Kenny Rogers

8/29/2020. Kenny Ray Rogers. I Love and miss you. Kenny Rogers, Jr.

 Welcome To Kenny Rogers Gambling

by Kenny Rogers Jr

Kenny Rogers Sportsbook Poker Slots

Kenny Ray Rogers, I Love and miss you 

Kenny Rogers, Jr

My father was Ray Rogers.

My name is Kenny Rogers, Jr just like your son.

Kenneth Ray Rogers (August 21, 1938 – March 20, 2020) was an American singer, songwriter, actor, record producer, and entrepreneur. He was elected to the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2013. Rogers was particularly popular with country audiences but also charted more than 120 hit singles across various music genres, and topped the country and pop album charts for more than 200 individual weeks in the United States alone. He sold over 100 million records worldwide during his lifetime, making him one of the best-selling music artists of all time. His fame and career spanned multiple genres: jazz, folk, pop, rock, and country. He remade his career, and was one of the most successful cross-over artists of all time.

In the late 1950s, Rogers began his recording career with the Houston-based group the Scholars, who first released "The Poor Little Doggie". After some solo releases including 1958's "That Crazy Feeling", Rogers then joined a group with the jazz singer Bobby Doyle. In 1966 he became a member of the folk ensemble the New Christy Minstrels, playing double bass and bass guitar as well as singing. In 1967, he and several members of the New Christy Minstrels left to found the group the First Edition, with whom he scored his first major hit, "Just Dropped In (To See What Condition My Condition Was In)", a psychedelic rock song which peaked at number five on the Billboard charts. As Rogers took an increased leadership role in the First Edition, and following the success of 1969's "Ruby, Don't Take Your Love to Town", the band gradually changed styles to a more country feel. The band broke up in 1975–1976, and Rogers embarked on a long and successful solo career, which included several successful collaborations, including duets with singers Dolly Parton and Sheena Easton, and a songwriting partnership with Lionel Richie. His signature song, 1978's "The Gambler", was a cross-over hit that won him a Grammy Award in 1980 and was selected in 2018 for preservation in the National Recording Registry by the Library of Congress. He would develop the Gambler persona into a character for a successful series of television films starting with 1980's Emmy-nominated Kenny Rogers as The Gambler.

Rogers' albums The Gambler and Kenny were featured in the poll of "The 200 Most Influential Country Albums Ever". He was voted the "Favorite Singer of All Time" in a 1986 joint poll by readers of both USA Today and People. He received numerous awards such as the AMAsGrammysACMs and CMAs, as well as a lifetime achievement award for a career spanning six decades in 2003. Later success included the 2006 album release, Water & Bridges, an across the board hit, that hit the Top 5 in the Billboard Country Albums sales charts, also charting in the Top 15 of the Billboard 200. The first single from the album, "I Can't Unlove You", was also a sizable chart hit. Remaining a popular entertainer around the world, he continued to tour regularly until his retirement in 2017.

Rogers had acting roles in movies and television shows, including the title roles in Kenny Rogers as The Gambler and the MacShayne series for The NBC Mystery Movie, and the 1982 feature film Six Pack. He was a co-founder of the restaurant chain Kenny Rogers Roasters in collaboration with former Kentucky Fried Chicken CEO John Y. Brown Jr. Although the stores closed in the United States, they are still a fixture in Asia.

7/05/19. A short history of Poker

                                 Welcome to Kenny Rogers Gambling


Chris Moneymaker
Only a few years after tournament-play was first launched online, Christopher Bryan Moneymaker earned entry into the 2003 World Series of Poker Main Event via a satellite tournament organized by Poker Stars. Having won the WSOP crown, the media exploited the amateur-beats-pros story in combination with his incredibly appropriate last name, and turbo-charged the interest of general public in online poker. 

There is no general agreement as to how this hugely popular casino game came into existence. The further back we try to trace it, the most difficult it gets, mainly due to a lack of written records.
Some claim that the game we today know as poker originated from As-Nas, a card game played in Persia as far back as the 17th century. Using a 25-card pack with 5 suits, As-Nas was played very similarly to poker only without flushes and straights. Paying hands included Full, Three-of-a-Kind, and Pairs, and the game involved a round of betting based on 5 cards each of the players were dealt. They were allowed to place a bet after seeing their cards or bet blind, and either call, raise or fold. And bluff while doing it! The only issue with this theory, apart from the aforementioned missing written sources, is that there is no evidence as to how the game of As-Nas could have travelled to other parts of the world.

