Donald Trump is preparing their campaign for the stage that is final winning the White House in November over Hillary Clinton. This week the Republican nominee announced the hiring of three key positions, and probably the most notable revelation to the gambling community is the employing of Michael Abboud.
Abboud is the nephew of Andy Abboud, the Las Vegas Sands senior vice president of government relations and community development. Vegas Sands is owned by billionaire Sheldon Adelson that has pledged $100 million to Trump’s efforts.
Based on the Trump campaign, Abboud will ‘execute the campaign’s rapid response and day-to-day texting.’ The 26-year-old will also provide Trump with briefings and breaking news stories.
‘I am constantly building a superior political team,’ Trump said in a statement as we continue to work to defeat Hillary Clinton this November. ‘We are taking our messages to the people so that individuals can Make United states Great Again.’
Adelson is one of the staunchest supporters of the GOP. While the billionaire has historically spread his donations across Republican candidates, in 2016 he’s going all-in with Trump.
Along with being one of the Republican Party’s most (more…)

An music artists’ rendering of Crown’s towering Crown Sydney Hotel Resort, which was green-lit this week
James Packer’s Crown Resorts has received approval to transform the skyline of Sydney, Australia, because of the creation of a skyscraping $1.1 billion casino resort.
The 72-story Crown Sydney Hotel Resort project has cleared the hurdle that is final finalized down on Monday by the brand New South Wales Planning Assessment Commission, and today awaits the formality of a green light through the state government for construction to begin. Crown was also awarded a 99-year gambling license.
The casino resort complex, that may be Sydney’s 2nd, after Star Casino, will tower above Barangaroo on the northwestern edge of Sydney’s central business district and will aim to attract high-rolling gamblers from Asia.
Crown Resorts recently announced it would sell $800 million of its shares in Macau-based Melco-Crown, reducing its stake from 34 percent to 27 %, reigning in its expansion in Asia in order to focus on projects nearer to home.
Like the Sydney casino, Crown has costly new developments earmarked for Melbourne and Perth and, as Macau’s fortunes tumble, they evidently decided it’s safer to lure Asian high-rollers to Australia.
The Crown Sydney will boast a 300-room resort with apartments, restaurants, bars, stores, conference facilities and VIP video gaming rooms. Crown has said that it will cre (more…)

Wynn Resorts’ legal battle to get its $2.1 billion project in Everett, near Boston, off the ground received a boost on Friday as soon as the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) recommended the company for a waterfront development permit.
The Everett project, which will be referred to as Wynn Boston Harbor, has been beset by appropriate challenges at every turn, despite having been awarded a continuing state gaming license by the Massachusetts Gaming Commission in late 2014.
Wynn has been sued by the City of Boston, plus the City of Somerville, over the water from the chemical that is former on which project is built. Meanwhile, the populous City of Revere, where a competing Mohegan Sun proposition failed to win over the video gaming payment, has sued the gaming payment for failing to be won over by its competing proposal.
While the Boston lawsuit was thrown out in December 2015 by a judge who blasted it for being ‘spurious,’ and filled with ‘inflammatory descriptions,’ and ‘hyperbole,’ the Somerville challenge remained the impediment that is only proceeding.
Construction was halted four months ago when Somerville’s mayor, Joseph Curtatone appealed the waterfront permit that had initially been approv (more…)

Pennsylvania casinos will begin paying higher soon taxes on revenues generated at their tables. Lawmakers in Harrisburg continue steadily to look for new sources of income to bridge a $1 billion spending plan space in hawaii’s investing plan for the upcoming year that is fiscal and gambling is enemy # 1.
The Republican-controlled legislature recently authorized increasing fees on casino table games from 14 to 16 %, a seemingly modest hike that in reality will pay significant dividends. In accordance with calculations, the continuing state stands to get an additional $17 million annually from the two % bump.
The 16 per cent taxation rate goes into effect week that is next.
‘This one sort of came out of nowhere,’ Sands Casino Resort Bethlehem CEO Mark Juliano told The Call in Allentown morning. ‘We’re unhappy about. Pennsylvania is currently the tax environment that is highest for casinos, but we’ll deal along with it.’
The tax increase on Pennsylvania casinos will impact that is most the Sands Bethlehem resort. Owned by billionaire Sheldon Adelson, certainly one of Donald Trump’s biggest financiers in the 2016 presidential election, Adelson’s venue is considered the most profitabl (more…)
