Stakes rise in casino’s bid for tax breaks

The continued erosion of Burswood Ltd’s foreign high-roller business has highlighted how critical it is for the Perth casino operator to win tax concessions from the West Australian Government to remain competitive in a market that the company pioneered in Australia.

The contrast in fortunes between Burswood and Melbourne’s Crown casino Pengeluaran HK  has also provided Mr Kerry Packer’s Publishing & Broadcasting Ltd with a persuasive case to put before the WA Government to scrap Burswood’s 10 per cent individual shareholding cap.

In its 2001 results released last week, Burswood revealed a further deterioration in its international commission business revenues, which declined 31 per cent to $54.5 million. Five years ago, that figure was $238 million.

To generate those ICB revenues, Burswood had to pay $38.4 million in junket commissions and rebates.

Its effective tax rate of 16 per cent (including a 1 per cent park board levy) would have cost a further $8.7 million, suggesting meagre overall ICB returns once various other operating expenses were accounted for.

While a similar crimp on ICB earnings forced Sydney’s Star City casino to abandon its pursuit of foreign high-rollers, Burswood’s managing director, Mr John Schaap, reaffirmed last week his commitment to the …

Survey of gamblers: Sg Online Casino not a threat to resorts

Internet betting is likely to expand the gambling industry as opposed to stealing business from traditional bricks-and-mortar casinos in Las Vegas and other gaming markets, a new survey of 3,000 gamblers worldwide indicates.

“Online casinos are not a current threat to Las Vegas casinos. Instead, they will be a new revenue source and a possible cross-marketing tool,” said Jerry Asher, vice president of marketing for the Internet gambling research firm the River City Group.

His St. Charles, Mo.-based firm collaborated with Reymer & Associates in compiling the River City Gambler Monitor report.

Asher said gamblers who wager both on- and off-line tend to increase their betting budgets, rather than split the funds between the two activities.

“Online gambling is a completely different entertainment experience,” he said.

The report is expected to be released this week. Asher offered some of its contents during an Internet gambling panel discussion at the World Gaming Congress and Expo in Las Vegas last week.

The report comes as a few major land-based casino operators are preparing to enter the cybergambling industry.

MGM MIRAGE, Littlewoods of Liverpool, England, and Sun International Hotels — which operates the Atlantis Resort and Casino in the Bahamas, among other properties …

Serious Tokyoslot88 Poker

At the time I write this, Dan Kimberg is probably my biggest competitor for the title of “Most Influential Gambling Book Reviewer on the Internet”. Kimberg’s web site, at http://www.kimberg.com/poker/, contains a large collection of poker book reviews written by many people, including the author of Serious Poker. One can assume from this that Kimberg has spent some time thinking about poker. But, as I’m well aware, there is a difference between critiquing someone else’s work, and coming up with enough original thoughts of one’s own to fill a book. The question is, are the thoughts that he transcribes in these pages worth reading?

The beginning of Serious Poker is obviously aimed at relative novices. Kimberg first addresses the rules to commonly spread poker games, and provides a general guide to getting around a public card room. In my opinion, navigating a poker room for the first time can be a daunting experience, and I’m glad to see any advice that beginners might read which may help alleviate that. He then moves on to basic strategy advice. The information he presents here is usually sound as far as it goes, but it’s really too limited to be useful as a …

Boomtown UFAExplodes

Celebrating their remodeling and Grand Re-opening, the Boomtown Casino in Bossier City, Louisiana treated their patrons to the grandest fireworks display in the history of that state. This was a thoroughly enjoyable three-day festival that pleased the multitudes that attended. Gambling Times was delighted to attend this function.

The world-famous Grucci family of New York, whose history as pyrotechnical experts dates back to 1850, engineered the fireworks/laser show. “America’s First Family of Fireworks” has created displays for the 1976 bicentennial celebrations in New York and Boston, Olympic competitions in Lake Placid, NY and Los Angeles, consecutive World’s Fairs in New Orleans, Knoxville, TN and Korea, centennial celebrations of the Brooklyn Bridge and the Statue of Liberty, and for six consecutive presidential inaugurations from Ronald Reagan to George W. Bush.

The fireworks and laser-light shows were the highlight of the outdoor festival held on the grounds of Bossier City’s newest and most exciting casino property. The entertainment headliners for the event included Joe Stampley & The Uniques, country entertainer Ronnie Milsap, and the classic sounds of The Drifters and The Coasters. Other entertainers taking the stage during the three-day gala include Ricky Lynn Gregg, 8-Track, B.B. Secrist, and award-winning Elvis impersonator …

Big Denny Guarantees It

I saw the ad for Big Denny’s Barstow Card Casino, but I didn’t believe it. “Big Denny Invites You to a Super Hold’em Tournament,” the headline read. The buy-in was $300, there were no rebuys, the prize pool was a guaranteed $50,000, and the Sbobet88 tournament was limited to a maximum of 10 tables! (All of this was on top of a $100,000 jackpot.)

