Top 3 Reasons to Play at Online Casinos Vs Land Based Casinos

Top 3 Reasons to Play at Online Casinos Vs Land Based Casinos  

Depending on whom you are and if you enjoy gambling, you have probably visited a land based casino at least once. For the regulars out there who enjoy playing at casinos and go there often, I have complete respect for those people because the satisfaction and joy    online casino payment gateway  of gambling at casinos is unbeatable. However, I am going to talk about the 3 main reasons of playing at online casinos, and by the time I am done, you may never play at a land base casino again.

First of all let’s talk about bonuses at land based casinos. When you first walk into a land based casino for the first time, you head over to the desk sign up and they give you a rewards card. They might say like “good luck” then they proceed to the next person in line. Well there is something wrong about this scenario, a rewards card is worth nothing and you did not receive any free money when signing up. Well at online casinos they treat you as if you were walking down the red carpet, because at online casinos, they give you massive bonuses when you first sign up and deposit. On top of that, they enroll you automatically into a generous rewards program.

Next, the convenience at online casinos is unreal. Just imagine getting up from bed, wearing your pajamas and taking some spins at the online slot game with real money. You could win progressive jackpots that are in the millions from the comfort of your own home. This brings another point that the progressive slot machines in land based casinos are much smaller because there is only a limited amount of machines that count towards it. Whereas at online casino’s, the slot games are on a big network, therefore thousands of players are increasing the progressive slot jackpots by the second. In fact, in October 2011, a casual slot player with initial of A.D. won $5.2 million dollars at a progressive slot game called Mega Moolah.

Moreover, the payout percentages at online casinos are a lot higher compared to land based casinos. A payout ratio is the expected amount of cash a player will receive over a long period of time. Most players don’t realize the payout ratio when they play slots at land based casinos. It should be one of the most important factors when deciding which to play. Just think about it, the average payout ratio at a land based casino is 80-85% which is horrendous. This means, that if you were to wager $1000 at a land based casino, you could expect to get back $800-850. Land based casinos don’t advertise these numbers to the public because they are really low, it is actually embarrassing. At online casinos, you can expect to get 95-97% payout ratios, which translates to $950-$970 back on your $1000 deposit. It will be much more profitable to play at an online casino in the long run and your money will stretch further.

Hierarchy of Power in the Universe

Hierarchy of Power in the Universe  

Most people consider political, economical or media power as something to be sought for. True power is beyond all these and depends solely on one’s spiritual level.

Actually there are six types of power in the universe. The strength of the power increases with the power being   evolve power   more subtle. Let us examine each one of these types of power.

Physical: This is the lowest in the hierarchy of power in the universe as it is also the most gross. This includes power in things such as:

A physical weapon used to kill

Political power

The limitation of this power is that it can act only at the gross/physical level. For example, if one cannot see the person or the target, then the physical weapon will not be able to find its target.

Physical and Mantra: When we combine subtle force with physical force then the result is far more effective. In ancient times, when arrows were shot from a bow, a mantra was also uttered. Due to the mantra, the name of the enemy would get recorded and the arrow would find its target even if the target were a ghost hiding in the  of hell. This was due to the subtle energy, which accompanied the arrow. Nevertheless, at times, in spite of both the physical and the subtle mantra being present, one does not achieve complete success. At such times, a more subtle means should be used as given below.

Mantra (only): By using more powerful mantras, enemies can be vanquished by just mantras alone.

Contact: If a highly spiritually evolved person (above the spiritual level of 70%) touches something, that item will be able to have the power to vanquish ghosts. However, contact in this context is not limited only to touch. A person will be benefited when coming into contact with a spiritually evolved person in any one of the following ways. They are when a spiritually evolved person:

Remembers you.

Checks any matter that has been done by you.

Is informed about your situation or a problem that you are undergoing.

Speaks on the phone to you.

Resolve: As a Saint progresses spiritually beyond the spiritual level of 80%, His mind goes towards a thoughtless state. At this point a mere thought like ‘may it occur’ in the mind of an evolved person is sufficient for the occurrence of the event. Nothing else is required. This resolve is used only according to God’s wish.

Picking Christmas Gifts for Mum and for Other Family Members

Picking Christmas Gifts for Mum and for Other Family Members

  

There is nothing like Christmas to bring a special warm feeling to everyone, and there is no better occasion for personalised Christmas gifts to your loved ones. Such gifts are perfect for any just-love-gifts.com  member of your family, and for all your friends, so regardless if you are looking for gifts for mum, or for Christmas personalised baby gifts, this is the perfect time of the year to find them.

