Announced earlier in the year, the agreement will bring together the companies, extending Eldorado’s reach into 26 land-based properties across 12 states. The combined business will generate annual revenue of more than $2.7bn, as well as adjusted EBITDA of around $697m. Eldorado will acquire the operating assets of seven casinos in six states including the Tropicana Laughlin Hotel and Casino and MontBleu Casino Resort & Spa in Nevada. Other sites covered by the deal include properties in New Jersey and Mississippi, both of which have moved to legalise sports betting in the wake of the Supreme Court ruling on PASPA. Eldorado will operate New Jersey’s Tropicana Casino and Resort (pictured) and the Trop Casino Greenville in Mississippi. Eldorado is working with William Hill on a major initiative that covers its digital and land-based sports betting operations in the US. Ahead of the deal’s completion, Tropicana has already started working with William Hill in New JerseyThe firm will also acquire operating assets at Indiana’s Tropicana Evansville and the Belle of Baton Rouge Casino & Hotel in Louisiana. Neither state has legalised sports betting. Gary Carano, chairman and chief executive of Eldorado, said: “Our acquisition of Tropicana marks a continuation of Eldorado’s successful history of rapid growth through strategic, accretive acquisitions. “Through this combination, we have significantly expanded the scale of our gaming operations, further diversified our geographic reach into new markets – some of which have already adopted sports wagering legislation – and minimised market-specific risk.” Last week, it was confirmed that Carano is to step down as CEO and move into the new role of executive chairman. Thomas Reeg, currently president and chief financial officer at Eldorado, will become CEO from January 1, 2019. Reeg added: “We have identified $40m of synergies that we expect to realise over the next year. “We believe the financing structure for the transaction, which includes a master lease of real estate acquired by GLPI, allows us to maintain financial flexibility for leverage reduction and continued transactional growth as we continue to own the majority of the underlying real estate across our remaining property portfolio.”Image: DrVenkman Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter 2nd October 2018 | By contenteditor Email Address

Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares See all posts by Kirsteen Mackay Forget the National Lottery: I’d get rich and retire early by following Warren Buffett The National Lottery encapsulates a treasure trove of dreams for ordinary British citizens. It answers the get-rich-quick desires of everyone working in mundane conditions. I would even hazard a guess it is one of the most discussed topics during lunch breaks across the UK. This is because everyone loves to daydream about what they would spend their fortune on if they hit the jackpot.What many dreamers fail to realise is that while the odds of winning the lottery are very slim, the odds of becoming rich and retiring early are not so farfetched. By following the tried and tested route to riches set out by billionaire investor Warren Buffett, many shareholders have achieved their dreams and then some. Building your wealth through your own knowledge and hard work, rather than simply a twist of fate, also comes with a sense of pride and accomplishment.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Warren Buffett’s value-investing approachBuffett based his value-investing strategy on that of his mentor, Benjamin Graham. I think some of the investment principles they adhere to are worth considering. Taking a dedicated approach to value-investing has the potential to provide for early retirement.Although volatility is rife in current market conditions, this creates an opportunity to buy high-quality stocks at reasonable valuations. The principle of ensuring a margin of safety comes when you buy a stock priced below its intrinsic value. This means it looks like it has room for significant growth, and thus the ability to provide high return opportunities. But what to buy? Or what to avoid? A company saddled with debt cannot invest in growth. Therefore, it is important to avoid companies with too much debt. Get rich with dividendsReceiving a dividend and reinvesting is how investors get richer. The long-term benefit of this comes from the fact that compound interest can increase returns exponentially. However, this is not so easy in a pandemic-affected world as so many businesses have cancelled their dividends. I imagine those companies that can ride out the crisis will want to restore their dividends as soon as possible. It will be important to them to both attract and keep shareholders. Dividends will return one day and private investors have the luxury the professionals do not…they can wait for that to happen. Overall, if you take a value-investing approach to your portfolio, it is important you take your time and get it right. Try to seek out companies that have previously shown strong performance and that you see achieving that kind of success again. This is not a get-rich-quick strategy that will have you rolling in millions by the end of the month. It is a slow and steady process that can reap substantial rewards for those with patience and dedication. Value-investing is not trading, and once you have bought shares in your chosen companies, you should intend to hold them for a minimum of five years.I would prefer to get rich and retire early by following Warren Buffett’s road map to riches, than from buying a winning lottery ticket. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Kirsteen Mackay | Saturday, 1st August, 2020 I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future.

