888 Holdings And Caesars May Partner For Online Poker License

888 Holdings And Caesars May Partner For Online Poker License
Foreign online gambling companies have been positioning themselves over the past couple of years for a move into the US market. After Black Friday several months ago, many companies backed off their aggression in the US, but not 888 Holdings.Reports surfaced last week of how 888 was in advanced stages of negotiations with Caesars Entertainment to form a partnership. The two gaming giants would be positioned perfectly if and when online gambling became regulated in the US.The Gibraltar-based gaming company has been receiving good news from many different areas in recent months. The second quarter revenue figures were released and they were up nearly thirty percent. The company also acknowledged that they were considering applying for an online poker license in Nevada.The company may need to have secured funds in the future for expansion into major markets such as Spain and the US, although for the time being they are financially sound. The company understands that certain expansion efforts may be necessary to compete on a worldwide level.”It’s just we don’t want to miss no-brainer opportunities as they arise,” said Deputy Chairman of 888, Brian Mattingley.The US move would certainly be classified by many analysts as a “no-brainer.” With the countries online gambling laws in flux, the first companies to gain licenses in a newly regulated market could be in for a big payday. Several US-based companies have started to partner with foreign companies that have the platforms to immediately open up shop in the US should the laws change.Nevada legislators have already authorized online gambling, with the stipulation that no sites would be opened until the federal laws are changed. Currently there are three bills that have been proposed federally that would regulate online poker if passed.William Hill is perhaps the most successful of the foreign gaming companies, and they already have agreed to buy three sports books in Las Vegas. The company could then use the sports books and their good standing to gain an Internet gambling license when they are offered by Nevada regulators.

Guardian Series: Fifteen men gatecrash the World Series ladies’ event. How heroic
Other articles byVicky Coren You are here: Home › Poker Articles & Features › Vicky Coren › Guardian Series: Fifteen men gatecrash the World Series ladies’ event. How heroic Victoria Coren It’s quite fun, this Guardian experiment. They’re having a games slot every day – bridge, chess, that sort of thing – and I’m doing the poker one. It’s aimed at the fairly new player, who might have watched a bit of poker on TV and just started playing with their friends and wants a few tips. So for the moment in the column I’m generally advocating caution and covering basics – it’s a way of trying to help people avoid losing all their money in their first few weeks or months playing the game! If the links are going up on the Hendon Mob page, I hope I don’t get a flood of people shouting at me on the forum – ‘What do you MEAN, pass A9 before the flop?’ and that kind of thing. This isn’t complex stuff to be debated by people who have already been playing for years – it’s just start-up tips and ways not to go broke. Whatever I tell the Guardian, I’d probably stick the lot in with A9 cos I came here to gamble…” Vicky… x (Vicky is sponsored by PokerStars.com.

New US Online Gambling Taxation Bill

Friday, July 8th, 2011

New US Online Gambling Taxation Bill
Representative Jim McDermott, D-Wash., has reintroduced an online gambling taxation bill that acts as a companion bill for the anti-UIGEA (Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act) bill that was reintroduced in March 2011 by Rep. Barney Frank and Rep. John Campbell. The online gambling taxation bill will not stand by itself as a piece of legislation, but it is connected to the Barney Frank online gambling bill, and provides useful legislation for if/when the online gambling bill becomes law. The new companion bill is now known as HR 2230. It has been changed slightly from its original form to include some features that will help the authorities keep an eye out for those who may be developing online gambling addictions or may be playing under the legal age. These changes will simply make it easier for lawmakers to accept the bill from Barney Frank because these were some of the issues that had been controversial about the original online gambling bill that he had introduced. Although Barney Frank is no longer chair of the House Financial Services Committee, it is expected that the online gambling bill will move its way up in the law process as it had begun to do before the US mid-term elections. Not all who have seen the taxation bill are very pleased with it. There are those who feel that the taxation level is too high, and will therefore affect the players in the long term. Others feel that although the taxation levels are fairly high, players need not be affected by it. Online gambling operators would be expected to keep hold of the portion of a players winnings that is meant to be paid to the authorities as a tax, since players are taxed on their winnings as if they are earnings. The future of these two online gambling bills is still unclear, but they are certainly stronger as a pair than as one standalone online gambling bill.
