Phrases like “player privacy” and “opt-in” not in this vocabulary


Doing the rounds of casinos and portals this week was an offer to buy or trade player databases which clearly illustrates the need for a tougher official stance on the spam-merchants who create and sell these lists to email marketers, often without asking whether the players want to be “traded” or “bought”.


Daniel Bratt of Global Max is just one of a legion of salesmen working at getting as many online gamblers on their lists as possible. And it is clear from the content of the circular that although “opt-ins” (folks who agree to receive this stuff) are at a premium, the marketers are more concerned with incorrect email addresses than they are about sending out unsolicited marketing emails.


A recent US consumer survey carried out by the respected eMarketer company showed that 73 percent of American consumers are angry and frustrated at the continual bombardment of unsolicited marketing emails, and would like to see significantly tougher anti-spam measures.


The list-hunters described here, who boast an online gambler list of 4 million names are a good example of why they feel this way.

That has led to a new and exciting partnership between one of the most sought after speakers for these conferences internationally and his organization with …

German Legal Translation

German Legal Translation

German law is based on the Constitutional Law if Germany (1949) which was also adopted by East Germany following reunification.  Its roots stem back to Roman law, but German law also carries a strong Napoleonic influence.  German law is made up of public law, for matters involving the state (including criminal law) and private law.


Swiss law derives largely from the Swiss Civil Code which has been in force since 1912.  The Swiss Civil Code carries heavy influences of the German Civil Code and also some influences of the French Civil Code.  Swiss law is particularly highly developed in certain areas, e.g. finance and tax, and also varies from canton to canton.


Translating in and out of German, including Swiss and Austrian German, is one of our largest language combinations.  We have a very strong in-house German capability and have carefully built up relationships with a wide selection of world-class German translators.


Whether you’re looking to expand your business into a German market, or you want to build your existing presence a German-speaking country, we are the perfect partner.

Halo?? – Apakah Ada yang Ada untuk ?

Halo?? – Apakah Ada yang Ada untuk ?

Layanan pelanggan didefinisikan sebagai tindakan melayani pelanggan. Definisi yang cukup sederhana, ya? Mengapa kemudian, sebagian besar kasino online tampaknya tidak dapat memahami seni sederhana dari layanan pelanggan?

Kegagalan untuk melayani pelanggannya dengan benar adalah satu-satunya keluhan terbesar yang disuarakan terhadap kasino online. Salah satu alasan utama adalah bahwa komunikasi di bawah standar. Kasino baru muncul setiap hari, tetapi kasino yang berkomunikasi secara efektif dengan pelanggannya sangat sedikit.


Mengapa layanan pelanggan yang baik tampaknya begitu sulit dipahami? Teknologi yang ada untuk menyediakan layanan pelanggan yang sangat baik, seperti email, telepon, live chat dan lain-lain. Semua alat ini sudah tersedia, dan, sampai taraf tertentu, sudah digunakan oleh perwakilan layanan pelanggan kasino online. Namun, seperti yang dibuktikan di sini, hanya memiliki alat tidak berarti pekerjaan akan selesai. Alat-alat ini tidak hanya harus digunakan, tetapi digunakan secara efektif. Ketika saya terus-menerus membaca keluhan pelanggan yang mengatakan hal yang sama, seperti, “Saya tidak bisa mendapatkan jawaban. Halo? Apakah ada orang di sana?”, itu memberi tahu saya bahwa mereka tidak digunakan dengan tepat.


Sebuah survei baru-baru ini yang dilakukan di WinnerOnline, situs Togel hongkong web dan forum game populer, menunjukkan bahwa 47% pembaca mereka yang mengikuti jajak pendapat berpikir bahwa layanan pelanggan di kasino online adalah “Tidak Hebat”. Terus terang, saya terkejut bahwa mereka begitu baik, dan bahkan lebih terkejut bahwa hanya 11% yang mengatakan “Benar-benar Mengerikan”. Tanpa ragu, suara saya adalah, “Benar-benar Mengerikan”.


