BetConstruct Opens New Live Dealer Room

Software developer and iGaming business supplier, BetConstruct has officially announced the launch of their new Live Dealer casino room, Big Ben Hall.

The introduction of this traditional casino experience to players online happened this Thursday on the company's official web page. The new live dealer room will have dealers who are fluent in English, so for the time being, at least it will be reserved for English-speaking players only. The room will be broadcast online (on all BetConstruct operated casinos) in high definition multi-camera mode and will feature staple games such as blackjack, roulette and baccarat, among others.

Despite the difficulty and often challenging work of bringing the authentic live casino experience to players from a purely technical standpoint, the resulting human-to-human aspect, if gotten right, is worth all the trouble. The excitement is incomparable to the “ordinary” table games online. BetConstruct has gone a step further and offers their live dealer games with new, enhanced design and features. One of the features is the integrated multigame view technology that allows players to take part in four different games simultaneously.

2018 has been quite successful for the supplier so far, with several partnership agreements completed in the year's first half. In May, the company has partnered up with Fazi while one month prior to that, Apollo Games inked a contract regarding the supply of Apollo's content to BetConstruct casinos.

Are there any LCB visitors that are exclusive fans of live dealer games? Do you like the imminent land casino-like experience with dealers talking to players? Let us know of your live dealer experiences in the comments below!

John Cynn Claims 2018 WSOP Main Event Title after Grueling Heads-Up Against Tony Miles

John Cynn Claims 2018 WSOP Main Event Title after Grueling Heads-Up Against Tony Miles

Today is an important day as football is hours away from having its new World Cup champion, Novak Djokovic just sealed his fourth Wimbledon title, and the World Series of Poker crowned its own brand new champion mere hours ago. John Cynn was the final man standing from a field of 7,874 entries to become this year’s World Championship victor.

The player survived a grueling 10-hour heads-up match against Tony Miles to eventually claim the prestigious title and the $8.8 million first-place prize and the champion’s gold bracelet that go along with it. While Cynn was unable to say how his life will change now as he is nearly nine million dollars richer, the 2018 Main Event champion said that he was happy he would be able to help his family and parents and that the money would certainly make things easier for him.

Winning the major tournament was not an easy task. Cynn had to survive ten days of action, which culminated into an epic battle that lasted more than ten hours. The duel between Cynn and Miles actually became the longest ever played within the Main Event, beating Qui Nguyen and Gordon Vayo’s match in 2016.

It was ten hours and 199 hands of chips and the chip lead swinging back and forth between Cynn and Miles. The two players showed great poker skill and composure, but in the end it was Cynn who outlasted the whole field. Here it is important to note that this year’s WSOP Main Event was the second-largest ever in the history of the popular poker series.

How Heads-Up Unfolded

The final day of the Main Event kicked off Saturday afternoon at the Amazon poker room of Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino. There were three players left in contention at the time when cards were thrown in the air, those three being Cynn, Miles, and Michael Dyer.

Miles led the pack of three with 238.9 million in chips. Cynn was second in chips at the time with 128.7 million, while Dyer was trailing far behind his opponents with 26.2 million. The player eventually hit the rail in third place for $3.75 million in prize money.

Given the nature of the event, it was well expected that heads-up would be a long ordeal. However, hardly anyone was probably prepared for what would next happen at the poker table where the two 2018 Main Event finalists sat.

Miles and Cynn were nearly even in chips at the beginning of their epic match, with Miles holding a very slight chip lead. The next ten hours would see that lead changing hands on numerous occasions as none of the two players was ready to let go of the opportunity to capture the most prestigious poker title without a good fight.

Following 199 hands of heads-up play and 442 hands of final table play, the name of the winner became known at around 5 am local time. The final table dealt in this year’s Main Event saw Cynn betting 9 million from the button and Miles raising to 34 million from the big blind, which Cynn called.

The [Kh][Kd][5h] landed on the flop to see Miles bet 32 million and Cynn call. The turn card was the [8d]. Miles moved all in for 114 million while Cynn gave it some thought before calling and tabling [Kc][Jc]. Miles was drawing dead with his [Qc][8h]. The [4s] appeared on the river to seal it for Cynn. Miles hit the rail for a hefty consolation prize of $5 million.

While the 2018 Main Event runner-up said he was disappointed that he did not claim the title, he praised Cynn saying that he would be a great champion. Cynn himself spoke equally high of his final opponent.

Poland’s Regulated Gambling Market Remains Unpopular as Blacklist of Erring Operators Keeps Growing

Poland’s Regulated Gambling Market Remains Unpopular as Blacklist of Erring Operators Keeps Growing

More than a year after the re-regulation of Poland’s gambling market the country’s Finance Ministry, the governmental entity charged with overseeing all things gambling, has remained consistent in its efforts to detect violators of rules and to penalize those.

The Finance Ministry has been purging the local market by blacklisting unlicensed operators that target local gamblers. Under the country’s gambling law, the blacklisted companies must have their domains blocked by local Internet service providers. And at press time, Poland’s blacklist of erring operators includes 2,379 domains.

Two domains operated by bet-at-home were the last ones to be added to the ever-growing list. The operator actually faced trouble in the Netherlands earlier this week, as well, where the local gambling regulator, Kansspelautoriteit, fined it more than €400,000 for trying to lure local players.

Poland’s blacklist and its overall regulatory regime have been causing quite a stir in the iGaming community and have been branded as unfair and overrestrictive.

And while major industry players have resorted to legal action to convince the Polish government that they believe what has been going on in the country violates principles of the European Union, a local court has given the green light to lawmakers to continue adding companies to the now behemoth blacklist.

News emerged earlier this week that the Warsaw Provincial Administrative Court has upheld the Finance Ministry’s right to continue expanding its list of unlicensed gambling domains. The ruling has been issued as a response to complaints filed by five Sweden- and Malta-based gambling operators that had argued that the country had marred their established reputations within the iGaming community by adding their domains to the blacklist.

The Administrative Court has stated that it has found now issue with Poland’s new gambling law as it had been sent for review by the European Commission and the latter had not provided any negative comments regarding the way the country had decided to punish violators.

Unlike the Warsaw court, the Polish ombudsman has criticized the blacklisting practice as one that violated the right of “freedom of speech and access to information”.

Unpopular Market

Under Poland’s Gambling Act from last year, international sports betting operators can apply for a license from the Ministry of Finance in order to be able to operate in the country. However, just nine licenses have been issued since last April, when the new law took effect.

Cherry AB, the major Swedish gambling operator, entered the local market most recently. The company received its license earlier this month. On the other hand, big industry names such as bet365 and William Hill exited the market last year ahead of its re-regulation and have abstained from obtaining a license ever since.

Poland’s online gambling market has become quite unpopular with many operators due to the ridiculously high tax rate the country’s government introduced as part of last year’s re-regulation. Licensed companies are required to pay 12% on their turnover from local customers to the Finance Ministry. Given the fact that most of Europe’s regulated markets use revenue as a tax basis, it is quite understandable why there seems to be a general lack of interest in the Polish market.

While international companies are allowed to operate sports betting in Poland, as long as they have the necessary license, casino games are reserved to the state-run monopoly Totalizator Sportowy.

The launch of its online casino is expected to take place this fall after certain delays related to the selection of the provider that would supply games occurred. The Polish government was supposed to launch a bidding process for suppliers last August, but it was November when that process eventually took place. It later on became known that Playtech would be providing the state-run casino with the necessary gaming software.
