WagerWeb's Stephanie Wynters Nominated for Best Affiliate Manager Sports Betting

WagerWeb.com’s Stephanie Wynters has been around the online gambling industry from a while now and all her hard work is beginning to pay off.  She just made the short list at the iGB Affiliate Awards 2014 so let's get her some votes!

Everleaf Poker Should Never Have Been Allowing Washington State Citizens to Play

We have finally learned after days of speculation that Everleaf Poker’s woes come from transmitting funds for online poker to and from the state of Washington.  It is the only state in the U.S. to make playing Internet poker a Class C felony and has done so since 2009 when the investigation into a payment processor utilized by Everleaf had commenced.

Simon English of the London Evening Standard: "Here's the usual plot for the World Cup: England get hugely hyped by the press, fans and players before they go on to perform indifferently in all but one game, which they still contrive to lose.
