NJ sports book news

Re: NJ sports book news

Well, on the flip side, though, if Massachusetts and Connecticut bettors perhaps can get better numbers, credit, and no currency transaction and/or tax paperwork and tracking with their local . . . .
A lot of people just aren’t comfortable with locals. And rightfully so in this day and age.

Re: NJ sports book news

Rhode Island did sign their "venue-limited" sports betting into law.

There are lots of signs that RI will fall far short of their revenue goals (ridiculous estimates that could be called "political fantasy" .. LOL). Start date isn't until October 1, 2018.

It will be very hard for IGT to underperform the scumbags at Cantor Gaming who had one employee convicted of a federal crime, their President forced to resign, having to cease "in-progress" wagers because of incompetent bookmaking, and not even being able to correctly compute parlay payouts.

I wouldn't worry about IGT's risk management, they have way more experience in gaming than CGT and RI's handle will probably be miniscule compared to most books in Nevada.
Going back and looking this, I think you are way off on the handle in RI.

When it first opens, the handle will be very high.. much higher than the average book in Vegas. There is a huge sports betting market in Boston and providence. It’s bookies and gambling galore. The local casinos are always packed.

The handle that they will be getting from neighboring states ma and ct will be huge.

Now once ct and mass get it legalized, most likely in early 2019, Rhode Island handle will be bad cause those other states will do it much better.

I can understand that. I could have just bet down at my favorite sports bar back in Baton Rouge, but I flew out here then and then moved out here in 2003. But given that I worked for a federal court, the prospect of getting caught up -- even indirectly -- in a bookie bust was not a good downside risk.

So it will be interesting to see how it all plays out in the various jurisdictions. I'm not ready to count locals and offshores out just yet here in the early going. Hopefully, at the very least, the presence of that sort of competition will keep the legal books somewhat honest with their pricing, etc.

Didn’t mean it like that. Just think he’s a little off pertaining to handle considering RI will have a monopoly on legal sports betting in New England for this coming football season. Everyone and their moms will be lining up to bet the patriots
 
Re: NJ sports book news

ballys's & harrahs (caesars ) , golden nugget, resorts ( draftkings ) put their paperwork in . I don't know if Hard Rock ( Bet365 ) beat the deadline for 2018.


still on the outside : atlantic city has until 2020 to open, freehold and garden state are given a small shot . These 3 have little agreements with the state of NJ.


Tropicana not giving out any info yet. I don't know if they met the NJ deadline in 2018 which already past. I think there is a sale with eldorado that is holding it up.


All of this info is for N.J. outs.
 
Re: NJ sports book news

Has anyone recently stayed at the borgata and bet sports there for a few days? Been a while since i been at borgata and the fact that you could bet sports there with straight cash seems enticing like in vegas.


But as of now, all wagers 1k or more have to be approved right?

Re: NJ sports book news

william hill vegas & william hill monmouth end up with the same #'s but monmouth are a little slower getting there. I guess beating them in can get you chased.

Yes, I'm there a lot but haven't bet more than $200 on a game so idk what the policy is on wagers over a dime.

Yes. That's true, but it is not a time consuming practice. Much like a BJ dealer calling out action. I was behind a guy who made 3 bets for 1100 each-- and the clerk just called it out-- Guy nodded, she ran the tickets.

I can't wait for football. It's going to be sooo much fun down there.

Have to present a players card to bet a dime at Will Hill.
 
Re: NJ sports book news

Meanwhile at MGM Mississippi, with Micah's reaction:

Micah Roberts‏ @MicahRoberts7 3h3 hours ago

Both MGM Resorts sports books in Tunica and Biloxi, Mississippi are targeting Sunday, July 22 to start taking sports wagers. Training for ticket writers underway. This is great stuff! Exciting.
We love football in the south, especially college. Can not wait to visit Biloxi this fall. Atmosphere gonna be electric.
 
Re: NJ sports book news

From @GoldboxATL on twitter:


Many of the bettors are going home tonight with tickets in hand, including me. @FanDuel Meadowlands didn’t have cash in the draws to payout. Amateur hour here. @GUnit_81 @andrewssports @JimmyVaccaro @beatingthebook @paulyhoward @MitchMossRadio @VSiNVinny @VSiNLive

Re: NJ sports book news

I guess people myself included quick to jump on them after their inauspicious start..they will need to rethink this policy. Its not like Vegas where many just wake up and walk down to the book in the am to cash out..There are a lot of day trippers etc that will be turned off by having to return or get paid via mail.

Re: NJ sports book news

Bally's and harrahs opening the 30th and 1st of august


unibet from the UK coming to new jersey. Where will they be located ??? perhaps eldorado resorts ( the old tropicana ) ???
 
Re: NJ sports book news

note: New Jersey is permitted up to 3 online sports sites per sportsbook. Does that mean 3 sets of lines per book ??? It could with software. Who knows , too early to tell. Look for the 1st app within the next 2 weeks.
 
Re: NJ sports book news

since unibet is coming to NJ this football season , looking at ESPN they are showing unibet's NFL lines to be dealing about a couple of pennies off the normal -110.

keep an eye on them , they will be going to more states.
 
Re: NJ sports book news

I remember when Vegas books were opened 24 hours during football weekends. My last trip was thanksgiving weekend a few years ago. Most if not all books were closed late night, opened 7am.
 
Re: NJ sports book news

Unibet coming to NJ. that is the good part. I went on their website for NCAA football 24 cent vig . They said they were going to many states. Got to set up a picket line .


or just say no.
