The following list indicates which software brand offers the best rules for the most popular games. Brands of software considered are Boss Media, Cryptologic, Microgaming, Real Time Gaming, World Gaming (Starnet), and Unified Gaming.

The criterion for judging is the lowest house edge among all bets. For example, when judging baccarat I only considered the banker bet, which is the best bet on the table. In the event of a tie on the best bet, as was the case in craps, the second best bet was used to break the tie.

Sometimes operators are allowed to set their own rules to some games. For purposes of this article, I used what I found to be the most common, or default rules. All house edge figures used are based on basic or optimal strategy.

Baccarat: Boss Media, Microgaming, World Gaming (tie)

All of these brands offer single-deck baccarat, with a house edge on the banker bet of 1.0117%. Note that the house edge is higher on the player and tie bets on the single-deck game as opposed to a shoe.

Blackjack: Unified Gaming

Unified Gaming has a single deck Togel game, the dealer stands on a soft 17, the player can double on any two cards, double after splitting is allowed, full no-peek, and resplitting is allowed. The player edge is 0.16%.

Caribbean Stud Poker: Microgaming

Microgaming offers a more generous pay table than the usual one, lowering the house edge from 5.22% to 5.01%.

Casino War: World Gaming

In the event of a tie after going to war, World Gaming pays 3:1 on the total amount bet, cutting the house edge to a mere 0.66%.

Craps: Boss Media

Boss Media allows 3X odds, always based on the amount bet. Their closest competition allows 2X odds. Although Unified Gaming only allows 2X odds the player may lay odds relative to the amount the player can win, unlike Boss Media.

Coincidentally, this makes the combined house edge on the Don’t Pass side equal between Boss Media and Unified Gaming. However, the 3X odds make the combined house edge on the Pass side lower in the Boss Media game.

Deuces Wild: Unified Gaming

The Unified Gaming pay table returns 98.91%. Note that Casino Merlin (Real Time Gaming) has full pay deuces wild (return of 100.77%), but this is an exception to the usual Real Time Gaming pay table.

Jacks or Better: Microgaming, Real Time Gaming, Playtech (tie)

All offer full pay on jacks or better with a return of 99.54%.

Joker Poker: Real Time Gaming

The Real Time Gaming pay table returns 100.18%. Note that this game involves a sequel royal jackpot.

Keno: Microgaming

The best return on keno is Microgaming’s pick 13, with a return of 96.54%.

Let it Ride: World Gaming, Cryptologic, and Real Time Gaming (tie)

All three of these brands follow the usual rules.

Pai Gow Poker: Unified Gaming

Only Unified Gaming allows player banking (every other turn).

Red Dog: Cryptologic

The greater the number of decks, the better the odds are for the player. Cryptologic uses 8 decks for a house edge of 2.75%.

Roulette: Cryptologic

Cryptologic follows the Atlantic City rule of giving half back on even money bets if the ball lands in zero. This is slightly better than a single zero wheel, which can be found with Microgaming, Playtech, and Real Time Gaming, but only on the even money bets. If you must play anything other than red, black, odd, even, 1-18, and 19-36 then you should opt for a single zero wheel.

Sic Bo: Microgaming

Microgaming offers slightly better odds on some of the sucker bets. The best bet is still on the high and low, which pays even money.

Three Card Poker: Real Time Gaming

Real Time Gaming is the only brand of online casino software that I know of to offer Three Card Poker. They call it Tri-Card Poker and have stingier pay tables than the normal games. Their house edge on the ante & play bet is 3.83% and on the pairplus bet is 3.49%.

It’s the ultimate spirit of Freedom of Speech. With “handles” like Spearmaster, Hitmob, Zrapture and Prosperity thousands of online gamblers communicate daily on the phenomenon we call the internet, making this uniquely fast network a major resource for experienced and “newbie” players alike.

About to have a crack at online gambling for the first time but not sure where to go? A few visits to a good message board will soon tell you who are the good, the bad and the downright ugly.

Or perhaps you feel you’ve been ripped off and want to warn others and have a good rant. These are the places where you can do it fast and effectively, reaching enormous interested audiences.

It is estimated that for every active message board poster there are as many as ten “lurkers” – bystanders who prefer to remain passively on the fringes and “listen”. And indeed that is exactly what a newcomer to this fascinating world should do before posting – lurk.

To do otherwise is to invite disaster. If you haven’t studied the different personalities and topics being discussed before you jump in with an opinion you can make a fool of yourself. You might find yourself at the unhappy center of an unequal debate or worse still receive an unmerciful flaming – a literal roasting from opponents who will not mince their words.

A cardinal sin is to “spam” message boards, which is the online equivalent of thrusting yourself into a private conversation and yelling a sales message at everyone around you before darting away. Do that and you will almost certainly get more flak than clients.

Another great way to win friends and influence message board people is to pretend you are a satisfied player and extol the fictitious virtues of your operation. That adds dishonesty to your boorishness and really does put you beyond the pale.