Saya memulai pengalaman layanan pelanggan saya di toko ritel batu bata dan mortir, dan saya menemukan bahwa cukup mudah untuk mentransfer prinsip-prinsip layanan pelanggan yang hebat dari lingkungan itu ke lingkungan online. Sekarang, meskipun tidak ada orang yang sempurna di dunia fisik, di mana kesalahan layanan pelanggan memang dibuat, saya tidak dapat membayangkan skenario di mana seorang pelanggan memasuki toko, menyapa rekan penjualan, dan tidak hanya tidak mendapat tanggapan, …

Chips are down as loss hurts Burswood

Chips are down as loss hurts Burswood

A $4 million loss on international commission business in the first three months of the 2003 financial year has cast a cloud over Perth casino group Burswood’s continued involvement in the high-roller market without tax concessions from the West Australian Government.


Burswood’s announcement of the surprise ICB loss came as the board confirmed it was considering raising fresh equity as the September 30 deadline approaches for the $67 million settlement of a 1997 agreement to buy the five-star Burswood Hotel from Japanese businessman Tiebu Ogino.


Burswood reported a 6.9 per cent slide in earnings to $20.6 million for the 2002 financial year, a result chairman David Young said was affected by construction disruptions at the casino and resort complex, the impact of September 11 and the collapse of Ansett.


Mr Young said the 56.2 per cent rise in turnover to $85.2 million in ICB, along with an improved win percentage of 1.42 per cent, was a positive feature of the 2002 result. He said that represented the first ICB increase since the 1996 financial year, boosted by Burswood’s penetration into new international markets.


However, Mr Young said that since the June 30 balance date, a deteriorating win rate of just 0.5 per cent had flowed through to produce a $4 million loss on ICB.


Burswood wants a reduction in its 15 per cent high-roller tax rate as part of a suite of concessions sought from the State Government, which remain the subject of sensitive negotiations.


“It [the $4 million ICB loss] underscores certain points we’ve made about our tax regime,” Mr Young said.


“The casino tax that applies to our ICB business is a cost that we have to bear in mind when we carry out a strategic review as to whether you’re …

Ligaz11 Review of High Stakes Poker: The Sky’s the Limit

Ligaz11 Review of High Stakes Poker: The Sky’s the Limit

What does it take to play poker for a living? What is it like to play in big games? What does it take to win? These are the questions Doug Young attempts to answer in his book, High Stakes Poker: The Sky’s the Limit, a chronicle of the lessons learned by a professional poker player.


Young’s book provides advice on what it takes to play at the highest levels in the moderately big games in which he plays. He doesn’t focus on the play of hands. In fact, he doesn’t mention a single hand of poker in the entire book. Instead, his focus is on the mental and psychological aspects that are required in order to play winning poker. This is a collection of about 30 mostly stand-alone essays which contain this advice. Some sample topics include, “Finding A Game”, “Poker & Booze”, and “Pay Attention To That Inner Voice”.


Almost all of the advice is solid, such as advising players not to play with scared money, to quit a game if you’re not playing one’s best, and that players’ biggest adversaries usually are themselves. Some advice isn’t as good. Young talks about how important it is to recognize and play a rush, and how important it is to stay out of the way of another player’s rush. *sigh*. I wish I had a dollar for every poker player who misinterprets or just doesn’t understand the ramifications of the Central Limit Theorem. This is just wrong, and I firmly believe that this sort of advice is harmful to players. Fortunately, very little of the book’s contents are so destructive.


On the other hand, the good advice given in this book just isn’t that strong. For example, Young provides some guidelines for maintaining an adequate bankroll, but it’s …

Police ask prosecutor for gambling guidance

Police ask prosecutor for gambling guidance

Poker players beware.

Playing for money in Missouri could be unlucky – even for those who win every hand all night long.

Authorities are taking a tougher stance on poker games for money after a Monday meeting between the Jasper County prosecutor and Joplin Police Department.

The prosecutor clarified Missouri’s gambling law and how it relates to games such as the increasingly popular Texas Hold’em variety of poker.

