N.J. Could be the First to Legalize Online betting in the United States

In the United States there are many contradictions in regard to the idea of regulated online betting. The United States has many venues to bet, such as the world class Las Vegas and of course the well known Atlantic City casinos, and in many states online betting on the horses and lotteries is common. N.J., the host of much betting activity may be the first state of the union to offer legal online betting to it’s residents.

A sports wagering legistlation is being considered by Atlantic City lawmakers that if approved could result in N.J. being on the leading edge of changes coming rapidly in the country. Competition is strong with Pennsylvania and California currently planning their own forms of legalization of online betting within their respective borders.

Which state will offer legal casino betting favorites such as poker, blackjack betting, slots or roulette betting, is anybody’s guess at the moment with each state waiting to see what the other does and how they do it.

Reasoning behind the proposed legistlation is that the law does not reflect the reality that exists now. According to statistical data there are currently 500,000 online poker betting fans in the state of N.J.. State Senator Raymond Lesniak says, “we’re missing out on around $100 million in revenue”. Adding, “It would be a big boost to the casino industry in Atlantic City. It’s a bold move, and in this economy we need bold moves.” With an estimated annual tax bite of twenty percent on the gross revenues from online casinos that would add significant revenue for cash strapped jurisdictions. There are the usual concerns that online betting in N.J. will lead to more problem betrs but there are those who think that once regulated it would be easier to help those with troubles. The N.J. Casino Control Commission said it would open a new online division to oversee licensing and operations for the new operators

$2 Blackjack betting tables come back to Atlantic City casinos

As the economy hits hotel and resort casinos in the United States hard, finding a solution to increase income has been fairly hardous. There are a lot of different promotions that can be used to try and lure players back to the tables. At some casino betting establishments in Atlantic City, the latest attempt is a flashback from years ago.

certain casinos have decided to bring back $2 Blackjack betting tables. With high rollers being hard to come by during the economic slowdown, the Atlantic City casino is hoping that the regular players can help improve revenue.

Opening tables at this price level does not come without a catch. Players will have to pay $.25 a hand to the casino. The fee will go towards offsetting the operating costs of running such a small stakes table. The casino is attempting to attract new and inexperienced players with the $2 dollar tables.

$2 tables were very common before casinos became greedy and took away the games. Now that they are hurting for customers, the casinos have started to rethink their high limit tables.

There has also been an increase in penny slot machines over the past couple of years. While high rollers still have the opportunity to play at stakes of over $100 per spin, the players on a budget can find a lot of penny slots at most hotel and resort casinos in the United States.

The Atlantic City casino industry has been among the hardest hit by the economic slowdown. Atlantic City and Las Vegas had been considered to be the USA betting capitals, but competition has increased for both gambling locations

Taxes proposed on UK online betting

International online betting sites could be forced to pay tax on Irish bets if the official Opposition in the Irish parliament gets its way, it was reported Thursday.

According to the Great Britain Press release, Irish Labour Party spokesperson stated offshore betting conmpanies and bookmakers – including telephone and television operators – would be brought under a new 1.5% levy for the industry in its proposals to extend taxation. This would replace the existing 1% tax in betting shops and amount to Euro 90 million for the Horse and Greyhound Racing Fund, the spokesperson stated.

Labour’s sports spokeswoman, Mary Upton, stated operators declining to pay the taxes would be banned in Ireland.

The Irish move follows recent initiatives by the British government to extend “secondary licensing” and taxation to offshore online betting corporations providing online betting facilities to Great Britain residents

Women enjoy on the internet Casino Betting

The conclusion of a research commissioned by a sine named Win monkey and published this week is catching the attention of the media in the United Kingdom.

The tabloid The Sun published that a quarter of the housewives in the research log on to social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter for more hours than they spend looking after their children – with some spending over 5 hours a day on the net.

Over 80% of all full-time mothers admitted going on the internet during the day – and 79% spent more time at their computers than they did cooking and cleaning, the research discovered.

The most popular sites were social networks, but almost a quarter of the housewives interviewed revealed that they spent at least some of the day on on the internet casino betting sites.

The research of 1,466 women discovered that chat forums, social networking sites and betting sites were the main Internet attractions. Stay-at-home mums spent an average of two and a quarter hours on the internet a day. Over forty% stated they used the Internet more than three hours a day and 18% spent more than 5 hours a day on the internet.

Almost three quarters of mums quizzed stated they spent more time surfing the net than they did watching TV, and 79% spent more time on the Internet than they did doing household chores, including cooking.

In related news, a recent survey by Yahoo discovered 65% of mums use the Internet as main source of information, rather than wasting time on the internet.

How to Bet At Roulette

In Roulette betting, players can choose to put wagers on a digit, a range of digits, the colors red or black, or whether the digit is odd or even.

To decide the winning digit and color, a croupier spins the wheel in one direction, then spins a ball in the opposite direction around a tilted circular track running around the circumference of the wheel. The ball eventually falls into one of 37 colored and digited pockets on the wheel.

The pockets are digited from 1 to 36, with one zero pocket (two zero pockets in America). In the digit ranges from 1 to 10 and 19 to 28, odd digits are red and even digits are black. In the digit ranges from 11 to 18 and 29 to 36, odd digits are black and even digits are red.

There are a variety of betting options available to players on the wheel.

Placing ‘inside’ wagers involves selecting the exact digit of the pocket the ball will land in, or a small range of pockets based on their proximity on the layout.

Placing ‘outside’ wagers is selecting wagers on larger positional groupings of pockets, the pocket color, or whether the winning digit is odd or even.

The payout odds for each type of bet is based on its probability. The Roulette betting table usually imposes minimum and maximum wagers, and these rules usually apply separately for all of a player’s inside and outside wagers for each spin.

When a winning digit and color is decided by the Roulette betting wheel, the dealer will put a marker – also known as a dolly – on that winning digit on the Roulette betting table layout. They will then sweep away all other losing wagers and decide all of the payouts to the remaining inside and outside winning wagers.

When the dealer is finished making payouts, the marker is removed from the board where players collect their winnings and make new wagers.
