Borgata to Host World Poker Competition

/Associated Press/ - ATLANTIC CITY, NJ - Some of the world's best poker players will be battling it out later this month under the bright lights of Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa's theater.

"The state Casino Control Commission on Wednesday approved the casino's request to move the final table of the World Poker Tour's Borgata Poker Open into the 1,000-seat Music Box theater. The poker tournament, which pays $25,000 to the winner, will be held at Borgata from Sept. 17-22.

The casino was required to seek permission from the commission to temporarily use the Music Box as an approved gaming area for the No Limit Hold'em poker finals. The tournaments' other games and the No Limit Hold'em preliminaries will be held in the Borgata's poker room.

"The Borgata Poker Open is one of 12 tournaments that make up the World Poker Tour. The events are televised by the Travel Channel and rank among the cable network's most watched programs, Corbo said. He said the Borgata event is tentatively scheduled to air for the first time in March 2004.



Airline Adds Three Vegas Flights - PHOENIX, AZ- America West Airlines, saying its business-oriented fare structure is creating demand, today said it's adding one flight per day between Las Vegas and St. Louis; Las Vegas and Billings, Mont.; and Las Vegas and Des Moines, Iowa, on Oct. 26, Nov. 26 and Dec. 19, respectively. America West said its Las Vegas hub is benefitting from a business-oriented strategy eliminating the Saturday night stay requirement and with fares it said are up to 70 percent lower than most other major airlines.

Caesars Palace Has Eye on Mall of America - BLOOMINGTON, MN – The owners of Caesars Palace - one of the largest casino operations in the world -- are exploring the against-the-odds possibility of building a Las Vegas-style casino resort at the Mall of America.

"We have had some discussions with a number of people in Minnesota about the development of a Caesars-branded casino at the Mall of America," said Robert Stewart, a spokesman for Park Place Entertainment, the owners of major casinos in Las Vegas and Atlantic City.

The proposal is a long shot. It would require approval from a governor and Legislature that have resisted expansion of gambling in Minnesota. And if state policy-makers opted for expansion, the casino would have to compete with other interests for the right to run new gambling operations. State law now limits casinos to Minnesota's 11 Indian reservations.

New Casino Planned For Scotland - SCOTLAND – A new casino could open in Aberdeen. K enmore Aberdeen has lodged plans to change the lay-out of its proposed £9 million Shiprow development to accommodate a casino.

The firm won planning permission earlier this year for a seven-storey office block, hotel, leisure complex and shops on the site between Shiprow, Virginia Street and Shore Brae.

Now Kenmore wants to add a casino and axe some space earmarked for retail use to make way for a public house.

Kenmore won the go-ahead for its multi-million pound scheme in January, but only after councillors insisted on taking a harbour tour to make sure the scheme would not spoil Aberdeen's skyline. But the casino will need to be approved by the Gaming Board and Aberdeen Licensing Board members before it opens for business.

Kid Rock

Kid Rock will perform at the Rain at The Palms Resort Casino on September 21, 2003.

Detroit's Kid Rock (born Bob Ritchie) appeals to a diverse audience, which is no surprise considering his music is a wildly eclectic mix of styles including rap, metal, Southern rock, hip-hop, blues, country and just about anything else you can think of.

Rock signed to New York-based Jive Records in 1990, releasing his debut album, "Grits Sandwiches for Breakfast." The single "American Bad Ass," was also a hit from the album "History of Rock," a collection of remixed or re-recorded "best of" material, as well as a few
new songs.
