July Slotland Jackpot Win Worth $169,072
July Slotland Jackpot Win Worth $169,072 One of the things about Slotland is that all of their games are tied together into a big progressive jackpot. So even though they might not be the most popular online and mobile casino out there in terms of the quantity of jackpots that they have available, they do have a sizable payout that happens on a regular basis that’s usually in the range of $150,000 to $175,000. This jackpot was hit once again, and it just goes to show that you can become a big winner if you have the right timing at the right site like Slotland. A lucky Canadian player who wishes to remain anonymous hit the progressive at Slotland recently. His payout was worth $169,072, and he was playing the Tikal Treasure slot at the time on their instant play platform. This jackpot hits several times each year, and they have paid out a number of big winners as a result. The most recent winner said he’s been playing with Slotland for about four years, and his session started off with a couple of wins in the $1,000 range that kept him floating along until he took down the biggest payout available. This player said he’ll probably pay down some debt and that he was drawn to Slotland because of how quick they are with deposits, withdrawals and bringing out new games. Michael Hilary is the Slotland casino manager, and he said, “Maybe Slotland’s jackpot never gets to be millions of dollars, but that’s becaue it’s hit so often! We’ve had a lot of jackpot winners who, believe me, were all quite happy to walk away with a couple hundred thousand!” Their jackpots hit so often because every single one of their slots is tied to the same progressive. Not only does this make it one of the largest linked jackpots over multiple titles in the industry, but it also makes it easier for players to choose different games without feeling like they’re missing out on a chance for a bit payday. Slotland is an excellent place to enjoy a nice selection of slots that you won’t find anywhere else. Their proprietary software means that they have a collection of games that aren’t available at other sites, and this is a big change from the software companies who can have dozens of different operators all using the same set of games for players.

Alan Snel – Las Vegas officials to make pitch for MLS team
Alan Snel – Las Vegas officials to make pitch for MLS team Las Vegas officials to make pitch for MLS team 20 November 2014By Alan Snel LAS VEGAS — Las Vegas Mayor Carolyn Goodman and City Manager Betsy Fretwell are joining soccer stadium backer Justin Findlay today to pitch Major League Soccer officials on the merits of the city hosting an MLS team.They will confer with MLS officials in New York City.Goodman is the chief political supporter of the proposed $200 million, 24,000-seat stadium, which would be built in downtown Symphony Park. MLS is expanding from 19 to 24 teams, and there is only one slot left as Las Vegas is competing against Sacramento, Calif., and Minneapolis.Findlay, whose family owns the car dealership chain that bears his name, and Dean Howes, Findlay’s stadium adviser, argue that the Las Vegas market can support an MLS team that would draw an average of 18,000 fans a game for 17 regular season home games.Findlay is partnering 50/50 with The Cordish Company, a Baltimore development company that was given the rights by the city to build a sports venue in downtown.The hang-up is that the City Council and Findlay/Cordish haven’t agreed on a funding package, which has evolved during the past six months.The latest stadium funding proposal calls for the city to contribute $20 million to $25 million for the soccer stadium as part of a package of parks projects of about $50 million.The City Council will meet Dec. 1 to discuss the stadium proposal.

