Tips and Tricks to Mastering Online Casino Games
Reading Time: 3 minutes

 

As times have changed, online casinos have become increasingly popular with gamblers and it’s not surprising as these changes have included a huge rise in the use of smartphones and other technologies, leading to people becoming reliant on them for practically everything, entertainment being no exception. Not only do online casinos provide ease and convenience to players/users, but due to the games barely differing from those in a physical casino, apps, and websites are becoming the logical location for a betting fix.

Due to this boom in popularity, the industry has seen many companies invest in ensuring that their online platforms are the best they can be, from the ease of use for all ages to fighting off competitors, of which there are a lot. Online casinos are also growing their popularity as they enable users to better their skills in the comfort of their own home, without an audience, to then bring their skills to the casino tables now and then, it is a great way to get your skills up to scratch.

There are a few tips and tricks to mastering online casino games, or any casino games in fact, so here are a few of the most popular games played by gamblers and a few things to keep up your sleeve when playing, whether you’re playing online slots, or trying your luck with the roulette wheel.

Become a Roulette King

If you’re a casino newbie, roulette is one of the most played games; despite how it may look in films or if you have watched others play, it can be very simple to learn and lots of fun once you know how to. The idea of the game is straightforward, you must anticipate the number or color in which the ball will land one once it has been spun on the wheel by the croupier, if the outcomes are as you predicted then you will be a winner, your return depending on the type of bet you placed, single numbers being worth more than colours or sections.

The basics of playing the game may be simple, but there are a few tricks that you may need to know if you want to master the game or even just increase your chances at a win. Outside bets offer lower odds and so winnings will be smaller than inside bets, but the risk is considerably lower. The risk is lower because an outside bet means betting on either…

  • Black or red
  • Odd or even
  • Low or high

Much like with any form of gambling or betting, roulette can cause you to get carried away with your money and so it is important to keep yourself in check, online game can allow you to do this easily as you are provided with a constant reminder of how much you have in your bankroll, limiting the possibility for your spending to become out of control. It is always wise to ask yourself, before putting down more money, if you can afford to lose it, as opposed to letting you remember to wander with the possibility of winning.

Become a Slots Champion

Slots are yet another popular choice for both actual and online casino players as there are so many to choose from and new ones being released fairly frequently. Sots are so attractive to players as they are so simple, they offer the chance to win some money without the hassle or confusion of too many rules, they simply explain the meanings of the symbols at the start of the game and indicate what you need to win and off you go. But, despite the game being easy, there are still a few tricks that can be used to maximize your chance of winning.

When choosing a slot machine/game it is good to look out for the payout and choose the one with the highest as if you want to win big you need to be playing a game that has it up for grabs. As well as the payout, the ‘return to player’ percentage is another thing to look out for as this indicates what percentage of all money placed in the machine is given back in winnings, the higher the better; this can be found by googling the game you are looking to play and you child be able to find it.

Slots are also beloved by players as they often offer players free spins and it is important to take advantage of these, but make sure that there are no hidden terms to doing so, the wager-free bonus offers are the ones you want as there are no conditions attached to redeeming them.

Online slots games will allow you to choose the option of playing automatically or playing for yourself, meaning that the site can spin for you, or you can decide to do it for yourself if you are superstitious about light or heavy spins. But, a tip for you when playing slots it that it doesn’t make any difference, whichever option you chose, so save yourself the effort of trying to gain a favorable outcome and let it spin, by doing so you could be maximizing your chances of a win as the time spent spinning is longer.

eSports Betting Strategy – Key factors of success and what you should avoid

eSports Betting Strategy – Key factors of success and what you should avoid
Reading Time: 4 minutes

 

 

Betting on eSports is becoming more and more popular every day. That shouldn’t come as a surprise, since the market is flooded with online video games that are considered the new generation of sports, like League of Legends or Counter-Strike: Global Offensive.

The eSports industry is currently valued at over 1 billion dollars, and it’s expected to grow even more in the coming years. But how can you use this information to your advantage?

Well, in recent years, bookmakers noticed the increase in demand for an eSports betting market. After understanding the potential, they quickly implemented a feature that allows gaming enthusiasts to bet on the outcome of the greatest gaming tournaments, like League of Legends World Championship or the Counter-Strike: Global Offensive Major Championships.

