WIzard of Gems Slot

Wizard of Gems Slot: Funny and Relaxing

I just finished playing the slot game Wizard of Gems on Cloudbet and would like to share my experience.

Wizard of Gems is a game with high quality graphics and sound effects that seem to have an nearly mesmerizing effect. With repetition I found myself feeling somewhat relaxed as a result. The wizard is cute and has a sense of humor. I noticed that this game is appropriate for all ages. In addition to appealing to the seasoned player, I believe this game would also be of appeal to younger audiences and is completely acceptable for all ages. It is simple and clean, family friendly.

Something I particularly liked was that when I got the bonus level, winning ten spins, the wizard was rather generous in changing random symbols into wilds. I felt like it was obvious he was on my team and this resulted in me making a significant amount in winnings, $205 to be precise.

Features that made this game a hit for me included the fact it has an ‘autoplay’ option, providing the option of multitasking, and that it has tumbling reels. Tumbling reel games are my absolute favorite because it feels like you are getting extra turns for free, increasing your chances of winning within one paid spin.

Wizard Of Gems Slot


Based on my experience overall, I would recommend Wizard of Gems on CloudBet, particularly for those seeking a visually pleasant slot game with minimal yet pleasant sound effects. I would definitely recommend this slot to those seeking a game that is completely appropriate for all ages, a clean and cute game that is easy to follow and understand, and to those gamers who have an affinity for collecting gems!

The reasons why I buy Virtual stuff

I love slots and casino games. I play them a lot. I play them in online casinos, but I mostly play them on Social Casino sites. I play slots developed by companies like Playtika and the like.

Why do I play social casino games? Because I find them to be more entertaining than the real thing. I find them to be more entertaining simply because they are! They do not gobble all your money just for the sake of it. Most of them gives back a lot of entertainment value for the money invested (in case you invest a few bucks in them from time to time like me). Some of them gives you very interesting bonus games, some of them gives you tournaments built in the experience of the games.

Do I play slots to win money? No. I play slots for the entertainment value. You can get many more hours of play from online slots for less than the price of night at the movie.

But above all, I buy virtual stuff because behind all those amazing games there are real people and real companies that need to make money if we want them to continue to give us good entertainment bang for the buck.

I have always been a little bit jealous of people earning a living from doing something they love. So, if we want those same people to continue to give us amazing games and entertainment value, we have to give a little bit back to them.

I dont mean that you should be buying stuff from those games every day of the week. I buy stuff from time to time. I  dont buy stuff full price. I like to wait for sales. BIG sales. Not just any sales.

It’s great when I can put my hands on a lot of virtual tokens or the like for a very good price. For me, it’s like saying to those guys: “Thanks for the wonderful work that you do!! And keep it up!! We really enjoy your games! Thanks for making them!”

So next time you play and really enjoy one of those games, think a little bit about the people behind those games. And if you would like to keep enjoying these games, send them a tips, just to say Thank You.



Why Roulette is Still the Casino King

If the odds are good and the game is exciting, we don’t care if it contains cards, wheels, electronic boards or even mobiles when it comes to casinos.

And when it comes to wise casino choices, roulette is actually one of the best casino games in the world. While it might not be as modern as a comparative casino game such as Wheel of Fortune, roulette is still one of the top dogs when it comes to offering odds and attracting punters.

But why is a game devised in Paris in 1796 still as popular today as it ever was? Well, for many reasons. Although we can’t account for personal tastes, we thought we’d run through some of the reasons roulette is still a casino game worth playing.

Online Roulette’s Odds

Money By fsecart

When it comes to betting options, few games can match roulette. Unlike blackjack or baccarat, there are multiple ways to win on a single spin and, what’s more, there’s a betting option for everyone.

For example, if you’re a low stakes player, you can stick to the outside of the betting board and enjoy some even money betting. For those with deeper pockets and a higher tolerance for variance, the inside bets can furnish you with returns as high as 35:1. Indeed, some of the most impressive casino wins throughout history have taken place on a roulette table.

