Making money while playing games - how many of you have thought of this as children, or even young adults? I guess many of you have dreamed of it, even if your moms used to tell you that "nobody is going to pay you for playing non-stop". Thanks to modern technology, we now have several ways to be paid for playing games. Some of them involve a career in the game development industry - but these are usually not as much fun as they sound. But there's another way to get paid to play, with no need for expertise - but only luck. It's call an online casino.
Entertainment for money
The online casino industry is the only branch of the iGaming business that relies on simple, entertaining games to make a living. And most players at the wildjackcasino.com are there not to make a buck, but to have fun in their own way. Most casino games at the Wild Jack Casino are designed to entertain first, and you need a lot of luck for them to be profitable in the long run. They are built this way - although they are completely fair, most games at the Wild Jack Casino are far too unreliable to be considered as a steady source of income. But slot machines are not the only games at the Wild Jack Casino that are fun to play. There are several others that, when played the right way, can help you round up your budget. Or even make you rich - if you are very lucky.
Games for the pros
Most casino games are completely random, but there are some that have a lower variance. Blackjack is one of them - it is considered by many the game with the most profit-making potential in the long run. Simply playing blackjack is usually not enough for success, though - it is random enough for it to be almost completely unpredictable. What makes it special, though, is that it leaves a lot of room for player decision. And taking the right decision at the blackjack table often means the difference between winning and losing.
The most widespread method of turning blackjack into a profitable game is the so-called "basic strategy". This consists of a list of recommendations about what you should do (and not do) depending on the value of your hand, and the card revealed by the dealer. It's quite easy to learn, and equally easy to use. Applying the basic strategy can improve the percentage of your winning hands significantly. Other games with a series of relatively "safe" bets are War, video poker, and Roulette. All of these can be played in a way for them to be in the player's advantage. And all of them are fun games to play, so you can play games, be entertained, and make a buck at the same time.
I live opposite the Ditherington Flaxmill in Shrewsbury - the oldest iron structure building in the world. It's fallen into disrepair over the past 20-30 years however we had the chance to look at the plans for redevelopment. At the same time I took some photos of the accessible areas:
The road facing side of the main building is covered in scaffolding.
The mill closed in the 1980's, it has been abandoned since.
The site has a very strange feel to it.
The architects behind the two phase redevelopment are applying for planning permission.
There are various regeneration plans for the South Silo including turning it into a clean energy building with a Bio Mass boiler.
All windows have either been boarded up or smashed.
The out lying buildings are set to be turned into offices or apartments.
The delivery point for the south silo.
The internal structure is held up with scaffolding. Many of the architects plans deal with how to support the current structure with a modern steel frame.
Signs still exist from the Flaxmills long history.
The redevelopment plans have wide public support.

Pete White, Shropgeek regular and one of the organisers of (R)Evolution conference, said:
“Shropshire has a huge digital / creative industry and there are very few events in the county that directly cater for those involved. This event promises to be a fantastic evening combining talks from some of the most innovative thinkers and doers with a wide range of topics designed to appeal specifically to people working within the digital and creative industries.”
So why not come along and join us, listen to some inspiring talks, spark your creativity and chat with like-minded people over a beer or maybe even a cocktail (or two).
