Hotel Empire

 

celebrities stayEven though summer is coming to an end, there is always something fun going on in the celebrity world. This week is famous for being the time when New York Fashion Week is held. The event lasts for five or six days and features runway shows hosted by some of the top designer agencies in the world. Models, actors, actresses, singers and other high rollers visit the event to mingle, check out the latest fashion trends, and party at night. But where do they stay while they are visiting the Big Apple? Let’s take a look.

The Empire Hotel –

With one of the best roof top bars in New York City, the Empire Hotel is an obvious favorite among celebrities visiting the city. It is located in Midtown, which makes it a very short commute to any fashion week events, and it features great suits for celebrities to relax while they are in town. Heidi Klum and Whitney Port are among the celebrities known to favor this hotel.

Gansevoort –

This hotel is located in Park Avenue, giving it a prime real estate spot. Their famous heated pool which, is both indoors and outdoors, makes it a favorite among fashion week guests. After spending the day walking around runways and attending fashion week events, famous guests can take a relaxing dip in the pool at night. Rihanna is known to love staying at this hotel.

Betfair Uses Google Glass to Enhance Betting Experience

Google glass

 

On 5 July, 2014, Betfair became the first betting company to embrace Google Glass on live TV betting slots, thus adopting the latest technology to enhance its business as well as viewers’ experience.

Betfair’s spokesperson Barry Orr wore the glass headset on the British horse racing TV channel At The Races and reported live from Leicester Racecourse with real-time updates. In due course, Google Glass will be used on Betfair’s other TV slots on Sky Sports NewBettings, Channel 4’s Morning Line, and RTE in Ireland

To what end

Google Glass is hardware with features of a smart phone. Just a quick look at the display over the right eye enables the user to access data in the digital world. With the introduction of the product, Betfair aims to present its viewers current updates on many of their televised betting events.

When Barry Orr first used the Glass for a betting event, his access to live feed and updates boosted his event analysis as well. This in turn enhanced the end-user experience. In speaking to the media, Alex Deacon, the company’s Director of Product Innovations, said that the move to adopt wearable technology fit naturally with Betfair’s image of being a tech-savvy enterprise.

Glass is also expected to take Betfair’s coverage of events up by several notches, contributing significantly to audience engagement. Naturally, analyses provided by experts of the online betting exchange are sure to be more sought after than ever before, thanks to the tech upgrade.

Embracing innovation

Betfair has always prided itself in its use of the latest technology. The betting format that it brought forward when it first began commercial operations was an innovative concept in itself. Be it offering televised betting events in new formats or establishing a presence in different countries, the company has always used technology to assist its business operations. It is not shy of or sceptical about the use of new gadgets. If a new tool can help its business grow or add a new dimension to an existing business feature, Betfair has often been the first to take the leap, and bravely so. Consequently, Google Glass is in line with its love for and trust in technological advancements that can benefit the company as well as its viewers.

A New Gamble for a Political Betting Site

sports betting

Tradesports to be the Intrade of Fantasy Sports
Co-founder Ron Bernstein built his site, Intrade.com, as a platform for people to bet on the outcome of politics, the markets, and occasionally entertainment. It was very successful, and most of its users were quite happy with the results of some recent elections. But Mr. Bernstein quickly found out that politics, even betting on politics, is a rough game, and the company was sued multiple times, leading to its shutdown in 2013; it was unable to cover its customers’ deposits.

Now, however, Mr. Bernstein is back with the time-tested business of online sports betting. Tradesports, as it will now be called, will allow people from across the world to buy and sell positions on sports and players; it hopes to become a premier fantasy sports online prediction market, joining the ranks of FanDuel, Fanball, and DraftDay, after a private test period.

With more and more consumers using internet technology to find pursue their passions, the shift from a brick and mortar facility to an online e-commerce driven market is quickly growing, this field of entertainment being no exception.

Because fantasy sports are recognized as a game of skill under the Unlawful Internet Gambling and Enforcement Act of 2006 (UIGEA), the U.S. government cannot restrict the new version of Intrade in the same way they have other online betting sites. Where online sports betting is only legal in three U.S. States (Nevada, Delaware, and New Jersey), Tradesports will be legal in all 50, allowing for a greater user base and better prediction markets. Just to be certain, however, Bernstein will be running the new site from New Jersey.

