Tabcorp And Crown Want Aussie Gvt To Lift Game On High Rollers, by Greg Tingle - 24th February 2011

G'day punters, casino millionaires and billionaires, politicians, legal eagles, one and all. Australia's leading gaming companies, namely Tabcorp (Star City etc) and Crown Limited (Crown Casino and Burswood Casino etc) are demanding the the Australian government lift its game to help down under become more high roller whale friendly, especially at our international airports in Sydney and Melbourne. We probe and examine if the fact that the Gillard government not officially being a big fan of gambling is a factor, or if its a smoke screen hiding something more sinister. Media Man and Gambling911 hit the runway as we play plans, trains, automobiles (and politics)...

Tabcorp And Crown Limited To Aussie Government: Lift You're Game For High Rollers In Airports...

Tabcorp casinos big wig Larry Mullin has joined the pack of not happy Aussie casino and gambling tycoons and top brass telling the federal government to lift their game - streamline customs and immigration paperwork and checks for Oriental high-rollers flying down under into Australia, backing up his Crown Casino equal Rowen Craigie. Mullin advised making visas easier to obtain and installing "VIP customs lounges" at major airports to allow high-roller customers to avoid unsatisfactory queues should be seriously considered, and pronto. He said Australia needed to consider a similar model to Singapore, which has created a private lounge to fast-track customs and immigration processing for high-rolling whales. It's understood revenue from Singapore's two land based casinos opened last year is already close to $US5 billion a year. "The customers and the customer experience is everything. That first and last impression is so helpful, especially after long flights. "You go into Singapore, they pick you up in a golf cart and drive you to a private area and there's a government official in the receiving area. You almost feel as if you are going into a hotel experience, that was the seamlessness of it. I understand why you need the processes that are there, but I think we need to explore and get as fast as we can similar type of conveniences here." Mullin said Crown Casino chief exec Rowen Craigie was heading up the discussions with the federal government in his role as the president of the Australasian Casino Association. Craigie last month said the improvements were necessary in order for Australia to plug into the lucrative middle and upper-class Chinese tourism market and compete with Singapore. Tabcorp, which will launch its first personalised jet service for high-roller customers tomorrow, generates less than 10% of its casino revenues from high-rollers. But it is the fastest-growing arm of its business, with revenues from VIP customers up 36% to $32.9 million in the December half. Tabcorp is understood to have spent about $40m leasing the 14-seater jet which came on high recommendation by rock star Bon Jovi, a friend of Mullin. It will start transiting in punters from Asia tomorrow. The firm, which is spending a massive $960m on renovating its flagship Star City casino in Sydney, is now also throwing in $160m on its domestic and international VIP businesses to upgrade digs, improve and expand private gambling facilities and lease two private jets. Originally the jets were going to be purchased, but the bean counters thought better to lease. Mullin also advised Tabcorp, which plans to demerge its casino division by mid-year, was planning to work with the New South Wales government on tourism campaigns targeting potential casino customers. "As our project gets more mature we would like to get better placed in that," he said. Various gambling experts have leaked to Media Man that they expect Crown and Tabcorp to have a better year than last, as well as improved government dealings.

Tatts Gets Profit; Good News Finally...

Tatts Group Ltd has reported a 3.4% lift in first half net profit as the gambling and gaming company sees signs of growth reemerging after set backs due to recent natural disasters such as floods and cyclones. Net profit rose to $149.91 million for the 6 months to December 31 from $144.96 million a year earlier, Melbourne based Tatts said in a statement on Thursday. Revenue jumped 17.4% to $1.62 billion. The firm declared a interim dividend of 10.5 cents per share, fully franked. Chief executive Dick McIlwain said the growth rates of the first half were showing signs of re-emerging after the disruption from the floods in Queensland and Victoria and Cyclone Yasi in Northern Queensland. Tatts said investors and other observers had enquired about the effect on the business from the natural disasters. The company said there was very little damage to company facilities while a significant number of agents and hosts suffered short term damage to electricity supply. Shares in Tatts declined 3.5 cents, or 1.4 per cent, to $2.435.

Aristocrat Leisure Shares Up; Back To Profit!

