In order to increase the social elements we give the players the option to type their own text. The current chat options with emoticons and pre defined text fields will remain available. The free chat option is controlled by logging all text which is monitored and other players have the option to mute or notify support if a player is abusing the chat. But we expect that the chat option is giving many players a great (social) addition to the poker experience.

With the latest update we have added a great new poker format: Spin and Play. What is Spin & Play?It is a super fast sit & go format for 3 players, blinds go up every 2 minutes.The game begins when all 3 players are seated at the table.

The player can choose the buy in that suits the balance.

The 2019 Borgata Poker Open (BPO) Event #12: $1,090 Six-Max NLH began with 244 runners including some heavy hitters in the world of poker. On Saturday, just 18 returned to action and it was 24-year-old Canadian IT networking student Kevin Javier coming out on top to win it outright for $62,718.

Here, the Legislature authorized the Governor to execute the tribal-state compacts and specified that such agreements would be "deemed ratified by the legislature upon the governor's certification" that the compacts contained certain provisions (L 2001, ch 383, part B, 2, codified at Executive Law 12 [b]). For example, the Legislature required that the compacts contain assurances that the tribe would provide access to labor unions, an adequate civil recovery system and sufficient liability insurance (see L 2001, ch 383, part B, 2, codified at Executive Law 12 [b]). The Legislature has thus made the necessary policy determinations as to what the tribal-state compacts must contain and has authorized the Governor to implement those policy determinations by executing the compacts to their specifications. This is a permissible delegation of authority. That the legislation does not specify the names of the tribes or where the casinos will be located does not change this determination (see Bourquin v Cuomo, 85 NY2d 781, 785 [1995] ["there need not**5 NY3d at 263 be a specific and detailed legislative expression authorizing a particular executive act as long as 'the basic policy decisions underlying the regulations have been made and articulated by the Legislature' " (citation omitted)]).Video Lottery Gaming

Since the Constitution does not define the term "lottery," we must first determine what constitutes a lottery within the meaning of article I, 9. The Penal Law definition of lotteryconsisting of consideration, chance and prize (see Penal Law 225.00 [10]; People v Hines, 284 NY 93, 101 [1940], overruled on other grounds People v Kohut, 30 NY2d 183, 190-191 [1972]; Trump v Perlee, 228 AD2d 367, 368 [1st Dept 1996])provides little guidance, because, as the Court below recognized, this definition applies equally to all forms of gambling or games of chance. Clearly, the limited constitutional exception for state-run lotteries cannot be read to allow any casino game (such as poker, blackjack or roulette) to constitute a valid lottery if operated by the State. Thus, we agree with the Appellate Division (see 11 AD3d at 92) that a constitutional lottery requires something morespecifically, the use of tickets and multiple participation, as opposed to a single player competing against a single machine.

On October 24 and 25, 2001, the Legislature passed these bills, which became chapter 383 of the Laws of 2001. This case**5 NY3d at 276 involves a challenge to the constitutionality of parts B, C and D of chapter 383. However, for purposes of this opinion, I focus on part B of chapter 383 of the Laws of 2001 which: (1) provides that the Governor "may execute a tribal-state compact with the Seneca Nation of Indians pursuant to [IGRA] consistent with a memorandum of understanding [MOU] between the governor and the president of the Seneca Nation of Indians executed on June [20, 2001]" (Executive Law 12 [a]);[FN6](2) permits the Governor to execute tribal-state gaming compacts "authorizing up to three class III gaming facilities in the counties of Sullivan and Ulster" (Executive Law 12 [b]);[FN7]and (3) provides that, "[p]ossession of a slot machine shall not be unlawful where such possession and use is pursuant to a gaming compact, duly executed by the governor and an Indian tribe or Nation, under [IGRA] . . ." (Penal Law 225.30 [b]).

Although under General Municipal Law 186 (3), other games of chance may be authorized by the Board, the following games, included in the instant Tribal-State Compact, have not been authorized as "games of chance" under New York law: (1) baccarat; (2) carribean stud poker; (3) keno; (4) let it ride poker; (5) minibaccarat; (6) pai gow poker; (7) pai gow tiles; (8) red dog; (9) sic bo; (10) super pan; (11) casino war; (12) spanish blackjack; (13) multiple action blackjack; and (14) three card poker. These games are not permitted to be engaged in for any purpose by any person, organization or entity (see 25 USC 2710 [d] [1] [B]). Accordingly, even if New York State could legally enter into a tribal-state compact, it could refuse to negotiate with the Seneca Nation of Indians regarding the tribe's operation of these unauthorized games (see e.g., Cheyenne Riv. Sioux Tribe v State of S.D., 3 F3d 273 [8th Cir 1993]). Note also that New York State can refuse to negotiate if the Seneca Nation of Indians wants to operate a game that is a variation of the authorized game (id.). Moreover, in light of the article I, 9 limitation to the Legislature's power, the subject matter of part B of chapter 383 clearly falls within the ban on commercialized gaming.

