Macau casinos remain open amid COVID closures

Macau has introduced a fresh round of closures to curb a recent rise in Covid-19 cases, though casinos will stay open.

A number of leisure facilities have been ordered to close following a sudden surge in coronavirus cases over the past week.

Cinemas, hair salons and nightclubs are among those facing closure from 5 pm local time today, while dine-in service at restaurants or similar establishments is prohibited, a statement on Macau’s government website read.

In addition, all leisure facilities managed by Macau’s Municipal Affairs Bureau, such as parks, gardens and exhibition halls, are being suspended from operation.

But casinos have evaded closure, despite several infections linked to them. Four positive cases were recorded in relation to an 18 June wedding held at SJM Holdings’ Grand Lisboa Palace.

And yesterday, the city’s daily testing identified two dealers, alongside a table game manager, office worker and a cleaner, as cases originating from casinos.

Earlier today, Macau’s Novel Coronavirus Response and Coordination Centre reported that 110 positive cases had thus far been detected.

This comes as citywide nucleic acid testing (NAT) is launched. All local residents and individuals staying in Macau must submit to testing.

Executive Order No. 102/2022, which introduces the latest closures, was issued by Chief Executive Ho lat-seng based on an evaluation by the Novel Coronavirus Response and Coordination Centre.

Besides the aforementioned properties subject to this order, theatres, indoor amusement parks, game centres, cybercafes, billiard rooms, bowling centres, saunas, massage parlours, beauty salons, gyms, health clubs, karaoke lounges, discos, dance parlours, cabaret venues and swimming pools will all close.

IGT inks 10-year contract extension with Kansas Lottery

International Game Technology (IGT) will continue to support the Kansas Lottery through mid-December 2032.

Both parties have put pen to paper on a 10-year contract extension that will see IGT deliver an enhanced version of its Intelligen electronic gaming central system.

By integrating IGT’s upgraded Intelligen software, the Sunflower State’s lottery will purportedly receive the supplier’s “most advanced systems technology to strategically manage its electronic gaming machine (EGM) network.”

Under this new agreement, the Kansas Lottery will receive site controllers that will maintain network diagnostics and communications between all gaming machines, as well as business intelligence tools for day-to-day operations management and reporting.

“IGT’s upgraded Intelligen system will provide the Kansas Lottery with a suite of comprehensive tools designed to drive revenues and offer its players world-class gaming experiences,” said Jay Gendron, IGT’s Chief Operating Officer for Global Lottery.

“Intelligen’s improved system performance will also allow the lottery to manage its vast network with maximum efficiency over the next decade and position the lottery to deploy future functionality to meet the needs of the evolving gaming landscape.”

In addition to EGMs and its Intelligen central system, IGT also provides the Kansas Lottery with instant ticket games and printing services. The new contract will run through 14 December 2032.

The company previously agreed a three-year contract extension with the lottery in 2019 but that is set to end in December of this year. The original agreement was awarded to IGT in 2008.

CRYPTOQUEEN WANTED IN EUROPE, CRYPTO CRASH NOTHING TO WORRY ABOUT

The ongoing crypto crash is nothing to worry about according to Mark Cuban, as relaxing of crypto tax rules arrives in Germany this week.

OneCoin’s founder Ruja Ignatova, the notorious ‘CryptoQueen’, has been added to Europe’s list of most wanted people. Ignatova orchestrated one of the biggest scams in the history of the blockchain and cryptocurrency.

She hoodwinked investors for billions of dollars back in 2017 and her brother was arrested in the US where he is still currently detained. Ignatova herself has disappeared with investigators speculating over where the cunning woman keeps the missing $5bn.

In the meantime, OneCoin, the scam project, has still been active in Bulgaria, where it was run from, under the nose of authorities.

Speaking of fraud, five state regulators in the US have slammed the Flamingo Casino Club, a metaverse casino with alleged ties to Russia that has been fraudulently associating itself with the prominent Flamingo Las Vegas casino.

Germany has introduced some changes to its legislation to make the sale of crypto tax-free if the cryptocurrencies are held for at least a year. This marks an important change in the way cryptocurrencies are regulated and should help with further adoption of these assets.

