History of slot machines: a growing evolution :

The first slot machine was invented by Charles August Fey, a German expatriate living in the United States at the end of the 19th century. He began by building the Horseshoe, a disc machine, and the “4/11/44”, a machine offering a hundred possibilities, ancestor of the first three-reel “One-armed Bandit” which he then built in 1887. A machine mechanical which had five symbols (a horseshoe, a diamond, a spade, a heart and a bell). Then comes the Card Bell, then its big sister the Liberty Bell, which offers a thousand possibilities and which was very successful in the region until 1920, during prohibition in the USA. The Liberty model lasted until the sixties before the arrival of electromechanical and video slot machines in the eighties. In particular, the player’s recuperator was included.

Today, slot machines have become true jewels of technology. In France, they were allowed in casinos only in 1986. Note that the record of winnings on a slot machine in France dates from March 2011, a player having cashed more than 9 million euros!

There are hundreds of different machines. You can walk around the games room and choose a machine whose design or animations appeal to you more. There are machines, with three or five reels for example, which offer you a large number of possible combinations. If you are an animation fan, there are also plenty of themed machines. Or, if you are a poker player, you may prefer Video Poker machines.

In terms of winnings, slot machines all promise an interesting jackpot, often mentioned at the top of the machine. The biggest jackpots are found on progressive slots. No other casino game allows you to win so much, so easily and quickly. The interest lies in the jackpots, you do not sit in front of a slot machine just to be content to double your initial bet.

The slots are ideal for playing alone, but it is also possible to play several for more fun (only one seat and one choice per machine, however). Your friends can settle down and share your emotions. And it is possible to change the machine every minute if you wish! In short, impossible to get tired of slot machines.

If slot machines are dependent on complete chance and do not require any particular strategy, it is in any case recommended to choose your machine in proportion to the budget available. Wagering small but having a large number of playable credits guarantees that you will play longer, which is true for all games, but particularly for one-armed bandits. Otherwise, when it comes time to choose the number of paylines you are going to play, it is advisable to choose the maximum number.

Electronic English Roulette:

Electronic Roulette is an English Roulette played without a dealer, where the ball is launched by a machine. A variant that is hugely successful in France, because it offers a simplified gaming experience with just as much fun! In addition, more players can sit around and participate in Electronic Roulette.

History: an immediate success

Electronic Roulette has been offered in French casinos since 2013. Its success is such that all the major gaming establishments are now equipped with it in France. The most recent casinos today offer real Electronic Roulette rooms, with a large number of gaming stations.

Like Electronic Black-Jack, Electronic English Roulette is intended for those who prefer the comfort of an armchair to the hubbub of a gaming table. In addition, the number of players is greater in Electronic Roulette, unlike the Traditional English Roulette, so you will more easily find a place (an electronic gaming station) to take part in the game.

Here again, Electronic Roulette allows beginners to learn about the pleasures of Roulette before moving on to traditional English Roulette, especially since the minimum bet amount is lower. Electronic English Roulette is offered by 36 Partouche casinos.

Electronic Black-Jack:

Following in the footsteps of English Roulette, Black-Jack has gone electronic in recent years, and Electronic Black-Jack tables are multiplying at high speed in France. The principle is the same as in Black-Jack: try to beat the bank without exceeding a total of 21 with your cards.

Trial gallop

Electronic Black-Jack is for players who prefer to sit quietly in front of their individual screen rather than having to share a gaming table with their peers. In addition, no need to interact with a dealer, all player orders are transmitted electronically. Like all electronic games compared to their alter ego at the gaming table, Electronic Black-Jack makes it easier to visualize all the solutions available after each player’s action.

Before sitting down to the table

An ideal launching pad for beginner players, who can thus tame the game before settling down at a real Black-Jack table. In addition, it is possible to play for less than on a traditional Black-Jack table, and at any time during the casino’s opening hours: with Electronic Black-Jack, no need to wait for the launch of traditional games to play.

English roulette:

English Roulette is defined as a derivative of French Roulette, the rules being identical. The only notable difference concerns the tokens allocated to players and the number of authorized players. You will therefore find the same sensations in the English version!

Roulette specialists

English Roulette is identical to French Roulette, with two exceptions:

  • You cannot bet with casino chips. Each player is indeed assigned specific tokens, characterized by a unique color.
  • A maximum of seven players is allowed at the table.

English Roulette is therefore intended mainly for big roulette players, who wish to stay at the table for a long time and place many bets themselves before each ball toss. Thus, it is easier for them to visualize the distribution of their different bets, as well as their value, since each player assigns a unique value to the set of chips he has. A very useful simplification for setting up strategies without making mistakes.

The Black-Jack:

Often, when a player enters a casino for the first time, they try two games: Roulette and … Black-Jack. World famous and popular, Black-Jack is indeed the great classic of table games in casinos. Easy to play, it is popular with everyone!

History: Old as the world

Literally meaning “Black Jack”, Black-Jack would have been born around 1700 in French casinos under the name “21”. Its spread took place in the 1900s in North America thanks to French settlers, with slightly different rules. In 1931, during the legalization of gambling in the USA, the casinos of Vegas then began an operation to seduce the players, by giving a bonus of 10 to 1 for a hand of 21 points including the Jack of Spades and an Ace. Since then, Black-Jack, whose name is inspired by that time, has continued to develop, and is an essential game for any self-respecting casino. Appearing in numerous films, he has often made headlines for card counting affairs by famous players but that is no longer possible today. Enough to further increase the legend of Black-Jack …

Do like the pros:

Black-Jack is a very easy game to learn, since the players have only one goal: to get as close as possible to the number 21. To play, you just need to have some basic math skills, which makes it easier to play. makes it accessible to as many people as possible. It is suitable for all types of players. And the Black-Jack has a great strategic aspect as long as one is seriously interested in it. Most of the time, players simply double their bet if they beat the dealer. But the game can be very exciting, especially when the player has the opportunity to double down. You can play Black-Jack in all Partouche casinos.

Strategy: a real advantage

Black-Jack is a game where strategy is omnipresent. It is thus very easy to calculate your expectation of gain, and the basic strategies make it possible to limit the advantage of the bank. They are summarized below:

  • Always draw a card with a total of cards equal to or less than 11.
  • If you have a total of 10 or 11, double if the bank’s total is lower.
  • In any case, you must not draw any more cards if you are at 18.

Person – Sofiane Kasdar

Today, many self-taught people go through the personal path of learning rather than the long journey of school. A demanding trail, but much more rewarding at the end of the road, many do not have the courage, the patience or the will to stick to it until the end. However, today we are going to talk about one of those fighter, who knew how to stand a single and difficult apprenticeship.

A very ambitious goal

At only 17 years old, Sofiane Kasdar decided to quit the school where he played high-level sports football with only the technological baccalaureate diploma STT (Tertiary Sciences and Technologies) in his pocket. It was then the start of a great adventure. Determined to come out with dignity, he studies on his own, aiming very high: his goal is to join the French national company Orange, a telecommunications operator and bank.

Congratulated for her exemplary work, Sofiane Kasdar works over time in very diverse French sectors: Marseille, Plerin, Rennes and Tarnos.

Encouraged by her family, Sofiane Kasdar as well as her brothers and sisters (one brother and two sisters) are doing admirably: radio physicist, lawyer as well as a commercial engineer at La Défense.
