Empty House at Scottish toto sgp Halls

Five Scots bingo halls shut as smoking ban drives players out

 

It has emerged that Scottish toto sgp clubs are being forced out of business by the recent smoking ban.

 

As a result of the ban 3 months ago reports show a decrease of up to 27 percent in revenue, with five clubs now having to close their doors.

 

The Bingo Association backed the ban but now industry chiefs are warning more will close and say they want tax breaks to help them keep going.

 

Scotland ‘s biggest independent bingo operator has shut down two halls, in Edinburgh and Dunfermline. The Dunfermline hall, in Fife Leisure Park, only opened a year ago.

 

The Inverness firm, who employ more than 500 people in Scotland, say revenues have plummeted as customers use time between games to go outside for a smoke instead of spending cash in the halls.

 

Managing director Peter Perrins said: “Players arrive late, depart earlier and take any opportunity to exit the building in pursuit of their nicotine fix.

 

“Tabletop bingo and gaming machines form a significant part of the business and these have begun hemorrhaging money.”

 

Another operator has now closed their bingo halls in Stirlingshire, Fife and Lanark.

 

Operations manager Mike Lowe said: “Within four weeks of the ban being introduced, it was apparent business would be devastated and extreme measures would need to be taken.

 

“I have recorded as many as 47 per cent of players …

Euro off-track.com, the pari-mutuel and content provider based in the Isle of Man in the British Isles has made ‘co-mingling’ of wagers on international racing a reality.

 

The company in conjunction with it’s stateside based partner US off-track, commenced a ‘worlds first’, the broadcasting of a new wagering service in the US, with the introduction of top quality Irish greyhound racing.

Vincent Caldwell, Director of Euro off-track.com said “We have been working on this project with our partners, US off-track and the Irish Greyhound Board, with the initial goal to achieve co-mingling of international transatlantic wagers for a considerable period of time.

Japan eyes casino jackpot

TOKYO (Reuters) – Hit by years of economic malaise that have trimmed jobs and budgets, a number of Japanese local governments are touting casinos as a cure.

The Nihon Keizai Shimbun (Nikkei) reported on Saturday that at least eight localities are studying the idea of building casinos to bring in much-needed jobs and money.

 

Tokyo, whose nationalist governor Shintaro Ishihara reportedly strongly backs the idea of casinos, is set to pull together a report on the issue, with estimates of the economic benefits, as early as October, the Nikkei said.

 

Ishihara has also reportedly called on other governors to work together in lobbying the central government in favour of the plan.

 

For gambling in Japan is tightly controlled and strictly limited to a handful of events such as horse races. Places such as casinos, where money would be the prize, are prohibited.

 

Although pachinko gaming parlours are ubiquitous and nearly always full, they cannot provide cash prizes directly. Instead, winners get presents or chips they can exchange for cash.

 

Several local governments have already put out reports that are likely to set eyes gleaming in many a struggling community.

 

Estimates by a small city in central Aichi prefecture, some 269 km (168 miles) west of Tokyo, show that, based on overseas examples, the construction of three large UFABet casinos with 150 card and roulette tables, and some 2000 slot machines, could pull in more than 30 billion yen a year.

Ligaz11 Review of Sharp Sports Betting

 

 

Stanford Wong is rightfully regarded as one of the most well-respected gambling authors. While he is most noted for his books about beating the game of blackjack, he has also written books on Pai Gow Poker, Video Poker, Casino Tournaments, and other topics. In his first new book for Pi Yee press since 1993, Wong examines the mathematics of advantage sports betting.

 

The book begins with the basics, explaining the terminology of sports betting and how to interpret the numbers on the walls and screens in a sports book. Wong follows this with a discussion of money management, some information and advice about betting sports on the Internet, and a discussion of mathematics. These sections are all very well written, but I was surprised that there wasn’t more information on proportional betting in the section on money management. Wong mentions what is commonly referred to as Kelly betting, but instead of providing some details about how one would apply this to advantage sports betting, Wong refers the reader to the blackjack literature. Overall, the math is presented in a clear style that should be palatable to anyone who doesn’t have nightmares of their high school math courses. Wong manages to thread the needle pretty well by presenting powerful techniques in a clear manner that doesn’t require an advanced degree to understand.

 

While Sharp Sports Betting is primarily about selecting good sports bets based on mathematics, the next few sections provide a brief discussion on some aspects …

French revenge could light up the Judi Online Qq Euros

Let us be honest, the Euros have been a bit of a damp squib this time around.

Northern Europe has had a wet and cloudy June and this seems to have been reflected on the field of France 2016.

The free-flowing football of Brazil 2014 is a bit of a memory, perhaps a telling comment on the tactics-heavy European teams.

