High Stake FOBT Players Moving Their Action Online

first_imgEmbed from Getty ImagesHaving been told that due to new gambling regulations imposed on all betting shop operators in the UK, that their fixed odds betting terminal or “FOBT’s” as they are much better known must now offer players a maximum stake limit of no more than £2 per game played off, many of them have been feeling the pinch.In fact, many of them have announced that hundreds of their betting shops across Great Britain are to close in the very near future, as due to the income generated by those gaming machines has dropped so significantly, they are unable to make them financially viable.That has of course posed a problem for the high-stake players that used to flock to such venues to play the roulette and blackjack games and slot machines that were available on those machines, for they have had to look for other places to play them at.Some players have chosen to visit land based casinos close by where they live to get their high stake casino game playing fix, however most of them have chosen to move their gambling action online, were there are still able to play casino games of any type for some very high stake amounts.New Rules Regarding Online UK CasinosThere are some changes on the horizon regarding UK online casinos, much like the changes that have been imposed on operators of FOBT’s, for MP’s in the UK have been looking into bringing about legislative changes regarding the maximum stake limits that online casino game players can gamble for.It is now increasingly looking likely that UK casino operators are going to have the same restrictions imposed on them as UK bookmakers do, and as such casinos that hold a full UK Gambling Commission issued license may soon have to set their online slot machines in such a way that players cannot play them for stake levels of more than £2 per spin.That is to ensure that online players are afforded the same protections as land-based slot machine players and are not going to put themselves at risk of playing any type of slot game for too high a stake level.If that is something that does become law however, the only way that a high rolling and high stake slot game player is going to be able to play for stake levels of over £2 per spin is by playing at an online casino site that is not licensed in the UK and is based offshore, which is in fact very easy to do.Responsible Gambling Initiatives The UK Gambling Commission is always dreaming up lots of new responsible gambling initiatives, one of which is the responsible gaming week initiative that each of their licensed sites and venues must actively promote.There are also some organisations that have been set up to help problem gamblers give up gambling in any shape or form and one of them is Gamstop.What Gamstop offers problem gamblers is a one stop type of service, whereby they can sign up to their national database, and by doing so all operators that are part of that scheme are then going to for all intents and purposes ban those gamblers from their sites, venues and/or apps.It is basically a service that allows anyone who does gamble to be able to self-exclude themselves from multiplier different sites all at the same time, but once your name is added to that database you are going to find it impossible to be able to sign up to and be able to gamble online at any gambling related site that is licensed in the UK.Gambling Sites Not Part of GamstopFor those of you out there that for one reason or another are on the lookout for non Gamstop casinos at which to play at, or for that matter are eager to sign up to any type of gambling site that is not part of Gamstop then please do take your time looking around the web for such sites.You will need to do your own due diligence to ensure those non Gamstop casino sites that you do decide to start playing at are going to be offering you a fully rounded gaming experience.By fully rounded I do of course mean casinos that have a large and impressive range of certified fair and random casino games, and sites that offer plenty of ways for players to make a deposit and a withdrawal and casinos that are generous when it comes to the value and frequency of bonus offers and promotional deals.Also, right at the top of any checklist of wants and demands of any online casino player, should be access to rapid winning pay-outs too, so make sure any sites you do chose to play at are always going to go that extra mile to ensure you can cash out and get paid rapidly and with no long and drawn out delays.

Buitendag runner-up in Roxy Pro Gold Coast

first_img12 March 2014South African surfing star Bianca Buitendag claimed a career-best runner-up finish in the Roxy Pro Gold Coast at Snapper Rocks in Queensland, Australia on Tuesday, and then promptly pledged to give her prize money to charity.“I’m so overwhelmed by this experience,” Buitendag said after the final. “It’s a first time for me and I didn’t quite know what to expect.“It’s a bit like a dream for me. I’m giving my prize money to charity. We are so lucky and we have so much already. It goes a long way.”First finalThe 20-year-old from Victoria Bay in the Western Cape posted a convincing victory over the USA’s Lakey Peterson in their semi-final match-up, which was held in excellent one-to-1.5 metre waves, to reach the final of a World Championship Tour (WCT) event for the first time in just her second year at the top level of women’s surfing.Buitendag, who was crowned the 2013 ASP Women’s Rookie of the Year, had her hopes of fairy tale maiden victory dashed in the final by five-time ASP Women’s world champion and Snapper Rocks local Stephanie Gilmore, who won her fifth Roxy Pro title with a dominant showing.‘The best feeling in the world’“I haven’t felt this feeling in a while,” Gilmore said. “It’s the best feeling in the world to have all your friends and family around and high five everyone.Buitendag’s confidence-boosting run to the final, during which she also defeated 2013 ASP number two Tyler Wright of Australia in the quarter-finals, Alessa Quizon of Hawaii in round four and Australia’s Laura Enever in round two, lifted the South African to number two in the 2014 Women’s WCT rankings going into the next event, the Drug Aware Margaret River Pro in Western Australia, which starts on 2 April.Men’s winnerThe Quiksilver Pro Gold Coast presented by BOQ, stop number one on the Samsung Galaxy ASP WCT, which ran alongside the women’s competition, was won by Gabriel Medina, who became the first Brazilian winner of the event and the first goofy-footed surfer (rides with right foot in front) to clinch the title since 2004.He scored a sensational come-from-behind victory over home-town favourite and 2012 ASP world champion Joel Parkinson, who had led throughout the 35-minute final after opening his account with a ride of 9.0 (out of 10).As he had done against Australia’s Taj Burrow in the semi-finals and three-time ASP world champ Mick Fanning in the quarters, Medina kept his challenge going until the final seconds of each heat, scoring buzzer-beating victories on each occasion.South African resultsSouth Africa’s Travis Logie finished 13th overall after defeating Hawaiian prodigy John John Florence in round two before falling to Burrow in round three.Jordy Smith, who ended 2013 ranked fourth in the world, was uncharacteristically eliminated early in the event and finished equal 25th.RESULTSWOMENFinalStephanie Gilmore (Aus) 15.80 def.

