Another Microgaming Bingo room is set to launch at the end of this year. Yes, you are correct, right at the eve of Christmas. Back2School Bingo, a member of the Fortune Lounge Group is set to give online bingo players a new and original online bingo room at when it launches at the beginning of next month.
Being featured on the Microgaming network and a member of the Fortune Lounge Group of online brands, Back2School Bingo will undoubtedly have the advantage of the credibility of this bingo network and online group behind its name – assuring secure online bingo play for all.
There are the standard deposit offers that players can take advantage of: the 200% first deposit bonus and the 25% recurring deposit bonus. Plus players will be able to participate in a whole range of exciting weekly and monthly promotions.
This online bingo room is built on the concept of going back to the basics of online bingo and offers players the simplest way to play this highly popular game.
90-Ball bingo will be the only form of bingo offered at this new online bingo room and will offer four network rooms from which to play namely, Friendship, Sunshine, Speed and Harmony.
An important element to this online bingo room is that players are given the opportunity to play within a multi-currency setting, therefore a player can deposit in their currency of choice but when they join a room there is an automatic conversion of their balance into that room’s currency – making this game available on a global scale.
Online casino players will also be able to play all their favourite casino games at Back2School Bingo including slots, blackjack, video poker and roulette.
The simple premise surrounding Back2School Bingo is definitely going to work in its favour and with about two weeks to go until the launch, players will be taken back to the basics of what makes this game so entertaining.

You might have read the launch stories of Costa Bingo and Sing Bingo on Online Gambling Casino News. Now the same folks who were behind those two mega bingo rooms are about to launch their new brainchild, and the name of their new bingo website is “City Bingo”.
The City Bingo website is powered by the highly regarded Brigend online bingo software, which is a sister company of the very trustworthy Cassava Enterprises. This company is behind numerous online bingo sites that have established themselves as the leading bingo rooms within the UK bingo market.
Just like the Costa and Sing bingo sites, City Bingo will have lots of free online bingo games playing in their bingo rooms with real cash prizes up for grabs.
The City Bingo room will offer players the chance to play two bingo variants; the 75 ball and 90 ball bingo games plus a vast selection of instant games, casino games and slot games. New players who sign up with City Bingo will enjoy a 200% first deposit bonus, meaning a small £10 deposit will have players playing online bingo in no time with £30.
On top of that, players will be able to take part in the First Depositor Freebie game that will grant them admission to free online bingo games for the next 24 hours. These free bingo games have guaranteed jackpots worth £10 each. Future deposits at City Bingo are entitled to more reload bonuses and access to other free bingo games with higher cash prizes at stake.
We did have the opportunity to take a sneak peek inside the City Bingo room and we have to admit, it stands formidable for rest of the bingo websites. Not so much about their games, but very much so for their fantastic design, a super cool logo and the very friendly mascot of City the Cat. We truly expect City Bingo to make real inroads in the UK Bingo market and establish itself as an outstanding bingo platform.
All the best wishes for City Bingo from Online Casino Gambling News editors.
Another UB Patch Hits the Felt at the NAPT This Friday as Newest Member Maria Ho Looks to Continue Live Tournament Success.
If you think poker is just another boys’ club, UB.com wants you to seriously think again. The online poker site today welcomes notable, accomplished, and highly respected female poker pro Maria Ho to Team UB, joining its roster that’s stacked with successful professional poker players.
At the 2010 World Series of Poker, UB.com signed former Playmate Shanna Moakler and adult entertainment star Samantha Ryan to a sponsorship deal.
Ho joins Annie Duke and Tiffany Michelle in the online poker site’s line-up of talented female pros.
This is not the first time female poker players from the adult entertainment industry have hit on UB.com.
The 27-year-old pro was born in Taipei, Taiwan and moved to Los Angeles with her family when she was four years old. She graduated from the University of California, San Diego in 2005 with a degree in Communications and a minor in Law and Society.
Ho maintains a dual citizenship and is fluent in Mandarin Chinese.
She will be blogging, writing articles and posting videos in both English and Mandarin Chinese at UB.com so she can reach out to online players in both languages.
New Jersey State Senator Raymond J. Lesniak’s attempt to legalize online gambling in the state has made significant progress. In an attempt to stem the tide of declining casino profits and lower tax revenues, the New Jersey State Senate Budget and Appropriations Committee overwhelmingly approved a measure that would allow state residents to play in online casinos managed by the struggling Atlantic City casino resort properties.
State Senator Ray Lesniak has proposed the bill, labeled S490, as a way to remedy the state’s economic woes. Yesterday his bill, S490 and its companion S11, were approved by the Senate Budget and Appropriations Committee and they await a full Senate vote.
S-490 would authorize the state’s Atlantic City casinos to offer online versions of their games to New Jersey and also to international customers. The bill is meant to bridge the state’s budget gap and support the state’s flailing horse racing industry. The Interactive Media Entertainment and Gaming Association (iMEGA) estimate that New Jersey’s intrastate gambling system could raise up to $250 million in gross revenue and $55 million in taxes per year. According to the text of the bill, the games that casinos would be allowed to offer online include:
[Roulette] Poker, roulette, baccarat, blackjack, craps, big six wheel, slot machines, minibaccarat, red dog, pai gow, and sic bo; any variations or composites of such games, provided that such variations or composites, and any above listed game or variation or composite of such game to be offered through Internet wagering,
The senate committee passed the bill by a vote of 10 to 1. Political observers expect the bill to pass sometime early in 2011. If and when it does, New Jersey will become the first US state to allow online gambling within its borders.
While it shouldn’t have taken a budget crisis to move this forward and the state should not be subsidizing the horse racing industry, it is a step toward freedom for individuals who wish to gamble. If other states follow New Jersey’s lead and legalized Internet gambling within their borders, states could enter into agreements that allow residents to gamble online at each other’s online casinos. It isn’t perfect, but it is better than a blanket ban.
The British company Betfair may be moving out of UK.
Online casino laws in the United Kingdom are very liberal and as a result the online gaming industry is booming in the UK and is a small contributor of UK economy. At one time there were over 15,000 betting shops in the UK. Now, through consolidation, they have been reduced to about 8,500. Recently however, the country has taken a hit, and some of the industry’s giants have taken their operations and moved to Gibraltar where the tax rate is 10% lower than in the UK.
It started last year with (In 2009) William Hill moved its online and fixed-odds games division to Gibraltar, for tax avoidance purposes. They moved their operations to Gibraltar and were able to save 10% annually. Ladbrokes were not far behind when they packed up right after.
Rumour now has it that the world’s largest online betting exchange, Betfair Group is considering doing the same thing. David Yu, the Chief Executive at Betfair said that the company would consider moving out of the UK if the government didn’t relax a bit with the gambling taxes. The government has been in negotiations with the company in hopes of convincing them to stay in the UK but it would have to compromise seemingly quite a bit in order to convince the gambling giants to stay in the country.
Over the last few months, the government has been trying to negotiate with Betfair online casino. Perhaps one area that may be negotiable is the type of advertising Betfair can run within the UK. The advertising gambling laws in the UK are very strict and may be harder to move than lowering the gambling tax.
Either way, all three of these giants are interested in moving on to the US market as soon as US legislation allows. Even though current US law does not allow online casino gambling in the country, the US remains one of the biggest online gaming markets in the world today.
