Get Jurassic with Dinosaur Bonuses at Slots Capital

Witty casino blogger at Slots Capital, better known as Slots Lotty, has published an article about the venue’s most recent promotional spree - Dinosaur Species and Jurassic Casino Bonuses. If you are a movie fan and good at simple math, it might be quite interesting to take a look at what she has to offer – after all, being caught up in the excitement surrounding movie blockbusters such as Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom can only launch tantamount casino offers or maybe even THREE of them!

By claiming to have seen a dinosaur grazing in the swamp, naively calling it Thinkhesaurus, Lotty, funny as always, actively strives to her humorous side and confirms to have gazed another one sleeping all day. She named him a Dinosnore, but the real dilemma arose when she tried to name the third prehistoric creature and simply decided to borrow a well-known word, Thesaurus. Clever, isn’t it? If that didn’t crack you up, here’s a new joke she came up with: “Why ­did the dinosaur cross the road? - because chickens weren’t invented yet!”

Okay, I think we had enough of Lotty’s humor in one article and it’s time to announce three casino bonuses that are available until the end of the current month. Play from June 22nd to June 30th at Slots Capital and get a 150% bonus with coupon code, JURASSIC150 or increase the odds by collecting a 250% bonus, whose coupon code comes with a slightly different digit, JURASSIC250. Of course, if that doesn’t rock your boat, maybe a 300% bonus will. For each of the bonuses, there is a maximum deposit of $500 with no maximum cashout, but you ought to pay attention to wagering requirements nevertheless.

Down at the venue, a wide selection of quality slots and table games from Rival is all it takes for you to fly, so if you own a desktop or a laptop, push the download button and enjoy the weekend. ROAR!!!!

Farhintaj Bonyadi Wins 2018 WSOP $1,000 Super Seniors for First Gold Bracelet

Casino News Daily
Farhintaj Bonyadi Wins 2018 WSOP $1,000 Super Seniors for First Gold Bracelet

Farhintaj Bonyadi, mother of three-time WSOP gold bracelet winner Farzad Bonyadi, outlasted a behemoth field of 2,191 to win the 2018 WSOP $1,000 Super Seniors No-Limit Hold’em for a gold piece of her own. The player also scooped a hefty payout of $311,451 for her efforts.

It is also interesting to note that Bonyadi actually became the first female winner of this year’s edition of the popular poker series.

The player survived through a massive field and a prolonged heads-up against Robert Beach to win her first title from the WSOP. Shortly after her victory, she said that she felt really great to have a bracelet of her own. Her son, Farzad, was on the rail to support and guide his mother. The mother and son duo told WSOP staff shortly after her victory that it was actually Farzad who taught his mother how to play poker. However, the three-time gold bracelet winner admitted that although he tried to help throughout the tournament, Bonyadi pretty much sealed the victory herself.

The tournament was expected to take place over three days but was extended into a fourth one during which Bonyadi and her heads-up opponent battled it out for the better part of three hours.

Day 3 kicked off with 43 players, but that field was eventually reduced to Bonyadi and Beach. The two players played the final level scheduled for the day and agreed to return for an additional fourth day of play.

Final Day Action

It is important to note that Bonyadi was going really strong throughout Day 3. Yet, she entered the two-handed duel at a considerable chip disadvantage, but apparently, that did not discourage her from pursuing the title. She remained calm and composed, just as her son had taught her.

Day 4 saw Bonyadi drop to 1.85 million at some point to Beach’s 9.105 million. However, her patience paid well as the player managed to double, even the stacks, and take the lead. She never looked back from that point on. After an epic marathon of chips going back and forth for 175 hands, Bonyadi eventually eliminated her final opponent.

The final hand in play saw Bonyadi raise to 425,000 pre-flop and Beach call. The [6d][4d][7c] landed on the flop. Bonyadi checked and Beach bet 600,000. Bonyadi check-raised to 1.2 million, which her opponent called. The [3s] arrived on the turn to see Bonyadi bet 600,000 and Beach call. The [5h] rolled out on the river. Bonyadi moved all in with [8s][8d] and Beach called with [9s][7s]. The latter hit the rail for $192,397, as WSOP’s brand new champion raised her hands in the air in celebration.

