I can't name anyone who plays casino games at home for free. Kids maybe, but, then, kids are liable to try anything (and like it).



Look no further than the top of this page and click on the GAMES button.

Do you think Wizard paid for all those games to be developed thinking no one would play them.....even at home for free?

Please educate yourself and stop giving me ridiculous requests pretending to be polite.

I think just pointing out that the guy asking the questions has no interest in learning is enough not to even humor him with this (obvious) information.

He's just not interested in getting smarter.

Can you please refrain of accusing EvenBob of lying while only quoting statements of opinion? I mean, if you are going to point out specific instances of him actually lying while demonstratively proving it, then that's fine. However, I consider it bordering on trolling just to broadly accuse him of lying.

Roulette, Blackjack, Three-Card Poker (not fun either way, imo)...um...that's it. I probably like the rest of the Table Games. I'm not listing individual slots other than to say that Quick Hits Platinum is the only one I'd ever play for free just for fun.

I actually disagree with that. I think single-zero Roulette would be a pleasurable game now that I have not been able to justify double-zero for several years due to the House Edge. I tend to like slow-paced games, which is what makes Craps and Pai-Gow Poker my two favorite Table Games, though not in that order.

All casino games are fun when they're free.



In a world where everything is fun to a person, he is right.

In a world where fun is defined as something that has ANY criteria for rejection, the statement is false.

That's pretty much it.

I'm surprised you asked for a proof, but it's pretty easy to prove for someone experienced with proofs.

I think an RAA proof would work just fine.

Either way it's a lie. And it's a malicious lie intended to divert the topic at that.

Aaron, please bring it down a few notches.

Don't let him get your goat.

By his own admission, It seems he enjoys schadenfreude.

Your work and opinions are of value, so please don't let your untrammeled zeal and desire to plainly speak your mind lead to another suspension: don't give him the satisfaction.

Ignore the bait, no matter how artfully it is cast.

Just sayin'.

He doesn't get disciplined because in those instances that he could ever be accused of anything, he's on the right side of the line. He said, "All casino games are fun if they are free," should I ban him for Trolling for that?

The point is that he posts and people react, but that in itself doesn't qualify something as Trolling. I post because I want people to have something to say back to me, of course, I generally try to garner responses that are either positive or informative. I write Articles because I want people to read them, I like sharing my opinion and on educational-type Articles, I like sharing my limited knowledge.

In my opinion, before responding to someone, I like to ask, "Why is this person saying this? What response does this person hope to get from me?" If I am unhappy with the answers to those two questions, I either don't respond or respond without giving them what they want.

Like LarryS over on Gambler's Gorge baiting me for several months with his puerile, "Husband of the year," stuff. Let's see, he knows I'm divorced and what else...oh, right, nothing. My ex-wife thinks I'm a good person and her parents still call me, 'Son,' even though they know my ex-wife and I will not and absolutely do not want to get back together.

Point is, I know all of that and he doesn't. But, he wants to try to bait me and I'm a smart fish, sometimes. I wasn't a bad husband, what you had was two people who shared few interests and fundamentally could not enjoy one another's company for prolonged periods of time, much less lifetime.

But, I don't post there, won't post there, and do not have an account there. I've even said this once, but if I could bring back one banned Member, it'd be LarryS with MickeyCrimm a close second. I always enjoyed the limited discourse I had with LarryS, and if he legitimately does have a negative opinion of me, then I am sorry he feels that way...but it's his opinion to have.

That's a pretty meaningless statement.

That board has been CLOSED to new sign-up members for quite awhile now: you couldn't post there even if you wanted to.

The only ones who can post are those who had an account there before it went dark.

Weird board, in that the guy who set it up, Brian Fishman (whoever the heck he is) has been AWOL for many years: kind of like abandoning a hydrocephalic child.

Currently Larry S uses Gambler's Glen as his private urinal, gnashing his teeth and flamting his perceived detractors.

Typically he hurls insults at both John Patrick and the Wiz, two guys who actually had the gall to ban him for expressing his opinion.

There's even an occasional appearance by Frank "The Flaw" Stanton, which always adds comic relief.

Many current members of this board once called it home.

MrV,

Very well, please excuse me if I don't follow it enough to have been aware of the Closed registration. I was originally alerted to the fact that LarryS had mentioned me some months ago, and thought that it might have good entertainment (read: comedic) value for me to go over and see what he had to say. There was then also a relatively recent link to GG, I forget in what context other than LarryS was making some statements about one thing or another pertaining to this Forum and I was mildly amused to see I am still, "Husband of the Year."

I'm afraid I'm not familiar with Brian Fishman, so have no opinion of him either way.

In any event, I wish only the best for LarryS. I had and still have a reasonably high opinion of him as an eloquent writer and still believe he is knowledgeable about Sports Betting. I wish that his ban had not been necessary, but as with many who are banned, he didn't give us much of a choice.

No worries, I was just trying to let you and any others know that it is closed to new members, for whatever reason.

Sorry if I sounded a bit like a smarmy ass: I guess I slip into that persona sometimes.

Not at all smarmy, I took no offense. I just wanted to make sure that I wasn't trying to come off as bragging that I would never join that site as I was legitimately unaware that they are not accepting new Members. The overall point that I was really making is simply that I am not willing to engage people entirely on their terms, and I suggest that individuals who enjoy posting on message boards operate under the same philosophy...if not to avoid trouble, then certainly to get the maximum enjoyment from whatever Forum at which they post.

I enjoy slots but I can't stand free slots, including stuff like My Vegas, they are absolutely boring and I won't often play them.

I will play a video game for free and sometimes even pay for one.

I know lots of people who would play both of Ahigh's games for real money and I'm not just talking about advantage players.

I do believe a certain group of high rollers will love the pinball and it's going to be addictive to many.

I think poker players will especially gravitate to the pinball.

I see two reasons for that loser site:

First and foremost, it can serve as a catharsis for the suicidal and the depressed, a place they can vent, lay it all out, get it off their chest.

But the main reason: schadenfreude.

was set up there told me to ask Ahigh how the

Teddy was there. Wizard was there. I was there. STV2049 was there. DJ Teddy Bear where there. Zcore was there <SNAP!>. GWAE was there. Teliot was there. No MathExtremist.

I recorded the morning conference this morning, and I'll probably burn an MP3.

This show was tons of fun. They let me vape the whole time, and we got to turn it up when there were no sessions going on.

Ahigh --
Just saw your game on youtube, it looks great. I am hoping to play these (coming soon to a casino near me...?). My SOisn't much of a gambler and has repeatedly said he would spend all day in a casino if there was some element of skill to the game, like a video game. I can't wait to show him these. I told him about them and his comment was "FINALLY!"

One question though, do you have to be on LSD to play or would mushrooms work? JK. I love the visuals!

Edit:
Went back and read a lot of the thread. This game sounds amazing. I normally wouldn't touch a slot machine with a ten foot pole, but I would definitely play this thing... for a while. This is exactly what the future of slots looks like. I'm excited about it. It has a great look and feel to it, awesome music. I think a lot of non-gamblers and others would want to try this, in addition to your 'normal' player.

I really hope that I am able to play this game eventually. I really hope that the casinos can see there is a demographic out there for this, and getting us hooked young(er) is better. :)
