Cedar Knolls, New Jersey poker nfl football betting Bicimotos fan Myroslaw "onetime99" Woroch (40) has become the first instant millionaire created in Borgata Casino's online poker promotion "New Jersey's Next Poker Millionaire."
With typical casino industry panache and flair, Worock was crowned following an online tournament on the Borgata Poker site that culminated in a televised championship event played live at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa.
In the heads up, Woroch held a 600,000 chip advantage over final opponent Steven "ChipsJammed" Edwards, which he put to good use in quickly defeating a capable and determined rival.
Woroch had never won more than $7,000 playing poker before this past weekend, however that all changed when he flopped a straight in the definitive hand against Edwards, effectively making the Cedar Knolls player the Garden State's newest millionaire.
"It was truly a surreal experience when I knew that I had him beat," said Woroch. "When that final card came out my emotions were just running wild."
Woroch won his way into the Next Poker Millionaire Semi-Final through a BorgataPoker.com 1 Point Entry Tournament on December 19th, and then outlasted a field of 2,177 players on January 5th to secure his seat at the final table at Borgata.
He bested four other participants who qualified through BorgataPoker.com, and an additional three from its partner site, PartyPoker.com to win the dream poker package that includes a WPT Alpha 8 super high roller seat, a WPT World Championship seat, two entries into $3,500 WPT events held at Borgata, 52 tournament entries into the online Sunday $50K and $8,000 in live tournament entries at Borgata.
"New Jersey's Next Poker Millionaire signifies a historic event in the evolution of internet gaming," said Borgata director of poker operations Vince Alonge.
Edwards earned a $25,000 runner up check and a Borgata tournament package.
SPIN GAMES AND NEKTAN IN SOCIAL GAMES CONTENT DEAL
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.

"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."
"REAL GAMING" BRAND WILL BE USED FOR SOUTH POINT'S NEVADA ONLINE POKER SITE
With Ultimate Gaming's Nevada online poker site attracting a growing number of players, and the recent news that CIE's offering WSOP.com 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 Poker.com 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..
POKER FILM SEQUEL RELEASE DATE PUBLISHED (Update)
The much anticipated sequel to the poker movie Rounders will be in theatres by end September titled "Runner, Runner" entertainment media in the United States report this week.
Ben Affleck and Justin Timberlake star in the sequel, the script for which was written by the original Rounders authors. The new movie is directed by Brad Furman and is a set in the world of online gambling.
The switch in starring roles, replacing Rounders stars Matt Damon and Edward Norton, has excited some discussion, but Affleck and Timberlake apparently deliver a very professional depiction of their characters in the film.
Runner Runner will show Timberlake playing the role of a student-gambler earning his way through an ivy league college by playing in the online high stakes poker sector, whilst Affleck plays an internet poker businessman operating offshore in Costa Rica.
The two eventually come together in the Central American country when Timberlake's character feels he has been screwed by the operator.
Recognising the younger man's talent, Affleck's character employs Timberlake and the at times hectic and nosebleed action develops from there.
Screenwriter Brian Koppelman says he and fellow writer David Levien started work on the script back in late 2010, arriving at a first draft early in 2011. Producers that include Leonardo Di Caprio liked the concept, and production started in April 2012.
