Russell Foreman Talks about Casino

London casino giant Aspinalls has gone online after four decades in the brick-and-mortar casino business. I talked with Russell Foreman, CEO of the new Aspinalls.com online casino, to find out what they’re bringing to the proverbial Internet gaming table.

WINNERonline: Why take Aspinalls online at this point?

Russell Foreman: The Aspinall family could see the potential of online gambling, but they wanted to be sure this wasn’t a flash in the pan. They wanted to explore the long-term potential to see whether this was a credible business.

Aspinalls is a natural [choice for an online casino]. We bring our long-term experience to bear, and people know this is a name they can rely on. Being a public company also adds another level of trust to this. We are completely transparent. You know who you’re going to play with.

Wo: I see that Aspinalls.com offers a London casino and a Caribbean casino. Do the two just look different?

RF: The sites do look different, but there will also be different games available. The London casino will offer players more table games, and the Caribbean casino will be predominantly slots.

Wo: Are you planning to develop other theme casinos over time?

RF: Yes. I’m planning to launch a number of casinos in the next little while, each with a geographical emphasis. They will feature 789 games that are popular in that area, so some casinos may have a lot of slots while others will have several types of poker, for example.

Why Disney Won’t Take Judi Slot Online Bets from Vermont

The Los Angeles Times broke the story at the end of May 2001: The Walt Disney Co. is backing a pay-to-play online gaming venture.

Disney’s partner, Skillgames, was supposed to officially launch its web site, Skillgames.com, in 2001 “amid a multimillion-dollar promotional blitz.” This particular project may have evaporated into the vaporweb. www.skillgames.com no longer exists.

But the question remains, is Disney gambling on gambling?

Disney executives say, “No.” A visit to the web site in May 2001 showed they are probably right.

I was able to register as a Skillgames.com user by paying $25 with my credit card. For a few days I was able to sample the games. (Play was suspended when the site went into its “Beta Launch” and never returned.)

Each game cost $1 to play. The prizes ranged from $1 to $500, although it was promised that once in full operation, players might be able to win as much as $1 million.

The details are bound to change. Disney does not have Judi Slot Online experience with gambling and will learn that players who pay $1 to enter a game do not consider a prize of $1 as “winning.”

But the interesting question is how can Disney be thinking about operating games for money at all?

The answer is they plan to offer only games of skill, not of chance. If a game is predominantly skill it is, by definition, not gambling.

The trick is to create a game that is both playable and with …

Sweden Opens Door for Slot Online Digital Gaming

VAXJO, Sweden — The Swedish parliament has voted to allow lotteries, bingo and casino gaming to be organized via the Internet. The changes to the Swedish lottery law have opened the door for the Swedish National Lottery, AB Trav och Galopp (the Swedish horse racing organization) and non-commercial organizations to distribute their games via digital media. The new lottery law will come into force this August, so applications from existing operators are now being accepted.

“As a recognized and experienced European supplier of software to the gaming industry, it’s like winning the lottery jackpot for us. This is obviously a great opportunity for us to supply our products to some of the operators who will be licensed to distribute digital lottery games on the Swedish market and, subsequently, to extend operations into the whole of Europe,” said Peter Bertilsson, CEO and President of Boss Media.

Within Europe, England is the only other country to permit Internet gaming, with restrictions on English gambling organizations being lifted 2 years ago. So far, the major lottery and gaming organizations have been reluctant to get into the digital market due to the uncertainty as to which way the law would go. Now that the Swedish lottery law has been changed in favor of a regulated market, rather than prohibition, other countries will probably follow suit and thereby promote the digital trend further.

International competition via the Internet has weakened control over gaming and lottery activities in Sweden, leading the Swedish parliament to identify the …

Real Baled out of another ‘crisis’ but the clásico beckons Dominoqq Online Terbaik

Outside the Bernabeu, fans chanted for Jose Mourinho no less to return. Ronaldo meanwhile, shaking his head as he left the field, has vowed not to speak to journalists for the rest of the season, although they will not be missing much to be honest.

 

* As Barcelona won comfortably with Messi on fire again, bagging a brace in a 2-0 win at Eibar, the gap at the top grew to four points for 24 hours, upping the pressure on Real to make amends in the final game of the week.

 

With a cloud of gloom and recrimination hanging over the Bernabeu, Real took the field against Levante for the 9pm Sunday kick-off. Then as if it had been scripted, Bale bounced back with two first-half goals to turn the tide of despair and bring his club back to within a point of Barça ahead of next week’s showdown.

 

Bale celebrated his first by putting his Dominoqq Online Terbaik hands over his ears and his second by kicking the corner flag, both entertaining and deserved, but equally proof that the constant criticism had got through to him. Perhaps it might have been better to have celebrated as normal and ignored the boo-boys.

 

As in politics, a week is indeed a long time in football, or in Real’s case, four days. As tragedy turned to triumph, so again the wheel of fate could turn this coming Sunday at the second clásico of the season.

Mike Sexton: Poker’s Premier Ambassador

A gentleman, a consummate professional, and a star in his own right, Mike Sexton is one of the poker industry’s finest ambassadors. Many years prior to the success of the World Poker Tour, Sexton was talking about corporate America’s endorsement and sponsorship of poker tournaments to anyone who would listen. He was talking about bringing poker into mainstream America and making it a hobby to be enjoyed by everyone. The guy has always been way ahead of his time. He is an ideas man, a hard worker, and passionate about what he does. One need only listen to him announce on World Poker Tour telecasts to instantly know the guy loves his job — and I do mean love with a capital L. He explained: “I love the game of poker; I love watching poker, playing poker, and talking about poker.”

