Tribes Preparing For Legal Battle Over US Online Gambling

Tribes Preparing For Legal Battle Over US Online Gambling
The Top Online Casino Gambling News Reporting Organization! Indian tribes have long had their way in the US when it comes to casino gambling. Tribes all across the country have used their exempt tax status to open casinos on their reservations that have turned into profitable businesses. The tribes have controlled casino gambling in the country for decades.In recent years, the sentiment has grown in the US for regulated online gambling. The religious sector and many Conservative lawmakers have come out against the idea of regulating online casinos, and now the form of gambling has an unusual opponent. Indian tribes are gearing up for a legal battle over the online casinos that have now been approved in places such as Nevada, Delaware, and New Jersey.The tribes do not want the online gambling eliminated, they simply want their cut of the action. Much like with land-based casinos, the tribes will try to force the federal government to include Native Americans in the online gaming industry. It is a battle that many experts believe the tribes will win.”Once the first online casino is opened and regulated in the US, tribes across the nation will see that as a green light to open their own Internet gaming businesses,” said Gaming Analyst Brad Dawkins. “There is precedent that exists that allows Native Americans to offer the same services that are legal in the state in which their reservation resides, and the tribes will undoubtedly not want to lose out on the billion dollar industry.”Over the past five years, the push has strengthened each year to regulate online gambling. Originally, it was federal legislators such as Representative Barney Frank that was the author of bills to regulate online gambling. An opinion last year, however, from the Department of Justice opened the door for individual states to start crafting their own online gambling laws.Nevada, as was the case with land-based casinos, was the first to authorize online gambling. Nevada officials have been working diligently this year to get gaming companies licensed, and officials believe that online casinos will be operational in the state by the end of 2012 or early in 2013.Other states have started to follow Nevada’s lead. Delaware, the only other state in the US to offer sports betting, authorized Internet gambling earlier this year, as did New Jersey. Governor Chris Christie vetoed online gambling legislation last year, but has remained open to allowing the activity if the right bill came across his desk.

NBA Free Agent Period Ushers In New Season Of Betting
The NBA season ended with disappointment for many fans who were rooting against the Miami Heat. Now, fans and bettors alike have turned their attention to the start of free agency, which officially begins on Sunday.Some of the biggest names in the sport are expected to be making their decisions early in the free agency process. Deron Williams is the most coveted player on the market, and he has narrowed his choice down to the New Jersey Nets and Dallas Mavericks. Which of those teams wins his services will determine the betting odds for the upcoming season.New Jersey appears to be the frontrunner, and if the Nets are able to sign Williams and lure Dwight Howard out of Orlando, they suddenly would move to the top of the betting odds for the upcoming season. Jason Kidd is rumored to be following Williams to New Jersey.If Williams makes a last minute decision to return home to Texas, the Mavericks would suddenly become the favorites in the Western Conference, joining Oklahoma City and San Antonio. Williams is set to meet with both the Nets and Mavericks on Monday, with a decision coming soon after.Other free agents that could affect the betting odds for next year include Ray Allen and Steve Nash. Allen is being courted heavily by the Heat. Kevin Garnett, Allen’s teammate the past few seasons, has already said he will resign with the Celtics. Boston has expressed interest in keeping Allen.Nash has proclaimed for the first time in recent weeks that he can see himself playing somewhere other than Phoenix next season. The Knicks are a possibility for Nash, as are the Mavericks. If Dallas loses out on Williams, sources claim they will turn their full attention to signing Nash.Two teams that will not be making many moves this off-season are the Spurs and Los Angeles Lakers. The Lakers have actively sought to trade Pau Gasol before the draft this past week, but were unable to complete a deal.The Spurs are coming off a season in which they went to the Western Conference finals after not losing a game in the first two rounds of the playoffs. San Antonio won the first two games of the finals, then were promptly swept by the Thunder over the final four games of the series.

