Yaamava’ Resort & Casino in San Manuel and Light & Wonder, Inc. announced the world premiere of an all-new slot franchise, ‘Dragon Jewel‘.

With hold-and-response and “what you see is what you get” mechanics, the franchise comprises three titles. ‘red phoenix‘ and ‘Tiger Valley‘ are now live at Yaamava’ Resort & Casino while the third title, ‘A thousand warriors‘ is set to debut later this year.

Speaking of the premiere, Kenji Hall, Director of Gaming Operations at Yaamava’ Resort & Casino said:

“Our goal is to provide a top notch gaming experience by continually adding the newest slots to our fleet of over 7,000 slots. Our players will be thrilled to be the first to experience this exciting new slot franchise.

All three titles use gems as an indicator of a player’s progress towards their sustain and response goal, while also acting as triggers for smaller bonuses themselves. When six gem triggers are activated, the hold and response function begins. Players start with three free spins trying to collect additional gems, with each new gem resetting the free spins counter to three. If a player gets 15 gems, filling each slot, the big jackpot is theirs.

To celebrate the installation of the new slot, Yaamava’ Resort & Casino has teamed up with content creator Brian Christopher to present the world premiere of this slot title. Brian “BCSlots” Christopher – host of Brian Christopher Slots on YouTube and Facebook had 1.3 million followers on his social media.

Christopher said of the premiere:

“It’s always super exciting for our fans to see us show them brand new games live. Getting that immediate feedback from them on the games really makes it an immersive experience.

The multi-denomination slot machine is located on the second floor of Yaamava’ Resort & Casino, near the Serrano Vista cafe.

Last update on: September 19, 2022, 7:19 a.m.

The Venetian Las Vegas canceled the final two events of its PokerGo “Stairway to Millions” series this weekend – midway through the tournament – rather than risk missing out on posted guarantees. The series has pledged $2.15 million in prize money across 12 events. But that only lasted 10 days, leaving $1.1 million in collateral on the poker table.

Venetian poker room
The Venetian canceled the last two tournaments in a PokerGo series and $1.1 million in guarantees this weekend. One event was canceled 20 hours before the scheduled start, the other 48 hours before. (Picture: Twitter)

According pokernews.com, a $25.5K buy-in tournament with $500K guaranteed in the pot was scheduled for Sunday. Players who finished in the money were to receive a seat in Monday’s $51,000 buy-in event, which had a guaranteed $600,000. (The series used a unique format in which all players finishing in the money automatically advance to the next event.)

But both events were bent, Pokernews.com reported, even after a few players won free entries to Sunday’s tournament.

According to the poker site, the first eight events all exceeded their guarantees. Last Friday, however, a guaranteed $200,000 tournament with a buy-in of $10,400 drew only 18 players, so the guarantee ran out by $20,800. Then Saturday’s $300,000 guaranteed event ran out by more than $30,000. So when Paul Zappulla beat Stephen Song one-on-one for $124,000 that night, it was the series finale.

Complaints on Twitter go all-in

After Saturday’s event, PokerGO wrote on its website: “The Stairway To Millions originally had 12 events on the schedule, but due to decisions made by The Venetian Resort Poker Room, the last two events have been cancelled.” This launched a wave of bitterness on Twitter.

“Voiding a guarantee at a tournament in which you have already won a satellite is unacceptable,” tweeted Adam Hendrix, who finished second in event #9 for $37,000.

“That’s why you do it right,” Terrance Reid tweeted. “@LodgePokerClub is still getting great press months later while @VenetianPoker (expletive) on their tournament players yet again.”

Neither the first nor the last time

Although canceling a guaranteed event in the middle of a tournament series is considered bad form, it is not uncommon. In August 2022, Hustler Casino in Los Angeles canceled a $250,000 guaranteed tournament with four days of play remaining. Casino general manager Shaun Yaple explained on Twitter that a “bigger club stepped on us after our schedule was released” and that it would be “better to band together and plan for the future (than) to rush”.

In June 2022, Orleans Casino in Las Vegas canceled the three remaining multi-steal events of its Summer Open poker series, including one with a $250,000 guarantee. And in December 2021, poker champion Johnny Chan’s 88 Social Club in Houston canceled a tournament scheduled before the club went out of business due to financial mismanagement and insolvency issues. (Prime Social stepped in and hosted their Enchanted Xmas series on the same dates.)

Casino.org did not receive a response to its request for comment from The Venetian at the time of publication.

The stakes continue to rise in the political battle to control sports betting in California. The four committees created to support or oppose the two constitutional amendments have now raised more than $400 million between them.

And in 55 days, when California voters finally go to the polls, it’s very likely that Proposition 26 and Proposition 27 will be defeated. There is also a smaller, but not to be overlooked, chance that voters will approve of both measures. This could lead to the case going through the state court system and result in millions of additional dollars being spent by stakeholders.

Those will be discussions for another day. For now, we’ll look at the main players involved in the political battle and how much each has contributed to their side’s cause celebre.

