Caesars Entertainment looking like the Roman Empire

Earlier this week Howard Stutz of the Las Vegas Review-Journal ran a column indicating that Caesars Entertainment had sold four of its casino properties to one of its subsidiary companies, Caesars Growth Partners. The move has many people wondering if the restructuring is Caesars way of preparing for a bankruptcy filing down the road or if it’s just creative accounting to keep the company afloat and far away from bankruptcy court. While a bankruptcy filing, and even the talk of bankruptcy for a company with an estimated value of over $20 billion that is the owner of the most recognizable brand in poker, the World Series of Poker, may come as a shock to the average person—considering that if you live in the United States there is a good chance you are within driving distance of a Caesars property—for followers of the industry it has been a matter of “when” not “if” Caesars will undergo a restructuring with a possible Chapter 11 filing. The sale According to Howard Stutz, “Caesars Entertainment will transfer ownership of Bally’s Las Vegas, The Quad, the under-construction Cromwell, and Harrah’s New Orleans to Caesars Growth Partners for $2.2 billion.” Caesars Growth Partners will also take on over $400 million in debt and obligations. The sale of the four properties saw Caesars stock prices dip slightly, $.39 a share, but shares are still selling at over $25 a piece. Investors and analysts were skeptical that the sale would help either company in the long-run, and the move seems to be more of a short-term band aid by infusing Caesars Entertainment with some operating capital. In the LVRJ article Moody’s felt the sale “is likely the first in a series of steps to address (the company’s) unsustainable capital structure.” Needless to say the company’s financial sheets don’t exactly instill many people with confidence that Caesars can dig itself out if its hole. Don’t misunderstand what a Chapter 11 filing would mean A lot of people hear the world bankruptcy and immediately think of seized property, auctions, and shuttered doors. But don’t think that Caesars and its properties are just going to be auctioned off if the company files for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection. Chapter 11 allows the business to continue operating, under court supervision, while it restructures its debts. While I’m definitely not an expert in bankruptcy law, my understanding of the situation is that by selling the four properties to their subsidiary, Caesars has effectively removed these properties from any restructuring by the court—which could force Caesars to liquidate certain assets to meet its debt obligations. Caesars problems are their own doing Caesars is a very fitting name for a gaming company whose empire stretches far and wide, and while I don’t expect the company’s downfall to come at the hands of an insurrection during the Ides of March as befell the historical Caesar, their end may be caused by the same failings that brought about the decline of the Roman Empire, namely being spread too thin. When gaming was booming, Caesars / Harrah’s was very active in acquiring properties in the run-up to the financial meltdown, and just before the economy took a turn for the worse the company went private. So yes, external factors (the economic collapse of 2008) exacerbated Caesars problems, but the company’s business plan shoulders the brunt of the blame. With the numerous purchases and takeovers of rivals, the company may hold some $20-something billion in assets, but Caesars has also racked up an unbelievable $20-something billion of debt, and now owns a number of properties worth a fraction of what Caesars paid for them prior to the real estate bubble bursting. Caesars future While they are in a tough spot at the moment, it would be extremely premature to write Caesars off. Here is why:
Caesars is the only casino operating a relevant online gambling site in both Nevada and New Jersey, and the company has been at the forefront of the online gaming industry.
Caesars is also the most prominent company in Atlantic City gambling, owning four of the 11 casinos in the city, and owning the now-closed Atlantic Club property.
Caesars is also the only major casino corporation with properties in multiple states from Iowa, to Mississippi, to Missouri, to Louisiana, to Ohio. Having a presence in so many states should make Caesars path to interstate online gambling much easier than their competitors. Basically, Caesars is primed to be a leader in the online gambling market in the US, and if that’s where the company sees the future of industry (which is an arguable point) than they have positioned themselves perfectly.

