Fair Go Casino and New Zealand

The New Zealand Rugby Team commonly referred to as the All Blacks, demands and receives nothing but the utmost respect. Winning the the Rugby World Cup in both 2011 and 2015 and consistently ranked the number one team in the world, its difficult to grasp the fact that New Zealand has a population of only 4.6 million. Unfortunately for these 4.6 million people, New Zealand gets pushed to the side or paired with Australia. Fortunately for online casino players, Fair Go Casino is always focused on these well-educated and sophisticated gamblers. Fair Go Casino is a New Zealand facing site that offers player’s from this country an experience second to none and offers a wide range of games, bonuses and opportunities to win real money and…

Is Bitcoin Cooling Off?

We are seeing the rise in popularity of Bitcoin, and with this comes more scrutiny from institutions and governments. Unfortunately, you cannot go from 0 to 100 mph within a year and remain under the radar. On Tuesday January 16, 2018 Bitcoin lost as much as 25% of its value and is currently at $10,370 from its high of $19,783 from its high last month. One of the main reasons for this drop is the attention Bitcoin is receiving from South Korea and China. Kim Dong-Yeon, South Korea’s Finance Minister said that there is a chance that the country will shut down their crypto-currency exchanges, which include Bitcoin. This volatility in price is an indication that Bitcoin is walking a tight rope and any statement…

Reader’s Digest A sobering comment which does put into some perspective the future outcome of those who are fortunate enough, or not, to win a large sum of money. Of course, there are those who win big jackpots at the casino or those professional athletes whose contract can be considered winning the lottery.

Bitcoin Rockets to $18,052!

Okay…………this is getting a bit crazy! For anyone not living in the garage without Internet, most of you are familiar with the Crypto-Currency Bitcoin. In my last Bitcoin post on November 27, 2017, my mouth was agape when it broke $11,000. With a closing price of $18,052 on Friday, December 16, 2017 I might be ready to hang up my spurs as I’m not sure if there is a ceiling for this thing. Although if I was that sure of its continual rise I would buy some and let it ride. If you think its just a scam or one big bubble and want to bet on its collapse, now you can! The Chicago Board Options Exchange (CBOE) now allows clients to short Bitcoin futures…

Advertising Restrictions in Norway for Online Gambling

The Norwegian government, through the Culture Minister, announced plans to end marketing and advertising from international operators who use the satellite channels based outside of the country. This has already been discussed with European Union officials and is intended to begin in the Spring of 2018. There is no doubt this is a new restriction to decrease the number of gamblers in the country. But as with any countermeasure there will no doubt be another offensive by the online gambling operators to usurp this new restriction.

Bama Picked To Win Championship

Its never too early to start betting on the Bowl games and the Sugar Bowl is no exception. The match-up between the Alabama Crimson Tide and the Clemson Tigers is another war between these two rivals. The volume of betting is not surprising although how people are betting is surprising. Although being the last of the 4 teams to be selected for the CFP, the money is on the Crimson Tide to win the Championship on January 8, 2018. Either way, there is be a lot of money being bet on the Sugar Bowl and Rose Bowl as well as the Champion Game. And make sure you’re not too hungover for those two New Year’s Day Bowl games.

Problems at Mandalay Bay in Vegas

Human Nature is somewhat predictable and in the wake of one of America’s worst mass murders (58 Killed) in history, Mandalay Bay is seeing this first hand. As many large conferences are booked years in advance, the hotel/casino has not seen a drop in this type of customer, although the excitement is not what it usually is at such a large and exciting venue. Many patrons for the retail, restaurants and casino are keeping their distance, as its sometimes difficult to enjoy yourself in a place filled with overwhelming tragedy. Who knows when the name Mandalay Bay will no longer conjure up such horrific memories, but in the mean time it will be tough going for this Vegas Hotel and Casino.

NFL Extorted by Players

Not exactly Casino news, although NFL betting has been down at Vegas casinos, I felt the need to address this subject. The NFL has decided to donate $89 million  over 7 years to alleviate “social injustices” that have occurred in the past years, more specifically police brutality, and will go to organizations such as the United Negro College Fund and Dream Corps. All of this comes on the heels of NFL players who continue to kneel during the National Anthem. Most of the money will come from Breast Cancer Awareness and Salute to Service, a Veterans organization. The NFL lost any credibility it had when it let Colin Kaepernick and other players kneel (protest) during the National Anthem. Since then, the players saw a weakness…

Bitcoin Booming

On Wednesday November 29, 2017, Bitcoin clipped the $11,000 mark as this crypto-currency reaches new heights every week. One year ago on Dec 1, 2016 Bitcoin stood at $753.25 and has increased 14x in that period. What are to make of this and what is next? Should you buy, sell or hold? If I knew the answer I would be a rich man, but with my limited brain power, I will stay away from this as in my opinion its an un-exploded bomb waiting to go off.

Argentina Online Tax

The central province of Cordoba in Argentina has decided to impose a 10.5% tax on deposits for online casino play. This move is taken by the province alone and is not associated with any federal government laws or regulations. The question remains whether the other 22 provinces will follow suit or settle for the status quo.
