gambling at licensed sites. Many of these are regularly monitored by a 안전공원 gaming regulatory body or a watchdog organization such as eCOGRA, which has revolutionized the industry for players.

Internet gaming fans can minimize their chances of falling victim to suspect gaming sites by limiting their gambling to eCOGRA member sites. Although online casinos are not obliged to become members, many believe it to be in their best interests to do so.

A casino online that is a member of a watchdog organization will usually display a seal or logo on its site in an attempt to increase a player’s sense of security. Players know that their site is committed to upholding the values advocated by groups such as eCOGRA and is serious about fair and professional gaming.

Thanks to the efforts of watchdog organizations, the casino online industry has been cleaned up. It is fair to say that secrets in the online gambling world do not usually remain secret for long and if a casino is suspected of cheating its customers, the majority of its customers will simply move on to another online casino. Gambling game forums provide a useful means of communication for many casino players. You can find out which casinos fail to pay out in a timely manner, which offer substandard online casino software and which offer less than adequate customer service simply by reading the latest postings at one of these sites.

Fortunately, the practice of cheating players has all but diminished since gambling online became more accessible and mainstream. However, it is still important to choose your casino wisely. Fairness and honesty are criteria you should always base your selection on. Researching the sites you frequent will help you to make informed choices and will ensure you and other casino players receive maximum protection. It will also help to keep the spotlight firmly on casino firms, which raises the professional image of the industry.

Word of mouth is the best way to find the best casinos. Check at online casino forums to find out which sites are the most popular and highly recommended. Speak to friends and colleagues about their favorite sites and follow up recommendations that you will find in online gaming magazines. Remember to check the licensing information of your site along with its eCOGRA membership. Your online gambling experiences should be fun and stress-free, giving you more reasons to focus on winning cash playing all your favorite games.
