QQWIN99 Player of the Year

 

Below I have compared the current Player of the Year rankings from Bluff and CardPlayer Magazines. I have a couple of observations:

-David Pham & Bill Edler seem to be the top players so far this year;

-J.C. Tran, Robert Mizrachi & Ted Lawson seem to be top ten players;

-CardPlayer gives a lot of weight to the WSOP (Schneider, Hamby, Clements)

-Will CardPlayer change its rating system for the new CardPlayer Europe Magazine?

-For that matter do either of these publications know there is QQWIN99 outside of the United States?

Gambling Declines in UK

The Gambling Prevalence Study, released in the United Kingdom, has shown a decline in the total number of adults that have participated in some form of gambling within the last twelve months.

Numbers in the report show that 68% of the population, or about 32 million adults, had participated in some form of gambling activity within the past year. This compares to 72% of the UK population 8 years ago.

Only 3% had gambled via the internet on activities such as online poker and casino games, while 4% placed bets with an internet bookmaker.

The UK gambler is mostly likely to be of white ethnicity from a higher income household. In general, gambling was looked upon as more harmful than beneficial but prohibition was rejected over the individual’s right to choose their own lifestyle.

Empty House at Scottish toto sgp Halls

Five Scots bingo halls shut as smoking ban drives players out

 

It has emerged that Scottish toto sgp clubs are being forced out of business by the recent smoking ban.

 

As a result of the ban 3 months ago reports show a decrease of up to 27 percent in revenue, with five clubs now having to close their doors.

 

The Bingo Association backed the ban but now industry chiefs are warning more will close and say they want tax breaks to help them keep going.

 

Scotland ‘s biggest independent bingo operator has shut down two halls, in Edinburgh and Dunfermline. The Dunfermline hall, in Fife Leisure Park, only opened a year ago.

 

The Inverness firm, who employ more than 500 people in Scotland, say revenues have plummeted as customers use time between games to go outside for a smoke instead of spending cash in the halls.

 

Managing director Peter Perrins said: “Players arrive late, depart earlier and take any opportunity to exit the building in pursuit of their nicotine fix.

 

“Tabletop bingo and gaming machines form a significant part of the business and these have begun hemorrhaging money.”

 

Another operator has now closed their bingo halls in Stirlingshire, Fife and Lanark.

 

Operations manager Mike Lowe said: “Within four weeks of the ban being introduced, it was apparent business would be devastated and extreme measures would need to be taken.

 

“I have recorded as many as 47 per cent of players …

Central banks cannot allow cryptocurrencies to develop – says the head of BIS

 

According to Agustin Carstens, head of the Bank for International Settlements (BIS), central banks cannot give up their role as guardians of the global financial system in favor of private cryptocurrencies.

In a speech at Princeton University, Carstens argued that private cryptocurrencies should not replace central banks. According to Bloomberg, the head of BIS compared digital currency projects to “shiny skyscrapers,” while calling central banks “trust providers for global financial infrastructure.”

While commentators such as Carstens stick to the narrative that is based on the supremacy of central banks – a system that allows 1.7 billion adults to remain out of the banking system, Bitcoin continues to get more financial adoption. The main cryptocurrency currently processes transactions worth USD 1 to 3 billion per day.

AntiCrypto

The head of BIS, like many other experts from the banking market, is not a fan of cryptocurrencies. At the beginning of his term, he also called on regulatory authorities to introduce stricter rules regarding the digital currency market.

He has now stated that central banks need digital bitcoin dice. Maybe he is changing his belief about cryptocurrencies or just admitting his ignorance. After all, Facebook Libra can see the light of day in 2020 and the emission of the digital yuan may also pose a threat to the USA.

The head of BIS only notes:

“We have a responsibility to be at the cutting edge of the debate. There is really no choice but to do so, as otherwise, events will …

CAN ADVERTISERS BE PROSECUTED?

 

 

It would appear so in Taiwan…

 

Taiwan’s Central News Agency reports this week that a local advertising company promoting British Internet sport betting company Sportingbet has been raided and charged with gambling by police, shortly after the bookmaker’s founder spoke about his company on the island. Taichung-based Shijiwei Advertising was searched by detectives from the Criminal Investigation Bureau, who seized computer equipment, accounting books and an alleged list of gamblers who had opened accounts with Shijiwei. Police said the search yielded evidence indicating that the company is Sportingbet’s partner in Taiwan and has attracted hundreds of millions of new Taiwan dollar wagers from local gamblers for Sportingbet.

 

The company provoked the authorities’ attention when it invited Sportingbet’s founder Mark Blandford to visit Taiwan to promote sport gambling on the Internet.

Not a transparent company it would appear

 

Another of those small but intriguing mysteries surfaced on the message boards this week when a poster coyly using the unprofiled “handle” of VC Mediator made an appearance, offering to assist the growing number of players who are experienced problems at Prism Casino.com and its close relative Virtual Casino.com.

 

With a weary cynicism born of many Slot Gacor encounters with tricky casino operators in an unregulated industry, experienced players asked VC Mediator to identify himself, his “independent” company and his industry experience. His use of a Virtual Casino email address immediately raised concerns of bias.

 

That’s when a remarkable reticence set …
