Delaware Releases Draft Online Gaming Regulations

Delaware Releases Draft Online Gaming Regulations

 

The Government of the US state of Delaware has released the draft proposal of its online regulations for comment by the state’s public.

Delaware is set to launch an online gaming industry in September, which will follow Nevada, which was the first US state to launch regulated online gaming back in April. The draft regulations are 27 pages long are available for comment by the Delaware pubic until the end of July.

The draft regulations state that the Delaware State Lottery will oversee the state’s online gaming industry when it is established, which would be different to how Nevada and New Jersey’s industries are run. In those states, the online gaming industry is run by state gaming regulators.

PokerStars Makes Deal to Enter Online Gaming Market in New Jersey

PokerStars Makes Deal to Enter Online Gaming Market in New JerseyPokerStars and Resorts Casino Hotel have announced a partnership agreement that will permit the world’s leading online poker site to provide online gaming software in New Jersey.

Just one day following the revelation that PokerStars was again prevented by New Jersey courts from succeeding in their quest to buy the Atlantic Club casino comes the news that parent company Rational Group has found another way to finagle into the U.S. market. The full details of the partnership agreement have not yet been released, but both companies are ecstatic to be joining forces.

“Resorts is a fantastic partner for us and we are looking forward to launch PokerStars in the U.S. in association with the other quality brands Resorts has brought to Atlantic City,” said Mark Scheinberg, Rational Group CEO.  “We are very happy to invest in New Jersey and we are excited about building a successful relationship with Resorts.”

Resorts Casino Hotel was the first brick and mortar to open on the Atlantic City boardwalk and has previously established partnerships with other brands such as Margaritaville and Mohegan Sun. “This [PokerStars] is another blue chip partner for Resorts to complete a wonderful series of brands,” Resorts’ Company Chairman Morris Bailey told a PRNewswire reporter.

New Jersey gaming officials must still approve the partnership agreement. It’s natural to assume that the American Gaming Association will again try to intervene in keeping PokerStars from gaining the green light to form an allegiance with the landmark casino.

PokerStars has been eyeing the U.S. online poker market for quite some time. Many believe that the deal brokered with the DoJ last year that saw Rational Group acquire Full Tilt Poker was done partly to get in the good graces of U.S. authorities. PokerStars did receive the DoJ’s blessing to enter the market if possible.

In the absence of federal online poker legislation, individual states have been enacting their own laws and some are including bad actor language to keep out the likes of PokerStars, who continued operating in the U.S. post-UIGEA. New Jersey has no such provisions in its statute, making the Garden State the best opportunity to get a foot in the door of the U.S. market.

That door has now been opened by Resorts Casino and PokerStars wants in. It will be up to state gaming officials to decide upon PokerStars’ suitability as a partner. PokerStars has shown tremendous tenacity in striving to be included in the newly-regulated online poker and gambling market in the U.S. I wouldn’t bet against them at this point.

Trigger an event from a pokerstars hand completion in vb.net

 This will search the Pokerstars hand history folders on your comp and trigger an event when the size of one of those hand history files changes.

I set the timer to 3 seconds and get NO processor spike at all and it catches every append to pokerstars HH files in as many tables you are on. If you plan on parsing hands just split the string in the streamreader with (vbnewline & vbnewline & vbnewline) .  Add it to an array. You will have an array of every hand played in that HH file to parse any info you need after each hand completes. You could also use lastindexof for the latest completed hand.

 

 


Private Sub Timer1_Tick(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Timer1.Tick 'Martin Carter – psxpoker.com Dim dir As String dir = System.Environment.GetFolderPath(Environment.SpecialFolder.LocalApplicationData) 'this is the pokerstars default directory Dim MyHHpath As String = dir & "\PokerStars\HandHistory\" 'create the array to put all the directories in to search for HH files.
Dim DirList As New ArrayList 'get the subdirectories If (System.IO.Directory.Exists(dir & "\PokerStars\HandHistory")) Then GetDirectories(MyHHpath, DirList) 'this is a folder i also save HH files in DirList.Add(System.Environment.GetFolderPath(Environment.SpecialFolder.MyDocuments).ToString & "\HH") lstDirFile.Items.Clear() For Each x In DirList Dim files() As System.IO.FileInfo Dim dirinfo As New System.IO.DirectoryInfo(x.ToString) files = dirinfo.GetFiles("HH*Hold'em*.txt", IO.SearchOption.AllDirectories) For Each file In files 'skip the holdem omaha mixed games If file.ToString.Contains("Omaha") = True Then GoTo skipOmahaFile 'path and filename Dim FileN As String = dirinfo.ToString & "\" & file.ToString Dim filex As New FileInfo(FileN) sizeInBytes2 = filex.Length 'i use this to only add files modified today (ext.letfof is a function... ext.leftof("blah","ah") returns "bl" Dim Lastwrite As Date = eXt.LeftOf(filex.LastWriteTime, " ") 'add the size in bytes and filename to list a If Lastwrite = eXt.LeftOf(Now, " ") Then lstDirFile.Items.Add(sizeInBytes2.ToString & ", " & FileN) End If SkipOmahaFile: Next Next If lstDirFile.Items.Count = 0 Then Exit Sub Else ' populate list b from list a if its empty If lstDirFile2.Items.Count = 0 Then For i = 0 To lstDirFile.Items.Count - 1 lstDirFile2.Items.Add(lstDirFile.Items.Item(i)) Next Else 'start compare and refresh list here 'loop thru list a For i = 0 To lstDirFile.Items.Count - 1 'loop thru list b For x = 0 To lstDirFile2.Items.Count - 1 'If the 2 filenames are the same If eXt.RightOf(lstDirFile.Items.Item(i), ", ") = eXt.RightOf(lstDirFile2.Items.Item(x), ", ") Then 'if the sizes dont match then a hand has just completed If eXt.LeftOf(lstDirFile.Items.Item(i), ", ") <> eXt.LeftOf(lstDirFile2.Items.Item(x), ", ") Then 'here is the file that changed and it is read into memory Dim sr As New IO.StreamReader(eXt.RightOf(lstDirFile.Items(i), ", ").ToString) Dim Sr2 As String = sr.ReadToEnd 'your event would go here
End If End If Next Next 'now move the items from list a to list b for the next timer trigger to compare again lstDirFile2.Items.Clear() For i = 0 To lstDirFile.Items.Count - 1 lstDirFile2.Items.Add(lstDirFile.Items.Item(i)) Next End If End If End Sub

 

I collect 77 different data values from 9 players per hand and store that data on a list of 7000+ players. I parse about 2300 hands per minute on a laptop with this code. Don’t forget to handle exceptions.
