The sound of football referee whistles are blaring loudly and I haven’t even sipped my first warmth of coffee yet…wake me Toto, click my heals and I’ll be back in Kansas! As you can tell I am not in my usual setting of nature and tranquility as we are staying with family for a quick visit abroad.
Sundays, I am told are a huge football day in the states, with rituals I do not comprehend fully, but find rather interesting when it comes to feeding my hunger for understanding the nature of creatures of habits.
As I sit typing away on my trusty little keyboard tucked away in a room unfamiliar to my senses I realize the show must go on, so guys and dolls here is your latest edition of CS Reports Weekly Recap of online gambling news, reviews and previews!
This week Bally’s Technologies signed an agreement to provide online casino and skill games developer GameAccount Network a large selection of online and mobile gaming content. Bally Technologies’ Vice President of Business Development John Connelly announced, “We are very pleased to reach this agreement with GameAccount.” Bally offers its online content through a Remote Gaming Server. Customers can access the entire library of content, and because of the limited infrastructure needed, an easy, one-time integration to existing platforms is achievable. The Company plans to offer a continuous flow of new online and mobile titles.

And last but not least here is a great winner’s story from player H.R won $106,286 on Cash Splash at CasinoAction.
“I was just relaxing playing some of my favourite games on Thursday evening. Looked at the clock, seen it was getting late, so I decided to do 10 more spins on CashSplash. On the 3rd spin I noticed one CashSplash stop on the payline. No big deal, I’ve seen that before. Then the 2nd CashSplash symbol stopped on the payline. I closed my eyes (I don’t know why) and when I opened my eyes there was the message “Congratulations, you have just won the jackpot!” Wow! Didn’t touch anything for some time. Just stared at my monitor.
Then the phone rang, it was Javert from Casino Rewards calling me to congratulate me and I knew it was real. What a feeling!! Going to put most of the money in my retirement fund, and then maybe take a little vacation to Vegas. What an exciting and great experience!
Thank you Casino Action for all the great games.”
