The house doesn’t actually always win

Casinos are perhaps the most interesting places you could visit on the planet. Museums are nice, but casinos are great. Aside from all the natural marvels that they have rose from the depths of the Earth or the brilliant man-made structures, casinos are fascinating in their own way.

Let us tell you about one thing that makes these places worth visiting, maybe even more than once, whether or not you are a gambling enthusiast.

For a long time, these places have been like the song of a siren, that lures nearby sailors on the water of life itself. At the mere sight of a gambling spot, the first thought that crosses one’s mind is that one could get rid of one’s financial worries and struggles forever with a small investment and a bit of luck. Maybe right now you’re thinking that such don’t happen. Well, it could, and it has.

Some Lucky Gamblers

Cynthia Jay Brennan
She became one of the luckiest people on Earth in 2000, the beginning of a new millennium. And more than that, she became a new entry in the list of humans who won big in a casino. And when I say “big” I wish I could say that it were a joke, but we’re talking more than 34 million dollars in this case. Depending on your lifestyle, this amount of money could not only allow you to never work a day in your life again, but your grandchildren would also be set for life.

Elmer Sherwin
Dubbed by some “the luckiest man in Las Vegas”, she is a two-time Megabucks winner: in 1989 and in 2005. That’s a bit crazy, isn’t it? And how much did luck really have to do with it? Well, Elmer’s biggest win was just about over 21 million dollars. Now put yourself in the shoes of someone who had just got richer by a huge amount. What would you do with all the money? Spend it all in one night? Invest it in some Silicon Valley start-up? Or perhaps you’re feeling a little charitable and you do something like what Elmer did and invest a considerable amount in the Hurricane Katrina relief fund?

Richie Rich
$39.7 Million: a twenty-five-year-old engineer from Los Angeles came to Vegas to support his favorite basketball team. With Vegas being Vegas, he decided to spend some time at a casino. So after he spent 100 dollars on slot machines, he became one of the biggest winners in the city. He won a sum just a little shy of 40 million dollars at the Excalibur casino in Las Vegas. Boom, just like that.

Spend some money, make some money

These three are just a few people who played in a casino and actually won. That does not mean, by any means, that everyone would; or that if you go right now and pull the lever on a slot machine you will certainly join the ranks of such winners. Nope, it doesn’t work like that, nor will ever. But what it does mean is that it is possible. Always and at any time. Even though the odds are not exactly in one’s favor, winning happens all the time. Si why not you?

What we find fascinating about this (and perhaps we are not the only ones) is that it takes very little involvement. Obviously, there are a number of different ways you could go about making millions of dollars, but very few of them are as simple as inserting a few coins/bills and pressing a button. Makes you think, doesn’t, it?

You must spend money to make money” is another thing that people say, and it turns out that in 99% of the times that is correct. And let’s not focus only on gambling for this one. Think about starting a business or taking a journey into self-development. At first, before you can even think about the profits you can make you have to do a little spending yourself. Whether that spending is renting a workplace, hiring a specialist in advertising or business planning, it is quintessential that it all starts with something you have invested in. Even if it’s just time, energy, effort, thinking. It’s all resources. You could say it’s a “be the change you want to see” type of situation, meaning that if you want people to spend resources on your business you have to spend some of your resources first.

Online Casinos

The casino land scape is changing and while these where 3 lucky winners from players who played offline, there are tons of big jackpot winners who have played online casino slots.

The Mega Moolah jackpot winner of €13,209,300, won in October 2015, by a 26-year-old British man. The Mega Fortune, Finnish Jackpot winner who took home €17,861,800 in 2013. The Hall of Gods jackpot winner of $8.63 in 2017. These are just a few examples of some bigger jackpot winners.

Playing casino online has also become more popular and common than playing casino offline. Online casino offers you a bigger selection of slot games, no waiting times, and accessibility from anywhere. This is even more true in today world, as online casinos now also offer you the ability to play on your mobile.

In addition, given that online casinos have much lower cost (they don’t have to pay huge sums of money in rent), they also give players more beneficial offers such as free spins, free bonuses without deposit for new players, big deposit bonuses like 250% up to a certain amount. That means that if you deposit 100, the casino will give you an additional 250 to play with. For example, in Romania, Maxbet casino offers new players 100 RON, about 20 euros in free money without the need to make a deposit just to test them out.

