Does Have the Answer to Situs Judi Bola players ?

“Poker players might argue that there isn’t much skill involved in bingo, but that’s the way the law sees it.”

Online gambling exists in a bit of a gray area at the moment, and is even illegal in some jurisdictions. But one company is hoping that its new online gaming product will offer players a safe (and popular) alternative. has just announced the test launch of a new pay-to-play online bingo game that gives players a chance to win real money. But pay to play sounds a lot like gambling. So how does the company stay on the right side of the law? By calling bingo a game of skill.

The site was launched about a year and a half ago and quickly become one of the most heavily trafficked sites on the web, with more than 750,000 members. Play has been free (there will likely still be free games alongside pay-to-play games), and there are a wide variety of themed bingo games to choose from.

Up to this point, has rewarded winning players with Bingo Bucks. These Bingo Buck have no cash value, but could be redeemed for retail goods through a partnership with

But the introduction of pay-to-play games and real-money prizes has changed that, and in the process made the site appear – at least in passing – like a gambling site. That’s where the all-important ‘skill’ aspect comes into the equation.

Casino games and Togel gambling itself are by definition games of chance – the outcome depends on luck. Several states and countries are trying to ban, or have banned, online casinos that offer games of chance.

But according to, the games it offers depend on skill rather than chance. That means bingo isn’t gambling, and therefore can’t be illegal (in most jurisdictions, anyway. But that’s another article.) The issue of pay-to-play and any similarities to online gambling become moot points now that these aren’t games of chance.

Poker players might argue that there isn’t much skill involved in bingo, but that’s the way the law sees it. And that’s what is banking on.

The big difference between online casino games and games of skill, from the player perspective at least, will be the reward. Casinos offer better payouts than games of skill because games of skill have maximums on winnings; skilled players would clean out operators if there weren’t limits.’s beta tests are being conducted by a select group of players and will last for a few weeks. Other companies have also launched similar products, but only time will tell if games of skill are the way of the future.

Now, if someone could just convince the politicians that Blackjack was a game of skill… Launches Big-payout Slots

Soccer – Ranieri reveals Saints talks


Leicester City manager Claudio Ranieri has said that he held talks with Southampton last year about becoming Saints boss before he took charge of Greece. The former Chelsea and Valencia manager endured a dreadful time with the Greeks, who have failed to qualify for the Euro 2016 finals. Ranieri lost his job after only four months in charge of the Euro 2004 winners before being named as the new Foxes boss this summer. “I was interested, but after that there was also the Greece job – and I made a mistake,” admitted the Italian. Southampton face Leicester this weekend and Saints are 1/2 with bet365 to be the first team to score in the St Mary’s clash and 6/4 to keep a clean sheet in the game.


Soccer – Mourinho confident Chelsea’s fortunes will change


Chelsea head coach Jose Mourinho has predicted that his side will soon start climbing the table. Last season’s Premier League champions have made a dismal start to the defence of their title, losing four of their first eight matches, and are 16th in the table ahead of this weekend’s game against Aston Villa. However, Mourinho is certain that his side will soon start to put some wins on the board. He said: “Every game is a must-win game and, when we don’t win, it’s always a frustration, but we cannot run away from the reality of the situation. “We need to win matches, for us, for the Chelsea supporters. We are not going to be relegated – in a couple of months we will be in a position we want to be in.” Chelsea are 5/6 with bet365 to keep a clean sheet against Villa and 21/10 to be leading 1-0 at half-time at Stamford Bridge.

Bettors remain seated, please

Coming soon to the living rooms of Mr. And Mrs. Heartland USA, is TVG Network’s Interactive Horse Racing channel, which will allow any palooka smart enough to push the power button enough clout to wager on the sport of kings without stepping down from the La-Z-Boy.

Founded in 1999, with fewer than a million homes watching the horse races, TVG now is seen in 14 million homes and change. Last year it drew in $303 million in bets, which was nearly double the $148 million in nabbed in 2002.