Airistocrat shares surged to a 3-month high today after the gaming machine supplier returned to the profit zone for 2010. Its stock rose 14 cents, or 4.4%, to $3.30 by 1029 AEDT, the best since November 25, 2010. Aristocrat Leisure today booked a net profit of $77.19 million for the year ended December 31, 2010, compared to a loss of $157.8m in 2009. Revenue fell 25.1% to $680.5m. Aristocrat declared a dividend of 1.5 cents per share, nil franked, compared to no final dividend in the prior year.

Melco Crown Makes US$16 Million Profit; Crown's James Packer Pleased; Could Have Been Much Worse...

Melco Crown Entertainment announced yesterday it recorded net income for the fourth quarter of 2010 of US$16.3 million (MOP130 million), compared with a net loss of US$89.7 million a year earlier. It was the company’s second consecutive quarterly profit. The gain in bottom-line results was driven by the year-over-year improvement in the operating performance at City of Dreams and Altira Macau, the company said. Adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) was US$133.8 million for the fourth quarter of 2010, as compared to adjusted EBITDA of US$2.7 million in the fourth quarter of 2009. Lawrence Ho, co-chairman and chief executive officer of Melco Crown Entertainment, said "our fourth quarter results demonstrate our success in driving operating leverage and in improving the profitability of our portfolio of assets. Our mass market table games business continues to grow and our rolling chip segment remains strong," he said. James Packer, who teamed up on the project via Melco Crown, is understood to have been pleased with the result. The Packer family remains on good terms with the Ho's. It's one happy family again (or at least mainly), which is what we like to hear.

Virgin Airlines and Elle Macpherson: We love women in uniform, by Eva Rinaldi - 23rd February 2011

Who doesn't love a woman in uniform?

Australian Supermodel Elle Macpherson aka 'The Body' has just slipped into something more comfortable, or at least that's the wish of Virgin king of the world, Richard Branson and his media savvy team.

The 40 year plus bombshell has just flown in from a Crown Casino, Melbourne stop over, and is strutting her stuff on the catwalk with Virgin hostesses in Sydney sporting a red hot number that is bound to keep passengers and others up all night (and other reaching for the chequebooks and credit cards).

Macpherson has been busy hosting Britain's Next Top Model, but made time to show off the latest Virgin Airline number, designed by season one Project Runway winner Juli Grbac.

It wasn't surprising, the Virgin King insisted that of his real life hosties also got the media rub off from 'The Body', and the powers that be are expecting Virgin Airlines to experience a lift in numbers (plus more mainly positive news media coverage), but just quietly, they expect a couple of knockers also.

Elle was passionate and extremely emotive, appearing to hold back tears, as she spoke on missing her family in Australia and a sick family member. She still looked a million bucks was pure class.

Virgin Blue PR Danielle Keighery spoke on the new uniform making fresh happenings both in the air and on the ground, but assured us that the staff wouldn't change and would continue to be known for their friendliness and fun.

Sex still sells when done right, and few know how to do it better than Elle and RB (who didn't attend due to a ski accident). Just how much business may have been mixed with pleasure is anyone's guess, but we know that Branson (and Packer friend and associate), Damian Aspinall, the UK gaming and nature entrepreneur, did a series of dates with Elle about a year ago, and Elle is very particular in her brands and men.

I think the matching of Elle and Virgin Airines might just be quite a match up in heaven. Now all we need is a bit of Michael Buble and wedding bells might sing out in the sky.

Branson and Elle - Virgin's, we don't think so...but the hot red uniform sure lends itself to new beginnings and radiates class, sex, power and style, with just a dash of romance.

What airline will you and yours be travelling on for your next overseas honeymoon. No need to tell us, we will take an educated guess darlings. Virgin continues to add to their world class 'body of work', remaining at the top of their game, despite the sometimes turbulent sector. Oh, did we mention, RB is also a member of the 'Mile High Club', but we are not endorsing you join it via his airline, unless you get a special invitation.

Sin City Sydney: Kings Cross Gambling On Real Life Underbelly, by Greg Tingle - 19th February 2011

G'day punters, casino millionaires and billionaires, law enforcement officials, security officers, Underbelly fans and Kings Cross nightclub owners! Today we revisit real life Underbelly, as Kings Cross continues to live up to its name as a hotbed for real life Underbelly in 'Sin City' Sydney. Some nightclub owners and other Kings Cross businessmen apparently lack some faith the the NSW Police and AFP, choosing to engage their own private security force, and we learn that these "gorrillas" are pretty effective, in some aspects, more so than The Force, but the time is coming to see if they will become an official part of the NSW law enforcement landscape or remain rebals on a cause, emploayed by a few Cross hotshots that just need the job done. Media Man and Gambling911 walk the mean streets of The Cross and prob for answers...