A good story is that of billionaire football club owner Mike Ashley. When he’s not running Newcastle United, Ashley loves a spot of gambling and, according to bgo’s favourite roulette wins of all time, he once walked away from a London casino with £1.3 million.

After betting on all iterations of the number 17 (something only possible in roulette), Ashley hit the number he was looking for and promptly cashed in his seven-figure win.

Options, Options, Options

Aside from offering a wide range of in-game betting options, roulette has now become a major player in the online casino world and that’s allowed developers to experiment with a raft of interesting innovations.

For example, if you log into the aforementioned bgo casino you’ll see a huge choice of roulette options. From 3D roulette and a Marvel-themed table to Playtech’s multi-wheel roulette that allows you to stake as little as £1 on up to six roulette wheels, the list of options is almost endless.

In fact, it’s not just at bgo where you’ll be spoilt for choice. Run through Gala or Bet Victor as other examples, and you’ll find at least half a dozen roulette variants on each site. While the number of games isn’t as extensive as the number of options in the slots world, it’s certainly impressive and another reason why roulette is the perfect game for players of all persuasions.

Roulette is the Most Realistic Way to Bet Online









Virtual Reality” (CC BY 2.0) by  Phillie Casablanca

Live dealers are another reason why roulette is still as popular today as it ever was in the past. Thanks to the combination of web streams, RFID chips, trained croupiers and some slick software, online players can now plug themselves into realistic roulette games.

But that’s not all, while live dealer tables are the in thing with online casinos at the moment, things are set to get even more interactive thanks to virtual reality. iGaming companies such as Microgaming are already experimenting with virtual reality roulette.

First put on show during the 2015 ICE Gaming Exhibition, Microgaming’s VR Roulette harnesses the power of Oculus Rift and Leap Motion 3D to create a virtual casino environment. Almost as realistic as the real thing, the software won the Digital Gaming Innovation of the Year award and looks set to revolutionise the online roulette industry for good.

As you can see, roulette in all its forms is a great game to play. Whether you’re a low roller looking for some entertainment or a big fish looking for big wins, the game is fantastic even if it doesn’t involve a deck of cards.

Cloud Quest Slot

Cloud Quest: An amazing new video slot machine!

I recently finished playing a new slot game on CloudBet.com called Cloud Quest and would like to share my experience playing it. I found this game to be quite exciting and enjoyable. Providing a good balance of being both challenging and rewarding, I would highly recommend it to any fellow slot enthusiast as I intend to play it again myself.

Several components of this game were of appeal to me, beginning with the graphics and sound. A slot game must have visual and auditory appeal to keep my attention, and Cloud Quest provided both the appeal and quality in this area.

Next, the design of the game was unique and engaging, providing the feel of an actual video game with progressive features such as levels to work toward, the option of a variety of characters and a dashboard from which you make your bet selections.

Cloud Quest Video Slot

This game further stands apart from other slots I’ve played by providing the opportunity to win on qualifying lines going vertically, horizontally and diagonally. Also, with each turn you have a new and different opportunity to get to the bonus round with the requirements changing each spin. I actually got a chance at the bonus round on my very last turn, an experience I was most pleased to encounter. It appeared that much thought went into this component of the slot, again providing a video game feel as I selected my character that then worked to defeat component monsters.

I like staying with the same slot machine for a while rather than going to many different ones and I was able to play Cloud Quest for a little over half an hour before running out of money. I attribute going broke to my poor bet selections toward the end because the slot certainly provided plenty of chances for me to stay in the game, had I bet more wisely. My only disappointment was failing to reach level 2 before my time had ended. I was half way there and highly curious to know what it had in store, a factor most key in influencing my desire to play Cloud Quest again. This was a slot well worthwhile and I am happy to have had the opportunity to play.

Visionary iGaming Blackjack Early Payout

Blackjack Early Payout Strategy – A Brief Introduction

For years, people have tried to create different Blackjack variants in an attempt to try to make the game more interesting and to make it more appealing for certain type of players that left the game because either, they lost interest in the game or, to try to get the interest of players that are not actually Blackjack players, but still, are interested in casino games. I have tried a few of those variants, but my interest stopped on one in particular: Blackjack Early Payout.

