More Female Poker Players

Goddess Poker is the newest site for fast action multiplayer poker. Offering a $1000 free roll tournament, $25000 progressive badbeat jackpot, and a 100% match play bonus, Goddess Poker is soon to be one of the favorite sites for poker
players everywhere.

Poker players are predominantly male although the female demographic is growing and accounts for 15 to 25 per cent of the market. Women are known to remain more loyal customers, and enjoy the sense of community offered by a Poker Room, its players, and their chat.

Maryann Morrison, an internet marketer and publisher of the, is known to cater to the women’s niche gaming market. She contributes her brand and experience as a member of the operational team of Goddess Poker.

“Goddess Poker was designed to appeal to newer poker players and to be attractive to women.” Maryann states. “Women feel more comfortable learning new games on the internet because they can learn at their own pace and because of its anonymity. However, the most important aspect is that it offers Poker Incorporated’s software, which was developed by poker players for poker players. The games played will make Goddess Poker appeal to anyone, including seasoned poker professionals. Women feel more comfortable learning new games on the Internet because of the anonymity and they can learn at their own pace."

All the most popular card games such as Texas Hold'em, Omaha, Omaha Hi Lo and Seven Card Stud and Seven Card Stud Hi Lo can be found in the Goddess Poker card

rooms. Collectively these games account for over 95 per cent of all poker games and are available as play for cash, tournament games or play for free.

Park Place Offers New Comps Program - MEMPHIS, TN – Park Place Entertainment is rolling out a program next week that will enable customers at its three Tunica County casinos to bank points earned at one to use at the other two.

The Connection Card will enable customers who play slot machines and table games at Bally's, Sheraton or Grand Casinos to cash in their comp dollars at any of the three casinos.

The points will be good for hotel rooms, meals, shows, spa services, golf and other goods or services within a year after earning the credits. Grand, Sheraton and Bally's players will be able to redeem bonuses themselves as well as check their balances with self-service redemption kiosks in the casinos and hotels. They may accumulate credits by using either their current player cards or getting a new Connection Card.

Tattoo Parlor Planned for Casino - LAS VEGAS - The Palms Casino Resort expects to open a tattoo parlor, Hard & Huntington Tattoo Co., in February.

The idea was crafted by Palms owner George Maloof, motorcross rider Carey Hart and Las Vegas nightclub promoter John Huntington. The parlor will have three tattoo stations and a private guest station. It will have antique "leathered" walls, a custom sound system and feature a dee-jay on occasion as well as some of the country's premier tattoo artists, promoters said. Hart and Huntington also expect to sell tattoo parlor merchandise at clothing stores and specialty shops worldwide including T-shirts, sweaters, hats and other items.

Schwarzenegger on Ballot and Slot Machines? - Arnold Schwarzenegger, the Austrian-born actor of "Terminator" movie fame who is running for governor of California, may encounter problems due to a reported affiliation with slot machines. The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports that in April, Arnold Schwarzenegger agreed to the use of his name, image and voice on IGT's new "Terminator"-themed nickel slot machine, which is set to make its debut at the Global Gaming Expo in Las Vegas next month. If so, it may be the first time the name and image of a candidate for major political office has been used to promote gambling. In 2001, Schwarzenegger filed a $20-million lawsuit against IGT for using his likeness and voice on the "Terminator" slot machine without his permission or fair compensation. The lawsuit said Schwarzenegger was "particularly circumspect to avoid using his name, likeness or image for certain industries such as gambling." If the August 13 article in the Las Vegas Review-Journal is correct, Schwarzenegger has had a change of heart. However, a conflicting Aug. 13 article in the Las Vegas Sun reports that after the settlement in April, IGT designed its "Terminator" slots so as not to include Arnold's voice, image or likeness. As governor, Schwarzenegger would be responsible for negotiating and enforcing gaming compacts with California's Indian tribes. If Schwarzenegger does have an interest in the "Terminator" machines, he may be vulnerable to a conflict-of-interest charge when he must determine the number of slot machines tribal casinos may operate.
