Pragmatic Expert Picks: Favorite Casinos

So where do the experts play? We asked several Internet gambling gurus to tell us their favorite online casinos. Here’s how they responded.

Eric Morris, Publisher, Gambling Online Magazine

“I generally have accounts open with all my advertisers and like to support those who support Gambling Online Magazine. If I had to pick 3 that I visit often, I would choose Intercasino , VIPSports, and Gaming Club.”

Bryan Bailey, Publisher,

“This is a difficult question to answer. It’s like, “What’s your favorite movie?” or “What is your favorite meal?” It depends on what mood I’m in or how much extra time I have on my hands. When I am on the go, “Slotland” is my choice since slots are my cup of tea, and it goes well with a red wine. I prefer a Hungarian red wine that I’ve been recently turned on to. It makes my visit to Slotland very nice. Maybe it’s because I play at Slotland at night with the lights turned off. Very aesthetic. I’ve been hanging around Spin Palace, Captain Cooks, and Intercasino a lot. They’ve got some good promos and loyalty programs and their service reps are outstanding. They go well with a medium light Hefe Weissen with the lights turned on during the day.”

“I have a number of favorite casinos, for different reasons.

  1. Captain Cook’s Casino and Casino Kingdom, for their almost-instant email support and selection of games.
  2. All Slots, First Web and Wild Jack casinos for their solid support, fast payment and variety of games.
  3. Casino Atlantis Online, for their superb graphics and multiplayer games. It’s very hard for me to single out one casino with a tremendous selection like this available.”

situs poker online


Boston 5 is a poker based game I noticed at Harrah’s in Las Vegas. The game is owned by New Vision Gaming. Following are the rules, strategy, and house advantage for the game.



Play begins with the player making an ante bet and a “first wager.” The first wager must be exactly double the ante.


There is also an optional 3 card bonus bet. The pay table can vary from casino to casino, see table 1 for one example. The player can not make this bet alone but must play the main game.

Players then receive 3 cards each. Sharing of information between players is not allowed.


If the player made the 3 card bonus bet and has at least a pair then he should show the dealer his cards to receive payment.


After reviewing the first three cards the player must decide to either fold or raise. If the player folds he forfeits his cards and all bets. If the player raises he must make a “second wager” exactly equal to the first wager.


The dealer will then deal each player still in the game two more cards.

Each hand is individually compared to the dealer’s five-card hand, the highest hand wins.

If the player’s hand beats the dealer’s hand then the player shall win even money on the first and second wagers, and the ante shall push.


If the dealer’s hand beats the player’s hand then the player shall lose his first and second wagers and the ante.


If the player’s hand and dealer’s had are exactly equal in value (highly unlikely) the first and second wagers and the ante shall push.


Regardless of whether the player or dealer has the higher hand the player shall be eligible for …

Ronaldo’s 300, Fernandez quits on air, Barça drop QQ Online points

Barcelona and Real Madrid both won in midweek to keep Barca’s lead to four points.


The blaugrana had no trouble dispatching Almeria 4-0 at home, with Lionel Messi bending a 20 yarder into the far corner for a goal much like his strike for Argentina against Iran at the World Cup.


Real won 2-0 across town at Rayo Vallecano with two second-half strikes. Cristiano Ronaldo headed in the opener, his 300th goal for the club and James Rodriguez tapped in a second, but both the Colombian and Toni Kroos picked up bookings and will miss a match having accrued five yellows.


Ronaldo also entered the referee’s notebook for simulation in comical fashion when he had clearly been upended in the box by Rayo’s Antonio Amaya lunging in. The league later overturned the bonkers call.


Daniel Carvajal, Luka Modric, Sergio Ramos & Ronaldo however remain on four bookings, one short of a one-match suspension as the title race enters its final lap.


* Deportivo La Coruna manager Victor Fernandez gave an extraordinarily cathartic QQ Online post-match press conference in the wake of his side’s 1-1 draw with Cordoba, announcing he was sacked.


His side had struggled to overcome the bottom club at the Riazor, equalising with only three minutes to go, and with his team sitting one place and two points above the relegation zone by the end of it, Fernandez confessed his time was up.


The club president, he explained, had telephoned him on Monday to tell him it was win or be fired, and he had not won.


An emotional Fernandez told journalists he felt he had given his best effort and left the stage with immense dignity and respect wholly intact.


* On Saturday, Real coasted to a …

Diaz rolls dice for title Togel Hongkong bout

A visitor to Julio Diaz’s training camp was trying rather delicately to make the point to Diaz that most boxing experts expect him to have a difficult time with Jose Luis Castillo in their lightweight title fight Saturday at Mandalay Bay.


Diaz, though, wasn’t interested in euphemisms or political correctness. He’s heard the whispers and was as blunt as subtle as a punch to the nose.


“Hey,” he said, “they expect him to kill me. I think a lot of people think he might mop the floor with me. I understand that. He’s a big name and I’m just this kid who’s willing to stand up and say, `Heck yeah, I want this chance.’ But I’m crazy enough to think I can win.”


