Is Online Sports Betting Legal?

The operators of Casino City, a website portal to online gambling sites, sued the Justice Department in 2004, and the U.S. The court said, “The government’s interest is specifically directed towards the advertising of illegal activity, namely Internet gambling.”

Because of these legislative battles, the issue of the legality of Internet gambling isn’t quite clear to most people, although it is currently illegal. The 5th U.S. In December 2007, the W.T.O.

Everyone has a different opinion about what the law actually says in regard to the legality of online sports betting in the United States. District Court for the Middle District of Louisiana dismissed the case. And with the W.T.O. So Lawrence Walters, an Internet gambling law attorney, stated that the bill has no impact on an individual gambler’s activity. Barney Frank sought to legalize Internet gambling in 2007, by introducing the Internet Gambling Regulation and Enforcement Act. has made some minor trade concessions to some other countries to exclude gambling services from an agreement signed in 1994, by revising the original agreement.. For many years, the United States argued against the legality of Internet gambling by citing the Interstate Wire Act of 1961, which was created to prohibit sports gambling between states using a telephone. has continued to uphold the ruling. members. In 2002, two Internet gamblers sued credit card companies after running up debts by betting on casino games. Justice Department saw things differently, and claimed that the Wire Act relates to all forms of Internet gambling. ban on Internet gambling violates their rights at W.T.O. McDermott said that an independent accounting firm had estimated that if Internet gambling is regulated, the United States could take in $3.1 billion to $15.2 billion in the first five years, and anywhere up to $42.8 billion in the first 10 years.

In 2006, more legislative steps were taken with the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act, which prohibits Americans from using credit cards, checks, of electronic fund transfers to finance Internet gambling. “The bill is centered on restricting certain financial transactions,” Walters said, “requiring that banks identify and block transactions going through their servers and their systems, and requiring that the actual sites, the Internet gambling sites, stop and block these transactions.”

Foreign influence has come to bear on the issue as well, with Antigua and Barbuda, members of the World Trade Organization, saying that the U.S. trademark and copyright laws.

However, the U.S. But the act deals only with how the gaming accounts are funded, not whether the actual betting is legal or not. Let’s have a look…

Whether or not Internet gambling is legal is a complex issue. James McDermott introduced a companion bill, the Internet Gambling Regulation and Tax Enforcement Act, which deals with how to regulate online betting sites and how to collect a tax on all wagers made. The organization ruled in favor of the two countries, the U.S. But because the Internet hadn’t been invented when that act was implemented, many legal experts nowadays have questioned whether that law pertains to the Internet or not.

Also, the Wire Act wasn’t specific enough to clarify whether it pertained to all forms of gambling or wagering only on sporting events. appealed the ruling, and the W.T.O. Circuit Court of Appeals dismissed the case, saying that the Wire Act only applied to sporting events.

Rep. But no arrests have ever been made in the United States for simply placing bets online. awarded Antigua and Barbuda $21 million in trade sanctions, which will allow the country the right to penalize U.S. Rep. ruling, that will probably not change anytime soon.

10 Tips for Your First Trip to a Poker Room

being used as “card protectors”).  Also, don’t remove your cards from the table, take them out of view of the dealer or drop them on the floor.

Speak with the Floor Supervisor or Brush and see what Texas Hold ‘Em games are running…or Omaha, Stud, or whatever poker game you want to play.  Let them know that this is the first time you’ve been to their poker room and ask for a copy of the House Rules or at least ask if there are any house rules that you should be aware of (betting lines, posting, bad beat jackpot rules, etc.).

11)  Have fun!

5)  Always state your action clearly

Be deliberate and think about what you are doing, and do what you feel is best.  Don’t let the other poker players influence how you play.  Everyone plays poker a little differently, so find your own style and go with it.  Don’t let the table coach intimidate or embarrass you…he’s typically full of it and just embarrassing himself anyway.

Socialize with the other players and have a good time!  If playing poker was a drag who would do it in the first place?

