New banning bill in Illinois


More State law aimed at hamstringing Internet gambling is on the radar at present, this time from Illinois.


State Rep. Elizabeth Coulson is leading the charge with a Leach look-alike bill that attempts to eliminate Internet gambling by prohibiting banks and credit card companies from processing wire transfers to Internet casinos. If a bank knowingly processed such transactions, it would be fined $1,000 per offense.


And any credit card debts from Internet gambling transactions would be null and void, meaning the financial institutions wouldn’t have to pay the online casinos, and in turn, the bettor would not have to pay the financial institution.


“Basically, we would say that credit card companies don’t have to pay the Internet debt. So then, guess what, the gambling people aren’t going to want to take cards from Illinois, and then you eliminate the problem,” Coulson says.


The bill is currently awaiting a hearing in the Slot Gacor gaming committee, whose chairman, Rep. Lou Lang said more testimony and information about Internet gambling would be needed before the committee could act. Coulson attempted a similar bill last session, and it passed the House 111-0 but was then stalled in the Senate rules committee.

As a fully qualified translator and 20 years’ experience under my belt working freelance in the UK I now tend to concentrate on translating medical texts (questionnaires, patient information leaflets, SOPs) from English into my mother tongue German. But I also love stylistically demanding texts and those that give you the freedom to move away ever so slightly from the source text. Tourist brochures and marketing texts are a great favourite of mine. When I am not working I love spending time with my family, travelling and playing badminton and going to the gym to keep a healthy work/life balance.

Meningkatkan Peluang Layanan Pelanggan Anda

Apa pun yang Anda lakukan, akan ada beberapa kasino di mana Anda tidak akan menerima layanan pelanggan yang layak Anda dapatkan. Tetapi sering kali, apa yang Anda lakukan dapat memengaruhi cara Anda diperlakukan. Saat meneliti artikel ini, saya menghabiskan beberapa waktu melalui korespondensi pelanggan saya untuk melihat keadaan apa yang menyebabkan penundaan atau masalah. Saya datang dengan beberapa saran yang akan membuat hidup kami berdua sedikit lebih mudah.

Apa yang dapat Anda, pelanggan, lakukan untuk meningkatkan peluang Anda mendapatkan layanan pelanggan yang lebih baik?


Mungkin mengejutkan, saya sarankan mencoba membatasi semua korespondensi Anda ke email, dan menggunakan telepon sebagai upaya terakhir. Mengapa? Anda tidak hanya memiliki catatan korespondensi Anda, tetapi kasino juga memilikinya. Ini penting ketika berpindah dari satu Perwakilan Layanan Pelanggan ke Perwakilan Layanan Pelanggan lainnya. Selain itu, dalam banyak kasus, Anda juga akan memiliki nama orang yang membantu Anda, yang memiliki banyak manfaat. Misalnya, kecuali untuk situasi darurat, Anda dapat mengarahkan semua email Anda ke orang itu, dan, jika Anda tidak senang dengan cara Anda diperlakukan, Anda dapat memberi tahu penyelia atau manajer nama orang ini.


Sangatlah penting untuk selalu mencantumkan Togel hari ini nama lengkap dan nomor rekening pada semua korespondensi Anda. Anda akan terkejut dengan jumlah email yang diterima staf saya di mana pelanggan belum mengidentifikasi diri mereka sendiri. Itu mengingatkan saya pada iklan di TV beberapa bulan lalu yang menunjukkan seorang wanita muda yang masuk ke toko dan berkata, “Hei, Anda ingat saya? Saya membeli CD di sini beberapa bulan yang lalu.” Mengirim email tanpa mengidentifikasi siapa Anda, atau bahkan hanya menggunakan nama depan Anda, cukup banyak melakukan hal yang sama. Bayangkan berapa banyak pelanggan bernama ‘John’ di luar sana.


