Public Goes Bonkers on Bovada Over Tech Glitch

Bovada, an online gambling platform, experienced a technical issue that prevented users from logging in and placing bets. The issue was reported by several users, expressing frustration and concern over the inconvenience caused. Bovada acknowledged the problem and assured users that they were working to resolve it. The issue was resolved after a few hours, and Bovada apologized for the inconvenience. Some users reported additional issues, such as not receiving deposit bonuses or payments for winning bets, and requested compensation for the inconvenience caused by the technical issue.

Some of the tweets:

"Nah bovada owe us a bonus this ridiculous I tried to place a bet 5 times and it wouldn't go through and the shit cashed."

"i was logged in and went to make a number of bets and the site would not take them. This is always costing me money."

"Any plan to compensate for errored bets? You should have record of attempted bets that were missed because of the error."

"we can’t even make bets on the site! Fix this shit!!!"

Some players reported receiving a bonus for the inconvenience.

"Bovada gave me $100 for them being down we cool again !"

The issue appears to be resolved as of Monday,

CFL Tells Canadian Government to 'Butt Out' in Quest to Institute Gambling Ad Ban

Canada's parliament is considering a bill that would limit or potentially ban gambling ads. The commissioner of the Canadian Football League sent a letter to his country's parliament essentially telling it to butt out.

The league sent the following letter to the senate’s standing committee on transport and communications:

Dear Mr. Wilson:

On behalf of the Canadian Football League (CFL), I want to express my gratitude to the Standing Senate Committee on Transport and Communications for its invitation to participate in itsexamination of Bill S-269, the National Framework on Advertising for Sports Betting Act.

Unfortunately, the committee’s hearings coincide with the kickoff of our league’s regular season, which requires me to attend several games across the country to meet with our clubs, their partners, and our fans. It is one of our busiest times of the year, along with Grey Cup, of course. My apologies for not being able to participate in person.

However, given the importance of this issue and our respect for your role, I am sharing this written submission on behalf of the CFL with you. I trust you will find it helpful in your work.

Thank you for your attention to this important matter, your contributions to the legislative process, and your service o Canada.

Yours in Football,

Randy Ambrosie
Canadian Football League

Joe Biden Crisis

Prominent House Dems Want Biden to Exit: Biden Gains in Odds With Move to +350

More than a handful of House Democratic ranking members told House Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries in a Sunday call that President Joe Biden needs to step aside from the 2024 campaign, according to sources familiar with the call.

Jeffries held the call to take the temperature of ranking members after Biden’s dismal debate performance last month. The call, held before lawmakers return to Washington this week, was filled with deep concern about potential damage to the Democratic ticket and how it imperils the party’s chances to win back the House majority.

Jeffries did not share with his colleagues where he stands on the question of whether Biden should continue running for reelection, a source who was on the call told CNN.

France Election Shocker

If you had the far right to win in France this weekend, sorry.

France's snap legislative elections on Sunday showed the leftist New Popular Front leading both Macron's ruling party and the right-wing National Rally but falling short of an absolute majority, according to Ipsos Talan projections. One of the coalition's leaders, Jean-Luc Mélenchon of the far-left France Unbowed party, urged Macron to invite them to form a government, saying the alliance “is ready to govern". Read our liveblog to see how all the day's events unfolded.

Voters delivered a major setback for Marine Le Pen's nationalist, eurosceptic National Rally (RN), which opinion polls had predicted would win the second-round ballot but ended up in the third spot, according to pollsters' projections.


Bitcoin Falls  

Over $170 Billion Wiped Off Cryptocurrencies as Market Tanks on Mt. Gox Bitcoin Payout Fears

Bitcoin’s price fell under $55,000 for the first time since February.  It recovered a bit on Saturday, climbing above the $58,000 mark.

At one point in time, the entire cryptocurrency market shed more than $170 billion in combined market capitalization in the last 24 hours.

On Friday, the trustee for the Mt. Gox bankruptcy estate said it had begun making repayments in bitcoin and bitcoin cash to some of the creditors.

The trustee for the Mt. Gox bankruptcy estate, Nobuaki Kobayashi, says he is still working to ensure repayments “can be made safely and securely,” Kobayashi wrote, urging “eligible rehabilitation creditors to wait for a while.”

Mt. Gox was one the leading crypto exchange, handling over 70% of bitcoin transactions in the early years.  Customers have waited nearly ten years for payments following a 2014 hacking that led the cryptocurrency exchange into bankruptcy.   At one point it handled nearly 70% of all bitcoin transactions.

News of the repayments added selling pressure on bitcoin and the broader crypto market after Mt. Gox announced last month.
