When a player decides to stop on his own, he scores whatever points he got before stopping. If a person gets 3 and 3, his score is not 6, but 12. All numbers thrown before 7 are added up and this is the person’s score. Ten
This game is known by different names in different countries, like – dicey, spot, zarf and roll-ten. E.g. 3 dice are required to play this game. Try keeping the fun as clean as possible.
. It is played with a single dice. A variant of this version could be setting a target score in advance, and the first person to reach it would be the winner.
You can easily improvise and even come up with newer versions on your own. They can, at times, get addictive, especially the ones involving money and betting, which should be avoided. Again, all dice showing his target number on top are kept aside. But playing them as adults can seem a little kiddish or amateurish to certain people. It can be any number from 1 to 6. The objective is to score exactly 21 by rolling as many times a player wishes and adding all corresponding scores. When one scores above 21, he is ‘busted’ and barred from the game. People also come up with variations of this game by setting the target higher to 36 or using 2 dice.
A player’s luck is tested in this game, and is played with 2 dice. They are fun, interesting, and can evoke similar joyous emotions which people experience in childhood. Apart from enjoying with friends, they can be enjoyed with the entire family. One of the players throws all 3 dice at once. The dice which show the target number are kept aside. The others place bets on the result of their throw. A player continues to roll the dice till he gets a combined score of 7 on both dice. Since odds for the banker losing are higher, most players are reluctant to be bankers.
This game also requires a score-sheet and is played with a single dice. In case he stops at 1, it is not added to his score. Every player in turn rolls the dice, and keeps on throwing till he decides to stop or gets a 1. In case the total comes to be greater than 10, the banker is the loser and has to pay the others their betting amount. Every player gets a chance to be the bank. It is believed that this ancient gambling game from Rome was played by centurions responsible for Jesus’ garments during his crucifixion. Keep a score-sheet as well to note down scores. If the outcome of the throw, after adding, is less than 10, then all players lose the bet. Once a player has achieved his target number on all, he chooses another number and the game continues. When turns begin, the first player starts by rolling all his dice together. You can decide a target number before the start of play. The second player continues by rolling his 5 dice. In case nobody reaches the figure, the score closest to 21 is declared the winner. The game continues until all 5 dice show the target number and are kept aside. That is not the case. Most of them can be played with as many players as possible to multiply the fun aspect, and the rules are extremely easy to understand and follow.
This will require every player to have five dice each. If on a throw a person gets the same digit on both dice, the total is doubled while noting scores. The player who scores maximum points is the winner. A dice, or for few games, a score-sheet are the only things needed. The best part is that there is minimal inventory required. The first player to cross 100 is the winner.
As children, everyone must have played and enjoyed dice games. Each player gets a chance to roll the dice. The winner is the first player who has set and achieved targets of all numbers from 1 to 6.
This game is the equivalent of the famous card gambling game – blackjack

Earlier on the day, a beaming William, 32, met well-wishers at a bookstore bestrewn with Union Jacks in west Tokyo, where he launched an exhibition showcasing British industry.
“It really suits you,” came the reply.
He is due to leave Japan on Sunday, bound for Beijing.
That familiarity stands in marked contrast to Japan’s own imperial family, who are seen as austere and far removed from their people, and whose own carefully choreographed interactions with crowds frequently look awkward.
William, whose own military career saw him taking the controls of an ultra-modern helicopter, asked: “How does it look?”
The prince, accompanied by Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, was greeted by flag-waving small children and invited into the facility.
William later toured the newsroom at NHK, one of the world’s biggest broadcasters, which has bureaus around the globe, and was told how the corporation had covered the earthquake, tsunami and nuclear disaster that struck Japan in 2011.
The dressing up session took place at the main studios of Japan’s national broadcaster NHK, on the set of one of its popular long-running period dramas.
The second-in-line to the British throne asked for a sword to complete the outfit, and grinned at photographers as he posed for pictures dressed as a warrior from yesteryear.
Motomiya is far enough from the crippled plant and was not designated as an evacuation zone following the nuclear accident, but the city has created the indoor facility for local children who have been encouraged not to play outside due to radiation fears.
The British prince was presented with a huge bunch of flowers by popular actress Mao Inoue, who looked stunning in a simple kimono.
The visit to the set was a reminder of the pageantry and tradition in Japan, which at times outstrips that of even Britain’s convention-bound royal family.