Bahkan memasukkan nama belakang Anda saja tidak cukup, karena tidak hanya ada banyak nama John di database, ada juga banyak nama John …

Gas Station Attendant Wins Big IDN Poker at King Neptune’s


“Those pharaohs are some of the most beautiful things I have ever seen!” says King Neptune’s ( latest progressive jackpot winner, Stephany, describing the winning screen after hitting a $144 765 Treasure Nile progressive jackpot this week.


Stephany, a gas station attendant from Colorado has been a regular player at the casino since June last year. And the happy surprises are not yet over, because the casino is taking her on a luxury, all expenses paid Mystery Weekend for two as an added bonus to show appreciation for her support.


On a date of her choosing, Stephany and her son will jet away to a fabulous mystery location that has been carefully selected by King Neptune’s. They will then spend a long weekend being thoroughly spoiled.


“During this holiday, Stephany and her son will be treated to the very best – the classiest hotel, the finest restaurants and the most exciting entertainment,” Trident E-Group spokesperson Scott Gaines said. “Every minute of the weekend will be carefully planned to ensure that she has the trip of a lifetime.”


Gaines said that the Mystery Weekend is now part of an additional package that King Neptune’s owners, Trident E-Group Casinos have pledged to any player who wins a progressive jackpot of $100,000 or more.


The big win came just after 6am Mountain Time on January 28. Stephany had been playing IDN Poker for approximately 30 minutes and had wagered a little over $100 “…just wishing and praying for a nice win”. Suddenly the screen went blue and the message ‘You have won the Progressive Jackpot’ appeared. Stunned, she sat looking at the screen first in shock, then confusion and finally calm…. but was “deliriously happy”.


Stephany says she’s not yet sure of how she will spend …

Too soon to determine smoke ban’s revenue impact

HELENA – Since Helena voters approved the clean indoor air ordinance in June, word on the street has been that business in bars and casinos has suffered greatly. Business was down as much as 60 percent at some casinos, hospitality industry officials told the IR last month.

The state recently released the first tax-collection statistics that cover some of the time the ordinance has been in effect. The smoking ordinance was in effect for only one of the three months included in the most recent figures, which cover April through June of this year. However, other cities enacting bans have shown that any economic impact is greatest immediately after the ordinance passes.

One expert says it’s impossible to draw any conclusions at all for the numbers through June.

“It’s just too early to tell,” said Paul Polzin, director of the Bureau of Business and Economic Research at the University of Montana. “You need at least one full quarter to know. Maybe they had two heavy months in April and May. There simply isn’t enough data yet.”

Steve Morris, a local restaurateur and president of the Montana Tavern Association, was out of town Tuesday and unavailable for comment.

There are, perhaps not surprisingly, several ways to read the early numbers, but none of them indicate the heavy decreases claimed by local UFABet casino owners. Again, the most recent numbers available include only one month of the ordinance; a clearer picture won’t emerge until October, when the first quarter of fiscal year 2003 (July through September) becomes available.

In Helena, the fourth quarter of this fiscal year (April through June) showed a 6.4 percent increase in gambling taxes collected over the same quarter of 2001. That’s slightly below the 7.3 percent jump from the fourth quarter of 2000 to the fourth quarter …

Ligaz11 Review of High-Low-Split Poker For Advanced Players

High/low split games are very popular in many card rooms across the country. Some casinos also spread HORSE or HOSE style games, which consist of several different kinds of poker. In these formats, High/Low split games are quite common. Omaha High/Low is played as part of the Tournament of Champions format, and both Omaha High/Low and Stud High/Low events are spread as part of many major tournaments. Further, when these games are spread, they are often fairly soft, populated by weak players content to play for half of the pot. Therefore, every serious poker player should be at least proficient in both of these games.


As one might expect, this is really two books under a common cover. There are some very brief opening remarks and a shared glossary at the end. Other than this, each book stands on its own. Stud High/Low is discussed first, followed by Omaha High/Low. I’ve played a fair bit of Omaha High/Low, and so I consider myself to be a pretty good judge of writing about this game, but haven’t played Stud High/Low that many times, and while I think I understand basic winning play, I would not classify myself as an expert. Ray Zee, however, is widely considered to be one of the best poker players alive, and is certainly qualified to write a textbook on both games.


