Three ways to win money in a casino

The slot machines in the online mode allow you not only to have a fun time without leaving your house, but also to improve your financial well-being if you play for money. Every player dreams of winning money, who decided to take a chance and try his luck. The main question remains how to play for money at the casino and get a gold profit?

The first way
The first way to become rich when playing casino is to develop the right strategy. The bottom line is that: The game of machine guns should bring pleasure. Luck is unlikely to smile at someone who is dissatisfied with any factors: the interface of the game slot, its rules. You should keep your statistics and watch it. For example, the statistics of winnings are kept on the site of the casino. The higher the score, the greater the chance of a favorable outcome. If during the game process for three scrolls of the reel the winning position is not displayed, you should switch to another gaming machine. In the same way it is recommended to enter if luck on the slot machine smiled three times in a row.

The second way
The second way is training. Most players who can boast of large jackpots started playing casinos for fun. Recommended: The first time to learn gambling machines without financial investments, playing in the demo version. Do not put a large amount of money on just one machine. It is better to divide the money for 2-3 machine guns, so the chance to win increases at least 2 times. You should not train every day. Gambling machines are not a job that brings a steady and stable income. Casino, first of all, bring pleasure and additional earnings. It is important to be careful and not to drive horses. Sometimes it is better to spend more time training and get the coveted amount than to lower your “blood”.

The third way
The third way to win money is to learn how to cope with your emotions. The human factor can both have a beneficial effect on the game, and lead to a loss. For example: It is not recommended to start the game in a state of depression, aggression and alcoholic intoxication. Negative emotions do not accompany luck. Anger and an uncontrolled mind due to the effects of alcohol are frustrating. It should be understood that constant luck or a large jackpot is better to take than doubling with them the stakes at the next game. It is important to be able to stop at times, it is better to play “tomorrow” than to lose “today”. Moreover, to lose not only the jackpot, but also it’s originally invested money. It is necessary to choose your casinos to save your finances. You can find an article how to do it here: You can read reviews, communicate with real players, trust professionals, but only rely on yourself. Only you yourself can, how to win your own money, and lose. No one will return them if you are not careful.

On This Date: May 29, 2003 The Closed Moulin Rouge Caught Fire

May 29, 2017

Moulin Rouge Neon Sign in West Las Vegas

The Moulin Rouge opened on May 24, 1955, built at a cost of $3.5 million. It was the first integrated hotel casino in the United States. Until that time almost all of the casinos on the Strip were totally segregated—off limits to blacks unless they were the entertainment or labor force.

The hotel was located in West Las Vegas, where the black population was forced to live. West Las Vegas was bounded by Washington Avenue on the north, Bonanza Road on the south, H Street on the west, and A Street on the east. The establishment was a model of eye-catching, 110 rooms, a gorgeous showroom, swimming pool, restaurant/coffee shop, dress-shop, and bar which was constructed of highly polished and expensive hardwoods. When it opened, the Moulin Rouge was fully integrated top to bottom, from employees to patrons to entertainers.

The hotel made the June 20, 1955, cover of Life magazine, with a photo of two showgirls. A veritable “A” list of performers regularly showed to party until dawn. Great black singers and musicians such as Lena Horne, Sammy Davis Jr., Louis Armstrong, Sarah Vaughan, Nat King Cole, Duke Ellington, Dorothy Dandridge, Harry Belafonte, Pearl Bailey, and Count Basie would perform often. These artists were banned from gambling or staying at the hotels on the Strip.[1] In addition, white performers, including George Burns, Jeanette MacDonald, Tallulah Bankhead, Judy Garland, Marlene Dietrich, Frankie Laine, Maurice Chevalier, Zsa Zsa Gabor, Jack Benny, Sophie Tucker and Frank Sinatra, would drop in after their shows to gamble and perform. Eventually management added a 2:30am “Third Show” to accommodate the crowds.

In November 1955 the Moulin Rouge closed its doors, and by December 1955, the casino had declared bankruptcy. Nevertheless, to maintain its gaming license, the Moulin Rouge (like many closed properties) operates on a temporary basis for a state-mandated minimum of eight hours every two years, most recently on June 19, 2012.

On May 29, 2003, a fire ripped through the buildings, almost entirely gutting the complex.

After 2003 fire, what was left of abandoned hotel, burned down on May 6, 2009.
