My First Land Casino Experience

Posted by Kath on: Thursday, Jul. 31st 2014 7:30 AM

I’ve been writing about, and frequenting online casinos for about 10 years now, but I’d never stepped foot into a real casino. Images of James Bond, sophistication, and some secret code of conduct have already pervaded my mind whilst considering the experience, and I don’t mind admitting I found the idea of visiting quite daunting.

I’m a woman, rather than a James Bond style, suave sophisticated man, and this may be behind my reticence to try out the experience. It’s something I’ve always wanted to do, but never actually got around to doing.

Labour May Increase Sports Betting Taxes

Posted by Gareth on: Friday, Jul. 25th 2014 11:26 AM

There has been a lot of policy shifting by the Treasury over the past few years. The new ‘age of austerity’ has prompted all parties to consider new ways to generate money from a variety of sources, and changes in taxation legislation have been at the forefront. And, the online gaming industry may be about to take a hit if Labour get in come the 2015 General Election.

Ironically, the Conservatives have over the years been more than lenient with gambling taxation considering their Thatcheresque roots, ‘Victorian values’, and supposed religious affiliations. The latest example of their leniency is the reduction of tax on land based bingo halls, they will however claw back money from the online bingo operations in the near future.

Drive By casino Shooter Gets 3 Years

Posted by Gareth on: Wednesday, Jul. 23rd 2014 11:08 AM

How drunk is too drunk to be playing at a casino? Recently in the States a punter brought a lawsuit against a casino for allowing him to play and lose a huge amount of money whilst playing drunk at the tables. Over here there doesn’t appear to be any specific legislation or guidance on exactly how much is too much alcohol in a casino.

However recently a Newcastle man made it clear that he had definitely drank over the limit when he returned to Aspers Casino and fired shots from a revolver after having been ejected earlier. Luckily no-one was hurt in the incident, although door staff may have been a bit traumatised after thinking that the assailant was gunning for them.

Blackpool To Get Super Casino?

Posted by Gareth on: Wednesday, Jul. 16th 2014 12:36 PM

Blackpool was initially earmarked for a Super Casino along with several other cities in the UK, but Gordon Brown put the kaibosch on them in 2007. But, Blackpool is trying it’s hand again at grabbing one of those very difficult to obtain licences, only two of which currently exist, both held by Aspers Casinos.

Blackpool is represented in the House of Lords by Lord McNally who is putting across the case that the city actually needs a Super Casino if it is to maintain it’s already slipping crown of Britain’s ultimate seaside entertainment destination. Apparently the resort is not doing that well of late, and a super casino may just be that vital injection to get it back to its former glory.
