Malaysia’s Genting sees mega hotel widening base

KUALA LUMPUR, July 26 (Reuters) – Malaysia’s Genting group will open the doors on Friday to what it says is Asia’s biggest hotel, launching a venture aimed at reducing reliance on casino revenues but stirring concerns it could hit the softening sector.

Lee Choong Yan, Executive Vice President of Genting subsidiary Resorts World Bhd told Reuters the 3,300-room First World Hotel had not yet stopped growing, with plans to nearly double the number of rooms offered by 2005.

 

“When completed, First World will have 6,300 rooms. It will possibly be the largest hotel in the world,” he said.

 

That would put it ahead of competition such as MGM Mirage’s (MGG) 5,000-plus-room hotels in Las Vegas, Lee said. Asia’s next biggest hotels have less than 2,000 rooms, Genting officials said. Genting Bhd , which is also involved in oil and gas, power generation, paper and packaging, property and plantation, runs Malaysia’s sole casino, a 24-hour hilltop hotel resort in central Pahang state, drawing some 14 million visitors a year from the region, particularly Singapore and Indonesia.

 

The 1.2 billion ringgit ($316 million) First World, which Lee described as a budget three-star facility, began business last December, rolling out new rooms in phases along with a convention centre and entertainment complex.

 

It now accounts for nearly half of the 6,900 rooms available on the sprawling hill-top resort.

 

“We are confident of getting a good UFA return,” Lee said in an interview but declined to give more details on the financials.

 

He said business to date had been brisk, with room occupancy at more than 70 percent since December.

 

Analysts feared that the deluge of new rooms might hit the already softening hotel industry with average occupancy rate of less than 65 percent since the September 11 attack on the United States.

 

Tourist arrivals during the first six months of this year dropped about 12 percent from a year earlier, but Tourism Minister Abdul Kadir Sheikh Fadzir told Reuters the First World Hotel would be good for the industry.

 

“We are still picking up from September 11 and the recession but we need more rooms in this particular place. It is unique and shouldn’t hurt the other hotels in the other areas.”

 

About half of Genting’s visitors are tourists, mostly from the region, but the group wants to win more of the 13 million plus visitors who come to Malaysia each year.

 

DIVERSIFYING

 

The Genting group is headed by rags-to-riches tycoon Lim Goh Tong, who became a hero to other ethnic Chinese when he beat the odds to win the much sought after licence in 1969.

 

The 84-year old casino czar, then a small-time government contractor, impressed Malaysia’s first premier Abdul Rahman by carving a road up a steep, jungly hill to build his Genting Highlands gaming and leisure resort.

 

But the glitzy complex sticks out like a sore thumb in mostly Muslim Malaysia and Genting’s casino licence is renewable annually, exposing it to an increasingly conservative Muslim lobby objecting to its main revenue source.

 

Islam deems gambling a sin and Muslims are banned from casinos. Leaders of the main Islamic opposition party have said they would shut the casino if they were to win power in the state during general elections due by 2004.

 

Last year, Genting pitched for one of three casino licences offered by Macau in a bid to shift some of its gaming business overseas. But it lost to Macau’s own gaming king Stanley Ho and Las Vegas moguls Steve Wynn and Sheldon Adelson.

 

The Macau failure sparked a 10 percent drop in its stock price, but the share has since recovered. Genting closed Friday up 30 cents at 13.70 ringgit.

 

Genting and its 55 percent subsidiary Resorts World said last month they were poised for better results this year following the recovery in the economy and their expansion programmes.

 

Multex Global Estimates’ consensus of 24 brokers forecast a net profit of 711 million ringgit ($187 million) for Genting for financial year ending December, up 57 percent from a year earlier, with earnings per share (EPS) estimated at 100.95 cents.

 

Resorts World net profit is expected to rise 67 percent to 586.70 million ringgit year-on-year.

 

More than 80 percent of Genting’s revenue comes from gaming, though the group is on a diversification push.

 

“I don’t think there will be a time when the hotel business can overtake the casino,” said Mak Hoy Kit, an analyst at KAF Seagroatt & Campbell.

 

“It’s still very much a case of the hotel complementing the casino, not the other way around.”