The money was made via either the telephone or the Internet. It was not enough for the growing company, which will introduce its new vice via the Dish Network into 10 million households next month.

While the Federal Communications Commission has blessed this action, the legality of sports wagering in the United States is as murky as the bottom of Lake Arrowhead.

With the partial passage of the Internet Gambling Enforcement Act in the House of Representatives in October, Congress hoped to pull a knife across the carotid artery of illegal wagering in the homes of Mr. and Mrs. Heartland U.S.A.

The legislators did not count on horse players being allowed to use the TV remote as a betting tool, which raises the question: What does this mean for other types of bettors mainly those who wager onother sports?

The answer so far is silence from those in the white halls of Washington D.C., but not from the profiteers in San Jose, Costa Rica.

“If TVG pulls this off, we can’t imagine what it will mean for our business,’ said a man named Steve, who works for NASA Sportsbook, one of the main online betting networks run out of Costa Rica’s capital.

“Americans watch a lot of television, and as far as we see it, this means they will be using it to wager on the NFL and other venues. It’s already happening in Australia and Hong Kong, so why not? The concern we have is that it could seriously cripple our capital.’

Asked how much it would hurt, Steve was reluctant to reveal any situs poker online terpercaya figures.

He didn’t have to. A study conducted by the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department in 2002 revealed how lucrative online sports betting have become for companies such as NASA. In Los Angeles County alone, Internet betting amounts to a $2 billion a yearindustry.

One only can imagine how much that would increase after the electronic wasteland becomes littered with this new device.

If there is an irony in this muddled affair, it is that residents in Nevada will be shutout from the TV betting game. It is illegal for them to gamble online or by television in the privacy of their own homes.

Estonia win edges England closer to EURO 2008 for Bandar Togel Hongkong



After months of real uncertainty and voices of doom, England’s qualification for Euro 2008 looks ever more likely now after the three lions cruised past Estonia 3-0 at Wembley on Saturday.


Steve McClaren can sleep that bit easier than when England succumbed lamely 2-0 in Croatia a year ago, only days after tying the mighty Macedonia 0-0 at home.


First-half strikes from Shaun-Wright Phillips, Wayne Rooney and an own goal by Estonia’s Taavi Rahn sent England into a 3-0 lead with 33 minutes on the clock and the contest was as good as over.


The pre-match atmosphere was far from tense. Confidence in English fans was high following the Wembley win over Russia in September and the media were far more interested in the England rugby team’s World Cup semifinal against France in Paris that night than the football team’s clash with Estonia.


McClaren’s men profited from being out of the spotlight for once and looked relaxed as they eased into a comfortable lead in the first half before turning on the auto-pilot.


Steven Gerrard and Joe Cole spurned chances to extend England’s lead in the second half while the visitors failed to create any genuine opportunities to reduce the deficit.


The real talking points emerging from the game concerned McClaren’s team selection and England’s chances of pulling off a win on the artificial surface in Russia on Wednesday.


Portsmouth’s Sol Campbell donned an England shirt for the first time in 16 months and performed creditably, but former Arsenal teammate Ashley Cole was worryingly stretchered off just after the second half began and will be on the sidelines in Moscow.



Everton’s Phil Neville should replace him then as he did on Saturday, although Chelsea colleague John Terry, Bandar Togel Hongkong is still hopeful of returning from injury in time for the big game in Russia.


The Wembley crowd of 86,655 also responded negatively to the insertion of Frank Lampard in the 70th minute in place of Michael Owen.


There was no call for such boorishness. McClaren had already done the right and popular thing in picking in the in-form Aston Villa man Gareth Barry from the start ahead of Lampard, whose displays for his country have, in the unanimous opinion, left a lot to be desired.


In addition, Owen was due for replacement on the day after struggling to spring the offside trap set by the Estonian backline, and Lampard was the logical replacement as an advanced and attacking midfielder.


England are now five points clear of third-place Russia in Group E with two games remaining, well aware a win in Moscow on Wednesday would guarantee them second place behind the Croats and a place in the finals.


