EUROPEAN ONLINE TITAN MOVES AHEAD WITH LICENSING IN NEVADA

3 June 2013

By Howard Stutz

LAS VEGAS — European online gaming giant bwin.party digital entertainment plc is moving forward with licensing in Nevada to operate Internet poker websites with MGM Resorts International and Boyd Gaming Corporation, despite comments to the contrary from the company’s chief executive, an attorney said.

Gilbraltar-based Bwin.party is still awaiting approval from state gaming regulators after filing its application more than a year ago.

In interviews with online gaming publications last month, Bwin.party CEO Norbert Teufelberger said the company chose “not to operate in Nevada” and would focus its attention on New Jersey, which enacted Internet gaming laws earlier this year.

Las Vegas gaming attorney Frank Schreck, who represents Bwin.party, said the New Jersey licensing process is being expedited time period by the state. The online company wants to be in the first wave of the application process.

“New Jersey is the focus because there is a definite time table,” Schreck said. “The company is still moving forward in Nevada.”

Teufelberger’s comments were made after Bwin.party announced 2012 earnings had declined 17 percent. The company also educed its profit estimates for 2013.

Teufelberger told media outlets he believes Bwin.party could split New Jersey’s potential online gaming market with Caesars Entertainment Corp., which owns four of the 12 casinos in Atlantic City and is planning to launch a World Series of Poker branded website in New Jersey.

Bwin.party would enter the market through its partnership with Boyd Gaming, the operator and 50 percent owner of the market-leading Borgata.

In April, Boyd Gaming CEO Keith Smith said the Borgata brand would allow the company “to capture a substantial share of this lucrative market.”

Operation of New Jersey’s online gaming websites is limited to the owners of Atlantic City’s casinos. Like Nevada, New Jersey’s gaming regulations only allow wagers to take place on computers and mobile devices located only within New Jersey’s borders.

Because of the state’s proximity to East Coast population centers, such as New York City and Philadelphia, and New Jersey’s population of 8.1 million, analysts speculate the market could be substantial.

Smith said Boyd wanted to be one of the first casinos to launch online gaming in New Jersey. Smith also said Boyd Gaming was “evaluating the opportunity” to offer online poker in Nevada.

In 2011, MGM Resorts, Boyd and Bwin.party announced a partnership to create a Nevada-based online gaming company to offer Internet poker. Bwin.party would own 65 percent of the business, MGM Resorts would have 25 percent and Boyd would have the remaining 10 percent.

“We’re committed to the partnership and we’re evaluating the best way to enter the market,” said MGM Resorts spokesman Gordon Absher.

MGM Resorts and Boyd Gaming have both been licensed by state gaming regulators to operate online poker in Nevada. Officials from both companies said they would not launch a website until Bwin.party was licensed.

“(We) are determining the best way to enter what is shaping up to be a robust yet crowded market,” Smith said in April about Nevada.

State gaming regulators have approved nearly two dozen casino operators and technology providers for interactive gaming licenses. However, just one website, Station Casinos-controled Ultimate Poker, has been approved to operate and launched on April 30.

Bwin.party was formed in 2011 through the merger of Bwin International and Party Gaming, which created the world’s largest online poker company.

PartyGaming operated online poker in the U.S. before the Unlawful Internet Gaming Enforcement Act became law in 2006. The company ceased its U.S. operations on the same day.

Three years later, PartyGaming signed a settlement with the U.S. Department of Justice and paid a $105 million fine. The company was cleared from ever being prosecuted for its pre-2006 online gaming operations.

According to an article on CalvinAyre.com, Teufelberger said the Nevada licensing application “was intended to benefit from federal online poker laws.”

Rett syndrome, originally termed as cerebroatrophic hyperammonemia,[1] is a neurodevelopmental disorder of the grey matter of the brain[2] that almost exclusively affects females but has also been found in male patients. The clinical features include small hands and feet and a deceleration of the rate of head growth (including microcephaly in some). Repetitive stereotyped hand movements, such as wringing and/or repeatedly putting hands into the mouth, are also noted.[3] People with Rett syndrome are prone to gastrointestinal disorders and up to 80% have seizures.[4] They typically have no verbal skills, and about 50% of individuals affected are not ambulatoryScoliosis, growth failure, and constipation are very common and can be problematic.

