The Unlawful Internet Gambling Act may be striken from the HR 3004 legislation.
Actions on the US House of Representatives Bill HR3004, the proposed Financial Anti-Terrorism Act of 2001 may be taken as early as today.
The bill, which has 18 House of Representative sponsors, covers numerous laws than strengthen existing money laundering legislation and includes clauses for reporting “suspicious” financial activity. HR 3004 also contains two sections (303 and 304) known as the Unlawful Internet Gambling Act, which were incorporated in the bill’s creation.
It appears, however, that the two sections are ‘out of place’ and have since caused significant dissent.
According to our sources, both sections may be removed today. The bill is currently in the Finance Committee, which will take one of the following options: (1) send it to the House Floor tomorrow for a vote (where it may be amended) or (2) send it to the Rules Committee today.
CryptoLogic Double Bonus Video Poker
It isn’t easy finding a bet with a player advantage, either in real Judi Online Terpercaya casinos or on the Internet. However, CryptoLogic released a video poker game with their new Version 4 software that offers a theoretical return of 100.04%. This includes the 0.1% cash back and assuming optimal player strategy.
The game is Double Bonus, and the following chart shows what each hand pays, the probability, and the contribution to the expected return.
The lower right cell shows a return of 99.94%; adding 0.1% cash back results in a return of 100.04%.
Remember that this return assumes optimal player strategy. In other words, the player plays his cards to maximize his expected return 100% of the time. Unfortunately, I don’t know of any strategy card designed for this game specifically.
Video Poker Strategy Master software by Tom Ski can produce near optimal strategy for most any video poker game, however, and the user may specify any pay table. This product is a must buy for any serious video poker player.