Despite these fundamental and unwritten rules, the spammers keep on coming, motivated by referral rewards from their employers. With enticing names like Honey, Ginger and Satisfied you’ll see them relentlessly strafing the boards with tirelessly gushing and patently false claims. Very few of these folks are rocket scientists and it shows in the lack of subtlety in their labors. Capitals and exclamation points – the internet version of shouting – abound in their postings and you will always find a url to speed you to their vision of gambler’s paradise.

Some Boards try to stop these unwanted intrusions by providing spammers with a section where they can extol the virtues of their casinos, agencies or information sites. If the members are interested in the bonuses and other blandishments on offer they will visit that section and read Satisfied, Ginger or Honey’s canned meat.

But that is the downside. Message boards are more generally friendly places once you have announced yourself and start participating. They are a bottomless well of experience and information because they represent the pooled knowledge of a diverse group of people with a shared passion – online gambling.

Here you will find whizz kids and senior citizens; salesmen and professors; casino operators and players – men and women exchanging mirth, views and information on everything to do with wagering that you can imagine. Someone asks “Do you know anything about XYZ casino”, and the responses fly. “Don’t touch ’em” or “These guys are straight and pay fast”

Note that last phrase, operators – it is probably the player’s most important criteria in judging you – are you fair and do you pay your Togel Hongkong winners and pay ’em fast?


Message Boards are both a powerful referral base and a forum. Genuine operators, consultants, information sites and even gambling software makers are welcome to debate issues and present wider perspectives. They can build bridges and discover pure gold in the opinions and needs of the people who make it all happen. The players.

Yet you would be astonished at how many are blind to this outstanding resource. And they are paying a price for a lack of awareness which goes beyond ignorance.

In recent months controversy raged across many Boards on the internet over a dishonest casino and its software supplier. It was a golden opportunity for both organisations to put across their side of the story and find common ground with thousands of players, and yet they inexplicably let it slip through their fingers. Sadly, they suffered serious injury to their reputations which will not easily be retrieved.

I advise my clients never to underestimate the value of internet forums as both a true sounding board and an honest channel of communication.

But there’s an obligation on you, whether you are a player or anyone else.

Don’t abuse the hospitality of the Board and always be prepared to hear out the other person.




Craven Cottage, London

After a month’s rain in 48 hours, the heavens have mercifully held off before Nigeria grapple with Scotland in their World Cup warm-up match here in London.

Stephen Keshi will be looking to audition several potential members of his final squad in the first of three friendlies before they tackle Argentina, Bosnia-Herzegovina and Iran in Brazil, while Gordon Strachan is planning his assault on Euro 2016 and Scotland’s first qualifier, a tall test away to Germany this autumn.

A contrast in styles should be useful preparation for Nigeria’s Brazilian adventure, while Scotland manager Strachan is also hoping to benefit from the 90 minutes, explaining, “A good team is a good team.”

The supporters have wended their way along the river Thames through the tranquility of the historic Bishops Park.

Outside on the Hammersmith  pkv games online Road, the hum of Nigerian drums and the roar of their trumpets mixed with the bagpipes and good-natured singing of the Tartan Army. We are all set for a fascinating friendly.

Nigeria: Ejide, Yobo, Echiejile, Obi, Egwuekwe, Odunlami, Uzoenyi, Ameobi, Uchebo, Gabriel, Babatunde.

Scotland: McGregor, Hutton, Robertson, Greer, Hanley, Morrison, Mulgrew, Brown, Naismith, Maloney, Anya.

Falcao & Suarez risk World Cup KO

Will the first World Cup in South America since 1978 be missing South America’s top marksmen?

News that Luis Suarez has had emergency meniscus surgery was shocking, given that the recovery time is between three and ten weeks. Images of the Uruguayan star being carried out of hospital in a wheelchair so close to the World Cup was painful viewing for soccer fans worldwide.

While Suarez and the Uruguayan F.A. are insisting he will be ready to play in Brazil, the fear is that even if he does, he will not be the almost unstoppable goalscorer he has been in the Premier League this season.

Even England, Italy and Costa Rica, who have been agonising about how to stop Suarez in the first round in Group D, will feel his absence would diminish the competition.

If it is the World Cup, we want to see the world’s hottest players there, and no striker is hotter right now than Suarez, whose 31 league goals for Liverpool bagged him both the PFA and Football Writers’ Player of the Season award.


Colombia’s El Tigre Radamel Falcao also risks missing the big show, having been out of action since January after tearing knee ligaments playing for Monaco in a French cup tie. Last summer Falcao was Europe’s most sought after striker and with nine goals in 13 qualifiers, he bears his World Cup hopes on his shoulders.

Falcao posted an Instagram of himself on the 13th of May, boasting of running 9.4km and swimming 1.5km as he battles to make the 2nd of June deadline for Jose Pekerman’s 23-man squad.

