Caesars Interactive Entertainment has surpassed PokerStars and Borgata to grab the leadership in the New Jersey online poker market.

PokerStars had been ranked the leader in the revenue ratings since it started out in the state in April 2016. This is the first time it lost the position.

This is also the first time Caesars has overtaken its rivals in terms of revenue since New Jersey legalised online gaming around five years ago.

The OnlinePokerReport.com website has cited New Jersey joining the Multi State Internet Gaming Association (MSIGA) as the main reason behind Caesars’ rise up the rankings.

Delaware and Nevada had been sharing poker liquidity since 2015, but New Jersey also recently entered the MSIGA.

In addition to its activities in New Jersey, Caesars is the sole operator of online poker in both Delaware and Nevada, thus making it the sole beneficiary of the interstate poker setup.

Police cracks down illegal gambling businesses in San Jose

Police cracks down illegal gambling businesses in San Jose
Reading Time: 2 minutes

The San Jose police have arrested five persons and seised 64 video gaming machines and about $355,000 in cash in their latest crack down of illegal gambling racket.

Over the past few months, San Jose police and other law enforcement agencies have intensified their efforts to curb illegal gambling activities. The latest culprits were a store front presenting itself as a computer repair business and another shop seemingly functioning as a hair and nail salon.

“When you get inside these businesses and get past the partitions, they are full-blown gambling operations,” Messier said.

Over the past year, San Jose has experienced an increase in crime surrounding businesses that house illegal gaming operations, police said. The most recent crackdown was a response to complaints from residents and businesses and to a series of calls for service ranging from quality of life issues to violent crimes such as robberies and assaults connected to them.

Police said many of the businesses targeted “have had a particularly adverse impact on San Jose’s Vietnamese community.”

The most recent sweep happened last week when officers from the California Department of Justice served search warrants in the 900 block of Story Road and the 2000 block of Million Court, and a penal code inspection in the 2000 block of Monterey Road.

The Department of Justice Bureau of Gambling Control seised 13 illegal gambling devices and $280,566.00 in cash, which police believe to be proceeds from the games. Those cases remain under active investigation, and the Santa Clara County District Attorney’s Office is still evaluating charges, Messier said.

Earlier this year, San Jose police targeted five businesses in various locations across the city, including the 2100 block of Morrill Avenue, the 100 Block of Senter Road, the 1700 block of McKee Road, the 90th block of N.14th Street and the 2600 block of Cropley Avenue.

At those locations, 51 gambling machines, about $75,000 in cash was seised and five business owners and employees were arrested on suspicion of possession of illegal gambling machines and other gambling-related offenses.

Similarly, a bespoke trading strategy and non-pooled risk management powered by unrivalled levels of automation will allow Golden Nugget Casinos to offer unique pricing for all US sports.

As the undisputed pacesetter in the in-play arena, SBTech’s live offering, especially in US sports, will reinforce the long-term success of Golden Nugget’s sportsbooks, with the industry’s widest range of events and markets and groundbreaking new mobile-first features such as Pulse Bet (patent pending) and Action Betting expected to boost in-play turnover from key demographics.

SBTech CEO Richard Carter said: “I’m very pleased to confirm our latest strategic partnership with a major US operator. Golden Nugget fully shares our vision of leveraging the power of innovation to achieve sports betting success, and as the US market matures, I’m confident of the potential for further collaboration in multiple jurisdictions.”

Reading Time: 2 minutes

VizExplorer, a leading provider of operational intelligence solutions for casinos, announced the execution of a new license agreement to deploy its floorViz™ and campaignViz™ solutions at Camel Rock Casino, operated by the Pueblo of Tesuque.

The New Mexico-based casino exists in a highly competitive market with several other gaming properties nearby. To mitigate the competition, the Tesuque Pueblo tribe announced last year its plans to build a replacement casino on tribal land near the Santa Fe Opera.

Seeking to secure its player base and optimize revenues at the new casino, Camel Rock selected VizExplorer to uncover insights it needs to make informed, profitable business decisions going forward. Using VizExplorer’s floorViz, the team will determine which games to keep, which new games to invest in, and where to place them on the new gaming floor. The marketing team will employ campaignViz to evaluate and properly incentivize players during the transition to the new casino, and determine an effective player reinvestment strategy.

“We are eager to get up and running with VizExplorer and trust that the information and insights their solutions offer will help us improve our slot floor, increase visits and encourage more play among our guests,” says Michael Beach, Camel Rock Casino’s Director of Marketing.

“We’re thrilled that Camel Rock chose VizExplorer solutions. The choice signals a commitment to using technology to derive valuable insights to improve operational efficiency, which is key to winning in a competitive casino landscape,” said Kyle Gryzanoski, VizExplorer’s VP of Sales – Western Region.

Camel Rock Casino joins more than 50 other tribal casinos currently using the VizExplorer platform. The agreement was handled by VizExplorer reseller Game Changing Technologies, a provider of licensing and consulting services to companies doing business in the casino industry.
