Cabo Verde Casino Project Led by Macau Legend Boss May Be Scrapped

A casino project in Cabo Verde meant to add new life to the Atlantic Ocean archipelago nation may not happen. Macau Legend Development, the company behind the failed Tak Chun Group junket, is apparently no longer 메이저놀이터 in a position to cover the project’s costs.

David Chow, the founder of Macau Legend, came into Cabo Verde over two decades ago with plans to help the island nation attract tourism. In 2001, he presented Djeu, a massive complex on Santiago Island that would include a casino, a marina, and commercial space.


That was when Macau Legend, the company behind Macau’s Fisherman’s Wharf and other properties, was enjoying great success. It was also before its junket operations came crashing down with the arrest of Tak Chun’s former boss, Levo Chan, on illegal gambling charges.


Cabo Verde Seeing Red

Despite having presented Djeu in 2001, it didn’t get off the ground until 2016. Six years later, the only indication that any construction activity has taken place is an office and a bridge connecting a small islet, Santa Maria, to the mainland.


Chow’s project was to be one of the most expensive in Cabo Verde, an independent nation which lies about 500 miles west of Senegal, Africa. It initially carried a price tag of around $238.85 million, which later became $84 million. In return, Chow would receive a gaming license valid for 25 years, 15 of which were to be exclusive.


He then threw in another $1 million in order to retain the exclusive rights to consider iGaming and online sports betting. Just like Djeu, they never materialized.


As Macau Legend faces issues 메이저토토사이트 and a criminal investigation, Chow has sought to distance himself from the company. But even as he cuts his stake, he is still inextricably linked to it.


A recent report by media outlet Hoje Macau states that Macau Legend missed payments on two bank loans. As of the end of June, it had outstanding loans of $2.3 billion and still has to pay $237 million over the next 12 months. According to the media outlet, the company only has around $8.4 million available.


Because of its financial situation, Macau Legend is trying to renegotiate the terms of its loans. The request to do so came after the due date, which could prove disastrous. If the company doesn’t have the financial stability to cover even the minimum amount of its debts, creditors might decide that it’s time to start seizing assets.


Macau Legend’s Unstable Grounds

In the first half of this year, Macau Legend spent $6.25 million on different financial vehicles and interest. This is $2.48 million more than it spent in the same period last year.


The company recorded losses of around $61.85 million in the first half of the year. This, it stated, is an improvement over the same period last year. Then, the losses were $87.72 million.


Shareholders have been bailing out the company as well. They have provided around $25.48 million this year to keep Macau Legend moving forward. As it tries to get things under control, the company wants to sell some of its debt securities in exchange for about the same amount of cash.


This past July, Macau Legend bosses stated that there were “no major risks” to the company’s future. The evidence points to the contrary, as do the findings of Ernst & Young. The accounting firm has questioned the company’s ability to survive.


That doesn’t bode well for the future of Santiago and Cabo Verde. On the other hand, perhaps a more solid operator 메이저토토 could move in and negotiate a deal with the local government.


The groundwork is already in place and the country’s economy is growing, making it a potentially viable alternative for a reputable gaming company.

Flamingo Sale Bell Tolls with No Answer

It’s widely known that Caesars 메이저놀이터 Entertainment (NASDAQ: CZR) is looking to sell one of its Las Vegas Strip properties — a transaction many industry observers expected to be announced earlier this year.


Flamingo

That news hasn’t hit the wires, and as TheStreet.com reports, the casino giant is bumping up against a deadline in a previously established agreement with VICI Properties (NYSE:VICI). That target date is sometime this summer, but with just four days remaining in the third quarter, the likelihood of Caesars exceeding that time limit appears elevated.


As you know, we have an ongoing sales process for a Strip asset that’s governed by the VICI agreements and ends about another month to run,” said Caesars CEO Tom Reeg on the company’s second-quarter earnings 메이저토토사이트 conference call on Aug. 2.


The Caesars/VICI accord was established in 2019 when Eldorado Resorts — the company that acquired “old Caesars” – struck an agreement with the casino landlord.


In addition to buying the land and real estate assets of Harrah’s New Orleans, Harrah’s Laughlin, and Harrah’s Atlantic City, VICI earned some other benefits. Namely, the real estate company earned rights of first of refusal on the Flamingo Las Vegas, Bally’s Las Vegas, Paris Las Vegas and Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino. The second would include the remainders from that group and the LINQ Hotel & Casino.


