It is the middle of summer according to some but there is not much happening in the online casino news at the moment apart from financial reporting from the likes of Ladbrokes and 888 and they are both doing rather well and both trying to improve their online offering including the online casinos. Ladbrokes casino in particular has been in the news very recently for introducing some of the NetEnt casino games onto the Ladbrokes casino platform alongside the Playtech games already offered. Casinos.ie has long been a fan of the NetEnt casino games with a great range of slots which are that bit different but of course Irish casino players already have access to the range through All Irish Casino, www.allirishcasino.ie which remains number one on the casinos.ie recommended list. CEO of Ladbrokes Mr Richard Glynn also promises “further enhancements to come in the coming months“ so we wait and see. Meanwhile in the general casino news in Ireland everything revolves around new legislation and what it will or will not include with some reports suggesting that a maximum number of casinos will be set at 40 and each can have a maximum of 15 tables but what is more important to most Irish online casino players is what happens there as there is considerable freedom at the moment. It would appear from reports in the casino news however that there are no plans to curb the current freedom of choice but providers will be required to obtain a license. There may of course be an issue depending upon how difficult it is to gain a license but casinos.ie cannot imagine that existing operators should have any problem but if the Government starts to think about taxing those companies then the whole thing becomes much more sensitive.
