As you already know, the status of legalized online gambling in the United States has been a hit and miss affair for some years now. On one hand there are the strong proponents of online casinos and online gambling of most every form such as Governor Chris Cristie of New Jersey. On the other side of the table are the opponents of anything to do with the expansion of online gambling such as the land based casino magnate Sheldon Adelson.
Perhaps what is needed is a new approach, a fresh look at the whole issue. Then it might even possible to bring these opposing viewpoints to the same table to iron out some sort of plan that works for everyone. Luckily there is one forward thinking lawmaker who is willing to take the first step.
This legislator turns out to be Representative Joe Barton (R- Texas). According to Barton, he is about to introduce new legislation that could turn out to be the first legislation to address online gambling at the federal level. Note that Barton’s planned pro online gambling Bill will in fact be in direct opposition to a Bill just introduced by Jason Chaffetz of Utah. Chaffetz recently reintroduced his version of the infamous Restoration Of America’s Wire Act (RAWA), the bill in large part supported (funded?) by none other than Sheldon Adelson.
Now it should be noted that the Bill being prepared by Representative Barton can be seen as a sort of baby step approach ...

The void between what the people (the online casino players, that is) want and what they get. Naturally online casino fans are on a seemingly never ending quest to find the best online casino experience available. In far too many cases, the online casino player leaves disappointed. Although the online casino site looked promising at first glance, the actual online gaming experience was only mediocre at best. In other words, there is this void out there that is just begging for some innovative online casino to step up and fill in this void.
With that in mind, perhaps there is a relatively new online casino you might want to take the time to stop by and check out for yourself. The name of this online casino is Win Palace. Although Win Palace has in fact only been around since late 2009, this online casino is doing everything it can to fill the void discussed above.
Consider the online gambling software behind the online casino games at Win Palace. As you probably know, the work of the online gambling software development company can make or break any new online gambling operator. In this case, Win Palace took no chances. Win Palace deliberately chose Real Time Gaming (RTG) as their software development work. As you probably already know, RRG provides top notch online gambling software for some of the best online casinos in the world.
The first thing you will notice when you traipse over to Win Palace Casino is the generous ...

It goes without saying that nobody wants to be hit with yet another tax or fee by the government. It really does not even matter what sort of story the local politician attempts to paint for his constituents, the reality is that most everyone despises even the thought more taxes. But the will of the people be damned is what the governor of Pennsylvania seems to be saying to his residents. Sure he has come out on record that a tax increase is desperately needed to plug a hole in the state budget.
Yeah, okay whatever. But instead of trying to spread the pain of a budget deficit with more taxes on state residents how about looking for other ways to bring in revenue? One such way of adding to the state coffers is of course by bringing online casino dollars.
It turns out that at least one politician in Pennsylvania is willing to think outside the box. In this case, it is State Representative John Payne. For the record, Representative Payne is the chairman of the State House Gaming Oversight Committee. From that position, Payne can speak more authoritatively on the subject than many of his colleagues in the State House of Representatives.
Per Representative Payne, the state of Pennsylvania could begin taking in around $120Million in online casino revenue. Payne goes on to make the case that this revenue projection is actually extremely conservative. Translation: the state could and should expect even more revenue dollars to start piling ...

Seriously, think about it for even a little bit and you may find yourself scratching your head and wondering why not? Why not, indeed? Oddly enough, you don’t have to look very far in traditional and even online retail markets to find some sort of cash back promotions.

Yet that may be about to change. At least if Gambling Deals has anything to say about the matter. Spotting an opportunity that is just waiting for someone to notice and grab ahold of, the founder of Gambling Deals is working to do just that. Bring cash rewards programs to the online casino industry, that is.
