New Site for
Online Gambling Leader
Online casinos are constantly looking to
differentiate themselves from other sites in the highly
competitive industry. Will the online casinos even last, some of
these hi tech firms must be worried? With constant news about
the regulation of the online casinos sector, perhaps some of the
internet gambling portals want to make as much profits as they
can now, before they begin to get taxed.
Online casinos have enjoyed unbelievable growth on the Internet
in recent years, and this explosive expansion has come with much
scrutiny and has created quite the crowded marketplace. But the
current state of online casinos is healthy and ripe with new
developments and news.
Many websites now cater to betting, and the poker craze that has
hit online casinos shows no signs of slowing down. Nowadays,
continued consumer interest in soccer’s World Cup attracts new
bettors and online casinos continue to experience great times.
Despite the good news for online casinos, and the increased
profits and buzz, new debates over the legality of online
casinos and the morality of Internet gambling are underway. The
U.S. House of Representatives is set to vote on a bill that
would curb Internet gambling and severely cripple the online
casinos and the means by which consumers deposit and withdraw
their money in the over $12 Billion dollar a year industry.
It is still currently against the law to operate online casinos
within the United States, but while it may be illegal to operate
the casinos inside US borders, this has not stopped millions of
Americans from playing at online casinos and visiting these
offshore gambling sites.
Many online casinos experts think that the U.S. must accept the
regulation of these websites.
Despite all of these developments, one of the top online casinos
is looking to turn its own players into shareholders.
A major gaming network added a new member to its operator ranks
this week with the admission of a new online gambling firm,
which brings with it the innovative Pokershare style approach of
attracting new customers by making their players shareholders in
the company. During the first one and a half years of business
the firm will give away 40 percent of its revenue, and 20
percent of the company shares.
“We think it’s fair that those players generating growth and
value for (the firm), should be shareholders in the company,”
said Anders Ericsson, co-founder of the gambling portal. In
addition to giving shares to their players, the online gambling
company also offers a very powerful affiliate program for those
referring friends to the site.
Mathias Ringblom, co-founder says “We are very happy to be a
part of the (large gaming firm’s) network, offering thousands of
players a huge variety of poker games and many satellites to the
biggest tournaments around the world.”
The firm is based on Malta and Curacao, The Netherlands
Antilles. The gaming license is issued to the firm in Curacao,
which is fully owned by a Malta firm.
