The Table Basics
Roulette has been played since the 17th century, and emanates sophistication and elegance.
This game of pure chance is filled with suspense, while hopeful players eagerly wait for the roulette wheel to stop and allow the ball to rest on their chosen numbers. As luck would have it, roulette is easy to learn! Your simple objective as player is to predict the ball's final resting-place when the wheel stops spinning. The roulette wheel at Gold Club consists of 36 numbers plus zero and double-zero. Your wager on the roulette table can be placed on a single number, or be used to cover 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 12, or up to 18 different numbers during one spin. Here is a summary of the different roulette bets:
This is a wager on a single number, including zero (0) and double-zero (00). If the ball stops at your number, your bet pays 35 to 1.
This is a wager on two adjacent numbers in the roulette table, which is placed on the line dividing the two numbers. If the ball stops at either number, your bet pays 17 to 1.
Street bets cover three numbers. The chip is placed on the outer right boundary line of the roulette table, next to the corresponding row of three numbers. If either number hits, the street bet pays 11 to 1.
Corner bets cover four numbers. The chip is placed on the cross where the four numbers intersect. If any of the four numbers hit, your corner bet pays 8 to 1.
This bet covers the following numbers: 0, 00, 1, 2 and 3. The chip is placed on the outer right boundary line of the roulette table, between 00 and 3. If either number hits, your five bet pays 6 to 1.
A line bet covers the six different numbers in two rows of three numbers. For example: 4,5,6 plus 7,8,9). The chip is placed on outer right boundary line of the roulette table, where it is intersected by the line dividing the two rows. If any of the six numbers hit, your line bet pays 5 to 1.
On the short side of the roulette table are three boxes marked "2 to 1." By placing your chip in one of these boxes, you mark all twelve numbers above it (0 and 00 excluded). If the ball stops at either of these numbers, your bet pays 2 to 1.
You can bet on a group of twelve numbers by placing your chip in one of the three boxes marked "1st 12," "2nd 12," or "3rd 12." A winning dozen bet pays 2 to 1.
Red/Black, Even/Odd, Low/High Bets
A bet placed in one of the boxes on the left, long side of the table covers half of the roulette numbers (excluding zero and double zero). Each box covers 18 numbers. These bets pay even money, 1 to 1.
Where She Stops...Nobody Knows! Keep this important fact in mind when you're seated at the roulette table.
The most important way to walk away from the roulette table as a winner is to budget your money, and know when it's time to take your winnings and run! By scattering your bets on the roulette table, you will increase your odds of winning more in the long run. Instead of betting a stack of chips straight up on your lucky number 11, place only one chip straight up on 11, and use the rest to place corner bets. If you win, use winnings to increase your bets. If you lose, go back to the minimum bet.
Set aside a small portion of your total gambling till for wild impulse bets. If that lucky 11 has come up two spins in a row, and you are determined to place a bundle straight up on 11 during the next spin (even though your rationale is faulty), use your impulse betting till. If you lose, you will only lose a portion of your stake and can use the rest to place wiser bets.
Now go for a spin, and enjoy the suspense and thrill of roulette!
Rules for Playing Online Baccarat
Baccarat (correctly pronounced "BAH-kah-rah") has long been a favorite card game of high rollers, but even many more budgeted players as well! The rules are incredibly simple and can be mastered in a few minutes. The object of baccarat is to correctly predict whether the banker's hand will win, the player's hand will win, or the game will result in a tie.
The value of a hand is determined by adding the values of its individual cards. Tens and face cards count as zero, while all other cards count as their numerical value. After summing the total, only the last digit is used. Therefore, baccarat hands all have values from 0 - 9. The hand with the higher value wins. If the hands have the same value, the game results in a tie. Initially, both the banker and the player are dealt two cards. If the two initial cards total 8 or 9, the hand is called a "natural", and the game will end at that point. Otherwise, standard Baccarat "third card rules" (that Gold Club players need not remember) determine if a hand should receive a third and final card.
Winning bets on the player's hand are paid at 1:1 odds. A 5% commission is charged on winnings as a result of a bet on the banker, making the net odds on banker bets 0.95 to 1. A winning wager on a tie bet is paid at 8:1odds. If the game does result in a tie, bets on the banker or player are returned.

History of Bingo
HOW BINGO WAS BORN
Most Bingo players don't realize that the first bingo games can be traced back to 1530 in Italy. It originated as a "lottery" game called, "Lo Giuco de Lotto". Interesting, huh?
A couple of hundred years later, this type of lottery migrated over to France in the 1700s, it took the form of the Bingo we all know and love today.
THE FRENCH LOVE BINGO
Actually, the French were the first to play with Bingo playing cards, tokens … and what we all love most -- reading those numbers out loud!
Throughout the 1800s Bingo spread quickly in Europe. Typically, the "Caller" would draw from a bag full of wooden chips numbered from 1-90. Like today, the object of the game was to be the first to cover a vertical, horizontal or vertical row.
BINGO COMES TO AMERICA
In 1929, a game called "Beano" was played in a carnival near Atlanta, Georgia. Dried beans, a rubber stamp and a cardboard sheet were all that these Americans need to get their minds off the sting of the Depression.
It wasn't until a New York toy salesman named Edwin Lowe, observed how players shouted the word, "BEANO!!" after winner was the modern game of Bingo born.
LET'S SHOUT "BINGO!" OUT LOUD
Mr. Lowe introduced the game to his friends in New York where one of them mistakenly yelled "BINGO!!" for the first time in her excitement, and "Lowe's Bingo" was soon the talk of NYC. Lowe asked players to pay him $1 per year to allow them to call their games Bingo as well …
By the late 1940s, Bingo games sprung up all over the country with thousands of games being play every week. Today, Bingo games are found everywhere … even on the Net ;-)
