BGC ices gambling talk on football social media sites


The UK Betting and Gaming Council (BGC) is asking football clubs to refrain from discussing and promoting gambling on their social media sites in as part of an effort to avoid triggering problem gamblers. It’s move that may seem extreme to the layman, but will likely help keep UK gambling operators a step ahead of UK gambling regulators.
Guidelines for how football clubs should handle discussions of gambling were sent out by the BGC late last week and utilize a plea from 50 former gambling addicts to make the case. They pointed out that seeing their favorite club site promoting gambling caused them “distress” and “encouraged” them to place wagers.
As an effort to avoid these triggering moments, the BGC is recommending that football clubs refrain from promoting gambling operators or bonus offers and their “organic tweets”. This is a nod to the reality that gambling offers are ubiquitous on social media and that no one is really more than a click or two away from them on the internet anyways.
BGC officials sent a letter detailing the new code of conduct to 11 football clubs, as well as to social media operators.
In a statement reported on by SBC News, Brigid Simmonds OBE, Chairman of the BGC described the importance of the new standards saying, “Our members rightly have a zero tolerance approach to gambling by under-18s, so as an industry we are understandably concerned that children may be exposed to betting adverts on social media platforms. Our new guidelines make clear the standards expected of football clubs when they post gambling promotions on social media, and I look forward to them being put into practice as soon as possible.”
The BGC guidelines are not legally binding, but members of the BGC who wish to remain in good standing are expected to abide by them.

PokerStars Rolls Out New LSNG Leaderboard Promotion, Tetris + Spin & Go

PokerStars has rolled out Tetris + Spin & Go, a temporary takeover of their ultra-popular lottery sit and go game with a new theme and a lucrative new promotion for players.

F5poker first revealed that PokerStars was working on such a promotion back in September 2020. On Monday, it deployed globally on most licenses on the global dot-com pool as well the European shared liquidity network of Spain, France and Portugal.

The Spin and Go lobby in the client has been redesigned with a Tetris aesthetic, as have the tables. The game itself remains unchanged—fast, winner-takes-all sit and gos with a random top prize.

What is new is the promotion on top: Tetris-themed leader boards. While the mechanics are fairly complicated—it involves Line Clears, Levels and Game Scores—it boils down to daily player rankings where cash prizes are given out to the highest volume players.

For players that fall outside the cash prizes, the operator has a $5000 daily prize draw for players that finished in the top 500.

In total, the operator says that over $1.5 million will be paid out in the dot-com market and almost as much—€1 million—in the Southern European market from now until the end of March. This works out at over $33,000 daily in dot-com, and €23,000 in Southern Europe.

It appears to replace the previous long-running Spin & Go 20 and 50 leader boards. This had given away just over $20,000 a week and had run throughout much of 2020.

Criticisms of Michael Slepian’s Stanford study on poker tells and hand movements (published 2015)


Some places the study was featured.
The following is reposted from a 2015 piece I wrote for Bluff magazine. It was originally located at this URL but has become unavailable due to Bluff going out of business. I saw this study mentioned recently in Maria Konnikova’s book ‘The Biggest Bluff’ and was reminded about this piece and noticed it was offline, so I wanted to share it again. A few notes on this piece:

The original title below and was more negative-sounding than I liked; Bluff chose it. Also, if I could rewrite this piece now, I’d probably choose less negative-sounding phrasing in some places. 
Regardless of the exact factors that might be at work in the found correlation, I realize it’s scientifically interesting that a significant correlation was found. But I also think it’s possible to draw simplistic and wrong conclusions from the study, and my piece hopefully gives more context about the factors that might be at work.

The Slepian Study on Betting Motions Doesn’t Pass Muster
A 2013 study¹ conducted at Stanford University by graduate student Michael Slepian and associates found a correlation between the “smoothness” of a betting motion and the strength of the bettor’s hand. In a nutshell, there was a positive correlation found between betting motions perceived as “smooth” and “confident” and strong hands. The quality of the betting motions was judged by having experiment participants watch short clips of players making bets (taken from the 2009 WSOP Main Event) and estimate the hand strength of those bets.
This experiment has gotten a lot of press over the last couple years. I first heard about it on NPR. Since, I’ve seen it referenced in poker blogs and articles and in a few mainstream news articles. I still occasionally hear people talk about it at the table when I play. I’ve had friends and family members reference it and send me links to it. It’s kind of weird how much attention it received, considering the tons of interesting studies that are constantly being done, but I guess it can be chalked up to the mystique and “sexiness” of poker tells.

