The 54th annual World Series of Poker is underway

The 54th annual World Series of Poker (WSOP) is officially underway on the Las Vegas Strip inside Horseshoe Las Vegas and Paris Las Vegas. Recognized as the gaming industry’s largest, richest, and most prestigious event in the world, the WSOP is once again raising the stakes. After falling just 110 entries short of “The Main Event” record in 2022, the WSOP is going all in to shatter the record field of 8,773 set in 2006 with a historic 115 bracelet events – 95 live and 20 online – from today through Tuesday, 18 July.

The excitement was palpable on opening day as World Series of Poker Vice President Jack Effel kickstarted the tournament with a ceremonial Shuffle Up and Deal for Event #1: $500 Casino Employees No-Limit Hold’em. As part of opening day programming, the WSOP observed a moment of silence to honor Poker Hall of Fame inductee and two-time WSOP Main Event champion, Doyle Brunson, who passed away earlier this month at the age of 89.

“As we get another WSOP underway, we’re reminded how indebted we are to the colossal impact Doyle had on the WSOP and the game of poker itself,” said Effel. “Doyle was the sport’s biggest ambassador who helped bring poker to the mainstream. He is a legend that we had the honor to work alongside for more than 50 years. We owe so much to Doyle and look forward to setting records this summer as a special tribute to his legacy.”

In true WSOP fashion, this year is already shaping up to be bigger and better than ever before with new and noteworthy events including the debut of the $300 Gladiators of Poker event, the lowest buy-in live event in WSOP history promising a massive $3 million guarantee, and the return of the 2022 favorite $1,000 Buy-In Mystery Millions, guaranteeing a $1 million top bounty. The full 2023 WSOP schedule can be found on

“I look very much forward to working closely with our Board of Directors, the executive management team and all employees to achieve the goals of Kindred”, said Nils Andén. “I re-joined Kindred in 2020 as its Chief Commercial officer, after having had positions within Kindred between 2006 and 2016 as Head of Poker, Head of Established Markets and Chief Marketing Officer for the Unibet brand. I have a strong belief in our organization and the business models that have made this Company so successful and am more confident than ever in Kindred’s potential.”

“I am very pleased with the Board of Directors’ choice of Nils Andén as the interim CEO, guaranteeing a smooth hand over”, says Henrik Tjärnström.

Las Vegas openings and closings

Las Vegas changes the face. Just weeks after announcing Las Vegas baseball was a done deal, and that a new stadium would be built off the Strip near Interstate 15, things have turned once again. Originally, the location of the new Las Vegas baseball stadium was west of Las Vegas Boulevard, across the freeway from the New York-New York Hotel & Casino. In order to build there; however, the team needed to secure $500 million in public funding. That’s a very short amount of time to raise a lot of money.

Fast forward to today as an alternative plan also known as Bally’s Corporation has entered the mix. Bally’s has an agreement to build a $1.5 billion stadium on a portion of land now occupied by the Tropicana Las Vegas, which will be torn down to begin construction. And by doing so, the amount of public financing needed falls to under $400 million.

This property will also contain a new casino, and while it’s not known exactly yet which casino it will be, the smart money is on a Bally’s Las Vegas.

The long awaited (and overdue) Fontainebleau Las Vegas, which has been under construction since 2007, announced that it will open its doors on the north end of the Strip this December. The development company running the project did not give a specific date, but did confirm what it is calling a “global debut” before the end of the year, but after the Formula One Las Vegas Grand Prix in mid-November. The 67-story, $3.7-billion luxury resort will boast over 3,600 rooms as well as world-class restaurants, shops, and nightlife. It will also feature a spa, wellness services, pool experiences, and 550,000 square feet of convention space.

Not to be left out of the conversation, both the Bellagio and Paris Las Vegas are also under renovation at the moment.

The Bellagio just started a $100 million dollar transformation to more than 800 of its rooms and 100 of its suites. The redesign includes living areas, bedrooms and corridors. The first renovated rooms will be available for guests starting in July.

The Paris Las Vegas is also dropping $100 million to transform Jubilee Towers at the Horseshoe Las Vegas into the Versailles Towers at the Paris, which will add over 750 redesigned rooms to that resort. Construction should be completed this fall.

ACMA takes action against illegal 'skins' gambling site

Online gaming company Feral Holdings Limited has been given a formal warning and its CS:GO Roll website has been withdrawn from Australia after the company was found to be providing prohibited interactive gambling services.

An Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA) investigation found CS:GO Roll was providing casino-style online games, which are illegal under the Interactive Gambling Act 2001 if the games are played for money or anything else of value.

CS:GO Roll allowed users to deposit ‘skins’ from popular video game Counter Strike: Global Offensive in exchange for in-game coins that could be used to gamble on casino-style games. Winnings from CS:GO Roll would then be paid out in the form of skins, which could be converted into real money using third-party platforms.

Gaming skins are used to change the look of virtual items or characters and can be won in video games or purchased via third party websites.

ACMA Chair Nerida O’Loughlin said gambling sites must follow Australian gambling laws, even if they use virtual items instead of traditional currency.

