Boardwalk Empire: International Bonus - Atlantic City Roaring 1920s: Crime, Gambling, Prostitutes, The Works..., by Greg Tingle - 14th March 2011

Enter Atlantic City in the 1920s when prohibition was introduced and alcohol became illegal, everybody partied big time. Dancing, champagne, beer, the best food. County Treasurer, Enoch “Nucky” Thompson (Steve Buscemi) was living large. Nucky was a real life character in Atlantic City who rose to power as one of the city’s leaders who became a racketeer running bootlegging, gambling and prostitution. HBO’s new drama series is a fictionalised version inspired by actual events in a book by writer Nelson Johnson. It’s a backdrop to themes of corruption, vice and larger-than-life characters. Buscemi has the lead TV role. Screenplay is by Sopranos writer Terence Winter. It has Martin Scorsese directing its first episode. Mark Wahlberg is also a producer. Nucky is a complex man. To the masses and media he condemns alcohol to the Women’s Temperance League while secretly commandeering backroom deals of booze smuggled and sold at inflated prices, all going strong under the federal law of Prohibition. He was the king in Atlantic City’s own underbelly, acquiring wealth via organised crime. Buscemi nailed this role, even snatching a Golden Globe for his efforts. The other key characters in the opening episode include Jimmy Darmody (Michael Pitt) Nucky’s former protégé, who is tempted to work for the Feds, and Margaret Schroeder (Kelly Macdonald) a wife who is beaten by her husband and turns to Nucky for help. In a city of liars, cheats and fornicators, she serves as the symbol of virtue. The production values of Boardwalk Empire are awesome. The Art Direction, Costume and Cinematography are outstanding. There are lavish sets and the attention to detail is world class. Scorsese’s use of period music hits the right tone. There’s nothing quite like hearing a 20's ditty warbling on an old gramophone while an unlucky person gets whacked. Boardwalk Empire premieres 8:30pm Sunday March 27th on Australian pay television via Showtime. If you have pay TV, you owe it to yourself to tune in. Yes, most critics think its better than 'Underbelly' also, but you be the judge, jury and executioner.

Legalized Sports Betting Key to Atlantic City Success - April 2010

ATLANTIC CITY -- Senator Jeff Van Drew testified before the Senate Economic Growth Committee on legislation he sponsored to permit legalized sports wagering in New Jersey, calling it vital to Atlantic City's economic success.

"Legalized sports betting is key to Atlantic City maintaining its competitive edge and to ensuring future economic success of the resort city," Senator Van Drew, D-Cape May, Atlantic and Cumberland, said following the committee's public hearing at the Atlantic City Convention Center. "By approving a constitutional amendment, New Jersey residents can send a strong, unified message in favor of reversing the federal ban on sports wagering, a move that would place us on a level playing field with other gaming states."

The bill, SCR-49, would ask voters to approve a constitutional amendment to legalize sports wagering at New Jersey's casinos and horse-racing tracks. It would permit wagers to be placed on professional, college, or amateur sports or athletic events, either in-person of from any other location using telephone, Internet or other means. The measure would prohibit wagering on any college games in which a New Jersey college team participates.

The constitutional amendment would be predicated on the reversal of the Federal Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act of 1992 (PASPA), a law which prohibits sports wagering in all but four states. Van Drew, along with Senator Raymond Lesniak, D-Union, also a bill sponsor, have said that it would strengthen the legal case brought against the federal government last year seeking to overturn PASPA as unconstitutional.

"It makes no sense for New Jersey, home to one of the nation's top gaming destinations, to be locked out of this sector of the industry while other states turn a profit and use it to fund important programs for their residents," said Senator Van Drew. "Especially in this tough economy, when the state is facing deep budget cuts, New Jersey should be doing all it can to tap into this market."

"Sports betting is already taking place in back rooms and through a host of other illegal channels across New Jersey, and profits are being used to fund criminal activity, such as organized crime, prostitution, and the illegal drug and arms trade," added Senator Van Drew. "It's time to bring this practice out of the shadows and into the light of day so that the profits can be used for good."

The bill was recently approved by the Economic Growth Committee by a vote of 4-0, with one abstention. Today's public hearing was required by law to give the public another chance to testify on the bill. It now heads to the full Senate for consideration.

.....Senator Raymond Lesniak issued the following statement during yesterday's hearing:

"When Manchester United plays Chelsea at Wembley Stadium, London, in the Premier League, the second most successful sports league in the world, fans can place a bet on either team right at the stadium. When the San Francisco 49ers take on the Denver Broncos at Wembley Stadium on Sunday October 31st of this year, the fans will not be able to place a bet at the stadium, because the National Football League, to protect the integrity of its sport, will not allow the betting windows to open. The fans will have to walk across the street to place their bets. The Broncos will no doubt be favored by a touchdown.

"Insane? You bet it is. Just as insane as the federal ban on sports betting which forces the public to bet illegally with bookies or at off shore internet sites, out of the reach of our law enforcement agencies, or legally at the safe haven created by Congress in Nevada and Delaware. ? ?

"Tonight is the NCAA basketball championship game. Try to get a room in Las Vegas this past weekend. Good luck. You better have made your reservation months ago. Here in Atlantic City, you can have your pick of rooms at any casino, except Revel which, thanks to opposition from those who don't care about the thousands of unemployed men and women in the area, may now never open.? ?

"Las Vegas Sports Consultants (LVSC), a division of Cantor Gaming, estimates that New Jersey could see a $10 billion market for sports betting. That would produce $600 mil of revenue for our casinos and our racetracks and $60 mil in direct revenue to the state and much more for our casinos, our racetracks and our state from the added tourism as a result of legal sports betting.? ?

