The World Series Of Poker 2021 Season Schedule Released 

casino gamesPoker lovers had to wait for almost two years to receive the schedule of the World Series of Poker. In early 2020, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, they had to face the cancellation of live events and tournament schedules. In the summer of 2019, it was the last time the Casino and Rio All-Suite Hotel in Las Vegas had welcomed gamblers for the World Series of Poker. Since then, it has made players feel like they have not played for ages. 

The WSOP executives on the 1st of April 2021 have announced that live events would be there this year. For Las Vegas, it will start from the 30th of September and will continue till the 23rd of November, and for WSOP Europe (Rozvadov), it will begin from the 19th of November to the 8th of December. Additionally, some online events will also take place this year. 

Even though the pandemic is there, vaccination has reduced the number of cases and deaths taking place worldwide. Considering the situation, making arrangements for the tournament was not so easy. As the situation is under control and every aspect is fine with the Nevada Gaming Control Board, the Las Vegas schedule has been released by the World Series of Poker. In total, 88 gold bracelet events will be there. 

In 2021, the event will start with the famous “$10,000 No-Limit Hold ’em World Championship,” also known as the Main Event. In 2019, it had 8000 entrants, and the number went high for the second time in history. The Rio Convention Center of 200000 square feet will host a wide range of tournaments. It includes different poker variations from a different price, like $400 to $250000. 

The Main Event has four starting flights from the 4th of November to the 7th of November. The playthrough of the tournament will continue the Main Event on the 16th and 17th of November. 

DraftKings With DK Craps Will Expand Mobile Casino Gaming 

Casino SecurityThis sportsbook is ready to expand its casino gaming verticals, developing its casino gaming app. It allowed gamblers to gamble on their favorite slots from anywhere on their system with access to the internet. Considering the way iGaming is expanding, the brand has decided to roll out DK Craps as a part of casino games in the market of New Jersey. 

After getting regulatory approval, the DK craps will also be available to Michigan, Pennsylvania, and West Virginia. DK Craps is famous and is the newest addition in the iGaming industry which already has 500 other titles. 

In this list, 50 games have been designed by the game developers of DraftKings in-house. The vice president of DraftKings, Jason March, said that being the most realistic craps game in the present scenario, they are eager to provide the best quality experience with the top-rated casino product. According to designers, it is a difficult game to develop as players can take endless paths. But the vice-president is proud of the team to launch such a game that will offer an amazing experience to whoever tries it.

Historical Horse Racing Machines: NH Authorizes This Slot 

Online Horse Racing Straight BetsThere is good news for all citizens interested in gambling, as they can soon get access to the in-person betting option. Recently, a bill was signed by Gov. Chris Sununu to legalize historical horse racing (HHR) in the state. By that, NH will become the latest state to provide something similar to that. It is similar to Class II electronic bingo machines, video lottery terminals, and different kinds like skill machines. All these devices will accept and cash out real money and feature spinning reels which bettors think will form winning patterns. 

In the past, several other states have also tried to authorize HHR. But it has proven to be controversial in almost all cases. However, NH does not need to fight as the Senate and House have passed House Bill 626. 

The bill comprises nine sponsors with three Senators and six House Representatives. The efforts were bipartisan, with the breakdown among sponsors being four Democrats to five Republicans. In January, the lawmakers introduced the bill, following which, in April, it was introduced in the senate. After this, it went on to the Government Sununu’s desk just a month later.

New Hampshire: Exacta Systems to Lead 

After legalizing sports betting in 2019 and being awarded the DraftKings Sportsbook monopoly, it is the second time the state is expanding its gambling choices. The same model is not followed for HHR, and every location can pick its vendor. But, presently, Exacta Systems have confirmed participating in the market. 

Following this, at the charitable gaming facilities of the state, other vendors and Exacta can now install systems. It is counted as casinos, but when compared to commercial casinos, they do not offer a wide range of games. It resembles more like poker rooms with similar options like table games but no slots. However, the HHR machines will help in filling the void.
