Slots is most common game found at any casinos whether big or small. It is one of the easiest games and players simply gather around it to play or just to watch and have fun. Slots is actually a machine and to play, the player needs to insert coins into the machine and push a button. When you push the button it sets the drums inside it in motion. The alignment of the drums when they stop rolling decides the whether the player has lost or won the bet. The machine basically consists of a tray where the money drops into, a display screen where you can see the images and a button or a lever, which needs to be pushed or pulled to roll the game. Earlier machines had levers which need to be pulled down to set the wheels rolling, hence they were also referred to as one armed bandits. They were also given this name as they would rip most of the players of their money.
Wherever there are casinos and gambling, slots are undoubtedly the most sought after game. Infact, it is said that 70 percent of the total revenue generated by the casinos is contributed by Slots. The reason for this game to reach such popularity is because it is very simple and doesn’t require any specialized skills. All you need to play this game is your luck. If your luck is in your favour then nothing can stop you from winning.
A microcomputer is the heart of every slot machine. This microcomputer runs the internal activity in every slot machine. This microcomputer spawns numbers at very high speed. Every number/image that is displayed on the screen is selected randomly and is not related to number displayed before it or the number that will be displayed after it. The finally combination of these numbers or images decides whether the player has won or lost.

Poker’s Tournament Director’s Association just wrapped up their annual summit in Las Vegas. As they usually do, a couple of rules were changed. And there is a disturbance in the force.
The Poker TDA is comprised of poker room personnel from around the world whose objective is to draft a standardized set of rules for poker tournaments. The current board of director’s consists of Matt Savage, Jack Effell, “The First Lady of Poker” Linda Johnson, Borgata’s Tab Duchateau, Dave Lamb, Mike Bishop and new member Neil Johnson Head of Live Poker Operations for PokerStars Europe.
PokerStars pro and current Player of the Year (POY) point leader Daniel Negreanu has always been a very vocal advocate for tournament players and has questioned many of the TDA’s decisions.
This year the TDA changed two rules.
They adopted one rule that ONLY a player that calls And retains their cards at the showdown can see other hands. The TDA says this rule will be used at the WSOP next year.
The rule that is causing all the controversy is called “the first card off” rule. Previously the rule was that a player’s hand was declared dead if she was not in her seat when the last card comes off the deck. The new rule is that the hand is dead if the player is not seated when the first card comes off the deck.
Negreau’s complaint is that the rule is totally unnecessary and does not address player’s concerns. He states that the rule was used in some EU tournaments this year and that the players “Hated” it. Other pros joined in saying that the first card rule will is harder to enforce and will result in inconsistent actions during tournaments.
Daniel thinks the TDA should add players to the group at least as advisors. He also acknowledges that the TDA has created some guidelines that are useful for those that play on the professional circuit.
Daniel’s comments created a flurry of support on Twitter and other social media. He even offered his three rules that he would like to see the TDA enact:
1. If it ain’t broke don’t fix it.
2. Only make rule changes based on PLAYER feedback and concerns.
3. Before implementing rule changes, poll the players.
If you are a professional player or only play a few poker events a year, the odds are you will find yourself in a room that uses the TDA’s rules, or at least part of them. Players have often been penalized at key points in tournaments or even disqualified for breaking rules they didn’t even know existed.
You’ve spent a lot of hours learning the game. Spend a few minutes looking at the rules for the tournaments you play.
