888 creating a blog with betting strategies and AP info is a really strange marketing strategy for a casino. Doubly strange when those same strategies are against it’s own casino rules. Triple strange when a majority of those strategies that they somehow both publish and ban are mathematically proven to be worthless.

They either:

A) Actually believe the garbage they publish on the blog
B) Want to include a super broad rule to use as a reason to deny payouts
C) They want people to really think that the betting systems they publish work, so they “ban” it while hoping those people blow a ton of cash trying to get the system going

All 3 options stink.

And then ban players and confiscate their money if they happen to get lucky. Win-win situation for them.

Sounds like they should be on the rouge list for this type of BS.

My tip of the hat for shaming 888 casino ignorance [or is it something else?]



Thanks. I picked up on that from another thread here.

I only glanced at their blog and it seemed to be mostly casino news and nothing about advantage play. If I'm not looking in the right place, please let me now. I know they bought Eliot's AP heat site too. I think their strategy is to cast a wide net to catch as much search engine traffic as they can. A lot of sites do this.

It would be funny if they had an article on the Martingale somewhere and simultaneously ban it in their T&C.

I don't know about funny I think it would mesh well with the goals for drawing traffic to their site. You can entice them with dreams and then dash their hopes to smithereens. Its their money you are after, not their minds or admiration or anything like that.

Beyond EJ’s article’s, I’d file card counting under Advantage Play, and they have many articles on that.

The big boss asked me to write something about roulette.



I thought you were the big boss?

Side note... The first table game I ever played was Roulette. It was at a downtown table during the day where they would give you quarter chips with a minimum per spin of $1. The table was full and the waitress was coming around fast. I have no idea if I won or lost... probably lost... Had a blast! Fond memories... Everyone was just throwing quarters around like they were dimes. Then someone would hit and everyone would high 5 and cheer.

I think they still have a table like this at El Cortez? (Referencing the denomination and the minimum... Not the atmosphere)

On that cheap of a table you can bet the hot and the cold and a section and a few other numbers.

the article though debunks it. It is as if these blog authors are asked to write about some betting system but can't make themselves keep from debunking it , though you have to scroll down to see it

Nope. The big banana now is the site owner Josh, who I work for.

write something about roulette.
That is a hard game to find any new ground to break.

you mean to say "That is a casino game
that is hard to find any new ground to break."

Roulette is not a hard game by any means.

and I do play the HOT numbers at times too!
*****
for a new idea (well, an old one actually)
how about the evens streaks in say 20 spins??

one knows about 5 in a row for Red, but how about a streak of at least 3 for Red, Even and Low
maybe at the same time??

my Excel photo for 0Roulette
the 'evens' streaks

I think that could be hard as well

I bet them too!