A significant advantage of eSports betting is that it works similarly to traditional sports, meaning that you will get odds based on team statistics, and you will have to decide which team will win the match. Mostly, if you’re following all the major gaming championships, you should have a good idea regarding who will be victorious and bank some serious cash while you’re at it.

If you want to be a serious bettor, having a well-defined eSports betting strategy is mandatory. Below, we’ve listed the key factors for success:

Choose a suitable bookmaker

Let’s say you want to start betting on eSports right away. Well, if that’s the case, you will want to sign up for a licensed casino operator, because otherwise you risk getting scammed by “pirate casinos” and even if you guessed the outcome correctly, you wouldn’t be able to withdraw the winnings.

Even though this advice might sound like the most basic requirement for any aspiring bettor, many beginners have no idea where to get started. After running some tests, we’ve figured out that the platforms listed on this website are trustworthy, and many of them allow you to bet on your favorite eSports tournaments.

Additionally, the betting platform you go for must have low margins, best odds, and no bet amount limit. While it might sound like a daunting task, it’s in your best interest to compare various bookmakers and choose the one that suits your needs.

Always research before planning your bets

Research is key in any betting market you’re planning to get into. If you’re an eSports fan, you surely spend hours watching professional teams battle each other on live stream or YouTube. However, you should never take that knowledge for granted.

Running in-depth research on eSports requires you to have a profound understanding of the game mechanics and how a team performs against another. Spend time getting to know the strategy used by all the teams participating in the championship, and you will begin noticing specific play patterns that could help you speculate the final outcome better.

For example, if you’re a fan of League of Legends pro team SKT T1, you will notice that Faker, their mid-laner is able to win his lane and carry even if he is against a counter pick, as long as he’s playing one of his main champions. However, if the enemy team bans Faker’s best championship, SKT will be at a huge disadvantage, because their strategy revolves around their mid laner hyper carrying them in the late game. So, you can never be sure of a team’s success, even if the odds are in their favor.

Keep track of your success

Being successful in betting requires a long-term strategy. Of course, racking up some easy wins because you got lucky might suffice, but if you’re serious about eSports betting, you will need to measure how many guesses were made right and how many were wrong. After you’ve got a clear picture of your win rate, you can go ahead and analyze your losses and try figuring out what went wrong.

Implement a staking method

If you want to optimize your bankroll, you must implement a staking method in your betting. Necessarily, you will need to prioritize the events and adjust the value of the wagers accordingly. You don’t want to bet too much on an underdog, even if your favorite player is part of that team. Still, if a team has an excellent reputation and has won a lot recently, you will surely want to wager more money on that event.

Now that you have a great idea on how to bet on eSports efficiently, it’s time to learn some of the common wagering mistakes that you should avoid at all costs:

Avoid betting on too many games

Even if you’re a complete beginner to eSports betting, you know that betting on every game is a bad idea, because you won’t always find odds that offer a positive expected value. Therefore, you should carefully select the events that you bet on, based on the odds listed on the bookmaker’s site and your general knowledge about the teams.

Never bet based on emotion

Just because you like a team or “your gut feeling” tells you that they will be victorious, it doesn’t necessarily mean that your assumption is correct. Always make your betting decisions based on facts, and you should avoid getting “tilted.” In a nutshell, being tilted means that after a losing streak, you decide to ditch your strategy and simply go with your intuition, which usually results In losing even more money.

Relying solely on the odds

New eSports bettors will see that an event has high odds, and they will instantly bet on the underdog just because they want to get a huge return fast. In reality, these odds are purely based on probability, meaning that they represent the bookmaker’s estimation on what will happen. The higher the odds, the less likely that team is going to win.

We’re not saying that an underdog will never win against a well-established team. However, you should never make bets based on the odds from the bookmaker. Instead, you should calculate the probability yourself by factoring in all the knowledge you have on the teams and by analyzing games where they go against each other (if available).

Now that you have a better understanding of how betting on eSports works, you can go ahead and start looking for opportunities. Before you go, keep in mind that patience is the key virtue of any gambler, so sometimes it’s better not to bet at all instead of making a decision based on intuition or with just partial information.

Placing bets on eSports is just like playing them – many players understand the mechanics, but only a few of them will use them successfully and make it to the top!
