DO 'BAD ACTOR' CLAUSES VIOLATE THE U.S. CONSTITUTION?
2014-06-19

The question of 'bad actors' - companies that continued to service the US market after the UIGEA passed in 2006 - has been at the heart of debate around online poker legalisation proposals recently, particularly in the political and tribal maneuvering in California, where two bills are currently before the Legislature (see previous InfoPowa reports).

It's an issue in which Pokerstars and Full Tilt Poker parent the Rational Group have an interest, having paid hundreds of millions in settlements with the US Department of Justice and formed an alliance with the California-based Morongo tribes and leading commercial card rooms in the state.

In the latest development, a distinguished - and independent - Harvard law professor Laurence H. Tribes assessment of the validity of bad actor provisions in the two Californian legislative proposals will give Rational encouragement.

The learned academic says that, if challenged, "bad actor" clauses are unlikely to survive an attack based on federal constitutional grounds.

The Constitutional Law professor names three areas where "bad actor" provisions could be effectively defeated:

* Such clauses qualify as constitutionally prohibited bills of attainder - a class that legislatively determines guilt and inflicts punishment upon an identifiable individual without provision of the protections of a judicial trial, otherwise known as trial by legislature.

* The December 31, 2006 cut-off date used in the California bills is arbitrary and discriminates against Pokerstars in a commercial protectionism sense under the Constitution's Equal Protection Clause.

* The Californian proposals trigger serious constitutional issues in an intellectual property sense, prejudicing Pokerstars' IP in California through restriction and contravening the Takings Clause in the federal constitution.




"REAL GAMING" BRAND WILL BE USED FOR SOUTH POINT'S NEVADA ONLINE POKER SITE
2013-07-23

With Ultimate Gaming's Nevada online poker site attracting a growing number of players, and the recent news that CIE's offering WS Apuestas Deportivas OP.com will probably be launching in October (see previous InfoPowa reports), there are now indications that a third Nevada online poker licensee is closing in on a launch date.
The Las Vegas-based South Point Hotel Casino & Spa's online poker licence was granted back in August 2012, and the company has been building up its proprietary online poker software capability for some time, missing its original 2012 target for a launch.
Earlier this month the poker information site Pocket Fives posted: "Just announced that South Point will brand its real money poker site as Real Gaming," a reference to a new brand created by South Point CEO Mark Gaughan for a proprietary poker client developed in-house.
South Point's chief operating officer Lawrence Vaughan has in the past said that his company's "home-grown" operation was built with Nevada regulations front-of-mind, and incorporates a slew of consumer and other protections.
It is understood that Global Cash Access is Real Gaming's payment processor and will facilitate cash outs and deposits.
Another indicator that a launch may be imminent has been recent marketing efforts designed to get players to register in anticipation of the commencement of real-money operations.
South Point has been operating a play-for-free website at South Point Poker.com for some time, using the reportedly clumsy Zen Entertainment software, although Gaughan has made clear that real-money action would not be powered by that company..


POKER FILM SEQUEL RELEASE DATE PUBLISHED (Update)
2013-04-24

The much anticipated sequel to the poker movie Rounders will be in theatres by end September titled "Runner, Runner" entertainment bingo online apuestas futbol media in the United States report this week.

Ben Affleck and Justin Timberlake star in the sequel, the script for which was written by the original Rounders authors. The new movie is directed by Brad Furman and is a set in the world of online gambling.

The switch in starring roles, replacing Rounders stars Matt Damon and Edward Norton, has excited some discussion, but Affleck and Timberlake apparently deliver a very professional depiction of their characters in the film.

Runner Runner will show Timberlake playing the role of a student-gambler earning his way through an ivy league college by playing in the online high stakes poker sector, whilst Affleck plays an internet poker businessman operating offshore in Costa Rica.

The two eventually come together in the Central American country when Timberlake's character feels he has been screwed by the operator.

Recognising the younger man's talent, Affleck's character employs Timberlake and the at times hectic and nosebleed action develops from there.

Screenwriter Brian Koppelman says he and fellow writer David Levien started work on the script back in late 2010, arriving at a first draft early in 2011. Producers that include Leonardo Di Caprio liked the concept, and production started in April 2012.