“Providing casino-style games online is prohibited in Australia when playing for money or something of value, whether that’s Australian dollars, cryptocurrency or in this case, online gaming skins,” said O’Loughlin. “Skins gambling services are particularly concerning as they tap into a youth market and have the potential to convert gamers into gamblers.”

Feral Holdings has been issued with a formal warning for contravening Australian gambling laws.

The ACMA publishes a register of licensed interactive wagering services so consumers can check the service they are using is legal in Australia.

Information about how consumers can protect themselves from illegal gambling operators is available on the ACMA website.

PokerStars VR launches on PlayStation VR2

PokerStars VR is now live on Sony's next generation virtual reality hardware, PlayStation VR2. The launch marks PokerStars VR's debut on Sony's celebrated virtual reality platforms and will see the VR social casino videogame join a host of blockbuster AAA titles already live and in development.

A brand-new audience of VR players can now hang out with friends in their private luxury suite and win free virtual chips daily, before heading out to the casino floor and a choice of stunning environments.

Here they can meet players from around the world in action-packed games of blackjack and roulette, roll the dice with buddies at the craps table, choose from a dazzling selection of slots, or take on real opponents at cash, Spin & Go, and Sit & Go poker.

PokerStars VR and development partner Lucky VR have taken full advantage of the breath-taking capabilities of the PlayStation VR2 hardware, which is powered by PlayStation 5. Advanced haptic feedback through PlayStation VR2 Sense controllers brings gameplay to new heights by giving players the sensation of interacting with a huge in-game catalogue of props and accessories, while handling chips, dice and cards just like in live games. Real-time face and eye tracking will allow players to study opponents' tells and adds to the community experience as players chat live at the tables. Players will also feel the thrill of going all-in at the poker table with live headset haptic feedback that brings a new dimension to the virtual reality experience.

"Our Sony debut introduces PokerStars VR to a brand-new audience and we've spent months in development making sure it's rewarding social experience,” said James O'Reilly, PokerStars Director of VR & Innovation. “The PlayStation VR2 hardware is astonishing, and Sony have been a great partner in helping us realize its potential. I'm looking forward to welcoming PlayStation VR2 fans to our community over a few hands of poker, and to unveiling more to come from our game."

PokerStars VR is free to download now from the PlayStation Store and free to play, with players awarded free chips every eight hours and free creds used to purchase interactive accessories and apparel in-game. Additional chips and items are available to purchase via the PlayStation Store.

PokerStars VR uses Tox Mod, an AI live chat monitoring tool, to assist its dedicated moderation team. Players also have access to a range of in-game safety tools including the option to take time out from games, set spending limits, issue player reports, and customize the extent of their interaction with others in-game.

PokerStars VR is a free-to-play social casino that does not present an opportunity to win real money. Players must be aged 18 or over to play.

World Series of Poker going for Main Event record

After falling just 110 entries short of “The Main Event” record in 2022, the 54th annual World Series of Poker is going all-in to shatter the record field of 8,773 set in 2006 with its first-ever Main Event Maynia Global Qualification Weekend taking place on 20 and 21 May. Main Event Maynia offers players an unprecedented chance to earn a seat at the Main Event on the Las Vegas Strip at Horseshoe Las Vegas (formerly Bally’s) and Paris Las Vegas, which returns from 3 July to 17 July.

“History is only a few months away and Main Event Maynia is a big part of making sure this is the biggest field in the history of the WSOP,” said World Series of Poker Executive Director Ty Stewart. “The reigning Champion Espen Jorstad earned his Main Event seat by winning a satellite event, so there’s plenty of reason to believe this year’s champion might just be a regional player who wouldn’t otherwise be heading to Vegas. Main Event Maynia is long overdue, and we thank our global network of satellite partners for giving players a chance to take their shot from their own backyard.”

Live poker rooms at Caesars Entertainment destinations and partner casinos on four different continents – including North America, South America, Europe, and Africa – are joining forces to host Guaranteed Seat Satellite “Step” tournaments for Main Event Maynia with $140 buy-ins culminating with a guaranteed Main Event seat, a mega of $1,175 and a travel stipend to Las Vegas. Should the Main Event attendance record be broken, all entrants in the field will be placed into a drawing that awards a non-transferable Main Event buy-in for the next 30 years.

Circa in Las Vegas to debut sports gambling hall of fame

On 11 August, Las Vegas’ Circa Resort & Casino will debut the Sports Gambling Hall of Fame. Located in an enclave within the world’s largest sportsbook, it will honor bookmakers and bettors who have notably transformed the sports gambling industry. Billy Walters, Frank “Lefty” Rosenthal and Roxy Roxborough will be amongst 10 of the names inducted into the inaugural 2023 class, which will take place at a special ceremony during the professional sports betting networking conference, BetBash.

“It’s an honor to have our sportsbook serve as the physical location for the Sports Gambling Hall of Fame,” says Derek Stevens, Circa’s CEO and founder. “At Circa, we are all about recognizing those who have made our city and industry what it is today. We look forward to celebrating these individuals and ensuring that their legacy is cemented.”

