Former Wynn Resorts Employee Claims Company Spied on Him

Category : News

A former Wynn Resorts employee who went public about the sexual misconduct allegations leveled against its former boss Steve Wynn is suing the company and several of its executives, claiming that they have invaded his privacy and spied on him at his new workplace.
Jorgen Nielsen, who was formerly employed as artistic director at Wynn Las Vegas’ salon, told the Wall Street Journal for a January 2018 article that detailed a decades-long sexual misconduct pattern by Mr. Wynn that Wynn Resorts took no corporate action after female employees of the company informed senior executives about Mr. Wynn’s unwanted sexual advances.
Mr. Nielsen filed his lawsuit in Nevada state court, naming Wynn Resorts CEO, Matt Maddox, former General Counsel Kim Sinatra, and former Executive Vice President in charge of corporate security James Stern as defendants in the lawsuit. Mr. Wynn, who following the publication of the Wall Street Journal’s damning report stepped down as CEO and Chairman of Wynn Resorts, was not named in Mr. Nielsen’s lawsuit.
The former Wynn Resorts salon chief claims that Mr. Stern proposed spying on him at his new job and that the company’s CEO and Ms. Sinatra gave their approval. According to the lawsuit, the plan involved sending an “undercover operative” to act as a customer at the new resort where Mr. Nielsen got a salon job and question him.
The Wall Street Journal reported last year that Mr. Wynn had for years subjected female employees at his company to unwanted sexual advances and had used his power to force them into having sex with him. Mr. Nielsen was quoted by name in at least two articles about the sexual misconduct scandal that Mr. Wynn and Wynn Resorts were embroiled in.
Last spring, the disgraced businessman filed a defamation lawsuit against Mr. Nielsen, claiming that his statements in relation to the allegations were false. That lawsuit is pending.
Spying on Its Former Employee
Mr. Nielsen claims in his lawsuit against his former employer that it spied on him to undercut his accounts. He also notes that in March 2018, Wynn Resorts conducted surveillance on current salon employees “and the possibility that their surveillance activities would scare persons, like plaintiff Nielsen and those who would support and corroborate his statements, from speaking out.”
Wynn Resorts’ CEO said this past spring before Massachusetts gaming regulators, who conducted a probe into the sexual misconduct allegations against the company’s former boss and how the company itself had addressed those, that it was common knowledge that Mr. Nielsen was talking to people about the scandal after the publication of the Wall Street Journal’s report in January 2018, and that Mr. Stern suggested having someone go to Mr. Nielsen’s new workplace to determine what he was saying exactly.
It also emerged that Mr. Stern suspected that Mr. Nielsen had stolen a list of employee contact information. However, according to the Massachusetts Gaming Commission’s report, Wynn Resorts did not indicate that its former salon director had stolen any information.
In a written statement, Wynn Resorts said that Mr. Nielsen’s lawsuit was without merit and that “the company didn’t authorize any inappropriate surveillance activity.” The company went on that it would “vigorously defend” itself against the lawsuit.

EGT Interactive Enters Sweden, Expands in Portugal with Betclic Deal

Category : News

Bulgarian online casino games supplier EGT Interactive has continued to deliver on its strategy to extend its footprint across European markets with a recently forged deal with French gambling group Betclic.
Under the terms of the deal, the operator’s flagship Betclic brand as well as its Expekt operation have gone live with EGT Interactive’s library of online slots. As a result from the recent roll-out of content by the Bulgarian provider, Betclic and Expekt players now have access to EGT Interactive hit titles such as 40 Super Hot, Amazons’ Battle, The Story of Alexander, and Shining Crown.
Apart from the fact that the recently penned deal has increased EGT Interactive’s network of customers, the company will also benefit from it by entering the newly reorganized Swedish online gambling market for the first time. EGT Interactive titles are now live with Betclic’s Expekt brand in that regulated jurisdiction.
Sweden liberalized its online gaming space early this year to open it to international operators. Betclic has been among the companies licensed by the local regulator, Spelinspektionen, to service Swedish gambling customers in a regulated environment.
EGT Interactive commercial deal with the major French operator will also see the content supplier cement its footprint across the Portuguese gaming market. Betclic was the first operator to go live in Portugal after the reorganization of the country’s iGaming space. It launched sports betting operations in May 2016 and was licensed to provide online casino services to local players later that year.
Partnering a “Trusted and Serious” Operator
Commenting on their agreement with Betclic, EGT Interactive’s Chief Executive, Todor Zahariev, said in a press release published Friday on his company’s official website that they are “delighted to sign this agreement with such a trusted and serious partner as Betclic Group.”
Mr. Zahariev added that “for the first time our content is available for the Swedish players under Expekt brand” and that they are looking forward to entering this new jurisdiction under their partnership with Betclic, whilst they “continue our solid growth in the well-known Portuguese and Maltese regulated markets with Betclic Group following our goal for extensive distribution.”
Betlic Casino Games Specialist François Dogon commented that they are thrilled to expand their offering with “such a reputable provider with a long tradition in the land based and superior online game offering” and that they are confident EGT Interactive’s titles will “add further value to our players experience.”
News about EGT Interactive’s partnership with Betlic emerged just days after the content provider announced another major deal. Earlier this week, the Bulgarian supplier revealed that it had teamed up with Lottoland, a Gibraltar-based online gambling operator that is best known for offering bets on the results of more than 30 different lottery draws.
Under the terms of that deal, Lottoland will diversify its online casino offering with some of EGT Interactive’s most popular online gaming titles.

