Pai gow is an intriguing gambling game that has been popular for years in Asia and recently has gained a following at casinos here in the United States. The


game is played with thirty-two tiles with the traditional domino-like engraved dots. (Some casinos even refer to pai gow tiles as “dominos” because they are so similar.)


Setting up the game requires the dealer to shuffle the tiles, stacking them into eight stacks of four, and then rolling three dice. The total number rolled determines which player will receive the first stack of tiles, after which all the remaining stacks are handed out to players, vacant player positions on the table, and to the dealer.


Pai Gow – Pai Gow Poker Tiles


Next, the players and the dealer individually produce two hands made up of four tiles each, a so-called high hand and a low high hand. The object of the game is to create two hands that are both higher than the bank’s hand. In pai gow all the players take turns being the bank. That means the player who is acting as the bank will bankroll against all other players at the table, paying out winnings to other players if he loses. On the flip side, the player acting as the bank for that round will take winnings from everyone else if he has the high hand and also wins over other players in the case of a tie (tiles that have the same value and rankings). This game is similar to baccarat in that it gives the player some of the best house odds. In pai gow the player/house odds are nearly even. That being the case, the house charges players a 5 percent commission on all winning bets.

Mangas Captial Gaming (MCG), which is the majority owner of Betclick has announced that they have now acquired Expekt’s sports betting and gaming operations. After a long series of discussions and negotiations it is believed that eventually agreed to sell for between €110m and €125m.


Expekt is a Malta based operation that has caught the eye by many in the online gambling industry. They provide sports betting services for over 20 countries across Europe. Their presence has been especially felt in Eastern Europe. They have established themselves as a well known brand that clients can safely place bets at. Many pundits feel that Expekt will form a fitting relationship with Betclick. Betclick is also a Malta based operation but is mainly concentrated on the French market.


In 1999 Christian Haupt and Conny Cesar founded what we now know as Expekt. These two also own casino and poker software operation Tain but it is understood that this company was not involved in the deal. It is also believed that their retail stores in Germany and Austria are not part of the deal either.


Mangas Captial Gaming will be buying the Expekt sportsbook backend as well as their marketing functions and customer base. It is expected that the current management team at Expekt, including their CEO Per Widerstrom will be retained. It is unclear at the present time as to whether there will be any redundancies among the rest of the staff currently working at Expekt.


MCG bought 75% of last May for an undisclosed fee. They are also rumoured to be in talks with Nordicbet in regards to a possible acquisition of their operation. In times of economic uncertainty it seems as though the team at MCG are going from strength to strength. …



A good baccarat strategy is usually considered to be a myth among gamblers. We happen Card Counting


Card counting is a procedure whereby a player keeps track of what cards have been dealt out of the deck (or shoe). The counter uses this information to assist him in making playing decisions. Before the reader develops any pre-conceived notions on what Card Counting really entails, let us dispel a couple of misconceptions.


Card Counting does not give you psychic-like powers to predict the next card out of the deck. What Card counting will do is give you a good indication of whether a deck is favourable or unfavourable and the extent of this favourableness or unfavourableness.


Card Counting does not involve memorizing every card that comes out of the deck. When you count cards, you are not keeping track of individual cards. All you are doing is keeping a relative score of high Togel value cards (10’s and Ace’s) to low cards (2, 3, 4, 5 and 6).


Card Counting: Basic Premise


The game of Blackjack is focused around 10-value cards (10’s and Face Cards) and Ace’s. Why? Because combined, they are the most plentiful card in the deck. The most basic premise of Card Counting strategy is that decks rich in 10-value cards are advantageous to the player and decks short on 10-value cards are advantageous to the Casino.


Why are decks rich in 10-value cards favourable?


There are three main reasons:


The higher the proportion of 10-value cards remaining in the deck or shoe, the greater the likelihood of drawing a Blackjack (A 10 value card and an Ace). The Dealer has the same increased chance of getting a Blackjack under such circumstances and will therefore get more Blackjacks …

Microgaming Company has updated their flash software according to the Firefox playability. The thing is that ActiveX commands previously used by Microgaming could not be launched in a Firefox browser, which was a bit of inconvenience for online casino players. Since this new technology was introduced to players, it has become possible to use Firefox browser for gambling at online casinos.


Being a Firefox user, first of all, you should choose your favorite Microgaming casino and go for instant play. A flash version will be opened in a new window with a notification on the top of the browser. It will ask you to permit the FlashAX Control access.


Another thing you should be sure about is the casino quality. Trustable casinos do allow their clients to install software on their computers straight away. But it’s not always that you will download Togel Hongkong software. Sometimes you want to play some game without bothering yourself with extra downloading. Here goes the flash version. What is the FlashAx Control? Actually it’s a plugin that allows a player to play the flash version.


After having your plugin installed simply restart your Firefox. And now you’re enjoying something you could only dream about several years ago! There is one negative side: mac computer users will not be able to install the plugin on their Firefox browser, since FlashAx Control was designed for the Windows Firefox only.

Bitcoin is currently going through a purple patch. After hitting an all-time high in March, BTC surged even higher in May. This is a great bullish run for the cryptocurrency, which looks set to earn more exposure, as well as an expanded user base, as a result. Media outlets around the world are chiming in on the new Bitcoin price, which is currently trading over $1,500. As more people become aware of Bitcoin’s lucrative nature, investors pile in more money. Late adopters are known to greatly inflate prices, allowing early investors to ride the bullish wave. But what about if you’re new to Bitcoin and you’re not yet ready to dive into making trades? A quick and easy way to acquire some free Bitcoins is by using Bitcoin faucets, a rewards system that pays out a small fraction of Bitcoin when users complete a simple task.


