SEC filing sheds light on Wynn Resorts’ developments

Steve Wynn’s new company is taking shape, with former Gov. Bob Miller and Wynn’s wife, Elaine, agreeing to join the Wynn Resorts board of directors, the company revealed in a Tuesday Securities and Exchange Commission filing.


Wynn’s plans to develop Le Reve, a $1.83 billion megaresort on the Desert Inn site, and casino resorts in Macau became a bit clearer Tuesday as Wynn Resorts further detailed its plans to sell stock to the public.


Wynn Resorts advised investors in its filing that it expects to raise additional financing in the form of a $350 million second mortgage and about $363.5 million from its planned public stock offering, which Wall Street sources expect to take place in early- to mid-September.


Construction of Le Reve is slated to begin next month with the megaresort’s opening scheduled for March 2005. Wynn Resorts expects the planned megaresort to employ about 8,000 workers.


The planned resort will be the first Strip megaresort to open since the bankrupt Aladdin opened in August 2000.


Le Reve will be “the most luxurious hotel resort environment on the Las Vegas Strip,” the filing noted. “At the time of Le Reve’s planned opening in March 2005, we believe that it will have been almost five years since a major new hotel casino resort opened on the Las Vegas Strip. As a result, we expect that there will be a high level of anticipation for Le Reve. We intend to capitalize on this high level of anticipation, as well as the tendency of customers in the Las Vegas market to gravitate toward new attractions and locations.”


The filing reveals Wynn’s plans to recapture some of the high-end UFABet gamblers Strip heavyweight MGM Mirage garnered when it acquired Wynn’s former company, Mirage Resorts, in May 2000.…

Ligaz11 Review of How to Detect Casino Cheating at Blackjack

Over the years, Bill Zender, former Nevada Gaming Control Agent and Director of Casino Operations at the Aladdin, has been widely acknowledged as one of the most thoughtful and progressive casino insiders in the gaming business today. He has quite literally written the books on Pai Gow ligaz11 Poker and Blackjack card counting from the casino’s point of view. His training methods and careful mathematical analysis of casino games gave the Aladdin one of the highest hold percentages of any Nevada casino. In his latest book, Zender has tackled a taboo topic, that of the cheating of players by casinos in the game of Blackjack. It is unusual enough that someone has written a book on this controversial topic, but for it to be written by a casino insider is truly astounding, but the public is the beneficiary of Zender’s considerable expertise on the subject.


Having been a casino operator, responsible for the day to day management of everything that happens on the casino floor, a gaming control agent, responsible for investigating allegations of casino cheating, and a Blackjack card counter, having made his living for a while on the players’ side of the table, Zender is uniquely qualified to tackle this topic. In his book, Zender draws on real situations he encountered during his tenure as a casino employee, actual cases he worked on as a gaming control agent, and has access to the first hand accounts of events as happened to some of the most respected names in Blackjack. All of this data, along with a light, but well considered narrative, make this book useful as well as entertaining.


The first couple of chapters focus on the history of cheating at Blackjack and the rumors that surround the industry. Zender goes to great lengths to emphasize …

Goodlatte Reintroduces Judi Slot Online Prohibition Bill

Rep. Bob Goodlatte of Virginia reintroduced his anti-gambling legislation to the House of Representatives late last week, almost a year after it failed to win the necessary two-thirds majority vote.

The new bill would update the 1961 Wire Act that bans telephone wagering to include Internet betting. Goodlatte said that the bill needed to be updated because courts have been uncertain whether the Act, which was originally written to stop sports betting, pertained to casino games or to bets made over the Net.

Goodlatte also cited concerns over money laundering at Internet casinos and the need to regulate online wagering when he tabled the legislation.

This bill was introduced only days after a bill banning the use of credit cards in online gambling was approved by the House Financial Services Committee. Rep. Michael Oxley, chair of the committee, said that he expects the two pieces of legislation will be combined into one bill in the near future.

Goodlatte told the Las Vegas Review Journal that his bill would not affect Internet wagering in Nevada, should casinos there get the green light to go online. “If they figure out how to set up such a system and not have it bleed over into the rest of the United States, it could eventually move in that direction,” he said.

The revised bill would include a number of tougher provisions for people breaking Judi Slot Online gambling laws. Individuals convicted of running gambling sites could face up to five years in prison; sports betting sites would be made illegal, as well. Gamblers would not be liable to prosecution.

Other gambling opponents, including Oxley and John LaFalce of New York, gave Goodlatte their support last week. But in an interesting twist, James Leach of Iowa, who sponsored the credit card ban on online gambling, …

Spanish 21 is a variation of blackjack that is one of the best bets in a casino. In locations where the dealer stands on a soft 17 or redoubling is allowed, Spanish 21 is probably a better bet than blackjack, depending on the specific blackjack rules. If you are looking for a change of pace from traditional blackjack but insist on a game with a low house edge you may find new excitement in Spanish 21.


The Rules

Spanish 21 uses six or eight Spanish decks, each deck consisting of 48 cards — the regular 52 cards less the four …

The last to Togel Online know



The night was foggy and the environs of the Royal Bafokeng Stadium poorly lit.

We had just finished a nightmare journey to reach the England v USA clash at last summer’s World Cup on-time, though little did we know the absurdly delayed drive to Rustenburg from Johannesburg would be as nothing compared to the never-ending story that was the trip back.


Two hours after the final whistle we were still waiting to leave the car park, or rather the strip of wasteland commandeered to house the many vehicles used by fans visiting the 42,000 venue; Rustenburg had no railway station.


