Gibraltar Gaming Commission loses court case, new UK gambling law’s on their way!

There are now no obstacles in the way of the new UK online gambling act which will go ahead as planned coming into effect on the 01/11/14. The Gibraltar gaming commission had initially mounted a legal challenge against the new laws stating that they will be poorly enforced and demand to much money in taxes meaning players could seek alternative riskier unlicensed online gambling venue. The UK government denied this stating that the new laws will in fact increase player protection.

The court case went down yesterday and the Gibraltar Gaming commission where obliged to prove that the new laws where unlawful which they failed to do paving the way for a new online gambling landscape for the thriving UK market which is worth in the region of £1.5 billion per year!

These new laws are already having a big impact with many popular online casinos closing their doors to UK traffic not happy with the proposed 15% point of consumption tax with some gambling establishments even going as far to sell their UK databases to other casinos that look to have already have secured the license such as the deal the deal between Go Wild and 32Red which we reported on last month.

Phil Ivey loses first court case to Crockfords Casino

Earlier on in the week we reported that legendary poker player Phil Ivey is currently involved in two multimillion dollar court cases versus brick and mortar casinos on both sides of the pond. Crockfords Casino of London England sued Ivey for non-payment of winnings and the Borgata in Atlantic city USA are suing for over $10 million dollars in winnings they already paid out over two years ago.

Phil Ivey is used to taking down tough competition being one of the world’s most successful gamblers but unfortunately for him he has lost round one with the English Judge ruling firmly in Crockfords Casinos favour stating:

“This is, in my view, cheating for the purpose of civil law”.

The judge believed that Phil had purposely tried to dupe casino staff into believing he was a superstitious gambler attempting to get lucky but was in fact taking advantage of small mistakes in the patterns on the back of cards used for his game of choice – Punto Blanco. The world’s best poker player was understandably upset to hear he is not going to receive his £7.7 million stating:

“I am pleased that the judge acknowledged in court that I was a truthful witness. I believe that what we did was a legitimate strategy and we did nothing more than exploit Crockfords' failures to take proper steps to protect themselves against a player of my ability."

The first battle has been lost but the war is still going and round 2 is on the horizon, Phil Ivey will now hope the American Judge will see it differently to his British counterpart and allow him to keep his $10 million in winnings!

Phil Ivey embroiled in two Court cases right now

Legendary gambler Phil Ivey is certainly a busy boy at the moment being involved in two lawsuits with brick and mortar casinos worth a combined $20 million!

The online poker player also affectionately known as the “Tiger Woods of Poker” appeared in a London court room yesterday in his first lawsuit versus Crockfords Casino owned by the mammoth Genting Casino Group. Phil Ivey is suing them for £7.6 million pounds stating that rather than paying his winning they decided to wire back his original £1 million stake and then initiate an investigation. The other Lawsuit is with The Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa in Atlantic City who claim they were cheated out of an incredible $10 million which they actually had paid out but are now trying to reclaim via the courts.

Both gambling establishments Claim an edge was gained by capitalizing on small flaws in the decks of cards which is deemed to be against the terms and conditions of both casinos with some of the charges aimed at Phil Ivey being Fraud, Unjust Enrichment and Civil Conspiracy. Phil denies all allegations that he cheated instead saying that “Over the years he had won and lost substantial amounts at Crockfords casino but had always honoured his debts”.

Regardless of the outcome of either lawsuit Phil Ivey has over $50 million in confirmed winnings between online and live poker and has also been crushing live games in Bobby’s Room for years so should be ok!
