The State Court of Appeals for Kentucky has put a case which involved the seizure of 132 International gambling domain websites on hold earlier on this week. The courts ruled that the Interactive Gaming Council has the right to be involved with every aspect of this case.
The ruling came from a panel of three judges and these judges noted that the attorneys involved in this case treated the domain owners as a group but is now looking for the opportunity to have each individuals owner trailed. This way the Interactive Gaming Council could not become involved in the case. Either way the attorneys won’t get what they want as the courts ruled that any case involved with these domains will have evidence from the Interactive Gaming Council. This has made the attorneys involved in the case upset as they will now not be able to protect the identities of their client.
Judge Allison wrote in the court’s ruling the following: The Commonwealth will not turn the tables of this case and the attorneys will have to represent all the owners as a group just as they once wanted to. It will take far too much time in the courts to trail each one of the owners of these illegal gambling domain websites. Until the time where the attorneys feel it is best to return to courts with a group trailing the case will be put on hold.”

It shows that we are leaders in the industry and it will be great for players as the gaming experience will increase. It also helps the businesses running these gambling services and it will help increase the economy of both of our states. We hope that this new deal that we just made will serve as a model fot future states that will offer legalized online gambling.”

The Division of Gaming Enforcement in New Jersey just released the online betting guidelines for their state. This allows for operators and players to know what they can and cannot do. Some of the guidelines placed into this new document include:
- Once the player’s account balances reaches zero the operator must end the bonus promo. This will allow for the wagering requirements to return to normal.
- The Operator can choose if the customer’s first bet comes from their deposit or the bonus.
- Players have the option to abandon their bonus halfway through it and cash out any money they have in their player account.
- Operators may set a limit on how much a player can win during a bonus.
- Operators who wish to offer promotions to their players must demonstrate to the regulator that the bonus can bring in revenue for the operator.
- None of the online gambling restrictions apply to the operator if the promotion is associated to their land based casinos.
In other New Jersey gambling news the Spokeswoman at NJDGE announced that players who want to play the soft launch on November 21st would be limited to only eight hours of gameplay on both days (21st-22nd). This is so that the casinos don’t overload with players, crash and then have to go through the repairs for full launch which is set a week after the 22nd.
The legalization of online gambling in New Jersey is coming into full effect as the end of the month. Famous poker internet firm PokerStars still hasn’t been given their approval to operate within the state. Industry leaders suspect that there is an underlying reasons as to why PokerStars hasn’t been given the A Okay yet.
Earlier on in the year PokerStars tried to purchase the “Atlantic Club Casino“. They failed in their attempts to do so, instead PokerStars is now patterning up with the “Resorts Hotel Casino”. This will once again give PokerStars the opportunity to operate within the State of New Jersey but before they can do so they’ll have to be approved by the State. Industry leaders believe that if they weren’t approved the first time they won’t be approved the second time. It is suspected that the issue that is stopping New Jersey from approving PokerStars is all of the times they’ve been caught of money laundering.
It has been a couple of years since PokerStars has done anything like that so some industry leaders have suggested that the paper work they handed in for approval is wrong. This can easily be fixed by PokerStars and “Resorts Hotel Casino” within a few days. PokerStars wasn’t the only big name to be declined of operation in New Jersey, the second ones to be declined is Caesars Entertainment.
