Would you enjoy playing a video game more if it was free to start playing and then you pay for the extras later? You might say ‘yes of course’, but a study by Joost Rietveld of Rotterdam School of Management, Erasmus University now shows that people are willing to spend more time and money on games they must pay for before, the start screen even comes up. Traditionally, video games were sold as hardcopy products in stores such as Toys “R”Us or GameStop. I would say, ever since the mid 2000s, the industry has transitioned into a digital product offering, where games are sold digitally via online stores such as Steam or the iOS App Store.
This transition means that video game publishers have to think carefully about the business model that they use to commercialise their video games. For example, video game publishers can choose to let consumers download and play certain content for free like in online casino sg, then entice them to pay later on, after they’ve played slots for free.
This business model is referred to as the freemium business model Video game publishers are faced with another critical choice. And that is the extent to which they want to break up their content into smaller packages, that are then paid for by consumers. But actually, we know very little about how these choices affect consumer’s decisions to spend time on video games and their willingness to pay for these video games. To find out, I designed an experiment. I took an existing game, and I presented it to half of my participants as a paid game. I presented the same game to the other half of my participants as a free game.
What I discovered was that, even though the game was the exact same for both groups of participants, participants that were presented the paid version of the video game were willing to spend more money on the game as a whole, they were willing to spend more time in the video game, and they were willing to spend more for paid extras that were offered in the video game. And I believe that there is an important psychological explanation for this effect. When consumers first pay for a product, they have made a financial investment into that product and that makes them much more willing to spend additional time and money on that particular product to get that product’s worth. I also conducted a second experiment, to find out how participants would react to the number of paid extras that would be offered in a video game. What I found was that participants who were presented with multiple options were much more likely to choose one of these options and they were also more willing to spend money on these options. I believe that there’s a simple explanation for this finding.
Consumers differ in terms of their tastes and preferences, and by giving them the option to choose from a menu of extras you allow them to choose a combination of extras that best fits their preferences So all in all, my results suggest that video game publishers that want to create the most value for themselves as well as for their players, should sell video games that are premium or paid for and offer many paid extras in those video games. I also believe that these lessons apply to other markets, such as mobile applications in the app store, or publisher selling digital newspapers.
Why aren’t you? That’s a question only you can answer. Do you know the benefits? Probably not. If you did, you’d be a patron by now. For the first package, it’s $5 per month, and that gets you three free entries into 10 $5 prize pool tournaments.
They’re all in Solitaire Cube. Three free entries into 10 games per month in Solitaire Cube for $5 per month. Or, you can invest $10 per month, get 20 match codes in a variety of Skillz games, online casino. Cue Cube, Solitaire Cube, Bubble Shooter, Strike Rail Money Bowling. All four of those are gonna be rotating for those tournaments. Now, the reason we have the majority inside of the $20 per month is this reason right here.
So you’ll get 30, 30 match codes, but 10 of those 30, you’ll have unlimited entries to be able to get that number one spot. Also, a variety of games. You will have unlimited entries from the start of the tournament to the end of the tournament, which each of these games, each of these tournaments are running three days long. So you’ll have three days to get the best possible score in this game. $20 a month, if you pay $20 month, you’ll get 30 match codes.
If you pay $5, you’ll only get 10 and you’ll only get three free entries into those 10 tournaments. Now the second tier, you’re gonna get 10 more. So you’ll have those 10 with the three free entries, but for the $10 bracket, you’re gonna get 10 entries. 10 free entries into 10 additional tournaments that are in the variety of games. Now, you graduate to the $20 per month. You’ll have the three free entries in to 10 games, you’ll have the 10 free entries into 10 more matches, and then, for the last 10 matches of the month, you’re gonna have 10 unlimited entries to get first place.
And guess what? Since it’s $20 a month, not very many people are in it, but that being said, more people are getting into it, because they’re thinking not very many people are gonna get into it. So it’s like a double-edged sword.
Make sure you become a patron today. And if you can’t afford to be a patron, go to to the Twitch channel, twitch.tv.mikeyslice, the link will be in the description below and you’ll be able to see those tournaments running, all 10 of them will be on my twitch channel 24/7 for you. And become a patron so you don’t miss another tournament. I’ll see you next time.
I think what we’ve seen from games so far is just the beginning of what this medium is capable of doing. There’s already artistic achievement there. I don’t think there’s a question that games have become an art, but I think they can become a richer and deeper art.
It takes a while for artists to really get inside a medium deep enough to understand what this medium is capable of doing. In a narrative experience like reading a book or seeing a movie, you essentially want to know what happened to someone else, what choices did they make and how did it turn out. We play games to get some useful information that’s somehow linked deep in our brains to survival skills. And with a game it’s about, well, “What should I do?
And what skills should I develop to play for real money? And what choices should I make?” At our best we can bring people together in a way that’s even harder to do in theater and film because they are doing things together. They are setting out upon the quest together; they are facing the dangers, they are discussing the options, they’re making decisions, and they’re building community. But the soil from which every one of those things grew is a dream. And if you can picture that dream and how it turned into something, you’d understand games better and how games are made.
Our industry is a huge and beautiful place filled with people that are creative and talented who want to share experiences with other people. Play enriches your life. Video games have the capacity to connect people and help them share their feelings, their thoughts, that shows their true creative spirit.
The future of video games is really going to be in the storytelling and the emotional connection. Whether you play games or not, millions of people all over the world have such an emotional connection to this industry and to these games and these characters on so many different levels. Games aren’t just blowing things up. Games aren’t just looking at pixels moving around and trying to get a high score. I’d love to see them enrich somebody’s life by helping them learn to feel more, learn to love more, learn to invest more in the world around them Start thinking about the stories behind all of these games.
Start asking what stories you have to tell. Maybe it’s not that the invention of computers that’s interesting, it’s the way computers through games are changing our lives that’s interesting. Computers are just a mechanism through which our whole world is going to change around interactivity.
