How to Win the State Lottery, Mega Millions and Power Ball

The first thing to do is to decide how much money you want to win. There are
different strategies for a particular sum. If all you want to do is win at a $1.00
scratch game you are not going to approach it as if it were a game of keno and of
course you’ll play differently if it’s the mega millions jackpot! It is a fact that the
aforementioned are three distinct games and they require you to play them in three
different ways. Let me give you an example. Do you play football the same way you
play baseball? How about basketball? Of course not, the reason being they are
different games with different rules and thus different ways of playing and winning.
Do you understand what I mean? Of course you haven’t won the game that you
want to win; you didn’t even know how to win. How can you win if you don’t know
how to go about winning! Really think about that. Yes you might know what the
winning numbers are but how can you stand a chance to win without a clear
understanding of how to win? Before I go into this system further please allow me
to digress. casino games free

First let me say that not all gambling offers the same odds of winning. Some are
much riskier than others and well some even offer complications and obstacles that
the others do not. Do not use this system for sports betting. Don’t even think about
it applying these calculated and scientific techniques to a sporting event. Eliminate
sports from this formula because they are too unpredictable and they add an
emotional choice. This system offers a cold calculated way of playing if you use it
for sports betting your emotions will cloud your judgment. Trust me love for your
favorite team will override your desire for millions. By eliminating the danger of
emotion, you are ready to move on as scientific bettor/ mathematical even. bingo games

The next thing is to stay away from the quick pick option. This is a sure fired way
to lose! Sure your government wants to see you spending its lottery receipts; if you
believe that then please stop reading because you are to stupid to use this system.
If you believe that quick pick is fair and not designed to make you lose look up the
number of winners using quick pick versus those who won without and then decide
for yourself. We all know that this country was built on the principle of competition.
Those that want to be coddled already fill our welfare rolls or is some backwards-
communist red loving slacker that belongs behind the iron curtain! If you defy
these labels if they disgust you to your very core than you have the winning attitude
that is the key aspect to this system. You are the type of person that knows nothing
in life that is appreciated is just handed over to you on a Martha Stewart designed
silver platter. You know that the riches the world has to offer come to those who
are willing to sweat to reach their goals. Apparently that is why we are here to
become winners. The one obstacle that you need to take on is a lack of money.
Money that will not be denied should not be kept from, given to anyone else but to
you.

As a goal oriented person let me ask you what are your goals? That will determine
what game and what technique you need to start applying. Are you a person that
needs enough money to buy your own private island? Are you content with retiring
from your lively hood and living on $2000.00 a week for the rest of your natural
life? Perhaps you just need enough money to allow you to open your own business
up. Perhaps the reason you play is to win enough vacation money. The reason for
your playing is another key to your winning big. No one never got anywhere
without knowing first where it is that they want to go. Figure it out for yourself and
be honest with yourself. You are only doing a disservice to yourself and your family
if you cheat here. It’s important that you do some soul searching really do a deep
gut check and decide what it is that you want for yourself and your loved ones.
What are you personally willing to do to reach those goals? How much blood, sweat
and tears are you willing to sacrifice for your dreams? Do not lose sight that it is
within your reach. You just need to apply the techniques that I will teach you.
Failure is only a result of you being not prepared combined with a losers attitude.
IT REALLY IS THAT SIMPLE. This system will not work if you do not take the
preliminary steps first. That means first things first! You have to crawl before you
can run; success is all up to you!

What makes more sense to you? Taking the money that you use for gambling*,
whatever the amount and putting that same amount aside for a few weeks, months
maybe even years. Once you have a sizeable amount, take that nest egg and bet it
all on a single game of roulette. The odds of your number coming up are 35 to 1.
The payout to you is 35 times the bet amount for $300.00 bet you stand to make
$105,000. Or with that same three hundred dollars you could buy 60 $5.00 win
$2k for life tickets. That means you have just lowered your raised your odds of
winning to 88,200 to 1 much better than the paltry 5,292,00 to 1 odds that the
state offers. Finally take that same $300.00 and put it aside until you have saved up
$1000.00 and take a gut check. Can I save up more money? Should I save up more
money or am I willing to put my skill*, desire and loved ones to the test? Do I have
the willpower to win the big one? That is a question that only you can answer…

