Microgaming Jackpot Network Portal’s $17 Million Jackpot Payout Shatters World Records


Microgaming has announced that Jackpot Madness, the Microgaming Jackpot Network portal (, has exceeded a record-breaking $17,000,000 in total jackpot payouts. This exclusive milestone firmly establishes Jackpot Madness as the world’s number one online jackpot destination.


The portal features 5 progressive slots games, the oldest and most popular being Cash Splash. Introduced in October 1998, Cash Splash is a three-reel, three-coin single-line progressive slot machine connected to numerous casinos using the company’s proprietary software. The game’s popularity has grown rapidly in two years and is now available at more than 50 online casinos. Two additional progressive games, “Wowpot,” another three-reel, three-coin, single-line progressive slot and “Lotsaloot,” a three-reel, three-coin, five-line progressive slot game, were added last April. These were followed in August by two more games: “Supajax,” a video poker progressive and “Fruit Fiesta,” a three-reel, three-coin, three-line progressive slot. With thousands of people playing simultaneously across the entire Microgaming Jackpot Network, massive progressive jackpots are won on a daily basis.


The site keeps a running real-time jackpot counter for inquiring gamers, as well as links to Ligaz11 casinos offering Microgaming’s progressive games. It also features a casino search page where players can select a casino based upon their favorite jackpot game, current jackpot values or the price of placing a jackpot-enabled bet. Winner interviews are also featured on the site, as well as details about how much money has been won during the month as well as the total Jackpot Madness money paid.


A total of 580 lucky winners have shared in the $17,000,000 jackpot bonanza. The landmark win that pushed Jackpot Madness over the $17 million point was a $20,625.06 jackpot won by Patricia M. at The River Belle Casino December 16.


More than 55 players hit super jackpots in November alone, breaking all previously-held monthly payout records and totaling nearly 2 million dollars. December guarantees to be another exceptional month, with more than $1 million paid out in the first half of the month week already.

“ As anticipated, is hugely successful and drawing vast numbers of players to the over 60 casinos connected to the portal.” said Lisa Wycherley, Senior VP of Operations at Microgaming Systems. “With over $16,000,000 in jackpot payouts in a relatively short period of time, the popularity of the site has exceeded all of our expectations.”

Winning 7 Stud Play: Playing Slot Gacor Pairs on Fourth Street

  • by

How do you take advantage of a paired door card on fourth street?

I’ve found that the right play is not always the obvious one. Let’s look at two common scenarios that exist when you pair your door card:

You bet your Premium Pair on third street and now have trips.

You called with a three flush or straight and now have a non-Premium pair.

If you raised or completed the bring in on third street with your split pair and you had the good fortune to pair your door card, you now have Premium Trips. You have an excellent chance of winning the pot. You want to maximize the amount you will win.

Conventional poker thinking dictates slow play here. The theory is that you don’t want to be too aggressive lest you scare off all of the other players. Some experienced players and writers caution that you should bet the lower tier amount (you have the option of either the lower amount or the higher amount with a paired door card) or check on this street to avoid having everyone fold to your trips. They conclude that you want to win a large pot on the River, not just a small pot on fourth street.

I sometimes follow that advice. If I am playing against the truly clueless or with a maniac who bets just about everything I might just check here. Generally speaking, however, when I make Premium trips on fourth street (in the low and middle limit Stud games I play in), I make a full bet.

It’s certainly true that everyone else may fold if you bet the complete amount. But, on balance, that risk is worth the potential reward which generally seems to accrue from the more aggressive bet.

In the typical low and mid limit game that I play in, players will often make this bet when they don’t have trips. And since it’s made frequently by players who DON’T have trips, players who would fold against trips will often call against a paired Premium door card. My opponents expect the higher tier bet, trips or not. So I want to take advantage of these expectations.

The typical early aggression, bluffing and semi-bluffing (or just over betting) in these low and mid limits is also accompanied by a fair amount of disbelief and calling. NOT betting this hand, or betting the lower tier amount, would raise more questions and doubts than the full bet. By betting at the lower tier amount, and raising these questions, I might actually slow down or stop their betting action as the hand progresses.

So, typically, when I bet with the Premium Pair, I am often called by at least one and sometimes two, three or four other players who think that I’m misrepresenting my Slot Gacor hand (or who don’t have the sophistication to suspect that I probably have trips). This is advantageous for two reasons. The pot I am the favorite to win is made larger …


Ligaz11 Vegas Trip

  • by

 I had just learned hold’em long enough (5 months) to confidently take my game to Sin City. Thanks to PokerPages and my friend Jeff (Vegas resident), my dreams of becoming a famous baseball player had fallen, and now my dream of becoming a great hold’em player took over.