Remember that you cannot get the same gift for all your family members, because one gift cannot possibly suit all tastes. So get a special gift for each family member, trying to find the perfect one each time. It does not even have to be a special Christmas gift, because if you find something that you think one of your family members will like, you can get it personalised in a large number of locations. There is also the possibility of ordering a personalised gift online, if you see something that you like and that you think will make a perfect gift.

You can spend as much or as little as you want on the gifts, but it is better to get a gift that is actually useful instead of some porcelain figurine. Even a Christmas cup is better than a figurine, because it can be used regularly and chances are high that it will be used regularly, especially if you personalise it with a nice photo of yourself or of your family member.

If you want to make sure that the gifts you pick will be used by your mum or by your other family members, you can go ahead and get something more expensive that they are bound to use. Good choices include espresso machines for your male family members, gaming consoles or portable gaming consoles for the children, and nice warm clothing or some nice books for your mum and other female family members.

It is probably not a good idea to try to have everything personalised, as some items just are not meant to be personalised and it may end up voiding the warranty on some electronics. You can however attach a nice Christmas sticker to whatever you purchase, in a place that does not contain any information and is relatively out of sight. Your family members are bound to appreciate the gifts, but make sure not to put them in an awkward position by purchasing something extremely expensive when they are not spending very much on your present.

The children should be more than pleased if you spend a lot of money on their present, so there is no reason to worry about there, and there is no reason not to get them something that you know they will enjoy. A gaming console may not be a good idea for all children, but there are also other options such as bikes, toys, or even games.

The present for your mum should be special and should let her know how much she means to you. This is why a personalised gift is highly recommended, regardless of whether you get her something else as well or not. If you are truly lacking ideas then there are numerous sites that offer some excellent gift ideas, for Christmas, birthdays, and other special occasions.

A good site should have a dedicated section for family members, such as gifts for mum or gifts for dad, but they should also group the presents by occasion, such as  or personalised Easter gifts. Naturally, the age of the person you are looking for gifts for should also play an important part, and there should be different categories that cover that as well, such as personalised baby gifts.

These categories make navigating the site much easier and make finding a suitable present extremely easy. Finally, be sure to spend about the same amount of money on each present, because you do not want some of your friends or some of your family members to feel bad because you got them a cheaper present than you got for the rest of your friends and family. Make each of your friends and loved ones really feel loved, and offer them much more than a simple present. Show each of them that you have taken the time and effort required for picking just the right gift, and they are bound to appreciate the gift even more.

Leah Williams writes for Goodheart Gifts, a store online where you can find presents for all occasions including personalised Christmas gifts or  as well as gifts for mum. If you want to impress your family with original and quirky gifts, stay away from the department stores and shop at Goodheart Gifts online! Short of ideas? Take a look at their unique and fantastic range of products, which suit all pockets.

Casinos Help Out Gambling Addicts

Casinos Help Out Gambling Addicts

  

That last word is not usually mentioned in gambling circles, to be honest. It is one of those tags that society in general uses to label some  우리카지노 people and to be frank, sometimes it is overused, giving card games such as poker a bad name. Yet the reality remains. There are people who get hooked too much and cannot control themselves, leading to the erosion of his relationships and life in general.

Not all is lost, though. In fact, at the Viejas Indian Reservation, there is good news for all involved. A group of addiction counselors were trained on the dangers of compulsive gambling. This was part of a movement that casino operators are starting – to help those who are addicted to gambling. Interesting, no?

According to Mark Sauer of SignonSanDiego:

“We don’t deny there is a problem,” said Bobby Barrett, incoming tribal chairman of Viejas, chairman of the California Tribal Business Alliance and a certified gambling counselor.

“We are concerned with the health and safety of the people in our casinos, and with the risk to people within our own tribal communities.”

Self-help, 12-step programs have mushroomed. There were 10 Gamblers Anonymous meetings a week in San Diego County five years ago; today there are 35.

The number of certified counselors who offer the therapy they say is needed to straighten out a pathological gambler is shockingly low.

“I’m the only one I know of actually doing treatment in the county,” said therapist Suzanne Graupner Pike, who has treated troubled gamblers in Vista since 2003. “There’s no money in it.”

