Filed under: Casino — Tags: , — OCE News @ 5:18 am

There was once a time when casino games were played only by the wealthiest houses in Europe. Indeed, so prevalent was such gaming that a number of powerful persons fell into serious debt because of what they wagered on cards or at the table. Gambling was seen as a great pastime back then. For people who lived off the large income they received from their estates and had to do no work at all during the day, gambling was a way to entertain themselves and to blow off some steam.

That changed significantly in the middle of the twentieth century. The first great gambling casinos were established in Nevada, and they have taken root in many other cities since that time. In fact, most major cities have gambling casinos of some sort. But many have developed large sectors dedicated to such gaming. Anyway, until very recently you had to make a special effort to travel and find accommodation for yourself if you want to play casino games online. That is, until the advent of online casino games.

The fact is online casino games make it a great deal easier to play the games you want when you want to play them. You don’t have to worry about taking time off work and making other kinds of arrangements in order to enjoy an evening playing your favorite games. Indeed, you don’t necessarily have to wait until a particular part of the day in order to play such games. Because online casino games are so easily accessed, you can play the games you want to at any time during the day.

The existence of online casino games represents nothing less than a democratic revolution in the nature of the games. Now anyone can play them, regardless of where they live and what their financial status is. If you have enjoyed playing such games all your life but the circumstances of your life have prevented you from getting to the card table as often as you like, then you should consider playing online casino games. You will not have to worry about going through the hassle and bother of finding a room and taking time off work just to play casino games.

Indeed, online casino games can be played at work. They can be played before work. They can be played after work. They can be played anytime you get the inclination to play them. This is one of the best things about online casino games: they free you to play whenever you want.

Fortunately, it is not that hard to find the games that you like to play. You can search online using your laptop or your mobile phone. Most of the sites can accessed free of charge, and you will be allowed to wager however much money you feel comfortable with.

This will enable you to make inquiries and put yourself forward as someone willing to fund them.

Although it is not well-known, gambling is for many a profession. It is a way of making a living. This is not a recent phenomenon. Since the advent of gambling, there have been those who have studied and analyzed it and determined ways to make it work for them. The work of such persons is not as glamorous as it appears on movies. It is typically quite droll and mundane and involves a lot of trial and error. But anyone who puts their mind to it can learn how to make a decent living out of playing in a casino. And they can do so for a long time.

Furthermore, being a professional gambler is not limited to working in brick-and-mortar casinos. It is possible to play in online casinos as well.

Filed under: Casino — Tags: , — OCE News @ 8:34 am

According to an online report at the website, Associated Press writer Philip Marcelo states that Las Vegas developer Steve Wynn unveiled a snap shot of a proposed casino in Everett, Massachusetts near Boston. Mr. Wynn spoke to residents in May of 2014 about the project. Wynn Resorts is trying to build a $1.6 billion resort and casino. However, the deal is not yet done. Wynn Resorts has to obtain a casino gambling license from the state of Massachusetts.

Wynn is planning on purchasing about 30 acres of land that is located by the Mystic River. The resort company will pay about $35 million for the land or roughly $1.17 million per acre. There was a conflict of interest early in the negotiations. Mr. Charles Lightbody and Gary DeCicco had a financial interest in FBT Everett Realty. Everett Realty is the land holder. Both men have been convicted of a felony. The state of Massachusetts Gaming Commission state laws bans convicted felons from making money from casino deals.

The Massachusetts Gaming Commission provided statements that says land owners Dustin DeNunzio, Paul Lohnes and Anthony Gattineri are ready to sell the property. A commission spokeswoman Elaine Driscoll states that the documents have to be reviewed by the legal staff at the gaming commission.

In the mean time, Mohegan Sun is also trying to obtain a casino license in the Boston area. Mr. Sun’s proposal includes a $1.2 billion casino near the Suffolk Downs horse track. On May 21, 2014, reporter Adam Vaccaro reported that Everett officials reached a deal with Mohegan Sun. Mr. Sun is agreeing to pay the city $575,000 a year and provide funds for a $300,000 traffic study. There are two companies competing for one casino license in the Boston area.

Casino representatives are working with the mayors in surrounding cities and city officials to iron out the final details. The local government’s wants to see and receive a financial compensation package from the resorts. The casino’s activities will have a major impact on government services and the residents in the community.

If you like to gamble, the Mohegan Sun is one of the places. It has 300,000 square feet of gambling space. There is also wide variety of casino games to play. Visitors can play table games, slot machines, poker, race book, power play bonusing, Asian gaming and more. On the other hand, Wynn Resorts is a five start resort with a stock price in the range of $190 to $200 a share. It has 186,000 square feet of casino space.

Finally, there will be one more place to play casino games and gamble in Massachusetts. The decision to grant a license should be approved or denied by early October 2014. The gaming commission will most likely approve the license.

