This week on the gambling podcast, we are talking about some of the biggest news in gambling. First, we discuss Dan Bilzerian’s huge jackpot win at GGPoker. Then, we move on to talk about gambling in Massachusetts and the recent news from Lotto Quebec. Finally, we wrap up with a few other stories from around the gambling world. So tune in and hear all the latest news!
Loto Quebec has entered the partnership with the Red Tiger games that will make it the first Canadian lottery provider to offer content from this established studio. This is good news for Loto Quebec players as they will now be able to play hit games such as Gonzo’s Quest Megaways, Dog House Megaways, Primate King, Piggy Riches Megaways, and Cash Volt. The agreement also includes Red Tiger’s lucrative and popular progressive jackpot mechanics.
Red Tiger, now owned by Evolution, has been very busy this year. They’ve already made several significant deals, including the partnership with Scandinavian operator ATG and UK-based online casino MrQ. Earlier this year, Red Tiger also partnered up with Gamintec, one of the leading providers of online betting and casino platforms.
Tulalip Resort Casino pays out the biggest jackpot in its history. Last week, a self-employed painter from Lynwood, Jose Lopez, hit the life-changing jackpot worth almost $2.4 million, more than doubling the previous record. Lopez not only took home the biggest prize in the casino’s history, but his reward is also the largest ever in the state of Washington.
The lucky winner nailed the jackpot while playing the Golden Charms slot machine. This is also the machine that paid out the previous casino jackpot record. Lopez later said that it’s not one of his favorite slots, and he only decided to try his luck after being talked into it by his girlfriend. So, the obvious lesson here is that we should all listen to our better halves.
The latest news from Massachusetts provides some encouragement to local bettors. The Bay State is still among those who haven’t legalized sports betting, but the tide seems to be turning.
The latest survey, conducted by News Service, shows that the sentiment among the state’s legislators is changing. According to the results, 60% of Senate members are in favor of making betting legal. In addition, the House voted 156-3 last summer to back the Massachusetts sports betting proposal.
Massachusetts Governor, Charlie Baker, is also a strong supporter of the legislative change in this area. With his kind of support, the opportunity to place legal sports wagers in-state may be closer than ever, but there’s still a long way to go.
it seems that Dan Bilzerian will remain the brand ambassador for one of the leading online poker organizations in the world, GGPoker. This happens amid the recent controversy involving this actor-turned-poker player.
Dan Bilzerian’s role at GGPoker mainly involves engaging new players and boosting the popularity of the brand, which he’s been successful at thanks to his large following. However, he recently came under scrutiny due to his playboy lifestyle and the way he treats women.
He’s also been frequently involved in Twitter feuds with various public personas, most notably the Canadian female poker player, Vanessa Kade. After criticizing Bilzerian, Kade’s comments have been blocked by GGPoker, prompting the Twitter community to accuse the company of hypocrisy and duplicitous behavior. However, GGPoker argued that they can’t be responsible for their ambassadors’ private life.