According to data from Cal Access, a database maintained by the office of the California Secretary of State, the groups – Coalition for Safe, Responsible Gaming; Taxpayers against special interest monopolies; Californians for Solutions to Homelessness and Mental Health Support; and Californians for Tribal Sovereignty and Safe Gaming — have raised war chests totaling nearly $411.5 million through Wednesday. This is by far the highest for California ballot metrics.

Learn more about Prop 26 and Prop 27 here.

Coalition for Safe and Responsible Gambling

Total raised: $109.5 million

Position: Pro Prop 26, which would allow retail sports betting at tribal casinos and state racetracks. The measure would allow tribal casinos to offer dice-based table games and roulette, and it would also allow individuals and entities to take legal action against operators who allegedly violated state gambling laws. games. The coalition is also Anti Prop 27, which would legalize online sports betting with proceeds going to mental health services, homeless support programs and some tribal economic development initiatives.

Main contributors: Federated Band of Graton Rancheria ($30.2 million), Pechanga Band of Indians ($25.2 million), Yocha Dehe Wintun Nation ($20.2 million), Barona Band of Mission Indians ($10.3 million dollars) and Agua Caliente Band of Cahuilla Indians ($10.3 million).

Reasoning: Tribal gambling operators claim that limiting sports betting to physical sports betting helps ensure that underage people cannot bet. They also say Proposition 26 helps tribal nations stay self-sufficient and provides the ability to prosecute illegal gambling operators. The group argues that Proposition 27 would not provide adequate funding for homelessness programs since out-of-state operators would retain 90% of the profits.

Taxpayers vs. Special Interest Monopolies

Total raised: $41.9 million

Position: Anti-propeller 26

Main contributors: California Commerce Club ($10.1 million), Hawaiian Gardens Casino ($10.1 million), Knighted Ventures ($4.1 million), Park West Casinos ($2.1 million), and The Bicycle Hotel and Casino ($2.1 million).

Reasoning: Gambling hall casino operators and their supporters, which include city governments and municipal workers’ unions, say Proposition 26 would further empower wealthy tribal gambling operators by giving them a virtual monopoly on gambling. Gambling halls also fear being targeted by the provision to prosecute suspected illegal operators, which could result in cities losing millions in tax revenue if gambling halls are forced to close.

Californians for Solutions to Homelessness and Mental Health Support

Total raised: $169.2 million

Position: Pro Prop 27

Main contributors: FanDuel ($35 million), DraftKings ($34.2 million), BetMGM ($25 million), Barstool Sportsbook ($25 million), and Fanatics ($25 million).

Reasoning: Proponents say the measure would generate hundreds of millions of dollars in tax revenue each year to help fund programs for the homeless and support those with mental health needs. It also requires commercial operators to partner with tribal nations in order to obtain a license, and it allows tribal entities to participate on their own, if they wish. The proposal also provides a funding mechanism for small tribes not involved in sports betting.

Californians for Tribal Sovereignty and Game Safety

Total raised: $91.2 million

Position: Anti-propeller 27

Main contributors: San Manuel Band of Mission Indians ($78.1 million), Rincon Band of Luiseno Mission Indians ($10 million), and Pala Casino Resort Spa ($3 million).

Reasoning: Tribal gaming operators say online sports betting would threaten millions in revenue their casinos generate for state and local governments. They also say the online sports betting measure includes loopholes allowing these operators to reduce their tax liabilities and provide less funding for social service programs that online sports betting companies claim their measure will support.

Table Mountain Casino and Resort, long the only dry tribal casino in central California, may soon serve cocktails and other liquor.

The Fresno Business Journal reports On Monday, the casino began the process of transferring a liquor license from the now closed River Park-based Japanese restaurant Yoshino in late July, the day after its new casino opened.

The newspaper, citing records from the Fresno County Recorder’s Office, said the license was sold from the closed teppanyaki restaurant to the casino for $30,000.

The license transfer process, ABC representatives told the pub, varies depending on the situation.

“Usually it takes a few months for the license to be issued. But this one could be a bit more complex,” Jason Montgomery told the pub.

The liquor license complements and expands the casino which now houses four restaurants – Eagles Landing Stakehouse, Sukai Teppanyaki Grill and Blue Oak Grille – as well as a food court.

The liquor licensing agency said it was unclear where the casino will serve alcohol.

Black pensioner won money at casino and is suing bank after saying she was turned away when she tried to deposit a check https://jelato-donna.com/black-pensioner-won-money-at-casino-and-is-suing-bank-after-saying-she-was-turned-away-when-she-tried-to-deposit-a-check/ Sat, 10 Sep 2022 21:39:00 +0000 https://jelato-donna.com/black-pensioner-won-money-at-casino-and-is-suing-bank-after-saying-she-was-turned-away-when-she-tried-to-deposit-a-check/ CNN — A Michigan retiree is suing a Detroit bank after saying employees refused to cash a check she received from a casino after winning a jackpot.

CNN

A Michigan retiree is suing a Detroit bank after saying employees refused to cash a check she received from a casino after winning a jackpot.

Lizzie Pugh told CNN she won more than $12,000 on a slot machine at the Soaring Eagle Casino & Resort in Mt. Pleasant, Michigan, during a church outing earlier this year.

