Here's a question, we get why NJ can't take bets from the other 50 states, but why not take bets from the rest of the world?

"In addition to people from more than half the states in America illegally trying to log on to New Jersey Internet gambling websites, technology has detected users in Portugal, Ghana, India and Canada trying to do likewise."

This is a problem, a NJ politician thinks the same way I do.

Considering the fate of many NJ politicians, should I be concerned?


TRENTON Ė State Sen. Raymond Lesniak introduced a legislative plan on Thursday that would put Atlantic City at the center of an international gaming industry that is expected to experience rapid growth in the years ahead. The plan would help attract international gaming companies to Atlantic City, producing jobs, state revenue and economic expansion, Lesniak (D-Union) said.


Lesniakís bill, S-3084, would authorize the Division of Gaming Enforcement to provide licenses to companies that offer Internet gaming to other countries where it is legal, allowing overseas customers, including casinos, to place wagers on casino games via the Internet. The service would be restricted to foreign countries and regulatory agreements would have to be implemented between New Jersey and the foreign jurisdiction

Considering this, & the fate of CET - in AC, since being taken over by hedge funds, should NJ continue to allow these entities to operate its casinos?

"ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. -- The bidding for The Atlantic Club Casino Hotel in a bankruptcy auction next week will begin at $25 million.

That's $10 million more than the only deal the casino has been able to put together to sell itself when a sale to the PokerStars website fell through earlier this year. But, that deal would have seen PokerStars assume significant liabilities the casino has amassed, something that might not happen in the sale scheduled for Dec. 17

...The Atlantic Club's owners, Los Angeles hedge fund Colony Capital, paid $513 million for it in 2005."

Here's something I've been surprised by...


The going rate for a Room in Ballys or Showboat for New Year's Eve 2013...

$250!!


For the past 10 years, the "Main Strip" casinos have been sold out months in advance for NYE.

However, this year it seems the demand has gone down so much, I can get a room for less than $300 after taxes & fees.

I am a Gold card member, who has been to AC about a dozen times this year. Maybe losing $200 total to CET properties.


I have a place in Seaside Heights, so I've never needed to book a room on NYE. But I may consider it this year and will keep an eye on the online rates to see if it drops even further.

But this is still pretty shocking that the rates are not only not Sold Out, but are quite reasonable for arguably the busiest night of the year in AC.

Free room and party offers have been tricking down to lessor players club members as rooms go unfilled. I believe they see the bloodbath coming and are trying anything to fill the casinos.

My wife got her offers from Resorts in the mail today. Free room any night from Jan. 1st to Feb. 28th. Food and slot play also included. This is all based on very modest penny slot play. Offers from other casinos should be arriving soon. You gotta love it. As I've said before, the more you stiff 'em the more offers you get.

I'd bet you could call Revel at noon on Dec 31st and get a free room. I called the day before the Alicia Keyes concert and got one for the night of the show, a Saturday.

When will the AC "Casino Control Commission", aka "Gaming Enforcement" agency, be formally renamed as "NJ FTroop"?

http://nj.gov/casinos/news/2010/pdf/revel_license_2012.pdf

"ITíS RESTAURANTS, THEATERS AND SPA WILL BE STRONG LURES TO ATTRACT NEW VISITORS WHO ARE INTERESTED IN ENJOYING MUCH MORE THAN JUST A CASINO.UNLIKE OTHER EXISTING CASINO HOTELS, REVEL EMBRACES ITS BEACHFRONT LOCATION AND INCORPORATES IT AS AN INTEGRAL PART OF THE FACILITY. WITH THE ATTENTION TO DETAIL AND ITS UNDERSTATED ELEGANCE, IT IS EASY TO SEE WHY MANY BELIEVE REVEL IS SETTING A NEW STANDARD AGAINST WHICH FUTURE PROPERTIES WILL BE MEASURED.
WE HAVE HEARD MR. DESANCTIS DESCRIBE MANY OF THE AMENITIES THROUGHOUT THE PROPERTY AS WELL AS HIS MARKETING PLAN AND HIS VISION FOR REVEL AND ATLANTIC CITY. WE ARE PLACING A GREAT DEAL OF CONFIDENCE IN YOU MR. DESANCTIS AND YOUR TEAM AT REVEL. YOUR ABILITY TO MARKET THIS PROPERTY AND DRAW NEW PEOPLE TO COME AND EXPERIENCE WHAT ATLANTIC CITY HAS TO OFFER WILL PLAY AN ENORMOUS ROLE IN THE FUTURE SUCCESS OF THE GAMING INDUSTRY HERE."

AC tourists should rely on the advice of "destination experts" to inform them when & where they will be safe?
