Town official challenges gambling ban

A town moderator in Massachusetts complained to the state Gaming Commission about a proposed gambling ban to elected officials from casinos in communities where they represent. Town Moderator Luke Travis of the town of Plainville, wrote a letter to the state gambling industry resenting the implication that he “cannot be trusted” to exercise his duties “while enjoying myself from time to time at a casino.” While the ban does not prohibit officials from the premises, it does prevent them from betting within the casino. The intended ban is to address the possibility of a relationship developing between casino operators and local officials who might be able to ...

New payment code for New Jersey online betting

New Jersey’s authorised casinos hope that the release of a new credit card code will finally encourage major banks into allowing payments for online gambling. The difficulty in using card payments means that players are frequently forced to use alternative payment routes such as wire transfers or e-wallets, when most prefer using cards.  While Mastercard and Visa are among those who facilitate card payments for online gambling, it is the banks that issue the cards that have the authority whether to accept or decline a purchase.  Over half of Mastercard transactions and more than one-quarter of Visa transactions are declined for legal online gambling in New Jersey, the s...

Portugal has approved the Online Gambling Bill for 28 June, with the hope of issuing the first online licenses before the end of the year. Regulated by the Santa Casa de Misericordia de Lisboa, interested operators will have to provide a security bond of €500,000 before their application will be accepted. It is hoped that the legislation will generate €25 million annually for the government’s tax coffers. It also looks to end illegal online gambling which has caused a 33% decline in Portuguese land-based gaming revenue over the past six years. The Council of Ministers stated that the bill would proceed in line with the recommendations issued by the EC and the &l...

Study debunks myths around online gambling

It's a constant mantra that's bleated around - "online gambling is addictive and should be banned!". Well, such doomsayers need to remember that in 2015, a leading gambling researcher published findings that helped disprove some of online gambling critic’s wilder claims. Dr Sally Gainsbury from Australia's Southern Cross University had spent over a decade studying gambling habits and she'd published over seventy papers in her career. She believed that there were plenty of unsubstantiated fears about online gambling. In her paper Online Gambling Addiction: the Relationship between Internet Gambling & Disordered Gambling , Gain...
