Up until recently, US slot players have only been able to dream about winning a jackpot at an online casino. With the laws changing in Nevada, New Jersey, and Delaware, American gamblers will soon no longer have to dream, and their jackpots can become a reality. Mobile Casino Gambling.

This past week, a gambler in Switzerland showed just how exciting winning a jackpot can be, not once, but twice. A player identified as Stephen W. from Switzerland, won a $24,560 jackpot on April 17th, while playing the Burning Desire slot at All Slots Casino.

According to the casino, the following day, Stephen logged on to the casino from his home computer, and hit another jackpot on the same game, this time for $30,000.

"The odds of hitting one jackpot are astronomical," said Gaming Analyst Bernie Waldern. "The odds of hitting two jackpots in two days, on the same game, that's darn near impossible. That is one lucky gambler." Mobile Casino Gambling.

Companies such as Caesars Entertainment, and Wynn Resorts are hoping that they can bring the same kind of joy to US gamblers sometime this Fall. Nevada appears prepared to become the first state in the country to offer online casinos, and players in the state are filled with anticipation.

"It's going to be so much fun to be able to play poker online and not have to go to the casinos," said Ivy Burns. "I've played competitively for years, and there are times I don't feel like getting dressed and going to the casino. Playing online, without the fear of getting in trouble, will be refreshing."

Foreign gaming companies have been busy over the past year preparing for an entrance into the US market. PokerStars, the online site that was indicted by the US in 2011, has partnered with several US companies with the hope of re-entering the US market in the coming months. 888 Holdings is another company that has been proactive in partnering with US gaming companies.

New Jersey, following the lead of Nevada and Delaware, not only pased online gambling laws, but will soon allow residents in their state to bet on sporting events at sports books.

More than 20 charity-minded ladies flocked to the Queen’s Road casino to enjoy a glamorous evening of fun, shopping, raffles and a taste of gambling on the roulette and black jack tables.
Kind-hearted women from across Reading took to the gaming tables, but it was all for a good cause.

Fundraisers organised a ladies’ night at the Grosvenor Casino on November 8 to raise money for hospice charity Sue Ryder.

More than 20 charity-minded ladies flocked to the Queen’s Road casino to enjoy a glamorous evening of fun, shopping, raffles and a taste of gambling on the roulette and black jack tables. Almost £400 was raised to help Sue Ryder to continue to provide specialist palliative care for patients and their families through Duchess of Kent House Hospice in Tilehurst and Nettlebed Hospice.

One of the stallholders, Louise Patuzzo, met Lady Sue Ryder more than 40 years ago, when the inspirational founder of the nationwide charity visited a school in Windsor.

Mrs Patuzzo, 56, who was manning a glittering jewellery stand with friend Louise Todd, said: “I met Lady Ryder when she visited our school with a group of concentration camp survivors who shared their stories.
“The pupils cooked for them and sung songs, and listened to their stories, which would often reduce us to tears.”

Thanking the casino staff, Sue Ryder’s Marion Haynes said: “It was a fun night and we would like to thank Grosvenor Casino Reading and their staff for arranging such a wonderful night and for providing a superb buffet for all to share.

“Our thanks also go to all the stall holders for coming along and making the night such a success.”

Simon Adams, Grosvenor Casino’s sales manager, said: “It was a great pleasure to work alongside Marion and her Sue Ryder colleagues and volunteers.

“All the team here pulled together to put on a great event for a worthwhile cause and all the guests had a fantastic evening.

“We ended up raising nearly £400, and would love to work with Sue Ryder again in the future.”

A new GTA Online update includes audio clips that seem to give away a bunch of new features, including horse racing and indoor bike racing.

The clips were apparently included in a recent file called mpdlc.awc, which was part of the recent 1.06 update for GTA Online. Hackers taking apart the file discovered a range of short dialogue snippets from known mission givers, that allude to a variety of new features.

As with any leak like this could be fake, but the voice-acting does seem professional and a lot harder to fake than a quick Photoshop.

Or at least some of it does, the dialogue on some of the other clips from YouTube user ‘Franken Stein’ is very odd, but since he offers no explanation of how he got them it’s hard to say what’s going on.

Either way the features implied by the clips include an interactive casino (there’s already a non-interactive one in the game); new business and property investments, pink slip races (i.e. races where you can bet your car as the prize); horse racing (again there’s already a racetrack in the game); indoor off-road racing, including bikes; an enhanced camera and the ability to spy on people.

Some of these clips are really long though, so if you notice something we’ve missed in them do let us know via email and we’ll add it to this story.

Rockstar is planning to update GTA Online with new features on a regular basis, but it’s also recently hinted that new story-based content is imminent. So it’s possible these new features relate to Grand Theft Auto V’s story mode, although more likely both.

So far, the cities of Tokyo and Osaka have garnered much of the attention, but even towns like Sasebo, a once-proud shipbuilding centre in southern Japan, and the ageing port city of Otaru to the north, are hoping to set up casinos to draw tourists, generate tax revenues and reverse demographic decline.

"Hot springs, Japanese cuisine, Mt. Fuji and geisha (female entertainers) - these traditional Japanese things alone are not enough," said Kanekiyo Morita, a hotel executive who has proposed a pyramid-shaped casino in Atami, a hot springs town in central Japan.

