BGL Lesson 42, 43, 44 are ready !!!


An amazing shoe for the long awaited Lesson 42 “Important News”! For disciples of Baccarat Great Learning, read what Master Zuan Xin has to say about killing the heresy of the gambler approach. There are folks which abandoned back to the gambling way and this cause much disappointment and pain to Master Zuan and David. Investing guru, Warren Buffet, also mentions something about habit: “The chain of habit is too weak to be felt, until it is too strong to be broken”. So it is not easy to choose the habit of player path, compare to the hedonist of gambling the way out for pleasure.

In a rare lesson conducted in English since many moons ago, we are happy to share with you Lesson 43 “Lin Hao”. See the magnificent 8 of Hearts featuring the brilliant Lin Hao. She is a very able follower and irresistible too. Do check it out as it presents many shoes from played from different casinos.

Now onto Lesson 44 “Zuan Xin Challenges Sheldon Adelson”. In the run up to the upcoming Global Gaming Expo at the Las Vegas Convention Center, Master Zuan Xin has just decided to lay down the challenge to the king of the Las Vegas Nevada casinos Mr Sheldon Adelson. Zuan Xin feels that it is time for baccarat to be known at long last as a game of skill with an element of luck being that that is what baccarat actually is.

Similarly to blackjack and to mahjong both games that are each known as a game of skill with an element of luck. In a game of skill with an element of luck as opposed to a game of pure luck, a bad player who does not know how to play cannot in the long run outperform a good player who does know how to play and has absolutely no hope of holding his or her own against the casino as the horrendous player performance numbers from Macau indicate.

Online Gambling Tips

The internet has made almost everything easily accessible from the comfort of our own homes at a mouse-click away. For people who think that going out is too much of a hassle, the internet can provide options.

For those who love gambling, but who are often bothered by casino crowds, smoke filled rooms or noisy players beside them, the online environment provides an alternative venue.

However just like gambling in a casino, online gambling also offers the risk of losing money too. The similarity of losing money if not gambling wisely can never be avoided, whether online or not. Responsible gaming and moderation and the middle path is the way. Here are 10 tips to help in your navigation in the world of gambling online.

1. Make sure that its legal to gamble online where you live. Even though gambling can be done online, it doesn’t mean you can escape the law of society. In certain countries, remote gambling has been banned and websites blocked. 

2. There are lots of online casinos out there. The problem is, it is hard to know which online casinos are legit and which ones provide great service. To prevent having a bad online gambling experience, look around first and read all about the company or website. Ask advice from your friends who’ve played online before, for a recommendation on who the best online casino is. One site to consider reviewing is this bitcoin gambling casino

3. Try the games for free first. Get a feel for it for a while. There are lots of online casinos out there that make you play for free. Play for free at the various online casinos you visit. However, dont be persuaded to play at the casino that you seem to be winning for free. It just might be a rouse to make you feel that their casino is a great place to win.

4. Find a casino with great customer support. The customer support should be always there when you need them the most. They should be easy to contact and be available 24/7.

5. Check out their pay-out options. Will they charge a fee? Some online casinos will only pay up to $5,000 dollars in a week.

6. There are some casinos that give out bonuses or free online money to new players or returning players. Do remember to read the fine print on these, because there are a minimum number of bets, before you can cash out the free money.

7. Learn more how the game is played online. Online games have some variations with their rules. The rules also vary from one online casino to the other.

8. Make sure the casino you choose protects your personal data. Instead of http: only, look for https:. The “s” stands for secure line.

9. Play the games that give you the best chances to win money. Big money.

10. Be a player, not a gambler.

In other news, 2014 will be the first full year decline in Macau stellar gambling revenue’s record since 2009. The main reason is due to China’s corruption crackdown and this sent gaming revenue to tumble 6 months in a row, with November earnings dropped by 20%.  It impacted to both the VIP & Mass Market segments and we expect more VIP rooms to be closed for extended holiday breaks. The outlook for 2015 will be downward trend with the gaming tax authority predict tax revenue to be similar to 2014 at $115 billion Patacas.

