Welcome to the forum manblue...:thumbsup:

I think you are going to have a hard time though finding the bonuses for roulette and blackjack that will meet your criteria that you have listed above...usually those games will require a larger wager requirement than most slot games do.

Manblue: If you are relatively new to casino bonuses, you should really check out aka23's web page. It is one of the best there is when it comes to these things. Excellent reading material as well as the bonus listings.

Just wish I found it before.. :thumbsup:

Welcome to the forum manblue:thumbsup:

What you have witnessed is cloaked spam. aka, stop it. most of your posts are about selling. Either contribute, or dont. You may give 0.002323 percentages but your expertise is nothing more than a cut n' paste job. I am a decent blackjack player (by no means the best) and consider your posts an insult.

manblue, sad as it may seem, as a canadian, avoid sites that accept US players. Strong UK brands are a good starting point but no guarantee. Dont be sucked in by bonus offers.

will hill, ladbrokes, etc. go for sites held accountable but this industry is a shambles at the moment. Just chose software you like and play for fun

How can one be better BJ player than other? I consider my self as the best blackjack player on the planet, as there is always only one best strategy for each versio of blackjack.

its a skill game. The skill aspect is illiminated online so you are basically limiting your losses. live, it comes down to card counting. Basic strategy is only the starting point. True skill can only be achieved in live games. I will give you a crash course, if low cards have come out, the board is hot. If high, the swing is against you. It doesnt work online and not as simple as I have outlined but that is the basics

I had the impression we were talking about online blackjack, not B&M casinos. of course, counting cards is totally different subject.

And back to the OP, aka's link is to good start-off.

If I understand you correctly, you are claiming numbers on my site are unoriginal and cut & pasted, and I lack the expertise to determine numbers myself. This is a ridiculous and obviously false claim, which I find extremely insulting. Since we are talking about BJ and you mentioned percentages, I'm guessing the you are referring to BJ house edge percentages. The house edge values listed were based on my house edge calculator (an original program I wrote) and confirmed via independent simulation. The numbers cover softwares/games not listed elsewhere, so there is no source to cut & paste from. I have proved myself as having the expertise to determine data myself on numerous occasions -- both on this forum and my site. Quite a few other "decent blackjack players" disagree with your feelings and list the site in their recommended resources list, including Wizard of Odds and Stanford Wong (their websites). And for the record, I generally round decimals to the hundredths place.

We can agree to differ. my six year old niece can use a calculator. It doesnt make her an expert in blackjack. I consider most of your posts nothing more than self promotion and often inaccurate.

Are you telling me that your posts are anything more than cloaked spam?

Are you telling me that, you are a winning player?

For the record I am stating that the majority of your posts are nothing more than self promotion. I am stating that you are not an expert in this field. Next month I will invite a true expert in this field to explain the game to you. He runs a team of card counters and travels around Europe. His expertise is real and we have had a few discussions over this. Do you honestly want the risk of being exposed?

I am stating that your expertise is a cut n' paste job. I believe you can count to 21, anything beyond that is debatable.

Again...

This is a ridiculous and obviously false claim, which I find extremely insulting.

:lolup:

One thing is obvious about your posts and it has little do do with blackjack

I didn't just use a calc. I created an original BJ house edge calc with more options than any existing one I have seen, such as listing stand deviation and both per hand & per wager outputs. And I use this calc to save time, instead of manually determining house edge for new games. Could your 6-year-old niece due this same? Could you do the same?

I consider most of your posts nothing more than self promotion and often inaccurate.
Let's get specific. What is a post that you consider inaccurate? I think my accuracy quite high. It is quite rare for anyone to correct my posts for having a mistake.

Are you telling me that your posts are anything more than cloaked spam?
I have over 2000 reputation points and nearly 400 thanked posts on this forum. If all my posts were all spam as you claim, I would not have a high forum rep.

Are you telling me that, you are a winning player?
I've made quite a significant net gain... consistently winning every month I have played. Are you telling me that you cannot win over time using bonuses?

I am stating that you are not an expert in this field. Next month I will invite a true expert in this field to explain the game to you. He runs a team of card counters and travels around Europe.

