Las Vegas casino boss takes over Echo Entertainment - 12th December Sydney's second casino a step closer - 25th October The New South Wales Government has announced that James Packer's proposal to build a second casino in Sydney has moved to stage 2 of consideration.
Seven weeks after the Government received an unsolicited proposal from James Packer to build a six-star hotel with high roller gaming rooms at Barangaroo, the heads of the Department of Premier and Cabinet and the Treasury have now given the go ahead for Crown to develop a more detailed plan. The Premier Barry O'Farrell says the Government will not allow poker machines in the new development, and he has stressed it is only passed the first hurdle in a three-stage process.
The Opposition supports the proposal on the grounds it will not have poker machines. Its construction means Sydney will become the only state capital with two casinos - it already has Star City. The Premier says any new casino will not be allowed to start operation until because of an exclusivity arrangement with Star Casino.
But if the project is given the go ahead, laws will have to be changed to allow a second casino licence in Sydney. WrestleMania Australian style returned to Sydney on Friday night and the show did not disappoint. Pro wrestling fans young and old got their fix of WWE grapplers.
The WWE marketing and media machine can be attributed to what looked to be a 90 percent full Allphones Arena - making it a crowd of approximately 15, It's unclear how much of the crowd was papered unpaid , but the smart money says it was fans who parted with their hard earned money.
A mixed crowd of both hardcore fans, casual fans and families, who were pretty vocal and hyped up for the show. Naomi was with Brodus, no Cameron. Swagger got some good heat, but Brodus got his hand raised quick. Entertaining and fun, but not a classic wrestling match - nor was it supposed to be. Kids just love Clay. Next was the divas ladies match. We appreciated the effort of the ladies but its safe to say the WWE should raise the bar in the Diva's division.
Maybe bring in a few Japanese lady pro wrestlers as well as snatch some of TNA Wrestling's best also. R-Truth was on fire, both with in-ring skills and the mic, and 'Little Jimmy' was over big time with young and old. The Miz got strong heat. Nice mic work telling everyone he wasn't "awful", but "awesome". AR was surprisingly over. Maybe because he's a pretty strong worker and Australian fans are not overexposed to the WWE product with live shows , like rather spoilt American fans.
Lot's of Wooooo's! Zack Ryder defeated Tensai. Zack Ryder got a huge pop and Tensai got pretty decent heat and reactions. At least Tensai looks like a pro wrestling "monster" - he has the look and size, and moves well for a big man. Younger fans seem to be scared of Tensai and went nuts when Ryder got the win. Santino defeated David Otunga. Decent heat for Otunga. Santino is over in Australia, but not as much as he is in the U.
Keep WWE belts off both these guys They worked the crowd fairly well and Santino is funny, but this was not a classic wrestling match - and it was never expected to be. Passable - just. Stalling by both at first, but the crowd was pretty into it. Established characters can stall for ages with little fan backlash - the way the late Randy "Macho Man" Randy Savage and living legends Hulk Hogan and Ric Flair used to do.
CM Punk worked as a face and was over big time. Tons of fan signs for both and lots of fans bought their t-shirts. Decent match for these guys. After the match Laurinaitis attacked Cena with a chair, but Cena turned around and hit him with an attitude adjustment to finish the show. Overall strong show - especially for an Australian WWE show, which were mixed in the past.
We're giving it 8 out of 10 and it was value for money. Strong rumours Flair will be back within a month or two, so hopefully he makes the next Australian tour. Creative arts for Paltronics by Human Statue Bodyart. Photo by Eva Rinaldi Photography. Today was the 3rd day for the most high profile and successful gaming expo in Australia - the Australasian Gaming Expo, which is being hosted by the Sydney Convention Centre at Darling Harbour. It's gaming, gambling, technology, sales It's a key time for the gaming industry in Australia with all the regulation elements, responsible gambling initiatives and such, and most of the big boys of the industry were on hand to show off their wares, with some exhibitors demonstrating significant creative flair to help showoff their latest and greatest wares.
