ONLINE POKER IN FLORIDA?
2014-02-18

The US state of Florida's Apuestas Deportivas Golf Betting March Madness Bracket 2020 current review of gambling laws may provide a tenuous foothold for the legalisation of online poker if some lawmakers have their way.
Last week the Florida Senate Gaming Committee discussed the draft of an upcoming gaming reform bill scheduled for introduction during the 2014 legislative session. The draft includes some of the recommendations of a $400,000 independent consultant's study of the Florida gambling industry as a whole.
The plan is to develop consensus on a bill that will comprehensively bring Florida gambling law up to date, operating under a gaming commission that will have authority over all gambling except the state lottery.
There is a recommendation that the Division of Pari-Mutuel Wagering, which currently regulates land poker rooms, horse and dog racing, and slot machine facilities should fall under the new gaming commission, and that existing statutes be updated to achieve this and include new gaming activities.
That "new gaming activities" phrase gave some lawmakers an opportunity to suggest the inclusion in the reform bill of provisions for legalised, taxed and regulated intrastate online poker, following the example of successful legalisation in Nevada, Delaware and New Jersey recently.
Several senators discussed the inclusion of online poker in the draft bill, noting that it was a game predominantly of skill that should fall outside the definition of illegal gambling.
However, observers have noted that there is only a small chance of the genre being included in the bill, which already faces opposition to any expansion of gambling activity and is being debated in an election year, where politicians tend to be wary of offending action groups and public opinion.
In this sort of climate the suggestion has been made that a compromise be reached with opposing groups by first making the expansion of gambling the subject of a public referendum to access the opinions of the residents of Florida.
The Senate Gaming Committee plan is to have the draft finalised by next week.


NO MORE SLINGO FOR ZYNGA
2013-08-16

A new decision by social gaming giant Zynga had the industry chattering Tuesday as news broke that the company is shuttering its branded version of the popular slot-bingo online game developed by Slingo after around eighteen months of operation under a Slingo licence.
With immediate effect Zynga Slingo has stopped signing on new players, and the company plans to withdraw its version of the game from Facebook towards the end of August, probably re-deploying its legions of fans (estimated conservatively at well over 3 million) to other entertainment sites like Zynga Poker.
Slingo was acquired by RealNetworks last months (see previous InfoPowa report), which may have something to do with the decision to pull the Zynga game.

NEW JERSEY REVIVES WIDER ONLINE GAMBLING BILL
2012-12-05

In a surprise move Tuesday, the New Jersey House of Assembly approved the progress of an online gambling bill that includes amendments widening the scope beyond intrastate internet poker.
Bill A2578 was sponsored by State Sen. Ray Lesniak, who predicted that the revived bill (previously rejected by state governor Chris Christie in 2011) would be carried by a vote by the full Assembly on December 17, followed by a successful state Senate vote on December 20.
North Jersey,com reports that a successful vote would allow any internet version of casino games, and is not restricted to online poker.
Its still not too late for Atlantic City to become the Silicon Valley of Internet Gaming, Lesniak told supporters Tuesday.
The bill has faced various obstacles which have militated against its adoption by the planned target date of March 2012; it was stalled when Senate and Assembly passed slightly different versions, and due to legislative recesses has only recently regained momentum, driven inexorably by Sen. Lesniak.
If the now harmonised bill passes both the full House of Assembly and the State Senate, Gov. Christie will again be faced with the dilemma of signing the bill into law, although this year there is a stronger drive by states to seek intrastate solutions to online gambling rather than have federal laws imposed on them (see previous InfoPowa reports).
Recent academic opinions have also provided possible solutions to the governor's claimed reservations on state constitutional grounds.
Under the bill, online gambling servers would be located on the premises of licensed land casinos in Atlantic City, offering intrastate online gambling of all types to state residents.
The state of Delaware is the only other to have passed laws allowing intrastate online gambling in the wider sense, whilst Nevada has legislation that permits online poker only on an intrastate basis.
