Top 6 Destiny Tips That Every Player Should Know

Published

on

Destiny is a much simpler game to play when compared to other games. However, you need to understand how to play it if you want to be an expert because there are lots of strategies, currencies, and numbers that can easily get your head around. If you are wondering about the best way of playing, here are a few tips to enjoy this game to the fullest.

Avoid going it alone

The best way for you to enjoy Destiny is by playing it will friends. Having friends who have your back and that you can chat with is more fun than playing this game alone. If you desire a more co-operative challenge, then you can go for a raid where six players face the toughest challenges that this game offers. If you desire competition, then crucible is the ideal place that can be played with teams of four. By creating or joining a clan, you will get ahead more quickly and you will earn more experience and skills when you play with your clan mates.

Take on a raid

Raids are some of the best experiences that you will have when playing Destiny. With raids, you can play with the fire team, handle tricky puzzles, and bosses for you to earn great rewards. With Destiny 2, the raid will take you to The Leviathan, which is a big and opulent that challenges the Guardians who defeated Ghaul. Raids are very enjoyable challenges that you can take on with Destiny.

Know how to level up

Currently, Destiny 2 has a maximum level of 20 and you can achieve this quickly by playing frequently to get experience. Keep in mind that your player level will not offer much when it comes to boosting damage and defense and it is the power level that does much of the heavy lifting. The power level usually goes up to about 305 and this is established by the average level of all armor and guns. You can boost your power level by investing in Destiny activities Strikes and Crucible matches and Public Events. The best Destiny boosting strategy for a gun that is stuck on a lower level is infusing it with a more powerful gear.

Go on patrol

Destiny 2 has a lot of activities that you can engage in apart from the main campaign missions. There are lots of activities that you can find on the patrol areas. These exploration zones have been put into the Titan, Lo, Nessus, and the Earth’s European Dead Zone. Every area is packed with lots of activities to engage in including public events for you to take part in, quests for alien weaponry, lost sectors for you to discover, and adventure missions to undertake.

Know the game’s schedule

Bungie keeps making an effort of being more transparent and clearer with Destiny’s weekly schedule by sharing information weeks in advance. This is important because it enables you to be updated on the schedule week to week of Destiny. For example, the game resets every Tuesday and your weekly activities will be available. You will get new Flashpoint for you to take on, new milestones to be achieved, and a novel Nightfall raid that challenges you.

Become friends with Xur

Xur is the seller that appears every Friday in the Destiny’s patrol regions. You may find him in a cave or up a tree but you can easily find him because he has a marker. Xur is special because every week he sells exotic items like an armor piece and gun for Warlock, Hunter or Titan.

Destiny is an enjoyable and challenging game that you will relish in. The above tips will come in handy whether you are a beginner or a veteran. Keep in mind that you can only master this game by playing it frequently and practicing.

What is a Sweepstakes Casino?

Published

on

By

Sweepstakes casinos are websites where you can play the top casino-style games without making any purchases. In other words, they’re 100% free-to-play, which distinguishes them from traditional gaming sites. The fact that sweepstakes casinos don’t require payments also makes them widely legal across the United States. If you’re wondering how these platforms work, you’re on the right page. 

Details on the Sweepstakes Legal Framework and Operation

In the U.S., most states prohibit online gaming at conventional casinos, with only a few regions permitting the activity. However, sweepstakes casino sites are legal and operational in 47 states except Washington and Michigan, while players in Idaho can’t redeem SCs for prizes. Sweepstakes casinos are legal in the U.S. because they are classified as promotional gaming contests under online gaming laws. Hence, they’re not in the same category as traditional gaming sites. 

How Sweepstakes Casinos Operate 

If you join a top sweepstakes casino such as Fortune Coins, you’ll receive virtual coins to play for free. The standard model uses a dual-currency system of Gold Coins (GC) and Sweepstakes Coins (SC). Both coins are available for free via regular bonuses and promotions, and they have no monetary worth. However, the interesting part is that you can usually redeem prizes if you meet specific requirements. 

Sweepstakes Casino Gameplay and Rewards System

At sweepstakes casinos, there’s usually a wide range of games to play. These include slots, blackjack, roulette, fish games, and poker. It’s worth mentioning that the gameplay isn’t notably different from conventional casino games. 

For instance, if you play slots at Fortune Coins, the target is still to win by hitting matching combinations. The primary difference is that you’ll be spinning the reels for free with Gold Coins and Fortune Coins (equivalent to Sweepstakes Coins). If you happen to run out of coins, there are always bonuses and promotions you can claim to receive more. 

However, you can optionally purchase a package if you want more Gold Coins. Additionally, wins from Sweepstakes Coins can be redeemed for prizes. Purchases and redemptions are a core part of the sweepstakes casino gameplay and rewards system. 

Purchasing Coins

Only Gold Coins are purchasable at sweepstakes casinos. You can’t buy Sweepstakes Coins.  Typically, you’ll find multiple packages with different GC amounts, and you can go with any that suit your interests. Once the purchase is complete, the sweepstakes casino will top up your balance with the specified number of Gold Coins.

Most sweepstakes casinos attach Sweepstakes Coins as bonuses when you buy a package. However, keep in mind that purchases are 100% optional, and there are always bonuses to give you free GCs and SCs

Redeeming Prizes

If you want rewards at sweepstakes casinos, the target is to play with Sweepstakes coins. GCs are not redeemable in any form. To redeem prizes via Sweepstakes Coins, you usually have to meet certain requirements, including: 

  • Confirming your identity
  • Getting up to a minimum amount of redeemable SC
  • Completing a playthrough

Most sites send prizes via bank, eWallet, or gift card, and you’re free to choose any option you prefer. 

Impact and Future Trends of Sweepstakes Casinos

Without question, sweepstakes casinos have made a significant impact in the US online gaming space. Players in states where online gaming is prohibited now have safe and legal alternatives to enjoy their favorite games. Gaming is 100% free, so players can focus on the fun without worrying about any risks. 

The future appears promising for sweepstakes casinos in the United States. Currently, they’re widely permitted, there would likely be more sweepstakes regulations in the near future to make these platforms more secure.