This year, the committee will recognize five living inductees, and five will be honored in memoriam. The first three announced inductees include:

- Billy Walters - Known for being the greatest sports bettor of all time. He commands respect from every prominent bookmaker in the world and is known for contributing as a philanthropist to various causes;
- Frank “Lefty” Rosenthal - American professional sports bettor and former Las Vegas casino executive known for blending charisma with customer service to casino patrons. He was portrayed by Robert DeNiro in the popular movie, Casino;
- Roxy Roxborough - Preeminent oddsmaker in the 1980s and 1990s who introduced mathematical formulas and computer models to the industry, as well as revolutionized the technology for updating odds to hundreds of sports books, newspapers and media outlets.

Additional inductees will be announced in the weeks building up to BetBash.

Gadoon “Spanky” Kyrollos, founder of the Sports Gambling Hall of Fame and BetBash, said, “It was a no-brainer to ask Derek if the Sports Gambling Hall of Fame could live in the world’s largest sportsbook – it’s truly the most beautiful and best sportsbook in the world. Most of the time, you have a casino and then you build a sportsbook into it. But at Circa, the casino was built around the sportsbook. Being a sports bettor, it’s such an incredible thing and we love what Derek has done down here. We look forward to having a permanent venue to recognize these accomplishments in our industry.”

Rules and regulations for the Sports Gambling Hall of Fame have been created and voted on by an advisory board consisting of 16 members, all of who have spent much of their lives in the sports gambling industry. Over a rigorous course of the past several months, the board met, discussed and voted on the development of the inaugural class. A 75 percent approval rating is needed for an individual’s induction to pass.

All aboard the bullet train to Las Vegas

This Week in Gambling takes us all aboard the bullet train. Yes, that’s right within a few years folks in California will have the option of riding the rails from The Golden State to Sin City.

State Congressmen from California and Nevada have asked the Federal Government for help with funding on their high-speed rail project between LA and Vegas, which will travel at speeds of nearly 200 miles per hour and get visitors to Sin City within two hours.

When completed the service could take millions of cars off the freeway and keep 400,000 tons of CO2 out of the atmosphere.

Rail operator Brightline West announced late last month that it has struck a deal with the High-Speed Rail Labor Coalition to begin work on the nation’s first high-speed rail project. Brightline West will be installing the tracks right down the Interstate 15 corridor. The all-electric train will connect a station east of Los Angeles to Las Vegas. If all goes according to schedule, riders could be shooting the rails as soon as 2026.

Hard Rock Heals Foundation raises $750,000 to benefit Ukraine War victims

Some of the many victims of the Ukraine War, including injured Ukrainian citizens and their families, may see their lives improve following a record-setting $750,000 raised by Hard Rock Heals Foundation at a recent Ukraine Relief Fund Gala Dinner hosted by former World Champion Heavyweight Boxer Wladimir Klitschko.

Nearly 1,000 guests came together at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Hollywood to raise $750,000, the most money ever raised at a charity event organized by Hard Rock Heals Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization connected to Hard Rock International and Seminole Gaming. The Ukraine Relief Fund Gala was generously underwritten by Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Hollywood, Coca-Cola and hundreds of other companies and individuals.

Seminole Gaming Chief Operating Officer David Hoenemeyer thanked guests from the stage at the event, "from the bottom of my heart for all of you joining us for just a remarkable cause." He then introduced Klitschko and said, "I saw you fight live many times. I respect you as a fighter and most of all, after tonight, as a human being for what you are doing for your country."

Klitschko, who has lived in Hollywood, Fla., but returned to his home in Kyiv at the start of the war, took the podium to recount the struggles faced by hundreds of thousands of his fellow Ukrainians as a result of the war, which has caused unimaginable suffering during its 14 grueling months.

The Olympic Gold Medalist, International Boxing Hall of Fame Inductee and two-time World Champion Heavyweight Boxer, spoke from his heart in thanking the large crowd in attendance at the event.

"Thank you for all the feelings and the empathy that you are giving us in Ukraine," said Klitschko."All the funds that are raised are going to help us in Ukraine to overcome these challenging times."

Live and silent auction items included a pair of track shoes donated by eight-time Olympic Gold Medalist Usain Bolt and a pair of boxing gloves autographed and donated by World Champion Heavyweight Boxer Evander Holyfield, also attended the Ukraine Relief Fund Gala. Holyfield donated a one-hour in-ring boxing lesson as part of the boxing gloves live auction package, which sold at auction for $6,000.

Global sensation punk rock band Gogol Bordello performed its signature "gypsy punk" music. Legendary Gogol Bordello frontman Eugene Hutz (pronounced "Hootz") was born in Ukraine and grew up on the outskirts of Kyiv before immigrating with his parents to the United States when he was 16.

Hutz is an outspoken supporter of his home country and has organized fundraising events that have included performances by his band Gogol Bordello and other celebrated musicians. In a recent interview with the Ukrainian Institute of London, Hutz expressed his perspective on the resolve of the Ukrainian people.

"This is a pretty serious trait of Ukrainians: their resilience and that whole turning frustration into inspiration, and anger into energy and defiance and resistance," he said. "It's a fight of people for their own destiny. Ukrainians are very good at that."