Ligaz11 Review of Blackjack Autumn

 

 

 

Barry Meadow, horse-racing newsletter publisher and sometimes blackjack card counter, finds himself at a point in his life where he can make a sort of blackjack Odyssey, except with Nevada highways and casinos replacing the Mediterranean Sea. Given this opportunity, he decides to embark on an eight week quest to play blackjack in every casino, hotel, bar, and outhouse in the entire state of Nevada that offers it. His chronicle of this adventure is titled Blackjack Autumn.

 

Much like Stuart Perry’s Las Vegas Blackjack Diary, this book is written as a narrative of the author’s experiences counting cards and playing blackjack over an extended period of time. As with Perry’s work, we hear about the ups and downs, the wins and losses, the good and bad experiences, and the loneliness of being alone in a wilderness of green felt.

 

Of course, there are some significant differences. Perry is trying hard to obtain the maximum edge that he can, he plays at only those casinos that he has previously scouted to have the best games, and he maximizes the amount of time he devotes to his temporary vocation. His narrative emphasizes the mathematics and detail of the game itself. Meadow seems much more interested in the novelty of the experience. Unlike Perry, he doesn’t bother to scout games, and, in fact, he knows he’ll be going to a lot of places with very bad games. Further, he’ll be spending more time driving than gambling during his trip. We hear more about the time Meadow spends away from the table.

 

I’m not sure precisely what it is, but for some reason I got more emotionally involved in Perry’s ups and downs than I did with Meadow’s. I suppose part of the reason for this is that Perry suffered some more protracted downswings than Meadow did. Certainly, we can’t blame Meadow for this, and I’m happy for him that, by my rough estimate, he ended up quite a ways to the right on his expected distribution curve. At the same time, though, I felt Perry’s self-doubt, loneliness, and exhaustion more keenly than I felt his counterpart’s sorrow, although Meadow experienced plenty during his quest.

 

In my opinion, the book works best as a travel guide to the small town casinos of Nevada. The author did a great deal of research to locate some of these places, and he gives the reader a pretty good idea of the flavor of each of his stops. He provides more detail than, for example, Bourie’s excellent Casino Guide. If anyone wanted to recreate Meadow’s experience, they would be foolish not to consult Blackjack Autumn before embarking on such a journey.

 

As a blackjack aficionado, I found this book fascinating, although Meadow’s excessive use of pop-culture similes and metaphors got on my nerves after a while. It’s a better narrative and more compelling story than Las Vegas Blackjack Diary, even though I don’t think it packs as much emotional punch. In general, though, I think you have to be strongly motivated by the ligaz11 gambling experience to feel rewarded by either book, although Blackjack Autumn probably has more appeal for those who are not hard core gamblers. I give it a recommendation, although not monstrously enthusiastic one, for serious blackjack players, gambling aficionados, and those who may want to know what it’s like to play blackjack in Tonopah.

 

Capsule:

This narrative of one man’s quest to beat the game of blackjack in every casino in Nevada is compelling enough and novel enough to overcome some relatively minor shortcomings in the delivery. Those who enjoyed Stuart Perry’s Las Vegas Blackjack Diary will probably also enjoy this book, and, in fact, Blackjack Autumn is probably more compelling for those who are not hard-core blackjack fanatics even though it may not provide quite the same emotional impact.

Player Wins $227k at InterCasino

Jackpot Mania – An Internet-based progressive jackpot worth US$227,653.20 was hit at InterCasino on Thursday, January 29 by a player with the online handle ‘jwhite8’.

While the jackpot was the first $100k+ win of the New Year, 10 were claimed in 2001. In total, more than $5.5 million was awarded on over 17,000 Jackpot Mania wins in 2001 – averaging 47 winners daily.

jwhite8, a long-time InterCasino player, hit the jackpot on Spice Island Stud Poker.

Spice Island offers a Jackpot Mania progressive jackpot, bringing land-based progressive poker worth a minimum $100,000 to the Internet. The casino-favorite can be played in single- or multi-player mode. Unlike other online poker games, Spice Island offers users the option to place a $1.00 side bet that pays out a progressive jackpot to the player who draws the next Royal Flush.

“That $1 won him $227.653.20,” said InterCasino manager Ryan Hartley. “jwhite8 will never play non-progressive poker again.”

