“Drove my Chevy to the levee but the levee was dry” Don McLean, American Pie. I live in Bermuda, this curious chunk of rock located in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. It is often confused with being in the Caribbean, but it is 916 miles north by northeast of the Bahamas and just basically sits out in the middle of the Atlantic all by itself. It is between the US and the UK in a geographic sense and in a great many other respects, as well. While Bermuda is a British Overseas Territory...

The season of Summer sport has well and truly begun. With Royal Ascot recently finished, Euro 2016 gathering pace, and Wimbledon to look forward to, Britain’s bookmakers will be in the spotlight, hoping for strong and profitable trading.

Quite a bit of the dialogue has focused on changing consumer demographics and the broader impact of technology on leisure and socialization within environments such as casinos.

While a commissioner with the California Gambling Control Commission, I was on the distribution list for appointments made by the governor for the many boards, commissions, and like organizations throughout the state. And as I reviewed those appointments it was generally the case that there was logic between the background of the individual being appointed and the position for which he or she was being appointed.

Indeed both Ewa Bakun and Christina Thakor Rankin raise valid points in their blog posts last week. And that is exactly why you will see some industry players behave in either described manner.
