Online Gambling Is No Sure Bet For States Even With DOJ Ruling

Stay tuned.

Sparsely populated states may lack enough gamblers: Most states are too small to support an in-state online casino. One state could team with another to form a larger casino entity, according to authorities. The move could allow states to implement their own intrastate virtual casinos and card rooms, tapping yet another gambling revenue stream in a stale economy. Raymond Lesniak (D) succeeds in pushing through a bill before the Jersey legislature adjourns Jan. Software can already let the host and law enforcement know whether a player is actually in the approved state at the time, Schrier said. That’s no sure thing, according to attorney Stephen Schrier, head of the gaming practice at the law firm Blank Rome and a former regulator for the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement. “Little states don’t have enough to make it work.” Cabot wondered whether his state, the nation’s casino capital, would have enough resident gamblers to support a virtual gaming site. The payoff from Internet casinos, however, won’t be automatic. Every state will have issues interpreting the legalities.

Online gambling hasn’t been approved in most states. Rose called the development a gift from the Obama administration to debt-ridden states. Games played against the house, such as blackjack and roulette, wouldn’t be a problem for smaller states, others said.

The Justice Department may have paved the way for Internet gambling, but that doesn’t mean everything will come up aces for online poker players. In California, all three are in the mix. “Iowa likes being the first on these things,” Rose said.

“No one can assume that it’s a free ride to Internet poker, said attorney Anthony Cabot, a gaming specialist at the Lewis and Roca firm in Las Vegas.. Schrier said it’s possible that at least one state will implement online gaming this year — most likely Nevada as it already is entertaining bids from software makers and operators.

Who gets the money? Lotteries, Native American-run casinos and brick-and-mortar card rooms will all be vying for a share of the profits. A smartphone application, for example, could cut off a gambler in New Jersey as soon as he or she steps into New York. Both the casino-affiliated computer servers and players presumably would have to be inside the state for any transactions to be legal, so states must be staked with a sufficient pool of gamblers, he said. 9. The cost of software and monitoring is too great for less-populated states to justify Internet casino play, especially poker, which requires a certain amount of players at the “table.” “You have to have enough players to populate that ecosphere,” Cabot said. One study determined the state could net as much as $13 million in tax revenue annually as a result. I. Those envisioning a boom in virtual casinos and card rooms can expect several obstacles.

Other states might also wrestle with what constitutes an in-state gambler. With states desperate to close a combined $95 billion 2012 deficit, gambling has emerged as a possible quick fix. And if the host should misinterpret the law or be lax in applying it, a slew of other federal statutes, including the Travel Act, are still on the books, according to legal eagles.

New Jersey could be next if an aggressive campaign by State Sen. So the conundrum is: If the computer server is in Atlantic City but the online gambler is in Trenton, where is the betting taking place? Jersey’s most recent bill has decided it’s where the server is. 23. This opinion could even be challenged or jettisoned, as Howard Stutz of the Las Vegas Review-Journal observed.

Another early adopter could be Iowa, a relatively prosperous state that has eyed online gambling for years. Iowa began the riverboat casino trend in 1991. Nelson Rose, a Whittier College law professor who specializes in gambling, predicted that California would issue as many as three licenses to keep all parties happy. The DOJ said it was reversing its stance that the Wire Act of 1961 prevents online lottery sales and, by implication, other Internet gambling except sports betting.

While authorities agree that the Justice Department’s decision is significant, it is a mere first step on the road toward legalizing casino gambling in cyberspace. Only Nevada and the District of Columbia already have legalized (but do not yet host) intra-regional casinos online, leaving 49 states to push through an online gambling law if they want it. But it might not be a gift that starts giving as fast as many might hope.

That’s the word from legal experts following the department’s about-face announcement Dec. “The tribes see [online gambling] as inevitable and something that must be shared,” he said.

