Rosie’s Gaming Emporium opened doors on January 8. It is a 19,000-square-foot gaming center with 95 video slots, located in the Triangle Shopping Center in Dumfries. Colonial Downs, the property’s owner, now proposes another building, which is a massive $389 million casino resort on the grounds of Potomac Landfill, a debris junkyard on the edge of town.
The future facility would be called “The Rose” and would be the first in Virginia with this size, providing such gaming options.
According to the plan for “The Rose”, the facility will consist of 50,000 square feet of gaming space, a 250-seat sports bar, as well as other bars and restaurants, 200 hotel rooms, a theater with 1,500 seats and 7,000 square feet of meeting space.
Colonial Downs, which owns Rosie’s and operates a racetrack in New Kent County near Richmond, as well as four other Rosie’s emporiums across the state, will pitch its idea today during a 7 a.m. Dumfries Town Council meeting.
The new facility is hoped to bring a lot of profit to the town. It is expected to create 640 jobs that pay $15 an hour wage. 96 managers will be hired to work at The Rose and they will make an average of $70,000 a year.
According to Colonial Downs, the new casino would generate $11.3 million a year in new tax revenue for Prince William County and nearly $80,000 a year for Dumfries.
If the pitch is accepted, construction of the new casino will start in August this year, which means that Potomac Landfill will be closed 11 years earlier than planned.
The casino will take 22 acres of the property with 79 acres remaining that will be converted into a park with sports fields, trails and open space.
The town documents stated that the park would open in December 2022 and the casino would open only a month later. This is if everything goes according to plan.
The Potomac Landfill
The town agreed with the landfill in 2016 to close the facility. The closing date was set for 2032. At that time, the town planned on turning the site into a public park.
The problem for the landfill started in 2011 when the neighbors and drivers on the Interstate 95 complained of sulfur smell. It was permeated the surrounding area so the facility needed to shut down.
Rosie’s Gaming Emporium is the first gaming facility to open its doors in Northern Virginia. Since its opening, more than 21,000 people have visited the gaming parlor in the shopping center.
The property has donated more than $75,000 to charity since it started operating and has created 100 jobs for the locals. Its establishment was made possible by the legalization of gambling in Dumfries in November 2019.
A citywide referendum passed with more than 60% of the vote, following an extensive advertising campaign by Colonial Downs.

Glorious Guardians is going to be a joint title, from Ash Gaming and Playtech, one of the 2021 slot games that will be coming out from this developer. The base for this one comes from China and from its amazing creatures specifically. We see the concept both in its design and in its utilization of Twin Symbols during its major feature.Glorious Guardians gives 5×3 reels. The slot will settle up to 2,000x the stake through its fixed bonanzas. It’s major features are the Wild, free spins with Twin Symbols and scattersBetting and Prizes A few fixed bonanzas can be delivered by Glorious Guardians. These are the Mega Jackpot of 2,000x the stake, Major Jackpot of 200x the stake and Mini Jackpot of 50x the stake.Glorious Guardians Slot Features In spite of the fact that extremely basic for an uncommon feature, the Wild image is as yet going to have a significant effect over the long haul, and for some it might simply do what’s necessary to transform a losing meeting into a productive one. The manner in which it works is standard, as a substitute that you can utilize while framing new blends, given that you get different images which are required.The huge feature of Glorious Guardians will depend on the free spins however. When you get those set off, you will locate that the first and fifth reels will have coordinating images on them, with the guardians covering both. During the free spins, this can make it simpler to shape 5 image mixes of that kind.Theme and Design Obviously, there is a major spotlight on the creatures mentioned in the story of China and I love how Playtech and Ash Gaming managed it design wise. We’re taking a look at a background picture showing palaces and sculptures of these creatures on the two sides while the reels mark the outer reels with red and the center ones are kept separate.Images will give you pictures of the Royals at first, beautiful but standard choices in any case. You at that point proceed onward to images with the creatures (Dragons in green or gold, White Tigers, Phoenix Bird Turtles) and the feature triggers (Wild).ConclusionGlorious Guardian is generally a good slot machine with nice features, so you can try it out.