If "this field" means online BJ or online casino bonuses, then believe I am as knowledgeable as nearly all who post on these forums. Some original BJ accomplishments (not cut & paste) include:
-Wrote first strategy I've seen for optimizing per wager (minimizing loss over a fixed wagering requirement), rather than per hand
-First to post house edge and strategy data for dozens of online variations
-First to post optimal strategy and house edge for some unique BJ-like games, such as 21 Duel (website link on 21 duel page)
-Wrote in my opinion, the best house edge and strategy calcs for the game available
-First standard deviation calc I've seen, first tables showing how SD changes with rules I've seen, first to discuss SD per wager, ...
-First I've seen to mathematically analyze various unique situations, such as speed vs variance for single vs multihand
-First to offer simulation of various online variations
-Hired as a consultant to design & analyze several original BJ games by game makers who were impressed with website

Is the expert you are inviting to explain blackjack on par with Wizard of Odds or Stanford Wong? As mentioned earlier, both say quite positive things about my site. They wouldn't do this, if it was just a "cut & paste job."

aka, I had a couple of years winning at blackjack consistently. I am expert enough to know I am no expert & quit ahead of the game.

I am a winning poker player, have taught others to do the same. Again I am no expert in this field but know enough to hold my own in a conversation.

I appologize if you think my posts towards you are insulting, I just consider your posts too spammy to take seriously.

I don't see where GaryWatsons attacks are coming from, they are at the least not called for in this thread! :confused:

A new user asked for a list of bonuses - aka23 provided the list custom made for his needs. And then GaryWatson starts hammering away on aka23, insulting his knowledge and telling him that his work is rubbish!?!

Not even considering the fact that aka has one of the best bonus listings and calculation tools around, the time and place for this is wrong! :mad:

aka23 - You have my full support here!

slafs, your avator indicates that you are a webmaster. My real issue is not with aka's claimed knowledge. My issue is about spam. just because a few webmasters decide to team up, set up posts,etc irks me as much as my replies have touched a raw nerve with your group.

I might be wrong about my judgement, i might no be.

aka, I do not believe you make a healthy profit playing the game but I base that on your posts. You can try to baffle people with science all you want but when it comes down to it, you seem nothing more than a self promoter using this forum.

Online Casinos Online Casinos - Information, Experiences, questions and such. This is no place for ads or cloaked promos. Shills and spammers be warned

I will take a step back now but I thought it was worthwhile offering a different opinion.

I can see both arguments here. It might look like aka is promoting his own website, but in my opinion, as others have said, he has a great website (and forum) which is helpful to both beginners and pros alike. A long time ago someone suggested his site to me and it was, and still is excellent. I've found bonuses on there which I hadn't read about anywhere else. Considering the amount of reps who visit this forum, if we all talked about what bonuses were good, which games to play etc they wouldn't last five minutes. But as his site is a bit more out of the way, it counters that problem.

The OP had a request which aka was suited to answer. I think it's great that people like him set up these websites as they prove a great resource. To call his posts spam is a bit harsh. We all know what true spam looks like, and what happens to the spammers, so if aka was thought to be one he wouldn't still be here!

There's quite a number of webmasters on here, half of whom I've never visted their sites. Having a link in your signature is all well and good, but it doesn't mean anyone is going to visit it.

Well Gary, you are way off, I am no webmaster, and how you managed to get that indication out of my avatar is beyond me. Following that, the rest of you "evidence/ranting" pretty much crumbles. The "group" you refer to is most likely all in your head. You obviously don't do much research before you throw things like this out.

The nerve you are hitting at my end is the fact that you are trying to nullify aka23s knowledge and contribution on this forum. As KMAY87 points out, aka23s page should be seen as an addition to this forum, not a threat by any means.

Thanks for all your replies guys!

But GaryWatson I think your attack was uncalled for because I was looking for info just like that. And I am glad aka23 posted.

I just have a couple more questions:

If I am trying to make money of bonus offers, is blackjack the best game to play? And if so, which blackjack version has the lowest house edge?

Is it really possible to earn a profit with bonus offers in the long run?
And I read on KasinoKings website, that he is making consisten profit with bonus offers and playing slots. How likely is it that you are going to walk away with profit when playing slots? Blackjack?

And please recommend me ONE casino, that has the BEST bonus offer right now. (And with best I don't mean the largest bonus offer, I mean where I am most LIKELY to walk away with profit:) )

When blackjack is allowed and weighted the same as other games, it is usually the best choice for the style of play you describe. Note that many bonuses do not permit BJ or weight it much lower than other games.