As mentioned above, the Super Seniors tournament attracted 2,191 entries who created a prize pool of $1,971,900. The top 329 places paid with cashes starting from $1,500.

Player Nabs $206K on Book of Aztec at BitStarz

Latest Casino Bonuses
Player Nabs $206K on Book of Aztec at BitStarz
Player Nabs $206K on Book of Aztec at BitStarz

An experienced player who has transcended the limits of two-dimensional betting in regular currencies, has managed to shake the increasingly popular online venue BitStarz from its pants on June 10th, after hitting a monster win on Book of Aztec. The punter from Venezuela now owns a bank account with an additional $206,551 in Bitcoin but there’s more! This lucky Chamo, which is local for "bro" or "dude", has already milked the very same casino, and walked away with $480,702.

Let’s face it, things haven’t been easy for Venezuelans lately, since the country is in the midst of economic and political crisis, especially after the death of its former president, Hugo Chavez. The entire quandary is additionally burdened with severe food and medicine shortages, as well as soaring crime rates, making it extremely difficult to cling onto something. But enough about politics, as someone once said, and let’s talk some Bitcoins – or 27.5 of them to be precise.

The supplier behind Book of Aztec is Amatic Industries, which is already known throughout the entire industry mostly for producing slots with regular jackpots. According to the casino’s marketing manager, this is the exact reason why the venue made it part of its impeccable gaming collection, now counting over 1,300 titles! All players like winning big bucks, and delivering riches has become quite often at BitStarz, added the manager. In the last couple of months, players have rocked the reels of Football Superstar, Diamond Vapor, Wolf Gold and other, earning almost $500,000!

BitStarz congratulated the winner on a small fortune and invited all broad-minded gamesters to join the winning streak; additional $500 (or 5 BTC) welcome package including 20 no deposit free spins should boost their account by large and launch them on a gaming adventure of mega proportions. Good luck, punters…

Stockholm’s Stock Exchange Home to the Largest Number of European Online Gambling Companies

Casino News Daily
Stockholm’s Stock Exchange Home to the Largest Number of European Online Gambling Companies

Stockholm has become a favorite stock exchange among Europe’s online gambling companies, with 19 such companies now being listed on it, following a wave of IPOs since the beginning of 2017, Bloomberg reports.

News about Sweden’s capital having the largest number of online gaming and betting companies in Europe come at a time when the country is gearing up for re-regulation and liberalization of its own online gambling market.

LeoVegas, Aspire Global AB, Cherry, Kindred Group, and Betsson are several of the companies to have opted either for Nasdaq Nordic, known to be the main Stockholm board, or the First North market over the past several years.

Danish developer of online gaming products Better Collective was the latest company to float on the Stockholm stock exchange. It started trading its shares on the main Nasdaq Stockholm market on June 8.

As mentioned above, the Swedish capital currently has 19 listed companies operating in the European online gambling industry, beating out the London Stock Exchange which is currently home to 16 gambling companies.

As many as seven iGaming companies have listed on the Nasdaq Nordic or First North markets since the beginning of 2017, with those being Global Gaming, Scout Gaming, Evolution Gaming, Better Collective, Cherry, Aspire Global, and LeoVegas, Bloomberg notes. Some of these have listed through initial public offering, others have moved from other platforms.

The business news outlet further points out that the companies’ performance has varied after their listing. Aspire Gaming has thus reached a 35% increase in its post-listing fortune, while LeoVegas has slumped 30%.

In terms of market value, London still accounts for the largest portion of European online gaming and betting companies’ collective value. However, it is important to note that Stockholm and London together currently account for 78% of the total market value of gambling companies across the continent, with Greece, France, and Spain comprising top 5.

According to Nasdaq Head of European Listings Adam Kostyal, Stockholm has become an attractive stock exchange due to its well-developed community of experts and investors as well as local entrepreneurs’ reputation of early adopters of technology and innovation. The expert further told Bloomberg that he expects more listings by both local and international gaming and betting companies to take place in near future.

Online Gambling Market Re-regulation Progress

Sweden has entered the final stages of re-regulating and liberalizing its gambling market after the country’s main legislative body, the Riksdag, approved earlier this month what would take effect as a new gambling law on January 1, 2019.