In early July I make my way down to LV from Seattle. After checking into my room I take a cold shower, it is 110 degrees out, a little warmer than I am used to. Feeling better I contact Jeff, my ol’ buddy from high-school(3 years ago) to hit the Luxor for some low-limit. I had never played live before and my friend Jeff helped me to relax, and show me the ropes.


Jeff sat next to my right in seat 5. I was glad he was right there because I was nervous as hell. I bought in for the minimum $40 dollars. My first hand 10 Jo hit a straight for me on the turn, and my first hand in Vegas was a winner. Even though I had about $75 now, I settled down and looked around noticing everyone, even Jeff, had 3-6 times as much money in front of them than I did. I was in for a rude awakening. I couldn’t win with top two pair at any time. My arrival was quick as was my entrance.


Discouraged, but not distraught, Jeff wanted me to play in an Orlean’s tournament the next night. Pondering the idea, I became more nervous. I had no idea what to expect. But I had one thing going for me, my confidence in No-limit. Besides, I came down here to play my first live games, and nothing was going to stop me.


It’s about 5 pm. the next evening, I meet jeff at the Excalibur. We BS for awhile, and catch up on old times, along with talking some poker strategy. It’s about 6:30 pm. and we head to the Orleans to enter our fees and names. We pick our seats. Jeff and I take our seats. Him in 10 and me in 6. As the playing field sat down, I found myself shaking in fear. This was all very new to me. The only thing that I had to go on was PP tournaments and books that I had read. About an hour had passed, and I relaxed- just a little. This was the last hand before the re-buy. Figuring it out in my head, I knew that I should probably just move it all in on this hand, and if it mucked, than I would just rebuy.


Well, I get J 4o. I figure most everyone is thinking the same way, except those who are over the re-buy limit of $300. Previously folding 95% of my ligaz11 hands, I was under the alotted amount with about $280. The flop goes Q x x. Seat 1 bets and 3 call about $100 before me, I call, along with at least 2 more to


Poisonous UFA Poker: A Poker Cop Mystery

  • by

There have been three poisoning deaths at the Las Vegas Majestic’s Poker Room. The Chief of Poker Room Security, Talbot, The Poker Cop, continues the investigation.

Detective Rook, Chief of the Las Vegas Strip Police, ignores Donny the Dealer’s story of the strange goings-on at the Sinners Table and to Red Penny and me he says, “This was not a total waste of my time. While you two were watching the betting and raising, I was watching, and taking notes, on the drinks. Before I see the bartenders and the waitresses I want an explanation of how poker room bar service works.”

Red Penny calls the Food and Beverage Manager, who sends down Ann Gilhooley, the Department’s Beverage Services Supervisor.

Ann Gilhooley, “Ancient Annie,” is a sour-faced curmudgeonly old lady who, according to Joey Rosenberg, was the waitress at the Last Supper. Annie, charming as ever, walks in and asks Rook, “Who the hell are you?”

Rook explains that he is, in fact, LVPD Detective Lieutenant Richard Rook, which earns him a heartfelt, “You don’t look like a cop. Tally looks like a cop. You look like one of my ex-husbands and he wasn’t no cop. Hey, Tally is this guy really a cop?”

“Mrs. Gilhooley,” says Red Penny, “I don’t think. . .” Annie turns her full attention to Red Penny, “Good, dear, keep that up.” She then gives the shocked Red Penny a long up and-down look, notes the long red hair, the perfect make-up, and the tight black leather dress. “Tally! Did you rent Latex Girl here from S&M; ‘R US?”

While I am truly enjoying Red Penny’s discomfort there is work to be done. I tell her, “Annie, love, I need you to be serious. Three poker players were poisoned tonight. We think it was in the drinks. Tell Detective Rook – yes, he is a cop – and Ms. Fallon – no, she is not, at least to the best of my knowledge, a dominatrix – how drinks get served in the Poker Room.”

The I-can-get-away-with-it-because-I’m-old smile fades quickly. “I’m sorry, Tally.” She turns back to Rook and Red Penny. “Listen up, you two, I’m only going to say this the once. For every six UFA poker tables that are open there’s a waitress assigned. They service their six tables for fifty minutes, at which time they get ten minutes off and the next fifty minute shift begins. After that, they go on to a different six tables. That way the tokes get spread out even between the blue boys and the purple gang. A good poker room waitress will earn a lot more than a good poker player. Trust me. When Mr. Rosenberg was still playing poker and I was still hustling drinks he borrowed money from me.

