    In our first story this week, Australia is introducing facial recognition technology as a way to tackle the problem of gambling addiction. Currently, the tech, which employs Artificial Intelligence to scan guests' faces, is installed at the Warilla Hotel, but the plan is to roll it out across all gambling venues in the state of New South Wales in the next year.

    The software will match the images in the existing database and will identify only gamblers who have been voluntarily barred from betting sites. The state believes that facial recognition will help curb gambling addiction which is a serious issue across the country, However, critics claim that the technology is a dangerous and invasive attack on privacy and that it undermines basic human rights.

    Next up, some visitors to Apple's App Store reported last week that they noticed some curious suggestions as they were searching for new apps. It seems that, after the release of new versions of operating systems for iPhones and iPads, advertisements started to appear outside the "Search" tab, where they had been relegated previously.

    An even bigger problem has been that some of the suggestions included inappropriate content for certain user groups, such as ads for gambling and crypto schemes appearing next to apps for addiction recovery or kids' games. After much protest, Apple has paused ads for gambling apps and similar categories of App Store products. Also, they have promised to fix the glitch, as they call it, as soon as possible.

    In our next story, state lotteries in the United States come under scrutiny for predatory gambling practices. The next Powerball jackpot is expected to be among the largest in US history, estimated at around $1.9 billion. With jackpots rising, millions of people continue to shell out their dollars, purchasing tickets and dreaming of scoring the life-changing prize.

    However, these dream stories also have a darker side. Critics say that state-run lotteries are one of the overlooked examples of systemic racism in the country. Lottery advertising and marketing campaigns use the lack of regulation in the field to target low-income communities, commonly made up of minority groups. Unfortunately, this practice is likely to continue as there seems to be no intention from government regulators to act on these issues.

    In our last story, last week has proven to be rather fruitful for Las Vegas visitors as several players ended up taking home huge prizes.

    One of the biggest wins came at the Caesars Palace, where one player scored a massive jackpot worth $200,000. The lucky winner nailed the massive prize while playing the Double Gold slots machine.

    Other casinos across the Vegas Valley had their share of huge payouts, too. A visitor from Nebraska won the $11,420 jackpot on Thursday at the Palace Station casino. Another big prize came at the Rio casino, where one of the guests won $32,000 playing the Double Double Ultimate X video poker machine. Finally, a player at the Strat casino poker table triggered the progressive jackpot on Wednesday, pocketing over $25,0

    Rock Paper Scissors Comes To Las Vegas Casinos

    Rock Paper Scissors Comes To Las Vegas Casinos

    PlaySlots4RealMoney.com, CasinoSlotsMoney.com, Livedealerscasino.org, EasyMobileCasino.com & OnlineBlingo.com bring you the gambling news podcast.

    In our first story, the game we all loved and used to settle playground disputes is making its Vegas debut. The brand-new Rock, Paper, Scissors slot machine will be featured on the casino floor at the Circa Casino in Las Vegas. According to the casino representatives, Circa will be the only property in the world where the players will have a chance to test the new game.

    The game itself was created by the Japanese-based gaming manufacturer, Azure Gaming, and developed for their Muso Curve 55HB slot cabinet. Rock, Paper, Scissors was first unveiled on the final day of the recent Global Gaming Expo, held in Las Vegas, and has already attracted plenty of attention in the industry, promising to be a big success at Circa.
    Next up, Las Vegas is known for many things, but the Christmas celebration is certainly not one of them. However, that's likely about to change as Resorts World Las Vegas is looking to become the first establishment to offer some clean, family fun during the upcoming holiday season. The casino located on the North Strip will prepare an 85,000-square-foot outdoor Christmas spectacular in an effort to find a way to stand out among other top-tier properties in town.

    The celebration will last from November 25 to January 1 and will include plenty of fun and exciting events. Among other things, Resorts World's Christmas Village will feature ice skating, interactive games, live entertainment, special drinks and treats, holiday shopping, and, of course, Santa and Mrs. Claus.

    In our next story, the race for downstate New York casino licenses is heating up, and Coney Island is the latest potential landing spot to emerge. The seaside town is already known for its entertainment offerings, and a prominent real estate developer is looking to add a casino to the list of what this Brooklyn neighborhood has to offer to its visitors.

    The New York-based real estate development, leasing, and management firm, Thor Equities, is reportedly preparing a pitch as it looks to land one of the three coveted downstate gaming concessions. The company already owns some major properties in the area, including the retail shopping district adjacent to the Cyclone roller coaster. However, the firm is likely to face some stiff competition, including the Mets' owner Steve Cohen.

    In our last story this week, illegal gambling establishments have been an issue in Ohio for a while now, but the state seems intent to crack down on these operations. The latest news from Highland County certainly signals the state's determination to deal with this issue.

    Last week, agents with the Ohio Casino Control Commission served search warrants on five businesses located in Hillsboro and Greenfield. This comes as a part of an investigation into illegal gambling activities in this area. During the execution of search warrants, the OCCC gaming agents, with the support of the local police departments, seized more than 300 gambling machines, along with cash and documents. At the moment, no arrests have been made, but the investigation is still in progress.

