The week in pictures: October 14th – 20th

Oct 21, 2014

Weekly news in pictures

The world last week wobbled between the tragic and the blessed, the diseased and the drunken, so lets look back at what went on

The tragedy of the numerous avalanche that struck Nepal last week has left 39 people dead so far and more are likely to be recovered in time. A mammoth rescue effort was swung into action as trekkers and climbers were slowly rescued by locals, guides, the emergency services and military. Over 400 people were taken to safety as the search continued throughout the weekend in this remote mountainous kingdom which is a favorite with altitude junkies.The successful negotiations in Nigeria, on the other hand, have been hailed as a major diplomatic victory for both sides with the upshot being that the schoolgirls so alarmingly kidnapped from their schools in the summer may well be back with their friends and families in the very near future ending their months of captivity. The negotiations had been rumored but were only confirmed after the successful arrangement of the truce last week.

There’s no sign of a truce on the street of the Mong Kok district of the modern metropolis that is Hong Kong with the authorities having sent in police to remove barricades and protestors from blocking major streets within the city. However successful they were initially by the end of the day many of the protestors and their obstructions had returned leaving the Chinese-run government with an ever decreasing number of options.

Which is probably true of the crew of the Russian submarine the Russians are strenuously denying has got itself into trouble off the coast of Sweden. The denial rang a bit hollow when the Swedes claimed to have picked up a Russian distress signal and launched a search and rescue operation involving hundreds of troops, boats and aircraft to find the submarine Moscow refused to admit ownership of perhaps gambling that it will yet slip away.

Here are some pictures of the gambling events that made the news last week, on GamblingResults.

1. Chukchansi Gold Resort & Casino was shut down due to an armed altercation involving different groups of Indian tribes.

2. Taj Mahal Casino’s Fate was the subject of another round of discussions. In order to save the gambling venue and more than a thousand jobs, owners and union members are analyzing all the options.

3. Can’t stand to be looked at while you’re receiving an over-sized check? A Chinese lottery winner used a disguise to make the handing out ceremony more… bearable.

4. Japan might get its casinos before the Tokyo Olympics, but the government remains committed to its mission: stopping locals from having any fun in there.

5. Swedish politicians took too long to ponder on what the country’s new gambling laws should look like – apart from… you know… liberal – so the EC is dragging them to European court.

6. Former WSOP champion Darren Woods is accused of opening 13 fake accounts on a poker site. Now there’s no need to jump to conclusions here, this doesn’t necessarily make him a fraudster; he could just be suffering from multiple personality disorder.

7. Researchers have picked the brains of problem gamblers, only to find that they don’t get much of a kick out of a normal day at the casino. Apparently, their brains are only satisfied once they’ve spent way too much money!

Meanwhile President Obama has appointed an Ebola Tsar to assist in combating the hysteria sweeping his country that might well explain why New Hampshire had a pumpkin festival turn into a full scale riot. Will this week be as crazy? Take a look at the daily news on GamblingResults and stay up to date.

Teenage Lottery Winner To Live With Parents and $1.5 Million Prize

Oct 22, 2011
chav teenage lottery winner loves brother

Unlike the millions of teenagers who would pay money to leave their families for independence, an 18 year old UK teenage lottery winner has decided to spend part of her winnings on a family home and to remain living there with her brother.

The teenage lottery winner‘s parents who currently live on the dole in one of the finest council homes on a lavish estate in the best part of Hackney, London along with her younger sister and brother.

The newest millionaire will purchase a stylish and expensive house and remain living there, even planning a construction of a separate bathroom within her own suite.

The family’s current council home has but one toilet, so in the morning rush for the dole lines, disability and welfare benefits, there was always a large queue for the bathroom.

“It didn’t really sink in at first, I just thought I had won some money and then when I found out I rang my family and they were crying down the phone. It’s been a struggle and things like that, it has always been quite tight.”

Teenage lottery winner

“When I told my younger sister I had some ‘big news’ for her and to sit down, she said, You are pregnant? You’ve been shagging like a cat in heat all month with them Jamaican boys. I burst out laughing and said, ‘No, I’ve won the lottery’.”

The 1 in 14 million chance of winning has come at the right time for the teenage lottery winner, according to Stacey. Stacey also plans to buy her older sister Kirsty, 21, a home for her and her young son Alfie due to the fact that she’s recently been made redundant.

Big Lottery Winner – $2 Million – Loves Casinos and Gambling

May 23, 2011
big lottery winner loves gambling

A man in Michigan, the big lottery winner, still receives a government welfare subsidy created to help the poor – despite winning a $2 million state lottery with the full blessing of the US government and in fact loves casinos and gambles with the taxpayer money

Leroy Fick, the lottery winner, is unapologetic and frankly spoke to reporters about his mooching off the gullible program. Leroy’s motto is – ‘If it’s free, it’s for me and morality is for philosophers.’

The same prevalent way of thinking has proven time and time again why people such as the big lottery winner can get over on the system. Our safety net is but a dream carried on the backs of hard working citizens who must pay taxes to support elite gamblers like Leroy Fick

Leroy, who is a Caucasian, told reports that he notified the agency upon becoming a big lottery winner, and was told that he could continue to collect the schmorgasbord of tax payer funded food each week for the rest of his life. Leroy is 54 and looks healthy as a shark.

Big Lottery Winner Enjoying Life

It turns out that according to US poverty guidelines, winning the lottery and becoming the big lottery winnerbig lottery winner is considered a ‘liquid asset’ and not ‘personal income’ and thus doesn’t count when calculating a person’s poverty level. It’s no wonder that with rules like these that the entire world wants to run to the United States.

In another slap in the face for the American taxpayer, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) took almost 50% of the winnings in taxes as personal income despite the big lottery winner smirking right at them.

Tourist Wins Big – $1M Philippines Lottery and Natives are Restless

May 20, 2011
tourist wins big in Philippines and natives restless

Tourist wins big in Philippines

Tourist wins big, a cool $1 million on his birthday vacation in Philippines, calls it the best birthday gift he ever had. Mr. Joe decided to buy a lottery ticket after purchasing some beer at a shopping store next to his hotel.

Mr. Joe., an Australian citizen, purchased the ‘pick 6’ lottery tickets more out of habit than forethought. Back home, in Melbourne, Mr. Joe has been playing the weekly lottery as far back as he can remember. So even on vacation in Angel City Philippines, he couldn’t resist doing the same.

The day was Friday the 13th and Mr. Joe remembers joking with some friends at the local bar that the night before he had a dream that a tourist wins big , what they jokes was the number one prize in Philippines. He later forgot all about the lottery tickets as he was spending the full month partying and celebrating his 50th birthday.

When a few days later he ran across the tickets, he checked the numbers online only to discover that he won 43,017,157.80 in local currency – which is the equivalent of exactly 1 million US dollars.

Tourist wins big and natives are restless

There are no provisions in the Philippines gambling laws to forbid foreign residents or any language that a tourist wins big. A number of community activist groups are howling with rage, demanding changes.

Large groups of poor locals are hot mad over the foreigner’s win as well. The locals, who live on the equivalent of 50 cents daily, feel it is unfair for a rich foreign tourist to win so much money.

We wish Mr. Joe the best of luck getting outside Manila, and hope that tourists wins big again in what is considered one of the most dangerous cities in the world, alive with the million dollars. Online Online sports betting businesses are paying 50 to 1 odds if you think the lottery winner will not be able to get out of the country alive.

More news to follow on this developing story.
