Commemorates partnership between The Seminole Tribe of Florida and Enterprise Rancheria

 

Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Sacramento at Fire Mountain held a topping off ceremony on Feb. 13, 2019, to celebrate reaching this major construction milestone in the project. The highly-anticipated property is slated to be the premier entertainment destination in Northern California once it opens in fall of 2019.

“I want to thank everyone involved in this momentous development,” said Mark Birtha, president of Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Sacramento at Fire Mountain. “It is such an incredible feeling of pride and excitement seeing it coming to life. I know this property is going to be a landmark in the region and a shining representation of all the Hard Rock brand has to offer.”

During the event, the final beam, signed by tribal members, was grandly lifted up by a crane to the top of the structure. As part of the ceremony, Hard Rock executives and tribal council recognized the construction workers’ incredible efforts and commitment to the project. The topping off event also commemorated the historic partnership between two Native American Tribes — The Seminole Tribe of Florida, owners of Hard Rock International and Enterprise Rancheria.

“This is truly a great day for our Tribe and community and for the workers, customers and business partners of our region,” said Enterprise Rancheria Tribal Chairperson Glenda Nelson. “Partnering with Hard Rock and the Seminole Tribe is a real game changer with their world-recognized brand, commitment to premium quality experiences across a full spectrum of hospitality and entertainment options, and unique corporate values make them a dream partner for us.”

Situated in the North Sacramento Valley, the property will offer the latest in live music and entertainment, hospitality, world-class gaming and exceptional cuisine. It will feature a hotel with multiple suite offerings, a large gaming facility with over 1,800 slot machine and table game positions, along with an outdoor pool and deck area, large meeting space and a great selection of bars and restaurants. The property also includes signature brand amenities like the Rock Shop® and Body Rock® fitness center.

Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Sacramento at Fire Mountain is expected to create more than 2,000 construction jobs upon its completion, with nearly 750 working at peak times on the project any given day. The development includes approximately 1,500 tons of steel (1/10th the weight of the Brooklyn Bridge steel), 15,000 cubic yards of concrete (if paved, would stretch to downtown Sacramento), 550 tons of rebar steel (laid from end to end, would stretch to San Francisco), 120 miles of electrical conduit, as well as 380 miles of wire and cabling (would stretch from Sacramento to Los Angeles) being used for the project. Upon opening later this year, the hotel-casino will employ over 1,000 full-time and part-time team members.

5-12 Psyonix Disables Loot Boxes of Rocket League in the Netherlands and BelgiumReading Time: 1 minute

 

Psyonix, an American video game developer based in San Diego, has disabled loot boxes in its arena soccer racing game Rocket League for players in the Netherlands and Belgium due to government regulations.

The Dutch Games of Chance authority, or Kansspelautoriteit, has investigated several popular games containing loot boxes in 2018 and considered many of these to be illegal. The titles investigated include PUBG, CSGO, FIFA 18, Dota 2, and Rocket League.

When random loot box content is tradable, there is almost always a certain monetary value associated with that content. This is why these countries consider paid loot boxes with random content gambling.

Aside from Rocket League and PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, loot boxes were also disabled in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive and Dota 2 within the same regions in 2018.

Tony’s-Reel True Flip re-imagines wheel of fortune in its new Tony’s ReelReading Time: 1 minute

 

Genius flair and charisma are two basic stones of Tony’s success. His team created ELVIS, an AI combining science works in search of new energy sources. Looking for bright minds, Tony made ELVIS public — shaped like a fortune wheel for a little show. Any useful experiment will be rewarded to support further research.

Unique in mechanics, Tony’s Reel has 3 open reels and 3 fixed pay lines. The winning combos are formed from the outer to inner reel. The game is medium-volatile, with a 360x maximum win.

The only Wild is found on the middle reel. Appearing on a pay line, it stands for any symbol, and activates a re-spin with Wild expanded throughout the reel – thus giving a guaranteed win.

Based on HTML5, the game has vivid visuals to run natively on any modern device, bringing the ultimate gaming experience to a diverse range of players.

“In a will to enrich the player’s impressions, we turned to another well-known mechanic, heavily re-working it and adding all these small touches, that truly make the product stand out in the market. With the good initial feedback received, we are ready to offer this game to our partner network” – said CMO of True Flip, Konstantin Katsev.

Tony’s Reel demo is available at https://wof-games.trueflip.co/.