UP Signs Deal with Peppermill, Launches “Strip Magic” Web Series, and More

Ultimate Poker has been very busy in Nevada over the past week, as the nation’s first licensed online poker room inked a deal that will bring five new casinos under the Ultimate Poker umbrella; announced a new $25 freeplay offer available to all new players at the site; and launched a new web series starring UP Pro and brand ambassador Antonio “The Magician’ Esfandiari. So, if you haven’t been keeping up with the latest goings on at Ultimate Poker here is what you’ve missed. UP’s deal with Peppermill At the tail end of last week Ultimate Poker announced it had added Peppermill Resort Spa Casino in Reno, Nevada to the UP brand, along with the company’s four other casino properties in northern Nevada, the Western Village Inn and Casino in Sparks, Nevada and the Rainbow Hotel Casino, Peppermill Hotel Casino and Montego Bay Casino all located in Wendover, Nevada. While the deal isn’t exactly in the earth shattering category—Peppermill and it’s four other casino properties will be something more akin to affiliate sites of Ultimate Poker and not skins for the online poker room—it should be quite beneficial to Ultimate Poker on two separate fronts. First, Ultimate Poker can now use Peppermill’s extensive player list databases to market directly to a whole new group of players. Secondly, with all of the payment processing issues US players are currently facing the addition of the five Peppermill properties gives Ultimate Poker five new locations throughout Nevada where players can deposit and withdraw funds from their UP accounts. This is especially helpful considering the Peppermill properties are in Reno, Sparks, and Wendover, as Station Casinos (the owners of Ultimate Poker) already have the Las Vegas area covered. The deal still needs the approval of Nevada regulators, but there is nothing out of the ordinary or controversial that is likely to prevent it from being finalized. For more information on the deal you can read Howard Stutz’s excellent column. Ultimate Poker’s new $25 Freeplay offer Ultimate Poker is looking for new players and they are rewarding prospective customers with a free $25 to get them started. This offer is available to all first-time players at the online poker site, and does not require the player to make a deposit of any kind. As the Ultimate Poker website states: Strip Magic with Antonio Ultimate Poker’s chief spokesmen and best known sponsored pro is Antonio “The Magician” Esfandiari, and if you’re wondering how Antonio got his nickname it wasn’t because he could make his opponent’s chips disappear and reappear in his own stack (although he is pretty proficient at that as well). No, Antonio got his nickname because in his pre-poker days he was a budding magician and judging by the first installment of the Strip Magic web series released by Ultimate Poker he has been keeping up with his sleight of hand tricks. The videos not only show Antonio performing impromptu street magic on the Las Vegas Strip, but also delve into his background, including his time as a magician and how he worked his way up through the poker ranks. All in all, it’s a very well done video. At two and a half minutes it’s not so long as to be unwatchable and just long enough to leave you thirsting for more episodes. “Filming street magic takes me back to a special time in my life,” remarked Ultimate Poker Brand Ambassador and magician Antonio Esfandiari. “I was a kid with a dream to be the next David Copperfield. That is all I cared about until I discovered poker. To succeed at poker and go back to magic as a hobby on the streets of Las Vegas was very fun for me.” For more episodes of Strip Magic and to see UP’s other YouTube clips you can visit their YouTube page at youtube.com/ultimatepoker.

Nevada Online Poker Review March 13, 2014: Potential for 6 Poker Sites

As we patiently await the first batch of iGaming revenue numbers from the state of Nevada (which should be coming in the very near future) let’s see what else is going in the Nevada online poker market. This week we’ve got several interesting stories to cover including some perspective from 888 CEO Brian Mattingley on the interstate online poker deal between Nevada and Delaware. We’ll also discuss how Locaid will play an integral part in the interstate compact with the addition of its player verification and geolocation services to the two states. We’ll also take a look at the potential overcrowding on the horizon for Nevada, bring you the results of the latest weekly tournaments, take a look at traffic trends, and see what story is making the rounds at the Nevada rumor mill. 888’s Mattingley discusses interstate deal 888 CEO Brian Mattingley has been a very busy man when it comes to the emerging US poker market, and his company will likely be the biggest beneficiary of the new deal that will see Delaware and Nevada combine their player pools. 888 is the only operator in Delaware, where they have a monopoly, and already boasts one product in Nevada (WSOP.com) and are likely to launch several others this year. 888 is also very active in New Jersey as well—as I said, a very busy man. Mattingley spoke about the new interstate compact with NorthJersey.com’s John Brennan and made some interesting comments; perhaps the most notable being that it’s not out of the realm of possibility that different companies (such as Ultimate Poker in Nevada and 888 in Delaware) could pool players. While this is unlikely to be the case as software compatibility issues would surely arise, it shows how forward thinking many people are being in the burgeoning US industry. Locaid teaming up with NV and DE In other interstate online poker news, iGamingBusiness.com is reporting that Locaid has been selected to handle the geolocation duties for the new interstate online agreement between Nevada and Delaware. The President and CEO of Locaid, Rip Gerber issued the following statement on his company being selected to handle the landmark duty, saying, Potential for 6 online operators in 2014 Nevada’s online poker market could become a wee bit crowded this year, as there is potentially three more operators looking to launch, which would bring the total number of online poker sites in the state up to six. This was first reported by Chris Grove at OnlinePokerReport.com and was somewhat corroborated at Tuesday’s Massachusetts Internet Gambling Panel when Jim Barbee of the Nevada Gaming Control Board explained that 888’s WSOP.com online poker room is nearly finished with its field trial, which is expected to conclude at the end of March, and when they are officially approved they will be permitted to start launching some of the other poker sites along with their Nevada partners—most notably TI and Wynn. Weekly Guaranteed Tournaments in Nevada WSOP.com Sunday $15K Guaranteed 91 players registered for this week’s tournament, creating a prize-pool of $18,200.