Kings Cross in 'Sin City' Sydney still enjoys a bit of a reputation, and its for good reason.

There may not be official casinos in 'The Cross', but bet your bottom dollar there's some illigal gambling dens and Pluck-A-Duck knows how many brothers, legal and illigal, and drugs, and there for anyone who wants to score.

Clubs and hotels are were a great amount of the legal and above board money is, and security is one of the biggest concerns, and many a S.O.B and crime gang roams the street looking to get lucky, and bikers also have the means streets in their sights, and a couple of folks who are understood to control a lot of the cash flow in the red light district.

Private security forces are now pretty much the norm at The X, and some have ties to the Hells Angels.

Nightclub owner - king, John Ibrahim (as often featured in TV hit Underbelly), is understood to be behind much of the private security initiative.

The brick shit house - bodybuilder - martial arts expert types have got the attention of the industry and the Gillard Government. In the coming weeks they may become officially endorsed by the government.

Some of the premisis they patrol include World Bar, Ladylux, Tunnel, Piano Room and Hugo's.

They enjoy a bit of an advantage over the coppers having their their own private radio channel, and their insider info is right on the money. These devils are quick, in a city where information is valuable, and they have been known to turn up to incidents before the police arrive.

The Kings Cross licensees recently voted to back a crafty plan to extend the squad to all clubs and hotels and it also won support from Communities NSW, the department that includes the Office of Liquor, Gaming and Racing and the Casino, Liquor and Gaming Control Authority.

The coppers aka "boys in blue" have mixed feelings about the squad. If it's made official, the plan is to base it at Kings Cross police station, where coppers will be able to access its radio channel. That's something have haven't been able to do to date. They would also likley get to pull a few strings and play a bit of politics with the crew, and swing a bit of clout.

A Communities NSW spokesman said that if it was approved, the service would operate under the close supervision of Communities NSW, the police and licensed venues.

A Media Man spokesperson said "There's cases for and against the squaud. Kings Cross does appear to need more help, so the squad looks to have filled a niche. Whether the proposal is a total solution to security in The Cross remains to be seen.

Australian And New Zealand Gambling And Casino News, by Greg Tingle - 17th February 2011

G'day everyone. It's yet another huge gambling and casino news updated from down under in Australia. We've got political fun and games, lovers VS haters, man VS machine, Big Brother VS The People, and you get the idea. Media Man and Gambling911 with your regular Aussie round up...

Pokies limits Likely To Cost Hotels Up To $4b'...

The Hotels Association says it would cost the industry up to $4 billion to comply with proposed new laws for pokies. The Federal Government aims to force gamblers to set limits on how much money they are prepared to lose before they play machines. But the Australian Hotels Association says the scheme would drive people to other forms of gambling, like illegal or online, and lead down the road to job losses. John Whelan from the Association has told anyone that would listen at a Parliamentary inquiry half of all machines would need to be replaced. "What's being asked of the industry this time around will involve a multi-billion dollar capital cost. It's very unlikely that those many venues or most venues around (have) the cash to do that, and it's equally unlikely that the banks will lend them the money to fund that capital cost."

Proposed Pokie Laws Will Send Smaller Clubs Broke...

Industry group, Clubs New South Wales, says the cost of complying with proposed new poker machine laws will send clubs across the region broke and put thousands out of work. The Productivity Commission has told a parliamentary inquiry, responsible hotels and clubs will barely notice the impact on revenue from the proposed laws designed to help problem gamblers. The new laws would require individuals to register and nominate a maximum spend amount and then use a USB card in converted machines. Clubs NSW Hunter spokesman, John Chin says his Hexham club will have to spend hundreds of thousands of dollars to convert 87 poker machines. "We're talking around $400,000 just to be compliant. I'm sure it's not going to do what they think it's going to do and that's to help the problem gambler." Chin says he understands the Prime Minister's dilemma, but she needs to understand the impact it will have on local clubs and 5,000 Hunter jobs. She had given him the agreement that she would push this through. We are fighting basically a life and death struggle for us and we are not going to give way, saying they can have it their way. We will fight this to the very end."

