Although old classics such as poker and blackjack remain a big draw, slots are arguably the most popular casino game. This is certainly true when you think about the top online slots that people love to try out.

Why are slots so well-loved by gamers though? To begin with, they are very accessible. You will not have to spend long hunting for casinos that offer them – especially online. They also come with awesome graphics and sound. When thinking of slot games that people like to play, the natural urge is to assume that it is the latest, newest examples.

This is not always true though and older games remain among the most played globally. Play’n GO’s Book of Dead is a case in point – this slot is as played now as it was when it first launched.

Why are these games still among the most played though?

Simplicity is king

In business, the KISS acronym describes the merits of keeping things simple. This can be applied to many sectors, and simplicity is certainly one of the major reasons why older slots (such as Book of Dead) are still popular. They tend to have a simpler design and easier-to-grasp gameplay than the latest games. This is appealing to lots of people who might prefer the more traditional reel design of older slots or want something that is quick to pick up.

Familiarity and nostalgia

Older slots still get people coming back for more due to the familiarity they offer. This is especially true if players have been enjoying the same games for years. Many people like the comfort of something they know and not having to learn how a new game works. Of course, retro gaming is a popular trend and many people love the nostalgia hit they get from sticking with older slots.

Fun themes and cool bonuses

Older slot games are among the most played still because they are fun and come in a variety of cool themes. From the vampire-themed thrills of Blood Suckers to the safari-inspired japes of Mega Moolah, there is an older slot to keep everyone entertained. These games also usually pack in lots of cool bonuses and some interesting bonus rounds to enjoy. This helps to keep them engaging to play and also potentially lucrative.

Older slots are still getting much love

Although slot fans will always have one eye on the latest hot game to try, many will also regularly return to older slots. As the above shows, this is not a surprise when you see what these types of games offer. Due to this, casinos such as the brand-new Rapid Casino from PressEnter are sure to include older slots in their catalogs.

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.
