Most of the bonuses that online casinos offer are sticky(non-withdrawable). This doesn't mean that the bonuses can't be used to your advantage though. A lot of money can be made from sticky bonuses. I will explain how here.

Most casinos with sticky bonuses also have a much smaller wagering requirement than those with withdrawable bonuses so it is possible to get them done faster.

If you sign up to a casino that has a sticky bonus 100% First Deposit up to $100 then you will have $200 to play with, but when you come to withdraw $100 will be taken away from your balance as soon as you try and make a withdrawal.

The way to get around this problem is to bet your whole balance on your first blackjack hand. Using the example given above. If you lose, you have only lost $100, but if you win, you will have $400. Of the $400, $100 was the sticky bonus money that you can't withdraw, but that still leaves you with $300 of which $200 is all profit. Now you use the $400 in the account to complete the wagering requirement just as you would normally.

Sticky bonuses actually should bring you much more profit than you can get from cashable bonuses because there are many more of them available and lots of casinos offer these bonuses every single month, not just on your first deposit.

If you bet your whole balance on your first hand, more or less a 50/50 chance of either winning $200 or losing $100. So you see for a more or less 50/50 shot, you will either win $200 or lose $100.

$200 win - $100 loss = $100 profit for two plays = $50 average profit per casino.

You can build this up to an average profit of $75 per casino and also eat away a lot of your wagering requirement by betting your whole balance once more on your second hand, If you bet all $400 on your next blackjack hand and win, you win $400. If you bet it all and lose, you lose $300 (your $100 deposit plus $200 prior win minus the $100 sticky bonus). As with the first all in bet, you are likely to win the second bet half of the time and lose it half of the time. This brings your odds of winning both bets up to 1 in 4. Every 1 in 4 hands you will win both bets and have a balance of $800 to play with. Take the $100 sticky bonus and your initial $100 deposit away and you now have a profit of $600.

$600 win - $300 loss = $300 profit for 4 plays = $75 average profit per casino.

After you have done this then carry on playing optimal blackjack strategy for the rest of the wagering requirement as described in the Blackjack Guide here

I don't recommend starting any casinos with sticky bonuses until your bankroll is at least $2,000 and don't start trying to double up twice until your bankroll is at least $4,000
 
 
First player to reach 250 points wins the league!

LEAGUE PRIZE MONEY FOR FINAL POSITIONS

1st Place - $150
2nd Place - $80
3rd Place - $50
4th Place - $20

LEAGUE RULES

i) The poker league takes a unique approach to scoring which we believe is much better suited to the nature of the internet than traditional league formats.

ii) It takes into account the fact that sometimes people won't be available to play and that new players may want to join, old players may want to leave and some people might want to have a couple of weeks off. It keeps everyone on their toes.

iii) In any given game, those who finish in the top half are awarded positive points and those who finish in the bottom half are given negative points - the amount of points in play depends on how many people are in the tournament.

iv) This way a new player has a good chance of getting a foot in the door without having to climb past everyone who is already invovled. This makes the games extremely competetive as you know that if you go out early you will lose points. It shows who are the best players because they are the ones who consistently finish high up and accumulate a high score.

v)At the end of the game if you have a score less than zero it is reset to zero the following week, no one has a negative score and only players with a positive score are featured on the league index.

vi) To make an example, in a twenty player tournament points would be awarded as follows;

1st 10 points
2nd 9 points
3rd 8 points
4th 7 points
5th 6 points
6th 5 points
7th 4 points
8th 3 points
9th 2 points
10th 1 point
11th -1 point
12th -2 points
13th -3 points
14th -4 points
15th -5 points
16th -6 points
17th -7 points
18th -8 points
19th -9 points
20th -10 points

vii) So the more players are in a tournament, the more points will be at stake.

viii) Additionally whoever finishes first in a game gets a ten point bonus. This really helps competition at the top between the very best players, rewarding a tournament win.

ix) The tournament currently takes place at Full Tilt Poker 15.00 UK Time on Sundays starting on the 23rd of May... In order to participate you have to be a member of the forum and have made an introduction thread and least three other posts in the forum - it's free to join.

x)Players in the league games are eligible for the fortnightly $30 freeroll which will occur if the last league game had 10 players or more. The passwords will be posted in the forum and sent out via email several hours before the start of the tournaments.

xii) If you are tied for position in the league whoever won the most points in the last game takes priority.
 
