The Early Years

Gonzales held a press conference yesterday to question his opponent's trustworthiness and ask voters if they really wanted to elect a fired Precinct 7 lieutenant who joined her husband in allegedly using charity money intended for children and old people to screw around on slot machines. Trevino denied each allegation in a statement released Wednesday evening, calling the allegations "baseless.

According to the gambling records, the Trevinos' weekend getaways to the Lake Charles, Louisiana casino date back to at least Fraud investigators found that the Trevinos would show up at the Lake Charles casino and start hitting the slots just hours after cashing these CARE checks in Houston. Silvia, however, never faced any criminal charges. But she did face a different set of consequences in — for mouthing off at superiors at Precinct 7.

And apparently crying a lot. In her statement, Trevino also denied all of Walker's accusations in the termination letter, instead accusing Walker of retaliating against her. In , Walker faced her own criminal investigation for election law violations and allegedly depositing money citizens paid to get fingerprinted into her campaign war chest, and Trevino said she testified against her to a grand jury. Walker was no-billed on all charges. Instead, he moved to Switzerland to attend the Swiss Hotel Management School, as it was his hope to become a caterer.

He enjoyed most of his classes, as they were all very hands-on. Still, he couldn't get himself to attend them on a regular basis, so he was eventually kicked out of the program. His backup plan was to move to Spain to become a real-estate agent. He got the proper training for the job and even sold a few houses for a decent profit. Things were looking promising for Chandler until he received a phone call informing him that his father had a very aggressive cancer.

He immediately packed his bags and headed for home; his father passed away shortly after he arrived. Chandler moved back home to take care of his mother and 2 younger sisters, who were still in high school at the time. He agreed to take over the family business, even though it was in serious financial trouble. After about two years of cutting back expenses and looking for ways to expand the company, Chandler was ready to quit.

He received an offer from Hugh Hefner's Playboy Enterprises but backed out of the deal last minute, as he didn't think it was enough money to justify selling his father's business. He decided to persevere, and soon enough, BetVictor slowly but surely started to pick up more clients.

Speaking of debts, one of the most difficult aspects of his job was collecting the debts that were owed to him. Chandler was known for allowing punters to place any size bet they wanted, which meant they would sometimes lose hundreds of thousands of dollars at a time.

Occasionally, those who owed him money would flee to avoid paying up on their debts. On several different instances, Chandler was forced to pay a private investigator to hunt those clients down. He looked into a variety of different countries, including Antigua, Guernsey, and Jersey before finally settling on Gibraltar.

Chandler explained his decision by saying, "Cyril Stein [of Ladbrokes] told me there was floating license in Gibraltar with the number Ladbrokes had license I came and bought it because I thought it had value. He bought the license in and had the company completely moved over there just 3 short years later. Once in Gibraltar, BetVictor really started to take off.

Other bookmakers saw his success and decided to follow in his footsteps, moving their companies offshore as well. When Gordon Brown was elected into office in , he abolished the tax in hopes that those companies would move back. Unfortunately for him, not many of them did. It was around this time that the internet started to increase in popularity, causing Chandler to wonder how it would impact his business. Thank you for your review. The Victory II isn't sailing at all anymore.

We hope you can visit us on the Victory I in Port Canaveral sometime. Took the Victory Cruise out of Cape Canaveral many of times and each time enjoyed it immensely.

Happen to catch the one used out of Jacksonville and couldn't believe the difference. Much smaller, a lot less machines, a lot of dead space and not much We have been on the cape canaveral victory cruise ship and it is bigger with more slots and so much nicer.

Had always wanted to do the Jacksonville cruise and glad we did but won't go back. We saw one cocktail waitress the whole time The ship consists of 3 decks: On the day we sailed, as it was not too crowded, table games Four of us took the cruise as part of an office Christmas party.

It sounded like a great idea and evening out. When we arrived we were given motion sickness medicine for "just-in-case". Everyone in my party took the pills and signed the waiver. On behalf of the management of Victory Casino Cruises, I would like to apologize that the weather resulted in this 1 star review.

On behalf of the management of Victory Casino Cruises, I would like to apologize that no one was able to reach you regarding the cancelled cruise. The cruise that you were scheduled to go on was cancelled for the safety of our guests. Staff was so so. Some where not real attentive.
