Record Slot Jackpot Waiting to be Won

Jackpot Mania’s Rags to Riches Progressive Slot Machine will soon break the record for the largest slot machine jackpot payout in online gambling history.

The current record was set nearly a year ago on June 17 when Sharon P won $171,893.53 playing the CashSplash Progressive Slot Machine at King Solomons Online Casino.

Rags to Riches has already topped $200,000 and will continue to build until someone wins.

If the pot continues to build without a winner, Rags to Riches may surpass the record for the overall largest online progressive jackpot. The mark was set in March when a player nicknamed CREED won $235,661.88 on the Caribbean Poker progressive at The Sands of the Caribbean.

Rags to Riches Jackpot is now $UNKNOWN

Sharon P’s Record Slot Jackpot is $171,893.53

CREED’s Record Caribbean Poker Jackpot is $235,661.88

Maximize your Gambling Time

Online gambling can be a very alluring, very lucrative pastime. But it can also be very time-consuming. So what’s the best way to free up your time to gamble – short of quitting your job and becoming a recluse? Here are a few suggestions:

  1. Watch less television. Avoid getting sucked into summer re-runs this year and make better use of your time. Better still, get a high-speed connection to surf the Web and take up channel surfing when the new TV season starts up again.

 

  1. Learn to delegate. Time is money! You can’t clean the house, wash the car, walk the dog and keep your place at the blackjack table. Make sure everyone else is doing their fair share – and your share, too – of the work around the house or office.

 

  1. Spend less time downloading. … and more time playing! Downloading can eat up valuable game time. Play no-downloads or plan your downloads for mealtimes.

 

  1. Organize your schedule to include more time online. Get up an hour earlier or pick up your drycleaning on the way to work. Pencil in an extra hour each day for online gambling and enjoy time well spent.

 

  1. Go play with your friends. Arrange to meet your friends at a multi-player casino instead of going out for a beer. Most sites have a multi-player feature that allows you to play and chat at the same time.

 

  1. Rent fewer movies. Cuddling on the sofa with a good movie is a great way to spend the evening – once in a while. Shake things up by going online with your partner to play a few hands of blackjack. And who knows? They might like it.

 

  1. Work fewer hours. Back in the good old days we used to work eight hours a day, five days a week. Overtime was something you’d sit through at a hockey game. Cut out of work a little earlier, at the risk of losing your job (and your sanity).

 

  1. Learn to have more fun. It’s okay to enjoy the finer things in life, like gambling. Really. You probably won’t be able to solve the energy crisis anytime soon, so have some fun while there’s still time.

 

  1. Cash in those banked days off. If you’ve been looking for the perfect way to spend your hard-earned days off but you can’t really afford a week in Vegas or Atlantic City, try spending your holidays gambling online from home. There’s no airline ticket to buy, and with a little luck, you might win just as big.

 

  1. Keep your job, but quit worrying. Worrying is unhealthy, unproductive, unattractive and just about every other “un” thing in the book. It’s also a big fat waste of time. Avoid losing your shirt by playing with a cool, clear head.

 

Check out our online casino directory for a few suggestions on where to play – if you’ve got any time left. And for more information on time management, go to MindTools.com.

Online เว็บตรงสล็อตแตกง่าย ที่สุด Gambling: Natural Evil (or Only Natural)?

Online gambling has evolved into a billion dollar e-business since its inception in the mid ’90s and that count is expected to triple over the next few years. Not bad for an industry whose humble beginnings were discovered in the tombs of ancient Egypt.

Earlier on in the game, dice and cards were important divination tools used by shaman priests during natural religious rituals. The luck of the draw or the roll of the dice was believed to carry powerful messages and links to the future. The discovery of ‘loaded’ dice in Egyptian tombs suggests that some pharaohs may have been compulsive gamblers. And it wasn’t uncommon for ‘common’ people to lose their shirts over a game of dice. All unpaid debts would have to be worked off and what better way to punish those debt-heavy commoners than to get them to help build Egypt’s great pyramids.

By the time the church entered the scene, gambling’s roots were set deep into the fabric of popular culture. Naturally, the church objected to any form of divination and betting for money was considered a cardinal sin; the promise of instant wealth was said to induce misery and incite hostile conduct. But that didn’t deter at least a handful of clergymen from misappropriating church funds.