Safe Casino Gaming For All

Galaxy Macau_gaming hall_high limit_main hall

Casino Gambling, ever since it has been legislated, has become even more popular all over the world. With the growth in the number of gambling sites, Online Casino Gambling will sure become one of the favorite places in the web, as far as gamblers are concerned.

We are all aware about the risks that we are taking when it comes to Casino Gambling. There’s the probability that we will lose money, and all the succeeding consequences resulting from that. But the most basic of all the considerations a gambler would have to note is the security of the casino where they would be betting their money.

Going casino gambling involves a lot of security issues, aside from entrusting your money to the cashier. Most casinos, if not all, would require that you give them your name, address, credit card numbers, and other private information. We are all aware that these things could be used by some people to wreak havoc into our lives.

But in all fairness to the casinos, they have proven that the security features they employ makes their customers and visitors feel safer than ever to go casino gambling. There are several innovations that have been made. Most casinos have set-up video cameras to monitor each and every movement around a particular game table. This is of course accompanied by a team of surveillance personnel that constantly keeps their eyes focused on any mischievous actions from both the staff and customers. On-floor security officers are always on the look out for trouble. This also includes officers in civilian clothes.

Now, since we all know that online casino gambling is becoming a popular alternative to the traditional physical casino in Nevada, it is reasonable to ask about security issues regarding online gambling.

Some of the security issues facing people who go online casino gambling is, of course, the issue of whether their identities would remain a secret. This is one of the major concerns for online gamblers who also want the best real money casino information. Just like in the land-based casino, before you could enter a site offering online gambling, certain information would be needed in order for you to play. Information that are basically the same as the ones that they ask for in the Bellagio or Caesar’s Palace. Since we all know that these information may be used by spammers, at the very least, we should take note of whether a site’s security firewall is encrypted with at least a 128-bit SSL. The higher the bit of the encryption, the safer of course. This would ensure players that the site they are playing in is not vulnerable to hackers who want to steal credit card information and the like.

The next security issue that players must be aware of are the privacy policies employed by the web site they are playing at. Before a gambler should decide to enter a site, the privacy policy of that site should first be read. One has to make sure that all the text are easy to understand. Also, the policy should not contain any ambiguities. Although some policies may take a little of your time to read, doing so carefully, and looking for probable loopholes would ensure that your online casino gambling would be safer.

Finally, to ensure that the interests of both parties will be guaranteed, try to search for a site that offers a record of financial transactions before going casino gambling on that site. This would minimize the occurrence of problems that might potentially arise while playing online casino gambling. Any questions regarding financial transactions made would be easy to answer if a record of all the transactions done are readily available for reviewing. Just make sure that this is protected by SSL encryption as well.

Online Casinos Games

As we move further and further into the age of technology, the Internet continues to evolve and create more entertainment options almost on a daily basis. So it comes as no surprise that some of your favorite casino games can now be found in online casino domains. And perhaps one of the more popular games found in online casinos is Poker.

There are numerous online chat and game rooms devoted to casino style Poker. Oftentimes, the style of play varies from site to site. Some of the more popular types of online Poker are: Texas Holdem, Omaha Holdem, Omaha Hi-Lo, 5 Card Stud and 7 Card Stud, to name a few. Due to the fact that there are so many different online casinos featuring Poker rooms, there can be a plethora of different types of games to choose from.There are several differences between the traditional form of Poker playing and participating in an online Poker game in a virtual casino.

The first big difference is that there is a lack of the physical interaction that is so vital to a great Poker game. Body language is a big part of the game of Poker and is a missing component of online casinos. However, in contrast, players have a better chance of success in an online casino, particularly with online Poker games, as they are able to maintain more than one hand at a time.

Many times, savvy players will participate at several different tables within the online casino to increase their chances for winning. Players are also often allowed to enter into the game with more reasonable bets and are often able to catch tips and explanation with the casinos website features. This can come in handy when establishing which type of game the player would like to enter.

The list of US online casinos offer many different casino games. Just be sure to read all of the rules and regulations of each game before participating and as with any online venture, be sure that you are on a secured site, particularly when exchanging monetary information. After reviewing the online casino rules, its time to have some gambling fun!
