GOOD NEWS FOR INDEPENDENT DEVELOPERS
2013-12-19

Independent app and game developers, and perhaps aspirant operators too, are set to get a new opportunity to secure funding through GamCrowd, a crowd-funding website that is almost ready for launch and will help up-and-coming online and mobile gambling entrepreneurs to get started.

The venture has several big-bucks investors behind it already and will help to bring together people with money and those with ideas and capability in an environment where traditional lending resources like banks are harder to access and secure.

Founder Chris North founded the Fox Poker Club in 2010, an enterprise that he sold to the Genting group two years later and which has since been shuttered by the Malaysian company.

North says he was motivated on GamCrowd by his own experiences in raising cash:

The last start up I did struggled to register any interest from venture capital firms and so I went back to my own crowd, North recalls. I didnt know it was called crowdfunding at the time, but that is exactly what we did and it was a spectacular success.

North plans to get GamCrowd off the ground early in the New Year.

Once we have a sufficient base of investors, start-ups and a crowd, we will begin putting people in touch with each other internationally and allow investments to happen, he said Thursday.

The operation will be registered with the UK's Financial Conduct Authority.




REVOLUTION VS. LOCK POKER LATEST (Update)
2013-11-12

In an increasingly bitter dispute following its departure from the Revolution Poker Network (see previous InfoPowa reports), Lock Apuestas Deportivas Apuestas NFL Futbol Americano Online Bingo Rooms Play Bingo online SITRAK C7H Costa Rica 1989 Suzuki GS500E Modificada Poker has reportedly filed three complaints with the Curacao Licensing Authority against Revolution owners IAA Services Ltd.

Reporting on the complaints, the information site Gambling911 reveals that Lock Poker is now operating on a stand-alone basis, using software from the now closed Partouche Poker Network, and that it has allied with former Partouche skin MyPok.fr.
Lock is querying the legitimacy of the licensing of a Revolution skin which it claims attempted to commandeer its players during the acrimonious departure from the network.
Lock also questions the Revolution software, which it claims is "...a violation of the terms of a License and Settlement Agreement that was entered into with 1st Technology Ltd. in relation to certain patents held by 1st Technology."
1st Technology and its CEO, Dr. Scott Lewis, was involved in patent actions some years ago regarding online gambling, threatening several major industry companies, with especially acrimonious litigation against the Bodog group (see previous InfoPowa reports). Playtech was among those which decided to licence with 1st Technology rather than tangle with the company.
A third Lock complaint involves alleged irregularities in the distribution of funds held in trust, and accusations that "...Lock [Poker] was provided with contradictory and conflicting information by the Revolution Network operator.
Revolution had earlier claimed that Lock had not made payments due, and threatened to ...pursue Lock to the full extent possible by law to recover all monies owed and damages caused.
Lock Poker responded by claiming it had already paid $8 million to Revolution, Gambling911 reports.
Revolution will now have an opportunity to respond to Lock's formal complaints to its licensing jurisdiction; it is clear that this dispute has a way to run yet.
