For the moment, no such evidence has been officially confirmed. Relating to some rumors, technology giant Yahoo may lay in the arena of online poker.

Gaming companies in the Isle of Man and Gibraltor will be staying put even after new laws passed mean that there will be a 15% tax on UK gamblers. There was talk that maybe the gambling companies in these two countries wouldn’t be staying put but this has been laid to rest with the news of the new gambling tax.

The new tax is something that has been in the making for a long time now. It is based around new taxes that are being introduced in the EU. The while point of these new taxes is to boost the economy and we are seeing something similar being introduced into other European states. Just recently, we’ve even seen Spain pass a .03% tax on bank deposits.

There have been concerns that these new taxes will be passed onto the consumer but this isn’t possible. The taxes in this industry can never be passed onto the consumer because it’s only the companies themselves that are directly affected by these taxes. The whole point is to increase the strength of the economy and it is a smart road to go down.

It’s interesting to note that the gambling companies in Isle of Man and Gibraltor will put up a fight to stop these new taxes however they probably will not be successful given the direction the EU is heading down. The companies will also most likely stay in these states rather than relocate to the UK because of the other low taxes that are already present in those states. It makes far more financial sense for them to stay where they are.

An observation is made bloody: the Bellagio no longer attracts the crowds and several reasons that triggered the anger of the players this year at the Bellagio.

The main problem was raised by the players for the tournament area which is located in the casino floor in a smoking area next to slot machines. Smoke and a deafening noise of slot machines that complicate the concentration of players.

This room is inadequate and unworthy of the event buy-in of $ 25,000 and stars that are present. The Bellagio has yet half a dozen rooms including the huge “Grand Ballroom”.

It was followed by the wrath of Guillaume Darcourt indicating that the situation was unacceptable, the payouts are pathetic, unable to install Wi-Fi for journalists eager to relay the event, a reception and a deplorable management of the tournament incomprehensible.