Russia were well beaten 0-3 by England at Wembley in September and will be itching for revenge. The Field Turf surface at the Luzhniki Stadium will give Guus Hiddink’s team a slight advantage, but not as much as the expected sell out crowd of over 84,000 could.


Croatia kept up the pressure on the two nations just below them with a 1-0 win over Israel in Zagreb. The Croats, three points ahead of England, travel to Macedonia on Wednesday before concluding their campaign at Wembley on the 21st of Novermber.


Russia, with a game in hand, have still to travel to Israel and Andorra, and are well aware that a win over England on Wednesday will put them in the driving seat for second place and a ticket to the finals.

Korea: Goalless In Andar Qiu Qiu Seoul



It’s all gone wrong for FC Seoul. As world leagues go, the K may be a low-scoring one but no goals in the last 582 minutes is not what the club had in mind when seemingly defensive-minded coach Lee Jang-soo was jettisoned at the end of Andar Qiu Qiu last season for the supposedly attacking Senol Gunes.


In the middle of March however, Gunes was starting to think that the whole East Asia thing was a walk in the park. Not only did he steer Turkey to third place in at the 2002 World Cup, he won his first five games in South Korea without conceding a goal.


Three of those games were in the league and not surprisingly, FC Seoul were top of the standings. March 18 seems like a long time ago but that was when the team last scored a K-League goal. Six games later – two defeats and four goalless draws- and only the ineptitude of others keeps the capital outfit in the relatively lofty position of fifth.


The Turk was, and still is, the story of the season though headlines tend to include the word ‘crisis’ these days and it is becoming less and less of a surprise when Seoul add another 90 minutes to their unwanted collection.


Also unwelcome for the 2002 UEFA Coach of the Year is the number of injuries his players. Most of the team’s strikers have been struggling for fitness though with creativity drying up in midfield, they weren’t getting many chances anyway.


“Of course the most important thing is victory but I will try to give fans football that they can love. I like Barcelona. They always play at a high tempo as well as with a good strategy. I want to adopt that model as the one for my team. About a month after the season starts, fans will be able to see the kind of football I want,” said Gunes just before the season started.


In fact after a month of the season, fans were seeing the kind of football that they had seen many times before.


Korean fans are usually patient but there have been signs of discontent. Gunes’s refusal to play mercurial Portuguese playmaker and crowd favourite Ricardo Nascimento is not going down well in north-west Seoul.


These days a large banner can be seen featuring the long-haired midfielder can be seen behind the goal, with the words “Please Use” emblazoned across it.


Something similar written across the back of the net may be useful.


As expected, champions Seongnam Ilhwa Chunma are experiencing no such problems. After nine games, the seven-time title-winners are the only unbeaten team and lead Suwon Samsung Bluewings by three points.


Gyeongnam FC are the surprise package and sit in third. Another surprise is the performances of two title favourites Pohang Steelers and Ulsan Hyundai Horang-I. The south-eastern pair sit in eighth and ninth respectively.


Asian Cup


South Korean cup Pim Verbeek was hit with a double whammy in the second half of April when it was announced that Lee Young-pyo and Park Ji-sung had both undergone knee operations and were both highly doubtful for the Asian Cup.


Lee was the first to go under the knife after injuring knee ligaments against Sevilla in the UEFA Cup. The under-rated Tottenham left-back had been in consistent form for the London club and his experience, versatility and talent will be missed if he doesn’t return in time for the Jakarta games against Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and Indonesia.


The same can be said of his former PSV Eindhoven partner in crime. Park was in fine form for United and had just scored his third goal in two games when he collected the injury against Blackburn Rovers.


Initial reports suggested that there was little to be concerned about as the May 5 Manchester Derby was penciled in for his return. It was not to be and the 26 year-old flew to America for an operation and, if Manchester United can be beleived, won’t be back until August.


Seoul United.


It may not be of much interest to Ben Johnson, but his ‘victory’ in the 1988 Olympic 100 metre race is still the most famous sporting moment that has been witnessed in Seoul Olympic Stadium.


