part 1 What you need to know about toll free calls.

Everyone uses toll free numbers almost everyday. Look inrepparttar “Yellow Pages of your phone book, nearly all ofrepparttar 125521 businesses have a toll free number for you to call them.

Okay so what is a toll free number?

A toll free number is a number that rings to your home telephone number and you pay forrepparttar 125522 call and notrepparttar 125523 person that calls. I can hear you saying “Why would I want to pay for someone’s call to me?”

Good question and here’srepparttar 125524 answer.

Let’s say you have a son or daughter in collage. He or she has several options to call home. Direct calls, collect calls, calling card, prepaid calling cards, and toll free.

Direct Calls – Unless your son or daughter attends collage inrepparttar 125525 same city you live in,repparttar 125526 collage will not let them make direct dial calls.

Collect calls – Most collect calls cost you $4.95 just to makerepparttar 125527 call then 25 to 50 cents a minute. This can add up to about $15.00 onrepparttar 125528 average call. Make ten calls and you are looking at $150.00 added to your phone bill every month.

Calling Cards – Your phone company provides you with a calling card and they sure do want you to use it! Look onrepparttar 125529 back of their card, (in fine print) atrepparttar 125530 charges, most charge you 75 cents to makerepparttar 125531 call and 25 cents a minute. But that’s not all; if your son or daughter is using a payphone (which is what is most likely in their dorm) they also charge you a payphone fee of 75 cents to $1.50 to makerepparttar 125532 call. So you add uprepparttar 125533 charges 75 cents + 75 cents to $1.50 payphone fee + (let’s sayrepparttar 125534 call is 20 minutes long) 25 cents minute x 20 minutes = (usingrepparttar 125535 75 cent payphone fee) $6.50 per call. For 10 calls that adds $65.00 to your phone bill every month. Don’t forget that with your calling card in their hand they are free to call their friends too!

The $100 Slot Challenge By Tony R Frank, www.slotadvisor.com

“You have $100 to bet at a casino… your challenge is to double your money. How would you tackle this challenge?”

Is there a strategy for doubling a $100 bankroll playing slot machines? If you assumed that slots are purely a game of luck, I’ve got news for you. Instead of playing haphazardly and hoping forrepparttar best, you can use methods that give you about as good a chance as if you were to plunk down $100 for even-money betting at your favorite table game. First I would pickrepparttar 125520 right machine. Some slots give you a good shot at meeting this challenge while others are more likely to steal all your money. The most important feature when choosing a machine isrepparttar 125521 pay table. Too many players are attracted to a slot machine danglingrepparttar 125522 carrot of a huge jackpot. Others pick one simply because its big and shiny and looks enticing.

Large jackpots mean fewer smaller payouts. Big winners’ fortunes are financed not byrepparttar 125523 casino but by many losers. It is better to select machines with small to moderate jackpots. Forrepparttar 125524 same wager, you have a much better chance of winning 800 coins than you would have chasing 20,000 coins.

Also avoid slots where half of all possible payouts are inrepparttar 125525 2, 5, 10 and 20 coin range. Although you might get frequent wins,repparttar 125526 amounts aren’t big enough to prevent your bankroll from slowly but surely grinding down to zero.

The best strategy for meeting this double-your-money challenge is to look for a single pay line, two-coin machine with a modest jackpot and a pay table featuring a good range of medium sized prizes.

The ideal pay table looks something like this: One Coin Two Coins 800 1,600 80 160 60 120 40 80 30 60 20 40 10 20 5 10 2 4 On slot machines with this kind of pay board, wins of small to medium proportions occur more frequently, because most ofrepparttar 125527 money does not have to go towards a giant jackpot. You have an excellent chance of catching enough mid-range payouts to stretch your time atrepparttar 125528 machine by simply recycling your winnings. The longer you can make your money last,repparttar 125529 better your chances of eventually lining uprepparttar 125530 jackpot combination. To succeed at slots you need staying power.