Under the new law, international gambling companies will be able to apply for and obtain a license from the local regulator, Lotteriinspektionen, and to operate online gaming and betting services in a regulated environment. Lotteriinspektionen is set to begin accepting license applications from August 1, 2018.

Sweden’s new gaming act aims to replace the country’s Lottery Act of 1994 and the Casino Act of 1999 and will scrap Svenska Spel’s monopoly over the provision of the majority of legal gambling services in the country.

Captain Kirk Goes Bitcoin Mining

Captain Kirk Goes Bitcoin Mining
Captain Kirk Goes Bitcoin Mining

Bitcoin – the final frontier. Apparently, not even aging TV stars are immune to the lure of digital currencies as seen via the example of William Shatner, whose stardom rose to prominence decades ago in the hit TV sci-fi series, Star Trek, in which he played the admirable and unshakable James T. Kirk, captain of the starship Enterprise.

Shatner, 87, who's known to transcend the boundaries (his kiss with Uhura in the 1968 episode of the series is incorrectly cited as the first interracial kiss portrayed on US television) is apparently spending his senior days – mining Bitcoin! That's what he admitted to Solar Alliance startup after proclaiming him their celebrity spokesperson. Shatner then went on to say that this is not even his first foray into the cryptocurrency world, although he admits he is not 100% sure what he's doing most of the time.

In an interview with Chicago Tribune, Shatner said: “The concept is so, I guess the word is bizarre. You have to blank your mind and say, ‘What is blockchain, again? How does mining operate, again?’ The concepts are really strange, and yet when you begin to grasp it, it makes sense.” For him, it all began in 2014 when he was sent some Bitcoin tokens by a fan, only for the actor to Tweet soon after: “What the heck is a bit coin?”

Solar Alliance is battling a barrage of criticism coming from the environmentalist groups who are adamant that Bitcoin mining wastes resources. This is why Solar Alliance is ready to take on a feat of spreading out on 14 acres of land in the Midwest, install solar panels there and harvest the sun's energy to generate the power Bitcoin miners need to do their stuff.

Murphysboro, the Illinois town of 10,000 inhabitants, has already offered 165,000 of square feet in a vacant factory to the company to be converted for mining operations. Its Mayor Stephens said that the town is “like a lot of Middle America, have seen job losses because of a change in the worldwide economy. From my perspective, we’re going to have someone who will occupy a previously derelict property, and whatever development comes out of it will just make it more marketable if the project is not successful.” Miners can rent the space there and get some free coaching and advice from the company members.

Shatner was approached by Solar Alliance when they outfitted his own home by coincidence, saying he'd help them run the facility when it's operational. “I’m in Chicago a lot, and I live in Kentucky part of the time. I might very well do that. It’s an interesting idea to see it at work because … it’s so esoteric that it’s difficult to understand.”

Gal Yifrach Wins First Gold Bracelet in 2018 WSOP $3,000 No-Limit Hold’em 6-Handed

Casino News Daily
Gal Yifrach Wins First Gold Bracelet in 2018 WSOP $3,000 No-Limit Hold’em 6-Handed

Gal Yifrach, a Los Angeles-based entrepreneur and recreational poker player, claimed last night his first WSOP gold bracelet for taking down Event #28: $3,000 No-Limit Hold’em 6-Handed of this year’s edition of the popular series. Aside from the gold piece, Yifrach also collected his largest-ever poker payout of $461,798 for topping the tournament’s 868-strong field.

His triumph in the WSOP came a little over a year after the player captured a gold piece from the WSOP Circuit. Back at The Bicycle, Yifrach entered a WSOP Circuit $3,250 High Roller to win it and collect his first gold ring from the series.

Speaking to WSOP staff last night, Yifrach said that he usually does not play much of a tournament poker and that tables where higher-stakes cash games are played are where he could be seen more often. He also pointed out that he does not play professionally. With a gold ring and now a gold bracelet, he has clearly been doing very well for a non-professional.

The player said he was quite comfortable with the $3,000 No-Limit Hold’em 6-Max’s structure as it allowed for a lot of hands to be played, something that is typical for cash games.

