    So I'm reading my emails and some how Simon got through my spam defense team:eek:.
    Since he is pretty much answering some questions to two of my posts here it just creeped me out. I am sure its just a coincedence but how did this guy get my email addy???
    Have yall gotten this email?



    Hi, this is the third installment to some of the current questions some
    of you might have about online casinos.
    I have added a list of some casinos that are currently using the new
    law in the US to delay payments. If you know of any more 'rogue' casinos,
    please let me know and I will investigate as much as possible.

    Are bonuses randomly triggered?
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Yes, in the case of a reputable casino they are randomly triggered....
    to a certain extent.
    The casino sometimes 'seed' the bonus meaning that they cannot be won
    before a certain time and must be won after a certain time.
    This is more noticeable in the case of progressive jackpots, you will
    notice that most jackpots are won around a certain value, ($20.000 or
    $1.000.000 for example), this is because the trigger time or value was
    reached.
    But technically the casino does not choose who wins bonus. It only
    makes it easier and easier to win the closer the casino gets to a certain
    target.
    I also do not know of any casino that 'choose' the country of the
    winner or if they are big players or not.

    Often some casinos advertise that the bonus 'must be won this week-end'
    this is because they know that the computer has been instructed to
    randomly pay someone who gets close to the trigger value or time, (normally
    on week-end).

    Loan account
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Another note about bonuses and progressives, some casinos will not pay
    out a certain bonus/progressive until an amount has been 'made' from
    the game, (typically 20% to 50% of the bonus).
    This is sometimes called the 'loan account'; until that loan has been
    paid back the bonuses/progressives will not be won by anyone.
    Of course the casino hopes to make a lot more than the loan amount,
    (about 500%), but that is their way of making sure that they don't pay out
    before they get to make some money.

    What game is most profitable?
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    This is another common question, because everyone seems to have their
    own little 'techniques' for each game.
    But, as already mentioned, while no casino game played normally will
    make you a winner in the long run, there are several speeds at which you
    can lose.
    Games like Roulette take longer per spins, but you usually spend more
    on them than on the slot machines.

    To make matters worse, each casinos have different rules for each
    games, so it is very hard, (if not impossible), to say what game is likely
    to offer the better odds, because the blackjack rules in one casino
    might not be the same at another, (do they hit on soft 17?, can you split
    on any 2 cards? Can you surrender?).

    Nonetheless, as a general principle, if you want to lose money at the
    slowest possible rate, play blackjack using what game experts call
    "basic strategy."

    In contrast, roulette is a money-burner because of the amount you spend
    per spins and the odds are clearly on the side of the casino.
    Craps doesn't help you either. Rolling a 7, has an even money payoff
    that delivers a 1.41% edge to the house. The single-roll bets are just
    ridiculous: an 'any 7' bet pays 4:1 and gives the house a whopping 16%
    edge.

    Online Slots, on the other hand can offer the best odds, but that's
    really up to the casino.
    They can setup the reel to offer payouts ranging from 90% to 99%.
    Most reputable online casinos will offer very high percentages,
    (meaning you should loose less), in the region of +96% to +99%. This is
    because of the competition between casinos themselves, they need to be known
    to be high payers.
    Some new casinos even set their machines to be at 102% or even 106%,
    meaning you cannot loose with those machines.

    There are a lot of systems, (like doubling your money after each loss
    or the Martingale method). Those don't really work either for various
    reasons, (one of them been the upper betting limit imposes by any
    casinos).

    A small note about blackjack, although it offers you the best odds,
    (apart from some slot games), card counting is not really possible online,
    it is not illegal to count cards at all; it is just not possible to do
    it.

    Having said that, my two favorite games are Blackjack and Poker, poker
    can be a lot of fun if you join a good table, even online. Some tables
    can cheat, but after a while you know what casinos are the best.

    NETeller going from bad to worse?
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Regrettably the NETeller news that online players really want to hear -
    when their funds currently frozen by the embattled e-wallet are to be
    released - was not available.
    At the time of writing this newsletter it looks like NETeller has no
    immediate plan to release the frozen funds.

    There was a press release at the end of march about a possible
    agreement between NETeller and the US government that sounded promising but
    some accounts are still frozen.
    The announcement claims that all accounts should be released within the
    next 75 days, (or at least make another announcement about it).
    See You must register/login in order to see the link. and
    You must register/login in order to see the link. for
    more on the mater.

    Sadly we will not know more until the middle of June, but it looks like
    everyone will get paid in the end.

    Bad casinos?
    ~~~~~~~~~~~
    We have had reports or casinos not paying out, we are looking into it
    and hopefully we will know more in the near future. All those casinos
    are using the new laws in the US to delay payments. I cannot see any good
    reason for them to do that.

    - All Jackpots casino
    - Grand Prive
    - Blackjack Ballroom.
    - Blackjack Casino
    - Golden palace Casino
    - Casino Kingdom
    - English Harbor,
    - big dollar casino
    - Lucky Pyramid Casino

    Other casino reported.
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    - Golden Palace, (the old Golden Casino), they seem to be under new
    ownership and not doing too well.
    - Intertops casino, don't seem to be limiting players from the states
    that prohibit online gambling.

    More questions
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    As always, please keep sending me any technical questions you might
    have and I will try and answer as many as I can in the next newsletter.

    Regards,

    Simon Goodman

    Some harvesting that was! Does "unsubscribe" work or is it a scam to verify the address? Anyone tried?

    I haven't Simmo. BTW, how did he get through your spam blocker, otherwise known as Fort Knox? I'm pretty sure it asked me for my DNA and an eyescan when I emailed you. :p

    He obviously hit the authorisation manually. I can program it to only allow people who meet certain criteria through. It's clever - it works on preceding rumours ;)

    I tried the 'unsubscribe' today.

    Since about 2 months ago, I'm seeing so much SPAM for v:AL:s, Canadian prescription drugs, weight loss (and gain), wrinkles (what are those??), student loans, 'FREE' money, costa rica property for sale, PeNls enlargement, and even toe fungus(!?) that I figure if Creepy Simon feeds my email to a spammer maybe some of this $hit will start bouncing back. I'm already getting more than 100 spam emails per day in that one Hotmail account (which was primarily used for online casino signups)-- what's another hundred or so?

    I'll let ya'll know if I get flooded with 'fresh' spam from clicking the unsub button.