Higher Power At Work In Gambling; Godsend To Bendigo, Victoria...

Well respected Social welfare agency St Luke’s, has a rather new approach to tackle problem gambling...reaching out to workers at the Bendigo region’s gaming venues. St Luke’s will kick off its new venue support worker program, aimed at helping staff at gaming venues recognise and assist potential problem gamblers. The initiative comes as a new Victorian Commission for Gambling Regulation survey of gaming venue managers and staff showed about two-thirds were less than comfortable to approach someone with a gambling problem and that almost 10% had never been instructed on dealing with problem gamblers. Trevor Rice is one of 26 Gamblers Help venue support workers across Victoria and covers 23 venues in the area from Gisborne and Maryborough to Swan Hill and Echuca. "I go and work out with the venues what training they require. Most venues are looking at how to approach people, and I think it’s a confidence thing. We’ve had some good responses. Some are very proactive, and all of the managers are very positive about the program." Rice said a problem gambler may exhibit one of more than 100 signs, including playing for long periods, attachment to a particular machine, aggression and continued visits to ATMs. Bendigo Stadium chief executive officer Eric Pascoe said Rice began training staff at the stadium last week after he initiated a meeting with Rice and Gamblers Help counsellors at St Luke’s. "The stadium is a community organisation, and we wanted to be a leader in helping problem gamblers and take a very active approach. Some insiders question if a staff member should be required to look out for over 100 different signs in players, thinking that may be more the thing for a body language expert of psychologist, attempting to move the responsibility and legal burden to a club employer. A Media Man spokesperson said "In regard to watching out to problem gamblers, the program has some merit, but it looks like there may be some buck passing going on already. Club workers are not psychologists. One may question if them having to remember up to 100 signs of a problem gambler is fair cop. An agro patron being questioned if they have a problem may also potentially wish to argue or get in a fight with who questions them. This proposal is fraught with questions and risks".

Queensland Banana Benders Punters Spend $5 Million Bucks Per Day On Poker Machines...

Banana Benders sank almost $5 million a day into poker machines in the first month of this year. The state's more than 42,000 machines collected nearly $153 million in metered wins in January. This is about $10 million more than January last year and up more than $18 million for the year to date. Queensland Council of Social Service director Jill Lang advised the number of at-risk and problem gamblers lay between 8 and 9% and were responsible for about 40% per cent of money generated. Some insiders question the numbers, with social groups known to sometimes use misleading numbers in attempt to push their own agenda. Lang said QCOSS supports many of the recommendations from the ongoing federal parliamentary inquiry into gambling, including pre-commitment machines, where gamblers set a limit. She advised that along with slowing down the betting rate and removing ATMs from the area where possible, pre-commitment was a good idea, despite industry saying this week that it would be too expensive. Clubs Queensland CEO Doug Flockhart said despite the higher year-to-date figures, the floods had led a drop in revenue in the central west by almost 44%. He said pokies upgrades would cost between $3500 and $5000 per machine. "Pre-commitment machines are another tool in the box. Any addict, whether it be alcohol or drugs, until they make the decision to stop, there'll be no way to stop them".

Aussie Hotels Want Pokie Limit Trial...

The Australian Hotels Association has just about begged the government to carry out detailed research and trials of mandatory pre-commitment poker machines before rolling out restrictions nationwide. The AHA's written submission to an inquiry on pre-commitment pokies was critical of the push by independent Andrew Wilkie, the committee's chairman, to have the pre-commitment system rolled out in 2014, despite the Productivity Commission saying it should begin in 2016, with exemptions for small hotels until 2018. The AHA warned that it could cost the industry up to $2.5 billion to upgrade machines to make them capable of having a pre-commitment function limiting the amount of money punters can wager. Older machines, mainly in regional areas, would have to be completely replaced at a cost of $25,000 each to make them capable of having a mandatory pre-commitment. In its submission, the AHA said it wished to work with government "to develop a sensible, evidenced-based way forward - that will continue to minimise harm from gambling, but will not close our businesses, slash our workforce and reduce our community support". AHA's national chief executive Des Crowe and director for responsible gaming John Whelan fronted the joint standing committee on gambling reform yesterday. The Productivity Commission also appeared before the committee yesterday highlighting the need for any trial of pre-commitment technology to be held in a large area, such as Tasmania. The commission warned that a small trial zone would allow people to drive to the next suburb where they could play unrestricted. The commission also dismissed concerns that people's privacy could be breached by new technology. On Friday the committee will reconvene in Hobart, where it will hear from Anglicare and the Australasian Casino Association. Media Man has interviewed dozens of journalists and gaming experts about pre commitment over the past few months with all questioned saying they don't see the Gillard government proposal offering a total solution and that trials overseas showed that the pre commitment doesn't work properly. It's widely known that gamblers and problem gamblers will gamble no matter what government restrictions are put in place. An uprising off illegal poker and casino game events are expect in Australia on an invitation only basis. This follows the U.S and Canadian pattern, where if some forms of gambling become illegal or too restricted, they thrive in the underground, falling off the map of government reports and bean counter types.