You know, you had the Industrial Age, and what age is this? Like the Information Age or something like that. Maybe it’s not.
Maybe it’s the Game Age.

What’s up guys, my name is Colin McNeil for theScore esports. Last Valentine’s Day, we gave you a video called “The Top 10 hottest League of Legends Players,” and you loved it. Yeah.
So this year, we’re giving more of what you want, with the Top 10 hottest players in CS:GO. Now hold on, before you start writing an essay in the comments section promising to unsubscribe, hear me out. We evaluated these players based on their highlight potential, recent success, relevancy to the game and, yeah, their good looks too. So now that the criteria’s out of the way, here is the Top 10 hottest guys in CS:GO. Peanut brain?
I don’t think so. Nobody is underestimating the tactical prowess of tarik after Cloud9’s incredible Major win in Boston. And you know what, I have it on good authority that smart is sexy. That’s why we’ve picked him to start off this entirely scientific… …Top 10 list. (Casting) Ah yes, the Bosnian beast.
NiKo’s frags are always hot, but since joining FaZe Clan we feel like his style has really improved as well. Damn, this dude has some swag. And it’s worth noting that NiKo has obviously been hitting the gym lately. We’d be doing him a real disservice if we didn’t give him props for the hard work he’s been putting in. Now let’s cut the shirtless selfies and get to the good shit, those sexy NiKo frags.
(Casting) You know, I won’t lie, I did not have jdm on this list originally. But some of the women in the office just wouldn’t stand for it. The bandana-wearing, chair reclining American AWPer had been an integral part of Team Liquid since the summer of 2016. That is until his recent departure in February of this year. He’s like the all-American boy next door… if the boy next door could hit flick shots like this.
(Casting) And hey, if that didn’t convince you, take a look at this bizarre video from ESG Myknonos, with jdm coming out of the ocean, Daniel Craig style. The first and only Frenchman on our list, shox can do it all. He can AWP with the best of them, outduel just about anyone on rifles, and clutch like you wouldn’t believe. (Casting) And when it comes to matters of the heart, I like to imagine he’s equally well-rounded. Everybody loves a renaissance man, am I right? And hey, that suave haircut and pretty solid jawline don’t hurt either.
They say success is the best aphrodisiac. Well, in our next player’s case, he’s got plenty of that. …success, I mean. Arguably the best player in the world, Coldzera also sports one hell of a manly moustache that practically exudes testosterone.
We’re talking Tom Selleck levels of manliness here. And just like NiKo, Cold has clearly been putting in work at the gym. These days he’s looking like a lean, mean fragging machine.
And if you do manage to resist the Brazilian’s animal magnitude, just take a look at these highlights, OK. (Casting) Coming in at number five is another player that the female contingent here in the office just couldn’t leave off the list. The clean cut Danish superstar himself, dev1ce. Recently bouncing back from an injury that kept him out of competitive Counter-Strike for months, dev1ce is back as the primary AWPer for Danish powerhouse Astralis and we are glad to see it.
I have to admit, I’m starting to see the appeal. But whether he’s your type or not, you just can’t argue with plays like this. (Casting) Ah, Sean Gares.
Analyst, in-game leader and not a bad fragger himself. Is there anything this guy can’t do? (Casting) Between leading Misfits to some pretty impressive results, to appearing on the ELEAGUE analyst desk, we’ve been seeing a lot Mr. Gares recently, and that, combined with his good looks, has landed him the number four spot on our list. They say confidence is the key to attraction and Sean has plenty to be confident about.
“You are not my friend, you are my brother, my friend.” Do I really need to explain why Pasha Biceps is on this list? This dude is swole. The guy looks like he could curl a bus-and-a-half.
Plus he has some absolutely adorable children and I know the ladies love a family man. Awwwww. Oh yeah, and I guess he’s a pretty good Counter-Strike player as well… (Casting) I’m just going to come out and say it, one taps are sexy. Although he hasn’t been in top form recently, ScreaM is still the undisputed king of single shot and tight spray AK kills. Uh, sorry, wrong clip. (Casting) I could say more about ScreaM’s dashing good looks, piercing eyes and well groomed facial hair, but hey, I think the highlights speak for themselves.
This is it people, our number one hottest CS:GO player, and who else could it possibly be, but the X-God himself? Dosia a living legend not just in Counter-Strike, but in the Russian dating scene as well. His exploites in love are almost as well known as his accomplishments in esports. A 1.6 player who successfully made the transition to Global Offensive, the Russian playboy is a Major champion, and a major heartbreaker.
Now before you get too hot under the collar, I do need to inform you that, as of September 2017, Dosia is a happily married man. (Casting) Ok, that was our list and you made it this far. So go ahead, flame me. But I don’t know about you, I feel the energy in the air. It’s like Cupid just one tapped me with his Deagle of love.
Hey there, fellow travelers! Mark here with Wolters World. Today, we’re in Springfield USA! Yes, the home of The Simpsons. Well actually not the actual home of The Simpsons. There’s actually about 20 or 30 Springfields throughout the US.
This just happens to be Springfield, Illinois. And today what we have for you are 10 things that are going to shock you about when you come to the US, because there are things that do shock people when they come here. You know, how many flags are flying all around every single city, and how many Starbucks and McDonalds are in every single city, and the Americans actually eat cheese that’s in a can that they spray in their mouth?
What the heck is that? And look! “No need to refrigerate!” I’m not even talking about the politics in the US, which is also a shocking kind of thing.
Today what we’re going to focus on our 10 things that shock foreign tourists when they come to the US. So let’s get started, okay? Alright, so the first thing that’s going to shock you when you come to the US are the sizes of the US. Now when I talk about size of the US, I mean the actual size of the US; this country is huge!