 
I am pleased to announce that we will soon have a poker league with a $150 prize for the winner.

No Limit Texas Holdem Poker is the game that will be played.

The poker league will begin on Sunday May the 23rd.

The games will be hosted on Full Tilt Poker. New sign-ups to Full Tilt Poker will receive a 100% matching bonus up to $600 on your initial deposit.

In order to participate you have to be a member of the forum and have made an introduction thread and least three other posts - it's free to join.

The league matches will be played every Sunday at 3pm UK Time at Full Tilt Poker The entry fee will be $5.50 and will have a standard prize structure.

There will be fortnightly MSG World freerolls with $30 added on Full Tilt Poker if there were over 10 players in the previous league game.

The rules of the league are in a separate thread and details on how to win the league are also there too.
 
 
Here is a handy list of the online casinos that allow blackjack to be used to complete the wagering requirement. All of the bonuses at the following casinos are withdrawable once the wagering requirements have been met.

Next week I will compile a list of all of the casinos that have non withdrawable bonuses but that can also be used to make good profit from by playing perfect blackjack and using the bonuses to your advantage.

Under the casino name is the maximum bonus, the deposit needed to achieve this bonus and the amount needed to complete the wagering requirement using blackjack (Not including Blackjack Switch or Blackjack Surrender).

The casinos are ordered with the ones with the lowest wagering requirement first.
I would recommend following the blackjack guide here.

Using optimum blackjack strategy I would suggest that you work your way down this list of casinos and you should make a lot of profit.

Matched betting is using the free bet bonus that bookmakers offer and betting on all possible outcomes of an event to guarantee a profit.

By betting an event at a bookmaker and laying (betting against) the same event at a betting exchange it is possible to use the free bets offered to guarantee a profit. The only risk is human error.

Matched betting will guarantee you profits. Football matches are the easiest events to use. There is a spreadsheet attached to this link that will help you a lot with matched betting.


Here are the basic steps for matched betting.

  • Sign up for a Betfair account. Deposit about £100 (you can start with less but it speeds up the process and makes it easier if you have more in your account)

  • Register at a bookmaker of your choice. You can see details about the free bets that bookmakers offer in our Bonuses and Site Reviews section.

  • Find a match to place your qualifying bet on. This takes time as it is important to find out where the odds are most favourable. (I will be adding a list of matches that are good for matched betting soon)

  • Deposit funds into your account at the bookmaker. (If the bookmaker you choose has a 100% free bet up to £25 then deposit £25 into the bookmaker)

  • Make a bet with the money you just deposited on the match you chose (e.g. £25 on a team to win)

  • Use the spreadsheet attached to this link to work out how much you need to wager at Betfair

  • Go to Betfair and find the match that you have bet on at the bookmakers. But this time click on the Lay button for the same team that you bet to win and bet the amount that the spreadsheet says in the Lay Stake field.

    Here is an example of how it would work and what you need to do using Betway as the bookmaker.

    Silkeborg v AaB - 05 April at 12:00

    Stake £25.00 - make a £25.00 free bet!

    Back The Draw in Betway

    In Betway find the "Danish SAS ligaen" matches from the football menu and locate the "Silkeborg v AaB" match. Stake £25 on The Draw at odds of 3.40

    Lay (bet against) The Draw in Betfair

    In Betfair on the left menu click Soccer > Danish Soccer > SAS ligaen > Fixtures 05 April > Silkeborg v AAB > Match Odds. Click the PURPLE box showing odds of 3.35 and lay £25.76 against The Draw. Your liability will be £60.54.

