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 throug Apuestas Deportivas Apuestas NFL Futbol Americano Online Bingo Rooms Play Bingo online SITRAK C7H Costa Rica h 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.



NEVADA AWARDS MORE ONLINE POKER LICENSES
2013-04-24

Station Casinos and Secure Trading are the latest companies to be awarded Nevada online poker licensing by the Nevada Gaming Commission, the Las Vegas Sun newspaper reported Thursday.

Secure Trading is an industry services supplier involved in payment processing, customer identification and geolocation services, and is a subsidiary of the well-known and pro-online gambling UK company UC Group Limited, which has actively promoted the cause of regulated online gambling for several years.

Station Casinos is a major land gambling group that already holds a Nevada online poker operator licence through its subsidiary Fertitta Interactive (see previous InfoPowa reports) but now has also been given a service provider licence for its Ultimate Gaming company, a sub-group that includes online poker software developer Cyberarts.

Station Casinos representatives received a serious grilling on their proposed use of their own software rather than that of a proven supplier, and gave assurances that every precaution against underage and problem gambling, collusion, fraud and money laundering, had been implemented.

Thomas Breitling of Station Casinos was optimistic about prospects: Some say its a $100 million market, he said, adding that his company had committed millions of dollars to development with online poker specifically in mind.

Tobin Prior, another spokesman for the company, said: It was frustrating to sit on the side-lines watching all this unlicensed and unregulated gambling taking place."

He revealed that the company has 38 full-time employees developing its online poker system in Las Vegas and said that number will rise to 100 in about a year.

A.G. Burnett, chairman of the Nevada Gaming Control Board, said all the systems approved by the Commission thus far are currently being evaluated in the agency laboratory, and that none has received approval to go forward yet.