Diaz, 25, gambled Togel Hongkong away a world title for the opportunity, giving up the IBF championship in order to be able to fight Castillo.


Castillo, who is widely regarded as the world’s top lightweight, was slated to fight Las Vegan Diego Corrales, the WBO champion who is regarded as the world’s second-best 135-pounder, on Saturday. But that fight was scuttled by contractual squabbles. Diaz stepped in.


The only problem is he already had signed to defend his belt against Levander Johnson. And though the IBF had indicated to Diaz’s management that it would have granted him an exception to allow him to fight Castillo and retain his belt, he chose to give it up so Johnson could fight for the vacant title.


It was a bold move by a guy who was so lightly regarded just 18 months ago that HBO flatly refused to accept him as an opponent for Floyd Mayweather Jr. Mayweather was scheduled to fight on Nov. 1, 2003, and Top Rank proposed Diaz as the opponent.…

Round The World He Goes: Pengeluaran HK Stephen Constantine, Manager



There are certainly a whole host of coaches that spend their entire careers in their home country, not venturing far and enjoying varying degrees of success. Failing to cross borders however is an entirely foreign concept for Stephen Constantine.


The 47-year-old England-born coach’s resume reads like the itinerary of a fascinating trip to exotic lands, but though he may be something of a football nomad, this is a manager who has enjoyed success wherever he has travelled. A Pengeluaran HK serious knee injury ended Constantine’s playing days quite early (he was 27), yet he was able to transform that disappointment into a positive and make his mark as a top-level manager.


Stephen Constantine.


Having coached four national teams including Nepal, India, Malawi, and Sudan, Constantine’s views on the world’s most popular sport are quite interesting to say the least. Now in Cyprus as boss of APEP FC, Constantine is excited to be back to the daily grind of club coaching, though the club’s current situation is quite difficult as APEP were recently issued a points deduction and have been condemned to relegation to the Cypriot 2nd division for next season.


This has not dampened Constantine’s spirit though. Speaking on his personal website, Constantine stated that he was looking forward to the challenge of rebuilding the team and returning it to the 1st Division.


Though he may have seen it all in his travels coaching football, this is a man who has an unquenchable thirst for the game. He describes himself as a firm believer in constantly improving his knowledge and skill. This desire to learn has helped Constantine succeed and the former Chelsea schoolboy player has made a habit of taking over struggling sides, making them competitive and in some cases winning trophies. …

Robert Togel Pires in Thailand?



Robert Pires is in line for a shock return to football with Thai Premier League champions Muangthong United. The 37-year-old midfielder is currently training with his old team Arsenal after being released by Villarreal.


It appears Pires is unlikely to follow in the footsteps of Sol Campbell, who was given a short term contract by Wenger last season after training with the team on a similar basis. However the former French international is desperate to Togel prolong his playing career and could be tempted by the prospect of joining one of the top teams in South Asia.


Robert Procureur, the General Manager of Muangthong United, is hoping to sign Pires in time for the next season which starts in March,


“I have been searching for new players from Europe to join our squad next season. I knew Robert Pires from when I visited Arsene Wenger a few years ago and I have already discussed with some people from Arsenal the possibility of bringing Pires to the Thai Premier League. At the moment we are interested in and will try hard to convince him to join Muangthong United,” he said.


Muangthong United recently won the Thai Premier League for the second successive season and are also in the final of the Thai FA Cup. They reached the semi finals of the AFC Cup, the Asian equivalent of the Europa League, and are looking to add at least one high profile player to the squad.


The club have also been strongly linked with Dwight Yorke and Jesper Blomqvist but Procureur feels that Pires would be the perfect signing,


“He is 37 years old but I feel he still has the ability to play as last season he was in the Spanish league with Villarreal. …

World Club Judi Onlain Cup Part II



Preparations for this tournament were somewhat easier than my last visit two years ago. The FIFA website allowed me to purchase tickets, saving me the problems I faced last time when I arrived unsure of how to obtain them, they even said they would deliver the tickets to my home address before the tournament started . If you have followed my travels you will know that collecting the tickets is never straightforward and, sure enough, a week before the Judi Onlain competition I received an email asking me to collect my tickets in Abu Dhabi.


I am due to arrive at lunch time on the day the competition starts with the first game kicking off at 8 p.m. Last time I would have been in danger of not being able to get in due to the fans arriving hours before the kick off. Surely this time with it being a FIFA event and the fact that I have officially paid for a ticket there will be no such problem. We’ll see.


The U.A.E. comes to a halt for two weeks whilst the championship takes place, however I have spotted that there are some Cup competitions taking place whilst I am there, and so I have been scouring the web to find out more.


Studying the websites of the clubs it was interesting to find that supporters were awarded free away trips with their clubs by entering poetry competitions.


Unfortunately the poems were in Arabic and so I was unable to translate them.


Mmm. So maybe they went like this.