On April 11, 2022, Pugh went to Fifth Third Bank in Livonia, Michigan to open a savings account and deposit her winnings into a newly created account, according to court documents. Pugh’s complaint alleges that three Fifth Third Bank White Bank employees told him the check was “fraudulent.”

The 71-year-old Detroit Public School retiree says she was then forced to confront bank clerks who initially refused to return her check.

According to the complaint, Pugh asked bank employees to call 911 because she was not leaving without her check. Pugh then spoke to a third bank clerk who also said the check was fraudulent and because of this the bank would not allow Pugh to open an account and deposit the check. Eventually, bank employees returned Pugh’s check.

Fifth Third Bank, NA and Fifth Third Financial Corporation filed a response this week denying the allegations, including that their employee decided the check was “fraudulent.” They also dispute that events occurred that would warrant damages or other relief, according to the court filing.

“We are committed to fair and responsible banking and prohibit any form of discrimination. Based on our review of the claims, we believe the facts are different from what is alleged. Our employees are trained to assist each customer with their banking needs, and our employees follow procedures to facilitate the opening of any new account,” a Fifth Third Bank spokesperson said in a statement to CNN.

In a statement to CNN, Pugh’s attorney, Deborah Gordon, said, “What happened to Ms. Pugh is yet another example of the obstacles and indignities that black Americans face as they attempt to get through the day. . It’s not just young black people who are profiled. Fortunately, Michigan has a strict law prohibiting discrimination in “public accommodations,” including banks. »

Pugh says she was able to cash it in at another bank.

“I had that check, and I didn’t want it on me now,” Pugh told CNN.

“I was so upset; I just took a picture of the bank on my way out because I didn’t know the address,” she added.

Pugh’s niece, Yolanda McGee, told CNN, “She’s scared to go to any bank or any type of business. She’s had events in her life living in Alabama as a that young girl where she was discriminated against, and you know it’s heavy on her heart. McGee says she first had to convince her aunt to take legal action because her aunt was terrified at the idea of ​​doing anything.

In its statement, Fifth Third Bank says it stands by its employees: “Based on our review of the complaints, we believe that the actions of our employees have been misinterpreted. That said, we regret that Ms. Pugh felt mistreated following her interactions at our branch, as our employees’ actions were consistent with our process and the dual purpose of serving our customers while preventing potential fraud that can victimize both the bank and our customers.”

VICI Properties increases its dividend by more than 8% https://jelato-donna.com/vici-properties-increases-its-dividend-by-more-than-8/ Thu, 08 Sep 2022 22:10:01 +0000 https://jelato-donna.com/vici-properties-increases-its-dividend-by-more-than-8/ Published on: September 8, 2022, 05:08h.

VICI Properties (NYSE: VICI), the largest casino owner in the United States, said today it is raising its quarterly price to 39 cents per share, an increase of 8.3% from current levels .

The move raises the Caesar Palace owner’s annual payout to $1.56 per share from $1.44. The gambling real estate investment trust (REIT) is yielding 4.31%, more than triple the dividend yield of the S&P 500 and well above the yield of 10-year Treasury bills.

The dividend will be payable on October 6, 2022 to shareholders of record at the close of business on September 22, 2022,” according to a statement issued by the New York-based company.

VICI made the announcement after US markets closed today. The stock fell 0.24% on Thursday, but is up 11% year-to-date, easily outpacing the broader market as well as the widely followed FTSE Nareit Equity REITS index. The gauge is down 16.68% this year.

VICI The Legacy of Dividend Growth

Investors often flock to REITs for above-average dividends and yields for the asset class – characteristics that VICI certainly compels.

The real estate company was created from the old version of Caesars Entertainment in October 2017, and with today’s dividend news, its streak of increasing payouts is now five years old. A member of the S&P 500, VICI is the largest experiential landlord in the United States and one of the leading owners of prestigious real estate assets on the Las Vegas Strip.

Through a series of recent transactions, the company not only owns Caesars Palace, but it also owns The Venetian and nearly every Strip location operated by MGM Resorts International (NYSE: MGM), except Bellagio and Cosmopolitan. .

Through the recently completed purchase of MGM Growth Properties, which was completed in late April, VICI added nearly 41,000 hotel rooms and 1.2 million square feet of gaming space.

VICI now owns the real estate assets of Excalibur, Luxor, Mandalay Bay, MGM Grand, Mirage, New York New York and Park MGM, as well as various regional casinos operated by MGM Resorts.

Sustainability of VICI dividends

Experienced investors know that even if a company increases its payout is generally a good thing, it is more important that the company has the resources to meet current payment obligations and continue to increase the dividend over time.

VICI ticks those boxes. Through the aforementioned acquisitions and others, the REIT has added several new streams of rental income. It is important to note that the company’s contracts with tenants are long-term – often a decade or more – and include indexations for inflation. The MGP deal alone generates over $1 billion in new rental income for VICI.

Additionally, VICI remains acquisitive, retaining a knack for deals large and small. Last month, the company announced that it was buying the Rocky Gap Casino Resort real estate assets in Flinstone, Maryland from Golden Entertainment (NASDAQ: GDEN) for $204 million.