These tasks can be anything from solving simple captchas to playing very basic casino games. While Bitcoin faucets aren’t likely to make you a fortune, they are a viable way to earn a small amount of cryptocurrency with relatively low risk. For instance, many faucets don’t pay out more than 1,000 Satoshi at a time, which is around 1 cent. Bitcoin faucets are primarily designed to get people onto specific websites which usually make money through ad revenue. Generally, the higher the amount of traffic a website has, the more ad revenue it can make. This creates a situation where the Bitcoin faucet owner and the faucet participant benefit – the latter get free Satoshi paid into their Bitcoin wallet. There are a few different types of Bitcoin faucet. Some only require a participant to log onto a website to claim a reward, while others involve very simple games being played …



Misi yang besar dibawa Barcelona dalam tur pramusim mereka tahun ini. Bagaimana tidak, klub berjuluk Los Blaugrana itu terbang ke Israel dan Tepi Barat untuk menjalani tur mereka yang diberin nama ‘Peace Tour’ atau ‘Tur Perdamaian.


Seperti yang telah di ketahui, Israel dan Tepi Barat merupakan dua wilayah konflik yang tak kunjung usai antara Israel dan Palestina. Melihat hal itu, Barcelona berharap bisa menyatukan penduduk Palestina dan Israel seperti yang diharapkan Presiden Barcelona, Sandro Rosell.


“Apabila ada satu hal yang disukai penduduk Israel dan Palestina bersama-sama, maka mereka menyukai Barcelona,” ujar Rosell.


Komentar itu disampaikan Rosell saat menghadiri Kongres Klub Pendukung Barcelona Seluruh Dunia yang dilangsungkan di Barcelona. Barcelona akan mengunjungi Tel Aviv dan Hebron, dan akan mengadakan coaching clinics kepada anak-anak setempat.


Taruhan Bola – Real Madrid terlalu banyak ikut Politik


Real Madrid terlalu dipenuhi politik, bukan sepakbola itu sendiri. Demikian yang disampaikan oleh Jose Mourinho. Pelatih Chelsea meyakini bahwa musim lalu, Los Blancos tidak tampil terlalu buruk. Tapi mengalahkan Barcelona tidaklah cukup bagi The Special One.


Berbicara kepada ESPN, Jose Mourinho menyebut, “Saya tahu Madrid adalah klub spesial. Madrid bukanlah sekadar klub. Madrid adalah politik. Madrid bukanlah tentang sepakbola atau olahraga, tetapi tentang banyak hal di sekelilingnya (yang justru didahulukan daripada sepakbola).”


Mantan pelatih Internazionale ini menunjuk apa yang terjadi musim lalu. Ketika, Los Blancos gagal di tiga ajang sekaligus. Kalah dari Barcelona di Liga Spanyol bahkan sejak Desember. Tersingkir dari Borussia Dortmund meski keluaran hk agregat begitu tipis. Dan disingkirkan Atletico Madrid, tim yang tak pernah menang dari mereka dalam14 tahun terakhir, di final Copa del Rey.

Neteller, the leading global independent online money transfer business, has cut 250 jobs with regard to its principal operations in Calgary, Canada and the UK.


As a result of the group’s voluntary withdrawal from the US market, the Group has substantially completed the necessary reorganisation and restructuring of its operations to reduce its headcount and align related costs with anticipated revenues of its worldwide business.


This rationalisation programme has focused on the Group’s Calgary-based Togel Hongkong operations where the principal teams serving the US market were employed. As previously highlighted, transfer volumes and customer enquiries through the Group’s contact centres have decreased substantially since the Group ceased processing transfers for US residents.


Staff reductions will total around 220 employees, across all levels, from the Group’s contact centre and security teams, as well as related support functions in marketing, processing and IT/ product support. Approximately half of the reductions were through the Group’s voluntary redundancy programme.


In addition, as part of the rationalisation of the Group’s UK facilities, it is expected that around a further 30 redundancies will arise from the relocation of the Group’s Gatwick-based operations to Cambridge where they will share premises with the Group’s NetBanx business. This move is expected to be completed by the end of March 2007.


Following these staff reductions, the Group will employ approximately 425 staff across its European, Americas and Asia Pacific operations, down from a peak of over 1,000 during 2006. A further part of the Group’s rationalisation programme will include a review of the Group’s property requirements and may include a sale or partial lease of certain of the Group’s Calgary-located facilities.


As stated in our trading update of 18 January 2007, the total cash costs associated with staff restructuring are expected to …



Online casino gambling is just as popular as live casino gambling. There are even Internet casinos that use webcam broadcasts and live dealer studios to give you an authentic brick and mortar casino experience. I will be sharing the best online casino gambling tips for beginners in this post. These tips will focus on Internet casino gambling in general instead of strategy for casino games. The top gambling tips for online casino players include strategies for getting the most out of sign up bonuses, reload bonuses, casino promotions and loyalty programs. Internet casinos give a large percentage of their profits back to players through bonuses and promotions. They may only win – on average – a couple dollars out of every $100 wagered but popular casinos have millions of customers so the actual amount reinvested can be substantial. The first incentive new online casino players will receive is a sign up bonus so I will start with that. Online Gambling News has setup special casino bonuses at our featured U.S. casinos in 2013.


Best Online Casino Gambling Bonus Strategy

Online casino gambling bonuses come in a variety of forms. I said above that the first perk new gamblers receive is the sign up bonus but that is not actually true in some cases. You have to make a deposit to get a sign up bonus but sometimes you can receive what is called a no deposit casino bonus. This money is given to you just for creating an account. There are entire web communities devoted to finding and abusing these promotions so they have died out in the last few years. The top U.S. casinos online in 2013 – Bovada Casino and Betonline Casino – have took a no-deposit bonus and a deposit bonus and combined them …