The article had more than casual interest for me. I’m a former professional poker player and the author of two books on poker behavior: Reading Poker Tells and Verbal Poker Tells. I’ve been asked quite a few times about my opinion on this study, and I’ve been meaning to look at the study more closely and write up my thoughts for a while.
In this article, I’ll give some criticisms of the study and some suggestions for how this study (and similar studies) could be done better. This isn’t to denigrate the work of the experiment’s designers. I think this is an interesting study, and I hope it will encourage similar studies using poker as a means to study human behavior. But I do think it was flawed in a few ways, and it could be improved in many ways.
That’s not to say that I think their conclusion is wrong; in fact, in my own experience, I think their conclusion is correct. I do, however, think it’s a very weak general correlation and will only be practically useful if you have a player-specific behavioral baseline. My main point is that this study is not enough, on its own, to cause us to be confident about the conclusion.
I’ll give a few reasons for why I think the study is flawed, but the primary underlying reason is a common one for studies involving poker: the study’s organizers just don’t know enough about how poker works. I’ve read about several experiments involving poker where the organizers were very ignorant about some basic aspects of poker, and this affected the way the tests were set up and the conclusions that were reached (and this probably applies not just to poker-related studies but to many studies that involve an activity that requires a lot of experience to understand well).
Poker can seem deceptively simple to people first learning it, and even to people who have played it for decades. Many bad players lose money at poker while believing that they’re good, or even great players. In the same way, experiment designers may falsely believe they understand the factors involved in a poker hand, while being far off the mark.
Here are the flaws, as I see them, in this study:
1. The experimenters refer to all WSOP entrants as ‘professional poker players.’
This first mistake wouldn’t directly affect the experiment, but it does point to a basic misunderstanding of poker and the World Series of Poker, which might indirectly affect other aspects of the experiment and its conclusions.
Here are a couple examples of this from the study:
The World Series of Poker (WSOP), originating in 1970, brings together professional poker players every year (from the study’s supplemental materials)
These findings are notable because the players in the stimulus clips were highly expert professionals competing in the high-stakes WSOP tournament.
The WSOP Main Event is open to anyone and most entrants are far from being professional poker players. Categorizing someone’s poker skill can be difficult and subjective, but Kevin Mathers, a long-time poker industry worker, estimates that only 20% of WSOP Main Event entrants are professional (or professional-level) players.
This also weakens the conclusion that the results are impressive due to the players analyzed being professional-level. While the correlation found in this experiment is still interesting, it is somewhat expected that amateur players would have behavioral inconsistencies. I’d be confident in predicting that a similar study done on only video clips of bets made by professional poker players would not find such a clear correlation.
2. Hand strength is based on comparing players’ hands
This is a line from the study that explains their methodology for categorizing a player’s hand as ‘weak’ or ‘strong’:
Each player’s objective likelihood of winning during the bet was known (WSOP displays these statistics on-screen; however, we kept this information from participants by obscuring part of the screen).
They relied on the on-screen percentage graphics, which are displayed beside a player’s hand graphics in the broadcast. These graphics show the likelihood of a player’s hand winning; it does this by comparing it to the other players’ known hands. This makes it an illogical way to categorize whether a player believes he is betting a weak or strong hand.
If this isn’t clear, here’s a quick example to make my point:
A player has QQ and makes an all-in bet on a turn board of Q-10-10-8. Most people would say that this player has a strong hand and has every reason to believe he has a strong hand. But, if his opponent had 10-10, the player with Q-Q would have a 2.27% chance of winning with one card to come. According to this methodology, the player with the Q-Q would be judged as having a weak hand; if the test participants categorized that bet as representing a strong hand, they would be wrong.
It’s not stated in the study or the supplemental materials if the experimenters accounted for such obvious cases of how using the percentage graphics might skew the results. It’s also not stated how the experimenters would handle river (last-round) bets, when one hand has a 100 percent winning percentage and the losing hand has 0 percent (the only exception would be a tie).