I mean it’s the size of a continent, okay? When you want to get around. But also the sizes of the food you get here, the portion sizes free refills. Oh my God, it’s soda without end but also the size of the people and that’s why I really, kind of, focus on the size of the US is that first kind of shock. because I’ll meet tourists that are coming to the US and they’re like, “OH!” I am going to fly into New York, just rent a car in New York, drive down to Miami, and then, drive over to Las Vegas and do some gambling.”
“That shouldn’t take so long. I mean, it’s all in the same country.” What you need to realize is the US is huge! That drive from New York City to down in Miami is going to take you 18 hours straight of driving.
I mean that’s no potty breaks, no getting food, no getting gas. 18 hours straight. And of course, no construction, no traffic jams, nothing like that. I mean it’s literally, you know, 1,300 miles, or about 2,000 kilometers just from New York to the tip of Florida.
And then, if you want to go from Florida to Las Vegas well that’s another 4,000 kilometers And it is huge distances when you are traveling in the US. And that does surprise people when they realize this, “Wow, this is a lot bigger than traveling around Germany.” Well, yeah. Germany, you can the train around and see everything.
Here in you US, you just really can’t do that. The distances are just too big. And of course, with those sizes, you have the portion sizes here. One of the things that I love to see is when people realize that we have free refills in the US.
If you are getting soda, not in a can, but a fountain soda where they pour the soda for you if you go to a restaurant, most of the time, your Coke, your Pepsi, Mountain Dew which as super caffeine stuff, your Dr. Pepper, or Root Beer, which foreigners tend to hate but we Americans love, it’s free refills. You just get more and more and more so you only pay once and you get all the soda you ever want. Sadly, that free refill stuff doesn’t count for alcohol. Dang It! But the thing is that free refills, but also the portion sizes here in the US, kind of explain…….some of these things.
Because you’ll see, when you’re going to get your McDonald’s, or whatever in Germany, you get a large there ok. The large is a half liter. Well, the large in Europe is just a medium here. Because, here you can literally get larges that are this big. it is insane.
The portion sizes. And when you go to a restaurant sometimes you’ll think, “Man there’s enough on one plate to feed two people.” Yes, there probably is. So, just know, that when you are coming to the US, you might pack on a few pounds or kilos or stones, whatever, you know, whatever. (chuckles) whatever measurement you want to use, because there are a lot of big portion sizes but there are a lot of really good food around here in the US No, it’s not just McDonald’s. We go to other places too.
And then the third of those size things, are the size of the people. Yes. There are a lot of …… husky, as I like to call myself husky, fluffy Americans. Yes, we do eat a lot and no we don’t go out a lot. We are driving around and things like that so you will see a lot of big people here. But the thing is, not every American is a big, fat, slob like me, ok?
There’s all kinds of shapes and sizes of Americans, like that you are here. So don’t just think that every American just goes to McDonald’s and gets fattened up. That’s just me. Ok? So, just know that there are these sizes of the US will shock you when you look at those things.
Alright? Now, the second thing that’s going to shock you when you come here that has to do with the people, is the people! Look, there is this rumor that Americans are just this fake, friendly.
No. Americans really are super friendly. No matter where you go, people will try to help, will show you around they’ll say, “hey, which restaurant you should go to in this town? “What site should we see? Hey, I am lost, can you help me find the highway?”
People are really nice from the US and in different parts. You go to Minnesota where they are insanely friendly. And the south, they’re insanely friendly. And that’s one thing that people need to understand is that in the US, we do help each other out. We do ask you, “Hey, how are you?
How’s it going? How could I help you?” These are normal things. And that service, kind of, scares tourists when they come. They’re like, “I just walked into the store and they are asking me how can they help. I don’t even know what your store has yet.
How can you help me when I don’t even know what you have?” Look, just know that in the US, we are all about service. We are going to ask you right away. “What can you get?
What do you need to drink? What do you want to order? Can I help you with your clothes?
What are you looking for?” That is just how we work here. Another thing, when you look at the US, you’re going to have a big mix of people here. There’s no one American. You know?
You hear of these stereotypes of this or this or this of Americans Look, Americans come in all shapes, all sizes, all religions, all colors, all creeds, all “hairnesses” because, honestly, the only fake stuff you see in the US are the artificial colorings like you’re going to see, like, the Fantas, and the sodas, and the cereals. You’re going to be like, “Wow, those colors just, like, glow in the dark.” Yes, the artificial coloring thing here, that’s the fakeness of the US.
The friendliness of the people? That’s not fake. They’re awesome. So, we are in Las Vegas now and the third thing that’s going to shock you when you come to the US is ID please.
I need some identification please. The fact that people have to have an ID to buy liquor, and buy cigarettes in the US. Because in the US, you have to be 21 to buy alcohol, and 18 to buy cigarettes, and basically you have to look like your 40 to actually buy them without having them ask you for ID. So, make sure that you keep your passport with you so if you are going to buy stuff, you have that.
And it’s not just you, the person buying, but the people with you, they might need an ID too. Alright, we left the desert of Vegas, and now we are here in the coast here in Florida and the fourth thing that is going to shock you when you come to the US is the the price is never actually what you pay in the US. Now, in Europe and other countries, you already have this VAT, value added tax, that’s already put into the price. Here in the US, we have what we call sales tax.
which is add on after you buy the product. So, if you go to a McDonald’s and you say, “I want to get a hamburger on the dollar menu and I got one buck. I should be able to buy it.”
No, no. That one buck and then you got to put the tax on top of it. It can be anywhere from, I don’t know, 7 to 15 percent. Some states have it.
Some states don’t. It can very between locations so that one dollar cheeseburger or hamburger can actually cost you a dollar ten ($1.10) It gets really frustrating, when you think about it because it’s not just sales tax that gets added on to the price. If you go out to a restaurant, you also have tipping. And tipping in the US is traditionally between 15% and 20% at a sit down restaurant So think about it. You go to a sit down restaurant, right?
