Hard Rock Global as well as the Meadowlands Racetrack have revealed their plan for the casino in north New Jersey.
The companies are proposing a $1 billion casino project for the East Rutherford sports complex, right next to the New York Jets and New York Giants’ stadium, should New Jersey opt to split the Atlantic City monopoly and authorize gambling expansion in the north.
Situated throughout the Hudson from lower Manhattan and simply 21 miles away from Newark International Airport, tricky Rock CEO Jim Allen believes the casino will be uniquely positioned to reinvigorate nj’s troubled casino industry, which has lost ground in the past few years to states that are neighboring.
Allen said this week that the casino could be up and running within per year, should approval be gotten by the fall.
‘ The new casino would be made to attract visitors from not only the 14 million grownups in north brand New Jersey and new york, but also international travelers, rendering it a premiere entertainment location,’ Allen said.
Lawmakers introduced a bill on Monday that would set up a referendum that is public whether New Jersey should to amend its constitution to permit casino gaming into the north.
Voters could decide whether to permit up to three new casinos in Essex, Hudson or, in the case associated with Hard Rock proposal, Bergen counties.
‘ We would like to create people back from Bethlehem, bringing right back the people in northern New Jersey who now go to Aqueduct or Yonkers,’ said Jeff Gural, president of the Meadowlands Racetrack, whom added that this season was the time that is right change the constitution.
‘ Whenever we have actually to get in 2016, with an election that is presidential our message gets lost amid the rest. A commercial in 2016 is going to price three times what it costs in 2010. Frankly, I’d rather wait until 2017.’
Hard Rock Casino Meadowlands would have 200 table games and 5,000 slot machines, in addition to a 2,000-seat concert venue, but Allen and Gural said these are typically also exploring the likelihood of utilizing the shuttered Izod Center arena on the sports complex grounds for bigger events.
A giant neon guitar would dominate the front of the casino which would be like ‘a beacon in the nighttime,’ according to Allen as with most Hard Rock properties.
It could perhaps not include a hotel, but is well-served served by the 10,000-odd hotel rooms in the Meadowlands area.
Gural and Allen explained that the Hard Rock Casino Meadowlands would pay a 55 percent income tax rate on its slots winnings and would generate $400 million to $500 million a year in tax income for the state, a few of which will be shared with atlantic city.

Rick Perry has announced his candidacy for the GOP nomination for president in 2016, making him the latest Republican that is high-profile to the race.
Perry will now look to find an easy method to face right out of the crowd in A gop that is increasingly crowded field one that appears to have nearly as numerous candidates as you can find primary voters.
Perry can look to improve on his poor performance within the race for the 2012 nomination. That makes this something of a comeback work for the previous Texas governor, who found himself at the top of GOP polls early within the last few main period before poor debate performances and gaffes on the campaign trail sunk their bid.
The formal announcement of their candidacy took place at Addison Airport outside Dallas on Thursday. Early in the day, Perry released an on-line video letting supporters understand that he would be running a time that is second.
‘ Whenever we’re going to bring back this American dream again we truly need a president who provides leadership that transcends the petty partisanship we’ve seen within the last couple of years,’ Perry said in the video. ‘Someone that’s been tested and a president who tells the US people the truth.’
In 2012, Perry made gaffes that are several but the one that is best remembered had been their inability to remember the name of 1 of the three federal agencies he pledged to abolish if he became president. This time, however, Perry might have work to do if he also wishes to find yourself in the televised debates.
Fox News has said that only the most truly effective ten Republican candidates, considering the common for the five most recent polls that are national reputable polling agencies, will be invited to participate in their August 6 debate later this summer. Generally in most years, this could be described as a rather nice guideline, but in a year when there could be since numerous as 20 severe applicants for the GOP nomination, it’s not clear who makes the cut at this point.
Undoubtedly, there are a candidates that are few appear safe. Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush, Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker, and Florida Senator Marco Rubio have formed the top that is early, though even these are typically only averaging about 12 to 13 percent of the vote in recent polls.