It’s admittedly difficult to come up with hard-and-fast rules for categorizing hand strength for the purposes of such an experiment. As someone who has thought more than most about this problem, for the purpose of analyzing and categorizing poker tells, I know it’s a difficult task. But using the known percentages of one hand beating another known hand is clearly a flawed approach.
The optimal approach would probably be to come up with a system that pits a poker hand against a logical hand range, considering the situation, or even a random hand range, and uses that percentage-of-winning to rank the player’s hand strength. If this resulted in too much hand-strength ambiguity, the experiment designers could throw out all hands where the hand strength fell within a certain medium-strength range. Such an approach would make it more likely that only strong hand bets and weak hand bets were being used and, equally important for an experiment like this, that the player believed he or she was betting either a strong or weak hand.
3. Situational factors were not used to categorize betting motions
When considering poker-related behavior, situations are very important. A small continuation-bet on the flop is different in many ways from an all-in bet on the river. One way they are different: a small bet is unlikely to cause stress in the bettor, even if the bettor has a weak hand.
Also, a player making a bet on an early round has a chance for improving his hand; whereas a player betting on the river has no chance to improve his hand. When a player bets on the river, he will almost always know whether he is bluffing or value-betting; this is often not the case on earlier rounds, when hand strength is more ambiguous and undefined.
This experiment had no system for selecting the bets they chose for inclusion in the study. The usability of the clips was apparently based only on whether the clip meant certain visual needs of the experiment: i.e., did the footage show the entirety of the betting action and did it show the required amount of the bettor’s body?
From the study:
Research assistants, blind to experimental hypotheses, extracted each usable video in each installment, and in total extracted 22 videos (a standard number of stimuli for such studies; Ambady & Rosenthal, 1993) for Study 2 in the main text.
Study 1 videos required a single player be in the frame from the chest-up, allowing for whole-body, face-only, and arms-only videos to be created by cropping the videos. These videos were therefore more rare, and the research assistants only acquired 20 such videos.
The fact that clips were chosen only based on what they showed is not necessarily a problem. If a hand can be accurately categorized as strong or weak, then it doesn’t necessarily matter when during a hand it occurred. If there is a correlation between perceived betting motion quality and hand strength, then it will probably make itself known no matter the context of the bet.
Choosing bets only from specific situations would have made the experiment stronger and probably would have led to more definite conclusions. It could also help address the problem of categorizing hand strength. For example, if the experiment designers had only considered bets above a certain size that had occurred on the river (when all cards are out and there are no draws or semi-bluffs to be made), then that would result in polarized hand strengths (i.e., these bets would be very likely to be made with either strong or weak hands).
Also, the experiment’s method for picking clips sounds like it could theoretically result in all strong-hand bets being picked, or all weak-hand bets being picked. There is nothing in the experiment description that requires a certain amount of weak hands or strong hands. This is not in itself bad, but could affect the experiment in unforeseen ways.
For example, if most of the betting motion clips chosen were taken from players betting strong hands (which would not be surprising, as most significant bets, especially post-flop, are for value), then this could introduce some unforeseen bias into the experiment. One way this might happen: when a video clip shows only the betting motion (and not, for example, the bettor’s entire torso or just the face, as were shown to some study groups), this focus might emphasize the bet in the viewer’s mind and make the bet seem stronger. And if most of the hands-only betting clips were of strong-hand bets (and I have no idea how many were), the study participants watching only the hand-motion betting clips would falsely appear to be making good guesses.
My main point here is that thinking about the situational factors of a betting motion, and incorporating that into the experiment in some way, would have resulted in less ambiguity about the results. (It appears that it was difficult to find usable clips from a single WSOP event; in that case, the experimenters could just add footage from another WSOP Main Event to the study.)