You have a $100 bill. Ok, I got a $100 bill in my hand, and the bill for the meal is $100 bucks, I should be fine. Oh no, no, no, no, no. That $100, well you gotta add on another 10% because of, well taxes, right? And sales tax. And another 15% on top of that for tipping.
So now, your 100 dollar bill for dinner is actually $125! And I know, people might not agree with tipping, but that’s how it works in the US. They’re not paid a great wage, but they make a lot more money on tips and that’s why you get this good service that we kind of talk about sometimes. That’s where that comes from.
Now the fifth thing that we have that shocks people is when you come here and you think, “Wow. The US. It’s so developed. They got all this stuff here They must have good public transportation.” Hahahaha. Good and public transportation in the US do not go together.
Yes there are some cities that have decent public transportations; Chicago, New York, Boston. Big cities. You probably can get some decent public transportation within the city but a lot of places out there, there are either no public transportation, or very limited transportation or public transportation that a tourist would not want to ride on.
I would say that that does get kind of frustrating. You’re like, “But wait. You have all this stuff but you gotta drive everywhere.” Anyway, the sixth thing that’s going to shock you when you come here are the toilets.
And specifically, The public toilets in the US. Look, I know I talk about toilets a lot on my videos, and actually, one of our fans made a video of me just saying toilet, toilet, toilet, and all these different places. But I’ll be honest, when you come to the US, public toilets are free. There are tons of public toilets.
Restaurants have them free for everybody, but the thing is, public toilets in the US are usually kind of gross but what I think is funny is when you look at toilets in the US I get a lot of friends of mine coming from around the world like, “Oh my God. Your toilet has so much water in it!” And, yes, the US toilets do use a lot of water. Now, they’re starting to get the lower water content toilets but there are a lot there. So you can be like, “On my God.
Am I supposed to wash my feet in the toilet here?” “Or do I go to the bathroom in it?” It’s kind of crazy. And probably another toilet thing that shocks people is when you go to a public place and they have toilets, there’s so much space between the doors. You can literally look through the crack and see who’s in there doing their business, what business they’re doing what book they might be reading, ok? Because you’re going to be able to look through the side of it.
And then, underneath there’s like this much gap underneath so you can see, “Oh are their feet there?” But literally, you can see everything. So those public toilets really are quite public when you are there. And it does kind of shock people when you are there.
What is cool, is that you do have the toilets all over the place and they are free all over the place in the US so, that is a really cool thing. So, we have moved from the sunny coasts of Florida to the sunny coast, or banks of the muddy Mississippi River. And the next shock we have for you when you come to the US are the Americanisms when you come here.
Look, there are things that are typical U.S.A. and part of that is U – S – A! U – S – A! U – S – A! Yes, one of the Americanisms here is the patriotism in the US You will see the flag flying all over the place. And the people, they love America. ”
‘Murica!” You will see that. Some of the, kind of, quirky things about Americans, when you do come here, you will see.
And it’s not just America in general. You know, when I talked about the toilets well, one of the things about the toilets is by the toilets you will always see this kind of silver box next to it and people are bending over at it. And you’re like, “what is going on here?” It’s a water fountain.
Ok? We like to give away free stuff here in the US. Whether it is free water or free bread at a restaurant, or go to a Mexican Restaurant and you have free chips and salsa until you vomit, and you don’t have to pay for it! I mean, there are so many Americanism little things that when you’re here. With the flag, how much we love it?
You’ll have American flag t-shirts, heck, you could have American flag undies! Ok? We joke about, “Oh Americans and their fast food.” But, literally, there is fast food all over the place and, yes, we do have McDonald’s everywhere, but we have more than McDonald’s.
You have Culver’s in the midwest. You got In-N-Out burgers on the West Coast. Whataburger in Texas. Shake Shack in New York.
And you have all these fast food places all over the place with their super huge drinks. “The large holds one liter.” I believe, that’s what you people call a liter, ok? OH! And liters!! There’s a whole thing right there.
Americans don’t get. Do you know the only way Americans know the metric system is because of Our SODA! This is a 2 liter of Pepsi and this is a 2 liter of Coke, and, you know what, that’s how we know liters here.
It’s by our soda sizes, ok? Otherwise, we use gallons, we use feet, we use inches, we use miles. That’s how they do it here. And a lot of tourists have a hard time with that when they are trying to figure out “well, how much is a gallon?” A gallon is about 4 liters, just so you know. Ok, it’s like 2 of these out there.
OH! And in the US, how you get great quantity discount. See this Coke? This was $1.
See this Pepsi? This was $1 at Wal-Mart. Love you Wal-Mart! Let’s not forget about the Wal-Marts out there.
24 hour shopping? Think about it. Yesterday, my son – my oldest son – spilled ketchup all over himself crashed his skateboard, and ripped up all his clothes and so he really had nothing left for today. So guess what I did at 2 o’clock in the morning. I went to Wal-Mart and got some Coke and Pepsi and I got him clothes.
At 2 a.m. And we love it when we come here, and that’s why tourists love it when they come here. From the friendly people to the 24 hour shopping to the cheap soda (HEY!) I know, you can drive those 20 hours from Florida to Illinois if you have a couple of these with you (WooHoo!!) Go a little crazy, but that’s the thing, there are these really fun Americanisms when you do come here and that’s one of the things.
All you watching, and if you have any of those funny Americanisms, please put them in the comment section below, because we are going to make more videos on funny, little American things when you are here. But, anyway, I guess I’ll go and to the next, kind of, shocking thing when you come to the US. And our 8th shocking thing, and we are going to go back to that thing with the metric system and we can only understand (chuckles) with the soda it goes into the driving. OK?
Here in the US, people get shocked about the driving. I know I talked about how there is a lack of public transport and you have to drive when you are here but when you do drive when you are here, you will be shocked at how big the roads are how big the cars are. Oh, an also, they’re all automatic, ok?
If you can find a stick shift, good luck, and yes, you do do miles per hour here. Not kilometers per hour, but miles per hour. And the speed limits, they change all over the place. You never know when, you’re just like, “Oh, it just changed.”
