Casino Reinvestment and Expansion

Under the new paradigm of declining economic conditions across a broad spectrum of consumer spending, casinos face a unique challenge in addressing how they both maintain profitability while also remaining competitive. These factors are further complicated within the commercial gaming sector with increasing tax rates, and within the Indian gaming sector by self imposed contributions to tribal general funds, and/or per capita distributions, in addition to a growing trend in state imposed fees.

Determining how much to “render unto Caesar,” while reserving the requisite funds to maintain market share, grow market penetration and improve profitability, is a daunting task that must be well planned and executed.

It is within this context and the author’s perspective that includes time and grade hands-on experience in the UFABET development and management of these types of investments, that this article relates ways in which to plan and prioritize a casino reinvestment strategy.

Cooked Goose

Although it would seem axiomatic not to cook the goose that lays the golden eggs, it is amazing how little thought is oft times given to its on-going proper care and feeding. With the advent of a new casino, developers/tribal councils, investors & financiers are rightfully anxious to reap the rewards and there is a tendency not to allocate a sufficient amount of the profits towards asset maintenance & enhancement. Thereby begging the question of just how much of the profits should be allocated to reinvestment, and towards what goals.

Inasmuch as each project has its own particular set of circumstances, there are no hard and fast rules. For the most part, many of the major commercial casino operators do not distribute net profits as dividends to their stockholders, but rather reinvest them in improvements to their existing venues while also seeking new locations. Some of these programs are also funded through additional debt instruments and/or equity stock offerings. The lowered tax rates on corporate dividends will likely shift the emphasis of these financing methods, while still maintaining the core business prudence of on-going reinvestment.
Profit Allocation

As a group, and prior to the current economic conditions, the publicly held companies had a net profit ratio (earnings before income taxes & depreciation) that averages 25% of income after deduction of the gross revenue taxes and interest payments. On average, almost two thirds of the remaining profits are utilized for reinvestment and asset replacement.

Casino operations in low gross gaming tax rate jurisdictions are more readily able to reinvest in their properties, thereby further enhancing revenues that will eventually benefit the tax base. New Jersey is a good example, as it mandates certain reinvestment allocations, as a revenue stimulant. Other states, such as Illinois and Indiana with higher effective rates, run the risk of reducing reinvestment that may eventually erode the ability of the casinos to grow market demand penetrations, especially as neighboring states become more competitive. Moreover, effective management can generate higher available profit for reinvestment, stemming from both efficient operations and favorable borrowing & equity offerings.

How a casino enterprise decides to allocate its casino profits is a critical element in determining its long-term viability, and should be an integral aspect of the initial development strategy. While short term loan amortization/debt prepayment programs may at first seem desirable so as to quickly come out from under the obligation, they can also sharply reduce the ability to reinvest/expand on a timely basis. This is also true for any profit distribution, whether to investors or in the case of Indian gaming projects, distributions to a tribe’s general fund for infrastructure/per capita payments.

Moreover, many lenders make the mistake of requiring excessive debt service reserves and place restrictions on reinvestment or further leverage which can seriously limit a given project’s ability to maintain its competitiveness and/or meet available opportunities.

Whereas we are not advocating that all profits be plowed-back into the operation, we are encouraging the consideration of an allocation program that takes into account the “real” costs of maintaining the asset and maximizing its impact.

Patterns in Powerball – Learn to Predict Powerball Numbers

Powerball is an American lottery game sold through lotteries as a shared jackpot pool game. Each participant purchases as ticket. Each player selects five numbers from a set of 59 (white balls) and one number from a set of 39 (the Powerball). Players can either select their numbers on their own or they can elect to have them randomly selected by a machine. At the time of the drawing, five balls are drawn from a machine containing white balls numbered 1 through 59. One red ball is picked from another machine containing red balls numbered 1 through 39; these become the official winning numbers. Tickets which match at least three white balls and/or the red Powerball are winners.

Now that you have basic idea of how the game works, we get back to the original topic: Can you learn the pattern of the numbers? At first, all of this seems random, Right? A double millionaire in this game suggests studying the past outcomes in Powerball game to improve odds of winning in the future. Let’s take this advice (he has won twice!) and study the past of this games to unravel the mystery, this might involve a bit of Statistics so bear with me:

We will look at the 100 Powerball draws in the month of May of 2010. Within the 100 draws of the Powerball, 70 파워볼놀이터 draws did not result in consecutive numbers. This is what one would expect according to statistical analysis. Just like in the tossing of a coin there is 50-50 percent chance of getting a head of tail. Similarly, in Powerball draws there were, one can say that there was 70-30 chance that the draw would not result in consecutive numbers. So, there seem to be some light at the end of the tunnel.

That was all theory. Now let’s see what reality has to say: If you look at the results and look for consecutives, it comes out to the same 70-30 statistical norm. But there is one more occurrence to be mentioned: In the 100 draws there were 26 had two consecutive against the theoretical expectation of 27. So collectively, 96 out of 100 draws were either no consecutives or exactly two consecutives.

So, in 10 weeks, you can expect the winning Powerball number to have no consecutive numbers or only two in 9 times. So the bottom line of all this statistical mumbo jumbo is this: Bet on either,

Software Behind Online Casinos

When you choose to spend your time and money at an online casino, you’re putting your trust in that casino to use software that is fair to players. Of course, any internet casino that doesn’t have a decent payout schedule risks going out of business, because there are so many web casinos where people really do win decent money. But when you go online to gamble, you want to know that the software powering those games you love is legitimate and has been tested and approved as being fair to players. Three of the biggest software providers for top casinos online are Realtime Gaming, Rival Gaming, and Vegas Technology.

Real-time Gaming has been around since 1999, running from Atlanta, USA, and Costa Rica. They quickly developed a reputation with both the industry and with players as being one of the best software providers for web casinos. They are perhaps most well-known for Real Series slots, which are very popular with players. One feature players particularly like with Real Series slots is that they can set it on Auto Play and play automatically. Operators that use UFABET Real-time Gaming software have plenty of freedom as to how they implement the software. They can, for example, choose how high or low they want the payout percentages to be on a game-by-game basis. For players, this may make it a little harder to figure out which operators are the most generous. Win Palace Casino is one of the top Real-time Gaming-powered internet casinos.

Rival Gaming is smaller than some of its competitors, but the software itself has a good reputation for quality. Rival has been opening casinos since 2006, and has rapidly become a favorite with players. Owned by a Cyprus-based company called Black Chip Ltd., all Rival Gaming casinos are licensed in Curacao. DaVinci’s Gold and Cocoa Casino are two popular Rival Gaming Casinos. The interactive slots, or iSlots, are generally the biggest draws at Rival Gaming casinos due to their great graphics and interesting themes. Also, players are able to influence the outcome of bonus rounds, and many find this to be a very attractive feature of Rival Gaming’s iSlots.

Vegas Technology has software for over 100 casino games, but they focus on slots and online slots tournaments. Vegas Technology developed Lucky 7s, the only seven-reel slots game out there. Many of its slots games have American themes (“Red White & Win,” “Independence Day”), and they cater to American players. Daily tournaments are a prominent feature of Vegas Technology casinos, but there are also freeroll tournaments and buy-in tournaments. In addition to slots tournaments, Vegas Technology-based casinos are also big in blackjack and video poker tournaments. Vegas Technology software comes in an instant-play format that’s compatible with Apple computers, which has been another big draw to American players. The software is audited regularly by an independent auditor for average payout percentages and fairness, and this is reassuring to players that they are being treated fairly. VIP Slots Casino and Super Slots Casino are two top online casinos that use Vegas Technology software.
