Casino Makeover at Victor Chandler Impresses Maus

However unlikely it may sound for an online gambling site to deliver more than their hype, Victor Chandler has exceeded our expectations. Really! We knew the team at VC were tarting up their tired old Chartwell-based online casino, but having finally got around to checking out the makeover, we were astounded!

Instant Play Blackjack, up to GBP1000 per wagerThe new VC Casino, powered by Net Entertainment, is really quite jazzy. Yes, it’s still not a Microgaming or Playtech casino with hundreds of games to choose from (and all those amazingly animated slot machines…) but, for table and card game players who just want instant gaming action with a touch of style, VCCasino is actually now hard to beat!

As Victor Chandler has a reputation that spans more than sixty years in the gambling industry you can take it as a given that they have all their back office processes and the support aspects 100%.

TXS Holdem at Victor Chandler CasinoMy pick of the card games is Txs Holdem poker – great to practice those opening hand decisions… and you can play for free or for real. There’s a good Bacarrat and even the range of Blackjack games give you some excellent wagering options, especially if you’re a system bettor.

My pick of the new VC Casino slots was probably Secrets of Horus, but the The Super Eighties and The Groovy 60s slots are fun too, and I recommend them if you’re a true slots junkie.

Great Video Poker at VCCasino Video Poker at Victor Chandler’s new Casino is also surprisingly good. My favourite was All American (pictured). It might be your too!

You can play all games for free (no registration required) or for real money (becoming a member at VCCasino is free and easy with a whole host of secure deposit options available).

Yes, there’s a £100 joining bonus if you’ve not got a VC account, but the reality is – you’re better just to join up and play… casino bonuses (and not just VC’s) are generally for the mathematically challenged (ie. stupid) and simply more hassle than they’re worth.

How to Play and Win at Craps

Craps - popular and fun at the casino!Dice can be traced to prehistoric times when primordial fortunetellers threw sacred arrows, bone, sticks and stones on the ground to predict the future for his tribe. A cubical die dating back to 600 B.C. was found in Egypt. Dice went through a long evolution of shape, size, form and markings. They were made of wood, stones, bones, animal teeth and horns, nutshells and seeds. American Indians fashioned four-sided knucklebones for dice. In Greek and Roman civilizations, dice were made of more expensive materials like ivory, precious stones and materials, and porcelain.

The game of craps first began in Roman times, but was known as “dice.” Emperors Augustin, Nero and Caligula were devoted players and even cheated at the game. Craps derived from the English game called Hazard in the 18th Century. When it came to France in the 19th Century, it was called craps, from the word “crabs,” which means pair of ones. In 1865, dice-maker John H. Winn published an improved version that led to the way the game is played today.

Craps is an easy game to learn.

How to make a “pass line” bet will get you started. Don’t be concerned with most of the other 40 bets, mainly the proposition and hard-way wagers because their odds are dreadful.

A simple pass line bet, with a low house edge, works like this: A bet is placed on the pass line before the shooter rolls. If the “come out” roll is a 7 or 11, you win. But if it comes up 2, 3 or 12, you lose. If any other number is rolled, that becomes the point number. If the shooter rolls that number again before a 7, you win even money on your pass line bet. But if a 7 comes up first, you lose.

Once the point is set, an additional bet can be made behind the pass line wager. This “odds bet” is the only wager that does not have a house edge and is paid off with true odds. Most casinos offer double odds, which allows a wager twice the pass line bet.

The key to winning is two little words: playing smart.

Other parts of the puzzle, as several experts point out, include a solid game plan, effective money management, discipline and confidence to carry out the plan and knowing how much you are ahead or behind. Most important is discipline. You must set up goals and stick to them. Remember that winning a little is much better than losing any amount.

Next is to understand the bets.

Players must know the rules and comprehend basic and not-so-basic bets. The way to upgrade your prowess is the “p” word: practice, practice, practice. And you can practice free at some Internet websites. No matter your strategy, the key to developing winning online systems is percentages. Smart players limit the risks and look for the best odds.

Optimal craps strategy is comprised of simple pass line and come bets. That’s because the house edge is small than other bets like hard-way wagers. The hard-way bet has some pretty horrible odds. For example, to roll a “hard eight,” you must roll double 4’s before the soft version (2 and 6, 3 and 5) come up or a 7. The don’t come bet must be made after the point is established. If a 7 or 11 are rolled you lose, but if a 2 or 3 comes up you win. A 12 is a standoff. You win if a 7 is rolled before the come point is repeated, but you lose if the come point appears before a 7 does.

Even though you can win consistently, no matter your game plan it is mathematically impossible to have a betting edge over the casino. But you can avoid being a loser if you: Aren’t greedy and don’t set unrealistic winning goals, forget any undisciplined urges and play to win — not to lose. One way to lose consistently is to bet the same amount. It’s all in the odds and those odds are against you winning.

There are several smart methods such as progression and regression – increasing and decreasing wagers at a fixed rate. Also be careful how you let winnings ride. That’s because the average roll of the dice is five times before a seven comes up.

Optimal Strategy for Online Video Poker

Video Poker Winning StrategyVideo Poker is simple to play but requires some knowledge and skill to master. Poker players will be familiar with the basics of video poker hand construction and rankings – and if you’re not, it can be picked up quickly!

You are dealt five cards and must decide which cards to keep and which to discard in order to stand the best chance of constructing a winning hand. Any cards discarded from the original five dealt are replaced from those remaining in the deck.

You don’t need to beat any other hand, and are paid out according to the ranking of your hand on the pay-out table. The stronger the hand the better the prize. Like all poker games the ultimate goal is to hit the Royal Flush and win a huge jackpot!

Video Poker Game Variations
The most popular and commonly played Video Poker is ‘Jacks or Better’, where you have to achieve a pair of Jacks, or better, to win a pay-out.

Most online casinos offer a good range of video poker variations including 10s or Better, Deuces Wild and Aces and Faces. The pay-out tables vary from game to game.

One popular development is the ability to play multiple lines at once, ranging from 4-line, 10-line, 25-line and even 50 and 100-line games!

No matter how many lines you play, the game is the same. In Multi-Line, your decisions will affect all lines. If you’re playing 25-line and keep a pair of Kings, while changing three cards, then on all 25 lines you retain a pair of Kings, and three new cards will be dealt for each of the 25 lines. This offers a great way for players to maximise their wins. Any guaranteed win will count on all 25 lines and stands a chance of being improved on all of them.

Some online video poker games now offer a Progressive Jackpot and can be very rewarding indeed!

Video Poker Optimal Strategy

Play Max Coins: The highest pay-out in Video Poker results from play the maximum number of coins per hand. Of course, always play within your means and keep to limits you are comfortable with. So lower your starting stakes to the minimum and try to play the maximum coins per hand if you’re looking for that jackpot pay-out!

Optimal Strategy: As with any other form of Casino gaming, when it all comes down to it you rely on your instincts and gut feelings to play video poker. If you feel lucky and get a hunch then follow it. There is a way of approaching ‘Jacks or Better’, however, that is considered to be an optimal strategy and mathematically superior to other ways of playing.  The optimal strategy is one which is played with an eye firmly on the Royal Flush – check out the following table.