And the cop gets you. Oh, there’s a shocking thing. You know, some countries, they just have the camera that takes pictures when you’re going too fast. We have that some places in the US but most of the time, you have the cops sitting on the side of the road with their radar guns watching you and, OH, you’ve gone too fast and the sirens come on and they drive down and pull you over. It is quite the American experience to be pulled over for speeding, so don’t speed when you are here. And there are some other little things that are different.
Here in the US you can take a right turn on a red light, so if you are sitting there and you can take a right turn and you have your blinker on, and people are honking at you, it’s because they want you to take a right. Make sure you look and make sure there’s not other traffic is coming. But you can take a right on red. And the thing is, we Americans love our cars. I mean it is the most liberating thing when you are sixteen years old, ha sixteen years old and you get your drivers license here.
So you get your 16 license. License to drive, license to live, oh yeah! And, I mean, that’s part of the US culture. We eat in our cars, we drink in our cars (soda, don’t drink and drive, the cops will throw you in jail, they don’t care what country you’re from, you will go to jail.
Don’t drink and drive. You know, drink your liters of Coke and Pepsi!) So, the ninth thing that is going to shock you when you come to the US, OH, we are here in Boston the kind of, heart of history of the US and the American Revolution.
And the ninth thing that is going to shock you when you come to the US, is you will see a lot of homogeneity, i.e., that means, like, everythings kind of very similar everywhere you go. Also, you will see definite, different cultures and culture and history in the US. We get tons of comments like, “Oh the US, there’s no culture there. There’s just McDonald’s and there’s no history there. It’s too young.”
No, there is history and there is culture here. But on the other side of it, there is a lot of homogeneity so, when you go travel around, you see the same stores. You see, “Oh, look. There’s an Old Navy. Oh, look. There’s a Sephora.”
And you’ll see the same stores again and again. And it gets kind of repetitive. Especially when you are going into the suburbs and you are going into the newer cities and newer towns it really looks like, I mean, you can’t tell the difference between going to one city in one part of the country versus another when you are doing that shopping experience or hotels and things like that.
So it does give you a kind of shock when you’re like, “What town am I in? It seems the same.” But having said that, there are distinct cultures and regions here in the US and that does shock people because you come here, to the Northeast, to New England, you know they have different food You gotta have the clam chowder, and they have what they call the “New England Shield” where they don’t really talk to people, but they’re friendly once you get to know them Or you got the south where you got the Southern hospitality where they feed you for days and give you tons of food and ask you, “how are you doing?” and all kinds of stuff.
Or you got the cool, cooky West Coast. There’s definitely different cultures here in the US and it does shock people when they drive around and realize, “Yes, a lot of the stuff looks the same but the people are different in different parts of the country. So, just know that, yes the homogeneity will shock you but there are different cultures out there, because yes, there is fantastic history here in Boston, and great museums around the US – Getty in LA, Art Institute of Chicago, The Met in New York where you can have great history. You can have great art, You can have great culture when you are here. Because this is a big melting pot of the world.
And the tenth thing that is going to shock you when you come to the US are the hotels. Look, you can actually get a good, medium priced or lower priced hotel here in the US There are tons of hotel chains here. You know, Hampton Inns, Holiday Inn, and all these kinds of places and it’s very standardized, ok? If you get a double room, you can probably put 4 people in a room there Or 40 people people in there, because the rooms are a lot bigger when you get two double beds when you get a double room, it’ll have two beds, i.e., two big beds because there’s no two single beds pushed together like in Europe. You have all this extra space when you are there.
Now, one of the things that does kind of shock people when they do go to the hotels here in the US is, it’s kind of like, the relatively cheaper the hotel is, the more stuff they give you! You go to a cheap chain hotel or a medium priced chain hotel like a Hampton Inn or something like that, and you get free WiFi, you get a free breakfast – like as much breakfast as you want – umm, you know, they’re going to have a pool, all kinds of really cool stuff no resort fees. Oh my God. And if you go to, like, an expensive, nice hotel, breakfast?
Oh no, you get to pay for that. You want internet? Oh that’s $19 a day. Oh the pool?
You want to use the pool and do the fun stuff? You need to do the resort fees and pay extra. You’re like, “Wait, I am paying triple the price for a nice hotel and I actually get less amenities when I go there.” it kind of boggles your mind. So, when you come here, just know that you can actually stay in some of these chain hotels and it’s not a problem what-so-ever, ok? Read the reviews about them, but, you know, you’re going to get one Holiday Inn Express is pretty much the same through out the country.
Remember, the homogeneity of number 9? That really does come out in the hotels, but they are clean, they are safe, and there really are a lot of price options out there, so just know, if you want the free stuff, actually, you go to the cheaper one versus the more expensive ones who have better locations and cooler rooms (maybe) but they make you pay for a lot of things. So it does kind of shock you. “Wait, I get less for more?
Or more for less?” Yes, I know, the US with our stuff. It’s kind of crazy. Anyway, those are our 10 kind of fun things that might shock tourists If you want to learn more, check us out on our website on woltersworld.com.

We will see you later. Bye! !
I’m the Odds Coach. This is how to properly use a parlay calculator. Parlays are bets of two or more, combined together to try to place the odds a little more in the sports bettors favor. They’re particularly common when you’re facing strong favourites in a game and you’re looking to get the odds down to something that’s a little bit more acceptable.
You find two really strong favourites and get the odds combined and lowered to something that pays out a reasonable amount. i’m going to go through an example here of two bets but you can have as many bets as the sportsbook will allow combined together. Bear in mind, with a parlay you’re expecting that only one outcome, the winning of all of your games is going to pay you in return.