It was Ultimate Poker that accounted for the gaining, as the site’s average traffic rose from 70 to 80 players. WSOP.com still has the lion’s share of the traffic with 120 players on average, while Real Gaming is struggling to gain any traction with average traffic of 0, and peak traffic of 2 players.

Nevada Online Poker Review February 10, 2014

There is a lot to cover in this week’s look around the licensed Nevada online poker market, from WSOP.com’s online satellite schedule to the World Series of Poker, to a new poker variant that will soon be available on Ultimate Poker. We’ll detail both of these stories plus take a look at the results from the Sunday Majors in Nevada, breakdown the latest traffic numbers in the state, and fill you in on the latest gossip on who might be joining UP and WSOP.com in 2014. The WSOP.com Scoop: World Series of Poker satellites now running Nevada online poker players can now find a robust World Series of Poker Main Event satellite schedule at WSOP.com, which I guess is not all that surprising when you think about it. Every Saturday WSOP.com will be hosting a $215 buy-in satellite where at least one Main Event seat will be up for grabs, and on July 5th the site will host what it is calling the WSOP 25 Seat Main Event Scramble, where at least 25 seats to the Main Event will be given away. You can find more details about WSOP.com’s satellites to the WSOP Main Event as well as information on how you can qualify for these satellites for as little as $1 here. The best guesses at this point have WSOP.com in Nevada sending at least 50 players to the WSOP Main Event via online satellites, and if WSOP.com in New Jersey can do the same (they will probably send close to double the number Nevada does considering the larger player pool) there will be at least 100 US poker players in the Main Event courtesy of legal online poker in the United States. The Ultimate Poker Scoop: Two Street Holdem In the coming days Ultimate Poker will unveil its latest innovation, a new poker format called Two Street Holdem. Two Street Holdem is expected to debut in test/beta form on February 14th (Valentine’s Day) from 7 PM to 11 PM, and on February 15th and 16th from 1 PM to 5 PM. A special invite only testing period is set to take place on February 10th. www.USPoker.com’s John Mehaffey will be in attendance and you can expect a write-up sometime on the 11th at the site. As the name implies, the game will feature only two betting rounds, one preflop, followed by a second and final betting round after all five community cards are dealt. The game should create some very loose pre-flop play for two reasons:
Two Street Holdem will feature larger blinds and antes
With 72% of your cards revealed on the flop only the very worst hands become unplayable The game’s creator, Chris Danek gives a complete rundown of it in this blog post at Ultimate Poker. Weekly Guaranteed Tournaments in Nevada WSOP.com Sunday $15K Guaranteed WSOP.com’s biggest tournament of the week, the $215 buy-in, $15k Guaranteed easily eclipsed its guarantee, with the final prize-pool topping off at over $20,000 thanks to the 103 entries. Here is a look at the final table payouts from the tournament:
Butters – $5,768.00
ValueTown – $3,337.80
BeTheLight – $1,915.80
Kudos88 – $1,503.80
Legume – $1,297.80
R8RH8R – $1,091.80
mnbass1 – $865.20
GrnSmoothie – $576.80
Mikelos – $432.60 A pair of $10K Guarantee tournaments at Ultimate Poker Meanwhile, at Ultimate Poker, the site hosted a pair of $10k guaranteed tournaments with a $100 buy-in and rebuys and add-ons available. Both tournaments just squeaked past their guarantees, but it was the second of the two that would be the more interesting due to the big names at the final table. The final table of the tournament featured Dan O’Brien, former November Niner Phil “USCphildo” Collins, and WSOP bracelet winner Brent “bhanks11” Hanks. Here is how they fared at the final table:
juantoo3fore – $2,539.24
Rprops – $1,751.20
Dan OBrien – $1,313.40
AB26 – $875.60
USCphildo – $700.48
maddogjim – $525.36
M. Kampmann – $437.80
CtrlAltDel – $350.24
BHanks11 – $262.68 Traffic trends in Nevada Total traffic in Nevada was fairly static this week, with Ultimate Poker and WSOP.com combining for an average of roughly 200 cash-game players according to www.pokerscout.com. After a slight uptick Ultimate Poker Nevada is once again losing ground to WSOP.com which now controls about 60% of the traffic in Nevada. Peak traffic is also stagnant at both sites (which can be seen as good or bad), with WSOP.com peaking somewhere between 240 and 270 players and Ultimate Poker in the 140 to 190 player range. The word on the street The poker world is still waiting for more online poker rooms to join the fray in Nevada, not because the online poker industry can support three rooms (it really can’t based on the traffic numbers I listed above) but to bring some fresh blood into what is becoming a stale environment, with New Jersey stealing the lion’s share of the iGaming headlines. But just who these new players in the market will be is still up in the air. Some companies that have indicated they’d like to launch in 2014 include the Siena Casino and Z4, which hopes to launch their HDPoker Room in 2014; South Point Poker, which at one time had designs on being the first online poker room in the state; and 888, which would become the first site on the All American Poker Network in Nevada.

