Nanny Mania 2 – Hollywood Stars Also Need the Service!

Recently game developers have released the new installment of Nanny Mania series. This time Emma will have a larger family, which means more tasks – and more fun for you! Of course, all the addictions of the first part are preserved!

A vacation for the Super Nanny? Sure! Just a couple more chores to do!

After successfully bringing the house of her previous masters to complete order Emma decided to give herself a break from all the hard work… But she just couldn’t stand seeing her idol Sofia Ashford, the superstar, being called the worst mother ever – so she ventured to Hollywood to offer her services. Unexpectedly for the mother, Emma was able to stay for the next day. And the next. And… Actually, she proved herself to be the best nanny ever (did you doubt that) and moved watched the family grow as Sydney went out of the crib, but the twins have replaced her there. More and more family members, larger and larger houses – the Super Nanny can handle everything. Can’t she?

The game mechanics is basically the same as in the first part – you have a house full of people and messes they create, and your task is to clean everything up before time runs out. The messes are of different types and require different steps to clean. Simple messes like an open cupboard or knocked down lamp require just a single click, while other will take more to complete. For example, the laundry needs to be taken first to the washer, then to the dryer and only then to one of the dressers. The same for the babies’ needs and cooking – several steps, each taking time.

Timing and planning ahead is very important in the game. For example, you’ll need to start the laundry first thing in a level in order to complete it in perfect time and get a bonus. Plus there are a number of possible chains that can give you additional time, like collecting all the trash and putting it to the bin in one go, or vacuuming all the dust at once. There are also some things for which you might get a time penalty, like leaving a baby hungry for too long or letting the papparazis spy on the house inhabitants. What is also great here is that you can (and should) queue the actions ahead, and the queue length is unlimited. This way you’ll be able to make sure your Nanny doesn’t stop waiting for your direction and losing precious time. And if, for example, you need to do something urgently, you can at any moment cancel the whole queue with a single right-click, and then create the new, better planned queue.

Tip: don’t forget to include a cup of coffee for Emma to the queue – and get a speed boost.

Every several levels you’ll be able to purchase upgrades for the house, like new cleaning means or better technical options. That makes your life a bit easier, and, as the houses become larger, children grow up and new family members appear, that will be very much appreciated!

So, will you prove you can handle all the mess? The challenge begins in Nanny Mania 2!

How to Win at Online Slots Games

Being a winning slot machine player is impossible. All slot machines are specifically designed in order to give the house a long term edge, so the house will always come out ahead if you play long enough. The only real way to counteract the house edge on slot machine games is to play a game with a really big jackpot, bet the max every time you play, and hope that you hit the jackpot. Then when you do hit the really big jackpot, guess what you do next? Stop playing that game.

Don’t get me wrong. I’m not saying that you shouldn’t play slot machines. In fact, I think slot games, especially the really good ones, are a lot of fun. But you want to keep in the forefront of your mind that mathematically, what you’re doing when you’re playing a slot machine on a long term basis is paying for entertainment. You can calculate how much you’re paying for that entertainment by multiplying the house edge times your average bet times your number of spins per hour.

For example, if you’re playing a slot game with a payout of 95%, then the house edge is 5%. (The casino keeps 5% of every bet you make long term.) And if you’re average bet is $3, then you’re going to pay an average of 15 cents per spin to the house. (5% times $3.) Assuming you’re making 500 spins per hour, that game costs you $75/hour to play, which may or may not be a reasonable price for you entertainment. That depends on your bankroll.

Something else to factor into your calculation is how much the perks and bonuses you’re getting back from the casino are worth. If you’re playing in a land-based casino where you’re getting free drinks while you play, then you can subtract the cost of those drinks from you’re hourly cost. (Or you can add the cost of those drinks to the value of the entertainment you’re receiving–it’s just a matter of perspective.) My recommendation is to drink top-shelf liquor and premium beers in order to maximize the entertainment value you’re receiving. A Heineken can cost $4 a bottle in a nice restaurant. Drink two Heinekens an hour, and you’ve just lowered what it costs you to play each hour from $75 to $68.

Slot clubs also give back a percentage of your losses each hour, so definitely be sure you join the casino’s slot club and ALWAYS use your card to track your play. There’s absolutely no reason not to do this. Casinos also reward their larger slot players with comps like meals, show tickets, and free rooms, which all add up to reduce the amount of money you’re spending each hour that you’re playing on their machine.

So how to be a winning slot machine player? I’d sum it up by saying know how much it’s costing you to play each spin and each hour, take advantage of all the comps and the perks, and go for the big progressive jackpot.
