Binion’s Gambling Hall is proud to announce the addition of two major new attractions  ̶  Whiskey Licker Up and Hotel Apache.

 

Whiskey Licker Up will be the first of its kind in Las Vegas  ̶  a full-service saloon with a huge rotating bar as its centerpiece. The 6500-square-foot facility will be located directly above the original Whiskey Licker Bar on the southwest corner of the property, overlooking the First Street Stage. Whiskey Licker Up will offer drinks, dining, dancing, live entertainment and even a mechanical bull, all with incredible views of the most exciting street in the world. Guests will enjoy an amazing sensory experience that includes live acts from Fremont Street and in-house entertainment in a setting located within feet of the Slotzilla Zoom Line and all under the bright lights of the Fremont Street Experience. Construction is expected to be completed by this summer.

Hotel Apache at Binion’s Gambling Hall is a concept likewise inspired by the rich history of the property, providing an experience that will take you back in time. Hotel Apache will be a unique and boutique hotel featuring 81 rooms with vintage-style furnishings reminiscent of the original Hotel Apache that opened in 1932. The property also has a long history of eerie occurrences that will appeal to many. As General Manager Tim Lager says, “You can’t buy our history. But you can enjoy it with us. And if some of that history seems to come alive, it’s only your imagination. Or is it?” Construction of the rooms is also expected to be completed by this summer.

The Iowa House has passed a bill which legalises betting on sporting events and fantasy sports and send it to the governor for consideration.

The Senate gave its approval and the bill now goes to Gov. Kim Reynolds who has said she will await the final version of the bill to decide whether she will sign it.

The bill authorises the Iowa Racing and Gaming Commission to establish rules for betting on professional, collegiate and international sporting events, including motor racing.

The bill also legalises fantasy sports contests and internet fantasy sports betting but delays betting based on college sporting event statistics until May 2020.

The commission regulates the 19 state-licensed casinos in Iowa. Once the rules are set up by the commission as early as this summer sports bets can be placed at casinos or on a mobile application they establish.

Sports betting would be limited to those 21 and older, and the bill sets a 6.75% tax on net receipts. Taxes and licensing fees could bring in estimated annual revenue of $2.3 million to $4 million annually.

5-14 Japan Approves New Scheme to Stem Problems Related to GamblingReading Time: 1 minute

 

As part of a plan to stem problems related to gambling, Japan has approved a scheme which limits people’s access to casinos and other betting establishments as well as removing cash machines from these locations. The move comes ahead of the opening of several casinos in the country.

Based on the plan, prefectures in the country will also come up with their own steps to counter any gambling-related problems.

“We will create a healthy society by thoroughly implementing measures based on the basic plan in order to prevent people from finding themselves in difficult situations,” Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga said.

Under the basic plan, operators of slot machines, pachinko parlours and government-operated gambling venues, including horse racing and keirin racing tracks, have been asked to remove cash machines from their facilities. Pachinko parlour operators are urged not to allow customers to enter their premises if requested by family members. The authorities also urged horse racetrack operators to utilise facial recognition systems to restrict the entry of gambling addicts.

Other measures in place include a proposal on putting up warnings about gambling addiction on newspapers, magazines, and TV commercials. It also urges the country’s 47 prefectures and 20 major cities to set up treatment facilities for gambling addicts by 2020.
