Reading Time: 1 minute

Japan’s Upper House has passed the Basic Bill on Gambling Addiction Counter measures, which is seen as the first step for the subsequent passing of the Integrated Resort (IR) Implementation Bill. The IR bill will pave the way for casinos to operate in the country.

The gambling addiction bill was passed by a vote of 183-46.

However, the Upper House added 11 supplementary resolutions to the bill in the process including requirements for more research into the negative impact of problem gambling, an increase in education campaigns to boost the awareness of services for gamblers and various requirements covering both gaming operators and local governments in providing measures to combat problem gambling and its effects.

Friday’s Diet session also saw Japan’s House of Councillors open talks on the IR Implementation Bill, which the LDP is looking to pass before the end of the extended session on 22 July. The IR Implementation Bill is set to approve the construction of three integrated resorts in Japan.

Police has busted an illegal online sports betting network, allegedly operated by underworld honchos, in southern Vietnam. The police has arrested the ringleader and nine of his accomplices too.

The police has also seised three high-end cars along with billions of dong and foreign currency, as police raided locations in Ho Chi Minh City, Tay Ninh and Binh Duong.

The leader of the ring was 36-year-old Nguyen Van Binh, police said.

Hundreds of officers belonging to the municipal police force and the Ministry of Public Security raided a coffee shop in HCMC’s District 12 on Wednesday night and arrested Binh, who they said had been running an online betting ring through a website since 2014.

They confiscated several online devices containing evidence of illegal betting apart from cash and other assets.

Binh and his accomplices had rich family backgrounds and were big names in the Saigon underworld, police said. The transactions the ring was involved in over the past five years ran into hundreds of billions of dong, police said.

The illegal gambling ring was being investigated further, they added.

Organizing sports betting remains illegal in Vietnam but various operations have been busted during the World Cup season.

Just a week ago, an illegal online betting ring worth over VND2 trillion ($89 million) was busted and at least 10 people arrested in several cities and provinces.

Last month, another online gambling ring using the web portal 12bet was busted. Four suspects were arrested and a total of over VND300 million in cash, computers and phones were seised.

Baadshah Gaming Joins Hands With the Asian Poker Tour
Reading Time: 2 minutes

PANJIM, India, July 16, 2018 / — In a bid to expose the ever-growing poker community in India to more international tournaments, the Casino Pride group backed online poker site Baadshah Gaming, has joined hands with the Philippines-based Asian Poker Tour (APT). Baadshah Gaming will conduct online satellites giving Indian poker enthusiasts the opportunity to win tournament packages to various upcoming APT events in the Asia-Pacific region.

The Asian Poker Tour is the biggest and most-coveted poker tour in Asia. Since its inception in 2008, APT has grown by leaps and bounds, adding multiple destinations in its yearly tournament roster. With the aim of popularizing poker as a poker sport across the Asia Pacific region, APT has held events in Macau, Philippines, South Korea, Vietnam, Cambodia, Australia even taking the game to far-flung tiny French colony of New Caledonia. To date, the APT has staged more than 80 major events and numerous smaller tournaments mainly in the Asia-Pacific Region. APT events combined have generated over USD 30 million in prize money, all awarded to players.

Commenting on APT’s tie-up with Baadshah Gaming, the Executive Tournament Director of the Asian Poker Tour, Lloyd S. Fontillas said, “The goal of the partnership is to increase the presence of the Indian players at each and every APT event and we believe with Baadshah Gaming having the capabilities of running both online and land based qualifiers, this will happen!”

Baadshah Gaming which began operations in March 2017 is an online portal that offers poker and other games of skill. In June 2017, Goa’s Casino Pride group bought a stake in Oceanking Software Solutions LLP, the company that owns and operates the Baadshah Gaming brand. As part of the deal, the start-up has gained access to run and operate the ‘Baadshah Gaming Live’ property on board the Casino Pride vessel in Panjim, Goa. With this, they are able to host a variety of live gaming tournaments, bringing poker players from all over the country to show-off their poker skills. Baadshah Gaming had held its own live tournament series at its live property in Goa in December 2017 and April 2018 which was very well received by the Indian poker community. The two Baadshah Gaming Live Tournaments paid out over 1.7 crores in prize money with tournament buy-ins as low as Rs. 10000.

“In line with our aim to promote poker as a game of skill in India, we are excited to team up with the prestigious Asian Poker Tour,” said Madhav Gupta, co-founder of Baadshah Gaming. “We believe that this partnership will benefit the Indian poker community in multiple ways, the best of which is that it will give both amateurs and professionals alike, the opportunity to test their skills against the very best poker players in the Asian circuit. It is every poker player’s dream to win a prestigious title like the Asian Poker Tour, and now that dream can be made a reality by simply winning small buy in satellites on Baadshah Gaming and flying out to various APT tournament series across South East Asia.”

As a result of the agreement, Baadshah Gaming will be the official APT partner in India, and will be providing Indian players the ability to take part in the Asian Poker Tour events at a fraction of the cost through satellites packages, both live and online. Poker players can play online satellites on http://www.baadshahgaming.com, while live satellites will be conducted at the Baadshah Gaming Live venue on board Casino Pride in Panjim, Goa.