But attitudes towards cryptocurrencies haven’t been all warm and fuzzy, as Bankless, a popular educational YouTube channel on cryptocurrencies and digital assets, was banned by the Google-owned platform.

Regulators have been busy trying to figure out crypto fraud. The US Justice Department indicted Luiz Capuci Jr for a purported fraud scheme that had cost investors an estimated $62m. As the crypto market lost more than $1.2 trillion in value over the past few weeks, the events have been described as a “buyer’s market”.

Analysts see an opportunity for anyone who has been hesitant about cryptocurrencies to get started and involved with the process themselves. Meanwhile, there have been some interesting developments relating to the stablecoin market.

USD Tether lost five cents off its value. This is huge news because the cryptocurrency token is pegged to the value of the US dollar and it’s not supposed to be trading at $0.95 at all.

However, it was on Thursday. But all is well, as billionaire investor Mark Cuban is confident that the current cryptocurrency slump is just a “phase”, similar to what the internet went through in the 2000s.

In the meantime, you can still spend the weekend enjoying your favorite crypto casinos. Moreover, you can make your own gaming club. Please contact us when you have a chance.

METAVERSE CASINO SLAMMED BY US REGULATORS

A fraudulent casino project has been handed a 22-page cease and desist letter and asked to stop sales of its NFTs in five US states.

A metaverse casino projects with ties to Russia has been handed a cease-and-decease letter by five US state regulators.

The Flamingo Casino Club is accused of misleading investors into believing that the online casino is linked to the iconic Flamingo Las Vegas property.

The connection has been implied across the metaverse project to build up investor confidence and extract bigger investments.

However, the states of New Jersey, Texas, Kentucky, Alabama and Wisconsin have prepared a 22-page letter in which they address the fraudulent claims, and reveal it has ties to Russia.

The website IP of the NFT-inspired casino can be traced back to Moscow, raising another red flag.

The Flamingo Casino Club has made several false claims, including that it’s associated and in partnerships with Yahoo and MarketWatch.

Both claims have been disproved by the state regulators. In their letter, the watchdogs argued that the property is purposefully concealing its connection to Russia.

“Not only is it allegedly concealing its connection to Russia, but the Flamingo Casino Club is also allegedly using a phony office address, providing a telephone number that is not in service, concealing its actual physical location and hiding material information about its principals”, the letter reads.

The website is also suspected of other serious breaches, such as concealing information about use and origin of funds.

There is a lot of uncertainty around the project, which has made several ambiguous claims. Flamingo Casino Club has been telling participants that they will be entitled to 50% of the casino’s income by purchasing NFTs and participating in what now appears to be a Ponzi scheme.

The project’s website still displays the Las Vegas casino property which has denied all and any association.

AIBC & AGS: 2 Events Under One Roof: What’s The Occasion?

El país emirato donde se celebra la exposición es probablemente el lugar más importante del mundo para la economía del futuro y se espera que crezca en importancia y avance tecnológico, ya que se considera una de las mejores regiones del mundo para el desarrollo exitoso de los negocios.

El desarrollo a largo plazo, las últimas innovaciones y los complejos factores interrelacionados fueron debatidos por los principales comercializadores del mundo durante las Cumbres AGS y AIBC simultáneamente bajo un mismo techo. Más de 7.500 entusiastas, empresarios y expertos del sector acudieron al Intercontinental Hotel Dubai Festival City para asistir a emocionantes conferencias y a oportunidades únicas de establecer contactos con los principales profesionales del marketing del mundo. El equipo de Imperium-Games también asistió al evento, y no es la primera vez que acude a Dubai este año. ¿Cuál es la ocasión? ¿De qué se habló en tal evento?

El futuro de Blockchain

Dominik Ernst (un conocido desarrollador alemán) presentó algo interesante en su stand. Uno de los problemas más acuciantes en el desarrollo de los contratos inteligentes es la falta de datos reales. Pero debido a las limitaciones técnicas, como el protocolo de consenso, ninguna blockchain ha sido capaz de resolver esta limitación básica. El proyecto Acria Network resuelve exactamente este problema con los llamados Nodos Oracle, que no necesitan un intermediario. Además, ofrece un soporte de cadena cruzada para proporcionar datos reales a diferentes cadenas de bloques.