The tournament was scheduled as a three-day one, but it took eventually a fourth additional day for it to be sealed. On Day 3, Yifrach took the lead during four-handed play and was really hoping that he would be able to end the tournament on that day and as the winner.

He pointed out that he felt he played very well and had really nice hands coming his way, which further helped him lock the title. However, despite his own efforts to finish the job on Day 3, action had to be extended with three players left in contention.

Final Day of Action

Yifrach came into Day 4 as the chip leader and with massive advantage over his two remaining opponents – James Mackey and Gary Hasson. The three players battled it out for nearly 50 hands before a player got busted.

Hasson was that unfortunate one after clashing against the eventual winner. Action sped up quite a bit after Hasson’s elimination. The two-handed duel between Yifrach and Mackey kicked off with the former holding nearly two times more chips than his final opponent.

However, over the course of just seven hands, Mackey managed to even the stacks and put Yifrach into big danger. On the final hand of the tournament, the two players went all in, Mackey tabling pocket tens to Yifrach’s [As][8h]. A [8d][6h][2c][2s][8c] board secured Yifrach with a full house and the tournament title. A second gold bracelet thus eluded Mackey. The player took home a consolation prize of $285,377 for running deep into the event.

As mentioned above, the $3,000 buy-in six-max tournament drew a field of 868 entries who generated a prize pool of $2,343,600. The money was split into payouts for the top 131 finishers.

Iron Dog Releases Si Xiang Slot
Iron Dog Releases Si Xiang Slot

In the last 6 months or more, there has been a flood of games whose subject matter revolves around the ancient Chinese culture, with one of the more recent releases being Play’n Go’s Fu Er Dai slot. We happen to love the trend, as we feel that Chinese culture is so vast and beautiful that it certainly deserves all kinds of exposure. Also, its market is enormous, so there's some healthy commercial reasoning behind it, as well.

This time around, however, it's Iron Dog Studio, a 1x2 Gaming subsidiary, that went full Far East and released a game of exotic beauty and charm with Chinese mythology in mind – Si Xiang. The game's official description reads: “In Chinese mythology the skies were divided by four mythological creatures that guarded the world and Iron Dog Studios Si Xiang’ unleashes these tremendous mythological beasts into a spectacular slot.”

This 5-reel game has all the visual cues inherent to Chinese architecture of old, particularly the sacred spots like temples and places of worship. The main game's backdrops are set in a thriving big city. Once the Extra Spins mode is triggered, that changes to a remote landscape with some cool-looking clouds in the shape of a dragon.

Its key features include the expanding symbols of The Azure Dragon, Vermillion Bird, White Tiger and Wild Tortoise. A special Yin Yang symbol that sits outside of the reels, to the left, will release multiple features at specific points during the game. When Yin Yang lands on a winning combo, it will give out multipliers and can even unleash some of the wild beasts.

The game is playable on smartphones and tablet devices just as well as on desktop computers.

Here is the neat game preview:

WinADay Adds Crypto & New Games For 10th Birthday

Doesn’t time fly when we’re enjoying ourselves? Who would think that WinADay Casino is already celebrating its 10th birthday next week? Anyway, it’s been an incredible year for the venue, as it not only launched five new games and cryptocurrency support, but also witnessed a site-wide progressive jackpot in a record-breaking $277,482 chunk. To mark the beginning of another successful decade in business, the innovative betting site is ready to release an entirely new addition called Vegas Vibes, accompanied by birthday deals and a Freebie up to $100, both available until June 28th.

After introducing cryptocurrencies last July, Bitcoin users became more than welcome to join the venue, and both deposit and withdrawal options are now available. Earlier in February, the casino added Litecoin, only to beef up the platform with BCH a month later, in March. The number of players who prefer betting in cryptocurrencies due to lower fees and faster processing times has been multiply increased, says the casino manager.

The platform is constantly evolving to answer the latest industry trends since players’ preferences change over time, added Michael Hilary, who has managed the venue since 2008. However, the operator’s dedication to customer service has remained unchanged, as it represents one of the key elements in running a successful gambling business.

