Internet gaming is dead. Long live Internet gaming.
The U.S. Justice Department’s recent opinion that “federal law prohibits gambling over the Internet’’ was not unexpected. Affirming earlier interpretations of the 1962 Wire Act, the Bush administration simply reiterated existing policy.
Now that Nevada gamers know the ground rules, they are proceeding on several fronts.
- Overseas. MGM Mirage, the Venetian and Station Casinos continue to move forward with Net ventures based in Europe, which permits online gaming.
- In Nevada. Since the Justice decision has no effect on in-state gaming, Nevada casinos are developing a variety of in-room and intra-property products.
- In Congress. The Wire Act was written by Congress. So it can be rewritten by Congress. And with states looking for new income sources, experts predicts that interactive gaming will be part of the tax mix.
Dennis Neilander, chairman of the state UFABet Gaming Control Board, said Nevada will continue to explore all options available to casinos. The Legislature has already authorized Internet gambling and regulation and testing will go forward, officials said.
Meantime, MGM Mirage is pumping some $20 million into its Internet betting site on Britain’s tiny Isle of Man. Last month, GamingToday reported that MGM Mirage and WagerWorks combined to launch another Isle of Man site, HardRockCasino.com.
Venetian Casino Resort Athens LLC has applied for an Internet gambling license in Alderney in the British Channel Islands. The company owned by Sheldon Adelson did not reveal its partners.

Ken Uston was one of the most colorful and influential people in the history of the game of Blackjack. He and his teams were famous for making money from the casinos by counting cards, using computers, etc.. He was personally famous for the depth and intensity of his legal challenges of the casinos’ perceived right to exclude he and his teammates from playing there. This book is a collection of his several times a year newsletters which primarily chronicle his legal battles against the casinos of Atlantic City, NJ in an attempt to restore his right to play Blackjack during the early 1980s.
The book is simply the binding of all 13 of these newsletters into a single volume, with a forward describing the conditions of the time, a reprint of his paper Does the Gaming Industry Have (or Need) a Conscience? and his tongue-in-cheek predictions about the future of the game of Blackjack. Aside from the story of the legal battles, these newsletters contained information on the current Blackjack conditions in the Atlantic City casinos and elsewhere, casino countermeasures and general casino news, the use of computers to beat Blackjack, various rules and special offers of interest to Blackjack players, etc.. Much of this information was valuable at the time, but is merely of minor historical note now. However, the story of his legal battles is of serious historical significance in this history of Blackjack and casino gambling in general.

It takes only a little longer to read the 1,472 pages of the Leo Tolstoy novel “War and Peace” than it does to analyze the numerous Super Bowl proposition bets authored by Las Vegas sports book directors.
The New England Patriots are 7-point favorites over the Philadelphia Eagles in Sunday’s game at Jacksonville, Fla.
Don’t care to place a wager on that? No problem.
“If you don’t have an opinion on the game, we’ll give you one,” Las Vegas Hilton sports book director Jay Kornegay said. “It doesn’t matter if you’re an educated bettor or a novice. These props are another opportunity.”
The Hilton has posted more than 250 prop bets, some bland and some that suggest the exorbitance of it is getting out of hand. But this is the year’s biggest betting event in Las Vegas, and imagine if everyone was restricted to drinking light beer on New Year’s Eve.
“It’s something that people are definitely wanting,” said Kornegay, who remembers posting just 15 props on the Super Bowl when he was at the Imperial Palace 15 years ago.
Of the variety of props offered in town, there is one obvious omission: Will Patriots safety Rodney Harrison put the hammer down on Eagles wide receiver Freddie Mitchell?
After making disrespectful comments about Harrison and the New England secondary, Mitchell is under the microscope. But the posted totals for his receptions (2 1/2) and receiving yards (43 1/2) indicate he likely will be a minor factor.
One of the simplest …