Order modified, etc.[*48]FootnotesFootnote 1: Class III gaming is the most heavily regulated type of gaming under IGRA. The federal regulations give examples of class III gaming "including but not limited to . . . [a]ny house banking game" such as baccarat or blackjack, casino games including roulette or keno, slot machines, sports betting and lotteries (see 25 CFR 502.4).Footnote 2: Indian lands are defined as "all lands within the limits of any Indian reservation; and . . . any lands title to which is either held in trust by the United States for the benefit of any Indian tribe or individual or held by any Indian tribe or individual subject to restriction by the United States against alienation and over which an Indian tribe exercises governmental power" (25 USC 2703 [4]).Footnote 3: Although the portion of the legislative history specifically discussing the prohibitory/regulatory distinction was referring to class II gaming, the applicable language in IGRA is virtually identical with respect to both class II and class III gaming (see 25 USC 2710 [b] [1] [A]; [d] [1] [B] [gaming is located in a state that otherwise "permits such gaming for any purpose by any person, organization or entity"]). There is no persuasive reason to treat the language in these two subsections differently.Footnote 4: The Northern Arapaho court noted that there is a conflict in the interpretation of IGRAwhether a state must negotiate with tribes concerning all forms of class III gaming when it allows any type of class III gaming, or whether it must only negotiate for the specific games permitted in the state (see Northern Arapaho, 389 F3d at 1310-1311). We do not address this issue as the plaintiffs have challenged the authority to enter into tribal-state compacts in general, rather than the authority to negotiate for particular games.Footnote 5: The G.B. Smith dissent suggests that the State was not required to negotiate in good faith as the Legislature was without authority to legislate in this area (see G.B. Smith dissenting op at 285). The constitutional ban on commercial gambling, according to this dissent, cannot be preempted by federal statute and can only be affected through a constitutional amendment. Certainly, if commercial gambling were to be extended to non-Indian lands, the dissent's proposition would be correct, but here we are dealing with the extension of commercial gambling to Indian lands, or lands held in trust by the United States Department of the Interior, to which Congress has seen fit to extend this benefit. This was done with the express intent of protecting Indian sovereignty. The Supremacy Clause of the United States Constitution specifically states that "[t]his Constitution, and the Laws of the United States which shall be made in Pursuance thereof . . . shall be the supreme Law of the Land; and the Judges in every State shall be bound thereby, any Thing in the Constitution or Laws of any State to the contrary notwithstanding" (US Const art VI [2]). Federal law thus preempts even our constitutional ban. This is particularly true in the context of Indian matters, where a traditional exemption from state law will be "lifted only when Congress has made its intention to do so unmistakably clear" (Montana v Blackfeet Tribe, 471 US 759, 765 [1985] [referring to Indian exemption from state taxes]).Footnote 6: We note that the United States Supreme Court recently addressed whether the Oneida Indian Nation was responsible for property taxes on certain property purchased on land that was once an Oneida reservation (see City of Sherrill v Oneida Indian Nation of N.Y., 544 US 197, , 125 S Ct 1478, 1482-1483 [2005]). The Court determined that the Oneidas could not "unilaterally reassert sovereign control and remove these parcels from the local tax rolls" and that the Tribe would have to follow the procedure set forth in 25 USC 465, which "authorizes the Secretary of the Interior to acquire land in trust for Indians and provides that the land 'shall be exempt from State and local taxation' " (City of Sherrill, 544 US at , 125 S Ct at 1493). This holding is consistent with our interpretation of IGRA, allowing the Secretary and the Governor to authorize gaming on lands held in trust by the Secretary after determining such gaming would not be detrimental to the surrounding community (see 25 USC 2719 [b] [1] [A]).Footnote 7: The only other game offered for video lottery play is electronic keno, which is modeled after the current Lotto and Quick Draw lotteries and involves multiple players selecting a series of numbers, colors or symbols in hopes of matching their selections to those later randomly drawn by the central system.Footnote 8: Indeed, although plaintiffs contend that VLTs fit within the Penal Law definition of a slot machine, as "a gambling device which, as a result of the insertion of a coin or other object, operates, either completely automatically or with the aid of some physical act by the player, in such manner that, depending upon elements of chance, it may eject something of value" (Penal Law 225.00 [8]), the definition of "[g]ambling device" specifically excludes lottery tickets and other items used to play a lottery (see Penal Law 225.00 [7]).Footnote 9: The Attorney General opinions relied on by plaintiffs in support of their argument that the video lottery is not a lottery are inapposite (see 1981 Ops Atty Gen 68; 1984 Ops Atty Gen No. 84-F1). The 1981 opinion addressed and found unconstitutional proposed video games, such as computer poker and blackjack, that did not involve multiple participation, electronic tickets, or predetermined identification of winning tickets based on random selection. Rather, those games involved a single player pitting