“The waitresses are supposed to take drink orders at each poker table every ten or fifteen minutes. Every visit to a table generates a drink ticket from their order pad. They write their initials and the …


Stanley Leisure and Casino

  • by

Internet casinos are a growing business in the United Kingdom, with several brick-and-mortar companies going online in the last few years. We spoke with Andy Mace, casino manager for U.K. gambling institution Stanley Leisure, to find out a little more about the company’s online ventures.

WINNERonline: Can you tell us a little bit about Stanley Leisure?

Stanley Leisure: Stanley is the second largest brick-and-mortar casino operator in the U.K. We have more than 600 betting shops and 30 casinos around the U.K. The company is 25 years old and is publicly traded, which gives us a lot of stability. We operate a sportsbook at and casinos at,, and

Wo: Can you transfer that brick-and-mortar experience to the online casinos?

SL: I believe so. I have 14 years experience working in land-based casinos, and my goal is to look after customers like we do at these casinos. We want to provide excellent service and sort out any problems that may arise.

Wo: Are most of your customers from the U.K.?

SL: A lot of people in the U.K. are familiar with the name, but approximately 70 percent of our customers are from the U.S.

Wo: Stanley offers a smaller selection of games than some other online casinos. Why is that?

SL: We decided it was better to do a small selection of games well rather than a large selection mediocre. We also don’t want to spread ourselves too thin.

Wo: recently offered a 2:1 Blackjack promotion. How was that received?

SL: Great. It got a lot of attention, and the casino was usually full to bursting. Every time someone would log out, someone else would log in. It was a good deal for players, but they still had to play well to come out ahead. It wasn’t designed to make money for the casino; we wanted to give something back to the players.

Wo: Do you plan to offer any similar promotions in the near future?

SL: We’ve actually got another Blackjack promotion running this week. We will be running a tournament between Monday and Friday, with daily prizes as well as an overall prize. The winner will be the person with the highest win percentage against wages bet. Players can sign up for the tournament at any of the three casinos.

Wo: Customer loyalty is an important aspect of any successful 789 casino. Can you tell us a little bit about Stanley’s VIP program?

SL: We offer regular players a higher betting limit – up to $1000 on blackjack. This is done on a request, one-on-one basis, and it can go back down again if the player wishes.

Wo: We know that some credit card companies are restricting the use of credit cards at online casinos. Has this been a problem for you or your customers?

SL: This has been a problem for everyone. The situation hasn’t been well thought out by the credit card companies, because it’s safer to send money back to the …

Is Your Judi Slot Online Box Big Enough?

  • by

Casino TechWe did an article on what it takes to run online casino software about a year and a half ago. But that’s the same as forever when it comes to life on the web, so we’ll take another look at the hardware and software demands of today’s multimedia games.

I’m fortunate in that I get to play casino games both as part of my job and as recreation. It just so happens that my home computer is rather different than my work machine, and this affords a great opportunity to compare the two in terms of how they perform.

For the technologically inclined, let’s look at the specs on the two different computers:

Box A – the home computer: A Celeron 400-based PC with 64 Meg of RAM, a 4 Gig hard drive and an obsolete graphics card. I bought it a little over 3 years ago. A system like this would go for about 200 bucks these days. Look in your community newspaper for someone trying to dump one if you’re interested.

Box B – the office computer: A comparatively new Pentium III 933 with 512 Meg of RAM, over 40 Gig of hard drive and a reasonable –though generic– graphics subsystem. This system is well under the $1000 mark, and is probably closer to $750.

Back in 1999, Box A was more than enough to drive the Judi Slot Online casino software of the day. In fact, it smoked! Chuck used to ask me how this or that game played for me at home ’cause his office computer kept choking. I loved it!

But that was then and this is now. These days, the high-end Internet gambling software is being defined by games with a 3D look-and-feel, games using avatars and extensive sound libraries. These games are resource hogs in no uncertain terms and they’re starting to bring Box A to its knees.

Before anyone gets too excited, though, it’s worth noting that most games play fine on Box A. It’s only the latest and greatest software versions that give it trouble. I know I’m stating the obvious, but this will get worse with time.

Box B on the other hand has proven more than enough to handle the current generation of casino games. In fact, it’s probably overkill. No casino game I’ve played has given it a single problem. I think we can draw a few conclusions from that experience:

  • The casinos are fond of claiming that you can run their games on a mouse-powered shoebox with no more memory than your car alarm beeper. Don’t believe it! A decent computer — Box B would be at the higher end of that group — makes a real difference when you play the latest games.


