We’ve gone a few weeks without seeing any big progressive jackpot wins (and by big we mean six figures or more) but there have been a couple of big wins lately that have been worth waiting for!

There was a $4.2 Million winner of the Beach Life jackpot only last fall but it’s just been hit again, this time for a whopping €1.8 Million! A French player named Alain M. won this massive jackpot at Casino Europa. You don’t want to hear this – he’d only been playing a few minutes when he became an instant millionaire! Like we always say it really only takes one lucky spin to win!

Meanwhile Slotland has been writing cheques to players at both of their online slots sites. First they had a record-breaking $200K jackpot win at Slotland.com on the Heavy Metal game. Then, the very next week, they had their second six-figure …

I put a $100 bill on the crap layout and immediately thereafter, the three rolled making me an instant loser. It is not the poor timing I am complaining about, but what I actually wanted was change for my hundred as I am normally a $5, pass line bettor. My question is, are not dealers automatically supposed to exchange my money into chips? Jay M.

Depends, Jay, on where you put your $100 on the layout. Was it directly on the pass line? It is important because the old adage “money lays, it plays” is a cliche that can play–and pay–the casino.

 

True, some casinos automatically change you up into gaming tokens whether you put your hard-earned money on the layout or the pass line, but the word to notice here is “some.”

 

In many casinos, putting paper currency on the pass line indicates to the dealer that …

It’s a pretty good time to be a Korean football fan. Qualification for the World Cup was expected but still welcome for all concerned. But what is really getting people excited are the ‘Two Parks’ – Park Ji-sung and Park Chu-young.– the hottest properties in Asian football.

Park ji-sung

 

The older of the two, Ji-sung, has just joined Manchester United in a $7.4 million deal; one that thrusts the shy Suwon native stumbling onto one of the brightest stages on the planet.

The 24 year-old will need to use all of his, not …

Earlier this year Bitcoin policy think tank Coin Center claimed the role of interface to policymakers and regulators, with the publication of a framework for state digital currency regulation. On March 27, Coin Center issued a detailed commentary to New York’s BitLicense, combining measured praise with constructive criticism.

 

MIT Digital Currency Initiative lead Brian Forde praised the Coin Center commentary, and, in particular, the idea that regulations should strike a middle ground in such a way as to protect both consumers and digital innovators.

 

“Our mission is to build a better understanding of these technologies and to promote a regulatory climate that preserves the freedom to innovate using blockchain technologies,” says the Coin Center website. “We do this by producing and publishing policy research from respected academics and experts, educating policymakers and the media about blockchain technology, and by engaging in advocacy for sound public policy.”

Officials could see battle over Internet gambling this year

 

Terrorism and economic stimulus might be at the top of the congressional agenda, but two familiar topics to the gaming industry — Internet gambling and a proposed ban on college sports betting — are waiting to emerge in 2002.

 

Two bills aiming to ban Internet gambling in the United States — one introduced by Rep. Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., the other by Rep. James Leach, R-Iowa — were introduced in Congress last year. Both bills are targeted at banning the use of credit cards, electronic transfers and checks at Internet casinos — and both could emerge in 2002, said Rep. John Gibbons, R-Nev.

 

“It’s going to be a battle,” Gibbons said at an afternoon session of the American Gaming Summit. “Both of them are very strong-willed individuals.”

 

Few observers give either bill much of a …

MACAU — The drive-by assassinations and gangland shootouts finally have died down in the former Portuguese enclave of Macau. Now comes the hard part: turning a city famed for gambling, girls and guns into a wholesome family and business travel destination.

The small city, an hour from Hong Kong by high-speed boat, was a Portuguese enclave for 442 years before being handed back to China on December 20, 1999. But locals now jest that the real handover will come at the end of this year. That will be the end of the 39-year casino monopoly run by Sociedade de Turismo e Diversoes de Macau, or STDM, a consortium of Hong Kong and Macau investors and 5%-owned by Hong Kong-listed Shun Tak Holdings Ltd. The monopoly dominates the Macau economy.

 

Approved in outline in late July, Macau’s legislators are expected to give the final go-ahead to the new legislative framework …

MGM Mirage plans to start an Internet casino next month, becoming the first United States casino to confront the challenges involved in offering blackjack, roulette and craps to gamblers on home computers.

 

The casino, whose computer operations will be based on the Isle of Man, a tiny island in the Irish Sea, will initially have a policy of refusing bets from residents of the United States, where it is illegal to offer gambling online.

 

The company will use new software and require proof of foreign residence in an effort to restrict betting to people over the age of 18 who are in a handful of European countries — no small task, given the challenge of knowing who and where someone is on the Internet.

 

MGM’s credibility and its license to operate are very much on the line. Regulators in some states — particularly in Nevada, where MGM …
