Cincinnati casino faces $125,000 fine for multiple violations

Online gambling sites can’t be trusted to meet regulations and operate within the law. Online gambling sites don’t play by the rules. Online gambling sites play by their own rules. Those are the sentiments that you’ll often hear out of the mouths of those who are anti-gambling, particularly those who believe that online gambling cannibalizes live gambling. But a story…

Turn Yourself Into a Winner

Regardless of the outcome of your play at the casino, being a winner comes from the inside. If you want to feel like a million bucks while you’re at the tables, the first step is to develop a winning attitude. So, what’s the difference between feeling like a winner and being negative? It can come down to simple optimism and…

Prescription drug caused gambling addiction, court rules

Imagine never gambling. Imagine never being interested in casinos or Las Vegas or poker or anything else. Now imagine taking a prescription drug and blowing your life savings. That’s what allegedly happened to dozens of people who took medication for Parkinson’s. Prescription drugs are supposed to help us, not harm us. But a court in the UK has just approved…

Game of the month: Jumping Beans

How was your Cinco de Mayo celebration? It’s a huge deal in my family (My mother is half Mexican and her family still lives close by).

Remembering Devilfish: A Tribute to Dave Ulliott

Last month was a sad month for fans of poker. Poker legend Dave “The Devilfish” Ulliott passed away at just 61 years old, 5 days after celebrating his birthday. After being diagnosed with colon cancer in February, Devilfish succumbed to the disease, leaving this world for good but not without leaving his mark. While the poker world definitely mourns the…

The most important Baccarat tip you should never ignore

Playing Baccarat online or off? Good call. It’s one of the most entertaining and enjoyable table games. I like to think of it as a hybrid of Blackjack and Casino War. It’s not quite as mindless as War, but there’s not as much thinking required as Blackjack. In fact the only decision you’ll need to make in Baccarat is whether…

Hard Rock Casino lets in banned gambler…again

Here we go again. The Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Sioux City, Iowa has only been open since August 2014, but that hasn’t stopped them from violating a state rule. The casino allowed a woman to enter the casino, sign up for a player’s club card, and eventually cash a check at the casino cage. No big deal, right?…