The reason for that, Pike said, is the “impulse-control disorder associated with problem gambling is not considered a disease, like alcohol or drug abuse, and hardly any insurance companies cover it.”

And the patients, Pike added wryly, have no money left.

Most gamblers with serious or severe problems, who make up about 4 percent of California adults, according to the state study, have related psychological problems, such as depression, which are covered by insurance, Pike said.

“Society needs to realize we have a medical crisis (with problem gambling), and there should be federal, state and local funds available for education and treatment, just as with other addictions,” she said.

Barrett said the state’s fledgling Office of Problem and Pathological Gambling has a $3 million annual budget. He said that is not nearly enough, noting, “All of that funding comes from California gaming tribes.”

Lefkowitz said there are two basic types of problem gamblers: those who thrive on action, who tend to be men; and those who gamble to escape, generally women.

Now I am not saying I am biased, but it never occurred to me that women would be a great part of this gambling addiction problem! I guess it is a good thing, what they are doing in California. It is just wishful thinking on my part, I guess, that this sort of thing should never have happened in the beginning. Of course, there are some things we cannot control. Still, activities like this one brings hope to those who need it.

Viagra

Viagra

  

Sildenafil Citrate, popularly known as Viagra, is a drug used in the treatment of impotence in men. Impotence, or erectile dysfunction, is a condition in which a man is not able to develop     Buy viagra UK   and maintain an erection. Viagra is primarily used to treat this inability.

Viagra is available in the form of pills which are needed to be taken before sexual intercourse.

It is available in three dosages – 25, 50, and 100 mg.

Viagra should not be taken without consulting your physician or having a thorough understanding of your body condition.

Viagra is sometimes known to cause some side effects which are usually very moderate. Such cases have been reported only due to over dosage.

A Guide to 35mm (Camera) Films

A Guide to 35mm (Camera) Films

  

35mm film cameras use a length of film enclosed in single-spool, light-tight, metal cassette to produce 36 x 24mm negatives, which is known by the terms “135”, or “35mm” film.

The idiom 135 was introduced by Kodak in about 1934, and is little more than a numeric name to distinguish    vr film     it from other film formats, e.g. 110, 120, 126, 127, 820, etc.

The alternative name of 35mm is descriptive of the width of the film, although in reality, the film is a tiny bit narrower than 35mm: it’s actually about 1 3/8 inches wide, or 34.9mm, because at its inception, 135 film was made by cutting another standard size film strip – 2 ¾ inch – in half.

The are four broad types of film; colour, black and white, print and slide, although black and white slide film has become pretty rare.

Print film is also known as “Negative”, since it produces a total inversion of the image captured (i.e. negatives), where light areas appear dark, dark areas become light, and colours (where present) are also switched into their respective complementary colours. The negatives are used to make prints, where the original image’s colours and tones are restored.

“Reversal” film produces a positive image on a transparent base. The processed film contains an accurate reproduction of colour, and light and shade, and requires no further treatment. Reversal film produces “transparencies”, which are commonly mounted in a plastic or card frame, and called “slides”.

All films have a “speed rating”, which is a measure of the film’s sensitivity to light. Films with a lower speed are relatively insensitive to light, require greater exposure to it, and are called “slow” films. Higher speed films are relatively more sensitive to light, require shorter exposures, and are termed “fast” films. There are three measures of film speed you need to be familiar with.

The DIN system (Deutsches Institut für Normung) was published in 1934, and is a logarithmic scale, usually comprised one or two digit numbers.

The ASA system (American Standards Association) was adopted by Kodak between about 1943, and 1954, and is an arithmetic scale, usually comprised of one to four digit numbers.

The ASA scale is easier to work with because the relationship between film speeds is simpler to grasp. For example, a 200 ASA film was twice as fast as a 100 ASA film, and a 400 ASA film was twice as fast as a 200 ASA film. In other words, using 400 ASA film in preference to 200 ASA allows the camera to utilize an aperture setting one f-stop smaller, or a shutter speed one-step higher. By contrast, when using the DIN scale it wasn’t as easy to fathom – on the hoof – that a 24 DIN film was twice as fast as a 21 DIN film, and a 27 DIN film was twice as fast as a 24 DIN film (you had to learn the speed increments).

In 1974, a new ISO (International Organization for Standardization) scale was adopted by the photographic industry, and this effectively combined the old ASA and DIN scales into one. In other words, 100 ASA or 21 DIN became 100/21 ISO, and 200 ASA or 24 DIN became 200/24 ISO. Cameras made before the mid 1980s may have ASA or DIN scales, or both. In reality most manufacturers stuck to the ASA/DIN system long after the 1974 changes.

