All-in With Ozzy Osbourne Live At Metal Casino

Metal Casino - renowned betting site for hard rock fans and metal heads has recently announced increased marketing outreach with its newly appointed brand ambassador, Ozzy Osbourne. The mega influencer and legendary singer of Black Sabbath will be featured in several promotional videos and play various casino games while talking about famous musicians including Slash, Jimi Hendrix and Lemmy.

Starting February 26th, the exclusive campaign will be primarily concentrated on social media sites like Facebook and Instagram. Since its launch in August 2017, the casino has been very successful worldwide, however, a boost of presence in the UK is the company’s new strategy, since Ozzy is a major influencer in the UK, primarily through his own channels.

As a reminder, Metal Casino travelled to Culver City, Los Angeles only a month ago to make some exclusive shots with Ozzy, including an extraordinary interview about Motörhead, Guns ’n’ Roses and iconic guitar player, Jimi Hendrix. In the video, Osbourne reminisces about his late friend Lemmy Kilmister, famous guitarist from Slash and the world’s most influential electric guitar player of all time, Johnny Allen Hendrix, better known as Jimi. The Prince of Darkness also presents the legendary Rainbow Room and uncovers taboo stories about The Beatles and his remarkable guitarists.

The show is only half-hour long and it will be divided into five episodes. Each social media channel will feature one of the episodes, so it’s important to like or follow the company’s page. Also important to mention is that Ozzy will be giving away signed prizes to lucky lottery winners!

Thanks to Ozzy’s professionalism and pure commitment, the casino will reach out to a larger number of music and gaming fans, according to chief marketing officer, Clas Dahlen. A combination of epic rock documentaries and elements of the casino will offer a unique show which will probably go viral, adds Dahlen.

Equally important are brand’s top hard rock stars and future influencers, Scott Ian from Anthrax, David Ellefson (Megadeth) and Lord Ahriman – renowned Swedish musician and composer (Dark Funeral). Staying true, relevant and dedicated is the company’s main mission, so keep on bangin’ and don’t forget to watch this unique masterpiece.

2WinPower Returns: Beware of Fake Slots

2WinPower Returns: Beware of Fake Slots
2WinPower Returns: Beware of Fake Slots

Remember 2WinPower? Members who follow LCB rogue reports know all about this infamous company. Providers of pirated software, they've been banished from the industry once before, by the joint effort of LCB and Aristocrat Gaming. Though the online community was ecstatic to see them gone and their criminal business closed, we had a feeling that wasn't the last we'll see from 2WinPower. Sure enough, they are back! Not to be confused - this is not a casino! They are a third party supplier of fake, turnkey gaming products including counterfeits of Novomatic, Net Entertainment, Realtime Gaming, EGT and Aristocrat video slots.

Considering they've shown great tenacity and fought tooth and nail to keep their piracy network alive and well, it is not at all surprising to see the company reemerging on a wholly different domain: https://2wpower.com/. We first encountered their fake games in 2016, when investigating two very suspicious casinos: BetsTower and BetMaxValue. To our dismay, we realized this was a large and complicated network involving at least one other company: Desoft Gaming. One shocking fact after another, not only was their entire offering falsified, but they advertised openly via an official website and social channels, apparently undaunted by legal repercussions for plagiarism.

Thinking themselves untouchable (and why wouldn't they, when so little has been done to prevent such frauds), they were shocked to realize they've been busted when LCB exposed their products on another client brand, Burnbet Casino, in 2017. A struggle ensued when employees and associates of 2WinPower and Desoft Gaming started pestering our team via emails and official LCB channels, in a futile attempt of damage control, resorting even to death threats. We, of course, never thought of removing any evidence of their illegal trade from our portal.

After contacting Aristocrat representatives, together we forced the piracy network to remove the falsified versions of the popular provider's software from their website in August 2017. Victory achieved! Having no genuine games of their own, we had hoped it would damage their business enough to shut down eventually.

