soles on my shoes were soft from the hot asphalt and concrete

literally melting my shoe soles away.

The Slots-A-Fun Casino is located on

The Las Vegas Strip. $3.00 Black Jack is the favorite game of

many people in Las Vegas. The first is the shape of the

building. I disagree.

The New York New York Hotel and Casino is all of the fun of the real

New York but a lot cheaper. The Luxor Hotel and

Casino of today appears much different then the magnificent building

that was originally there. It is modeled after the gr

eat pyramids of Egypt. The appearance is drastically different,.

The Luxor Hotel and Casino has changed from an Egyptian theme to a

corporate owned casino filled with gimmicky adverting. Slots-A-Fun Casino is a fun place to gamble cheaply if you

go there during a slow time. The Luxor Hotel and

Casino is really cool for two reasons. The Palms Casino and Resort has been the site of many TV


times.. I have

never been inside the Palms Casino and Resort except for when I see

this Vegas Hotel on television.


If you visit the Palms Casino and

Resort make sure your bring your camera so you can take a picture of

the Paparazzi who may be there outside snapping pictures of the rich

and famous when they arrive at the Palms Casino and Resort.

The 7-11 convenience stores in Las

Vegas are everywhere. The other

reason the Luxor Hotel and Casino is so cool is because of the huge

light beaming out from the top of the Luxor into space. The

parking garage at the New York New York Hotel and Casino is my

favorite ride. The roller coaster is fun…to watch. If it is

not a slow night then do not even bother to show up to the

Slots-A-Fun Casino.

There are many casinos in Las Vegas

Nevada. You may have seen the Palms Casino and Resort on

television. Do not

attend the Slots-A-Fun Casino on a weekend or any other time the

place is busy. If you want a tattoo they have a shop inside.

Gold Spike Hotel and Casino

I am a huge fan of the downtown Vegas

properties but this strip property make my list. When you are speeding up to the

top layer it looks and feels like you are flying of the edge of the

building onto the roller coaster. At least they

have not changed the sweet shape f the pyramid.

Slots-A-Fun Casino

The Gold Spike Hotel and Casino is

located in my favorite part of Las Vegas. It is a popular spot for

amateur photographers to snap a world class picture. During peak nights the Slots-A-Fun

Casino is packed with people wanting to play low limit games. When the Slots-A-Fun Casino is empty of locals and

tourists then it is a very fun place to gamble in Las Vegas. Fremont Street. You can also walk if you are not lazy. $2.00 Blackjack is

only available occasionally. (readers or lookers?) The show is adult oriented

so don’t take Paul “Pee Wee” Reubens with you.

The Palms Casino and Resort is a

favorite of Britney Spears when she visits Las Vegas. It is by the Circus Circus Hotel and Casino.

Slots-A-Fun Casino has many low limit table games including $1.00

blackjack. They usually have some video gaming machines. Downtown Las Vegas is much funner and generally cheaper then staying on the

Vegas Strip. If the Aliens

ever come to play poker they will probably come to the Luxor Hotel

and Casino.

Palms Casino and Resort

The Palms Casino and Resort is where

the middle class come to see the rich and famous. The Gold Spike Hotel and Casino also has a

sports book inside called “Leroy’s Sports book”.

At night time the Palms Casino and

Resort is an absolutely gorgeous building. You can find $1.00 black jack or $1,000 black jack tables.