    In our first story, Mohegan Sun Casino & Resort in Connecticut has been named "the Best Casino Hotel" by USA Today. This is the fifth time in a row that the casino complex operated by the Mohegan Tribe has been recognized as the best gaming, entertainment, and leisure destination in the country. The resort, located in Uncasville, earned the title thanks to its design that tells the story of the Mohegan people and their culture, luxurious rooms outfitted with the latest technology, and other numerous premium amenities, such as a pool, spa, and fitness center. 

    This year, the USA Todays list looks a bit surprising due to the one glaring omission. For the first time in years, no Las Vegas resort has made the Top 10. 
    Next up, Macau casino stocks soared on Monday, as the city officials indicated the Chinese government is readying to open up travel and ease the Covid restrictions. After a rough two years due to the repeated lockdowns, this is finally a piece of good news for Macau casino operators, as now people can return in numbers to the world's largest gambling hub. 

    After the government announcement, US casinos stocks with Macau's exposure took off in Monday's market trading. The top two performers were Wynn Resorts and Las Vegas Sands, with a 12 and 11.7 percent rise, respectively. This is a positive development for the American casinos in Macau, which have been in a downtrend since the United States launched the trade war against China in 2018.
    In our next story, the Philippines are about to shut down the operations of 175 offshore gambling companies and deport nearly 40,000 Chinese workers. The action comes as a part of the major crackdown by the government on the notoriously shady online casino industry. 

    The whole online gaming sector in the Philippines has been rapidly developing since 2016 as casinos saw the South-Asian country with liberal gambling laws as a perfect location from which to target gamblers in China where gambling is illegal. At one point, before the pandemic, Philippine offshore gambling operators had more than 300,000 Chinese employees. However, after numerous reports on criminal activities, including murders and kidnapping committed by Chinese nationals against their compatriots, the government had to resort to tough measures. 
    In our last story this week, Staten Island President Vito Fosella has invited interested developers and the New York State Gaming Commission to take a chance and consider this borough as a potential landing spot for the new casino in downstate New York. The Commission will award three Class III full casino licenses, and Fosella hopes that one of these will end up in his part of town. 

    As the only part of New York without any type of gambling, Staten Island would probably be a desirable location for potential developers. Fosella has already suggested a perfect location, at the site of the failed New York Wheel project. Sitting across from Manhattan in picturesque surroundings, this spot could easily become a destination with both gambling and tourist appeal.

    In our first story, one of the largest crypto gambling platforms is facing a massive lawsuit. State UK, a company that sponsors Everton FC of the English Premier League, is being sued for $400 million by the former business partner of its co-founders.

    The man behind the lawsuit, Florida resident Christopher Freeman, claims that Primedice, a predecessor of Stake, was his idea and that he played a major role in the company's development. According to court filings, Freeman has allegedly set up Primedice with his school friends and current Stake owners, and it was his idea to expand to the crypto market. Pivot to crypto gambling has made Stake one of the fastest-growing companies in the industry, with a current estimated value of more than $1 billion.

    Next up, Macau has long been known as the gambling capital of the world, but that status is likely about to change. While the rest of the industry across the globe is rapidly recovering from the Covid pandemic, China's Covid Zero policy, travel bans, and new gambling laws have made Macau an unfavorable market. in August, the Macau gambling revenue was a mere 9% of the pre-pandemic levels. At the same time, the Philippines, South Korea, and Singapore are already at around 70% of the pre-pandemic revenue.

    Several leading suppliers of casino equipment have already announced that they will be moving their resources to more welcoming markets. In most cases, the new destination is the Philippines, which is quickly becoming a significant player in the Asian gambling industry.

    In our next story, Japan's Universal Entertainment Corporation has taken over the operations of the Okada Manila gambling resort. The $3.3 billion casino is the largest establishment of its kind in Southeast Asia, and taking control of this property is a major coup for the Japanese company.

    The takeover came over after a long-running dispute between new and former operators, but, according to Philippine gambling regulators, the process was generally peaceful. This also means that Universal will name new members on the board of Tiger Resort Leisure and Entertainment, the company responsible for the operation of Okada Manila Casino and Resort. The previous members were installed by a group led by Japanese tycoon Kazuo Okada who has a long history of confrontations with Universal Entertainment.

    In our last story this week, legal betting in Kansas is off to a rocky start, and the main culprits are bettors from neighboring Missouri.

    According to GeoComply Solutions, on the first day of legal sports wagering in Kansas, 16,000 attempts to place a bet from Missouri were blocked. Almost two-thirds of this number came from the Missouri portion of Kansas City. According to the state's new gambling law, anyone over the age of 21 is allowed to place a bet, no matter what state they're from. However, do to so, they have to be within Kansas state limits.

    This has proven to be particularly frustrating for Missouri bettors who live in the same metro area where betting is legal, and yet, they can't place wagers from their homes.

    Sports Betting In Kansas 🏆Crypto Kickstarter 🥇California Gambling Proposal

    Sports Betting In Kansas 🏆Crypto Kickstarter 🥇California Gambling Proposal

    PlaySlots4RealMoney.com, CasinoSlotsMoney.com, Livedealerscasino.org, EasyMobileCasino.com & OnlineBlingo.com bring you the gambling news podcast.

