Indiana residents now have more options when choosing where to go and gamble. Hoosier Park has opened the doors to their new casino to the public, marking a new era in casino gambling in the state.

In addition to Hoosier Park, Indiana Downs will also be opening their new casino next Friday. The combination of the two new casinos should provide residents in the state a nice choice in their gambling venues.

“Well, on balance it should be a real plus for Indiana because there is more investment, more employment and there are two of them. So we should expect that to increase economic activity in the state,” said Bill Rieber, Butler University Economist.

The new casinos will give a boost to another state that is dealing with economic hard times. Indiana is hoping the two casinos will generate much needed revenue for the state budget.

Other states are also moving towards expanding their casino gambling laws. It has become the in style way for politicians to try and solve budget deficits that are growing daily. Currently some form of gambling is legal in forty eight out of fifty states.

The two casinos opening in Indiana have both been doing plenty of advertising leading up to their openings. Indiana Downs is promoting on billboards, while Hoosier Park is using television commercials to do their advertising.

New Zealand has been making strides towards becoming more aware of the casino gambling industry. One of the facets of that awareness is recognizing and treating problem gambling.

The Minitry’s public health unit has completed a study on problem gambling. One of the major things they found, was that problem gambling was heavily influenced by location.

The proximity of people in relation to casinos had a big effect on whether a person became a problem gambler or not. The closer a person lived to a casino, the more likely that they had gambled in the casino.

The study was done based on a survey back in 2002-03. The survey had over 12,000 respond, which gave the health unit more than enough people to make an informed opinion.

In order to help fix this problem, Councils could be more inclined to put distance between new casinos that are being built. The Christchurch City Council has already taken steps to help the problem gambling. They have placed a moratorium on new poker machines in the city.

Hoopla Over, Time For Colts And Bears To Play For Championship

 

Peyton Manning has waited his whole life to win a title of some kind. The title did not come in high school nor did it come at The University of Tennessee, where he had a stellar career. Now, after years of hearing rumors of his inability to win the big game Manning stands one win away from football infamy.

On the other side of the field Rex Grossman will stand with a similar image in his head, Grossman will be looking to lead the Chicago Bears to their first title since the 1985 season.

It has been extremely hard for the players to focus on the game at hand with their environment being the shores of South Beach in Miami, but today, they will try to put all of the distractions behind them as both teams seek to become Super Bowl champions.

The oddsmakers believe that the Colts will win based on public opinion as the betting line lingers at the Colts favored by a touchdown, but as past Super Bowls as evidence, the betting line is little more than public opinion.

The day these athletes have dreamed about their entire lives is upon them, and for one of these teams, their lifelong dreams, as well as their individual legacies, will be hanging in the balance, in a late evening Miami Beach showdown.

Colts Defeat Bears To Win The Super Bowl

The game played in Miami was played poorly, almost as poorly as the weather, but through all of the sloppiness a champion emerged, as the Colts became what amounted to the last team standing.

The first half was filled with blunders as both teams took turns giving the ball back and forth through turnovers and at the half the Colts led 16-14.

In the second half it appeared that the Colts were ready to seize control of the game, but each time the Bears defense stiffened deep in their own end and held the Colts to field goal attempts.

The turning point of the game came when much maligned Bears quarterback Rex Grossman threw an interception for a touchdown with the score only 22-17 at the time.

After that things unravelled for the Bears and Grossman, who threw another interception to seal the game on a pass to what appeared to be a wide open Bernard Berrian. The pass was severely under thrown.

So now the Bears and Grossman are left to face an off season of questions while Peyton Manning and Tony Dungy have answered their critics.

Dungy becomes the first African-American head coach to hoist the Super Bowl trophy, while Manning was the games most valuable player.
