Nevada Awards Online Gambling Licenses To Bally And IGT
The Top Online Casino Gambling News Reporting Organization! The state of Nevada saw the writing on the wall several years ago when it came to online gambling. The future of the most lucrative gaming industry in the world was in the US, and Nevada became the first state to create online gambling regulation laws late last year.In 2012, regulators have moved swiftly towards opening these online casinos. On Thursday, Bally Technologies and International Game Technology were granted the first two online gambling licenses in Nevada. The two companies are both based in Nevada, with IGT in Reno, and Bally in Las Vegas.”This is going to open some eyes around the country that were previously blind to how quickly the online gambling movement is progressing in the country,” said Gaming Analyst Steve Schwartz. “After licenses are issued, its just a matter of months before online casinos will be running, and when that happens, expect many states to follow Nevada’s lead in regulating online gambling.”Nevada has always been ahead of the curve when it comes to gambling. They were the first in the US to offer full-scale casino gambling, and also the first state to operate sports books. Delaware has since opened their own sports books, and dozens of states have started allowing casinos in recent years. The economic recession has been one of teh driving forces behind the swiftness with which the gaming industry is growing.”Without the recession, casinos and online gambling may still have been years away in many states,” said Schwartz. “But the need to generate jobs and revenue has caused lawmakers to move in a rapid fashion. It’s only a matter of time before the US has a couple dozen states running online casinos.Next in line to license online casinos may be New Jersey. The state has already had voters approve sports betting in the last election, and lawmakers have laid the groundwork for online casinos, operated by Atlantic City casinos. The Atlantic City gaming industry has been in need of a shot in the arm, and legislators felt that sports betting and online casinos would provide that boost.According to several analysts, Nevada is expected to have online poker rooms running by the end of the year. IGT and Bally will have to show that they have the technology in place to stop underage and problem gamblers from accessing their sites, but once that is accomplished, regulators will give the go-ahead to start operating the online casinos. Table games and slots will not likely be available at the online sites until early in 2013. June 23, 2012Posted By April GardnerStaff Editor, CasinoGamblingWeb.comSubmit News!

NBA Free Agent Period Ushers In New Season Of Betting
The NBA season ended with disappointment for many fans who were rooting against the Miami Heat. Now, fans and bettors alike have turned their attention to the start of free agency, which officially begins on Sunday.Some of the biggest names in the sport are expected to be making their decisions early in the free agency process. Deron Williams is the most coveted player on the market, and he has narrowed his choice down to the New Jersey Nets and Dallas Mavericks. Which of those teams wins his services will determine the betting odds for the upcoming season.New Jersey appears to be the frontrunner, and if the Nets are able to sign Williams and lure Dwight Howard out of Orlando, they suddenly would move to the top of the betting odds for the upcoming season. Jason Kidd is rumored to be following Williams to New Jersey.If Williams makes a last minute decision to return home to Texas, the Mavericks would suddenly become the favorites in the Western Conference, joining Oklahoma City and San Antonio. Williams is set to meet with both the Nets and Mavericks on Monday, with a decision coming soon after.Other free agents that could affect the betting odds for next year include Ray Allen and Steve Nash. Allen is being courted heavily by the Heat. Kevin Garnett, Allen’s teammate the past few seasons, has already said he will resign with the Celtics. Boston has expressed interest in keeping Allen.Nash has proclaimed for the first time in recent weeks that he can see himself playing somewhere other than Phoenix next season. The Knicks are a possibility for Nash, as are the Mavericks. If Dallas loses out on Williams, sources claim they will turn their full attention to signing Nash.Two teams that will not be making many moves this off-season are the Spurs and Los Angeles Lakers. The Lakers have actively sought to trade Pau Gasol before the draft this past week, but were unable to complete a deal.The Spurs are coming off a season in which they went to the Western Conference finals after not losing a game in the first two rounds of the playoffs. San Antonio won the first two games of the finals, then were promptly swept by the Thunder over the final four games of the series.

Untamed Series Shows Big Wins
The Untamed series of online casino slot games from Microgaming are already proving popular in Microgaming powered online casinos. The All Slots online casino, powered by Microgaming’s software, has many players who have been enjoying the Untamed slot series. There have been big wins on both of the slot games in this series. Christiane P, a very lucky online casino slots player who lives in France, in a small village with a population of just 523 people, Meilhaud, won a good sum on the Untamed – Bengal Tiger slot game. The lucky player, playing at All Slots casino, won the amount of €30,375. In Queensland, Australia, Andrew C Warwick, discovered that he too is a lucky online casino slot player. Interestingly, Andrew C Warwich also comes from a small town that is situated about 150 kilometers inland from the Gold Coast, and located on the Condamine River. He won the sum of AU$12,791 when he played the other Untamed slot game, Untamed – Giant Panda. He won this sum of money while playing on the All Slots instant play online casino.

Atlantic City Casino Revenues Still Plummeting Past Recession End
Even though the recession seems to be over, Atlantic City casino revenues are still on a steady decline. While much of the US is slowly returning back from the effects of the recession, casinos in Atlantic City continue to see steady decline in their revenues. According to statistics from the New Jersey Casino Control Commission, the gaming industry in Atlantic City saw income for July drop five percent from last year’s numbers.Only the Atlantic City Hilton and the Trump Taj Mahal were able to report better business this year than in 2009. Nine other casinos suffered losses from the year previous, and those figures were significantly down from 2008.Casino operators had used the national impact of the recession as a scapegoat for much of Atlantic City’s gaming trouble, but other factors continue to ravage the area’s gambling business. Increased competition in neighboring states has ended New Jersey’s exclusivity on the East Coast, and the convenience of online casinos continues to draw players in anticipation of the opening of the US gaming market.Governor Christie has proposed a state takeover of the city’s gambling district, but it is debatable whether New Jersey will be able to reverse the direction of the devastation simply through better branding and advertising.State Senator Ray Lesniak has led the way on several bold concepts designed to rescue Atlantic City’s gaming business, including challenging the federal ban on sports betting and suggesting intrastate online gambling run by AC casinos, but the measures are opposed by powerful foes both locally and nationally.In the meantime, New Jersey’s dependable cash cow seems to have gone hooves up.