It didn’t take an Albert J. Einstein to figure out that there was an enormous overlay here. Also, since Big Denny was behind this promotion, it didn’t take an Einstein to figure out that there probably was something fishy going on as well. After all, this was the man who invented the 50/50 guarantee for his used car lot — 50 feet or 50 seconds, whichever came first.

So, I called Denny at the casino to check things out. “Is this on the level, big guy?” I asked point-blank. The voice on the other end sounded hurt. “Gosh, Maxey, don’t you trust me?”

Some choice I had. I could either lie or respond honestly and risk major structural damage to my head the next time we met. So, I evaded his question and instead pointed out …

The Player’s ป๊อกเด้ง ไฮโล Choices

Surrender

We start with one of the least common decisions, but it is appropriate to begin with surrender, because this decision must be made before any other choice about playing your hand. Not every game offers surrender, and those that do fall into two categories which bear expanation: Early vs Late.

Surrender offers you as a player the choice to fold your hand, at the cost of half of the original bet. You must make that decision prior to taking any other action on the hand. For example, once you draw a third card, or split, or double down, surrender is no longer an option.

The two varieties of surrender, early and late, differ only in the way a dealer ป๊อกเด้ง ไฮโล blackjack is handled. In an early surrender game, a player may choose to surrender before the dealer checks his cards for a blackjack, offering a cheap way out even if the dealer turns out to have a blackjack. Because this offers a healthy advantage to the player, this version (early surrender) is rarely offered. The much more common variation is late surrender, where the dealer checks for blackjack first, and then only if he does not have blackjack …

Internet Judi Online Terpercaya Gambling and Anti-Terrorist Laws

The events of September 11 certainly have changed things worldwide. And apparently, the Internet casino business is not immune from such changes. The attack has brought about sweeping new laws to deal with terrorism. Many are being drafted, many are being voted on, and the U.S. Congress has passed several

Somehow, Internet gambling has been thrown into Bill HR 3004 – the Financial Anti-Terrorism Act of 2001 – that now sits in the House of Representatives Finance Committee. [Full text of the bill can be read at the House of Representatives site.] Most of the bill is designed to go after money laundering operations and suspicious financial transactions that involve terrorism. Title 18 of the U.S. Criminal Code currently covers money laundering, but amendments were made to strengthen it considerably.

Two sections of this bill, sections 303 and 304, specifically deal with Internet gambling. That part of the bill is collectively known as the “Unlawful Internet Gambling Funding Act.”

Section 303 is titled “Prohibition on acceptance of any bank instrument for unlawful Internet gambling,” while section 304 covers I-gaming in foreign jurisdictions. Both elements deal with the business end of the industry and the wording seems to indicate that the …

Judi Online in brief

Serbia’s highly-strung Euro 2016 clash with Albania lasted 41 minutes after an Albanian drone (!) flying the nation’s flag entered the stadium. Serbian defender Stefan Markovic grabbed the flag precipitating a brawl involving players and supporters. The two nations remain in dispute over Kosovo, a historically Serbian territory now populated by people of largely Albanian origin. Belgrade police arrested the brother of Albania’s Prime Minister for allegedly organising the drone stunt. Georgia and Russia were previously banned from being drawn against each other while Armenia & Azerbaijan and Spain & Gibraltar are still kept apart by UEFA.

Nowhere to go but up for Qiu Qiu Online Japan

Disappointed Japanese national team players were trying to stay positive Wednesday night in light of their surprising 1-0 loss to Bahrain in World Cup qualifying in Manama.

It was the first loss in seven matches for the Asian giants under new manager Takeshi Okada, but it left the team three points adrift of Bahrain in Asian Group B of qualifying for South Africa 2010.

Japan conceded in the 77th minute to an Ala’a Qiu Qiu Online Hubail header after goalkeeper Yoshikatsu Kawaguchi made a mess of an attempted punch of an Ismail Abdullatif cross. The ball fell kindly to Hubail, who nodded it over Kawaguchi as defender Yuji Nakazawa vainly attempted to prevent the shot from crossing the line.

“In the dressing room after the game the talk was all about what we need to do in our next games. We have to stay positive,” said Nagoya Grampus striker Keiji Tamada. “Of course, we can’t dismiss what happened today. We have to learn our lessons and correct them.”

Japan struggled to find any kind of rhythm and looked confused and apprehensive going forward in a new-look 3-5-2 formation.

The players admitted the 33 degree heat and state of the pitch …