Probably Flamingo on the Auction Block

Reports surfaced five months ago that the Strip asset Caesars is likely shopping is Flamingo and that the operator is seeking at least $1 billion.


The company hasn’t confirmed that Flamingo is the venue on the block, but through the process of deduction, it makes sense. Reportedly, Planet Hollywood was the property Caesars was looking to sell, but management realized there’s considerable, ongoing value in the resort’s concert venue. As TheStreet notes, Caesars is making investments in Bally’s — soon to be the Horseshoe — Harrah’s and Paris.


Interestingly, it’s common knowledge in the industry that Flamingo needs some sprucing up as well. As a triple-net real estate investment trust (REIT), VICI wouldn’t be on the hook for those expenses if it acquires the property. The operator of the venue would take on that responsibility.


There’s speculation that Flamingo’s need for enhancements could keep buyers at bay, but Reeg said there’s ample interest in the venue.


“For us — and there’s — there are plenty of interested parties,” he said on the August conference call.


Rising Interest Rates Could Be Factor in Flamingo Sale

Caesars hasn’t clarified that a Flamingo transaction will be a sale-leaseback whereby it sells the real estate to VICI and continues operating the venue or an outright sale to another suitor. However, the $1 billion rumored asking price and other recent Strip transactions imply the latter.


Rising interest rates could factor into the equation because some interested buyers may need to finance the purchase and pay more today than they would have at the start of 2022.


As a result of those tighter financing 메이저토토 conditions, Caesars — assuming it’s still shopping Flamingo or another venue — could prefer a cash buyer. Still, the number of suitors fitting that bill may be dwindling and perhaps limited to private equity and some tribal casino operators.

California Sports Betting Update: Dueling Ads Released on Prop 27 — VIDEO

Election Day is 11 weeks away, and with committees on the various sides of the California sports betting debate having millions of dollars to spend, those groups have hit the airwaves – and hit the airwaves hard – trying to influence voters.


California sports betting commercial

A screenshot from a commercial released 먹튀검증사이트 Tuesday by “Californians for Solutions to Homelessness and Mental Health Support,” which urges voters to support a measure on the ballot this fall to legalize online sports betting. The 30-second ad was one of two released Tuesday by groups on either side of the issue. (Image: “Californians for Solutions to Homelessness and Mental Health Support”/YouTube)

Two more spots were released in the Golden State Tuesday regarding Proposition 27, which would legalize online wagering in the state. It is one of two measures that will be on the California ballot.


On the pro-Prop 27 side, “Californians for Solutions to Homelessness and Mental Health Support” released a 30-second commercial (see below). The spot features a cofounder of a Sacramento-based homeless shelter talking about the need for funding such programs across the state.



Under the proposal from seven national sports betting operators, online sports betting would be legalized in California, and revenues from commercial operators would be taxed at 10%. The state would then apply 85% of the tax revenue toward a funding stream for homelessness and mental health programs. The remainder would go toward tribal economic development initiatives.


For the first time ever, Prop 27 will provide permanent funding for organizations like ours,” Rachelle Ditmore, cofounder of City of Refuge, says in the video. “Saying yes to Prop 27 means more people get the assistance that they need.”


“Californians for Solutions” is funded by Bally Bet, Barstool Sportsbook, BetMGM, DraftKings, Fanatics, FanDuel, and WynnBET. Those companies have contributed $150 million to the campaign so far.


Spot Says Most Tribes Oppose Prop 27

The other commercial that dropped Tuesday was from the “Coalition for Safe, Responsible Gaming,” a tribal-backed committee against Prop 27.


The coalition’s commercial seeks to counter a message “Californians for Solutions” sought to make earlier in the campaign – the tribal support for the online sports betting measure. The 15-second ad (see below) shows the three tribes that have come out in support of Prop 27 on one side of the screen, while the list of more than 50 tribes that oppose the proposition scroll on the other side.



James Siva, chairman of the California Nations Indian Gaming Association, called efforts by Prop 27 supporters “deceptive” and an attack on tribal sovereignty.


