Recently there was a bankruptcy auction held for Atlantic City’s Revel Casino. Previously owned by Donald Trump it stopped earning profit less than two years ago. The casino was sold for $110 Million, which is a discount from the $2.4 Billion that this casino cost to build. This is unfortunately a part of the land based gambling industry in Atlantic City. There has been other casinos that have had to shut down their doors and file for bankruptcy due to lack of people going to their casinos.
This casino was purchased by Brookfield Asset Management. They owned two land based casinos before the purchasing of Revel Casino. The first casino they purchased was the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas. The second one was Atlantic Paradise Island Casino is Nassau, Bahamas. Revel Casino will now stand as the third land based casino that Brookfield Asset Management operates.
The $110 Million that Brookfield Asset Management spent on purchasing Revel Casino is considered to be an extreme bargain as they were well aware of the price it cost to build this casino. Revel Casino only operated for less than a year before it had to shut down their doors. This casino isn’t even three years old and is still in perfect condition. $110 Million for this casino is about as cheap as it could of come.
There is no word as to when Brookfield Asset Management plans on re-opening Revel Casino. You can expect the name of the casino to be changed, new attractions to come to the casino and new games. It could very well become the best land based casino in Atlantic City.

This won’t be hard to find as Playtech is one of the most popular developers known to the online gambling industry. Once you find a casino you will have to register, deposit money and find Sweet Party.
There are a few key developers that operate within the online gambling industry. These developers month after month continue to prove that they have what it takes to provide an excellent gambling experience. Out of all of the key developers there is one developer that does it best and that developer is Net Entertainment. Their so popular that casinos all around the world pay the fees to offer the Net Entertainment platform on their casino. EypoBet is the latest casino to license out the Net Entertainment platform.
EypoBet will now provide punters with the Net Entertainment live dealer casino platform, choosing to end their licensing agreement with Microgaming. This came as a shock to many as both of these developers are well known around the globe but fortunately for Net Entertainment they have the better live dealer gambling platform.
As a result of this new platform coming to EypoBet a series of new table games will be coming to the casino. Those new games include Net Entertainment developed Blackjack games, Automatic Roulette Games, Regular Roulette Games and plenty more. These games can be played through EypoBet’s web based casino or downloadable casino. Depending on what kind of game you are playing you will be able to be wagers that range from €1 – €75,000.

Lucky Club Manager, Alex Hunter, is excited about this newest promotion for more reasons than one. Not only will it give players the chance to travel the U.S., but it will also aid in broadening their gaming palettes.

Playtech isn’t your normal online software developer of casino games and have a large following that has been earned through more than twenty years of online experience. Today, a fortunate player playing Playtech’s “Everybody’s Jackpot” was able to win $244,944. Though this isn’t the largest progressive to be won through this slot it is still a hefty amount of money to be won, it could allow for the winning punter to pay off their mortgage or purchase a brand new car.
The specifics on this jackpot win have yet to be publicised by Playtech or the specified casino where this jackpot was won. We do know that the jackpot was won win last Thursday around twelve o’clock in the afternoon. This jackpot win also is the second jackpot win in the last week and a half, this in return shows that Everybody’s Jackpot is still the popular slot everyone thinks it to be.
Everybody’s Jackpot works in an odd way. When you win the large progressive jackpot you only get to keep seventy percent of your win while the other thirty percent is dished out in a second progressive jackpot. This in return gives the other punters spinning the reels a chance to win the jackpot all over again. This proves to be a perfect system as it has allowed for triple the amount of punters to win progressive jackpots. All you must do is register an account with a casino that offers the Playtech platform and you could be the next Everybody’s Jackpot winner.

BetFred is a gambling operator well known for their online and retail gambling services.