From the high rollers VIP areas in fancy Vegas Casinos to the smoky

keno rooms with ragged carpet. There are always exceptions and some great deals can be

found for the Las Vegas Strip hotels and casinos during non peak

While visiting the Luxor Hotel and

Casino make sure you get tickets to the show starring Angelica

Bridges. I assume the

inside of the Palms Casino and Resort is just as beautiful. On a Sunday when there are only a few cars in there

you can drive your car to the top. You are right down by the

Fremont Light Show and all of the casinos and sites located in the

downtown area of historic Las Vegas. The 7-11 stores are not considered a casino to

most people. Many people now days consider the New York New

York Hotel and Casino to be slightly on the tacky side. Angelica Bridges starred on Baywatch and is also a favorite

of Playboy readers. The rich and famous

come to the Palms Casino and Resort to be seen by the middle class

tourists. What other gaming property in Las Vegas can

offer you a Slurpee? The fact that I can play video poker with bad

odds and drink blue colored Slurpee’s all day makes the 7-11

convenience stores an awesome Las Vegas gaming property.

Regardless of where you want to gamble

in Las Vegas you can always find something cool, tacky, common, rare,

expensive, cheap, or even dirt cheap. Regardless of your budget you can find

somewhere fun and unique to gamble while visiting Las Vegas.

Luxor Hotel and Casino

New York New York Hotel and Casino

The New York New York Hotel and Casino

was considered a truly amazing architecture and styling casino when

it was first opened. If it is summertime and over 100 degrees I highly suggest you

do not walk the strip. I love the

7-11 stores for gambling. Just because you may want to

visit an expensive Las Vegas Casino that does not mean you have to

play there.

In 2007 they replace most of the

Egyptian themed items and decorations. I wonder when

Britney plays blackjack and wants another card if she tells the

Blackjack dealer “Hit Me Baby One More Time.” After all of

Britney’s kids I think she was hit again.

If you choose to stay at the Gold Spike

Hotel and Casino during you vacation to Las Vegas you will be well

rewarded with your choice of location. If you do want to see the Strip

you are a very short bus ride away. I wish they would have kept

the Egyptian theme at the Luxor Hotel and Casino

Traveling Around – Michigan – Casino Trip To The Upper Peninsula

I had more points accumulated than the wife so I got more entries. We listened for a bit but were too timid to get on the dance floor.

They had a Player’s Club sponsored slot tournament on Wednesday that we played in. Hm-m-m, maybe I’ll get back again this summer.

Video poker was about what should be expected since I didn’t get a royal and I wound up putting about $4,000 through the machines and lost $45. I checked it over a period of about 12 hours and one or the other of them was there all the time.

I had intended to go to some museums in Sault Ste Marie but video poker kept calling me at the times I wanted to go so didn’t make them. They appeared from 1 to 5. The machine that caught my eye, however, and I sat there immediately was a Quick Quad machine. As normal we didn’t do very well, but I was lucky at one session and wound up in 7th place which was good for $25 free play which I put to good use at video poker.

I headed for that machine Wednesday morning but got there too late. I usually mix my play between video poker and some blackjack, but this time I was content with the video poker. It was a polka band – Richie Yurkovich and Polkarioty – that attracts an enthusiastic older crowd. We probably won’t get back up there this year and hope they don’t change Sacys menu too much before we do.. Someone had begun playing. Ran into some rain after crossing the bridge but it quit pretty quickly. (I got the picture from a video I took and the video play controls are at the bottom of the picture – sorry.)

Coming Home and some comments

After a leisurely breakfast we packed up our stuff and got on the road about 10. There is a bank of 7 nickel video poker machines with lower payoffs that hover around 97 or 98 percent and we both spent some time there. My best (and most fun) hand came when it dealt me three 6’s, a five, and an ace for a dealt Quick Quads. I think that a “team of two” was playing because either that initial person or another fellow that I recognized was playing every time I went by. Pleasant and were home by 3.

Additionally, there was a once a month activity in the Conference Center that I like to at least stick my head into. Perhaps next time. I’d image that by 5 PM, there were some very happy people because beer was flowing at $5 a pitcher. The wife, as usual, did better than I and was at or near even. They have a bar that has 25 cent full pay jacks or better and the wife spent most of her gambling time there. Most of the attractions that I wanted to see were closed for the winter months (they open up later this month). I played for several hours on Tuesday. Had lunch at Soaring Eagle while going through Mt.

