June 9, 2008 - It seems like ages since I've talked about the land-based gambling industry. Oh wait, that's because it has been ages. Who needs brick 'n mortar casinos when you have so many great options, not to mention better options online, right? Well, the thing is I know some of you like to keep up with what is going on in the world, and one certainly can't deny just how much the land-based gambling industry affects the online realm and vice versa.

That said, here are some recaps on what I consider to be the most recent relevant gambling news, aside from the latest promotions in Vegas and Macau. Snap! There we go. How 'bout in the future I write up the latest and greatest promotions in the brick 'n mortar world? Now that is something I know most of you can appreciate. Believe me, if you've only gambled online and never stepped foot inside a real casino, you owe it to yourself to give it a try. God knows many devoted online gamblers can't go without at least a yearly trip to Las Vegas.

Before I get myself more distracted, here's some gambling news recaps for the U.S. facing brick 'n mortar casino gambling industry:

If you live in the State of Massachusetts (that's in the U.S. for any of you geographically handicapped people like myself), you are probably going to get a casino whether you like it or not. The ever-so-persevering Governor Deval Patrick has announced he is ready to "negotiate within existing laws" to allow the Mashpee Wampanoag Indian tribe to run their own casino, much in the same way that Connecticut got it's world famous Foxwoods Casino. Kudos to you Governor Patrick!

In Washington D.C., House investigators released a report detailing imprisoned lobbyist, Jack Abramoff's dealings with people in former White House Deputy Chief of Staff, Karl Rove's court. In the report, Abramoff's team was shown to have numerous communications with Rove's assistant, Susan Ralston, at the time - directly in relation to stopping a casino compact for the Jena Band Choktaw tribe, which the Interior Department ended up doing.

And in dusty Oklahoma (I hear it's dusty there...isn't it called the dustbowl or something?), the Quapaw tribe is geared up and ready to open their $200 million Downstream Casino Resort on July 5, 2008. With a 12-story resort hotel, an 18-hole golf course, and 2,000 slot machines, this casino may become the pride of Oklahoma in true Las Vegas style.