Blackjack early payout, created by Visionary IGaming in 2010, is definitively the best Blackjack variant ever created. I believe that it is played with live dealers only, for I have yet to find a RNG version of the game, which is not actually a bad thing.

Every players hand is played automatically by the dealer according to an optimal basic strategy. So you can place your bet, let it go and be sure that you will always have the same 0.5 per cent house edge, without any mistakes in the strategy. But not every decisions are left to the perfect strategy. If the player decide to take another decision like holding your hand when you should hit, you can do so by clicking the appropriate button. The new card will appear as a ghost card and your total will stay the same. The new card is not counted for your hand. You can also decide if you want to split, or double down. If you do not take any decisions in the allowed time, the decision highlighted in blue is the decision that will be played and that will count for your hand.

A very interesting aspect of the Blackjack Early Payout variant is that there is no limit of people that can play at the same table. There are 3 betting boxes on the table, and you can bet for up to 3 hands at the same time, and everybody is actually betting the same hands. Only the decision you take can change the game, and for you only. I have noticed also that the minimum bet on Blackjack early payout tables are much smaller that regular tables. I have not found yet a table minimum less that 5$ a hand, but Blackjack early payout tables offer hands starting at 1$ a hand, which is very convenient for smaller bankroll gamblers.

You can also find on the table 2 side bets, the Pairs and the Rummy. If you want you can take those bets, but I wont be talking about them here as these bets are always suckers bets, with an enormous house edge.

The best aspect of this Blackjack variant is the Payout button. This button is the key to the strategy of this game. It is the button that give you a chance to maximize your winnings and cut short your losses.

The right play for the current hand is highlighted in blue. The Payout button is located on the right.

The right play is highlighted in blue. The Payout button is located on the right.





While playing the hand, the amount in the button will change with every cards played on the hand according to the odds of winning the hand against the house.

In this series of articles, I will not be writing about the game of Blackjack or the Basic Strategy itself, but I will be focusing on the option of the early payout. I strongly believe that it is this part of the game that where the whole strategy of the game take place.

Part one of the strategy will be published soon! Stay tuned!

In the meanwhile, you can watch a video of the game played here!!

The Power Of Triggers

Triggers – Their Power in Casino Gambling

Triggers are an important parts of being a professional gambler. But what exactly is a trigger in Casino gambling? Let’s see what it is and how they works.

A lot of saying from  gambling forums is that triggers are just another part of the gambler’s fallacy and that it only makes you lose more slowly. But, as those who don’t believe in professional gambling, mostly “maths” people, will tell you that you are still going to loose. Because the house edge always get you.

If I am here writing about it, is probably because I don’t believe so. I believe that triggers are an important parts of any professional gambler’s method of play. Of course, you cannot use triggers on all the casino games. If we take the example of Blackjack, you could not wait for any kind of triggers to happen before playing a hand. You would not be allowed to wait hands after hands before placing a bet. The dealer would simply not allow you to wait that much before placing a bet. You would be asked to leave your seat to a betting player. If you would play online, it would not be long before you would get disconnected from the table for being idle too long.

Some games, though, are especially good for trigger players. If you play in a brick and mortar casino, Craps and Roulette are some of them. In Roulette, you can easily step aside from the table, wait for your trigger, and when it comes, you can join the action for the number of spins that you want, and then move away from the table and wait again for your trigger.

Online, Baccarat is also a good game to play if you are a triggers player. The good thing about online Baccarat is that you don’t occupy any seats. There can be as much players as the casino wants at the table because every players play the same hands. So, you can actually just stand there and wait for your trigger before placing a bet. The worst that can happen is that you are being taken to the lobby from time to time because of being idle for too long, but you can easily reconnect to the same table.

But what exactly is a trigger. I define a trigger in Casino gambling the following way: A series of results of the game defined by some rules, that, if it happens triggers a special way to bet based on special betting rules.