She said she plans to finish the 5K race in 24 minutes.“Since coming to college I have not been able to participate in races as often as I would like to,” Babin said. “The Zoo Run is unique because the route passes animal exhibits, which is different from a typical road race.”Race day registration begins at 6:30 a.m., the 1K Fun Run starts at 7:30 a.m. and the 5K begins at 8 a.m. after an aerobic warm up.Following the race, participants can enjoy an animal outreach presentation. Elander said they will also be handing out a free zoo admission ticket to either be used that day or any day in 2015.“The presentation will include close encounters with birds, reptiles and small mammals in the zoo’s outreach collection,” she said. “In the presentation, participants will learn interesting animal’s facts and can see these animals up close and personal.”Along with the presentation, the award ceremony will recognize top male and female finishers, top finishers in each age group, as well as the largest teams and school groups. The fastest time from last year was set by Fort Worth resident Jose Mejorada who ran the 5K in 16:36.Team and school group registration is now closed, but individual participants can sign up online for $28 or register at the race for $33. It is $3 extra to run with a timing device.“It’s always fun to see families and groups of friends running together – some dressed up or have their faces painted like animals – supporting the zoo and kicking off their Saturday in a healthy, active way,” Elander said.For more information about the race and how to register visit the Fort Worth Zoo website.

The board is responsible for creating the vision of downtown.The board approved the patio and architectural feature as they were presented, but it voted to allow only one sign with 30-inch letters in height, and requested it be backlit after residents voiced complaints.

Further, the NCB stated that Rajput’s house manager Samuel Miranda and domestic help Dipesh Sawant disclosed that they used to receive drugs on the instructions of Sushant Singh Rajput and on several occasions, Rhea Chakraborty also instructed them.The application further stated :”During statement present respondent Rhea Chakraborty revealed about her involvement in the procurement of drug and financial transaction and also her Instructions to Samuel Miranda, Dipesh Sawant and Showik Chakraborty in this regard.””It is also clear from the statement that the present respondent used to procure drugs for Sushant Singh Rajput for consumption purpose. The present respondent used to manage finance for drug procurement along with Sushant Singh Rajput.”Terming Rhea to be “an active member of drug syndicate connected with drug supplies”, the NCB sought her remand to judicial custody for investigation of offences under offences under Section 8(c), 20(b)(ii), 22, 27 A, 28, 29 of the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances (NDPS) Act, 1985.It stated that the investigation was at a preliminary stage and that Rhea’s statements needed to be verified and that her unknown associates have to be traced.Rhea is accused of abetting the suicide of actor Sushant Singh Rajput, which happened on June 14. The Central Bureau of Investigation is investigating that case on orders of the Supreme Court. Earlier today, the Mumbai police had registered an FIR against the sisters of Sushant Singh Rajput and a Delhi-based doctor on Rhea’s complaint that they hatched a conspiracy to serve banned drugs to Rajput on a false prescription which could lead to chronic anxiety attack resulting in the commission of suicide.Next Story

Bench: “This is an utterly frivolous petition. Tell us how much cost we should impose on you?” “We are dismissing it with Rs 10,000 as cost payable to the legal services authority,” Bansal, during the brief hearing, said that around 50 students have died by suicides in IITs across India in the half decade and requested the court to intervene and direct the Union Education Ministry and IITs to formulate and implement a ‘Student Wellness Program’.In light of this, the lawyer pointed out that a committee headed by the IIT at Kanpur had been formed to look into the cause of suicide by students, but there was no improvement in the rising levels of suicides.Referring to the reply of the Centre, the court observed that authorities were alive and aware of the issue.The plea had sought a direction to 13 IITs to “forthwith plan, design, formulate and effectively implement student health wellness programme focusing on prevention and reduction of suicides within their Institutions as provided under Section 29 and section 115 of the Mental Healthcare Act,2017”.Apropos this, the petition had sought issuance of directions to IITs, for providing aid, support and advice to persons with suicidal thoughts through call centres or helplines at institute level.Next Story

The fraudster also persuaded the woman to give him other personal details so he could obtain further money from her.In total, the woman, who wishes to remain anonymous, lost just over £20,500. Enquiries are continuing to establish what, if any of this money, can be recovered.Chief Superintendent Simon Walls said: “No matter how big or small the amount of money is that a victim loses, every loss is felt by those targeted. However, this scam, where a victim has been swindled out of a significant amount of money, shows why it’s so important for people to be vigilant. This woman trusted this man who unfortunately was only after one thing – her money. That is devastating for her.”If anything, this is a stark reminder of why it is so important for families to have conversations with their loved ones about scams.”Chief Superintendent Walls added: “We continue to receive reports of fraud on a regular basis, for example, as recently as Tuesday (15th October) we had a report of a person being contacted by people claiming to represent HMRC and telling them they owed money. Thankfully no money was lost.“When it comes to scams, our message is simple – never ever disclose your personal or banking details to anyone over the phone or online, no matter how convincing they sound to you.”Never disclose them to any unauthorised person or allow anyone access to them via your computer.“If you are concerned by unsolicited calls, emails or letters then please report it to Action Fraud via their website www.actionfraud.police.uk or by phoning 0300 123 2040, or call police on the non-emergency number 101.” Nine til Noon Show – Listen back to Monday’s Programme Previous articleMotorist clocked speeding at 223km/h in South DonegalNext articleGovernment failing to tackle child homelessness – Doherty News Highland Twitter Loganair’s new Derry – Liverpool air service takes off from CODA