    All outcomes are now covered

    You will make an acceptable loss of £0.54 from this bet in order to obtain the £25.00 free bet.

    * If its a draw you will make £60.00 profit in Betway to cover the £60.54 liability lost in Betfair.

    * If it’s not a draw you will make £24.47 profit in Betfair (your £25.76 lay stake minus 5% commission) to cover the £25.00 deposit lost in Betway.



  • With your free bet from the bookmakers first find out if it the stake is returned or not. This information should be in the thread about the bookmaker in the Bonuses and Site Reviews section. (most bookies do not return the stake)

  • Find a match to bet on that will give the most profit. You should be aiming to get about 70% of the free bet back as profit. (The general rule is that the higher the odds, the more profit you can make. Be careful to check you have enough in your betfair account to cover laying the bet)

  • Use your free bet on the match that you have chosen.

  • Go to Betfair and lay the amount that the spreadsheet says you should lay for the same amount of profit if the bet at the bookmakers or Betfair wins.

    Here is an example using Betway again for how to place your free bet.


    Liverpool v Benfica - 08 April at 19:05

    Make £18.95 guaranteed profit from the £25.00 free bet!

    Back Benfica in Betway

    In Betway find the "UEFA Europa League" matches from the football menu and locate the "Liverpool v Benfica" match. Stake £25 on Benfica at odds of 5.75

    Lay (bet against) Benfica in Betfair

    In Betfair on the left menu click Soccer > UEFA Europa League > Fixtures 08 April > Liverpool v Benfica > Match Odds. Click the PURPLE box showing odds of 6.00 and lay £19.96 against Benfica. Your liability will be £99.8.

    All outcomes are now covered

    You will make £18.95 profit from the £25.00 free bet.

    * If Benfica win you will make £118.75 profit in Betway to cover the £99.80 liability lost in Betfair.

    * If Liverpool win or it’s a draw you will make £18.96 profit in Betfair (your £19.96 lay stake minus 5% commission) and lose nothing in Betway as it was a free bet.

  • Wait for the match to be finished and you will have a profit.

  • Repeat using another bookmaker and continue making risk free profit.


With the examples that I used you would get a guaranteed profit of £18.95 without actually risking anything at all because you had all of the options covered. This can be done at a lot of bookmakers and you can earn a lot of money from it.

As the government class this as gambling earnings you will not need to pay tax on anything you make either.

As I mentioned in the steps above, I am going to create a list of good matches to use for each bookmaker. This will be updated once a week.

It is really important to keep a log of all of your bets and results so you don't make any silly mistakes. Also a good way to keep track of how much profit you have made so far.

 
 
As you may have seen, there is now a forums page. This links to the new MSGWorld Forums.

The main focus of these forums are Poker, Sports Betting and Finance. There are many subforums in each of these categories to keep similar topics close together.

Anyone is welcome to join the forums and contribute. Hopefully we can build up the content really fast and make it a real community.

If anyone has any serious interest and history with some of the subjects and is interested in becoming a moderator please contact me.
 
 
There is a new page on the site. It is a page with CASHBACK OFFERS on.

MSG World are offering great CASHBACK deals on a number of websites for signing up through our banners and referral codes.

Sign up using the form on the CASHBACK OFFERS page to receive the full list of current CASHBACK OFFERS and select whether you would like to receive the CASHBACK NEWSLETTER when new offers become available.

Some of the offers are displayed at the bottom of the CASHBACK OFFERS page, but there are a lot of offers that are only availble when you sign up to receive the full list with terms and conditions. The best option is to sign up for the CASHBACK NEWSLETTER as you will receive up to date information regarding all current and new CASHBACK OFFERS as soon as they occur.

I have made some changes to the site and plan on making some more in the future, they are listed and described below.

SUBSCRIBE PAGE

I have also added a Subscribe page to the site. You can sign up for the weekly email newsletter and updates here. I also give some information about RSS and how to subscribe to my RSS feed. There is also some information about RSS and what it does, and some information about my favourite and probably the best RSS reader.