Although it wasn’t quite this crowded when we were there, lots of people were around

How Jack Johnson Destroyed the Color Barrier

He bet against Louis and criticized him publicly. Shreiber, who was bitter over being dumped by Johnson, was all too happy to help the U.S. He never fought for the championship again but had a long career, fighting professionally until 1938. Jack learned to read and write, and worked odd jobs to support his family.

Burns earned his money. He was romantically linked to everyone from Mata Hari to Mae West. Johnson’s words added fuel to the fire. His competitive spirit was still alive, and he did not want another black fighter eclipsing his career. On June 4, 1913, Johnson was sentenced to a year and a day in federal prison.

Jack was a frail boy who was protected by his two older daughters. He won a few fights and got mouthy about his talent. Choynski had fought all the champions of the day: John L. It was clear that Johnson fought hard but lost to a younger, stronger man.

Betting odds were unanimously in Jeffries’ favor. He was a busy champion, defending his title seventeen times against most of the black heavyweights of his time.

Orbach, Barak, The Johnson-Jeffries Fight and Censorship of Black Supremacy, July 22 2010, NYU Journal of Law & Liberty, Vol. Choynski beat Johnson up and knocked him out in the third round. 

It wasn’t close. Both men were freed on the condition they left town. Jeffries because I outclassed him in every department of the fighting game. Trainer Jack Blackburn warned Louis: “If you really ain’t gonna be another Jack Johnson, you got some hope. Johnson held the title for five years. Although only a light heavy weight (170 pounds), Choynski’s courage and ferocious punching power more than made up for height and weight disadvantages. Yet he chose to fight defensively and counter punch, letting Johnson do all the leading. District Attorney prosecute Johnson. He took a brutal beating from Johnson, who punished the champion for fourteen rounds. White man hasn’t forgotten that fool nigger with his white women, acting like he owned the world.”  

Johnson was the first son (and third child of nine) born to  Henry and Tina “Tiny” Johnson, two former slaves who both worked blue collar jobs as a janitor and a dishwasher to support their children and put them through school. He made no concessions to the racial ideas of his time: be it from his own people or from whites.

On June 10 1946, Johnson was driving his sports car in North Carolina. The venerable Nat Fleischer, publisher of Ring Magazine and guru on all things boxing, named Jack Johnson the greatest heavyweight boxing champion of all time.

March 31 1878 is the birth date of John Arthur “Jack” Johnson, who became the first African American heavyweight boxing champion of the world. His opponent was an American named jess Willard. Johnson was prosecuted for a law that was not in effect at the time of his actions. He had made history.

But poverty is a great leveler of races. Boxing was illegal in Texas, and in much of the country, although enforcement varied greatly from state to state.

Johnson was boisterous in his demands to fight the white heavyweight champion, Jim Jeffries. I faced both and should know. All tried to fight Johnson, and all were avoided by the champ. . Johnson later said he did not experience racism growing up, which some might find unusual for a black child growing up in the South in the nineteenth century.

Unforgivable Blackness: The Rise and Fall of Jack Johnson, a documentary by filmmaker Ken Burns based on the nonfiction book of the same name by Geoffrey C. Famed as a defensive tactician, Johnson could punch hard with both hands. His was a very public life, ushering in the idea of an athlete as a celebrity as well as a champion. After losing seven of his last nine fights Jack officially hung up the gloves at age sixty.

By 1902 Johnson was an up-and-coming heavyweight on the California circuit with 27 wins (he actually fought well over fifty fights, but many were ‘off the books’). His official record was 79-8 with 46 knockouts. The restaurant refused to serve him because of the color of his skin. This annoyed the boxing establishment in Galveston, who invited veteran boxer Joe Choynski to Galveston to shut Johnson up. Jack’s early experience led him to believe there was no difference between black people and white people except skin color. You take out the issue of white women and replace it with the issue of religion. The press advanced all sorts of theories why whites were better than blacks. Then film of the fight was shown. Then he moved to California and started fighting in earnest.

