BettingGods.com Spring Festival

The inaugural BettingGods.com Spring Festival took place on Tuesday 23 May at Nottingham Racecourse and, as hopefully a good time was had by all, we thought we’d take a look back at the day’s horse racing action.

Personal thanks are passed to all members who attended, industry friends, tipsters who attended and especially everyone from Nottingham Racecourse who was involved in making this an amazing, successful day for all involved.

Special guests included Peter Philipson of BettingRant, Dan Flanagan of Honest Betting Reviews, Conall McCable of SBCNews, Adrian White of SiGMA and Karl Dukes of Media Hut.

2.00 The BettingGods.com Quentin Franks Racing EBF Novice Stakes
It was no surprise that the Richard Fahey trained newcomer Panophobia was sent-off favourite, but he and fellow newcomers Master Grey and Macho Guest ran very green throughout the race, whilst the once raced Global Exceed and Zain Flash failed to build on their initial runs. That wasn’t the case for Green Power though who, despite finishing last but one on his debut, stepped-up to land a late gamble as he held on from another horse that was well-backed late on, Raydiance. The two pulled 9-lengths clear of the third.

The winning prize was presented by Betting Gods Ltd founder and director, Darren Moore.

2.30 The BettingGods.com Master Racing Tipster Handicap
Father McKenzie was punted into 3/1 having been available at double those odds in the early-price markets, whilst the steady early gamble on Seaview also rewarded each-way money as they respectively finished third and second. However, both of them succumbed to a powerful finish by the unexposed Fantasy Keeper who, despite there being little money around for him, made it back-to-back wins in the race for trainer Mick Appleby.

The organizers were delighted to see their special guest, Dan Flanagan of Honest Betting Reviews present the winning prize.

3.00 The BettingGods.com Value Racing Tips Handicap
Favourite Coeur de Lion had an obvious chance returning to the flat having had a productive winter over hurdles. Many people’s idea of the banker of the meeting, he duly landed odds of even-money as he sauntered to an easy 3-length win from stablemate McCools gold, giving great satisfaction to Rob of Value Racing Tips who had not only tipped and backed the selection but also awarded it Best Turned Out before the race too.

3.30 The BettingGods.com Sports Guru British EBF Fillies’ Handicap
The betting-market was all over the place throughout the day but an early gamble on Harebell, that had seen her cut to 4/1 was landed, despite the fact she drifted back out to 7/1 on course after a sustained gamble on the eventually unplaced favourite Marilyn.

The winning prize was presented by Anthony of The Sports Guru and The Football Guru.

4.00 The BettingGods.com Free Racing Tips British EBF Maiden Stakes
The off-course and on-course markets were again polarized as Sporting Times was very popular in the early markets, but was uneasy on course before finishing fourth. Meanwhile, Stararchitecture drifted out to 8/1 in the morning, but was backed into 9/2 to land some each-way money in third. There was also plenty of on-course money for the runner-up Maratha, however it was an easy win for 9/1 chance Envoy in the end, who had obviously improved for being gelded since finishing out of the frame on his first two starts.

4.30 The BettingGods.com Big Race Bookie Busters Classified Stakes
There was little confidence behind favourite Al Nafoorah after several Ed Dunlop trained runners had already run below expectations earlier in the afternoon. However, there was also little confidence behind anything else, although Musikel landed each-way support from 12/1 into 8/1, and those two filled the places behind Dragon’s Voice who was making his turf debut after three unsuccessful runs on the all-weather.

The winning prize was presented by Mike of Premier Greyhound Tips and Boxing Betting Tipster.

5.00 The BettingGods.com Free Betting Tips Handicap
The last race was a long time to wait for the Betting Gods nap-of-the-day, but at least it obliged at odds of 2/1 having been recommended at 5/2 earlier in the day. It was a case of only just though as he got up to win by a neck from Borough Boy, to make it 3 wins from 3 visits to Nottingham for inform trainer Robert Cowell.

Best turned our was judged by our guest, Jamie Lakin. The winning prize was presented by Julie Moore, a member of the Betting Gods support team.

Current Situation on US Gambling Law

Published

on

 

According to the American Gaming Association, the United States gambling industry is worth some $240 billion. That’s more than double the value of the entire US film industry.

