Drive By casino Shooter Gets 3 Years

Posted by Gareth on: Wednesday, Jul. 23rd 2014 11:08 AM

How drunk is too drunk to be playing at a casino? Recently in the States a punter brought a lawsuit against a casino for allowing him to play and lose a huge amount of money whilst playing drunk at the tables. Over here there doesn’t appear to be any specific legislation or guidance on exactly how much is too much alcohol in a casino.

However recently a Newcastle man made it clear that he had definitely drank over the limit when he returned to Aspers Casino and fired shots from a revolver after having been ejected earlier. Luckily no-one was hurt in the incident, although door staff may have been a bit traumatised after thinking that the assailant was gunning for them.

Ronald Turkington had been ejected from the casino for being obviously drunk, and on the way out he told them ‘he’d be back’. Door staff regularly get this type of threat, however they probably weren’t expecting him to return 15 minutes later in his own car, driving the wrong way up a one way street, stopping outside the casino and firing shots from a revolver.

Seven A Day From Gala Casino

Posted by Kath on: Thursday, Jul. 17th 2014 7:16 AM

It’s said now you should be having 7 fruit and veg a day, not 5 and while that might be difficult to cram in, it won’t be so hard if you do it with cherries and lucky 7s over at Gala Casino.

Blackpool To Get Super Casino?

Posted by Gareth on: Wednesday, Jul. 16th 2014 12:36 PM

Blackpool was initially earmarked for a Super Casino along with several other cities in the UK, but Gordon Brown put the kaibosch on them in 2007. But, Blackpool is trying it’s hand again at grabbing one of those very difficult to obtain licences, only two of which currently exist, both held by Aspers Casinos.

Blackpool is represented in the House of Lords by Lord McNally who is putting across the case that the city actually needs a Super Casino if it is to maintain it’s already slipping crown of Britain’s ultimate seaside entertainment destination. Apparently the resort is not doing that well of late, and a super casino may just be that vital injection to get it back to its former glory.

Online Casinos have become pretty standard now and players love the ability to access games from the comfort of their own homes. If you love to play your favourite games, but haven’t yet tried out the mobile offerings now at many casinos then the summer time is probably the perfect time to do so.

While desktop casino play is fun it’s no draw from the rare glimpses of sunshine we see in the UK.
