Happy Holidays

Happy Thanksgiving, Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, what ever you call it, I hope that you have a good one. I wanted to remind you to keep a lookout for great bonuses and make you aware that great deals you wouldn't usually find at a casino all of a sudden start to become available. Check all of your affiliates lists etc etc because it's that time. Also, this is a great opportunity to get ripped off! So many of these tiny sites make it seem like they are a huge casino passing off a great deal and the next thing you know, you are getting squashed. Always check your latest casino bonuses black list before making any kind of deposits etc. The big sports games are coming up as well and sportsbooks tend to give some really insane deals. They want to get your money on the site before the big game. Look at the specials now, by the time the big games are here they usually aren't actually as great. I have been comprising a list myself and continuing to scrutinize sites for providing poor service to its patrons. One of the companies that I want to point out specifically (because it is very large) is the cirrus casino companies. Thats coolcat, wildvegas,cirrus, dream,bingo knights and several others. They are extremely slow for payouts and have been contacted many times about this. They are so concerned with making sure that bonuses are not being exploited that they require a super long verification and hold your money for the duration. Supposedly this is why. I get really concerned when I hear that things like this are happening. Whenever a casino is REALLY starting to go under, the first thing they do is start to delay payouts. Take fulltilt for example.... For months they were delaying payouts before they eventually went out of business. I personally have make 5-6 cash outs among the cirrus chain and they have all taken well over a month to process which is unacceptable. The average casinos withdrawal period is never more than 2 weeks. Continually, they would lose my verification paperwork or conveniently not get the faxes that I sent. That being said, I did eventually get my money.... after horribly customer service, getting hung up on, and fighting and kicking the entire way there. Please stay away, this is a public warning against using any of their services for your entertainment. I have a dear friend that recently started up his online website and would like for me to share it. So please, if you want to, indulge in how to remove acne scars permanently. I am ready for the Thanksgiving, all the turkey, gravy, and mashed potatoes that I could dream of! As a bonus, at the live casinos players at the poker tables tend to get just plain stupid. I guess I just wanted to make a sort of public service announcement. I read a tip to go during the holidays in a David Skalansky book and it really worked out well, so I hope it does for you as well. Thanks again for reading and enjoy the holidays!!!

Live Online Casinos Are Just More Fun!

Hola amigos.
Thanks for reading Casino Informant.
Recently, I’ve been playing at online casinos that have real employees with my grandfather. It appears that he frequently is up and I always lose, he is constantly pointing it out, what a jerk. Still, we’ve had tons of good times, win or lose. While it's that time, I just wanted to remind people to check out my holiday post!

To begin, today I shall go over live online casinos. I’ll review them as well as what many of the good and bad are. I’ve been noticing these more and more and they are getting favored among streamers and video bloggers, let’s not hesitate, I’ll start.
What are live online casinos anyhow? Well, online websites have found the impersonal algorythm they have just doesn’t make it. The real person gives a more close and interactive experience which isn’t able to be replaced by a computer program. Hence, creatively , websites are mixing video streaming and software to bring you online casino gaming in combination with live dealers that actually deal the cards or spin the wheel and so on. The experience can feel like the player has a personal dealer in your home, we like to pretend ,anyways, and it makes me feel rich!

What are the bonuses to live online casinos? Some speculate that the RNG for a casino is not well generated . It can certainly feel this way, but it is random enough for their purpose. Some say that number generation is too random and so you don’t have those fun streaks that players would if they were playing live. I think this can make the play seem more authentic and the swings feel much more real. Someone cannot be swindled nearly as easy if there’s a human distributing real cards in front of you. I feel the issue may not be the RNG, instead gambling against an automatic dealer just gets you to feel jipped somehow. The group aspect of the experience can be good also, it can be a ton of joy having other players at a table. It also gives the general experience of degenerates saving you or hurting you by “stealing” your cards, or giving you one you really needed instead!

What are the things I don’t like? Well, there might be slow dealers and quick dealers. I have rarely if ever met a dealer which can deal hands as efficiently as a computer. In addition, there are minimum bet requirements and there can be many other people seated at your table. I must point out, if you want to just zone out and play, a program might be better. Humans have accidents, there is nothing worse for example of getting canoodled out of a big win because a real dealer gives your money to another person, although the casinos online appear to be very adept at handling this and also there is footage of the play ,it helps. That might either be good or a bad, still lots of the dealers can be distracting. Websites seem to have women with large boobs which have shirts which I’m surprised if contain them. Besides that, I beleive live online casinos are a great time and much nicer than the traditional web casino feel.

Thank you again for reading my writing. We went over the basics of what a live online casino is and the pros and cons. Anyways, should be worth taking an attempt if you haven’t before. It’s nice to appreciate new mehods on how sites are revamping casino play.