Fantasy sportsThe stock trading principles that made Intrade such a successful trading platform, though, will still be in place. Tradesports, like Intrade, will consist of markets where traders buy stocks representing events in a game. Players won’t simply bet on whether the Chicago Bulls will win, for instance, but also on the number of layups Taj Gibson will score. The pots would be set in advance and are traded throughout the quarters, after which the players with the highest “stock” value would be awarded the pot.

In this way, Tradesports will allow players to bet without the legal risk. Sites like FanDuel are making a profit in this way; FanDuel looks to pay out $400 million in prizes during 2014, and DraftKings will be paying out more than $200 million. The former raised $18 million in venture capital, while the latter raised $35 million. Tradesports raised enough funds last year to run for roughly 18 months; it’s technically a different site than Intrade, but several Intrade employees will be working there.

A Not-Quite Winner Scores Big in Philadelphia

Harrah's Casino PhiladelphiaFor seven poker players at Harrah’s Philadelphia last Sunday, one man’s unexpected loss led to big winnings for everyone at the table. It was 5:10 PM on Championship Sunday, January 20th, in a tense game of no-limit Texas Hold’em. Anthony Nicodemo of Philadephia, Pennsylvania, laid down Quad Kings. It seemed like a sure win — until David Gallagher of Ridley Park, Pennsylvania, revealed his King High Straight Flush. It was an upset victory, and thanks to the casino’s Bad Beat Jackpot, one that actually paid out better for the second-place hand.

The play fulfilled the conditions of the casino’s Bad Beat Jackpot, and the entire amount of $183,623 hit. Nicodemo, as the one “beaten bad,” took the lion’s share, walking away with $91,811, while Gallagher took $45,905 for his surprise victory. The other five players each netted $9,181 for just being in the right place at the right time. At Harrah’s, merely witnessing an unexpected reversal sometimes pays off.

The Bad Beat Jackpot is something of a novelty jackpot in the world of Texas Hold’em. When a player with a sufficiently good hand (the exact conditions remain a casino secret) is beaten by an even better hand, the jackpot hits. While the chips are distributed normally according to the rules of the game, this special prize follows its own rules. The projected winner who didn’t quite make it takes half the jackpot, the real winner gets a quarter, and the remaining 25% is evenly distributed between the rest of the players. It’s a progressive jackpot, funded by taking $1.00 from each pot in addition to the usual rake, which pays out in its entirety when the hit conditions are met. The jackpot is reset to $100,000 following each win.

Ron Baumann, the Harrah’s Philadelphia Senior Vice President and General Manager, congratulated the players, stating that while 2013 was a particularly lucrative year for players in Bad Beat Jackpot eligible games, having such an early hit in 2014 could signify even bigger wins in the coming year.

Juddmonte Farms’ Superstars Begin Breeding Careers

Juddmonte FarmsThe breeding of horses is as much a guess as it is a science. One of Europe’s top equine operations, Juddmonte Farms, has thrown caution to the wind with the mating of two of it’s greatest champions. The product of this mating is a beautiful filly. The sire is none other than Frankel, one of Juddmonte’s greatest runners. The dam is the superstar mare Midday. Both of these fine equine specimens were trained by the late, legendary, English trainer Henry Cecil.

Here is a listing of the major accomplishments for Frankel and Midday.

Frankel

  • He was a perfect 14-14 winning each race during his career
  • He earned the highest time-form rating ever given with a 143 for his victory in the 2011 Queen Elizabeth II Stakes
  • He was twice voted European Horse of the Year (2011, 2012)
  • Won almost 3.0 million euros during his career
  • He dominated the Classic 2000 Guineas in 2011 as a 3-year-old
  • He is generally regarded as one of the top 2-3 horse of all-time

Midday

  • She was a three time winner of the prestigious Nassau Stakes (only one to achieve this honor)
  • She captured the 2009 Breeders’ Cup Filly & Mare Turf in the United States
  • She earned almost 2.3 million euros during her career
  • She had a record of 23-9-7-3, all against top level competition

For owner/breeder Khalid Abdullah, this pairing has produced one of the most anticipated foals in recent years. This beautiful filly was foaled on Feb. 5 and weighs in at 132 lbs. This filly comes with the highest of expectations. Her sire was a brilliant miler who won races from five furlongs to 1 1/8 miles and the dam was a true stayer winning at distances up to 1 1/4 miles.

In his first season at stud, Frankel covered 133 mares. The Midday filly is the first one to actually hit the ground. For Midday, this is her first foal. The future plans for Midday call for her to be bred back to Frankel in 2014. The racing world would indeed be blessed if Frankel succeeds at stud the way he did on the racetrack.
