robbery-eurosport-denmarkFor the second time in a matter of months, the city of Las Vegas has seen a chip theft at one of their casinos.

This time a man wearing a fedora, fake moustache, and sunglasses, who stole around $32,000 in chips whilst brandishing a gun, held up the Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino.

It’s the latest robbery after the Bellagio was done over for around $1.5million of chips before authorities caught up with the perpetrator earlier this month.

French newspapers are reporting that the owner of Chilipoker may be about to take off the hands of TF1.

The French TV broadcaster are thought to want to get rid of the site that made a loss of €26m in 2010 and La Tribune and French news agency AFP are reporting that Chilipoker founder Alexander Dreyfus is the man in the frame.

Both parties have so far issued no comment and in addition, anyone looking to take over the site is likely to have to sort out a separate usage agreement for the Eurosport naming rights.

Danish monopoly operator Danske Spil has seen an increase in profits over the previous year after a strong performance over the World Cup.

Profits rose by DKK52m (£5.97m) year on year and revenue for the Danish monopoly provider rose to DKK10,203m from DKK10,135m the year before.

It comes as delays to the Danish online gambling regulations could mean that it takes as long as six months for anything to become law. Politicians are doing their best to deny that this is the case but mud sticks!
