Sports betting battle pitting casino owner against tribes could go all the way to Supreme Court
TUKWILA, Wash. – A Washington card room owner argued that tribal casinos have unfairly monopolized sports betting and is suing state and federal officials for the right to get in on the game. But local tribes — including his own — say his suit threatens their economies and sovereignty.
“There’s zero circumstances in which I’d settle,” Maverick Gaming CEO Eric Persson told Fox News. If his suit makes it to the U.S. Supreme Court like he expects, a ruling in his favor could affect sports betting in states far beyond Washington, according to a PlayUSA analysis.
“I have the resources to go all the way, and so do they. So there’s going to be a battle,” Persson continued. “We’re going have a lot of fun, and I’m going to win. That’s what makes it fun.”

Man arrested after allegedly stabbing 4 people at WA casino
A man at a poker table went on a sudden, unprovoked attack at a casino in Washington state Monday night, stabbing or slashing four people before being arrested after a high-speed car chase, authorities said.
All four victims were expected to survive, according to the Clark County Sheriff’s Office in southwestern Washington.
The attack happened just before midnight at the New Phoenix and Last Frontier casinos, table game and poker establishments that share a building in the town of La Center. Several witnesses called 911 to report the stabbings and said the suspect was armed with what appeared to be a hunting knife.

Patrons and employees confronted the attacker but he was able to make it to a car and fled, the sheriff’s office said.
Deputies found the vehicle and pursued it, the sheriff’s office said, with the chase reaching speeds of more than 100 mph. Police used an “immobilization technique” to stop the vehicle and arrested the driver.
Video from the casino showed a man sitting at a poker table before reaching down, grabbing something and then standing and stabbing the man next to him five times in the head and chest “without provocation or warning,” the sheriff’s office said.

Hard Rock and the Ocean Casino Resort Winning Popularity Share of Atlantic City Market
ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) – Three years ago, when two shuttered Atlantic City casinos came back to life, there was more than a little skepticism over whether it was a good idea to add two casinos to a market that had just lost five of them.
But now there is little doubt that those two casinos – Hard Rock and the Ocean Casino Resort – have succeeded in grabbing their share of a cutthroat market and giving visitors new reasons to come to Atlantic City.
Both casinos had their first full day of operations on the same day: June 28, 2018.
In terms of the amount of money won from in-person gamblers, Hard Rock ranked second out of the nine casinos last year with $224.8 million. Ocean was third at $183.5 million.
Their performance has shaken up the Atlantic City market, forming a new Big 3: Market-leader Borgata and the two newcomers. (When internet and sports betting money is included, Borgata, Golden Nugget and Hard Rock ranked 1-2-3 last year.)

Vietnam’s large-scale casino resorts are not likely to be sustainable unless locals are allowed to gamble
Vietnam’s large-scale casino resorts are not likely to be sustainable unless locals are allowed to gamble in them, several industry commentators have told GGRAsia.
The number of such international-standard projects either launched, under construction or announced in the country – each typically with a multibillion U.S. dollar price tag attached to it – has been growing in recent years.
But recent developments, including not only the Covid-19 pandemic, but also China’s legal code amendments outlawing so-called “cross-border” gambling activities, is creating challenges to any casino business model in Asia Pacific that focuses on attracting foreign players, especially Chinese ones, commentators told GGRAsia.
“Covid[-19] has put the brakes on these developments and with China clamping down on overseas gambling by its citizens, this will no doubt impact the feasibility,” unless fresh foreign consumer groups are targeted, said Govinda Singh, executive director and head of hotels and leisure Asia, at Colliers International, a real estate consultancy and investment advisor, in comments to GGRAsia.
