Leeds Invite Applications for Large Licence

Council chiefs will be kick-starting the processes to move forward with the awarding of a large casino licence in Leeds next week.
The council was granted the authority to award a large casino licence after a successful bid to the Government in 2006, and is now in the position to start the licensing process with a view to granting a licence in Leeds in under two years.
A report submitted to Leeds City Council’s executive board next week (Wednesday 10 March) will outline the processes and update members on the need to move forward on the matter.
A large casino has the potential to bring a substantial number of benefits to Leeds, including economic, financial and social benefits, and to assist in the economic regeneration of the city.
The council will follow through the legally complex licensing process, with the view to being in a position to award the licence towards the end of 2011.
Councillor Andrew Carter, Leader of council said:
“Leeds is the only core city to have been awarded this licence, and it will become a great asset to the city once in place. These casino licences were meant to deliver the greatest benefit to an area in terms of jobs and economic regeneration, and we remain confident that a large casino can still play a big part in the city's regeneration plans.

ICE 2012 Update

The Gardens in Summer
The ICE show has now come and gone again for another year, you may have seen in the newsletter that TCSJH decided that  as ICE was in its last year at Earls Court that we would do things a little differently.  Luke and Tracy  emulated the successfully format they have used in Vegas for several years. AAA (Access All Areas)

They chose the KensingtonRoof Gardens (owned by the Virgin Group and purchased by Richard Branson in 1986) which.
The idea is to give the customer an Experience from the moment they enter the venue until they leave.

If the customers used our transport from Earls Courts to our venue then that experience started at Earls Court in our VIP waiting lounge right outside Earls Courts main doors, they were then whisked away on our mini buses, (3) well they were once mini buses but all the seats had been ripped out and replaced with leather seats along with playstations and video screens to help ease the pain of the London traffic.

The other aim of the change of venue was to truly have a captive audience which was achieved as many of the customers who did attend never left until we had to ask them to leave politely.

The main interest from the UK customers was around our "INFINITY DEALER" and our "TABLET SOLUTION" coming to casinos near you very soon.

Interest was also shown for the SUPERNOVA Table Bonus system (progressive) which is also in the process of migrating to Roulette as well as all the card based games.  DAR (Double Action Roulette) was also a popular pull

The show was a success from the attendance figures (approx 1000) and hopefully they will be later turned in into sales later in the year, so a big well done from planning to execution to all those involved in the show, Of course the sales teams are backed up by the excellent support the engineers provide year to year  to the front line customers aided by logistics and the Stoke teams which make the sales pitches that much easier . We are all in it together and all play an important part in TCSJH

I may even have some pictures for future captions of the week

Staying Alive

Recently Sarah Currie did a Presentation on First Aid, those present felt that it was that good and the information would be of possible benafit to all of you out there (hopefully not)

So here it is, (Thanks Sarah)

The information below is basic, but if remembered, will enable you to know what to do in the case of an accident or emergency and may even save someone’s life.

There are four basic things to remember.

  1. D.R.A.B.

This acronym explains what you should do first when faced with an injured person

D is for Danger – make sure that the area is safe for you to approach the injured person.

R is for Response – Ascertain their state of consciousness, by talking, tapping their shoulder (remember they could be deaf)

A is for Airway – it may be that their airway is restricted, ease this by gently moving their jaw upward and forward.

B is for Breathing – Listen close to their mouths, and watch for the rise and fall of the chest.

Next steps:-

If the injured person is still breathing, put them in the recovery position and call the emergency services.

If they are not breathing, call the emergency services first and commence CPR (Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation)

Adult CPR – the non breathing person to be on the floor or hard surface. Interlock fingers with one hand on top of the other, place in the centre of the chest and with arms locked straight, leaning over the causality, do 30 compressions, then breathe 2 breaths into their mouth, with the head tilted back and their nose pinched closed. Compressions should be at a rate of two per second. Repeat until help arrives, or you are no longer able to physically continue.

Child CPR – Dependent on age/size of child. Babies and very small children, 5 breathes first, then 30 chest compressions with just two fingers, then 2 breaths. Larger/older children, same sequence, but with one hand only doing the chest compressions

  1. P.E.P

This acronym explains briefly what to do with a severe bleeding injury.

P is for Pressure - apply pressure to the wound to help stem the bleeding. If there is an embedded object in the wound, do not remove it but apply pressure either side of it.

E is for Elevation – raise the wounded area of the body above the heart area. This helps to restrict the flow of blood to the wound.

P is for Position put the injured in a position to combat the onset of shock which will is a result of heavy blood loss by lying them down, with their legs raised and keep them warm with a blanket or coats. And then call the emergency services.

  1. A.M. P.L.E.

This acronym explains briefly what you can do to assist the emergency services when they arrive by being ready with basic, but necessary information.

A is for Allergies – ask the casualty if they are allergic to anything

M is for Medication – ask if they are currently taking any medication and what for

P is for Past History – ask if they have any medical history that should be taken into account

L is for Last Meal – when did they last eat, how large was the meal – necessary information in case they need an aesthetic

E is for Event – ascertain if they actually know what happened to make them become injured, or did they just black out and come round injured

  1. EU = 112

112 is the EU equivalent to 999. You can call this number anywhere in the EU, including the UK, for free, from a payphone, a land line or a mobile. If a mobile is used, your location can be tracked via the GPS signal, in case you are unsure of your location, and the operator will be able to speak English