Our friends at Human Statue Bodyart were back again and they had a couple of body models made up in bodypaint Anastasia as a butterfly and Victoria as a panda - complete with wings and sparkles, for leading gaming brand Paltronics and its latest game 'Jungle Madness'. The expo centre itself is huge - 15, square metres about the size of an Aussie Rules football oval and this provided more than ample opportunity for over slot games on display.
We learned through the grapevine that a trip for 2 to Las Vegas will be won by a lucky visitor on each of the 3 days of the Expo, and this is compliments of the Gaming Technologies Association which owns the event. It's understood the winner of the trip will be named later this afternoon.
It's tipped over 20, people have walked through the games expo thus far, with those in the business being the majority, and no doubt a few punters, checked through the gates but note that the games on display do not accept coins or notes. Well done to everyone associated with the success of the expo and we'll see you there again next year. Experience evenings of the unexpected, perfectly paradoxical and the weird and wonderful, with extravagant entertainment and a creative mix of classic cocktails with progressive and fun elements.
We learned that it was all mixed with a specially concocted range of classic cocktails with a twist, like Cosmopolitan Candy Floss, Toffee Apple Martinis and Long Island Iced Tea snow cones and much, much more. Earlier this eventing the team at Human Statue Bodyart created a Human - Extreme Mermaid which once made up entertained, danced and delighted patrons at Hilton's famous Zeta Bar.
The Coney Island theme was a big hit and mermaid fans will be pleased to hear that yet another mermaid, tipped to be wearing a red number, will be entertaining patrons at the Zeta tomorrow Friday evening. Well done to everyone involved in the mega success of the Coney Island promotion and we're sure the mermaid is just the right bait to keep patrons coming back for more. Websites Hilton Hotel Sydney www. The Supanova pop culture expo has returned to Sydney, Australia, and has warmly embraced the pop culture phenom which is taking place at Olympic Park, Homebush, in Sydney's west.
It's a 3 day pop culture mania bringing together fans, actors, game players, information and tons of merchandise and collectibles. Make no mistake - this is big business, but also lots of fun. It brings out the kid lurking inside all of us, no matter what our age. Witnessing the general public dress up as their favourite hero, heroine or monster was just as much fun as the official exhibitions.
Even our favorite real life superheroes of Australian pro wrestling - AWF Wrestling turned up and put on some very solid chain wrestling and brawling to the delight of the crowd. The wrestlers were also a big favorite with the media and the brawlers got somewhat crowd mobbed with famed actor Verne Troyer Mini-Me from 'Austin Powers' fame joining in the fun and games.
The Christopher Lloyd question and answer session was very entertaining and educational, and was a much sought after attraction for both news media and fans. Lloyd shared stories from his illustrious acting and show business career, much of which has been pop culture included such as 'Back To The Future' franchise, where he portrayed Dr. Emmett Brown. Lloyd even talked about the cult film fav 'Suburban Commando', which also featured pro wrestling living legend, Hulk Hogan not known for great acting , but a very entertaining showman, none the less.
Lloyd told the crowd of plus that he enjoyed working with Hulk and that he was a really nice guy and didn't pretend to be a great actor. One lucky fan asked Lloyd if he could have a "high five", and the actor obliged, which got a nice reaction from the jam packed crowd. Buffy Star also at Supernova Sydney From the popular Hatchet horror movie franchise to spooky shows such as Buffy and Angel, the year-old says she has come to feel comfortable within the genre and loves "a good death scene".
At the age of 16 she auditioned for a supporting role on Joss Whedon's Buffy The Vampire Slayer, a move that would change her life. No one could anticipate how welcomed and received the show was. McNab experienced quite a character turn on Buffy when her superficial character was transformed into a vampire and eventually went on to join the spin-off series Angel. Now that Whedon has found mainstream and box-office success with the hit of the year - 'The Avengers' - McNab says his loyal friends couldn't be happier.
