Online casinos, also called virtual casinos or virtual internet casinos, are virtual versions of real casinos. They have all the amenities of a traditional casino but at a fraction of the cost. These online casinos allow gamblers to play electronic casino games over the Internet. It’s a highly prolific form of internet gambling.
There are basically two types of gambling that take place in a casino. The first is betting on a machine; for instance, in a “dollars’ casino” where you bet actual money on a slot machine. The other type of gambling is gaming (also known as Roulette and Keno). In either case, you are placing your money (wagers) on a machine or a wheel that will spin to give the outcome, whether winning or losing, that you are seeking.
The house edge on roulette and blackjack is the total amount of money that would be lost by the casino if the players won. On a ” progressive ” casino game, the house edge is less than one percent. On high rollers slots machines, the house edge can be as much as ninety percent. So, these high rollers tend to enjoy their slots a lot more than those who play strictly table games.
Most of today’s high rollers are native or at least frequent visitors of online casinos. A few of them even hold multi-million dollar bets on slot machines at these sites. Some of these high rollers use online slots to “tricks” or “bluff” the online casino into letting them win real money. For instance, some of these gamblers will set up a slot account using the same name and number as a credit card.
There are also many people, mostly native or perhaps former gamblers, who are employed by riverboat casinos to ensure that slot players are kept away from the gaming tables. Some of these employees have been known to go out of their way to make sure that slot players do not get the opportunity to win real money. Many of these gamblers who work in the casinos as employees are not only there to prevent slot players from winning real money, but also to physically prevent any winnings from being doubled or tripled while they are inside the casino. In most cases these “vets” have beaten their bosses at the slot machines, and since they do not live on the boat they are usually quite willing to discuss their winnings with other guests.
Slots are an excellent choice for casino games, though they tend to be a target for many thieves. The majority of slot machine thieves are ex-cons who were either given away by one of the owners due to financial difficulties, or they were given free slots by another owner because he didn’t think that he could afford the real casino gambling chips. When you play slot machines in New York, make sure to be aware of the possibility that your casino security staff is placing “vetted” slot machines in your establishment, and also be aware that many slot machine owners will refuse to give their slot machines to the casino until they are replaced by the casino security. This can be a very frustrating experience, especially if you have won large amounts of money from your “reward” machines. When slot machine owners refuse to honor their guarantee, it is best to keep on the lookout for a “vetted” slot machine and report the owner when you find one.