Caesars’ Las Vegas Casino Resort Employees Approve New Contract

Casino News Daily
Caesars’ Las Vegas Casino Resort Employees Approve New Contract

Unionized workers at Caesars Entertainment Corp.’s Las Vegas Strip and downtown properties approved Thursday the terms of a new five-year contract, thus putting an end to months of negotiations that, in another case scenario, could have culminated in a citywide employees’ strike.

While no details have been released about the terms of the new contract, it has emerged that it includes wage increases and a special language that aims to protect staff members in case the property they work at is sold to another company. The contract also addresses sexual harassment in the wake of multiple misconduct at the workplace allegations against disgraced casino boss Steve Wynn.

Under the terms of the new agreement between workers and their employer, guest room attendants will be provided with wireless devices that will make it possible for them to inform security that they feel under threat in due time. Employees asked for improved security at their workplace after last October’s deadly shooting in which a lone gunman opened fire into a crowd of concert-goers from the 32nd floor of Mandalay Bay to kill 59 people and injure nearly 500 others.

The new contract also includes language that protects Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals beneficiaries as well as immigrants that live and work in the United States temporarily under a special protective status. That particular measure was negotiated after US President Donald Trump announced that he would seek to annul the Obama administration-promoted DACA immigration policy.

Reactions to the New Contract Terms

Unionized workers at Caesars’ properties negotiated the new agreement for months. The matter escalated into a citywide vote in May that authorized the local UNITE HERE Culinary and Bartenders Unions to call a citywide strike, if the negotiating parties failed to iron out their differences by the end of May. A tentative agreement was eventually reached, which prevented the city’s largest citywide strike in decades from taking place and causing disturbances and even closures of properties.

The negotiations covered 50,000 union members employed at Las Vegas’ casino resorts, including 12,000 workers at Caesars’ properties. All 12,000 are now covered by the new contract after yesterday’s approval. They are employed at the major company’s Strip properties, including the flagship Caesars Palace, Bally’s, Harrah’s, Paris, Flamingo, Planet Hollywood, The Linq, and The Cromwell, as well as the off-Strip Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino.

Union members have reached a similar agreement with MGM Resorts International, another major operator of casino resorts across Las Vegas.

Commenting on their new contract, workers said yesterday that by far it was the best one they had ever reached in the union’s history, particularly given the fact that it addresses safety concerns in the wake of last October’s tragedy and the sexual misconduct allegations against Mr. Wynn.

CrownBet Set to Become Sportingbet after Ownership Change and William Hill Australia Purchase

Casino News Daily
CrownBet Set to Become Sportingbet after Ownership Change and William Hill Australia Purchase

Australian betting operator CrownBet filed earlier this week a “Change of company name reservation” form with the nation’s Securities and Investments Commission to reserve the Sportingbet Pty Ltd name, local news outlet The Australian Financial Review reports.

The move comes shortly after speculations had emerged that the company had been planning to rebrand itself and had picked the Sportingbet name. Sportingbet, once a major Australian gambling operator, had actually been established by CrownBet’s current Chief Executive Matt Tripp and his family.

CrownBet was owned by Australian casino operator Crown Resorts up until recently. It became known in March that Canadian gambling giant The Stars Group would buy an 80% stake in the business. It was also announced at about the same time that CrownBet was selected as the preferred bidder for the acquisition of William Hill’s ailing Australian business.

The major British bookmaker announced in January that it was reviewing its local operations and that a sale was among the options considered regarding the future of William Hill Australia. The company entered the Australian betting market back in 2013 with the acquisition of the Sportingbet, Centrebet, and Tom Waterhouse brands for nearly £460 million. William Hill then scrapped the three brands for its global brand. However, the operator never managed to gain footing in the highly competitive Australian betting market.

New Betting Taxes and Expected Impact on Operators’ Profitability

CrownBet’s acquisition of William Hill Australia and The Stars Group’s acquisition of CrownBet will create Australia’s third largest online gambling operator. However, analysts believe that the upcoming implementation of a point of consumption tax in a number of Australian states and territories will have enormously negative consequences for the industry and its stakeholders.

New South Wales announced yesterday that it would introduce a 10% tax on betting revenue generated by operators from local customers. The regime will take effect on January 1, 2019. The announcement came just a few days after the government of Queensland rolled out a similar measure. A point of consumption tax will come into effect in that state on October 1, 2018, but operators will be taxed at 15% on their local revenues.

