Major revamp completed by Trident group
Bigger, better and with a completely new look, www.vegasusa.com online casino was relaunched this week by Trident Entertainment Group, which took over the ailing casino late last year and has been revamping the site and putting its affairs in order. Now a sister operation to the popular King Neptune’s and Trident Lounge quality casinos, VegasUSA boasts a full 51 game line-up that includes 6 traditional Table games; 22 slots; 4 feature slots; keno; 7 Poker games and the complete range of 11 high value Jackpot Madness progressives, all powered by Microgaming.
The superior Flash and download games package is backed by experienced management, a wide choice of financial options, premium banking security, a generous loyalty program and round-the-clock telephone, e-mail and live chat support.
For first time purchasers, a $50 welcome bonus is on offer and up to $20 in alternative purchase bonuses are available too.
“The Trident management team boasts years of industry experience and has our full confidence and support,” said Microgaming exec David Black.
Trident spokesman Scott Gaines says, “Our group has made a substantial investment in VegasUSA to bring it up to the standards of King Neptune’s and Trident Lounge, and we will be marketing that investment with a number of exciting promotions and a weekly Lotto. Our business approach is to under promise and over deliver, and we hope that online players will see evidence of that in the near future.”
Trident Entertainment Group has a reputation for honesty and quality, which is showcased in well-established casinos like King Neptune’s and Trident Lounge. Flagship operation King Neptune’s has been touted as a premier online gaming destination for good reason. Last December, it became one of the first ever online Slot Gacor casinos to capture all three top spots in the prestigious Gambling.com polls, taking first place honors in the Best Online Casino, Most Honest Online Casino and Top Site categories. Trident Entertainment Group also won Casinomeister’s coveted “Best Casino Group” of 2002. All Trident casinos operate under a Kahnawake Gaming Commission license. Trident Entertainment casinos are respected for their high-quality Microgaming software, wide variety of games, fast and secure payouts and commitment to customer service.
GETTING AROUND U.S. LAW
Gaming exec and an academic think it is
Mark Glusing, President of Poker.com Inc, and respected law academic Professor I Nelson Rose both feel that they have come up with a way to neutralize American legal opposition to online poker room activity, according to a media release from the company this week.
They hope to achieve this through a skill based system of online poker games that has been obtained from Swiss company Blue Diamond International Capital Inc, from which they have obtained a provisional patent and software assets.
“Certain jurisdictions in the U.S and Canada look upon the wagering of skill based games as not contravening gambling laws. Management considers the Skill Poker system as one of these skill based games,” says Glusing.
The company paid Blue Diamond US$50,000 and issued 3,000,000 shares in its common stock. In addition, Blue Diamond will receive the greater of US$3,500 per month or 4% of the gross revenue received by the company from operating games using the technology of the provisional patent. In the event that the technology is further licensed by Poker.com Inc. to a third party, Blue Diamond will also receive 20% of any initial license fee and 4% of the gross revenue of any such licensee.
According to the release, Poker.com plans to use the Skill Poker concept in the operation of its own skill based online poker card rooms marketing directly to players in the United States, Canada and worldwide. Once developed, Poker.com Inc.’s poker card room will be the only legal online system of gaming with all operations including the game servers located on North American soil.
The company has formed Skill Poker.com Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary registered in the State of Washington for the purpose of developing and operating the Skill Poker concept. Poker.com Inc. has acquired ownership of all materials in relation to the games of Skill Poker and Skill Blackjack, in addition to the domain names SkillPoker.com, SkillBlackjack.com, SkillOmaha.com, SkillHoldem.com and SkillStud.com.
The provisional patent application filed with the United States Patent and Trademark Office covers a system for determining the skill level in a tournament setting for many different card games including all forms of poker.
In what was almost a post script to the main press release, Glusing updated the media on his attempts to reverse the hi-jacking of the Poker.com domain earlier this year. His appeal to ICANN that the present registrants of the domain, on which he claims to have a long lease, have illegally taken it back has thus far failed. However, ICANN has suggested that action could more appropriately to be commenced against ALA Corp (the previous registrant of the domain). Poker.com Inc is to pursue this.
