New Scorcese Casino Film

Posted by Gareth on: Monday, Sep. 1st 2014 2:41 PM

Yes, I know this is a casino site, not a film site, but, I’m guessing that anyone with the vaguest interest in playing at casinos probably has seen the original film ‘Casino’ that Scorcese directed in 1995. And, I’m also guessing that it may be at least in their top 100 favourite films, or even their top 20.

Set in Las Vegas, the film charted the rise of a mob owned casino, and starred Scorcese’s long time collaborator, Robert De Niro. It also featured Joe Pesci in his usual role as the psychopath. Unfortunately, Scorcese is not making another casino based feature film, but a ‘film short’.

Greatest Gambler Of All Time

Posted by Gareth on: Friday, Aug. 29th 2014 3:14 PM

We all dream of hitting that big run, and for some of us mere mortals walking away from a casino with a few grand or even a few hundred in our pockets is enough to keep us smiling, and hopefully we have the sense to stay away for a bit so that it doesn’t go straight back into the casino’s tills.

There are are however some players out there who are not satisfied with a few grand, and they keep on upping the stakes and refusing to back down. This is when the elusive ‘run’ is hit, and obviously it can go either way, but for one man, Archie Karas, that run took him from a mere $50 to an unbelievable $40 million over a three year period.

Betfair Casino Signs Deal With NetEnt

Posted by Kath on: Thursday, Aug. 28th 2014 7:05 AM

Betfair Casino really do offer a great all round casino experience and much of this is because they source games from several software suppliers. The brand is licensed across many countries and though powered by the popular Playtech software draws games from several sources including IGT, NextGen and Williams interactive. However this week the news has broken that the brand has signed a brand new deal with NetEnt so players can expect to see an even great volume of games on site!

It’s little wonder Betfair Casino is so highly regarded, games from different suppliers mean that one casino can offer everything you may have to visit four or five single operator casinos for and this deal with NetEnt is sure to solidify the casino’s place in the market.

Aspers Casino Continue The Good Works

Posted by Gareth on: Wednesday, Aug. 27th 2014 12:36 PM

Aspers Casinos have been busy lately (as usual), not just setting up the tables and the wheels but with charitable works and event which are a regular feature on their calendar. Generally they like to keep it local, supporting causes in Stratford, other areas, as well as their ‘pet project’ the Aspinall Foundation which houses and returns captured animals to the wilds.

Their latest charity drive for the Aspinall Foundation was the ever popular, but grueling Three Peaks Challenge which was completed by nine members from Aspers’ Northampton Casino. If you don’t know what the challenge is all about then read on to hear about some impressive charity work, there was a lot more to it than a bucket over freezing water over the head.

Would Chippendales Increase Female Online Gaming?

Posted by Gareth on: Monday, Aug. 25th 2014 10:58 AM

While statistics should always be treated with a pinch of salt, it must be be said that there is no smoke without fire. It’s just a question of how much store you put in research, and how much you are prepared to risk based on information garnered through sources that can be ‘questionable’.

There is research, and there is research! However, when it comes to research on casino players, it has to be said that there is probably no better source of information than online casinos themselves. They generally have the demographics right in front them, which can be extracted from players’ sign up data. So, when a company like Europa Casino says that “over 60% of online bingo players are female”, you’d be inclined to believe with them.

Bet365 In Hot Water Over Advertising

Posted by Gareth on: Friday, Aug. 22nd 2014 10:30 AM

Casinos are continually falling foul of the Advertising Standards Authority often on issues of ‘poor taste’, whereby they get caught out for what they think the punters may find amusing, but the ‘general public’ do not, Paddy Power’s Oscar Pistorius print advert being a classic example. They are however, usually too savvy to launch anything that may be construed as misleading.

Bet 365 have come under fire in Australia for their $200 ‘free bet’ as the Australian Competition & Consumer Commission (ACCC) have actually launched legal action against the betting group, claiming that Bet 365 are breaking the law.

Raw Casino Launches

Posted by Gareth on: Friday, Aug. 15th 2014 11:04 AM

There’s a new kid on the block, Raw Casino, and from what we’ve seen it may be a contender! Launched in August 2014 the site is not another ‘gimmicky’ casino site, but quite simply offers a good gaming experience, and bonus system.

The design isn’t too flashy, but to be honest that’s what we like, we’d much rather play on a site that has been designed with the player in mind, rather than a walking advert with nothing much to back it up.
