as I know in my country there is a credit card that says MarterCard or Visa.  while on this card, I can't find it written on the ELITIUM card.
I believe they planned to do a partnership with VISA as stated on WP:
Quote
3.3.2 Core Features
The Elitium Card is unique in the sector as it offers a variety of value-driven,
customer-centric services, including:
* Use anywhere that accepts VISA (46m+ merchants)
* Compatible with mobile payments (Apple Pay, Google Pay, Samsung Pay)
Source.

Basically, this kind of project has to choose one of the payment processor VISA, MasterCard, UnionPay, etc. since building their proprietary payment network is an impossible task for a startup CMIIW.

Yeah, but can you tell, being an expert in this field (and I'm not joking here, you have proved yourself to be better than others, by a wide margin, in slots guessing), would you personally play on those machines? Sometimes nothing is better than anything. Do you agree?
Mate, you should mention the "self-proclaimed" words Grin
Way before the internet and stuff, I did play for fun, wasted my pocket money on arcades, shady slots, local counter strike (PvP) betting, etc., but never in my mind I'll get profit from these activities. However, we should note several important things:
- Nowadays, it's easy to access the internet and play at more reputable operators;
- The majority of people don't have the "for fun" attitude;
- Probably (especially in my country), the cops are more aggressive to eradicate this insignificant "crime" compared to the 90s era.

So, I think the stay-away attitude is more beneficial. To answer "nothing is better than anything," well it depends Smiley

"soft-scammed", maybe the same as HE where each platform sometimes has a different value :v
What I meant by soft-scam is the one who uses unacceptable RTP, like below 94% for PnG slots. Suppose you want to buy a bottle of mineral water, soft-scam is like when you tried to buy it at the hotel since it can cost more than 10x. But if you buy it at some random store with a 2x price, then it's acceptable when you desperately need it.

I know some popular casinos use ~ -2% RTPs, but it can be acceptable if they give rakebacks, raffles, etc. In other words, the 2% (and perhaps more) will be materialized into other forms of benefits. Nevertheless, it needs users to commit to play there long term which I don't like. Sometimes, switching casinos can give you better luck lol.

From 10 Spin 7 Wild & 5 Spin 10 Wild to 15 Spin 4 Wild & 5 Spin 7 Wild, the change makes me really hard connecting each symbol ~LOL.
It was unchanged like @roycilik said, perhaps you were thinking about Golden Beauty.

Bronco:


Golden Beauty:




my main plan is to try several Megaways slots game from Blueprint and iSoftbet.
Yesterday I tried these slots:
- Legacy of Ra Megaways
- Aztec Gold Megaways

By the way, iSoftBet sucks! I haven't won anything on that provider.

Lol unlike the title, it's so difficult to get the wild symbol.
What's more challenging? Use image that only appears in the feature/free spins lmao Grin

Congrats to the winners!
10  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Re: Blockchain and Bitcoin adoption globally. What is the cause of the slow pace. on: September 25, 2020, 01:35:29 PM
Just like any goods, it goes back to supply and demand analysis:
- limited supply -> price high -> some people don't want to buy or cannot afford to buy Bitcoin/crypto with the current rate;
- the slowdown in the economy -> less buying power -> some people don't want to buy or cannot afford to buy Bitcoin/crypto with the current rate;
- some people don't need Bitcoin/crypto, what is the reason to buy (RTB)? We need more use case other than for gambling purposes since not all people is a gambler.

12  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: Anyone know a dice game that is actually fair? on: September 25, 2020, 09:47:21 AM
I think the problem with all the accusations is about the wrong understanding of provably fair. Let's say there is no HE so that the odds would be 50:50. People like to think that after ten bets, the result would be five highs and five lows. That's not the case. People should think that every bet is an independent event.

Provably fair guaranteed after users change the seeds, the outcome of the next bet would be unknown (even to the casino operator if users use their own client seed). It doesn't matter if the result would be ten consecutive highs or lows.
13  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: Why do people keep playing unlicensed, illegal slot machines? on: September 25, 2020, 09:29:25 AM
Or people think it is more expensive to play slots on a casinos than a slots on some regular shops.
But that's not true right? We can play as low as 0.1$ per bet in a game with more reputation, or we can play even lower than 0.1$ in provably fair slots.

