Terry Watanabe lost $127 million at the casino

The downfall of Terrance Watanabe or how to squander $127,000,000

By

I really don’t know how much 127 million dollars is. I mean, I know the number in an abstract way but I cannot even begin to wrap my head around how much money, real money it actually is. When I try to think of that sum, I think about Scrooge McDuck swimming around in his gold coins. So, Terrance Watanabe’s story is really unbelievable to me. In 2007, he went on a gambling downward spiral that made him lose an insane chunk of his family’s fortune at the Caesars Palace […]

Meet the computer that can beat anyone at No Limit Hold’em

By

It looks like Phil Hellmuth has met his match. The world poker champion has won the highest number of bracelets at the World Series of Poker. He’s also amassed more cashes at the WSOP, two facts that have no doubt led to him securing a spot in the Poker Hall of Fame. But it turns out a future Hall of Fame inductee could make Hellmuth look like an absolute amateur. And making matters worse is the fact the person we’re talking about isn’t even a person at all. The name […]

The most brutal live poker loss in the history of everything just went down in Las Vegas

By

There are bad beats in poker. And then there’s getting brutally punched in the stomach while you’re down. I’ve experienced quite a few bad beats, both playing online poker and live tournament poker. I’ve hit bullets and managed to get smacked out of a hand against pocket sevens when the flop dropped two more sevens to give my opponent a flop. I’ve even had four eights and saw myself rivered out of a win when my opponent notched quad tens. It happens a lot, not just online but live too. […]

The Take No Prisoners Gambling of the Old West

By

In one way or another, stories about the golden times of the Wild West have captured my attention and imagination since infancy. The old time movies and shows like Bonanza and Kung Fu made me fall in love with this time of high perils and high rewards. For a long time, I dreamt about cowboys, saloons, and quick draw duels at the break of dawn or noon. As I became older, this fascination expanded as my love for the games of chance grew. Gambling was a big part of life […]

Game Review: Football Frenzy

By

I’m a huge, huge soccer fan. So 2014 is definitely my year. I’ve already started betting on the World Cup 2014 and I’ve got my picks for each group (though truth be told, there are some groups I’m downright avoiding). So when I found out that we were developing a new World Cup game with our software partner, Real Time Gaming, I was stoked. Now I don’t have to wait for Brazil to experience the adrenaline rush that comes with the greatest sport in the world. Now, with Football Frenzy, […]

Las Vegas starts to accept Bitcoin

By

Heard about Bitcoin? Then you probably know that the digital currency, which isn’t created or distributed internationally by traditional banks, is taking the world by storm. And you probably also know that the digital currency is usually restricted to online purchases and transfers. So imagine our surprise when we learned that two Las Vegas hotel and casino properties have decided to accept Bitcoin onsite. The D Las Vegas Hotel and Golden Gate Hotel & Casino will soon accept Bitcoin from gamblers. Unfortunately, the currency won’t actually be accepted for gambling. […]

Tricks Learned From Casino Games

By

The way we live life, or that many of us try to live life, is by falling down, learning what made us fall in the first place and stand up again. Right? Many of us do try to learn from our mistakes so that we’re prepared to confront similar situations in a much stronger emotional and maybe even physical state. Having made this point clear, let’s use this focus on life, but in our gambling life. What do we learn from playing casino games after years and years of fun, […]

Guess who’s having a Santastic! Christmas?

By

We’re in total Christmas mode! It’s our most favorite time of the year. We love the gingerbread house decorating. Cutting down trees. Decorating those trees. Replacing the trees we cut down with prefabricated ones from Target because we quickly realized that the tree we cut down was too big to fit in our living room. We love hanging the mistletoe tossing the stockings up on the mantle. And we love stacking the presents under the tree. We love drinking eggnog, alcoholic or otherwise. We love the Christmas parties. We love […]
