winter is coming....

And it's still a long time until Game of Thrones continues :-(

But first it's christmas session and a lot of skill gaming and gambling sites are giving away bonusses and free plays. So make sure you check your inbox to not miss any opportunities. I'm going to check again for the first time in 6 months to enjoy the free game each day of december.

On a related note, the wizard of odds currently runs a game on his forum at wizard of vegas with a total prize pool of $200 for free. It's 10 rounds of Golden Balls with a 20 players in total. I was lucky enough to be one of the players. Basically each one on one round is a kind of Prisoner's dilemma. Each player can choose to "share" or "steal" against his opponent. If both share each receive half of the money of this round. If both try to steal than the money goes back to the wizard. In the event that just one player selects to steal he'll receive the whole money for this round.
I'm going to reinvest all the money I win into a contest/game here. I'm not sure what it's going to be so feel free to make suggestions. Right now it's either a game of diplomacy online between the first people to comment. Or a guessing game about the number of comments.

If you have any other ideas for a good game to distribute the money feel free to leave a comment!

PS: I'll write a post about the Golden Balls game at wizard of vegas and my strategy after it's finished.

PPS: There is a new browser game that you might want to check out:

Free money from skill game sites

I already mentioned in a previous post that I like to play games for fun and money. Now it's time to compare two of the leading websites in terms of free money. Yes, they offer freerolls if you are a real money player there. I have accounts on three major sites:


I don't play on worldwinner anymore because I didn't like the fact that you can only play there when using Internet Explorer. Because it didn't offer any special games and take about the same fee as the other sites I stopped playing there. So I'll only compare the free money offers of and

Each day there are a couple of freerolls of the same game. All this tournemants start at a fixed time and are open for 2 hours. So you have to logon at the right time to take part in them. Usually the price pool is 50€ or 100€. On weekends there are three additional freerolls lasting from Friday to Sunday. Those also have bigger prices. The problem with all those offers is that you always have to compete against thousands of other players. You have to be really good at the specific game to win even cents (not even mentioning making the top ten and getting a few euros/dollars). Over the last two month I made exactly 3 cents from those free games while playing about 15 of them. *thumbs down*

At this site it's a lot easier to win free money. Each day you can play against the 'Joker' to win 50 cents. Every day you have to play a different game but this opponent isn't so hard. I never practiced before my free game and won about 45% of them. The game is available all day so you can logon any time you want to. Of course there are no big wins possible but if you login anyway it's free money. And it's easy to get.
Over the last two month I made 16.50 € from those free games while playing about 45 of them. *thumbs up*


No matter where you play free money is always nice...even if it's just cents. I wouldn't really bother to check into everyday to check if they offer a game i'm good at. And I miss them way too often. Logging into gameduell once a day and playing a different game fits into my schedule :-)

Do you also play on any of this skill game sites or do you know another ?
