Often enough casino games can be perceived as difficult to learn, play and thus even win on. The complexities of such games are more inherent in what it takes to make them and when it comes to their aesthetics. In other words, the games are meant to look stylish and this by extension can make them appear intimidating. Also, the gaming technology has a degree of complexity which lends itself to the complex appearance of the game in question. However, the truth of the matter is that like anything that can be learned or mastered, casino games are no different and are actually very easy to play. With all this in mind, let us now take a brief yet informative look at your standard casino games and their inner workings.
All over the world, people revel in partaking in gambling activities, whether at a land-based or online casino, mainly due to the entertainment value, thrills and potential financial windfall they could receive.

I was web-meandering the other day when I stumbled on a story about nefarious dealings at a senior centre in Idaho. It made me smile and do an inadvertent air-punch, so I thought I’d share it with you!
About a year ago, Idaho police got a tip-off that there was illegal activity happening at the Twin Falls Senior Center. A group of pensioners met regularly to play poker, with a $20 buy-in. We all know poker’s much more fun when you can win actual money, but unfortunately cash gambling’s illegal in Idaho. The police raided the joint of iniquity and found around twenty pensioners indulging in the illegal activity.
The old folk were blissfully unaware that they had been breaking any laws, but have since started playing without putting any cash on the table. Doris Williams, who was 88 years old at the time, told the Times-News newspaper that their group of players has been toeing the line and playing without money since the raid, “but it isn’t as much fun.”
In honour of the gambling grannies, here’s a slot game for you to play – just for the fun of it! Of course, you can also register an account at Vegas Palms Online Casino and play for actual money. Have fun!
Poker has always been one of the most popular games in the casino, and with online casino’s offering their own versions of the classic game, that popularity has skyrocketed over the past few years. Nowadays you can’t flick through the hundreds of TV channels without stumbling upon a high stakes televised tournament of some kind.
Any of us who have ever played the game have dreamed of getting in on that action, but a good many of those games require buy-ins that can be in the thousands of dollars. That’s an amount that makes them prohibitive for all but the wealthiest of us, but there are still ways to get your online poker kicks without having to shell over a single penny of your own money.
The Fortune Lounge Group of casinos, which includes out own Vegas Palms, has a fantastic online poker portal called PokerTime, and on top of all the regular money tournaments, there are also poker freerolls that let users get in on the action for free, whilst still pocketing some very nice cash prizes provided by the casino.
A quick click on the Tournaments section of the PokerTime site will lead you to a free roll listing where you will find a large list of free games, as well as the day and time that they are scheduled to begin.
Many inexperienced poker players will find this to be a great way to learn the ins and outs of the game, without the risk of losing any money and it may also make you good enough to actually win a few bucks in the process. Who knows, maybe with a bit of practice you’ll be able to get good enough to make the move on up to the real money tables, where maybe, just maybe, you can win your way into one of those big money, televised tournaments.