He's just proved to the industry what he can do. Our Hero is no longer Expendable. In a career spanning five decades, Eric Roberts has become recognisable to millions of film and TV fans. Fans of comics and animation know him as the voice of Mongul in the Justice League cartoons.

The Voice enjoyed a media conference at Hordern Pavilion, Moore Park, this morning, with Voice coaches and finalists there to help promote the smash hit TV show, as the finals approach via Channel Nine. The culling of eight singers from The Voice last night has set the stage for a controversial finale Channel Nine's talent comp.
Only one singer per team was permitted to go through and critics and viewers took to Twitter to complain about the final line-up. The ruling meant fan favourites on the same team were culled. Both Leahcar and Percival battled a virus as well as the high-pressure nerves, which told in their limited vocal performances last night. During the show's preamble, Madden likened the semi-final line-up to The X Men: "We all have super powers. No one is better than anyone else. The final performances will be on Sunday, with each contender performing one cover and one original song.
The winner revealed on Monday night, no doubt to massive TV ratings, the likes of which have not been seen by Nine for years, is the inside word. Each contender will perform one cover and one original song. May the best man or woman win, and hopefully its also a win for the Australian entertainment industry. The Voice leaped to 2. That figure based on actual broadcast time - not the preliminary figure of 2.
The program gave Nine a A key result for Nine was Tricky Business's performance into its fifth week. But the actual figures based on broadcast times show the drama starring Gigi Edgley averaged , viewers with its number rocketed by The Voice's over-run as "Team Seal" decided its contestant for Sunday and Monday's finale. Seven News came in second for the night with 1.
The Block continued to build for Nine, up to 1. Revenge continued its awesome run for Seven with 1. Four Corners was up to , viewers, Australian Story , and Media Watch ,, all well up on their averages in the , region. Seven's AFL figures were not yet available for publication. Sydney's Harbour Bridge once again provided the stunning focal point for the city's New Year's Eve fireworks display, with a pyrotechnic rainbow and cascading golden waterfall. Sydneysiders and visitors crowded the foreshore while up to a billion viewers from around the world tuned in for the live broadcast.
Sydney Roosters South Sydney Rabbitohs. G'day punters, journos, high rollers, sports news, entertainment news junkies, politicians, insiders, outsiders Today we probe the situation where a number of Australian sports grounds could soon be named after gaming and gambling companies. Don't laugh, this type of scenario is on the cards, with local gaming brands likely the first to pounce, followed by international powerhouses.
With Australia being in the world's top 10 gambling nations, it shouldn't shock or surprise that we're tipped to soon have a number of sporting arenas and grounds named after gambling and gaming companies, both national and international brands. Yep, money will talk where B. S sometimes walks. James Packer's Betfair is understood to build upon their Betfair Park branding, Europe's PartyGaming is keen, and currently Centrebet looks to be leading the charge, with many insiders saying its a case of when, not if, for the household name brand.
Centrebet already has significant branding, thanks in part to a swag of TV and online adverts, plus who can forget the Centrebet branded part of Network Nine's 'The Footy Show'. We kid you not punters. If the deal goes through, they will make history becoming the first major Australian sporting team to snatch a betting firm as the naming-rights partner for a playing venue.
Horse Racing already has some naming rights deals with tracks and in the mix such as Betfair Park and then you have races named after gambling brands such as the Lasseters Cup, Lasseters known for its hotel - casino up in Australia's top end. The forecast Betfair deal comes as a police continue to probe the NRL gambling scandal that from last season following a number of "irregular" wagers was picked up in the Canterbury Bulldogs VS North Queensland Cowboys match up.
The Panthers, Centrebet and a swag of gambling companies, have rather pissed off the gambling and gaming haters, who continues to get organised into lobby groups. A Media Man spokesperson such "Many people in and out of news media and gaming, the general public, are starting to get really pissed off at the gaming, gambling and sports betting haters. The bible bashers. Who do they think they are trying to push their beliefs onto others. Many Australians just love a punt, and that's the way it is.