There is one further film speed scale you will need to know about if you use a former Soviet Union made camera that pre-dates 1987: the GOST scale (but I’m not going to go into details here). GOST to ISO conversion tables are available on the Internet.

The relevance of film speed, of itself, it that is extends the capabilities of a camera to suit differing light conditions. For example, if you plan to shoot in a low light situation, or need to freeze motion, then a faster film is a good choice; but there is another aspect of film that needs to be taken into consideration, and that’s its “grain” or “granularity”.

Film is made from tiny fragments of silver, which under magnification look like gains of sand. They give film photographs their texture, which can be fine or grainy (or somewhere in between). Larger silver grains give film greater sensitivity to light, so faster films tend to have a more grainy texture, while slower films have fine grains of silver, and capture sharper images with much finer levels of texture attributable to the film. Today’s digital age equivalents of grainy and fine grain descriptions would be “noise” and “high-definition” images.

For this reason, the choice of film speed is often a compromise between ease of shooting (i.e. the ability to use faster shutter speeds/smaller apertures), and the quality of the photograph sought. Fortunately, most film manufacturers (and good retailers) describe the grain qualities of their products, and this allows the photographer to choose the film that best suit their needs based on both speed and grain.

Today, the big four film manufactures that once fuelled the rising in popularity of amateur photography are still in the business of making films: Agfa, Fujica, Ilford, and Kodak (plus a few others whose names have less kudos). I cannot recommend any particular brand of film: they are all good, and some are better than others, but the choice ultimately depends on what you are going to shoot and how you want your film photographs to look.

Advantages Of Choosing Casino Games From A Trusted Casino Portal

Advantages Of Choosing Casino Games From A Trusted Casino Portal

  

Many people tend to choose where to play casino games completely at random – perhaps by clicking a colorful and flashing banner at some website they have found while browsing, or by following a promotional link in an e-mail. Now, there is nothing wrong in signing up with a trusted online casino via their advertisements – not at all – however, the question is whether this behaviour is going to land the player   satta    with the best deal available for that particular casino? Also, are there perhaps any other considerations the player should keep in mind prior to diving in to just any casino game or website?

In this article we will discuss the advantages of choosing where to play casino games by visiting a trusted casino portal prior to playing. First, let us define what such a portal is. The term portal, when used in the context of the online web, is primarily a gateway providing useful links to many other websites. When used properly, a portal can provide essential information to the visitor about the topic of interest – and can also guide him or her to some recommended resources. This may save the visitor a lot of time and effort in evaluating the usefulness of the websites that they may come across. In this sense, the internet portal is very similar to the city tourist office where visitors come to find sightseeing attractions.

In the casino entertainment industry, portals are exclusively necessary and vital to the users as, quite frankly, there are simply so many casino games and gambling websites to choose from. By visiting an online casino portal, the player can quickly gather essential information on the games they would like to play and evaluate the reputation of a particular website in beforehand.

The true purpose of a good casino portal is to provide visitors and players with useful information – whether it has to do with the rules of the casino games (aka how to play), reviews of individual online casinos or poker rooms – or any other information on the subject that may appeal to the player.

One of the benefits of subscribing to the newsletter of a trusted casino portal, or by visiting it on a regular basis, is that players can stay updated with the latest offers provided by various online casinos. More often than not, casino portals have the ability to work out special deposit bonus deals with some of the casino operators which are exclusive to the portal subscribers. This way, the player may receive more in bonuses when signing up for a new online casino, rather than signing up via a random banner click elsewhere.

Of course, there are certainly many bad examples of casino portals available on the internet. These websites are often simple web templates stuffed with various casino banners and affiliate links, providing no valuable information to visitors whatsoever. Such websites should be avoided at all cost – a very common strategy for these websites is to plant tons of annoying pop-ups or redirections distracting the visitor. In worst case, they may even contain viruses or malware.

Online Video Slots for Convenience and Fun

Online Video Slots for Convenience and Fun

  

The slot machine is probably the most popular gambling game at any casino till date. It is very easy, involves no strategy whatsoever and is worth the money. Rather than the reel slots, people prefer the video slots because of the bonus screens that the players get  PG SLOT   to play on for free. The video slots are more fun and can be changed to players’ preferences. The slots come in 3, 5 and 7 reel columns.