Let’s look at this example. This is some odds from Pinnacle on NBA games. We have the Nuggets and Raptors and the Kings and Hawks. As you can see from the odds on these games the Raptors and the Hawks, in their respective games are both really strong favourites. To win one hundred dollars on a Raptors game… you’re going to have to bet $313 at casino gambling games. Its pretty long odds and a pretty big risk for the sports bettor.
What we can do is combine these two really long odds into a parlay. When that happens that merges the odds into something that’s a little bit more acceptable: -133 is a little bit more acceptable. You still need to have both outcomes occur. To really evaluate what’s going on in this parlay you have to then calculate out the other side of the parlay. You can lose in a number of different ways, you can win by one combination: Raptors-Hawks. You can lose by Hawks-Nuggets, Kings-Raptors or Kings-Nuggets.
All three of those outcomes mean that you lose your bet. What we want to do is use some of the calculators on the site to calculate out the exact odds of those outcomes. This would be a nuggets Hawks parlay that’s going to give you +378. That’s a 20.92% implied probability.Here we have the outcome of the Raptors and the Kings giving us +369 that’s a 21.32% implied probability that outcome will occur. Finally we have the Nuggets and the King’s here +1185 giving us a 7.08% likelihood that that’s going to occur. When we add all those implied probabilities together we get 50.02% We’ve already calculated out -133 is an implied probability of 57.08%.
What that actually is telling us is the real useful information here. Since these two numbers add up to above hundred that means the sportsbooks edge on this particular bed is 7.10% That’s a really high sportsbook edge. Typically if you’re going to spread bet your edge is 2.44%-5% depending on the sports book that you’re dealing with.
Here we’re seeing a bet that actually is strongly in the sportsbooks favor. You have to pay close attention because a lot of sportsbooks will change the odds based on the fact that you are trying to compete a parlay.You have to keep an eye on that because, once again, that sportsbook edge can creep up on you and lower the value of your overall bet. Remember to come to the site use the calculators. Pump in all of your numbers for your parlays but also pump in all the eventualities on the other side of the bet so that you’re sure that you’re getting the best value in your parlay. It may be it’s a sign that you should stay away from that bet.
A gambler who claims he was banned from casinos after winning thousands of pounds has revealed his ‘no-lose’ roulette system which he says has seen him rake in the cash for years. Balvinder Sambhi said Rainbow Casino in Birmingham barred him this month after he won using a secret betting pattern, which he has spent years perfecting He also claimed he was banned from Grosvenor Casino back nine years ago. Both Rainbow Casino and other Canadian Online Casinos refused to comment when approached by Birmingham.

Then he places two chips on two corners, to ensure he wins if the ball lands in 8,9,11, 12 or 26, 27, 29 and 30 He then waits another 12 losing spins with no winning appearance of those numbers, before repeating the bet – which he says offers him odds of 4 5/1.

Let’s get to the nitty-gritty, so why we are here – we’re here because we’re going to finally show you Project: Homecoming! And I know everybody has been waiting for this, we can actually jump right in to the game and show you the Monsters fighting against each other, so we have Leshen and the Unseen Elder. And this is of course one of the boards, we’ll have faction-specific boards, so you’ll have one for Scoia’tael, Skellige, Northern Realms and Nilfgaard, and of course specific boards for Thronebreaker, which are really, really awesome. But before we show you those, we’re going to show you Monsters first. Let’s start off by moving on to the mulligan screen.
As you can see, we’re able to mulligan some cards… Yeah, the difference that you can see almost immediately is whenever you milligan a card, it doesn’t go immediately to the deck. It’s basically being put on the side of the mulligan screen, and that’s basically it, the cards will go back to the deck as soon as you close the mulligan screen. The other thing that you probably noticed is that you have much more charges of mulligan than before.
Because before we kept it to 3 in the first round and 1 on the second and third round. Yes, exactly. And now they are actually tied to the Leaders. And not only Leaders – additionally, person who goes first will get 1 additional charge of mulligan, or maybe 2, we’ll see, that’s still a subject to change. But yeah, the mulligans are tied to the Leaders and the number of them depends on the power of their ability.
But you also have to remember that now you have a hand limit of 10 cards, right? That’s also something that is there, so you need to think about how you distribute these mulligans. You will be drawing cards in between rounds, and I think it’s 3 cards when you move on to the second round, and on the third one you also get to draw 3 cards, but only if you have less than 10. Again, this is still a subject to change, because this is what we’re trying right now, and it works for us, but we’ll see. Cool. Let’s stop for a minute, let’s just look at the visuals, because as we promised in the letter by Marcin Iwiński and the GWENT Team, the idea was pretty much to have everything look a lot more darker, grittier, have The Witcher 3 feel.
As you can see, we have this feel over here. I also mentioned previously on the Forums that we’re doing something different with Leaders and changing the way they will be working. As you can see, Leaders are present on the battlefield, so we have the Unseen Elder and the Woodland Spirit who is filling in for Dagon, who is currently gone. This looks just incredible, I’m really happy we can actually show it to you. What do you think about the look overall?
What do I think, or what was our goal when we were doing it? Let’s talk about both! What do I think? I actually think it looks amazing. As you can see, the board is actually bigger because we got rid of the side preview on the right. We don’t need it anymore, as the tooltips that we introduced are more like pop-up tooltips – dynamic tooltips.
Yeah, we can also show those and hover over the cards, and you’ll be able to see that. When you hover over a card you get the preview and the tooltip for it. We also have a big preview but we’ll get to that later. But let’s address the elephant in the room! Not the visual change, the other change.
2 rows – how does this affects the gameplay in the game? This is a very big concern for the Community, so let’s talk about what 2 rows actually enabled for you and your team to do. So, the goal behind the 2 rows was to actually put more focus on the row identity, because this allowed us to create a bit more complicated abilities, without making the tooltips obscure and crazy.
Therefore, what you can expect from now on in GWENT are abilities like, let’s call it row-restricted abilities. We’re not restricting you from playing a card on any row you want to, but some of the abilities will only trigger on certains rows. You’ll have even cards that have different abilities on the melee and on the ranged row.
