Kyl casino

Kyl tried to attach an online gaming restriction to a federal spending package but an unnamed Democrat objected to such a move and stalled the effort.

Kyl wants to require U.S. banks and credit card companies to reject gambling payments to offshore casinos. That is aimed at cutting off U.S. consumer access to offshore casinos.

Kyl worries those casinos are tied to organized crime, drug cartel and terrorist network money laundering operations.

Sen. Barbara Mikulski, D-Md., announced the objection that halted Kyl's effort but would not name the lawmaker.

The Arizona Republican pledged to keep working on the issue, which has failed to gain final passage out of Congress in recent years.

Kyl is also pushing for additional federal funds to help investigate fake IDs produced by illegal immigrants and smugglers.

Meanwhile, Kyl and fellow Arizona Sen. John McCain helped defeat a proposal that would have prohibited the weakening of U.S. laws that protect against unfair trade practices.

Sen. Byron Dorgan, D-N.D., pushed for the trade protection, arguing it help protect U.S. businesses and markets from unfair import dumping. Free trade skeptics worry about the Chinese and others dumping cheap products on the U.S. market in order to gain advantages over U.S. firms.

Business groups, free trade advocates and the Bush administration opposed the measure, arguing it will hamstring free trade negotiations and agreements.

Kyl and McCain -- both Republicans -- are strong free trade backers.

wireless casinos

We will not likely see cell phone wagering and PDA platforms in the early days of this new form of gaming, although that may be a possibility at a later date, when issues around underage gambling and authorized usage areas can be addressed on such devices. Initially, the most likely form of WiFi fun appears to be a solution developed by Diamond iTech of Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

Diamond iTech, or Diamond I, as they are commonly known, have developed a system of hand-held gaming devices that can be checked out from casino cash cages or hotel front desks. The units are based on proprietary biometric technologies developed by Diamond I, in which buttons on the units double as fingerprint readers to restrict access of the game to authorized users only. The user’s fingerprints and account balance information are stored on a smart card issued by the casino.

Following this development, the Gaming Standards Association (GSA) had announced that an open summit had been held to discuss the future of downloadable casino games. The summit was attended by representatives of 45 companies, not including the presenting companies.

GSA President Peter DeRaedt said, "It is clear that downloadable games are the future of the gaming industry; however, the potential is not without challenges for regulators, operators and manufacturers. We created this open forum to hear ideas from across the spectrum, enabling GSA's BOB committee to create the best possible solutions so that the future of downloadable games can become a reality"

Online casinos

Online casinos can be divided into two groups based on their interface: Flash-based websites where users may directly play casino games without loading any software to the local computer or Download-based online casinos, which are more common. On these websites users have to download certain software to play casino games. After installing the software, it connects to the casino service provider and handles contact without browser support. An advantage of these compared to Flash-based online casinos is speed, since it does not need to load graphics from the Internet because all multimedia is inside the downloaded software.

resonsible gambling

The Jackpot Factory Group a leading online casino group, announced today that it has successfully implemented a responsible gaming program formulated by the eCommerce and Online Gaming Regulation and Assurance (eCOGRA). The Microgaming powered casino group, representing All Slots Casino, All Jackpots Casino, First Web Casino, and Wild Jack Casino and Poker, feels that it is imperative for the online casino industry to act in a proactive and responsible manner on the issue of responsible gaming.

In compliance with eCOGRA, all Jackpot Factory Group casinos offer advice on how to gamble in a responsible manner and how to detect potential gambling problems.

'The Jackpot Factory Group cares first and foremost about our players. As such, we take the issue of responsible gaming very seriously. Our managers have been in constant discussion with eCOGRA to learn how best to implement this program. We are pleased to be a part of this important effort and proud that the high standards of integrity held by our casinos are worthy of the eCOGRA seal,' said David Brickman, Spokesperson for the Jackpot Factory Group.

poker in online casino

Royal Vegas Poker, an Internet poker site for amateur players, has agreed to participate in the Bluff Poker Tour (BPT). The BPT (www.bluffpokertour.com) is the first online poker tour ever to be attempted. Royal Vegas Poker will be giving its registered customers the chance to win a place in the tournaments, from 15th September on a weekly basis. The players who compete for tour places will also get the chance of winning a futuristic 46” Sony HDTV.

The BPT will kick off with weekly tournaments of No Limit Hold’em poker at a host of top poker site, to select the most skilled payers by awarding points to participants. The player with the most points will gain entry to three of the World Poker Tour events, whilst runners up will get a shot at buy-in seats for one of the tour events.

