Announcement: 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!

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.

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.

Xenophon Continues Anti-Online Gambling Crusade In Australia

Xenophon Continues Anti-Online Gambling Crusade In Australia
Nick Xenophon has spent the last couple of years pushing for stronger regulations in the Australian gaming industry. Xenophon has made no secret of his desire to rid the country of gambling completely, although he has had a hard time convincing his fellow lawmakers to eliminate the big revenue-maker.Now comes a report that Australians have used PokerStars and Full Tilt Poker, two of the largest online poker sites in the world, and two sites that were frequently targeted in a US Department of Justice crackdown.The report has Xenophon again looking to go after anyone involved with allowing the illegal gambling, and on his hit list this week was the Australian Federal Police. Xenophon claims the AFP has not been aggressive enough in going after the illegal online gambling.”There could be a hidden epidemic of problem gambling from online gambling that we just don’t know about,” said Xenophon. He went on to claim that the law enforcement officials are to blame for not moving quickly to defuse the potential problem.Xenophon’s stance is not one that is shared by many lawmakers. In most cases, lawmakers are looking to join other nations such as France, Germany, Italy, and Spain, in creating a regulated system of Internet gambling. Xenophon is strongly opposed to any such regulations, and it could cause a showdown amongst lawmakers in the coming years.The Australian government has been attempting to slow problem gambling at a land-based level. The government is pushing legislation that would require casinos to install technology that would force gamblers to set betting limits before they played slot machines. The casinos are seeking to have that be an option, instead of a requirement.Another potential problem in Australia is sports betting. Sports leagues have called on the government to create laws making it a felony to be involved with any type of sports cheating associated with gambling. Sports betting is a big business, not only in Australia, but around the world, becoming a billion dollar industry over the past decade.

How profitable is online poker?

How profitable is online poker?
poker is far different to the majority of casino games because instead of playing against the house
you are playing against the other players at the table. The house or poker rooms are obviously profiting from your play through the rake they take from each pot
but the odds of each situation will not be in favour of the house
because any money that you win or lose will not directly come from them but from your opponents…
