in Europe

LAS VEGAS (AP) - Casino giant Harrah's Entertainment Inc.'s chief executive Gary Loveman said Wednesday he's looking at taking the World Series of Poker brand into the realm of Internet poker in the U.K. and continental Europe.

Loveman made the comment at the Global Gaming Expo, the largest trade show of the year for the North American casino industry.

Banks and payment processors are prohibited from handling cash transactions from U.S.-based players to and from online poker sites under legislation President Bush signed into law last year.

There were two words that came to mind when I read that. The first is a seven-letter adjective, although it could also act as a verb, depending on the context in which it is used. It is almost never heard on TV except when they play the uncut version of Schindler's List, Saving Private Ryan, or the South Park movie.

The second word is an eight-letter pluralized form of a seven-letter noun which describes a localized (and centralized) area of a part of the body which could colloquially be referred to with just the first three letters. Generally speaking, this word is not normally allowed on TV either, although it is a staple of the show South Park and was also used in several episodes of NYPD Blue.

Harrah's has already done some foundation laying with its WSOPE Europe in partnership with Betfair earlier this year.
