So you want it free, eh? Well, the best things in the world are supposed to be free and I guess that includes gambling. There is nothing more exciting than the rush of blood in your head and body when you experience winning a straight streak but I bet, the excitement would double once you indulge on free gambling?
Is there such a thing as free gambling? Yes, there is. Before, free gambling does not exist because you should show the other players that you have the money to gamble before the games could commence. But now, thanks to invention of internet and computers, free gambling now exists. First things first, any person below 18 years old are not allowed to gamble neither free gambling nor paid one. Even though the gambling is held in the virtual world, there are still rules and regulation that needs to be observed properly.
In free gambling in the internet, one could choose from the different types of game available in the internet. The only drawback here is that the features for free gambling are often limited because it is free. In order to access special features in that gambling site, one could register and then pay a certain amount. But if you are just a beginner in the world of internet gambling, then it would be advisable to join free gambling sites. This is because gambling skills are needed to be practiced. Through these free sites, a person could exercise his skills in gambling and at the same time learn from his mistakes. After a lot of practice and determination, in time, one could be ready to be a professional gambler with wits and brains to boot to other competitors.
Here are some examples of free gambling sites that would surely satisfy the gambler side of every person. First stop is Pacific Poker. Pacific poker is a type of free gambling site that indulges the player with the game of poker. Next stop is Astro Bingo which is a free gambling haven for bingo lovers. Just for signing in their site, they would give you a free £5 sign up bonus. Another one is 888 Casino which offers free gambling games particularly casino games or games found in casinos. These include free poker games, craps, keno, roulette, blackjack and slots. If you are tired from all that usual stuff then Virgin games is probably the best free gambling site for you. It offers “life-changing” prizes at stake in every play that you game. What are these “life-changing” prices? Well, I guess that you just have to visit their site to find out. Free gambling games that are available in this site includes Winner Takes All, The Price is Right, Wheel of Fortune and even the favorite game of the family, Monopoly. Other games that could be found in free gambling sites are horse-racing bets, reality TV shows, world cups, Saturday matches and the weather. Name it and everything is present in free gambling.
Free gambling is fun but it could sometimes be addictive. For a person that is just new in gambling, take your time to learn and practice but do not let free gambling consume you. Try to balance your life and view free gambling as an alternative and fun way to live life rather than living your life for the sake of free gambling.

Today there is much talk about how young adults are financially illiterate as if financial literacy were adequate to build wealth. Millions of people have read one of the best financial literacy books out there “Rich Dad,Poor Dad” yet there is a loss of translation somewhere between the sound principles of financial literacy and their utility in building wealth. Somewhere, there still is a bridge to building wealth that books such as “Rich Dad, Poor Dad” have failed to cross. This bridge is one of not financial literacy, but one of wealth literacy. If I were a university President, I would ensure that my business program offered the following courses:
(1) How to Leverage Money
(2) The Four Pillars of Wealth
(3) How to Invest Money
(4) Gold and Precious Metals
(5) How to Leverage Time
(6) Debunking Widespread Investment Myths; and
There would be several more lessons that I would provide after this basic curriculum was completed, including:
(1) The Connection Between Politics and Investing; and
(2) Leveraging Technology to Build Wealth
With an adequate foundation of knowledge in all these courses, a young adult would be prepared to build wealth without so much trial and error, struggle, or outright failure. Instead, no level of traditional institutions of education teach such courses and instead remain mired in curriculums skewed towards theory and not applicability such as statistics, economics 101, marketing and finance. If you think about it, even at the Master level, none of these traditional business or financial literacy courses will really teach any student how to build wealth. This is precisely the reason why young adults must seek an entirely different foundation in order to understand how to truly build wealth.
Various surveys that I have stumbled across that assess the financial literacy of young adults are inadequately structured because they focus too much on traditional concepts such as stocks, options, real estate, and so on versus granting an assessment on whether young adults are knowledgeable about any concepts necessary to build wealth. Being “financially” literate versus being “wealth” literate are two entirely different concepts. I believe that one can be financially literate while not being wealth literate.
The difference between financial literacy courses and wealth literacy courses is this. Financial literacy courses focus on topics such as budgeting, basic understanding of investing concepts, funding retirement accounts and so on – concepts that young adults rarely consider but still not concepts that will help them build wealth. Financial literacy courses teach young adults what they need to do to build wealth but grants them none of the tools they will actually need to successfully build wealth. Furthermore, they never inform them on actionable steps to build wealth other than common sense such as learn how to invest, max out your 401 (k) contributions and so on.
For example, if one was a basketball player, the comparable level of a financial literacy course would be to tell a power forward that he needs a good array of post-up moves close to the basket, a sweet outside shot to make opponents respect his range, a quick first step to create off the dribble and a solid defensive game so that opponents can not exploit him for being a one-dimensional player. But after telling the power forward that, there would be no further explanation but a wish of “good luck” and a pat on the back. A wealth literacy course would actually teach the athlete specifically what he would need to do to achieve success in each area of his game that would make him a premier athlete.
Telling young adults what they need to do will have little impact on improving their quality of life or making a successful transition from young adults into financially independent adults. Providing a toolkit for how to do so is far more important. To this end, seeking courses that teach wealth literacy instead of financial literacy to young adults is much more important.
Can you imagine a scenario where your students reach their mid-thirties and the majority of them are buried in student debt? This is a reality for many young adults today. This scenario can be avoided just by adding a practical financial literacy curriculum to your instruction. By doing so you will have provided your students the tools necessary to create a brighter future.
Most high school teachers understand the importance of providing a practical financial literacy curriculum for their students. Unfortunately, many teachers lack the time and money to teach this vital life skill. The need for students to be financially prepared is of significant importance before they step on a college campus or move out on their own. So that your students are prepared for the financial real world, implement the simple tips below. It will help your students avoid financial pitfalls and succeed financially.
1. Relate money to lifestyle. Most young adults are not motivated by having a large bank account. It’s what money provides them that gives them the encouragement to learn money management skills. It’s the experiences they want to have, places they want to travel, the people they want to help and getting the toys they dream about that motivate them to learn about money.
Locate financial literacy curriculum that will help your students relate money to their personal life. You will find the majority of students do want to receive financial literacy training and they pay close attention to financial literacy instruction when the message matches their personal goals.
2. Develop a savings plan. Give your students a head start by helping them develop a savings plan (aka budget). As a part of your financial literacy curriculum, have them manage their own finances to create a working budget. For teenagers living at home, encourage them to set aside fourty percent for long-term savings. This not only will get them started building a nest egg but will help them develop a good savings habit.
An essential element to include in your financial literacy training is to help them understand the difference between a ‘need’ and a ‘want’. Wanting a $5 dollar cup of coffee everyday adds up to over $1800 per year. This essential financial education training lesson will help to counteract the years of ‘buy, buy, buy’ advertisements they are exposed to.
3. Open Accounts. Have your students participate in a real world financial education activities that will ensure their secure future. Suggest that your students go with their parents to open their savings and checking account. This is a great way to help the parents be more active in the students schooling.
4. Invest early and consistently. When teaching a practical financial literacy curriculum one of the most important math lessons you can teach is the power of ‘compounding interest’. This allows your students to make money off the initial investment plus all the money the money that the investment already retuned. In your financial literacy curriculum, show them how fast a small investment can add up. Just an $83 investment made each month could mean over a million dollars in their account when they are in their fifties. Providing your students these practical financial lessons will give them an advantage that most people won’t have.
Financial education is an important part of your student’s future success. With a practical financial literacy curriculum they will avoid the most common financial mistakes, be able to enjoy life more and will be well on their way to securing their financial future.
