Virgin Has Just Bought Out The Hard Rock Hotel And Casino

By Flenn Elliott

Today we invite you to dive into the world of finance and casinos with the affair that is sparking ink this first week of April 2018: the case of Virgin Hotels Las Vegas. Indeed, Richard Branson has just got his hands on the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino, a very large gaming establishment set back from the Strip. Even if the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino is not the most emblematic establishment of Sin City, it nevertheless knew how to charm the billionaire Richard Branson who had just set his sights on him. We therefore find ourselves here facing a personal project for this businessman who should see the transformation of the casino be completed by 2020, to become a Virgin Hotels Las Vegas.

Richard Branson gets into the game

Are you a die-hard Hard Rock Hotel and Casino fan? Well, we have some bad news for you, as you only have two short years left to enjoy the charms of this establishment in the state. Indeed, it will leave its place at the Virgin Hotels Las Vegas at the end of renovations at the end of 2019. Improvements and renovations which should considerably increase the capacity of the gaming room. But that’s not all, because it plans are to dig new swimming pools and increase the number of rooms to 1,500.

For everything else, the press release published by the Virgin group is rather discreet and elusive, even silent about the amount of the transaction.

Hard Rock is not dead!

Indeed ! Do not imagine that this financial transaction and new acquisition of the Hard Rock Hotel by the Virgin group sign the end of the franchise. The latter has no fewer than ten other drop-off points in the United States and even plans to open five more in the coming years. But it is a wise new purchase and above all an acquisition which marks an acceleration in the development strategy of Virgin Hotels. He plans to add soon to his establishment in Chicago, which is quite recent because it opened in 2015, new addresses in San Francisco, Dallas and New York.

Richard Brunson and his brand Virgin

Branson is finally getting into the casinos and doing it with his Virgin group which is, it is useful to remind you, a huge empire comprising very diverse brands. Within this firm we find the airline company Virgin Atlantic, but also the mobile telephone company Virgin Mobile and Virgin Galactic, a sector which aims to develop the crazy project of space tourism.

It will therefore be the turn of Virgin Hotels, one of its subsidiaries, to acquire a new property that its founder aimed, it must be admitted, for a very long time already.

New for Branson

At the age of 67, the billionaire recently announced that he had got his hands on the Hard Rock Casino in Las Vegas. Something that does not really surprise the world of casino operators or finance since it seemed indeed interested in this type of entertainment for more than 20 years. It will therefore be the very first casino controlled by the businessman. But who says new purchase and new arrival in the sector says reset. And Hard Rock purists will therefore be rather disappointed to learn that Branson intends to completely renovate the establishment, just to put it under the colors of Virgin. On the finance side, we know that, according to the sources of the main interested party,

At Only 18 And She Wins $ 1 Million In The Lottery

By Flenn Elliott

When she is just 18 years old, a young girl buys her first lottery ticket and wins the staggering sum of C $ 1 million! A magical and lively story, as we love to tell you about them on

A great start in life

No, it’s not an April Fool’s Day, and this young girl is obviously in the headlines in the gaming press this week since, barely 18, she bought her first lottery ticket and won C $ 1 million! An opportunity to give truth to the saying and concept of beginner’s luck. It must be admitted, moreover, on this occasion, that if no scientific proof has ever attested to this maxim, the fact remains that many people remain convinced that a novice will have more luck at a game of chance that a person who has the habit. And if we stop today at the cute little incredible story of Charlie Lagarde, there is a good chance that you too will believe in it.

Timing in the hair!

She enters the adult world and secures an annuity until the end of her life. Who wouldn’t want to be Charlie under such conditions? We must admit that we are not all equal when it comes to luck, but we still have to play, which we strongly recommend. But if the timing in life is something that can really seem out of control and incomprehensible, the fact remains that the fact that you choose to take such or such action, and this at a precise moment, can have consequences sometimes. dramatic, but also, and this is the case today for this young woman, rather happy… And this is the least we can say since the consequences of the acts of Charlie Lagarde will be beneficial to him… until the end of his days!

We would all like to be Charlie

When she has just turned 18, the young Quebecer decides to celebrate her birthday. She does it with ease, by purchasing a lottery ticket and a bottle of wine. Now of legal age to play, this will be his very first ticket in his life. And we can say that it will bring her rather luck since by scratching it immediately, she will note with joy and surprise that she has just won the grand prize of 1C $ million… A rather happy way for her to start her life in the adult world! One can easily imagine that this young woman will not have to worry one day about having money problems.

The Quebec lottery, which we will show you a little later in this article, offers two choices to winners. Either they can pocket the amount immediately and in full, or they can be paid as they go. And it is thus this second solution which will be the choice of the young Charlie who thus poses an option on progressive payments. An annuity which will therefore allow him to be entitled to 1,000C $ per week, and this until the end of his days. There is no doubt that this young francophone winner will be able to see life serenely, because she will be able to choose to work, if she wishes, or to take it easy in order to take advantage of this pension, without ever having to stress.