BEST OF MSGWORLD

There is now a Best of MSG World section just on the right side of the blog. This has links to my Favourite and most popular blog posts. So far there are three posts there. My first big article HYIPs (High Yield Investment Programs) and Sports Arbitrage Betting. Part One of my four part post about my Day of poker on PokerStars. Third post there is the one about my Canvas Prints For Sale.

SOCIAL NETWORKING BUTTONS

As you can see in the sidebar of the blog, I have added some social networking buttons. If you click on the share button you will get the option to share this page on a choice of social networking sites, not limited to but including Facebook, Twitter, Myspace, Delicious, and many more. I have also added a Skype button so that you can see my skype status. Feel free to add me to Skype if you would like to talk to me or send me anything. The Skype button will tell you when I am online or offline. I also have a Twitter box a bit lower down on the sidebar that displays my current Twitter status.

WIDGETS

I have added some widgets to the side bar of the blog and plan on adding more widgets in the future if they can be of benefit to the site and to you, the reader. I've added a day calender just underneath the Categories section.
I'm a big fan of good quotes and have added a "Quote of the Day" widget too. For the sports fans out there I have added two widgets lower down on the sidebar. One gives a brief summary of the latest Premier League news from SkySports and the other has a brief summary of the latest sports news from SkySports. These are close to the Betfair banners. I have found Betfair to be the best place to place any bets on Sports, Football in particular. This is because Betfair are not a bookmakers but a betting exchange, so your bets are placed against other people at odds that you choose.

GOOGLE ADSENSE SCRAPPED

I have removed all google adsense links for good. This is because they do not allow people to use adsense if their website has content related to gambling. I thought it would be best to switch ad companies to Bidvertiser and Adbrite as they do not have such strict terms and conditions and provide a service just as good, if not better.

CANVAS PRINTS FOR SALE PAGE

I have been thinking about the Canvas Prints For Sale page. I have decided that I might be moving them from this site onto a brand new website where they can be the main focus of the site, rather than them just being an extra page on this blog. I have created a poll which can be seen below asking you what you think I should do.

OTHER CHANGES YOU WOULD LIKE TO SEE

If there are any other changes that you would like to see to the site then let me know using the Contact Me page or leave a comment on the blog post.
 
 
I have created a new page on the site. It will be selling photographs printed onto canvas. All the photos available were taken by me this January whilst visiting Torrey Pines State Reserve in California. There are three basic shape categories for the prints; square, portrait and panoramic. I hope to add to the selection available as I take more quality photographs.

The prints are of the highest quality at very reasonable prices. Here is some information about the canvas prints, the quality of the materials, and how to maintain and look after them.

Real artists' stretcher bars are used to make up every frame. We offer a choice of two depths - Choose from our slim frames which are 19mm deep or opt for our chunky frames which are 38mm deep.

We only use 100% cotton canvas. Our canvas weighs in at a whopping great 400gsm - now that's the best there is on the market!

We only use genuine HP Vivera quality inks. These inks are guaranteed for over 100 years and are the absolute best on the market! Our inks help create up to 72 million rich and vibrant colours; helping to bring the photos to life.

To maintain & increase the lifespan of your canvas, do not expose to continuous, strong sunlight or moisture. Do not clean with a wet/damp cloth; a light vacuum with the brush attachment will get rid of any dust on the surface. We provide you with a list of really useful information to help you care for your canvas with your item.

The header photo on the top of this website is also available for print onto canvas at the same prices as the panoramic range. Shipping is guaranteed within 8 days, as it takes time to get the photos onto canvas and process payment. Paypal is the accepted method of payment for now, although other payment processors may be added in the future if demand increases. I'm really happy with how the photos have come out and look forward to providing you with some great pieces of artwork to hang on to hang on your walls.

My favourite three prints are shown below with the cheapest (smallest) print available for each.
Picture
Square Canvas - 10' x 10' - £29.99
Picture
Portrait Canvas - 10' x 12' - £29.99
Picture
Panoramic Canvas - 20' x 10' - £39.99