Prop 27 jeopardizes Indian gaming and vital funding that both gaming and non-gaming tribes use to provide housing, healthcare, firefighting services, education, cultural preservation, and other services for our communities,” Siva said.


Besides being against Prop 27, the “Coalition 먹튀검증 for Safe, Responsible Gaming” is also pro-Proposition 26. Prop 26 is an expanded gaming referendum allowing retail sportsbooks at tribal casinos and California-licensed racetracks. In addition, the measure would allow tribal casinos to offer dice-based table games and roulette. It would also allow tribes and other private entities to potentially take legal action against entities allegedly conducting illegal gambling operations in the state.


The group has raised more than $106 million from tribal gaming interests.


Two Other Groups Campaigning

Besides the “Californians for Solutions” and the “Coalition for Safe, Responsible Gaming,” two other political committees are raising money to get their messages across to voters regarding the California sports betting initiatives.


“Californians for Tribal Sovereignty and Safe Gaming” is another tribal-backed organization. But its focus is solely on defeating Prop 27. It has received more than $66 million from tribal gaming interests.


Meanwhile, state-licensed cardroom casinos have put together “Taxpayers Against Special Interest Monopolies,” an anti-Prop 26 committee. Cardrooms and their supporters are against the tribal gaming measure, mainly because of concerns about the Private Attorney General Act provisions they believe will target cardrooms and look to close them down.


That group has raised $41.5 million from cardrooms across the state.


The more than $364 million raised by the groups is considered a record raised in California for an initiative.

DAZN Sportsbook Now Live in the UK, Spain Coming Next

European sports media company DAZN has completed one of its goals for 2022. A few months after announcing plans to introduce 메이저놀이터 an online sportsbook, the platform is now live in the UK.


DAZN reporter

DAZN announced in April that it was teaming up with gaming solutions provider Pragmatic Play to create a branded sportsbook. The two have finished putting DAZN Bet together and are running a soft launch in the UK now.


DAZN wants to leverage its past experience in sports entertainment to offer a full “social gambling experience.” Provided the soft launch goes according to plan and DAZN works out any unexpected kinks, more launches are expected to follow in Europe and North America.


Joining Sports With Entertainment

DAZN has more than four million subscribers, according to the company. With that in mind, it anticipates a warm and immediate reception as it begins to introduce DAZN Bet. It chose the UK to start since its headquarters are there, and it can easily gauge the reception of the platform.


Of its worldwide userbase, DAZN has around 200,000 customers in the UK. However, it’s unclear how many of those are sports 메이저토토사이트 betting fans as well. Still, it’s a significant amount of people to be able to target at once through the soft launch.


We are on a mission to create a richer entertainment product that over time is integrated into DAZN’s daily destination sports business, where possible. Whilst this market entry will be a learning phase, our goal is to provide sports fans with a fantastic recreational sports betting product for DAZN’s global sports fans community,” said DAZN Bet CEO Mark Kemp.


As long as everything goes according to plan, DAZN plans on launching in Spain next. Then, it will extend its coverage to other European countries where it can receive a license.


At the same time, it also plans to take on Ontario, Canada. If it can stay on track, DAZN wants to be live across Europe and Ontario before the end of the year.


Leading the sports betting effort at DAZN is Mark Kemp. Until this month, he was the CEO of BoyleSports. Before that, he held several managing director positions, including an extensive run at Ladbrokes & Coral.


The sportsbook isn’t the only ancillary service DAZN has in mind. Monetization in sports is a growing theme, and the company sees a lot of possibilities. It reportedly is considering non-fungible tokens (NFT), new merchandising efforts, and more.


Working Out the Bugs

For the sportsbook to be successful, especially in Spain, DAZN has some work to do. The streaming platform has access to LaLiga games in the country. But so far, it hasn’t impressed sports fans.


Repeated technical glitches have made the viewing experience unpleasant for a lot of users. In addition, some users have reported issues trying to watch the MotoGP World Championship, as well as other sports.


DAZN is aware of the claims and has acknowledged that there were some setback in matches because of a greater influx of subscribers. Users have experienced waiting times and tedious buffering, with 49% of users having difficulty accessing the transmission, according to Ookla.


With a great amount of competition and 메이저토토 users’ money at stake, DAZN can’t afford any glitches with DAZN Bet. So it’s likely going to have to get its technical streaming issues sorted out in order for its sportsbook to make a splash in new markets.