It wasn’t until the mid-nineteenth century that organized casinos made their first appearances in Europe. Profits from these casinos helped to finance the construction of new roads and other entertainment venues. France’s infamous casino in Monte Carlo would attract the interest of other stone-broke, seaside governments.

In a sense, it was just a matter of time. Like those seaside casinos, online gambling first washed up along the shores of indigent resort countries. And like those past cultures, online gambling is representative of the way we live today. We’re buying our groceries online, trading stocks online and getting dates online. Gambling has made its way out of dark, dank tombs and into wired boardrooms and bedrooms. Technology now allows us play anywhere and anytime, but the overall experience remains the same. Net gambling continues to deliver the same charge of excitement. It stimulates, it offers hope and it just feels good. It unleashes our innermost natural animal instincts.

Don’t get me started on casinos that install the short-pay, downright stinky versions of VP’s that target the uneducated player – outrageous!

And, there are quite a few เว็บตรงสล็อตแตกง่าย ที่สุด casinos out there, probably near you, that deliberately install fewer VP’s because most casinos are mandated that games of chance with skill involved must have higher payouts. Therefore, slots impact the casino’s bottom line in a more profitable fashion. You will also receive more slot card points towards comps at a slot machine that any VP version.

Video Poker Made Easier (Winning Strategies for Serious Players) offers more information for all VP’s including newest versions. Writing this book about a favorite casino game, was a labor of love–a fun game with serious payouts. We include VP book in our Premium Offer along with Slots book, four-card strategy set and Casino Gambling Tips booklet for one low price at our site.…

Soccer – Koeman voices Wanyama support

Ronald Koeman is expecting midfielder Victor Wanyama to feature for Southampton against West Brom after a deadline day move failed to materialise. The 24-year-old former Celtic midfield powerhouse handed in a transfer request at St Mary’s to try and secure a transfer away from the South Coast, but the Saints held firm with their line that Wanyama was not for sale. And head coach Koeman is confident that Wanyama now has his focus firmly on his immediate future with the Saints, with the Saints 6/4 with bet365 to win at The Hawthorns. Koeman told reporters: “We know the future, Victor knows the future and I spoke to Victor and he’s back with a real focus for the team – if he’s back like that, he’s part of the team. “When I spoke to Victor, already it was a different person than he was in the last week of the transfer window. It’s possible that Victor will start this weekend. “If the player shows real commitment to everybody at the club, I can forget what happened in the last week.”

Soccer – Pulis hints at Berahino return

West Brom head coach Tony Pulis has hinted strongly that striker Saido Berahino could feature against Southampton this weekend. The England Under-21 frontman was eager to push through a deadline day move to Tottenham Hotspur, with Albion holding firm in their desire to keep him at the club for the time being. And, while Pulis remains none too pleased with his player’s actions, he is content to move on and bring Berahino back into the Baggies fold. He told BBC Radio WM: “Saido’s been exploited by a system I’ve said I don’t like and I think it should be changed. “The fact that he wants to play for a top team, I wish most of the players here would have those expectations and ambitions. “The problem Saido has is in the way he’s gone around it. He’s not shown the respect to people around this club that he should have.” West Brom are 11/5 with bet365 to defeat the Saints, with Pulis waiting to see if record signing Salomon Rondon has recovered fully from his midweek international duty with Venezuela.

Sheriff Advises Poker Pubs To Fold ‘Em

TAMPA – Five local bars were warned to stop their weekly Texas hold ’em poker tournaments Tuesday.

Detectives for the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office visited Dogwater Cafe, Babalouies and the Prime Time Sports Grill in Tampa, the L.A. Hangout in Lutz and the Tally- Ho Pub in Temple Terrace to ask bar owners to “shut down the games,” said Debbie Carter, spokeswoman for the Hillsborough sheriff’s office.

Carter said detectives responded to complaints received Tuesday and delivered copies of state gambling statutes to the bars.

Run by a local marketing company in about 20 Hillsborough and Pinellas bars, the poker tournaments are free to participants. Players are not required to pay a cover charge or make any minimum purchase.

At most locations, those finishing first, second or third have received a prize, usually a gift certificate to the establishment ranging from $10 to $30.