Crown Casino Loves Rugby Union Too...

James Packer's Crown Casino is enjoying the company of other sports fans at a lunch for Melbourne's new rugby union team, the Rebels. 1200 people showed their support at the lunch, with the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra and opera singer Teddy Tahu Rhodes part of the fun. Mike Brady gave a preview of his new rugby anthem. Rebels board member Gary Gray, whose involvement with Victorian rugby goes back to the failed 2005 bid to get a licence from the Australian Rugby Union, said rugby's support in Melbourne was a complex and varied mix. Rugby is an international game. You have a lot of people that have been starved for it in this town - expats both from interstate and from New Zealand, South Africa, the UK, even France and other parts of Europe where rugby's popular." Gray said there was also strong support from the local south Pacific island community, which has fielded many top players, and local clubs. "In Victoria there's the south Pacific island community, some of the state schools play rugby, most of the private schools play.". Crown Casino continues to back sport, having recently sponsored the NRL's Melbourne Storm.

Adelaide SkyCity Casino Feels Some Pain...

The popular casino's pre-tax earnings climbed to $16.1 million as its owner predicted subdued future trading. Sky City's half year profit fell 2.2% to $51 million ($NZ67.1 million) and chief executive Nigel Morrison said a quiet retail environment would impact on gaming revenue in Adelaide as it works with the State Government on developing the Riverfront precinct. Adelaide Casino lifted revenue by just $500,000 to $74.4 million but pre-tax earnings climbed 5.6 per cent to $16.1 million in the six months to December 31 thanks to "good cost controls and food and beverage revenue", Morrison said. Smoking bans in Darwin impacted on Australian casino earnings which fell 2% to $NZ47.2 million. The economic environment in this country remained challenging, particularly in discretionary retail, while the Australian discretionary retail sector was now also reporting more challenging times, Morrison said. Normalised net profit climbed 2.1% to $51 million after adjusting for comparisons without its divested cinemas group, the company said. Normalised revenue from ordinary activities rose 3.1 per cent on a year earlier to $NZ410.1 million.
An interim dividend of 8c a share has been declared. Gamblers from the orient - China and Thailand into the company's Auckland casino boosted the company's international business division, which almost doubled revenue to $1.1 billion. That growth underpinned the decision to invest in increased capacity and world class facilities for international customers in Auckland, Sky City said. Sky City reiterated its full year profit guidance to $96.1 million. Talks with the South Australian government on the proposed Adelaide Casino redevelopment and casino regulatory reforms were continuing, Morrison said. "We continue to stress the importance of a level playing field in respect of casino regulation and believe in the potential of the Adelaide market to deliver strong growth should some of the current challenges be adequately addressed," the company said. Sky City shares are trading steady at $2.49.

Sky City New Zealand And Australia Half Yearly Profits Drop...

The economic slowdown in New Zealand and Australia has led to a fall in half-year profit at casino operator Sky City Entertainment Group. The company made $67.1 million in the six months to December, a decrease of 6% on the same period a year ago. Stripping out a contribution from its now sold cinema operations, the listed company's underlying profit rose 2% to $67.4 million. Revenue rose 3% to $448 million, with growth in Adelaide and Hamilton partly offseting a fall at Darwin due to the introduction of a smoking ban.
Sky City chief executive Nigel Morrision says earnings at its flagship Auckland casino remained flat, as the subdued economy deterred local gamblers, although turnover doubled from high rollers, mainly from Asia. He says revenue rose 9% for the first six weeks of this year compared with the same period a year ago. Looking ahead, Sky City expects a full year profit of $127.4 million, compared with last year's normalised profit of $129 million.
A dividend payout of 8 cents a shares has been declared. Media Man analysts were not prepared to comment on what the financial position the firm would likely to be in come end of year results.

