ADELSON SHAPING UP FOR ANOTHER MAJOR CONFRONTATION
2014-08-25

Las Vegas Sands multi-billionaire owner Sheldon Adelson has been making headlines with his implacable opposition to online gambling in the United States, but he may face a more formidable foe to his company's expansion in Florida.
The investment publication Motley Fool reports that the Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando is a cornerstone of Disney's global operations, comprising more than 31 percent of the company's revenue in 2013, and one of its most successful and fast-growing enterprises.
And it sees attempts by Adelson and others to introduce massive casino resorts into the region as threats, potentially diluting the massive flow of 18.6 million visitors it enjoyed in 2013.
Earlier this year Disney vigorously opposed legislation to allow casino expansion into Florida, led by Adelson's company.
At present, state law in Florida allows for eight Native American casinos with Vegas-style gambling, and 31 pari-mutuel betting facilities. The threat to Disney is that LVS can offer a family-friendly, fully integrated resort that includes not just gambling, but many forms of non-gaming entertainment.
With theme park revenues alone of $14 billion last year, Disney's clout outpaces even LVS, which reported total revenues of $13.77 billion in 2013.
The issue is being highlighted as the November election of the state's next governor looms, with the main contenders Republican incumbent Rick Scott (known to have visited Adelson and to have ambitions beyond Florida) and Democrat Charlie Crist.
The two are embroiled in an at times vicious political competition for power as each seeks to demean the morals and business-development potential of the other, aided by competing state interests.
Both have been treading carefully around the gambling and casino issue, but the media and the voting public are becoming increasingly insistent that they are specific in their views, and the expectation is that they will have to nail their colours to the mast soon.
Given his relationship with Adelson and ambitions for the White House, Scott seems likely to back the LVS expansion into Florida. He has a record of claiming that gambling expansion can create more jobs and tax revenues for the state.
A study commissioned by Florida lawmakers in October last year showed that allowing full casino resorts could increase spending in Florida by $1.5 billion annually.
According to Bloomberg business news, Disney has contributed $1.7 million to Florida lawmakers since 2012, though gaming companies and interests combined have contributed $3.4 million.
That sort of money invariably gets the attention of lawmakers, and the indications are that Adelson could have a major fight on his hands with a formidable opponent in Disney.




REALISTIC GAMES AMONG FIRST TO BE HANDED NEW U.K. LICENCE
2014-08-06

British online gambling software developer Tom Brady betting odds to win Poker Madden Betting Pandemonia Realistic Games has become one of the first producers of slots and table games to be granted a Remote Gambling Software Operating Licence by the UK Gambling Commission.

The company is now among only a handful of suppliers who have the required licensing in place to comply with the new Gambling (Licensing and Advertising) Act which comes into effect on October 1.

The Act requires operators that provide remote gambling services to British consumers to obtain a UK licence. From January 2015, these operators will also require their suppliers to be licensed in the UK too.

Realistics commercial director, Andy Harris, believes the granting of the licence well in advance of the legislative changes is important for both existing and prospective customers.

He said: There are many things for our customers to attend to as a result of the introduction of the Act, so getting our licensing in place early gives them one less thing to worry about.

Furthermore, we hope that it provides potential customers with another positive reason to choose Realistic Games as a new supplier partner.

This licence represents a significant step for us. Weve worked closely with the Gambling Commission throughout the application process and have now passed the most stringent tests of probity and due diligence.

Just as importantly, we are ahead of most of our rivals. As we are already compliant with the new regulations well not be caught up in any last minute scramble to gain licences or comply with the new regulations.

The grant of this licence follows the award of a B2B Remote Gambling Licence in Gibraltar to the Realistic Games group in February 2014.

Among the major UK-facing operators Realistic now supply cross-channel content to, are bet365, Ladbrokes, William Hill, BetVictor, and Paddy Power.



ONLINE BETTING COMPANY TO SPONSOR TOP SNOOKER TOURNEY
2014-02-26

UK snooker's most prestigious invitation tournament, The Masters, will be sponsored by online betting firm Dafabet for the first time this season, reports the publication World Snooker.
The Dafabet Masters runs from January 12 to 19 at Alexandra Palace in London and features the world's leading 16 players, including defending champion Mark Selby, World Champion Ronnie O'Sullivan, world number one Neil Robertson, Chinese ace Ding Junhui, Judd Trump and John Higgins.
With a top prize of GBP 200,000 the competition should generate plenty of excitement and action, and will be telecast by the British Broadcasting Corporation to the millions of snooker fans around the world.
Founded in 1975, the Masters Tournament has a rich history of world-class snooker action. Dafabet sponsored the Players Tour Championship Grand Finals last season and will therefore be aware of the massive global audience that can be reached through snooker, and the brand awareness that this can deliver.
John Cruces, head of sports marketing and sponsorships at Dafabet, said this week: "2014 is going to be a huge year for sport, and sponsoring the Masters is a great way for us to kick the year off."