A very simple example is is like the following: Let say that your trigger rules says to wait for 3 consecutive black numbers to appear on the roulette wheel before starting to bet, and then your special betting rules says: Bet on the color red. Your trigger is the 3 consecutive black numbers and the special rule following the trigger is to bet on the color red. Of course, this is a very simplistic example of what an actual trigger could be.

Triggers can be very simple. Or they can be very complex. Actually, what gamblers using triggers are trying to achieve is to take a special event that happens often (or in some cases, for patient gamblers, not so often) and bet on or against some events that do, or do not happen after the trigger event.

I find that the best games for trigger players are the game of Craps and Roulette. There are so much possible bets on the layouts of those games that you have a multitude of possibilities for triggers.

On roulette, you could create triggers on the outside even bets, like the black and the red, the odd and the even, etc… You could also create triggers on the dozens or the columns, you could also create triggers on the inside single numbers. There are a lot of methods and matrix that people are playing as triggers on the numbers, and some of them seems to be pretty neat.

Triggers a real fun way to play casino games. And they can bring you a tidy profit too if you find the right game and the right triggers for you.

In future posts I will talk about my own search for the perfect trigger in the game of Baccarat.

Roulette: The most exciting game on the casino floor!

In the modern era, more and more people are playing casino games. Whether they enjoy playing from the comfort of their own home, travelling to famous establishments all over the world or simply attending their local casino, games are becoming a lot more popular. One of the most popular games is roulette. This is due to a number of reasons, including the simple nature of the game, ease of access and variations of roulette. We take a look at just why roulette is regarded as one of the most exciting games on the casino floor.
So, just why is roulette so exciting? Well, it’s a continuous game. It isn’t like slots at all and you physically control your stake – i.e you place it on a certain outcome rather than depending on a random slot machine to churn out lines. That way, you can place bets based on your own interpretation of the game. Many people choose to partake in 32Red’s selection of roulette games before settling on a particular type of roulette, largely due to the vast number of different types of roulette game on offer.

If you want to play roulette based on your favourite colour and simply stake wagers on red, you can do. If you want to place wagers on your grandchildren’s birthdates, you can also do that. The roulette table offers so many options and so much value – which is one of the key reasons as to why so many people play. It’s completely up to you and to an extent, you control the board. Meanwhile, if you’d rather practice before you play for real money, websites such as Fortune Palace allow you to play for fun before staking any funds.
Another key reason why it’s incredibly exciting is the social aspect of the game. In land-based casinos – and online establishments to a certain level – roulette is widely regarded as “the” social game. It’s incredibly easy to play and that appeals to both the casino novice and roulette aficionado. Many people use the live chat facility on online roulette games, including those at Euro Palace, in order to communicate with other players and the dealer. This setting is superb and helps to create a much more realistic atmosphere in the online establishment.

The progressive nature of roulette also helps to add to the excitement and drama on each and every spin. Whilst a spin on the slot machines is over very quickly, the roulette spin builds up anticipation as the ball is moving around the wheel. At 32Red, there are plenty of different roulette rooms available – including American roulette, European roulette and Premier roulette.
All of these have the same, generic outline but vary slightly. For example, American roulette has ‘0’ and ’00’, whilst European roulette simply has a single ‘0’. These slight differences make significant changes to the gameplay and contribute to the excitement of the roulette table. It would be foolish to suggest that such small differences are a key reason why the excitement is ramped up, but they certainly play a role in the build-up and gives punters an extra thing to consider when placing their stake.



Baccarat is a boring casino game

Baccarat is such a boring game. When you take a good look at it, it’s so simple and mind numbing that all I want to do is to fall asleep after a few hands. If you have ever played it online with live dealers, even them looks pretty bored when dealing the cards, and some of them are even yawning so much that you think they will fall asleep in the middle of the shoe. But on the other side, it is the primary game I have chosen for my adventure into becoming a professional gambler. The second I have chosen is Roulette. But we will talk about Roulette another time.