PartyGaming, PartyCasino, Bwin Do Deal With Las Vegas Land Based Casinos, by Greg Tingle - 15th February 2011

PartyGaming, the Gibraltar based iGaming powerhouse, is understood to have signed at least two major agreements to supply a gaming platform for online poker (and perhaps casino) to whale size Las Vegas land based casinos.

The Vegas casinos that Media Man and Gambling911 insiders hint are in the mix include MGM, Las Vegas Sands, Boyd Gaming and Caesars (former Harrahs Entertainment). It's unlikely a Donald Trump casino is in, as he's just sold at least one of his establishments. Trump is a fan of online casinos, but leaks say he is frustrated by what appears to be slow progress of igaming into mainstream America.

PartyGaming left the US after the UIGEA bill became law and a settlement towards $300 million was made with the DOJ (Department Of Justice).

The firm smartly snatched the opportunity to re-enter the US market if online gambling was ever legalized.

PartyGaming, which has now merged with Bwin, an Austrian based outfit is now ideally positioned to become a major force in the US, having also conducted b2b with other nations government departments, and has many a U.S senator and lawmaker on side, not to mention poker and casino associations and players.

Legalized online gambling in the US is tipped to be just around the corner, as legislators will provide a bill to congress for a vote.

Pro gambling groups and switched on politicians who can see the financial benefits are pushing hard for PartyGaming and a number other iGaming brands to go above board in the United States.

Party enjoys strong presence in the U.S (and Canada and Australia), with its Hollywood titles including Marvel Entertainment tie ins, plus the World Poker Tour brand which it owns and operates, and frequently gets airtime on television broadcasts in much of the western world. It's now or never for PartyGaming, and our leaks tell us its now, no bluff!

Readers, as always, bet with your head, not over it, and have fun.

Aussie James Packer Riding Wave Of Success, by Greg Tingle - 11th February 2011

G'day everyone. As if you didn't hear, Australian gambling and news media tycoon, James Packer, and a number of his friends and associates are riding a tidal wave of success, despite concerns about the Australian economy. Packer still looks to have the Midas touch, and his casino and gaming ventures continue to perform well, despite challenges in Australia by competitor Star City (Tabcorp) and in the Asia Pacific (Venetian Macao - Las Vegas Sands Corp.) Packer mate Shane Warne is in love with the 'Hurley Burley', Sting jumps aboard a Packer yacht, Neil Perry's teams up with Starlight Foundation at Rockpool via Burswood Casino aka Burwood Entertainment Complex, and much more. Media Man and Gambling911 with your Aussie round up JP - Crown Limited Style. All aboard the Packer Express...

Sting And Mates Do James Packer's Boat In Sydney...

Sting (Gordon Sumner), not the pro wrestling superstar, is lapping it up down under enjoying party time on on James Packer's luxury boat. Older readers will remember that String used to be the frontman of 'The Police'. JP's boat has in recent days been spotted off Sydney's northern beaches in Pittwater. JP and wife were not seen. Sting's wife Trudi Styler was also MIA, understood to be in the UK. Sting and a bush tucker bag of his mates were having a hell of a party on the vessel, and its understood some of his old band members were on board. Sting also enjoyed taking in the summer at Bondi Beach in Sydney's eastern suburbs.

Packer's Burswood Raisers Big Bucks with Perry's Rockpool; Western Australia Shows The World...

Neil Perry's Starlight Foundation Fundraiser at Rockpool in Perth on Wednesday evening was a rip snorter with Packer present and giving of heart and spirit. JP said that would like to have super chef Perry cook more juicy steaks for him, and what do you know - $100,000 appears, and Bob's your uncle - home cooking at the Packer pad. It's a miracle! In a glitzy and power persons event which raised up to $400,000 all told for sick kids, WA billionaires Gina Rinehart (richest person in Australia) and Andrew "Twiggy" Forrest (mining king and face of GenerationOne) also generously donated $100,000 to have the Sydney-based Perry cook for them and their 9 lucky guests in their very own homes. The happening was the official opening of the Rockpool WA restaurant, following the Melbourne launch we understand. Guests were happy to pay $1,000 for the world class, 3 course plus dinner. Perry was happy to make a speech and mentioned how Perth people had embraced his new restaurant and said that there had been no cynicism from the public. "What an amazing result for the Starlight Children’s Foundation - Perth should be proud of its generosity tonight. "With three healthy kids of my own, I have been a passionate and active supporter of the Starlight Children’s Foundation for 22 years. Anything I can do to alleviate the pain and stress that these kids go through by using my name is a fair trade," he said. It's understood Perry is very appreciative of Packer, Forrest, Rinehart and the news media who have covered his ventures in a fair and balanced capacity. Give yourselves all a pat on the back, and we will keep Rockpoool and Starlight Foundation front of mind. Good show.

