In my spare time I enjoy a bit of small stakes gambling. But after playing for a while, I tend to get bored with most of the games that are available online. I can only play virtual blackjack or bingo for so long before my eyes start to glaze over.

A few days ago I was visiting an online gambling review site and read about an intriguing new gambling website where you can win money playing games that are based on real financial markets around the world. Now this sounded interesting!

The site was called Golden Boys. I headed on over to to check it out. It was way cool! You can bet on all sorts of stock market games regardless of whether you are an experienced trader or a novice.

One really enjoyable game is “Tick Poker”, a multi-player table game where you match wits with other players trying to predict whether a particular market will be up or down in price after a 20 second period of play. Talk about rapid fire fun!

With Tick Poker you can wager on movement in a wide range of stock markets (the UK 100 Index, the German Stock Market, US Industrial Average, and more). Games are also available for currency futures (EUR/GBP, AUD/USD, etc.) and even commodity futures such as Gold, Platinum and Natural Gas.

I have to say though, my favorite Golden Boys game is the one they call “Up and Down”. As with Tick Poker, there are numerous markets to play – international stock markets, currency futures, and commodity futures. However, in this game you are playing against the house rather than the other players. You select a market and then wager whether it will be up or down at the end of a predetermined period of time that ranges from 1 to 30 minutes. You can also bet on whether the market price will be an even or an odd number. What makes it really interesting is that the prize for a correct wager varies, depending on overall market trends. It may sound complicated but it’s really not as you’ll see when you check it out.

Here’s another cool thing about the Golden Boys site. You can practice any of their games for free using Virtual Currency (VC for short) rather than real money. Then, once you are ready to begin playing “for real”, you will have become very comfortable with game play.

Please note that players must be 18 years of age or older and located in an eligible country.

Why not check it out for yourself? With the Golden Boys you can be a winner regardless of the ups and downs of the financial markets.