4. The number of chips bet was not taken into account
The experiment designers did not take into account the chips that were bet. In their words:
During betting, each player pushes poker chips into the center of the table. Each chip has a specific color, which indicates a specific value. These values range from $25 to $100,000. This range of chip values has a crucial consequence for the current work. The number of chips does not correlate with the quality of the hand (see Table 1A in the main text). Players could move a stack of 20 chips into the center of the table, and this could be worth $500 or $2,000,000 (the winner of the 2009 WSOP won $8,547,042, thus the latter bet magnitude is a bet that can be made in the WSOP). Because no participants were professional poker players, nor considered themselves poker experts, they were not aware of chip values. They could not, then, use the number of chips as a valid cue to judge poker hand quality.
It’s true that your average person would not know what the chip colors at the WSOP Main Event mean. But it seems naïve to think that seeing the chips being bet couldn’t possibly have an effect on the experiment.
For one thing, the number of chips being bet could bias a participant to think a bet was stronger or weaker, whether correctly or incorrectly. What if all the strong-hand bets in the study were also bets that involved a lot of chips? (This is not implausible because smaller bets with weak hands are common early in a hand, when bets are small, whereas larger bets later in the hand are more likely to represent strong hands.) And what if some of the study participants were able to deduce (consciously or unconsciously) the strength of the bet from the number of chips?
Also, it’s possible that some of the test participants were knowledgeable (consciously or not) about some WSOP chip colors and what their denominations were. Or they were able to deduce (consciously or not), from the arrangement and number of chips, what the chip values were. (For example, large denomination chips are generally required to be kept at the front of a player’s stack.)
Again, this could have been addressed by selecting bets taken only from specific situations and only of certain bet sizes. If all bets chosen were above a certain bet size, and this was communicated to the study participants, then this would have lessened the impact of the chips being able to be seen.
5. Quality of “smoothness” was subjective
The experiment was based on the perceptions of study participants watching the assembled video clips. It was not based on objective measurements of what constitutes “smoothness” of a betting motion. This was a known issue in the experiment:
Thus, both player confidence and smoothness judgments significantly predicted likelihoods of winning, which suggests that movement smoothness might be a valid cue for assessing poker hand quality. It is unknown, however, how participants interpreted “smoothness” or whether the players’ movements that participants rated as smooth were truly smoother than other players’ movements. Other physical factors, such as speed, likely played a role.
This is not a major criticism; I think using perception is a fine way to find a correlation, especially for a preliminary study. But I think it does mean that we have no reason to be confident in the idea that smoothness of betting motion is correlated with hand strength. If there is are correlations between betting motion and hand strength (which I believe there are), these could be due to other aspects of arm motion or hand motion, such as: the betting speed, the position of the hands, the height of the hand, or other, more obscure, factors.
In summary
Again, I don’t mean to denigrate the experiment designers and the work they’ve done. I think this was an interesting experiment, and I think it’s probable the correlation they noticed exists (however weak the correlation may be).
Also, as someone who is very interested in poker behavior, I’d love to see similar studies be done. My main goal in writing these criticisms and suggestions was to emphasize that poker is complex, as is poker behavior. There are many behavioral factors in a seemingly simple hand of poker and taking these factors into account can make an experiment stronger and the results more conclusive.
Patricia Cardner, PhD, EdD, is a poker player and the author of Positive Poker, a book about the psychological characteristics of professional poker players. She had this to say about poker’s use in scientific studies:
“While researchers often have the best of intentions, it is difficult for them to fully understand the nuances of poker. Researchers who reach out to poker players for help can make more informed decisions about the research areas they choose to pursue, increase reliability and validity, and improve the overall quality of their results and conclusions.”

