Getting my gaming commentary game back on, with an appearance as a talking head-and-torso for a special Global Gaming Expo episode of APCW Perspectives, featuring venerable online gambling gadfly J. Todd at the mic.
My part begins at about 5:50, after J. and Becky Liggero talk about the American Gaming Association’s new push for nationwide legal sports betting. (Go teams!)
The TL;DR — Kahnawake Gaming Commission is pulling its casinos out of US markets to do business with New Jersey, further putting the squeeze on gray-market online gambling operators … and it’s probably not good that the Senate introduced SB 3376, a placeholder bill for a revised version of Sheldon Adelson’s Restoration of America’s Wire Act, um, Act, aka RAWA. Even if the new bill is going nowhere, simply having it in the legislative mix poses a threat. Oh, and happy soon-to-be 10th birthday UIGEA!
On Tilt Radio is hosting a live election-night broadcast with/for a bunch of poker people with political mindsets. I’ll be there — on air with Pokerati partners Jay Todd from This Week in Gambling and Rich Muny from the PPA … and those two will be sticking around to join Greg Raymer.
Rumor has it that J Todd is recovering from a heart attack. Could the online gambling news be that exciting? Maybe it was one too many bacon sandwiches. We also have stories from the horse racing industry, rumors about poker legislation, and another sentence in a Black Friday case.
There’s No Cheating in Online Poker! Now that we have your attention…
We thought that we should let ya know that some companies are boldly selling poker bot software for under $200, claiming big returns on your investment! Good luck with that! =0)
Our Tribute to the FBI… We just LOVE the FBI…
I mean, why wouldn’t we love the FBI? They give us so much free comedy material that we would otherwise have to write for ourselves! God bless those brave men and women fighting the tyranny of online gambling!
Washington State to be a Battleground… Again… The War Rages on…
First, it was J Todd battling the State Gambling Commission over his websites in 2006. Then our friend Nick Jenkins was actually arrested and charged with online gambling in 2007. Now, in early 2008, Attorney and poker player Lee Rousso is challenging the State’s online gambling ban in court!
