Roxy Palace Casino’s Video Poker Wins
There have been some great video poker wins this month for some lucky Roxy Palace Casino players. Many of the wins reaching into thousands of Dollars or Euros. Jacks or Better is one of the favorite video poker variants that is played at many online casinos, and is known as one of the standard video poker variants. One of the reasons that Jacks or Better is such a popular video poker variant is that this onlien video poker game has very good average returns. Lionel V., the lucky player that had a great win on 6th July, won a total of $8,256. On 9th July, another lucky player, Richard D. won another great amount. This player uses the Euro as currency, and won a total of 3,775 Euro when he was playing on a different video poker variant. Richard D. won his video poker winnings on a video poker variant called Joker Poker. Joker Poker is a video poker game that is played with a deck of cards that contains 53 cards. The extra card, as can be guessed by the name of this video poker variant, is a Joker. The Joker is a wild card that can help to make up many video poker hands. On 9th July, an even higher amount was won by Nora P. Nora P. won a total of 10,970 Euro when she played the video poker variant, Double Double Poker.

The Right Collection of Casino Games Makes All of the Difference!

The Right Collection of Casino Games Makes All of the Difference!
February 19th, 2012 Admin Getting into the world of on line gambling can be summed up in one word: exciting! It’s an incredible rush knowing that at any time you play at an online casino, you could potentially win big money. Serious money. The type of money that would allow you to quit your job, or at the very least work less. Progressive jackpots could bring that dream into a reality for you, but you won’t know until you play! The right collection of casino games makes all of the difference in the world when it comes to being entertained or not. If you’re not getting the type of entertainment that you’re looking for at one casino, you might be feeling frustrated. A lot of people automatically assume that they have to spend time at the same casino, where they don’t really get to do much of anything fun anymore, but that just isn’t the case anymore. In fact, it makes a lot more sense to be able to jump right into exploring new casino games and having fun. When you get right into it, it’s better to play at some casinos that might be outside your comfort zone once in a while just to make sure that you don’t get burned out. If you’re playing a strategy game, then this makes even more sense. If you get bored and burned out on one game, but you still continue to play, you might end up finding yourself making decisions that you wouldn’t normally make. This is very true when it comes to something like online poker. You start out making great decisions in poker, but over time you might get bored of the game. Instead of leaving, you decide to stay and tough it out, not wanting to look weak in front of your new poker playing friends. But if your heart isn’t into something, you might make some bad calls and raises that could end up depleting your bankroll. Losing money because you’re tired of a casino game just isn’t the way to go. Make sure that you try to focus on the bigger picture rather than just plowing through everything for the sake of staying in the game the longest. Overall, only you will be able to figure out when it’s time to move on in terms of what casino games you play and which ones that you avoid. Are you ready to figure that out? Well, there’s only one way to go, and that’s OUT — out into the wider world of casino games, of course! Posted in Casino Tags: Casino Games « Electrify a Tiring Day With Great Bingo – Try it Today!

Harry Reid Holds Online Casino Bill’s Future Hostage

Harry Reid Holds Online Casino Bill’s Future Hostage
Harry Reid is as mysterious as the Sphinx when it comes to predicting his ultimate stance on online casino regulation. Now that Barney Frank’s measure proposing regulation of online casinos has gathered some momentum in the House, observers are wondering how the bill may fare in the Senate. The uncertainty of which way that chamber will turn on Internet gambling lies directly at the feet of Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid.”He’s the linchpin,” Representative Shelley Berkley, from Reid’s home state of Nevada, told the Reno Gazette-Journal. “He will be the decider when it comes to Internet gaming.”On the surface, it might seem obvious that Reid would be on the side of opening the online gambling market and allowing the licensing of Internet poker sites and online gambling operators. Like Reid, Frank is a powerful member of the Democratic Party, and Reid certainly has no desire to aid Spencer Bachus and the ultra-conservative right in defeating H.R. 2267.But Reid has long relied heavily on the support of the giant casino companies in Las Vegas, a group divided on the subject of online casinos. Until recently, the land casinos were united behind Steve Wynn and his insistence on continuing the ill-designed UIGEA ban.Lately, some operators, led by Harrah’s, have altered their position, preparing themselves to adapt to regulated online gambling. The shift has left the American Gaming Association adopting an officially neutral stance.While Berkley told the paper she sees Reid softening on the issue of Internet casinos, the hardened politician finds himself in a fight for his political life. Without a decisive order from the casino companies, Reid may take whichever side is most politically expedient with his constituents to ensure his re-election.This could mean the entire US online casino policy for years to come may be decided by Nevada voters’ feelings on whether Internet gambling will increase or decrease their unemployment rate.