WSOP Michigan FAQ

Online poker went live in Michigan in January of 2021, and it was only with one operator, PokerStars Michigan. Other licensed companies launched online casinos and sportsbooks, but they held back on the poker segment to begin with.

It was not long before the state showed its online poker potential: PokerStars MI has become the largest regulated online poker room in the States, with the average traffic of 400 players in the very first week.

This development could well have prompted other stakeholders to move their online poker plans up. WSOP.com is one: While the final launch date for WSOP MI is still up in the air, as the company is currently focused more on going live in Pennsylvania before the summer, it might not be too long of a wait.

WSOP is one of the largest and best-known brands in the poker world and the name behind the largest yearly tournament series taking place in Las Vegas and (as of late) online. The company will certainly want to establish a foothold in Michigan.

On this page, we bring answers and predictions for the launch of WSOP.com in Michigan. Some of the information is based off of what we know about the two rooms currently in operation, namely WSOP Nevada and WSOP NJ, and we will make sure to update the information here as we obtain it.

When will WSOP MI go live?

There is no definitive date for the launch of WSOP Michigan. The operator is currently divided between several fronts, putting a lot of effort towards the launch in Pennsylvania. A realistic timeframe would be a few months, but it is possible the operator moves the launch date up and surprises MI players. The operator seems set on launching before the end of 2021.

Do I have to be physically present in the state to access WSOP Michigan?

You need to be within the state borders to play for real money at WSOP MI. This is one feature that all US regulated sites have in common and there is no reason to think that things will be any different when WSOP.com launches in Michigan.

The operator uses geolocation to make sure players adhere to this rule, and trying to bypass it is grounds for having your account closed. Also worth noting is that the minimum age limit to legally play on WSOP.com is 21.

Will WSOP.com Michigan combine player pools with other states?

Creating interstate online poker compacts is currently work in progress, not just for WSOP but for poker operators in the US in general. WSOP.com aims to offer combined player pools at some point, but it is difficult to say when and if this will happen.

Right now, there is an ongoing battle with regards to the Wire Act interpretation and if it should apply to online poker. Things are currently looking good for poker players and operators, and if the trend continues, we will start to see more rooms combining their pools across states.

Since WSOP MI is set to launch later this year, it is not impossible that there will be more clarity on the matter by that time. So, in theory, the room might have combined pools from the get-go, although it is likelier that they will kick off catering to Michigan players only and potentially expanding later.

What kind of a welcome offer will there be for new players?

Looking at what the room offers at New Jersey and Nevada, players from Michigan are probably looking at a 100% welcome bonus up to the maximum of $1000.

Like most poker bonuses, you will not receive the full amount immediately, but you will need to unlock it by playing real money cash games and tournaments and gathering Action Player Points (APPs). The bonus is released as follows:

The initial $10 releases at the rate of $1 for every 10 APPs
You will unlock the next $50 by receiving $5 for every 50 APPs
The rest of the bonus releases at the rate of $10 for every 100 APPs

The timeframe to release the bonus is usually 60 days, so there is plenty of time to do it. Action Player Points are awarded based on the rake generated, as follows:

2 APPs for $1 paid in cash games (based on contributed rake)
2 APPs for every $1 paid in tournament fees

Will there any other rewards offered by WSOP MI?

WSOP Michigan will very likely feature their simple but rather generous Poker Rewards program. Action Player Points that you gather by playing real money games can be used for more than just to unlock bonuses.

These points can be turned into real money when you convert them to WSOP Points. The number of WSOP Points you can get from your APPs depends on your loyalty level:

Bronze: Achieve 200+ APPs in a month and get 4x WSOP Points’ multiplier.
Silver: 750+ monthly points & 10x WSOP Points’ multiplier.
Elite: Gather 1500+ APPs and enjoy 12.5x multiplier.
Champions Club: Based on the yearly number of points. Achieve 20,000 or more and get to the maximum multiplier of 16x.

You can exchange WSOP Points for cash on your account. The process is very simple and you can redeem the points at the rate of $1 for 100 WSOP Points. The minimum number of points you can convert is 1000.

What deposit methods will be available for WSOP Michigan players?

WSOP offers a good variety of deposit options for the players in other states, and it is likely that Michigan players will have access to the same or at least very similar array of deposit methods, which includes:

MasterCard, Visa, and Discover
PayPal
ACH
PayNearMe
In-person deposit at the cashier cage

Some of these options have been thoroughly tried and tested by players, and PayPal and ACH seem to be top picks. Of course, in-person deposits are always a good option if you happen to find yourself in the vicinity of the actual property.