In the last years of Johnson’s career another African American heavyweight boxer rose to prominence. Jeffries’ blows had no steam behind them, so how could he hope to defeat me?”

The larger controversy was a legal one. Johnson hopped the rails to Denver, where he joined a training camp. His successor, President Obama, has also refused to issue a pardon, and his administration states it is unlikely that Obama will change his mind. 

Jeffries retired without fighting Johnson. African American scholar Booker T. As an adult he discovered how many people disagreed.

Johnson went through a seeming revolving door of women. But in the end the fight was a dud. Sullivan, “Gentleman” Jim Corbett, Robert Fitzsimmons, and the reigning champ, Jim Jeffries.

Ali had lost his champtionship and his boxing license and was battling the federal government over his refusal to fight in Vietnam on religious grounds. 270, 2010; Arizona Legal Studies Discussoin Paper NBo 10-009. Jeffries had a powerful wallop, but Choynski had a paralyzing punch. When Louis got a title shot against the reigning champ, Irishman Jim Braddock, Johnson offered to train Braddock. The term “any other immoral purpose” allowed prosecution of just about anyone (from Charlie Chaplin to Charles Manson) for just about anything.

International Boxing Hall of Fame, Joe Choynski. But many blacks were critical of Jack for rubbing his victory into white faces because this incited violence against Johnson’s own people.

Johnson had also committed two sins: publicly beating a white man, and bragging about it. He was the hardest puncher in the last fifty years…I think his left hook was even more effective than  (Jack) Dempsey’s.”

The Great White Hope, Howard Sackler’s 1967 theater dramatization of Jack Johnson’s life. 

Johnson’s first professional loss was a turning point in his career, because he got to share a jail cell with Joe Choynski for twenty-three days. Willard’s body shots and the heat overcame the champion and he was knocked out in the 26th round.

es Black history month -= Wednesday, January 24, 2001, Jack Johnson (title) 

The intent of the law was to protect young women coming from rural areas to work in large cities from being exploited, kidnapped, and trafficked in prostitution. Give me Joe Choynski anytime. At 6 feet 6 inches and 235 pounds, Willard was much larger than Johnson. Bush refused to issue a pardon. Choynski was generous with his experience, sharing with Johnson the nuances of ring strategy, how to fight tactically, and how to turn defense into offense.

“I won from Mr. He was a gamer who gave even champions all they could handle in the ring.

The Mann Act was used to prosecute Jack Johnson for his relationship with a white prostitute named Belle Schreiber. Johnson sped off angrily down Highway 1 until a violent collision with another vehicle  ended his life at age sixty-eight. Most of his losses came at the end of his career. Everyone Johnson knew was dirt poor.

Johnson’s life draws mixed reactions from his own people. . The two fought once, and Johnson was given the decision. 8, p. It was very hot, and midway through the 45 round match Johnson began laboring. This claim was contradicted by the news that Johnson bet $2500 on himself to win the fight. Jeffries was finally persuaded to return to the ring and set things right.

Blacks (or coloreds, as they were known at the time) were also critical of Johnson’s preference for white women. Willard was a working cowboy who came to boxing late. Soon a crowd gathered. On February 25 1901 Choynski and Johnson had a fight.

In 1921 Jack Johnson turned himself into American authorities and was imprisoned for his Mann Act conviction. Washington said:

Only eight years after his death Jack Johnson became a charter member of the Boxing Hall of Fame. Joe Jeanette accused Jack Johnson of drawing the color line against his own people.

Choynski saw Johnson’s physical prowess and innate ability, and helped Jack realize how important defense was to a fighter. Then the war broke out, and the Johnson’s sailed away from Europe.

This is high praise from a man many boxing experts consider the greatest heavyweight boxing champion of all time.

