The question of 'bad actors' - companies that continued to service the US market after the UIGEA passed in 2006 - has been at the heart of debate around online poker legalisation proposals recently, particularly in the political and tribal maneuvering in California, where two bills are currently before the Legislature (see previous InfoPowa reports).

It's an issue in which Pokerstars and Full Tilt Poker parent the Rational Group have an interest, having paid hundreds of millions in settlements with the US Department of Justice and formed an alliance with the California-based Morongo tribes and leading commercial card rooms in the state.

In the latest development, a distinguished - and independent - Harvard law professor Laurence H. Tribes assessment of the validity of bad actor provisions in the two Californian legislative proposals will give Rational encouragement.

The learned academic says that, if challenged, "bad actor" clauses are unlikely to survive an attack based on federal constitutional grounds.

The Constitutional Law professor names three areas where "bad actor" provisions could be effectively defeated:

* Such clauses qualify as constitutionally prohibited bills of attainder - a class that legislatively determines guilt and inflicts punishment upon an identifiable individual without provision of the protections of a judicial trial, otherwise known as trial by legislature.

* The December 31, 2006 cut-off date used in the California bills is arbitrary and discriminates against Pokerstars in a commercial protectionism sense under the Constitution's Equal Protection Clause.

* The Californian proposals trigger serious constitutional issues in an intellectual property sense, prejudicing Pokerstars' IP in California through restriction and contravening the Takings Clause in the federal constitution.


The Reno, Nevada-based interactive games developer Spin Games LLC has completed a content development and integration agreement with Nektan (Gibraltar) Limited, a social and online games content and services developer.
Under the agreement, Spin will license HTML5 game content and the Spin Games Remote Gaming Server (RGS) branded The ROC to Nektan for deployment on its platform.
This will enable Nektan to offer HTML5 games in the UK and regulated interactive markets covered within its Gibraltar gaming licence.
The ROC, an HTML5 RGS designed by Spin specifically for the regulated US interactive gaming market, offers a broad range of game content. It delivers content on multiple platforms including IOS and Android as well as desktop applications.
Additionally, it has been developed with multiple game engines including slots, video poker, ball games, table games and Keno which support a volume of quality content.
Nektan is the creator of the hybrid 'sklots' skill and chance game concepts delivering unique games and end to end i-gaming technology which can be played across a variety of platforms from commercial operators to government lotteries. The Gibraltar-based company is focused on localised game content that bridges the gap between social, internet and mobile gaming.
Kent Young, president of Spin Games said that the agreement expands his company's foot print within UK and European regulated interactive gaming markets.
"With our combined expertise we can expect significant traction and gaming yields," he said.
David da Silva, commercial director at Nektan said: "The demand for quality mobile HTML5 real-money slots and video poker in regulated markets is insatiable, and we are delighted to have secured this unique content from Spin to add to our catalogue."


With Ultimate Gaming's Nevada online poker site attracting a growing number of players, and the recent news that CIE's offering will probably be launching in October (see previous InfoPowa reports), there are now indications that a third Nevada online poker licensee is closing in on a launch date.
The Las Vegas-based South Point Hotel Casino & Spa's online poker licence was granted back in August 2012, and the company has been building up its proprietary online poker software capability for some time, missing its original 2012 target for a launch.
Earlier this month the poker information site Pocket Fives posted: "Just announced that South Point will brand its real money poker site as Real Gaming," a reference to a new brand created by South Point CEO Mark Gaughan for a proprietary poker client developed in-house.
South Point's chief operating officer Lawrence Vaughan has in the past said that his company's "home-grown" operation was built with Nevada regulations front-of-mind, and incorporates a slew of consumer and other protections.
It is understood that Global Cash Access is Real Gaming's payment processor and will facilitate cash outs and deposits.
Another indicator that a launch may be imminent has been recent marketing efforts designed to get players to register in anticipation of the commencement of real-money operations.
South Point has been operating a play-for-free website at South Point for some time, using the reportedly clumsy Zen Entertainment software, although Gaughan has made clear that real-money action would not be powered by that company..