Florida Statute 849.08 states in part: “Whoever plays or engages in any game at cards, keno, roulette, faro or other game of chance, at any place, by any device whatever, for money or other thing of value, shall be guilty of a misdemeanor of the second degree.”

Despite the warning, the Dogwater Cafe, on Hillsborough Avenue, did not cancel its Judi Poker Online tournament Tuesday night.

“I’ll go on with the games and not offer any prize,” owner Lee Krejci said. “The police basically told me not to have the tournaments at all, but the way the law was explained to me, it’s OK without a prize.

“I thought to be gambling, a player had to invest some money, but I guess not.”

The Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office investigated the barroom tournaments in its jurisdiction and determined the games are legal because participants “are not putting up any money to play,” sheriff’s spokesman Tim Goodman said last week.

Detectives have not changed their stance on the games, Pinellas sheriff’s spokesman Mac McMullen said Tuesday. “But they are still being looked at.”

Champps Restaurant & Bar, at Tampa’s International Plaza, which has hosted tournaments for seven weeks, had its usual crowd of about 50 poker players Tuesday night.

As usual, players did not win gift certificates, only entry to a tournament in which the winner will receive a trip to Las Vegas.

“When we finish with our 10-week commitment to the poker tournaments, that will be the end of poker for us,” said Diego Cordoba, Champps’ general manager.

“As a company with locations across the country, we have decided not to continue because we are running into trouble with law enforcement in Michigan and the Carolinas and other places.

“I would like to continue; our crowds have grown every week.”…

Weekend of Dominoqq Online upsets

 

 

Last weekend’s string of unpredictable results in the English Premier League has been mirrored in Australia proving the A-League remains as competitive as ever.

 

While Hull City were shocking Arsenal and Wigan upsetting big spending Manchester City, closer to home joint league leaders Sydney FC and Melbourne Victory both lost matches they were widely anticipated to win.

 

With crowds down significantly on the Dominoqq Online previous campaign and the introduction of the two new Queensland teams delayed for 12 months, it was not the set of scorelines A-League doomsayers were predicting.

 

Football’s popularity is constantly tested at this time in the Australian sporting calendar.

 

The traditional football codes – AFL and rugby league – stage their respective showpiece deciders over two weekends in late September and early October while round ball officials simply pray to come through unscathed.

 

But Adelaide United’s surprising passage to the AFC Champions League semi-finals has already propelled Australian football into continental minds this past week. And over the weekend unlikely victories for bottom-placed Wellington Phoenix and erratic Queensland Roar generated more column inches.

 

Wellington stunned Sydney by coming from behind to register their first win of the season and their first A-League triumph in the calendar year.

 

Phoenix coach Ricki Herbert had been given the dreaded vote of confidence during the week but despite seven personnel changes – including both first choice central defenders and No.1 goalkeeper Glen Moss – his side prevailed with Tim Brown rifling home a 76th minute winner.

 

“It’s been a difficult period and although there’s a long way to go, it’s a nice one given the circumstances,” Herbert said afterwards. “There’s a lot of belief in this group and this was a real testament to the boys. They really stood up for a cause.”

 

Queensland undid 10-man Melbourne with late goals from youngsters Michael Zullo and Tahj Minniecon, a pair of strikes which conjured up more than a hint of a similar turning point last season.

 

12 months ago, Zullo and Robbie Kruse scored against Wellington on their A-League debuts to propel the Roar into a 12-match unbeaten run which saw them narrowly miss winning the premiership on the final day of the season.

 

Even coach Frank Farina recognised the parallels and remains convinced his side can push Sydney and Melbourne all the way for the title this year.

 

“I’ve told the players over the past few weeks if we continue to play in the manner we have been playing things will turn. Tonight was the night that it turned for us,” Farina assured Queensland supporters.

 

Next up for the Roar is Sydney away this Friday.

 

Meanwhile, exhausted Adelaide – playing just three days after disposing of Japanese greats Kashima Antlers in the AFC Champions League – put away champions Newcastle thanks to a second-half brace from Brazilian Cristiano.

 

“They’ve gone through five games in 16 days and that’s a massive effort,” coach Aurelio Vidmar said. “There was a bit of doubt in my mind tonight about how they were going to come up and they were a bit flat.

 

“But for the boys to go out and really squeeze every last bit of energy they had in their bodies was a superb effort.”