Earlier, he had been treated to a geisha show in which the ornately-attired women performed dances with fans and then sang traditional songs as they played “shamisen”, a three-stringed instrument sometimes described as a Japanese banjo.
Japan’s media has closely followed the royal visit, with many outlets using it as an opportunity to re-broadcast footage of William’s mother, the late Diana, during her trips to Tokyo.
The Princess of Wales was wildly popular in Japan, with her visits setting off so-called “Diana Fever” as tens of thousands flocked to meet her and as women sought to copy her carefully-coiffured hair and stylish dress sense.
William was to stay at a traditional “ryokan” inn in Fukushima, where Abe is expected to host a dinner.
On Friday, the second day of a four-day tour of Japan, William had met with the ageing Emperor Akihito and Empress Michiko, where his youth and vigour stood in marked contrast to the increasingly frail-looking couple.
On Sunday he will meet people, whose lives were affected by the 2011 earthquake and tsunami, including the staff of a newspaper who produced handwritten copies in the aftermath of the disaster because their printing presses had been destroyed.
The disaster claimed around 19,000 lives and left tens of thousands of people homeless.
Many of those displaced are still unable to return home, in some cases because of radiation that leaked from the crippled Fukushima nuclear plant, with scientists warning some areas may have to be abandoned.

And, of course, bet enough money and a small profit becomes a big one. Well, yes, it is legal, although some bookmakers will not take your bet if they suspect arbitrage betting. Any type of sporting event that has a gambling factor to it, there is always some kind of interesting and unusual bet that can be made.
One of the more daring wagers that a bettor can do is called arbitrage betting. Of course, with this type of wager, one needs to be seriously adventurous. It can be a complicated formula, but if you are interested in arbitrage betting, we encourage you to read up on the subject. Nowadays, there are an unlimited number of computer simulations and formulas designed to rank and rate teams in just about every sport you can think of and with a little thought, it’s easy to see how you can utilize them when making sports picks. Sports betting have always been part art, part science. And that’s where your friendly independent bookmaker comes in. The ones that will tend to go against the grain and give odds on what they personally think, and not the established odds. It is these types of free-thinking bookmakers that allow for heavy arbitrage betting taking place. Now, we’re not going to go into the math here, as it can be long and somewhat complicated, but trust us when we tell you that arbitrage betting situations can and do exist all the time. And if that happens, depending on the difference and the bets offered, one could feasibly bet both sides of an event with competing bookmakers, and guarantee a small profit no matter who wins. Combine all of those, and you might just come out on top. But in the modern world of sports betting, we have even more tools at our disposal than ever, and not taking advantage of them means you’re not doing everything you can do to win. Successful sports betting takes a feel for the game you’re betting on, a lot of knowledge about injuries and trends, and an understanding of the odds. Therefore, what is arbitrage betting, exactly? This type of betting means that when it comes to a sporting match, the gambler places a wager on several aspects of the match, with different bookmakers. Win, lose, low point spread, high point spread, you name it. While this sounds like an insane waste of money, the idea behind it is that, regardless of what is being bet, the bettor is still going to get a profit no matter who wins the game. This is also referred to as a sure win bet.
The basic premise is the odds between two bookmakers may differ. The big key to arbitrage betting is to find differing odds amongst different bookmakers. However, it’s not something that is heavily guarded against, as in general terms, each bookmaker still feels they win in an overall sense – after all, you are just playing their odds you win on the differing numbers between bookies. It usually takes a hefty cash layout to participate, but, if you feel it’s a sure thing, well, why not? If you are sporting enthusiasts, and you would like to put a little wager on some event or think that you can predict successfully, then you can earn some bucks by using the arbitrage betting systems.

The U.S. That is seen as a way around a 1990s federal law that restricts state-sponsored sports gambling to Nevada and three other states. Chris Christie last Friday.
New Jersey’s latest effort is “in clear and flagrant violation of federal law,” the brief states, adding that the law Christie signed “is nothing more than a de facto authorization of sports gambling.”
This summer, Christie vetoed an altered version of the sports wagering bill that would have removed sports betting from state control, but in early September he issued a directive for Hoffman not to prosecute casinos and racetracks that offered sports betting.
Monmouth Park, a horse track, is the only location that has said it’s ready to accept wagers and has outfitted an area for a sports book operation. On its website, Monmouth Park announced it would “begin offering and accepting wagers on sporting contests and athletic events on Sunday, Oct. 26.”