3)  Get your chips and observe the game

4)  Post (or wait)

When it’s your turn, make sure you let everyone know exactly what you want to do.  State your intentions so they don’t have to be interpreted.  Don’t be timid, just say what you want to do loud enough so the dealer and other players can hear you.  It will make things easier for you and everyone else.  Stating your intentions clearly is very important. if you want to avoid disagreements and arguments.

OK, 11 Tips….

1)  Go right up to the poker podium

10)  Take your time at the table

7)  Keep your chips in neat stacks – 20 chips high.

6)  Keep you cards visible and protected at all times

It’s so frustrating when a poker player has to be told repeatedly by the dealer or other players that it’s his turn to act, how much the bet is, or who raised.  Be social, of course, but also follow the action and know what’s going on.  Plus, when you know where the action is you are actually protecting your own action, which is a whole other discussion..

9)  Hold onto your cards until the pot is pushed toward you

When you win a pot, MAKE SURE that the pot is being pushed to you before giving up your cards.  This will make sure that your hand won and that there is no disagreement about who won and who gets the pot.  

This is just normal for most players.  It’ll make betting easier and makes it easy to tell how much you have in front of you.  You could just have a mound of chips of assorted values in a big pile in front of you, but that’s just bad poker etiquette.

2)  Get on the waiting list

When you get your seat, you can post the amount of the Big Blind to get a hand right away.  Or you can wait for the Big Blind to reach your position to start playing then.  I prefer to just post and start playing from almost any position, but if you want to settle into your seat and get comfortable that’s fine too.

8)  Follow the action and pay attention. Don’t start in a big game if it’s your first time playing poker in a casino or card room.  Get on the list for a 2/4 or 3/6 Limit game if they’re running.  You’ll be able to get comfortable with the flow of a poker game in a card room without risking your life savings.  I wouldn’t go right into a 1/2 No Limit game or a 10/20 Limit game on your first trip to the card room unless you’re pretty confident.

Get your chips from the cashier when you’re waiting.  You’ll just have to wait for the dealer or the brush to get them for you when you get called for your seat anyway, so get them now and save a little time.  Don’t buy in for too much either.  Take it a little slow at first and only bring “disposable” money that you can afford to play poker with.  Maybe buy in for $50 or $100 if you get into a 2/4 or 3/6 Hold ‘Em game.

Concealing your cards under your hands or behind your stack of chips will lead to problems.  Leave your cards in front of your stack of chips and keep a finger or two on them to protect them from being mucked and killed accidentally.  You can put a trinket or a chip on top of your cards, but the absolute best way to protect them is to have them under your fingers (I’m not a big fan of trinkets, medallions, rocks, miniature statues, etc

“We’ve got quite a bit of danger on that go-undefeated prop,” Bogdanovich told Bloomberg.

oNorth Carolina, which plays Boston College in the ACC tournament’s second round Wednesday, may do so without sick big man Kennedy Meeks. The Derby and Preakness trophies, along with such pieces as horseshoes and blinkers, will be on display there.

FanAngel.com’s Shawn Fojtik told ESPN, “We have a lot in common with them. 1 seed, but the overall No. 5 overall pick to the Washington Redskins. William Hill stands to lose at least six figures if UK runs the table.

Casino-Gaming :: Poker: Strip Poker – Adding Zest to a Boring Game

Strip poker, just like any other adult game or enterprise, is regulated in most parts of the world. Poker developed hundreds of years ago, and strip poker originated from the basic game of poker. Some online strip poker sites have pictures that strip as you win, but some have real time strippers that you can view stripping via a web camera. Strip poker games can have speedy, medium or slow stripping modes. Excitement can either be withheld or let loose. Before, items of clothing are considered of special value.

Sometimes, strip poker is used as a kind of foreplay and sometimes it is considered as a way of flirting. Strip poker is played like a regular poker game. Also, because of the advent of cyber online technology, strip poker is already available online. Strip poker has been with us for ages, and contrary to popular belief, strip poker is originally not a sensual, erotic game. Some strip poker games have poker chips, money bets and stripping all combined in the touch of a button, or click of a mouse. There are as many strip poker variations as regular poker game variations.