 

The race to become the league’s leading goalscorer is also closer then ever before at this stage of the season.

 

Six players, from six different clubs, are tied for the lead with four goals apiece including 2007/08 Golden Boot winner Danny Allsopp of Melbourne.

 

Queensland’s Scottish playmaker Charlie Miller scored in each of his first four A-League appearances to break Kevin Muscat’s record while Cristiano, Perth’s Eugene Dadi, Mariners striker Matt Simon and Kiwi Shane Smeltz complete the list.

Germany Weeps After Italian Smash & Bandarqq Grab

 

 

So the German dream is over. A nation awash in a party mood for the past three weeks sits in stunned disbelief at the cruel way Italy snatched two goals at the death in Dortmund.

 

The schwarz-rot-gold clad millions had finally come to believe that the team of apparent no-hopers led by a novice coach living in California could actually lift the trophy. As Jurgen Klinsmann’s team advanced and especially after they overpowered Sweden and then won a penalty shoot-out with the powerful Argentinians, the public fervour became a tidal wave capable of carrying the team all the way to the cup.

 

Had the Nationalmannschaft managed to hold out only another ninety seconds they probably would have had at least a finger on the trophy, given Germany’s prowess at penalties and the ever increasing tsunami of home support.

 

But for all the pints of smudged face paint, the resonating chants of ‘Wir fahren nach Berlin’ (We’re going to Berlin) echoing through the nation’s undergrounds, the noisy carnivals in the street that went on long into the night, the bare breasts glistening with black, red and yellow poster paint (you should have been in Munich), the fluttering flags on speeding cars and the saturating 24/7 media hyping of the German team, in the end the Bandarqq hosts were fairly and squarely undone by a better football team.

 

No one could dislike Italian football’s cynical gamesmanship more than I, but gli azzurri deserved their semi-final victory. Marcello Lippi’s men played stoutly in defence like Italians always do, but also knew how to turn the screw when it mattered with sustained pressure from an impressive midfield.

 

Their explosion at the start of extra time when they hit the woodwork twice was proof of their potency and the two goal salvo at the death came courtesy of improvised moments of superior individual technique. In attack they looked the more honed and more incisive of the two teams, producing passing triangles with rapier thrusts on the edge of the German box and they understood how to manage the rhythms of the game better than the hosts, for all their passionate endeavour.

 

Italy dominated possession almost 60 – 40, no mean feat against the home nation playing a World Cup semi-final at such an intimidating venue as the Westfalen Stadion, where 65,000 are perched right on top of the field.

 

The Germans I know were utterly speechless after the final whistle. Football can be so cruel and so painful, but we will always come back for more. In the tearful, inconsolable aftermath of another host nation crashing out following a remarkable ride of euphoria, let us hope we can see more of Klinsmann’s heroic team, who had to endure universal scorn before the finals yet almost pulled off the greatest prize of all before their lack of class was finally exposed on a stifling night in Dortmund.

 

Let us hope too that we have not seen the last of Klinsmann as a coach following his remarkable playing career. Above all, let us wish the wonderful scenes of jubilation across Germany for the past three weeks give birth to a more positive view of that nation within and outside its borders, a reinvented land that is friendly and open to allcomers. Danke schon, Deutschland.

HEAT UP YOUR WINTER WITH ACTION-PACKED CHIPPENDALES SLOTS AND ONLINE CASINO SINGAPORE

 

 

Most of the games you’ll find at Titan Casino online are geared more toward male audiences. Browse the themes of the hundreds of slot machine games, and you’ll find manly superheroes, masculine sports like football, and hot women like Marilyn Monroe and Pamela Anderson. But if you dig deeper, you might also uncover the occasional treat for the ladies. Case in point: the Chippendales slots game.

 

For three-plus decades, Chippendales has been one of the world’s most popular dance troupes. With erotic dances featuring men in bow ties and cut-off shirts, the show has been entertaining women everywhere. It also seems to be heading to the big screen soon and is of course already parked at your favorite online casino as well. Read on.

 

Chippendales’ History

Chippendales originated in Los Angeles in 1979, the brainchild of innovators Paul Snider, Somen Banerjee, and Bruce Nahin. It was Snider who first devised the concept of the all-male strip show, a foreign idea to entertainment moguls back in the 1970s. The entrepreneurs designed the distinctive costumes and opened their shows to the public, and it wasn’t long before they were making money off of a largely female audience – at the time, unheard of for an “adult” club.