“I had a conversation with Joplin police Lieutenant Carl Francis, and we talked about the definition of games of chance,” said Prosecutor Dean Dankelson. “I don’t think anyone is looking at breaking up games at someone’s house, but the law doesn’t differentiate between games at a home or games at a business. Any game of chance that meets the definition of gambling in state law is against the law.”

Joplin police Cmdr. Jim Hounschell said the conversation came after a Saturday incident in which police were called via an anonymous tip to a Main Street business about a poker game in which players paid a $20 fee to play and the winner of the game took home the pot.

Hounschell said no one was arrested in this incident.

“We only took a report, and we’ll turn that over to the prosecutor,” he said. “After talking to the prosecutor, we will, in the future, shut down these games and cite the people involved.”

Dankelson said that with the increasing popularity of games such as Texas Hold’em, people should make sure they are aware of the law when it comes to gambling.

“I can’t recall ever prosecuting anyone for playing Texas Hold’em,” Dankelson said. “What I would advise business owners is if you are thinking about holding one of these tournaments in your business, contact an attorney and get their opinion as to whether …

Lens to Judi Online Qq

Lens to Judi Online Qq

Let me introduce you to my travelling companions. Some time ago I looked at the schedule for the tournament and decided that I would go for the first two weeks and visit every venue. After checking the logistics I put together an itinerary which fitted the bill. I circulated this and three friends expressed an interest.

Albanian Essex Boys.

Darren, you don’t need to worry about. He can be relied upon and has helped with everything. It’s Steve and Ivan we need to watch out for!

Steve’s introduction on this visit was by text to Darren. “Problems on the bus in London, I think I’ll be there in time.”

Albanian and Swiss fans mingle.

No problem we are booked on the 8.58 Eurostar, arrive in Lille at 11.30, have to check into our Judi Online Qq hotel, dump our bags and catch the 12.19 to Lens.

He made it, and so did we. Arriving in Lens full after sampling business class catering. (Thanks again, Darren).

Along the way we caught up on the last four years as we were all together at Euro 2012. Amongst the stories told, the most memorable was Steve saying that it had taken him half an hour to eat a snail. Darren explained that snail’s are slow!

Switzerland v Albania, Euro 2016, Lens.

On the train from Lille to Paris we discussed politics with two Frenchmen, who lived in Newcastle upon Tyne. Running Le Petite Creperie in the city – visit if you can.

In Lens we were to meet Ivan, we expected him to be waiting outside the train station but there was no sign. We took a moment to look around, and decided to head for the other exit, where Ivan would have arrived earlier. There he was sat patiently in the waiting …

Eto’o is Africa’s lion Togel Online again

Eto’o is Africa’s lion Togel Online again



Eto’o.If Alexander the Great conquered the known world and beyond by the age of 30, Samuel Eto’o has come pretty close on the football field. He has just been named African Footballer of the Year for a record fourth time and shows no signs of calling a halt to an already illustrious career.


At 29, the Cameroonian captain has a soccer CV most of us would die for.


He is his country’s captain and record goalscorer and has represented Cameroon in three FIFA World Cups, won an Olympic Games gold medal and won two African Nations Cups with the Indomitable Lions, while participating in a further four. He remains the all-time top scorer in that tournament and has netted 52 times in 101 games for his nation.

His club resumé includes Barcelona, Inter and Real Madrid and Eto’o has won the UEFA Champions League at all of them. This year he became the first footballer to win two continental trebles of league, cup and Champions Togel Online League, having collected a clean sweep first at Barcelona and then at Inter.


Leaving Spain after five seasons and 171 strikes he joined José Mourinho at Inter in a swap deal with Zlatan Ibrahimovic and bagged 21 goals, not bad for an inaugural outing in defence-heavy Serie A.


A string of other garlands include a purple year in 2006 when he became La Liga’s top gunner and won the Man of the Match award in the Champions League final. Most recently, Eto’o scored in the FIFA World Club Cup final as Inter were crowned the best team on the planet, their Cameroonian ace receiving the Golden Ball.

A lithe runner blessed with turbo-charged heels, a quick-thinking footballing brain and a lethal shot, Eto’o has also had his …
