More Net IDN Slot Casinos Join Seal of Approval Program



VANCOUVER, British Columbia — The Interactive Gaming Council (IGC) today announced that three additional online casinos have applied to participate in the Seal of Approval program (SoA), an IGC initiative designed to increase consumer confidence in interactive gambling.


The new participants are Captain Cooks Casino, Casino Kingdom and English Harbour. Captain Cooks and Casino Kingdom are licensed by the Kahnawake Gaming Commission and operated by Integrity Casinos Ltd. English Harbour, licensed in Antigua, is operated by EH New Ventures Inc.


The new applicants, upon approval as SoA members, will join the five original members of the SoA program – VIP Sports and VIP Soccer, operated by VIP Services and Casino Fortune, Mapau Casino and Miami Beach Casino, all operated by the Sunny Group.


All SoA agreements with the IGC require participant sites to provide fair and honest gambling environments and business practices and to implement player protection mechanisms. An important part of the program is to abide by the results of a formalized dispute resolution process, assuring players that an IGC representative will take an active role in mediating a problem between a player and a site.


“To date there have been no unsatisfied complaints against the original SoA members,” said Keith Furlong, deputy director of the IGC. “It’s logical that only the best sites, ones with conscientious customer service personnel, would subject themselves to this additional review and to the dispute resolution process.”


The SoA agreement, which is subject to annual review, is the final step in the application process performed by the IGC and independent third-party experts on behalf of the IGC. When an SoA applicant is approved, its participating sites are permitted to display the Seal of Approval logo.

Robin Hood tax on pokie profits




PUBS and clubs in South Australia will be hit with a 65per cent “Robin Hood” tax on their earnings from pokie machines and other gaming activities, after the state’s Budget yesterday imposed the nation’s highest marginal tax rate for gambling.


Delivering the state’s first Labor Budget in nine years, Treasurer Kevin Foley declared an attack on the “super profits” collected by pubs and clubs that earn more than $2.5million a year in net gaming revenue.


Once they hit the $2.5 million mark, pubs will pay 65 per cent of their net earnings in tax, while clubs will pay 55 per cent. More than 90 venues in South Australia will fall into the top “super profit” bracket.


But smaller pubs and clubs could benefit from the new regime, with a new tax-free threshhold of $75,000 set, which is expected to benefit nearly 370 pubs and clubs — 246 of them in the bush. The new threshhold means small operators will pay no, or reduced, gaming taxes. Rates for Adelaide’s casino have not been adjusted.


Nearly half the net gaming revenue in South Australia passes through just 13 per cent of venues and the two largest pokie venues in the state earned $5.6 million and $5.4 million before tax in 2001.


The regime is expected to deliver an extra $34 million to the state this financial year.


Government figures estimate South Australia’s and Victoria’s average hotel UFA gaming tax in 2002-03 at 41 per cent, with 37 per cent in Queensland and 24 per cent in NSW.


The new tax rate was attacked by the hotel industry as a recipe for job losses and bankruptcies.


But Norwood Football Club general manager David Wark welcomed the new tax regime for small and …

Ligaz11 Review of Blackjack and the Law

With the expansion of legal gambling throughout the United States, the game of Blackjack has never been so widespread, and its legal status has never been so difficult to understand. In the old days of Las Vegas, an undesirable patron would typically be unceremoniously thrown out at the whim of a casino’s management with no recourse. These days, with lawsuits over a casino’s right to bar players, court cases testing device and cheating statutes, and gaming commissions who have their own ideas on how to regulate games operating independently in over a dozen states, one needs a road map to navigate through the state of the industry. Blackjack and the Law attempts to provide such a road map.

The book is based on a series of articles written by the person most experts consider to be the foremost authority on the legal aspects of gambling in the United States, I. Nelson Rose. These articles have appeared in various publications, such as Card Player and Blackjack Forum since 1985, and update the high quality, but long out of date and out of print, material that appeared in Rose’s previous book, Gambling and the Law. Each article is then edited and amended by the book’s second author, Robert Loeb, considered by most to probably be the second authority on the legal aspects of gambling in the United States. Loeb also adds commentary after each article, providing his viewpoint and addenda since the essay was originally written. This is a powerful one, two combination that leads to some truly thought provoking investigations into the legal situation surrounding the game of Blackjack.