Filed under: Casino — Tags: , — OCE News @ 8:30 am

Gambling is an exciting pastime that offers a shot at a return. When gambling you are not just paying for the entertainment of the moment. Gambling offers you a chance to have fun, challenge yourself and an opportunity to make back all the money spent and more. It is a thrilling form of entertainment. With several different forms of gambling from slot machines to playing the tables, gambling has soared to new levels of popularity.

With it’s popularity the highest in years, casinos are being built everywhere. You can even find all the games from casinos in your very own home. Casino webpages are all over the internet offering low and high bid games including slots and table games. The websites offer games with varying odds and even include atmosphere you would find at a casino. You can talk to other players through online chats and find all the graphics and excitement of the casino in the virtual realm.

There are further perks to playing in online casinos. With smoking bans occurring across the nation you would be free to set your own rules about smoking while playing online. Also available online is the opportunity to play at eighteen years old instead of waiting until you are twenty-one. While the legal age for gambling varies from country to country most casinos prefer to be able to serve alcohol on the carpet without having to check identification every time so they try to only permit those who are of legal age to drinks on the carpet. While the drinks at the casino may be on the house the intent behind serving drinks on the floor has always been that intoxicated people will play longer. Intoxicated people tend to feel as if they are floating on a cloud and they can easily lose track of the time they have spent on the floor as well as the amount of money they have spent. Another perk of the online casinos is that you, as the gambler, get to decide your attire without any questionable looks or qualms.

With fun names and fun games players are encouraged to gamble online as much as in a traditional casino. Online casinos may not offer the same bonuses as traditional casinos but they still offer bonuses non the less. Online casinos will offer players sign in bonuses for creating new accounts. Online casinos also offer you the convenience of scheduling, you play whenever wherever, and whatever game you would like. You also receive the benefit of having the earnings securely directed straight to your credit card. By playing online a player also enjoys the opportunity of privacy and personal tutoring as a player can easily open another tab and read up on tips to play games as well as watch videos of the game being played.

Casinos may all seem alike but they are really in competition for your business. A player can always find great perks and benefits no matter where they play, either online or in traditional casinos.

Late June News in Online Gaming

Filed under: Casino — Tags: , — OCE News @ 8:28 am

All of the current talk in the Online Casino world is coming from London this month. The Gaming Licensing Act, that was recently granted Royal Assent is being fought by the Industry in Gibraltar, including 32Red. The other big news is a mega-merger to the tune of $4.9 by Amaya!

Gibraltar verses England

England’s recent attempt to impose law and taxes upon online gambling has generated a push-back. The Gibraltar Betting and Gaming Association (GBGA) reflects the united interests of the online gaming sites that are based outside of the UK and on Gibraltar.

This is a response to the UK Gambling Licensing and Advertising Act of 2014, which not only adds new levels of regulation from London but also a 15pt tax upon all bets placed. 32Red and others based in Gibraltar already are required to have permits and are regulated in Gibraltar.

GBGA sees this as both an attempt by London, to raise an estimated 300 million pounds annual from this Act, which already has received Royal Assent. It is also seen as a lever to force bookmakers and sites to return to the shores of the UK and depart Gibraltar.

Lawyers in Olswang have been hired by the GBGA to challenge the legality of the entire act. The 15pt VAT “point of consumption tax” on all bets placed from the UK, is expensive and a dangerous precedent in an industry already regulated in Gibraltar. They are claiming the Gambling Act will expose gamblers to “unscrupulous operators” and is a breach of law in the EU.

Amaya’s $4.9 Billion

Amaya is planning to cash acquire the Oldsford Group, based offshore in the UK on the Isle of Man for $4.9 Billion. Oldsford may not be familiar to you, but it is the owner of online gaming sites Poker Stars, and Full Tilt Poker. This acquisition will create the world’s largest online gaming operation in the world.

The meta-casino online is just the beginning. Amaya is preparing to return the pokers sites back to America! Three years ago, online gaming was treated as illegal in the United States, but a new interpretation of the 2011 Wire Act has re-opened the way for individual states to decide if online gaming is legal within their borders.

Amaya has stated that it fully intends to return Full Tilt Poker, and Poker Stars to USA. Those sites already operate and deal with American regulations, but Amaya has not disclosed its plans beyond returning to America. Amaya usually has operated behind the scenes in the gaming industry, some lotteries, numerous varieties of slot machines, and most notably casino management software.


Taxing and Regulation are again the big news in Online Casinos this month. The UK attempting to impose its new 15pt tax on the Gibraltar Industry, and the industry pushing back this attempt at greater taxes. In the States, the new flexibility to legalize and tax the industry has led to Amaya attempting to purchase the owner of Full Tilt Poker and Poker Stars so they can return to the United States!
