Belgian Court Rejects French Tennis Federation's Case Against Gambling Companies

A court in Liege, Belgium has rejected the case brought by the French Tennis Federation against three European gambling companies in a bid to prevent them from accepting bets on tennis tournaments. Although the FTF said that the gambling activities by BWin, Ladbrokes and Betfair were 'staining' the sport's reputation, and demanded an immediate stop plus a fine of 5000 Euros a day for violating the ban, the Belgian judge thought differently and dismissed the case altogether.

EGBA's Secretary General Sigrid Ligne said after the ruling: "EU-licensed bookmakers are professionals that have a high level of expertise, know-how and risk management skills. This has been clearly recognized by the Belgian judge looking at the fact-based evidence to dismiss all the claims in this case."

The Belgian court was satisfied that the gambling companies had done all they could to ensure that no illegal activities were taking place and that sufficient steps were taken to counter underage and problem gambling.

Intertops Casino Celebrates 10 Years of Success

In a world as volatile as that of the online casino, it is rare to find a site that has managed to withstand over a decade of successful operations. Intertops Casino, however, has stuck fast in the market, providing a solid reputation that has players trusting them with their money. "Trust is everything in this business," said Michl Posch of Intertops. "To earn that trust you have to pay out all winnings quickly and reliably. That may seem pretty basic but not all operators make it a top priority as Intertops has ever since it began its sportsbook in London twenty-five years ago."

Intertops Casino has worked with one of the best software companies in the world, Microgaming, from the very beginning and is committed to churning out new games on a regular basis. "New games are released every single month so there's never a need to look for any other casino to keep your interest up," noted a popular online casino portal.

Players should look out for special birthday celebrations and promotions on the site.

GBP 1 million Bets a Day on Interactive Live Roulette Show

NetPlay TV Plc broke industry records by achieving bets valued at over GBP 1 million in a single a day through its popular Live Roulette show. The show pays out GBP 6-million in prize money each month and is aired seven days a week on Sky Television 24. The show works interactively, allowing players to position their chips through their telephone or the website, and then watch as the dealer spins the wheel.

"Exceeding GBP 1m of bets in a single day is another milestone for the business," said the chairman and chief executive of NetPlay TV Plc, Martin Higginson. "When we acquired the 'Live Roulette' business just over 12 months ago, average daily bets were just over GBP 100,000. To grow this by ten times is a real credit to the entire NetPlay TV team."

Number of Online Bingo Players Rises Significantly in UK

A leading online bingo portal has released statistics to show that more players than ever are enjoying the game of bingo on the internet. The number of players from the United Kingdom has risen significantly, especially in the last six months, due to a number of land-based bingo halls closing, as well as public smoking ban that has affected these halls. All in all, since September, online bingo sites have recorded an increase of 19% in player traffic.

The MD for the portal said: "I don't think this increase has taken anyone that works in the online bingo industry by surprise. What we have today is the big online bingo clubs aggressively using media to acquire players in order to gain a foothold in the growing marketplace. We expect this to continue for some time yet."

CryptoLogic Won't be Affected by Dutch Gambling Decision

CryptoLogic, one of the industry's leading software providers, has expressed its disappointment in the Dutch parliament's decision to block Holland Casino's plans to establish an online gambling site, of which the company was part of the deal. However, it was quick to announce that it would not be affected materially in any way by the narrow 37:35 vote.

"CryptoLogic never places all its bets on one table," said Brian Hadfield, the company's President and CEO. "That's why this decision will have no material impact on our business. We recognized the challenge in Holland early and prepared our business by accelerating other revenue-generating initiatives."

CryptoLogic will be releasing brand new games in the coming months, including non-download poker offerings. Other projects include providing software to the World Poker Tour's German and Spanish online casino sites, as well as to Betsafe and Sun Poker.

Slotland Announces Biggest Jackpot Win on its Site

Slotland, one of the most popular slot and casino sites in the industry, announced that one lucky winner grabbed nearly $200,000 in what has become the casino's biggest progressive jackpot payout to date. Slots action was heating up before the win, because the jackpot had not been won in the average 6-8 weeks time period, as usually happens at Slotland.

The Canadian winner, TexasTeaser, made a last minute decision to switch from his usual video poker fun to the Treasure Box slots game - a choice that earned him the massive windfall. I usually stick with video poker," said the player who has been a regular at the site for five years. "I don't know what made me think I should take a spin or two on the slots that day instead, but I'm sure glad I did!"