From Europe to America and Back

 Other historians believe that a true poker ancestor is a 16th-century Spanish game Primero, which some 100 years later was translated into Poque in France and Pochen in Germany. The game featured three cards dealt to each player and involved bluffing and betting. French colonists brought Poque to North America, where the first recorded mention dates back to 1829 New Orleans. A game featuring a 20-card deck was played by four players who would bet on whose hand was the most valuable. From there, it spread by Mississippi riverboats towards the west and could be found in saloons across the country during the Wild West period.
During the late 19th century, the US minister to Great Britain shared the game at Queen Victoria’s court. While trying to teach his hosts how to play poker, General Schenck also produced a written guide to help them learn. Following this first entry into Europe, it took several decades and the influence of American soldiers participating in World War I to achieve more widespread acceptance of poker among the European players.

The Game Continues to Evolve

Poker kept developing to introduce five-card draw, seven-card stud and Texas Hold’em, the first variant to use community cards. Tournament play was launched in American Casinos with the start of the World Series of Poker in 1970. It all began when Benny Binion, an infamous Las Vegas gambler and casino boss, invited several well-known poker players to participate in a tournament which took place in the Horseshoe Casino. Later on the WSOP launched a tournament "circuit" across the USA, and today it boasts the title of the largest and longest-running gaming event in the world.
Thanks to the development of the Internet, this increasingly popular game became accessible outside of land-based casinos. Online poker was made available in the mid-1990s, at the beginning played for free, and the first online poker room, Planet Poker, appeared in 1998. This pioneer was soon overtaken by other gaming venues, and in September 2009 Poker Spot was the first online poker room to offer tournaments. Although Poker Spot went under due to issues with collecting players’ deposits from its payments processing firm, the incident didn’t discourage other providers from offering tournaments. Collection issues were solved largely thanks to e-cash, primarily Neteller, which allowed players to make deposits without having to use credit cards and collect their money faster.
The Exciting World of Online Poker
Online Poker not only enables fans to enjoy the game from the comfort of their own homes, but it also provides numerous game varieties and betting-range options to suit beginners, low rollers and high rollers. Or even to practice for free! Today you can launch an instant game which pays according to your own hand only, or enter a poker room and test your skills against those of other players. While the development of technology enhances the online experience on daily basis, and smartphones and tablets facilitate on-the-go gaming, poker continues to attract more and more players from all corners the world. If you’re not one of them yet, visit Intertops and see for yourself why millions choose to take a seat at a poker table every single day.

May the force be with you.
Good luck.

7/06/19. Famous Poker Players

Welcome to Kenny Rogers Gambling Blog 


The Gambler

How's everybody doing? Hope you had a great work week!

Today we discuss the Famous Poker Players
 If you’re a poker fan, you must have read about successful world-famous players, and maybe even watched them in action via televised events or indeed live, and thought: “Perhaps one day this will be me?” 
This is a phenomenon particular to poker.  There are no professional slots players to emulate.  Not even professional video poker players who inspire us.  It is only poker pros we look up to with such adulation.
Whether it’s a question of accomplishment, fame or money, surely we’ve all had such a dream, and some of us still do. And why not? When you learn about how these men and women got to become our idols, it’s clear that background, education, financial muscle or age have little to do with making it to the top in the world of poker. So let’s have a look at arguably the most fascinating poker players since the early days of this exciting casino game. 

Johnny Moss

Johnny Moss, born in 1907, was the winner of the very first World Series of Poker (WSOP) Main Event which took place in 1970. Growing up in Dallas, Texas, Moss was taught how to cheat at games as a young boy. However, instead of pulling tricks on unsuspecting opponents, he used his knowledge to ensure games were played fairly while working in a local saloon during his teenage years. Watching poker players play presented a great opportunity to learn a whole lot about strategy. In 1949, Johnny Moss played in a poker marathon organized by the father of WSOP, Benny Binion. He faced Nick the Greek for five long months, who then came out with what is now considered to be one of the most famous poker quotes ever:  "Mr. Moss, I have to let you go." Moss was the winner of WSOP Main Events in 1970, 1971, and 1974, picking up 9 WSOP bracelets during the course of his poker career.

Amarillo Slim Preston

When it was launched, not many people were even aware that the WSOP was taking place. It was Thomas Austin Preston, known as Amarillo Slim, who first brought the tournament to the attention of the general public. Having won the 1972 Main Event, he went on a publicity tour, appeared on several talk shows, and even had a small part in the 1974 movie California Split by Robert Altman. Amarillo Slim was not only a five-time winner of WSOP events, but also known for having played poker with presidents Lyndon B. Johnson and Richard Nixon, the infamous Pablo Escobar and Hustler publisher Larry Flynt.

Doyle Brunson

Having played poker professionally for over 50 years, Doyle Brunson could easily claim poker was his life, even if he was originally hoping to become a professional basketball player. A two-time winner of WSOP Main Event (1976 and 1977) who boasts 10 coveted bracelets, Mr. Doyle was voted the most influential force in the world of poker by Bluff Magazine in 2006. This American was the first to earn more than $1 million in tournament winnings, and the first to claim both the WSOP Main Event champion and a World Poker Tour title.

