Is there anything more thrilling than the sight and sound of an overdue slot machine finally paying off? If there is, we don’t know about it. Any jackpot is fun; a massive win on a progressive machine is astounding.

Progressive Jackpot Slots

The first slot machines had a pull handle and three spinning reels with five symbols. In 1986, the first progressive slot machine was introduced by Nevada-based IGT. They named the machine Megabucks and it changed everything in the world of slot machine gaming.

The slots with the biggest jackpots network with other machines like them. Players insert coins, contributing to the ever-increasing progressive jackpot total. All players on the network are going for the same jackpot.

Biggest Progressive Payouts

Progressive slot machines don’t often hit, but when they do, the payout can be life changing.

The biggest online progressive payout occurred when a Finnish gambler won a Mega Fortune game in January of 2013. The 40-year old man was awarded almost 18 million Euros.

A few weeks later, the largest progressive slot machine jackpot in history happened in Las Vegas on March 21, 2013. A visitor from Los Angeles played approximately $100 on a three-coin Megabucks machine at Excalibur casino when he hit the jackpot and won a whopping $39,713,982.25.

Tips for Playing Progressive Slots

If you want to experience the thrill and exhilaration of winning a huge jackpot, play often and play smart. You can also play at real money online casinos. Here are a few tips:

Always play the maximum number of coins. Progressives only pay the big jackpot when the maximum is played.

Use all your credits. Keep playing until your stake is played out.

Play often. Make as many pulls as you can. If you can afford to play several times a week, do it. Every pull has the same odds, but you can’t win at all if you’re not playing.

War of Words Between Spain and UK Puts Damper on Online Gambling Deals

Bet365 is one of the world’s most prominent online gambling organizations. The UK company recently joined several other online gambling companies as part of Spain’s gambling community. Spain is still exploring the world of online gambling, having only recently introduced online slots to its games. Along with Interwetten, 888 and Luckia Games, Bet365 will be one of the few legally sanctioned live roulette opportunities for online players.

With preexisting operations already in Gibraltar, Bet365 did not have to relocate for the deal, which some of its competitors were required to do. Unfortunately, the deal doesn’t get to flow smoothly across the table. Spanish foreign minister José Garcia-Margallo continues to object to any working relationships with Gibraltar after their artificial reef damaged Spanish fishing grounds, which authorities are refusing to remove.

The foreign minister has threatened requiring any Gibraltar-based online gambling companies pay taxes to Madrid and use Spanish-based servers. In addition, since many workers will be commuting Spanish citizens, Garcia-Margallo suggests Spain impose a €50 fee on any and all vehicles crossing the border in either direction as well as blocking air space between the jurisdictions.

Spain - UK

British ambassador to Madrid Giles Paxman issued a formal complaint in response. The UK government also released a statement asking for an explanation for the foreign minister’s stern language. The statement also included a commitment to preserving UK sovereignty over the Gibraltar territory. The war of words only got worse when Gibraltar Chief Minister Fabian Picardo called Spain’s behavior akin to a North Korean reaction.

The debate could have a profound effect on the deals between Spain and gambling entities like Bet365. To complicate matters, this conflict escalated as the gambling companies were looking to legally stop the UK from enforcing a new 15 percent online point-of-consumption gambling tax on their operations. Currently, the tax is only 1 percent.

British gambling giant William Hill Pic goes global

William Hill

The largest betting agency in the world in terms of market value, British giant gambling company William Hill  just got a little bigger with the acquisition of Australian online betting mega-company Tom Waterhouse NT.

William Hill paid A$110 million or about GBP 64 million, and $34 million (U.S.) and acquired the company debt. This makes William Hill the leading online sportingbet Australia site as of August 2013. This increases value for the brand that is an FTSE 100 group that also employs 3,000 people in Yorkshire and nearly 1,300 Leeds workers

William Hill pledged to put money into Ton Waterhouse NT to make the online giant even better for bettors. William Hill will invest up to A$70 million adjusted to earnings on to guarantee annual growth of the company to A$10 million in 2014 and A$30 million in 2015.