his or her skill against a machine. The 1984 opinion involved a proposal by the Division of the Lottery to permit betting on the outcome of professional sports events, which involves an element of skill in picking the winning team or predicting the outcome of the game.Footnote 10: This section was amended in 2003 to change the distribution of revenue to allot 10% to the Division and 29% to the track operator as a vendor's fee. The portion of the vendor's fee dedicated to enhancing purses was changed to 25.9% for the first three years, 26.7% for the next two years and 34.5% for each year after that. The percentage of the vendor's fee contributed to the breeding fund was also changed to 4.3% for the first five years and 5.2% for each subsequent year (L 2003, ch 63, part W, 2, 3).Footnote 11: The recent amendment removes the revenue distribution provisions that required portions of the vendor's fee to be allocated to enhancing purses and an appropriate breeding fund. The new statute increases the vendor's fee to "thirty-two percent for the first fifty million dollars annually, twenty-nine percent for the next hundred million dollars annually, and twenty-six percent thereafter" (L 2005, ch 61, part CC, 2, amending Tax Law 1612 [b]). The legislation further provides for "an additional vendor's marketing allowance . . . to be used by the vendor track for the marketing and promotion and associated costs of its video lottery gaming operations" (L 2005, ch 61, part CC, 2).Footnote 12: In this regard, defendants contend that in recent years, since the New York racetracks, facing declining revenues, have been unable to offer large enough purses to attract quality horses, the top horses have been drawn instead to races in other states. Because high-quality horses lead to better-quality racing which in turn attracts more spectators, fewer people have been coming to the New York tracks to bet, resulting in less money spent from which to pay purses, attracting fewer players still. Similarly, breeding funds are used in part to improve the quality of the horses that are bred, and therefore raced, here in New York (see Saratoga Harness Racing Assn. v Agriculture & N.Y. State Horse Breeding Dev. Fund, 22 NY2d 119, 123 [1968] [breeding funds are "the instrument through which the Legislature has chosen to effectuate (the) legitimate public interest and purpose" of applying a portion of the revenues from racing to the "general improvement of the sport and the facilities used"]).Footnote 13: Part C set the vendor's fee at between 12% and 25% of the total revenue wagered less the amount paid for prizes (see L 2001, ch 383, part C, 2). Since the prize payout is to be no less than 90% of total sales (see L 2001, ch 383, part C, 2), the fee amounts to between 1.2% and 2.5% of gross sales.Footnote 14: The initial capital investment and continued operating costs of offering video lottery gaming can be significant. The vendor must provide space for the terminals, install and maintain them, and provide increased staff, parking and security for the VLT area. Finger Lakes Racetrack, for example, anticipated its costs of construction, new employees and a variety of other improvements to be nearly $11 million, none of which would be incurred by the State.Footnote 15: The 2003 amendment increased the vendor's fee to 29% of total revenue wagered less the amount paid for prizesor 2.9% of gross sales (see L 2003, ch 63, part W, 3). The 2005 amendment has increased the vendor's fee to between 2.6% and 3.2% of gross sales, varying as the revenue increases (see L 2005, ch 61, part CC, 2).Footnote 16: The other states are Georgia, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Virginia, New Jersey, Ohio and Washington.Footnote 17: For example, the Virginia Lottery maintains the grand prize funds and the Georgia Lottery Corporation conducts the actual drawing.Footnote 18: Other courts have addressed the constitutionality of a state's participation in a multistate lottery (see State ex rel. Ohio Roundtable v Taft, 2003 WL 21470307, 2003 Ohio App LEXIS 3042 [2003], appeal not allowed 100 Ohio St 3d 1484, 798 NE2d 1093 [2003]; Tichenor v Missouri State Lottery Commn., 742 SW2d 170 [Mo 1988]). Ohio Roundtable specifically addressed the propriety of the Mega Millions agreement against a state constitutional provision allowing "an agency of the state to conduct lotteries" (Ohio Const, art XV, 6; see Ohio Roundtable, 2003 WL 21470307, *3, 2003 Ohio App LEXIS 3042, *9). The court did not find any significant difference between the State contracting with private entities to implement its in-state lottery games and contracting with other states to implement Mega Millions (Ohio Roundtable, 2003 WL 21470307, *6, 2003 Ohio App LEXIS 3042, *18). Ohio retained a sufficient amount of control over the lotterysince it was conducted in accordance with the State's regulationsto satisfy the Ohio Constitution (see Ohio Roundtable, 2003 WL 21470307, *8, 2003 Ohio App LEXIS 3042, *21; see also Tichenor, 742 SW2d at 174).Footnote 1: In August 2002, pursuant to part B of chapter 383, a compact was purportedly entered into by New York State and the Seneca Nation of Indians, resulting in the establishment of the Seneca Niagara Casino and Seneca Allegany Casino. Because the subject legislation authorized the Governor to negotiate and enter into a compact, on behalf of New York State, resulting in the establishment of casinos that conduct gaming prohibited under New York law, this compact must be deemed unenforceable. Moreover, in the absence of a valid compact, the class III casino-style gaming conducted at these facilities is not lawful (see 25 USC 2710 [d] [1] [C]; Seminole Tribe of Fla. v Florida, 517 US 44 [1996]).