In that appellate opinion last November, the judges wrote that “we do not read PASPA to prohibit New Jersey from repealing its ban on sports wagering.”
The bill Christie signed effectively repealed the state’s laws against sports gambling. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten, or redistributed.
The leagues filed a motion in federal court in Trenton, N.J., seeking an injunction that would stop the state from allowing casinos and racetracks to offer sports betting under legislation signed into law by Republican Gov. A spokeswoman for the Meadowlands Racetrack said Monday the track had no plans to implement sports wagering and was taking a wait-and-see approach.
A spokesman for Christie didn’t comment after the filing was made Monday, citing the pending litigation. But acting state Attorney General John Hoffman withdrew the state’s request for the hearing after Christie signed the law.
NEWARK, N.J. Supreme Court declined to hear New Jersey’s appeal.
The National Football League, the National Basketball Association, the National Hockey League, Major League Baseball and the NCAA, in their filing, say New Jersey’s new law violates the 1992 Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act (PASPA) by offering what amounts to state-sponsored sports gambling by restricting it to casinos and racetracks that are already heavily regulated by the state.
New Jersey voters overwhelmingly approved a nonbinding referendum on sports gambling in 2011, and Christie signed sports wagering legislation in early 2012. All Rights Reserved. Earlier in the day at a campaign event before the filing was released, Christie said, “We’re moving forward. Of the three, only Delaware offers parlay betting in which bettors must correctly pick several games to win money.
None of Atlantic City’s casinos has released a plan to offer sports betting.
50/50 contests are those which have 50/50 odds. The key to long term success in daily fantasy sports is focusing on 50/50 odds entries. In simpler terms, for each lineup I come up with I’ll bet $20 on 50/50 odds and $5 in a low odds tournament. They might even get lucky and actually place in one of those tournaments once in a while. Generally that means a 4 or 5 to one ratio of 50/50 to Tournaments. Still over time entering low odds tournaments is a road to an empty bankroll. That way assuming I picked an above average team the $20 will return $40. Realistically even someone that has very little fantasy football knowledge could simply construct lineups using their advice column. This will keep your bankroll stable and allow you to have all the fun of “lotto ticket” tournament play while minimizing the need to add cash to your account.
One of the best sites for Daily Fantasy Advice, particularly dealing with Fantasy Football is Fantasyfootballadvisor.net . That can either be going head to head against another randomly selected player or in a tournament with 50/50 odds where the top half of participants win. Much like buying lotto tickets the excitement of the possibility of winning tens of thousands of dollars in a single lineup entry is hard to resist. In Daily Fantasy Sports (or DFS) players put together a team and compete head to head or in large scale tournaments against other players online. Typically these can be anything from 100 to 10,000 participants with prizes ranging from a few hundred dollars to a million or more.
Most new players are attracted to the large scale high prize tournaments. If I happen to place in or win a tournament it could mean thousands or more.
The key to long term success in Daily Fantasy is finding the right balance of entries in the various contest types in any given week. The other type are large scale tournaments with big prizes for the winners. If I lose the tournament I’m still left with $35. In those we simply need to be slightly above average to win consistently.
Do Your Research
Don’t Fall in the Trap
Since both types of contests are fun to play and I do love the excitement of large scale tournaments my system involves playing both types but spreading the bets around so that in essence the 50/50 entries pay for the tournament entries. The odds of winning depends on what type of contests players choose to participate in.. Remember that the rule of thumb is for each lineup 80-20% ratio of $ ‘s entered in 50/50 odds vs tournaments.
I’ve been an avid player for the past 4 years and have grown my bankroll and even pulled out funds (after tournament wins) on occasion. 50/50 and Large Scale Tournaments. That’s great if you don’t mind adding money to your account all the time. The key is a disciplined betting strategy combined with research and a high level of knowledge in the sport you choose to play.
There are two main types of contests players can participate in. There are a few similar sites out there so do your research!
What is Daily Fantasy Sports?
Different Tournament Types:
Daily Fantasy Sports is a new take on Fantasy that has been on the rise ever since the courts ruled Fantasy Sports betting to be a game of skill rather then “Gambling”. All of the participants choose from the same player pool. Let’s face it we all think we are great at whatever fantasy sport we like to play but the idea that it is possible to win tournaments that pay out the top 10% of scorers is about as likely as the odds of beating the stock market consistently.
