Amaya Gaming Hires Goldstein as Exec VP Added: January 25, 2014

Amaya Gaming is one of the most respected companies in the world of online casino gambling, from the perspective of its ability to design and develop online casino games, mostly through its subsidiary companies. At such a critical juncture for the industry, they're looking ahead to the future with energetic leadership. That is one of the reasons they have tapped Marlon Goldstein as the new executive vice president, with a variety of roles within the operation. The hiring will take effect on January 24, and he will be involved as General Counsel as well. Goldstein had previously been employed by the prestigious law firm of Greenberg Traurig in their gaming division. He was also a principal shareholder in the firm, which was extremely prominent within the gambling world, particularly for its lobbying efforts.

Manitoba's Online Casino Venture Not Doing Expected Business Added: January 17, 2014

The online gambling casinos that have been established and regulated in the province of Manitoba have not brought forth the results that were hoped for. In fact, when you compare what the enterprise has brought in with what the original projections were, it actually looks like an abject failure. When government officials established the Manitoba-licensed Playnow.com, they had projected income of CA $1.5 million for the first year of operations. Well, looking at the figures that have indeed been generated for six-month period ending with this past September, performance well below par has been achieved. In fact, during that six-month period, the casino brought in only CA $300,000. And that brings up quite a bit of concern on the part of those proponents of government-sponsored gambling.

Of course it isn't illegal online gambling; no, it is online gambling as it is allowed in the state of New Jersey.

Canada's Negreanu Named Poker Player of the Decade Added: January 6, 2014

It's always big news when someone from Canada wins a casino-related Accolade, and so we thought you might be interested in the fact that Daniel Negreanu has been named "poker player of the decade" by the respected Global Poker Index. Negreanu, who is a native of Toronto, and has been a regular in the World Series of Poker, winning a gold bracelet at the age of 23. He has since won another one, the first Asia-Pacific main event that was held by the WSOP (which happens this year). All told, he has won over $19 million playing in poker tournaments alone. That would make him one of the most successful poker players ever to compete at the professional level in tournaments.
