Player Nabs $206K on Book of Aztec at BitStarz

An experienced player who has transcended the limits of two-dimensional betting in regular currencies, has managed to shake the increasingly popular online venue BitStarz from its pants on June 10th, after hitting a monster win on Book of Aztec. The punter from Venezuela now owns a bank account with an additional $206,551 in Bitcoin but there’s more! This lucky Chamo, which is local for "bro" or "dude", has already milked the very same casino, and walked away with $480,702.

Let’s face it, things haven’t been easy for Venezuelans lately, since the country is in the midst of economic and political crisis, especially after the death of its former president, Hugo Chavez. The entire quandary is additionally burdened with severe food and medicine shortages, as well as soaring crime rates, making it extremely difficult to cling onto something. But enough about politics, as someone once said, and let’s talk some Bitcoins – or 27.5 of them to be precise.

The supplier behind Book of Aztec is Amatic Industries, which is already known throughout the entire industry mostly for producing slots with regular jackpots. According to the casino’s marketing manager, this is the exact reason why the venue made it part of its impeccable gaming collection, now counting over 1,300 titles! All players like winning big bucks, and delivering riches has become quite often at BitStarz, added the manager. In the last couple of months, players have rocked the reels of Football Superstar, Diamond Vapor, Wolf Gold and other, earning almost $500,000!

BitStarz congratulated the winner on a small fortune and invited all broad-minded gamesters to join the winning streak; additional $500 (or 5 BTC) welcome package including 20 no deposit free spins should boost their account by large and launch them on a gaming adventure of mega proportions. Good luck, punters…

Captain Kirk Goes Bitcoin Mining

Captain Kirk Goes Bitcoin Mining
Captain Kirk Goes Bitcoin Mining

Bitcoin – the final frontier. Apparently, not even aging TV stars are immune to the lure of digital currencies as seen via the example of William Shatner, whose stardom rose to prominence decades ago in the hit TV sci-fi series, Star Trek, in which he played the admirable and unshakable James T. Kirk, captain of the starship Enterprise.

Shatner, 87, who's known to transcend the boundaries (his kiss with Uhura in the 1968 episode of the series is incorrectly cited as the first interracial kiss portrayed on US television) is apparently spending his senior days – mining Bitcoin! That's what he admitted to Solar Alliance startup after proclaiming him their celebrity spokesperson. Shatner then went on to say that this is not even his first foray into the cryptocurrency world, although he admits he is not 100% sure what he's doing most of the time.

In an interview with Chicago Tribune, Shatner said: “The concept is so, I guess the word is bizarre. You have to blank your mind and say, ‘What is blockchain, again? How does mining operate, again?’ The concepts are really strange, and yet when you begin to grasp it, it makes sense.” For him, it all began in 2014 when he was sent some Bitcoin tokens by a fan, only for the actor to Tweet soon after: “What the heck is a bit coin?”

Solar Alliance is battling a barrage of criticism coming from the environmentalist groups who are adamant that Bitcoin mining wastes resources. This is why Solar Alliance is ready to take on a feat of spreading out on 14 acres of land in the Midwest, install solar panels there and harvest the sun's energy to generate the power Bitcoin miners need to do their stuff.

Murphysboro, the Illinois town of 10,000 inhabitants, has already offered 165,000 of square feet in a vacant factory to the company to be converted for mining operations. Its Mayor Stephens said that the town is “like a lot of Middle America, have seen job losses because of a change in the worldwide economy. From my perspective, we’re going to have someone who will occupy a previously derelict property, and whatever development comes out of it will just make it more marketable if the project is not successful.” Miners can rent the space there and get some free coaching and advice from the company members.

Shatner was approached by Solar Alliance when they outfitted his own home by coincidence, saying he'd help them run the facility when it's operational. “I’m in Chicago a lot, and I live in Kentucky part of the time. I might very well do that. It’s an interesting idea to see it at work because … it’s so esoteric that it’s difficult to understand.”

Iron Dog Releases Si Xiang Slot

Iron Dog Releases Si Xiang Slot
Iron Dog Releases Si Xiang Slot

In the last 6 months or more, there has been a flood of games whose subject matter revolves around the ancient Chinese culture, with one of the more recent releases being Play’n Go’s Fu Er Dai slot. We happen to love the trend, as we feel that Chinese culture is so vast and beautiful that it certainly deserves all kinds of exposure. Also, its market is enormous, so there's some healthy commercial reasoning behind it, as well.