What was FIFA thinking handing the World Cup to a place like this, I thought. A veritable nightmare for visiting fans, by some margin the most inconvenient of the six World Cup finals I had attended. Then I got my answer – a military Togel Online helicopter, searchlights beaming through the gloom, hovered in to land. The doors opened and a posse of security ushered US Vice-President Joe Biden into the stadium.


Biden doubtless had a five-star experience of the World Cup like all FIFA dignitaries did, and the TV feed did its job in pumping the games into people’s homes across the globe.


But what about the real fans, those of us who had shelled out to be there in the South African winter in person. Did anyone care about our experience of the World Cup?

Talking of winter, and in South Africa the thermometer dipped below zero on many nights, a winter World Cup in the Middle East in 2022 looks ever likelier now the International Players’ Union has come out in favour of it.

Japan joins Copa after u-turn


Japan will enter the Copa America as a guest in July after all.

“By playing in the tournament,” said Tashima, “we can show the rest of the world how the country of Japan is fighting. If we don’t take part in the tournament, it could present a negative impression.”

League Judi Online24Jam Deposit Pulsa Cup final a local affair



All the colour of the Japanese Yamazaki Nabisco League Cup final will descend upon the National Stadium in Tokyo on November 3, with this year’s showpiece event set to be an all-local affair.


FC Tokyo have reached their first League Cup final since 2004, with Hiroshi Jofuku’s team winning through on the back of some impressive displays.


The capital club topped their group from 2008 finalists Shimizu S-Pulse, before confidently dispatching Nagoya Grampus in the quarter-finals.


Their final four tie saw them pitted against cup Judi Online24Jam Deposit Pulsa Cup specialists Shimizu, where a 3-2 aggregate win over the two legs propelled them into a final played in their home city.


If FC Tokyo figured they would command the lion’s share of support at a jam-packed Kokuritsu Kyogijo, their hopes were dashed when neighbours Kawasaki Frontale also won through to the final.


The Kanagawa outfit took a different route to the Culture Day showdown, parachuting into the League Cup at the quarter-final stage due to their participation in the 2009 AFC Champions League.


Takashi Sekizuka’s side signalled their intent with an aggregate 3-1 quarter-final win over Kashima Antlers, before beating local rivals Yokohama F. Marinos by the same scoreline in the semi-finals.


With the city of Kawasaki located just twenty kilometres from downtown Tokyo, thousands of Frontale fans will make the short trip to the capital, as they look to put the memories of their 2007 final defeat to Gamba Osaka behind them.


Sekizuka’s free-scoring outfit could be forgiven for having their minds on other matters, with Kawasaki currently leading the J. League table by a point from defending champions Kashima Antlers.


However, Kawasaki arguably have the upper hand going into this League Cup final clash, with FC Tokyo’s …

South Korea To Leave Comfort Judi Online Qq Zone



It is almost two years since the South Korean national team last ventured outside the borders of Asia. This weekend sees the Taeguk Warriors in Europe for the first of two 2010 World Cup warm-up matches against tough opposition.


Saturday sees the team in Denmark and then four days later; Huh Jung-moo takes his players west to London to face Serbia.


London was the last non-Asian city to see South Korea in action. In February 2007, a Lee Chun-soo free-kick gave his team a 1-0 win over then-European champions Greece. Before the return to the English capital and Fulham FC’s stadium Craven Judi Online Qq Cottage, there is the match in the Danish city of Esbjerg.


The Scandinavians surprised a few observers by winning their 2010 qualification group ahead of Portugal and bitter rivals Sweden. Well-organized and hard to beat, the Danes will give the visitors a thorough examination. The two teams last met ahead of the 2006 World Cup in Hong Kong when the Europeans deservedly won 3-1.


This is a different Korean team now though. The 2002 World Cup semifinalists have gone 26 games unbeaten. The roster for these two matches contained few surprises though eyebrows (and perhaps Scottish blood pressure) were raised at the inclusion of Park Ji-sung.


Of course, all agree that the captain should usually be the first name on the teamsheet but the sticking point is that Park is supposedly injured. The 28 year-old has not pulled on the famous red shirt since returning from national team duty against Senegal on October 10.


A knee problem has prevented appearances and just three days after club boss Alex Ferguson was telling reporters that Park needed two more weeks to recover, coach Huh was summoning the player. The …

Can’t buy me love, by the Dominoqq Beat All’s



In life, I have two goals; (That’s one more than Djibril Cisse.) to see world peace in my lifetime, and to make a consistent profit on football betting. Unfortunately, only one of my goals is achievable.


World peace moved a step closer this week as Arsene Dominoqq Wenger offered Alex Ferguson an olive branch. (He ran out of soup and pizza.) The Arsenal manager slammed the supporters who booed Sir Alex off the pitch last weekend, in a show of support for his old nemesis.


The Scot’s diminishing popularity is due to the team’s formation, 451 and 433 are not just the most common answers in the ‘Guess the age of Wayne Rooney’s next female companion’ competition, they’re also the source of the United supporters frustration.


A midweek win in Europe silenced the critics, and a return to form against Fulham will put the issue to sleep. The United manager will not be booed this weekend, although it’s a fair possibility that he’ll be hissed at some stage. Back Man U at 4/7 to return to winning ways.


The Liverpool v Chelsea clash looks good on paper, but on closer inspection, a dull game is the probable outcome. Liverpool have played four matches against decent opposition; away to Spurs and Boro, and home clashes with Man U and Chelsea, all four finished goalless. Tip of the week? You can’t spell Liverpool without two O’s. Get on the goalless draw at 8/1.


Alain Perrin’s tenure at Fratton Park appears to be drawing to a close. It’s bad enough when you haven’t won a home match all season, but sarcastically clapping a referee because you saw Wayne Rooney do it on the telly is unforgivable.


Pompey did well to draw both matches against Newcastle …