On April 25, at the same cavernous arena which stands on the south bank of the Han River, a South Korean third division football game between Seoul United and Changwon Dudae FC proved to be a slightly more low-key affair than the race which sent shockwaves around the world almost 19 years ago.


It was still historic. Just a few metres away from the spot where the vacant-eyed Canadian crossed the finish line; a white football rolled over the halfway line to signal the start of Seoul United’s life as a football club in the K3 league.

With some of the 14 teams in the top tier K-League struggling to attract fans, those that do battle two divisions further down the ladder would probably expect to be watched by no more than the players’ family or friends but April 21 was different. Among the dignitaries present were KFA President and FIFA Vice-President Chung Mong-joon and national team coach Pim Verbeek.


It may have been the official launch of the league but the day was all about Seoul United. The club’s name and its Newcastle United/Juventus-like black-and-white stripes shirts have been around the capital and its football scene since the turn of the century. That was when the idea of a “people’s club” for Seoul was born.


In a K-League dominated by clubs backed by big business, those people set about creating the first club that would be run by the fans. Followers could become shareholders in Seoul United and would take the decisions. Dismissed as romantics and dreamers by some in the media, the game against Changwon was vindication for those who had worked so hard. It was only the first step and it will be a long time before there is a chance of seeing the black and white stripes in the top flight of Korean football.


The K3 division is an amateur league and consists of ten teams. There is, as yet, no promotion to the second tier league in the country – known as the National League. However, the KFA will allow four or six K3 clubs into the FA Cup later in the year with the chance of facing one of the big boys from the K-League.


For the moment, it is time to focus on building a team and a season. The result wasn’t the most important aspect of the day but an entertaining game finished 2-2.

The Michigan House goes in for a smoking ban


casinos, smoking ban, online gambling, gambling gamesThe Michigan House was busy solving the problem of a smoking ban at workplaces. The main question was: which lives should be saved and which not? All members of the House spoke with a single voice for the smoking ban at all workplaces over the state except casinos. They thought they had done great work during that day.


Lee Gonzalez declared that the first thin the House cares about is public health. The smoking ban will be most likely to prevent hundreds of deaths. However why casinos aren’t included in the ban is not clear. The House seems to ignore the fact that their actions may entail undesirable consequences.


The plan was sent to the Senate, where all members supported the idea of laying a ban on smoking at all public places with no exceptions. Once again, public health is their priority one. Nevertheless, casino owners are indignant at the decision of the Senate. Why don’t they take into account the potential for income decreases?


Michigan is not the only state where the problem of a smoking ban is given higher priority to. For example, North Carolina, the state that specializes in the manufacture of tobacco, decided that public health is by far the most important issue.

A Drog with two Bandarqq ricks



Occasionally, a person can become so synonymous with a certain action that the English language will evolve as a result. For example, if the sight of anything Portuguese sends you into a psychotic rage, you’re ‘doing a Rooney’, if your alcoholic wife beats you up due to unresolved rage issues, she’s ‘knocked out a Gerry’, and if you pay six times over the correct market value for a mediocre footballer, you’ve ‘pulled a Fergie’.


We’ve all been had in the net on the odd occasion, but Fergie has bought more turkeys than Sainsbury’s in recent years. Michael Carrick is the latest addition to a list that includes Kleberson, Forlan, Veron and my personal favourite, the Djemba brothers. After blowing an incredible £18.6m on the talented but ultimately limited midfielder, Sir Alex has once again been tucked up like a sleeping baby.


Fulham can continue the theme of stitching up the purple-nosed one. Rooney’s a fitness doubt for the Old Trafford opener; after reading his autobiography, it comes Bandarqq as no surprise that he’s struggling with a groin injury. Fulham scored twice against Man U in both of their meetings last season, 12/1 about a shock is just too big.