As faith would have it, they have returned and it means we must again be very cautious not to fall for their fakes. No doubt they will instruct clients to conceal the origin of supplied slots as much as possible. Previously, it was possible to spot some of their games thanks to a loader with the 2WinPower logo, without having to inspect source codes or other details. There's no telling how this might have changed. We will keep our eyes open for any sign of the all too familiar foul play, but for now, let's stay away from the above-mentioned sites. Keep up with LCB Rogue reports for new information regarding this criminal network!

NetEnt Presents Asgardian Stones Slot

Latest Casino Bonuses
NetEnt Presents Asgardian Stones Slot
NetEnt Presents Asgardian Stones Slot

NetEnt is showing no signs of slowing down as the iGaming industry giant keeps releasing new titles at an incredible pace. Apparently, tales of Vikings and their mythology are in great demand because the world is ripe to be taken over and conquered by yet another onslaught of these Nordic warriors in Asgardian Stones.

The new title presents a game of stunning beauty and outrageously epic quality (as you will see in the demo video below). It features a 5-reel, 3-row configuration and 20 paylines. Set in a mythical land of Gods, it is surrounded by a mystical lake, surrounded by misty mountains and rocks. Its symbols and reels are one of the most beautifully designed we've seen in quite while. Each symbol is represented by a stone carving of a specific Nordic God, with glowing crystals in distinctive colors. The backdrops change to a spacey, nocturnal ambiance once the extra spins mode is hit. The cascading symbols fall on top of one another, and when the win is created, the symbols get smashed to make way for a new set of symbols replacing them, potentially making more than one win per spin.

What you will notice immediately playing the game is the Colossal Crush feature – it's when enormous symbols appear from above and crush little ones beneath them and release enough energy to yield win multipliers. There will even be an occasional Wheel of Fortune making an appearance on the reels, rewarding you with a random amount of extra spins! How cool is that? The Colossal Crush feature is making its premiere appearance here in Asgardian Stones and will surely be yet another cornerstone by which NetEnt will be recognized as the industry's leading innovator.

NetEnt's Chief Product Officer was reasonably overexcited about this release: “Our team has worked tirelessly during the process of designing and creating Asgardian Stones™ and really look forward to see the game finally out with players all over the world. The Colossal Crush feature is an industry first and only adds to the excitement this game offers, so we can’t wait to see the reaction from the gaming world as we continue our positive start to 2018.”

Coming Atlantic City casino promising plethora of live music

World Casino News
Coming Atlantic City casino promising plethora of live music

Ahead of its planned opening in the summer, the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino Atlantic City has reportedly revealed that its first year in business will see it host in excess of 200 nights of live music spread across a wide range of genres. According to a Sunday report from the Associated Press news service printed by The Washington Post newspaper, the New Jersey casino is in the process of adding a further 1,800 seats to its Mark G Etess Arena in order to take the venue’s total seating capacity up to 7,000 and it intends to utilize this large space as well as more intimate areas for its future musical offerings. Formerly called the Trump Taj Mahal Casino Resort until its closure in 2016 amid a labor dispute between the local chapter of the UNITE HERE trade union and billionaire property developer Carl Icahn, the 2,000-room Hard Rock Hotel and Casino Atlantic City is now owned by an entity known as Boardwalk 1000. The new proprietor consists of American casino operator Hard Rock International alongside private investors Joe Jingoli and Jack Morris while an enterprise known as HR Atlantic City is due to run all of the Atlantic City venue’s gambling facilities. Jim Allen, Chairman for Hard Rock International, reportedly told an audience that had assembled at the New Shiloh Baptist Church and Community Center last week that the re-branded Boardwalk casino is to feature more live music events than the Boardwalk city has ever seen while also noting that he only recently inked a deal that will see Beyonce and Jay-Z perform at the Hard Rock Stadium near Miami. “When’s the first time someone has done 200 shows in Atlantic City,” Allen reportedly asked last week’s assembled crowd. “When’s the last time you saw entertainment on a night other than Saturday in Atlantic City? We’re going to make that commitment.” By contrast, the Associated Press reported that Atlantic City’s 15,000-seat Boardwalk Hall venue hosted only eleven big-name concerts throughout the whole of 2017 while it described the musical offerings from the area’s existing casinos as ‘varying widely’ with most limited to weekends. “Bringing entertainment into the city mid-week at off-peak times will be a particularly persuasive reason for visitors to consider extending their stay,” Rummy Pandit, Executive Director of the Levenson Institute of Gaming, Hospitality and Tourism at nearby Stockton University, reportedly told the news service. “Turning a two-night weekend stay into a long weekend or mid-week getaway can make a huge difference for Atlantic City’s lodging, food and beverage, retail, gaming and tourism businesses.”

