Bovada Ups the Ante For Poker Players – Introduces Innovative Welcome Bonus

One of the most popular online gaming sites where people can play poker online is Poker.bovada.lv. Bovada, which has been making waves in the gaming community mainly due to their wide selection of casino games and the strength of their well-respected sports betting platform. Another reason that this site has enjoyed such a large amount of awareness among online gaming patrons is due to the fact that Bovada is among one of the only legal online casinos that can be joined by both Americans and Canadians. The company has recently made headlines yet again; this time offering an impressive one hundred per cent signup bonus for all new members.

One of the significant aspects of this bonus is that it will match any deposit up to one thousand dollars by one hundred per cent. This is notably different from many other sites that only offer partial matched bonus amounts. Bovada has caught the eye of the online casino community as representing one of the most generous platforms currently on the market. While Bovada was already considered by many to represent some of the best poker online gaming available, this offer has certainly increased their reputation substantially.

The mechanics of the bonus are quite simple. A player will first need to register through Bovada. After registration is complete, he or she will then be able to deposit cash directly into their account. Another interesting feature of this bonus is that it will include anyfunds that are deposited within the first twenty-four hours of opening a new account. So, a player can choose to deposit four hundred dollars and should he or she wish to deposit an additional four hundred, Bovada will match both amounts by one hundred percent. Therefore, the player has already doubled their money before even entering an online poker room.

Another aspect that will surely catch the public’s eye is that players will also be able to earn valuable poker points with each dollar that is matched. These points can be used towards ongoing promotions, lucrative competitions, prizes and tournaments. Obviously, the amount of points directly correlates with the amount deposited; the larger the amount, the more points earned. In this respect, Bovada has invented quite a unique system that will help players increase their chances of winning these points.

Simply stated, the more one plays, the more that one will earn. As the bonus will be valid for the first sixty days of game play, participants will have the chance to accrue up to a staggering five thousand bonus points during this period. This is, of course, associated with the maximum matched bonus of one thousand dollars. Players should also be aware that for every dollar matched, he or she will receive five bonus points.

The bonus issued will relate to achieving certain “levels” of poker points and this is based on a graduated scale. For instance, when a player garners fifty poker points, a bonus of ten dollars is issued and credited to the account the very next day. When one reaches two hundred and fifty points, an impressive forty dollars will be issued. On the top end of the scale, if one succeeds in gaining five thousand poker points, a massive one thousand dollars will be directly credited to the account. The end result is an unheard of gaming experience that has become the hallmark of Bovada Poker. Further details and an easy to understand chart of what the Bovada signup bonus entails can be found on their easy-to-use and highly navigable site. These bonuses can be thought of as giving all participants the ability to play free poker and yet still earn cash prizes.

While to play poker online in the US is still a rather new concept for avid gamers, the popularity of Bovada may indeed signal a paradigm shift in the online gaming policies currently espoused by the government. Some analysts believe that the popularity of Bovada illustrates the fact that more such sites should be made available to Americans. So, the day may very well come when similar opportunities are offered by additional companies. Until then, fans can enjoy playing free online poker games and the chances of winning valuable bonuses should they wish to up the ante and play for money. Either way, it truly appears that Bovada is paving the way within the online poker community, offering innovative new products such as Zone Poker and interesting promotions such as this one which keep their ever-growing fan base coming back for more.

45% of Online Casinos Not Licensed in UK ‘Safe’ Jurisdictions

With players creating around 5 million new casino and online gambling accounts each year, the public remain unaware of risks associated with insufficient licensing and regulation.

The UK Gambling Commission maintains a ‘whitelist’ of countries which provide satisfactory regulation for online gaming licenses. If a casino does not have a license from one of these whitelisted jurisdictions then it is not allowed to advertise within the UK – but that does not prevent UK citizens from finding and joining these potentially risky sites.

Over 1,100 online gaming sites operate with licenses issued by whitelisted jurisdictions. This includes licenses from locations such as Gibraltar, Malta and Alderney, all of which the UK Gambling Commission considers to have sufficient regulation for player protection.

