Macau: a land of two faces

Macau has been described as Asia’s answer to Las Vegas, but with gambling revenue surging to $45 billion last year (versus Nevada’s $6 billion), it is perhaps more accurate to describe Vegas as America’s answer to Macau . The tiny region on the western side of the Pearl River Delta is a land of contradictions – affluence and destitution, luxury and sleaze, economic growth and ingrained corruption. As China celebrates the Year of the Horse (associated with luck and prosperity), Macau’s casino tourism shows no signs of abating in 2014. This land of two faces stands as the undisputed casino capital of the world, but do foreign observers truly appreciate the eno...

Messi saves Vegas gambler £200,000 on World Cup bet

Gambling on the Argentinian football team to beat Iran in the World Cup seemed like a safe bet until last Saturday – but one Las Vegas gambler can now breathe easy after Lionel Messi’s late goal saved the day. According to a report by ESPN, an anonymous Vegas punter placed two bets amounting to $350,000 (over £200,000) on Argentina, one of the most respected football teams in the world, to beat Iran at the Belo Horizonte stadium in Brazil last Saturday night. Messi to the rescue Close call! Relive Messi’s spectacular stoppage goal against Iran. Despite Argentina being the bookies’ favourite to win, the team struggled to score against Iran and it looked like a 0...

Two men get rich on video poker glitch – then Vegas bites ...

In 2009 two gambling addicts – John Kane from Las Vegas and Andre Nestor from Pittsburgh – discovered a glitch in IGT's “Game King” video poker machines that enabled them to win hundreds of thousands of dollars. Unfortunately for them, the Vegas casinos noticed the pair were winning significantly more than they should have done, and had them arrested and tried for theft and conspiracy to commit fraud. It had been Kane – a confirmed video poker addict who'd already lost thousands of dollars because of his gambling – who'd first noticed the glitch purely by accident. He'd somehow managed to turn a $100 win on a Game King into a $1,000 jackpot, but wasn't sure how he'd done it...

53-year-old man commits suicide in Las Vegas casino

53-year-old John Noble killed himself at the M Resort Spa and Casino in Henderson, Nevada, because, he claimed, the casino took away his right to enjoy the free buffet they'd promised to provide him for life. Casino patrons were understandably horrified at around 5pm on Easter Sunday when Noble walked into the M Resport Spa and Casino, put a gun to his forehead and pulled the trigger. Panic ensued as customers raced from the casino after they'd heard rumours that a man with a gun had been spotted. One person was taken to hospital with an injury as a result of the stampede. One witness, a 21-year-old college student from Los Angeles named Marina Rizk, said she and her friends ha...