 

Chippendales built a sterling reputation over time because of its artful staging, precise choreography and of course, the hottest dancers. The club’s fame helped to legitimize stripping as a form of popular entertainment; i.e., it’s not just for seedy lounges anymore. Today, Chippendales stages shows in a $10 million theater built just for them at the Rio All Suite Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas and best online betting in Singapore. Go ahead and take a look at the Chippendales official site. If that’s not success, we don’t know what is.

 

Chippendales at the Movies?

Chippendales’ success in L.A. and Vegas has gone mainstream, and there’s now hope of it becoming a hit Hollywood movie as well. According to Variety, there’s talk of an upcoming production start date for “I Am Chippendales,” produced by Permut Presentations and Sentinel Pictures.

 

The two studios are in talks with Alan Ball – writer of “American Beauty” and creator of “True Blood” – to direct the new project. The story will be based on Rodney Sheldon’s book, which chronicles not only the rise of Snider and Banerjee, but also their downfall. The two businessmen eventually fell into a life of crime, pleading guilty to attempted arson, racketeering, and murder for hire.

 

The Chippendales story might be a chilling one, but the dancers are still hot, and so is the Titan Casino slot game.

 

Let’s Play Chippendales Slots

When you play Chippendales slot machines, you’ll have all kinds of different ways to win. As you watch the dancers spin and gyrate across the wheels, you’ll see five reels, 20 paylines and countless permutations that could pay you big money.

 

There are also bonus rounds. There’s the Sizzling Spin Bonus, triggered by the scatter symbols landing on reels 1, 3 and 5 simultaneously, which gives you an extra dance routine and a bonus round with a chance for a cash prize. There’s also the Symbol Strip, which is just what it sounds like: the Chippendales dancers put on a show for you, and with each layer of clothing they remove, you win more money.

 

Winter may be right around the corner, but with Chippendales dancers in the house, it’s getting hotter than ever. By playing Chippendales slot machines at Titan Casino, you get a chance to catch a sexy show and win a few bucks, too.

 

If that’s not your cup of tea, plenty of other hot games like Titan Casino’s Marilyn Monroe slot machines are also on offer.…

Online Togel Lottery to replace online casino and sports betting in the U.S.

 

 

Internet Gambling Prohibition and Enforcement Act of 2006, signed into law by President George W. Bush last Friday, October 13, 2006, will not prohibit but rather enhances live remote casino table game provider Kenilworth Systems Corporation’s Roulabette(TM) System.

 

Online LotteryChairman and Chief Executive Officer Herbert Lindo stated: “Internet gambling was always outlawed in the U.S. Las Vegas lobbied to make it legal to allow casino players to wager, from home or other remote locations, directly with the casino of their choice. With the credit card prohibition, that appears to become improbable.”

 

Roulabette(TM) will be primarily deployed in conjunction with Lottery Systems. Digital satellite and cable subscribers will be able to go to their local lottery agents and make cash deposits and/or collect winnings, in the same manner as if they are purchasing lottery tickets, using pre-encoded Roulabette(TM) Play Cards inserted in the lottery terminals.

 

“Our basic patent encompasses remote satellite broadcasts and a pending application is directed to having exclusively state lotteries and other authorized public agencies manage all the cash handling and distribution. Using lotteries, that can only by law, accept cash deposits, concerned citizens and legislators will be assured that the high school student and college freshman will not be able to participate. By using the lotteries database, the compulsive gambler can be identified and, if necessary, limited or shut down. The additional revenue collected from the lottery will be available to fund state activities such as boost school aid and teacher’s salaries.” Lindo added.

 

The Roulabette(TM) program will include entertainment and commentators to assist players with the rules and regulations of the games. Live casino table game action may also be offered on slot machines and video lottery terminals, as an alternative and change of pace from native Togel games.

 

Party Gaming Poker Suffers 90% Down in Revenue

 

PartyGaming’s online poker site, Party Poker, saw its share price drop another 13 percent on Tuesday, prompting analysts to suggest that its withdrawal from the US market in the wake of new US gambling law, may have accounted for a 90 percent drop in revenue.