Hawaii Five-Five: Legislator’s Sports Betting Bill Proposes Staggering 55% Tax Rate

At 51 percent, New York currently has the highest tax rate on sports betting in the US. Hawaii might be ready to say, “Hold my beer.”


Hawaii sports betting

In House Bill 1815 (HB 1815), Rep. John Mizuno (D) proposes a jaw-dropping 55 percent levy on sports wagering in Hawaii, assuming the famously anti-gambling state approves regulated sports betting.


There shall be levied, assessed, and collected a tax of 55 percent on all winnings paid out to any person by a sports wagering provider,” according to text of the legislation. “The tax revenues shall be deposited into the sports wagering special fund.”


In the bill, Mizuno proposes the creation of a seven-member board to oversee the implementation of sports wagering in the state and select sportsbook operators. If it comes to life in proposed form, it’d likely 먹튀검증 be a highly partisan board, because the governor would select three members while the president of the state Senate and the speaker of the state House would each pick two. Hawaii’s political landscape is dominated by Democrats.


Bill Faces Long Odds

Sports wagering is currently live and legal in 30 states and Washington, DC and legal though not yet live in another three states, according to the American Gaming Association (AGA).


However, that doesn’t imply broad support for sports wagering in Hawaii. The state is one of just two — Utah is the other — with no form of legal wagering. Previous proposals to alter that are always deemed long shots and ultimately meet the same fate: death in the legislature.


Assuming it could make it out of the House and Senate, Mizuno’s bill would need Gov. David Ige’s (D) signature to become law. But in late 2020, the governor opposed a proposed casino in Kapolei, the second-largest city on the island of Oahu.


That effort was also opposed by some Democrats, indicating a veto by Ige on sports wagering probably wouldn’t be overturned.


Tax Could Be Deterrent to Operators

Hawaii is home to 1.4 million residents – just 10 states and Washington, DC are smaller by population. Interestingly, some form of sports wagering is legal in seven of those jurisdictions, including Wyoming, which is the smallest state by population.


In the quests for revenue and customer acquisition, many sportsbook operators look to procure licenses in as many states as possible. However, Hawaii — assuming the proposed legislation even becomes 안전놀이터 law — could be a different animal.


Gaming companies are willing to deal with New York’s 51 percent tax rate for the simple fact that it’s New York and the fourth-largest state in the country. Hawaii lacks that obvious population advantage, and with an even higher wagering levy, the market could prove unappealing to operators.

Las Vegas Police Wanted to Arrest Cristiano Ronaldo for Alleged Palms Casino Rape

Las Vegas police (LVMPD) believed they had the evidence to arrest and charge soccer superstar Cristiano Ronaldo for an 메이저사이트 alleged 2009 rape at the Palms Casino, and even applied for an arrest warrant.


Ronaldo rape

That was just before Clark County AG Steve Wolfson decided in 2019 not to prosecute the Manchester United and Portugal forward. Wolfson said the allegations could not be “proven beyond reasonable doubt.”


The news that LVMPD was ready to make an arrest came from court transcripts from a civil case brought against the soccer player by his accuser, Kathryn Mayorga.


DA Says No

The comments were made by Mayorga’s lawyer, Leslie Stovall, during a Las Vegas federal court hearing in September. But the transcript has only just come to light.


What happened is when that [arrest warrant affidavit] was submitted to the district attorney’s office, Mr. Wolfson declined to prosecute,” said Stovall in the transcript, seen by The Sun.


“He doesn’t say why he decided to decline, and anything, any argument, is just speculation. It was within the statute of limitations,” Stovall continued.


Ronaldo Denies Claims

Ronaldo denies raping Mayorga. He says that the sex that occurred between them at his penthouse at the Palms on the night of June 13, 2009, was consensual.


According to the DA and court records, Mayorga called the LVMPD on June 13, 2009, to say she had been sexually assaulted. She was taken to a hospital for an examination which revealed she had circumferential rectal swelling with bruising and a laceration, injuries consistent with anal rape.


But she refused to disclose the 토토사이트추천 name of the alleged perpetrator to police because she feared public humiliation and retribution, according to court documents. As a result, police dropped the case. It would be reopened a decade later.