The end to an arduous 22-year campaign for truth surrounding the Hillsborough disaster could at last be in sight as the UK government has confirmed it will release all contemporary documents relating to the day in question.
After a 139,000-strong online petition and a moving parliamentary debate led Home Secretary Theresa May to announce up to 300,000 files will be released.
The relatives of the 96 Liverpool fans who died at the 1989 FA Cup semi-final have maintained a relentless campaign for government minutes to be Togel Hongkong publicised, to prove once and for all that Reds fans were innocent and that South Yorkshire police alone were to blame for the tragedy and lied to cover the fact up.
While the famous Taylor Report, which paved the way for the all-seater stadia of the Premier League we have today, exonerated the supporters and confirmed the police were responsible for the crowd control which turned fatal, the South Yorkshire force’s role in spreading misinformation has never been confirmed officially.
What seems clear is that the policeman in charge of opening the gates that April day, David Duckenfield, tried to cover his back by putting out stories to the FA, government and press of drunken and rowdy Liverpool fans barging their way into the Leppings Lane end and crushing their colleagues to death.
This dishonest spin was taken up and amplified by a Rupert Murdoch tabloid and a Conservative government already hostile to football and its fan …
It was 1988 and a politically-attuned sixth-former was arguing with a rugby-mad friend another over whether apartheid South Africa should be readmitted to international sport.
Exasperated with the ban on the Springboks, which he believed was ruining his favourite game at international level, the rugger-bugger insisted to me, “I think politics should keep out of sport!” Oh, if only.
Politics certainly has tampered with the Beautiful Game too often. Benito Mussolini made the Azzurri wear black shirts at the 1934 World Cup in honour of his fascist movement. Hitler assumed the more talented Austrian wunderteam into a greater German eleven, losing the talents of Matthias Sindelar and others. Then there was the Argentine junta’s manipulation of the 1978 World Cup, Silvio Berlusconi’s use of A.C. Milan as a springboard for his political career and so on.
As football exerts such a strong emotional Togel Hongkong pull on so many people, it is a wonder more politicians do not ally themselves with a successful club or national team.
The players are often the victims, from the England eleven forced by the British ambassador to give Nazi salutes in Berlin in 1938 to the talented Yugoslavia team forced to exit Euro ’92 before a ball had been kicked, to Israel’s national team who, absurdly, play in UEFA competition instead of the AFC.
This month the US axed a planned friendly in Cairo, leaving its players without a February friendly. The USSF had no option but to cancel. …
Lee Young-pyo congratulates Lee keun-ho
There was a moment during Wednesday’s World Cup qualification match between South Korea and UAE in Seoul that may prove to be a turning point in the team’s fortunes.
Korea dominated the match at Seoul World Cup Stadium, just like they had numerous times in the past. With 20 minutes of the match remaining, it was 2-0 and really should have been more. Chances had been missed, flying saves made and woodwork whacked. Despite that, at least two goals had been scored and 2-0 would have been acceptable prior to the match.
Then, as happened against Jordan in the Pkv Poker previous round of qualification and against Iran and Syria in Asian Cup qualification, Korea followed domination and missed chances by giving away a goal in comical circumstances.
Facing his own goal at the edge of the penalty area, Cho Yong-hyong, under pressure from Islam Salem, elected to turn and try to dribble past the UAE attacker instead of booting the ball into touch. Predictably, Salem took the ball, dribbled round startled goalkeeper Jugn Sung-ryong to score.
The next five minutes were nervy and most of the fans fully expected a desperate fight to protect the three points.Unlike in the past however, a Korean striker was around to take some pressure off the team with clinical finishing.
Lee Keun-ho has been scoring goals for Daegu for two seasons now and has been on the fringes of the national …
My last memories of seeing Korea were dashing from the stadium in Daejon as fireworks lit up the sky and 40,000 Koreans went crazy after they defeated Italy. Arriving in the early hours back in Seoul the whole city was out on the streets celebrating. Moving on four years and a lot of those present then have caught football fever and they are over here in Germany. I didn’t realise the relevance back in 2002 but I now suppose that the country’s name is derived from its passion for choreography.
In Leipzig town centre two troupes entertained the “reds” gathered and encouraged everyone to join in their singing and dancing routines. Before each song the words were clearly recited and the dance moves to be used were demonstrated to all those Pkv Poker present so they could join in. Those present to a man (well almost) joined in the festivities.
At the stadium the same organisation was shown as they displayed a banner with a message (sorry it was in Korean) and then for the anthem unfurled the national flag, which they then swayed from side to side. At the other side of the stadium another flag was unfurled and I could swear it was swaying in time with the other flag. Throughout the game the coordinators of this support could be seen giving orders as to what was to happen next and the provided a wall of sound that continued throughout the game, no matter …