Over 900 casino and wagering sites, around 45% of the total, continue to hold licenses issued outside of the safe jurisdictions whitelisted by the Commission. These jurisdictions tend to have insufficient regulation, and lack satisfactory methods for mediation and resolution of players’ problems. Countless gambling sites are also operating with absolutely no license and a complete lack of regulation.

One newly launched website – www.Top20CasinoReviews.co.uk – aims to help UK players discover the safest online gaming sites.

“People usually have no idea if a casino has a license from a country approved by the UK Gambling Commission,” said Philip Jones, manager of Top 20 Casino Reviews UK. “With literally thousands of casino websites available to UK players, the new resource is dedicated to providing players with only the most reliable licensed casino information.”

The new site also allows players to view the top casinos in a variety of categories including casinos for mobile phones, sites offering live dealers via online video, and casinos accepting popular payment options such as PayPal and Ukash.

In addition to reviewing licensed casinos, the parent site at www.UKZap.com provides a full range of bingo, poker and sports betting reviews, as well as the Lucky Friends social site offering member prizes and free advice for players.

Learn How To Play Rainbow Riches With A Fantastic New Site

WagerWorks have really managed to get the formula right with both of their fantastic Rainbow Riches slot games. Pots of Gold, the first slot in this series was an absolute stormer in both the online and land based casinos, with Win Big Shindig following shortly after to offer players a chance at the bigger prizes. Not everyone in the gambling world is totally familiar with these Irish themed slot games and how to play their reels. However help is at hand for these uninitiated and amateur players in the form of a new Rainbow Riches strategy site.

Learn How To Play Rainbow Riches With A Fantastic New Site

Site editor, Catherine Van Bommel told us “punters are always looking for anything that can give them an edge on these great slot games.

Virgin Holds The Gold At The End Of The Rainbow Riches

The team at Rainbow Riches Slot had another exciting week down at Slots towers, the emphasis was on testing the operators featured on the site to ensure they were all worthy of their site positioning. They pulled on their back packs, stuck some Stone Roses on the iPod and off they trotted to see if they could find a Pot of Gold at the end of the rainbow, hoping they might be able to eat from Tesco this week instead of Farm Foods.

Site Author Blake explains, “Once we’d managed to get out of the bedroom we noticed that there was a glass of water sitting on the dinner table in front of the bay window in our living room. The sun was catching the tumbler in such a way as to cast a spectrum of rainbow coloured light across the desk in the corner, where the laptop sat. Was this a message from the great Leprechaun himself? Had we been blessed with a rainbow at this early stage in our quest as some kind of indicator that our Pot of Gold could be hiding somewhere in the laptop? Our thoughts started racing and one of our task team suggest that this could be some kind of sign”

The Rainbow Riches Slot team has various authors including Blake, all specialising in the Online gaming fraternity, the site is written by online slots fans for Slots fans, which certainly helps to give any budding player an impartial view of the overall playing experience.

Blake Continues “So, without further ado we fired up the beloved laptop with its sticky keys and its vile touch pad mouse, and waited for Windows to load. We quickly sparked up good old Internet Explorer, typed in our URL “Rainbowrichesslot.com” and within seconds our homepage, had loaded up. We looked on the site and saw the featured Casino is Virgin with an enticing opening free deposit bonus of £100. We didn’t need any more persuasion and we were soon pulling out our credit cards from our wallets, as we were all desperate to cash in on this obviously fortuitous scene.

After making a minimum deposit with the Virgin Casino we were off to play our favourite Rainbow Riches slot, Rainbow Riches Wing Big Shindig. So there we were, sitting at the game and we made our first spin. Three spins in and still no win and the murmurs of discontent amongst the team were becoming an audible groan, morale had reached such a low point that we thought we might not be able to continue on. Someone somehow managed to pull out a weary hand and crawled it, finger by finger across the desk to use their last iota of hope to hit the mouse button and activate the spin. With disbelieving eyes we watched as three Leprechauns hit on the pay line and took us into the Pots of Luck bonus round.