In the Stud High/Low section of the book, Zee starts by discussing what makes a good High/Low starting hand, followed by a chapter about playing one’s hand on progressive streets. Next, we receive information about various intricacies of the game, various kinds of Stud High/Low split games one might encounter, and other skills that are important. This section ends with a quiz on the material covered, a feature I really adore in the …

Judi Qiu Qiu Onilne Uang Asli Dutch in the ditch

The latest round of European World Cup qualifiers went largely to script.

The big boys all won comfortably – Germany, Italy, Spain, France, Portugal and England all registered victories. Surprise European Championship semi-finalists Wales drew again and struggling to make it to Russia next year have probably reverted to type.

Only Switzerland and Germany have 100% records after five games. Gibraltar, Lichtenstein, Malta and San Marino kept up their pointless campaigns.

As it stands the seven automatic UEFA qualifiers will be France, Switzerland, Germany, Serbia, Poland, England, Spain, Belgium and Croatia. In the playoff berths are Sweden, Portugal, Northern Ireland, Republic of Ireland, Montenegro, Slovakia, Italy. Greece and Iceland.

Happier days for Dutch fans at World Cup 2010

The one stand-out story has to be the demise of the Netherlands, who lost 2-0 in Bulgaria and sacked coach Danny Blind afterwards.


As if failing to make it to Euro 2016 was not stunning enough for the doyens of classy soccer, the country which has produced Johan Cruyff, Ruud Gullitt, Dennis Bergkamp and Arjen Robben and who finished third at the last World Cup, now languishes fourth in their group behind France, Sweden and Bulgaria.


All is not lost. For a first half of the campaign, two wins, a draw and two losses is not qualification form but recovery is still possible. The Dutch sit only three points behind second-place Sweden and a play-off spot in Judi Qiu Qiu Onilne Uang Asli.


Their rocky road to Russia in Group A so far:


06/09/16 Sweden 1:1 Netherlands

07/10/16 Netherlands 4:1 Belarus

10/10/16 Netherlands 0:1 France

13/11/16 Luxembourg 1:3 Netherlands

25/03/17 Bulgaria 2:0 Netherlands


They will surely take three points at home to Luxembourg in their next outing before a tricky trip to Paris …

Internet poker bill mulled

Rep. Jim Kasper, R-Fargo, wants poker played over the Internet to be defined in the state Constitution as a game of skill rather than gambling.

“I submit to you that poker is much different than gambling,” Kasper told the House Judiciary Committee Tuesday. “The skill is what you do with what you are given.”

Kasper is hoping that if Internet poker is excluded from the definition of gambling, it could entice hundreds of Internet poker businesses to North Dakota, creating hundreds of millions of dollars of revenue for the state.

“This could potentially match the whole revenue stream that the state has now,” Kasper said.

His proposal is contained in House Bill 1509.

Internet poker companies currently locate in other countries because they fear a 1961 federal law that prohibits gambling over the wire.

Kasper wants to allow operations of the sites in North Dakota and fight the federal government in court if the federal officials block state law.

Some committee members were skeptical if North Dakota could win a case against the federal government, while others were wary of changing the definition of gambling.

“It’s hard for me to look at this bill and say this isn’t really gambling,” Rep. Lois Delmore, D-Grand Forks, said.

Rep. Lawrence Klemin, R-Bismarck, said that if the bill passes, the state could have to pay for costly legal fees if the federal government challenges it.

Rep. Mark Dosch, R-Bismarck, supported the bill, saying that North Dakota needs to take a chance.

“I believe that for the people of North Dakota and for the state, we need to be strong and take on this challenge and not be afraid to step out of the box,” Dosch said.

Former Gov. Art Link, a longtime opponent of gambling, testified against the bill. Link said that since …