Apart from convenience, I think it has something to do with the level of education of people in those regions. Put these machines in Silicon Valley, and you will hardly earn anything, let alone $23k in one day.
Yea but perhaps they already have access to legit casinos, so there's no need to play these shady machines. I mean human is still human no matter what IQ or education level, slot is always appealing. But once the availability is not there, these machines would appear like a mold.

As a makeshift to Harry Kane you mean Grin
Mourinho would say "Important backup" who brings different options to the team, lul.
He would say, "I need people who comfortable playing with his back facing the goal," meaning as a target man. Son, Moura, Bale, etc., aren't a target man.

*just my imagination Grin
15  Economy / Economics / Re: Why criminals prefer cash (Fiat) on top of crypto? on: September 25, 2020, 04:43:29 AM
If by any means criminals start adopting crypto in mass (especially privacy coins), we could expect a full government crackdown on the entire industry. Which is why I think it's best for criminals to continue using Fiat for the sake of the crypto/Blockchain industry's growth worldwide. But we'll never know what will happen in the future. Thoughts? Huh
As long as Bitcoin is neutral, like it doesn't have anonymizer built into the protocol, the government doesn't have the reason to crackdown the network. Suppose this is the case for Monero et al., then yes. It was proven by the delisting of privacy coins in some regulated exchanges.

I'm not saying enhancing privacy = supporting criminals according to my belief, but that's the government's view about it. Criminals can use whatever MoE they want, but it is important not to encourage/promote such activities by tweaking the protocol to support them if we don't want any trouble with governments.

For the guy who wins a lot, it could be that he knows something we don't or something that they know how to rig back as well. Imagine playing in an illegal place and you still manage to win money with just that. Either you are a lucky SOB or you are part of it and making it look that it's profitable. These types of events would be the invitation to people who are greedy and want to win on their own as well.
Dude, the guy who makes millions of dollars, is the maker of those machines.



"Bar Bar"
video karera
Thanks guys, for the valuable information Grin



From the feedbacks here, I realize people just want to play, and since poor people don't have access to casinos and stuff, they play this machine, even though mostly rekt. Hopefully, these guys can use their mobile phone and play on legit online casinos. It's better than playing those stupid machines.
17  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: Why do people keep playing unlicensed, illegal slot machines? on: September 24, 2020, 01:28:23 PM
Illegal casinos are available in almost every countries.
Yea, but this is not even a casino. It's like sporadically putting "pre-reveal" machine in the convenience store or gas station.

The only reason I can think of is that they can't really control themselves not to gamble in this kind of machines. So it boils down to human psychology 101, and the operators very much know this, so it's a win-win situation.
Win-win if the outcome is fair mate, if it's rigged than it's more like a robbery.

Anyways, if you guys haven't see this "pre-reveal" game in action, this is a nice video:

Lmao a rekt machine!

I stumbled upon this thread and found something interesting about tokenizing New York City hotel using Elitium Capital, this concept precisely what I like.

Imagine you create a company as DAO and issue shares over DeFi, do the voting as a shareholder, earn profits in stablecoins, can trade stocks freely without 3rd party market maker.

The question is, how about regulations in the US, compliance with SEC and stuff. How far is the process of acquiring the required licenses from getting approved? Is this only a profit-sharing scheme or also delegates voting/control or proxy voting?

Tottenham's transfers so far:

Quote
Sergio Reguilón, £27.00m
Matt Doherty, £15.12m
Pierre-Emile Höjbjerg, £14.94m
Joe Hart, Free transfer
Gareth Bale, Loan
Source.

Mourinho signed one goalkeeper, two defenders, one midfielder, and one winger. I think they need one pure CF as a target man. Is it going to be Arkadiusz Milik?

across town, another type of gambling continued much as it had since the coronavirus shutdown. A customer sat at the back of a gas station and peered into the video terminal of an electronic gaming device, one that's often referred to as a "prereveal" or "no chance" game. These look and sound like a regular slot machine, but they manage to skirt the gray area of what kind of gambling is authorized in Missouri.

...

Cobb, owner and president of ACME Music & Vending in St. Joseph, said it's common for his employees to report seeing these electronic devices when stopping in some gas stations to get snacks. There are an estimated 14,000 of the devices statewide, tucked into convenience stores, truck stops and fraternal organizations.

Also, "Utah man makes $8 million a year in cash from illegal gambling machines"

This machine is dangerous since the result would likely be rigged, no RTP information, no certification, no provably fair, etc. But the business keeps booming. Is this because of a mere convenience? Or something else? Nowadays, people can play from their mobile phones, online, on legit casinos.
