Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa Wins 'Property Of The Year' Honors At 2018 Global Gaming ExpoReading Time: 2 minutes

 

Atlantic City’s market-leading resort will invest over $11 million into the addition of a new bar and sports wagering experience

Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa announced today it will begin construction of a new venue that will integrate an entertaining bar experience with sports wagering. Adding more than $11 million in development to Borgata’s resort, the destination bar will make its anticipated debut this summer.

“Since Borgata arrived in the Atlantic City market more than 15 years ago, we have maintained a steadfast dedication to property growth and development, with our new concept exemplifying this objective,” said Marcus Glover, President & Chief Operating Officer for Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa. “We are proud to have been at the forefront of legalized sports betting in New Jersey and look forward to advancing our product with an innovative gaming and entertainment experience for our guests to enjoy.”

Borgata made history last June when it became the first Atlantic City casino to accept a legal sports wager under new sports betting regulations in New Jersey. The historic wager came just three days after NJ Governor Phil Murphy signed a bill passed unanimously by the State Legislature, creating a regulated environment where licensed casinos may establish legal sports books.

Since accepting that first inaugural bet, Borgata launched the playMGM NJ Sports mobile sports-betting app in New Jersey. In partnership with GVC Holdings, the playMGM NJ Sports app features a full range of U.S. and selected international sports with customers able to sign-up, deposit and withdraw cash directly from their mobile devices from any location in New Jersey.

As a part of MGM Resorts International, Borgata brings the wealth of that company’s sports book experience to its operation. MGM Resorts International possesses more than 25 years of sports wagering operations experience in Nevada, where the company’s resorts combine to write more than 4 million sports wagers each year with annual handle in excess of $1 billion. Strategic relationships like those announced with the NBA and WNBANHLMLB, as well as the New York Jets, firmly establish MGM Resorts and playMGM as the market leader in partnerships with major professional sports leagues.

Spain’s CEJUEGO Releases “Gaming and Society” Report

Spain's CEJUEGO Releases “Gaming and Society” ReportReading Time: 1 minute

 

CEJUEGO, Spain’s leading gaming trade association, has released its “Gaming and Society” report. As per the report, 9 out of 10 adults in Spain see gambling as an acceptable pastime and 29 million people played at least one type of gambling modality last year. The study was carried out by the Institute of Politics and Governance at the Carlos III University of Madrid.

The study shows that 92% of some of the people surveyed see gaming as leisure. Approximately 6.6 million people (which represent 20% of the population in Spain) visited a casino, bingo or gambling facility in 2018. Moreover, it was detailed that the rate of problem gambling was 0.3% of the Spanish adult population.

“Regarding the games managed by private operators, the analysis concludes that they attracted more restricted audiences of different generations, highlighting that their clients are divided into those who play out of curiosity and those who play as a hobby and because they offer them spaces to socialise with friends and acquaintances,” a spokesperson for CEJUEGO said.

Approximately 1.5 million people gambled online during the study period which represents 0.9% of the total population in Spain. “This group shows dispersed behaviour patterns, from those who play stably to those who do it out of curiosity or who bet on an exciting game. The behaviour of these users indicates that they have learned how to play online and rationalise their use – shorter sessions, moderate monthly spending or decreases in the playing of some games,” CEJUEGO said.

US Blocks League of Legends in Syria and Iran

US Blocks League of Legends in Syria and IranReading Time: 1 minute

 

The U.S. government has blocked League of Legends, one of the most played video games of all time, in Iran and Syria.

Trade sanctions, tariffs and threats of military conflict are the frequent sights when countries are in active dispute, but blocking the access to video games is a novel course of action. Players from Iran and Syrian have expressed despair about this situation.

Right now the ban applies only to Syria and Iran, but if the U.S. enters into future conflict with another country, those citizens potentially may have their access to League of Legends revoked. The sanctions placed on Iran detail that any business in that country cannot trade with the U.S. and that any business caught trading with Iran is in trouble as well. League, like many other free games, has to sustain itself with microtransactions, which undoubtedly counts as a form of trade and, therefore, has to abide by the sanctions.