Chris Moneymaker

Only a few years after tournament-play was first launched online, Christopher Bryan Moneymaker earned entry into the 2003 World Series of Poker Main Event via a satellite tournament organized by Poker Stars. Having won the WSOP crown, the media exploited the amateur-beats-pros story in combination with his incredibly appropriate last name, and turbo-charged the interest of general public in online poker. 

Vanessa Rousso

Vanessa Ashley Rousso, a professional American poker player born in 1983, is one of the most successful ladies in the poker world. Apparently a player since the tender age of five, Miss Rousso first took part in a serious poker tournament play during the summer break from law school, in which, by the way, she was in the top 5% of her class. She didn’t finish her studies, but after earning more than $3 million in tournament winnings by the age of 30, we can hardly imagine she has any regrets.

Phil Ivey

Known as the Tiger Woods of Poker, Phillip Dennis Ivey Jr. is an American professional poker player and the proud owner of 10 WSOP bracelets. This achievement only took him 14 years - faster than anybody else in history! Ivey also holds one World Poker Tour title, having sat at nine World Poker Tour final tables, and was named Poker Player of the Year by All In Magazine in 2005 and 2009. He is considered to be one of the best all-round players in the world.

Phil Hellmuth Jr.

Phillip Jerome Hellmuth Jr. is another American player who holds a record in the number of WSOP bracelets won – 14! This short-tempered "poker brat" also traded a university diploma for the career of a professional poker player, a decision which has proven to be exceedingly lucrative. With close to $21 million in live tournament winnings, he ranks 8th on the all-time money list. In 1989, at the age of 24, Hellmuth became the youngest player to win WSOP Main Event, though he no longer holds this title.

Viktor Blom

This Swedish online poker player was first introduced to the game at the age of 14 by his older brother. Having then taught his friends, and subsequently organized poker games in school, Blom made his first deposit at an online poker site just a year later. He achieved several notable wins only to then lose it all, and changing his online poker name to Isildur1 in 2009, he started playing high-stakes poker against well-known professionals such as the above-mentioned Phil Ivey, Tom Dwan, Brian Townsend and others. In 2009, Blom actually played 9 tables at once against Patrik Antonius, Ivey and Dwan, after which Antonius called the mysterious Swede “extremely dangerous”, owing to him constantly forcing his opponents to make difficult decisions.

Daniel Negreanu

Daniel Negreanu, a Canadian professional poker player, boasts the title of the biggest live-tournament poker winner of all time. Having won 6 SWOP bracelets and 2 WPT championship titles, Negreanu has managed to accumulate more than $32 million in prize money during his career. This high-school drop-out is well known for his philanthropy. He frequently appears in various charity events and is the founder of the annual "Big Swing" charity golf event, played by professional poker players paired with celebrities.

Tom Dwan

Known under the screen name "durrrr", Thomas Dwan Jr started playing poker online with a $50 bankroll. While he initially focused on sit-and-go tournaments, he later switched to multiplayer games and then to heads-up games. Dwan was only 19 when he collected cash in his first live tournament, and having won more than $1.1 million during Full Tilt Poker's Million Dollar Cash Game, he holds the record for the largest pot won in a televised game.

9/01/20. Newest Games. Achilles Deluxe Slot.

                     Welcome To Kenny Rogers Gambling

                            by Kenny Rogers

Kenny Rogers Sportsbook Poker Slots

Cherry Jackpot is ready to take you on a trip all the way back to Ancient Greece in the new Achilles Deluxe slot game. Join us as we visit the place where gods walked among men and women, where heroes and legends were born and where epic tales were told.

Achilles Deluxe is the sequel to the ever popular and original Achilles slot, where you will truly bask in riches. What kind of ending will you bring to this epic tale? This brand new online slot is themed around the famous Trojan War, a conflict featured prominently in Homer’s Iliad. The war originated from a conflict between the Olympian gods. It quickly escalated into a 10-year long siege of Troy in the mortal realm. Many heroes lost their lives during the conflict, including the slot’s title character, Achilles. A demigod who only had one vulnerable point, Achilles was killed after taking an arrow to his heel (hence the term, Achilles heel).

After many unsuccessful attempts, the Greeks came up with one final plan to win the war. Faking a retreat, they left a gigantic wooden horse to ask for Athena's forgiveness. The Trojans fell for the ruse and took the horse into the city as a spoil. As it turned out, the wooden statue actually had Greece’s strongest warriors. During the night, Greece’s men got out of the trap and slaughtered the Trojans to win the war.