Casinos In the Spotlight: Best of 2017

Casinos In the Spotlight: Best of 2017
Casinos In the Spotlight: Best of 2017

After another successful year, we look back at memorable events and noteworthy brands that made us happy and proud to be part of the gaming community in 2017. Having summarized the performances of inferior casinos, along with their adverse effects in the past 12 months, it is time to move these unpleasantries aside and give credit to whom credit is due - to all the great operators who made a commendable effort to achieve and maintain high-quality services. This is not a small group, mind you. Distinguished brands were numerous and we hope their number signalizes a new direction in the growth and development of the iGaming industry, where we can show that honesty, integrity and professionalism are very much present in this unique field of entertainment.

USA Brands Going Strong

As one of LCB's oldest most reliable partners, Slotland did not disappoint, and continued in the same manner that has made many of our members happy throughout the years. Jack the rep repsresented the casino admirably, and did a fantastic job managing exclusive deals. Boasting a high 4.5 stars rating and over 270, mostly positive, player comments, what they're especially good at are bonuses: the cashback offer alone is a testament to the quality of this operator, it has been active and immensely popular since 2012!

''Slotland is one casino I have played at for years. They are very honest and a quick paying casino. Their games are their own and one of the best in my opinion. Pay out if you pay the top bid can be very high. Most games have progressive payout for top hit. Slotland large payout are a little slim compared to other top casinos. I still would suggest you try this casino. Good game and really fun.''

Sister sites Red Stag and Sloto'Cash reaffirmed strong positions in the LCB list with treats of their own. Thanks to these great brands, LCB'ers enjoy exclusive freeroll slot tournaments, playing for high prizes on the great WSG games, and a quick and efficient customer service both from the official rep and on-site support agents.

''I love Red Stag Casino. The games re fun and so are the tournaments. They have penny tournaments! The customer service staff is very friendly. I love WGS software. I love I can play at Red Stag in mobile version too.''

Held in high regard, the US-friendly Liberty Slots left a lasting impression on our members with a series of amazing tournaments, hosted every month exclusively for players from LCB. There are few WGS-powered casinos, but this former English Harbor site gives a good name to this small group.

''I love this casino along with the other handful of WGS casinos. Liberty slots has some of the best customer support team around. They have very fast payouts and it is all so simple to make deposits. I love there tournaments and how they are ran as well. This is my go to casino.''

Ignition and Casino Extreme do not need a special introduction - they are well known to American gamblers, who uniformly praise timely payments, fast and reliable support, and overal good quality services and games.

Let's see what we thought of the good old Intertops Classic, a trusted site and a highpoint of online gaming in the region and beyond:

'Intertops is by far my favorite online casino. Absolutely the quickest payout I have had from any online casino. Their live chat is 2nd to none and I have yet to wait longer than 60 seconds before I am greeted and questions answered through the live chat service. I would recommend this casino to anyone and everyone as it has been my best online casino experience by leaps and bounds''

Welcoming the Future with Bitcoin

Cryptocurrencies made a boom in the gambling industry and paved way to faster, safer and anonymous transactions, just the thing we desired. Having in mind the advantages of digital money and the possibilities this new way of banking has in our field of entertainment, casinos that have embraced Bitcoin as the most popular and globally used crytpocurrency, deserve an Honorable mention and a place on this list:

Oshi Casino Wild Tornado Bitstarz Gunsbet Joo Casino Luckystar.io

If you're looking for the best bonuses around, contemporary look and fair games, go with Oshi; interesting slot combat tournaments, wide selection of games and promotions topped off with an elaborate VIP program are among the attractive features of Wild Tornado; one of the most successful casinos operating on the SoftSwiss platform, Bitstarz stays on top as an all-around dependable site that keeps a high standard in every respect; Gunsbet is the force of innovation, continually improving the platform and its many gaming options. Lucky Star is a proud bearer of LCB Seal of Approval - this means they are more than able to compete for the best Bitcoin-friendly site of 2017. Joo Casino is on good terms with players and affiliates alike, their grand compilation of slots is a sight to see for every fan of the fast-spinning reels.

