WPN Upgrades the Online Poker Industry with Major InnovationsReading Time: 2 minutes

 

The Winning Poker Network (WPN) has been hard at work reinvigorating the online poker industry, which has become somewhat stale in recent years. By embracing technological innovations like cryptocurrencies, introducing new games like Six Plus Hold’em, and catering to high rollers, WPN is offering poker players a better experience and delivering more traffic for its affiliate partners.

“The online poker industry has been languishing some, but we’ve got the prescription to help the game thrive again and that’s innovation,” stated Michael Harris, WPN Affiliates spokesman.

WPN processed its first Bitcoin transaction in 2015 and now accepts over 60 different cryptocurrencies for deposits and withdrawals. Despite accounting for just 2% of business in the first year, cryptos now represent a whopping 60% of all transactions across the network.

Cryptocurrencies are instrumental in driving traffic and increasing player value.  Bitcoin and other options are also dramatically cheaper to process.  Compared to traditional banking methods which cost 13% on average to process, cryptocurrencies cost sites just 2%.

Although traditional Texas Hold’em does have its share of defenders, attracting new fans has been difficult for online card rooms in 2018.  With an abundance of instructional material available online, the games have become tougher and less appealing for recreational players. By evolving alongside the game and offering new variants like Six Plus Hold’em, WPN is able to appeal to new and recreational players.

With no 2 through 5 cards in the deck and modified hand rankings, Six Plus Hold’em players can expect bigger hands, more action, and larger pots.  WPN sites are proud to offer Six Plus Hold’em for both tournaments and cash games.

WPN is embracing high rollers by hosting frequent $1,000,000 GTD tournaments with a $2,650 buy-in.  Designed for high rollers who have seen their VIP rewards cut by competing online poker rooms, these tourneys have amassed a huge following in just a few short weeks. While they were originally designed to be temporary, the big turnout means they will become a regular staple on the Sunday schedule.

While many poker sites consider high stakes players to be undesirable, WPN welcomes them with open arms in other ways.  The site’s new $50/$100 7-day no-rathole tables are a favorite of players with deep pockets, but they’re also popular with railbirds who love watching players build six-figure stacks. 7-day no rathole tables feature a 10 big blind buy-in and require players who return within a week to come back with the same amount they left with.

Breaking News: Dutch Senate votes to legalize online gambling

The Netherlands Senate voted today in favor of the country’s long-awaited online gaming legislation, which was approved by the House of Representatives back in 2014.

The new regulatory regime will allow operators to secure online sports betting and casino gaming licenses to serve Dutch consumers, subject to secondary legislation that is yet to be submitted for European Commission approval.

Today, the Dutch Senate voted in favor of legislation to legalize internet-based gambling, clearing the way for foreign and Dutch firms to apply for licenses.

On Monday, the Financieele Dagblad said some 300 companies have expressed interest in running a gambling website in the Netherlands and about 50 are expected to make a formal application for a license when they are up for grabs next year. Tuesday’s vote comes two years after the lower house voted in favor of allowing third parties to legally offer online gambling.

Holland Casino is the Netherlands’ only state-regulated gambling establishment but foreign firms widely flout the ban and continue to target Dutch punters.

The two Christian parties in the ruling coalition voted against the legislation. They claim allowing more companies to offer online betting will lead to more problems with addiction.

Bangladesh bans online gambling websitesReading Time: 1 minute

 

Bangladesh Telecommunication Regulatory Commission (BTRC) has asked all the internet gateway providers and Telecom department to run an internet safety solution programme to block online gambling websites. BTRC is believed to have received an instruction to effect the same from the country’s government.

The telecom regulator has sent the order to block the websites so that these websites will not be accessible in Bangladesh again.

“It might take few more hours to block all the sites completely as blocking any site is so technical,” said Md Emdadul Hoque, general secretary of Internet Service Provider Association of Bangladesh (ISPAB).

A top official of the BTRC said they have often found complaints from different sides about online gambling and that needs to block for the sake of safe internet.
