Ny spellagstiftning i antågande

Wednesday, July 18th, 2018

Ny spellag gör det lättare att spela. Under en lång tid har Svenska Spel haft monopol på spel i Sverige men nu ser det ut att bli ändring på detta.

Människor som har velat spela på lotter eller casino i Sverige har hittills behövt vända sig till Svenska Spel för att få stilla sitt spelbegär. Med en ny spellagstiftning skulle dock detta förändras. Med denna skulle nya svenska casinon kunna skapas av nästan vem som helst.

Vad skulle den nya lagstiftningen förändra?

En ny spellag skulle göra det lättare för företag att kunna starta upp platsbaserade casinon och online varianter av sådana. En ny spellagstiftning skulle kunna skapa en säkrare spelmiljö, framför allt online, då många kritiserade casinon skulle försvinna. Många spelare ser det dessutom som mer pålitligt att kunna sköta sina casinoinbetalningar till ett svenskt casino och till en svensk bank.

 

 “Bonusar ska bara vara tillåtet vid första insättningstillfället, sedan ska det vara förbjudet. Vi inför en kraftig restriktion”, säger Ardalan Shekarabi enligt en artikel i Expressen.

Om man i dag drabbas av ett spelberoende kan det vara svårt att sluta spela. Många online casinon finns och även om man spärrar sig själv på ett av dessa kan man lätt registrera sig på ett annat. En annan spellagstiftning skulle kunna åtgärda detta menar den svenska regeringen och [dessutom införs en panikknapp:]. Detta skulle leda till att en spelare med bara ett enda knapptryck kan förhindra att registrering sker på fler casinon och därmed skulle spelmissbruket troligen stoppas innan ekonomin hinner gå allt för långt i botten för den enskilde spelaren. I dagsläget är spelmissbruk ett mycket stort problem och många drabbas.

Spela poker på båt i sommar

Wednesday, August 5th, 2015

I detta inlägg tar vi och dyker ner i den stora pokertävlingen som spelas via båtar i Dalarna, och på olika spelstopp. Tävlingen eller eventet har vuxit enormt stort på bara ett par år och nu är det femtio båtar cirka som är anmälda samt tusentals personer som tittar på.

Vi har tidigare skrivit ett inlägg om hur mjukvaran Pokeroffice kan förbättra ens pokerspel genom interaktiv träning. Om en är av en mer äventyrlig natur, och kanske har lite mer pengar på fickan, så är mkort pengaröjligtvis Poker-Runn något för den spelsugne. Det sker nämligen in real life och dessutom på häftiga båtar i Sommarsverige.

Poker-Runn började som ett litet litet event för båtar back in 2006. Idag är det närmast en folkfest och i år är det dags igen denna kommande helg och ett femtiotal värstingbåtar är anmälda till eventet som sker runt strandkanterna i Runn, Dalarna. Det hela går ut på att man åker båt och spelar poker på olika ”hållplatser” så som på Borlänge båtklubb eller Ornäs i Torsång för att slutligen gå i land i Slussen i Falun.

Från litet till jättestort

I nyhetsartikeln i DT får en av grunderna till Pker-Runn frågan om vad det är som gör att detta udda event har blivit så otroligt populärt, det är 25- 30 tusen åskådare som följer tävlingen, antingen från stränder eller från egna båtar. Detta säger en av de som startade tävlingen om varför denna växt sig så stor:

– Det är sammanhållningen. Vi lyssnar verkligen på vad deltagarna tycker och tänker. Det ska också vara kvalitet. Det vi gör ska vara bra, och det tror jag har stor betydelse för att så många båtar anmäler sig.

Doyles Room on New Software

Thursday, May 12th, 2011

Doyles Room just recently moved to the Yatahay Network that is home for among others True Poker. There was a lot of issues with the software, not resizeable tables for example and today Yatahay launches their brand new platform.Customer reviews are very positive so far but it’s impossible to tell if that is because of the difference compared to before or actual quality of the client. No doubt though, this is the right moment for Doyles Room and True Poker to get a new software as the major competitors dropped out of the US market on Black Friday.

US Poker Rooms

Monday, April 18th, 2011

You noticed of course that a number of big Poker Rooms just disappeared but did you know that they are far from all of the poker rooms out there accepting US Players?