Casinos We can Count On

In the gaming world, there are good and there are bad guys, but than there are those who represent a standard. Always consistent and reliable, these operators never failed our expectations. Players are fortunate to have brands they can count on to deliver top software, fair terms of service, multiple payment options, meaningful incentives and finally, timely cash-outs to all lucky winners.

An experienced operator, Mr Green launched in 2007 and has stayed with us ever since, offering a large platform, popular bonuses and close-to-instant withdrawals to UK markets and the rest of Europe.

''Trustworthy casino, first casino where I have cashed out bigger sum. No problems ever with MrGreen.''

32 Red is a veteran of gambling, a massive website dating back to 2002, with loyal players and great ratings across the industry. Their ''trophy cabinet'' is filled with accolades awarded by eminent industry experts.

A pioneer of player-friendly tools and features automatically preventing misuse of bonuses and games, SlotsMillion is at the forefront of groundbreaking gameplay systems with Max Bet, Withdrawal Lock and Table Bet features!

''Another Casino to add to my favorites: Only really active since recent, but i must say their list of Games is simply amazing. As a veteran gambler, and one that has also worked as slot reviewer, i was amazed by the amount of Games that i still hadn't tired :) A lot of providers you'll find almost nowhere else, at least not in that volume, or together with other cool providers, and that alone makes this Casino worthwhile in my opinion. Also very good support, and great bonuses, from what i've seen. so far: there are fixed match ups on a few days of the week, or free Spins on deposit, and i've been getting a few decent offers aside from those too. I only deposited a few 100, but still received a generous comp without asking!''

Launched by the established Fortune Lounge group, Royal Vegas stands proud with certified software, multitudes of banking options, and a long history of rock-solid business moves.

Casino Adrenaline, founded in 2014, tells us loud and clear why the site should be the top choice of every aspiring punter: wins are credited fair and square, funds and data are kept safe by strong encryption protocols, support is at your disposal every minute of every day.

''I like this casino they have a wide range of games. verification is slow takes up to 72h. but when you are verified they have Fast withdrawal. Live support is helpful and overall an excellent casino. I recommend this casino.''

Retro on the outside, next-gen on the inside, Golden Euro combines best of both worlds pursuing a simple goal: customer satisfaction. Over 300 LCB'ers voted for an average rating of 4.2 stars. Support services and bonus program are deemed are considered the best among RTG powered brands.

''This is the rare case when a casino from an RTG provider is excellent! The minimum deposit is only 5 euros and the minimum withdrawal is 10 euros! I have never seen anything like this in RTG. There is a bonus without a deposit for registration of 15 euros. Excellent casino!''

Original and Inventive

Kudos to GreenZorro, a 2017 arrival daring to be different. Not everyone is comfortable with changes, but gamblers benefit when the mold is broken. Debuting a system of investment returns, allowing players to recoup losses through investing in a variety of products. Never thought we'd hear the words interest earning and gambling in the same sentence!

Best Newcomer of 2017

Stakes is new, bu they're advancing quickly beating competition left and right. First impressions count, and what we saw was a capable operator with a clear goal and the means to achieve it. Players liked the smooth performance of the platform, games, design and friendly support, but most of all the free bonus awarded on sign up! We'd like to see higher cash-out limits, but we're optimistic improvements are in the pipeline for this promising brand.

Risen out of the Shadows

Active since 2006, Superior Casino finally decided to live up to their name, making a series of noteworthy and much-needed changes to multiple aspects of the platform. LCB'ers were pleasantly surprised seeing numerous and varied bonus offers and engaging tournaments. Adding Bitcoin payments opened doors for new members, and improving the tangible aspects of customer support was among the most significant changes.

