Global Player Casino
I would like to introduce you this week
to a very nice on-line casino, that I enjoy playing day after day.
It's extremely important to be able to trust the fairness and honesty of an
on-line casino and after having won so many sessions, this casino is
becoming one of my favorites. It is the
Global Player Casino
and we'll see now why I like them so much.
You know I'm a Roulette enthusiast.
Many people wouldn't play Roulette because of the high house advantage
(5.26%), or they would prefer other table games where the odds are lower
such as Craps or Baccarat. But in
Global Player Casino,
not only they have French Roulette with single zero, which already reduces
the house odds to 2.63%, but they also have the "La Partage" rule, with
which you get to keep half of your bet value on an even bet such as on
Red/Black, High/Low and Even/Odd when the zero shows up. This reduces
the house edge by another half to 1.315%.
When the La Partage rule applies, the
famous "James Bond" bet is not a wise bet: In "Casino Royale" Bond declares
his favorite bet to be a wager of 100,000 francs on both the first and
second dozen. This bet covers the numbers 1 to 24 and pays 100,000 francs.
If, however, the zero wins, Bond loses all his money. The more sensible bet
would be to place 150,000 francs on the low numbers 1-18 and 50,000 francs
on the six numbers 19-24. This bet wins exactly the same amount as Bond's
original bet, but if the zero wins, he would keep 75,000 francs of his
even-money bet on 1-18 instead of losing all 200,000 francs.
You will also love the game interface and
the highly advanced graphics. With the beautifully animated roulette
wheel, the sound effects, the croupier voice, announce window, etc. you will
feel in a real casino.
In order to participate in the Blackjack
Tournament, all you will need is your Global Player account.

To give the multi player games an
additional touch of reality, players who are sitting together at a multi
player table can chat with one another.
Global-Player Casino offers multi player
roulette and blackjack tables where players can play and chat together just
like in a real casino. Multi player games give you the real casino feeling
not only because you will play in real time, but also because you can watch
the other players placing their bets and receiving their winnings. However,
if you prefer less action and a game that you can play at your own pace,
they also provide single player games.
Blackjack is a quite simple and
straightforward game. However, over the years, certain variations to the
rules of the game have evolved. Global-Player Casino offers you a
representative selection of blackjack rule variations from casinos around
the world. Expert players will note that they have refrained from including
features that put the player at a significant disadvantage, such as
"dealer's blackjack always wins" or "dealer wins ties".

This game is a recent addition to blackjack tradition. It is being praised
for being more fun than normal blackjack because of all the additional
winning possibilities. Player's blackjack wins over dealer's blackjack and
pays 3:2. Player wins 21 ties. Dealer hits on soft 17. Double down on any
card count and any number of cards. A non-busted doubled hand can be
surrendered, keeping the initial bet. Splits up to 4 hands, re-split Aces
possible. Double down after split possible. There is a special bonus for
some non-doubled 21-valued hands:
A five-card 21 pays 3:2, a six-card 21 pays 2:1 and a seven-card 21 pays
6-7-8 or 7-7-7 in mixed suits pays 3:2
6-7-8 or 7-7-7 in the same suit pays 2:1
6-7-8 or 7-7-7 in spades pays 3:1
Finally, if a player has three suited 7s and the dealer also shows a 7 of
the same suit, the player wins a jackpot of $1,000.
To balance all these advantages, all 10's are removed from the card decks.
This game is played with 6 decks.
How GPC achieves true randomness:
Random events are the real basis for every game of chance. The players bet
on the outcome of a game which cannot be predicted because the result is
random and does not follow any rules or algorithms. At first sight, a series
of random numbers has no particular set of properties - they are just
numbers. Sometimes a number or a couple of numbers are repeated, most of the
time they are not. It is actually impossible to prove a sequence of numbers
to be random. One can just test it for un-randomness and if a test succeeds,
the sequence is proven not to be random.
For a casino, be it traditional or a virtual casino like Global-Player, it
is absolutely essential that the outcome of the games are unpredictable. In
traditional casinos, there are various ways to assure the unpredictability
of results, and each casino game uses a different method: the physical
randomness of the roulette wheel, the untraceable shuffling of cards, etc.
But what kind of a random number generator can produce truly random numbers
for an internet casino? Obviously, it cannot be a roulette wheel.
Global-Player Casino uses hardware devices based on the quantum mechanical
uncertainty of tunneling electrons, which is, in its principle,
unpredictable and thus yields really random results.
Each time you place a real money wager at
the Global-Player Casino, you will receive Comp Points, no matter if your
bet has won or lost. When you collect enough Comp Points, they will be
automatically converted to bonus chips.
|It is not always
good to be a forerunner. This is particularly true in the computer age.
Global-Player Casino goes online at a time when the Internet and
everything related to it is no longer in a trial phase but is turning
into a mature technology. This allows them to surpass the quality of
what others have done before them. By taking advantage of new and
evolving possibilities, they are simply better. This goes for their
service, their staff, their security standard and, last but not least,
for the quality of their software. They are one of the finest
Internet Casinos around.

It is important to note that their
Roulette limits are far higher than anywhere else in the Internet.
When I entered the $1 minimum Roueltte table, the maximum was set to $1000.
When I entered the $10 minimum table, the maximum was set to $4000.
Nothing stops you also from navigating from a low minimum to a high maximum
table expanding your range from $1 to $4000. Note only that the
outside bets are $5 minimum, which still gives you a wide range, if you
happen to use progressions.
you can even find archives of the last 5 year's Roulette spin results.
You can download them and use them in your tests and simulations.
It's really a very nice on-line casino.
I won 63 sessions there in the last 3 days, using my very simple betting
selection from the KISS system used for Roulette and
a very mild progression used in Superior Roulette
playing on the French wheel.
