Profiling the Profile Wizard - Part 131 December 2004
So, I Googled Algodec via iwon.com to see what I could find. I found some press releases. They need a proofreader. There is a plague sweeping the country that makes people think that you make a noun plural by adding "'s" at the end. The Wizard Team seems to have been infected by it.
I also found a number of SPAM postings from Thomas & Sarah touting the system. No details, just promises of earning several hundred dollars a day. I don't know what the sites with the posts are supposed to be. One post is in the Agriculture section of science-one.com. Another is in the Activism Peacefire section of activismforum.com.
Next, I searched on the Google site. Even though iwon.com gets its search results from Google, I've noticed the results are sometimes different than those you get directly from Google. I was able to find a slide show that would run in FireFox. The slide show consisted of pictures of IGT machines, just some of the machines you can beat using their system.
Sometimes what you're really looking for is on the second or third page of search results. After scrolling through another dozen or so SPAM postings, I found a blurb on domaingrabber.net. Another passage desperately in need of being proofread by someone who at least attended high school English classes. And, while I think of it, I have no idea what the people who run domaingrabber.net do, but it sounds like they grab domain names and then charge exorbitant amounts of money to businesses that want to buy them.
Getting back to the Wizard Team, according to the page their motto is: You Don't Play...Until It's Ready To Pay! They also say that "the Algodec/Profile Wizard system does not require any expenditure of money to test slot machine's". [sic]
Well, how are you supposed to tell that a machine is ready to pay? Mind meld with it? See if it feels hot? Or cold?
It looks like they're charging only $10 for the information. That's fairly reasonable compared with what some other system sellers charge.
Best of luck in and out of the casinos,