The series was shot at the famed Santa Anita race track, and has many moments that will seen foreign to those who have never been around a track.”It’s an act of faith,” said David Milch, the producer of Luck, when describing why he kept the “racing” language instead of changing the dialogue so people would understand. “Your fundamental response is to stay true to the deepest nature and intention of the materials. That’s what we did.”Dustin Hoffman plays Chester Bernstein, a major crime figure that is just coming out of jail when the series begins. The storyline revolves around Hoffman’s character purchasing a prized horse, with Dennis Farina’s character being the “alleged” owner of the horse. Several real life jockeys and trainers are involved throughout the series.As for Hoffman, he was excited about the opportunity to play a character in a series that was shot with the true essence of its subject in mind. The ability to shoot the scenes right on the track gave a real feel to the scenes, and it is something that Hoffman is thankful for.”I have not had this experience before,” said Hoffman. “You can’t get a shot at doing your best work in the studio system. They can get involved in kind of a quasi-creative way, but they buck heads with people they shouldn’t be bucking heads with.”Luck airs for the first time Sunday, and will have nine total episodes in season one. HBO is hoping to capitalize on what has become an increasingly gambling tolerant public. Gambling expansion is taking place all across the US, although most of the expansion centers around casinos. The racing industry has been the beneficiary of some of the expansion, with lawmakers allowing slots at state race tracks in states such as New York, Florida, and Massachusetts.

Online Gambling on Personal Academic Achievement Now Available

Online Gambling on Personal Academic Achievement Now Available
A new website permits US college students online gambling based on future grade performance. US residents tired of being denied access to conventional casino gambling on the Internet now have a fresh alternative while awaiting the advancement of H.R. 2267. A new service is allowing college students to use their academic records for online gambling.Ultrinsic is a website which uses an algorithm to calculate betting odds based on course difficulty, personal history and current workload. Site operators say taking bets and placing lines on a student’s future success acts as a motivating tool.Further, the site hopes to escape the nefarious clutches of the UIGEA ban while it still exists, as site designers say the system tests skill, not luck, and is therefore not gambling.”Other people’s stuff you bet on; your own stuff you invest in,” CEO Steven Wolf told the Boston Globe.Participants set their goals, and the Internet gaming site determines odds of the achievement coming to pass. Over 30 universities are already accepted by the database, including Stanford, New York University, and five Ivy League institutions, and more are being added each term.Online gambling foes might object to the targeting of young people, but site operators claim most participants are expected to use the wagers as motivation to study and excel. Internet and technology website Switched.com pointed out the company should expect to lose money, unless “the goal is to prey upon the under-performing students of America. In which case, Facebook’s beat you to it.” Published on August 10, 2010 by JoshuaMcCarthy

Atlantic City Casino Revenues Still Plummeting Past Recession End

Atlantic City Casino Revenues Still Plummeting Past Recession End
Even though the recession seems to be over, Atlantic City casino revenues are still on a steady decline. While much of the US is slowly returning back from the effects of the recession, casinos in Atlantic City continue to see steady decline in their revenues. According to statistics from the New Jersey Casino Control Commission, the gaming industry in Atlantic City saw income for July drop five percent from last year’s numbers.Only the Atlantic City Hilton and the Trump Taj Mahal were able to report better business this year than in 2009. Nine other casinos suffered losses from the year previous, and those figures were significantly down from 2008.Casino operators had used the national impact of the recession as a scapegoat for much of Atlantic City’s gaming trouble, but other factors continue to ravage the area’s gambling business. Increased competition in neighboring states has ended New Jersey’s exclusivity on the East Coast, and the convenience of online casinos continues to draw players in anticipation of the opening of the US gaming market.Governor Christie has proposed a state takeover of the city’s gambling district, but it is debatable whether New Jersey will be able to reverse the direction of the devastation simply through better branding and advertising.State Senator Ray Lesniak has led the way on several bold concepts designed to rescue Atlantic City’s gaming business, including challenging the federal ban on sports betting and suggesting intrastate online gambling run by AC casinos, but the measures are opposed by powerful foes both locally and nationally.In the meantime, New Jersey’s dependable cash cow seems to have gone hooves up.