Credit and debit cards are always touch-and-go in the US. Despite the fact the sites have licenses to offer online poker games, many banks still block gambling-related transactions by default, so there is no guarantee your card will work with WSOP MI.

Does WSOP have a land-based partner in Michigan?

WSOP still does not have a land-based partner casino in the state of Michigan, which is a crucial step in the process. Before they launch, they will either need to find a partner in the state or wait for interstate compacts to become available.

What cash games will WSOP MI offer?

The most popular game offered at WSOP.com is No Limit Hold’em, with stakes going up to $25/$50. Other available cash game tables include Pot Limit Omaha and Omaha 8, as well as some stud games.

The bulk of action happens at NLHE and PLO tables, though, and this trend is likely to keep at WSOP MI as well. If you prefer other variations, the action is usually scarce and mostly found at lower limits.

Will WSOP.com MI offer BLAST poker tournaments?

WSOP Michigan will likely offer BLAST games. These are four-handed sit and go tournaments featuring the hyper-turbo structure and offering a chance to fight for the prize that can go as high as 10,000x your buy-in.

This is an exciting format, not just because of the jackpot potential, but also because there is a timer set for every game. Once the time runs out, all players are forced to go all in every hand until there is just one player remaining holding all the chips.

Does WSOP offer any form of fast-fold poker?

There are no fast-fold tables of any sort currently available at WSOP.com. This may change by the time WSOP MI is ready to launch, but at this point in time, the room does not offer any quick fold variations.

Is WSOP.com software any good?

While there are better online platforms out there, WSOP.com has done a fine job with the desktop software. The company is not too keen on implementing regular updates, but the fact is that WSOP.com offers a nice design and a good range of options to personalize your playing experience.

There are a few different deck designs on offer and a solid selection of avatars to choose from. The actual play interface is fairly simple but it is clean and easy to use.

It is worth mentioning that WSOP.com and 888 are getting ready to roll out a brand new client called Poker 8. This should be a major improvement on the existing software.

The plan is to roll out Poker 8 in Pennsylvania first and then move to other states. Depending on when WSOP Michigan goes live, players might have the privilege to play on the new platform from day one.

Will I be able to play WSOP Michigan from my phone?

Right now, WSOP.com offers mobile apps for Android and iOS devices, so Michigan players wanting to play from their phones and tablets should experience no problems. The current app does come with certain limitations, though. For example, you can only play one table at any given moment.

This problem, as well as many other smaller issues, should go away with the launch of the Poker 8 platform, as it will cover the mobile segment as well.

Sheldon Adelson: How the Legend Affected Poker and Intertops Login


Sheldon Adelson, an American businessman – and billionaire – died on January 11, 2021. At the age of 87, he lost his battle with cancer, after almost two years of treatments. And while Adelson owned many businesses, he will be mostly remembered for his involvement in the gambling industry.Over the years, the casino mogul took live gambling to an entirely new level. However, it was clear he wasn’t a big fan of online poker. How did this tycoon influence the industry? And what could he possibly have said to influence Intertops login options and online betting in general? Let’s take a closer look at the man’s history and involvement with poker.Adelson’s Career and Early LifeSheldon Gary Adelson was born in 1933 in Boston, and from a young age, it was clear he had an eye for business. At the age of 12, he began selling newspapers, which turned into a passion of his further down the line.After serving in the US Army, Adelson started various businesses, some more successful than others. He tried his luck in travel, hotel toiletries, and mortgage banking. But his first major success came when he helped build the Interface Group with several partners, launching the highly successful COMDEX. Soon enough, the technology trade show became one of the largest in the field, and Adelson helped run it smoothly till it was sold in 1995.His next project included venturing into the gambling industry, and in 1999, he opened the Venetian Resort Hotel Casino. Slowly but surely, it turned into a highly popular gambling resort. Later on, Adelson had the chance to expand his businesses in Macau, which is a beloved gambling destination for travelers. One casino turned into two, then three, and before he knew it – Adelson was in charge of a billion-dollar empire.In September 2020, Adelson was listed by Forbes as the 28th richest person in the world, with a net worth of $33.8 billion. A big chunk of that came from his share in the gambling empire, which was worth approximately $14 billion at the time of his death.Adelson’s Influence on Online PokerWhile Adelson opened many land-based casinos both in the US and abroad, he wasn’t a big supporter of online gambling. In fact, when the DOJ announced the Wire Act didn’t apply to online betting (under Obama’s administrations), the casino mogul did his best to fight that decision.He founded the Coalition to Stop Internet Gambling, trying to promote the Restoration of America’s Wire Act (RAWA) with little success. Later on, he supported multiple Republican presidential candidates, which were more likely to adopt his views on online betting.After spending a lot of money on the issue, he got some support from Trump’s administration, as the DOJ went back to its original stance on the Wire Act a few years ago.But while his campaigns against online gambling left a lot of players disheartened by his actions, there is no ignoring all the good things he did. According to the Las Vegas Review-Journal, Adelson donated millions of dollars to multiple causes. He supported wounded soldiers and contributed a lot to the fight against drug addiction – matters that were close to his heart.In ConclusionEven though Adelson campaigned against online gambling, he still deserves respect for all he was able to achieve in his life.

