Sin City Perth?...
punter was very lucky to escape with his skin after
he was ambushed and then robbed by two men armed with
a pole and a screwdriver this morning. Police spokeswoman
Susan Usher said the 38-year-old man was walking along
Great Eastern Highway in Burswood just after 3am today
when he was approached by a man wielding a screwdriver.
As the man asked the victim if he had any money, a
second offender holding a pole approached him from
behind, threatening the man before grabbing his backpack.
The victim fled to the Burswood Casino. The two men
are believed to have ran away on foot with the man's
belongings. One of the mongrels was described as being
about 23-year-old and wearing a gray jumper, while
the second man was wearing a black jumper. Appropriate
coloured clothing for the black hearted criminals.
Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers
on 1800 333 000.

facial fractures after they were bashed outside a
very popular Fremantle pub last night. Police spokeswoman
Susan Usher said two security guards were attempting
to toss out three mugs from Rosie O'Grady's pub when
a scuffle broke out. A female bouncer was allegedly
pulled to the ground and punched and kicked by the
trio. A male bouncer who tried to come to her aid
was also assaulted. A 27-year-old lass and a 45-year-old
bloke were taken into police custody. The three men
that were being ejected from the pub managed to flee
before police arrived. Charges have not yet been laid,
and police are continuing to investigate the crime.
The security guards injuries are not serious.
Aussie Casino King James Packer And Baillieu In Negotiations
Over Gambling Laws...
Victorian Baillieu government has held talks with
gambling tsar James Packer about plans for gamblers
to limit their potential losses before beginning to
play pokies in Victoria. Both the government and a
spokesman for Packer refused to say when and where
the discussions took place and if the federal government's
plans for the mandatory pre-commitment system or a
possible High Court challenge to the proposal were
discussed. Crown Casino spokesman Gary O'Neill said:
"Crown does not comment on the substance of discussions
Packer may or may not have had with anyone."
A spokesman for Premier Ted Baillieu would confirm
only that the Premier had chatted with Packer at several
functions since winning the November state election.
Gaming Minister Michael O'Brien's spokesman said:
"The minister has met with many parties interested
in gambling regulation in the seven months since the
election and will continue to do so. "Discussions
regarding the Victorian government's pre-commitment
policies have occurred with various groups including
Clubs Victoria, the Interchurch Gambling Taskforce
and Crown Ltd (including its chairman, James Packer)."
The Reverend Tim Costello, national campaigner for
action to reduce problem gambling, said he had been
waiting six months for a meeting with Baillieu. He
said that Baillieu should be transparent about what
contact he had had with Mr Packer. "I thought
Ted Baillieu came to office promising greater transparency,"
he said. The Baillieu government supports a voluntary
pre-commitment system for poker machines and has threatened
a High Court challenge if the Gillard government proceeds
with its mandatory pre-commitment system. A mandatory
pre-commitment system for poker machines is being
demanded by federal Tasmanian MP Andrew Wilkie - without
which he will withdraw his support for the Gillard
government. It is not just with the Victorian government
that Packer has been discussing poker machine reforms.
His Crown Casino recently engaged ex Labor Party national
secretary Karl Bitar to manage its relations with
the government, and reportedly hosted individual briefings
with senior federal Labor ministers including Treasurer
Wayne Swan, Communications Minister Stephen Conroy,
Sports Minister Mark Arbib, Assistant Treasurer Bill
Shorten and the Families Minister, Jenny Macklin.
Packer's political punts as of late look to be paying
Packer Chats With Vic Premier Ted Baillieu?; No Comment...
office of the Victorian Premier, Ted Baillieu, has
declined to comment on the substance of several meetings
that Mr Baillieu held with gambling business operator
James Packer. A spokesman for Gaming Minister Michael
O'Brien confirmed that the government had discussed
pre-commitment policies for poker machines with "groups
including Clubs Victoria, the Interchurch Gambling
Taskforce and Crown Ltd."

from the New South Wales Office of Liquor, Gaming
and Racing, acting undercover last Saturday, have
found that two businesses in Sydney have been illegally
selling and delivering alcohol, with their round-the-clock
services advertised on the social media website Facebook.
While there are loopholes in the licensing laws which
allow limited amounts of wine to be delivered as gifts,
neither The Beer Baron nor The Blind Pig "met
requirements", according to the regulator.
James Packer And Andrew Forrest; GenerationOne Tag
Team Say PM Gillard Is Anti Business...
billionaires have been extremely critical of PM Gillard
policies. Packer is on a quest to squash legislation
that will crimp the earnings he will derive from his
gambling machines. Gillard has been copping a hammering.
The PM's political livelihood depends on the support
of MP Andrew Wilkie, who is firm in his mission to
get some reforms in place to deal with problem gamblers.
Packer's mate Forrest has been also turning up the
heat on Gillard. Sing along with us... Gillard is

NextGen Gaming about developing a game or two, including
a Media Man branded selection, as well as some for

Online Casino And Paddy Power Rumored For Media Man
International - Asia Pacific Campaign..
spies have been busy and we're hearing that the James
Packer UK connection - Aspinall's are likely to be
soon cracking a deal with Asia Pacific based media,
pr and internet publishing company, Media
Man. The same informant also tipped British gaming
powerhouse, Paddy Power, will also likely be entering
into an agreement with the Media Man firm also. The
name of William Will was also apparently been whispered
about in Media Man offices also and its understood
that a Media Man deal was inked with William Hill
a number of years ago, so perhaps William Hill may
be ready for another shot of the action across the
Asia Pacific. In the meantime Bwin.Party Digital Entertainment
is enjoying their relationship with NextGen Gaming
and the Media Man, and rumors are surfacing of a Knight
Rider online slot game coming up, but it's a rumor
- not a fact at this stage folks. A deep throat also
says that Australia is begging for a Hulk Hogan and
Ric Flair online slot game, and that the good folks
at Endemol UK may be developing one or two pro wrestling
online slots, so a new type of WrestleMania may soon
be found on the internet. All is expected to be revealed
in the coming weeks, if not sooner.