With the possible exception of Portugal’s 3-3 draw with Hungary, there have been no standout games which ebbed and flowed to keep the neutrals enthralled. There have been a couple of thrashings – France racing to a 4-0 half-time lead over Iceland or Belgium thumping Hungary 4-0 for instance, and some very clinical, high-quality Judi Online Qq Games – Italy in the group stage most notably, but not a lot to write home about.

The multi-team format, three times the size of the eight country Euro ’92 in Sweden, has led to some teams deliberately playing for draws (Slovakia against England), fielding weakened elevens (Italy v Eire) or even happily losing 1-0 (Northern Ireland against Germany).

The knock-out stage was supposed to add some spice to the mix and has done to a small extent – Wales’ surprising 3-1 dismissal of Belgium woke the continent up even more than Iceland’s 2-1 win over a soporific and mesmerised England.

Then Germany and Italy provided some welcome comedy in their penalty shoot-out after an exhausting 120 minutes.

Finally France remembered their lines as host nation to the relief of most football followers …

Urawa Reds the big losers in Togel Singapore Golden Week gala

 

 

It’s tough being Urawa Reds. The “biggest club in Asia” tag is a difficult one to live down, even if the Saitama giants haven’t come close to winning a trophy for years.

 

The Reds burst onto the Asian football scene by winning the J. League under the swashbuckling auspices of German coach Guido Buchwald in 2006, before his more circumspect successor Holger Osieck steered the Saitama giants to Asian Champions League glory the following year.

 

But no sooner had Urawa begun to dominate the J. League than their world fell apart, as the popular Saitama side spectacularly disintegrated in the 2007 title race, prompting the dismissal of coach Osieck just two games into the 2008 season. Two more Togel Singapore German coaches followed, but neither Gert Engels nor Volker Finke could steer Urawa to the silverware they so desperately craved.

 

Enter Zeljko Petrovic. The Montenegrin coach enjoyed a peripatetic playing career, turning out for the likes of Dinamo Zagreb, Sevilla and PSV Eindhoven in a 16-year career spent largely in the Netherlands. Petrovic ended his playing days at small Dutch outfit RKC Waalwijk – the club he coached in the Dutch second division in 2007-08 – but crucially he also enjoyed a three-year spell in Japan with Urawa Reds.

 

Petrovic’s time in Japan coincided with Urawa’s relegation to the second tier of the J. League and the charismatic coach knows all about the Reds’ storied history. Urawa packed out every game of their compact …

EURO 2008 SF: Germany 3-2 Turkey, Basel

Boral 22′, Schweinsteiger 27′, Klose 79′, Semturk 86′, Lahm 90′

 

“They can play games like this, when maybe they are not the best team, and still win. That is why they are so good.”

 

Fatih Terim, Turkey’s coach, could have uttered these words tonight, but in fact it was Bruce Arena after Germany had edged the States 1-0 in Ulsan in the 2002 World Cup quarter-final.

 

Only two years ago, we were talking about how Qq Poker long, or rather short, Germany would last at home in the World Cup. Jurgen Klinsmann’s team had been the most inept German ‘elftal’ (eleven) in living memory in the run-up to the 2006 tournament, but then surprised the doubters by reaching the semi-final.

 

Now the Mannschaft have reached the EURO 2008 final with a 3-2 win over an arguably better team, nodding heads are attributing their triumph to simply being German, a synonym for depressingly successful.

 

A Protestant work ethic (Colombia’s Achilles Heel), physical force and endeavour (Portugal’s downfall), mental toughness (the Dutch weakness), self-belief (count out the Spaniards), efficient organisation (bye-bye England) and a resolve to keep fighting until the end (Au revoir Les Bleus) in an ‘all for one, one for all’ spirit of teamwork have been in the German genes for so long, their roll of honour comes as no surprise:

Pompey celebrates 69 years Qq Online later

 

 

Portsmouth have finally won a piece of silverware thanks to the inspiration of their two Nigerians, Kanu and Utaka. A full 69 years after their first FA Cup the team coached by Harry Redknapp fulfilled the dreams of their fans by defeating Qq Online Cardiff City at Wembley 1-0. The only goal was scored by Nwankwo Kanu, who took advantage of keeper Enckelman’s blunder after John Utaka’s cross.

Pompey hardly showed their Premiership class against their Championship League rivals, but the result is what finally counts in Portsmouth and in…Croatia!

The Croatian media devoted the FA Cup finals the same amount of space as to their own cup, which saw Dinamo Zagreb smash Hajduk Split by 3-0.

The reason? Niko Kranjcar, of course. The 24-old midfielder has become the first Croat with the most prestigious national cup in the world, a distinction which is certain to increase his appeal among his compatriots.

Internazionale have defended their Italian League title warding off a dangerous Roma assault in the last half hour of the competition.

Both goals came from Zlatan Ibrahimovic in the 62nd and 78th minutes, snatching the title from Roma, who had laid their hands on the trophy when Mirko Vucinic brought them ahead after just eight minutes.