Producer Richard Steiner (Topdog, The Producers, The Secret Garden, Hairspray, Big River, Little Shop of Horrors, and so on) told Steve Lipscomb and Mike that he was astounded that Mike is so good, adding that Mike’s enthusiasm and joy come across extraordinarily well on screen. Steiner certainly knows about what he speaks. Not only does he know TV, he knows poker as well, having won a World Series of Poker bracelet in 1992.

One Class Act

The amazing thing about Mike is that with-out any broadcast training whatsoever, he is a natural. His ability to discuss and explain poker in a way that anyone can understand is unrivaled. In …

A whole lotta Togel Hongkong bother on Platini’s plate

 

 

WARSAW, EURO 2012 Qualifying Draw

 

As if worrying about Ukraine’s hotels, roads and airports was not enough, UEFA President Michel Platini had other questions to answer in his press conference on the eve of the European Championship qualifying draw.

 

Depressingly, four separate English journalists asked him the same question in different wording about John Terry’s sex scandal, speciously implying a parallel with the one in 1982 when France sent Jean-Francois Larios home from the World Cup after he had been seeing Platini’s wife.

 

Thankfully the French legend was made of stronger stuff than to lower himself to those hacks’ baiting, but seemed to lose patience eventually by Togel Hongkong replying ‘I really don’t care’, which was met by applause by some non-Anglo writers. Platini did deflect a question about misbehaving rich stars by alluding to his plan to ban insolvent clubs from UEFA competitions.”What annoys me are the clubs who pay these high salaries when they don’t have the money,” he made a point of telling the hall.

 

Platini had started the press conference by referring to the continued uncertainly over the host nations’ suitability in many eyes. “We are working on it…these things will develop,” he semi-reassured the gathered media, whose experience of snowbound Warsaw has probably been a shock after the effortless charm of Vienna in the summer of 2008.After many deadlines, the eight venues are now at last “final” according to Platini, but one journalist still asked if Krakow, with its …

Asian nations do battle for a place in the Asian Data HK Cup 2011 finals

 

 

Australia and Japan, two of the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) powerhouses, can book their places in the finals of Asian Football Cup 2011 when 18 Asian nations battle it out on Wednesday in the penultimate round of the tournament’s five qualifying groups.

 

Hosts Qatar, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Korea Republic, India, Uzbekistan and Syria have already qualified for the 16-nation competition but at least another four nations can join them in Doha next January.

 

Three-times AFC Asian Cup winner Japan who play Yemen in Sana’a had considered not playing in the Gulf country because of the security situation, but Kyodo News Agency reported at the weekend that the AFC had carried out checks and contacted the Japan Football Association to give them the all-clear to make the trip as scheduled.

 

Japan only need a point to qualify, but have included 13 new Data HK faces with coach Takeshi Okada saying that his focus is on this year’s FIFA World Cup in South Africa.

Underdogs Yemen go into the match after a confidence-denting 1-0 defeat to Tajikistan on Saturday in Sana’a.

 

Bahrain, who share top spot with the Japanese in Group A, play Hong Kong at home and a win would also them through to the finals.

 

Australia, the AFC’s top-ranked nation, play in Kuwait on the same day, but, like Japan, will be fielding an under-strength side without most of their European-based players. Regular midfielder Jason Culina has also pulled out after injuring his …

Three Down, Three To Go – Data Hk Mixed Fortunes For Korean Teams

 

 

For at least two of South Korea’s four representatives in the Asian Champions League, this week is make or break time. The quartet stands at the halfway point of the group stage with three games gone and three to go. With the top two in each group of four progressing to the second round, now is the time to start picking up points.

 

Interestingly, each of Korea’s four hopefuls occupies different positions in their respective groups. Suwon Bluewings are first in Group G, Pohang Steelers second in Group H, FC Seoul third in Group F and Ulsan Hyundai Horang-I fourth in Group E. All four are in with a chance of the next round but equally, all four could fail.

 

Much will depend on this week’s action when, for the second Data Hk successive matchday, the four Korean teams take on Chinese opposition. In football, China has something of an inferiority complex when it comes to South Korea. This stems from the fact that in 27 meetings between the two national teams at senior and Olympic level, Korea has never lost.

 

This gave rise to a term in the Chinese media called ‘Koreaphobia’ – the fear of playing Korea on the football pitch. As you may expect, it was something that was gleefully adopted by the Seoul press too.

 

Before every meeting of the respective national teams, the Chinese coach tells reporters how this time, the jinx will be lifted and the curse broken …

European Bandar Poker Qq leagues Twenty two titles awarded

 

 

No less than 22 league championships throughout Europe have been resolved to date, including those in the countries where the competitions are played within a calendar year. League titles have been decided in France, Italy, Holland, Scotland and Greece, while dramatic outcomes are expected in Spain, Germany, Poland and Czechia.

 

The most dramatic finish occurred in Holland, where AZ Alkmaar under Louis van Gaal had all the trumps in their hands to win the league for the Bandar Poker Qq first time in 26 years. Of the three clubs going into the last day even on points, AZ had by far the best goal difference and needed any win away to lowly Excelsior to clinch the title. On the other hand, PSV were in the worst position having let slip an eight point advantage over AZ and ten points’ over Ajax in the past two months.

Miraculously, AZ were beaten by Excelsior, on their way to the play-offs to avoid relegation, while Ajax beat Willem II with an insufficient 2-0 in Tillburg. In the meantime, PSV thrashed Vitesse 5-1, edging Ajax by a single goal for their third successive title. In fact, if Ajax had won by three goals they would have been champions!