2014 WSOP Schedule: Online Satellites Featured Prominently

The highly anticipated 2014 World Series of Poker tournament schedule was revealed on Tuesday and this year’s schedule not only featured a number of interesting changes but it also contained something we have never seen before; direct links to online satellites at WSOP.com. As a poker lifer, it’s incredibly exciting to see online and live poker come together in this way, and I was thrilled to find that every event with an online satellite at WSOP.com is clearly marked on the schedule. It would seem that we are truly entering a new age of poker. The 2014 WSOP schedule Before I get into the crux of this column (online satellites at WSOP.com), let’s take a look at some of the key aspects of the schedule itself.
There will be 65 bracelet events at the 2014 World Series of Poker
The $1,500 Millionaire Maker is back with its $1 million guarantee for first place
There will be 10 “Championship” events (not including the Main Event) with $10,000 buy-ins
The $1,000,000 buy-in Big One for One Drop is back after a scheduled one year hiatus
The $1,111 Little One for One Drop will return for the second straight year
The Main Event will feature a $10,000,000 Guarantee for first place
Several scheduling tweaks have been made including expanded late registration Check out the Complete 2014 WSOP Schedule with Online Satellites Read the Official 2014 WSOP Schedule Press Release Why links to online satellites are a game changer Even during the Poker Boom, when the WSOP and online poker had a very strong relationship, the official online schedule of events at the WSOP website never featured links directing players to online satellite tournaments for specific tournaments. But now, thanks to legislation in Nevada, Delaware, and New Jersey we have entered unchartered waters in what is possible between live and online poker, and getting a glimpse at the mutually beneficial relationship the two industries can form, and how a company like Caesars can play one off the other. It should be pointed out that these online satellites are currently only available in Nevada and New Jersey, but think about the future potential for a moment? Imagine a scenario where there is legal online poker in the United States (ok, quit smiling and daydreaming and get back to reading), where the WSOP.com online poker room is available to every aspiring poker player. In this scenario, qualifying for the WSOP Main Event (or some other event on the schedule that tickles your fancy) is now incredibly simple, but more importantly, so is finding where you can qualify: It’s right there on the WSOP schedule! What to expect this year Even though it’s just Nevada and New Jersey offering satellites to the 2014 WSOP, I for one do not think that the number of qualifiers from the WSOP.com website will be negligible. Not only will the two sites combine to send 100-150 players to the WSOP based on their current satellite schedules (which will likely pickup as the WSOP nears) but think about the around the clock satellites WSOP.com can offer in Nevada during the World Series of Poker tournament series? Think about all of those poker players from around the globe in Nevada for weeks on end leading up to the Main Event; all wanting to play in the Main Event, but maybe not in the live satellites for whatever reason –price or simply because they are online players. Well now, there is the WSOP.com online poker room, with around the clock direct entry satellites. You can deposit by going to the casino cage and if you win an entry you can buy-in directly from your WSOP.com account instantaneously, with no hassle and no fuss –it couldn’t be simpler. When all is said and done I wouldn’t be surprised if several hundred participants in the WSOP Main Event won their seat via a WSOP.com online satellite. Maybe somebody named Carol Tournament winner can take home the title and kick start another Golden Age of poker bringing thousands of women into the game? A guy is allowed to dream right?