However, despite its size and popularity, it’s still illegal to bet on sports in almost all 50 states. Only three states — Nevada, Delaware, and Montana — are legalizing sports betting. New Jersey is allowing bets on single games through a court ruling.

In this article, we will look at what you can expect if you want to wager on your favorite sport in different states.

Ohio

In terms of legal gambling in Ohio, the state has an extensive history with horse racing and casinos. There are currently five racetracks in the state which offer various betting options. The most popular form of wager is pari-mutuel betting, where you can bet on certain horses or the race. You can also place wagers on greyhound races at one of the tracks in Ohio.

The most popular form of casino gambling in Ohio is slot machines available at riverboat casinos across the state and at three racetracks that offer slot machines. Several Native American casinos operate within the state’s borders.

Maryland

The state of Maryland is one of the most regulated states in the U.S. Therefore, it is no surprise that there are stringent laws regarding gambling. Maryland has some of the most restrictive laws regarding gambling in the country.

The state has a long history of gambling, and it is still considered one of the top gambling destinations in the entire country. Moreover, the state continues working hard to develop its casino industry. This is by creating new legislation on how casinos can operate and what types of games they can offer their customers.

Maryland has many types of laws that deal with all aspects of gambling. This includes licensing requirements, taxation rules, and other regulations. These affect every aspect of online gambling.

Arizona

The state of Arizona is one of the few states that does not have any laws against gambling. However, there are some exceptions to this rule. The state does have laws against certain types of games, including bingo and raffles. Bingo is like any game in which cards are sold by chance. This is at a price greater than the cost of the card.

In other words, if you buy a $1 card and win $50, you can be arrested for running an illegal bingo game. Raffles are also illegal in Arizona if they are conducted by someone not registered with the state to do so.

The exception to this law is that if you are running a non-profit organization like a church or community group, you can conduct raffles without being registered with the state first.

Final Takeaway

The state of online gambling in the US continues to ramble on. However, different states are making significant strides to legalize it for US gambling sites. The current situation is that the gambling laws vary from state to state.

Largest Dutch poker affiliate complies with regulatory changes post introduction of new Dutch gambling law

Largest Dutch poker affiliate complies with regulatory changes post introduction of new Dutch gambling law

 

PokerKamers.nl, one of the Netherlands’ first and largest poker affiliate sites, introduced a new policy that fully complies with the regulatory changes that came in effect after the Dutch Gambling Authority (Kansspelautoriteit/ KSA) introduced its set of rules for operators to offer legal poker in the Netherlands.

As of October 2021, PokerKamers.nl, a Dutch spoken website existing since 2006, launched its new website. The founders introduced a policy to comply with new regulations, after the new Dutch gambling law took effect on October 1st of 2021.

“Being fully compliant meant saying farewell to online poker sites that did not receive a license to legally operate in the Netherlands; this includes renowned sites like partypoker and bwin, as parent company Entain’s initial application got rejected,” said PokerKamers.nl founder Joris Koningsberg.

Entain plc, one of the world’s largest gambling/ gaming, poker, and betting operators, did not receive a license to offer their brands in the Netherlands, including their online poker sites, because they continued to accept Dutch customers after the market closed due to the Dutch Remote Gambling Act (Kansspel op Afstand/ KOA) on April 1st of 2021.

“It was an easy decision, because the only other option was working with illegal poker sites. And besides, one of our favorite partners (ed: Hillside plc’s bet365) did receive their license,” said Joris Koningsberg.

Meanwhile, all Entain brands now comply to the Dutch Gambling Authority’s cooling off period and the company is expected to obtain a license in the first half of 2022.

With the decision to be fully compliant to Dutch law and regulations, PokerKamers.nl also improved the overall quality of its website. A new look and feel, a comprehensive audit of all existing pages and many new, were completed before the launch of their new website.

“And there is more,” said PokerKamers.nl co-owner Oscar Oosterling, “We have added a poker course, several tools including a tournament filter and the M-Calculator, and poker cheat sheets. And our to-do list is only getting bigger.”

PokerKamers.nl is a website to keep on your radar the next few months. New gambling licenses will be issued, and this website will only list the very best of them. You can expect continuous updates and new features that improve the overall quality and user experience. And with PokerKamers.nl being a compliant poker affiliate, you can rest assured that you’re not going to be misled into signing up with shady – or illegal poker sites.