In the 1960’s Muhammed Ali saw a play about Jack Johnson’s life. Print.PG18. 

Jack was born in Galveston, Texas, and grew up playing with black and white children. His best punches were his left jab and uppercuts. That’s my story.”

The first controversy was Johnson’s refusal to give other African American boxers a shot at his title. Jack became more confident, and a defiant cockiness emerged – a trait that would follow him during his boxing career and public life.

After three weeks bail was reduced to an affordable level. The hype for the fight was enormous. The two sailed to France. Johnson frequented brothels and cavorted with prostitutes of both races, but reserved his marriage vows to white women – he said he had been married to black women and they had mistreated him.


“Jeffries number one? No sir. That was how he started boxing. Ward (2004). Johnson toyed with Burns, taunting him, hitting him with a barrage of punches, then catching Burns before he hit the floor, holding him up so he could punish him some more. Public (white) outcry turned to Jim Jeffries, living a quiet retirement on his alfalfa farm. The outcome was never in doubt. Other activities included acting on stage, driving gaudy colored sports cars, dabbling in jazz bands, and running nightclubs.  As if on cue the Texas Rangers appeared, arrested the two fighters and threw them in jail. He stopped at a diner in a small town near Raleigh to have lunch. The champion had a string of very public affairs with white actresses and personalities. The documentary was initially broadcast on PBS on January 17 and 18, 2005. With no pretensions to maintain, blacks and whites co-existed, and learned to help each other make it through the grind of day to day survival. A master counter puncher, Johnson would lure his opponent into letting his hands go, block the blows, and then rain down merciless counterpunches. 

The “Great White Hope” came out of retirement to fight champion Jack Johnson in what was called “The Fight of the Century.” Jeffries declared: “I feel obligated to the sporting public at least to make an effort to reclaim the heavyweight championship for the white race. Jack ducked perhaps the three best boxers (black or white) of his time: Sam Langford, Joe Jeanette, and Harry Wills. It was reported that Burns finally agreed to fight Johnson when he was guaranteed a payday of $30,000 – a kingly sum at the time.

In 2014 Senator John McCain continued a ten year campaign to secure a posthumous presidential pardon of Jack Johnson for his Mann Act conviction, on the grounds that the conviction was racially motivated and “diminished the athletic, cultural, and historical significance of Jack Johnson, and unduly tarnished his reputation.”

Much later in his career, Jack Johnson would compare Choynski’s power to the legendary power of Jim Jeffries:

Johnson was now a fully developed man: six foot one inch tall, 200 pounds, with well developed muscles, very dark skin, a shiny bald head, and a mouthful of gold teeth. He always remembered Choynski’s remark: “A man who can move like you should never have to take a punch.” Later Johnson attributed much of his success to what he learned from Joe Choynski.

Jack Johnson was a hero to American blacks. He refused to ever fight Langford again, despite numerous demands to do so.

President George W. I should step into the ring again and demonstrate that a white man is king of them all.” 

Whites were by turn devastated and infuriated by the result of the fight. Johnson made intelligent use of the press to generate publicity for his fights. Johnson had trouble finding fights in France due to his status as a convicted criminal. He was buried in an unmarked grave next to the graves of two of his wives: Etta Duryea Johnson and Irene Pineau.

Jack toughened up more working at the docks in Galveston. He was quoted in the press as accusing Jeffries of ducking him. Jack Johnson was fearless. Houses and businesses were looted and burned. Johnson, on the other hand, was accused of ducking talented black heavyweight Sam Langford. Jack Johnson was the first African American heavyweight boxing champion of the world. Jeffries was totally outclassed by Johnson, who knocked out the former champion in the fifteenth round.

 The sheriff allowed Johnson and Choynski to spar every afternoon. Dozens of blacks were killed, and some whites. 

