Three Casino Malaysia Steps to a Virus-free Life

Casino Tech

A lot has been said about the whole computer virus thing, especially lately, but what’s the real story? Well, I’ve been through the viral trenches and am here to tell all.

A virus is basically a miniature program that runs on your computer and does bad things. Two of the biggest questions about viruses (as far as we’re concerned) are: ‘Can I get one from a casino site or download?’ and ‘How can I prevent them?’

Let’s begin at the beginning. You can get a computer virus from any of the following sources: e-mail; downloaded software; software updates; ICQ; a web page; any document, program or application that you accept from your local network; any disk, diskette, tape, cartridge or other media you stick in your computer; or any software you install.

In other words, almost anything at any time.

For the Internet gambling community, that means any casino software, software update, casino web site, newsletter, or e-mail from a casino is a potential virus threat.

Scared? Don’t be, because the vast majority of those potential threats are only that – potential. With a little care, caution, and paranoia you can stay virus free.

Step one to a virus-free life is going to cost you a bit: get a good virus scanning program. As far as I’m concerned, that means getting Norton Anti-Virus (the 2002 Edition is the best so far), setting it to start automatically when you boot up your machine, telling it to perform “Auto-Scan” at startup, and enabling it to watch both your incoming and outgoing e-mail.

Personally, I run two virus scanners on my computers: Norton for e-mail and web pages, and another called AVP by Kaspersky Labs for larger system scans. Both are stable, powerful, reliable and serious anti-virus tools and they make …

Do the Asian2Bet Machines Deal Fairly?

 

 

All the recommendations in this article and in its accompanying strategy sheets are based on the assumption that the machines deal fairly, but rumors and hearsay abound in this area. One undisputed fact is that the Gaming Regulations of the State of Nevada, section 14.020, require fair deals. (Specifically, they require a machine that simulates a known manual gambling device like a deck of cards to have the same odds as one would expect from the manual device.) Most other jurisdictions, in the United States anyway, follow the lead of Nevada in this respect.

One author (Dan Paymar) reports that the machines can be jumpered to deal unfairly, presumably for use in those jurisdictions that do not have Nevada’s scruples. He reports he has observed machines that apparently cheat even in Nevada, specifically in the case of drawing one card to a four-card straight. He reports finding machines that are much more likely to return a card of the same rank as he discarded than mere chance alone would suggest. In other words, if he discarded a single four, he found he would draw another four about 50% of the time. This is wildly more than the true odds, which are 3 out of 47.

 

“That happens to me all the time,” I can hear you say. I know; it seems like it happens to me all the time, too. But when I actually measure it carefully, the results are always consistent with the true odds. I think the explanation is that when you play video poker, especially when you play fast, you enter a zone where you simply do not notice the normal events. Only the unusual things catch your attention. So when I measure it, I never write down a result either way unless I …

Citibank agrees to block online gambling with credit cards

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) Citibank, the nation’s largest credit card issuer, has agreed to block online gambling transactions using its credit cards, the state attorney general said Friday.

The agreement announced by the bank and Attorney General Eliot Spitzer is expected to significantly reduce illegal, underage and potentially addictive Internet gambling, Spitzer said. It applies to all Internet gambling transactions, not just those in New York, and goes into effect in 60 days.

”Americans now waste $4 billion a year on this pernicious form of gambling,” Spitzer said. ”With this agreement, we will cut off an enormous line of credit that was a jackpot for illegal offshore casinos.”

Other companies, including Bank of America, MBNA and Chase Manhattan Bank, also have begun blocking the gambling transactions, Spitzer said. Citibank controls about 12 percent of the nation’s credit card market.

Citibank also agreed to pay $400,000 to nonprofit groups that counsel and help families hurt by gambling additions.

”Citibank agreed to take these steps to help alleviate concerns raised by the attorney general about the impact that gambling on credit may have on New York residents,” said Citibank spokeswoman Maria Mendler. She added that Internet gambling is associated with higher rates of credit card fraud and delinquency.

Gambling could still be done through accounts funded by UFA players, similar to Off-track Betting systems, a spokesman for Spitzer said.

This is Spitzer’s latest agreement with a major financial institution. In May, Merrill Lynch & Co. agreed to widespread structural reforms and a $100 million penalty to end Spitzer’s investigation of conflicts of interests by its stock analysts. Spitzer said the analysts advised investors to buy stocks they privately called risky in order to land the firms as investment banking clients.

Lawmakers in Washington have been trying to ban Internet gambling since 1996. The …

Online Poker Player Trumps Record in Situs Judi Slot

LONDON — Online poker player “Shawn” has been added to the growing list of mega-jackpot winners at InterCasino.com after taking home $79,162 this weekend. Playing the “Super Jackpot” video poker game, Shawn’s win came from a simple 5-coin bet and the coveted royal flush. Shawn’s poker prowess made him the game’s largest-ever progressive poker player, beating “Palor’s” Oct 5, 2001 record by almost $50,000.