Nuances could be a nuisance. In Jersey, for instance, an existing law permits casino gambling only within Atlantic City, Schrier pointed out. But he added that the lottery would likely be the loser in this scenario, with powerful Indian interests getting a hefty chunk of the action

Themes, Supplies, Decorations, Gifts, and More

However, if you would like to do that, consider the following fun options:

Decorated “4” and “0” numbers. You can purchase large wooden or chipboard numbers at any big box craft store. Create a gift basket filled with nostalgia items from the recipient’s childhood or youth.. Consider recording favorite quotes or memories or decorating them ahead of time and then letting the party guest sign them.

40 Sucks or 40 Blows.

If you are attending a 40th birthday and are interested in bringing a gift, you certainly don’t have to bring a gift with a 40th theme. There are numerous options for decorating and personalizing them. Take 40 helium filled balloons and attach a photo of the birthday man or woman to each balloon with one picture from each year of his or her life.

Retro gift basket. This is not one of my personal favorites, as I prefer to take a more positive attitude about birthdays, but it’s one of the most popular birthday gift ideas out there. The less popular but just as fun 40 Rocks gift with Pop Rocks instead of suckers is also a great gift.

40 Photos. Many people choose to use suckers or blow pops to make this gift.

The “secret” To Picking Horse Race Winners

Therefore it makes sense top specialise in one area such as flat racing, national hunt or all weather racing. Practically every horse race meeting is covered live on TV with race replays later. They often promise a fast and quick way to wealth beyond my wildest dreams. If this is a secret then it is one of the worst kept in the whole history of secrets. The key to finding horse race winners is simply knowledge.

There has never been a better time to become knowledgeable on the subject of horse racing. Of course you will need to send them some money, often quite a lot of money to discover the “secret”.

Of course as rational people we know there is no such thing as a “secret” method of finding horse race winners. This type of specialisation can give you a distinct advantage over the average punter.

So if you work to build up your knowledge of horse racing and perhaps specialise you will have no need to pay for any “secrets”.

There is one way that you can improve your chance of finding winners and making your horse race gambling profitable. It is all there just waiting for anyone to go and access it.

The more you know about horse racing and race horses the more likely you are to find winners on a consistent basis. Many of the most successful horse race gamblers have an almost encyclopaedic knowledge of horses, trainers, courses and all other relevant factors.

You will already have the advantage that you need and that is no secret.. There are specialist books and videos on all aspects of the sport. It is even possible to delve deeper and specialise in specific types of race such as 2 year olds, hurdles or sprints. They did not achieve this knowledge overnight but worked hard to acquire it.

Practically everyday I receive a letter or email offering me a horse racing system which is going to make me rich. Racing has been a popular sport for over 300 years and in all that time no one has discovered an infallible way of picking winners or if they have they are not telling anyone about it.

Horse racing is a huge subject and it can be difficult if not impossible to be an expert in all aspects. How can they do this? It is because they have discovered a “secret” that no one else knows, (well no one who has not bought their system) that cannot fail to make you wealthy

5 Online Auctions That Sell Vintage Toys Or Old Toys (besides eBay)

The quality of the finds differ greatly between stores and geographical area. I’ve had mixed success in their brick and mortar stores — it seems like location is everything. Even though I still use eBay, I am finding there are a whole lot of other sites out there with quality vintage toys. Some offer multiple shippers, some only one.

I am always looking for more online sources for the toys I collect. The online store removes that obstacle.

There are several toy categories — so whether you collect board games, Barbies or something in between, you’ll most likely find something of interest.

The site is easy to navigate and has a nice search function. There is an original 1947 Tonka Steam Shovel (current bid $81), a 10×22 inch Tonka Winnebago (current bid $46) and multiple construction Tonkas, like graders, backhoes, etc.

You may be surprised at the deals you can find on this site. Here are five Web sites that I think rival, if not surpass, eBay for content, price and ease of navigation and shopping..

Good luck collecting!

I collect Tonka toys and right now as I write this, here are a few of the Tonkas up for sale. My only complaint is shipping — the options seem to be limited by individual stores
