French closing in on Internet gambling

Party Gaming, the online gambling group, quietly closed its website to French customers last Friday without telling investors, the Guardian has learned. Just three days later one of the firm’s largest shareholders sold 123 million shares.

togel Holdings and others are also believed to have frozen efforts to target the French market. Meanwhile, authorities in Paris have requested interviews with executives from an estimated 20 companies – said not to include Party Gaming, over the legality of their marketing activities in France.

Party Gaming, which reports its full-year results tomorrow, refused to comment on its reasons for the move. The toughening French stance raises the prospect of a co-coordinated crackdown on offshore-licensed gambling groups similar to that launched by the US department of justice last year.

France’s position appears to be at odds with European competition rules on gambling, which many offshore operators hope will be strengthened next week with publication of a landmark judgment from the European court of justice.

But industry insiders are wary that France has stepped up lobbying efforts in Brussels, fearing that open competition – particularly from online firms based in offshore tax havens – could destroy the PMU French monopoly on which domestic horse racing relies for funding.

One industry source estimated that France could generate between 5% and 10% of Party Gaming’s continuing revenues following the closure of its US business last autumn. Another suggested France must contribute less than 5% to revenues or Party Gaming would have been forced to make a stock market announcement. The company was one of the first online operators to provide betting services via a French language website. Last summer it acquired sports betting site Game bookers, a well-established brand in France. Industry insiders said Party Gaming’s French business had been viewed as having huge potential for …

Ultimate-Bet Leaderboards – Current Leaders May 28th

 

It is Wednesday May 28th, and another champion was crowned in the weekly Ultimate Bet MTT leaderboards. Every week, Ultimate Bet awards its players with tournament credits and the chance to play heads up with a UB pro for $1,000 or more! For complete details of how and what you can win every week, see the first post of the UB Leaderboard by clicking here.

 

I have to start this weeks article with a little correction, or clarification. If you recall in last week’s article, scottyclark came from behind to edge out mross01 by 14 points, and capture his 2nd UB TLB win in 5 weeks. However, that isn’t entirely true. Yes he did win the week with 421.79 points, but this was his 3rd win the past 5 weeks; and 2nd win in a row! As I explained in the May 17th article, the weeks of May 7th and 14th were missed because of a technical problem. Well, I found out that during this time (the week of May 4 – May 10) scottyclark was again the top dog at UB! And if you remember, the first week of April he finished in 2nd place. So that means in the past 2 months, he has finished 1st three times, and 2nd once; how sick is this guy!

 

So did he win the money? Well, his match on May 11th was against UB pro Gary “debo34″ DeBernardi and $1,000 was on the line. Is it possible for scottyclark to lose? Of course not. Scottyclark did just as I expected, and took out debo34 in a mere 12 minutes, and pocketed himself another $1,000 TLB win. Then just 7 days later, there scottyclark sat again for another $1,000 heads up match – this time against UB pro Mark …

Info about toto hk Card Counting

Card counting is a procedure whereby a player keeps track of what cards have been dealt out of the deck (or shoe). The counter uses this information to assist him in making playing decisions. Before the reader develops any pre-conceived notions on what Card Counting really entails, let me dispel a couple of misconceptions.

Card Counting does not give you psychic-like powers to predict the next card out of the deck. What Card counting will do is give you a good indication of whether a deck is favourable or unfavourable and the extent of this favourableness or unfavourableness.

Card Counting does not involve memorizing every card that comes out of the deck. If you are envisioning Tom Cruise and Dustin Hoffman in the movie Rainman sitting at the Blackjack table memorizing every card that is dealt with special autistic powers, you are thinking of Card Counting all wrong. When you count cards, you are not keeping track of individual cards. All you are doing is keeping a relative score of high value cards (10’s and Ace’s) to low cards (2, 3, 4, 5 and 6).

Card Counting: Basic Premise
The game of toto hk is focused around 10-value cards (10’s and Face Cards) and Ace’s. Why? Because combined, they are the most plentiful card in the deck. The most basic premise of Card Counting strategy is that decks rich in 10-value cards are advantageous to the player and decks short on 10-value cards are advantageous to the Casino.

Why are decks rich in 10-value cards favourable?

There are three main reasons:

The higher the proportion of 10-value cards remaining in the deck or shoe, the greater the likelihood of drawing a Blackjack (A 10 value card and an Ace). The Dealer has the same increased chance of getting a Blackjack …

Review of High-Low-Split Poker For Advanced Players

High/low split games are very popular in many card rooms across the country. Some casinos also spread HORSE or HOSE style games, which consist of several different kinds of poker. In these formats, High/Low split games are quite common. Omaha High/Low is played as part of the Tournament of Champions format, and both Omaha High/Low and Stud High/Low events are spread as part of many major tournaments. Further, when these games are spread, they are often fairly soft, populated by weak players content to play for half of the pot. Therefore, every serious poker player should be at least proficient in both of these games.