U.S. Judge Questions Campos Plea Deal

U.S. Judge Questions Campos Plea Deal
U.S. District Judge Lewis Kaplan wants an explanation from the government on why it let Utah banker John Campos plead guilty to a misdemeanor instead of a felony.  The government’s plan to prosecute Campos and avoid an April 9th trail has hit a snag. Of the dozen of individuals that have been charged from Black Friday last April, some have already pleaded guilty. Half remain at large and this is the only scheduled trail. Campos admitted the bank which he served as vice-chairman of its board of directors as well as part owner processed $200 million in gambling proceeds from 2009-2011. Questioning Campos’ sentence, Judge Kaplan asked why the government is “…basically walking away from the prosecution?” He will decide whether to except the pleas June 27th. Assistant US Attorney Arlo Devlin-Brown said that the deal is takes in consideration the risks of going to trail. One of those risks is that a jury may find that it is not illegal to process money for online gambling companies.  Devlin-Brown said, “There would be a risk that a jury on that basis could have a problem.” As part of his plea, Campas said, SunFirst Bank processed online gambling proceeds and that PokerStars and Full Tilt Poker promised to invest $10 million in his bank. He also said the investment was not because he agreed to process the gambling proceeds.

Blog de Paris Part Deux

Blog de Paris Part Deux
“We contend that for a nation to try to tax itself into prosperity is like a man standing in a bucket and trying to lift himself up by the handle.”Winston Churchill Stumps as you would say in cricket, David Sheperd would have been hopping around, one hundred and eleven started the Euro 1000 PLO at the ACF. (Apologies to those who don’t like or understand the cricket references) I had an unluckyish draw, if that is possible in Paris, and I had a table full of the PLO ‘regs’. When our table broke after a few hours there were fewer chips on it than any other and I still just had a starting stack. The draw in tournament poker is as important as anything else. Cut the boring bits and after 7 hours I still had a starting stack, we were down to 28 and it was the dinner break. Bruno Fitoussi invited a few of us to be his guests at the top table. Simon Trumper, Jeff Duval, Padraig Parkinson (looking a little bruised following his mugging in Paris the other night but in good form) and Nic Szeremeta were all present.. They put some plates of thin pink stripes of something on the table with half a lemon on top. Nic asked what they were and Bruno told him ‘fish eggs’. Padraig told us to plant them in the garden and grow some fish. So that’s why the action is so good here. There is an annual membership fee at the ACF now and Bruno was explaining that the French authorities take 70% of everything in tax and that’s gross not net. So out of every 10 euro taken in table charges the ACF get to keep only 3. It is because of this that four of the other main casinos/ card rooms in Paris have closed recently. Apparently the ACF is not like a normal casino it is what they call an ‘association’. Without the membership fees the ACF may not make an actual profit and is not allowed legally for an ‘association’ to lose money. Padraig informs us that he is going to become an association too. In Germany we are told the government don’t take 70% they take 90%! Hence the lack of places to play live poker in Germany. We thought it was bad in the UK with the newish tax hikes on card rooms. When are these governments actually going to employ someone who understands the business? After dinner things improved and by the time we hit the money spots (top 16) I had average chips. Sadly two or three pots later and having flopped a set and straight draw and turning a flush draw too I found myself all in for the first time in 14 hours. It was to be the last time too and I picked up Euro 2100 for 12th spot. Kudos to Nicolas Fraioli for a great structure though and a great run event. Tonight I am off to the EFOP awards where Barny has been nominated for rookie of the year and then back on the Eurostar tomorrow lunchtime. Next stop is the Genting Poker Series in Birmingham from the 1st to the 5th of February. I’ll be there all week and hope to see at least a few of you there too. At least Star City don’t do fingerprinting.

D.C. Online Gambling Delayed; Public To Have Input

D.C. Online Gambling Delayed; Public To Have Input
Opponents of a new online casino site in Washington D.C. were pleased on Monday when the D.C. Lottery announced that it would be delaying the launch of the online casino. The delay, according to city council members, is for time to gain public input on the controversial issue.Earlier this year the D.C. Council allowed a deadline to pass in which they could have eliminated the online gambling law. With the deadline passed, the D.C. Lottery began preparing for a launch of late July for free play and September for real money gambling online. Monday, the entire process was put on hold.”It could be October, it could be November, it could be next year,” said council member Jack Evans, in response to when the online casino will finally be launched. Other council members believed that later this year was the more probable date for the start of regulated online gambling in the city.Michael A. Brown claimed the gambling would become a reality later this fall. Before that happens, however, there is going to be a series of public discussions on the issue, and the hope is that the council will ease the fears of those opposed to the new gaming laws.Even those who are in favor of the expanded form of gambling will be allowed to attend the public forums to ask questions and gather information on the plan. The public areas where the online site will be accessible will have a sixty day review period before the site launches.While many states had lawmakers spending weeks debating online gambling, D.C. quietly pushed through a law regulating the industry last December. Even if the site is delayed for several months, it will likely become the first online casino in the US that is being run with US regulations.The city where the online site will go live is ironically the same city where the Department of Justice originated an online gambling indictment against PokerStars and Full Tilt Poker, two of the largest online poker sites in the world.Lawmakers in Washington are working towards a federal resolution to Internet gambling prohibition. Representatives Joe Barton and John Campbell, both Conservatives, have proposed two separate bills that would regulate online poker. In Barton’s bill, other forms of online gambling would remain unregulated.US online poker players represent a large portion of the population in the US, and they have made their voices heard after losing their two primary places to play online. Professional poker players have also taken a stand, with several boycotting the World series of Poker until Full Tilt pays US customers the funds that were in their accounts at the time of the government shutdown of the site.
