Las Vegas Strip casinos tighten slot payouts

 

 

LOS ANGELES, July 11 (Reuters) – Slot machine enthusiasts take heart: that feeling that it’s getting harder and harder to make a buck in Las Vegas is no illusion.

 

Over the last few years, casinos on the Las Vegas Strip have quietly lowered the overall payout rates for their slot machines, effectively paying themselves millions of dollars more in profits at the expense of the slot player.

 

According to data released on Wednesday, Strip casinos held onto 6.67 percent of all money they took in for slots in May, meaning they kept $6.67 for every $100 wagered. That figure was up sharply from May 2001, when they kept $6.30 for every $100 wagered, according to the Nevada Gaming Control Board.

 

Unlike table games such as craps and black jack, where the payout rate varies from month to month based on the luck of the dice or cards, UFA slot payout rates are programmed into the machines by casinos with little left to chance.

 

Thus, a large casino can effectively give itself millions of dollars in added profits by programming its payout rate at a fraction of a percentage point lower.

 

In more concrete terms, Las Vegas Strip casinos would have kept $2.48 billion in profits of the $39.3 billion wagered on their slot machines last year using the 6.3 percent rate. But under the newer 6.67 percent rate, their winnings would have grown by $140 million to $2.62 billion.

 

UBS Warburg analysts Robin Farley said Las Vegas Strip casinos are tightening up their slots to offset cheap room prices and food prices, which are often treated as loss leaders to get people gambling.

 

“The casinos are using their room rates to get people in the doors, to get visitors walking through …

Ligaz11 Review of Comp City

 

 

 

One of the first things that first time visitors to Las Vegas notice is that some folks at the casino get much better treatment than they do. Most people assume that one would have to be a high roller to get free food, free rooms, and limo rides to the airport. Max Rubin tells us in Comp City that it isn’t necessary to let the casino have a shot at a big bankroll to do this, but it is necessary to make the casino think they will.

 

If The Frugal Gambler tells the reader how to take advantage of high expectation situations (expecting to win or lose just a little) in order to get free trips to the buffet, free weekday rooms, or small amounts of cash back, Comp City deals with the other extreme, giving the illusion of a large amount of blackjack action in order to secure RFB (room, food, beverage), airfare reimbursement, and all the other top level perks that come to the casinos’ favorite customers.

 

My guess is even someone skilled in playing this game will learn a considerable amount from this book. There are a lot of tips and techniques on how to maximize the casino’s perception of how much is being wagered while minimizing risk. Some of the suggestions probably won’t work quite as well today as they did when the book was written, still, there are some powerful methods for those who care to play at this level.

 

One interesting observation I made were the places where techniques were similar and dissimilar to those used by blackjack card counters. The card counter wants to not be noticed by the pit, the comp counter wants to be noticed only at key times. The card counter wants a fast …

Sunny Group Down While Changing Software

Expect the popular Sunny Group casinos, including Casino Fortune and Miami Beach Casino, to be out of action this weekend while the company resolves its software problems. Sunny Group and Microgaming parted company this week, on less-than-amicable terms. Casino Fortune, which is part of the Sunny Group of casinos, sent out a press release saying the decision arose because of concerns regarding Microgaming’s payout percentages. Microgaming sent out its own release saying that Sunny Group had not paid its outstanding licensing fees and that any claims Sunny had terminated the agreement were false.

Funds scarce – Casino Case

 

 

While caseloads have increased, the program has kept staffing at four part-time and two full-time. The program does receive some additional funding through legislative-member items and insurance reimbursements, but not much. Many clients can’t afford to pay the 50 percent copay or their insurance treats it as a mental health issue, Wert says. That’s a national problem: Most insurance policies provide only partial coverage, and that’s often because the gambling could be a byproduct of another problem says Christine Reilly, executive director of the Institute for Research on Pathological Gambling and Related Disorders at the Harvard Medical School division on addictions.

 

“We don’t know a lot about the disorder. There’s probably no one treatment so clinicians are out to sea,” she says. “These people bring in such different problems. They may have substance abuse problems, depression and you can’t treat the gambling without treating the others. Is the gambling a manifestation of those problems or is it the reverse?”

