**Longest consecutive losing streak at BJ:
21 in a row - Cassava (Casino-On-Net) I've had some of the strangest

I am not surprised at that!

As I told you before I have had a 26 blacks in a row there. When I put on black it changed to red! I think If I continued to bet on red it would have given me blacks infinitly!

Lasseters has earned the Gamemaster's highest rating ever for an internet casino. To see his review, check his website:

The joker poker at Lasseters has a theoretical expected payout of 102.5% (with optimal play), so there's real money to be made there. I think its the highest theoretical payout of any video poker game on or off the net. Since in my experience, Lasseters runs a completely legitimate opeation
and has minimum bets as little as 1 CENT, its possible for a player with a very low bankroll to
stay in the game long enough to eventually overcome the losing streaks, and hit the royal. Then the player can increase stakes.

Since I rarely play video poker and have NEVER played joker poker, I would appreciate it if someone here could help find the optimal strategies for this game.

Dave,
Thanks for the tip on Lasseters. I assume you are interested in Joker Poker rather than Jokers Wild. The bottom line payoff is Kings or Better and Steve will run some %'s for you, but needs to know what denomination, and what their full house pays. I do very well at this game at land casinos in Nevada, but am really struggling online. It could be because I have played predominantly at the Sands and too, like the other 70 people you know, have noticed something is very very wrong there with the video poker.
Let us know so Steve can get those numbers run for you.

Hi there,
Just received my winnings from Intercasino.

I was amazed I was only allowed to withdrawal by cheque on Intercasino after ive withdrawn back on my credit card all the money ive bought through Cryptologic with the same CC, including the one ive lost on OTHER Cryptologic casino. Nice touch.
So i got right back on my CC $300 and withdrawal by cheque $2000.
They email me asking me for a fax of my CC statement, as an extra security measure ( just for my first withdrawal with them,this info me gets by phone support line).
As Ive been traveling I couldnt supply this immediately. If not for that the whole process should have taken no more than 3 work days to receive the cheque.
Arrived today with a printed date the same of my online withdrawal request.
Pity here foreign cheques take up to three weeks to cash in, and Intercasino doesnt support wire transfers.
Anyway, great service.

Thanks a lot for your help Kyla-
I'm looking for the optimal strategies for
Joker Poker.

"This is a 2-pair or better single-joker game with the following pay schedule (beginning at 2-pair): 1,2,4,7,10,20,50, 500 (wild royal), 100 (5K), 500 (natural royal). The fact that the wild royal pays the same is what makes the long-term return so high." -Gamemaster (Review of Lasseters)

kyla,
The only thing wrong with the video poker at the sands is they only offer short pay games so obviously the longer you play the more you pay and if you haven't realized that by now you probably don't play very well either. so don't rush to blame the casino for your failure to do your home work

I read where you had lost 35,000 in three different casinos. Maybe it was someone else

It might be that three different casinsos owe me
$35,000 and I am having a hard time collecting,
but even that is a facet of playing online one has to get good at

While we are on that subject, If any one is having problems with or needs some info on a casino, try this site. They did help me with one place, I haven't collected yet, but they did get the casino to respond and they keep following up too. I don't think you have to pay the $10.00 membership, but I did just because if the site gets going it will only help out all players.

Hi Jondo,

You could also let me know which casinos you're having problems with. Most are pretty quick in responding to me since this site gets a lot of traffic.

Sincerely

Bryan

Hi,

I've seen a lot of postings about free chips.

Just letting everyone know,

offers all new players a FREE $30 promotional chip, with initial deposit (as little as $10)

This is simply one of the the best sign up bonuses available.

Talk to you later,

Crystal

Hi, I found this site in an attempt to find out how the heck to get my money back from Vegas Palace Casino. I've been trying now for four weeks. They keep saying things like they don't know why the check didn't go out and that it'll go out next monday and I should get it by friday, but I never get anything. They owe me $100 credit back to my card and a check for the remainder of $329.54 and my wife (who won more than me) a check in the mail for $1290.90. They credited her account back with the original deposit of $1000. They sure didn't take this long to take my money. Will I ever get it back?
Thanks
Joe Poggi

Bali's casino is screwing me out of my bonus. I made a deposit and the 15% bonus was immediately credited to my account. After I cashed out, I received an e-mail saying that the bonus was taken out of my account to do lack of activity. I e-mail them back stating that I gave them enough action to qualify for the bonus. Thier response was that it took 3x the amount of deposit in action to qualify for the bonus. I check the bonus page on their site, and that is indeed what it said. However, this is not what it said when I made the deposit. I contacted the Wizard of Odds and he contacted Bali's asking when the rule change went into effect. They responded. The date of change was after I made my deposit and after I qualified using the original criterion. My next e-mail to Bali conmplained that they were changing the rules after the fact. Here is their response:

Dear Customer,


We have been working with this policy for over two months now,
it was not stated before on the site due to constantly changes in our
rules and regulations.
However is stated on the site that all rules, regulations, and payoffs
contained here are subject to change and revision by the management
without prior written notice.

We apologize for the inconvenience this may cause you.
If we can be of further assistance,please contact us.

Best Regards,

How can you trust this industry when the casinos can make up the rules as you go along?

Couple of other minor problems: They were sometime slow in responding to my e-mails. Some of the messages I had to send several times. They were also slow in returning my intial deposit. I received a check for my winning a week before my deposit was credited back to my account.
