Jeju Casino Cheating Allegations Continue

The most important thing for any casino is to maintain a good reputation.  Nobody in their right mind will play any money based gain if they suspect that there will be a problem collecting their winnings.  Which is the problem with many online casinos, the vast majority of them target customers with hugely enticing offers of free money, free spins and plays.   They look good on the outside but if the casino doesn’t pay out winnings reliably then they’re completely worthless.    Unfortunately there are many of these casinos online but fortunately very few real, physical casinos that engage in these tactics.  It’s why it’s important when gambling on the web to pick a decent name like Bodog, try their Baccarat here.

There are still some stories however and the latest comes from the South Korean Island of Jeju, and their dealings with four Chinese customers who were refused payment of 1.1 billion won (just over a million US dollars) last May.   The tactic is one that is extremely common in dodgy online casinos, when you try and collect your winnings – they accuse the player of some sort of cheating.

Of course these accusations are nearly always made up, they are made merely to provide a convenient excuse to not pay up.  With online casinos, a bad reputation can be discarded easily though.  Couple of hours with a web designer and an online casino can be rebranded with a completely different identity, not so with a physical casino.

Jeju Casino Fails to Pay up

Jeju Casino Fails to Pay up

There is nothing that can destroy a real physical casino more quickly than a lack of confidence and reputation.  The choices for gamblers particularly for a huge market like the Chinese grow every year.  Which is why the casinos in Jeju are so worried about this particular case, four Chinese nationals reporting the Seogwipo casino to the police for refusing to pay and cash out their chips.

The casino originally alleged that the four had been cheating, however during a civil case this appears to be untrue.  It appears that the employee was instructed to make the allegations and no evidence can be produced to support their allegations.  The reputation of the Jeju casino industry looks in real trouble and many are very worried.

A million dollars might sound a lot, but the casino industry in South Korea is huge fueled largely by the Chinese, with Japanese gamblers a distant second. This story if it turns out to be true will definitely have a large impact on the Jeju casino circuit.

Video Gaming May Enter Nevada Casino’s

Las Vegas casinos are recognizing the need to diversify their amusement offerings, by adopting non-betting related enterprises so as to bring a fresh generation of visitor – interested in eateries and nightlife than never-ending rows of slots.

But what if casinos were to be able to appeal to this younger demographic to diversify their gambling offerings also? Betting on videogaming – which would basically be a kind of “ability gambling” for cash – could soon be a fact for Silver State casinos.  It’s an obvious step, there is a real need for casinos to develop and offer new alternatives to the traditional tables, already live roulette games online are starting to drag gamblers away from Vegas.

The commission desires its laws to alter so the commission itself would be permitted to determine on its own means earlier this week to enlarge the gambling market, and a legislative study committee broached the subject of enabling skill-based games in casinos.

Choice and Innovative Technologies

The suggestion, Reaser said, would “enlarge the power of the Nevada Gaming Commission to continue to update and improve regulations that support development and installation of gambling devices integrating progressive, alternate and sophisticated technologies.”

Part of Reaser’s suggestion would permit chances to shift for frequent customers by integrating ability-gambling into a slot machine, by way of example, and so basically letting a regular player – or “great customer” – to become adept at the game, and thus have better chances to win.
