Have you been missing our updates on interesting stuff that goes around in the gambling and casino world?! We are back with a full platter, bringing you a piping hot pot of juicy stories.

Our dear old Lex ‘RaSZi’ Veldhuis was recently not in the best of health with concerns of heart issues that had devastated his fans. But the Dutch pro has bounced back, and he has lady luck and lady love to credit for his recovery. This will most likely despair his female admirers since Veldhuis is now off the single market and engaged!

However, things don’t seem to be going all too well for MGM Resorts. The casino giant, along with its new partner, American football team, New York Jets were publicly shammed for MGM’s decision to sue victims of last year’s mass shooting at Route 91 Harvest Festival. Reportedly, an airplane flew over the MetLife Stadium with a banner which read, and we quote, “Shame on Jets/MGM. #EndGunViolence#StopMGM.”

Nevertheless, there has been enough debate on the Gun control laws in America and an incident that grabbed our attention was a horrific gun crime that took place over a gambling feud in Memphis, where an 18-year-old was caught after shooting six young men. Four of them survived while two lost their lives.

Go ahead and read it all for yourself…

After going through extensive medical tests, it came out that the collapse was related to stress and fatigue. He returned to his Twitch channel and streamed on November 13.

Veldhuis kept his followers updated on each step and finally broke the news of his engagement.

Since Veldhuis has gone ahead and got engaged, he does seem right back on track. All’s well that ends well, we’d say.