The statement read as follows, “We have been able to stand as one of the better gambling firms within the United Kingdom for a long period of time. Our competitors are always trying their best to release a gambling product that can outweigh anything we have to offer. Unfortunately are competitors continue to fail as we work around the clock creating new gambling experiences for our punters, upgrading our gambling platform and entering new gambling markets. This in return allows for us to grow as an operator.”
There are many of you who don’t realize that Betfred is truly one of the longest operators in the United Kingdom Online Gambling Market. During the course of their operations they’ve created innovative experiences and casino games that are beloved by punters all around the world. You can either experience card games, slots, table games, lottery games or their Sportsbetting platform.
Every once and awhile a new online casino will open for the online gambling community. Each casino that opens their doors to online punters tries to create their own unique twist to bring punters into their casino. Unfortunately the majority of these operators fail at creating a unique experience and thus by those operators are eventually forced to close their doors. Buck & Butler, a new Nordic based online casino is currently live and brings a truly unique experience to the table.
This unique experience is due to Buck & Butler offering the EveryMatrix platform. EveryMatrix developers multiple casino games which range from slot machines to table games. Their casino games offer astonishing visuals that draw you into every game they have ever developed. Buck & Butler also offer the Net Entertainment platform for their mobile casino and poker games, this in return ensures players that regardless of which kind of casino game they choose to play they’ll be met with an impressive developer who has tons of experience within the online gambling market.
Ebbe Groes is the CEO for EveryMatrix and today she made a statement regarding this casino going live saying, “Often we find ourselves being drawn into our own casino games. A large amount of our development team gambles online and often they’ll choose to play the games they’ve developed over any other casino game available in the market. The reason for this is because our gambling platform is truly innovative, we know that all new punters to Buck & Butler will be impressed by the casino games we’ve developed for them.”
Rockstar Games, the developers behind the Grand Theft Auto Franchise and Red Dead Redemption Standalone announced today that they will be releasing a new game come the first quarter in 2015. This came to a shock to the video game industry as Rockstar Games normally doesn’t release a game every two years, it usually takes them four to five years to develop one of their open world adventure games. During 2014 Rockstar Games created Grand Theft Auto 5, it quickly became the fastest selling GTA in existence.
The question that was asked by nearly every games is will Grand Theft Auto 5 be released on the Xbox One and Playstation 4? Rockstar Games said that they wouldn’t be releasing the title on the next generation consoles but recent rumors indicate that Rockstar Games won’t only release a next generation version of Grand Theft Auto 5 but it will also include added areas for players to explore. The game is said to be twice as large as it was when it was first released, essentially giving players an entire new Grand Theft Auto game to experience.
Rockstar Games made the announcement through their Twitter Account saying, “Today we would like to announce that we we’ll be releasing a new game for the Xbox One and Playstation 4. We will be revealing some information about the game at the E3 Gaming Conference, until then we know the rumors will float around as to what game it might be. All we can say is it is something familiar.”
Microsoft unveiled today that they will be releasing a new Xbox One that will cost only $400 in store, matching up to the $450 price tag that the Playstation 4 has in Canada and other countries throughout the world. This new Xbox One won’t have the Kinect, thus by making the device cheaper for Microsoft to sell to consumers.
This is sure to bring in a mass amount of revenue for Microsoft as the Xbox One will not match the Playstation 4 in nearly every country and will be cheaper than the Playstation 4 in others. Canadian Gamers have to game $450 for a Playstation 4 while American Gamers have to pay $400 for the same device, this is a result of a border patrol issue that occurred in British Columbia when the PS4 was first released. Essentially the market is now tied and it all depends on what console you prefer, what games they have to offer and how the consoles performs with its U.I.
Microsoft made this announcement as a surprise, making the announcement through their website and an email to anyone who is registered with the Xbox Email List. Phil Spencer, the Head of Xbox said the following during the announcement: “We have heard the cries from our fans, you all want an Xbox One that doesn’t have the Kinect Attachment alongside it. This has resulted in us being able to sell the console for a cheaper price, $400 to be exact. We cannot wait to see how this benefits Xbox and Gamers everywhere.”
