AFFILIATES TARGETED IN MOVE TO HALT UNLICENSED ONLINE GAMBLING
The New Jersey regulator and a number of online gambling operators licensed in the state have for some time flagged the activities of unlicensed and illegal operators as one of the reasons for the slow take-up of internet gambling in the Garden State, and now the problem is being addressed.
In addition to sending cease-and-desist warnings to the operators themselves (see previous InfoPowa reports), the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement has fired a shot across the bows of at least six affiliate marketing website owners, demanding that they remove online gambling advertising and promo links to illegal internet gambling sites accessing New Jersey players, or face civil or criminal consequences.
The intimidating letter is signed by George N. Rover, the Attorney General of New Jersey, and was reportedly sent to poker information sites like RaketheRake, PokerSource, CardsChat, Pokersites and RakeBrain.
Commenting on the warning, DGE spokeswomen Kerry Langan said the sites promote illegal gambling websites through advertising and links alongside Internet gaming sites that are authorised in New Jersey.
"We believe this may either taint legitimate sites by associating them with the illegal ones, and conversely may lend the appearance that these illegal sites are affiliated with authorized sites, Langan said.
"Among the sites that the Division asked to examine their practices and to cease and desist from promoting illegal gaming sites are: CardsChat.com, PokerSource.com, RakeBrain.com, Pokersites.com, and RaketheRake.com
"The Division feels very strongly about protecting NJ citizens from illegal Internet gaming websites. New Jersey has a strong regulatory framework in place to enable Internet gaming to be a safe reliable experience for those who wish to participate.
"Our licensing requirements ensure that only carefully vetted companies can provide Internet gaming services. These illegal sites do not offer the same protections to players and we do not want these unregulated sites being promoted with our legal, regulated sites.
"We have strict regulations in place to help prevent underage gambling as well as monitoring tools to detect possible fraud and money laundering.The Division hopes that by taking a strong stance against illegal websites and their promoters, the benefits of regulated online gaming will help drive illegal operators out of the market place and provide patrons far better protections.
"At the same time, we believe it is unfair to those companies that subjected themselves to our strict licensing and regulatory requirements to have to compete with these illegal sites and the entities which are being paid to promote them."
WORLD SERIES OF POKER FINAL TABLE KICKS OFF TODAY
16 weeks on from the 2013 World Series of Poker, the nine final table players who survived return to the felt in Las Vegas today to battle it out for the winner's millions and the prestige of taking home a WSOP main event winner's bracelet.
5 Americans, a Canadian, an Israeli, a Dutchman, and a Frenchman are all that remains of an original entry field of 6,352 players, all but one of them professional players with varying levels of experience. The odd man out is Jay Farber, a night club promoter.
Each of the finalists has already received $733,224 in prize money for making the table, and that's all the first man to fall will get...but the prize money escalates as each player is eliminated, and the top seven spots will receive over a million each, with the winner taking home $8,359,531.
"This may be the most skilled nine players at the final table," WSOP spokesman Seth Palansky said this week. "You expect that after the initial jitters, these guys will not be making amateur mistakes"
The final table composition, and individual chip counts at the start of the action, will look like this:
JC Tran (38,000,000)
Amir Lehavot (29,700,000)
Marc-Etienne McLaughlin (26,525,000)
Jay Farber (25,975,000)
Ryan Riess (25,875,000)
Sylvain Loosli (19,600,000)
Michiel Brummelhuis (11,275,000)
Mark Newhouse (7,350,000)
David Benefield (6,375,000)
Today's plan is for the finalists to play down to the last three and then break for the night, returning next day (Tuesday) to decide the winner.
WINE LOVER HAS WORLD SERIES OF POKER PLANS
One of the quirkier stories to emerge during the current World Series of Poker unfolding in Las Vegas this week is that of wine lover Geno Foschi, a Las Vegas small business owner who plans to leverage part of his rare wine collection into WSOP entry fees, according to the magazine The Drinks Business.
Foschi has been collecting wines for many years, starting in his early twenties, and is offering 38 bottles from his collection of over 600 on Craigs List in order to play poker at WSOP. With some of the big winners looking for something special with which to celebrate, Foschi's discounted lot could be in demand.
The lot, which Foschi says is worth $25,000, is on Craigs List for $13,000 and includes 13 bottles of Chteau Margaux 1984, five bottles of Chteau Lafite Rothschild 1984 and six bottles of Chteau Margaux 1982. All been stored properly and most have been owned by Foschi for more than 20 years.
Foschi said if he were to sell his wine, play in the WSOP and win, the money would go to his business.