Already operating Centrebet in Australia, William Hill’s takeover effort supplements its recent purchase of Sportingbet PLC’s operations in Australia. It paid A$670 to Sportingbet and took over Tabcorp Holdings Ltd. in the land down under. William Hill CEO Ralph Topping said the acquisitions were expanding the company’s customer base rapidly in compatible markets.

Topping said the company was putting in place the top people in sports betting to form one impressive team. Tom Waterhouse and his team represented a valuable addition to the William Hill family, he said.

William Hill makes more than GBP 1.2 billion annually. However, the site is not making money. William Hill leadership was confident its influx of capital and other “substantial synergies” would turn around the /australian giant. Tom Waterhouse will keep his post as managing director and join the William Hill team, officials said.

The international market has assumed front center stage for William Hill, the top betting company in market value in the world. Company officials now term Australia as its “second home market.” The Tom Waerhouse company had been controversial. Waterhouse frequently appeared on Channel Nine as a highly publicized bookmaker. He provided a public face to the making of odds for football games on the tube. However, it later was revealed he paid to be on TV.

The Australian government announced a crackdown n bookies promoting betting odds after those disclosures. Waterhouse said he would get off TV in a public letter printed in The Daily Telegraph.

The Roulette Helps Boost Revenue In Nevada

The state of Nevada, most of it which is desert and very dry, relies heavily on one form of income; gambling. Even the capital, LasVegas, is synonymous to this trade and anyone who will very quickly associate gambling to it. Casinos are a day-to-day form of business all across the state and so are strip clubs. This offers the perfect getaway for any type of a holiday seeker as the state offers a variety of entertainment forms. A trip down the LasVegas any day becomes memorable, as the adventure is endless and the surprises from the liberal and open minded people endless. Thanks to the Roulette, the state has recorded a notable increase in revenue. Between the months of May 2012 and May 2013, the gaming control board stated that Nevada had an improvement in the income. There was a 1.4% increase in the earnings as of the analysts figures. The secret behind this notable increase in revenue, as the analysts discovered is that the strip clubs which also double as casinos have done a lot of marketing to the Latino community all over America who mostly come to gamble and specifically like to deal the roulette. Put against the Blackjack and Baccarat, Roulette topped in earnings and popularity by far. This data, although not shocking but a bit surprising will of course work as an eye opener to the casino owners and managers who will be looking at cashing on this revelation. Although most casinos market to the outsiders and want to attract them to use other services in their resorts, the roulette is most likely to occupy their minds and give them some challenging thoughts on how to make it even more popular to enable them to pocket even more.

Gambling Websites Blacklisted in Greece

Greek Casino

A long list of online gambling websites can no longer be accessed in Greece. In a move that is outraging many Greek online gambling fans, has Greece’s Commission for the Supervision and Control of Games (CSCG) blacklisted 401 websites. Greek Internet service providers will now be expected to bar subscribers from accessing the popular gambling websites. The Bank of Greece has also requested that all financial institutions suspend payments to the blacklisted websites.

Strengthening the OPAP Monopoly

Included in the blacklist are a range of casino, sports betting and poker sites from various European and American online bookmakers. Strengthening its monopoly in the gaming industry, the Greek Organization of Football Prognostics (OPAP) will now be the sole provider of both land-based casinos and online gambling websites in Greece. Websites wishing to offer gambling in the future must receive a license from the Greek government and offer games that do not include a “random number generator”.

History of Corruption in the Gambling Industry

One year ago, the Greek government began to display its blatant corruption in the gaming industry when it struck a controversial deal with Cyprus. At the time, the Mediterranean island nation had banned most forms of gambling. Creating an instant monopoly, Greece and Cyprus reached an agreement that allowed OPAP to operate tax-free land-based casinos. OPAP was also permitted to continue its operation of online sports betting and lottery websites in Cyprus.

Opinion of the European Community

Although both the OPAP monopoly and the website blacklist have been ruled illegal by the Court of Justice of the European Union, the Greek government has continued forward with its restrictions. Owning 34.4 percent of OPAP, it’s not hard to understand why the Greek government is blacklisting the competition. After an earlier restriction on this type of blacklist by the European Commission was lifted, the stage was set for these ridiculous actions by the Greek government to take place.
