Spin3 is to enter the South American market, and will introduce its suite of mobile casino games and systems at the SAGSE gaming exhibition in Argentina this month. Matti Zinder, head of Spin3, said, “The prospects for mobile gambling in South America are extremely exciting. When you marry an enormous demand for mobile gambling with the necessary legal and regulatory framework, you have a land full of opportunity. We feel now is the perfect moment to lay our cards on the table.” Spin3’s recently launched portfolio of games for the iPhone will also make their South American debut at SAGSE.

Mirada Gaming has launched its Virtual Dealer Roulette product. Capable of being streamed online, on TV and simultaneously across various platforms, the product plays pre-recorded clips in real-time based on numbers generated by the company’s random number generator. Mirada’s chief executive, Jose-Luis Vazquez, said: “Games need to be fun, visual, provide a sense of community and these are all the ingredients we are adding to traditional gambling products. The result is a video roulette that stands out from the competition, applies to both on-line and interactive TV worlds and offers platform operators a great way to differentiate their offer for a fraction of the cost of live dealer solutions.”

Ruling in Kentucky domains case expected next week


Citar
Defense attorneys had their day in court Tuesday as they tried to convince Judge Thomas Wingate to dismiss Kentucky's attempt to seize 141 online gambling domains.

Wingate spent over three hours hearing oral arguments about Kentucky's bid to shut down online gambling in Kentucky by seizing the domains of gambling sites. And at the end of the hearing, Wingate indicated that he would issue his ruling on Oct. 15.

"The lawyers representing the 141 domains did an excellent job of pointing out issues of law that show the Commonwealth didn't have the authority to do this," said John Pappas, executive director of the Poker Players Alliance.

Last week, the PPA filed an amicus brief arguing that poker sites should not be included in the state's action because poker is a skill game.

"I also believe that there was a sense from the judge that he was fully understanding the impact of his order," Pappas said.

"It was an educational process and good listening session for the judge," said Jennifer Brislin, communications director for the Justice and Public Safety Cabinet, which filed the lawsuit on behalf of the government.

"We have a very strong case and nothing that happened yesterday did anything to diminish that," Brislin added.

Tuesday's hearing focused on standing, whether Kentucky has jurisdiction over domain names and arguments that domain names were not illegal gambling devices.

Next week's ruling is expected to be about those issues, Brislin told Casino City. The judge might also "lay out the plan for going forward" with the forfeiture hearing, Brislin said.

Lasseters shuts down online casino


Citar
AUSTRALIA -- (PRESS RELEASE) -- Following the recent closure of its AusVegas.com.au domain, Australia's Lasseters Corporation Limited has announced that its Lasseters.com.au online casino has also shut.

Effective immediately, Lasseters' flagship brand has ceased all online operations due to the company's inability to compete and retain its market share after the closure of the American market due to the passage of the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act (UIGEA) of 2006.

"On September 9, 2008, the shares in Lasseters Corporation Limited were suspended from quotation at the request of the company pending discussions with its parent company regarding continuation of financial support," read a statement on Lasseters.com.au posted on Friday.

"The discussions are still ongoing and the suspension continues to be in place.

"A review on the viability of the online casino operations was made and the board of Lasseters Corporation Limited is of the view that the ability of the online casino to turn around is very remote, despite continuous support from the parent company over the last two years. The online casino has suffered continuous losses and faces numerous constraints resulting in the company's online casino not being able to remain competitive.

"The company accordingly advises that it will today cease taking bets on the company's online casino sites."