 

Following its exit from the US market the company also made the decision to remove a ticker from the site which advertised the number of virtual tables in use and the number of players online.

 

Comparing Saturday night’s poker traffic with the previous week, Panmure Gordon’s Ivor Jones revealed, ‘Our very tentative estimate would be that rake and tournament fees would have been down more than 80%. Real money play appears to have picked up sharply at the poker sites which continue to operate in the US.’

 

A spokesperson for PartyGaming said the player and table number tickers had been removed because it did not want rival operators to use this information against it. One such rival, Israeli-owned PokerStars, has already begun an aggressive recruitment campaign in an attempt to leapfrog PartyGaming as the world’s largest poker operator.

 

Julian Easthope, a UBS analyst, said, ‘Liquidity drives revenues and PartyGaming will more than likely lose its market leading position.”

DICE BONE ROLLING HISTORY. PART 1 TOGEL HONGKONG

 

 

Dice have a history as old as the history of man. Dice in various forms are the oldest gambling instruments known. Artifacts of dice games have been found in the tombs of ancient Sumeria and Egypt. Dice were notoriously popular in later Greek and Roman times. The majority were made of bone (like the one shown below) or ivory. Others were made of bronze, agate, onyx, jet, alabaster, marble, rock crystal, amber, porcelain, and other materials. Etruscan dice found near Rome and made about 900 B.C. are similar to the dice of today, with the opposite faces adding up to seven: 1:6, 2:5, 3:4. Similar dice have been found in Britain in the prehistoric earthworks of Maiden Castle.

Sophocles claimed that dice were invented in Greece by Palamedes, who taught the game to the soldiers at the siege of Troy 3,000 years ago.

 

Herodotus attributed the invention of dice to the Lydians, who gambled as a diversion from the great famine in the days of King Atys.

 

In reality, dice had existed for thousands of years before Troy was founded and before the Lydians had a king.

 

Man’s very earliest written records mention dice and dice games… and crooked dice, as well. Archeological evidence points to the fact that dice games were played by both peasants and pharaohs in ancient Egypt. King Rameses III (c. 1182-1151 B.C.) had himself portrayed on the high gate of the temple of Medinet Haboo playing a dice game with two ladies of his harem. Ancient Egyptian religious writings mention dice games that are played by the spirits of the departed in the underworld.

 

Primitive tribes all over the globe have gambled with dice of many curious shapes and markings. The American Indian, the Aztec and Maya, the South Sea Islander, the Eskimo, the Africans… all played dice games, whether using plum and peach stones, pebbles, seeds, bones, deer horn, pottery, walnut shells, beaver teeth, or seashells.

 

Indeed, gambling has not been confined to any one nation or period in time. Tacitus wrote of the Germani in A.D. 99:

 

“They practise dice play, at which one will naturally wonder, soberly, and quite as if it were a serious business, with such hardihood in winning and losing, that, when they have nothing more left, they stake their freedom, and their person on the last cast of the die. The loser resigns himself voluntarily to servitude, and even if he is younger and stronger than his adversary, he allows himself to be bound and sold. Thus great is their staunchness in an affair so bad: they themselves call it ‘Keeping their word’.”

 

The most likely originator of dice is the witch doctor. Before developing into gambling implements, dice were magical devices which primitive man used to divine the future. Not only dice, but most other modern gaming implements have been traced back to primeval man’s practice of divination by arrows. (most notably by Stewart Culin, formerly director of the Brooklyn Museum, in his book Chess and Playing Cards, 1897).

 

Primitive dice dealt with the realms of good and bad luck. When the prehistoric priest or witch-doctor threw the sacred arrows (sticks, reeds and straws were also used) upon the ground and recited his magical spells, he read the future and foretold what good or bad fortune would attend the tribe.

 

Marco Polo described a variation of this process with a surprising result…

 

“…when the two great hosts were pitched on the plains of Tanduc… Chinghis Kaan one day summoned before him his astrologers… and desired them to let him know which of the two hosts would gain the battle – his own or Prester John’s… they got a cane and split it length-wise, and laid one-half on this side and one-half on that, allowing no one to touch the pieces.”

