Professional Video Game Testing – What Games Will I Test as A Paid Game Tester?

If you’re interested in pursuing a career as a video game tester, but still have some doubts about it, then you will want to read this article. In it, I will answer the questions of most aspiring young game testers and talk about the different games that are tested.The games you will test as a video game tester largely depend upon the developing company you are working for. The simple fact is that no matter what company you’re working for, you’ll be testing games that have yet to be released to the public and are nearing the final stages of development. Typically, you will test games in a variety of different genres, which means you should have some level of expertise in all the different types of video games (FPS, MMORPG, RTS, RPG, Racing, Sports, Etc).If you are a specialist in only one particular game type, such as role-playing games or racing games, and nothing else, then you won’t likely make for a good professional video game tester. That’s not to say you won’t get any game testing jobs. It’s just that you won’t have as large of a “job field” as most other game testers. Generally speaking, if you’re going to make it as a professional video game tester, then you simply must be skilled with different video game genres. There is really no other way to look at it.Why must you be an “expert” in a multitude of different video game types? Simply because the game company that hires you will determine what type of video games you will be testing. You can’t pick and choose what game you want to test; it doesn’t work that way, unfortunately. On a side note, many video game tester jobs will involve testing computer games. This is due to the fact that PC video games are prone to having many glitches and bugs. Don’t worry about being a PC game tester though, as there are plenty of companies that focus purely on console gaming systems. However, it wouldn’t hurt to get some PC gaming experience.When you’re done testing a game, it is yours to keep with no strings attached. This is a great way to amass a library of awesome video games for free. It’s true these videos games won’t be technically “complete”, but that’s just a technicality. After all, a free video game is still a free video game.Generally, the games you will test will be sent via snail-mail, along with a “Glitch/Bug” report form that you will fill out after you’ve completed the game testing. And, just in case you haven’t caught on yet, this means you will be getting paid to play video games from the comfort of your own home!Video game testers really do have it made. They get paid to play the coolest and most technologically advanced video games, and they get to do it from their very own home. Honestly, what more could any gamer ask for?

Casinos Online – The Cherry on the Cake

Playing games is something that is intrinsic to human nature, it is universal, and all cultures play games. Gambling is also intrinsic in human nature and while some people play the game for the fun of it and winning is enough, others will wager money, their wives, their cars, homes or kingdoms on the outcome of a game.This concept has not changed for millennia and online casinos are not going to create more gambling problems, if the problem was there to begin with. Illegalizing gambling does not work; the first thing that happens is games go underground. They are still played and fortunes are still won and lost.For the lover of games of chance, the online casino is the icing on the cake and the cherry on top! Why? Because it is so convenient! Access to high speed broadband is available world-wide, perhaps more so in some countries than others, but chances are that records will be broken and online gamblers will sit atop Mount Everest and play a game of online blackjack before descending.Every game you could possibly imagine and more is available at online casinos, roulette, craps, blackjack, video poker, bingo, poker, rummy, backgammon, baccarat, keno, slots, scratchies and even arcade games are becoming pay for play. They are developing and evolving all the time!One coin, the right coin placed on a pay line in a slot machine can win a player millions of pounds, dollars or whatever currencies you please, and change their lives forever. But the UK industry has evolved far more than the US industry because of the law. US operators have to contend with UIGEA which is another stupid attempt by this government to stop people from doing something they want to do and have in fact been doing since time immemorial.

Playing Online Slots the Smart Way

We all dream of playing slots and hitting it
big. We all know that it is possible to wager a small amount and become an
instant millionaire. However the reality of playing slots, be it at a land
based or internet casino is that you play until you have no money left to play
with and possibly feel disappointed that you played. It does not have to
be like this. Even in a game like slots, that is largely a game of chance,
there is a way to play smarter and more successfully.Here is a strategy to help you improve your
success rate when you play online slots.Stop playing when you are ahead – know when
to stop playing. When playing slots there is a good chance, that
at some stage, you will be ahead. It may not be a lot of money, but you
are in the money. What most players tend to do is hope that they will win
more, so they keep playing. Its pure greed that keeps players playing. And
what usually happens is they play back all that they have in the hope of winning
big (or bigger).The fact of the matter is that the longer you
play, the greater the probability that the casino will win. So don’t be greedy
and don’t play for too long. Know when to stop playing.Play slowly and determine upfront what you
want to achieve in playing. Determine how many hours you want to play
for as well as how much you would like to win. If you determine this
before playing and stick to it, the chances are you will have a more rewarding
playing experience.Establish realistic and achievable goals and
stop playing once you achieve your goals. For example, lets assume you are
happy to play $100 on a slot machine, and you want to make $25 000. This
is not very realistic. You may make $30 and can walk away from the machine
with $130. That’s a 30% return!! Where else can you make 30% in such a
short space of time. You need to be realistic and stop playing when you
are in the money.However, your goal may be to make your $100
last for 2 hours, than play for 2 hours and stop thereafter, whether you are
ahead of the game or not. You have achieved your goal.Know your machine by reading the payout
table. Before you begin to play an unfamiliar machine, read the payout table
and other information. It will tell you how many coins to play for he maximum
payout. Its horrible to see the jackpot combinations come up and you have not
played enough coins to win.We can summarize what is required to play
successful slots by referring to the term “discipline”. You need to be
disciplined to know when it is time to stop and stop. You need to set
realistic playing goals and stick to them. Play slow, know your machine
and stop playing when you have attained our goals. You may not win the big
one, but you won’t lose either and your playing experience will definitely be
more rewarding.
