After the Fall is the next major VR game from the Arizona Sunshine® studio and brings intense 4-player co-op action in an evolving post-apocalyptic world to VR headsets

Vertigo Games, the VR specialist publishing and development arm of the Koch Media Group, announced today that their next VR title After the Fall will be releasing on PlayStation VR, PC VR and yet to be announced VR platforms in Summer 2021.

Best-known for the platinum-selling VR FPS Arizona Sunshine, with this next major entry in the VR action FPS genre Vertigo Games will be bringing fast-paced 4-player co-op action to VR gamers worldwide, pitting players and their friends against a hostile, evolving post-apocalyptic LA in a fight for survival.

After the Fall is built from the ground up for a multi-platform VR rollout, with full cross-platform multiplayer, 4-player co-op functionality as well as support for a wide range of VR play styles that will offer an immersive thrillride for veteran VR gamers while remaining welcoming to VR newcomers as they conquer the infested, urban wasteland of 1980s Los Angeles together with friends or solo.

“Since the early concept phase, After the Fall has been all about having VR gamers team up together – regardless of the device they play on – through full cross-platform multiplayer functionality. In a time of widespread social isolation it feels like that goal now has additional relevance,” said Richard Stitselaar, Studio Director at Vertigo Games. “We’re truly excited about moving into this next campaign phase, in which we’ll be inviting more players into the game and sharing more details as we gear up towards launch.”

Armed with full VR motion controls, After the Fall will make you feel like a slightly overpowered 1980s action hero as you engage in the game’s high-paced combat with real-life movements. Players will venture out into enemy territory in teams of 4 – or accompanied by AI companions – wielding an arsenal of unique and deadly weapons in the face of hordes of snowbreed – ferocious undead creatures that have driven humanity below ground – all in order to secure mankind’s survival for another day.

Developed by Vertigo Studios (Arizona Sunshine) and published by Vertigo Games, After the Fall will be coming to PlayStation VR, PC VR and to be announced VR platforms in Summer 2021.

Casino games serve as a form of entertainment for many people. Players see the games as a way to enjoy themselves and make money. However, no matter how exciting the games are, the end goal of playing will always be to win.

Winning in a casino game isn’t a walk in the park – if it were easy to win, almost everyone would be playing. Before playing games, there are important things to know and strategies to increase one’s chances of winning.

If you’re playing online roulette, for instance, there are some things you need to know. Firstly, you have to understand the game and the rules. If you don’t understand the rules of the game, you’re already setting yourself up to lose and ruin your playing experience.

This article will highlight some strategies you can start using to win casino games. You should find the strategies useful, even if you’re an expert.

 

What are the Best Strategies To Win at Online Casino Games?

However, before learning strategies, the most important thing to know/do before visiting an online casino website to play any game is to understand the basic rules of each game. Playing a game you don’t understand is like dashing out your money to the casino house.

Most online casinos have online resources where you can learn the basics, or you could do a simple Google or YouTube search.

After learning the basics of any casino game, the following are some strategies you can use to increase your winning chances:

 

1. Play Games with Low House Edges

Target games with a lower house edge. Those games are Blackjack, Craps, and Baccarat. An edge means the odd percentage. A casino has a higher edge when its odds are better than yours, while a lower edge means you have a huge chance of winning as long as you play the opposite game type.

Slot games have a high house edge, so you might want to avoid them if you don’t have a lot of money. To increase your chance of winning, target games with a low edge.

 

2. Don’t Chase the Money You Lost

When you lose money while playing, don’t play to regain your losses. If you have that mindset, you might even lose more.

Learn to stop playing when your winning streak ends and get comfortable with the loss. Have a line you won’t cross with your budget, don’t spend more than a particular amount.

 

3. Learn Gambling Mathematics

Even if you’ve never heard it before, your knowledge of casino games isn’t complete without knowing some mathematics. Knowing what house edge and return to player (RTP) percentage mean is key to placing a great bet and winning.

 

4. Learn How to Predict Losses

Every professional gambler knows how to predict losses. To predict your loss, you’d need to know the return to player (RTP) percentage, the number of bets you want, the house edge, and the average size of each bet.

To get your house edge, you’ll subtract your RTP  percentage from 100. Then to calculate the loss, use the following formula:

Loss = House edge percentage x number of bets x average size of each bet.

Your answer to the math would be your average loss estimate.

 

5. Use Your Reward and Bonuses

When offered any bonus, don’t turn them down; always accept them, as they lower the house edge. Accept and use your player rewards, bonuses, coupons, and other promotions when you’re offered.

 

6. Say No to Progressive Betting

There are a lot of progressive betting strategies, like the Fibonacci method and Martingale. These betting systems will require you to wage a huge amount after losing hands or rolls and even, in the end, win a little amount. You shouldn’t risk using such a method, as it can affect your budget if it doesn’t work out.

 

7. Choose a Winning Goal and Loss Limit

When you choose a winning goal, you set an amount that you would win and stop playing. If you set $200 as your win goal, you’ll stop playing as soon as you win $200. You should also set a loss limit. This is when you set the lowest amount to stop playing, so you won’t go on tilt.

 

Conclusion

Winning at casino games isn’t only tied to when you walk out with a profit. It could also be when you stop playing after reaching your limit or refuse to chase after a loss.

It’s better to leave and play another day than spend all your life savings chasing losses only to fail at it. This is why you need to develop the right strategies. The strategies provided above will set you up nicely to be a successful punter.