If Martin Jol has finished laughing, he’ll take his Tottenham team to a tricky match at the Reebok. Jol has bought and sold exceptionally well in the summer, with Berbatov and Zokora being standout additions to the squad. Zokora believes he can be the ‘Vieira of the Lane’; expect him to be completely outplayed by Fabregas when they meet Arsenal. Tottenham are a decent team, but they always struggle against Bolton (they’ve lost six of their last seven league matches); I can’t see past the draw at 9/4.


The Liverpool players will be pleased to hear that Neil Warnock is banned from the touchline when they visit Bramall Lane, although this may not stop Warnock from launching threatening paper aeroplanes from the stand. Liverpool’s reserves saw off a full strength Chelsea last week, their first team receive the nap of the week award at a healthy 4/7.


Wigan manager Paul Jewell is a jovial character, but something tells me he won’t be smiling after his team take a mullering at St James’ Park. Wigan faced Newcastle on three occasions last season, the team playing at home won every match. Dull, but true. Wigan have Heskey, Newcastle have the points in the bag at 8/11.


Everton must be backed at 8/13 at home to new boys Watford. The partnership of Beattie and Johnson looks promising; Beattie can win the flick-ons to allow AJ to go down to ‘earn’ the penalty. Watford have visited Goodison Park on nine previous occasions, they’ve lost every time.


Gareth Southgate has been busy in the transfer market, the signing of Julio Arca for less than £2m looks an inspired piece of business. Reading are nicknamed the Royals, and like their German counterparts in Buckingham Palace, they’ll remain pointless on Saturday night. I do like the Boro at 9/5.


The Villa fans are a lot like me, happiness can be gained from just one little Yank. The Villa have lost at Highbury for the last eight years, it’s a good job this one is being played at the Emirates, they’re unbeaten there. There’s a momentum behind the Villa thanks to the takeover (I was a Randy Lerner once) and the arrival of Martin ‘The Saviour’ O’Neill; it would be folly to invest in the Gunners at 3/10. A red card in the match is on offer at 7/2; Graeme Poll is ‘officiating’, so you’re 50% less likely to collect.


Michael Ballack was substituted after 25 minutes in the Community Shield, I know what it’s like to finish prematurely, it’s no picnic. Four of the previous six matches between Chelsea and Man City have finished 1-0, with Drogba almost certain to squander a couple of chances; a repeat of the 1-0 scoreline at 6/1 looks a decent wager. If Ballack and Shevchenko both start, I’d rather be on a 2-0 stroll for the Champions at a healthy 11/2.


Last week’s accer hit both posts and the bar before being cleared off the line, this week’s will fly straight in the top corner. Liverpool, Everton, Newcastle, Middlesbrough and Chelsea are the chosen ones, the accer will pay out at 14/1 when successful.


The weekend specials:


“Tim’ll fix it” – Cahill to score with a header 11/2

“Young a tart” – Luke Young to be booked for diving 16/1

“A bitter Lehmann” – Aston Villa to score a goal Evs

“Duff’ll bag” – Damien Duff to score two or more goals 9/1


The quote of the week:


“What I’m looking for is flexibility.”

Steve McClaren knows the score.


The probably misheard quote of the week:


“I’m internally grateful to Steve McClaren.”

Dean Ashton desperately wanted that cap.


The lay man:


You’ve got to love the betting exchanges. People are lining up to back Arsenal at 1/3; if you ‘lay’ that bet, you’re effectively backing either the draw or a Villa win at 3/1. Happy, happy days.

Compulsive gamblers are often able to fool those around them about their problem — at first. But, the person they most often fool is themself.

Twenty-five years ago, gambling was restricted to Nevada and Atlantic City. Gamblers could take a weekend trip once or twice a year, come home and forget about it for a while. But, now that all 50 states have some form of legal gambling, it is as close as the lottery tickets on sale at the corner convenience store.


As the problem of compulsive gambling grew, the American Psychiatric Association recognized it for what it is, an emotional illness, another form of addiction. The APA states it is an impulse-control disorder causing negative consequences, similar to drug and alcohol addiction.


Now, states are setting up TOGEL centers where certified compulsive-gambling counselors are trained to help gamblers deal with the addiction and keep it from taking over their lives and ruining the lives of their family members.