''Definitely the best place if you want frequent bonuses, new slots are getting promotions most of the time!They also do btc transactions so thats a plus.''

It's Been a Good Year!

Looks like positive events were the dominant force of 2017. Good guys were in the lead and there were very few disappointments. Big changes are in the works for legal, technological and, yes, ethical aspects of the iGaming world. These great brands are the harbingers of better times to come for our growing community!

Bitcoin and Litecoin Vouchers Added to the Shop

Latest Casino Bonuses
Bitcoin and Litecoin Vouchers Added to the Shop
Bitcoin and Litecoin Vouchers Added to the Shop

We have great news for all our cryptocurrency-loving members. As Bitcoin transaction fees hit an all time low in February 2018, Bitcoin voucher makes a comeback to the Shop! This time, the most popular digital form of money is not the only such item to redeem - we also added Litecoin, an alternative peer-to-peer currency sharing many of its technical features.

When the increased demand and volatility of the value of Bitcoin led to insufferably high transaction fees in 2017, we were regretfully forced to suspend the item, which was at that time among the most popular Shop perks. Back then, the network couldn't cope with the growing demand for the currency, causing fees to skyrocket, which meant the cost of sending and receiving small payments was much too high. But now that the fees are once again reaching acceptable values, the time is right to reintroduce these highly requested items.

Both vouchers function as cash items, and will be sent straight to your digital wallets. Once you have accumulated $25 by contributing to the LCB community, the chips will be available to claim and use at gaming sites that accept cryptocurrency deposits. Nowadays, there are many reputable brands with excellent software and features to choose from - take a look at our list of Bitcoin-friendly casinos and pick the one best suited to your needs.

Our Shop is a way to give back to our members for their continued loyalty and dedication to the gaming community. Your posts, comments and ratings of casinos and games result in LCB virtual cash awarded to you at a rate which depends on your current status. Every action counts and will get you closer to claiming any of the Shop's many free gifts. Good luck!

Crown Resorts Limited six-month financials buoyed by VIP play

In Australia, domestic casino operator Crown Resorts Limited has released its financial results for the six months to the end of December showing that it posted a 1.4% increase year-on-year in overall revenues to US$1.4 billion although its net profit of US$186.9 million represented a decline of 33.6%. Melbourne-based Crown Resorts Limited stated that it had experienced a 15.9% surge year-on-year in turnover from VIP gamblers for the six-month period to US$17.6 billion while its main floor takings of US$673.4 million signified an improvement of 0.7%. Crown Resorts Limited is responsible for the Crown Perth facility in Western Australia as well as Victoria’s much larger Crown Melbourne venue and declared that it had received US$62.1 million in ‘significant items attributable to the parent’ during the six months to December 31 with a majority component being the ‘reversal of an impairment’ for the Nevada land on which it had hoped to build its Alon Las Vegas integrated casino resort. John Alexander, Executive Chairman for Crown Resorts Limited, described the half-year financial results as reflective of ‘mixed trading conditions’ with ‘modest revenue growth in Melbourne’ being counterbalanced by ‘softness in Perth’. “VIP program play turnover in Australia of US$17.6 billion [was] up 15.9% [and] was a pleasing outcome, particularly at Crown Melbourne [with an improvement of] 37.5%, given the difficult trading conditions in the previous corresponding period,” read a statement (pdf) from Alexander. Crown Resorts Limited moreover used its half-year financial statement to reveal that it intends to offload the entirety of its 62% stake in the CrownBet horseracing and sportsbetting brand by the end of the month for approximately US$117.4 million. “The purchaser is an entity associated with other shareholders in CrownBet including the CrownBet management team led by Matthew Tripp or its nominee,” read a statement from Crown Resorts Limited.

William Hill Fined £6.2M For Violating Law

William Hill Fined £6.2M For Violating Law
William Hill Fined £6.2M For Violating Law

This week's cautionary tale for the operators who take things too lightly comes from the good ol’ UK, where even the biggest of names get slapped on the wrist for not playing by the book.