    In our first story, a promising Kickstarter crypto game goes bust. In 2021, at the height of the crypto boom, a blockchain-based, Pokemon-style video game called Untamed Isles raised over $500,000 on Kickstarter. Fast-forward a year later, and the game is more or less dead. It seems that Phat Loot, the studio behind the game, is so broke that it can't even refund its backers. 

    Posting on the game's Steam page, the developers said that they will pause the development and put the game on indefinite hiatus, as they're unable to financially keep up with the planned schedule. They denied claims that the backers' money was invested in cryptocurrencies and said that all funds went towards the game development. The game was originally scheduled to launch on October 6. 
    Next up, the campaign surrounding California gambling propositions is breaking all the spending records. So far, committees supporting and opposing Propositions 26 and 27 have raised over $357 million. Since June 30, several groups, looking to get a piece of this potentially very lucrative betting market, have each been spending an average of $16.5 million per week.

    In two months, California voters will decide whether to back two propositions that will bring legal gambling to the state. Proposition 26 would expand types of betting at tribal casinos and racetracks to in-person sports wagering. Voting Yes on the other measure, Prop 27, would legalize online betting across the state. With stakes this high, the lavish campaign spending will likely continue until the ballots are mailed out in October. 
    In our next story, Butler National Corporation will now offer sports betting in Kansas. The company has received a green light from the Kansas Lottery as their sports wagering management contract via a subsidiary operating Boot Hill Casino & Resort was approved. The agreement follows a similar deal the casino has made with DraftKings. 

    According to the details of the contract, the patrons will not only be able to place wagers in person at the Dodge City casino, but also bet online through the interactive sports wagering platform. At the moment, the team at the Butler National Corporation is focused on launching DraftKings’ mobile and retail sportsbook at Boot Hill casino. Per provisions of the Kansas sports betting law, state casinos can have up to 50 marketing partners. 
    In our last story this week, the Pokagon Band of Potawatomi opened the expanded gaming area at the Four Winds Casino in South Bend. The representatives of the tribe ceremonially cut the ribbon on Friday, opening the door to all visitors. 

    The new 40,000-square foot gaming floor includes 850 slot machines, 11 gaming tables, and a brand-new high-limit area. Plus, it features an additional cage and cashier area. The gaming space is just a part of a major expansion of the casino which is set to be completed in early 2023. When finished, the complex will include the 23-story hotel, the largest in St. Joseph County, a convention area and meeting space, lounge, bar, spa, and a swimming pool on the roof of the hotel.

    In our first story this week, one lucky player hit a life-changing jackpot at the Thunder Valley Casino Resort on Friday. The Sacramento-area casino announced that the winner is Roberto Arcueno, who scored a prize worth over $1.5 million. Arcueno nailed the massive jackpot while playing the Dancing Drums Explosion, a slot machine where the minimum bet is a measly one cent. 

    Every slot machine on the casino floor is wired into the lucrative Thunder Strike progressive jackpot. So, playing any of them offers players a chance to hit big at any given time, meaning that they never know when and on which machine they can strike gold. The Friday jackpot is just one of many that land across the gaming floor every month. 

    Next up, more big wins from the casino floors. A poker player from Missoula, Montana won $131,000 in what was probably less than a minute. Last week, Ross Bittner and his wife Ruth went to Vegas for a vacation. Little did they know that one poker game will change their lives. On Thursday night, Ross decided to join a game of three-card poker at one of the gaming tables at the Cromwell Casino on the Las Vegas Strip. After only one hand, before he even got a chance to get comfortable, Mr. Bittner triggered the progressive jackpot worth well over $100,000. 

    After the big win, the lucky winner spoke with the Cromwell representatives and said that most of the winnings will end up in the hands of his grandchildren. 

    In our next story, some of the most popular Twitch streamers are making millions from crypto gambling platforms, while a large number of their fans are going bankrupt. According to the recent Bloomberg report, some members of the audience of the largest Twitch stars are filing for bankruptcy after following their favorite streamers in playing crypto gambling games. 

    Crypto gambling is among the most watched content categories on the Twitch platform. And, along with this popularity, come advertising deals with crypto gambling sites, often worth millions of dollars. However, fans of these streamers, often underage, easily get lured into gambling by the promise of fun and camaraderie. Unfortunately, they often end up with empty bank accounts, as they don't have the safety net of lucrative sponsorships. 

    In our last story, some mixed news for Massachusetts gamblers. It seems that legal online betting is almost a done deal, while the destiny of online lottery still hangs in balance. A couple of weeks ago, the state's legislature was apparently ready to legalize online sports wagering as a part of the new Economic Development Bill. Per reports, the lottery was also supposed to be included in the bill.

    However, the revelation that almost $3 billion in tax relief could be required by the new law has raised some concerns about how to separate those tax measures across different gaming sectors. While the lawmakers are exploring new ways to generate sustainable revenue for the state, the process has been put on halt, at least until the end of the year.