Luckily for player “Jess”, Shawn’s time in the sun was short lived. Within 24 hours of Shawn’s jackpot, his victory was trumped by more than $70,000 when Jess’ $149,986 win on the wildly popular “Rags To Riches” progressive made Jess the new king of the hill.

Although the odds of two progressive wins, on two separate machines, during the same weekend seems a staggering task even for the largest Las Vegas casinos; there is a mathematical explanation behind the good fortune at InterCasino. According to Steve Badger, author of “The Winners Guide to Online Poker”, the more popular the casino, the better the chances of progressive wins. “The chances of winning reflect how popular the casino is. It all depends on the amount of hands played.”

That’s how a couple of regular guys like Shawn and Jess can spend virtually nothing to win thousands by putting their finger of the click button. InterCasino’s jackpots simply grow and grow because they are among the biggest on the internet.

“I’m not at all surprised that Shawn and Jess did so well over the weekend. Super Jackpot has always been a great payer, and the rules are easy enough for any card player to understand. Rags to Riches is one of our most popular games and Jess follows in the footsteps of Togel Singapore winners who have won millions of dollars. I think we’ll be seeing a lot of …

Is a book on Awards worth making? You bet

Expected to be a TKO: Hillary Swank in ‘Million Dollar Baby’

Betting on the Oscars has gone way beyond office pools and awards-night parties.

Taking action on the Academy Awards has become a growing source of income for online gaming sites, with oddsmakers carefully calculating betting lines to attract wagers on every category from Best Picture to Best Documentary Short.

And a survey of oddsmakers returns this consensus: Unless your name is Jamie Foxx or Hilary Swank, don’t even bother writing an acceptance speech. Both are overwhelming favorites in the lead acting categories.

“Betting on the Oscars has increased a lot in the past five or six years and become a real event with our customers,” says Stuart Doyle, wagering director of Antigua-based gaming company BetWWTS.com. Doyle expects to handle more than $100,000 in movie wagers.

“The Oscars is still a drop in the bucket compared to sports,” says Leo Shafto, the head oddsmaker for mvpsportsbook.com in Costa Rica. “But it has increased enough that it’s become something of value across the [gambling] industry, and we are paying a lot of attention to it.”

Though most Oscar bets are only in the triple-figure range, says Shafto, extensive research goes into calculating Oscar odds.

At BetWWTS.com, for example, a panel of oddsmakers weighed several factors before posting odds on its Web site within an hour after the nominations were announced last month.

“We sit down as soon as the nominations come on TV and we come up with a fairly good idea of who the favorites in each category will be,” says Doyle.

“But we’ve already been doing our research way before that. We’ll look at the results of the other awards, like the Directors Guild or the Golden Globes, which are a big factor.

“We also go on movie Web …

A Goalkeeper With Qiu Qiu Terbaik Magic

GORDON BANKS, ENGLAND’S NO.1, HAS DIED AGED 81

“I was ready to celebrate, but then this man Banks appeared in my sight like a kind of blue phantom.”

Even Pele was stopped in his tracks by Gordon Banks, the world’s best goalkeeper in his day, who has died aged 81.

A World Cup winner with England in 1966, he is perhaps best remembered for his wonder save from Pele four years later in Mexico, a stop often dubbed the greatest in football history.

Almost half a century later, Banks’ diving flip to deny the world’s best player is still astonishing in its athleticism, snatching victory from certain defeat, an almost extra-terrestrial action on the football field.

A Goalkeeper With Magic

His nonchalant trot back head down across his goalmouth to defend the ensuing corner shows the other side of his character – a decent, modest yeoman warrior not given to blowing his own trumpet loudly.

 

In both tournaments Banks was in imperious form and might have won a second Jules Rimet trophy had he not mysteriously gone down with food poisoning on the eve of England’s quarter-final against West Germany.

 

The fact he was the only player to fall ill, from a suspected contaminated beer, and he was England’s mighty guardian, was very suspicious.

 

“Of all the Qiu Qiu Terbaik players to lose, we had to lose him,” rued manager Alf Ramsey.

 

To this day no proof of foul play has come forth but rumours abound that the CIA wanted England out so that Brazil would win the World Cup and in its elation the country would not fall to the communists.

 

Banks was the unlucky hero whose beer was duly poisoned as part of a political game, so the theory goes, but other bizarre …

The J. League Qq Poker Online goes down to the wire… yet again

 

 

At a time when the J. League is crying out for a team to take the championship by the scruff of the neck, the top five continue to falter in their race for the title.

