Top 5 gambling apps for the iPad
30 April 2012
Other apps from companies such as Mecca bingo are now available and several poker apps are starting to appear such as the bet24 poker app, which is awesome. There were apps from other leading brands that could also have made it into our top five, but these ones that feature here marginally beat the other contenders for a top 5 spot in our list of best iPad gambling apps. These applications appear in no particular order of importance because there was no clear winner.

Branded slot games, are they really worth playing?
28 April 2012
All branded slots are available in the real cash mode and the majority of them can also be played in the free play demo mode, which will allow you to practice the game before risking your own cash.
Most of these games can be accessed via secure downloadable casino software, which will give you direct access to the games from your desktop, or the other option is to launch them instantly from the main casino website using either a Flash or Java player, meaning that you won’t have to download any casino software from the internet. Most branded slots today give you both options.

How to play Deal or No Deal online
21 April 2012
Deal or No Deal is one of the UK’s most popular game shows. Hosted by the inimitable Noel Edmunds and broadcast by Channel 4, it features a single contestant pitted against the shadowy figure of the ‘banker’ as he or she tries to guess the amounts contained in a series of twenty-two identical sealed red boxes.
Each box contains a cash sum, ranging between 1p and £250,000, and through the course of the game the contestant eliminates the boxes one by one. After each elimination the banker offers the contestant a lump sum for the one box that remains in their possession throughout the game. They can either choose to ‘deal’ and accept the money, or opt for ‘no deal’ and continue playing.
How to help your friend who is a problem gambler
20 April 2012
If you think that they are just going to bite your head off then you may have to take a different approach. There are major organisations that offer their support and advice and one main organisation that you can turn to for help is gambleaware.co.uk. They promote and educate people about sensible gambling and you will often see their logo at the bottom of an online gambling portal such as an online casino, poker site, sportsbetting site, bingo site or other similar website.
You can simply hover over their logo and click on it to be redirected to their main website. This organisation is actually administered by a charity known as The GREat Foundation. Their mission is to support initiatives to help reduce the risk of gambling from becoming a major problem in people’s lives.

Which branded slot games do we want to see this year
18 April 2012
It doesn’t look as though things are going to be any different in 2012. Many players often anticipate the arrival of a new branded slot (otherwise known as a bonus video slot) and with the amount of ground breaking new and old software developers currently churning out games at the rate they are now, hopefully some of these games that we would like to see will start becoming a reality and appearing in our favourite online casino sooner rather than later.
With the success of major branded games that have already been developed by some of the industry’s leading software providers, players have been able to experience games such as X-Men, Iron Man 1 and 2, Daredevil, Rocky, The Mummy, The Pink Panther, The Punisher, Lord of The Rings, the Fantastic Four and many more. We just hope to see as many great titles coming out in 2012.

Top 3 movies featuring texas hold'em poker
16 April 2012
The top 3 movies that caught our attention and also seem to appear on most people’s list of must-see Texas Hold’em poker movies includes titles such as ‘High Roller: The Stu Ungar Story’ (otherwise known as ‘Stuey’), as well as ‘Lucky You’ featuring Eric Bana, Robert Duval and Drew Barrymore and possibly the best poker movie ever, ‘Rounder’s’ featuring Matt Damon and John Malcovic. This one also stars John Tuturro.
If there are three poker movies that everyone should see at one point in their life, these are the ones. Each one has a completely different plot but all revolve around the world’s most loved card game, Texas Hold’em. These movies are often underrated and certainly deserve more recognition.

The oldest online casino
14 April 2012
Many people will argue that Intercasino were the first, others will tell you that Intertops Casino was the first to launch but then many will point out that Gaming Club Casino is the oldest. This section explores the truth behind who is actually the oldest. One thing is for sure though, that both Intercasino and Gaming club are without a doubt two of the oldest online casinos.
If you visit the Gaming Club Casino, you will read the words “1st Online Casino, Est. 1994.” This technically makes them the oldest online casino in the world. However, this fact is slightly misconstrued.

• Choose your Preferred Withdrawal Method
When you first sign up to an online casino, you will probably be prompted to make your first deposit using a variety of different methods. This is where you should take the time to research whether your preferred method allows for both deposits and withdrawals, not just deposits.
Not all methods allow for both, so if you want to keep things simple, try and opt for a method that will allow you to do both. Also, depending on your location (country of residence), some banking options may or may not be available. Many players may prefer to use a credit or debit card, whereas other players may prefer to use an e-wallet. Always check in the cashier section to see if your preferred method will allow you to withdraw, prior to signing up with them.
