        I was thinking to create a thread about any new Internet Gaming news and Regulations...so if you have new updated information please post it away!!!

        Thought this was interesting...

        Google has said that they will allow gambling and online casinos adds for the first time in the UK on YouTube. The possibility exists because the video site’s have eased advertising rules. Ladbrokes is the first to advertise on YouTube.

        Google owns YouTube, and the new ad rules are in line with the easing of rules for Google Adwords, online casino operators may advertise through Google Adwords since 2008. Under the new advertising rules it is allowed for online casino gambling companies to launch ad campaigns with an age restriction, this includes pre-roll ads on the homepage of YouTube, the video pages and in the channels of trade marks. You can only view the contents of the ad, when it is asserted that you are over 18 years via the Age Verification System, if you indicated in your account that you are over 18 years, you be able to see the Internet gambling ads.

        English bookmaker Ladbrokes is the first online casino operator who advertises on YouTube, but other online casino operators will soon follow. James Cashmore technology officer of Google UK said: “We are confident that the ads will only reach people over 18, and that industry and legislators will be happy with the restrictions in place. We have already had more than two years of discussion with brands and companies about this. Google has worked with charity GamCare, but the support group for compulsive gambling have not received information about the expansion of advertising.”

        All internet casino ads will run through renewed the Google Display Network, which replaces Google Content Network. Cashmore said the name change shows how display is central to the advertising offer from Google. “Display, covers a large portion of the Content Network, so it was logical to change it.” Says Cashmore...

        Illegal immigration is not all Arizona has been contending with recently, as the Department of Gaming has begun sweeping the state to shut down illegally operating gambling dens. These raids have proved successful, as many machines have already been seized.

        The Office of the Arizona Attorney General, backed by the Department of Gaming, has already seized more than 70 illegal wagering devices in the Phoenix area. These Coin-Pushers, as they have been dubbed, are still in the process of being seized by agents working for the state.

        These coin pushers are similar to some games found in children’s arcades. A player would drop in a coin, while a block would push other coins already dropped in the machine over a ledge and down to a chute where the winnings can be redeemed. Prizes are also in some of these machines, such as jewelry, watches, bracelets and more. Only the prizes that move off the shelf are recoverable by the player.

        Due to the nature of these machines, the player does not face a sure chance at winning. All returns on investment are determined completely by luck. Some players could pour dozens of coins into these machines and still yield no returns.

        Over $200,000 in illegal gambling revenue is set to be seized. Seizure warrants have been filed to recover these funds.

        Arizona online gambling remains an option for players who wants to make some cash off of a game of chance. These sites, like the coin pushers, are not regulated, though the online gambling sites are not illegal like the push machines.

        Oh, Geez...I love those machines...

        Theres also a timer on them so you cannot cheat the machine..

        One time there was one that was dollars and alot of them were hanging off the edge, my daughters father was playing it and ran out of coins, so he bumped it a little and they all fell but nothing came out.. so he calls over the floor person and tells them, they told him.. there is a timer on it explaining that if the coins didn't fall when he put his coin in within a certain time it fell to another area... I was laughing at him.. dum-dum they knew what he did, so did the machine... hahahaha

        In total, there are 11 casinos in the United States second-largest gaming industry in Atlantic City, New Jersey.  While the industry in Atlantic City continues to struggle, the casinos wage another battle against Internet gambling that they have taken on in the recent weeks.

        The Casino Association of New Jersey has recently come out saying that they would be against the set up of legal online gambling through their casinos, eluding to the fact that it would violate laws in place on the federal level disallowing online sports betting and gambling.

        Joe Corbo, the President of the Association wrote a letter stating the concerns of the casinos.

        “As the industry seeks to work with government to revitalize the economic engine that the Atlantic City casinos bring to the state of New Jersey, the last thing that the state needs at this time is to undermine the destination resort model by expanding gambling to other parts of the state,” the letter read.

        Some of the provisions being considered would be letting the casinos filter sports betting online and featuring online table games.  Corbo stated that the company behind this, the Interactive Media Entertainment & Gaming Association, deals in large part with offshore online casinos and Internet gambling.

        “New Jersey, which has set the gold standard for its gambling laws, should not now have its gambling laws driven by a group like iMEGA that is made up of offshore Internet gambling sites that are not permitted to accept wagers in the United States and are thumbing their nose at the United States Department of Justice,” he said in the letter.

        President of the iMEGA company, Joseph Brennan, stated that the company would not treat the New Jersey Online Casinos any differently.

        “We sought out New Jersey because they have the toughest gaming regulators on the planet, and they’ll probably be even tougher on anyone that wants to fill this space,” he remarked.

        “We advocated all along for the existing Atlantic City casinos to be the apex of this industry and this effort,” Brennan added. “The revenue would flow through them. The opportunity for Internet operators is to ink partnerships with casinos, which don’t currently have the expertise, the technology or the manpower to get this business up off the ground.”

        Brennan stated that as many as 57,000 jobs could be created and over $7 billion in revenue.  

        Whoa~~~

        This is another reason I am against "legalized internet gambling" in the United States.  It would choke the fun spots like Atlantic City, and even hurt Vegas.  I say keep it shady and off shore like it is now.  While I have had occaisional problems with withdrawal delays, I have always gotten my money.

        I have to say when i have spent weekends on the Las vegas Strip or downtown, i can use the term "it's nuts to butts" out there, but not everyone is gambling.. so unless online internet gambling can touch what Vegas has in all aspects, it won't be such a problem

        Lord of the Ring Slots Game to be released...  



        Online casino group Microgaming, the world’s largest provider of online gaming software, has announced that it has signed a multi-year licensing agreement with Warner Bros. Digital Distribution, to create a series of cutting-edge, graphic rich video slots, based on the popular The Lord of the Rings movie trilogy

        The agreement gives Microgaming permission to develop online video slot games using animation material, themes and characters from the motion pictures The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring, The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers and The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King.

        Lord of the Ring deal illustrates Microgaming’s commitment to license the right brands, at the right time.  It is a strategic and timely decision to secure exclusive, online video slot game rights to a trilogy that generated $3billion in worldwide box office and was nominated for a total of 30 Academy Awards®; of which they won 17, including Best Picture.

        Roger Raatgever, CEO of Microgaming said, "We’re excited about creating state-of-the-art video slots from the best movie trilogy of the decade. We look forward to bringing The Lord of the Rings into the online gaming sphere, where our expertise in game quality and speed to market will ensure its success. The Lord of the Rings has a huge entrenched fan base with over 97% awareness of the film franchise, as well as phenomenal and unprecedented home video success.”

        The announcement comes hot on the heels of the launch of Microgaming's latest flagship branded video slot, Hellboy, which has been hugely successful amongst the player community.