Small Ball Poker Vs Home Run Poker, Skilled Vs Beginner

In the last post I talked about pot odds and betting. The topic today has a direct correlation to that. As you start to play a little bit more, you may have heard the term small ball poker and wondered what it was. Basically it means winning lots of smaller pots with smaller sized bets. Home run poker, on the other hand, is winning pots with larger bets. More skilled players tend to play small ball while it is a good idea for beginners to go for the home run. The reasoning is very simple and it has a lot to do with pot odds. Like I said in the previous post, poker is a very mathematical game and when employed properly can make you or save you lots of money. If you listen to Mike Caro (and you should) then folding when you’re supposed to actually makes you money as well. Below are the reasons for playing each:

Small Ball Poker: Like I said above, more skilled players tend to play this way. I know it is heavily endorsed by Daniel Negreanu and he has some videos on YouTube that talk about it as well. They tend to keep the pots a bit smaller but then win more pots with betting. Preflop, the raises tend to be in the 2.5-3x the big blind (BB) with an extra BB unit per person that may have already limped in front of you. For example, you’re playing $1/2 and you know you’re going to raise. Your raise will usually be $5-6 total. If one limper is in front of you, you’ll make it $7-8, two limpers, $9-10 etc. Now a flop comes out that you don’t think helped your opponent(s) and you want to bet (as most players do after raising preflop, firing the continuation bet). How much do you bet? In the last post about pot odds I talked about how half to two thirds is enough to make it the wrong call to chase most draw. Hands like open ended straight and flush draws are one of the exceptions as those draws are mathematically favoured against most hands. So, say you bet that $6, get called by one person and both blinds fold. That’s $15 in the pot (your bet + opponent’s call +$1SB +$2BB = $15). A correct bet would be between $8-10. You will get a surprising amount of callers a lot of the time and it’s because a lot of players ignore pot odds. Don’t be that person! I mean, sometimes if you’re the one that’s drawing you’re going to call because not everyone has the hand they’re representing. Everyone and their dog C-bets the flop now and sometimes you’ll have the best hand even with your draw. If you’re holding KQ of spades, the flop is J 10 2 with two spades, and your opponent has pocket 7’s, guess what? You are favoured to win by the river because if you hit one of 9 spades, 3 aces, 3 nines, 3 kings, and 3 queens, you will take the lead. So, you can’t lay it down every time. You don’t want it to look like you can just be run over. You could call one time and if they didn’t hit their hand, may check the turn to you. You can make a semi-bluff (a bluff that could turn into a big hand and another post topic for another time) and win the pot either by him folding, or him calling and you hit your draw.

OK, so I’ve gone off on a bit of a tangent there. Where was I? Ah yes. You’ve bet $10 into a $15 pot making the pot $25. $10 for him to call into a $25 pot is 2.5-1. If he’s drawing to an open ended or double belly buster straight, he has 8 outs and is just over 3.2-1 to hit his hand. He is not getting the proper odds to call. If you get raised and you think you are somehow raised you can fold your hand and lose your $10. What happens when you don’t play small ball, bet the pot, get raised and fold? You’ve lost another $5 on top of it that you didn’t really need to lose. Betting half to two thirds the pot will generally wield the same information as a pot sized bet will. Now, because I recommend being the tight/aggressive small ball player, you will win lots of little pots with your image and as you build your stack can open your range a little later on and really confuse the table with where you’re at. And that’s exactly what you want. A table of confused players who don’t know how to play you. So remember, keep the bets smaller and don’t worry if you get called. Like I said, many don’t take pot odds into consideration. All they see is their hand and what they think they can win if they hit their hand. What they fail to realize is two things:
1) They’re going to lose with that chase in the long run. Ah yes, the long run. Remember, the numbers are taken over a period of time but the more you play, the more you’ll see that you’ll win in these cases.
2) Even if they hit their hand they aren’t necessarily going to win any more money from you. What if they’re chasing a flush, have just check/called the flop and turn to hit their card on the river, and now lead out with a bet? Chances are pretty good they’re not going to get any money from you because you can put them on that hand and fold. But the majority of the time their card won’t come and they’ve lost all this money on a draw they should have folded two streets ago. They’ll cry about how unlucky they are and you’ll just smile to yourself as you rake in some chips.