This time around, however, it's Iron Dog Studio, a 1x2 Gaming subsidiary, that went full Far East and released a game of exotic beauty and charm with Chinese mythology in mind – Si Xiang. The game's official description reads: “In Chinese mythology the skies were divided by four mythological creatures that guarded the world and Iron Dog Studios Si Xiang’ unleashes these tremendous mythological beasts into a spectacular slot.”

This 5-reel game has all the visual cues inherent to Chinese architecture of old, particularly the sacred spots like temples and places of worship. The main game's backdrops are set in a thriving big city. Once the Extra Spins mode is triggered, that changes to a remote landscape with some cool-looking clouds in the shape of a dragon.

Its key features include the expanding symbols of The Azure Dragon, Vermillion Bird, White Tiger and Wild Tortoise. A special Yin Yang symbol that sits outside of the reels, to the left, will release multiple features at specific points during the game. When Yin Yang lands on a winning combo, it will give out multipliers and can even unleash some of the wild beasts.

The game is playable on smartphones and tablet devices just as well as on desktop computers.

Here is the neat game preview:

WinADay Adds Crypto & New Games For 10th Birthday

Doesn’t time fly when we’re enjoying ourselves? Who would think that WinADay Casino is already celebrating its 10th birthday next week? Anyway, it’s been an incredible year for the venue, as it not only launched five new games and cryptocurrency support, but also witnessed a site-wide progressive jackpot in a record-breaking $277,482 chunk. To mark the beginning of another successful decade in business, the innovative betting site is ready to release an entirely new addition called Vegas Vibes, accompanied by birthday deals and a Freebie up to $100, both available until June 28th.

After introducing cryptocurrencies last July, Bitcoin users became more than welcome to join the venue, and both deposit and withdrawal options are now available. Earlier in February, the casino added Litecoin, only to beef up the platform with BCH a month later, in March. The number of players who prefer betting in cryptocurrencies due to lower fees and faster processing times has been multiply increased, says the casino manager.

The platform is constantly evolving to answer the latest industry trends since players’ preferences change over time, added Michael Hilary, who has managed the venue since 2008. However, the operator’s dedication to customer service has remained unchanged, as it represents one of the key elements in running a successful gambling business.

The site’s soon-to-be-launched Vegas Vibes slot will bring the thrills of Las Vegas, thanks to a bonus round that awards up to 15 free games with a 3X bet multiplier! The casino’s progressive jackpot is nearly $200,000 and rising, so hitting five Elvis symbols with a max bet could payout some life-changing amounts, comments Hilary.

If you want to enjoy all birthday bonuses, which are available from June 20th to June 28th, and earn a freebie along the way, make at least one deposit and use the bonus code, BDAYFREEBIE, to begin. An introductory bonus for Vegas Vibes includes 111% bonus on deposits of $25 to $250 and the bonus code is, TRYME111.

The Velvet Blackjack

Latest Casino Bonuses
The Velvet Blackjack
The Velvet Blackjack

I have a Canadian friend named Ace. He and I have a lot in common. We both love to gamble, we ride horses -- he grew up on a large cattle ranch in Canada -- and we appreciate beautiful women.

When we aren't playing poker, betting on the horses or shooting dice, we talk on a variety of subjects ranging from politics to the clever ways casinos in order to relieve people of their cash.

'They don't force you to give them your money,' Ace lamented. 'They make you want to do it.'

I asked him to explain himself.

'They hit you over the head with a velvet blackjack,' Ace said. 'It doesn't even hurt because it's made of velvet. Now I'm talking about beautiful cocktail girls in sexy outfits, free money for slot machine players, and special promotions that lure you into the poker rooms or blackjack tables. The casinos are offering special promotions, but they are just cleverly designed scams created to take your money.

'After they overpower you with the velvet blackjack, you wake up and wonder where all your cash went. Then you repeat your performance and give it another shot.' Ace shook his head. 'People never learn.'

