Atlantis Internet Group Signs With Cake to Power Tribal Online Poker

Monday, September 13th, 2010

AtlantisInternetGroup2In what could be a sign of things to come for online casino gambling in the United States, Las Vegas-based Atlantis Internet Group has signed an agreement with the popular Cake Poker Network (powering U.S. favorite, Doyle’s Room), to create a wide area online poker network for players residing in regulated tribal casino State’s.

While this may seem, at first, a bold and dangerous move in light of the UIGEA – albeit an ineffective online gambling ban – Atlantis Internet Group Chief Executive, Donald L. Bailey, says the agreement will give the Tribal Gaming Network (a patent pending intratribal/intrastate online casino network) an “immediate and legal solution” for tribes seeking to offer internet betting.

That’s because the UIGEA has exemptions for Indian Casinos, intertribal internet gaming, as well as State’s with intrastate online gambling laws. Personally, that’s news to me – I thought the only carveouts in the UIGEA were for horseracing, lotto and fantasy sports betting.

TribalGamingNetworkBut according to the National Indian Gaming Commission, which oversees tribal casino regulations in the State’s, the Tribal Gaming Network is 100% legit. It’s also 100% loaded. Synced with over ten tribal casinos and potentially allowing players in thirty State’s to play online casino games, the Tribal Gaming Network has the potential of offering one of the largest wide area progressive jackpot networks on the Web.

For now, Atlantis Internet Group has it’s sights on online poker, which currently holds the greatest potential of becoming regulated in State’s where tribal casino gambling is legal. California leads the way with an amended poker bill scheduled for legislative action before the year is out, while both New Jersey & Florida are considering similar options.

The Cake Network is certainly a great choice for launching an online poker network. With thousands of players online at any given moment and an open door to the U.S. online poker market, Cake will give the Tribal Gaming Network instant liquidity, not to mention credibility, while a giant surpluss of players will only serve to strenghten Cake in return.

Vampire Bets Getting Free Poker Lessons From Doyle Brunson?

Tuesday, September 7th, 2010
Look out Hendon Mob. Doyle Brunson has a Killer Team in the making.

Look out Hendon Mob. Doyle Brunson has a Killer Team in the making.

I just read an article about poker legend, Doyle Brunson, who has apparently divulged that a colony of Vampire bats are living it up on the property of his Montana summer home. I know, I know, big deal, right?

However, it doesn’t end here. In addition to knocking off some six thousand insects every night, the colony of blood thirsty birds are taking poker lessons from the Texas Dolly himself, and apparently know how to play a mean hand of Texas Hold’em. Okay, maybe not all of them – just the one’s who know their blind(s)….C’mon, admit it – for a bad joke, that was pretty funny.

According to Brunson, they are pretty good at bluffing too. Every so often when taking his early evening walk, a few bats will make a diving swoop right at his head! Brunson – in fear of his life – has no choice but to fold on those hands. I don’t know about you, but I’d do the same if someone…err, a bat…was trying to drink my blood at the poker table.

I know what you’re thinking¬† – what is this April Fool’s Day? Well, if we’re talking about my life, many a day is April Fool’s Day. But the truth of the matter is that I’m always looking for any good reason to talk about Doyle Brunson, and consequently, his highly rated online casino, Doyle’s Casino. Read the OCS Doyle’s Casino Review if you want to find out more.

In the meantime, I’ll be studying up on the bluffing techniques of Vampire bats at the poker table. Then, just maybe, I too will have a good shot at making the Brunson 10. Now that is even harder to believe than poker playing Vampire bats, my friends!

Doyle’s Casino Kicks Off Online Slots Tournaments This August

Tuesday, August 3rd, 2010

Doyle’s Casino is one of our favorite RTG-powered, US facing online casinos here at OCS. Besides the fact Doyle Brunson himself has given his personal assurance that his namesake online casino is committed to providing the best customer service and an outstanding gaming package, Doyle’s Casino has truly got it going on in the realm of promotions and tournaments – basically what serious online gamblers expect to receive on an ongoing basis.

When Doyle’s Casino first received a listing on our main online casino reviews page, they were offering a generous welcome match bonus worth up to $1,000 Free, up to 25% insurance on weekly losses at table games, slots and video poker, as well as 150% bonuses for wagers on select new online casino games and a “Rock Around the Clock” bonuses dishing out up to 30% Free to returning VIP players.

That’s a lot of promotions, is it not? Well, guess what? They’re still available for the taking. And apparently, they are going to be available indefinitely. But that’s not what I want to talk about really. The thing about Doyle’s Casino Online is that – like I said before – they offer much more than a diverse package of bonuses.

In terms of tournament play, Doyle’s Casino has long offered online blackjack tournaments – something which more and more U.S. facing online casinos are beginning to do. And, obviously, poker tournaments are a mainstay at Doyle’s Room (which yes, casino members can also sign up with). But until now – and I repeat, until now – Doyle’s Casino has shied away from slots tournaments. Perhaps wanting to draw more focus on the blackjack tournaments, I suppose the demand for slots tournaments is too great to ignore.

Kicking off the month of August, Doyle’s Casino is hosting “Grand Opening $50 Free Rolls”, taking place four times a day (12 pm, 4 pm, 6 pm, 8 pm) from August 2-7. For the remainder of the month, $50 freerolls take place twice daily at 5 pm and 8 pm (Eastern Standard Time). In addition to the freerolls, Doyle’s Casino is hosting weekly tournaments guaranteeing $750. These kick off every Saturday at 7 pm, and cost $10 to join.

For gamblers familiar with the Real Time Gaming online casino software platform, the Real Series of slot machines should ring a bell. In the case of Doyle’s slots tournaments, all action will be initially held on “Loose Caboose”, “Crystal Waters” and “Texan Tycoon”.

