Chat Rooms In Casinos

Chat Rooms In Casinos

Being social in the online realm has never historically been part of the big picture. This has certainly changed over the last few years and the cyber realm has become a large part of who people are. The ability to interface with others across the globe has made the Internet so much more than simply a gaming platform. It has made it a place for people to meet, greet, and evolve with each other in a way that has never been seen before.

But in a casino The answer is unequivocally yes. With today’s online casinos offering chat in many of their games people can get together and play their favorite games just as the inventors of the games intended. I can assure you that the people that developed Blackjack years and years ago never envisioned a time when their game would be played on a screen with little digital cards flipping up and down, or maybe they did, who knows What they did know was that people were supposed to gather, and chat, and above all have a good time.

The ability for players to chat with each other in a real time environment while playing cards opens up a myriad of possibilities to the casual and professional online gambler. Sometimes just the possibility of the chat makes the game of cards a secondary interest in the room. Some people are obviously more social than others and some may simply enjoy the type of chat that they are able to experience in an online casino better than the type of chat that they might become involved in in a more traditional type of chat room.

Today’s online casinos now offer the option for players to use avatars. If you aren’t familiar with avatars they are simply a small picture, or image, that says a little something about the player’s personality. Some of the times these avatars are little cartoon like characters that the players customize themselves. Other times casinos allow players to use their own images further enabling the player to customize their image exactly and calculating what they want to say to the rest of the world.

While there are many options available to the tech savvy player that wants a little “face” time with the other players when they are playing, many people don’t know how to get started chatting in a casino environment. Unfortunately there are many casinos, including some of the premier casinos, that don’t offer chat room capability with their games. Either they haven’t seen the benefit and increased customer base that is capable with chat rooms, or the technology just isn’t as pervasive as I think that it is. I’m not sure which it is. What I am sure of is that chat is big enough that in the future only a handful of online casinos won’t have online chat capability for at least a portion of their games. And after that a whole new world will open up for everybody.

Called Bets In Roulette

Called Bets In Roulette

Once you have noticed set patterns of betting, it means that you have reached a high level of observance; but noticing by itself may not help explain what you are seeing. You may have noticed that your follow players are placing bets in apparently pre-determined positions; they go to them so quickly, that it seems that they have a pattern. They don’t; what you are seeing are Called or Announced Bets.

These types of bets are according to the wheel and not the range of numbers it contains. For example if you bet on 1st 12 on the table you are betting on numbers 1-12, even though those numbers don’t appear on the wheel in that order. A Called Bet enables you to bet according to the sequence in which the numbers are set on the wheel itself.

Called Bets are used on single-zero tables only and are particularly popular in UK and Europe There are a number of different types, but the 3 main Called Bets are Voisins du Zero, Tiers du Cylindre, Orphelin.

Voisin du Zero This ‘Neighbors or Zero’ bet, refers to the top section of the wheel if 0 is at the top. The range is from 22-25 inclusive and so the full bet covers 22, 18, 29, 7, 28, 12, 35, 3, 26, 0, 32, 15, 19, 4, 21, 2, 25. All of these numbers can be covered by placing chips in the following 9 position on the table; 2 on the 0,2,3 Street; 1 chip over the 5 and 7; 1 over the 12 and 15; 1 over the 18 and 21; 1 over the 19 and 22; 2 on the corner of 25, 26, 28 and 29, and one over the 32 and 35. So in total there are 2 chips on streets, 5 on splits and 2 on a corner.

Tier du Cylindre This section is the one directly opposite the 0 but including less numbers; the Tier runs from the 27 to the 33 inclusive, which comes out as 12 numbers. These may all be bet on by placing chips in the following 6 splits; 1 chip on the 5 and 8, 1 on the 10 and 11, 1 on the13 and 16, 1 on the 23 and 24, 1 on the 27 and 30, and finally 1 on the 33 and 36.

Orphelin The Orphans bet refers to the numbers left over on the sides of the wheel not included in the Tier or the Voisins. These add up to 8 numbers; 17, 34, and 6 from the right side, and 1, 20, 14, 31, and 9. All of these numbers can be covered by 5 positions; a straight up bet on 1, and then split bets on 6 and 9, 14 and 17, 17 and 20, and 31 and 34.

It sounds far more complicated than it is; once you’re aware of the concept you will notice it in action more frequently, and see the value of its logic.