Since he started playing at InterCasino in 1996, jwhite8 thought he had seen everything – except a Royal Flush.

“I was totally surprised when I saw the Royal Flush. I had been playing Situs Judi Slot good bit lately as I felt some Flushes were due as indicated by the size of the jackpot. I was hoping to get one, but it was real shocker to win $227,653.20! I have played stud poker quite a bit in casinos and cruise ships since the mid-eighties, but this is very first Royal Flush I have ever had! About time!”

Big winners at InterCasino in 2001 include ‘moosed’ ($176,647.19), ‘flagg04’ ($152,488.36) and ‘stash’ ($111,820.80).

InterCasino was voted “Casino of the Year 2001” by several gaming industry magazines, which was yet another accolade on top of a reputation that has established it as the oldest, largest and most respected casino on the Internet.…

Nakamura gets help on free Qiu Qiu Pkv kicks

Shunsuke Nakamura’s free kicks took his team to the Scottish league title last season.

 

His restarts are always a thing of beauty. But now his secret is out.

 

He practices kicking around a wall of rugby players from Japan’s national team.

That was hard work,’ the Celtic midfielder told Qiu Qiu Pkv reporters after his unusual workout with players averaging 1.95 metres in height. ‘It was the biggest wall I’ve ever seen!

I just wish Nakamura was with a big club, so we could see his magic more often.

 

India’s soccer team to tour Portugal

 

In an attempt to mean something on the international scene, the Indian national team will tour Portugal in July.

 

Indian soccer has been as obscure as that of Guam, maybe this will change something. They certainly have a large population to find some talent.

They will play three games in Portugal, including one against a Premier League side, during an 18-day trip to help boost the team ranked 161st in the world.

After the tour, India will host the ONGC Cup in New Delhi.

 

Something called the U-20 World Cup begins today in the maple syrup-loving country to the north.

 

Is it just me, or are there more recognizable names on the U.S. youth team than the Copa America squad we sent?

 

Michael Bradley. Freddy Adu. Jozy Altidore. Gabe Ferrari.

 

Damn.

 

Hell, those guys could probably do just as well as our best B-team in Venezuela.

 

Needless to say, we all have the greatest of expectations for our youngsters. We so dearly hope that the future is bright and these young stars are for real.

 

Are our prospects really any better than those in the other countries in the world?

 

Probably not. But one win in the competition is better than our over-hyped senior team did in Germany.

 

The U-20 Americans are grouped with Poland, Brazil and South Korea.

 

I won’t pretend to be an expert on the youth teams, but Poland just upset Brazil 1-0.

 

I’m betting that can’t be a good thing for the States.

 

We’ll see how the youngsters do…

 

I couldn’t watch the game. My bar was overcrowded.

 

So I had to resort to ESPN’s gametracker and a trusty live blog over at Soccer by Ives.

 

When I first checked in at halftime, I didn’t believe what I saw… A 1-all tie!

 

It might as well have been a Hanukkah Christmas miracle for all I was concerned.

 

Then as the second half wore on, what we all expected (link=recap) to happen, well, happened.

 

Hernan Crespo (above), who I thought would have a big game as seen in one post below, scored twice and Pablo Aimar and (substitute? who brings one of the best players in the world off the bench?) Carlos Tevez also had goals.

 

The Americans’ lone score came on a penalty kick that was earned and converted by Eddie Johnson.

 

As always, you can find the highlights at Footballocks. If you want to see the build-up to EJ’s penalty, I recommend 101 Great Goals.

 

We all knew this would be a loss; we all knew the U.S. would have to earn results against Paraguay and Columbia to stay alive.

 

The Copa America set-up is the same as the Gold Cup: the top two teams from each group advance, as well as the two best third-place teams.

 

Simply put, four points will likely be enough.

 

So while the miracle-upset dreams were dashed, let’s take it for what it is. A outclassing by one of the best teams in the world.

Rep. Faria looks to sports betting for relief

PROVIDENCE — Central Falls Rep. Joseph Faria isn’t going to challenge the federal government, but if and when the State of New Jersey manages to invalidate Congress’ 1993 decision to ban sports betting in all but four states, he wants Rhode Island to get a piece of the action.

