The Green Felt Jungle

Latest Casino Bonuses
The Green Felt Jungle
The Green Felt Jungle

After more than 40 years of casino action and writing about gambling, I can assure my readers of one thing: it isn't easy to win at gambling.

While some games may be easier to beat than others, they are never a sure thing. Even the best poker and blackjack players lose, and those are both skilled games.

I was a staff writer for Card Player Magazine for a year

While we published many articles about poker's top players, I discovered a curious truth about those players. They would reveal a lot of truths about themselves, like where they were born, their early poker experiences, what tournaments they had conquered, and how much they had won. But they never described in detail their winning secrets.

The only poker player who did that was Doyle Brunson.

Doyle had enough confidence in his ability to give away all his secrets in his best-selling book, 'Super System.' He knew he could adjust his play to stay ahead of his opposition and he has proven that over the years.

The green felt jungle, as an author called the casino world in a book, is a glamour-filled place that can be treacherous to the unwary, as many have discovered.

Let's take horse racing as an example:

There are horseplayers who have lost continuously at this sport of kings. They have tried dozens of systems and have enjoyed temporary success at the game. But in the long run, they find that nothing seems to work consistently. I know because I have tried my own systems on the horses. Sometimes I win but more often I find myself on the losing end.

I recently discovered a new system of horse handicapping that I tried at the Meadows, a casino that operates a harness racetrack near Washington, PA. The casino has a horse room that provides simulcasts of all the major thoroughbred and harness tracks in the United States.

Lo and behold, I won the first five races I played!

I am still refining the system, but I think it has some real possibilities. At least that is my theory and I am sticking to it.

The problem...

...with winning in the green felt jungle is that the average player has a limited amount of money while the casino owners have deep pockets. Players need to win fast or their bankroll can quickly disappear. The casino operators can just be there and let odds and time be their weapons to win.

Players need to keep their heads, use their powers of choice wisely, and know when to push their luck and when to quit if they want to have a hope of winning. Some do. Most of them, sadly, don't.

If you have a big winning day at a casino

I strongly urge you to take some time off from the game. Relax. Enjoy life. Buy that car or another item you have been thinking about for a while. Go on that vacation. Visit an exotic place and live life to your heart's content.

Most winners do the exact opposite.

They never win enough to satisfy themselves. Instead of spending their money wisely (or even foolishly for their own enjoyment), they go right back into the tiger's den to parlay their win. And more often than not, it turns into a disaster.

Be smart. After you have satisfied yourself and spent some of that new-found money, return to the green felt jungle. Just be sure to watch out for the pitfalls.

Lady Luck is enticing...

...but she can be a fickle creature. Her lure is powerful but thinks of her as a siren sitting on the rocks, waving at sailors on boats passing in the night. If you get too close to those rocks, your life is in your hands.

Play n' GO Shows Off Latest Tricks in Street Magic

Play n' GO Shows Off Latest Tricks in Street Magic

One month after rolling out its latest state-of-the-art online slot, Rise of Olympus, Play’n GO has honored us with another fantastic addition to the catalog, only this time it’s all about magic!

The company’s most recent slot release, Street Magic, is an incredible performance of a mysterious trickster, known to its audience as “The Magician.” Not only is he a skillful illusionist, who helps all players to conjure up a win, the game’s protagonist is also a funny companion.

Why? Well, apart from pulling aces from up his sleeve once in a while, the main character can even add extra wilds and scatters onto the reels, making the entire gaming experience as transcedent as it can get!

People Are Fascinated By Magic

It is a widely known fact that people (even some primates) are extremelly fascinated by magic, whether it’s because of the fun or its mystic elements... According to Play’n GO CEO, Johan Tornqvist, people are intrigued by irrational beliefs, often thinking that supernatural is real. Torqvist shared his opinion in a short inteview:

“Everybody loves the mystery and excitement of magic, and street magicians have revived the art and brought it into a new era. There’s a certain delight in being amazed by a magic trick and not knowing how it is done, and we wanted to bring that delight, and that mystery, into a slot game for audiences to enjoy.”

Practice Your Tricks

In a way, the software giant has already reached quite a magical status in the industry by winning various awards for quality gaming content and original omni-channel products. The supplier’s approach to HTML5 development has provided an enhanced user experience and thanks to its comprehensive back-office tools, operators are capable of supporting their platforms with expansive reporting and marketing services.

Street Magic is on the way of becoming an instant hit, not only because of its main features “The Wild Shuffle” and “The Transporting Man” but mainly because of the people’s obsession with sorcery, witchcraft or simply magic. Call it what you like, it’s all up to you in the end – either you practice some tricks or you get enchanted. In any case, make sure to have some fun first!

Rival Premieres Almighty Dollar on Slots Capital

Rival Gaming has recently announced the release of a brand-new slot game called, Almighty Dollar. Although the title might not make it feel that way, Slots Capital Casino is calling it “a heavenly game” - and has gone the extra mile to show their appreciation by giving away extra spins...

Quite a Bit of Extra Spins

...And yes, it's true, they're not going easy on them either, in fact you might say they're making it pour with extra spins.

Hurry up and get your first batch of these, as the offer is valid only until September 15th. You can claim 20 extra spins on Almighty Dollar by using the bonus code, ALMIGHTY20. The offer is available to all players and does not require a deposit...

100 additional spins can be claimed by depositing at least $40 and using the bonus code, ALMIGHTY100 (also valid until September 26th).

Stairway to Heaven

The game itself has caused Slots Capital to rave about it, with their blogger Slots Lotty exclaiming: “Holy cow – this game is so generous with free spins I feel like I’ve died and gone to heaven! Hallelujah, I’m a believer!”

The 3-reel, 5-payline game with multipliers has combined the seemingly impossible – the yearning to get wealthy and affluent and still ascend to heaven. Just kidding, of course both are possible – it's just this slot, with Halos, trumpets, harps, male and female angels and celestial 7s seems like you've got rich and died – just like Lotty said...

...Extra Spins mode in this game is triggered by landing two spin symbols – once you do that, you will get your 7 extra spins to play with. Landing three of these icons will bring you whopping 21 extra spins, whereas the Wild Symbol attracts some serious multipliers.