Ex-Broker Arrested for Taking $411K from Clients, Some Money Went to Casinos


Posted on: February 14, 2021, 10:02h.

Read MoreA debarred investment broker is out on bail after federal authorities charged him with stealing more than $400,000 from clients to pay personal debts, including money he owed casinos.
A former Long Island investment broker has been charged with stealing more than $400,000 from clients. Federal prosecutors said Apostolos Pitsironis used part if the money to pay off casino debts. (Image: Shutterstock)Apostolos Pitsironis, 52, faces up to 20 years in prison, according to a release from the US Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of New York. FBI agents arrested him Wednesday in Dix Hills on Long Island. He made his initial court appearance that same day.According to a complaint filed Tuesday by FBI Special Agent Rachel Cartwright, Pitsironis served as an advisor to an unnamed married couple for 10 years beginning in 2009. After he switched firms late in 2018, the couple moved their accounts to his new firm so he could continue to manage them.A January 2019 announcement in Newsday showed Janney Montgomery Scott LLC hired Pitsironis to be its first vice president located at its Melville office. Previously, he worked as a branch manager for Wells Fargo.Around that same time, authorities claim Pitsironis asked his clients for a $200,000 loan. They turned down his request.Nearly six months later, between May 2, 2019, and June 11, 2019, they allege he made 22 wire transfers from the victims’ accounts to one he and his wife controlled. In making the transfers, Pitsironis falsely said he received verbal approval to make the transfers.Financial advisors have a significant responsibility to appropriately manage the life savings of those who put their faith in them. Anyone who falls short on this front by engaging in illegal practices should, and will, be held accountable to the fullest extent of the law,” stated FBI Assistant Director-in-Charge William F. Sweeney, Jr. in a statement.Court records show Pitsironis posted the $200,000 bond on Wednesday.More Than $60,000 Went to CasinosCartwright claimed Pitsironis spent at least $62,402 at three casinos. He sent $40,502 to an unnamed Atlantic City casino, and then another $15,000 to a second casino in the New Jersey town.He also sent $2,000 to an unnamed casino in south Florida. Records indicate he also made more than $2,000 in payments toward a car and more than $1,700 to a landscaper.Pitsironis also allegedly made withdrawals totaling $18,600. That included a $4,900 disbursement at an ATM at the first unnamed Atlantic City casino.The funds became frozen about a week after the last transfers.“As alleged, the defendant stole hundreds of thousands of dollars from investors to pay his personal debts, violating the trust they had placed in him to manage their money safely and honestly,” Acting US Attorney Seth D. DuCharme said in a statement. “This Office is committed to protecting the investing public from corrupt financial advisors like the defendant who put greed before their clients’ best interests.”Bilking investors to pay off gambling debts or support a habit is not a new trend. Authorities have prosecuted several for operating Ponzi schemes to bankroll gaming sprees.Sports radio personality Craig Carton received a 42-month federal sentence after using $5.6 million of investors’ money meant for a ticket-reselling business to fuel a gambling habit. After serving about a year in prison, he is currently on home incarceration.Authority Banned Broker After CompliantThe Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) serves as a private regulatory authority over securities businesses. Its origins date back more than 80 years.FINRA’s BrokerCheck indicated a client filed a complaint on June 17, 2019, that Pitsironis transferred $411,000 out of their account without permission. The record indicates Janney Montgomery Scott settled the case in full.On June 19, records show that the firm terminated him after conducting its own review.On Sept. 9, 2019, the organization announced it barred Pitsironis from “associating with any FINRA member firm” in any position. In the ruling, FINRA stated Pitsironis accepted it “without admitting or denying” the accusations.From Sept. 6, 2019, to Feb. 26, 2020, six more clients filed disputes. All indicate the client loaned Pitsironis money, but he either was slow in repaying or did not pay at all. In some cases, funds came from clients’ individual retirement accounts and faced tax penalties without a timely repayment.Those six cases claimed damages totaling nearly $434,000. BrokerCheck says all parties settled the cases for nearly $370,000 combined.

