NASHVILLE, TN--(Marketwire - Jan 9, 2013) - DHS Holding Co. (PINKSHEETS: DHSM) -- President Charlie Barrett announced today that DHS Holding, Co. has reached an agreement with software vendor FenServices and Net Entertainment to lease and operate the online casino software engine that will drive the LuckyFoxCasino.com website. LuckyFoxCasino.com is owned and operated by DHS Belize, LTD, a wholly owned subsidiary of DHS Holding, Co.
Mr. Barrett stated, "Revenue for the online gaming industry reaches $180b worldwide and is growing rapidly. With the signing of this contract, we expect to have the LuckyFoxCasino.com website launched shortly."
LuckyFoxCasino.com will host a variety of games from poker to blackjack, slot machines and sports betting. The company is also in the process of developing an app for smart phones that will take the functionality of LuckyFoxCasino mobile.
Though LuckyFoxCasino.com will not be accepting or targeting United States patrons, Barrett did note that the Governor of Delaware, Jack Markell, signed a law (The Gaming Competitiveness Act of 2012) that makes Delaware the first state to offer internet gambling.
Barrett noted an article from USA Today that stated, "Delaware became the first state to enter the realm of legal online casino gambling... with the governor's approval of legislation that allows for full-service betting websites offering slots play and games like roulette, poker and blackjack. The state hopes to launch online gambling in 2013 and intends to make betting available on a variety of digital devices including smart phones and tablets."
Nevada has also proposed a bill for Online Gambling compacts, and a bill in New Jersey has passed both houses and is awaiting approval by Governor Chris Christie.
