A trip to your nearest vending machine for much-needed sugar rush may prove to be just as disappointing as your confectionary getting stuck in the machine.
The brand new Australian $5 note is being rejected my snack and gambling machines all across Australia, leaving people feeling very defeated. This world first anti-counterfeit note, which has also been designed to help vision impaired individuals is being spat by snack machines and gambling terminals alike.
170 million $5 notes were printed by the Reserve Bank and released on September 1, 2016. However, since their release, they caused more challenges for individuals and vending machine owners.
Bruce Davey, owner of Your Choice Vending, owns approximately 550 vending machines around Sydney, said it would cost him around $30,000.00 to upgrade all his machines to accept the new $5 note. To date, only half of his machines have been upgraded.
Davey said the problem was mainly due to the existing money readers retrofitted to his machines. He further added that some companies make note readers with simple software, which only needs to be updated in order to read the new note. However, other readers are more labour intensive. While, one manufacturer is yet to release a fix for the current money readers. This forced him to buy new readers for some of his machines.
The challenges don’t stop there. Betting company TAB seems to be experiencing similar problems with the new notes. They have since placed signs on their machines to advise gamblers swop their new $5 notes for vouchers.
A spokesperson for TAB said; they are currently updating their machines and plans are in action to have all of their accepting the new note by the end of the year.
Additionally, the Woolworths self-service machines also rejected the notes during the first week of being released. However, this has been resolved by the company updating its software to accept them.

It’s no secret that the casino themed movies provide some of the most exciting forms of entertainment. This has been a popular theme for Hollywood movies for years with some of the classics even being rebooted for newer generations.

Game theory is the science and study of games that involve 2 or more players. The study tries to replicate a model whereby a player can find the most optimal avenue for playing against an opponent who is like-minded and equally as skilled as the former player.
Modern Game Theory was developed in 1920 by a Princeton mathematician, Jon von Neumann. The theory was further developed in the 1950s and 1970s. Although game theory is relevant to skilled game play it has also been expanded into areas that include economics, political science, logic, computer science, biology, and of course poker.
Game theory is not based on one specific strategy that can be used against an opponent. Rather, the strategy revolves around the idea of you facing an opponent that thinks very similarly to the way you do. In fact you could imagine yourself playing against another you and then devising the most optimal way to play a game against an opponent that thinks like you.
Poker can be considered as a zero-sum game. A zero-sum game is one in which the score at the end of a round is zero. Simply put, it’s a game where one player’s gains will amount in losses for the other player/s.
A common reference for explaining a zero-sum game is the prisoner’s dilemma. The prisoner’s dilemma states the following hypothetical situations:
The prisoner’s then have the following probabilities:
We’ll leave it up to you decide what the best course of action is for each prisoner.
A dessert is something that’s fleeting, it lasts for a while but not forever. Yet some of these deserts cost as much as a loft in New York City or a collection of payments on a car. But if you ever have some extra money lying around and feel like being totally opulent and extravagant, then splurging on one of these ridiculously priced desserts might be for you.
Customers can expect to pay a cool $1 010 for one of these cupcakes at the ‘Golden Phoenix’ bakery in Dubai. So what exactly makes this cupcake so expensive? The Golden Phoenix cupcake is made with Ugandan vanilla beans and Amedei Porcelana chocolate. But that alone wouldn’t make the dessert cost as much as it does. It’s probably the 23-karat gold that makes the ‘Golden Phoenix’ cupcake so expensive. So if you’re ever in the mood for a four figure cupcake then the ‘Golden Phoenix’ bakery in Dubai is the place to get it.
If a four figure cupcake isn’t for you, perhaps a doughnut that costs four figures is more to your taste. This Krispy Kreme creation will set you back $1 682. This doughnut is made using a 500 year-old cognac and a 2002 Dom Perignon. But maybe it’s the 34-karat edible gold leaf and the gold-dusted white chocolate that makes this doughnut so expensive.
Macaroons are a French confectionary dessert that have become popular in the last decade. Pastry Chef Piere Herme creates a variety of carefully crafted macaroons. Customers are given freedom to choose the inclusion of ingredients in their macaroons. So a box of these macaroons could end up costing you as much as $7 414.
New York City’s Serendipity 3 restaurant serves a Frozen Chocolate Haute that costs $25 000. Essentially it’s an ice cream that consists of a variety of cocoa blends, milk, whipped cream and truffles. To make it extra special 24-karat gold is added to this frozen desert. In addition the goblet the dessert is served in is made of gold and rows of diamonds. If that’s not enough, the spoon is also made of gold and you get to keep it. In case that wasn’t enough, the dessert comes with an 18-karat bracelet that serves as a souvenir.
There’s only one reason a fruit cake could cost as much as $1.7 million and that’s… diamonds. This cake took approximately 6 months to create and was made by a Japanese pastry chef. It’s covered in marzipan but also 223 diamonds. The pastry chef has, however, kept the ingredients of this sweet masterpiece a secret.
