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.

Cricket NSW, Wanderers and Macarthur FC continue to help fans to reclaim the game

Cricket NSW, Wanderers and Macarthur FC continue to help fans to reclaim the game
Reading Time: 3 minutes

 

Sports fans are set to enjoy more games free of sports betting ads with Cricket NSW and A-League football clubs Western Sydney Wanderers FC and Macarthur FC extending their partnerships under the NSW Government’s Reclaim the Game initiative.

CEO of Hospitality and Racing, Anthony Keon, said the extensions are a major boost for Reclaim the Game, which is challenging the idea that betting is a normal part of sport.

“The extended partnerships are a strong show of faith in Reclaim the Game as sporting franchises realise the importance of rejecting sports betting advertising and promoting gambling awareness among their supporters,” Mr Keon said.

“We now have fourteen teams from five codes turning down sports betting sponsorships and making gambling awareness and education an important part of their work.”

Cricket NSW’s two-year extension will see the rejection of sports betting advertising at home games of the men’s and women’s Big Bash teams, the Sydney Sixers and Sydney Thunder and also their state teams NSW Blues and NSW Breakers.

Cricket NSW CEO Lee Germon said the partnership extension would allow Cricket NSW to continue to make important inroads in helping to prevent – and reduce – the harm gambling can cause individuals, families, and society.

“Since joining forces with the Office of Responsible Gambling, Cricket NSW has made a meaningful contribution towards changing the community’s attitudes towards betting on sport,” said Mr Germon.

“We’re proud to be able to continue to play an active part in educating children that gambling is not a part of sport, and that gambling on sport is a bad bet.

“Cricket NSW will continue to do all we can to counter the constant sports betting advertising and the adverse effect it has on young people – young men, in particular – and their families.”

Western Sydney Wanderers’ partnership has been extended for a further two seasons and includes the women’s team for the first time, while Macarthur FC has signed on for an extra season. These extensions will be in place for the upcoming A-league season which kicks off on Friday 7 October.

Western Sydney Wanderers CEO Scott Hudson said he was proud to be continuing the relationship for the next two seasons.

“It is important for us to have an impact beyond the field and together with Reclaim the Game we have brought awareness of the impact that sports betting can have in professional sport,” said Mr Hudson.

“We are delighted that this partnership has now extended to our A-League Women’s team, and we look forward to continuing to build our relationship with Reclaim the Game over the next two years.”

Macarthur FC Group CEO, Sam Krslovic said “We are proud to continue our partnership with Reclaim the Game and be part of this positive initiative. Our community wellbeing is our primary focus and we feel it is important to promote a healthy connection between our game and our fans.”

Mr Keon said Reclaim the Game partners play a vital role in educating fans, players and staff about the risks associated with gambling.

“Reclaim the Game is a great way to reach young men who are most at risk of gambling harm with an estimated 41 per cent of regular sports bettors experiencing one or more gambling-related problems,” Mr Keon said.

“Online sports betting is on the rise with one in 20 adults in NSW betting on sports and growing community concern that children and young people are being exposed to too much gambling advertising.

“Research shows that almost 50 per cent of 12–17-year-olds saw gambling advertising on television during sports and racing events on a weekly basis and almost 1 in 3 young people considered betting on sports to be normal.

“Reclaim the Game is about getting back to what sport is all about – watching, enjoying and cheering on your team without intrusive sports betting ads getting in the way.

“We are so pleased that Cricket NSW, Western Sydney Wanderers and Macarthur FC will continue to reclaim the game and provide a family friendly environment for their fans to enjoy games without being bombarded by betting ads.”

If you or someone you care about needs support or advice, please call GambleAware on 1800 858 858 for free and confidential help and support 24/7.

These Reclaim the Game partnership extensions come in the leadup to GambleAware Week, an annual initiative for the NSW community to raise awareness about the risks of gambling and gambling harm. GambleAware Week will take place from Monday 17 October – Sunday 23 October 2022.