“It is unfortunate that a man with money should use it in a way to injure his own people, in the eyes of those who are seeking to uplift his race and improve its conditions, I wish to say emphatically that Jack Johnson’s actions did not meet my personal approval and I am sure they do not meet with the approval of the colored race.”

Ward, Geoffrey C. I never changed my mind at any time. While an appeal of Johnson’s conviction was pending, Jack disappeared. He lived his life so large, in and out of the ring, that he was called “the most notorious African-American on Earth.”

Johnson took Louis’ career as a supreme insult. The next year Johnson won what was called the World Colored Heavyweight Championship. He won his first fight at the age of twelve, fighting back against another child who was bullying him. Property was destroyed. See 

Johnson’s last defense of his title was in 1915 at a racetrack in Havana, Cuba. But after the Jeffries fight, Johnson’s reign as champion was marred by legal problems, a flight from the country, a life of exile, and countless controversy.. Knopf, 2004. His name was Joe Louis, and he studiously avoided any possible resemblance to Jack Johnson. There were race riots across the country. Braddock declined, and was knocked out by Louis in 1937.

Later Jack claimed he threw the fight in a deal to avoid the Mann Act conviction. His left hand was a corker. Jack turned the focus of his public campaign against the new champion, Canadian Tommy Burns. He was energetic and worked a variety of other jobs. After he did his time he returned to boxing. Burns won an Emmy Award for his direction.

Sometimes he was intentionally outrageous, like the time he walked a pet leopard while sipping champagne. In 1912 Johnson was accused of violating the White Slave Traffic Act of 1910. The Mann Act (named for Illinois Congressman James Mann) prohibited interstate transportation of  a “woman or girl for the purpose of prostitution or debauchery, or for any other immoral purpose.” Thus a very wide net was cast to allow prosecution of (mostly) men for most manners of sexual relations – even consensual sex.

After the fight Johnson was outspoken:

The trial was manifestly unfair. . Before I entered the ring I was certain I would be the victor. He met up with his wife, another (former) prostitute known as Lucille Cameron, in Montreal


As we complete our new surveys, new listings are added.

But the expected payouts of games can vary widely between casinos as well as between games in the same casino. Games with higher variance will have “wilder” swings

and many people are attracted to this feature.

Our Tunica Area and North Louisiana games databases have just been updated.

The more hands you can play given your bankroll, the more likely you are to hit a Royal Flush or other high-paying hand, so exhausting your bankroll

on low-paying machines isn’t a great strategy.

This site is about playing video poker and winning. If you notice errors in our database, please use our “Contact Form”

to let us know.

Here, we examine techniques for making the most of your video poker playing and help you to choose

games that put more money in your pocket.

On average, a $20 deposit will pay for four times as many hands on a 99 percent game as it will on a 96 percent game (at five quarters per hand).

Winning (or minimizing losses) at video poker requires not only that you play the game properly,

but that you carefully choose the games and the places at which you play. When statisticians

refer to variance, they’re talking about how strongly a game adheres to its average return.

Yet, you’ll often find uninformed players at one of the lower paying games sitting next to an available full-pay game.

A key attraction of gambling is the “streak”, or “swing” of the game.

We are in the process of surveying casinos in other areas as well.

This is because we tend to play more than just one hand, and in fact usually play tens, hundreds, or even thousands of hands over the course of a casino visit.

Over time, most video poker games can be expected to return 95-100 percent of the money bet to the player

(occasionally, you can even find games that return more than 100% with perfect play). Our goal is to create the best online database

of video poker games possible, and we expect to revise our software to provide more usable information as opportunities arise.

If you want to maximize your winnings and minimize your losses at video poker, it is critical that you play only the best games.

Games can’t be adjusted or influenced while you are playing them; they are exactly what the paytable says they are. We’ll notifiy you whenever we have new updates ready..

The difference between a game returning 96 percent and one returning 99 percent is dramatic.

When speaking of variance, however, it is important to remember that games will generate an average return based on their paytables. Also, any suggestions for improving the software will be appreciated.