Because of strip poker’s popularity, there have been thousand of sites dedicated to the game. Speedy strip poker games can start like a regular poker game, but everyone (except the winner of course) removes an item of clothing. And it is very unlikely to see strip poker in the Olympic games! Although, we all know that you’d love to see strip poker players from all over the world battle out for the gold medal.

Strip poker is just like any other poker game. The difference in playing strip poker is that players strip items of clothing when they lose a bet. This is to take back their cash from the winning opponent. The slowest way of stripping via a strip poker game is when only the person with the lowest poker score will be the one who will strip.

There are countless variations of this game. Through a hefty credit card application and registration, one can avail of hours of online strip poker gaming. Some more liberal nations, such as those in Europe have strip poker TV shows! The difference between that and American strip poker shows is that the Euro version allows total nakedness via a TV broadcast!

Whether you are playing strip poker for your foreplay, or as a form of a sexual tease, whether you are playing strip poker party version or just adding the element of stripping to a rather boring game, no one can contest the hours of enjoyment that can only be attributed to poker… However, stripping in a strip poker game will most likely be for the benefit of the game only, and not just about the stripping per se.. But strip poker sometimes entice non-poker players to get hooked in the game, a feat that cannot be done by regular poker games. This is a very fast way and very good excuse for stripping naked, not to mention this will give you great motivation in playing poker. It can bring fun back to your poker games. It can range from intimate poker play, to party poker type games. Because poker enables one to win while others are losing, the losers then can bet their clothing. Strip poker adds zest to a dying party. This is yet another slow method–if your only objective is to strip. One variation even makes use of poker chips and that when you lose all your poker chips, you will be required to bet your clothing. Some strip poker sites even has strippers available online. However, this is a for adults only event. In Jamaica, there is even a strip poker international competition! They employed 4 super models to play strip poker, and the winner takes on serious money. Medium mode stripping in a strip poker game means that the winner is the only person who is not stripping, but the losers have the option to buy back clothes in the coming rounds. Strip poker that is!

New gambling act delayed a month.

It may be they are beginning to understand the potential difficulties into which they have been put by the Gambling Commission in respect of this new licensing regime.”

The Gambling (Licensing Advertising) Act, under which remote gambling operators would have to obtain a licence from the Gambling Commission in order to offer their services to British consumers, had been due to come into effect on Wednesday.

Analyst Ivor Jones of Numis has long held the view the government’s plans would be the subject of a successful legal challenge, and he said in a note: “We believe the proposed regime is unlawful in European law and we interpret this delay as a sign of lack of confidence on the part of the government.”

A spokesperson for the Department for Culture, Media and Sport said: “We remain fully confident of our case and of the significant benefits to consumer protection the act will bring.

Following a two-day hearing, Mr Justice Green said on Wednesday he did not expect to be in a position to give a judgement before the start date as the issues involved needed much consideration.

THE government said yesterday it was still confident about the legality of its new regime for gambling regulation, despite delaying its introduction by a month.

As a result, the government said the act would now come into force on November 1 to relieve the pressure on the judge.

The GBGA represents the household names who have based themselves in the territory to offer remote gambling, although William Hill and Ladbrokes have distanced themselves from the action.

A GBGA statement said: “We welcome this extremely sensible step from the government, which at least holds the ring for a short period.

Paul Phua was Arrested in Malaysia for Same Offense as in US

One man was charged with a lesser crime and deported. The other five men were charged with crimes but signed plea bargains after implicating Paul Phua.

Eventually the staff at Caesars noticed the activity and authorities were alerted.

In June 2014, Phua and 17 other men were arrested in Hong Kong for running an illegal sports betting ring for the Brazilian World Cup matches.

Phua’s lawyers are contesting the charges and mounting a very heavy defense.

News of Phua’s misdeeds have cause a bit of an uproar in Malaysia.

David Chesnoff, who is Phua’s attorney, denies the bribing allegations saying they were only found using illegally obtained evidence.

To enter the rooms at Caesars, the FBI posed as Geek Squad technicians under the guise of fixing internet problems.

It is also believed by the FBI that Phua plays a role in IBCBet, one of the biggest sports gambling agencies in the world.

