Macau Won't Authorize Crypto Gambling in Near Future

Not the brightest piece of news for crypto enthusiasts in Macau – Paulo Martins Chan, Gaming Inspection and Co-ordination Bureau Director, stated during the G2E Asia Conference on Wednesday that Macau will not be authorizing cryptocurrency-related gambling operations. Not any time soon, in any case.

He said: “There have been no cryptocurrencies accepted in casinos and these products have not been officially introduced in Macau. […] We put a focus on financial security and from our knowledge, the Macao Monetary Authority (AMCM) also does not encourage the use or products in the market, especially in the gaming sector. We haven’t authorised any cryptocurrency related product.”

As of now, cryptocurrency deals are not illegal for private parties but AMCM has recently stated that cryptocurrencies are illegal and has urged the residents of Macau not to invest in cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Ethereum and Litecoin.

Last month, one of the residents of Macau was arrested for fraud through promotion of sales of virtual currencies, with SJM gaming operator being the target. Company, Dragon Coin, intends to launch their own junket operations based on cryptocurrencies in Q2 of this year. Their objective was to raise $500 million with the help of local junket partners. Martins Chan has explained that DICJ, “immediately stated in co-operation with AMCM that that company doesn’t belong to any gaming operator in Macau, any junket operator or VIP gaming promotor, so it doesn’t have any relationship with Macau.”

Journalism's Ink-Stained Wretches

Journalism's Ink-Stained Wretches
Journalism's Ink-Stained Wretches

The year was 1967. I was working as a reporter on a weekly newspaper in Phoenix, AZ. when I received a call from my friend and former editor Dave Molina. He was in Los Angeles working as a copy editor for the Herald-Examiner.

'Want a job on a real newspaper,' were his opening words. 'There's an opening here and if you move fast you can have it.'

He gave me the name of the Herald-Examiner's managing editor. I called him, we had a lengthy conversation, and he hired me over the phone. That was how I went to work as a general assignment reporter for the Los Angeles Herald-Examiner, home of the ink-stained wretches of the fourth estate.

A week later I entered the antiquated building at 1111 S. Broadway that housed the Hearst newspaper. As I walked up the creaky stairwell to the fourth floor where the editorial offices were located, I passed Walter Winchell, the Her-Ex's syndicated Hollywood columnist. He was talking with another Herald-Examiner reporter James Bacon, who had written a best-selling book, 'Hollywood Is A Four-Letter Town.'

'Wow,' I thought. 'I'm with the big boys.'

It didn't take long for me to discover that nearly all of the Herald-Examiner's editorial staff members were drinkers. City Editor Tom Caton, sports writer Al Stump, rewrite reporter Walt Egger, all of them were proud of their ability to drink. Molina and I tried to fit in with their lifestyle.

Every two weeks we cashed our checks at Corky's Bar and Grill, a favorite hangout of the Her-Ex staff. Stump was a successful freelance magazine writer who had published articles in Esquire and True. He had even written a couple of books on baseball legend Ty Cobb.

When I found out about that, I told Stump my Uncle Ott had watched Cobb play baseball.

'He said Cobb would sit in the dugout and use a file to sharpen the spikes on his shoes,' I told Stump.

He nodded. 'He was a mean S.O.B.,' Stump said.

Cobb, a native of Georgia, was a hard drinker and gambler. He was also notoriously cheap. After he hired Stump to ghostwrite his autobiography, 'My Life In Baseball,' they began meeting at his mansion for the interviews.

There was only one problem. It was winter and the place had no electricity. Cobb was involved in a battle with the power company over a bill and the company had turned the electricity off.

'We sat at the table in overcoats shivering while I conducted the interviews,' he said. 'Cobb was unbelievably stubborn when it came to money.'

Cobb was not doing well physically when Doubleday Publishing Co. advanced him $6,000 to write the book. He split the fee with Stump. After the book was published, he died a short time later at the age of 74.

'He would call me up at all hours of the night and ask me to drive him to a casino,' Stump recalled. 'He loved to drink and gamble. Cobb was a tough guy to deal with but I liked him and I'd haul myself out of bed to take him where he wanted to go.'

He said Cobb was very demanding on what he wanted in the book and maintained a tight editorial control on its contents. Stump added that he didn't feel the book reflected the true nature of the baseball player and after his death he wrote a follow-up book called 'Cobb' which was made into a movie.

The film only did about $1 million at the box office before the distributor took it out of the theaters.

I also became friends with James Bacon, a syndicated writer who covered Hollywood. In his book, 'Hollywood Is A Four-Letter Town,' he devoted a chapter to the night he made love to Marilyn Monroe.

She was staying in a cottage on the property of a well-known film producer. The man was in his 70s and Marilyn was his mistress, according to Stump.

'I went over to the cottage and was interviewing Marilyn for an article,' he said. 'We were drinking Dom Perignon champagne when things got romantic. I'll never forget that night.'

