Google Loses Court Battle

A major "freedom of information" court case for European Google users was decided this week when a UK judge ordered Google to remove old articles about a businessman's past crime from its search results. With his ruling the judge dealt a blow to Google as it supported Europe's "right to be forgotten" law. 

In short, the law, which Google was testing, states that every person has the right to start anew, regardless if their past misdeeds that took place in their home, their business or in a Vegas Casino. The case revolved about two businessmen who appealed to the court to order Google to delist several articles about their old crimes.

Wynn Saga Continues

Few companies have gone through as many tumults in as short a time as has the Wynn Resorts. A massive court battle between Steve Wynn and his ex-wife was followed by allegations of sexual misconduct  against Wynn who resigned  as company CEO.

That quickly led to Wynn, a Vegas legend who set the company on a successful course that's been emulated by other Vegas casinos, to sell off his shares in the company. Wynn is now basically a non-entity in the company that he founded and built but the Wynn name is still a player.

Superstar Racehorse Winx

Winx has captured the hearts of horse racing fans around the world who are leaving their online games and gaming devices to watch the thundering mare pull off win after win. Winx is breaking records left and right as she puts Australian horse racing on the map.

Few mares have been able to stand up to the males the way that Winx is doing. The champion Australian thoroughbred racehorse has won 25 consecutive stakes races in the last 3 years including 18 Group 1's at distances that range from 1300 meters to 2200 meters.

Gaming Conventions

Gamers who play online games (either the casino type of game found here at the Grande Vegas Casino or other online games) and those who play face to face competitions, generally try to keep up with upcoming game trade shows and conventions. These are the events where developers talk about the games, demonstrate new features and role-play characters and allow people to experiment with playing upcoming games.

Some people wait for the conventions and shows that take place in their locale but others actually travel long distances to participate in some of these events.

If you're thinking about attending a show or convention, we've reviewed some of the top 2018 Trade Shows and Conventions for gamers:

US Supreme Court to Decide on Sports Betting

Sports betting is a multi billion dollar industry that is presently dominated by Vegas casino interests, illegal bookies and offshore markets. That may change this May when the Supreme Court rules on the legality of disallowing sports betting online. 

The expectation is that the Supreme Court will, indeed, give the go-ahead for online sports betting to move forward. If so, observers are worried that monetizing and implementing this industry will fail thanks to the NBA and MLB's push for a piece of the action.

Are the gambling revenues really getting to the schools?

Many communities offer Vegas games and other lottery activities to their citizens via local gambling venues, gaming events and other casino-type activities. In many cases a portion of the revenues from the profits achieved through such pursuits are designated to go to charities, non-profits and other local public institutions. 

This point is often cited by gambling proponents when they promote the building of new casinos and the opening of new gambling sites. They aim to demonstrate to legislators that, by expanding gambling options for local citizens, the community will benefit.

Wynn Investigation

Wynn Resorts, a giant in the Vegas casino scene, has been struggling to recoup after the company was rocked by charges of sexual misconduct against CEO Steven Wynn. In the last few months Wynn resigned as company CEO, sold his shares and stepped completely away from the running of the business – a business that he founded and built.

The company's holdings in Macau, which are considerable, are in jeopardy due to the Macau Gaming Commission's investigation of the charges. Now the company is facing a further challenge in the form of Massachusetts casino regulators who are stepping up their own investigation.