Why choose Baccarat when there are more exciting games around the casino floor to play. Well, first, because being a professional gambler is not about excitement. It is actually far from it. Being a professional gambler is about looking for the best games that offers the best odds of winning against the house on games that have been designed to make you lose more than you will ever win.

You might think that Baccarat offer an exact 50/50 chances of winning, because its either the player or the banker that wins and ties are a push. But nothing could be farther from the truth! The game has a built-in house edge which is the following: 1.06% on banker bets, 1.24% on player bets, and 14.36% on ties.

But what does this all means? It means that the rules of Baccarat have been designed in a way to produce a very small advantage for the house in any case that you would bet either banker or player. The game is designed so that the banker will win 50.68% of all hands that do not result in a tie, and that the player will win 49.32%. If you would be using 100 chips to bet against these percentages would show that you would expect to loose 50.68 and win 49.32. If you subtract one of the other, you would arrive to a difference of 1.36 against the player.

Of course you are gonna say: Why not always bet on the banker if it wins 50.68% of the time! You would be sure in the long run to make money. Well, don’t worry, the casinos are pretty smart about this, and this is why they charge a 5% commission on bankers bet, in order to tilt the advantage on their side.
Let’s see what this commission do to your gambling bankroll: 5% commission means that for every chip of your 100 chips that you bet on the banker and that you win, you will get back 0.95 chip. You should win in the long run 50.68% of the time. If we multiply 0.95 by 50.68, we get 48.15. If we make the difference between this amount and the player edge of 49.32, then the result is an house advantage of 1.17% on bankers bets.
I wont even go into explaining the tie bet. Never bet on this. It’s a sucker’s bet with a house edge of 14.4%!!!
So, why choose Baccarat? Well, the first reason is that it is a game that has a low house edge, and it is a game that will always keep the edge because there are no player decisions involved in the game process, unlike Blackjack, where if you want to get the best edge, you have to play a perfect Basic Strategy every hand.
The second reason is that it is a game that evolves in what I call a “finite” system. What I mean by that is that there is a beginning and an end to a Baccarat shoe. The game start at the beginning, and finish at the end. Unlike roulette, where every spin is an independant result, the next Baccarat hand played is alway relevant to the cards that have been already played. I prefer to try to find a betting method that will suit my style of play inside a finite system. It also has nice indicators called Roads. I don’t use them, but still, I find them nice to watch.
The third reason is that Baccarat has been very well designed from the start. So well designed, that it actually is an almost perfect 50/50 game. If it wasn’t for the ties, in the short to long run, the game would almost always finish equal banker to player something like 40 banker\40 player if we count 80 hands on a 8 deck shoe.
The forth reason is that Baccarat is a high volatility game. As all professional gamblers knows, volatility in a casino game cannot be changed, but it can be influenced. Volatility can be used to make better bet selections.
That is why Baccarat is my main gambling game. And I will talk about it more in future posts.


Casino Bonus

Should you accept online casinos deposit bonus?

When you first open a account at online casinos and poker sites, you get most of the time welcomed with very interesting first deposit bonus. Those bonuses will give you the opportunity to double your first deposit up to a certain amount. As an example, if you deposit 100$ in your account, the casino will double it up and turn your 100$ into 200$. Casinos wont permit you to double up any amount. These bonuses have limits, so you wont be able to deposit 2000$ to get 4000$.

But are theses bonuses really worth it? It all depends on what kind of player you are. When you decide to take the bonuses, there are always small print attached to it. And before taking the bonus, you really have to take the time to read it. They are not giving you money for free. Most of the time there are a lot of strings attached to the bonus before you can withdraw either your funds, and the bonus you received with your deposit.

One of the main string attached to these bonuses, is that you will have to gamble a certain number of times the amount  in your account before you will be able to withdraw any funds from it.  It all differs from a casino to another, but you can know that most of the time the bigger the bonus, the bigger the strings attached to it.