According to Rep. Faria, New Jersey voters are on the verge of challenging the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act of 1993 (PASPA), and he wants his fellow legislators to cash in on legalized sports gambling should they succeed.

Faria said he intends to introduce a bill in the coming week that would earmark the theoretical tax proceeds from legalized sports betting for Rhode Island’s struggling education system.

“How many options do we have to raise considerable revenue without raising taxes,” he wrote in a statement Tuesday, “Sports betting offers us an opportunity to take the money out of the hands of illegal bookmakers and use it to fortify state revenues.”

Faria acknowledged that his plan depends on the success of New Jersey’s legislative attempt to make the legalization of “in-person wagering at casinos (in Atlantic City) on the results of professional sports events,” a referendum question for the next general election.

If the bill passes and Garden State voters say “yes” to sports betting in Atlantic City, there’s still no guarantee the federal courts will see it their way.

If PASPA is struck down by the Supreme Court, however, Bandarq Rep. Faria hopes his fellow lawmakers will “capitalize” on the opportunity to legitimize it, regulate it, place it under the jurisdiction of the Rhode Island Lottery Commission and tax it.

But even if the question of sports betting becomes a state question, there’s nothing to stop Rhode Island’s lawmakers from enacting their own ban, and little reason to believe they wouldn’t do just that.

Rhode Island State Police Maj. Steven O’Donnell, who spent six years undercover as a bookmaker for the Patriarca Crime Family, said he’s learned a lot about the culture of illegal gambling and what it can do to individuals, families and communities.

“You get consumed with it” he said, “you’re always watching the games, trying to double or triple your money. It wasn’t my personal money — it was the state’s money — but I still found myself consumed by it. We can tax it, but the (gambling addicts and their families) will still pay the real price.”

At any rate, said O’Donnell, legitimate sports betting would find the Ocean State particularly inhospitable.

“There’s almost no incentive to go legitimate,” he said.

For his part, Rep. Faria insists he would rather legitimize an imperfect industry than see the state’s educational system fall by the wayside.

“There has always been some kind of illegal gambling, and just like prostitution, it’s been around forever and it’s not going to go away. But we can legalize it, control it.

“The governor made a statement recently that any new revenues from gambling should go to the property tax relief. I say this should go to education.”…

Hull looking to add West Ham to Pkv Poker London victims

 

 

Who would have thought that Hull City would be looking to win their third game in a row against West Ham, let alone that coming off the back of away victories at Arsenal and Tottenham. No doubt about the Tigers being the surprise package of the Pkv Poker season but can they continue their impressive run this weekend?

 

West Ham had made a good start to life under new manager Gianfranco Zola with two wins out of two before suffering a hiccup against Bolton before the international break.The honeymoon period for Zola is over and with the Hammers facing all kind of financial problems perhaps the enormity of the task is beginning to dawn on the little Italian.

 

Hull on the other hand are on the up and up despite being dubbed the ‘new Derby’ before the season started the Tigers have already eclipsed the Rams woeful total. The trip to Humberside for the Hammers is one that Zola wouldn’t have wished for because the levels of confidence at the KC Stadium must be higher than any other Premier League side.

 

From back to front Hull are beginning to develop into a nice little unit with Boaz Myhill in inspirational form, whilst Michael Turner and Andy Dawson have made the step up to the top division with ease. Ian Ashbee is another who has been with the club since they were trawling the lower leagues but now looks like a decent defensive midfielder.

 

Then there is Geovanni, surely one of the steals of the season, after joining Hull on a free transfer from Man City. He has been instrumental in Hull’s last two games, not just because of his two goals either. The Brazilian has that touch of quality that promoted sides need to stay in this division and he certainly has an eye for goal.

 

So based on this assessment you’d think that Hull are red hot favourites in the football betting to heap more misery on the Hammers fans. However I wouldn’t be so sure because a big factor in a good run of form is momentum, something which Hull may have lost with the international break.

 

Things aren’t all bad for West Ham with Hull managing just one victory in their three home games this season, that win coming on the opening day of the season against Fulham. It’s not like West Ham have had a bad season either, despite sacking Alan Curbishley the club still find themselves in the top six with four victories from their first seven games.

 

So with all that in mind I think the best option will be to sit on the fence and go for a draw, with the football odds suggesting that might be the outcome. However if I was forced to make a decision you’d have to back the Tigers to once again upset the odds.