Okada Manila Operator on SPAC Search to Gain Nasdaq or NYSE Listing


Posted on: February 14, 2021, 07:16h. 
Last updated on: February 14, 2021, 07:16h.
Universal Entertainment Group is looking for a US-based special purpose acquisition company (SPAC) to partner with to list the Okada Manila integrated resort business on the Nasdaq or New York Stock Exchange (NYSE).
The Okada Manila integrated resort. The operator is looking for a SPAC partner to list the business in the US. (Image: Forbes)The Japanese company declared its intentions to work with a blank-check entity with an eye toward a listing on a US bourse in a note to investors last week. Universal’s integrated resort operation consists solely of the venue in the Philippine capitol city.The Company has already executed advisory agreements with multiple financial advisory firms in Japan and the US in order to prepare for the listing of its IR Business … and is currently engaged in the selection of a SPAC, the investigation of aspects involving the law and tax systems, the revision of the capital structure of the Company Group as a whole, with the aim of listing the business sometime in fiscal 2021,” according to the investor letter.Universal Entertainment started partial operations at Okada Manila in December 2016, noting that over time, growth is steady. As is the case with gaming properties around the world, the venue was hampered by the coronavirus pandemic, but the Japanese company said it deployed a variety of cost-cutting measures to bolster earnings — many of which are expected to remain permanent.Let SPAC Speculation CommenceAfter 244 blank-check companies raised $78.2 billion via initial public offerings last year, another 134 billion raised $39 billion (as of Feb. 12) to start 2021.In other words, there are hundreds of SPACs currently trading that do not yet have merger partners. That group includes dozens that previously declared intentions to focus on gaming assets. Blank-check companies have two years to strike deals or face forced liquidation in which capital is returned to shareholders.In the investor letter, Universal Entertainment doesn’t reveal the identities of specific SPACs it’s in talks with, but the gaming company makes clear it views this an efficient avenue to list its equity on one of the major US exchanges.“In view of this situation, [and] having positioned its IR Business as the core business of the Company Group, the Company recently arrived at the decision to pursue a detailed examination of the listing of that business on either the US NASDAQ Stock Exchange or the New York Stock Exchange with the aim of realizing the further expansion of that business and greater corporate group value,” according to the letter.SPAC Fever Permeates Gaming Sector…AgainNot even two months into 2021 and there are already there are already multiple blank-check deals notched with gaming companies, including Golden Nugget operator Fertitta Entertainment with FAST Acquisition (NYSE:FST) and Acies Acquisition Corp. (NASDAQ:ACAC) with Playstudios. That follows three gaming firms that went public last December following SPAC mergers.That group doesn’t include some new public entities born out of blank-check transactions that aren’t dedicated gaming companies, but have some or are looking to gain exposure to the industry.As for SPACs without a deal that make for logical partners for Okada Manila, some standout more than others. Universal Entertainment didn’t mention a date when it reveal its partner.