 

Schillinger is hoping to get some additional funding from a new $2 million revenue stream Gov. Pataki will make available for gambling programs through an RFP process. Jewish Family Services is collaborating with the Alcoholism Council of Niagara County Inc. and the Erie County Council for the Prevention of Alcohol and Substance Abuse on a regional response, with the two county agencies providing prevention programming and JFS providing the treatment side.

 

Additionally, a shift in funding will now see state funds come through the Office of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Services (OASAS).

 

“They have the expertise in prevention and the networks into the schools. It doesn’t make sense for us to reinvent the wheel,” Schillinger says.

 

That participation with the schools is important: The fastest rising group of problem gamblers is kids right now, …

German tennis Domino Qiu Qiu Uang Asli crowds

 

Dipped in and out of some of the World Team Cup games today from Dusseldorf. The rain breaks were annoying but not half as much as the German crowd.

I think today was my breaking point after trading Hamburg last week as well. It’s just that perpetual slow hand clapping the moment there’s a micro-second break in the action. Starting to do my head in. What the hell is point?

 

But that’s minor compared to the brain damage those bloody pre-pubescent squeals of “Let’s go – insert suitably Germanic sounding name – Let’s go” chants all the time. Starting to bug me as much as those fucking Crazy Frog ads were last summer. And that’s saying something!

Anyway, the chill remedy is a night in a relaxing country pub with Emma and some mates so I’m off out. Bah Humbug!! 🙂

Don’t laugh. I can explain! And hey, at least the number is in green!!

Truth is I should have made a small Domino Qiu Qiu Uang Asli killing today. With the server troubles I had (see post below) it meant I couldn’t do anything approaching normal work so had a good few hours to trade. Perfect! Or it would have been if it hadn’t been for injuries.

After the disaster of the last time I got involved in a Roddick game I was determined to show a good profit on today’s game. And indeed I was. Roddick had his serve broken early and I had a back on Massu. Big green and smiles all round. And then Roddick goes and gets injured. No worries I’m telling myself. Just finish the set. But no, he was unable to and all that green just disappeared. Betfair rules. Which state quite clearly in Big red letters:

Kashima’s Champions League chances Judi Onlen crippled?

 

 

Kashima Antlers’ AFC Champions League chances have take a severe blow with the news that captain Mitsuo Ogasawara will miss the rest of the season after suffering knee ligament damage in Kashima’s 1-1 draw away at Kashiwa Reysol overnight.

 

The influential midfielder was stretchered from the field after colliding with Kashiwa’s Alex in the sixteenth minute, and there was more drama just Judi Onlen three minutes later when Kashima fans appeared to strike Alex with a flag-pole as the Brazilian midfielder lined up to take a corner.

 

The match was played in front of a tense atmosphere at Kashiwa Hitachi Stadium, as scuffles broke out between Reysol and Antlers fans with security struggling to contain the unruly behaviour.

 

On the pitch Popo handed the hosts the lead midway through the first half, and it took a last-gasp penalty from Marquinhos for Kashima to steal a share of the spoils and keep themselves in the J. League title race.

 

Kashima will face A-League outfit Adelaide United in the second leg of their AFC Champions League quarter-final at Hindmarsh Stadium on September 24, with the tie delicately poised following a 1-1 draw in the first leg in Japan.

COMMENT: Hiddink Bandarqq gamble almost delivered lethal dose by Spider

 

 

He’s publicly chased long-term rival Mark Schwarzer for Australia’s number one jersey for more seasons than understudy Zeljko Kalac cares to remember.

 

But after an error-strewn World Cup debut, his chances of an encore against Italy in Kaiserslautern have been left in tatters.

 

“I’ve taken a world-class goal, I’ve taken a shit goal,” Kalac said frankly in the aftermath of the Socceroos’ thrilling 2-2 draw with Croatia, somewhat underplaying the manner in which he allowed a daisy-cutter from Niko Kovac to bobble in.

 

“He [Guus Hiddink] left Schwarzy out because of a few mistakes in previous matches and now I’ve made a big one. It could be [third choice goalkeeper] Ante Covic’s turn next.”

