Arkansas group says it raised $1.2M for pro-casino measure – Tampabay.com

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — A group trying to put on the Arkansas ballot a proposal to legalize casinos in four counties says it raised more than $1.2 million last month.

Driving Arkansas Forward reported Monday that it has about $537,000 cash on hand to campaign for its proposed constitutional amendment. The group’s proposal would legalize gambling at a Hot Springs horse track and a West Memphis dog track, where video poker and other electronic games are already offered, as well as legalize casinos in Jefferson and Pope counties.

The secretary of state’s office is reviewing petitions the group submitted earlier this month for the proposal.

The group reported spending $715,711 last month, including $385,728 for advertising.

Most donations came from the Downstream Development Authority of the Quapaw Tribe and Cherokee Nation Businesses LLC.

Marijuana Stocks: Hanging Out in Familiar Territory – Marijuana Stocks (press release) (blog)

We’ve brought attention back to a repeat winner that we’ve covered for the better part of the last 4 years.  Those of you who have been with us for a little while, you will surely remember OXIS International, now trading under the symbol (GTBP) we have once again begun to follow progress in the market. With past numerous examples of frequent breakouts, we once again see (GTBP) in appearing ready to break out.

Each time (GTBP) has pulled back to monthly lows, the market has responded positively and with recent news of the company’s CMO being promoted to CEO and Chairman of the Board, sentiment could continue to remain very positive.

As you can see, (GTBP) has once again begun to break out.  The last time it did this, (GTBP) managed to rally to highs of over $2.70!  Could this be in store once again? Well, as of today, we’ve not only seen (GTBP) rally 20% on an intra-day time frame but over the last 5 trading sessions, (GTBP) has moved up by as much as 53%!  In our strong opinion, this could once again be the first sign of a much longer-term bull run.

We saw it back in June, we saw a “mini-rally” back in May, and we saw a test of the $2.25 level when (GTBP) ran in April. Ultimately it comes down to the fundamentals and with the small-cap biotech segment of the market taking much of the spotlight this year, 2018’s second half could be primed for companies like this to capitalize on the overall market momentum.

This nifty little gaming laptop is perfect if you want to get into PC games, and you can get it for $100 off for … – Business Insider

You can nab yourself a gaming laptop that will serve the casual, budget, and entry-level gamers just fine for under $1,000 on Monday, Amazon Prime Day.

The Asus FX503VM is getting a $100 discount, which bring its price down to $900 versus the $1,000 original price tag. At its original price, I’d say it’s a bit of a stretch in terms of recommendations. But for $100 off, the Asus FX503VM fits the bill.

I compared the Asus FX503VM’s price against similar parts you could buy to build your own gaming desktop, and the laptop’s price tag checks out. All the parts I looked at, including the components, a monitor, the Windows 10 operating system, a case, a keyboard, and mouse would mean that building your own PC with similar specs as the Asus FX503VM could be more expensive.

Asus/Amazon

As I mentioned above, the Asus FX503VM’s specs, including its Intel Core i5 7300HQ, NVidia GTX 1060 (3GB model), and 8GB of RAM would suit casual, budget, and entry-level gamers. Its specs mean you could play games at full-HD 1080p resolution pretty smoothly with decent graphics settings on games. Don’t expect playing games very smoothly at higher resolutions like 1440p, and definitely not at 4K.

Just note that it’s not “VR Ready,” so if you want to use virtual reality headsets like the Oculus Rift or HTC Vive, you’ll need to step up to a laptop with at least an Nvidia GTX 1060 with 6GB compared to the 3GB model in the Asus FX503VM.

And while it’s a “gaming” laptop, it can do everything else any other Windows 10 laptop can do, too. It can run any app you’d normally run on a Windows 10 machine. You can use it as your main computer for browsing the web, streaming videos and

Xbox One S 1 TB With Rare Replay, 229.99: This isn’t the best deal we’ve ever seen on an Xbox One S bundle by a little bit, but it’s far from terrible. Rare Replay is the sort of thing that will mostly appeal to nostalgic gamers or just fans of retro stylings, but it’s great for them: it’s a collection of 30 games from the golden age of Rare, with some excellent titles in the mix. Other than that, it’s hard to go wrong buying either an Xbox One or a PS4 in 2018: the price is right and there are a ton of great games in features. If you don’t have one yet, go for it.

Native American Casinos Eye Japan, Ignore Chief Wahoo At Home – Forbes

Japan’s upper legislative house has passed gaming addiction legislation and begun debate on the Integrated Resort Implementation Bill, the final step for casino legalization in the world’s third largest economy. If the bill passes, the real fun starts, as localities and companies begin jockeying for one of three licenses to construct what will undoubtedly rank among the world’s most expensive and unique casino resorts.

Japanese pachinko moguls Hajime Satomi and Kazuo Okada have been waiting for this moment all of their business lives. Satomi’s Sega Sammy owns 45% of Paradise City, South Korea’s first integrated resorts, opened in April last year in partnership with Korea’s top foreign casino operator Paradise Group at Korea’s international gateway Incheon airport. Universal Entertainment founder Okada, the former Wynn Resorts vice chairman, opened Okada Manila in December 2016, featuring the world’s largest dancing fountain. After ousting Okada from management last year, Universal seemingly has recommitted to the Philippine resort by hiring a new chief operating officer. Many experts believe Japanese companies with IR experience hold valuable cards in the competition for a license.

Conventional wisdom, however, gives the inside track to the global casino big names, starting with Las Vegas Sands and Genting Group, the IR licensees in Singapore, the destination seen as a template for Japan. Caesars Entertainment counts itself among the global giants but isn’t in Macau, so avoids regulatory issues that the junket system there presents.

On the other hand, Macau casino operators believe they have an edge from their experience with mainland Chinese travelers that increasingly dominate global tourism. Lawrence
