Google Ads

Online giant, Google has reversed its previous policy by permitting online gambling operators to advertise on Google UK. Any licensed gambling provider from the EU will be able to advertise on the search engine from this week.

Pajama Gamblers

According to a new study, Pyjama Gamblers are the ones to watch out for. Apparently, players who gamble from home tend to play for longer amounts of time yet feel totally in control owing to the fact that emotions are less intense online. Jamie Gold spoke to us at CAP Euro about his own pyjama gambling habits.

Giant Jackpots

It was a home win for Kiwi plasterer, Daniel Craker who beat over 300 opponents to win the biggest poker tournament ever to be held in New Zealand. He won his entry via a satellite tournament and walked away with over $200,000 New Zealand dollars.
