US becomes a world gaming capital

Some observers believe that the U.S. is poised to become the world’s newest online gambling capital. This follows decades in which online betting was made difficult for the Grande Vegas Casino and other online venues based on the 1961 Federal Wire Act. When the U.S. Firth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that the Wire Act only referred to sports betting the ban continued, based on the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act (UIGEA).

Safe and Secure Online Casino Gambling

The Grande Vegas online casino and other casino venues throughout the world spend a huge percentage of their profits securing their casino from theft. The famed casino break-in movie Ocean 11 notwithstanding, very few of these thefts take place as a result of outright burglaries or blatant robbery. Instead, the thieves tend to take advantage of human foibles and cracks in the gaming process to maximize their advantage. 

Online Casino Gaming Licenses

When you signed into your online casino to play games, what did you check? The games lobby? The bonuses? The mobile app? Those are the types of amenities that most casino players look for before they open an account. 

Casino advisors caution players to check one more thing – the casino’s license. The license that a casino holds indicates how experts rate the venue. Obtaining an online casino license requires that the casino prove that it’s a safe and secure online gaming site, that the games and payouts are monitored and that there’s an outside official body that supervises its random number generator and any player / casino disputes.

MGM Partners with MLB

Following a data-sharing agreement signing with the National Hockey League last month, the MGM Vegas caino operator has signed a similar deal with Major League Baseball. The new partners announced the deal last week. The agreement will cement MGM’s place as of Official Entertainment Partner of the Baseball League and will allow MGM to promote the MGM brand, beyond their flagship Vegas Casino, via MBL’s broadcast and digital platforms.

No End to the Wynn Resorts' Troubles

Wynn Resorts can’t seem to stay out of the headlines. Far from settling down after last year’s sexual misconduct charge against founder and CEO Steve Wynn and subsequent court fight for controlling shares and leverage on the board, the Vegas casino company seems to be garnering more headlines than ever. New sports betting and online casino pursuits, focus on resort entertainment options and Mr. Wynn’s reappearance in the public eye all turn attention to Wynn Resorts.

Find the Money in Fantasy Sports

Fantasy sports has become a multi-billion dollar business in just a few years and the momentum shows no sign of abating. In fact, thanks to new sports betting legislation and the online casino, the industry is growing rapidly. Millions of sports fans are hooked on the pastime – over 20 million, at last count, participate in the games at least once a week.

Why are heavy investors, including Fox Sports, the NFL, Shamrock Capital and NBC sports, investing heavily in the fantasy sports industry?

What are Fantasy Sports

Playing fantasy sports is easy. You submit your entry fee, select the lineup under a capped fantasy budget and collect your payouts based on the results. You keep doing this over and over again, making changes to your line-up and connecting your own fantasy team to the successes and failures of the real sporting events. 

Gaming Developers in the News

When all is said and done, at the Grande Vegas online casino and other casinos are only as good as the gaming developer that supplies it with games. All land-based and online casino sites offer basic table, card and slot machine game adventures. Some designers make the casino experience bigger and better with more interactive, more dynamic and more realistic games.

 Florida Gambling Bill Goes to the Voter

Florida’s Amendment 3, which grants Florida voters the exclusive right to decide if and when to authorize the expansion of land based casinos and online casino gambling in Florida, passed with a 70% YES vote. However, the ballot question is undergoing examination as operators try to figure out ways to get around the new stumbling block.

The main question seems to be whether the Amendment applies to sports betting.  Thus far, voters seemed to be most focused on how the amendment could impact the development of new casino centers in the state. But now, legal experts are also examining how the Amendment might affect sport betting legalization in Florida. Their tentative conclusion is that the Amendment might not make it more difficult to pass sports betting legislation.

Wynn Resorts in the News...Again!

Wynn Resorts can’t seem to stay out of the headlines. Far from settling down after last year’s sexual misconduct charge against founder and former CEO Steve Wynn and subsequent court fight for controlling shares and leverage on the board, the casino company seems to be garnering more headlines than ever. New sports betting pursuits and options such as those offered by the Grande Vegas casino for online players give observers a clear picture of the direction in which the company is moving. 

DraftKings or FanDuel – What’s the Difference?

Fantasy Sports – and daily fantasy sports – is one of the biggest phenomena of the 21st century. Fantasy sports – when you join a league, build a fantasy team and compete in fantasy competitions – was conceived in the late ‘60s and enjoyed a small measure of popularity through the final decades of the 20th century. Interest exploded in the early years of the 21st century when online Vegas casino players discovered that, while playing fantasy sports, they could make sports bets which were otherwise illegal in the United States. Two companies, FanDuel and DraftKings, emerged as the fantasy sports kingpins. These sites facilitate participants’ interactive engagement, bets and payouts and other fantasy sports gaming pursuits.

If you’re a beginner, you probably want to check out these two companies before you start playing. As you aim for the top results you won’t want to make your choice until you’re clear about the differences in rosters, salary caps, spreads and rules.
