Macau and Las Vegas: Collateral Damage from Trump’s Trade War with China by I Nelson Rose

President Donald Trump has escalated his trade war with China. Last week he announced that he intends to slap tariffs on another $200 billion of imports from China. Stock markets around the world fell dramatically, as did the value of China’s currency, the yuan.

China responded, as it always does, with retaliatory tariffs on American produce and products. The People’s Republic of China understands that the fight is political, not economic. So the PRC is micro-targeting which US companies and regions will be hurt.

Blackjack's Rise And Fall Shows What Drives Customers Away by David G. Schwartz

It’s the card game for intellectuals, mathematicians, and those who like a real chance at beating the house. For years it was obscure, then it was popular, and now it has faded. Blackjack is proof that it’s not really the product itself that matters—it’s what customers can do with it.

The game of blackjack dates to the middle of the 18th century. Like many other gambling pastimes (poker, for one), it originated in France, although Americans gave the game its present form.

Philippines, Resorts World Manila Rebound From Deadly Attack by Muhammad Cohen

Last June, Resorts World Manila suffered a nightmarish attack by a gunman who set fire to the second floor casino area, leaving 36 dead and more than 50 injured before killing himself. The Philippines and its first integrated resort each faced a major reckoning and each took decisive steps to spur recovery. A year on, tourist arrivals and casino revenue have continued to grow, but that doesn’t mean the challenges are over.

The attack highlighted longstanding security concerns for Philippine visitors. In its wake, Travellers International Hotel Group, the joint venture between Lim Kok Thay's Genting Group’s Hong Kong arm and local billionaire Andrew Tan’s Alliance Global Group that owns Resorts World Manila, reached out for help. “We engaged one of the top private security consultants in the world to undertake a full review of our safety and security protocols,” Travellers Chief Operating Officer Stephen Reilly says. “We took their recommendations and put them in place immediately.”

THE TRIFECTA OF SPORTS BETTING, NEW CASINOS, AND ONLINE GAMBLING PROPEL NEW JERSEY GAMING REVENUE TO A WIN BY ROBERT DELLAFAVE

On the backs of two new casino openings, the emergence of sports betting, and another strong performance from online gambling, New Jersey gaming revenue saw a sizeable bump, by far its most significant of 2018 so far.

In June 2018, revenue was up 7.3% year-on-year, from $217.7 million to $233.6 million. And while it would be far too presumptuous to say June’s numbers signal a revival for Atlantic City, they are certainly a welcome sigh of relief for a gaming industry that hasn’t had too many good months since 2006.
