Developer Threatens To Walk From Casino Project In Pittsburgh

Play at Golden Casino

The casino that is planned for the North Shore in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania is becoming one big mess. The project has been on the shelf for a while now, and if a decision on a change of ownership is not approved soon it could be a long time before the project is complete.

Developer Don Barden won the rights to the license for the casino last year, but has since failed to secure the necessary financing to finish building the casino. Enter Neil Bluhm.

The billionaire has agreed to take over control and ownership of the casino from Barden. Before that can happen, the state must approve the change of ownership. As of now, they have not.

Bluhm was testifying before the state’s Senate community and has voiced his displeasure that he has not already been approved. He claims if there is no approval by Wednesday, that the cost of finishing the project could rise dramatically.

He also has now stated that if he is not approved soon, he may simply walk away from the whole project. “I’m doing this, because I think it makes sense. It’s a good investment, and I also think it’s a good thing for the Commonwealth and the city.

Who says that casino gambling is being affected by the economy? Someone had better let Wynn Resorts in on that little bit of information. The company reported its earnings for the second quarter on Thursday.

Rejoice was the word from Wynn Resorts Ltd. on Thursday. The company announced their earnings for the second quarter and they were far higher than in the same quarter last year.

The company more than tripled their earnings from last year with $272 million. That is $2.42 per share. Last year their earnings were only at $.82 per share with a total of $89.6 million.

The companies Macau property was a major reason for the increase in revenue. The Wynn Macau saw a rise of fifty percent in earnings from the previous year.

The news was not all good for Wynn. The Wynn Las Vegas revenue dropped twenty four percent. That is following a very disturbing trend for casino operators in Sin City. It also shows that the economy is having some effect on casinos.

It had long been thought that casinos were immune to the problems of the economy. That is proving not to be the case this year. Many casinos have their revenue numbers way down from in past years.

Dancing With The Stars Results In Gambling Win For Some

Play at Golden Casino

Dancing With The Stars will dance their way out of people’s living rooms for another year tonight. The results will be revealed and a winner will be crowned.

If it were purely up to the judges, Kristi Yamaguchi would become the newest winner of the program. Votes of viewers is what counts, however, meaning any of the three contestants could win.

Jason Taylor has a large fan base and could sneak by Yamaguchi in the popular vote. He has caught a lot of slack in South Florida for his appearance on the show, and most likely will be glad when it is over.

Cristian de la Fuentes has had a nice run through the competition, and has won over many viewers by dancing hurt for the past several weeks. The sympathy probably will not be enough to make him a winner.

Anyone gambling on the show’s winner would most certainly have to go with Yamaguchi. She has been the most consistent of the three finalists, and performed well again on last night’s finals show.

Tonight, the winner will be crowned. Viewers will have a whole year to wait for the next version of the show, and one lucky celebrity will walk away as the Dancing With The Stars champion for this season.

American Idol will conclude its season tonight when a new winner is announced. The two finalists, David Cook and David Archuleta have been the gambling favorites to win the competition all year.

Archuleta started as the gambling favorite when the finalists were first were announced. Since then, Cook has slowly inched closer to Archuleta in the odds, and the past few weeks has overtaken Archuleta as the gambling favorite.

After last night’s finale, it now appears that the gambling underdog could walk away with the title tonight. Archuleta was praised throughout the night by the judges. His performances were nearly flawless.

Cook, on the other hand, had trouble finding his groove for the majority of the night. He struggled with song choice, and was clearly defeated by Archuleta vocally.

What voters will decide is another story. Both Cook and Archuleta have been fan favorites all year, as evidenced by neither of the two ever appearing in the bottom three.

With the results show only hours away, Archuleta may once again prove why gambling is an inexact science. The underdog just might become the new champion.