Provident Counseling in St. Louis is one of the recognized compulsive-gambling treatment centers in Missouri. In a workshop recently, counselors and Missouri professionals who deal with compulsive gambling explained how widespread the problem is and what resources are available to help gamblers kick the habit.


There were 23 million visits to Missouri riverboat casinos last year. Some people only went one time, others visited everyday or more frequently. It is estimated that about 1 percent of the persons who gamble will have a compulsive gambling problem.


A toll-free telephone number is available to anyone in the metropolitan area, including the Metro East, where seekers may find counseling and treatment. They may also be referred to their local chapter of Gamblers Anonymous or for families of gamblers, Gam-Anon. The services are provided free of charge to the compulsive gambler who needs help. The number is 1-888-BETSOFF.


Scott, who gave only his first name, is a person who availed himself of the toll-free number. He was on the Alton Belle in June 2001 when he called.


“I asked for a location where a Gamblers Anonymous meeting was being held that night,” Scott said. “Fortunately, I was given the number of Provident Counseling on Watson Road.” There was a meeting that night which Scott attended. He was assigned a counselor who helped him break his habit.


“I have relapsed,” Scott admitted. “I was clean for 14 months, but gave in. I’ve been clean for three months now. Three months is easy because of the shame. It’s like a puppy that pees on the carpet and you smack it with a newspaper. After a while, the puppy forgets about the newspaper and does it again.”


Ironically, the funding for the programs to help compulsive gamblers control their addiction is provided by the riverboat casinos.


The industry believes its interests are best served when gambling is viewed as recreation and not as the path to destruction.


A problem gambler may be charming and loving, intellectually astute, articulate, sociable, philanthropic, energized and enduring, achievement oriented, and clever — clever enough to make people think that everything is fine.


Sooner or later, though, the truth about the gambler’s insecurity and low self-esteem and the fact that he is unrealistic about goals comes to the fore.


John Crum, director of counseling for Provident Counseling, described the stages of problem gambling that experts believe most problem gamblers go through as they move toward becoming compulsive gamblers.


The lure is the winning stage when the person discovers that gambling is an exciting social activity and perhaps a way to escape the stress of work, family or loneliness. Not all gamblers go through these stages, nor do they occur in any particular order or rate.


The gambler may share his largesse by showering family and friends with gifts, taking them on expensive vacations, and just plain living “high on the hog.”


There is the losing stage when the gambler becomes preoccupied with gambling. Bets become larger and more frequent. Then the gambler starts to “chase” his losses — to try to recoup the money and get ahead of the game. The gambler may start to max out his credit cards, pawn or sell personal property, dip into investment accounts, and borrow heavily. The problem becomes visible to those around the gambler. Bill collectors may come knocking at the door.


In the desperation stage, the gambler may experience health problems, relationships my falter or fall apart, and the gambler may turn to crime after financial resources are exhausted.


According to Crum, some experts believe there is a fourth stage called hopelessness, when the gambler believes there is no hope or help. Depression is common and suicide is a real risk. Suicide risk among problem gamblers is twice that of society at large and more likely than with any other addiction.


Compulsive gambling can affect men and women of any age, race or religion, without regard to social status. Young people are getting involved in gambling as early as elementary school.


“This is the first generation of kids who have grown up with the proliferation of legal gambling,” said Shelley Perez, Responsible Gaming Program coordinator for the Missouri Lottery. “We didn’t have this when we were growing up. Now there’s the lottery and the riverboat casinos.”


Perez and Melissa Stephens, Problem Gaming Program administrator for the Missouri Gaming Commission, developed an assembly program for middle schools called “Beat the Addiction: Choose the Right Path,” which they presented in 19 schools last year, reaching 7,400 students.


“Schools denied they had a gambling problem because they aren’t located near a riverboat casino,” Perez said. “So we geared it toward all addictions and made it an assembly program to reach more children.”