I know that this was requested by the Community for a long time, but with 3 rows it was really hard to actually do something that will be both interesting, balanced, and on top of that the tooltip will be clean and will not take half of the screen when you’re reading it. Just to jump in – I really like this idea because there are some units, for example, when you play them in melee they hit for 4, let’s say – – of course these are not proper numbers because all these things are a subject to change – – but if you place it on the ranged row, it does 4 damage but you can split it on different units, on four different units, you can proc them one by one, which is really cool because it opens up a whole new space when you design cards, and I really like it. Same with cards that, for example, might do damage or might boost depending on where they are placed, that’s really cool. Also, the cards received a major overhaul, and I’m not only talking about the visuals, of course I’m talking also about the gameplay, but let’s focus on the first part, so the visuals.
They have a new frame, also they are a lot darker, the art is exposed a lot more, and it feels right at home with the redesigned board. What do you think about these? Again, I really, really love them, I much prefer this look to the old look because it just makes the art more prominent, it makes the art pop out more.
As we can see, there are Gold cards, there are Bronzes, but where are the Silvers, Luigi? Ehh, I knew this was coming. So, there are no Silver cards anymore. Let me tell you why, because this can cause outrage, that we are cutting and cutting.
Homecoming, right? We’re going back to the roots, The Witcher 3. Yeah, that’s basically it, because when we created Silver cards back in the day, I think it was in early beta, we created them for balance purposes, because we couldn’t have just Golds and Bronzes, because we didn’t have anything in between.
Right now, with the introduction of the Army limit system – I think you already leaked something about that… Yeah, I talked about it. You have restrictions as to the amount of cards you can put in your deck, and decks are constructed with 30 cards. Yes, so with this system, we actually don’t need Silvers anymore because they are exactly the same as Gold cards. And again, this is coming back to The Witcher 3, where GWENT had only Bronze and Gold cards.
So maybe let’s jump to the big preview of a card, and this card is actually wounded and has something called the base power of the card. Something very requested by the Community. Yes, you were requesting that a lot in the last months, not only last months, last years actually, and we wanted to give it to you. Right now when you preview the card, if you go to the big preview, you will see card’s base power and its current power.
Let’s maybe move on to the VFX, we’ll actually show one of the cards doing damage. As you can see, there is like a fireball effect moving through, and yeah, this is something cool. I know that the VFX team is working really hard and they are making really cool VFX for the weather, because weather stays, right?
Yes, yes. I just wanted to notice that in each statement you can just sum up everything with every visual received major overhaul. Well yes, but now we can actually show all the visuals, which is really cool and I’m really excited for these, because you and the whole team – they kicked ass to get this done. But remember that the visuals are not the only thing that is getting overhaul, because audio is for example getting it as well. It’s really hard to display, especially when we are talking, but yeah, everything is receving a major overhaul so the quality of the game should improve drastically.
Luigi, thank you, as always, for joining me here in the studio, and let’s wait for the next update! See you guys! Bye!
We’Ve been looking at how well the passo model, you know where, if you look at the distribution of goals scored in football, they follow a Poisson distribution. So all we need to know is the average number of goals that our team scores and concedes, and then we can kind of predict. We can say how often we expect a team to score one, two, three, four or whatever goals. So using that approach we can look at a match, so in this case we’re looking at Watford Palace Arsenal, West Ham, Man, City Swansea, and then we can get the average number of goals that they score and concede from soccer stats.
The link is in the description below the video, so then we just plug that in to our pawsome model. We see how often we expect three or more goals or two or more girls Tector, because so far I’d always be looking at pretty clean the results. So you know whether it’s gon na be a home way in a drawer or away win.
This is the first look really to see. Ok, the passo model also does predict. You know how often we expect three or more goals etc, but is it accurate? I mean how do we use it here? I’M just gon na pick.
I’M gon na decide that okay, I’m gon na bet that we can have to feel more gold if the signal is 60 % or higher. On top of that, I’m using the history sucker starts to look at the historical rate of over and unders, because, okay, we can, we can get a prediction about Man City at home. You know cuz, they score lots of goals, but the other way is to totally ignore.
We don’t have any model, don’t don’t make it more complicated than you need to. So if you just look at the overs and unders, I can say, click at home Arsenal at home have three or more goals, 76 percent of the time. So I typically want to back three or more goals. If it’s Man, City at home, is Man City, eighty-eight percent of the time, so you know we could just use this and what the other game Iwas talking about was in Watford .., Watford, sixty five percent, so all three games, all three games seem to be high-scoring. Where we’d expect three or more, it is slightly more complicated, though, because Crystal Palace have three or more goals like when Crystal Palace are away less than half the time. So what’s the rules am I mean if the home team has to do of more goals?
Quite regularly, but the away team has a good defense and they tend to have low scoring game. I don’t know. Maybe I’d have to come up with the rule. We’D have to figure out what that means in this case, since I haven’t come up with a proper analysis, if anyone knows to be handy, what I’m doing is: oh because I keep man.
City are playing Swansea way and if you look at Swansea, they only have when Swansea are way they have low scoring games. They only have three or more goals. Thirty, five percent of the time.
So, even though Man City tend to score low circles, they’re playing against a team that tend to basically I should’ve shop, octopus or whatever you want to call it, so they tend to be involved in low scoring games, which means it’s not obvious that this is gon Na be a high scoring game. So that’s what we got from the overs and undress it’s on soccer strategy, just click on over San Andres and then we can get the goal rates from this table. So as we saw Arsenal at home, they score.
2 point 6. 5 concede one point: one they’re playing West Ham, who went there away score? One point: two four concede two point, two four, so getting those numbers we can plug them in to our pawsome model in our so for the Man City Swansea match.
