Harrah's Shuts Down U.K. Gambling Site

06 Mar 2005

Harrah"s Entertainment Inc. has suspended
the operations of an online gambling site based in the United
Kingdom after posting losses of $9.3 million last year.

The move marks the second time a Las Vegas casino giant
has tried and failed to tap into the lucrative Internet gambling
market.

The site, called Lucky Me, was
introduced in November 2003 for British bettors and was suspended
in October, the company disclosed Tuesday in its annual report to
shareholders.

The site was discontinued because
it was losing money, Harrah"s spokesman David Strow said.

Rather than the typical method of gambling for money, the
Web site allowed players to access as many games as possible --
with new games offered every seven-and-a-half minutes -- with a
monthly subscription. Gamblers paid from about $17 to $84 per month
for access to bingo and other games with cash prizes ranging from
$8.50 to $1.7 million.

Lucky Me featured an
identification process that prohibited bets from U.S. residents as
well as from other countries where Internet gambling is
prohibited.

The site was developed in
partnership with Revahertz Networks, a Boston-based, privately-held
software game developer that founded Gamesville, a games-for-prizes
site that was sold to the Internet search engine Lycos in
1999.

Harrah"s in January said it would dissolve
a partnership with Gala Group Ltd., a U.K. bingo hall operator, to
build casinos in Britain after lawmakers there significantly
restricted the number of casinos that can be built under a pending
gambling bill. The bill, in its present form, is expected to allow
up to eight Las Vegas-style resort casinos.

At
the time of the Gala deal, Harrah"s and other U.S. operators were
optimistic that more casinos would be legalized. But concerns about
problem gambling and a proliferation of neighborhood casinos led to
a more restrictive gambling bill than had been
anticipated.

Strow said the gambling bill and
legislative concerns didn"t factor into the decision to abandon the
Web site.

Similarly, MGM Mirage in 2003 shut
down a gambling Web site that catered to U.K. and European
customers. The site didn"t attract enough bettors because it
prohibited bets from U.S. bettors in order to comply with state and
federal laws against Internet gambling, MGM Mirage officials
said.

Many big gambling Web sites operate in a
legal gray area because they accept bets from Americans over the
objections of the U.S. Department of Justice. These sites tend to
be profitable because the United States, which hasn"t prosecuted
online bettors, remains the biggest market for Internet
gambling.