The program is available free of charge to all public and private schools in Missouri, funded by the Missouri Alliance to Curb Problem Gambling.


Both Missouri and Illinois have set up a voluntary ban program for compulsive gamblers. By signing up, gamblers accept a voluntary ban from casinos, in Missouri for a lifetime, in Illinois for a lifetime with an escape clause.


After five years, a gambler in Illinois can petition to get off the list and go back to gambling on the boats with an affidavit from a licensed mental health professional that says the patient is no longer a compulsive gambler.


But, the counselors on the panel at Provident scoffed at this. “That’s a malpractice suit waiting to happen,” said one. Under Missouri’s program, compulsive gambling is a lifetime problem for which there is no cure, only treatment.


The program has consequences for violators. If they go on a riverboat casino they are subject to an arrest for trespassing and to a fine. Stephens said 6,000 people have voluntarily put themselves on the lifetime ban list in Missouri.


“We have 8 to 12 arrests per month on average,” she said.

Short glossary

Box man: is the craps table supervisor who sits between the one stickman and directly behind the thousands of dollars worth of chips that the casino keeps on hand at each craps table.


Dealers: the two dealers at the Craps table are responsible for all the bets made on his half of the table. Whenever you want to make free odds, place, or lay bet in a casino, you should give the money to the dealer at your end of the table and he will make the bet for you.


Floor men: are the supervisors who are responsible for the games in the casino and the employees running them. Floor men spend their time behind the tables watching over the games.


Marker Puck: is the plastic disk, which the dealers use to mark the “Point” on the Craps table. When the puck is turned so that the side inscribed with ‘off’ is face up, then all free odds bets have no action on the following roll of the dice.


Pit: is the area enclosed by all of the craps tables in a casino. Floor men walk around in the pit and keep an eye on the craps games in progress and the casino employees.


Stickman: is the casino employee who calls out the dice rolls and returns the dice to the shooter. The stickman also is responsible for the placing and paying the proposition bets.


The basic idea behind Craps is to establish a “point” number and roll that number again before rolling a 7 (craps). Only the numbers 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, or 10 can be a point number and all other rolls on the dice have special meanings depending on when they are rolled (before or after a point is established).


The casino game of Craps is played with a set of two perfectly balanced dice with each die having six white dots numbered 1 through 6. The game is played by tossing the dice from one of the short ends of the table to the other (make sure that both die hit the opposite side wall of the table). Payoffs are made based on the number combination displayed when the dice come to rest.


The inside walls of the table are covered with a serrated egg-carton like foam, designed to make the dice bounce around to assure randomness. Each throw of the dice is called a “roll”. Players take turn rolling the dice, clockwise around the table, and the player rolling at any given time is called the “shooter”. When a new shooter is given the dice, his or her first roll is called the “”Come Out”” roll. This begins a new series of rolls by that shooter and lasts for as long as that shooter continues to make winning rolls.


A new game in Craps begins with the “Come Out” roll. A “Come Out” roll can be made only when the previous shooter fails to make a winning roll — more correctly known as “not making the “Point”” or “seven out”. A new game then begins with a new shooter. If the current shooter does make his “Point”, the dice are returned to him and he then begins the new “Come Out” roll. This is a continuation of that shooter’s roll, although technically, the “Come Out” roll identifies a new game about to begin.


When the shooter fails to make his or her “Point”, the dice are then offered to the next player for a new “Come Out” roll and the game continues in the same manner. The new shooter will be the person directly next to the left of the previous shooter.


On the “Come Out” roll, the “Pass Line” bet wins if the shooter rolls a 7 or an 11. The bet loses automatically if the shooter rolls 2, 3 or 12. This is known as “rolling craps”. If the shooter rolls 4, 5, 6, 8, 9 or 10 the shooter must roll this same number again (to win) before rolling the number 7. Rolling any of these numbers on the “Come Out” roll is called “establishing the “Point”. Any number so rolled is thereafter referred to as the “Point”.


