No Cruise for You

Didn't win a cruise in the World Slots Championship semifinal last night. Didn't even really come close. I had the lead briefly with about 5 minutes left in the final round but some yahoo hit a ginormous jackpot and put it away. Such is life.

This week is going to be a rough one. I have all of next week off, so I'm just trying to make it through this one with a minimum of hassle and/or stress. It doesn't help matters that we're completely reshuffling and reorganizing job descriptions and general duties the day job, with all sorts of hoopla and running around and what-not. Don't mind me, quietly sitting here, twiddling my thumbs.

Can't think of much interesting to relate, poker-wise. If you don't mind playing on Cryptos, InterPoker is running some pretty decent promotions for the next 12 days, including deposit match bonuses and other assorted fun. I also didn't realize until last week that US players can sign up for TotalBet and UKBetting (which also use Crypto software). They both offer decent recurring monthly bonuses (25£ total) or 5£ per hour that you sit and play at a table. It's obviously not a huge bonus but I almost prefer it to the PokerPlex and Caribbean Sun ones that require a certain number of deal hands, as at least with the hourly ones I don't get pissed at how freaking slow the Crypto software is and how long it takes to get in x number of raked hands. WillHill also offers the same monthly bonus for table hours and, unlike TotalBet and UKBetting, doesn't require a PIN number to be snail-mailed to you to cashout.

Updated the Beginner's Guide to Casino Bonuses this morning and added a detailed explanation on recommended minimum bet size. I'm still working on a bankroll management tip sheet, as well as a few other expansions.

Plex and Carib Sun are just dealt hands, not raked. Still sucks when it's slow.
