Tips & Guides On How To Approach Winning Online
For the most part, it’s fair to say that we all want to win at something. Right?
Winning is a desire that’s built at some level into pretty much all of us - and when it comes to money, there are very few of us that don't want to win money when we have the chance. Whether it's a little or a lot, the internet has widened the number of chances to win money through a variety of games, competitions, and betting. These might be opportunities to win at games of pure chance or luck, or by using an element of skill to influence outcomes in our favour.
Of course, often it's not just about the money. Our attempts at winning money are driven by, and satisfy, a number of human needs - not least the desire for immediate excitement and anticipation. Who hasn't felt the elation of winning at some point in their lives? Who hasn't felt the anticipation - the build up?
If you have, then you'll know that pumped up feeling, where the adrenalin is rushing and you're on top of the world. If you recognise that feeling, you'll know exactly what I mean.
Personally that's why I bet - actually making the attempt to win some cash can be just as much fun as winning. As long as you approach it in the right way.
And it does need to be fun. In fact at any time where you get to the point where you're thinking ' it's not fun' then that's the point you need to be deciding whether to call a halt.
Very few people make a living at betting or gambling. Very few people ever experience a big win.
If you decide to risk your own money to win more of it you need to be acutely aware of this hard fact.
That's why it needs to be more than just a 'pursuit of money' exercise, I'm convinced that the individual approach to this spells out whether you're one of the few who will have problems controlling their betting activity, or whether you can use it in careful ways to get a little extra enjoyment and throw in the chance to maybe get some extra cash.
The odds against winning a cash prize are often high, but you don't always have to risk a great deal of money to have a chance of hitting that elusive jackpot.
So you'll be surprised to learn that making a few hundred dollars is not the point of this site. The point of this site is to show you where and how you can make a few hundred dollars, pounds, or euros. But not just once. Or twice. But consistently.
People have done it. I've done it. It can be done.
When you start to look at the ways how and where to do it, those ways to get the chance of seeing consistent profit over a period of time will start to become clear.

Carlton Cold Innovative Beer Contest
Unfortunately for Australian residents only (and only those near Sydney most likely), this is a contest I came across which I've never seen before.
A $50,000 cash prize has been hidden inside a Carlton Cold beer bottle, which itself is hidden in a massive block of ice outside Sydney’s Customs House.
Tools are provided, and passers by are allowed 2 minutes each to have a go at digging into the ice block to find the beer bottle. You can choose from an ice cream scoop (LOL), a meat hammer, and some drills to make the attempt.
The video below explains further....
November 21st Glossy Bingo Mobile Launch And New Bonuses
Glossy Bingo are launching a new mobile interface in an attempt to keep up with other mobile bingo operators. They'll be offering a bundle of promotions over coming weeks including a valuable looking 400% first deposit bonus.
November 19th BGO Bingo Improved Deposit Bonus Offer
BGO Bingo have upped their existing bonus offer from 200% to a tasty looking 500%. It's rare to see bonuses this high, especially with a low £5 minimum deposit. That means for casual or new bingo players, you'll get £25 free playing money on just a £5 deposit.
The great news on top of this is that BGO also give away free spins on three of their popular slots games - Gonzo’s Quest, South Park, and Starburst. After your initial registration, you'll get 20 free spins added to your account per day on each of the next nine days. Make sure you use them quickly, each batch expires after 24 hours.
As with pretty much any bonus, there are rules surrounding withdrawal. You'll need to wager 5 times the value of the bonus (example £125 if you'd deposited £5 and took the £25 bonus).
November 18th Platinum Play Casino No-Deposit Bonus 1500 Free Casino Bets.
I've seen this Platinum Play free bet bonus around for some time. It's a great way to get some free playing time. Basically the offer does give you 1500 free credits, but you can only keep up to 100. There's another catch - you must have played through the whole 1500 in order to withdraw any winnings plus you must have made a deposit of at least 20. And another one - the 1500 free bets only last for 48 hours after registration.
All in all it's still worthwhile taking this up. You do get the normal 100% bonus on your first deposit too. Plus you can get another 10% if using a deposit method such as Neteller or Moneybookers.
November 13th 32Red Casino Promotion - All Expenses Paid Gold Coast Australia Trip

November 12th Probability Daily Bonus Bonanza
The mobile gambling operator Probability recently announced the launch of a new ‘Daily Bonanza Bonus’ specifically for players in the UK and Italy. This new promotion gives players the chance to win cash very easily - just by logging into their account in fact.