Which version has the lowest house edge depends on which gaming software you are using. The lowest house edge overall is probably Boss Media SD BJ, assuming it is still at Two Sixes (all other Boss casinos dropped the game long ago). VueTec computerized BJ also has a slight player edge.
Is it really possible to earn a profit with bonus offers in the long run?
And I read on KasinoKings website, that he is making consisten profit with bonus offers and playing slots. How likely is it that you are going to walk away with profit when playing slots? Blackjack?
Yes, it is possible to earn a profit. I have calcs and simulators that list the percent chance of a profit for a particular bonus. Slots have a much higher house edge and variance than BJ, so when weighted the same and making low variance bets, you have a better chance of coming out ahead with BJ.

And please recommend me ONE casino, that has the BEST bonus offer right now. (And with best I don't mean the largest bonus offer, I mean where I am most LIKELY to walk away with profit:) )
The best depends on your particular situation and values. As I new player, you might prefer a small bonus with a low wagering requirement, rather than a larger bonus with a greater potential for profit. You might also prefer a quality software that is fun to use over a superior bonus on poor software that is frustrating to use. To illustrate my point, the positives and negatives for 3 of the better ones are listed below:

Coral (25, 5xB) -- Small bonus with low wagering so good place to start out, poor software
Littlewoods (100, ~14xB) -- Outstanding bonus with low wagering, poor software, and mediocre reputation (since being acquired by 888)
William Hill ($50, 16xB) -- Higher BJ wagering than the others, but excellent software and reputation. It also is a good choice for some non-BJ games due to increased weighting (reduced wagering).

Hi

Seems like most of the better bonuses are in UK casinos?

Just wanted to mention, that as an affiliate, I've noticed some players cashing out decent wins when they play using the Superior Casino's 'casino games bonus'

I'm not really expert on this offer, as I focus entirely on slots, rather than table games. I don't play or promote table games, but rather slot offers. But just posting these on the thought that they might be pretty good (for as US casino), given that I've had players cashing out from them.

First deposit - 35x wagering requirement 50% up to $100
Second deposit - 25x wagering requirement 30% up to $300
Third deposit - 20x wagering requirement 20% up to $200

Cheers



More Detail

First bonus:

"If you deposit $50, you'll get $25 FREE - Then you play with $75!! If you deposit $200, you'll get $100 FREE - Then you play with $300!!
Please make sure that you claim your desired promotion before making a deposit, in order to play with an existing user promotion or new player signup bonus.
(Wagering requirements on the 'Casino Games' welcome bonus are 35 times the deposit + bonus before any cash-outs will be permitted.)
For example:
If you deposit $200 and get a $100 Bonus, simply multiply by 35 = $10,500 wager
The following games (and all variations) may have their bet limits modified: Let it Ride, Three Card Poker, Pai Gow, Caribbean Stud, and War.

Second bonus:

If you deposit $50, you'll get $15 FREE - Then you play with $65!! If you deposit $200, you'll get $60 FREE - Then you play with $260!!
Please make sure that you claim your desired promotion before making a deposit, in order to play with an existing user promotion or new player signup bonus.
(Wagering requirements on the 'Casino Games' 2nd deposit bonus are 25 times the deposit + bonus before any cash-outs will be permitted.)

3rd bonus:

If you deposit $100, you'll get $20 FREE - Then you play with $120!! If you deposit $200, you'll get $40 FREE - Then you play with $240!!

Only kidding, welcome.

And for the record, the attack on AKA was out of order IMHO.

Yeah - a better chance of coming away with 20% profit!
When was the last time you hit a bet x 100 win on Blackjack? :p
When was the last time you made 2067% profit from a bonus playing blackjack... Link Outdated / Removed :confused:

(Just kidding with ya - each to their own ways! ;))

Ladbrokes.
No doubt.

Your listed percentages are expressed as profit/deposit on a 400% bonus. The fraction does not consider the high percentage of the bonus, resulting in misleading numbers. For example, a casino in that group offers a 500% up to $50 sign-up bonus. When I signed up there, I made a profit of $110, so my profit/deposit was $110/$10 = 1100% profit on blackjack. I have also come out ahead on no deposit bonuses. In this instance profit/deposit is infinity. Does that mean I made an infinite % profit playing BJ?

If you want a chance of hitting a big 100x win, there are several alternative games that have a low house edge as well as a chance of a large payout. The most well known example is video poker. Full pay JoB typically has less than 1/10 the house edge of some slot games. Having said that, playing slots is fine too and is more entertaining than table games for many players. There are many bonuses with increased wagering for table games, making up for the increased house edge of slot play, such as Ladbrokes.