I stayed with the Herald-Examiner from 1967 to 1971, covering some big stories including the Charles Manson 'family' murders and trial; the 1969 Los Angeles earthquake; the return of the USS Pueblo crew; the Pentagon Papers; and many other events. It was the best newspaper I ever worked for and I will always be grateful to Molina for making that phone call.

VOLT and UntoldCasino Take Off

LCB can sometimes work as a crystal ball, for we have insight into the future… No, we are not soothsayers, nor do we have any shred of clairvoyance whatsoever – it just happens to be that we have a few birdies out there who do let out a chirp or two about things to come. So, for instance we can foresee that in August of this year, we will have another new casino launched under the mysterious moniker of Untold Casino!

While there is certainly not much to go by at this point, Untold Casino’s official site is still under construction and there you'll find an enigmatic figure next to an even more enigmatic gambling machine, executed in a style that is reminiscent of cubism or modern art at least. The “under construction” meter shows that the website is about ¾ done and if you subscribe to the site's newsletter now, you will get a double welcome bonus! We know for sure that the casino will feature both slot and table games, powered by Finnplay and has UKGC and MGA licenses. The website will be aimed at, but not limited to, UK, Canada, Germany and Scandinavian countries.

Way more info is known about the VOLT, a Malta-licensed, Wazdan-powered online casino that already has a NetEnt, Microgaming and BeeFee suite of games on hand. Aiming to be “the lightning bolt in the online casino world,” the electrifying web venue already has a website set up, which features a slick, modern design dominated by teal and white colors. Slot games, as well as table games, video poker and sports betting can be enjoyed at this casino which presents newbies with a special welcome offer over the first three deposits – with only 1x wagering requirement, newcomers get 150 extra spins.

Wazdan, who is making their entire portfolio available at VOLT Casino, had their Head of Sales Andrzej Hyla comment on this latest venture: “Wazdan's games deliver a feature-rich experience for players, that's why we selected them with Microgaming and NetEnt. We believe our initial line-up provides amazing choice for players. We look forward to being a spark that ignites passion in the players.”

VOLT Casino's Daphne Xerri says: “We hope to build on this relationship in future with more Wazdan content being made available to VOLT Casino and our growing customer base. Our games have been a popular choice with players across multiple jurisdictions and brands so are a good strategic choice by VOLT Casino. We wish VOLT Casino every success with their electrifying new venture.”

LCB will be bringing you updates on both of these casinos as more news appear, so stay tuned and watch this space…

Codeta Tournament

This is Michael Shackleford, the "Wizard of Odds," on assignment for LCB. The topic of this article is a very interesting tournament they are running at Codeta. Here are the primary rules:

The tournament runs May 8 to May 20, 2018. All live dealer games evidently qualify. This would include blackjack, single-zero roulette, baccarat, Three Card Poker, Ultimate Texas Hold 'Em, Caribbean Stud Poker, and Casino Hold 'Em. There is €2,500 in prize money, to be distributed to the top ten spots. The rules say, "The score starts counting after at least 30 rounds and at least one win." I am not sure how to interpret this. Do the first 30 rounds count, assuming at least one win? My interpretation of this rule is that they don't bother to calculate a score until you've played at least 30 rounds, with at least one win. So, I do think the first 30 rounds count, they just don't start counting until hand 30. I asked support for clarification, but the agent didn't know. The player's score is a function of the ratio of hands he wins and the winning odds he got on those wins. Below is a screenshot of the exact formula.


The strategy in typical live casino tournaments is to go big or go bust trying. The greater the number of competing players, the more you should seek variance. Don't be afraid to take some big chances. If you lose, then lose with nothing. Your chips are your ammunition. Don't lose with ammunition in your pocket.

However, this tournament is a lot different. The only commonality with conventional tournament strategy is to seek variance. Achieving a certain winning goal is not important in this one.

In this particular tournament the prize money is rather small so I would keep your bets small and fun. It isn't important how much you win, but the frequency of wins and the winning odds. For purposes of this tournament, it is better to win $35 on a $1 bet in roulette than $100 on a $100 bet. That 35 to 1 win will help your average payout ratio.

Another important factor to this tournament is it rewards quantity of wins. Note that the numbers of wins are taken to the power of 1.5, but the number of losses aren't.

To analyze strategy I put various scenarios through Excel to calculate the score of someone with average luck. Based on this, my advice is to make only $1 single-number bets in roulette, one spin at a time. Then do that as much as you conveniently can. Keep in mind the prize pool is not that big so I wouldn't devote your entire week to this. You may lose more to the house edge in roulette than you win in the tournament. As always in any casino, keep it fun and in moderation.

In closing, I'd like to commend Codeta on this interesting and unique tournament format. Hopefully we'll see more such tournaments in the future. I'd happily play along if they didn't prohibit US players.
