It's back! Scouring the industry's Twitter feeds so you don't have to

Have trouble keeping up with twitter? Well Totally Gaming has been scouring the feeds to bring some of the more interesting tweets from the industry to your attention. Have you seen something that is worthy of attention? Tweet us at @totallygaminghq or re-tweet using the hashtag #twitterlygaming

There is a dark cloud looming on the horizon for the European gambling industry and operators still seem not to have grasped the nettle that is the latest Anti Money Laundering Directive.

Lysis Gaming Compliance has highlighted the fact that it appears all betting operators will be pulled into the new regulations.

It tweeted: "Complete consensus among industry leaders that the h #AML directive will be introduced & applied to all types of betting.."

It could mean lots of work for companies like Openbet, so it is a good thing that the firm has just recruited more staff.

The firm tweeted: "Warm welcome to our new starters who have joined us today!"

Meanwhile the Secret Betting Club has launched a campaign aimed at highlighting the extent to which bookmakers limit accounts of successful punters. As part of the campaign, the firm has devised a league table. 

It tweeted: "Based on our survey - here are the bookmakers who closed the most accounts"

However popular rails bookmaker Geoff Banks believes that most of the industry have no choice if they want to remain solvent.

He commented: "I appreciate that restrictions and closures cause upset - but until you stop choosing minimal margin books like Bet365 - it's a fact of life"

StarSportsBet still believes there's plenty of custom for the bookmakers no matter what - suggesting that the popularity of betting is even encouraging the worst parking ever seen outside of Rome.

It tweeted: "When you're in hurry and not prepared to be late to the bookies to watch your bet....."

Meanhwile TV racing presenter Nick Luck clearly had a pun in the oven when asked about this week's hot topic in the UK - The Great British Bake Off and the resignation of three of its presenters because of a move away from the BBC.

One of Luck's fans asked: "Have you been approached about presenting Bake off yet? I for one might watch it if so."

Luck deadpanned back: "Very much in the mix...   "

And finally, a little bit of reflection and awe to one of the longer standing betting ambassadors - Mr Chris Kamara - who this week has again shown his dedication to the Ladbrokes cause.

The bookmaker tweeted: #Unbelievable fashion from @chris_kammy...