All about the lottery in UK.We all know that the lottery worldwide is known as a form of gambling, it involves the advantage of winning lots of prizes after purchasing a lottery ticket, a live draw takes place and the winning lotto numbers come out of a ball machine,
Did you know that lotteries were very common in the United States and other countries during the 19th century and by the start of the 20th century, most types of and forms of gambling, which included the lottery and sweepstakes, were made illegal in the U.S. and also most of Europe, not to mention the many other countries. The legalisation stayed the same until long after World War II ended. By the 1960s forms of gambling started to pop back up such as, casinos and lotteries started to re-appear throughout the world, this was done as a means for the governments to raise revenue without having to raise taxes.
The National Lottery in the United Kingdom is the state-franchised lottery. It is operated by an organisation called the Camelot Group, who obtained their licence in 1994, 2001, and then again in 2007.
The Lottery in the United Kingdom can be played in person by purchasing a ticket via a store/ supermarket or online. To play online, lotto players can head to playlottoworld to purchase a lotto ticket. 12% of the revenue generated from the National Lottery goes to the government, 5% goes to the lottery retailers who sell the lottery games, 5% is kept by Camelot Group for operating and admin costs.
The other ways that the money generated by the lottery is spent, 28% goes to various good causes and charities, this is the same for prizes that are unclaimed. The 50% remains for the total prize money. If a ticket or prize is unclaimed then The National Lottery holds all of the unclaimed prizes for a total of 180 days, then it gets dished out to different charitable societies.
The start of the Champions League features an intriguing matchup between La Liga’s Barcelona and Ligue 1’s Paris Saint-Germain.
Both teams feature among the best strikers in the sport: Lionel Messi is second in La Liga with 15 goals this season, while PSG’s Kylian Mbappe ranks first in Ligue 1 with 16. Whoever performs better on Tuesday could set their club up for success in the first leg of the Round of 16.
But soccer is a team sport, and it will take more than Messi and Mbappe to secure victory in Tuesday’s match. In that sense, Barcelona may be playing the best it has all season, taking a seven-game La Liga win streak into its match vs. PSG; it has also won three of its last four games in the Copa Del Rey, though it did lose its last match to Sevilla on Wednesday.PSG is playing inspired recently as well, taking a three-game Ligue 1 win streak into its match vs. Barcelona, as well as wins in the Coupe de France and Trophee des Champions.Here’s everything you need to know about the opening match of the Champions League, including time, TV channel, streaming info and more:MORE: Watch Barcelona vs. PSG live with fuboTV (7-day free trial)What channel is Barcelona vs. PSG on today?Cable subscribers can watch Barcelona vs. PSG on CBS Sports Network or on the streaming service CBS All Access (which will soon rebrand as Paramount+).

Foremost, scouting reports on Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Justin Jefferson were primarily credible. It would be fallacious to assert that Jefferson was an untapped gem. The only oddity in the aftermath of the 2020 season is that Henry Ruggs III, Jerry Jeudy, CeeDee Lamb, and Jalen Reagor were chosen in the draft ahead of Jefferson.
Why? Because Jefferson – as has been widely broadcast – set the NFL rookie record for receiving yards with 1,400. He was also chipped in seven touchdowns. The closest rookie to Jefferson in the yards metric was Lamb who fell short of the rookie-yard mark by 465 yards. And to be fair, fellow first-year wideout, Chase Claypool, pulled down two more touchdowns than Jefferson.
Other than that, the Vikings selection of Jefferson was a 500-foot homerun. By midseason, the 21-year-old was the team’s WR1. He was forcing Vikings enthusiasts to channel memories of Randy Moss in 1998 (minus the gobs of touchdowns).