Top Pick

The Top Pick Right now is Truepoker.com – they are getting a big chunk of the players from Full Tilt and Poker Stars. If you did enjoy playing poker on either of these bigger rooms True Poker and the Yatahay Network is where you want to go as it seems most players are ending up there.Most Poker Rooms don’t offer poker to US players as you might know and that’s the reason that just Poker Stars, Absolute, Ultimate Bet and Full Tilt Poker got busted.

True Poker

True Poker on the other hand do offer US poker and keeps doing it. They’ve been around longer than any of the other rooms and they are stable. My recommendation definately goes for trying True Poker out.

Punta Cana Poker Classic – The best of them all?

Tuesday, November 23rd, 2010

Punta Cana Poker Classic took place last week in Punta Cana and to be honest, it’s the best place I’ve ever played a tournament. The Hard Rock Hotel in Punta Cana is definately something extra.With $200.000 in the pot and the most beautiful hotel in the world the Punta Cana Poker Classic is already a Classic. A lot of celebrities could be spotted among them Doyle Brunson and the rest of the Brunsons. Winner, Canadian Peter Cross, walked away with about 65.000  something he seemed pretty pleased with as it was his biggest win so far.All in all the tournament was among the best I’ve ever played, there was some problems with local dealers but the luxury of the venue makes that almost disappear.

Point Poker a rising star?

Saturday, March 13th, 2010

A brand new actor is visible on the poker stage, Point Poker has reached the entreance. Might there really be room for yet another poker room in an already crowded market?

Point Poker is an Entraction skin and we have of course seen a lot of those lately, can you actually do something unique with a skin in the most populated network on the net? Well, in my view Point Poker manages to give a little extra. They offer Betting and Casino-game, ok, not really breath taking. What they do offer that might make you inhale a bit extra is taht they have incredible Rake Races and Massive bonuses. If you’re a decent player you know what that means, easy money on their way to your hungry hands. Give it a try.

Lots of trouble for bwin and the new client

Wednesday, June 10th, 2009

Bwin launched thier new client yesterday and it’s not without trouble, a lot of downtime for emergency fixes is one of the things that bother bwin and ongame players but there are other things to complain about as well.

 
One thing that a lot of the players complain about is the time the client waits while showing the winning hand. For a beginner this might be a feature but for a more experienced player there is no doubt that this is annoying. All in all my view on the new bwin poker is that overall it is a big upgrade from the last version though and we have to accept problems getting it up and running because in all big developement projects this happen.

Exclusive Preview

Wednesday, April 22nd, 2009

The Pokeriot editors just came from an exclusive preview of MyPokerBlog.com, a blogging plattform specialized on poker. Ok, there are lots of poker blog platforms but this one is another thing. Instead of just taking an ordinare blog platform and naming it pokerblog the guys and girls behind MyPokerBlog actually made something different. Posting hands for example is super easy, you do it in the hand history section instead of having to glue it in your ordinary blog posts. Functions as bankroll tracking has been added and a lot more poker specific features.Sadly MyPokerBlog is not up and running yet but will be within a month, until then you will have to take our word for it, this will be a kick as poker blog platform.

Buzzluck – Something really new?

Monday, March 16th, 2009

We don’t usually write about online casinos on Pokeriot.com but as I ran in to something that was completely new to me I really wanted to share it. I’m talking about Buzzluck.com, an online casino offering a lot more than just the green black jack table or the spinning auto slots. Buzzluck is really more of an experience.

 

Buzzluck is a brand new online casino and from how it looks poker rooms could learn a lot from the guys behind the site. One thing that is a bit strange is that the whole site is built in Flash 10 which forces you to download the last update from Adobe if you haven’t already installed it on your computer. I guess the reason for this is that they actually need a lot of functionality as the site aspires to be much more than just an online casino.

 

Buzzluck online casinoOne of the things that is fantastic with Buzzluck is the Live Lounge, they actually send live TV in your casino client and it’s not some random stuff they picked up but their own TV-channel called Live Lounge. The content is not all casino related but it’s all interesting, they do gadget reviews, top ten youtube clips and so on. Instead of just staring at the spinning autoslots you can actually look at interesting TV and just let them spin by themselves.

 

What about the games then? Buzzluck offers most of the common games that you expect a casino to have; Roulette, Video Poker, Craps, Black Jack and Slots. There are a lot of different variants of them as well so you will find what you are looking for.

 

And how about bonuses? Buzzluck are offering a range of different bonuses for the different kinds of players. My favorite is of course the 350 Euro first deposit bonus, to be honest I’m not much of a casino player so a first deposit is where i draw the line.