Korea Frustrate Pkv Poker France

 

 

Meeting Kevin Gallacher wasn’t quite the highlight of the evening – especially for the amiable Scot after I told him that I had been present when he had broke his leg on two occasions – but it came close to matching a dull game between France and South Korea in Leipzig.

 

Lunchtime was spent with a group of L’Equipe journalists who were convinced that the team was on its last legs and was about to be put out of its misery. Their pessimistic mood was in marked contrast to that of a group of Swiss sports scribes I had dinner with five days previously, after the Korea-Togo match. Upon witnessing that Korea victory and the subsequent turgid 0-0 draw between their team and France, the writers upgraded their Pkv Poker team’s expected finishing position from second to an unequivocal first.

 

On the afternoon of the game, it was hard to navigate the narrow streets of Leipzig’s historic city centre, filled as they were with people packed taking advantage of the many outside bars and pubs.

 

The Koreans were louder –they almost always are – as they proved in the stadium. The communist built ZentralStadion looked to be mostly blue upon entrance but the sound that could be heard on a warm Saxony evening came from the red section – one that never stopped singing and dancing.

 

S.Korea v France

 

Desperate to avoid more barbs from the likes of L’Equipe, the French started brightly and it was little surprise when Thierry Henry put the team ahead in the ninth minute. On the half-hour it should have been two as Patrick Viera’s header certainly crossed the line before being beaten away by Lee Woon-jae in goal – the ‘keeper has answered his critics with two fine performances so far in Group G.

 

The Taeguk Warriors offered little as an attacking force but improved in the second half as Park Ji-sung was moved into the midfield from the wing. His energy in the middle redressed the balance somewhat, especially as France seemed satisfied with the scoreline as it was. Korea’s attempts to break through the excellent defensive pairing of William Gallas and Lilian Thuram were helped by the introduction of Ahn Jung-hwan with 20 minutes remaining. For the second time in a week, the Lord of the Ring changed the pace of the game and Korea came more and more into it.

 

The equaliser was a fairly shambolic one from a French point of view though the sight of the ball looping over a hitherto unemployed Fabian Barthez was a delicious one from the Korean point of view – one not shared by the obviously furious Gallas who booted the ball to Dresden.

 

There was no doubt which set of fans and players were happier after the game. The Koreans stayed on the pitch to salute their wonderful fans while the French players showed more urgency in leaving the field than they did for most of the second half – a speedy exit matched by their fans. The Koreans stayed to sing and judging by the sounds coming out of Leipzig city centre in the early hours, their numbers were swelled by a number of new Red Devils.

 

The French were disappointed but not overly so, in the mixed zone their players pointed out that they only had to defeat Togo to reach the second round while the Switzerland defeat of the Africans by two goals mean that South Korea also have to win in Hanover on Friday night to be sure of progressing.

 

It should be some night.

Free Gambling Tips – Easy to Learn Situs Slot Blackjack System

 

 

Blackjack actually refers to a specific holding (two cards totalling 21). However, this is also the most common term for the game – also known as 21.

 

You are playing against the dealer at all times. Many people feel that you must play differently depending on where you sit at the table. This is not true. Players sit in a semi-circle around the dealer, but no matter where you sit, you are still playing against the dealer. You owe nothing to the other players – it is your own money you are risking.

 

In Blackjack, the suits of the cards have no significance. Tens, jacks, queens, and kings all count 10. An ace counts 1 or 10 at the player’s option. Cards from 2 to 9 have their face value. Therefore, if you hold a nine and a five, you have 14. A nine and an ace can be either 10 or 20.

 

The simple idea of the game is to get closer to 21 without going over than the dealer does. You are dealt two cards and the dealer is dealt two cards also – one always face up, and one face down. You are then given the option of standing with the cards you have (“stick” or “sticking”) or you may be “hit” and be given another card (“hitting”). You may take as many cards as you wish to, but should you go over 21, you “bust” and the dealer wins automatically. The dealer will not take any cards until all players are through at taking cards. Thus the dealer’s biggest advantage is here. Any players that bust, lose their bet – even if the dealer goes bust.

