Advantages of Playtech online casinos

Playtech, a Dutch company, emerged at the online gambling software market in 1999 and has become a screaming success since then.

All Playtech casinos have licenses.

What are the benefits of playing in casinos with Playtech software?

First, only respectable companies can afford Playtech software, because it is very expensive – up to several million dollars; much too expensive for petty gambling crooks.

Second, Playtech is not a company which just sells its software and forgets about it. Playtech signs license agreements and keeps a vigilant eye on its licensees’ activity. Should there be lots of complaints about some casino, its license will be revoked – such a casino will lose its money.

Third , licensed casinos can’t change their payoffs.

Fourth, Playtech regularly renews its certificate at world-famous firms, confirming that the algorithms used in its games ensure fair play. The independent International Association of Online Players does audit of the payoffs – they are more than 97.5% on the average.

Games. Their multiplicity is simply stunning. Table games, card games, different kinds of video poker, slot machines – the fabulous variety, more than 60 games in all. Some games even have live dealers!

Have a good time in any online casino you choose. We wish you good luck!

Figures recently released from the Mississippi Department of Revenue (pdf) show that for 2017, revenue across the state fell two percent to $2.08 billion, a decrease of more than $40 million from the year prior. This past December improved, with gamblers forking over $176 million throughout the state, a 3 percent swell from December 2016’s $171 million.\r\n\r\nMississippi’s dozen coastal casinos saw for the first year a less than 1 percent rise to $1.19 billion in 2017, just barely making the plus column for the fourth year in a row for those casinos. December recorded the second-strongest gain for the year, with winnings of $99 million, an increase of 7 percent.\r\n\r\nMeanwhile, the 16 river casinos in the state were in the red for yet another year, having recorded revenue declines every year since 2006 when it peaked. In 2017, revenue was at $885 million a 5 percent decline. The descent wasn’t as severe for December, having fallen only 1.4 percent to $77 million from 2016. Casinos in Lula and Tunica County have suffered in particular over the long term having faced increasing competition from a pair of racetrack casinos in neighboring Arkansas.\r\n\r\nLast year, Mississippi reportedly collected approximately $250 million in gambling taxes. The state, according to accounting firm Rubin Brown, has among states, the third-lowest effective tax rate on casinos, as reported by the Associated Press.\r\n\r\nAccording to the report, figures from 2016 show the Magnolia State was the sixth-largest gambling state across the nation.

In Macau, local police have reportedly arrested a dealer from the Wynn Macau integrated casino resort along with an accomplice over allegations that the pair illegally made off with gambling chips worth approximately $6 million.\r\n\r\nAccording to a Friday report from CNNMoney, the theft by the unidentified duo took place at the giant property operated by the Wynn Macau Limited subsidiary of Las Vegas-based Wynn Resorts Limited on January 16. Authorities have purportedly yet to locate the missing chips despite announcing that they have no additional suspects in the case.\r\n\r\nAlthough police are reportedly unsure as to how the heist was carried out, CNNMoney cited speculation from multiple local media outlets that the pair may have simply placed the lucrative chips into a bag before absconding. It is purportedly assumed that the offenders would have later relied on associates to return to the casino in order to exchange the chips for cash.\r\n\r\nVitaly Umansky, an analyst from brokerage firm Sanford C Bernstein Limited, reportedly told CNNMoney that the incident could eventually lead authorities to ask Wynn Macau Limited, which is moreover responsible for the nearby 1,706-room Wynn Palace Cotai property, to tighten up security inside both of its local casinos.\r\n\r\n“The junkets get a lot of leeway inside the rooms in terms of how money changes hands and how chips change hands,” Umansky reportedly told CNNMoney. “That’s something that may need to get evaluated.”\r\n\r\nCNNMoney reported that this is not the first time that criminals have targeted Wynn Macau Limited, as an incident in 2015 saw an unnamed junket operator claim that it had been scammed out of around $34 million while doing business inside the 1,000-room Wynn Macau.
