There are thousands of casinos around at the moment, both online and land based, and thousands of websites offering tips on how to beat them. But can it be done? Can you find a source of betting systems that don’t require you to pay $100’s up-front with no proof that they work? Can any betting system work at a casino?
I believe, that with the right system, and most importantly, the right discipline, it can be done. Casinos typically work to a ‘House Edge’ of 1 to 5%. For every $100 gambled, the player will lose $1 to $5. It doesn’t sound like much, but in a multi-billion dollar industry it’s enough to make online casinos some of the most profitable sites in the world, and to build Las Vegas up from nothing in just a few years.
Many people will tell you that it is impossible to overturn this edge, and from a purely mathematical point of view they are correct. The Laws of Probability mean that you cannot turn a negative into a positive bandarqq. If you are playing Roulette, and Black has come up 10 times in a row, the odds of it coming up next time are still 50/50. (Ignoring the ‘0’ and ’00’) According to the Laws of Probability, there is no reason why Black cannot come up 100 times in a row. This argument, while scientifically sound, ignores the Law of Possibility, which means that in the real world, the chances of Black coming up 100 times in a row is so slight that it can be ignored.
This doesn’t mean that you can gamble recklessly and expect to win. You need a good system, and the discipline to quit while you are ahead, which is where most gambling systems come apart. Set yourself the target of winning, say, $50, and quit as soon as you have achieved it.
The most common system you will see advertised comes under many different names, but is generally known as The Martingale System. You will be told to bet on Red or Black at the Roulette table, and double your stake after a loss. Starting at $1, you would, after consecutive losses bet like this – $2, $4, $8, $16, $32, $64, $128, $256, all for a $1 return on a winner. The next bet would exceed the table limit at many casinos, and 9 consecutive losses is too common to make this system work, so avoid it at all costs.
Baccarat is known to be one of the easiest of the available casino games. It is a game of cards in which you place your bets before each hand is dealt from eight different deck of cards. Nowadays, you do not need to go to a casino to play this game; in fact, you can find on the Internet online baccarat which uses single decks.
In the conventional game of Baccarat, there are three bets that will take place, which is the banker hand, the player hand, and a tie. The banker holds the shoe, which is the dealing box, and the cards will be dealt to the players. The players will then turn the cards over and the croupier will call the show of cards. Then, you will need to bet on which hand you think will win before the cards are dealt. Should a banker’s hand win, he will keep his title. However, should a player’s hand win, the banker have to pass the shoe to that player. You can choose to pass the shoe if you want to.
In this game, cards with the value of two to nine do not change its value. However, the tens, Jack, Queen and King hold a zero value, while Ace holds the value of 1. When the cards in hand are totaled up, the first digit of the total is excluded if there are two digits in the total, which remains a single digit. The hand that has the closest total to 9 would be the winner of the game. In each game, each player and the banker will receive three hands of two cards. You either bet on the banker’s hand, the player’s hand, or a tie. Players tend to bet on the banker’s hand as the losses to the banker are less than to a player. Yet, if the banker wins, you will be charged tax. Betting on a tie is usually avoided as the ratio of winning is only 8:1.
The good thing about playing online baccarat is that you can play freely and cheaply while trying different game options and strategies. It serves as a training ground before the real thing. Most of these online casinos will have webcams set before the dealer so you can watch the game live, as though experiencing the real thing.