The Achilles Deluxe game is available at Cherry Jackpot in our Mobile Casino or on Download and Instant Play.

Players who enjoy the Achilles Deluxe slot game recommend: Achilles, Caesar's Empire, Cleopatra's Gold and Wu Zetian

You don’t have to worry, as we have no Trojan Horses here. Instead, you will be able to score wins that will match Troy’s riches! Here are some of the Achilles Deluxe online slot features:

Achilles Deluxe screenshot

Gain your legend status in Achilles Deluxe

  • Random jackpots
  • Up to 25 free games with tripled winnings
  • Top award of 40,000x your bet

Now that you know what to expect, it’s time to grab your shield and spear, put on your helmet and join the battle. Achilles Deluxe has 20 fixed paylines and 5 reels. Its incredible free games feature is what sets this slot apart from the others.

Keep an eye on the scatter “Achilles Deluxe” symbol and the Shield wild symbol, which will substitute for all other symbols except the scatter. Line up to three scatters to trigger the free games feature. You will get 10 free spins, during which all winnings are doubled!

But that’s just the beginning. Line up at least three wild symbols to trigger the unique Wild Free Games feature. You will pick one option to reveal 15, 20 or 25 free spins. During these rounds all winnings will be tripled! And that’s not all, as the Wild and the highest paying symbol will replace all scatter symbols on the reels. In other words, Achilles Deluxe will pay three times the prize and offer you a better chance of winning. Now this is far from being a Greek Gift - it is the real thing! This slot has no Achilles heel, after all.

Come to Cherry Jackpot today and join us in this battle for riches!

5 Top Game Engines

Unreal Engine

Unreal Engine is a top game engine developed by Epic Games since 1998. The latest engine is Unreal Engine 4 (UE4).

Unreal Engine is well-documented and easy-to-use. You can use it to develop any type of game — from console to mobile (including Android and iOS). It’s even used in industries beyond game development, including automotive.

This makes it a top game engine for beginners and experts alike. That’s why everyone from AAA game developers to indie studios uses Unreal Engine.

For example, Unreal Engine is used in Epic Games’ biggest games, including Fortnite: Save the World. It’s also been used by countless other studios for games like Mortal Kombat (mobile).


Unity is a top game engine developed by Unity technologies since 2005.

Unity makes game development more accessible, with notable screen reader support. You can use Unity to develop games across platforms. It was originally launched for MacOS, but now supports 25+ platforms. Like Unreal Engine, Unity is now used in industries beyond game development, including architecture.

This makes it a top game engine, especially among cross-platform teams. You can use it to develop any type of game. It has a strong reputation for mobile game development on Android.

For example, Unity is used for mobile, PC, console, web, and AR/VR games. These include Cuphead and Rick and Morty: Virtual Rick-ality.  

Amazon Lumberyard

Amazon Lumberyard is a top game engine developed by Amazon since 2016. It was licensed and reworked from CryEngine (see below).

Lumberyard is a free, cross-platform engine. You can use it with AWS to build or host your game on Amazon’s servers. It’s easy to get started with, which makes it accessible to start-ups or indie studios, in addition to AAA game development studios.

Lumberyard is used by many studios, including Amazon Game Studios. For example, Lumberyard is used in New World.


CryEngine is a top game engine developed by CryTek since 2002. The latest engine is CryEngine V.

CryEngine is a cross-platform engine. You can use it to create photorealistic first-person games, especially shooters. CryEngine is used in all games from CryTek, as well as other studios. As mentioned above, CryEngine was licensed and reworked to create Amazon Lumberyard.

For example, CryEngine is used in Hunt: Showdown from CryTek, as well as Kingdom Come: Deliverance from Warhorse Studios.

[Case Study] Why CryTek Uses Helix Core >>


Their Own Game Engine

Another top game engine used by studios is their own video game engine.

There are many game development studios who make their own game engines. In most cases, studios who make their own game engines use them exclusively. In some cases, studios will use their own engines for some projects — and utilize other engines like Unreal for other projects.

For example, Nintendo uses their own video game engine. But Nintendo Switch supports Unreal Engine and Unity to allow third-party developers to port their games over.

So, Which Is the Best Video Game Engine?

Which is the best video game engine for your team? That depends on your studio and project.

In some cases, the best video game engine for your team might be one of the top engines listed above:

  • Unreal Engine
  • Unity
  • Amazon Lumberyard
  • CryEngine

Or, the right game engine might be one you build yourself.

How to Use Game Engines With Version Control

Your game engine is an important part of your game development toolset. And it should work seamlessly with your other game development tools, including version control.

Version control is a staple of game development teams. And most game development teams — including 19 of the top 20 AAA game development studios — use Helix Core, version control from Perforce.
