Four Potential New Teams

The National Hockey League has announced that their considering adding a four additional teams to the NHL. This came as a shock to many as the NHL is already the largest professional sports league in the world. One new team will be added to each one of the four NHL divisions. This information was released after the NHL Association revealed to the press that they proposed this idea to see if anyone will come up and offer their money in order to create a new team.

This means that these new NHL Teams could be located anywhere across Northern America. It’s unknown as of right now where these potential new four teams might be located but we do know that depending on their location they’ll be able to become a major sports property. There have already been sports analysts who believe that bringing a new team to Ontario or British Columbia would prove to a major success in the future. The fact of the matter is that there isn’t any other major cities in Ontario other than Hamilton in which a new NHL Team could be justified.

The Pacific Division will more than likely create the best team out of each other division as it holds last year’s Stanley Cup winners the “Los Angeles Kings”. These new teams wouldn’t be created until the 2014/2015 NHL Season has ended which won’t be for another six months. We’ll keep you updated on what might happen with these four new teams, it could just be that this proposed idea never comes to light.

Mansion Poker

Mansion Poker revealed last week that their abandoning the United Kingdom Online Gambling Market on September 15th. Players will have the ability to withdrawal all of their funds until that date, afterwards all funds that haven’t been taken out by players will be kept my by the casino. The reasoning for Mansion Poker leaving the market is because of the regulatory infrastructure happening in the UK Gambling Market. No operator wants to pay the mass amount of taxes that will come with operating in the United Kingdom.

Those players who are still active at Mansion Poker have been recommended to play at TitanBet Poker, this in return will allow for players to have the opportunity to continue to play a poker experience that resembles Mansion Pokers experience to the tee. VIP Players who do transfer over to Titanbet poker will be able to keep their VIP Status and also receive a match bonus worth 200%.

The United Kingdom Government has had a large amount of operators pull out of the market which has worried not only the government but also players. You see online gambling operators will now have to pay a 15% tax on every gambling platform they offer to their punters. This will prove to be a mass amount of money lost from the casino which has lead to the majority of operators leaving the market.

This information came to light after Mansion Poker sent an email to each one of their customers. The email reads as follows, “Due to changing regulations regarding online gaming in the United Kingdom, we must inform you that Mansion Poker is required to close its doors to UK players on September 15th, 2014. As a result, we kindly request that you withdraw any and all funds you have in your Mansion Poker account.”

Betfair To Stay In Jersey Market

The Trump Plaza online casino will be shutting down their doors for good on September 16th, after nearly a year in operation the Trump Plaza online casino has been forced to shut down their doors as they haven’t been able to turn a profit what so ever. The casino was actually losing money, the casino wanted to shut down months ago but continued to operate in hopes that their popularity would increase in those final three months. Unfortunately their popularity dwindled down to almost nothing which resulted in the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement telling the Trump Plaza online casino to shut down their doors.

No one will miss this online casino as the majority didn’t bother to even register an account with them as their services seemed poor. What punters have been concerned with is what will happen with Betfair? many have been waiting for this software to transfer over to another online casino and with Trump’s closing it could mean that this software developer will leave the market as well. You need not to worry as Betfair will continue to operate in the New Jersey Online Gambling Industry. They just first have to find an online casino that is willing to take on their platform and provide it to their punters.

There isn’t any word as to which online casino will be taking up Betfair as a platform. Many people hope that Tropicana Casino will take them up as their popularity is large in scale and having Betfair as a platform will only allow for that popularity to grow.

Full Tilt Poker stands as a leader amongst various other poker rooms. Throughout their years of operations Full Tilt Poker has seen a mass amount of players deposit into their player account, the poker room has seen itself rise to popularity in a short period of time and Full Tilt Poker has seen their demise as well. Several years ago Full Tilt Poker saw a decrease in player activity due to their previous owners “The Rational Group” not paying players their winnings. Luckily for Full Tilt Poker and PokerStars there is still a chance for them to reclaim their fame. Both of these poker firms owe a great deal of thanks to Amaya Gaming, a Canadian based gambling firm that recently purchased both FTP and PokerStars.