"Japan's population is rapidly declining and, for tourist towns, getting foreigners to visit is extremely important."

Lawmakers are planning to submit an initial bill aimed at legalizing casinos by December 6 - when the current session of parliament ends - and enact concrete laws in 2015. The bill is thought to have a decent chance of passing with the business-friendly Liberal Democratic Party in power and Prime Minister Shinzo Abe backing the move.

The lawmakers have proposed two types of licences - one for large integrated resorts run by global operators featuring convention and entertainment facilities in addition to expansive gambling floors, and another for more compact gambling resorts in the countryside.

But they have also recommended that Japan limit the number of licences, prioritising locations promising the biggest economic impact and with the capacity to attract overseas tourists.

"I don't mean to negate Tokyo and Osaka," said Keiichi Kimura, who heads a consultancy and advises local governments and casino operators interested in Japan. "But it's just not right to be focusing the debate on those two places only."

CASINO IN A DUTCH TOWN

Las Vegas Sands Corp and MGM Resorts International have made it clear that Osaka and the Tokyo region are their primary targets.

"These are the locations you can drive that kind of business tourism into and are known as commercial and financial hubs," George Tanasijevich, president of Las Vegas Sands unit Marina Bay Sands, told Reuters after a presentation in Setpember in which he showed a mock-up for a casino resort on Tokyo Bay.

While lawmakers have not indicated how many locations would be given the right to develop a casino, some politicians involved in the discussions have suggested that one or two licences might be allocated to big cities and one or two to regional economies.

In Sasebo in Nagasaki Prefecture, business and political leaders want to secure one of those spots for a proposed casino alongside the windmills and canals of Huis Ten Bosch, a theme park modelled on a 17th century Dutch town.

The complex, which would include a hotel and entertainment facilities in addition to gaming tables and slot machines, would generate nearly $1 billion in annual revenues, the local group estimates, jolting new life into a region that once had a vibrant manufacturing sector but is increasingly reliant on tourism. The plan is to attract tourists from nearby South Korea, China and Taiwan in addition to locals.

"Tokyo shouldn't absorb everything," said Hideo Sawada, the chairman of travel agent H.I.S., which owns Huis Ten Bosch. "We need balanced growth between Tokyo and the local cities."

EUROPEAN CONNECTION

In contrast to the massive resorts of Las Vegas and Singapore, aspiring hosts outside the big cities are looking to the more compact facilities of Europe as a guide.

The German spa town of Baden-Baden, which also has casinos, is serving as a model for casino proponents in two traditional hot springs towns - Atami, in Shizuoka Prefecture, and Naruto, in southwestern Japan's Tokushima Prefecture.

Casinos Austria AG and Switzerland's Grand Casino Luzern, both of which say they are considering entering the Japanese market with a local partner but don't have billions of dollars to spend. To cut costs, they could use existing hotels and buildings.

"There are buildings that could be re-utilised and rejuvenated in Japan. That's a key feature of the European model," Grand Casino Luzern CEO Wolfgang Bliem, who recently spoke at casino conferences in Naruto and Tokyo, told Reuters. "The casino operation should blend into the community."

Big-ticket casinos set up in recent years have cost billions of dollars. The Marina Bay Sands, built on the mouth of the Singapore River, cost $6 billion while the Sands Cotai Central that opened in Macau last year cost $5 billion. Las Vegas magnate Steve Wynn has said his new Macau luxury resort, set to include a large lake with dancing water fountains and air conditioned gondolas, will cost $4 billion.

MOUNTAINS AND BEACHES

The northernmost island of Hokkaido is shaping up as one of the key casino battlegrounds with three locations - the port towns of Otaru and Tomakomai and Kushiro on the eastern coast - officially putting themselves forward as aspiring hosts.

Hokkaido, which draws tourists seeking a cooler location in the summer and skiers in the winter, has been cited by casino executives as one of the most attractive spots outside Tokyo and Osaka, along with the beaches of Okinawa in the south.

Caesars Entertainment Corp said both Hokkaido and Okinawa were on its radar screen. It has visited officials in Kushiro, a Hokkaido city of 200,000 that is proposing a casino built around a hot springs resort that would also promote the culture of the indigenous Ainu people.

Caesars is qualified to run a casino in Japan regardless of whether it is "an urban resort in Tokyo or Osaka, a beach resort in Okinawa, or a mountain resort in Hokkaido," said Steven Tight, head of the company's international development division.

Casinos Austria is one of the global casino operators that has shown an interest in Otaru, a harbour town whose proximity to Sapporo, the biggest city on Hokkaido, is considered a key asset in the casino stakes.

While Otaru attracts nearly 7 million tourists a year, too many pass through, spending a fraction of what they would if they stayed overnight. Otaru Mayor Yoshiharu Nakamatsu thinks a casino - perhaps one along the town's canal district or inside a retired cruise ship in the harbor - would change that.

Without a catalyst, he warns Otaru faces a bleak future. A third of its residents are above the age of 65, well above the national average and the highest among cities in Hokkaido.

"Our economy faces a negative spiral," Nakamatsu said in an interview last month. "Otaru is not the only place with these problems."
