Macau | Casino games dominate local gaming industry - Macau Business

Image
Macau (MNA) – A report released on the economic diversification of Macau in 2017 by the Statistics and Census Bureau (DSEC) found that the gaming industry was dominated by games of chance, or games played within casinos, which comprises 99 per cent of gross gaming revenue (GGR).GGR coming from games of chance amounted to MOP265.74 billion (US$32.9 billion) in 2017, up by MOP42.35 billion in 2016.However, this was lower than the peak GGR from games of chance which reached MOP360.75 billion and MOP351.52 billion in 2013 and 2014 respectively.Revenue from sports lotteries, horse racing, greyhound racing (in the now defunct Canidrome race track), Chinese lottery, instant lottery and so on amounted to MOP864 million in 2017.Within games of chance, VIP gaming had made up the largest share, accounting for 56.9 per cent in 2017, up by 3.4 percentage points year-on-year.However, this was lower than the peak years between 2012 and 2014, for which VIP gaming had comprised over 60 per cent of GGR…

Hovdey: Roulette bet straddles horseplaying landscape - Daily Racing Form

Image
EmailAs post time for the fifth at Santa Anita Park approached on Wednesday’s opening-day card, a colleague perused the top of the program page and mumbled to no one in particular, “There are 11 different ways to bet this race.”He was right. The full field of maiden 2-year-olds could be played win, place, and show; as the first leg of the 20-cent Rainbow Six, the $1 rolling super high 5, a $2 rolling double, and a 50-cent rolling pick three; grouped in a $1 exacta, a 50-cent trifecta, and a $1 minimum superfecta made up of 10-cent combinations; along with the brand new $2 Horse Racing Roulette that bundles runners as red, black, or green teams played as single entities.No quinella, sad to say, but boy, what a menu. Denny’s just conceded the crown.Today’s racing managements seem obliged to trot out new ways to separate players from their money every time a fresh meet opens its doors, rivaling the selection of craft beers at their clubhouse bars. And, once a new bet is applied, there us…

Calling all casino nerds, draft casino regulations released - Arkansas Times

Image
Byron Freeland, attorney for the state Racing Commission, has provided me with a copy of draft rules for regulating expanded casino gambling in Arkansas. It's more than 340 pages, so I'm just going to leave it right here for now and invite some crowd-sourcing for items of interest. In case you didn't know, the Racing Commission regulates casino gambling in Arkansas. Until now, that has meant oversight of the so-called "electronic games of skill," or electronic forms of slot machines, craps, roulette  and poker that have been allowed along with horse and dog race gambling at Oaklawn and Southland parks.A new constitutional amendment allows full-fledged casino games at the track casinos, along with sports wagering, and also authorizes casinos in Jefferson and Pope counties, subject to a permitting process.No formal applications for casinos have been filed yet, pending adoption of rules. But local authorities in Jefferson County have already endorsed the Quapaw tri…

A New York Bookie Nears the End of the Line - USA Online Casino News

Image
It Began with the Supreme CourtIt has been about six months since the United States Supreme Court ruled that states could decide to legalize gambling. Before May, gambling was legal in only one state—Nevada. Nevada legalized sportsbooks long before sports gambling was banned by the US government in the early 1990s. However, since the Supreme Court ruling, Mississippi, New Jersey, Delaware, West Virginia, and Pennsylvania have legalized single sports gambling. Many more states are expected to legalize gambling in the next year. More than twenty states should legalize gambling before the end of 2019. hese changes meanSports gambling is moving from the backrooms and paper trails to the slick shops in the casinos, racetracks or online.The Neighborhood BookieEddie is an old-school bookie in New York City.

Players Warming to Live Roulette Games Online - Casino Chronicle

When a player has a bad run of luck gambling online playing any type of casino games, they will often be convinced that the games they are playing are somehow rigged or have been designed in such a way that they cannot sustain a long sequence of winning outcomes.However, both casino operators and game designers alike have gone to great lengths to prove their games are fair and random, and virtually all gambling commissions and gaming authorities will not allow an online casino to operate unless they can prove their games are 100% fair.Even though they know the games are playing have been certified as being fair and completely random, many players have now switch their gaming activities to playing at live casino sites, as opposed to software driven casino sites.By doing so they are going to be able to play casino table games such as Roulette and play them remotely from home, but their bets and wagers are being placed on real life Roulette tables based in land based casino venues.Player…

Property roulette - Macau Business

By Tony Lai On the heels of the first interest rate hike for more than a decade, coupled with the continuous simmering trade war between China and the United States, Hong Kong has seen more and more homeowners offer steep discounts for property sales in recent times, while new residential projects have failed to generate the hot sales they once did.The situation has led to more bearish calls for the Hong Kong home property market, as well as the Mainland Chinese sector, in the near future. What about Macau? Pundits believe the number of residential transactions might shrink despite the push by some project developers, although prices could remain stable – at least for now.Dong Fu Ye Property Development Co. Ltd. launched about 100 more flats at its luxury Waterfront Duet residences near the Macau Yacht Club in Fai Chi Kei for presale in November. The project, which has offered presales in phases since January, comprises some 1,000 units in all and will be completed by the last quarter…

Single Zero Roulette Vanishing from Vegas Casinos - Casino Chronicle

Image
Roulette is a table game with a relatively low house edge, but only if players play the right variant. For some Roulette games have been designed in such a way that gamblers will be up against a very high house edge, and players do need to be aware of the different tables they will come across.U.S based players will of course be very familiar with the double zero version of that game, which quite aptly is known as American Roulette, and in addition to the standard 36 individual numbers, from one through to thirty six there is both a single zero and double zero on the wheel and betting layout.However, that is one of the worst games you can ever play in a casino, for the house edge is 5.27%, which is huge when compared to games such as Blackjack and Baccarat.In places such as Vegas, it is always the casinos located in places such as the Downtown area and off the Strip that tend to offer the best paybacks on their games, and that is true when it comes to games such as Roulette.Therefore …

Looking Back at the Best Slots and Casino Games from 2018 - GameSpace.com

In a market that is constantly expanding, it is becoming increasingly difficult for new games to stand out. Yet just because something is difficult does not mean that it is not achievable; 2018 has seen a plethora of new slots and casino games thriving, an indictment of how game developers are still finding inventive ways to deliver a twist on a classic formula.

The very nature of slots is simple and cannot be manipulated; buttons are pressed, reels circulate and symbols align. However, each slot has its own distinct identity, offerin…
