The excitement of poker machines with the bright lights and flashy music have lured gamblers towards them like magnets. Since the time they were introduced enthusiasts have waited eagerly for weekends to try their luck. New generation gamblers are luckier as they do not have to wait for the weekend or travel to a casino as poker machines are now available as applications to them. Now poker games are available on every smartphone platform which can be downloaded as an application via Google Play or several others, such as toponlinecasinos.co.za. The easy availability of poker applications on smart phones is like multiple poker machines in clubs and pubs which may increase number of problem gamblers.
Research Results of online gambling
Gambling research lab located in Bundaberg is carrying out a research in collaboration with CQ University of Australia and Victorian Responsible Gambling Foundation and have developed a poker application to collect user data that will help them to understand gambler behaviour. They invite people through online surveys to play on their application for free and then record their play patterns over a period of time. Through this study they are collecting data about player behaviour to find patterns that will help them distinguish between problem gamblers that those that play for leisure.
How players control the urge to play
According to researchers collecting data, the main concern of people advocating against gambling applications is their ability to influence children at a young age. Gambling applications that urge players to try out gambling at a young age make them treat this vice as any ordinary game and they do not realize it’s addictive pattern until it is too late. Research shows an encouraging trend among poker application players that are not interested in going to a real casino and playing with money. These players are happy with their phone application and do not want to waste money and time going to a real casino.
After weeks of gossip, Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner officially announced their divorce on June 30, 2015. The couple, which recently celebrated their 10th wedding anniversary, is splitting up amicably.
According to a joint statement issued by these world-famous Hollywood actors, Affleck and Garner are hoping to maintain a friendship post-marriage. The actors have three children together, and plan on splitting parental duties in the future.
Ben Affleck’s Gambling Habits
One source close to both Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck claims that Affleck’s gambling addiction is partially responsible for the divorce. In fact, Affleck has been seen in several Las Vegas casinos participating in amateur poker tournaments since the couple split up.
More specifically, Affleck spent a night playing poker in Las Vegas on May 3, 2015. Affleck was also seen on the weekend of May 14th playing high-stakes Texas Hold ‘Em in Las Vegas. A friend of Affleck claims that the actor was in charge of caring for his children that weekend, meaning that he left them with a babysitter so that he could gamble in Las Vegas.
Affleck and Las Vegas Casinos
Ben Affleck’s recent string of appearances in Las Vegas coincides with the actor’s longstanding fondness for gambling at many of Nevada’s most popular casinos. Tabloids and gossip websites even reported that Affleck’s compulsive gambling habits lead to the actor being removed from a blackjack table in a Las Vegas casino.
Affleck and Garner tried to address the actor’s gambling addiction in marriage therapy. Reports suggest that the couple participated in monthly therapy for over 2 years, hoping to save their marriage and family.
Although Ben Affleck claims to be sober, other gossip websites claim that Affleck’s penchant for booze-fueled weekends playing blackjack was one of the main reasons why Jennifer Garner wanted a divorce.

About Irish Poker Open
Other than the World Poker Championships, the Irish Poker Open is the longest standing Poker tournament in the world. It is also the longest running Poker event in all of Europe. It is a prestigious event, with winners rising up as Poker players on the international Poker scene. The 2015 Open went on for four days, with six side events, along with the main live Poker tournament, one of which was the Liam Flood Memorial Tournament.
World Series of Poker (WSOP) has announced the dates for this year’s annual world series of poker, the forty-sixth such event. The annual competition series is set to last for 49 days, from the twenty-seventh of May to the fourteenth of July and will have sixty eight events, the highlight of which will be the ‘Colossus’ poker tournament. All of the events will be conducted in Las Vegas in the Rio® All-Suit Hotel and Casino.
To be held for the first time ever, the Colossus is expected to be the largest poker tournament in history, based on the number of participants. Starting on May 29, the tournament is expected to go on for five days in two stages, the first stage lasting for five days and the second stage for four days. The fifth event in this year’s competition, it will have two starting days with each day having two flights. The facilities of the hotel-casino are expected to be able to handle around 24,200 players. Depending on the number of entries, the tournament may extend to another day.
Something for Everyone
The tournament has a guaranteed prize pool of 5 million dollars for each of the four flights and has a buy-in of $565; the final pot, however is expected to be much bigger. If a player is eliminated from their flight, they are eligible to join any other flight with another $565 buy-in. As this is expected to be a very popular event, you might want to pre-register.
Another change this year is that WSOP will handle its own media coverage; however, you can still follow the events on other traditional channels too. So, what are you waiting for? It’s not everyday that you get such an opportunity. Register now; who knows, this might just be your lucky year.
Utilising a typical 52 card deck within each round of play, Bonus Deuces Wild Poker is far from unique in the sense that it auto-shuffles before each game played. Each and every deuce in the deck is considered wild, and similarly each may be utilised in order to provide players with their winning combinations.
As is typical within the confines of modern Microgaming, Bonus Deuces Wild Poker gives its players the added bonus of super convenience through auto conversions. In other and hopefully less complicated terms: the software programs the deuce in a way that gives you the highest possibility of a winning combination on the last deal.
