I was really overjoyed to discover a few months ago that you can actually play live roulette online. I love the game and have played in Casinos all over the world from New York to Monte Carlo and yes I do know its not the best odds to gamble on but for me it's by far the most enjoyable. Actually to my circle of rather dodgy friends I am probably regarded as a font of knowledge of one thing and one thing only and that is online roulette and casinos. In my opinion there's simply no better game and if you can dress up smartly , go to a glamorous casino with a few hundred bucks to throw around there's no better feeling, and yes pretend your James Bond for a few hours with a martini. In fact generally this is the problem I have with online casinos, a complete lack of atmosphere yes they are often very well done and there are some fabulous variations - I quite like the 3 wheel variants you can find in many casinos, but the problem is that you still feel like you're playing a computer game. Although I'm sure none of the online casinos I play roulette in cheat you're still at the mercy of a computer algorithm at the end of it. When you put your stack on odd and the ball lands on even you'll be cursing the computer and not lady luck. This is why I was so overjoyed to find out that you could play roulette online and completely live. Anyway before I tell you about that I want to make sure that anyone who tries gambling in an online casino for the first time avoids these mistakes.

There are two main types of roulette wheel, the French or European Wheel and the American wheel. The number distribution on them is slightly different but the important point is that the American Wheel has an extra zero. This makes a huge difference to the house edge, the advantage the house has over you, always look for a single zero and never ever touch a table on the internet that has two zeros.

Whatever your game, most online casinos have free games to try out the software. It's always worth having a quick go on these to check the rules and make sure you understand everything. But if you find yourself winning very easily, I urge you to find another casino online, if they can manipulate the payout levels of the free game to entice you in I simply woudn't trust them.

Please don't do this, roulette is a fun game but with any form of gambling you need your wits about you. The online roulette game I'll show you shortly will demonstrate the effect of alcohol on your average punter. Seriously though don't play drunk you can get reckless and end up losing a bundle and betting more than you can afford. Play roulette make some money walk away then get the beer in!

So OK I promised to tell you about this casino where you can play online live roulette. It's called Dublinbet and you play at a real casino, in real time via a videofeed from a Casino in Fitzwilliam Street in Dublin. I've put some stuff about it in the link below but it's the most fun I've had in ages the free game is even fun as you can watch all the other players and what they're doing.

The jackpot pay outs on video slot machines are one of the things that make each slot different from its cousin. Some slot machine games offer relatively low jackpot prizes, but make up for that with lots of smaller prizes in free spins or bonus games. Other slots go slightly the other way – you can spend longer without getting too large a prize – and then bang! Out comes the big payout.
The biggest payouts you can get on video slots are on the progressive jackpots. These slots take a small amount from each spin to add to the jackpot. When they are networked over several machines (live) or across a group of casinos (online) then there really can be life changing sums won in a single spin. One player in August this year won €943,000 on a slot machine spin at the Maria Casino, on the game Arabian Knights. As we said – life changing sums of money.
Video slots, or any form of slots style game, will tell you how the payouts work. You need to click the button with “pay table” or something similar to check out the how things work. There are plenty of slots to play out there, so if you want to shoot for huge sums on slots, make sure you look carefully – and change your slot if needs be.
Jackpots are not the only way to win big on slots though – bonus games and free spins can all add up to serious prizes. But if you really want to gamble for that big payout, you simply have to play progressive jackpot slots.
