Review of How to Detect Casino Cheating at Blackjack

Over the years, Bill Zender, former Nevada Gaming Control Agent and Director of Casino Operations at the Aladdin, has been widely acknowledged as one of the most thoughtful and progressive casino insiders in the gaming business today. He has quite literally written the books on Pai Gow Poker and Blackjack card counting from the casino’s point of view. His training methods and careful mathematical analysis of casino games gave the Aladdin one of the highest hold percentages of any Nevada casino. In his latest book, Zender has tackled a taboo topic, that of the cheating of players by casinos in the game of Blackjack. It is unusual enough that someone has written a book on this controversial topic, but for it to be written by a casino insider is truly astounding, but the public is the beneficiary of Zender’s considerable expertise on the subject.

Having been a casino operator, responsible for the day to day management of everything that happens on the casino floor, a Slot Gacor gaming control agent, responsible for investigating allegations of casino cheating, and a Blackjack card counter, having made his living for a while on the players’ side of the table, Zender is uniquely qualified to tackle this topic. In his book, Zender draws on real situations he encountered during his tenure as a casino employee, actual cases he worked on as a gaming control agent, and has access to the first hand accounts of events as happened to some of the most respected names in Blackjack. All of this data, along with a light, but well considered narrative, make this book useful as well as entertaining.

The first couple of chapters focus on the history of cheating at Blackjack and the rumors that surround the industry. Zender goes to great lengths to emphasize that casino cheating, especially in the large, established gambling jurisdictions, is an extremely rare event. However, with the proliferation of legalized gambling, and the fact that careful gambling control has not spread quite so rapidly, some cheating is always a possibility.

Zender is well aware that in the hands of a …

Central banks cannot allow cryptocurrencies to develop – says the head of BIS


According to Agustin Carstens, head of the Bank for International Settlements (BIS), central banks cannot give up their role as guardians of the global financial system in favor of private cryptocurrencies.

In a speech at Princeton University, Carstens argued that private cryptocurrencies should not replace central banks. According to Bloomberg, the head of BIS compared  bitcoin dice digital currency projects to “shiny skyscrapers,” while calling central banks “trust providers for global financial infrastructure.”

While commentators such as Carstens stick to the narrative that is based on the supremacy of central banks – a system that allows 1.7 billion adults to remain out of the banking system, Bitcoin continues to get more financial adoption. The main cryptocurrency currently processes transactions worth USD 1 to 3 billion per day.


The head of BIS, like many other experts from the banking market, is not a fan of cryptocurrencies. At the beginning of his term, he bitcoin dice  also called on regulatory authorities to introduce stricter rules regarding the digital currency market.

He has now stated that central banks need digital currencies. Maybe he is changing his belief about cryptocurrencies or just admitting his ignorance. After all, Facebook Libra can see the light of day in 2020 and the emission of the digital yuan may also pose a threat to the USA.

The head of BIS only notes:

“We have a responsibility to be at the cutting edge of the debate. There is really no choice but to do so, as otherwise, events will overtake us.”

A lot is happening in the background. The European Central Bank (ECB) is currently examining ways to use the digital currency. China is another country that is working on its national digital currency, which apparently may appear on the market as early as 2020.

Meanwhile, the USA – using figuratively – is sleeping. Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin says the country is not planning to create a digital USD in the near future. It could end tragically for America. Some economists believe that Beijing may use the digital yuan in a new phase of the currency war.…

Blackjack Ballroom Casino – Review

Last updated: 16 NOV 2002Blackjack Ballroom Casino, one of the newer Microgaming-powered casinos to enter the growing online gambling market, stakes its name on fast support and payouts.

Blackjack Ballroom Casino was also the first to introduce Microgaming’s new multi-hand blackjack game, where a gambler can play up to five hands against the dealer – for serious blackjack players, this dramatically increases the number of hands one can play in a set period of time.

I decided to give it a shot shortly after it opened, making a deposit of $100 in early November 2000, for which they gave me a $50 bonus – not a bad deal at all for those who know the bonuses offered by other casinos. Any time you can make 50% on a deposit you’ve already won half the battle. (Editor’s note – Bonuses change on a regular basis – please visit the site for the latest bonus)

One of the requirements to earn the bonus is to play both deposit and bonus – a total of $150 – at least once through. Having given up blackjack for some time now, I decided to try Aces and Faces video poker – a departure from my usual Jacks or Better – after realizing the only advantage you give up is 1 coin on the full house payout – a drop from 9-1 to 8-1 – but on the other hand, getting four of a kind pays much better – as much as 800 coins for four aces!

