New poker raids in Toronto

Reports on CTV Toronto indicate that the police have again been active in raiding "poker houses" in the city. Police executed search warrants on Nuttz and the Pertutti Bar and claim to have seized gaming tables, chips, cards, other equipment and cash.

Seven people have been charged with keeping a common gaming house, and fifty-six others with being found in a common gaming house.

The investigation, led by the organised crime section's illegal gambling unit, is in collaboration with various police services across southern Ontario from Ottawa to Windsor, a police spokesman revealed this week.

"The unit is responsible for province-wide illegal gambling investigations pertaining to Part VII of the Criminal Code within the province of Ontario, with an emphasis on organised crime," he said.

Det. Emilio DiPoce told the news station that illegal gambling operations had been lucrative for the owners, earning up to Cdn$ 1.5 million a year.

"It's astronomical how much money they make," DiPoce told reporters. "Anybody who deals in drugs has got to have their head read, when the gambling is so easy for them." And, he added, the money was not declared for tax, doubling its intrinsic worth.

DiPoce said such gaming clubs are "popping up all over the place," and predicted that ythe situation would get worse due to growing enthusiasm for poker generated by extensive television coverage and advertising.

    "I just started using bitcoin myself. I buy bitcoin using my checking account thru Coinbase. It takes a little longer than using a debit/credit card but if I understand it correctly the fees are lower that way. Then I transfer bitcoin to my wallet at Blockchain before depositing at an online casino. I made two deposits at Slotastic! and one at Slotocash and each time the money was there immediately. The only problem I had was on my first deposit I did not account for the conversion difference when making a minimum amount deposit and my bonus did not get triggered automatically. I got it soon worked out though when I contacted support thru Live Chat and explained the mistake was caused by my first time using bitcoin. They credited my account with the bonus and just suggested I add a little more next time to cover the additional fees and conversion rate differences. I didn't do too good at Slotocash but did much better at Slotastic! and even though I made my deposit using bitcoin there was a message on the Withdraw screen saying I had to send in their Credit Card Authorization Agreement before I could make a withdrawal. I contacted Live Support to clarify and they advised I only had to send in a copy of my drivers license and a recent utility bill to verify my identity not my credit card. After I emailed these documents I received an email the next day advising my documents had been received and approved. I then submitted my withdrawal request and expected an immediate response just like I got on my deposit but it didn't happen. That's been about 7 hours ago now so I'm guessing it might be a day or two at least if I'm lucky before anything happens. But if it happens then that'll be much better than having to wait weeks or months like some have to. I'll update later when the withdrawal is finally completed."