Chung’s upset over Djokovic raises tennis profile at home

first_img2 ‘newbie’ drug pushers fall in Lucena sting Tennis has struggled to take off in South Korea, partly because of the expense and a relative lack of facilities and coaches.Also missing has been a role model with success on the international stage to inspire a new generation of players. Until Monday, the best performances by Korean players came from Lee Hyun-taik, who reached the round of 16 at the U.S. Open, and Lee Duk-hee, who made the women’s fourth round at the 1981 U.S. Open.Chung’s success could be a game-changer.“If we have all the right support then there is the potential for Korea to produce enough good players,” Son Sung-ri, a coach who works with Chung, told Seoul’s CBS Radio. “It is good if Chung can have success and if people start to have more interest in the Australian Open and tennis in general.”“Of course, our target is always to try and win,” Son added. “We shouldn’t count our chickens however as there is still a lot of hard work to be done.”ADVERTISEMENT Djokovic was full of praise for Chung, who turned professional in 2014 and climbed 122 places in the rankings in 2015. Injures in 2017 limited Chung’s appearances but gave time to make changes to his grip and other technical adjustments.“He definitely has the game to be a top 10 player, without a doubt,” Djokovic said. “How far he can go? That depends on him. I’m sure that he’s going to get some really good results in the future.”The 12-time Grand Slam champion was impressed by the improvement of the bespectacled, softly-spoken Chung, who took up tennis as a boy in an attempt to improve his eyesight.“There’s a big difference. Obviously, he’s physically stronger. I think he got some big matches in the past 15 months on the big stage.”Chung’s previous Grand Slam best was the third round of the 2017 French Open, but he made headlines last November for winning the inaugural edition of the Next Generation ATP finals.As well as having a great opportunity to reach the last four, Chung is making waves at home.“Today, victory is for my country, I think tennis is coming up,” he said.

(AP Photo/Andy Brownbill)SEOUL, South Korea — It took something unique to make tennis the center of sports attention in South Korea, where the Winter Olympics are only weeks away from opening.Hyeon Chung’s win over six-time Australian Open champion Novak Djokovic did the trick. The headlines ran “Sensation” after Chung became the first Korean to reach the quarterfinals of a major.ADVERTISEMENT The No. 58-ranked Chung beat his childhood hero on Rod Laver Arena to secure a spot in a quarterfinal against No. 97-ranked Tennys Sandgren, who had never won a match at a major until last week. So expectations are growing.“For the Korean fans watching me live in Korea right now, I sincerely thank you for cheering me on and for watching me this late.” Chung, speaking in Korean, said in an on-court interview broadcast live. As he spoke, he looked the direction of his parents and brother who were in the crowd.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSWATCH: Drones light up sky in final leg of SEA Games torch runSPORTSLillard, Anthony lead Blazers over ThunderSPORTSMalditas save PH from shutout“I am still not finished in this tournament and I will show you a better performance on Wednesday.”The mainstream media was full of praise, and social media was buzzing — former President Lee Myung-bak issued a post saying “I am supporting the ongoing challenge of the beautiful young man Chung Hyeon.” Trending Articles PLAY LIST 00:50Trending Articles00:50Trending Articles00:50Trending Articles01:29Police teams find crossbows, bows in HK university01:35Panelo suggests discounted SEA Games tickets for students02:49Robredo: True leaders perform well despite having ‘uninspiring’ boss02:42PH underwater hockey team aims to make waves in SEA Games01:44Philippines marks anniversary of massacre with calls for justice01:19Fire erupts in Barangay Tatalon in Quezon City NEXT BLOCK ASIA 2.0 introduces GURUS AWARDS to recognize and reward industry influencers Typhoon Kammuri accelerates, gains strength en route to PH John Lloyd Cruz a dashing guest at Vhong Navarro’s wedding Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.
