Ben Afflek, a movie star famous for his roles in Daredevil and Good Will Hunting, a star currently filming as Batman in the new Batman Vs Superman film recently admitted to counting card in Blackjack during a recent interview. This didn’t come as a surprise to many as recently Ben was playing the tables at the “Hard Rock Hotel & Casino” in Las Vegas when he was caught counting cards, this resulted in Mr. Afflek being banned for life by several different casinos in Las Vegas.
This doesn’t mean that Mr. Afflek won’t be allowed to gamble at a land based casino ever again. He has already been seen playing at a number of different casinos in Atlantic City while filming for the new Batman Vs Superman film. These casinos are allowing for him to play for a number of different reasons. Mr. Afflek places big wagers and doesn’t always win, he brings more people to the casino and he works well with fans. He is all around good for business which these Las Vegas casinos fail to neglect. Even if they might lose a bit of money to Mr. Afflek, they’ll earn more through the free publicity he brings to the casino.
Mr. Afflek openly said during that interview that he feels it is unfair that these Las Vegas Casinos ban players who are good at Blackjack. It’s a game that requires skill and once players become good at the game their no longer allowed to play it at that casino.
A grand jury in Austin, Texas has indicated that Rick Perry, a governor for Texas is now being investigated for public corruption. The reason for this is because Governor Perry is opposed to legalizing online gambling and he has threaten to veto gambling funding for the state if he absolutely must have to. No governor in the United States of America has made this kind of threat before, people have believed that Mr. Perry is paid handsomely to keep his stance of not legalizing online gambling.
The state of Texas has now appointed a unique prosecutor who has more than enough talent to handle this investigation and anyone who tries to bribe him from prosecuting the Governor. Michael McCrum is the special prosecutor and will begin finding evidence to support his claims immediately.
Texans for Public Justice, an action group that sets out to have the rights of the public be heard were the ones who made a series of complaints against the governor. The spokesman for the Texans of Public Justice, Craig McDonald spoke to reporters saying, “We’re pleased that the grand jury determined that the governor’s bullying crossed the line into illegal behavior. The complaint had merit; serious laws were potentially broken.”
If Governor Rick Perry is fined to be guilty he will be sent to jail and face serious jail time for abusing his powers. This will result in one less government official trying to fight against online gambling legalization. This could end up being a big step towards the future of legalized online gambling in the United States of America.
What would it be like to win a massive amount of money? to know that you now can purchase the brand new car you’ve wanted or that you can buy a new home or take a vacation to a variety of tropical destinations such as Fiji. Playing the lottery or gambling at a land based casino won’t answer that question for you but gambling online could very well answer each one of those questions. This weekend that just passed answered those questions for one fortunate punter who was able to trigger a jackpot worth $146,278.

mFortune, a popular provider of table based casino games for the online gambling industry conducted a study earlier on this month. This study was designed to show the percentage of how many Blackjack players prefer online gambling or prefer mobile gambling. It came to a shock to mFortune and the online gambling industry that mobile blackjack gambling is more popular than online blackjack gambling. mFortune interviewed a total of five thousand gamblers from around the world to get their findings on the study.
James Goode, the former CEO of mFortune and now Independent Consultant for the well know mobile developed stated the following, “Throughout the years mobile gambling has been able to become considerably more popular than online gambling, I believe that the reason for this is because mobile gambling is that much more convenient compared to online gambling. During our study we were expecting to have the blackjack players we interviewed say that they prefer online gambling as Blackjack is still beloved by millions of people on the internet. We were blown away by the results and with this study now being finished you can be ensured that we will be releasing more Blackjack games to our loyal fans.”
The Independent Consultant was one of the main members in the party who interviewed these five thousand online gamblers and with his knowledge he will be able to consult mFortune on how to create better online blackjack gambling experiences. This is no easy task but Mr. Goode has already stated that he’s up for the task.
FedEx is the one of the first companies in the world to offer overnight delivery services. The company was the first of its kind and it quickly became one of the richest and most known companies in the world. Each year the company ships in excess of 1.2 Billion Packages. During its early days the company struggled financially but then went they into a period where the success came and placed them in a strong positon going forward.