Dash Dudley Survives Tough Final Table to Win WSOPE €550 PLO Event

Category : Lifestyle

US Pot-Limit Omaha specialist Dash Dudley survived the stacked final table of the WSOP Europe €550 Pot-Limit Omaha for a first-place prize of €51,600 and his second gold bracelet from the popular poker series.
Dudley has been around the poker tables for nearly two decades. His experience definitely paid him well last night when he emerged victorious in the second event on the schedule of this year’s edition of the WSOP Europe, one of the hottest poker festivals on the poker calendar.
The WSOP Europe kicked off with a bang over the weekend to gather together poker pros and amateur players under the roof of King’s Casino Rozvadov in the Czech Republic.
The €550 buy-in Pot-Limit Omaha (8-Handed) drew a field of 476 entries who generated a prize pool of €226,100. The top 38 finishers received payouts from the tournament, min-cashes starting from €1,075.
After two days of action, the field of the event was whittled down to just six players. They returned for a third final day to play down to a champion. Each of the six finalists was guaranteed a minimum payout of €7,850, but six pairs of eyes were set on the first-place prize and the coveted gold bracelet.
Dudley entered the final day of action fourth in chips. He went through ups and downs, a tough final table, and a short heads-up to eventually reign victorious.
Dudley’s Final Day Run
As mentioned above, the eventual champion did not have the most comfortable start of final day of action. He was fourth in chips when cards were thrown in the air and he had to go through some very tough fellow competitors.
Speaking to reporters after his win, Dudley praised his final table opponents, saying that “this is one of the toughest final tables, if not, the toughest final table that I’ve played.” He went on that he ran against “guys with a bracelet, there were players that had won PLO tournaments before” and that “there was a lot of experience, there wasn’t really any soft spot at the final table.”
Down to three-handed play, Dudley suffered a very bad beat that left him with seven big blinds. However, he quickly regained momentum and weakened the player who was responsible for his troubles – Ukraine’s Denis Drobina. Dudley quickly won several big pots to claim the chip lead.
Drobina was out of the race just a couple of hands later. He was eliminated by Canadian Christopher Back, and it was between him and Dudley to determine the winner. The heads-up match kicked off with the eventual winner holding a big lead against his final opponent. And it took Dudley about half an hour to finish off Back and claim the title. Back settled for the second-place prize of €31,825.
As mentioned above, last night’s victory was Dudley’s second win in the WSOP. Last summer, the player took down the $10,000 Pot-Limit Omaha championship in Las Vegas for his first gold bracelet and a healthy payout of just over $1 million.

Swedish Regulator Clears bet365, Three Other Operators of Taking Bets on Underage Athletes