One of the world's leading gambling brands, William Hill, made a few severe omissions that will cost them dearly - £6,2 million is the value of the fine determined by the UK Gambling Commission! The supplier will have to pay for breaching the rules catering for social responsibility and money laundering.

The UKGC revealed that, between November 2014 and August 2016, William Hill's upper management committed a series of violations leading to the breach of social responsibility and money laundering regulations. Part of the reason why this occurred, according to UKGC, is because William Hill did not appoint enough staff members who would monitor the proceedings of regulations in an effective manner. As a result, ten different players deposited money linked with criminal offences which generated a £1.2 million revenue for the operator who did not look for the source of the money – a fatal mistake!

One client- who lives in a rented flat earning £30,000 per year in the accounts department - deposited £654,000 over a period of nine months. Another one, who is accused for stealing from their employer, deposited £541,000 over 14 months. In both instances, William Hill management didn't carry out any checks.

For violating this regulation, the brand will need to return the £1.2 million they earned and pay the additional fine of £5 million.

Neil McArthur, UKGC's Executive Director, commented this breaching of the rules: “We will use the full range of our enforcement powers to make gambling fairer and safer. This was a systemic failing at William Hill which went on for nearly two years and today's penalty package - which could exceed £6.2m - reflects the seriousness of the breaches. Gambling businesses have a responsibility to ensure that they keep crime out of gambling and tackle problem gambling - and as part of that they must be constantly curious about where the money they are taking is coming from.”

Lucky Dragon hotel open for business until March 27; judge decides

Lucky Dragon hotel open for business until March 27; judge decides

A Nevada bankruptcy judge ruled Wednesday that the hotel of the Asian-themed Lucky Dragon resort off the north end of the Las Vegas Strip will remain open for another month. U.S. Bankruptcy Court, District of Nevada Judge Laurel Davis decided after a bankruptcy hearing for the Lucky Dragon Hotel and Casino that the hotel would remain open until March 27, when the next hearing will take place. The casino, however, will remain closed and there will not be a foreclosure auction, the judge ruled, according to local television station FOX5. The resort’s operating entity Lucky Dragon Hotel and Casino LLC on Friday, Feb. 16 reportedly filed a petition for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection ahead of today's scheduled foreclosure. The property had a brutal start when just a few months after opening, in order to cut operating costs, one of its restaurants was closed and about a hundred people including the general manager were fired, as reported by the Las Vegas Review-Journal at the time. The temporarily closing of all gaming and casino restaurant operations on January 4 further emphasized the then one-year-old Asian-themed boutique hotel and locals casino’s financial woes. At the time, the resort’s management reportedly told FOX5 that the casino was “reorganizing,” and that the temporary closure meant the laying off of casino workers and less gaming and dining options. A few weeks later in January the Lucky Dragon was served with a foreclosure notice. FOX5 reports that during the bankruptcy hearing, attorneys for Lucky Dragon reportedly said that in November the property had been appraised at $143 million, however creditors stated that it was appraised at $60 million. Without disclosing specifics, lawyers for the hotel also reportedly said that should the Sahara Ave property become available for sale, there are a number of potential buyers. The Las Vegas Review-Journal reported on Monday that according to bankruptcy papers, Lucky Dragon was appraised at $143 million, which was funded in part with $89.5 million worth of loans from 179 individuals who invested $500,000 each through the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) administered EB-5 visa program. Under the program, foreigners seeking permanent green cards can do so if they invest a minimum of $500,000 into a business venture that creates at least 10 full-time jobs. FOX5 reports that none of the attorneys were certain of how the immigration status of those individuals. Five years in the making from concept to ribbon-cutting, Lucky Dragon had a soft opening on November 19, 2016, and hosted its official grand opening on December 3, 2016.

