AT&T will be the first US carrier for Razer Phone 2, marking the first major carrier agreement for Razer since entering the U.S. mobile market in 2017.

Michael Breslin, Razer Mobile’s Global Head of Sales & Marketing, said: “We at Razer are honored to begin a strategic collaboration with AT&T to grow the mobile esports and gaming market with the flagship power of the Razer Phone 2.”

Distribution at select exclusive AT&T retail and mobile stores commences on November 16, with initial rollout through West Coast AT&T stores equipped with unique Razer displays.

Razer Phone 2 can support AT&T DirecTV streaming with extraordinary performance, featuring high dynamic range (HDR) technology and the industry’s fastest refresh rate, and Dolby® enhanced sound.

GAME ON, TOGETHER

The Razer and AT&T collaboration brings together two industry leaders in gaming and mobility to accelerate the growth of mobile gaming in the United States. The mutual focus is on creating great experiences for mobile gamers by promoting mobile esports successes, integrating home Internet and network capabilities for high-performance gaming, and educating the gaming community about developments in the mobile gaming industry.

Razer and AT&T will co-host events at AT&T retail locations, inviting customers to experience their favorite games on Razer Phone 2.

The first event is slated for November 16 at the AT&T Seattle Lounge and includes a “How to be a Pro Gamer” panel featuring world-class esports competitors and gaming industry luminaries.

RAZER PHONE 2

The Razer Phone 2 is the very definition of flagship performance and true mobile gaming.

It boasts the only true 120 Hz display, resulting in silky-smooth action without any lag or stuttering. Combining the 5.7″ display’s 120Hz framerates with a 50 percent brighter screen than the one in the first Razer Phone, the Razer Phone 2 continues to take the lead in mobile gaming.

The first Razer Phone made history by being able to churn out audio at record levels without distortion. The Razer Phone 2 is even louder and clearer than before, thanks to upgraded hardware and Dolby Atmos.

The Razer Phone 2 offers up to 30 percent more performance than its predecessor, thanks to the combination of the latest components and thermal cooling solutions. The Qualcomm 845 Snapdragon chipset and Adreno 630 graphics processing unit (GPU) blaze through the most demanding apps, their performance enhanced by the Razer vapor chamber cooling system which provides industry-leading thermal cooling.

The Razer Phone 2 improves its imaging capabilities with a new rear dual-camera setup that offers a 12 MP wide-angle lens with optical image stabilization (OIS) and a 12 MP telephoto lens with 2x zoom. Be it fast action or low-light scenes, the Sony IMX sensors are tuned to capture low-noise images with a wide gamut of colors. On the front, the 8 MP camera supports video streaming at full HD resolution, a boon for all live-streaming professionals.

The Razer Phone 2 is now powered by Razer Chroma, the world’s most popular RGB lighting system for gamers. The rear of the phone features the Razer triple-headed snake logo that glows in 16.8 million colors to provide app notifications (such as Facebook comments or WhatsApp messages). Razer Chroma also allows you to customize lighting effects such as Static, Spectrum Cycling and Breathing.

The Razer Phone 2 packs a 4,000 mAH capacity battery for all-day gaming and entertainment needs, and Razer continues to improve battery efficiency.  Wireless charging is now enabled on the Razer Phone 2 with its new glass back. Razer has announced a new wireless charger featuring Chroma.

If you prefer plugging in a USB-C cable, Qualcomm QuickCharge 4+ allows users to charge the phone from a flat battery to 50 percent charge within just 30 minutes.

The Razer Phone 2 has also been tested for IP67 resistance to dust and water.

As the pioneer in PC esports and now mobile esports, Razer continues to work with the largest number of game publishers in the industry to bring about the best gaming experiences.

The Razer Phone 2 has been optimized for today’s hottest mobile titles like “PlayerUnknown Battlegrounds Mobile (PUBG Mobile),” “Rival Crimson x Chaos,” “Marvel Future Fight,” “Guns of Boom,” “RuneScape” and more.

The Razer Phone 2 is the only phone officially certified by Netflix for HDR (high dynamic range) video content and Dolby Surround 5.1 audio content.

Included with the phone are Razer Cortex and Razer Theme Store apps. Razer Cortex will help users organize their games on their phone as well as recommend the latest games optimized for 120 Hz gaming. It will also optimize the Razer Phone 2’s performance for different games, either with easy presets or manual settings.

The Razer Theme Store on the Razer Phone 2 offers exclusive themes and wallpapers featuring today’s top gaming titles. Today gamers can already enjoy themes featuring “Vainglory,” “Arena of Valor,” “Tekken,” “Guns of Boom,” “Gear Club” and “Titan Assault,” and you can soon download “PUBG Mobile” themes.

New Jersey Governor Signs Bill which Allow Golden Nugget to Take NBA Bets

New Jersey Governor Signs Bill which Allow Golden Nugget to Take NBA Bets

New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy has signed a bill which allows the Atlantic City’s Golden Nugget casino to accept bets on most National Basketball Association (NBA) games.

Tilman Fertitta, a billionaire from Texas, is the owner Golden Nugget casino. He also owns the NBA’s Houston Rockets team. When New Jersey lawmakers legalised sports betting last year, a provision in the law banned team owners from placing or accepting bets on any games involving their sport.

“We’re grateful, and appreciative that people eventually realized this was an overreaction. It allows us to compete,” Steve Scheinthal, general counsel for the Golden Nugget’s parent company, Houston-based Landry’s Inc., said.

The ban on all NBA bets cut badly into the Golden Nugget’s New Jersey sports betting business. A gambler wanting to place bets on football at the Golden Nugget had to go somewhere else to bet on basketball, making it much less likely he or she would visit the Golden Nugget at all for sports betting.

“It was like going into a boxing ring with one arm tied behind your back. You just can’t compete that way. It gave everyone a year’s head start on us,” Scheinthal said.

Kentucky AG Andy Beshear Reveals Plan for Casinos, Sports Betting Across State

Andy Beshear, the Democratic candidate of Kentucky gubernatorial election, has unveiled his plan to expand gaming and bring casinos, sports betting, fantasy sports and potentially online poker into the Bluegrass State.

Beshear, the state’s current Attorney General, faces Republican incumbent Gov. Matt Bevin in the November general election. Bevin has spoken out against gaming, especially as an option to increase funding for public pensions.

Beshear’s plan resembles what Illinois officials pushed through in their state earlier this year. While Illinois already had casino gaming, the new law expands the number of casino licenses available and allows sports betting across the state. Illinois plans to use the revenue stream to shore up the state’s infrastructure and fund pensions.

Kentucky is one of the 10 states in the US without a commercial or tribal casino. The border states of Kentucky such as Illinois, Indiana, and Ohio have casinos or racinos located just across the Ohio River near major population centres in Kentucky. Beshear said that the state loses out on $500 million in tax revenue annually to its neighbouring states.

Blackstone Group to Buy Bellagio and MGM Grand

Blackstone Group is going to buy the Bellagio and the MGM Grand, two of the biggest properties owned by MGM Resorts. Blackstone is in talks with MGM Resorts regarding this.

After buying, Blackstone would then lease the property back to MGM Resorts, who would continue to run the day-to-day casino operations.

By selling the property to Blackstone, MGM would free up needed capital to build a $10 billion resort in Japan. Early estimates have MGM receiving roughly $7 billion for the two casino resorts.

Blackstone has made a splash in the gaming market over the last several years. It purchased the Cosmopolitan Las Vegas in 2014 for $1.73 billion and acquired Spain-based Cirsa Gaming Corp in 2018 for $1.8 billion.