Category : News

Spelinspektionen cleared four gambling operators that were previously investigated for taking bets on the individual performance of underage athletes, a type of wagering activity that is prohibited under Sweden’s gambling law.
The four locally licensed operators that landed in hot water earlier this year but were cleared of wrongdoing by the Swedish gambling watchdog were bet365, Betsson, Kindred Group’s subsidiary Spooniker, and the state-run racing monopoly AB Trav och Galopp (ATG).
Spelinspektionen said in a statement on its official website that it has closed a probe into the four operators after discovering that their local activities had not violated Swedish law.
How Events Unfolded
Earlier this year, the Swedish gambling regulator issued warnings to several of its licensees, urging them to make sure that their activities are compliant with local rules and regulations and that they do not accept wagers on sports where the majority of competitors are athletes under the age of 18.
In July, Spelinspektionen announced that it had imposed fines on eight locally licensed operators after discovering that these had taken bets on underage athletes. The eight penalized operators were local subsidiaries of Flutter Entertainment, Bethard, Casinostugan, GVC Holdings, bet365, Polar Limited, The Stars Group, and Gaming Innovation Group.
Of the eight operators, The Stars Group and bet365 were each slapped with record fines of SEK10 million (just over $1 million).
Following Spelinspektionen’s regulatory action, Gaming Innovation Group suspended its Swedish sportsbook operation, saying that it had found itself “in an impossible position due to the lack of clarity in the Swedish gambling regulation” and that it should protect itself and its shareholders from any potential regulatory troubles resulting from “such vagueries.” GiG further argued that in its current form, Sweden’s gambling law is “too open for interpretation.”
A Closer Inspection
In a statement on its official website from Thursday, Spelinspektionen said that after a closer inspection, it has decided to close its investigation into bet365, Betsson, Kindred, and ATG. The probe aimed to discover whether the four operators have accepted bets on the individual performance of minors in football matches where the majority of contestants were aged 18 or over.
The regulator said that the gaming companies have not violated the terms of their licenses because the football players that were taking part in the contested events were largely aged 18 or over.
Spelinspektionen further pointed out that it was mulling regulations, bans, and restrictions aimed at penalizing match-fixing and other threats to the integrity of Swedish sports. The ongoing discussions involve taking bets on the individual performance of underage athletes and would aim to bring more clarity to that portion of Sweden’s gambling regulations, it also became known.

Top 5 Mobile Slot Games in 2020

Top 5 Mobile Slot Games in 2020
There are only 2 months away from the year of 2020. 2020 marks a very special year to Malaysian – the Wawasan 2020 proposed by our beloved prime minister. Although our nation has not achieved the set goals due to various factors, I suppose Malaysia is still considered a highly developed country within Asia Pacific region.
Same goes for the local mobile slot game industry. There have been lot of changes in 2019. A lot of new slot game brands are being introduced to the market, given the unprecedented success achieved by 918KISS.
The highlight of the year is of course, the shutdown of 918KISS in August 2019. Nobody knows the cause. There have been rumours. None of them is true. Anyway, we should always look forward to the future. More importantly, what would become the next top mobile slot games in Malaysia? Let’s check it out.
1. 918KISS
Thought you said the game has been brought down? Well, I would say it’s still too early to conclude that. The demand for 918KISS is still crazily high in the country. Some said it will probably make its comeback at the beginning of 2020, with a brand new image and game design.
If this is going to happen, we think it will certainly take up more than half of the local mobile slot game market share. 918KISS is one of the most trusted slot game brands since years ago. It has also accumulated a number of loyal fans who always stick to the games.
We think the possibility of its return in 2020 is pretty high. Therefore, we rank it as the No.1 mobile slot game next year.
2. 918KISS 2
A counterfeit product huh? I would say 918KISS 2 does even better than the original game version. People won’t usually find out the best part of it – game loading speed. There is a very tiny difference from the original one, maybe 0.1 second? Nonetheless, it makes a lot difference when a lot of 0.1 seconds adding up together.
918KISS 2 is currently the most played slot game in the country, only after the termination of the original 918KISS. We are pretty sure that it will remain as one of the top 5 mobile slot games in 2020, even if 918KISS comes back to the main stage.
3. MEGA888
Undoubtedly, it is a new rising star in 2019. Everyone has been keeping an eye on MEGA888. It has a truly fantastic UI layout, extremely high winning payout (based on random number generator algorithm), and also amazing game loading speed. Everyone loves to play it.
Although its number of active players is still far behind the 918KISS and 918KISS 2, the number has been growing rapidly. We forecast it will possibly overtake 918KISS and 918KISS 2 soon, probably in the year of 2021.
Moreover, it’s very easy to download MEGA888, much faster than the downloading process of other mobile slot games. You may learn how to download MEGA888 here. It’s available in both Android and IOS smartphones. So you don’t have to worry about getting a new phone just to play this game.
4. PUSSY888
Some said PUSSY888 is the most beautiful mobile slot game brand in the market nowadays. I kinda agree with this, i mean it has a really sleek design on gaming layout. But, I can tell its back-end structure is still a bit outdated as compared with MEGA888.
However, most of the slot game players can’t really find out about the weaknesses. It also adopts high winning payout policy to attract slot game players. So it will most likely stay on the list for 2020.
5. XE88
Last but not least, XE88, which is in turn the newest mobile slot game in Malaysia. A lot of people are really amazed by the premium quality of its game design as well as slot game engine. We didn’t see this coming.
So, it has quickly grabbed a large chunk of the market share just few months right after it was introduced to the market. We can see that Malays are more into XE88, while Chinese and Indians are still spending most of their time on MEGA888. It will definitely become one of the largest mobile online betting brand in Malaysia. It’s just the matter of time.
Play Mobile Slot Games with the Most Trusted Online Casino Agent
It seems like we have now a better understanding about what to play in 2020. But, the key question is, do you have a reliable online casino agent? It’s completely useless if you can’t get a trusted agent to play with. This is because most likely you won’t get your money after huge winning.
Well, start doing your homework now and search for the most trusted online casino agent on internet!

