Taking Sports Betting Mobile the Right Move for NJ

Mobile sports betting proves immensely profitable in New Jersey. If there’s anything that can convince a government to follow in the legislative footsteps of another, it’s a boundless influx of wealth. New Jersey’s latest figures following the legalization of mobile sports wagering are beyond impressive, and just might compel other states, if not entire countries (cough~Canada~cough) to do the same. New Jersey’s most recent financial statement, issued monthly, details the amount of money wagered on its regulated mobile sportsbook offerings in the month of July. It amounted to nearly twice the betting volume Nevada brought in during the same time frame, proving the imminent value of online and mobile betting options.

Masse Hopes for Legal Sports Movement Next Week

Internet Gambling Canada: A “lose-lose position” without legal sports betting. It’s been nearly a decade since political figureheads began the push for legalization of single-event sports betting in Canada. In the early days, there was little more than a hope and a prayer. The required legislation was, at first, unanimously applauded, only to lose favor beyond the house, dying a slow and miserable death. Another push began a few years later, but was largely ignored. It wasn’t until our neighbors to the south amended their laws that more Canadians began to take notice. Now, with legal sports betting spreading at a rapid pace across US states, the need to legalize single-event betting in the Great White North is finally being seen as an issue worthy of intense debate. One of its most adamant supporters over the years, NDP MP Brian Masse, says the first real movement could feasibly happen as … Continue reading

US DOJ Aims to Reverse Online Gambling Laws, Again

US DOJ files appeal to include all internet gambling activities in Wire Act. To the surprise of no one with any knowledge of the situation, the US Department of Justice (DOJ) is still donning their summer flip-flops. Following a sorted history that goes back more than a decade, the federal administration is hoping to see the definitions with in the Wire Act of 1961 altered to include all forms of online gambling. At present – as it has for the last 8 years – the Wire Act makes it illegal to offer sports betting over any type of telecommunication service, including the internet. Such activities can only be offered, where legally regulated, at a licensed retail sportsbook. Since the reversal of the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act (PASPA) earlier this year, sports wagering is being legalized and regulated in more and more US states, which seems to be drawing … Continue reading

NJ Lobbies for Higher Penalties as PokerStars Pays $10k Fine

NJDGE fines PokerStars $10k for accepting illegal sports bets. The New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement (NJDGE) has spent the last six years regulating the most successful online gambling market in the United States. There have been ups and downs. There have been mistakes made, problems realized, and solutions conceived. Is this not to be expected when pioneering any market of such a volatile nature? One thing gaming regulators in the Garden State have learned in recent times is that the penalties for non-compliance could have – nay, should have – been set a lot higher. That was the sentiment coming out of NJDGE offices last week when it was announced that one of their most prominent licensed operators had been fined just $10,000 for violating the state’s strict sports gambling laws. PokerStars Fined $10k for Accepting Illegal Sports Bets On April 12, 2019, David L. Rebuck, Director of the … Continue reading

FanDuel Relents, pays $82k Win despite Malfunction

Sports betting giant capitulates, pays $82k on erroneous bet slip. The universal law of gambling, where technology is concerned, is that a “malfunction voids all pays”. When a slot machine accidentally displays a jackpot win, the player doesn’t get the money. When the ball bounces out of the roulette wheel, all bets are void. A misdeal in blackjack will authorize no payouts. No matter who’s fault it is, the player always seems to be the victim. For once, that’s not the case. Last week, the headlines were lit up all over the betting world. For a mere 18 seconds, a set of odds on the Denver Broncos vs. Oakland Raiders Week-2 NFL game were displayed incorrectly at FanDuel. Not just incorrectly, but exorbitantly so. Only a dozen bettors were observant and quick enough to place a bet on those odds, including one Anthony Prince of Newark, New Jersey. $110 Bet … Continue reading