Many topics are covered in various chapters which include the legal status of card counting and barring, casino countermeasures, back rooming, device laws, taxes, Internet gambling, gambling on Indian reservations, and many …

Inside the Interactive เกมสล็อตที่แตกง่ายที่สุด Gaming Council

Uncommunicative, casino operator oriented and player insensitive were some of the more common and heated accusations made against the Interactive Gaming Council (IGC) on message boards across the internet during the Golden Palace confiscated winnings dispute.

Angry and frustrated players unable to open a reasoned personal dialogue with the casino or its software provider turned their guns on the IGC, which appeared not to take a position on the issue by remaining silent amidst the escalating furore.

In all things there are generally two sides to a story. And it is true that although message boards perform an invaluable function in exchanging information there are times when accusations levelled in the heat of the moment can take on a life of their own in the ensuing storm of vituperation – and that can obscure the truth.

So what is the IGC’s attitude towards เกมสล็อตที่แตกง่ายที่สุด players, and how does their complaint structure operate? What powers do they have over members and who are those members? For these and other answers we turned to the IGC Executive Director, Rick Smith, and Deputy Executive Director, Keith Furlong, and found them both willing and keen to respond.

Winneronline (WO): Is the IGC focused on fair treatment for online casino players?

IGC: Absolutely. It is a major objective for us, and our membership conditions and programs are based on building player confidence in IGC casinos which voluntarily comply with our codes.

This was one of the key components in the IGC organization in 1996. Development of a Code of Conduct to protect players in the then new industry was one of the first initiatives.

A key mission of the IGC is to promote an environment where there is an absence of fraud, both fraud by players as well as operators, and this is why we …

Plan could lead to selling lottery tickets on the Internet

SPRINGFIELD — Imagine being able to forgo a trip to the convenience store when the Mega Millions lottery game prize hits nine digits and buy your ticket for that drawing from the computer in your den.

No state sells lottery tickets over the Internet now. But a leading Senate Democrat and group of influential backers are urging Gov. Blagojevich’s administration to embrace the concept, which could generate as much as $100 million annually for the state’s cash-starved public school system.

“I think it’s a great idea,” said state Sen. John Cullerton (D-Chicago), who has introduced legislation authorizing a pilot study of an Internet-based lottery system. “I just wonder why we are passing up an opportunity to get money into the common school fund. It’s not an expansion of gambling. It’s legal, and it would appeal to wealthier patrons.”

The group that approached Cullerton with the idea is led by Mark Doyle, a former aide to President Bill Clinton and member of Blagojevich’s transition team. Also included are Dr. Steven DeAngelis, who is Mayor Daley’s physician and first hatched the idea, and Chicago restaurateur Phil Stefani, who has donated more than $43,000 to Illinois politicians, including the governor and Cullerton.

Gambling foe lashes out

The three are developing software that would enable the state to sell tickets over the Internet and be able to screen out underage buyers and cap purchases, among other things.

Besides the prospect of making money off the venture, the plan’s backers say it would raise new resources for the state, reinvigorate stagnant lottery sales and, most importantly, shift the lottery toward those with higher incomes who aren’t big users of the lottery.

So far, Blagojevich has been cool to the proposal, which is scheduled to be heard in a Senate committee Wednesday, the day of the …

When computers go wrong over Domino Qiu Qiu Uang Asli

Believe me I’m having a few pints tonight when I get out. Had one hell of a day. Trading turned out to be a complete waste of time (see post above) but worst was my server, which has sat quietly on it’s own in Germany without incident for years, deciding it was time to demand some tlc. It literally just turned itself off and stubbornly resisted all attempts to turn it back on. Which meant all my websites disappeared. And with them my “proper” income. But the biggest worry was it looked for a while like my brand spanking new database, sat on the server, had wandered off into cyberspace never to be seen again too. And me being a fool hadn’t backed it up for two weeks. ie, Before I’d put most the data in. Doh!

Anyway, thank fuck everything was recovered a short while ago and all is well again. The irony is I spent the morning setting up a monster new server to transfer everything to in a couple of weeks. Just in time by the looks of it. This German job appears to be on its last legs.


Spent several hours on the phone today sorting out stuff that, well, needed sorting, but managed a very quick dip into the tennis between it all and made a small profit.


Emma was out after work tonight so I had my eye on the West Indies v India ODI for a spot of evening trading. Got involved with the West Indies into their innings and with what looked a pretty straightforward run chase on.


There were some nice Domino Qiu Qiu Uang Asli market swings but the event was ruined from a trading perspective when the one click trading tool I use to trade through …
