New Gambling Reforms in AU, Poker Live Sportsbetting Ban

March 24, 2017 · Filed Under Gambler's Report, Online Gambling News 

Online Poker and Live Sports Betting Now Banned in Australia, as New Reforms Claim Match Fixing Problematic

Loopholes concerning the ban of online poker and sports betting in Australia has caused the Federal Parliament to shut-down the activities outlawing or banning any online participation for both gambling sectors. The reason for the immediate ban is due to new gambling laws being pass by the Senate on Tuesday.

After the Review of Illegal Offshore Wagering in 2015 the Interactive Gambling Amendment Bill 2016 came about. Recommendations from the 2016 bill is to tighten up the laws concerning online gambling. This is where the 2001 Interactive Gambling Act comes into play. Since this particular bill had already implemented banning on all online gambling activities including roulette, blackjack and poker, it is what was able to close the loopholes for the said activities.

Liberal Democrats Senator David Leyonhjelm told reporters that the whole thing is “stupid”! He said “If you want to play poker, there are lots of opportunities in Australia, at casinos and tournaments. It’s not as if there isn’t a great deal of poker playing already, but they’re just stopping it online. The whole world is online now.”

Leyonhjelm claims the changes made are ineffective and unnecessary, in the video below he shares his views on the latest gambling reforms.

David Leyonhjelm on online gambling and the nanny state

There's no way I can top my last video (tonight) but I did also talk about online gambling today.Here's the video.Australia loves to ban things. This nonsense must end.

TEN Atlantic City’s New Social Online Casino, Is Real Money Next?

March 22, 2017 · Filed Under Gambler's Report, Online Gambling News 

Is it Possible Glenn Straub Could be Opening a Real Money Gambling Site?

There’s been some speculation over what Glenn Straub’s intentions are since his purchase of the failed Revel Casino in Atlantic City a couple years ago. Straub didn’t have the easiest of transactions purchasing the property with everything standing against him, but everything eventually worked out. Now, some are saying Straub may have some unconfirmed intentions on opening up an online gambling site.

The recent launch of the TEN social casino website is what initiated the speculation that Straub is leaning towards a real money site, not just social. The GAN powered social site already holds a transactional waiver issued by the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement, and is able to offer real money activities if they are in conjunction with a land-based New Jersey casino, but Straub decided against that plan after dealing with the unpleasant results of trying to acquire a license with authorities.

The Play.TenACNJ.com site is what has local observers reviewing as Straub’s precursor to adventure off in the real money play site side This will only be possible if TEN can obtain the licensing needed to partner with Straub as a land-based provider.

MGM Resorts Files Trademark Violations Against LiveMGM.com

March 21, 2017 · Filed Under Gambler's Report, Online Gambling News 

LiveMGM Online Casino in Trademark Violations and Identity Theft Suit with MGM Resorts

A lawsuit has been filed on behalf of MGM Resorts this past Thursday in the US District Court for the District of Nevada for incorporating the company’s trademarks. The operator of LiveMGM.com has been accused of trademark violations and identity theft however, officially no name identifying the owners of the website were given.

LiveMGM.com is offered in Chinese language and has been accused of pretending to act as an MGM Resorts. It has been reported that the LiveMGM are bold enough to utilize the MGM’s famous lion logo to impersonate “MGM and trading off of its substantial fame, goodwill and consumer recognition” that the brands name carries.

According to the lawsuit, the website is attempting to “lure players to gamble at its illicit website”. Even the homepage of the false website contained an untrue copyright notice on the bottom saying “Copyright MGM Resorts International”.

MGM is seeking punitive damages, attorney fees, court related costs, the transfer of the domain name as well as an injunction relief. Receiving the damages is going to be the hard part as is the case proven in the past with these types of lawsuits. There has been several lawsuits regarding intellectual property rights violations, but operators have been unsuccessful to collect their damages.

One thing the website owners did when creating the website or domain name was applied for privacy protection. This is a service option that is available when creating/purchasing the domain name giving privacy from the company, who in turn replaces the user’s info in the WHOIS with the info of a forwarding service.