Los Cafeteros were given a send-off in Bogota on Friday night in front of 30,000 fans at El Campin stadium. Next they fly to Buenos Aires, where they take on Senegal on the 31st of May and Jordan on the 6th of June in friendly action before going to their base in Cotia on the outskirts of Sao Paolo. Falcao, for now, remains in Spain continuing to recuperate.

For the sake of the tournament, let us hope they both win their races against time.



If there’s anything better than having a casino near your home, I’d imagine a nice casino, in a sunny beach resort, with the excitement of gambling at your doorstep, and a pina colada or mai tai in your hand as you stroll on the beach. The Sands of the Caribbean, one of the oldest casinos on the Net, tries to recreate this exact scenario.

The Sands is a Cryptologic casino – the first one reviewed on Got2Bet – and surely, based purely on longevity, a very popular and prominent casino. Its recently upgraded software, version 4.0, gave this grand old dame of online gambling a newer, more sophisticated look and increased enjoyment for players.

So it was my turn to take a look at the Sands – as well as review the latest version of Cryptologic software. In doing so, I also enlisted the help of a friend who, while expert at gambling and video poker, had never played at a real online casino before.

The first thing one notices is high-quality graphic designs – certainly distinguishing them from many of the smaller providers out there, and easily on a level with casinos manufactured by Boss Media or Microgaming. On top of that, they have a wide selection of games, more than any manufacturer except Microgaming. And their recent addition of a number of progressive slots, video poker, and caribbean stud games truly brings the same excitement one can find at a land-based casino.

Those of you who are experienced Judi Bola casino gamblers may note some slight differences in the games here – for example, the spinning of the slot reels does not feel the same as in real casinos, and you may find a few extra clicks of the mouse where a simple push of a button or two would have achieved the same result at a game like video poker.

But that does not detract from the entertainment value and very real chance of winning a jackpot or two. I don’t doubt for a minute that a big winner would be every bit as excited as someone who hit a jackpot in Vegas – and sometimes the pots are even higher online.

Banking is handled by Cryptologic’s in-house subsidiary, whose e-cash security and reliability are well-known through other industries as well as the online gambling industry. You will require a PIN number in order to cash out, however, and that will take around a week if you live in North America.

The Sands, in its long history, has had few, if any, complaints that I have come across – and its ties to the WWTS sportsbook and Casino Games undoubtedly help to enhance the honesty and reliability of the people behind this well-established operation. Unlike other casinos where I would do a lot of research before making a deposit, at the Sands you have absolutely zero to worry about.

So go make that pina colada, grab a few snacks, and settle down in front of the computer – you’re going to enjoy this casino, and you might as well make the experience as realistic as possible!

Leicester City are clear at the top of the Premiership and beginning to dream of an improbable title. The favorites remain Manchester City in second place who The Foxes face at the Etihad in the big game this weekend with Spurs and Arsenal also still in the race.


In the chasing pack, Manchester United, who are now fifth, take on Guus Hiddink’s Chelsea in a Sunday game at Stamford Bridge, in a match they must win to have any chance of reigniting any fading hopes of challenging for the title themselves for which they are now placed at 33/1 with the bookies.

Soccer – Hazard handled with care


Head coach Guus Hiddink says he will remain cautious about the usage of fit-again Chelsea forward Eden Hazard. The Belgium international came on as a second-half substitute in the goalless draw at Watford on Wednesday evening, having lasted 64 minutes of the 5-1 weekend FA Cup victory at MK Dons. And Hiddink has vowed not to rush Hazard into playing too big a part for his side, with the talented winger having endured a number of injury problems this season. Speaking after the Premier League stalemate with the Hornets at Vicarage Road, Hiddink told his club’s official website: “He is coming back from a difficult time with two injuries and we are being careful with him, as we have a lot of games coming up now. “I am happy with the way he played when he came on. The judgement is when to bring him on. “For himself it is good to go step-by-step and we have a lot of games coming up when we need all the players.” The Blues are back in action on Sunday when they bet365 welcome Manchester United to Stamford Bridge, with the Blues 21/20 with bet365 to secure a victory.


Soccer – Martinez suffers injury losses


Everton are almost certain to be without both Romelu Lukaku and John Stones for the Premier League trip to Stoke City on Saturday. Leading scorer Lukaku had to be replaced at half-time of the 3-0 victory over Newcastle United at Goodison Park on Wednesday evening, having taken a knock to his back. Meanwhile, central defender Stones was forced to miss the game due to a hamstring problem and both he and Lukaku are highly unlikely to be ready to face the Potters at the Britannia Stadium. Toffees boss Roberto Martinez said after a much-needed victory: “Lukaku couldn’t walk. He had a knee in his back. We are playing on Saturday and it will be difficult to see him make it, but it is not a major problem. “Stones had a bit of a niggle in his hamstring. I think it was a fatigue reaction. I expect him to be back in the next week or ten days.” A draw in the meeting of Stoke and Everton on Saturday is priced at 11/5 by bet365.