We won’t bore you with details of quite how much we won but needless to say we weren’t eating just shamrocks and lucky charms for dinner that evening. The next morning we called up our editor”, CM Jones and told her the story of our day. She said:

“It’s no surprise you guys had such a good time playing Rainbow Riches with the guys down at Virgin Slots. The player experience is truly fantastic and this simply epitomises the whole Virgin philosophy, it’s simply no wonder why we have them as our featured number one casino on our site, we have even teamed up with Virgin Casino to offer our players a chance of an extra £200 in their pocket each month.”

Big Bingo Winner gets £1.16 Million Jackpot!

Mr Frankie Lowell was relaxing in front of the television when the telephone rang. He thought it was somebody trying to sell him something so he left it for a few minutes before answering. The ringing was persistent and when he could no longer ignore it he picked it up. “Yes?” he snapped gruffly into the mouthpiece.

It was his wife Soraya. She had been out with her friend and neighbour Agnes O’Neill for an evening of fun at the local Bingo parlour in Coatbridge in Lanarkshire. They had decided to play the National Bingo Game. This is a game that is networked across several hundred Bingo clubs. A central computer controls the game and the calls are relayed to each participating club simultaneously. It is a very popular way of playingBingo not least because the prizes can be very high and there are several big jackpot games. One of these jackpots is called the Platinum Jackpot and as the name suggests it is a large one. The Platinum Jackpot is a rollover jackpot that was inspired by the National Lottery in order to offer prizes of over £1 million.

Soraya just needed the number 90, and it was called. Quick as a flash she called house and the prize, all £1,167,796 of it, was hers.

Soraya tried to tell her husband about the win over the phone but there was so much commotion and excitement that he did not completely understand what she was saying, and when he did make out what she was telling him he thought it was a wind up. He passed the phone over to the couples daughter who listened to the story and found out that it was a fact that her mum had won. “It’s true dad” she said.

Soraya said that she would share the prize with Agnes, her long time friend. Despite winning so much money Soraya only took a few days off work before going back to work as a cleaner. The bingo win will certainly make a big difference to her and her family and to Agnes as well.

All You Want To Know About Treasureonnet’s Exciting Online Scratch Cards

Scratch cards, which are also known as scratch offs or scratch tickets, are small tokens or cards, usually made of cardboard with one or more areas containing hidden information concealed by a substance which cannot be seen through but is only revealed by being scratched off. Scratch cards are mainly used to conceal prizes in instant win games but can also be used to conceal Personal Identification Numbers for telephone calling cards and other prepaid services. Simple scratch cards require players to match a number, often three, of the same prize amounts and if they accomplish this, they win prizes while more sophisticated scratch cards have several different ways of winning on one card.

The first scratch card game tickets were created using manual randomization techniques and in 1974, an American company produced the first computer generated instant win lottery game. Three years later, in 1987, a Rhode Island company received a U.S. patent for an instant scratch-off lottery ticket. Due to their low cost and opportunities for an instant win as opposed to having to wait for a lottery draw, scratch cards are an immensely popular form of games of chance. Scratch cards actually offer much better odds of winning easy money than the regular lottery and although the sums may be smaller than lottery prizes, any sum of easy money won while playing scratch cards is guaranteed whereas with lottery prizes, the sum normally depends on the total number of winners and the size of the jackpot fund.

Online scratch cards are the Internet version of the lottery scratch cards bought in shops and are played by clicking on a designated area to reveal information that is then used to determine the prize value of the scratch card. Online scratch cards tend to offer better odds for winning easy money than their shop-based counterparts. Online scratch cards can be played from the comfort of the player’s own home, at any time day or night and the player knows immediately whether they have won instant cash without having to wait for a weekly draw.

TreasureOnNet offers seven online scratch card games and games of chances which don’t require any software to be downloaded and therefore can be played as soon as the player registers. TreasureOnNet games are very easy to play and offer the player great odds of winning an instant win prize in every game.