Trump has been a strong advocate for online gaming, so the online gaming industry may not want to dismiss his presidency in a haste. During his candidacy and election campaign, Trump relied on the support of many Las Vegas moguls. With the exception of the MGM’s Jim Murren and Steve Wynn, Trump easily garnered the support of big names in the casino industry in Las Vegas. It was all too easy to support a candidate who would be supportive of the gambling and casino industry. Trump may be indebted to his Las Vegas supporters which could mean a bias decision making when it comes to online gambling. Making America great again could also mean making online gaming great again.
It’s no secret that Trump has been a strong supporter for the legalisation of online gambling. Trump was quoted by Forbes in 2011 with the following statement on online gambling: “it has to happen because many other countries are doing it and like usual the U.S. is just missing out”. While the legalisation of online gambling is not a pressing issue, it wouldn’t be outlandish to assume that Trump would not place himself in opposition to the legalisation of online gambling. While Trump may not actively or voraciously advocate for the legalisation of online gambling while in the White House, he wouldn’t entirely distance himself from the issue either. We can deduce what Trump’s stance might be on online gaming, but it remains unclear what will happen to Trump’s own businesses.
It’s possible that while Trump is in the White House, that online gaming could become a topic of contention in a presidential debate. However, whether the contentious issue will lead to the legalisation of online gambling or not is still under debate. It may, however, be enough for the online gambling industry that the topic is simply just brought out into the open in a presidential debate.
Poker is not just a recreational game played for fun. There are some valuable skills one can learn in poker that can be used in your own personal life. Whether it’s analysing the variables or dealing with failure, poker skills are actually worthwhile life skills. Here are some poker skills you can harness in real life situations.
One thing poker teaches you is that “position is everything”. The best decision-making position in poker is one that gives you access to the most information before you have even made a decision. In
While the best position is one that means you know everything, it is not always possible to have all the information. Like poker, life is often filled with incomplete information. The best way around this is to analyse all the variables – whether it’s based on math or a simple poker tell. Poker teaches how to analyse the variables based on incomplete information so that you can ultimately make the best decision.
You don’t want others to know that you’re desperate for a deal and that’s where the poker face comes in. It’s easy to get angry in poker which may often lead to you being thrown off your game. Poker teaches you to keep your emotions in check even though you may be raging and seeking revenge. A calm head makes for calm decision making in poker and in life.
Discipline. An all-important factor in the game of poker. In poker, discipline is knowing when to end the game before you lose too much. It’s knowing when to “call” and when not to “call” just because you’re impatient. It’s biding one’s time for the absolute right moment. Discipline can be developed in the game
The average Joe or plain Jane won’t be able to afford these excessive tech items. Some of them aren’t really all that unique, aside from how they look and what they’re made of. Still, it’s always nice to fantasize and think about the “what ifs”. You never know, one of us may just strike it lucky on a slot game.
Below is a list 5 insanely priced tech items that only the extremely wealthy could ever afford.
Average Cost: $ 7 900
Yes, a toilet made the list and wait until you find out why… The Numi toilet is said to be a feat of engineering and would appeal to those who value comfort, design, and efficiency in a bathroom. In terms of engineering this toilet maximizes on space and is almost like an artwork in its modern design. Features include: motion-activated cover and seat, bidet functionality, air dryer, deodorizer, heated seat, foot warmer, illuminated panels, music, touch-screen remote, magnetic docking station, advanced flushing technology, and user presets. Numi provides a new bathroom standard with this bathroom marvel.
Cost: $ 49 000
This home workstation is made for the emperors among us. It’s shaped like a scorpion and was designed for performance and productivity optimization. This workstation provides a sense of psychological security while simultaneously blocking out unwanted distractions when you’re trying to work. It’s also space effective and is ergonomic in its simplistic yet still innovative design.
Cost: $ 260 000
It’s not about what this watch can do but rather about how and what it’s made of. The Harry Winston Opus 12 has 607 parts and 80 jewels. It’s also considered to be an investment piece because only 120 of these coveted items were ever made. Included in the build is an 18K white gold case and buckle as well as a black alligator leather strap. It’s the kind of item you lock away in a safe.
Cost: $ 1 000 000
The Luvaglio Laptop doesn’t particularly stand out with any special features you wouldn’t already find in a standard laptop today. So why is the Luvaglio laptop so expensive? The price tag comes from the design and detailing of the appearance of this million dollar machine. The power switch is encrusted with a rare diamond, and this accounts for some of the price tag on this medium-performing laptop. So, why would anyone in their right mind be tempted to buy a medium performance machine at such a hefty price? Well, the Luvaglio laptop can be considered as an investment piece. Firstly, the brand itself screams of exclusivity and secondly there’s the bling factor. So if you’re ever on the market for some exclusivity, the Luvaglio laptop may just be the answer.
Cost: $ 5 000 000
Yes, it’s an Apple product, but that still doesn’t account for a $5 million price tag. But this iPad is most definitely not like the others. This iPad 2 was designed by Stuart Hughes and is encrusted with 12.5 carats of diamonds. But that’s not the only thing that makes this tablet so exorbitantly expensive. The frame is also crafted from the one of the oldest rocks on earth (75-million-year-old ammolite). Still, there’s more to the price tag than shiny and ancient rocks. There are also the bones of a 65-million-year-old-T-Rex that can be found embedded in the ancient rock. So the name quite aptly reflects the $5 million dollar product.
The festive season is almost upon us and what better way to welcome it in than enjoying some of your