Royal Vegas Poker is hoping to maintain the impressive record of its previous players who have made good showings at other top poker events, such as World Series of Poker, Aussie Millions and The World Heads-Up Championship.

VIP casino online

Not only did VIPCasino scoop first place for ‘Best Player Reward Program’, Strictly Slots awarded VIP for ‘Fastest Payouts’. Casino Manager Kate Berkeley explains, “We want to not only treat our customers like VIP’s, we want them to have access to their money in a moment’s notice. We will go the extra mile to remind our customers that VIPCasino is all about the player, and the best way to say that is by rewarding them and by paying our winners as soon as possible.”

“VIPCasino has invested heavily in the 10%/1% Cash Reward Program and the VIP Premium Club which has clearly paid off,” says Strictly Slots Editor Adam Fine. “It’s the first online casino to make a high-roller incentive scheme available to every player, every month with no wagering requirements, so they truly deserve the title of best reward program.”

The Cash Reward Program is recognized as a benchmark in the industry, and is not only praised for its generosity, but for its transparency. Players at VIP Casino recognize the rewards program as the most straightforward on the net, not requiring any minimum deposit or play-through as well as being based on players whole month’s play rather than just specific days.

Tycoon casino

Another trial of this game is that after a while, the game becomes incredibly easy. This is great in a situation where the player merely wants to build up the largest and most attractive empire, but for anyone looking for a challenge, this game isn't it. It was a bit disappointing that increasing the price of some of the games right away and placing as many as I could would bring in money faster than I could spend it. To bring in more customers, a player only needs to purchase more of the land and plotting down items methodically seems to have little place in Casino Tycoon, unless the aspect a player likes most about a game is in aesthetics.

Graphics aren't all that impressive. The customers are blocky and most of the games are not detailed. Some of the animation can be interesting to watch, for a short time. The cocktail waitress delivers drinks and returns to the bar, where her tray is refilled and she waves to patrons until someone wants a drink. The dealers appear to be dealing cards and do so accurately, depending on how many gamblers are at the table. However, in what appears to be a bug, patrons would keep crossing the floor in front of the entrance over and over instead of going into the casino to spend their money. The camera angle is customizable and zooming in on a specific table or zooming out to include a large portion of the casino is available.

Music can get somewhat annoying, but the sound effects can be fun to listen to. The slot machines cha-ching and the ATM Machines make bleeping noises. Sound is nothing too special though.

Casino Tycoon might have been a great game if it had been released 2 years ago, but with the other tycoon games on the market, it falls miserably short of being any good. Graphics are sub-par and the game is not at all challenging. In the grand scheme of tycoon games, this one lacks where others don't. This means Casino Tycoon is a pass, not a play.

Yet another casino

In most situations, the player starts with an empty casino floor and some money. There are certain structures that must be built to make any money. A cashier booth is absolutely necessary. Also, helpful items like an ATM machine, restrooms, a janitorial closet and a maintenance room can be placed. There are several types of slot machines and video games, as well as gambling tables. Before a single gambling table can be placed, though, a Pit Boss Area is required. Advanced gambling tables and video machines require additional upgrades to the casino and some require gambling lessons.

Each object and structure can be somewhat personalized with a trim color. Several options are available for floor and wall coverings, to re-design the casino's appearance. There are wall hangings, couches, tables and plants for decorative purposes. Two themes also lend variety to the game, an Asian theme and a Monte Carlo theme, adding extra styles for games and service booths.

Customers are the heart and blood of making profit in any casino. Owners need their money, which means attracting them to the casino. Slot machines will get them in the front door, but to keep them, restaurants, hotels, gambling tables and bathrooms are good ideas. Emoticlouds, pictures that float above the guests heads periodically, will convey what they desire and their current thoughts can be viewed in the guest information screen.

There are two interesting types of interaction with the game. The first involves security cameras, guards and thieves. Once security cameras are placed around the casino, the player can look through the camera to try to detect thieves. Once detected, these thieves will have a thief emoticloud above their head and their outfit will be replaced with prison stripes. By clicking on the handcuffs, the thief is then escorted out of the casino. The second notable interaction is with the first aid station. Periodically, patrons may have heart attacks, and if the medic can get to the person before the devil, a symbol of death in Casino Tycoon, they will save that persons life. However, if the devil reaches the customer first, that customer will go poof ? and the overall number of customers the player has will decrease.