Home Run Poker: Definitely the style you should employ when you’re going against someone you know is a very good player or if you yourself are just starting out. I also only recommend playing a select few hands and playing them fast when you get them. In Phil Hellmuth’s book “Play Poker Like the Pros” he recommends beginners play his “Top Ten Hands”. They are: AA, KK, QQ, JJ, 10’s, 9’s, 8’s, 7’s, AK and AQ. I like this idea. Yes, it’s a very tight way to play but until you get some experience, see which hands are good hands to play in certain situations, get better at reading opponents and things of that nature I’d recommend this style too. I don’t necessarily agree with playing 9’s, 8’s, and 7’s too fast though. If you have a raise and a reraise in front of you, it’s still a good idea to fold those hands and same with AQ. As you may have read from my Top Overrated Hands post, AQ is a dangerous hand to get too involved with and while you can raise it and reraise it with position, be wary on the flop if someone comes hard at you. Also, what are you going to do when the flop comes A Q 10 and you’re holding two 7’s? Probably throwing them in the muck at any sign of an opponent wanting to play the pot. Or if you have KK, you’ve raised preflop, two people call, and an ace hits the flop? You can bet out but proceed with caution if you get either raised or they just call. One probably has an ace and you should be ready to fold your hand.

So, how should you raise preflop? In small ball I suggested 2.5-3x the BB. Now, I would suggest 5-7x the BB. Seem like a lot? Well, it is. You’re going to chase out those that are holding hands like QJ os, maybe KJos and maybe even some middle to smaller pairs. Your tight image plus the bigger sized bets will help you win a few more pots preflop. It’s a fact that more skilled players don’t want to play big pot poker, especially preflop. They want to see flops in position and try to outplay you later. They like to be the ones to put you to a decision, not have their own decisions taken away from them. If you bet $10 preflop and get a caller, how much do you bet on the flop? Right now you have $23 in the pot (your bet + his call + the two blinds = $23) so right here I would go ahead and bet $20-23. If they didn’t have a pair preflop, remember the chances of hitting a pair on the flop are about 33%. In other words, chances are they missed. If they had a pair lower than yours then they’ll hit their set 1 out of 8 times, or 11%. If they do hit, you’re probably going to lose some money. That happens and unless you get a great read on the person when they raise, you’ll probably end up paying them off. But for the most part they’re going to fold when they miss and you will take down a decent pot. (Warning: When you go into a brick and mortar casino to play the $1/2 games, you’ll notice that there’s a lot of preflop raising to $10, $15, and even over $20. I don’t understand it and when I’ve asked people at the table it’s because they say they want action. Now, to me that seems almost like an oxymoron because if you want action you bet less. Or they say they want to gamble. It’s not gambling, it’s just dumb betting and if they really wanted to get action or gamble with those stupid bets they’d move up to $2/5 where the bets make sense. And lots of people call those dumb bets with marginal hands. I don’t get it. I’m not throwing in $20 with KJos when my hand could very well be dominated but that’s me I guess)

OK, so there you have it. Home Run, or bigger bets for the less experienced player until you get that feel for the game, for your opponents, and especially a feel for your own game. As you start to learn and get that experience, you can start seeing a few more flops with a few more hands (playing some suited connectors, Ax suited etc.) while betting a little less. Remember, you’re still getting the same information with those smaller bets and you’re still making it incorrect for your opponent to call. As I’ve pointed out before, your main goal in poker is to make correct decisions but also to capitilize on opponents’ mistakes. Making them do something incorrectly is making money for you

Casino Gambling-The Games Gamblers Play

When most people think of Casino gambling, probably the first thing which comes to mind is Las Vegas, or Atlantic City. Imagine of bright lights, the sounds of hustle and bustle, and rows and rows of slot machines often come to mind. This is not all there is to casino gambling. The article will discuss casino gambling, as well as some of the games casino gamblers play.

By definition, an casino is basically a building that accommodated gambling. Patrons are often offered the opportunity to gamble by playing many games of chance, or some of skill also. Casino gambling games most often have mathematically calculated odds that ensures the casino retains at least a small advantage which is referred to as the “edge”.

Slot machines are a common gambling accommodation provided to patrons of most casinos. Slot machines are coin operated gambling apparatus, with three reels that spin when the lever is pulled. Most slot machines have a currency detector installed, that validates the coins inserted for play. Slot machines pay off based on how the three reels stop. Each will has a different pattern or symbol visible on the front, and pay offs are based on these patterns or symbols.

The game of poker is also popular in gambling casinos, and can be played in many different styles. Most commonly, the players in a poker game all have fully, as well as sometimes partially concealed, playing cards, and make bets into a pot based on their cards. The player or players which have the best poker combination of playing cards wins the pot in at the end of each hand.