In 2010, Mayorga agreed to sign a non-disclosure agreement to drop any civil claims against Ronaldo for a $375,000 settlement. But Stovall claims she was coerced into this by the star’s team of legal fixers and reputation management specialists at a time when she was “mentally incapacitated.”


Football Leaks Documents

In 2018, Mayorga sued Ronaldo, claiming battery, intentional infliction of emotional distress, coercion, fraud, and abuse of a vulnerable person.


The catalyst was the leak of confidential documents from Ronaldo’s camp, which revealed the existence of the NDA. But they also included conversations purported to be between the soccer player and his lawyer, in which a person identified as Ronaldo appears to admit that the sex was not consensual.


This individual also mentions details that appear to corroborate Mayorga’s account, such as that he apologized and claimed he was “usually a gentleman” after the act.


The documents were passed to German news magazine Der Spiegel by the Football Leaks website. Ronaldo’s lawyers say the documents were stolen by hackers and falsified.


Mayorga took copies of the documents to LVMPD and asked them to reopen the case, which they did. It was dropped by Wolfson in July 2019.


A Las Vegas magistrate judge 토토사이트 recently recommended Mayorga’s case should be dismissed because much of it is based on privileged information, shared between Ronaldo and his lawyers. This should not have been publicly submitted as evidence, the judge said.

Indiana Sports Betting Handle Sets New Record, Tops $500M in January

Indiana sportsbooks set another record in January, as they broke the $500 million handle barrier for the first time.


Purdue Pete

The Indiana Gaming Commission (IGC) reported the state’s mobile operators and brick-and-mortar sites took $500.1 million in bets. That broke the previous record, set in November, by $36.4 million.


Football, thanks to the extra week in the NFL regular season and the expanded postseason, definitely helped boost the total. However, Indiana takes its basketball pretty seriously, too. IGC data shows that bettors placed $192.4 million worth of bets on pro and college hoops, compared to $118.3 million on football.


Parlay bets accounted for $122.6 토토사이트추천 million in wagers.


Sportsbooks reported taxable adjusted gross revenues (AGR) of $35.6 million. Indiana taxes sportsbook revenue at 9.5 percent, meaning the state received $3.4 million for the month.


For the fiscal year, which began in July, Indiana has reported a handle of $2.63 billion. Sportsbooks have earned adjusted revenues totaling $204.6 million, while the state has received $19.4 million in taxes.


Mobile Continues to Dominate Indiana Market

Data from IGC shows that 93 percent of the handle – $465.1 million – was wagered through online apps.


DraftKings continues to be the biggest operator in terms of handle, as it accepted $159.8 million in wagers for January. It took in revenues of $9.5 million. FanDuel reported an online handle of $126.4 million, with revenues of $7.6 million.


Caesars Sportsbook took a total of $73 million in wagers, with $54.9 million of that coming online. Its total AGR was $3.9 million, with $1.4 million won online. BetMGM reported a handle of $5.2 million and an AGR of $5 million.


Indiana’s casinos reported a combined taxable AGR of $174.1 million for January. Once again, Hard Rock Northern Indiana reported the largest AGR, with the Gary casino winning $28.6 million for the month. Horseshoe Hammond won $26.2 million.


The state received $50.2 million in wagering taxes from the casinos in January and $3.8 million in supplemental taxes.


New Sports Betting App Coming This Month?

Currently, Indiana has 13 licensed mobile sports betting operators. Each casino in the state is allowed to partner with three skins. That means there could be as many as 39 operators eventually.


The next app to launch apparently will be SBK, a sportsbook operated by British-based Smarkets. Information from the IGC shows SBK will receive its authorization to launch its mobile app on Feb. 28. Indiana would be the second state for SBK. Currently, the app is available for wagering in Colorado.


SBK will serve as a skin for the Rising Star Casino & Resort in Rising Sun.


Hard Rock Northern Indiana is the only casino among the 12 currently operating that does not have a sportsbook. The IGC did issue a temporary vendor license to Hard Rock for retail and online operations last month.


Indiana’s 13th casino will be the 토토사이트 Queen of Terre Haute, owned and operated by Churchill Downs Inc. There is no timetable yet for construction on the $240 million development. But the Louisville-based company has applied for a zoning change on land in the west central Indiana city, and officials are expected to take up the request next month.