Referee dominates Kansai’s clash of the Toto Hk Koreans



The Kansai derby between Kyoto Sanga and Gamba Osaka may have featured an intriguing clash of Koreans at Nishikyogoku Stadium on Sunday, but referee Nobutsugu Murakami stole the show with a performance that had Gamba coach Akira Nishino spitting chips.


“No J. League match should ever be refereed the way it was,” an exasperated Nishino claimed – after seeing his side earn five yellow cards and concede a dubious penalty against their regional rivals.


Murakami’s performance overshadowed a clash of the K-League stars, as former Suwon Bluewings defender Lee Jung-Soo lined up for Kyoto against Gamba defender Park Dong-Hyuk – once of Ulsan Hyundai  – and former Jeonbuk Toto Hk Motors striker Cho Jae-Jin.


It was Lee Jung-Soo who came out on top, and he opened the scoring with a thunderous header in first half stoppage time, after Kyoto striker Paulinho had been stretchered from the field early on – following some hefty treatment from Park Dong-Hyuk and co.


Kyoto were aided by a contentious penalty decision ten minutes after the restart, as Gamba keeper Yosuke Fujigaya was adjudged to have brought down veteran striker Atsushi Yanagisawa.


Brazilian playmaker Diego kept his cool to beat Fujigaya from the spot, and substitute Shinichi Terada’s late strike – which ironically took a hefty deflection off Lee Jung-Soo – came too late for reigning Asian champions Gamba.


In the other Sunday games, Japan international Shinzo Koroki came off the bench to score a late winner for Kashima Antlers in their hard-fought 2-1 win over last season’s J2 champions Sanfrecce Hiroshima.


Nagoya Grampus thumped Tokai rivals Shimizu S-Pulse 3-1 – with Brazilian striker Davi scoring twice – while JEF United held highly fancied Kawasaki Frontale to a 1-1 draw in Chiba.

We have to stop the Blubber Ring in Bandar Poker Online



Call me a non-conforming malcontent, but I wholeheartedly disagree with the concept of marriage. When at Alton Towers, I absolutely love it on the log flume, but after a few rides, I should be free to have a go on the black hole.


It’s a statistical fact that if a couple of a similar age marry, the male has the shorter life expectancy. I haven’t read up on the reason behind this, but my hunch would be the ‘until death do us part’ line in the ceremony.


There are occasionally extenuating circumstances for staying with the same partner for a significant number of years, but there aren’t that many blonde, mute, orphaned, former gymnast cleaners wandering the streets.


Steven Gerrard, Michael Carrick, John Terry and Gary Neville are all making a huge rick by taking their partners up the aisle this weekend. I don’t wish to scaremonger, but if my marriage is anything to go by, the bride’s libido is replaced by an appetite for cake the moment the ring makes contact with the finger.


Gary Neville would love for David Beckham to show up on his big day, but Becks will be busy training for Real Madrid’s title decider. Few would argue with the fact that Beckham deserves a Bandar Poker Online medal; if only for his quick thinking in getting out of the Neville do. The slow-witted bint-beaten former golden boy of English football will finally get his hands on something other than Rebecca Loos; Real Madrid are absolute bankers at 2/13 at home to Mallorca.


Steven Gerrard’s marriage to orange pancake-eater Alex Curran will undoubtedly be the glitziest affair. The couple originally wanted Gary Barlow to perform at the reception, but decided to go for a more upmarket feel and …


Welcome To Our Dominoqq World



The Socceroos will participate at next year’s World Cup finals for the first time in eight attempts. And what’s more they thoroughly deserve to. Marc Fox reports.


Football Federation Australia will be feeling rightly proud of themselves this week after witnessing Australia’s greatest international triumph since Jimmy Mackay volleyed home a spectacular winner to ensure the Socceroos’ progression to Germany 1974. 32 years on, the similarities between the current crop of internationals and Mackay’s are eerie.


Back in ’73, Australia drew the home-and-away playoff series against South Korea before squeezing home in the deciding third fixture in neutral Hong Kong. The latest group to attempt what coach Guus Hiddink described as “making the impossible possible” four short months ago advanced in similar circumstances. Scores level on Dominoqq aggregate after 180, then 210 minutes, before penalties decided the outcome. The destination for its second-ever finals appearance: Germany.


Despite entering next year’s showpiece tournament as the second lowest rankest nation after Angola, with Hiddink at the helm today’s Australia will have the conviction to improve on the solitary point its predecessors managed in ’74. Back then, the Socceroos were mocked on their arrival in Europe having been cruelly drawn alongside East and West Germany as well as Chile in Group 1. How times change. If, as expected, the side is handed the unenviable label of bottom seeds when the World Cup draw is made on December 9, plenty will be keen to avoid the competitive Antipodeans.


For football officials in Australia, qualifying for Germany 2006 is the icing on an already delicious cake. After decades of disillusionment, what a way to bid farewell to its love-hate relationship with the Oceania confederation. To all intents and purposes, the Socceroos are now Asian. They leave the derisory half-place …