So after meeting my obligations for the bonus, and playing on for enjoyment value, I ended up with something like $252 dollars – not bad. But for some strange reason I decided not to cash out – perhaps I forgot, or decided I would cash out later – whatever the reason, I left the balance in the account, then traveled to the US for a break.

Returning from the US broke, having dropped a couple of thousand playing blackjack and my recent favorite pai gow poker, I went back to Blackjack Ballroom Casino and was surprised to see …

Tentu, perjudian adalah hiburan juga, tetapi tidak seperti berada di Vegas, Anda menghabiskan waktu reguler di kasino, dan tujuan Anda adalah untuk menang – jika Anda tahu Anda akan kalah, Anda pasti tidak akan berjudi. Mungkin 5-10% penjudi – dan itu mungkin perkiraan liberal – menganggap perjalanan Togel ke Vegas sebagai pekerjaan – tetapi jika Anda akan berjudi dari rumah, SEMUA ORANG harus memperlakukan perjudian sebagai pekerjaan.

Ethereum Price Falls Below $300 as Cryptocurrency Market Tumbles – Says Crypto Gambling experts

The price of Ethereum has fallen below $300 as the cryptocurrency market enters a more intense bearish pullback. Except for Tether, all other top ten coins have experienced significant negative price movements within the last 24-hour trading period.

Ethereum Tumbles 17 Percent

Ethereum, the second-ranked cryptocurrency according to market capitalization sunk to its lowest 2018 valuation on Monday afternoon UTC. ETH has not traded below $300 since the start of November 2017. At press time, ETH has dipped more than 17 percent to take its 2018 decline to 60 percent.

The decline in the price of ETH is being attributed to the disillusionment of ICO investors. The sheer number of ICO exit scams and the amounts being siphoned by these pump and dump schemes has created negative sentiments in the ETH market.

Ethereum, the preferred platform for most ICO projects benefited from this fact reaching above $1,000 in February 2018. At the time, BTC was declining below $6,000. However, the tide seems to have turned as many of the ICO projects that generated interest in ETH, driving up its price have begun to cash out to cover expenses. Thus, the ETH is is starting to slide. Commenting on the issue, BloomWater Capital chief, Biswas Das said:

These startups are raising a lot of funds, but they don’t have treasury management or enough cash management experience, so they’re selling too early and causing a lot of pressure in the market. It was fine last year, but right now, the market is so fragile that it causes a lot of pressure.

The general bearishness perhaps exacerbates the ETH decline in the market occasioned by stricter regulations and the slow pace of institutional adoption. Experts believe that projects aren’t done cashing out and thus predict even more pain for ETH investors as prices sink even lower.

Bitcoin Dips More than 20 Percent in August as Altcoins Continue to Bleed

Bitcoin briefly slipped below the $6,000 mark in the early morning on Tuesday (August 14, 2018). The top-ranked cryptocurrency is now back above $6,000 at the time of writing this article. BTC has dropped …


Casinos ready luxury salons

MGM MIRAGE Inc.’s MGM Grand and Park Place Entertainment Corp.’s Caesars Palace each plan to open private gambling rooms in the fall. Such salons had been illegal in Nevada, where state law requires gambling to be public and accessible to regulators. But in 2001, the Nevada legislature heeded the cries of casinos struggling to compete with private salons overseas and voted to allow the closed-door rooms. “The persuading argument was there was a whole potential market of players that would not otherwise come to Vegas,” says Dennis Neilander, chairman of the Nevada Gaming Control Board.

The board authorized the first private gambling room, at the MGM Grand in June. It will require private salons to operate around-the-clock video surveillance cameras, so that regulators in their offices can observe the play in real-time.

Private gambling is the most deliberate effort so far by U.S. casinos to harpoon more “whales,” players with $500,000 in cash or credit who fuel casinos’ lucrative high-end games, where betting starts at $500. The Strip has been losing international whales for years to private casinos in burgeoning gaming markets such as Macau, Australia and elsewhere in Southeast Asia. For Caesars Palace and the MGM casinos, where high-end play contributes as much as 25% of revenues, overseas competitors have made the game even more volatile and risky.