Back in the 1800s when the West was overrun by prospectors searching for gold, gambling saloons sprung up everywhere. The games of chance varied widely from legitimate to crooked. Your chances of being cheated in a gambling saloon were about 50 percent.

While towns made an effort to maintain law and order, many gambling disputes erupted into violence. Some saloons even had signs posted directing gamblers to check their guns with the bartender or a security officer.

'What's really amazing to me,' said Ace, 'is the fact that so much money changes hands in a casino and yet the violence is kept at a minimum. I guess it's the velvet blackjack syndrome at work. People lose their bankroll and tap into their credit cards until they use up all their cash. Then they just shrug off their losses, go home, and when they accumulate more money they come back again for another session.

'Back in the Old West, the loser would probably have shot up the place and would have either ended up dead or in jail.'

I agreed with Ace's observations. Actually, I am very impressed with the way most gamblers conduct themselves, whether they are winning or losing. It helps, of course, for a casino to have good security personnel mingling with the gamblers and heading off trouble before it becomes violent.

During my many years as a gadabout journalist and gambler, I can count on one hand the incidents of violence I have witnessed in a casino setting. They were limited to fistfights and in one case a shooting at the Showboat Casino in Las Vegas. Nobody was injured -- the shooter was too inebriated from tequila to shoot straight -- and the person with the gun was quickly arrested.

Casinos have perfected the use of the velvet blackjack and I have to hand it to them. They know how to manage the show and how to keep the customers coming back for more. That velvet blackjack is a marvelous invention.

Sports Betting In California By 2020?

The state of California could legalize sports betting in 2020 according to an initiative that was proposed on Monday, June 11th by a political consultant of Cali card clubs. Mr. Russell Lowery said that the citizens of the Golden State will have an opportunity to express their opinion on a November ballot in two years including online and out-of-state gambling services, as well as sports leagues. The gaming industry has shown interest in a ballot and after a formal request, Lowery contacted the state attorney general’s office to assemble a title and formulate a possible initiative.

According to Lowery, two major aspects in betting on sports need to be taken seriously – consumer protection and revenue. The state could generate additional income from legal activity and the public could feel safer in a regulated gambling environment. Thanks to the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision to lift a federal ban on sports wagering, the state is entitled to propose a separate bill in the California Legislature. However, the talks have only just begun, and Lowery cannot reveal the identity of the gambling companies that have expressed interest in a ballot measure.

Meanwhile, republican gubernatorial candidate, John Cox, announced President Trump’s full support, as well as a campaign against Democrat, Gavin Newsom. The November general election is not going to be all about Trump, since he is viewed unfavorably in California. Still, Trump’s recent endorsement played a major role in Cox’s ability to consolidate the GOP vote and the candidate is now ready to redeem for the 2016 election, when he voted for Libertarian, Gary Johnson.

Newsom expressed his opinion on Monday night, while responding to Trump’s tweet, in which he congratulated Cox on his second-place finish. The Democrat has also asked the President to come to California and campaign for Cox as much as possible.

North Korea to Open a Casino Resort

North Korea to Open a Casino Resort

This week's most unlikely story is brought to you by the pending de-nuclearization agreement to take place next week in Singapore between the two old adversaries, North Korea and the US. As we all know by now, Singapore will be the venue of the historical meeting between the leaders of the two nations – Kim Jong-un and Donald Trump. It is widely expected that the official treaty will be signed that will see North Korea dismantle their nuclear weapon reactors and facilities and in exchange for which, the US will withdraw their troops and arms from the military bases in South Korea.

That is what we knew. But here is the icing on the cake. That's not the only concession US will make – apparently, they are asked to invest into the future North Korean casino and tourism resort on the coastal region of Wonsan-Kalma where Kim Jong-un already began and oversaw the construction!

Yes, you read that right: international gambling and tourists hurling to North Korea, notorious for their isolationist politics.

How fast and unexpected the world changes, huh?

According to reports in the nation’s Donga Ilbo newspaper, the senior North Korea official who visited President Trump in his Oval Office at the White House last week proposed the cooperative project that is estimated to bring in about $50 million per year and should attract 2.6 million of South Korean tourists on annual basis! The construction, already underway by civilians and army men, should be finalized before April 15th next year. Apparently, Trump was very keen on the project and will most likely accept the proposal – after all, the North Korean delegate knew very well where to come knocking: Trump is the renowned casino mogul, having owned properties in Las Vegas and Trump Taj Mahal in Atlantic City.

