CONVENIENCE STORE ASSOCIATION WIDENS ATTACK ON INTERNET WAGERING (Update)
2014-06-11

The National Association of Convenience Tom Brady betting odds to win Poker Madden Betting Pandemonia Store Owners, which earlier this week wrote to its members urging them to support the Adelson-inspired Graham-Chaffetz legislative attempts to resurrect and strengthen the Wire Act (see previous InfoPowa reports) has widened its opposition by backing a full public affairs campaign to persuade lawmakers in the US Congress to adopt the measure.
The Association's vp for government relations, Lyle Beckwith, told the publication Politico Tuesday that his members are worried about lottery tickets being sold across state lines over the Internet.
As a member of the convenience store industry I'm most concerned with the impact that the Department of Justice decision has had on the sale of lottery products," Beckwith said.
"Lottery tickets should not be sold interstate on the Internet. Those sales risk letting kids buy them, letting people gamble in states that dont want gambling, and pulling money and sales out of some states into others.
"If Congress does not act to pass this [Graham-Chaffetz] legislation, states will open the floodgates to Internet gambling and it will become difficult or impossible to turn it back.


VIRTUAL HORSE RACING IN SENEGAL
2014-02-26

The Senegal National Lottery (LONASE), online gambling software developer Senejeux and the French gambling group PMU's Senegal retail betting operation have collaborated to povide punters in the former French colony with virtual horse racing services.
The venture has delivered a new fixed-odds, 3D virtual horseracing game to 35 PMU betting outlets, offering a high-frequency, RNG virtual horseracing system that presents races every five minutes and around the clock if required.
The system includes 43-inch plasma television screens, along with touch-screen electronic point-of-sale terminals equipped with printers and bar code scanners.
Punter reaction and take-up on the new product is said to be positive and encouraging.
Senejeux operational director Balla Gadiaga says: We feel that virtual horseracing is the perfect complimentary game to go along with the existing live horse PMU activities, and now that we are live it is evident that additional revenues are being achieved, especially during those hours when live horse racing from France is not available.
The national lottery in Senegal recently engaged Senejeux to provide and manage a wide range of virtual sports games including football through both mobile and online channels.


FIVE-WAY CHOP AND BIG BLINDS BRINGS AUSSIE MILLIONS CHALLENGE TO A SPEEDY END
2014-02-04

The $25,000 buy-in Aussie Millions Challenge event Downunder came to a fast if unspectacular end Monday as the five remaining professional players made a deal and then boosted the blinds to end the match quickly.
Max Altergott was the titular winner, having started the final table low on the chip stacks...and the five-way chop meant that he was actually the lowest paid of the last five players standing at $241,785.
The final table started out as Altergott, Dan Smith, Jason Mercier, Martin Jacobson, Scott Seiver, Dan Shak, Marvin Rettenmaier and Tobias Renkemeier - all respected names illustrating the quality of the opposition.
By the time the action had reached five-handed stage, Altergott, Dan Smith, Jason Mercier, Martin Jacobson and Scott Seiver decided to agree a five-way chop that left nothing on the table, but gave each around $240,000.
With no incentive for the ultimate winner, that left only the problem of finishing as fast as possible, a task accomplished by increasing the blinds every orbit up to an eventual 100,000/200,000/40,000, ending the game in just over 10 minutes.
Payments to the last five were:
Martin Jacobson $285,921
Dan Smith $278,414
Scott Seiver $265,538
Jason Mercier $263,342
Max Altergott $241,785
Other final tablers took home the following:
6th: Dan Shak - $100,000
7th: Marvin Rettenmaier - $70,000
8th: Tobias Renkemeier - $55,000