We have two or more girls, 88 % of the time three or more 72. Now from just the overs and unders data, you know, if I didn’t have the model, you know I was saying: oh man, City score, 80, half three or more goals. 88 percent of the time, but Swansea away, half three or more girls, only 35 percent of the time. So if I was just using the overs and unders table, I wouldn’t I’d avoid the bedding on three or more goals. I mean it was unclear as to whether we should expect three or more. We could see that he both had two or more goals very regularly, but three or more.
If I just had the data, if I just had the overs and unders data, I would have not bet on them. I would have just bet on the two or more, but using the poisson model it says no, I know that Swansea have a good defense. You know – and they don’t tend to concede – that many away goals, but I think you’re gon na get fewer more very regularly, so the porter model says bet on man city swansea to have three or more. It also says to back arsenal West ham to have three or more eighty-seven percent of the time, so that just leaves Watford Crystal Palace. We have a difference.
So if you plug in the data for Watford Palace, I can see that we expect two or more girls, but it’s not clear about three or more. So I back two or more goals, but I’d stay away from three or more because it’s a coin toss I mean lucky, nearly fifty percent. So it’s it’s very much a coming to us it’s interesting because for Watford Palace we had a difference of opinion. We didn’t really know whether to buy three or more goals or not Watford at home, I think had typically had three or more goals, but Palace away only had three or more half the time.
So if I just had the soccer stats data, if I didn’t have the parcel model again again, I really wouldn’t know how to interpret that so very much like the Man City Swansea match where man said your home nearly always score. I mean nearly always have three or more goals. I think it was 88 %.
What Palace I mean, while Swansea way, rarely have three or more goals. So again, if I just had the soccerstats data, I would give that a miss, but using the poisson model it said. No, I think you’re gon na get three or more goals you nearly it had a very high probability of three or more so again, we’ll see how it goes, but today we have 10 euro on all three matches and we’ll compare the two approaches.
Just using the soccer stats information, if I just knew that old, this is how often the team has three or more goals, and I didn’t have the possible model, and if I had used the poisson model, does it actually add value?

Casinos, both online and “live”, love to host tournaments. Originally these events were built around popular card games like poker and blackjack, but today they focus on all kinds of casino games, and one of the most popular are slots tournaments.
To play in a slots tournament of any kind requires an enrollment fee. These add up as part of the awards given to the winners. Tournaments in either environment happen only in real time, and for a set period during each session or day.
The purpose of a slots tournament is to pit a pool of players against one another to see who lasts the longest. A slots tournament begins by issuing the same number of coins or credits to each of the players who then set out on their day, or weekend, of play. Because players are not using their own money, many say it makes for a great deal of truly competitive fun. In fact, many say it is not the prize they are looking to win, but the competition itself.
Some tournaments allow spectators to watch how the players wager their coins and credits, and see if there is any specific strategy or tactic that they successfully use. Many new slots players enjoy watching these events in order to see if they are playing to their own best advantage. For example, during a slots tournament a conservative player will be pitted against a very daring player, and the results for both styles of play will be easy for all of the audience to see immediately.
Casinos of both kinds like to host tournaments because they promote the game and bring a great deal of attention, as well as potential revenue, into the casino itself. Some casinos host “free” tournaments for members of their slots clubs, which encourages them to play more frequently.
While live casino’s and online casino’s slots tournaments are fundamentally identical in the way they are managed, the online slots tournaments eliminate all of the social interaction of the live events. Some casino tournament players are so successful that they make a living travelling from casino tournament to casino tournament. These people form their own little social set, and many have hysterical or fascinating stories about their time on the tournament circuits. The “upside” or benefit of the online slots tournaments is the complete absence of distractions of any kind, where a player can really focus on their strategy.
The popularity of these tournaments is increasing every year, and many of the larger casinos will actually make an entire week long event around the activities. There will be preliminary and qualifying rounds where numbers of players face elimination, and a lead up to a final weekend of heavy or high stakes competitive playing.
Currently most tournaments deliver a cash prize to the winner, as well as the second and third place finishers. These prizes can come from registration fees, corporate and casino sponsorship, and any fees paid by those who attended the events simply to watch the players win.
Winning online roulette NZ games are simply on pure luck as not much prior calculations and strategies are required to win these game.
Before delving into details lets us first understand what exactly is roulette? Roulette is a casino game, a spinning wheel, where the players bet, based on number and color. The wheel is spun in one direction and the ball in the opposite direction. After the wheel stops spinning, the better, checks whether the color and number matches according to his predictions or not. It is completely based on chance as no one knows as to where the balls will land.
However, there are many who claim to have discovered a fallacy in this game. They even try to prove the fallacy with the support of mathematics and statistics. According to them, it is likely that when a ball lands on the red color for consecutive five times, then the probability of the ball landing on the black in the next turn becomes higher. These assumptions are however not hundred percent scientific, but it surely can help a losing competitor arrange the bets accordingly. Thus this fallacy cannot help a competitor win, but definitely can help him in putting forward a cautious and controlled step in his next turn.
Another roulette game known as the Martingale system is unique in its own way. Here if the player loses, he has to keep doubling his bet until he wins.
The only way to win roulette is a proper money management and a calm composed mind. One also needs to carefully study the table and if possible strategize the next moves. If one fails to keep these in mind, money is sure to flow out from pocket at a great speed.
Roulette is undoubtedly the toughest game on earth.

Is the robot more intelligent than human beings? This one of the most hotly debated topic in the casinos nowadays.

Shanky Technology, one of the leading software making company declared, “Our poker bot plays extremely well, but you do need to find a profitable game environment to put it in. A lot of our customers are good players themselves who just use the program to hold their place in juicy games while they eat dinner, or play out their customer reward points in free roll tournaments.” Thus exposing a stark reality that there are times when men use these bots in substitute of themselves. These robots do not get tired, neither do they cross through any emotional swings while winning and losing and the biggest advantage is that they are programmed in a manner to be able to compete easily with the toughest of players. Robot gamblers are definitely a big competition to human players.