"Some say the discrimatory federal ban on sports betting will never be lifted, but not NBA Commissioner David Stern who has acknowledged it will at some time in the future, and not Senators Jim Whelan and Jeff Van Drew who know that sports betting will create jobs and boost tourism. These two Senators will use every means possible to fight for those jobs and for our economic growth.? ?

"Legislators from Missouri, Iowa and Rhode Island have introduced Resolutions or Legislation supporting sports betting. And my lawsuit to overturn the ban will be heard this fall in the United States District Court. When either of these efforts are successful, if Congress comes to its senses and stops the discrimination against New Jersey and other states, or if the Federal Courts recognize that the discriminatory ban on sports betting violates the United States Constitution, New Jersey has to be ready to get it going immediately.? ?

"Right now, we are not ready. We have to amend our Constitution to allow sports betting at an election in November. If would be a shame if when the inevitable occurs, our surrounding states would be able to siphon off tourists who want to enjoy the entertainment that goes with placing a bet on their favorite team, just as Las Vegas, and Delaware to a lesser extent, are now doing.? ?

"Today's public hearing will allow the State Senate and Assembly to place a question on November's ballot to permit sports betting. We need it. We deserve it. And some day we will have it. SCR 49 will insure we will have it sooner, rather than later."

Party Casino to Get Cryptologic Online Casino Games
23rd October 2008

The online gaming software provider Cryptologic and the online casino PartyCasino have entered into a five-year licensing agreement through which Cryptologic will offer some of its best branded games to PartyGaming.

In the arrangement worked out six Cryptologic online slots games will be available on the PartyCasino site in early 2009. The agreement provides for adding more games at subsequent dates. The agreement was entered through WagerLogic, a subsidiary of Cryptologic that licenses and services Cryptologic software, and PartyGaming the parent operator of the “Party” brand of gambling portals such as PartyCasino, PartyPoker and PartyBets.

The six online casino games chosen by PartyCasino cover four brands with which Cryptologic has partnership arrangements. Three of the games are from the Marvel brand in which Cryptologic has tied up with Marvel Comics to produce online slots games based on the latter’s super heroes. These three games are The Fantastic Four, Hulk, and Spider-Man, all of which are extremely popular with online slots players.

The other three games are Bejeweled, Cubis, and Street Fighter that have their separate branding agreements. Bejeweled and Cubis are from the Casual Game series of Cryptologic, whereas Street Fighter has an action-based theme like the Marvel slots.

Brian Hadfield, President and Chief Executive Officer for CryptoLogic, called this agreement as “one of Cryptologic’s biggest customer wins of the year”. He also added that this agreement vindicated Cryptologic’s strategy of developing branded games. This is indeed true because PartyCasino is Cryptologic’s ninth new customer this year. The others involve big names like 888.com, Sky Betting, Gaming Media Group and Maharajah Club.

PartyCasino, like 888.com, currently operates using proprietary software and will integrate the new Cryptologic games into its system.

Jim Ryan, Chief Executive Officer for PartyGaming, was equally ecstatic at the alliance of “two of the biggest names in Internet gaming”.

This agreement is in consonance with PartyGaming’s strategy to broaden its product base through innovative alliances. PartyGaming has tied up with StudioCanal for the development of online slot games based on Hollywood movies like The Terminator and Rambo. Other movie-based fare offered at PartyCasino includes Mission: Impossible, The Godfather and Saturday Night Fever.

 

CryptoLogic Partners With Betfair

27th April 2009

Leading online casino software developer CryptoLogic Limited has signed a multi-year agreement that will see it provide a minimum of ten of its most popular slot titles to Betfair, one of the world’s largest virtual betting communities.

The deal covers both branded and non-branded Cryptologicslot titles with the first batch of five due to be delivered for Betfair’s two million customers before the end of the second quarter of this year.

Dublin-based CryptoLogic stated that the remaining games would follow in the third and fourth quarters of 2009 and be made available to Betfair through Orbis Technology’s Fixed Odds Games platform. Cryptologic signed a deal with Orbis in December as part of a strategy of expanding its channels into the Internet gaming market.

“CryptoLogic’s new relationship with Betfair is excellent proof of the potential of our ‘build once, license often’ business strategy,” said Brian Hadfield, President and Chief Executive Officer for CryptoLogic.

“CryptoLogic’s branded slot games are both popular and profitable and, today, that leads yet another top global gaming brand to join CryptoLogic’s growing list of customers.”

Since pioneering the first successful online betting exchange in 2000, Betfair has grown to process more than six million transactions a day and enables customers to choose their own odds and bet even after an event has started. The company’s portfolio includes casino and exchange games alongside poker and it is also highly accomplished in signature platform development and exchange technology having launched three applications, Betfair Poker, Tradefair and Betfair Predicts.

“Betfair is excited to make CryptoLogic’s casino games available to our two million registered customers,” said Albert Tapper, Head Of Arcade And Exchange Games for Betfair.

“Betfair is all about offering customers unprecedented choice, value and control and CryptoLogic’s market-leading slot games will add to that experience.”

Betfair revealed that the ten new titles would sit alongside the 75 already in its BetfairArcade.com site. This Malta-licensed site pays out over seven million pounds each week in winnings and was developed in partnership with Orbis.

“This deal strengthens CryptoLogic’s leadership in slot games and illustrates why we’re the partner of choice for so many of the world’s largest gaming operators,” said Justin Thouin, Vice-President for CryptoLogic.
