AU Slots Punter Wins $145,000

Today's piece of new regarding fortunate events unfolding at casinos worldwide comes from AU Slots Casino and it's a story of how patience pays off, and how a small amount of money can turn into piles of cash when you least expect it.

With summer vacations looming, everyone is hoping for some extra spending cash before the fun in the sun begins. Such was the case with a certain 35-year-old Australian who decided to try his luck on slot machines of his liking – who knows, he may be the one to hit the winning streak if stubborn enough.

On Friday, May 18th, he began by depositing $180 on IgTech Pokie: 3 Witches game. Two days later (thirty hours to be more precise), the $180 dollars turned into a whopping $145,000, thanks to a streak of carefully executed wins on this game!

While the identity of the lucky punter remains unknown (he decided to keep his anonymity), you don't have to know the man's name to come to the realization that this was one major win that will not be repeated often. Our fondest congratulations to the lucky player…

The casino is renowned for its offer of extra spins with no wagering requirements, free loyalty gifts every Monday and a huge array of game suppliers. Its signup bonus is 100% up to $150, plus you get 50 extra spins and the best part? They're one of the eligible casinos in LCB's Reward Program, meaning if you make your first deposit at the site, you get a $3 LCB chip for our Shop!

Ocean Resort Casino to Feature William Hill Sportsbook

Ocean Resort Casino to Feature William Hill Sportsbook

June 28th will be a major day for Atlantic City, quite possibly the most crucial in its recent history. This is the day that will see the opening of two new major casino resorts: Hard Rock Atlantic City and Ocean Resort Casino. Some news coming from the latter tells us that a sportsbook provided by the world-renowned, UK-based, William Hill is to be included in Ocean Resort's offer from day one.

Ocean Resort Casino is built on the foundations of the former Revel Casino. Their punters, which are expected to come rushing in, in the thousands the minute the new resort opens its doors, will now have the chance to try their sport wagering expertise and knowledge using one of the leading brands in sports betting. The Sportsbook alone will take up to 7,500 square feet of gaming space with suites for up-scale players for placing bets on various events – the most exciting of which will be the 2018 FIFA World Cup that will be well underway when ORC officially opens.

As we have recently reported, the US Supreme Court has passed the legislation allowing New Jersey to legalize sports betting, opening the door for all other US states to proceed as they wish in that regard, effectively launching a full-scale sports betting legalization country-wide.

Property where Ocean Resort Casino was built was sold to Colorado's developer, Bruce Deifik, for $200 million. He then invested another $200 million in renovation of premises. William Hill, on the other hand, is already well-established on the US market, currently managing 115 sportsbook operating in Nevada.

NetEnt Player Strikes Whopping €3.7M Jackpot

Leading provider of premium casino content with offices all around the world, NetEnt, has successfully continued its renowned jackpot streak, after a player from Sweden managed to strike a gigantic win, totaling €3,773,845.27 while playing the company’s groundbreaking Mega FortuneTM­ slot at LeoVegas! According to the supplier, the winner had staked only €4.80 before hitting the immense sum, at the beginning of May. By announcing the latest big win, software giants have continued to lead in jackpot games with massive millionaire-making prizes, paying already an astonishing sum of €19,799,183 in 2018 alone!

Chief product officer at the company, Henrik Fagerlund, said that jackpots are an integral component of NetEnt’s business strategy and that seeing players win life-changing amounts always make them happy, as it confirms the groups dedication and good work. Providing exceptional gaming experience, as well as moments like this is the very essence of iGaming, and the company hopes that good luck will follow everyone during the summer.

Mega FortuneTM is definitely among the most popular online slots of all times, as only a few other games have managed to trigger so many jackpots, including Mega Moolah, Hall of Gods and Mega Fortune Dreams. The game’s secret lies within choosing bets and lines but also optional multi-coin line bets. Players can place up to 4 coins on each active line, toggle the 'bet level' and reconfigure the lines manually.

Earlier this year, on January 23rd, another player made his first millions after striking massive €2,553,604.67 on the same game, only a few days after signing-up at the venue SlotsMillion. A UK-based punter, who remained completely anonymous has actually won the first progressive jackpot in 2018, announcing an entire streak of further grand prizes, such as the one from May.

US Justice Department Investigates Bitcoin Price Manipulation

Latest Casino Bonuses
US Justice Department Investigates Bitcoin Price Manipulation
US Justice Department Investigates Bitcoin Price Manipulation

Bloomberg is reporting that the US Justice Department is preparing an in-depth criminal investigation concerning the big fluctuations of Bitcoin and Ethereum prices in the last 6 months. Bitcoin's story was one of ups and downs for a long time now and this prompted a full-on market manipulation probe. For this endeavor, the Justice Department will be assisted by numerous other agencies and helped by US Commodities Futures Trading Commission which has declared cryptocurrencies as such.

This investigation will concern such illegitimate practice and processes as spoofing, which influences the value of the currency and its price by placing false orders on exchanges that are then withdrawn. The increased volume of placing orders prompt people to buy and sell the currency in larger amounts. Another form of market and price manipulation is wash trading, which creates the illusion of increased market activity by having only certain members of the market trade the currency between themselves.

John Griffin, University of Texas finance warns against the risks in the market of digital currencies: “There’s very little monitoring of manipulative trading, spoofing and wash trading. It would be easy to spoof this market.”

Trading of cryptocurrencies is divided into a fragmented platform all across the globe, many of them unlicensed and unregistered. Due to the meteoric rise of Bitcoin in 2017 when it reached the value of almost $20,000 in December after starting out below $1,000 in January, thousands of people jumped on the investment bandwagon without being fully aware of what this entails in reality. Experts on the matter say that there are several key reasons why digital currencies are prone to fraud: huge price swings that makes valuations relative, a lack of regulations such as those that stocks have and skepticism regarding the idea that exchanges pursue cheaters.

Last week, Bitcoin fell below the $8,000 mark once again and the news of the investigation that broke out on Thursday further helped drop the cryptocurrency's value to below $7500. Its value has nosedived more than 20% since it peaked on May 4th. Despite that, cryptocurrencies still continue to be all the rage in some regions of the world and among the Bitcoin loyalists – but some countries like China and Japan have taken stern measures towards strict regulation or, in the case of China, a complete ban of cryptocurrency exchanges.