Surprisingly to some, the country is not completely devoid of gambling: there are a few casinos in capital Pyongyang and another one in Rason, near the border with China. The country also operates some betting websites, but they are, apparently, mostly used for stealing private data from users and are nothing but scams. Having an international casino resort funded by USA and open to tourists would mean having some proper regulations in place.

The meeting between the US and North Korean high officials will be the first summit of this kind in almost 70 years, since the Korean war.

If you're about to make the world at least a tiny bit safer than before by neutralizing the nuclear threat, you might as well do some business. What do you think of this story, will it ever come into fruition? Can you imagine North Korea becoming more open to foreigners, even if it's in the interest of the state for them to be spending a lot of cash? Let us know in the comments below…

My Most Interesting Interviews
My Most Interesting Interviews

I've said this before and I'll say it again: I love getting questions from my readers on this website.

People who gamble are deep. They are intriguing and their interests are wide-ranging. Their intelligence quotient (IQ) is wide-ranging and the following email I received from a woman in Tallahassee, FL. bears me out.

'Dear Geno,' she wrote. 'I have been a member of this website for years and I must say I enjoy your articles. From what I have read, you have interviewed some pretty famous people as a reporter and magazine writer. Who is the most interesting person you have ever interviewed? June W., Tallahassee, FL.'

Whew! What a challenging question!

This isn't an easy one for me to answer. I began my career as a journalist in the early 1960s and have interviewed literally thousands of people since those early days.

Even today things happen that cause me to reflect on some of those interviews. Tonight, for example, I was switching channels on our television set and came across a movie about Johnny Cash, 'I Walk The Line,' starring Joaquin Phoenix.

The film got pretty emotional for me because Cash was the kind of guy that had an emotional effect on people. I think I even teared up when Johnny asked June Carter to marry him while they were singing a duet at one of their concerts.

Cash had given her a pretty rough time during the early years of their relationship because of his addiction to pills and other drugs. But he finally kicked his drug habit, started going to church with her, and eventually convinced her that she should become his wife. They stayed together until her death and Cash passed away four months later.

Who was the most interesting person I ever interviewed? My answer would have to be all of them, in their own way.

Richard Nixon talked about baseball and politics. He laughed when I told him my father was a lifelong Democrat and would never vote for him.

Ronald Reagan had the ability to make every person he met feel like they were the most important individual in the room. He captured the hearts of the teachers at a Christian school in North Phoenix where I met him and followed him around from classroom to classroom.

He told me he was a good friend of Sen. Ted Kennedy and said it was sad that Kennedy loved alcohol so much, adding, 'That's why he probably will never be President.'

And then there was Willie Nelson. Willie was impossible to interview. He had too many friends and hangers-on who filled his dressing room and backstage wherever he performed. I suspect it's still that way for Willie even though he recently marked his 85th birthday.

Country Western singer George Jones had tears running down his face when he talked about Tammy Wynette. He claimed she was the only woman he ever wrote a song for and I could tell he meant it.

I played poker against Desi Arnaz and Steve McQueen. Neither of them was a very good poker player, but they just played for fun and didn't mind losing the money. Arnaz still loved Lucille Ball and lived alone in his Palm Springs, CA. mansion until his death.

B.B. King and Redd Fox were gamblers. King shot dice and Fox played keno and poker. They never talked show business while they were gambling.

I took Hank Williams Jr. on a wild jackrabbit hunt at midnight along a canal road near Clovis, N.M. He didn't have a good relationship with his mother and shortly after he turned 18 he severed his relationship with her because he blamed her for his father's death.

When I was writing for People Magazine, I met and interviewed actor Richard Burton in New York. Before he agreed to the interview, he made me promise I would not ask him any questions about 'her,' meaning Elizabeth Taylor -- they had separated from one another. Then for the next two hours, the only person he talked about was Liz.

Sorry, June. I really can't tell you who my most interesting interview was because each person I interviewed fascinated me. I hope this column came close to answering your challenging question.