 

If you stay at 21 or under and have a higher total than the situs slot dealer, you win; if both you and the dealer hold cards equalling the same total, it is a “push” and you stay even (not winning or losing). If the dealer has a higher total without busting, he wins.

 

The pay off if you win is even money (one to one). If you get a “21” or “Blackjack” (21 in two cards) you are paid at a rate of 3 to 2 (bet $10 win $15). If the dealer gets blackjack at the same time, you push – all other players lose.

 

You may take “Insurance” when the dealer’s first card is an ace. After all players and the dealer have two cards, he will ask “Insurance?”. You may bet another 1/2 of your original bet. Payment is 2 to 1 if the dealer does get blackjack.

 

At this point, after each Togel player and the dealer has 2 cards, he will start at the immediate right and see if the player wants a card (a “hit”). If yes, the player scratches the table with his fingers or cards towards himself. If not, he places his cards under his bet or makes a negative movement with his hand. Dealers respond to hand gestures only. If you go over 21 “bust” you turn your cards over (face up) and the dealer takes the cards and your bet. If you stay at 21 or under, the dealer will continue to the next player.

 

As we mentioned, an ace can be counted as a 1 or 11. When you have say an 8 and a 10, you have a “hard” hand. However, an 8 and an ace gives you a “soft” hand. Because you have a soft 19 or a hard 9 if you count the ace as a one.

 

The dealer on the other hand does not get these options. When all players are through, the dealer turns face up his hole card. He must take a card if he has 16 or less. He must stand (in most casinos) on a hard or soft 17.

 

Most players try and guess what the dealer has and look at the other cards on the table before deciding to hit or stand. Most players also never win at Blackjack.

 

At this point, you should understand how the game is played. The following is your best strategy as determined by computer testing:

 

Always hit when you have 11 or less.

 

Always stand with a hard 17 or more.

 

On a hard hand: When the dealer’s up card is from 7 to Ace, draw if you have 12 to 16. When the dealer’s card is 2 to 6, stand on 12 to 16 except if the dealer’s card is a 2 or 3, in which case you would draw.

 

On a soft hand do the following: Always draw to a soft 12. Stand on 18 except when the dealer has a 9 or 10 value card. Stand on 19.

 

In most casinos, you may double down (double your bet) after your first two cards.

 

On a hard hand: Always double with 11, with 10 except if the dealer has a 10 or ace, with 9 against the dealer’s 2 to 6 up card.

 

On a soft hand: With ace 2 to ace 7 double against dealer’s 4, 5, or 6. Also with ace 6 against 2 or 3 and ace 7 against 3.

 

Another play is the splitting of pairs. If your first two cards of the deal are the same value, you may place a bet the same as your original, and play two hands.

 

Always split ace-ace, and 8-8. Never split 10-10, 5-5, or 4-4. Split other pairs only when the dealer’s card is 2 to 6. These rules may seem complicated and difficult. However, after playing at home, this basic strategy will require no concentration.

 

After you have become comfortable with the basic Togel strategy, you may be able to shift the odds in your favor. Although counting card is illegal in some places, simple methods of advanced strategy can be easily employed.

 

When a number (greater than average) of 10’s have been used, more 5 average cards are present and this is an advantage to the dealer. If more 5 value cards have been used, the advantage is in your favor (a slightly larger bet may be in order). Here is a way fo counting high + low cards: Whenever a 2 or 6 appears, count +1. Cards 7, 8, 9 count 0. Count -1 for 10’s and aces. In this manner, there are 5 low cards (+1) and 5 high (-1) cards. If at any time the number obtained is say +5 or more, it is to your advantage to raise your bet. If very few low cards are left, it may even make sense to stand on 15 or 16 against dealer’s high card.

Why do people use Tobacco – Puffazon Amazon of smoke supplies | Largest internet retailer of smoke supplies | Smokeshop supplies delivered like Amazon

 

 

Knowing why a patient uses tobacco helps identify what method will help them quit. Some of the reasons are:

 

Peer pressure- This seems to be one of the first reasons that kids especially start using tobacco. They usually first get it from a friend (or parent!) who urges them to try it and be like the “big kids”. By the time the child goes to the store to try to purchase tobacco, many might have already been using it for several days or even weeks. Some of these kids say they need to display the “ring on their rear” in order to be accepted with some of their peers.