Shane Warne Poker Her Celeb Does Melbourne With Hurley Burley; Coffee Table, Not Bed!...

Yesterday the Warnie-Hurley has been doing Melbourne, with various sightings around the city. Warne may not have hit the sweet spot at Crown Casino Aussie Millions in terms of results, but his spin and sleight of hand sure seems to be working a charm with liz. A "sexy" lunch spot was a key goal. Ok fellas, you can guess what the other goal may have been. No explanation needed hey. Tweeting to his 320,000 Twitter followers earlier that he was looking for venue suggestions, Shane Warne chauffeured Liz 'Hurley' (affectionate) Hurley to an exclusive Melbourne golf club owned by ex Crown Casino boss Lloyd Williams, in tow by a swag of paparazzi and media choppers. The couple had enjoying Warne's Brighton mansion for about 40 hours since Hurley landed down under Tuesday evening. The ex spinner on reports of a new mattress being delivered to his house before her arrival via Twitter "Ps for the record - my so called big delivery to my house was not a mattress it was a coffee table, sorry to disappoint !" Thursday morning the Twitter followed with "Where is the sexiest place to take Elizabeth for lunch? Suggestions please? Chapel St? Crown? And no - not for spaghetti on toast". Warnie ended up driving to Capital Golf Club in Heatherton, a stones throw from Brighton, in a black Merc with tinted out windows, as you might expect. The Peter Thomson-designed course in Melbourne's southeast is a world class destination that has hosted celebs including Tiger Woods, who played practice rounds there ahead of the Australian Masters the past couple of years. Warne later tweeted about the photogs around his car. "Apologies to anyone driving on the rd & witnessing the ridiculous behavior by irresponsible photographers trying to get a pic !!!!!,. Ps I'm not complaining by the way, but I fear that someone could seriously get hurt on the rd as the photographers are so irresponsible." Media Man and friends are well aware of the bad and downright atrocious behavior of some photographers and paps, and that may be covered in a book just started to be talked about by Sydney based photography and artist, Eva Rinaldi, who has also shown off her works at a number of Australian casinos over the years, with more forecast soon at both Packer's Crown and Sin City Sydney's Star City. Ah, the ongoing saga of celebs, art and Aussie casinos continue.

Packer Property Has Tasmanian Devils; No, Not David "Wicked" Walsh...

The Hunter Valley breeding program for the insurance population of Tasmanian Devils could have its first newborns by the end of this month. The initial colony of 50 carnivorous marsupials has settled in to their new environment only a month after arriving in the Barrington Tops. The response to a facial tumour decimating the native Tasmanian population is being conducted on a property owned by billionaire businessman, James Packer. Devil Ark operations manager, Tim Faulkner advised 3 female devils are in season and have started mating. "We've got devils that are potentially one-third of their way already through a 21 day gestation," he said. "So we could experience birthing in as little as 15 days. We won't know the results of that for a couple of months because whilst the joeys are so small and the females are in a vulnerable state. So we won't do a pouch check maybe until June and at that point hopefully we've got a lot of babies." The Tasmanian Devils survived the Hunter Valley's recent heatwave. Faulkner says the hot weather had little impact on the animals. "In that extraordinary heat that the whole east coast experienced we never broke 32 degrees up here," he said. "So for the devils, they didn't experience the heatwave. They can escape into a burrow, they're very clever animals they will swim and cool down. The paddocks the devils are in are heavily timbered, they're nocturnal, they're out of a night time and through the peak of the heat, they're underground.". You got to love the Packer - Tassie Devil connection, and David down in Tassie, we will get back to you down the track mate. Plenty of devils to go around down under.