After a mandatory corona break of several weeks, casinos and gambling resorts in Germany are reopening. Operators have to comply with numerous hygiene regulations to minimize infection risks for customers and employees. This is why German Wiesbaden Casino has opted for DERMALOG’s non-contact fever detection.

With its Fever Detection Camera, DERMALOG has developed a solution that measures body temperatures fast and accurately when walking by and can significantly reduce the risk of infection spreading in many areas. The Wiesbaden Casino has chosen the company’s system as part of its hygiene concept.

At the entrance of the prestigious casino, customers have to make the contactless fever check by DERMALOG before entering. The camera measures body temperature within one second by scanning people’s faces using state-of-the-art sensor technology. If an increased temperature is detected, the system displays an alert message. The solution sets data protection standards by measuring without capturing or storing any personal data. High accuracy, even from a distance of up to 2 meters, is another advantage of the camera. As an option, DERMALOG’s temperature check includes automated mask detection. If an area requires the use of face masks, the DERMALOG solution kindly advises people without appropriate protection to wear one.

“In these times, health protection for our guests and employees has absolute priority. The Fever Detection Camera makes a significant contribution here,” says Andreas Krautwald, managing director of the Wiesbaden Casino.

DERMALOG’s thermal camera is already being used in more than 60 countries. The “Made in Germany” system protects retail stores, offices, manufacturing halls, sports grounds, events, hotels, banks, public authorities and many other locations.

Cloudbet Innovates Around UFC 250 With In-Play Betting & Best Prices



Amanda-Nunes Cloudbet Innovates Around UFC 250 With In-Play Betting & Best Prices
Amanda-Nunes-1 Cloudbet Innovates Around UFC 250 With In-Play Betting & Best PricesReading Time: 2 minutes


Amanda Nunes is fighting to preserve the longest winning streak in the women’s UFC this weekend, and Cloudbet is offering a swathe of betting options to excite players as they watch history unfold.

Players will be able to use in-play betting at Cloudbet to place new wagers between rounds on Nunes’ featherweight title defence against Felicia Spencer. The pioneering bitcoin sportsbook is aiming to offer the world’s best prices — with margins as low as 2% — on this fight and the rest of the UFC 250 card.

Nunes won her featherweight title by knocking Cris Cyborg out during UFC 232, and players can bet on the same outcome for Felicia Spencer, thanks to new prop markets from Cloudbet. Up to 28 prop markets are available per fight this weekend, on outcomes including win by KO/TKO and in which round a bout will end.

Props betting currently represents the fastest-growing engagement sector in global sports betting. As a result, Cloudbet is innovating its product set across UFC, where technical-outcome performance betting is in increasing demand.

“All eyes will be on whether Amanda Nunes can make history,” a Cloudbet spokesman said. “We’re trying to create maximum engagement and excitement around that fight and the rest of UFC 250.”

In addition to the enhanced UFC offering, the Cloudbet casino recently partnered with Relax Gaming to offer legendary UFC ring announcer Bruce Buffer’s very own MMA-inspired slot game. The “It’s Time!!” slot gives players a chance to win up to 2500x their bet.

Players can expect similar offerings for all upcoming MMA events on Cloudbet, which relaunched itself in late April following its biggest makeover since starting business in 2013. The MMA offerings are among the host of new features introduced on the new, along with USDT betting, esports markets and on-site cryptocurrency purchases.

UFC 249 last month marked the return of the competition from its Covid-induced hibernation, and betting operators predictably saw significant MMA business after the two-month layoff. The Ferguson-Gaethje and Cejudo-Cruz title fights were the Cloudbet sportsbook’s biggest events by turnover in the week that UFC 249 took place.

The new Cloudbet supports Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash and Ethereum, with more new coins on the way. New players are eligible for a sign-up bonus up to 5 BTC/BCH/ETH. Besides MMA, Cloudbet’s sportsbook offers odds on a multitude of markets around the world, while the Cloudbet casino has hundreds of slots and a live-dealer experience with all classic table games.