South Australia was the first state to introduce a point of consumption taxation system and the tax has already taken effect there. Victoria announced that it would tax companies on 8% of their revenues, while the Australian Capital Territory’s 15% point of consumption tax is slated to come into effect at the turn of the year.

According to research firm Macquarie Wealth Management, the new wave of taxes across the nation would cost betting operators nearly A$200 million, which would leave CrownBet, Ladbrokes, and bet365’s local businesses strapped for cash. Macquarie believes that CrownBet’s EBIT would fall from $57 million to A$1 million after the implementation of the new taxation regimes, while Ladbrokes and bet365 would generate EBIT loss of A$19 million and A$13 million, respectively.

Brian Rast Wins Doyle Brunson’s Last Poker Tournament for Fourth WSOP Bracelet

Casino News Daily
Brian Rast Wins Doyle Brunson’s Last Poker Tournament for Fourth WSOP Bracelet

Brian Rast, a mixed games and high roller specialist, scooped a few hours ago his career’s fourth WSOP gold bracelet after surviving through a field of 95 entries, including some of poker’s heavyweights. The player won the $10,000 No-Limit 2-7 Lowball Draw Championship for the gold piece and $259,670 in prize money.

While Rast’s accomplishment deserves quite some attention, it can be said that poker legend Doyle Brunson was the one to steal the show. The ten-time gold bracelet winner entered the event in the very last minute possible on Day 2 and announced that it would be his career’s last tournament. Everyone rooted for Brunson and hoped that he would end a career of great achievements in a spectacular manner and by adding an 11th gold piece from the series.

Brunson eventually busted in sixth place but certainly showed his younger colleagues one last time just how incredibly good he was at this game.

The final day of the event was played on Tuesday. It kicked off with 11 survivors, Rast and Brunson among them. The first three eliminations of the day occurred quite quickly, and it was actually Brunson’s son, Todd (himself a gold bracelet winner), to also fall in those early stages of Day 3 action. The remaining eight were relocated to a single table to play down to a champion.

As mentioned above, Brunson, to everyone’s disappointment, went out in sixth place to collect a final poker tournament payout of $43,963. From that point on, five-handed play lasted for an hour before a player left the field. It was Italy’s Dario Sammartino who busted Shawn Sheikhan in fifth place. That secured the Italian with a considerable chip lead. However, it seemed that Rast’s time had finally come as the player began to gain momentum and to accumulate chips.

Rast eliminated James Alexander in fourth place which gave him the chip lead. The eventual champion never relinquished his advantage from that point on.

Sammartino exited the tournament in third place after a clash against Rast. That made for the final heads-up match between the well-known poker pro and his final opponent, Mike Wattel, who himself boasted quite some experience on the felt and was vying for his third bracelet from the series.

The heads-up duel began with Rast holding a 4-1 chip lead. Despite the big disadvantage, Wattel put up a good fight for the better part of three hours before eventually surrendering to his opponent. The player was rewarded $160,489 for his runner-up finish.

Another Major Title for Rast

Rast does not identify himself as a tournament regular. However, he has quite a collection of tournament trophies for a non-regular. As mentioned above, Rast scooped his fourth WSOP gold bracelet by winning the $10,000 No-Limit 2-7 Lowball Draw Championship.

The player is also a two-time WSOP Poker Player’s Championship; he won his titles in 2011 and 2016. Back in 2011, Rast won another gold piece from the WSOP after besting the field of a $1,500 Pot-Limit Omaha Hold’em tournament. Winning the inaugural Aria Super High Roller Bowl for $7.5 million in prize money was another important milestone in Rast’s career.

Besides that, the player has been playing cash games for years now. He prefers high-stakes mixed formats to standard No-Limit Hold’em, which means that he regularly clashes against some of the world’s top grinders.

Asked about how it felt to win another gold piece and to be part of Doyle Brunson’s last tournament, Rast said that it always felt special to win a gold bracelet and that he was happy he captured another one. The player went on to say that he has been playing a lot against Brunson over the past several years and that he was full of appreciation for the poker legend.