Richard N. Velotta – Uber appears ready to roll in Las Vegas
Richard N. Velotta – Uber appears ready to roll in Las Vegas Uber, the ride-sharing company that thousands of Southern Nevada consumers have been clamoring for — and will likely result in thousands of headaches for transportation regulators and taxi company executives — is nearing its Las Vegas launch.Representatives of the company met with the Las Vegas Review-Journal editorial board on Wednesday to explain details of its service. The company hasn’t disclosed when it would launch or what its fares would be. Normally, the company’s rates are 10 percent to 20 percent below a market’s standard taxi rates.Justin Kintz, Uber’s head of public policy, said in the past 45 days, 50,000 people have opened the Uber app on their smartphones in Southern Nevada, an indication, he said, that the market is prime for the company that refers to itself as a technology company and not a transportation operation.That differentiation is what is confounding the Nevada Transportation Authority and the Nevada Taxicab Authority, which have regulations in place that prohibit an individual from operating ground transportation without a certificate of public convenience and necessity.Uber says it merely connects someone who needs a ride with someone who drives a car and has been vetted by the company to have insurance and a clean law-enforcement record.But a spokeswoman for the state’s Department of Business and Industry, which oversees the Transportation and Taxicab authorities, said drivers contracted by Uber would be treated like any other unlicensed transportation driver — with a citation and an impound order that would cost up to $10,000 per incident to resolve.Kintz and Uber spokeswoman Eva Behrend said the company is working to educate lawmakers and policymakers about the company’s business model but wouldn’t divulge the names of people contacted.The Uber representatives also wouldn’t say how many drivers it would contract with in Southern Nevada, saying it would base the number on supply and demand. They acknowledged that most of their drivers nationwide work part time or use their Uber earnings as supplemental income.Uber’s business model also uses dynamic supply-and-demand pricing, which means standard rates may not be in place during busy periods such as after casino shows, before and after large special events and before and after trade shows. But the Uber app warns customers when dynamic pricing is in effect and users can request a text message when regular pricing returns.That type of pricing flies in the face of taxi regulations that require cabs to collect fares with meters that measure distance and wait time. The Taxicab Authority earlier this week approved an 8 percent rate increase expected to take effect in the next few weeks.Other details from Uber’s meeting with the Review-Journal:■ The company’s app can “black out” certain pickup zones. The company has been meeting with resort companies to determine the best way to provide pick-up points that are convenient to customers. But the technology will be able to head off attempts to stop in the middle of traffic on Las Vegas Boulevard for a pickup.■ In busy New York, Uber strives for its drivers to pick up passengers within five minutes of requesting a ride. The company will try to meet that same standard here.■ Uber recently was approved to serve San Francisco International Airport and the company has worked with airports worldwide to establish ride-share zones so that passengers aren’t in taxi line queues.■ Behrend said the typical Uber customer isn’t just a millennial. She said customers nationwide include senior citizens needing a ride to the doctor’s office or a pharmacy and people who have had too much to drink and need a ride home.■ Uber uses third-party investigators to conduct background checks on its drivers, updating information annually.■ Drivers contracted to use Uber’s platform get 80 percent of the fares, which are paid electronically through the app. Drivers carry no cash. The remaining 20 percent goes to Uber per the company’s licensing agreement with the driver.

Slot Myths Winning at slot machines is dependent on luck, and this is why rumors on how to win are prevalent among slot machine players. These rumors only represent a false hope in a situation where there is nothing anyone can do. Slot machine myths are what sprung from these rumors, usually referring to tactics or false facts on odds and winning. Hence, here are some slot machine myths that we are to expose. Slot Machine Myth 1: If the player right before you has just won the jackpot, then forget about playing that same machine. This slot machine myth is probably one of the most universally-believed myths. People believe that once the machine has given away the jackpot, it will not give away again any sooner. However, this is belief is false. Your chances of winning are measure by odds, and these odds or probabilities are constant in a machine. Theoretically, there is really this possibility that a slot machine can give away its prizes consecutively. You can only forget about playing a particular slot machine if the machine is a progressive one and you are not interested in winning the lower, default prize. Slot Machine Myth 2: Placing hot coins in the machine would increase your odds. This slot machine myth is probably one of the most ridiculous myths. First, slot machines cannot detect temperature, nor will it cause any changes in the odds of the machines. The probability inside a machine is electronically programmed and is constant through time. Changing or increasing your chances of winning would require a reprogram of the slot’s computer chip. Slot Machine Myth 3: You almost won during a previous spin, so you will win at the next attempt. The outcome of the past has no effect with the outcome of the future. As what was said, you cannot assume that your chances have or will increase. This slot machine myth is indeed a myth because, aside from the past having no effect on the future, the chances are equal even in “almost” situations. Slot Machine Myth 4: You will get paid lesser than the usual payout percentage if you use your slot club card. This slot machine myth is based on the assumption that slot club cards consume casino comps, so casinos would want their money back by deducting more from your winnings. However, payback percentages, like probabilities, are stored in computer chips and are not easy to alter. Aside from that, in order to change payback percentages, casino operators would have to reprogram the chips and file a lot of paperwork to the authorities. So you can just imagine the trouble it will take to just “get their money back” from your bestowed comps. Each of these slot machine myths possesses an illogical attribute that should not be believed. Therefore, before making any decisions, take time to study how slot machine works, and remember that there is not surefire way to guarantee your winnings.