Whales nearly disappeared from the Strip after Sept. 11 brought travel complications; with the stock market sputtering, they are staying away. Bear Stearns analyst Jason Ader estimates that high-end gaming by international players in Las Vegas is down 15% to 20% this year, still not fully recovered from the 75% plunge in September. Money wagered at baccarat tables — most popular with Asian high rollers — was down 62% in June compared with a year earlier, the Nevada gaming board says; casinos’ baccarat winnings for June were down 84%.

Undaunted, the MGM Grand is still hunting whales. It is remodeling its Mansion Casino wing and expects to start offering private gambling there in September. Among the changes: thick doors to keep oglers out. (Casino executives note, however, that even in high-roller …

Benny binion’s Ligaz11 Dream

The history of Benny Binion and The World Series of Poker

Lester Ben Binion later known worldwide as “Benny,” was born November 20, 1904, near Pilot Grove (1904 population: 150), Grayson County, Texas, the son of Lonnie Binion and the former Alma Willie Wilkerson.

Benny didn’t stay long in Pilot Grove. A restless boy, at age six he punched cows and traded horses. Literally, he grew up under the big Texas sky, sitting around campfires at night listening to the cowboys swap stories, watching them play cards.

From 1922 to 1946, Benny stood in the heart of Dallas, Texas, gambling, first as a “steer man;” guiding customers to his boss’ crap games, later as the man who ran them. Prominent customers included H.L. Hunt, Howard Hughes, and Sid Richardson.

Benny moved to Las Vegas in January 1947, with his beloved wife, Teddy Jane, and their five children: Barbara, Jack, Brenda, Ted, and Becky. He owned the Las Vegas Club and the Westerner before opening in 1951 what became the internationally famous Benny Binion’s Horseshoe. A true pioneer in Las Vegas, Benny helped transform a dusty, desert nowhere of 18,000 souls into a world entertainment capital with a one million plus population.

Benny supported numerous worthy charities, but also, on his own, came to the rescue of thousands of people – mostly the old and children – with his largesse.

A marketing genius (prestigious university business schools teach his methods), Benny drew more than a million people to the Horseshoe with a display, (which unfortunately is no longer there), of $1 million cash (It was 100 ten thousand dollar bills), next to which all the locals and tourists enjoy being photographed. Benny also brought the enormously popular, always sold out, National Finals Rodeo to Las Vegas, and the pulse stopping nationally televised World Series of Poker, offering millions in prize money, to his own ligaz11 casino.


Today Benny Binion’s Horseshoe stands as a bustling monument to its legendary founder. A mixture of the old (one can imagine Wyatt Earp and Wild Bill Hickock gambling here) and the new bedazzle its …

Win Cash or a Vacation from The Judi Slot Online Casino

Winter is a great time to do some traveling, and The Safari Casino wants to make it happen for one lucky player.

On November 15, The Safari Casino will be awarding a choice of $5,000 cash or a luxury vacation to either Las Vegas or Nassau, Bahamas in the casino’s private jet to one randomly drawn player.

No purchase is required to enter the contest; players simply need to be registered at The Safari Casino to be eligible. Contestants can receive extra entries for the drawing by referring friends to the casino.

For more details about the contest, go to the official rules page.

“We felt the contest was a great way to rewards our players,” says The Safari Casino manager Patrick Harington.

“While all our high rollers have come to expect the free trips in our Comp program, we wanted to give all of our players a chance at a dream vacation. We recognized that many of our players are not willing to fly right now, so we added a third choice of $5,000 cash.

“It’s simply a way of thanking the players that have chosen The Safari Casino since we opened our doors in 1997.”

In the past, the Polo Club Comp program has rewarded high rollers with an African safari, a trip to the World Series, and the Cannes Film Festival in France.

The three-day, two-night vacation giveaway isn’t the only thing The Togel Hongkong Casino has to offer these days. Players will also receive a free $50 match bonus at the casino throughout October and November.

A portion of the proceeds from The Safari Casino are donated to the Safari Wildlife Fund, which was established in 1997 to help ensure a future for many species of endangered animals.
