      Games and Casino Dresses Up for Halloween

      Some people throw sheets over their heads and call themselves ghosts. Some prefer scary rubber masks. Others painstakingly bind and sew and paint and tweak for the most unique blend of absolutely petrifying. Games and Casino goes a different way. Sure, there’s primping and preening and adding and pasting, etc. The finished product, however, is decidedly less scary and definitely more useful. Less like Dracula. More like Casper, the Friendly Ghost. Accepts all Players

      South Carolina Wrestles with Skill vs Chance

      The South Carolina courts are now tasked with another gambling decision: is poker a game of skill or a game of chance? A statute written in 1802 declares all forms of gaming illegal (that is, all games with cards and/or dice), regardless if real money is at stake. Rather than stick with the literal interpretation of the law, the current administration weighs a game’s reliance on chance versus skill. In essence, the more skill-based, the more legal it becomes.

      GamesandCasino declares the Bewinner affiliate program rogue

      Dominique from Gamesandcasino.com has joined many other voices in declaring the Bewinners affiliate program rogue. She says: “I don’t rogue any place easily, but this really takes the cake. There are three situations built into the affiliate contract that allow the program to simply seize all earned monies from the affiliate and effectively stop payments, or, in the mildest case, reduce the percentage to 5 percent. I am sorry, but to me that is outright theft.