Casino Affiliate Programs Community Certification Proving a Success

Friday, April 30th, 2010
CAP: Joining Hands to Make Sure Everybody Gets Paid!

CAP: Joining Hands to Make Sure Everybody Gets Paid!

Earlier this year, OCS reported on the newly launched CAP Community Certification, which for anyone needing a refresher, is a new system that allows affiliates to have a say on which online casino affiliate programs are given a green light to become a “CAP Listed Program”. In other words, instead of allowing just any new affiliate programs to purchase a listing with CAP, prospective affiliate programs must first go through the 10,000+ affiliates composing what amounts to the largest business generator for the vast majority of online casinos today.

A noble and innovative approach for approving affiliate programs (to say the least), OCS is happy to report CAP’s new community certification program is off and running and has thus far been a major success. But before explaining exactly how the program works, let me first take a paragraph or two or there or four to explain what an affiliate program is for anyone not in the know. Sorry all you industry folk out there who may consider this child’s play, but OCS is first and foremost dedicated to the player community.

That said, let me explain what a casino affiliate program is. If you haven’t noticed already, when you do a search on any of the major search engines to find a new online casino to play at, you have a better chance of coming across a portal site dedicated to reviewing and promoting certain online casinos than you will actual online casinos. This is great in the sense that many of these review portals serve as a one-stop shop for finding the best online casinos to play at, although there is a chance you will come across some bias while doing so.

The reason being is that all of these review sites are affiliates of the casinos they promote. What that means is that for every referred player, the affiliate gets paid. There are different types of revenue sharing deals, but for the sake of this article, let’s just say that it’s in the financial interests of the affiliates to refer players. Of course, this poses a conflict of interest when it comes time to being “objective” in an affiliate review of an online casino. However, there are so many online casinos vying for affiliate promotion (considering its the affiliate websites that generally dominate the search engine rankings), that it is within the interests of the online casinos to run a reputable and trustworthy business operation.

In other words, the leading affiliate portals in business today are dedicated to only promoting those online casinos which can be trusted to pay their player, which in effect, means the affiliates themselves stand to be paid for their referrals. Considering the competition that is out there, the affiliate business model lends itself for affiliates to promote online casinos which are going to generate positive customer ratings and testimonials. In effect, this means they will stand to gain more business in the future. With all of the player forums and watchdog affiliate sites (like OCS) out there, rogue online casinos simply do not have a chance to thrive. Rip off the first player, that’s the fault of the online casino. Rip off a second player, that’s the fault of the second player! Get my drift?

That said, when a casino affiliate program gets approved by CAP’s cmmunity (which requires at least an 80% approval rating), there is a VERY good chance the online casino being promoted by said affiliate program is going to be a solid place to wager real money at. It definitely ensures the online casino holds all of the necessary regulatory credentials to guarantee a safe and fair wager online. Before, when the approval process was based simply on being able to afford paid advertising, there was a greater chance of the affiliate program not turning out on the up-and-up.

In order to be eligible for a CAP community certification, an online casino affiliate program must hold a regular listing with CAP for a period of at least six months and must have a dedicated affiliate manager for handling affiliate relations. Voting lasts for a period of one month, followed by a tally of the approval rating. If, as mentioned, at least 80% of the tallied votes approve of the affiliate program, a CAP Community Certification Seal will be awarded to the affiliate program, which will also be listed in an exclusive section on the CAP website. To date, seven affiliate programs have been approved, including that which manages U.S. facing Doyle’s Casino. Five additional programs are currently up for voting.

Two New Online Casinos White-listed for Review at Online Casino Suite

Friday, February 19th, 2010

OCS is pleased to announce the latest online casinos to receive a green light for a listing and in-depth online casino review here amongst what we here at OCS and many seasoned online gamblers consider to be the best online casinos in business today. What is special about our latest addition (the name of which I’m not going to reveal until like the last paragraph of this blog post….A guy’s gotta stay true to his style, right?) is that not only does it offer a solid casino gaming package, it powers one of the most popular U.S. facing poker rooms in business today.

See, I’m giving you hints – you don’t need me to tell you the name. Alright already, here’s another one: Not only does this place have a solid casino poker offering, it is the namesake of one of the the most legendary and respected players in the professional poker circuit. Still not a clue? Okay, this guy has a fantastic nickname that rhymes with Lexus Molly, which just so happens to be the name of my ex-girlfriend. I’m just going to say it right now before you ask – I didn’t know “she” was a man, okay? Oh, you want to know about the name of the casino still?

In that case, for anyone more clueless than me who still doesn’t know what I’m talking about (don’t worry…I still don’t even know what I’m talking about), I am referring to the “Texas Dolly” himself, Doyle Brunson and his top-tier online gaming package – Doyle’s Casino and Doyle’s Room. No, not his bedroom silly – one of the fastest growing online poker rooms today.

Although two separate sites, after joining one or the other, you’re in the family, so to speak. And that, my friends – the concept of family – is one of the main reasons why OCS is excited to make Doyle’s Casino the latest addition to our online casino reviews directory. Now, don’t get me wrong, Doyle isn’t going to come bail you out of jail or let you borrow his car. However, his management promises they will be doing all they can to give you a top-notch online gambling experience.

Throw on top of that a solid lineup of bonuses, which include a 100% Slots and Specialty Games bonus up to $1,000 Free, new games bonus worth 150% up to $500 Free, unlimited reload bonuses worth 25% and a poker bonus worth 110% up to $550 Free, the best that RTG software has to offer, and you are looking at one of the best online casino poker sites in business today. The review will be published shortly, so be on the lookout for it! Oh, and you might have caught the title said “two new online casinos” as in more than one – Ya there is another – and it’s a biggie too. Stay tuned!