Here, we’ll help you select casinos and games that will increase your chances of winning, and avoid those that take your hard-earned cash.

You can use your Internet-connected smart phone to find best casinos and games when you are on the road.

It is not unusual to find a bank of games having one or two higher paying games with the adjoining games offering much lower paybacks. Please spend a little time learning to sort and select

games to find what you’re looking for. Statistically, this is a result of the “variance” of the game. A player can go from a string of losses one minute to a string of wins

the next, and this contributes to the excitement of the game.

Put another way, the 25c player may, on average, lose $720 in a typical weekend on a 96% game, but will average only $180 in losses on a 99% game.

Over the millions of hands that are played on a given game, any game will generate a return for the casino that is at least

as great as the paytable implies (“at least”, because many players will not play the game correctly, which increases the casino’s return). If you

hit a Royal Flush on one hand, the odds of hitting one on the next hand are precisely the same as the hand before. Use our “Find Games” database to search out the best casinos

for playing video poker in your location of interest (note: you must

As a general rule, it is worth remembering that the outcome of every hand of video poker is independent of what happened in the hands before. Or, at the very least, playing and losing less. You will then be able to easily locate

the best games and the best places to play (as well as places to avoid)

Football and Golf Betting

No matter if it is Championship, Premier League, FA Cup, League 1, League 2, Capital One Cup, Community Shield or Conference betting, it is important for you to know how to read the odds and find the bookie that provides the best lines available.

There are three types of odds: decimal, fractional and American. Their names describe the way the odds are written by the bookies. The difference from this kind of odds and the decimal ones stands in the meaning expressed by the odds. Before figuring out the mathematical likelihood of defeat, victory or draw of a sports team, the odds makers are considering a wide range of variables. Fractional odds will say how much profit will be gained by the punter from one unit. The home field advantage can also be influencing the odds. Golf betting is completely different from football betting for example. Only in England there are 8 different leagues. American odds tell the positive or negative outcome of a bet at a 100 unit stake.

Odds are an interpretation of the chance that a certain outcome will take place during an event. This type of odds is also the most popular and it is offered by many bookmakers. Of course, one of the most important is the team’s performance during this season, as well as in past sessions. They are also referred to as lines and they are set by bookmakers. For Conference betting for example you will most probably receive the odds expressed in fractions. Only knowledge will transform you from an idle better to a winner. After all, the reputation of a bookie stands in its ability to set the odds accurately. Therefore, before rushing directly into placing a random bet, the first thing you should do is to get acquainted with the meaning of an odd and the three types of lines used in betting: fractional, decimal and American. In football, there are many leagues in which you can place a bet. This statistic process is a matter of intense research and years of experience. Everything becomes much easier once you know the basics. In UK however, the most commonly used type of odds are the decimal ones. The highest Conference betting odds can go from 6 to 261 for the participating teams.

In football for example there are many leagues in which you can decide to bet. Some other variables, such as the weather conditions, the team morale, players’ personal life events or recent injured players are also taken into account when setting the lines..

It is critical to understand betting odds if you want to play them correctly and become a real sports investor. Golf betting can work with decimal odds as well. Decimal odds are usually stating exactly how much money will be gained by a punter from betting one unit. Every sport has a particular betting system

Try this out for yourself for a few days without actually gambling any money. As you can imagine the chances of not a single favorite winning out of the 20 races is very small. In the last 9 months of using this system, I have never witnessed a day where that happened.

Now quit for the day!

To ensure you always choose the favorite of each race, you will need to either open an account on line. Such as or you must go to your local bookies and check the odds in the last 15-10 minutes before a race.

Of course you can check out our system by looking at the previous results to see how good it really is! Just check the results in the national press and you will see that a favorite will win at least 1 race in 1 of the race meetings, every day!

Now follow the most important rule of the day and quit for the day!