Establishing a “Point” is an event that happens as the immediate result of the “Come Out” roll, unless that “Come Out” roll results in 7, 11, 2, 3 or 12, in which case more rolls must be made until a “Point” is established.


It now becomes important to mention a device that looks like a hockey puck called the “Puck”. It is white on one side and black on the other, and is used by the dealers to identify the “Point”. Once the shooter establishes the “Point”, the dealer will move this puck to that “Point” number and turn it the white side up. The puck stays on this “Point” until the shooter either makes his “Point” or until he sevens out. When the puck is moved to the “Don’t Come” bar 12 area and turned black side up. The significance of this device is only in tracking the game. White side up over a “Point” indicates the game is in progress and that this box number is the “Point”. Black side up means a new “Come Out” roll is about to take place.


As with all table Togel Hongkong games, you will begin by changing your cash money into gaming chips. In Craps you do this by throwing your money on the table and yelling, “change”. If the table is playing well there will be a lot of people crowding around and a lot of noise, so make sure you yell out. Also it is a good idea to wait and ask for change between rolls of the dice.


In Craps, winning or losing depends on a variety of different possible outcomes on any roll of the two dice. The two dice can produce many different number combinations; some can be made several ways, others only one way. For example, two dice can roll the number 6 as follows: 5/1, 4/2, 3/3, 2/4 and 1/5. But the number 2 can only be rolled one way: 1/1.


Numbers such as 6, which can be rolled several ways, don’t pay as much as numbers which can be rolled only one way, unless you are betting that the number will be rolled in a specific way, such has 3/3, known as “Hard ways”. All winning payoffs are, therefore, determined by the frequency in which any two-dice number combinations can be rolled. Generally, the harder the combination is to roll, the more it will pay, and vice versa.


Although really taking advantage of the many betting options can involve a considerable degree of mastery, in its simplest form, Craps is a game where players bet either that the shooter will make his “Point” or that he or she will not make their “Point”. Betting that the shooter will make his/her “Point” is called betting “with the shooter” (also called “betting right”) and betting that the shooter will not make his/her “Point” is called “betting against the shooter” (also called “betting wrong”).


To bet with the shooter, you must place your bet in an area marked “”Pass Line””, before the new shooter rolls the dice. The so-called “Pass Line” is a strip on the table layout marked by two lines roughly two inches wide and it rims the entire table layout across from the Box Man. To bet against the shooter, you must place your bet in an area marked “Don’t Pass”. This area is also a strip on the table layout and it rims the table directly above the “Pass Line”.


No matter what stage the game is in, whether on the “Come Out” roll, or in progress, you can jump in immediately and place any bets. The only exception to this is the bet called the “Pass Line” bet with odds”, which can be made only on the “Come Out” roll. You can, however, bet with the shooter even while the game is in progress by placing a “Pass Line” bet without odds. Placing your chips halfway over one of the two lines framing the “Pass Line” area does this.


Before the new shooter rolls the dice on his or her “Come Out” roll, there are a variety of bets that can be made. The “Pass Line” and Don’t Pass Line” bet are the most common bets to make. Once the shooter establishes a “Point”, you can then place an additional bet behind your “Pass Line” bet. This is called “taking odds”.


In most casinos you can bet up to three times the amount of your “Pass Line” bet. This is called “taking full odds”. Some casinos offer up to 100 times odds! This simply means that you can bet up to 100 times the amount of your “Pass Line” bet once a “Point” has been established.


Betting the “Don’t Pass Line” is the exact opposite of betting the “Pass Line”. The “Don’t Pass” bet wins if the shooter rolls any craps; 2 or 3 (12 is considered a push; the bet neither wins nor loses, merely stays in limbo till a decision is reached on subsequent rolls) and loses if shooter rolls a 7 or 11.


Once the shooter establishes a “Point” your “Don’t Pass” bet stays in action, win until the shooter rolls a 7 or make his/her “Point”. Therefore, a “Don’ Pass” bet wins if the shooter fails to make his “Point”, but loses if the shooter does make the “Point”. You can also take odds on a “Don’t Pass” bet.
