It’s rare for a day to pass without something significant happening in the gambling industry. Acquisitions, takeovers, partnerships, sales figures, tech breakthroughs – no matter how hectic the Monday morning or how the Sunday afternoon, you can bet that something significant is happening somewhere in the wagering world.
To illustrate the breadth of our news beat, the past months have seen us cover stories as diverse as the role poker ace Tony Bloom played in resurrecting the fortunes of Brighton and Hove Albion to the problems major betting firms such as Ladbrokes and William Hill have been experiencing in Australia.
We at CasinoUK were also quick to spot that there was a poker angle to United Airlines’ horrific mistreatment of card sharp David Dao – the unfortunate doctor finished third in a World Series of Poker event in Mississippi in 2009. And given how often celebrity and gambling rub shoulders these days, our stories have showcased the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Tiger Woods and Kevin Hart.
Looking ahead, significant stories seem set to break in the US where 2017 is likely to be the year in which the country either fully embraces online betting or rejects it for the foreseeable future. As for on the other side on the Atlantic, Britain’s imminent withdrawal from the European Union has the attention of everyone in the wagering world. Indeed, it’s a story so big that CasinoUK conducted its own in-depth Brexit investigation, asking key industry figures such as Gibraltar Chief Minister Fabian Picardo and the UK Gambling Commission’s Sarah Harrison where they believe Britain is heading.
And as Brexit touches all corners of the gambling world – from licensing and legislation to technology and employment – so does the CasinoUK news page. A new hiring, an unexpected firing, the newest poker millionaire, the latest bankruptcy – all gambling life is here.