The signs of this disorder are most easily confused with those of Angelman syndromecerebral palsy and autism.

In DSM-IV-TR Rett’s disorder is listed under the broad category of pervasive developmental disorders, together with the autism spectrum disorders and childhood disintegrative disorder. Some argue that it is misclassified in this group, as it is similar to non-autistic spectrum disorders such as fragile X syndrometuberous sclerosis, or Down syndrome where one can see autistic features.[5] Its removal from DSM-5 has been proposed because it has a specific etiology.[6]

It was first described by Austrian pediatrician Andreas Rett in 1966.[7] Huda Zoghbi demonstrated that Rett syndrome is caused by mutations in the gene MECP2 in 1999.[citation needed]

AGA CEO FRANK FAHRENKOPF EXPECTS FEDERAL POKER BILL TO BE REVIVED

21 February 2013
By Chris Sieroty

LAS VEGAS — Frank Fahrenkopf, who will step down in June after 18 years as president and CEO of the American Gaming Association (AGA), said Wednesday he believes a comprehensive federal bill legalizing online poker will be brought back to Capitol Hill this year.

Fahrenkopf expects Rep. Joe Barton, R-Texas, to reintroduce an Internet poker-only bill in the House. Barton has tried before but failed to garner enough support in the House to pass an online poker bill.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., and former Sen. Jon Kyl, R-Ariz., were working on a bill last year, but it never materialized, much to the disappointment of Fahrenkopf and other gaming industry leaders.

“I wouldn’t be surprised if a new bill was introduced in this session,” Fahrenkopf told gaming regulators and executives during a question-and-answer session at the 2013 iGaming North America Conference at Planet Hollywood Resorts.

He said the association was “still hopeful something will get done,” but with Kyl’s retirement they are working to “find a conservative Republican from a nongaming state” to support a federal bill legalizing online poker.

When asked by Sue Schneider, founder of eGamingBrokerage.com, why the U.S. has lagged in online gaming, Fahrenkopf responded, “Puritanism.”

He said some far-right Republicans, who normally want government out of peoples’ lives, opposes any gaming for religious reasons. He said some on the far left believe people aren’t smart enough to make decisions for themselves and need government to be involved.

“It’s a strange marriage between left and right,” Fahrenkopf said.

Fahrenkopf, 73, has led the Washington-based gaming industry lobbying group since it was formed in 1995. His resignation takes effect June 30.

Despite efforts by Nevada, Delaware and New Jersey to legalize online gaming, Fahrenkopf believes a federal bill would be the best option for casinos, operators and technology companies.

He said online gaming companies had to establish consumer protections to protect the integrity of the game, implement to prevent underage gambling, and implement programs to help the 1 percent of the population that can’t gamble responsibly.

Fahrenkopf, a Reno native and former chairman of the Republican National Committee, warned that state compacts brokered to create liquidity for online states – that is, add enough players to make the venture profitable – would force Congress to block the partnerships.

“When you are talking about wagering, I wouldn’t be surprised if Congress holds hearings,” Fahrenkopf said.

He said federal approval for state deals in other industries has not been needed in recent years. But those deals didn’t involve real-money online gaming, he said.

In taped remarks to iGaming North America attendees, Republican Gov. Brian Sandoval noted that Nevada was first state to implement online poker regulations.

Sandoval said his administration would continue to push for interstate online gaming compacts. He said he expected lawmakers to pass a bill in 30 days that removes the final restrictions preventing online gambling’s full arrival.

“It’s important to pass this legislation,” the governor said.

New Jersey and Delaware are proceeding with efforts to legalize online gaming.

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie said Tuesday he would sign an Internet gaming bill if lawmakers make the changes he wants to the legislation. Christie wants a 10-year trial period on Internet gambling and higher taxes on the casinos’ online winnings.

In Delaware, Lottery officials issued requests for proposals seeking bids from vendors to operate the state’s centralized online gaming system with the strict stipulation that it would be up and running by Sept. 30.