Jefferson is also affable. To date, he has shown no diva-like qualities and even goes out of his way to exhibit inverse vibes. He was congratulatory of Justin Herbert for winning the meaningful version of the Rookie of the Year award. In a solemn manner, Jefferson seems like a “locker room guy.”
So, what did the scouts get wrong? There is a lot, but here are some of the biggies.
“Could Be Better Off as WR”
This one is comical because the opposite of the proclamation became evident early on.
Among seven weaknesses of Jefferson’s game, Walter Football declared that the LSU pass-catcher might be best served as a complementary piece to a true-blue WR1.
This is the full casserole of Jefferson supposed weaknesses per Walter Football:• Not a burner• May lack deep speed for the NFL• Leaner frame• May not be a big separation receiver• Could be better off as a No. 2 receiver• Could stand to fill out his frame• Should add strength
The “Could be better off as a No. 2 recevier” knock on Jefferson is laughable because he was targeted more than any other rookie since 2015 – and emphatically answered the call. He commanded 125 targets – which might have been too low – while setting an NFL record.
Jefferson can handle the WR1 title. It took about three weeks for the world to learn this.
“Dominated the Slot…”
Oh, yes, the insult thrown at pre-2019 Stefon Diggs is in full effect here. A “slot” guy was the most boisterous criticism of Jefferson’s skill set before he joined the NFL. He played alongside oodles of talent in LSU, so folks presumed he was maybe an overhyped slant sultan. Wrong.
This one was cooked up by Bleacher Report. And again, in fairness, sometimes players just rapidly improve or mature. Such was the case with Jefferson.
Matt Miller of Bleacher Report wrote this of Jefferson’s potential shortcomings:• Dominated from the slot in an offense loaded with offensive weapons in 2019.• Tape makes you question his ability to create space on his own.• Almost no experience against press coverage.• Drops show up a decent amount on his tape, enough to be a concern.
Jefferson led the entire NFL in 25+ yard receptions in 2020. That’s right – more than deep-ball artists like Tyreek Hill, DeAndre Hopkins, and D.K. Metcalf. Jefferson grabbed 16 catches of 25 yards or more.
If this is the prognosis of slot-only pass-catchers, well, more men should focus on slot assignments in college. It bodes well for NFL performance. Deep-ball prowess was no problem for Jefferson in 2020. He flat-out stretched the field.
“Technique as a Route Runner Could Use Cleaning Up”
Along with Jerry Jeudy early on in the pandemic season, Jefferson’s route-running was not suspect. In fact, it was applauded. Onlookers were awed at seamlessness on display as Jefferson did not provide one iota of route-running deficiency – especially for a player that replaced the departed-to-Buffalo Diggs. On the field, Jefferson and Diggs resembled each other for route-running acumen, and Diggs is a route-running demigod. And remember – Jefferson is 21 years old. Diggs is a wide receiver in the prime of his career, six years the senior of Jefferson.
One cannot struggle with route-running and snag 1,400 receiving yards. The two assertions are incongruent.
This is what DraftWire said of Jefferson’s rooms for improvement:
“While Jefferson proved to be capable of separating at the collegiate level, one has to wonder how much of that was related to scheme. He’s a good athlete, but his technique as a route runner could use some cleaning up. His footwork can be a little sloppy at times, and he can struggle to sink his hips into his breaks and make sharp cuts.”
These are falsehoods.
Ted Williams wanted to be known as the Greatest Hitter Who Ever Lived, and he made an excellent case to own that moniker. His 1941 season was when he officially put the baseball world on notice that his skill with a bat would be hard to match, in large part because of his season-long chase to finish with a batting average of .400 or higher, which hadn’t been done in the AL at that point since 1923. Heading into the season’s final stretch, The Sporting News was among the many news outlets watching with awe and anticipation to see whether Williams, then 22 years would, would remain at or above the hallowed mark at season’s end. He did, of course, finishing the season at .406. In the Oct. 9, 1941, edition of The Sporting News, writer Jack Malaney recounted the late surge that propelled Williams over the .400 mark on the season’s final day.