#VolcánDinero

Mientras Nikita Sachdev hablaba de cómo el dinero fiduciario convencional se ha depreciado en Venezuela, El Salvador anunciaba que generaría bitcoins a partir de la electricidad renovable y barata de los volcanes. Averigüemos en qué medida se convertirá Centroamérica en una criptogranja si el bitcoin se convierte en moneda de curso legal allí y no sólo en un libro de contabilidad. La legislatura de El Salvador aprobó la ley que permite el uso de bitcoin para las transacciones, el primer país del mundo en hacerlo.

Los delegados pudieron presenciar fascinantes conferencias, asistir a emocionantes exposiciones y participar en auténticos eventos de networking en lo alto del rascacielos de Dubai.

Pero eso fue todo en la cumbre de la AIBC, pero ¿qué pasa con el marketing?

Proximidad móvil

A pesar de los ambiciosos esfuerzos y las soluciones creativas de cada concursante, solo se eligió a un ganador: Hayi, una aplicación gratuita de creación de redes para los barrios de Dubai. Recibieron consultas gratuitas de expertos del sector, valiosas oportunidades de establecer contactos y un stand gratuito en la próxima cumbre de AGS, que se celebrará en Malta del 16 al 19 de noviembre de este año. ¿Estará usted allí? Podemos concertar una cita o simplemente ponernos en contacto con nosotros.

Las conferencias del día siguiente se centraron en la innovación, con expertos como Nick Ayton, el Dr. Davorin Kralj, Tom Wozniak, Farouk Aydin, Jamie Turner, Matt Conlin y Jim Mansfield, que trataron temas como el comercio electrónico y la inteligencia artificial en el marketing. En suntuosas cenas, ponentes y oyentes se reunieron en suntuosos locales para establecer contactos.

¿Cuál es el plan? ¿Quién es el siguiente? ¿Otra pregunta? El equipo de Imperium-Games se alegró de visitar esta maravillosa ciudad una vez más, fue una semana muy productiva. ¡Gracias a todos!

El resultado final para 2020

Since the New Year holidays are just around the corner, many people are summing up the year and making plans for the future. Let’s review the past year.

By the end of 2020, online casino gaming is more accessible than ever, and it’s only becoming more prevalent as technology advances. This boom in popularity has led to the creation of countless online casinos, so choosing top-notch software developers for casino platforms is a must for casino operators who want to stand out from the crowd. 

New providers

While there are many aspects to look out for when opening an online casino, careful selection of software developers should take precedence, as this will be the determining factor for many players. In addition to attracting them, great software developers will also keep your players loyal. This year we added 5 new and best on the market software providers – Merkur, Quickspin, Bally, Ainsworth, Yggdrasil. They excel in their field of work. It’s superb graphic and audio, eventually easy-to-use interfaces. As a company, we have a bright vision and strong focus on the future and are pushing forward our ambitious plans. New slot features, new promotion opportunities and new payment solutions.

Poker software

Poker: Psychology or Math? We suppose both. This year, Imperium-Games has deployed an unrivaled all-channel poker room. If there’s an opportunity to improve your game, why not take it? Our user-friendly poker client has everything you need to run your own fully branded, fully customizable poker rooms, with multiple game types and an extensive selection of table stakes and buy-ins.

Another great accomplishment this year is the android POS from Imperium-Games. It’s a V1s by SUNMI which allows us to obtain faster response and more flexible use. Progression is powerful. V1s supports the function of store membership card swiping. It provides the members with additional services such as points accumulation. That device promotes store members’ loyalty! It can be paired with a multifunctional scanning platform for hands-free operation. Specialists are on hand 24/7 to provide second level support for licensees, monitor the performance of our networks and escalate any issues.

London

This year we visited the ICE London 2020, we would like to remember it again at the conclusion of this past year. It was a beautiful event. We loved the esports area and a featured custom-built stage. It was very interesting to hear Danny Rogers’ thoughts on the industry and government regulation in the future. On the third day, we actively participated in workshops, shared knowledge, and met many of our friends. We got the opportunity to meet some of our clients who began as small start-ups and had progressed to exhibiting at ICE in their own right. 

Although it was a very difficult year for the world, the industry grew in size and developed considerably. We did a lot this year, and we will do even more next year. Stay tuned and have a great new year!
