FEDS CHALLENGE CONSTITUTIONALITY OF KENTUCKY DOMAIN SEIZURES

Department of Justice attorneys working on business matters connected to the “Black Friday” case (United States v. PokerStars, et. al.) recently filed a motion to strike Kentucky’s claim of ownership against several gambling-related internet domains involved in the case. Kentucky sought to seize 141 gambling domains in a notorious 2008 legal maneuver that brought protests from far beyond the gambling sector, including internet-freedom and business groups. The DOJ’s motion offers evidence that Kentucky never actually seized anything (despite the commonwealth’s claims) and that Kentucky’s motions to attach in connection with the “Black Friday” case be denied, because the commonwealth lacks standing to file, cannot claim certain defendants’ rights, and the claim interferes with national sovereignty matters. The DOJ brief also rejected Kentucky’s claims for costs, interest, and attorney’s fees.

Both Bally and IGT have positioned themselves to provide infrastructure for online sites, and will partner with existing brick-and-mortar casinos. Bally has already inked a deal with the Golden Nugget, and ShuffleMaster, while IGT previously acquired the Euro-facing Entraction Network, giving the company a ready-made poker platform.

 Online Poker Hits Illinois Legislative Agenda
 
 An out-of-the-blue measure to create an intrastate online poker network serving Illinois residents garnered surprising strength after being attached to a much-debated casino expansion bill. A half dozen new casinos in locations including downtown Chicago and the state’s second-largest city, Rockford, garnered support from a bipartisan majority, clearing Illinois’ state Senate with ease, but facing negative comments from Democratic Governor Pat Quinn. Illinois faces massive budget shortfalls and the bill, backed by the state’s existing casinos and racetracks, is being pitched as a tool for jobs and revenue generation. State Senate officials claim having enough votes to possibly override a Quinn veto.

SPORTINGBET MAKES FINAL PAYMENT TO US AND NEGOTIATES WITH FOXWOODS

 With an eye toward partnering with Connecticut’s Foxwoods Casino and reentering any future US online poker markets, the UK-based online gambling firm made the last of three installment payments to American prosecutors. SportingBet agreed to this deal in 2011 to avoid prosecution for its pre-UIGEA business with US customers. SportingBet’s final $6 million payment brought the total paid to the US government to $33 million. This leaves the company free to work with American casinos on future projects. The talks with Foxwoods come as that major East Coast casino faces a $2 billion debt, along with increased competition from neighboring states and an increasing possibility of casino gaming coming to neighboring Massachusetts.