Online video slots are even more convenient. The game is a tension free ‘let me try my luck’ kind of game. If you get lucky, you could hit the jackpot, all being in the comfort of your home.

How does a slot machine look like?

The slot looks like an ATM machine out of the wall. More like a video gaming booth. But in online game, all you will see is a screen with number of buttons.

There are numerous buttons and a pulling handle for rotating the slots. Each button has a function. Usually the buttons are for wagering your bet, one for wagering the maximum bet, one for collection of cash after winning and one for viewing help menu in case you need help with using the machine or rules.

How to play video slots?

All you have to do is yank the handle after placing your bet. The slots spin with 20 to 100 different symbols. As the rotating stops the symbols will get arranged at random. The more the number of same symbols, the more the payouts.

Tips for winning

Online video slots offer more payouts. If the jackpot is higher, the chance of winning it is going to be tough. Hence choose to play a middle order with reasonable jackpot.

The more the wagering money, the more are the chances of winning. Hence, slots with wagering limits of $1, $2 and more have better chances of getting winning.

Progressive slots give better payouts, but you need to be extremely lucky to win it.

Video slot is the best game for entertainment value for it offers just more than yanking a handling and placing bets. You can play free bonuses and try your luck in that as well.

Mobile Casinos With PlayTech Software

Mobile Casinos With PlayTech Software

  

The same as with the Microgaming, PlayTech is a large company, online casinos software supplier. Perhaps, they rank second after Microgaming in terms of reputation and number of online casinos. The Company was valued 1 billion USD, which speaks about its high reputation and trust level. As far as I could find in the net, there are not   bk8    so many mobile casinos using PlayTech software so far, but this company has always been distinguished by its active development, that is why I am sure that their quantity will increase sooner than later. Three mobile casinos can be found with the PlayTech software so far: Golden Palace, Tropez Mobile Casino, XXL Club Casino.

XXL Club Casino is the best casino from the point of view of support. One more pleasant detail is that visiting the online casino site I found a pop-up banner, promising 10USD no deposit mobile casino bonus. In a minute I got my bonus but lost it in slots as quickly as received (betting 2USD per spin, so, this is not a wonder). After that, as I usually do in PlayTech casinos, I rejected the bonuses (mobile casino support was happy to handle my request), made a deposit and started playing my favourite mobile casino games. I have to say that the registration and the casino deposit were made via online casino website, though it is possible also via the phone.

Mobile casino wagering results:

I started playing with black jack. The minimum stake, as it is in Microgaming software mobile casinos is rather high – two USD, so I had no choice but to playing this stake. The results were very interesting: 57 gains (!), 38 losses and 5 pushes. A rather obvious distortion in my favor, which gave me the gain of 33 USD. I must note that there were three losses at a time and 8 gains (with the only push deal in the middle). The number of blackjacks was within the norm, it was four. With doubling the results were not very impressive – I won only two out of seven deals (the probability of the gain at doubling is over 50%). Generally, it is an ambiguous result: on one side I have won a lot, on the other side – I have won too much as for testing the casino. There is also something wrong with the doublings (perhaps, it is for compensation?).

Videopoker was the second mobile casino game for the testing. The game was the standard “Jack or better” with a normal payment table 6/9. Playtech mobile casinos have wider the range of stakes than it is in Microgaming mobile casinos – coins from 0.05 USD to 5 USD. I played five coins of USD 0.25. The results were again odd: 14 pairs, 15 – two pairs, 12 treys, not a single street or flash and three fulls. In some fantastic way my pairs turned into treys and full-houses, there is no other way to explain such statistics. With such a cut of cards the gain of 10 USD is not a wonder. The doubles sprawled in equal parts – the half was a gain, the half was a loss. The PlayTech has also one more opportunity to double just a half of the gain in the videopoker.

Just for fun I loaded a European roulette of this mobile casino. I played just a few spins – just to have a look. First, you are running with the joystick across the stakes field to place the bets. Then you pressing the spin button you would see the wheel and then when the ball landed you would see the results. It is clear that the bets are made longer than in the offline mode, especially if they are several. The advantage of this mobile casino roulette game is that there is an option to make blank spins, but disadvantage is that the minimum bet amount of 2 USD even betting on the numbers. I have not being playing too many deals of this funny mobile casino game keeping in mined Albert Einstein conclusion: “You cannot beat a roulette table unless you steal money from it”.
