How do progressive slots work in an online casino? How is the best way to win at it?
How do they calculate the size of the progressive jackpot?

Snowhite, progressive machines start with a jackpot of say 5000. For every $1.00 bet a certain percentage is then added to the jackpot. Usually this is about 1 or 2%.

If nobody played then the jackpot would stay the same. The idea is to get a bunch of players to play and increase the jackpot.

The only downfall to progressive machines is that they tend to have lower middle payouts.
The larger the jackpot climbs the better the odds are that you will hit it.

When I play progressive poker machines I look for a jackpot of at least 6,000, which is 2,000 more than a normal royal flush.

Hit mob, I had a casino that i played at all the time over charge me over 1500.00. When I called them they said it could not happen. I had to fax them a copy of my bank statement to prove that twice I was charged for the same 1000 purchase. They made it sound like they could not have done that. In a week they called me on the phone to say it had happened and the 1000 plus 250 had been put into my players account. I hit the cashout button faster then you could dig a hole.

Then I got my bank statement for the previous month and they did they did the same damn thing. This is a casino that I have recommended hundreds of times here and everywhere else. I learned real quick that you have to keep track of all of your purchases, dates, declines (if any). I had the lucky nugget call me one time about a 100 buy in that was denied, but they collected anyway.

Starnet did the same thing to me for 60.00. Took them over a month to catch it. We have to be real careful, maybe that is the newest scam

Steve, Have you ever played in a land based casino's slot tournament. Are there different kinds? Any suggestions on winning one?

I got invited to play at the Taj Mahal in AC for a slot tournament. Is it worth my time and effort?

I do not think you have crossed over. We should dig hit mob a big hole. Good luck with the casino

Ricky, The Taj, my favorite playground. They have two types of slot tournaments and I have tried them both. first is every thursday night it is a free one. They have 75 machines, you draw numbers to see what machine you get. You play for 15 minutes and you have your score. Winner takes home 20,000.

The other is the 250,000 slot invitational. You pay 1500 to get in. Same deal, you draw to see what machine you get. You play two rounds. When your done with each round you get your points in cash and 400 when your done. So they tell you that you get your 1500 back.

The trick to a slot tournament is to play in the free one. There is no system, all you do is press the spin button over and over.

Good luck, and let us know how you did.

Ricky, you should never ever threaten the hit mob with digging a hole. He will dog you from now on. He dogged me so bad that now i post without my name. He is the hole digger, not the hole filler.

Gentlemen:

The following was posted on the gamblingmagazine.com home page:
**********
Starnets own system administrators admitted that they were running the "illegal game servers" in Vancouver to supply a faster connection to a few favorite licensees. They also admitted that the child pornography material was on their servers.

There is no doubt they were also taking bets from Canada.
*************

Is is not legal to take "bets" from the US and from Canada? Casino bets that is. I'm not speaking of sportbook bets. I thought that the Kyl bill in the US no loger forbade us gamblers from gambling on internet casinos. Just that an internet casino could not operate from the US.

Please excuse my ignorance here, I'm turning to the real pros here .. You all to help me to answer this question. And I thought that it was Ok to have a casino server operating in Canada. Again, is the illegal activity that gamblingmagazine.com speaking of "sports bets" or online casino action as well?

Thanks. I appreciate any help you can provide here.

I forgot to ask .. Does anyone have any information on exactly how much Cryptologic software costs? What the splits are (if any)? Terms? and so-forth? I keep hearing about how terrific their software product is. Thanks again for the help and advice.

Josh,
I think you should know that the url you placed for gambling magazine is in fact the web site for a Mr Levy who owned a casino well several of them actually he fell out big time withstarnet and is using this website as a tool for revenge to vent his anger and spread gossip about starnet
Starnet have used pornography as a way of earning cash in the early days they made a fortune but turned there attention to gambling in the form of casinos whilst we cannot blame them for wanting to make money and good luck to them they have found a good earner in casinos' I am led to believe they have stopped their pornography business (not really sure) as for child pornography this is a disease of the internet and anyone finding such a site should call the police in their country of residence and they will pass this onto the correct authorities (anyone looking for such a site should be hung from the neck till dead )
dont believe everything you read on Levy's website although some of it could be true, Starnet have (again if you believe everything you read) been left to pay all of Levy's casino players cashouts possibly by way of a goodwill gesture