Lodging bets are blissfully easy, with a simple control on the bottom left hand side of the interface allowing individual selection of denomination (by way of (+) and (-) signs) as well as minimal amount of direct action keys (‘Bet One’, ‘Bet Max’) etc.
With the games auto play and expert mode functions, some may make the assumption that Bonuses Deuces Wild Poker is a game that is less about skill and more about blind sighted entertainment at the expense of what is, in its traditional form at least, an institution within gambling both past and present.
A particularly interesting function of the game is the ‘doubling’ option. It’s the first time most will have encountered this option within a poker-related to Microgaming; and it certainly sets the title apart from the others they will have played recently. Essentially all it does is allow the player, after they had won, the option of playing immediately again for double the amount taken from the table in the previous round. Five cards are dealt out, four face down and one face up. The dealer is dealt one which is face up and it is the objective of the round to select a face down card which betters the dealers. Failure results in decimation of the pot, success in the option of doubling up once more.
All in all, this poker offering is a very well-functioning game with a good grasp of the concepts it is designed to represent and few fresh ideas thrown in for good measure!
A crushing point in gaming and computing came in the 1990s when the IBM computer Deep Blue was able to defeat the world chess champion Garry Kasparov in a much hailed chess match. It turns out Texas hold’em is going to be the next game to be conquered in the rise of the mighty machines. Hold on to your poker chips, fellow gamblers. Science may have just labeled us all as the perpetual sucker at the table.
The specific version of Texas hold’em computers may have now mastered is known as a two player version of heads-up limit Texas hold’em. What makes this computer advance particularly stunning is its difference from other computer solutions to games like chess. In chess, all of the possible scenarios are known to the computer. It is only a matter of looking deep enough to find the right move to eventually checkmate a human. In Texas hold’em, each player has two cards hidden. This means the computer never has all of the information needed to compute all of the possible scenarios. To solve the problem, computers would require more memory and more power.
This perfect play of Texas hold’em is found in an algorithm made by computer scientists at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. They took an existing algorithm used for Texas hold’em and modified it slightly. The result is a more powerful algorithm that can handle the uncertainty variables in a game of Texas hold’em.
Of course, that such an algorithm for perfect Texas hold’em play exists might be enough to set internet gamblers on edge. How do you know your opponents aren’t cheating? For now, don’t worry. The algorithm requires 262 terabytes of memory. That’s over 250,000 times the amount of memory on the iPhone 6. No one will be cheating with their phone anytime soon.
Widely known as international leading internet portal for Open Face Chinese poker games, TonyBet recently announced its license to serve players in the UK has come through. Luckily enough, the online portal managed to secure their licence right before the iGaming deadline set by the UK Government came into effect.
Owner and proprietor Tony ‘G’ Guoga first made his way into the poker world in the early 2000’s. His first prominent stake online was made with the purchase of pokernews.com. He is responsible for reinventing the news driven web portal to the widely popular information hub it is today.
Playing it like a pro
Being a professional player Tony G has earned several main events at porker championships and tournaments, and took away $456,882 after winning the main event at the European Poker Championship held in 2005. After playing a series of games and events, he decided to invest in an online business and created his very own sportsbook.
The instant success and profit that the website earned as a mere sportsbook, urged the entrepreneur to expand his name and outfit to provide online poker services to his ever increasing number of patrons.
Delighted to be able to render poker services to one of the largest online gaming markets in the world, the website is happy to announce its notice of approval to be able to tend to UK players.
Paving the way in the means of celebratory events is the website’s hosting of the first ever online Open Face Chinese Poker room. In addition, the online portal is also set to present its premier live event and championship in a three day Open Face Poker World Championship.
Set to officiate in Prague, the three day event promises a wide array of exciting games and celebrations open to all eager and interested players. Play will start off with a $10,000 high roller Monday re-entry event, closely followed by a €1,000 main event to be held on Tuesday. The website is proud to be the biggest OFC poker site across the globe.
Global Poker Index have been working very hard in recent years to create more buzz around professional poker. Their exact words are that poker should be “sportified.” This is a challenging task, because the committee does not want to add any serious rule changes to professional poker, but they want to make things more interesting for viewers.
This is where the Global Poker League comes into the picture. The GPI believes that creating this league would allow poker to compete with other fringe sports, such as Nascar or Formula One. A spokesperson for the GPI had this to say when asked about the subject by Poker News: “I believe this is a very ambitious idea. It is something that could be really good, but it could also backfire and have a negative impact. If it goes as planned, the landscape of poker will change dramatically.”
A lot of work has been put into poker by rich benefactors over the past few years. Alex Dreyfus has bought up a large stake in GPI over the past few years. His plan is to monetize the sport in a way that makes money for the organizers, not just the players. He wants a poker league where different teams are participating against each other during a four or five month season.
He had this to say on the matter: “There are plenty of other individual sports out there, such as tennis and golf, that have team tournaments. The Ryder Cup and Davis Cup are huge events around the world. Poker can have a similar team event.”
Dreyfus wants five or six teams to start off the event, with more being added if the Poker League is a success. The idea is for each team to be owned/run by a “leader.” A method for selecting players has yet to be decided.