This can be worked out by dividing 1 by 2 (2-1 odds) and multiplying it by £98.21.

. remember your in this only to win!)

This can be worked out by dividing 4 by 7 (7-4 odds) and then multiply it by 50 (£50)

If the favorite didn’t win again, simply continue with this method remembering to up your stake to ensure you win back all your losses as well as your targeted winnings until the favorite does win. (Of course it could be just a bank of £100 and your target winnings be £5, it’s up to you and the size of your pocket. He’s flown under the radar for virtually his entire adult life, beating the casinos and stockpiling his winnings. Let’s say the favorite is 7-4. CONGRATULATIONS YOU ARE A WINNER. Locate the favorite for this race, take its odds “to win” and then calculate how much stake you need to put down in order to win £50. Let’s say for the next race, the favorite is at 4-1. Target. If the horse doesn’t win, don’t despair, go on to the next race, but this time in order to be £50 up for the day, you need to win back the 28.57 you lost in the last race plus an additional £50 for your on target winnings. Remembering that in order to be £50 up for the day, you will need to win back the 28.57 you lost in the first race and the 19.64 in the second race, plus the additional £50.

The first step in using this system is to set a value of how much you wish to win each day.

So for this example we say you have a bank of £1000, and therefore require our winnings each day to be £50. This is why it is suggested to only place 5% of your bank.

1. Newspapers do like to give you their suggested favorite; however these will not always be the excepted and agreed favorite. Simply put, if a favourite wins, you win.

The most important rule of this system that you should never break is that once you have reached your goal winnings for that day, YOU QUIT AND WALK AWAY.


This is purely down to you. In the first meeting of the day you currently have a bank of £1000 and you wish to win £50. So to win 78.57 you will need to place a bet of 19.64. In order to win £50.00 you will need to place a bet of £28.57.

This system relies on the fact that in all of the days race meetings that at least 1 favorite will win one of the races. CONGRATULATIONS YOU ARE A WINNER.

If this horse wins; you have now recovered the 28.57 you lost in the first race and the 19.64 in the second plus the additional £50. If the horse doesn’t win, again don’t despair, simply go on to the next race following the same procedure as in 2

The “secret” To Picking Horse Race Winners

There are specialist books and videos on all aspects of the sport. They did not achieve this knowledge overnight but worked hard to acquire it. Many of the most successful horse race gamblers have an almost encyclopaedic knowledge of horses, trainers, courses and all other relevant factors. The key to finding horse race winners is simply knowledge.

Horse racing is a huge subject and it can be difficult if not impossible to be an expert in all aspects. Practically every horse race meeting is covered live on TV with race replays later. They often promise a fast and quick way to wealth beyond my wildest dreams.

So if you work to build up your knowledge of horse racing and perhaps specialise you will have no need to pay for any “secrets”. If this is a secret then it is one of the worst kept in the whole history of secrets. It is even possible to delve deeper and specialise in specific types of race such as 2 year olds, hurdles or sprints.

You will already have the advantage that you need and that is no secret.

Practically everyday I receive a letter or email offering me a horse racing system which is going to make me rich. Therefore it makes sense top specialise in one area such as flat racing, national hunt or all weather racing. Racing has been a popular sport for over 300 years and in all that time no one has discovered an infallible way of picking winners or if they have they are not telling anyone about it. How can they do this? It is because they have discovered a “secret” that no one else knows, (well no one who has not bought their system) that cannot fail to make you wealthy. There has never been a better time to become knowledgeable on the subject of horse racing. It is all there just waiting for anyone to go and access it.

The more you know about horse racing and race horses the more likely you are to find winners on a consistent basis.

. This type of specialisation can give you a distinct advantage over the average punter. Of course you will need to send them some money, often quite a lot of money to discover the “secret”.

Of course as rational people we know there is no such thing as a “secret” method of finding horse race winners.

There is one way that you can improve your chance of finding winners and making your horse race gambling profitable
