Description of the gambling industry in the United States

About rules

Each state is subject to its legal regulations. In this case, gambling industry brings good income to the owners of gambling houses. Just about every person in the United States spends two hundred dollars for purchasing a lottery every year.

Even such large investors as pension fund invest their shares to the gambling industry.

About cons

There are always two sides of the coin. The downside here is the fact that in the US there are restrictions on bank loans to start their own business.

Moreover, there is a tacit agreement between all the owners of gambling establishments in the US. Not long ago, the owners of all establishments altogether excluded a tradition of free drinks to clients. US casino owners must obtain a special license. The document is difficult to obtain the United States. There are three types of license:

  • Limited, it gives the right to place gambling tables and slot machines, and their number should not exceed fifteen pieces;
  • Unlimited, it does not establish sanctions;
  • Special, necessary for those who develop business in bars, entertainment places, that is, it is necessary when the place is the property of the owner of gambling houses.

Not only equipment but also employees and game manufacturers are the subject of licensing.

Separately about California

The first attempt to legalize the game here happened in 1984. California authorities have approved the legal document under which prosecutors had to follow the cardrooms. Next regulatory came only in 1997, its control was more rigid.  In 2000, California gambling cafes officially had the right to work. Residents of the state received the right to inspect the activities of gambling clubs on the basis of contract. They were concluded between the Indians and the authorities. The Indians are responsible for the operation of clubs, gambling cafes in California, and the government controls the overall law and order of gambling.

It is important to choose the optimal configuration for your PC in order for its system requirements to respond consistently to any planned gaming software.  Owner of the gaming establishment has to find the middle ground – inexpensive computer which at the same time has to meet the optimal system requirements for computer software.

Each seller of any computer shop will tell you with great certainty that the average gaming PC that meets systems requirements of the most popular games will cost around $1000. But having researched in detail the information on the Internet and having read the tests from independent experts, we come to the conclusion that the gaming PC can be bought for no more than $600.

It is very difficult to choose a game processor without the knowledge. But its all relative and only comparing models by reading reviews you can make the right decision.

Gaming processor

When opening an Internet cafe, the question of equipment selection, namely computers, raises sharply. No matter what brand is mouse, keyboard, monitor, because the key role is played by the processor. Lacking the information it is difficult to choose a powerful processor for gaming computer among existing diversity.

 

What you should pay attention to

When you review processors for gaming computers, you should pay special attention to the following features:

  • The number of cores. 10 years ago the first 4-core processors appeared and it was quite enough for games of that years. But progress does not stand still and today’s market presents processors with 6, 8, and even 10 cores. They believe that the more cores the better, but it is not always true. There are programs that can not distribute the load across multiple cores, so they work better on CPUs with two cores but with higher clock frequency.
  • The most popular are AMD and Intel models. Generally the clock frequency of these processors is in the range of 2.5 – 4 GHz. It is quite enough for comfortable operation and maximum performance.
  • In other words, it is a system that is responsible for cooling the CPU, it indicates how cool is its maximum load. The smaller is the number, the less is the heat.
  • Any processor has a built-in cache size. There are four cache levels. If we compare two processors Core i7 and Core i5, in the first case the amount of cache is 8 MB, while the second is 6 MB. Typically, this difference of 2 MB does not affect the games operation.

 

Which processor to prefer

Perfect processors for gaming computer are from Intel and AMD brands. Budget options such as FX-4000, Pentium, Celeron will be useful for home desktop, but not the gaming one.

For a review of gaming computers we selected brands Intel and AMD.

AMD

Special preference in this brand is given to series FX, they are considered to be the top-end chips for AMZ +. If necessary they are very easy to disperse, there is an automatic overclocking technology (Turbo Core). There are models with 4 to 8 cores.
There is also an A series. It refers to the so-called middle class, where there are processors with two and four cores, but they are featured with more powerful graphics that dismisses purchasing of an additional graphics card.

Intel

Let’s consider three series:

  1. Middle performance: LGA1150 platform.
  2. The top platform LGA2011-v3, these are the processors with 6 and 8 cores, but they do not have integrated graphics. That is, you must also purchase an additional graphics card.
  3. It supports automatic overclocking technology, a relatively new platform.

 

Choosing the processor for gaming computer from offered diversity can be achieved by reading literature, view reviews of the specific model and comparing one with another.

 

What is VPN and how it works

VPN is a general definition of network or connection that is produced inside or on top of an existing network, for example, the Internet. It is a protected network inside of unprotected one.

VPN – is a tunnel from clients VPN that is installed on a particular device, for example, and the VPN server. Inside this tunnel there is a protection, full encryption and modification of the data that have been used on this device.
It is used for the purpose of personal safety (see below), as well as if access is denied by provider. In this case, the private usage of a VPN connection helps. Data is encrypted. But you should remember that illegal sites are prohibited not for no reason.

Why do you need it

Why do you need VPN service in the gaming cafe? To date, almost all gambling clubs use opened Wi-Fi network. The number of devices used to connect to the network is growing constantly.
