Greetings!

I am creating this thread primarily to use to announce new Articles that I have written for either Wizard of Vegas or Wizard of Odds. Most of these Announcements will be for Wizard of Vegas, though, as I have only written one or two Pages for the Wizard of Odds site.

For the time being, I'll link my three most recent Articles. As a courtesy, I would request that any comments Members may have about Articles be posted in the Comment section of the page that the Article is on. This will help me gauge the interests of the readers of this site and put out Articles that are more closely suited to the interest of the Members here.

The most recent Article is about the Black Diamond Casino Bonus:

http://wizardofvegas.com/articles/Black-Diamond-Casino-Bonus/

I have written many Articles about beatable Bonuses/Promotions for online casinos, so I would encourage any interested parties to peruse those. There have been roughly a dozen (maybe more) such Articles.

The second most recent article is called, "Free Play, if You Stay":

http://wizardofvegas.com/articles/Free-Play-If-You-Stay/

This Article is about how casinos are tightening the belt straps on players who come in and use Free Play or Match Play without giving the house any other play that day. It also discusses the difference in Trip ADT v. Monthly ADT and how much a player is really worth to the casino.

The third most recent Article is called, "Cocktails, Anyone?":

http://wizardofvegas.com/articles/Cocktails-Anyone/

This Article is about a casino in Vegas that is trying an automated drink comp coupon maker on its bartop machines, as opposed to the bartender simply giving out comp drinks based on his/her perception of whether or not the player is playing enough. The questions this Article asks are, "Does it actually make sense for the casinos to do this?" and, "Is this something more casinos are likely to implement?"

I hope that all of the Members here enjoy the Articles that I write, as well as Internet users who may not be Members, and of course, I hope these Articles compel new individuals to become Members of the site. Enjoy!

As a matter of fact, I only recently realized you were writing a bunch of articles. You've really been kicking them out! WoO too eh?

A bump to this thread once in a while is a good idea.

PS: where are the WoO articles?

I know I wrote two WoO pages, and one of which is, "Getting Started," under the, "Gambling Online," tab. The other is, "The (Less) Wild West of Online Gambling."

I actually haven't been quite kicking out as many as I am supposed to be, but I'm working on it!!!

JohnnyQ,

Thanks for the compliment! I'll never get a Pulitzer, but hopefully I'll end up being well-regarded as a skilled gambling writer.

Nice! I definitely enjoy all of your Articles Mission. They're well written, generally unbiased =p, and entertaining while still being quite informative. A winning recipe if you ask me!
Playing it correctly means you've already won.