Casino Bonus Source

Hello Everyone, in this post we are going to go over legitimate sources for casino bonuses and bonus review information. Many sites have a total and obvious bias towards what sites they are referring you to. Imagine fox and other big USA television network news vs what you see on the news on BBC. For instance, I knew ages ago that there was a credit crisis and that the stock market was starting to crash because I watch and listen to alternate non-primetime news. Sites online have affiliates that promote them by linking to them. Whenever they get a link that is clicked, they either get a portion of what is made, or a paid amount right on the spot. This is great and should provide a nice example of customer service. Much like big box retail stores, I think that customer service is increased greatly whenever a commission is paid. The problem is, most big box stores have products that are worthwhile and won’t crap out on you the second they can. However, with online casinos and casino bonus providers, there is a ton of junk that you have to be able to wade through to get to the really good stuff. One of the key providers of inside information for me is Affiliate Guard Dog. They have a ton of information, but it can take a while to search through to get to the real answer, so be patient. This is where affiliates go when casinos screw them over or their customers. Affiliates are still pissed when a casino messes with their customers, but they don’t want to keep any future money makers from depositing because if it all works out they still will continue to make money. Also, I find that when a casino is really going south, they always screw over their affiliates before anyone else. It doesn't announce to the public that you are going broke, or have serious internal issues that you need to deal with. That being said, per my experience, this is a great site to tell what the casino experts really think about a casino and not just the fluff that they pass you to get you to click a link and sign up. Also, another source that has been extremely useful is player preferred's casino bonus list. When looking for a casino reviews, I tend to use their page as well. They clearly are affiliates, but often flame the sites that are listed on their page leading me to believe they are more interested in providing the review service and having happy customers that return as a means of income – instead of tricking you into clicking that one link and having a bad experience/not ever coming back. I don’t understand why more sites don’t provide this as a service instead of as a greedy half-assed black market attempt. While there are many sites out there that are horrible, there are just as many trying to keep things clean and run a solid business. Learn from these materials and you will have a great time without getting a total headache out of the deal. That is all for today, make sure to check out my holiday bonus post as well, see ya soon.

Casino Verification Resources

Hello everyone, today I plan on giving you the tools you need in order to find out if a specific casino should be considered a legit form of entertainment, or one of the many scams that seem to have floated their way into the casino scene lately. There are several ways that you can detect if a casino is not what they say they are. Here is a list of tall-tale signs that you should be making your exit quickly:

1.) The casino has an item in their terms of service and it seems to be contradicted. If you are playing a game or even download the casino before depositing and notice that there are games listed to be able to be played that are not part of the promotion that is a bad thing. You should NOT be able to play them while the bonus is active. Also, if there are statements in the casino software itself or anywhere else officially posted that contradict these rules.

2.) If you contact support and they seem to know nothing about the casino. You want a casino that has in house support and is not confused about rules that have been set forth. Normally, when things start to go bad, support starts to contradict rules that the casino has instilled.

3.) There are tons of rules that seem to protect the casino against any kind of malfunction, but there are none that protect a user in any way. Definitely, GET OUT. Do not attempt to play on this kind of site, a contract should have a benefit between both parties and if they are guarantee nothing, but expect the world in return please do not play at their online establishment.

Alongside these rules there are other sites that can help you benefit. Affiliate guard dog is a nice site that gives you some great insight into what casinos have poor business practices. Also, LCB and many smaller blogs are great sources to find out what players REALLY think about these casino giants. That being said, not all online casinos or even most are scams. There is a much greater incentive to keep business and make money the normal way. Losing reputation is a nightmare for most casinos and so it shouldn't be very hard to find out which casinos are not responding to online requests to make things right. There are so many casinos online that my recommendation is, when in doubt, don't. That's all for Casino Informant today, good luck and have fun at the casinos!

Online Casinos and Randomness

Many casinos are ripoffs these days. It seems like anywhere you go they want to treat you like you are Forest Gump. Well, I am not stupid and know what's going on. The great and powerful OZ does not live online and they need to stop acting like they are. Casino Informant is aimed at providing a community that supports and demands online casinos that either provide proof of randomness hashes, or openly disclose what kind of number generator they are using. Since these are supposed to simulate truly random numbers they should have no problem backing it up with what software they use. The fact is, many casinos do not have an incentive to let you win. They will blast you like a rat any change they get. Let's start with the initial inputs, many 'seeds' or the starting data used to create truly random numbers can be made at several online generators including but not limited to:  radioactive decay, thermal noise, shot noise, avalanche noise in Zener diodes, clock drift, the timing of actual movements of a hard disk read/write head, and radio noise. Also, we need to know what kind of pseudo random number generator they are using and that it is cryptologically considered significant. With these being met, you can easily prove what inputs were made and that the output from the day before was accurate. I could for instance visit a sit and look at my bets from the previous day. They could show the input before generation, the hash, and the output. Have you noticed that sometimes on a site you will be and the answer will be generated almost immediately (bet or loss). Other times it seems like it takes forever for the program to decide if you have won or lost. This should not be the case, with keys of the same length and an algorithm that is not discriminatory, the amount of time to calculate such output should remain the same. If you are doing nothing this should not happen and DEFINITELY errors should not happen. Though things can happen according to latency and ping, you shouldn’t see a noticeable difference on almost every bet. I’m very reserved with who I trust and plan on doing much research before referring anyone directly in the future for you. Stay tuned, I'll be setting up several articles to discuss what tall tale signs to look for. Most casinos that have serious problems have several symptoms.... my next article will dissect them in detail.