TreasureOnNet.com is an online gaming site dedicated to scratch card style games. TON uses a software package that is unique in its gaming niche, and which ensures absolutely fair play on every scratch card.

How TON Scratch Cards Work, What Is The Minimum And Maximum Sum And How To Win On TON

The phenomenon of online scratch cards has grown enormously in the past few years with more and more games becoming available. Although TreasureOnNet‘s games are very simple and easy to play, it is still important to know what the minimum and maximum amounts you can bet are, how much this means you can win and how to win.

Obviously, the more money you bet, the higher your winnings will be. While all of TreasureOnNet‘s scratch card and guess screen games have different odds, the amount you can bet is the same for all of the games. The minimum ticket price for the scratch card games is $1 while the maximum ticket price is $10 with the tickets in-between going up in increments of $2. Depending on the game, winnings for a $1 bet vary between $0.25 for finding one treasure chest and between $20 and $300 according to each individual game and whether the maximum number of treasure chests is 3 or 4. As its name suggests, among the scratch card games, Huge Treasure offers the highest winnings with the impressive easy cash sum of $3000 for finding all 4 treasure chests.

Among the guess screen games, the ticket prices also range between $1 and $10 with the maximum amount of potential winnings ranging from $0.25 for finding one treasure chest on a $1 bet to $2.5 for a $10 bet. If you are lucky enough to find all 3 or 4 treasure chests, depending on the game, your easy cash winnings will be a minimum of $20 for a $1 bet to a maximum of $3000 for a $10 bet. Among the guess screen games, Magnificent Prize appropriately offers the best winnings, closely followed by Step by Step which is the hardest of the games.

TreasureOnNet offers its players total responsibility for choosing the amount of the bet and the subsequent potential sum of winnings. While we can’t make it too easy for the players to win money as that would spoil the fun, there are always a few things to do to increase the chances of taking home a big instant win. Before playing for real cash, it is worth reading the rules of each game and playing at least once for fun as the more you understand the game, the greater your chances of winning real money are and the more exciting the game is.

The award-winning 32Red Online Casino is set to launch its first television advert and new player welcome bonus this December

32Red Online Casino, winner of five successive Best Casino awards and part of 32Red Plc, has announced the imminent release of their first television advert this December. To be aired across many of UK’s biggest television channels, the TV advert will emphasise the company’s renowned player support, casino games, awards and its new player welcome bonus.

The current advert is the company’s second on television this year, with 32Red Bingo featuring regularly on Channel 5 and E4, but this is 32Red’s first casino advert on television and marks a significant shift in advertising following their sponsorship of English Premiership football club, Aston Villa.

To celebrate, 32Red Online Casino will be offering new players an alternative sign-up offer, allowing them the choice of either a 100% deposit match bonus of up to £250 – part of the six offers in the 6 Pack Welcome Bonus – or £32 free for depositing £10. Mark Quayle, Head of Marketing for 32Red, was quoted as saying, “Our two welcome bonuses mean we can offer amazing generosity to all types of new players, whether they just want maximum value whilst starting at 32Red or the long lasting appeal of the 6 Pack Welcome Bonus.”

Accompanying the TV advert and new welcome bonus are 4 new online casino games this January, including the new guaranteed £1 million jackpot slot machine Mega Moolah 5 Reel Drive. Other games include Polar Pioneers, Liquid Gold and Joker Poker Level Up, to which Quayle added, “Our new games ensure both new and old players have even more to enjoy at 32Red in the New Year.”

The Dash double winner, Kelly Merlo from Canada, logged into the Casino on the morning of the 17th June to play the progressive slot machine, Lot’s of Loot. After just a few spins, Kelly lined up the game’s logos across the reels and won her first jackpot. Her second big win came just five months later, when she hot the Lot’s of Loot jackpot again on the 20th November 2008.

