เเทงหวยออนไลน์ Launches Rakeback Game
With the launch of เเทงหวยออนไลน์ has made it easier for rakeback to be available to all online poker players. There are all different levels with various rakeback promos with each being intended to give the player a reward for playing at CelebPoker.com
Basically, to explain how great this is, a rake is something that the online poker rooms take as a commission free out of each and every pot. These commissions go to various things such as software, personnel, and support. What a rakeback is simply the poker players getting part of that commission rebated back to them and put directly into their bankroll.
According to David Dononvan, CelebPoker’s CEO, “’It is fantastic that through RakebackCelebpoker.com we will be able to financially reward our existing players for their loyalty to Celebpoker. I am also delighted that any new CelebPoker player, whether currently playing free online poker and looking step up to low stakes online poker tables, high stakes online poker or tournament players, will be able to get the best and most exclusive CelebPoker rakeback offers through our own official site.”
CelebPoker is certainly hoping that RakebackCelebPoker will be just as popular as the many games that have gone before this and made them a success.
Poker Player Alliance Heads to Washington
US poker players take the fight to Washington this week as the 2 year old lobbying group Poker Players Alliance plans on being on Capitol Hill pressing Congress to consider the new bills trying to gain momentum to exempt poker from the new UIGEA or regulate the gambling industry in the United States.
Representing close to 800,000 poker players across the U.S., the PPA has thrust itself to the fore front with its leader John Pappas and chaired by former New York Sen. Alfonse D’Amato. This year the organization has spent $640,000 lobbying in Washington as compared to $540,000 in all of 2006.
Though legal to play poker online, the UIGEA passed last October makes it illegal for banks in the U.S. as well as U.S. credit card companies to process any payments made to online gambling sites outside the U.S.
The PPA is flying over 100 members and several poker champions to lobby lawmakers this Tuesday and Wednesday. They are trying to get poker exempted from the law which already exempts lotteries, fantasy sports and online horse races.
John Pappas also pointed out that his group also backs a bill that will regulate online gambling. The idea is to place a small tax online poker companies that in the long run net the U.S. government a couple billion dollars in yearly revenue.
