In the general casino news this week we read about William Hill and their intention to introduce self service betting terminals into their UK shops as well as giving all staff the UK Government’s new living wage. The self service betting terminals are of interest as that seems to be, according to casinos.ie, exactly what online gambling is with the difference that you can do it from home so why would you go into a shop? The other disadvantage of this seems to be that instead of having a choice of online casinos or other online gambling sites which are provided by the likes of casinos.ie there will only be one assuming that William Hill are not going to provide access to Paddy Power casino. This announcement follows on the news that profits were reduced by some 21% last which they blame mainly on the new taxation regime in the UK about which this online casino portal has written before as other online casinos such as Ladbrokes casino have reported similar problems. In further online casino news the Swedish online casino software supplier NetEnt says it wants to expand from the current position of 30% market share in Europe as well as signing agreements with companies in the United States where online gambling is still mostly illegal although New Jersey was the first state to legalise online casinos and NetEnt has deals with many of the major operators there. Several online casinos recommended by Irish casino portal casinos.ie such as All Irish Casino use casino software supplied by NetEnt and it is considered by many to be that little bit different and therefore attractive to players. CEO Per Eriksson currently has around 750 employees developing casino games in Sweden and the online casino centre of Malta but is also understood to be opening offices in Krakov and Kiev to meet demand.
