The best of igaming on Twitter in the past seven days.

Worried you’ve missed something from the igaming world on Twitter this week? Worry no more, we’ve got you covered.

Following a seven figure investment in daily fantasy B2B operator Oulala is looking to take the European market by storm next year. Curtis Roach tweeted out an article from Legal Sports Report evaluating the latest from the DFS industry and this investment, with a rather hopeful message attached regarding the wider industry’s potential…

He tweeted: “Could DFS ever take over sports betting??? Some believe it could!!”

As the potential of the legalisation of sports betting becomes more and more discussed in numerous States, Joe Brennan Jr. mentioned of PASPA, or Protection of Amateur and Professional Sports bill brought in in 1992 to prohibit sports betting throughout the States, and how some legislative daring could be required…

He tweeted: “Laws can be used for de facto state control of sports betting w/o any new law violating PASPA. Some legislative daring may be required here.”

With a large number of igaming operators and suppliers opting to employ promo girls to get attention for their product at events, Clarion’s Sadie Walters delivered a much needed message to the industry at large ahead of ICE 2017…

She tweeted: “Are promo girls at gaming shows ok, with such exciting innovations? @EwaBakun http://bit.ly/2hzLgWE  #iceequality”

Attention casino and resort operators..in a massive week for the casino industry, it was announced that Japan has legalised casinos. If you were on the fence about visiting for the 2020 olympics then decision made.

Rory Credland tweeted: “Japan has done it! JGC 2 here we come! #JgCLive @TotallyGamingHQ”

Another Rory, this time Jiwani, gave some commentary on the gulf in punishments dished out to those found to be spot fixing in cricket compared with those fixing races at the horses…

He tweeted: “In cricket, you can get banged up for spot-fixing. In racing, you can fix actual races (x2) and get a six-month ban.”

With Sports Personality of the Year award being presented this Sunday, this week has seen a number of bets. Andy Murray the out and out favourite, most major bookies are offering a W/O Andy Murray market in which Alistair Brownlee is the frontrunner. Will Hill’s Graham Sharpe revealed that they’d taken a sizable bet on Nick Skelton at 12/1.

He tweeted: “Wm Hill client with £4000 on Nick Skelton in SPOTY 'w/out Andy Murray' market at 12/1, has further £2000 at 10/1, & he's now 8/1. #bbcspoty”