Many patrons of casinos chose to play a dice game called craps. It is also a very popular game among casino gamblers. All the players in the game have the opportunity to bet money against the casino, gambling on the outcome of the roll or series of rolls. The rules of craps can vary from casino to casino, but there are some that will remain common. There are no strategies involved in betting on craps. Its a game of chance, all based on the outcome of the roll of two dice.

Of all casino gambling games, the roulette wheel is often considered the signature casino gambling game. In the game of roulette, the dealer will spin a roulette wheel. The wheel has 37-38 clearly marked numbered pockets where a ball will stop. The pockets are labeled from 1-36 and are alternated between black and red with number one starting with red. Also there is a green pocket, marked with the number zero.

Casino Gambling vs Sports Gambling

The crucial difference between sports betting and casino gambling is that no amount of knowledge about slot machines or the roulette table will allow you to always stay ahead of the house, unless you’re some kind of gifted savant – and as soon as the casino realises you are, they’ll ban you anyway. However, with sports gambling, you can bring to bear all your knowledge of the game, the teams and the players on making informed, calculated bets and thereby potentially make a considerable amount of money. For instance, thousands of people around the world stand to make some good money in Soccer World Cup Betting this year.

Whilst at a casino there are fixed betting rules, many sports bookmakers will along you to bet on just about anything. In roulette you can only bet on the numbers or color that the ball will land on, not how many times the ball will go around the wheel, for example. With a football game you can bet on the final result, the half-time result, who will score the first touchdown, and so forth. There are even a range of more outrageous proposition bets that you can make, such as how many times the head coach will throw his hands up in the air in despair! If it can be bet on, chances are there will be someone willing to take your bet.

You can also adjust your bets during the game, taking into account the action that has already occurred. Of course the odds will change accordingly, but the opportunity is available to you. At the roulette table, once the ball has entered the wheel, you cannot change your bets.

A final difference is that you can place sports bets remotely. You can be watching the game at home, while placing bets via the internet. This is illegal when it comes to casinos. You have to physically be on the casino property in order to place any bets.

How to Play 8 Ball for Money

8 Ball is a great game for beginners. The rules are very simple and can be played by either 2 or 4 people. The object of the game is to sink all your balls then the 8 ball. 8Ball is not a game you are going to find in a casino, unless there is a poll tournament going on, but the game can be gambled in very simply.

Game Play

1) Before the game can start the balls must be “racked up”. To do this you take the balls and put them in the rack. The rack is a triangle that can be found near almost every pool table. The 8 Ball goes in the center of the rack, the one ball goes in the front and a solid and a striped ball must go in the other 2 corners. The rest of the balls go in an alternating pattern. It is during this time that if a bet on the game is going to be made it should be done. In pool gambling can be done on almost any aspect of the game who will win, what color will be the first to be sunk or who will sink the first ball. Some people like to make several bets like who will win and a side bet on who will scratch first, or if a player is going to attempt a difficult shot you can gamble on if they will make it or not.

2) The Rack gets set at the lower end of the table with the 1 ball facing the front. Every pool table has a dot at one end of the table this is called the foot. The foot is the spot where the one ball should be placed with the rack. After the one ball is in place slowly remove the rack without disturbing the balls, making sure that all the balls are snug up against each other.

3) The next step is to decide who is going to break. If you are playing in a bar and they are playing elimination, this is where the winner stays on the table and the next person in line plays him, then the winner of the last game generally goes first.

4) For the break the cue (White) ball must be behind the head string. The head string is a line that runs the width of the table at the head of the table. The purpose of the break is to hit the racked balls and spread them out on the table.

5) Players alternate turns until someone sinks a ball. Once a ball has been sunk you are now assigned what group of balls are yours. Whichever ball either stripe or solid you sink is what you are. If you get one of your balls in during your turn then you go again and again until you miss.

6) If during your turn you sink one of the other players balls you do not get to go again, and if you sing the Cue ball the other player must place it behind the head string and it must be shot past the head string before it contacts any balls, but the player can place it anywhere behind the line he wishes.

7) Once all 7 of your balls are in the pockets you can start to shoot for the 8 ball. Most people do not call their shots during 8 Ball, but the 8 ball must be called before you shoot, and if it goes into the wrong pocket you lose the game.

8) Is at any time you sink the 8 Ball before you are done sinking your other 7 balls you automatically lose the game.
