Latest Casino and Gambling News, Gaming Law & Legislation, Tribal Gaming, Economy/Finance, Licenses, FloridaThe Seminole Tribe of Florida has reportedly told legislators in Tallahassee that it is to cease making its monthly revenue sharing payments until the state officially settles a long-running dispute concerning the legal provision of ‘banked’ card games such as blackjack.According to a report from the Miami Herald newspaper, the federally-recognized tribe divulged its move via a Tuesday letter that was hand-delivered to Florida Governor, Ron DeSantis, after a temporary one-year extension to its current Class III gaming compact expired at the end of March.The Seminole Tribe of Florida is responsible for six casinos across southern Florida including the Las Vegas-style Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino Hollywood and the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino Tampa and reportedly previously held the exclusive rights to offer ‘banked’ card games, which involve titles where players wager against the house.However, this exclusivity has now expired and the tribe is purportedly seeking an extension as part of a much larger renegotiation of its licensing deal with the state.The Miami Herald reported that the tribe had negotiated the year-long extension to its gaming compact with previous Florida Governor, Rick Scott, in hopes that this would give the state enough time to come up with an acceptable solution.

The World Poker Tour has partnered with Chinese Texas Hold’em Poker Association to hold WPT Taiwan in Taipei City, and WPT-themed Spin & Win games arrive on Zynga.I doubt you’re going to see too many Taiwanese kids trekking down to HMV, Timberland boots skipping in the air as they listen to J-Lo, but according to a recent survey from the Child Welfare League Foundation (CWLF), 75.8% of Taiwanese children are satisfied with their lives on an island containing close to 24 million souls.How that would change should China continue their desire to swallow them into the belly of the People’s Republic of China, especially given hostile tension between the two presidents after Chinese fighter jets crossed into Taiwanese airspace for the first time since 2011.Reading through the lines, it seems that relations between the two presidents are as wobbly as man boobs so I adopt a more reasonable solution – Presidents Xi Jinping and Tsai Ing-wen should play heads-up for rolls.WPT Taiwan runs July 12-22, 2019 from Taipei City, with the TWD 30,000 (USD 1,000) Main Event taking place July 17-21.CTP has eight clubs strewn across the region like broccoli stalks on a kid’s dinner plate, and the one in Taipei is the largest with 25 tables painted across the canvas.

It looks like the long legal battle between Chinese businessman Richard Suen and Las Vegas Sands (LVS) has finally come to an end.The two parties have reached an agreement for an undisclosed sum of money, reports GGRAsia.Suen started a 15-year legal battle with LVS in 2004, arguing that he and his firm, Round Square Co Ltd, helped the operator win its Macau casino rights and were not properly compensated.When this recent round of court hearings started, Suen’s lawyers argued he should get as much as $347 million for his role all those years ago.LVS’s lawyers countered that he deserved no more than $3.76 million.Now that the two groups have reached a compromise, Suen is satisfied.

Players’ union head Tony Clark took the extraordinary step of saying baseball fans should question whether it makes sense to purchase tickets for some teams, responding to Commissioner Rob Manfred’s assertion that free-agent players have failed to adjust their economic demands in a market upended by analytics.Top free agents Bryce Harper, Manny Machado, Craig Kimbrel and Dallas Keuchel remain unsigned with spring training underway, creating tension during negotiations on management’s proposals for a pitch clock and new limitations on relief pitchers.The union responded with a wider list of plans that include economic initiatives such as expanding the designated hitter to the National League and altering the amateur draft to make rebuilding less appealing.Clark led negotiations in 2016 for a five-year labor deal.Players have increasingly been outspoken about their unhappiness during a second straight slow free-agent market, one that has seen many veterans take significant pay cuts and others remain without deals.“Players’ eyes don’t deceive them, nor do fans’,” Clark said in a statement Monday.
