Posted by Gary under Poker News

Poker dates back to the beginning of the 19th century. Two hundred years of its popularity has turned this kind of card game into a great event where thousands of amateurs and hundreds of Poker Stars try their luck and apply numerous winning strategies.

Have you ever asked yourself why poker is so popular? Well, it is a hot combination of sheer luck, obscure probability, fine psychology and explicit game theory. For almost a century poker was a simple recreational activity. Only the beginning of the twentieth century has brought Poker all its fame and thrill.

These days our world seems impossible without professional players and multi-million dollar tournament prizes. Small groups of enthusiasts have turned into crowds of admirers who enjoy both participating and watching great events such as World Series of Poker, World Poker Tour, European Poker Tour, Latin American Poker Tour, Asia Pacific Poker Tour etc.

Slot machines and how they work

Posted by Gary under Poker News

The first fact about slot machines is that they are something more than the computer chip that runs it.

The slots of past were really different from the machines we know now as most of modern ones are computerized. The chips used to run the machines choose a random number as you play them. So after you pull the trigger and push the spin button you just watch the specially developed RNG system picking 3 random numbers from the computer bank.

The selected numbers will be matched to the symbols the slot machine displays on the screen. Most of the numbers do not match the symbols that offer big payoffs or any payoff at all. But a few numbers match the symbols that give the lucky ones their big payoffs. The symbols keep spinning for several seconds before they stop, but this is rather for the players’ comfort. The fact is that a computer needs just a moment to pick the 3 numbers, which is as fast as a player hits the button.