Phua and the other men rented three luxury suites at Caesars where they set up equipment to monitor World Cup matches and establish a sports betting ring.

Though the former Macau junket operator had the support of professional players like Phil Ivey, Andrew Robl and Tom Dwan during his initial arrest last year, it turns out he has been down a similar road before.

He was allegedly running an illegal sports gambling ring centered on the European Championship soccer tournament.

However, the chief of police in Kuala Lumpur said he had warned the FBI about Phua’s possible connections to the 14k Chinese triad in 2008.

Repeat Offender

Independent news outlet Malaysiakini reports that Wei-seng “Paul” Phua, who is a native to Malaysia from Sarawak, was arrested in 2004.

He reportedly left for Vietnam to escape any creditors or people that lost money when the gambling operation was busted.

While Hamidi was vague on what kind of assistance Phua was providing, he had written to the FBI saying Phua would be welcomed back to Malaysia as his services were still needed.

Paul Phua was Arrested on Same OffensePaul Phua, who is accused of running an illegal sports betting ring in Las Vegas for the World Cup last July, convicted the same offense in Malaysia in 2004. (Image: TheStar.Com.my)

Currently, Paul and Darren are the only two defendants still awaiting trial in Las Vegas.

Even with political pressure and a possible police probe, Hamidi declines to comment on how Phua provides Malaysia with assistance in national security.

The computers claimed during the police bust of Phua’s operation revealed that HK$2.7 billion ($3.5 million) was taken in wagers.

Phua on the Defense

Years ago, Paul Phua was convicted of the exact same offense in Malaysia.

Phua was even barred from returning to Malaysia during the 2008 World Cup.

The following month, Paul, his 23-year-old son Darren and six other men were arrested at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas.

13 Malaysian men were deported while the five men from China faced criminal charges.

According to the attorneys, the FBI needed a warrant to search the hotel suites and also serve it.

Hamidi also claimed that any association Phua had with Chinese organized crime was mere speculation.

Paul Phua is currently on trial in the US for running an illegal sports betting operation in Las Vegas during the world cup.

Another computer record also suggested Phua’s operation had taken $13 million in rake for the illegal activities.

If they didn’t have those, then Phua needed to give permission for the rooms to be searched.

In December 2014, Ahmad Zahid Hamidi, Malaysia’s Minister of Home Affairs, revealed that Phua was helping the government on matters of national security.

Multiple Arrests

For his crimes Phua had to pay a large fine where he then proceeded to leave the country soon after the conviction.

Instant messages sent by Darren Phua also suggest that Paul had secured his Macau release by bribing local police.

Paddy Power spokesperson Sharon McHugh talked to BettingPro, a betting site, about the novelty bet. 

Actor Bradley Cooper (12-1), Black Eyed Peas member Will.I.am (16-1) and Ryan Reynolds (20-1) round out the top five of bachelors López might be inclined to pick from.

Next up, bookies have J.Lo’s ex-boyfriend Sean “P.

Who will win J.Lo’s heart?

The site says that the bet “applies to the first romantic relationship officially confirmed by a spokesperson for Jennifer Lopez by end 2012 following her split from her husband.”

Levy broke his silence about his relationship with López but that hasn’t stopped the story from spreading after their steamy video shoot in Mexico for her song, “I’m Into You.”

Other notables are Pitbull (25-1), who was featured in her video for “On the Floor,” Simon Cowell (33-1), who left American Idol and created an opening for López, and the wacky Charlie Sheen, who recently snagged a sitcom deal with TBS and is a dark horse for her hand at 200-1 odds.

William Levy? P. “She always bounces back!”

But that doesn’t mean that all hope is lost for her soon-to-be ex-husband. 

Novela heartthrob William Levy – no surprise here! – leads the pack at 8/11 odds after rumors heated up about a possible relationship between him and the Puerto Rican star.. The odds may have something to do with recent reports that López and Diddy had dinner together in New York.

“I think everyone was shocked to hear of J-Lo’s marriage breakdown but we’re sure she won’t be long getting her famous booty in gear and finding a new love,” McHugh said