US Players Welcome
Before moving on to look at the 3 key ways of winning money in depth, there are some important elements we need to cover. If you're a beginner, you will find good value in these starting articles below. If you're an experienced player or bettor, you'll want to jump straight to the opportunities.
At this point....
You might be thinking something along the lines of 'why should I trust what this guy tells me about trying to win money online?''
Do you know what? On a lot of websites you'd possibly be right.
But this isn't one of them. It's not alone of course, I could point you to hundreds of sites that you can trust, and there are links to many of them on these pages.
My name's Steve. You can read more about me on the about us page of this site, or the 'about me' page to be more specific. I've spent the last 34 years trying out different ways to win money in one way or another....and I'm still standing.
Have I had some good wins? Yes, one or two biggish ones and a fair number of smaller hits.
Have I found a way to consistently win money with a foolproof method? No. It does not exist. (well actually I'm working on something that needs a lot more testing, but maybe it does exist! More about that another time).
Have I learned a whole bunch of painful lessons? Yes, most surely - and I've had some fun times and a lot of enjoyment along the way too.
I don't regret any of those 34 years worth of trying. But I have managed to control it. Be careful - I'd like to see it to be a joint effort that you know how to control it too.
Take a look at the responsible gaming page before you make any attempt at any form of gambling. Please read it thoroughly.

Revealing The 3 Key Ways To Win Money Online
OK, let's begin our look at the three key ways to try and win cash. There are plenty of different opportunities within each main way, so I'll be breaking them down into sections below.
We'll kick off with what is probably the hardest (or riskiest) but arguably the most enjoyable option - looking for that luck win. After this I'll move on to winning with skill and how to get free wins.
• Play Bingo
You might remember playing bingo with your gran on small pieces of numbered cardboard. Today's online bingo is a long way removed from that. State of the art gaming with a social aspect. Easy to play, but of course it's pure luck if you win.
• Instant Scratchcards
Another way where you need lots of luck to win. That hasn't stopped scratchcards becoming hugely popular. The big draw with scratchcards is from their instant win nature - you know pretty much straight away if and how much you've won.
We all know the scratchies associated with local and national lotteries, but there are gaming websites online which offer instant win scratchcards too.
Get premium winning chances from skill based games. Hold an edge with knowledge and practice and get way ahead of the opposition.
Win A Gold Bar
Playing poker is definitely one of the most popular ways to try and win some extra cash. There's plenty of advice here on how to approach the game........
If you're a poker beginner you'll need to understand what poker bonuses are and where to play for free.
For practice, head on over to any of the internet's biggest poker rooms, Pokerstars or 888Poker com are good places to start. For US players, Bovada.com is a US facing poker room which is fast becoming one of the top sites.
Understanding poker strategy is an essential first step that any aspiring poker player needs to take.
Skillgames are closely related to video gaming above, but there are special sites dedicated to playing skillgames which are definitely worth a look.
If you're good at games like pool or billiards, for example, then the skillgame opportunity could suit you well. There are hundreds of different games to play.
Slightly different to the winning opportunities with video gaming and poker, betting on sports has some very strong plus points. The informed and knowledgeable sports bettor can get ahead of the bookies in various types of sports.
The secrets to success are strong focus, understanding the betting markets, and generally using knowledge, skill, and timing to build up your edge.
Fancy yourself as a champion video gamer? This might just be the option for you. Gaming is one of the most popular pastimes the world over, and opportunities to win cash by playing video games are exploding. If you're good, there are some big opportunities.
The video below is well worth a watch. It's a very open perspective on playing slots in a casino. It makes some very good points about how you should treat attempts to win money in general.

• Play Casino Games
You'll know that playing casino games is unlikely to result in winning money in the long run. Casino's are built to take your money.
But they do offer great entertainment value. If you treat casino gambling as it should be treated - as a bit of fun which gives the chance to end up winning - then you'll be in a good position to enjoy it.
Just the same as with poker, bingo, or sports betting, there are bonuses to be had and promotions to watch out for. Check out the casino promotions page to keep on top of those combined offers which can sometimes give some great value, or that extra bit of reality there are some great places to play live dealer casino games.
Mainly popular in the 'real' world, there are lotteries you can play online. Everyone dreams of a big win, but the odds are heavily against you. Lotteries are just no fun for me, but millions do play them.

Using Betting Bonuses
Make careful use of betting bonuses and promotions and you'll get some valuable extra cash to increase winning chances. Either get bonuses on top of deposits you make, or there are a number of free (no deposit) offers to be found....if you know where to look.
In addition, you'll want to watch out for extra promotions. Quite often these will run side by side with bonus offers - meaning you get twice as much for your money.
Check out these promotions pages for the best combined offers, or read more on the win free money page.
• Enter Sweepstakes
Sweepstakes sit very close to the world of cash competitions, though generally competitions take some form of skill to be in with a chance of winning. In sweepstakes your winning chances are very much driven by luck. What else would you expect with an opportunity that's very straightforward to enter.
The trick with sweepstakes is volume. The more you enter, the more chances. The more likely you are to hit a lucky win at some point.
Visit the sweepstakes page to find out how and where to find the latest opportunities.
Entering competitions or contests for cash prizes is one of the most satisfying - and potentially lucrative - ways of winning money.