Some of the gaming haters have strong ties to church groups and there appears to be some sort of brainwashing system going on. They keep discussing the 'evils of gambling'. I mean, seriously, come on. People know not to over-do it on on the slots, sports events, poker and the like, but the haters keep trying to be the thought police. Gambling companies in Australia have a very high focus on responsible gambling with warnings everywhere.
It's great to see the gambling and gaming industry place so much focus on safe better. The sports stadiums will be great for business, , but no one is forcing anyone to have a bet. It's a personal decision, as it always has been. Back to the first prime target What's up is that the club's contract with the Brisbane financial services company has expired, and negotiations between Panthers, the footy club and Centrebet have been taking place, even prior to Christmas about renaming the stadium.
Other clubs and stadiums have also caught the buzz and are opening chequebooks and crunching the numbers. The first of its kind business agreement between the club and Centrebet is just about a done deal, and ink is expecting to try on contracts sooner rather than later, possibly within a fortnight.
An exciting, if not controversial type of announcement is fully expected by the Panthers in the coming week. Sports and gambling commentators are quick to point out that Penrith already has ties to Centrebet, the gambling brand being lit up across the top of the video screen at the stadium.
This kind of exposure has also been very good for their mobile - hand held device sector.

This kind of exposure has also been very good for their mobile - hand held device sector. Anti-gambling campaigner Senator Nick Xenophon is especially unhappy with the development of the gambling branded sports stadiums in Australia.
He went on recent with:. There was a time when rugby league was all about the game. Now it's all about the odds, and that is ruining the game". Over the last couple of years the NRL and AFL has watered down its laws and regulations relating to clubs' deals and partnerships with gambling - sports betting firms, allowing them to be branded on footy jerseys for a virgin time. Cronulla Sharks have sponsor PokerStars. Yep, it looks like a few clubs and stadiums will be getting their Christmas presents and will have lots to celebrate, while the gambling haters will be spewing in Grinch like fashion.
NRL spokesman John Brady advised he would not comment on individual clubs' sponsorship agreements but maintained there was no concern about the prospect of gambling agencies assuming naming rights for the game's venues, at least from his take on the situation. As such there are a number of betting sponsorships that are available to clubs in terms of jerseys and other opportunities," Brady said. He advised any and all betting firms involved with the NRL via sponsorship of clubs were made to sign "integrity agreements" to ensure transparency.
The majority of NRL clubs now have corporate deals with betting agencies. Penrith's stadium pending name change has been intertwined we understand by some to the financial problems that have hit the football club's parent body, Panthers Group. Panthers are not afraid to speak on the record about their on and off field performance, which has seen better days.
Ric Simpson, Panthers Group chief exec since last July, said a culture change and "renewal of process" across Panthers clubs had improved their situation. Analysts question that was a PR line or absolute truth. Mind you, we don't blame club for trying to focus on positives. A Media Man spokesperson said "At this stage of the gaming the overseas trend of seeing sports groups and football teams pick up sponsorship and strong branding for gambling, gaming Centrebet might become the Bwin of Australia.
PartyGaming is said to be currently crunching numbers to see if an Australian sports ground deal is viable. They already have a Aussie Millions former champion sponsored by their poker brand and a couple of Aussie poker players signed up, so anything is possible. James Packer's Betfair, a direct competitor of Centrebet is not likely to take the situation lying down either. Not overnight, but never say never, stranger things have happened. It's all going to add a lot of money into the game and business of sport and entertainment, and already our firm is starting to experience some positive spin off benefits.
It's all very exciting and profitable". Sydney is the largest and most populous city in Australia and the state capital of New South Wales. Sydney is located on Australia's south-east coast of the Tasman Sea. Inhabitants of Sydney are called Sydneysiders, comprising a cosmopolitan and international population of people from numerous places around the world. The city is built on hills surrounding Port Jackson which is commonly known as Sydney Harbour, where the iconic Sydney Opera House and the Harbour Bridge are featured prominently.