 

“And one piece of cane they called Chinghis Kaan and the other piece, Prester John. And then they said, “Now, mark; and you shall see the event of the battle and who shall have the best of it…”

 

“And to! whilst all were beholding the cane that bore the name of Chinghis Kaan, without being touched by anybody, advanced to the other… and got on top of it.”

 

The divinatory throwing of sticks is the casting of the lots of Biblical mention, and many ancient writers refer to the bundles of sacred tamarisk twigs used by the Magi of Chaldea and Babylonia, the divining rods of Assyria and the similar baresma of the Parsis of India.

 

The game of Jackstraws Togel Hongkong can be traced back to this divination by throwing sticks, and the fact that kwai, the name of the jade sceptres carried by the nobles of ancient China, is written with a character which, combined with the radical for “hand”, stands for kwa meaning “to divine with straws”, hints at the divining rod origin of the king’s sceptre. The magician’s wand would also be product of this line of evolution.

 

In other cultures, divining sticks were shorter and thicker and bore a greater resemblance to modern dice. Among the African tribes of Mashonaland, they are common among all the Abantu races and closely bound up with their occult belief in witchcraft. On the evening of the new moon, the village witch-doctor will go around, tossing each man a set of dollasses in the air, and by the way they turn up he will divine the fortune of the individual for the month to come.”

 

The Livingstones who noted similar customs among the Zambesi referred to the diviner as a dice doctor. He also functioned as a detective since another use for his dice was that of discovering thieves ( see authentic African dollasses).

 

Gradually these primitive fortune telling devices began to be used as fortune gaining devices. The mystical significance of the numbers was lost and the throw determined winning scores and decided the out-come of wagers. The liturgical rites became games.

 

As the arrow used in divination began, instead, to be used in gambling, three general types of games evolved: guessing games, games of chance and games of skill. In the guessing games, the arrow shaft became an ornamented gambling stick marked to denote rank which, in Korea, evolved into a deck of slim strips of oiled paper cards whose backs still bore an arrow feather design that indicates their origin.

 

Later Chinese cards of the same shape, called “stick cards”, bear figures whose resemblance to those on our present court cards is remarkable.

 

The world’s oldest known playing card found in Chinese Turkestan is of this type and is dated at the eleventh century. They were introduced into Europe from China in the thirteenth century. “Even the ancestry of the book in Eastern Asia”, Culin says, “may be traced to the bundle of engraved or painted arrow-derived slips used in divination.”

 

In many of the early games such as the Korean Nyout, the Egyptian Tab and the ancient Pachisi (Parcheesi) of India, the throw of the dice controlled the moves of counters upon a marked playing surface as in the Backgammon of today. Later, when the dice and the element of chance was omitted, the game of pure skill developed and the counters became the men of Checkers, Chess, the Chinese Wei-Kei and the Japanese Go.

 

But before any of these developments, the dice were tossed alone in games that were pure gambling. If we can judge by the American Indian, primitive man and woman (she was often even more addicted to the practice than he) was an inveterate gambler.

 

The close association of gambling and the military man is also noted even that early. Edwin T. Denig in a report on the Indian tribes of the Upper Missouri said that…

 

“Most of the leisure time, either by night or by day, among all these nations is devoted to gambling… every day and night in the soldier’s lodge not occupied by business matters presents gambling in various ways all the time; also in many private lodges the song of hand gambling and the rattle of the bowl dice are heard. Women are as much addicted to the practice as men, though not being in possession of much property their losses are not so distressing.”

 

The most common method of play among the Indians was to toss the gaming disks of fruit stone, animal bone, wood or shell in a basket. The basket was raised a little, the stones tossed, and the basket brought smartly down to the ground. The combinations of sides which lie uppermost after the throw determined the count.

 

In the Cheyenne basket game five plum stones were used marked on one side only, three with crosses and the other two with a symbol representing the foot of a bear.

 

Two blanks, two bears and one cross counted nothing; one blank, two bears, and two crosses counted one point, etc.

 

The thrower who tossed two bears and three crosses won the game and the jackpot.

 

The dice shark’s sleight of hand is no recent invention, either. In a game played with dice of beaver teeth by the Twana tribe of Washington, one die with a string around its middle counted as high score when this die was up and the others down. “They sometimes learn very expertly to throw the one with the string differently from the others, by arranging them in the hand so they can hold this one, which they know by feeling, a trifle longer than the others.”
