Dicks-missed!* Sportingbet Pays $400k to Get Dicks Off

Peterdicks_2PokerNews.com, a site we read for its hot photos of playing cards and dice, is reporting that Sportingbet, PLC, paid the State of Louisiana a paltry $400,000 to drop its arrest warrants against the online gambling outfit's executives, including Peter Dicks, its former chairman who was snatched last September by authorities in New York but released soon after because Gov. Pataki refused to give Dicks to Louisiana.

According to PokerNews.com, the payment, or ransom money if you will, that got Dicks off will be used in part towards local efforts against guys who get their dicks off stealing peoples' identities, looking at illegal porn and betting online.

Expecting more play on "Dicks" in this post? Well, we petered out after we did this Dicks-laden post on the Sportingbet ex-exec last September.

Now go check out PokerNews.com. They have scantily clad red dice and handcuffs on their homepage right now.
