What's with the btdino?

The Missouri Gaming Commission ruled last week on three cases against the Isle of Capri Casino. The casino, located in Kansas City, will pay a total of $165,000 fines for disciplinary incidents that date back up to four years.

The incidents include a case in which the casino did not report to the Gaming Commission that a patron's purse had been stolen in September 2003. That same year, the casino failed to report a patron's complaint that he had been threatened with a knife and also did not inform the commission about a person who had tried to enter the casino using a fake ID.

The oldest case dates back to 2001, when the casino failed to report that a casino security staff member had taken a player into custody for questioning.

Fortuna Gaming Corporation, a company that “plans to become a leading mobile and online provider for the Internet gaming entertainment industry,” has inked a Letter of Intent to acquire an online casino company and all of its shares. The company has chosen to keep the casino's name confidential until the deal closes sometime in the beginning of next year's second quarter.

The acquisition will include an online gaming software platform that will support over 80 interactive casino games in 15 languages and four currencies. The company also expects the acquisition to bring it 65,000 active players, along with a database of 650,000.

Fortuna Gaming Corporation President, Doug Waugh, was quoted as saying, "This acquisition is a key component of the Company's growth plans as it brings an international player base of approximately 650,000 and a team of programmers and customer support personnel to the Company. Rather than growing the business organically, we can now offer our mobile and wireless products and technology to an established player base using the Seller's on-line casino products and systems."
