Gambling Site Recommendations
Plenty of other sites offer great information about gambling. I’ve recommended some of them here. I’m a big fan of using real recommendations from real people to help you find informational sites on a variety of subjects instead of just looking at what Google has to show you. I guess I’m old-fashioned, but I’d rather get a recommendation from a person than from a machine, even if that machine is really smart. I’ve organized the listings by category below:
Ken Smith’s BlackjackInfo.com – Ken’s site offers a basic strategy engine, so you can maximize your chances of winning no matter what the rules are where you’re playing. He also offers a summary of the rules for playing in general, active message boards, and interviews.
Casino City – The most detailed and comprehensive database and guide to casinos, both online and off, on the Internet. The site includes sections about various casino games like slots, but also other gambling games like poker and bingo. The directory, organized by geography, software, and multiple other factors, is tremendous. GamblingSites.net – Includes guides to online casinos, but also covers online poker, horse racing, and sports betting. Learn How to Play Casino Games is a new site with information about how to play various casino games, including blackjack, craps, and roulette. The content there was written by Tex Lawton, one of the best (and newest) writers in the gambling niche. Disclosure–I helped edit and design the site, but the content was all written by Tex.
The DMOZ Directory offers a hand-edited list of gambling sites. It’s a volunteer-edited directory, but the main criterion for a listing here is unique content. If you’re looking for a list of sites that’s a little more extensive than what I have here, then this is a good place to start. The Yahoo Directory is a professionally-edited directory of sites on various topics. I’ve linked to their gambling section. They’re one of the oldest sites of this type online.
Casinomeister – The forums here are easily the most extensive and active gambling forums on the Internet today. Some message boards in this niche are obviously and clearly fake, while others are more subtle, but spend just a little bit of time in the Casinomeister forums, and you’ll realize that they’re the real deal.
Find some of the best horse racing betting sites at GamblingSites.org. This directory features a large number of categories and quite a bit of unique content of varying kinds, but the section on horse racing is one of the best I’ve been able to find online.
Learn how slot machines really work at Wizard of Odds. His site offers detailed explanations of the math behind a wide variety of games, but in terms of sites with real information about slot machines, this is probably the best page on the Internet. (My own site excepted, of course.) Online Pokie Reviews at AustralianGambling.com.au – An amazing number of reviews of Internet slot machine games from an Australian perspective. Those people LOVE slot machines. I’m not accepting submissions for new listings on this page at this time.