I have seen some casinos offering very big bonus amount but, to be able to withdraw the money, you had to gamble that money 100 times. Which mean that if you deposit 1000$, you will have to gamble 100,000$ before you can withdraw anything, which will give you the best chance to loose your initial deposit. The smaller bonuses usually offer the best rules before withdrawing the money. I have seen bonuses up to 100$ but with a rule that you had to gamble it only 5 times before withdrawing it. Its makes things more interesting as you will have to gamble only 500$ before you can withdraw your funds.

You have to be careful also about to what games the bonus will apply. I have seen casinos where they calculate the money you gamble only on slots machine games. Table games seems to be less and less counted in casinos toward the accumulation of your gambled bonus money.

But, at last, should you take the bonus or not. It all depends on how you intend to gamble. If you are a casual gambler, looking for a good way to double your money to gamble for entertainment, and don’t mind waiting to withdraw your funds or losing your bankroll, then I believe that it can be a pretty good deal.

If, like me, your are trying to gamble professionally, then it is definitively not a good deal. Why? Because on some casinos, you will have to play a lot of slots before being able to get the bonus, but you risk loosing it and your initial deposit before you can withdraw it. So, if you gamble to get your best chance to win, you should not take the bonuses offered by the casino so that you can play any games you like and also that you can be able to withdraw your winnings any time you want.



BitCasino.io now offering 6 new Video Slot Machines to it’s games selection












BitCasino.io, the Bitcoin only casino, is now offering to its players six new video slots added to its other games selection. The six video slot machines offered are Stellar Stones, Reel Fear, Flaming Dragon, Masters of the Sky, House of Freaks and Animal Party.

I am not really a video slot machines guy, I prefer a lot more table games, or at minimum games that require a minimum of strategy like Video Poker or Video Blackjack, but after learning about those new games, I wanted to take a look at them and see for myself if there was any gaming value in them.

Stellar Stones Video Slot Machines

In Stellar Stones, as I understand it, you are a ship in space and try to make it big by catching matching stone. Graphics are not the best that I have seen and gameplay becomes a little bit boring after a while. The background music is pretty nice though. A little bit like new-age music. Pretty relaxing, but not enough to keep me playing the game.



Reel Fear Video Slot Machines

Reel Fear is a little more interesting. Although it’s the same concept as Stellar Stones, I found the graphics to be pretty neat, and the background music and spinning sound effects really sets for an horror-mystery scene. Even if it is only a regular slot machine, it kept me playing more than Stellar Stones. I might actually get back to it in the future if I ever need a slot machine fix.



FlamingDragons Video Slot Machines


Flaming Dragons offer a fantasy “Dungeons & Dragons” style environment with good graphics and background music. The music is nice, although the “Free Spins” music is a little bit annoying. It didn’t hold my attention as much as Reel Fear.



MasterOfTheSky Video Slot Machines

Masters of the Sky…. Just don’t go there. Period. I don’t know if it’s me…. but I just could not find the theme in this slot machine. Background music was nice thought. But nothing to make me stay there more than 10 seconds. Spinning sound is pretty annoying.





HouseOfFreaks Video Slot Machines

I don’t know why House Of Freaks reminded me of old pinball machines. Something in the 50’s or 60’s. I don’t know if it’s the colors or the icons on the slot reels, or the ballerina dancing at the right of the reels. For me, it’s only OK. Nothing much.




AnimalParty Video Slot Machines


Animal Party offers the same kind of slot than Master of the Sky and House of Freaks. Not the most exciting slots out there. Pretty much the basic stuff. Not much fluff to keep the game exciting.





BitCasino.io offers a big selection of video slot machines. Although most of them are the really the basic type. I hope that they will be able to offer a little more story driven video slot machines like Betsoft’s Whospunit, or The Slotfather, offered by the majority of online casinos.

Bitcasino.io is an online casino for bitcoin players only! You can deposit, play and withdraw money with bitcoins – the only currency accepted at BitCasino.io. Bitcoin is a type of digital currency in which encryption techniques are used to regulate the generation of units of currency and verify the transfer of funds, operating independently of a central bank.
