While the 2016 Formula One season may be on its summer break, things are still heating up. Formula One is making headlines with a driver line change at the Manor team and the CVC shareholders are looking for a buyout.
Renault’s reserve driver Esteban Ocon has replaced Rio Haryanto at the Manor Racing Team. The 19-year old replaced Haryanto, who was signed at the end of the 2015 season but has since lacked secure financial backing.
Haryanto’s main sponsors were Pertamina, a state-owned Indonesian oil company, and the Indonesian Government. Both sponsors managed to finance sufficient funds for Haryanto to race the first half of the season but were struggling to raise sufficient funds to keep the driver going.
Ocon will make his debut at the Belgian Grand Prix on August 28, 2016, when the season resumes for the second half of the year. Haryanto will take on the reserve role at the team.
Dave Ryan, Race Director said that they are confident when Esteban makes his debut in Spa, they will have a very potent line-up with the chance to fight with immediate competitors for the rest of the season.
In other news, CVC Capital Partners who paid $2 Billion in 2006 to buy Formula One is looking to exit the investment. At the time of the purchase, it was not the greatest for the firm, however, the deal has turned out to be rather profitable.
It has been suggested that CVC Capital Partners has made about $4.5 Billion on its initial stake. This has turned out to be a 450% return. Should the sale go through within weeks, CVC who has 35% of the stake could possibly walk away with a return of eight times its original investment.

After months of delay, New South Wales Planning Assessment Commission (PAC) has finally approved James Packer’s $2 billions Crown Barangaroo Casino Tower. This elegant signature building will be Sydney’s second casino and will offer some spectacular views.
After some concerns expressed by the community, local councils and design profressionals, the NSW Department of Planning requested a number of changes to be made to the original proposal. These recommendations included reducing the size of the podium that house the 271 metre tower, making the observation deck on the 65th floor open to the public, reducing the size of the licensed ground floor area of the hotel, conducting a lighting survey to evaluate the impact of the nearby Sydney Observatory, and restricting the operating hours on the ground floor and outdoor area of the hotel.
At first Crown Resorts were a little reluctant to the reduction of the podium, they managed to work out all the recommendations and fully compile with them. Crown Resorts and PAC managed to come to a final mutual agreement. Construction will be able to begin as soon as the NSW Government gives the go ahead.
The Barangaroo Casino Tower is expected to be open by 2021. It is expected to be a six-star hotel, with more than 300 rooms, suites, apartments, shops, bars, VIP gaming rooms, and conference facilities.
Iceland is in the process of re-writing their very own sporting history books as they progressed to the knock out stages of the Euro 2016.
The team booked their spot in the knockout stages on Wednesday, 22 June 2016 after they defeated Austria 2-1. A stoppage-time winner awarded Iceland the well-deserved victory.
It is the first appearance for Iceland at a major football tournament, and they are the smallest nation to ever qualify for the championships. They are expected to meet England in their first knockout match.
Austria entered the game against Iceland after a defeat against Hungary and a draw against Portugal. They were in great hope to pull off the victory against Iceland, but it was not meant to be. Austria have failed to make it through the opening stages of a major tournament since 1982.
Iceland finished second in group F with 5 points, behind Hungary who clinched the top spot on goal difference. Portugal who finished in third place in group f, will also advance to the knockout stages as one of the best third place teams.
If Iceland manage to up their vibrant team spirit may be able to give England a tough time. However, regardless of the outcome with England, Iceland will certainly have plenty to celebrate.
As if we couldn’t spread our passion enough in June, we will sure be spreading it in July. Only this time we will be spreading with not only a new pokie, but one that features a brand new game functionality.

The 47th annual World Series of Poker (WSOP) kicked off in style with the first of its 69 scheduled tournaments for the summer.
The first event was the Casino Employee Championship. This event is a $565 buy-in No-Limit tournament played over two days and nights. The event took place at the Rio Casino in Las Vegas.
This saw Christopher Sand, better known as CJ Sand, take home the first WSOP gold bracelet. Out of a whopping 731 entrants Sand managed to hold his poker face throughout the event to walk away with a $75,157 cash prize. CJ is currently employed as a sports book writer and cashier at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas.
This was Sand’s first ever WSOP-related victory and it was the biggest cash prize of his tournament career as a player. It was only his second-time to cash in the WSOP after managing to finish in-the-money at 2015’s famed “Colossus I” tournament.
The win for this tournament alone amounted to nearly a four-fold increase over his entire career prize money earnings. The 45-year old’s career prize money is now sitting close to six figures.
The Casino Employee Championship is intended to honour the dedication of millions employees who work with the casino industry. The American Gaming Association has suggested that more than 1.7 million jobs have been created within the gaming industry, which is one of the largest, even higher than the number of employees within the airline industry.