As one might expect, this is really two books under a common cover. There are some very brief opening remarks and a shared glossary at the end. Other than this, each book stands on its own. Stud High/Low is discussed first, followed by Omaha High/Low. I’ve played a fair bit of Omaha High/Low, and so I consider myself to be a pretty good judge of writing about this game, but haven’t played Stud High/Low that many times, and while I think I understand basic winning play, I would not classify myself as an expert. Ray Zee, however, is widely considered to be one of the best poker players alive, and is certainly qualified to write a textbook on both games.

In the Stud High/Low section of the book, Zee starts by discussing what makes a good High/Low starting hand, followed by a chapter about playing one’s hand on progressive streets. Next, we receive information about various intricacies of the game, various kinds of Stud High/Low split games …

Atlantis Fortune Casino – Review

Historians have long argued about the location of the not-so-mythological Atlantis – some placing it in the Atlantic, some in the Mediterranean – and other exotic locations such as Africa and Asia, particularly Indonesia, whose islands are said to be the very peaks of the ancient lost continent. Yet most agree that it existed, as long ago as the famous Greek philosopher Plato.

No matter which account you choose to believe, most agree that Atlantis was a Paradise Lost, a truly wealthy continent in terms of both money and natural resources. It is these treasures that are remembered and recreated in the spirit of the Atlantis Fortune Casino.

Available in both Flash and download versions, Atlantis Fortune Casino also allows you to select from two currencies – US dollars and UK Pounds Sterling. A total of 87 different games can be found in the two casino versions.

Having taken the time to get the Download version, and in the spirit of things, I decided to try a unique slot only found here – the Atlantis slot. I figured that since I would be off shortly to visit the fabulous land-based Atlantic version of Atlantis in the Bahamas, I might as well get in the swing of things… but unfortunately left Atlantis – the slot version – poorer, but certainly richer for the experience.

Now one of the things I actually like to do in Vegas to kill a little time is to play those bonus/feature slots – you know, like the nickel Wheel of Fortune? Atlantis Fortune happens to have the Diamond Deal feature slot preinstalled, so I went to give this slot machine a shot.

I played this game when it first came out almost two years ago, and actually did quite well and made it to the bonus …

Taruhan tinggi dalam permainan judi Pengeluaran Sgp

Karena pendatang baru terus mengalir ke dalam permainan judi online, kasino meningkatkan taruhannya untuk mempertahankan atau meningkatkan pangsa pasar mereka.

Jika ini tidak segera terbukti dengan jumlah dan nilai bonus yang ditawarkan oleh kasino online untuk menarik pelanggan baru untuk mendaftar dengan mereka, itu pasti dapat ditemukan hanya dengan mengunjungi mesin pencari bayar per klik terbesar, Goto. .com, dan menemukan bahwa kasino menawarkan sebanyak $7,50 per KLIK hanya untuk membawa Anda ke situs mereka.

Sekarang terus terang, itu benar-benar keterlaluan – saya ragu bahwa SETIAP industri online lainnya akan pernah membayar di mana pun DEKAT jumlah itu hanya untuk membuat penjudi mengunjungi situs mereka – terutama karena mereka bahkan mungkin tidak mendaftar!

Apa yang harus dikatakan ini kepada kita?

Pertama, kasino menghasilkan uang – dan banyak lagi. Tidak ada keraguan bahwa kasino mampu membayar biaya boros semacam ini, tetapi kita harus bertanya-tanya seberapa besar dampaknya terhadap keuntungan mereka jika ribuan penjudi setiap HARI mengklik tautan itu.

Saya bahkan tidak dapat membayangkan perusahaan mana pun yang membuang puluhan ribu dolar untuk iklan setiap HARI – tetapi sekali lagi, operator yang sama ini pasti menghabiskan ribuan hari hanya untuk memasang spanduk mereka di beberapa situs besar lainnya seperti Yahoo.

Kedua, ini memberi tahu saya bahwa kasino dapat membuang-buang uang dengan tidak mengelola anggaran mereka dengan benar. Alasan satu Toto HK kasino tertentu bahkan mungkin menawar $7,50 per klik adalah karena Goto memiliki mekanisme pemantauan otomatis di mana Anda selalu dapat mengalahkan seseorang yang menawar lebih tinggi dari Anda – dan jelas bahwa beberapa kasino atau situs jahat memanfaatkan fakta ini dan untuk sementara menaikkan tawaran mereka. untuk memaksa tawaran pesaing lebih tinggi – kemudian segera menurunkan tawaran mereka ke tingkat satu sen di atas tawaran peringkat ketiga.