Luckily for FedEx they were saved and not in the normal way you would suspect. Instead of being bailed out by the government, FedEx saw their own CEO Frederick W. Smith hit the Las Vegas Strip twenty years ago and win an incredible amount of money. The money he won was put into an investors’ interest banking account and throughout the years the interest in the account grew. That amount grew to such an amount that Mr. Smith was able to bail out his company.
Frederick W. Smith is the first CEO in Northern America to do such a thing versus being like so many large employers who often turn to local and federal governments to help save them from financial disaster or from potential layoffs. Mr. Smith couldn’t be reached for comment as this information was not commonly known nor does he wish to discuss the matter further. It is safe to say though that this is one of those interesting tidbits of information in a company’s history that many will look upon down the road. It is suspected not many others will follow that path either.

Ubisoft, one of the largest video game developers and an industry leader announced that they won’t be abandoning the last generation of consoles. That means that players can expect to see more Ubisoft developed games on the Playstation 3 and Xbox 360. Fans of Ubisoft developed games have approved of this announcement as the majority of them own one of the two consoles from the last generation. The new consoles cost a large amount of money and the majority of games currently can’t afford to purchase the Playstation 4 or Xbox One.
Ubisoft released a statement on their twitter account saying, “We have been receiving criticism from fans saying that we won’t continue to make games for the Playstation 3 or Xbox 360 after this year. We would like to ensure those players that we have plans to create new games for both consoles of the last generation for the next five years. Afterwards we will solely focus our efforts on the Xbox One and Playstation 4. We would never abandon the majority of our fans.”
Currently, Ubisoft has plans to release a new Assassins Creed for the Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 this year. Watch Dogs is also a new game being developed by Ubisoft that is also being released on both of the last generation consoles. Five years is a long time for a studio as large as Ubisoft to create games, players can expect at least eight more games from Ubisoft for the Playstation 3 and Xbox 360.
Microsoft, the creators behind all three Xbox’s announced today that Halo 1, 2, 3 and 4 are now being re-mastered for the Xbox One. This doesn’t surprise anyone as Halo 5 was just announced, releasing the three previous games in the series would allow for people who haven’t experience Halo to catch up on what’s going on without having to purchase any of the old game or consoles.
The Xbox One isn’t being advertised as a video game console but instead as a home entertainment console. People who have never purchased a console in their life are now purchasing the Xbox One due to the mass amount of things that the system can do. Those people are more than likely going to purchase a video game for the first time and Microsoft wants those video games to be the re-mastered Halo games and Halo 5. The reason for this is because Halo is Microsoft’s most popular franchise, making it more popular is only a good thing for Microsoft.
The re-mastered Halo 1, 2, 3 and 4 Games are being called “The Master Chief Halo Collection”. There is no word as to when the game will be released, we suspect that will gain more insight as to the future of these re-mastered Halo games at E3 2014. Microsoft has yet to make any comments regarding the game, instead only announcing the release of this game after a series of rumors arose at IGN regarding four re-mastered Halo Games.
Phil Ivey, a US Professional Poker Player is now being sued by Atlantic City based Borgata Casino. Borgata claimed that Phil Ivey alongside an associate cheated while playing Baccarat Row, winning a total of $9.6 Million from the online casino.
Mr. Ivey and his associate found a defect within the deck of cards. This in return allowed for them to arrange their hands in a certain way in order to win money. While they were gambling, Ivey and his accomplice were wagering $25,000 to $100,000 with each hand they made. This in return allowed for them to win large sums of money from Borgata.
Borgata stated that using this defect in the software to their advantage is a direct violation of the Online Gambling Regulations set by New Jersey. They said that this should make any winnings invalid instantaneously.
Kansas City took it upon themselves to collect all of the defective cards used in the same. A Judge than noted that Borgata’s responsibility is to offer realistic software and that by having this defect in their software isn’t Phil Ivey’s fault. Phil Ivey looks like he will be taking this case as well as the $9.6 Million that he was able to win.
Phil Ivey and The Borgata Casino has refused to make any comments regarding the lawsuit. The reason for this is because Borgata knows that Mr. Ivey will most likely win the lawsuit as it was their mistake in the software.