Singapore Regulator Slaps Record Fines on City’s Two Casinos

Category : News

Singapore’s casino regulator has slapped record fines on the city-state’s two casinos during the previous fiscal year, local news outlet the Straits Times reports.
The two gambling venues received a collective S$746,700 in fines during the April 2018-March 2019 financial year. The amount was the highest recorded in the past five years and represented a significant jump from the 2017-18 financial year when Resorts World Sentosa and Marina Bay Sands were slapped with a total of S$60,000 in penalties.
Fines imposed on Resorts World Sentosa, the hotel and casino resort operated by Malaysian hospitality group Genting, accounted for the bulk of the amount that was collected from violations of Singapore casino regulations.
As revealed by the Singaporean Casino Regulatory Authority, Resorts World Sentosa was fined three times over the previous financial year and had to pay a total of S$730,000. The Singapore’s casino regulator once hammered a S$400,000 fine on the property’s parent company over its failure to implement certain internal controls.
Another penalty of S$250,000 was imposed for “failure to comply with a direction that relates to the conduct, supervision or control of casino operations.” The final fine totaled S$80,000 and was slapped on the casino resort for failure to prevent five underage individuals from gaining access to the property’s gaming floor. The legal gambling age in Singapore is 21.
As for Marina Bay Sands, it was fined twice during the 2018-19 financial year. The property had to pay a S$10,000 penalty for failure to prevent one underage individual from gaining access to its gaming floor and another S$5,000 levy for failing to prevent one permanent resident from entering its gaming floor without paying the required entry fee.
Expansion at Singapore’s Two Casino Resorts
Earlier this year, the government of Singapore agreed to extend the casino exclusivity of the city-state’s two gaming resorts through 2030 in exchange for pledges by their owners to expand the properties and add more attractions that would boost international visits.
Both Resorts World Sentosa and Marina Bay Sands unveiled S$4.5 billion expansion plans that would create two of the world’s largest integrated resorts. The owner of Marina Bay Sands plans to add a fourth hotel tower located near the property’s three existing ones. The new building will feature 1,000 hotel suites and its own sleek rooftop that will very much resemble the main resort’s iconic shiplike roof.
At Resorts World Sentosa, Genting will expand the property’s gross floor area by about 50% and will add 164,000 square meters of new attractions, entertainment, and lifestyle offerings, including a Minion Park and a “larger-than-life” Super Nintendo World immersive theme park, among others.
Singapore’s two casino resorts opened doors in 2010. The two properties quickly became extremely popular with Asian high rollers and turned the city-state into one of the world’s largest casino markets, behind only Macau and Las Vegas.