Original publish date: October 9, 1941
Thumping Ted tags all bases for .406Could have sat out to protect average, but refusedBy Jack MalaneyBOSTON, Mass. — Though the Red Sox long since has clinched second place and could not go any higher, interest in the final week of the scheduled games was as keen as it had been in any week of the season. And as high as it had been all week, it reached its peak Sunday, September 28, the final day of the American League season. Teddy Williams was the reason!Every member of the Sox from Owner Tom Yawkey down to the batboy and clubhouse attendants, every baseball writer in Boston, and we say without fear of contradiction, every baseball fan in New England, was pulling for Teddy to finish the season batting .400 or better.TSN ARCHIVES: Mike Schmidt | Ken Griffey Jr.He did, unless the unofficial figures are off. But he had a narrow escape, and he had to make six hits in eight times at bat in the double-header played on the final day to get where he finished — .4057, which will be recorded as .406.When that double-header at Shibe Park started, Teddy was batting .3995, and that would not have been .400, if it had been his final mark. He had lost a little more than six points in four games, and it was the first time he had been under .400 since July 24.Ted had left Boston a week before that final game possessing a mark of .406. There remained three games at Washington and a like set a Philadelphia.The three games at Griffville threw him for a loss. He made only two hits in ten times at bat. That Washington park, with its long, spacious right field territory, is a tough one for Williams.There were a couple of off-days and then play was resumed at Philadelphia, September 27. Connie Mack had brought up a young righthanded knuckle-ball pitcher from Wilmington named Roger Wolff and sent him against the Sox in the first game. Teddy saw knuckle-balls every time he went to bat and the best he could get was one hit in four times at bat. That was when he fell below .400.There was tenseness in the Sox quarters on Sunday morning. Would Teddy be able to come back and regain that lost ground? Would he be stulted by other young pitchers attempting to make an impression? Would he play out the string if he managed to get up over the .400 mark?He answered all the questions and he answered that last one first. He would stay in the game and in the lineup to the bitter end, even if his last couple of times at bat dropped him to .398. He was adamant about that and Skipper Joe Cronin back him up, although Joe declared he was willing that Williams should protect his mark, if he so desired. Ted did not so desire.It did not take long after the first game of the double-header started to relieve everybody’s mind. Teddy got a single his first time up, a homer over the right field wall the next and then two more singles in successive times at bat. He finally failed to make a hit his fifth time up, although reaching first on an error and no attempt was made to change the miscue and credit him with a hit. It was a plain, everyday error.When that game was over, Ted was well above .400. he had nothing to worry about, because he could go hitless in four more times at bat and still be over .400 and there was little chance he would go four times at bat. It was almost sure to be too dark to complete the second game and that was true.However, Ted mad hits in his first two times up in the nightcap, the second of which was a terrific double that cut a hole in the loud speaker horns which hang from the top of the right-center field wall at Shibe Park. So he made doubly sure of his position.
It was one of the finest exhibitions of batting Philadelphia fans have seen in a long time. Later on, Boston writers were asked if Ted got real legitimate hits, or did the Philadelphia pitchers lay it in for him to wallop? The Philadelphia pitchers did not attempt to prevent Teddy from hitting by deliberately passing him or keeping the ball so far away or so far inside that he would not be able to get hold. But they did NOT toss the ball up to him. They pitched, and hit as few others can hit.Teddy was as delighted as a child with a new toy at having accomplished what so few other great batters have been able to do. He was the first American leaguer to bat .400, or better, since Harry Heilmann did the trick in 1923, when Teddy was a kid of five. Ted is the youngest man ever to do the stunt in the Big Show, also, and there are those who believe he is only starting as a great batter.As delighted as Ted was, Tom Yawkey was equally pleased. The fact that Ted, as a .400 batter, will be able to demand a higher salary next year than if he did not make it, did not disturb Yawkey. If Tom had his way, he would have four or five .400 batters and all would be paid their due. That’s the kind of baseball sportsman he is.