Sports Betting & Gaming India 2018 is one week away

The Sports Betting & Gaming India Summit 2018 (SGBI), will be held on 27 & 28 February 2018 at the beachfront luxury 5-star Park Hyatt Goa Resort & Spa, India. We outlined and defined the potential market that is poised to offer explosive opportunities in a June 2017 special report, Emerging Markets: Sports Betting & Gaming India. As the date is fast approaching this is a 'last call' to operators, providers, and support services companies to make plans to attend this groundbreaking event. Event organizer Eventus-International has spent nearly a year assembling a panel of over forty industry experts and speakers. This virtual brain trust will share knowledge and lead discussions that will focus on every crucial aspect of gaming and betting in preparation for the eventual legalization and regulation of the activities in the home of the world's largest democracy. The agenda will inform in detail on the current situation in the country where potentially hundreds of millions of people bet and gamble illegally with only lotteries and horse racing operating in the daylight. Key stakeholders will examine the case for legislation and regulation with an emphasis on consumer protection, responsible gambling, and the commercial opportunities that would result from a robust legal framework that ensure betting integrity. The platform was designed to facilitate a candid and open debate and discussion on the future of all forms of betting and gambling in the country. Earlier this year, the Law Commission of India produced a public report mandated by the Supreme Court to study the possibility of legalized betting in India. They noted that leaving gambling out of their consideration might make the entire exercise futile as the two are so closely related. The report stated in part: "The recommendation made by the Committee that betting should be legalized by law, involves the enactment of a Law which is a matter that may be examined by the Law Commission and the Government for such action as it may consider necessary in the facts and circumstances of the case." (PDF) Among other issues that the Commission stated needed further study were whether legalized betting and gambling would lower the incidence of illegal activity in the country and if foreign betting and gambling companies should be allowed to 'have a foothold' in India. While the summit is focused on the Indian gaming market rather than the global marketplace, participants are registered from around the globe, showing the great interest in tapping what may become one of the last greenfield opportunities left. In order to make investment decisions, business leaders need to know the current situation as well as what the future holds in India. Eventus International Managing Director, Yudi Soetjiptadi said: "With participants from countries like Australia, Malta, United Kingdom, Hong Kong, Germany, South Africa, Taiwan, Philippines, Switzerland, Bulgaria, Latvia, United Arab Emirates, India and many more; SBGI will indeed be a global platform for the gaming market in years to come." Eventus International is an independent professional event producing company that specializes in exhibitions and conferences across Asia and Africa.

Viktor Blom wins 2018 partypoker LIVE MILLIONS Germany Main Event

Another partypoker LIVE MILLIONS stop is in the books, with the Main Event of the 2018 partypoker LIVE MILLIONS Germany having come to an end. It was poker pro Viktor Blom who emerged the victor, defeating Pavel Plesuv to earn the first-place win. The partypoker LIVE MILLIONS Germany series stop was hosted by King's Casino Rosvadov, with several tournaments on offer. Only thirteen players would return for the final day of play and of that number, only eight would move on to the final table.  Blom would start the final table with an elimination after Niko Wieland went all-in with Q-J off-suit. Blom called with pocket aces, sending Wieland out the door when the board fell 2-J-6-9-K. A few more players would be eliminated before Blom would take down his second victim of the final table. Going up against partypoker’s Simao, Blom would call the poker player’s all-in and would put him out in 4th place, narrowing down the table to the final three. Once Rickie Silcock was eliminated in third place by Plesuv, it would leave the event in the heads-up competition round. The heads-up portion would be one to remember. Plesuv would hold the lead initially and gaining a 9 to 1 chip lead at one point during gameplay. However, Blom would chip his way back to the lead and the eventual win. On the final hand, Blom pushed for 35,000,000 and Plesuv called. A check-call was made by Plesuv on the flop of Q-9-K with the 45,000,000 bet of Blom. Plesuv would eventually go all-in and Blom would call with K-6. His king’s held up as Plesuv only had a Q-7 of diamonds, not enough to claim the first place win. The MILLIONS poker tour now moves on with the Grand Final in Barcelona set for this April. Satellites are available for the tour stop now at partypoker. Players who take part in the Grand Final will find the series will be offering a staggering €23 million in guaranteed prize pools spread out among the many events of the series. Final Results:
