Derby Dollars Wins At Rushmore Online Casino
Derby Dollars Wins At Rushmore Online Casino By: Adam Baker, Thursday July 12th 20120 Comments   Email   PrintA player at Rushmore online casino named Carmel H from the United States won an amount of $10,606.50 wagering on the slot game Derby Dollars in June. With the possibility of the Triple Crown being won in the Belmont Stakes in June, the horse racing themed slot game Derby Dollars drew a lot of traffic that month. Carmel continued with wagering on Derby Dollars in July and was rewarded with an even bigger win of $24,673.50. Derby Dollars is a simple online slot game. The horse racing theme is depicted by appropriate graphics. The reels are set in the background of a lush green race course. The symbols are related to horse racing and include binoculars, trophy, horse, jockey and elegantly dressed lady. The horse is the wild symbol and offers a jackpot payout of 3,333 coins. The Coin is the scatter symbol and triggers up to 25 free spins when two or more coin symbols appear scattered on the reels. The payouts are tripled during the free spins. Derby Dollars also offers a randomly triggered progressive jackpot. The biggest win at Rushmore online casino in July so far was not on Derby Dollars but another online slot game titled Enchanted Garden. Kathryn S also of the United States won $29,617 wagering on this slot game. This game is richer in features than Derby Dollars. The fairy is the wild symbol and it appears only on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5. But the payouts are doubled when the wild symbol helps make winning combinations. The garden related symbols are unicorn, butterfly and dragonfly. The fountain is the scatter symbol and awards scatter payouts. Seven free spins are triggered when the fountain appears on reel 1 and the fairy appears on reel 5. During the free spins if three or more symbols have a firefly in the background then each such symbol will award up to three additional free spins. Erik E is obviously an ice hockey fan because he was wagering on the online slot game Hockey Hero. Erik won only $4,947 in July, but if he perseveres, like Carmen did, then bigger wins will come in the future. Hockey Hero has symbols like goalie, umpire, trophy, mask, puck, skates, tickets, peanuts and beer. The player is the wild symbol. It appears on reels 2 and 4 and doubles payouts. The penalty box is the scatter symbol and triggers 18 free spins. All the peanuts symbols are removed from the reels and a clock symbol is added to reel 1. After every three free spins another symbol is removed and another clock symbol is added. If two clock symbols appear simultaneously on the reels the free spins are prematurely aborted. Rushmore online casino is powered by Realtime Gaming and is licensed in Curacao.

Delaware Legislature Passes Online Gambling Law

June 29th, 2012

Delaware Legislature Passes Online Gambling Law
Delaware Legislature Passes Online Gambling Law By: Adam Baker, Friday June 29th 20120 Comments   Email   PrintIn a historic moment in the US online gambling history, the state Senate of Delaware finally passed the HB333 with 16 votes in favor to 1 vote against. There was one abstention. The House had passed the bill earlier. The bill has been sent to Governor Jack Markell, who has publicly given his support to the bill. Once he signs the bill into law, Delaware will become the most advanced state in the legalization of online gambling in the United States. The achievement is all the greater, because Delaware was a late entrant into this arena. It began to mull legalizing online gambling only in December 2011 after the US Justice Department clarified that the Wire Act applied only to online sports betting and that states could regulate Internet gambling within their borders without violating the UIGEA. The proposed law envisages that Delaware casino web sites will offer slot machine, casino games like blackjack and poker. These web sites will be controlled and regulated by the state Lottery Office. Delaware lottery tickets also will be offered online on a state operated web site. The plan is to have about 30 additional sports betting outlets in place before the start of the NFL season and 100 Keno retailers by the end of 2012. Online gambling is expected to go live in early 2013. Geolocation software will ensure that players are within state borders. The law will bring viability to Delaware’s land casinos, which are facing aggressive competition from neighboring states. Some of the revenues from online gambling will be used to reduce the present $3.75 million licensing fees paid by land casinos. This will encourage them to invest in growth. The state finance department has estimated that the revenues from the new legislation should reach $7.75 million in 2013 alone. Senate President Anthony DeLuca said that it was important to keep Delaware at the forefront of the developments in gambling in the United States. DeLuca was the prime mover for the online gambling bill. The vote in the Senate was originally scheduled for June 26 but was delayed by a day. There was a concern that there were not enough Democratic Party votes to get the measure through. One of the reasons was the powerful harness racing industry asking for a greater share in the online gambling revenues and seeking to incorporate an amendment to that effect. If an amendment was agreed to, then the bill would have to be sent back to the House for another vote. This would greatly compromise the bill because then it would not go through in the current session. A compromise was reached when the administration has agreed to talk to the horsemen about a greater share of online gambling profits after the bill became law, based on actual revenues generated.

Online Gambling Moves Ahead in Delaware and New Jersey

June 22nd, 2012

Online Gambling Moves Ahead in Delaware and New Jersey
Online Gambling Moves Ahead in Delaware and New Jersey By: Joe Valentino, Thursday June 21st 20120 Comments   Email   PrintThe legislation seeking to legalize intrastate online gambling in Delaware is moving ahead at considerable speed. It was only last week that the online gambling bill HB333 was approved by the state House Assembly. On June 20 the bill was successfully passed through a Senate committee. The date for the full Senate vote has been set for June 26. If the bill passes through the Senate then it will be sent to Governor Jack Markell for signature. And unlike Governor Christie of New Jersey, Governor Markell has publicly declared his support for the legislation. The HB333 seeks to legalize online poker, online casino games such as slot machines, table games and keno, and allows an expansion into sports betting. The horse racing faction that was opposing the bill tried to stop it from being passed in the Senate committee, but failed to do so. The Senators in the committee apparently felt that the horse racing faction was being extremely hypocritical because it has been exploiting the online gambling channel for years, based on carve-outs in federal laws. In New Jersey Senator Ray Lesniak’s online gambling bill is being moved simultaneously in the Senate and the House. In May the Senate was to vote on the bill. However, the Senator did not go for the vote citing lack of support. Earlier, the New Jersey House Regulatory Oversight and Gaming Committee had passed the online gambling legalization bill with three votes in favor to one against, and with one abstention. On Monday June 18 the bill passed through a tough Appropriations Committee hearing. The local newspaper Star-Ledger reported that the bill would now be sent to a full House vote. However, a date for the vote has not been set. Presumably the sponsors of the bill are not sure of the support within the House as well. New Jersey Senator Lesniak’s online gambling bill will allow intrastate gambling at Atlantic City land casinos. The bill in principle allows the licensed online casino and poker operators to accept online bets from gamblers outside the state’s borders as well. This provision however will be subject to compliance with US federal law. The uncertain situation with New Jersey Governor Chris Christie prevails. In the past the governor had occasionally stated support to the bill and occasionally spoken against it. However, at the moment he is not indicating a position either way. It makes sense for Governor Christie to maintain a silence till the matter comes to him. If the legislators are unable to send the bill to him then he would be quite happy. The cat and mouse game is on.
