PADDY POWER WITHDRAWS OFFENSIVE TWITTER COMMENT
The Paddy Power online gambling group, famed for its controversial but eye-catching promotional work, may have gone too far this week with a tweet that was clearly intended to be amusing but ended up in wide condemnation and an embarrassing withdrawal of the offensive material.
Ahead of a Newcastle vs. Liverpool football match, the betting company referenced the currently raging controversy in the US around often videoed African-American police beatings in a tweet which read:
"Newcastle have suffered more Kop beatings over the last 20 years than an unarmed African-American male".
The backlash on social media was strong and almost immediate, resulting in the withdrawal of the tweet.
InfoPowa readers will recall that Paddy Power has the dubious distinction of generating the most complaints ever on a gambling promotion to the Advertising Standards Authority. Last year the company was criticised for an advert on the outcome of the legless Olympian athlete Oscar Pistorius' murder trial in which the company offered "money back if he walks."
There were 5,525 complaints about the insensitivity of the advert, and the ASA directed that it be withdrawn.
Ed. Note: "Kop" is a UK colloquial term for steep terraces at a football stadium occupied by hardcore fans.
FULL TILT POKER DEVELOPS NEWBIE TABLES
Full Tilt Poker has moved to provide a more attractive and perhaps safer playing option for new online poker players, introducing "New to the Game" virtual tables this week.
The strictly controlled tables are designed to ease newbies more gently into the game, giving them more time to make playing decisions and shielding them from sharks who might seek to take advantage of their inexperience.
The tables additionally provide "tool tips" to assist newbies in a variety of game situations and provide them with practical options. Current hand strength is displayed for the new player to assess as each hand progresses.
Participation on the newbie tables will be strictly controlled and is based on each player's experience in terms of number of tournaments and hands played in each poker variant eg Texas Hold'em, Omaha etc.
For cash games, the limit is 2,000 hands and for tournaments and sit-and-go's the limit is 75 events. When those levels have been achieved, the player no longer qualifies as a newbie.
The new system is at present restricted to low stakes cash and tournaments on No-Limit Holdem and PLO, with Fixed Limit Holdem introduced as a single featured game of the week.
Players may only participate in two New to the Game tables at one time.
FTP expects to offer "New to the Game" tournaments later
