Some time ago in the Irish casino news section of casinos.ie we wrote about an unsuccessful trip by boy band One Direction to a Las Vegas casino where they were asked to leave because they were under age (you have to be 21 years old to be able to drink or gamble in the USA) but now we read reports in the Irish casino news that in Australia where the legal age limit is 18 they have been able to let their hair down and although Irishman Niall Horan is quoted as saying that he won money at a casino, it seems others were not so fortunate and lost substantial sums but they probably had good fun anyway. Also in the Irish casino news this week Paddy Power casino has announced details of the annual Student Masters poker tournament which takes place on March 2nd and 3rd 2013 in the Ballsbridge Hotel in Dublin. This tournament is always in the Irish casino news and is very popular amongst Irish students as it is only open to students who have to produce a valid student ID in order to participate but of course they also have to be 18 years of age or over. The tournament is not cheap for a student at €100 plus 10 but there are cheaper satellite tournaments and even free roll tournaments starting on October 28th so click through to Paddy Power online casino and register with the password STUDENT. The Irish casino news has also read that the prize pool will be enhanced with a seat to the Irish Open which could be worth a lot of money to the student winner. In other Irish casino news we continue to keep an eye on developments surrounding William Hill and Sportingbet and there are several rumours circulating about the effect that might have on well known online casinos such as Ladbrokes casino.