They would be invited to the debates unless their support were to take a serious hit in the next few months behind them is a second tier of candidates who are typically polling in the high single-digits, meaning. These include conservative author and doctor Ben Carson, Kentucky Senator Rand Paul, Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee, and Texas Senator Ted Cruz.
If the debates were to be held today, and all expected applicants formally declare their bids, it is likely that the field would be rounded away by New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, businessman/reality television celebrity Donald Trump, and finally, in 10th place, Perry.
But there’s an abundance of competition for that final spot: former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum, Ohio governor John Kasich, business executive Carly Fiorina, South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham, and Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal are the type of whom have either declared their candidacy or are required to do so shortly.
If Rick Perry is looking for new supporters to bolster his possibilities, he is not likely to see them among fans of online gambling. Perry has been a staunch opponent of Internet casino games and poker, going in terms of to send a page to Congressional leaders last year in order to voice their support for the Restoration of America’s Wire Act (RAWA).
‘Congress requires to help now and phone a ‘time-out’ by restoring the interpretation that is decades-long of Wire Act,’ Perry wrote.
Up to now, Rand Paul and Chris Christie have been the many prominent potential GOP presidential prospects to come out in support of online gambling, though many more have actually yet to stake down a posture on the problem. Lindsey Graham and Marco Rubio have both emerge strongly from the Internet that is recreational activity.
Liga Portugal has reported Federbet towards the authorities, claiming before it criticized its integrity that it has tried to offer its services for an exorbitant price.
Federbet, the mysterious Brussels-based ‘sports integrity’ firm, has once again caused a stir by way of a publishing series of apparently wild allegations about match-fixing in European soccer leagues.
The company’s annual report lists myriad games played in leagues all across European countries, from Sweden to Portugal, which it claims have dropped prey to the corruption of Asian syndicates that are betting.
The problem is, it doesn’t offer any evidence in support of its claims, simply hyperbolic and comically stilted imagery about ‘viruses’ and ‘antibodies.’
‘The chronicle of shocking news from present weeks verifies that the occurrence of match fixing has taken even more dimensions that are alarming’ warns the report, before offering a list ‘fixed’ matches without description of this methodology used in detecting these matches.
The facts which are detailed into the report, meanwhile, come from match-fixing scandals that have formerly been exposed and so are in the public domain.
Why does this matter?
Well, for a start, soccer has enough to worry about at the moment, not least the behavior of its governing that is international body without Federbet muddying the waters.
Also, sports integrity organizations, such as Federbet claims become, are important.
These organizations use sophisticated technology to monitor and evaluate the betting that is global and rely on the cooperation of betting organizations around the world to report any suspicious wagering activity they uncover.
Neither the gambling industry nor the activities monitoring experts no anything about Federbet.
But last summer, Federbet somehow discovered itself addressing the European Parliament, espousing its theories about widespread match-fixing regarding the stage that is big.
Its assertions then had been slammed by sporting figures, plus the French and gambling that is italian, as being entirely unfounded.
Khalid Ali the assistant general of the European Sports Security Association (ESSA), which works together over 20 major sports bodies to root out corruption, was even more scathing.
‘No one inside the European regulated wagering industry is aware of who Federbet are or whatever they represent,’ he said. ‘They seem to be a business steeped in secrecy…’
‘Establishing corruption is a multi-sector partnership activity involving a widely grasped protocol with sporting figures and regulatory authorities which Federbet is ignoring. Just in co-operation with those other stakeholders can complete and proper investigations take place that may then determine whether corruption has occurred… Promoting unfounded allegations can wreck careers and the confidence in both betting markets and sporting occasions with serious economic impacts.’
Liga Portugal, which Federbet criticized heavily in its report, said that the company was positively ‘not a body that oversees the web betting industry in any official capacity,’ but had been a attorney acting alone who had unsuccessfully attempted to offer its services towards the league for ‘absolutely unaffordable quantities.’