The hinterland of the metropolitan area is surrounded by national parks, and the coastal regions feature many bays, rivers, inlets and beaches including the famous Bondi Beach. In , Sydney was ranked 7th in Asia and 28th globally for economic innovation in the Innovation Cities Top Index by innovation agency 2thinknow. Sydney also ranks among the top 10 most livable cities in the world according to Mercer Human Resource Consulting and The Economist.
Sydney has hosted major international sporting events, including the British Empire Games, the Summer Olympics, and the final match of the Rugby World Cup. Radio carbon dating suggests that the Sydney region has been inhabited by indigenous Australians for at least 30, years. The traditional Indigenous inhabitants of Sydney Cove are the Cadigal people, whose land once stretched from south of Port Jackson to Petersham.
The British called the Indigenous people the "Eora", because being asked where they came from, these people would answer: "Eora", meaning "here", or "from this place" in their language. There were three language groups in the Sydney region, which were divided into dialects spoken by smaller clans.
The principal languages were Darug the Cadigal, original inhabitants of the City of Sydney, spoke a coastal dialect of Darug , Dharawal and Guringai. Each clan had a territory, the location of said territory determined the resources available. Although urbanisation has destroyed much evidence of these settlements such as shell middens , a number of Sydney rock engravings, carvings and rock art remain visible in the Hawkesbury sandstone of the Sydney basin.
It is here that Cook made first contact with an Aboriginal community known as the Gweagal. Under instruction from the British government, a convict settlement was founded by Arthur Phillip, who arrived at Botany Bay with a fleet of 11 ships on 18 January This site was soon determined to be unsuitable for habitation, owing to poor soil and a lack of reliable fresh water.
Phillip subsequently founded the colony one inlet further up the coast, at Sydney Cove on Port Jackson on 26 January He named it after the British Home Secretary, Thomas Townshend, Lord Sydney, in recognition of Sydney's role in issuing the charter authorising Phillip to establish a colony. The original name was intended to be Albion until Phillip decided upon Sydney. The International Exhibition of at the Garden Palace.
In April a disease, thought to be smallpox, killed an estimated to Aboriginal people between Broken Bay and Botany Bay. There was violent resistance to British settlement, notably by the warrior Pemulwuy in the area around Botany Bay, and conflicts were common in the area surrounding the Hawkesbury River.
By there were only a few hundred Aborigines and Governor Macquarie had begun initiatives to 'civilise, Christianise and educate' the Aborigines by removing them from their clans. Macquarie's tenure as Governor of New South Wales was a period when Sydney was improved from its basic beginnings. Roads, bridges, wharves and public buildings were constructed by British and Irish convicts, and by the town had banks, markets, well-established thoroughfares and an organised constabulary.
The s and s were periods of urban development, including the development of the first suburbs, as the town grew rapidly when ships began arriving from Britain and Ireland with immigrants looking to start a new life in a new country. On 20 July the municipal council of Sydney was incorporated and the town was declared the first city in Australia, with John Hosking the first elected mayor.

With industrialisation Sydney expanded rapidly, and by the early 20th century it had a population of more than a million.
The Great Depression hit Sydney badly. One of the highlights of the Depression era, however, was the completion of the Sydney Harbour Bridge in There has traditionally been a rivalry between Sydney and Melbourne since the gold rushes of the s made the capital of Victoria Australia's largest and richest city.
Sydney overtook Melbourne in population in the early years of the 20th century, and has remained the largest city in Australia since this time. During the s and s Sydney's CBD with a great number of financial institutions including the headquarters of the Reserve Bank surpassed Melbourne as the nation's financial capital. Throughout the 20th century, especially in the decades immediately following World War II, Sydney continued to expand as large numbers of European and later Asian immigrants populated the metropolitan area.