  • If you don’t care about the latest high-end games, don’t sweat it. The majority of software providers are not in the business of selling computers so they’ll be reluctant to push the technology envelope too far. They want as many players

Unsung Heros And Poker Online Pkv

  • by





It’s the nature of things that we should be more interested in today’s poker “heroes” and “superstars” rather than those of yesteryear. However, I am one of those who believe that you must be aware of history. Without it, you can neither learn from past mistakes nor put your own successes or failures into proper perspective. First, you win a few tournaments or you can’t put a foot wrong in cash games, and the next thing you know, you’ve become a legend in your own mind. Then, when the wheels come off, you start to flounder and cannot understand why the chips are not coming your way. After all, they should be coming your way. You’re a hero, aren’t you?


An awareness of history can also help you to avoid becoming a poker brat, one who thinks the poker world revolves around him and doesn’t appreciate that many people have worked very hard behind the scenes to make poker what it is today. The problem with brats is that they usually abuse dealers and social poker players, and therefore help to give poker a bad name, which in turn is not at all good for sponsorship.


So, here are a few words of thanks to some unsung heroes to whom we (European) poker players are indebted.


The first is the late Terry Rogers, bookmaker by trade, who introduced tournaments to Ireland and hence to Europe. Rogers went to Las Vegas in the late ’70s, where he met and befriended Benny Binion. Rogers opened the Eccentric Club in Dublin, and no-limit hold’em took off. Many of today’s great Irish poker players cut their teeth in the Eccentric Club: Donnacha O’Dea, Padraig Parkinson, Alan Betson, George McKeever, Scott Gray, Tom Gibson, Colette Doherty, and Liam Flood are but a few. Such was Terry Rogers’ influence that the crème de la crème of American poker players — Doyle Brunson, Jack Straus, and Stu Ungar — attended his tournaments at a time when Americans ventured abroad even less than they do now.


At about the same time, Barry DeLacy (general manager of the Rubicon Sporting Club in Wolverhampton) was also busy promoting cards in his casino. DeLacy was responsible for the first major tournament in England. The entry fee was huge for the times — £100! That’s chicken feed these days, but such were the humble beginnings of tournaments in Europe in the mid-1980s. The Rainbow Casino in Birmingham followed suit, and for many years its pot-limit Midland Masters was the best-attended tournament in the UK. In fact, it was the highlight of the English poker calendar, and only a staggering £100 to enter.


But the one person who really ignited the European poker scene must surely be Mickey Finn. Mickey wanted to get a better deal for poker players. He wanted better-structured tournaments, better organization, and better deals on accommodations. So, with help from Lothar Landauer, Matthias Ronnacher, and others, Finn set up the …

ESPN goes live with online Togel Singapore poker

  • by

US sports TV network ESPN, the home of the World Series of Poker, has launched a play-for-free online poker site with a freeroll tournament offering player a seat at Harrah’s 2005 World Series of Poker. The 11-week Degree® All-In Poker Challenge on is a series of weekly qualifying tournaments that lead to a final 500-player tournament in May, with the winner earning a seat in the Harrah’s 2005 World Series of Poker.


The site has been developed by Canadian-based software firm Micropower and will also offer users advice and tips including exclusive columns from ESPN’s “Jackpot” Jay Lovinger and poker guru Phil Gordon.


ESPN also plans to launch a wireless poker game later this year, where players will be able to play-for-free against up to nine computer opponents.


The game will be available via several major mobile service providers between its March launch and early summer.


The ESPN play-for-free site is the first time a major US broadcaster has entered the online poker sector, and it expected to be the first of several similar projects launched during 2005.


It also puts ESPN into direct competition with firms such as Party Poker, Poker Stars and Full Tilt Poker, who have spent heavily on marketing their play-for-free sites on US TV.


The dot net sites from existing online poker firms have been seen as a way around advertising restriction for eGaming in the US.


There are hopes it will simply grow the Togel Singapore market, and ESPN online poker is part of a major poker marketing drive entitled ESPN Poker Club, which also includes a major new TV drama series TILT, DVDs of the WSOP and a range of consumer poker products.


ESPN’s television networks will show 38 original hours of professional poker during 2005, beginning with the US Poker Championships on March 24 and continuing with 32 hours of coverage of the 2005 Harrah’s World Series of Poker from July.


To book or not to book


My esteemed colleague is protective of his previous life as a sports book manager and so he should be. But he makes my argument for me. Things have to lighten up.


The books have changed over the last 10 to 15 years and, don’t get me wrong, I like the corporates just fine. The bottom line is making everyone happy. I just think the players need to get a few more breaks, otherwise there will be fewer customers and that hurts the gaming business.


On the subject of prop bets, why shouldn’t the player have the right to win a parlay that books may consider a disadvantage to the house? Parlays are difficult to win in any form. Hey, you can go 3-1 (75 percent) and lose. The minimum number of teams you can parlay is three, which gives the house a distinct advantage. And, that’s fine. No problem.
