Understanding gambling slang

As featured on Sloto Store

They say that gambling is as old as civilization itself. In its long history players and casino runners have come up with a lot of expressions regarding games or actions that are not common currency in our everyday language.

In this article you’ll learn some of the most popular casino slang so you are ready next time you talk or chat with a gambling fanatic.

Action: The amount of money wagered (put into action) by a player during an entire playing session.  Example: How much action did you put into that casino slot machine today?

Bankroll: The total money a player has available for gambling. Example: After winning that jackpot prize, I doubled my bankroll.

Casino advantage (also House Edge): The advantage (often represented by a percentage) that the casino has over a player. Example: Blackjack has a casino advantage of 0.05%.

Deuce: The number two in dice or cards. Example: Deuces are wild in this video poker machine.

Expected Win Rate (also Return to player, Pay-back or Pay-out percentage): The total amount (often a percentage) that you are expected to win back in the long run. Example: This casino slot has 99% Win Rate, so you’re likely to win $99 back of every $100 you wager this year.

Holding Your Own: Neither winning nor losing, breaking even. Example: I was able to hold my own after a week in Las Vegas.

Martingale: Betting system based on doubling-up after each loss. Example: I always use the Martingale when playing Roulette.

Paint card (also Face card): In poker or card games, Jack, Queen, and King cards. Example: I need a paint card to complete my Blackjack hand!

Snake Eyes: In Craps, when you roll a two, because the two dice look like eyes and they are bad news for the shooter. Example: I shot 3 Snake Eyes in a row, I need a break!

Whale: A high-roller player that makes very large bets. Example: This table is for whales only, minimum bet $100

A short history of St. Patrick’s day (As featured on www.slotomagazine.com)

Today millions around the world celebrate St. Patrick’s day but few know the origins of such a celebrated tradition. On March 17th the streets in many cosmopolitan cities such as New York and Chicago will harbor hundreds of thousand participants, as they march through a city painted green.

But how did it all begin?

It has to begin with the man himself, St. Patrick who, contrary to commonsense, was not born in Ireland but in Britain that was under control by the Roman Empire. He was kidnapped by Irish raiders and taken to Ireland where he converted to Christianity and spent much of his life there as a missionary.

Did you know that St. Patrick was not born in Ireland? 

He died on March 17th, 461 AD to be forgotten for centuries, until legend and myth grew around his name and Ireland adopted him as its patron saint.  A common legend tells of St. Patrick’s grand influence in Ireland by driving away all snakes from the island.

St. Patrick is reputed to have taught about the Holy Trinity with the three leaves of a shamrock (or three-leafed clover). In the 18th century Irish folk starting wearing shamrocks on their coats, to honor their Irish and Christian origins. Soon after, the Irish starting wearing entire suits in green.

In the 1840’s there was a dreadful famine in Ireland, forcing many to migrate to the United States of America. Over half a million Irish reached New York harbors in this period known as the Potato Famine.

With a strong Irish community in New York, the first St. Patrick’s parade was celebrated there in 1762. Today it is the Big Apple’s largest parade with over 200,000 people participating in the parade while enjoyed by close to 3 million spectators!

As many as 90% of Americans celebrate this date every year!

A new generation of casino slots

We are all familiar with how to win while playing a casino slot machine. Align identical symbols on a pay-line and you expect to receive a payout. For decades this has been the traditional way but this has changed thanks to All Ways Pays (AWP) casino slots!

Online casino slot technology has developed a new type of casino slot with no pay-lines at all and it couldn’t get any simpler. All you have to do is land identical symbols from left to right on the reels. It doesn’t matter where they appear on each reel. Some All Ways Pays casino slots also pay for same symbols running the opposite way, from right to left!

There are clear advantages with this type of casino slots. First, as opposed to traditional casino slots with pay-lines, you don’t pay for each individual pay-line. Your total bet covers all possible pay-out combinations. Secondly, it becomes much easier to keep track of winning combinations as they arise. With some video casino slots having up to 50 pay-lines, it is hard to memorize all possible combinations. With All Ways Pays, just keep looking for those identical symbols from left to right as they emerge.

The number of winning combinations is quite large for this new type of casino slots. For a 5-reel video casino slot with 3 visible symbols per each reel, will have a total of 243 different ways of paying out. The 6-reel All Ways Pays casino slots have a total of 729 payout combinations. And the 5-reel video casino slots with 4 visible symbols on each reel have 1024 different payout combinations!