Ms. Merlo’s winning streak prompted Stephen Macdonald, Dash Casino Manager, to say: “We get many big winners at Dash but rarely two big jackpots from the same player on the same machine. We’re delighted for Kelly and the whole Dash team has passed our congratulations onto her.”

Kelly was amazed at her second jackpot win at Dash Casino“I have, for the second time, just won the Lot’s of Loot Jackpot and am in total awe,” she said, before adding:”Dash has by far the most outstanding support/management staff, hands down.”

Two Large Jackpot Wins In Just One Month For One Lucky Player At 32Red Online Casino

32Red has announced that one of its players claimed a second large jackpot win from the same slot machine in under a month. The lucky player has taken home a total of £37,864.09 in just 17 days and becomes one of the online casino’s luckiest customers.

With a history of big winners, 32Red can demonstrate a series of large payouts that include a £1,094,112.81 win on Major Millions, which was one of the biggest payouts ever recorded at an online casino, and £1,000,641 on King Cashalot. Both of these wins came from one of 32Red’s 150+ slot machines and represent just two of twelve jackpot games available at 32Red, including Mega Moolah – the jackpot to which currently stands at over £4,500,000.

Remarkably, these latest jackpots all came from the same slot machine, Cash Splash. The casino reports the probability of this happening as very low, with Ed Ware, 32Red CEO, remarking “Although large jackpot wins are quite common at 32Red, the chances of the same player winning the jackpot from the same game twice in a month are both staggering and wonderful.”

The player from Dorset logged in as normal on the 9th October and loaded the Cash Splash progressive online slot game, triggering the jackpot of £22,949.09 shortly after. He then logged in again on the 26th October and won a further £14,915, making a total payout of £37,864.09 for him in October. Ware said, “This series of big wins couldn’t come at a better time too, with another winner at 32Red well and truly beating the credit crunch in October and lining up a very special Christmas”.

The Cash Splash progressive slot is available to play in two forms – as a 3 reel, single payline slot and a 5 reel, 15 payline machine. The jackpot is triggered by the game’s logo symbol falling across the reels on the selected payline. When this happens the displayed jackpot total within the game is the figure won by the player. This amount varies and is connected to how much the game is played, with a fraction added to the jackpot every time the reels are spun. After the player’s second win, the jackpot was reset and now stands at over £11,500, prompting Ware to ask, “Can this same player make it 3 wins in short succession? Either way it has to be his luckiest autumn and we wish him the best of luck in the future”.

Vernons Pools Has Announced That The Uks Biggest Ever Online Slot Machine Jackpot Is Set To Be Paid Out

Vernons Pools, a leading UK online gaming company, has seen a tenfold increase in online slots players over the last six months, with the growth in players driving the jackpot of its ‘Clover Rollover’ slot game past the £1.2 million mark – making it one of the biggest online slot machine jackpots in the world.

The jackpot has grown by £250,000 a month since April this year, even increasing at a rate of £10,000 a day on occasions, as online gamers clamour to line up five shamrocks to claim the top prize.

It’s not the only online slot game promising mammoth jackpots, as another Vernons‘ game, Cleopatra’s Chest has already passed the £250,000 mark, with total jackpots across seven games reaching £1.8 million and rising.

Recent research into online gaming trends reveals that currently 62 per cent of online slot machine players are female, with the game proving particularly popular with players aged between 35-50. As the number of overall online gamers and levels of spending continues to buck the economic trend, it has been slots that have seen the biggest jump in popularity, being simple to play and offering higher chances to win than many other popular games.

Martin Williams, e-gaming manager for Vernons.co.uk, said: “It seems that there’s no limit to the size of jackpots that can be won on online slots. Having our Clover Rolloverjackpot rise by up to £10,000 a day is simply staggering, and demonstrates the growth of the online slot machine phenomenon across the UK.”

About Vernons Pools:
Sportech Plc, owners of The New Football Pools, operates one of the UK’s oldest established football gaming companies, providing football pools, sports betting, lotteries and competitions to over 700,000 regular players.