Playson Slots Go Live with Ninja Casino in Estonia, Finland

Category : News

Online casino content developer and supplier Playson has rolled out its slots portfolio with Swedish gambling group Global Gaming after a recently penned agreement between the two companies.
As a result from Playson’s latest major content distribution deal, the provider has been able to launch its titles with Global Gaming’s flagship brand Ninja Casino, as revealed in a press release from earlier today.
Following a quick and seamless integration, Playson’s slots collection is now available to Ninja Casino players in Estonia and Finland. Customers of the popular online gaming brand have access to its hit Timeless Fruit Slots series as well as recent releases such as Solar Queen, Clover Riches, and Vikings Fortune: Hold and Win, among others.
Commenting on their partnership with Global Gaming, Playson Business Development Manager Lars Kollind said that the Swedish operator “is a major name in the industry and launching our portfolio of games with them is an important move for Playson.”
He added that their latest commercial deal allows them to “expand our operator network across Europe, while also demonstrates the growing appeal of our content.”
Playson’s portfolio currently includes more than 60 HTML5 games that are available across all channels. The casino games developer runs offices in Malta and Ukraine and is licensed by the Malta Gaming Authority, the UK Gambling Commission, the Romanian gambling regulator – ONJN, and a number of other European regulatory bodies.
European Expansion for Playson
The Global Gaming deal has been the latest of a series of content distribution agreements penned by Playson in recent months, with all those significantly expanding the company’s presence across multiple European markets.
Last month, Playson announced that it had teamed up with Kindred Group to roll out a selection of its titles with the major online gambling operator, which recently expanded its footprint beyond Europe and launched its operations in two US states where online gambling is legal – New Jersey and Pennsylvania.
It was last month again when Playson unveiled a content distribution deal with online casino and sports betting brand Betzest.
In August, Playson announced that it has been fully certified to provide its content in Sweden to locally licensed operators. The Scandinavian nation reorganized its online gambling market early this year and opened it to interested international companies.
Global Gaming was among the first entries into the newly liberalized iGaming space of Sweden. However, it was the first operator to have its license revoked under the new regulatory regime. In June, the Swedish Gambling Authority, Spelinspektionen, announced that it has revoked the company’s license over serious shortcomings in its anti-money laundering practices.
Global Gaming appealed that decision in several Swedish courts, but each of those sided with the regulator. The company was also ordered to suspend its local operations, while its license revocation was under review.
Global Gaming announced last month that its flagship Ninja Casino brand would relaunch in Sweden. However, it would be operated by its partner Viral Interactive Ltd., a subsidiary of gaming technology provider Finnplay.

Renat Bohdanov Wins First 2019 WSOP Europe Gold Bracelet

Category : Lifestyle

The WSOP Europe kicked off this weekend at King’s Casino in the Czech village of Rozvadov, which has over the past several years become the European epicenter of quality poker action.
After a successful summer in Las Vegas, the WSOP has now traveled all the way to the heart of Europe for one of this year’s most exciting live tournament events. The major poker festival began in style with a €350 Opener No-Limit Hold’em tournament that saw Ukraine’s Renat Bohdanov emerge victorious over a massive field and claim his first WSOP gold bracelet.
The WSOP Europe’s opening event took place over four days. It saw its two starting flights attract a total of 1,011 entries, all thirsty for WSOP fame and a coveted gold piece of jewelry that accompanies every win.
The final day of the €350 buy-in event was played this past Wednesday and saw ten players return at the host casino to play down to a champion, the winner of the first 2019 WSOP Europe gold bracelet.
Israeli player Eyal Bensimhon was leading the ten finalists at the start of the final day of action. With a stack of 6.8 million, the player was running for his first WSOP gold bracelet. Bensimhon previously scooped a gold ring from the WSOP’s sister series – the WSOP Circuit. The opening event gold bracelet eluded the Israeli poker pro to go to Bohdanov.
Bohdanov’s Run in the Event
The Ukrainian player entered the final day of action with the third largest chip stack. He bagged 3 million worth of chips the previous night to secure a somewhat comfortable start of the final stage of the tournament.
Bohdanov kept his momentum throughout the day, building his stack bit by bit. Down to five-handed play, the Ukrainian won one of the key hands of the final table. He participated in an all-in challenge against Michal Kral that could have gone terribly wrong for the eventual champion, if it wasn’t for the river card. Kral exited the race in fifth place, while his Ukrainian fellow player emerged as the chip leader with a big advantage over the remaining three runners.
Mikhailo Hryhoriev, the other Ukrainian at the final table, went out in fourth place and Bensimhon departed in third to leave it to Bohdanov and Hungary’s Norbert Mosonyi to determine the champion.
It was a long heads-up battle. Bohdanov dominated action for the better part of the duel, but Mosonyi, despite being less experienced, proved to be a challenge for the Ukrainian. The Hungarian player managed to take the lead a couple of times, but the title was Bohdanov’s to win.
On what turned out to be the final hand of the event, Mosonyi raised to 1.5 million and his opponent moved all in. Mosonyi called after giving it some thought and the two players showed their hands. The Hungarian held [Kd][5d] and Bohdanov turned over [Ad][9s]. The board ran out [Ah][Kd][20d][As][6s] to secure Bohdanov with the victory.
The tournament’s champion claimed €53,654 in prize money and the shiny gold bracelet. As for his runner-up, Mosonyi had to settle for a consolation prize of €33,112. Both players also secured tickets into the €10,350 buy-in WSOP Europe Main Event later this month.
