Cryptocurrencies have attracted the interest of investors worldwide. Unfortunately, however, much of this interest seems more speculative (buying cryptocurrency to make a profit) than related to replacing traditional payment methods or national currencies with cryptocurrency markets proving highly volatile.

Although public policy in NSW may seem more generous than other states’, its generous nature invites criminals while prioritising industry profits ahead of people’s wellbeing. Analysis by Wesley Mission has found that in NSW’s nearly 86,640 poker machines alone, each machine generated on average an estimated profit of $44,265, according to an initial six month analysis by this charity. That amount equates to the annual salary of radiographer or public relations manager and more than twice what nurses make per hour of service. Most…

Making big on slot machines can be challenging. However, there are essential strategies available that can help you beat the odds. By maximising winnings while minimising losses and avoiding costly errors that many gamblers make when it comes to their play on slots machines.

No matter your opinion of gas station slot machines, they’re gambling machines – designed to rob people out of money. But one man was accused of devising ways to trick the machines into giving him free spins – police say he altered $100 bills so the slot machine thought he had retained it, giving him multiple free games from one bill! Though it may be tempting to think you can beat gas station slot machines by reading Michael Bluejay’s Easy Vegas site or SlotsGuy’s guide, such methods don’t actually work.
