Perhaps you meant DGE? And fwiw, Lesniak's assertions that Stars would have been in NJ last Fall but for Christie are silly -- it takes a really, really long time to vet licensure applicants, and...read more

I have come to suspect that while Christie is definitely the reason it took so long, that he is also participant in the eventual launch. He may be wanting for RAWA to self-destruct so that his banker...read more

I agree as well.  Nasdaq is a given but NJ would be a real big catalyst for a higher price.  One thing for sure there is a lot of news coming in next 6 months.  Caveat is how much is Christie in back...read more

Great points river. There is NO way that Amaya entered the bidding without full support of the large investors. So any concern about debt or other points is really moot. They have already calculated...read more

They are not buying bwin in its entirety. Amaya is only contributing cash for the portion they are buying so we don't have to worry about equity dilution. Based on the other deals Amaya has done, I'm...read more
