NJ Lobbies for Higher Penalties as PokerStars Pays $10k Fine

NJDGE fines PokerStars $10k for accepting illegal sports bets. The New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement (NJDGE) has spent the last six years regulating the most successful online gambling market in the United States. There have been ups and downs. There have been mistakes made, problems realized, and solutions conceived. Is this not to be expected when pioneering any market of such a volatile nature? One thing gaming regulators in the Garden State have learned in recent times is that the penalties for non-compliance could have – nay, should have – been set a lot higher. That was the sentiment coming out of NJDGE offices last week when it was announced that one of their most prominent licensed operators had been fined just $10,000 for violating the state’s strict sports gambling laws. PokerStars Fined $10k for Accepting Illegal Sports Bets On April 12, 2019, David L. Rebuck, Director of the … Continue reading

3 No-Brainer Tips for Picking Casino Games

Painless pointers for picking the perfect casino games. Choose to gamble at a live or online casino is not something to be undertaken without careful consideration. It’s a form of entertainment, and like most, it costs money to enjoy. Unlike most, however, it can reward money back to you – sometimes larger amounts of money than you started with. And because of this, it can also become a very costly pastime for some people; particularly those with an addictive personality. Knowing what you’re getting into – what to expect in terms of pleasure, pain and price – is the first step to having a safe and fun-filled experience. The second step is playing the right games that suit your personality and bankroll budget. That’s where I hope to be of some help.

E-Bingo Saves the Day at Jackpot City Sarnia

Electronic Bingo Games a hit at Jackpot City Bingo in Sarnia, Ontario. Throughout the ages, so many once-beloved entertainment venues have found themselves on the endangered species list. Theatrical stages have given way to movie theaters. Board games were overrun by PC and video games. More recently, the world’s love for bingo has been surpassed by the digital realm of slot machines and casino table games. The problem was amplified by a situation a bit too close to home for residents of Sarnia, Ontario. The Canadian province has witnessed the closure of dozens of bingo halls over the last few years. In Sarnia alone, gaming fans remember a time when 11 charitable bingo halls stood tall. Now, just one remains – Jackpot City Bingo on Upper Canada Drive. It wasn’t long ago the Jackpot City in Sarnia nearly saw its doors closed for good, just like all of its former … Continue reading

Can Monkeys become Problem Gamblers too?

Canadian Professor takes Simian Gambling Research to “Outdoor Lab”. Most scientists conduct their research in a lab, where they can control the environment. Experimental requisites generally call for tractability, but not always. In some cases, studying a subject in its own unencumbered environment proffers the most reliable results. That’s what one Canadian professor is banking on as he makes his way to Bali for his latest investigation. Dr. Jean-Baptiste Leca, Professor of Psychology at the University of Lethbridge in Alberta, has spent years observing the wily ways of the macaque monkeys of eastern Asia. His observations include everything from the frugivorous creatures’ knack for bartering, to famously reported incidents of female macaques humping the backs of deer in Japan. This year, his intent is to find out if the macaque can take their cultured talents to a new level in the “outdoor lab” of Indonesia’s most popular tourist destination. Canadian … Continue reading

Habanero Launches Comical Slot Machine, Mount Mazuma

Mount Mazuma Slot features hot 97.98% RTP at Habanero online casinos. It’s not often that online slot machines come along with anything better than a 96% return to player (RTP). The RTP determines what percentage a game pays out, over a long period of time, compared to what it takes in. Those typical 96% RTP slots will return, on average, $96 for every $100 wagered on them. That’s a far cry better than what you’ll find at land-based casinos, but nowhere near the best paying slot machines on the digital market. In the final days of March, Habanero Systems delivered a new online slot that not only comes with a fun, comical slot machine theme. It’s also equipped with a tantalizing RTP of 97.98%. As such, the new slots game, titled Mount Mazuma, is already attracting a great deal of attention as it erupts at Habanero-powered online casinos. Mount Mazuma … Continue reading

A Realistic Review of Roulette’s Cost

What’s better for your casino bankroll, electronic or live roulette games? I’m a strong advocate of playing casino games online. I know, some say they’re too quick, or that you don’t get the same social entertainment aspect. But those don’t have to be negatives. I find them both advantageous at times. I rarely have time to visit a land-based casino, but I can play a few games on my smartphone during lunch. Being among friends is always uplifting, but when the guy next to you smells like a brewery and yanks your sleeve every time he wins a bet, being alone doesn’t seem so bad. Then again, there are also times when playing live casino games is more beneficial than staring at a computer or mobile screen. As much as iGaming advocates like myself boast that online games are cheaper, and/or offer better payouts – I’ve said it myself countless … Continue reading