Bob Baffert Suspension Stay Denied Again in Kentucky, Judge Will Hear Request

Bob Baffert will not have his 90-day suspension stayed as he appeals the ruling stewards made regarding disqualified Kentucky Derby winner Medina Spirit. That was the decision of the Kentucky Horse Racing Commission, which 메이저놀이터 met in a specially called meeting on Friday to consider Baffert’s request.


Baffert

Horse trainer Bob Baffert celebrates as Medina Spirit finishes first past the wire in the 2021 Kentucky Derby. Baffert now faces a 90-day suspension due to Medina Spirit failing a post-race drug test and being disqualified as the winner.

Earlier in the week, Baffert and his attorneys went before a judge in Frankfort, asking that the suspension be postponed. That’s as he challenges the finding Medina Spirit had excessive amounts of betamethasone in his system when the colt finished first in last year’s Kentucky Derby. Friday’s meeting came about from that hearing. But now Franklin Circuit Judge Thomas Wingate will hear the case on March 17 to determine if a stay should be issued.


The suspension was supposed to start this Tuesday. However, it will remain in limbo until Judge Wingate makes his ruling, which he is supposed to do within days after the March 17 hearing.


The timing is significant. Because of reciprocity rules, a suspension handed down in one state is recognized in all others. Without a stay, the 90-day ban would make Baffert ineligible to field horses in upcoming Kentucky Derby prep races – some of which are considered major races on their own – as well as the Preakness Stakes, the second jewel in racing’s Triple Crown.


In addition to the suspension, Baffert was also fined $7,500. With Medina Spirit subsequently disqualified as the race’s winner, stewards also ruled the Zedan Stables, owners of the late colt, must forfeit the nearly $1.9 million in purse money as well.


Baffert Files Two Suits

With the KHRC decision not to issue a stay, it means that the Hall of Fame thoroughbred trainer now must fight a legal battle on two fronts. That’s in order to have a chance to potentially field horses in this year’s Kentucky Derby.


After Medina Spirit’s initial drug test came back positive, Churchill Downs Inc. announced its own suspension against the trainer. The Louisville-based company banned Baffert for two years, not just from its namesake track, but all of the company’s racing facilities. Further, Churchill Downs also banned Baffert’s horses from earning any points in Derby prep races.


That punishment has not kept the trainer from entering horses in those races, but it has affected the standings to an extent.


On the day before Baffert had a hearing in Franklin Circuit Court this week, the trainer filed a lawsuit against Churchill Downs Inc. in an effort to get the two-year ban struck down. Baffert claims in the suit he was denied due process, while Churchill Downs called the filing baseless.


At this point, Baffert’s attorneys are looking at the cases optimistically, as they have claimed their client has not received a fair shake from either the track or Kentucky regulators. They reacted in disbelief after the commission denied a stay last week and on Friday.


The saving grace is eventually we will be 메이저토토사이트 before an unbiased adjudicator,” Clark Brewster told Casino.org in an email Friday.


Baffert also faces a possible suspension from the New York Racing Association. That operator handed down its own suspension last year after the Churchill Downs ban. However, a federal judge ruled in favor of the trainer last year, saying NYRA failed to give Baffert a chance to defend himself.


NYRA held that hearing in January, and a decision is pending.


“Lance Armstrong of Horse Racing”

Baffert has three horses running in Derby prep races on Saturday. Rockefeller will race in the Gotham Stakes at Aqueduct in New York, while Doppleganger and Armagnac are scheduled to go in the San Felipe Stakes at Santa Anita.


While the 3-year-olds get the most attention because of the Kentucky Derby, Baffert does have a large stable of other horses that race primarily out of his California base. Brewster told the KHRC Friday that Baffert has 88 horses, and a three-month suspension would be devastating to the trainer’s operation and to the workers under him.


Brewster did not get a sympathetic ear from commission members. Nor did he get one from Marty Irby, executive director for Animal Wellness Action. Irby, who played a significant role in getting the Horseracing Integrity and Safety Act passed by Congress, said Baffert is finally “facing the consequences,” and that 메이저토토 punishing him can be a pivotal moment for the sport.


“Bob Baffert is the Lance Armstrong of horse racing and has riddled the sport with scandal after scandal, unchecked for years,” Irby said.
