Possibly so. And more to the point, as you will soon see from this article, this time it could turn out to be the proverbial straw that broke the camel’s back. As you undoubtedly already know, the city of Las Vegas located in the western state of Nevada is considered to be the defacto center of casino action in the United States. Sure there are other states such as New Jersey with both land based and online casinos. Yet, the fact of the matter is that many continue to look to Las Vegas as a leader in the world of gambling.
With that in mind, what is going over in Las Vegas has many onle gambling observers paying close attention. Here’s what this is all about: what’s next? Or to be more precise, what is going to be next for the world of sports betting, especially online sports bets. At a time when even land based casinos are battling it out market share not to mention the new competition from online casinos from around the world it is not surprising that there is a strong motivation to find new revenue sources.
Of course you would have to been living in a cave high up in the mountains over the last few years to have missed the incredible rise of sports betting. Now throw in the even more popular and seemingly growing by the hour rise of fantasy sports betting, and you have a sense of what this ...

This latest development is coming straight from the State Legislature floor. What’s going on is this: it is starting to look like something like an event from a World Wresting Entertainment. You know, the venue where pro wrestlers have at it in an attempt to best the opponent. One feature unique to professional wresting events are what can best be described as a tag-team event. That is, when one wrestler is getting tired, his fellow team mate gives him a tag in. At the point, the other side is facing a fresh new opponent.
Anyway, all of the above aside, that is what the legislature floor in Pennsylvania is beginning to look like. Recall that only just recently one brave Senator stuck his neck out and introduced legislation to actually legalized online gambling and online casino action throughout the state. Since then, other state senators have in effect “tagged in” and joined the fight.
If you are keeping score at home, this session looks to be something of a knockout. Consider as of last count there are at least 5 bills that have been filed to date with some sort of online gambling legalization. Actually, the most recent bill filed on this matter looks to be the most comprehensive to date.
This latest bill was filed by a tag team of Senators Kim Ward, Robert Tomlinson, Elder Vogel and even the Senate President Joseph Scarnati. What is interesting about this newest online gambling legalization bill is that it completely ...

Or something else entirely? Perhaps you saw a mention of this recent news coming from the state of new Jersey. As you know, New Jersey is one of the few states in the country that have taken a proactive stance towards gambling, online casinos and the like. At the same time, you may not know that New Jersey also has what was until recently a thriving state lottery system.
What’s new and what has many gambling pundits scratching their collective heads is that it is beginning to look as if the casual lottery ticket buyer is simply choosing not to participate as much or even at all. Now do take note of the fact that this news is all about what is referred to in the industry as the so called “casual lotto player”. That is to say, the lotto ticket buyer who only ever plays this game of chance occasionally at best. In contrast, the regular lottery ticket buyer can be counted on to play on a somewhat regular basis. The point here is that the state counts on both ticket buyers when setting up the annual budget. Should large numbers of these lottery players lose interest, the resulting loss in revenue could become significant.
What is going on now is that the casual player seems to have lost interest in regular sized jackpots. No longer are $50 Million, $100 Million jackpots enough. You see, it looks as if those jackpot levels just no longer interest the casual ...

You may have heard the saying that goes around about the value of statistics. More or less, the saying sounds something like…”there are lies, there are damned lies, then there are statistics”. With that in mind, listen up to what is going on in the state of Pennsylvania. As you already know, the status of online casinos and online gambling in the United States is still up in the air. Recall that on the federal level as of yet, there has been no decisive action taken one way or the other. At the same time, at the state level, some forward thinking states such as New Jersey have taken matters into their own hands and setup their very own online casino sites for their residents.
And now, the push for online gambling is starting to heat up. You probably remember that not so long ago, the giant land based casino magnate Sheldon Adelson publicly vowed to spend any amount necessary to defeat any further expansion of online gambling in the United States. One of Sheldon’s latest move was to fund a poll in the state of Pennsylvania to determine whether or not the residents really wanted online gambling or not. It will come as no big surprise to you that the results of the Sheldon funded probe indicated that the majority of Pennsylvania residents are opposed to any expansion of online gambling (online poker in this case).
But hold on there, not so fast. A newer, more recent ...

It goes without saying that when you take the time to do your homework ahead of time before you place your next online sports bet, you are for the most part at least somewhat optimistic that your sports bet is going to fatten your wallet a bit. Unless, it doesn’t. And worse still, if your sport bet goes wrong for something you cannot have forseen and certainly could not have found in any of your preliminary research.
The last thing you would ever want to find out is that your sports bet was perfectly fine in and of itself. The problem turned out to be with, shall we say a ‘rogue’ player or players on the team you had wagered your hard earned money on. In other words, it’s about a player who turned sour, a player who snuck out and met with undisclosed parties who promised to fatten that player’s wallet if he would just ‘play ball’. In other words, this rogue player decided for whatever reason to take a cash (most likely in small bills totaling up to big numbers) payment to throw the game.
So imagine the consequences when and if this sort of event takes place. Imagine thousands, most likely hundreds of thousands of relatively smaller online gambling fans like yourselvelf ending up with the proverbial short end of the stick. The thing is, unless and until this sort of activity is uncovered, you may not even be aware that it happened or ...
