Hi guys and gals,

So per proposal in this thread : http://wizardofvegas.com/forum/info/announcements/28819-wov-newsletter/#post589503 , we are more than happy to organize monthly contest(s) and give away some symbolic cash prizes ( it won't make u rich but can pay for drinks , and should be fun etc. we can PayPal the prize(s) ).

Now please post your contest proposals here, it has to be something that would involve some sort of effort from participants: e.g. a blog about your recent casino exp , predicting the price of bitcoin and explain why etc.

If we get enough interest we can make this on regular monthly basis. So let me know how you like the idea and post your proposals.

Fire away!

Cheers
Zuga

Double Whammy... You could introduce new casino games (slots or tables) and ask people to do a write up similar to how Mike does them, with expected returns, etc. I think it would be a top level report, because actually calculating the basic strategies for things like new table games would be quite difficult for the average user (and we wouldn't want to put Mike out of a job =P). BUT, just kind of copying Mike's format and running the numbers still takes effort and work to find the return of the game.
Playing it correctly means you've already won.

And then fire Mike so Romes can take over.

First person to have the review done and checked by someone (Mike, yourself, someone else, etc, etc) and the math is correct.

I don't claim to be able to do Mikes job in any manor of fashion =P. I use his calculations to hack my own versions of things and my own calculations. In the proverbial sense, he's the giants' shoulders I'm standing on to do my calculations =).

That's nothing, according to this ( http://wizardofvegas.com/forum/gambling/trip-reports/28611-chip-collecting-tr-spring-fling/8/#post588295 ) Romes is DA Whizzer.

I think Axel is stalking me on the forums. Already told him I'd put out if he just buys dinner. Geez.
