STEVE WYNN ON INTERNET POKER
2013-11-26

Land gambling mogul Steve Wynn of Wynn Resorts has come out with an opposing view to that of Sheldon Adelson that online poker should be banned.

Speaking to a Las Vegas Review Journal reporter at a Wynn function this week, Wynn says that uncertainty in Congress makes him unsure of where online poker is going.
Wynn also discussed the new Adelson attack on online gambling through the Coalition to Stop Internet Gambling (see previous InfoPowa reports), observing that "....outlawing online poker is like the Volstead Act where they outlawed beer, a reference to the lack of success in the banning of alcohol in the US in the twenties.
He noted that the authorities can outlaw online gaming but people are going to do it anyway.
I think its questionable whether Sheldon will be able to stop it, which is not to say he is wrong, Wynn said. I just think this sort of thing has a life of its own. Im neither a proponent nor opponent of it, Im an observer of this process and the chairman of a publicly traded company that is required to pay attention to such things.
That said, Wynn admitted that his company has teamed with Caesars Entertainment Corp. in the New Jersey internet gaming market and intends to "stay in the game".
Im not the leader of this parade, Wynn told the LVRJ. The Caesars people are because theyve got the World Series of Poker. I know Gary Loveman (chairman and CEO of Caesars) believes in this as strongly as Sheldon opposes it.
However, Wynn believes that neither Adelson nor Loveman will make the final decision - everybody is going to try to influence the outcome, he predicts.

MULTI-PLATFORM ONLINE POKER COMPANIES AT WAR?
2012-11-02

Over the past two days it has become clear from website notices and message board postings that there is serious conflict between the PIV and Muchos Poker multi-platform referring networks.
Some reports suggest that litigation has already commenced, although the genesis for the dispute is uncertain at present, with confusing informal claims from both sides regarding player deposits, royalties, Interpol involvement, affiliate clashes and company responsibilities for payments.
Industry posters impacted by the dispute report that Muchos has advised them that its contract with PIV was terminated on October 29th, although no reasons were given.
Some reports suggest that PIV shut down Muchos banking facilities a month back to channel player deposits to itself, but this has not been confirmed.
Muchos has apparently stopped promoting the PIV poker platforms and is now promoting a range of its own which includes 888, Boss Media, Instadeal, Ongame, Revolution, Merge and iPoker tiers 1 and 2, with Microgaming listed as a forthcoming attraction.
Several affiliate marketer sites report being told by Muchos Poker that their players would no longer be able to access PIV skins, but that a new and improved range of skins are open to them following the termination of the Muchos-PIVGame partnership at the end of October.
Muchos allegedly recommended that affiliates withdraw their account balances from PIV and persuade their players to sign up with it on terms and conditions similar to those they had previously enjoyed.
Players are again left in the no-man's-land between the warring factions and await more clarity on the issue.
