More than 90% of poker diehards would argue that poker has seen its popularity going down, and many would not wage all their cash in a poker game. However, there is the Hot Poker Spot, which is a product of the Gaming Partners International (GPI) based in Las Vegas would go against all odds and prove the doubting 90% wrong. The site is eligible for having more recreational clients venture as well as keeps the active ones.
Hot Poker Spot has been approved in various states including Mississippi, New Mexico, Arizona, California, Washington as well as South Dakota. Various casinos support the poker including Casino Del Sol, Inn of the Mountain, Pala Casino, Ameristar Casino and Cadillac Jacks Casino.
Manager at Casino Del Sol Rick Chaurette claimed that being the first casino to have Hot Poker to their platform; the casino will benefit both in its popularity as well as increased revenue. The introduction of this poker has made blackjack become a side bet.
On the other hand, Jeff Cagan of Bucky’s Casino in Arizona claimed that for long his firm has been looking forward to launching poker room side bets. The authorization by the Arizona State gambling officials to have both poker and the house-banked side bet has was a real opportunity not to let go.
Other than the casinos mentioned above, some sites are also interested in having this poker to their platform such as LA cardrooms. Nonetheless, the licensing of Hot Poker Spot has been slow, and these sites have to wait until GPI consults with the respective authorities. The same case has been experienced in Nevada State where Hot Poker Spot still awaits the verdict of the Nevada Gaming Authorities before it can be awarded operational license.
