Reason #1 I like Bovada:

Play for free
with no hassles

Most online casinos insult you with popups and spam, and they give you the hard sell even if you just want to try their free-play games.  Fortunately there's Bovada, which is the opposite.  That's the primary reason they're the only online casino I accept advertising from.

  • No registration required.  Most casinos let you play for free with fake money, but there's a catch: They make you register an account first.   That's not just a hassle: after you register you can expect them to badger you by email trying to get you to deposit real money.  But Bovada lets you play right away without forcing you to register an account.  Just close any registration boxes that appear, and then you can play without registering.  Here, try it.
  • Plays right in your browser.  If you'd rather not download the casino software to your hard disk, you don't have to.  The games play right in your web browser.  Nice.
  • Works on Macs.  The play-in-browser games are MacOS compatible!  Before Bovada, Mac users were pretty much out of luck for gambling online, even for free-play.  Not any more.

Bovada's not perfect, but there's no better site serving most of the U.S.

Martingale Betting System Tester

See the Martingale in action

Last update: September 2019

Here's yet another exclusive from Easy Vegas: a computer simulation that plays the Martingale Betting System until it runs out of money, so you can (1) see how the Martingale works, and (2) see how long you might go before a bust.  The result is random every time, so after you run it, you can run it again and get different results.

Starting bet: $   Bankroll $

Game:


If the results aren't clear:

  1. Each line is a series of bets, ending with a winning bet.  We double until we win.
  2. Red bets are losing bets.  Green bets are winning bets.  Each line ends with a green bet, because we always double until we win.
  3. The sim ends when there's not enough money to place the next doubled bet.
  4. Click the "Play" button to run the simulation.  Click it again to run a new sim.

Want to try it on a table?

The best way to try out the Martingale is to play the fake-money games at Bovada online, because then you're not out anything if you lose.  You can certainly bet with real money, but remember the very real chance of the catastrophic loss!

Note that for this to work, the table has to allow a bet spread of at least $1-$200 or $5-1000.  Lots of online casinos don't, but Bovada does.  In brick-and-mortar casinos, $5 to $1000 is pretty common.

Practice gambling with play money

Before you throw down your hard-earned cash in a casino, PRACTICE FIRST!  Learn the games with play money where it doesn't cost you anything if you lose.  Seriously.

I like Bovada's practice games the best, because you can play right away without registering for an account.  Most every other online casino makes you give up your email address just to play the fake-money games — ugh.  That's why Bovada is the only online casino that gets space on my site.  I hope other casinos will eventually start treating their visitors like human beings rather than walking wallets, but until they do, there's Bovada.  One click and you're in.