 

Kashima Antlers continue to lead the way on 54 points, but they will be disappointed with their most recent 0-0 draw at home to the defensive-oriented Albirex Niigata.

 

Urawa Reds are a point further back in second, after they beat already relegated Consadole Sapporo 2-1 in front of 28,901 fans at the Sapporo Dome in their most recent clash.

 

The Reds were forced to come from behind Qq Poker Online after the league’s second-top scorer Davi notched his fourteenth goal of the season for Sapporo, before goals from Tatsuya Tanaka and Edmilson saw all three points head back to Saitama.

 

Nagoya Grampus are the team to have stumbled the most in the run home. The Aichi club are on 52 points, but have picked up just four points from the fifteen on offer in their last five J. League games.

 

Nagoya crashed to a 2-1 defeat to Kashiwa Reysol at a sold-out Kashiwa Hitachi Stadium last time out, and controversy reigned in the compact stadium when referee Yuichi Nishimura incorrectly ruled out a Frode Johnsen strike for offside. Although Nagoya went on to open the scoring through Yoshizumi Ogawa, late goals from Minoru Suganuma and Popo saw them crumble to a disappointing defeat.

 

Oita Trinita were held to a scoreless draw by relegation candidates JEF United in front of 23,517 fans at the Kyushu Oil Dome, while Kawasaki Frontale were beaten 2-1 away at Omiya Ardija thanks in no small part to a wonder strike from Omiya striker Klemen Lavric.

 

Oita are fourth in the table …

She’s got one hand in my Pkv Poker pocket

 

 

Even a blind squirrel occasionally finds an acorn. I permed my five strongest fancies in doubles and upwards last week, in what proved to be the tastiest Canadian since Alanis Morissette. Speaking of the diminutive whiny artiste, she once wrote a song with the following lyrics, ‘It’s like 10,000 spoons when all you need is a knife, isn’t it ironic? The answer is no. If you’re looking for a knife, the cutlery drawer should be the first port of call, searching in some sort of spoon factory was flawed from the very beginning.

 

There’s no doubting the irony surrounding Sunday’s FA Pkv Poker Cup semi final between Boro and West Ham; two English managers will face off in England’s greatest competition, on St George’s Day, fighting to reach the Cathedral of English football; the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff. Both teams have been priced up at 6/4 to win the match, after securing victory in the warm up earlier in the week, the Boro are a tentative pick.

 

Chelsea are a far more confident selection when they meet Liverpool in the other semi. Liverpool may have had the rub of the green in European competition against Jose’s superstars, but the Champions have handed the Reds a couple of real spankings in the Premiership. At 11/10, Chelsea are a boot-filler.

 

Adding a virtual Champions League playoff to a North London derby is like pairing lager with a chicken madras; a mouth-watering prospect. Arsenal are finishing the season like a train; chalk up this battle to the Gunners at 4/5, as the war for four escalates.

 

Bolton’s demise has been grossly exaggerated, only Chelsea and Man U have won at the Reebok since August. Big Sam’s gang host a Charlton team that collected three points against Pompey …

Film Zyn pouchessmoking warning doesn’t go far enough, critics say

 

 

The decision by the Motion Picture Association of America last month to begin using its rating system to warn parents when movies “glamourise” smoking was Hollywood’s first – and to some critics of the industry, long overdue – acknowledgement of the powerful role movies play in creating thousands of new smokers every year.

 

But the MPAA stopped well short of applying a restrictive R rating to all pictures in which there is smoking, or even when the presence of cigarettes is “pervasive,” a move that would have cost the studios a large part of their most lucrative cash crop: children under 17, who also just happen to be the most impressionable group of potential smokers. And that left anti-smoking organisations fuming.

 

“What they’ve done is inadequate,” says Ellen Vargyas, general counsel of the American Legacy Foundation, an anti-smoking organization. “Basically they said, `We’ll look at smoking, and if the spirit moves us, we may issue a warning.’ But there are no standards.” And American Medical Association chairman Cecil B. Wilson huffed that by failing to make all movie smoking R-rated, “the MPAA has ignored the gravity of the health threat that on-screen smoking poses to children and teens.”

 

As one of America’s most powerful corporate cartels, the Hollywood studios can afford to give ground grudgingly, and when they do, they don’t like having smoke blown in their face. “There is a very, very small fringe that has taken an unyielding, and increasingly unreasonable position on this,” says Seth Oster, executive vice-president for communications of the MPAA. “And they fail to recognize anything as being constructive if it falls short of their extreme demands.”

 

The MPAA has long insisted that its rating system – devised 40 years ago to ward off the threat of government …