 

This last comment provides a priceless insight into the mind of Kalac, deputy to Brazil’s Dida at AC Milan.

 

Even from his personal depth of despair, he somehow still conjures a way to besmirch his closest challenger.

 

Although likely born out of frustration at his own incompetence after being handed a shot at World Cup glory, this is not the first time Kalac has voiced his misguided opinion.

 

Just before the double-header last November – with Schwarzer struggling with fitness and form at Middlesbrough – Kalac gave himself a public vote of confidence for a starting berth against Uruguay.

 

What followed was Schwarzer heroics in both normal time and most notably in the penalty shootout victory in the return leg in Sydney.

 

With the goalkeeping foes so close in ability, Bandarqq perhaps Kalac believes he can talk rather than play his way into Hiddink’s first team plans.

 

He needn’t bother.

 

It is clear the Dutchman holds each player in high esteem, so much so Hiddink admitted considering replacing Schwarzer with the 202cm Kalac …

NUMEROLOGY. TOGEL SINGAPORE LOTTERY NUMBERS PREDICTION METHODS

 

 

The Ancient Craft Of Numerology Number combinations and the methods for choosing them are as varied as the people who play the Lottery. Some people take the scientific approach to picking numbers-they use traditional strategies based on math or logic such as tracking and wheeling.

Since many believe that the stars and planets correlate with our lives by their positions or aspects, many people use astrology as a guide to choosing numbers. Other people use the ancient art of numerology in their search for winning number combinations.

For more lottery reviews go to Lottery Man.

 

The ancient art of numerology is the study of the meanings of numbers. Its exact origin is unknown, but it predates the time of Christ and was practiced by the Chaldeans of southern Babylonia (southern Iraq). Some believe that the mysterious design of the Pyramids of Giza, was, in part, based upon numerological calculations.

Numerologist Jo Mason believes that certain numbers crop up frequently in a person’s life. These may be phone numbers, anniversaries or addresses. But the most important one of all is your birthday number. The “Lucky Numbers” author says there are two types of birthday numbers-the primary and secondary numbers, which are computed in different ways.

 

Primary Numbers

Although some numerologists disagree as to which of the birth numbers are of greatest significance, the birth date or the primary number, is generally considered to be the most influential number. Your primary number will apply to you for your entire life and in every aspect of it from the lottery to significant events in your life such as anniversaries, births, weddings and important career events.

 

Your primary number is simply your birth date. If a person’s birthday was October 2, 1950 the primary number is 2. If a …

Why the Local Bookie Could Be a Big Togel Singapore Winner In 2007 Super Bowl

 

 

On Sunday, a 28-year-old Hollywood assistant named Seth plans to enjoy the Super Bowl in the same way millions of other football fans will: He’ll bet on it.

 

How, exactly, will he wager that $100 burning a hole in his pocket? One thing he knows for sure is that he won’t do it legally. Trekking to Vegas for the weekend is out of the question. And he won’t do it using one of the publicly traded online services based abroad that have been taking sports bets from Americans over the past few years. They have mostly stopped taking action from U.S. residents in the wake of an aggressive government crackdown on Internet wagering.

 

But that doesn’t mean he and other gamblers will be shut out. In fact, the government’s war against illegal online wagering may be driving gamblers back to where they started: their local bookie. And in an ironic twist, there’s a good chance the bookmaker is taking bets over the Internet, too.

 

“Even my bookie is online these days,” says Seth. He would be logging in to place his bet but misplaced the username and password the bookmaker gave him. “I guess I’ll just have to call him and get him to resend me the instructions, sort of a tech support for the sports bettor,” he says.

 

The government’s crackdown has, in recent months, targeted executives at offshore Internet-gambling outfits and the foreign credit-card-processing companies that facilitate the transactions with U.S. bettors. But while it may have dented the $12-billion-a-year online-gambling industry, it didn’t break it.

 

No one thinks that American gamblers’ appetites have waned either. Last year, about $94.5 million was legally wagered on the Super Bowl in Nevada casinos, the only place in the land where it’s lawful to …
