Mobile Devices To Drive Online Gambling In New Jersey

Mobile Devices To Drive Online Gambling In New Jersey
Mobile Devices To Drive Online Gambling In New Jersey Published: February 19, 2014 Of the three American states that have legalized online gambling, New Jersey is showing greatest promise. The Associated Press news agency interviewed online gambling analysts and casino executives earlier this week and the consensus was that future growths would be obtained through mobile devices. New Jersey has reported online gambling revenues of $9.5 million for January, which represents an increase of 28% over December. Since online gambling went live in mid November, this was the first complete month to month comparison available. Land casino revenues continued to decline in New Jersey. The revenue for January 2014 was $186.3 million, which was lower by 9.2% as compared to January 2013. Borgata casino executive Joe Lupo said that this increase was without factoring in the vast potential of mobile gambling, which is starting to happen in New Jersey. The Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa had just launched its gambling services over Android cell phones on 3G and 4G networks and mobile devices using WiFi connections. Another online gambling license holder, the Golden Nugget Atlantic City, is scheduled to launch online and mobile services next month. Thomas Winter, the head of e-gaming at the Golden Nugget, estimated that smartphones and tablet devices will account for more than 20% of the casino’s online gambling revenue in 2014 and more than 50% within three years. Caesars Interactive has been running a mobile app for its World Series of Poker brand since December 2013 at two of its four Atlantic City casinos, and hopes to get approval of similar apps for its CaesarsCasino.com and HarrahsCasino.com sites. Seth Palansky, a spokesman for Caesars Interactive, told Associated Press that 22% of the volume on the WSOP site comes from mobile devices. He added, “With tablet growth increasing and smartphone adoption continuing to reach more and more, it is clear the future of the majority of gaming experiences will be on these devices.” Lisa Spengler, a spokeswoman for the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement, also spoke to the Associated Press. She explained that New Jersey regulations allowed the use of those cell phones for online wagering that had a WiFi connection so as to meet the geo-location requirements. She added that geo-location technology providers were working on a project to allow cell phones without WiFi connections to meet certain technical standards. Spengler revealed that the Taj Mahal and its Ultimate casino partner and the Tropicana and its Gamesys partner were approved for mobile gambling.

Slot Myths

Slot Myths
Slot Myths Winning at slot machines is dependent on luck, and this is why rumors on how to win are prevalent among slot machine players. These rumors only represent a false hope in a situation where there is nothing anyone can do. Slot machine myths are what sprung from these rumors, usually referring to tactics or false facts on odds and winning. Hence, here are some slot machine myths that we are to expose. Slot Machine Myth 1: If the player right before you has just won the jackpot, then forget about playing that same machine. This slot machine myth is probably one of the most universally-believed myths. People believe that once the machine has given away the jackpot, it will not give away again any sooner. However, this is belief is false. Your chances of winning are measure by odds, and these odds or probabilities are constant in a machine. Theoretically, there is really this possibility that a slot machine can give away its prizes consecutively. You can only forget about playing a particular slot machine if the machine is a progressive one and you are not interested in winning the lower, default prize. Slot Machine Myth 2: Placing hot coins in the machine would increase your odds. This slot machine myth is probably one of the most ridiculous myths. First, slot machines cannot detect temperature, nor will it cause any changes in the odds of the machines. The probability inside a machine is electronically programmed and is constant through time. Changing or increasing your chances of winning would require a reprogram of the slot’s computer chip. Slot Machine Myth 3: You almost won during a previous spin, so you will win at the next attempt. The outcome of the past has no effect with the outcome of the future. As what was said, you cannot assume that your chances have or will increase. This slot machine myth is indeed a myth because, aside from the past having no effect on the future, the chances are equal even in “almost” situations. Slot Machine Myth 4: You will get paid lesser than the usual payout percentage if you use your slot club card. This slot machine myth is based on the assumption that slot club cards consume casino comps, so casinos would want their money back by deducting more from your winnings. However, payback percentages, like probabilities, are stored in computer chips and are not easy to alter. Aside from that, in order to change payback percentages, casino operators would have to reprogram the chips and file a lot of paperwork to the authorities. So you can just imagine the trouble it will take to just “get their money back” from your bestowed comps. Each of these slot machine myths possesses an illogical attribute that should not be believed. Therefore, before making any decisions, take time to study how slot machine works, and remember that there is not surefire way to guarantee your winnings.