Terakhir, itu membuat orang bertanya-tanya berapa banyak bonus yang akan mereka tawarkan kepada pemain untuk …

Everything we all know about Marvels Avengers and Bitcoin Dice

Lego Marvel’s Avengers is shaping up to be a virtual museum of Marvel comics goodness. While the core of this game focuses on a handful of recent Marvel films – orbiting the periphery are countless references and callbacks to the comic company’s colorful past. If you ever wanted an interactive primer covering the who’s who of superhero comics, this is it. And you better believe Stan Lee makes more than a few cameos. This is also a Lego game through and through – right down to its simplistic, beat-’em-up play style. The game will be released in January of 2016 on, well, pretty much everything – but until then here’s what you need to know.

This game draws in a lot more than the first Avengers film. There are characters and locations from all across the films and comics – with an emphasis on Phase Two of Marvel’s cinematic universe. This means you’ll be clobbering your way through Avengers: Age of Ultron, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Thor: The Dark World, and more.

 

While the sections taken from the films play out in linear fashion, there are also several sandbox areas to explore. Each one – from Asgard to Manhattan – is its own little mini-open world game, complete with its own set of challenges and objectives to complete. And because this is a superhero game, there are also random acts of petty thievery that pop up as you play and will need to be stopped. Any hero (or villain) that you’ve unlocked can be used in this freeroaming sections – and there are a lot of them.

 

This is perhaps the most exciting aspect of the entire game: the roster. And it’s massive, with over a hundred heroes and villains, past and present, from Marvel’s inexhaustible stable …

Ethereum Price Thrives as Speculators Bank Big On Chinese Investors Fueling ETH Demand for Crypto Gambling

Ethereum holders will be more than pleased with the way things are going right now. The price is on the rise again, which indicated some positive momentum. At this rate, it won’t take long before Ether reaches a new all-time high value. All of this is taking place in anticipation of new exchanges listing an ETH trading pair.

ETHEREUM IS FIRING ON ALL CYLINDERS

A few days ago, the Ether price surpassed the US$225 value for a brief moment. At that time, many people assumed the price would continue to rise all the way through to US$250 and beyond. That did not happen by  any means, as prices started to plummet shortly after. Any sharp rise is followed by a sharp decline, and Ethereum is no exception. It was mainly due to Bitcoin running out of steam as well, though.

People who successfully held onto their Ethereum holdings have made the smart choice. As we mentioned in a separate article, it is of the utmost importance to hold your coins during a dip, as long as you believe in the project. Daytraders will have cut their losses, as is to be expected. The Ether price took a sharp nosedive and dropped as low as US$131.16, according to Coinmarketcap.

However, things have started to rebound these past few days. With the Bitcoin price on the rise again, all alternative currencies and assets are following a similar pattern. That is not surprising by any means, as it is the daily cycle of life in the world of cryptocurrency. As of right now, one ETH is valued at US$209.74. While that is not even close to US$225 or higher, it is evident this rally is not over yet. Patience is often rewarded, and this is especially true when it comes to cryptocurrency.

Panel probes state gaming problems – best online casino singapore

Victoria’s multi-billion-dollar gambling problem will be the target of nine major research projects to be launched today by the State Government’s Gambling Research Panel.

 

Panel chairwoman Linda Hancock said yesterday the research projects would investigate the social and economic costs of gambling and causes of problem gambling, and identify strategies to minimise harm caused by excessive gambling.

 

The research will cost about $500,000.

 

Associate Professor Hancock, director of Deakin University’s Public Policy Program, said further projects could be announced, with the results of all studies to be reported to parliament.

 

“The projects will go across the spectrum in terms of gambling in Victoria, looking at government regulation issues as well as the level of services available for problem gamblers,” Professor Hancock said.

 

Today’s announcement of research projects comes just days after the government revealed that Victorians lost $2.36 billion on poker machines in the last financial year – a $200 million increase on the previous year.

 

Gaming Minister John Pandazopoulos, who has come under pressure for failing to halt gaming losses, created the panel last year to provide the government with research independent of the gaming regulator, the Victorian Casino and Gaming Authority.

 

The panel, which includes Monash University’s head of sociology, Christopher Chamberlain, and Victoria University of Technology chancellor Peter Laver, will have a large budget from which to commission and publish research.

 

When announcing the panel members in October last year, Mr Pandazopoulos said the panel would be able to draw money from the government’s Community Support Fund, which gets 8 per cent of all gaming-machine losses in Victorian hotels.

 

Opposition gaming spokesman pin up casino Ted Baillieu again attacked the government’s gaming policies yesterday, saying it was interested only in “cosmetic solutions” to problem gambling.
