Three payment processors have been accused of miscoding gaming transactions and funneling that money to online casinos and sportsbooks in grand jury indictments unsealed last week in Utah.

The companies have been charged with money laundering, bank fraud, racketeering conspiracy and violation of the Wire Act. BetUS has been charged with conspiring with the payment processors. The indictment also alleges that at least one U.S. bank official had been bribed to ensure that the transactions were mislabeled.  read more
Rebecca's RecommendationsRebecca's Recommendations

Anyway, throughout the course of this past week, a large number of my online gaming contacts asked me if I was able to find my phone (for those of you who did not actually see me flip out, I "misplaced" my cheap little international phone when I was slightly intoxicated one night in Amsterdam).

PokerStars to deal 10-billionth handPokerStars to deal 10-billionth hand
It's like the lottery, only better. PokerStars is getting ready to deal its 10-billionth hand, and it's giving away $1 million to mark the occasion. To put the number in perspective, the earth's population is 6.5 billion.

Just last summer, PokerStars celebrated dealing its 5-billionth hand, and they're going to double that mark in less than 12 months. I know what you're thinking, that's a lot of rake money. Luckily, PokerStars has decided to give some of it back.

The winner of the 10-billionth hand will receive $100,000 and every player at the celebratory table will receive $10,000.  read more
