US Supreme Court rules in favor of legalized Sports Gambling

First booze became legal, again in the U.S., then marijuana and now sports gambling. For the life of me I cannot figure what would be next but keeping in line with the most popular vices I will go out on a limb and say prostitution. On May 14, 2018 the United States Supreme Court ruled 6-2 that the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act of 1992 was unconstitutional and that the States were the ones who could decide on the fate of sports gambling. Its not the end of the world and everyone should keep their pants on for now or at least until prostitution becomes legalized, but the gambling climate will be sure to experience a massive change in the next few years.

Betting on the first Moon Landing

Betting on Apollo 11

I recently came across an interesting story that involves both William Hill and the first Moon Landing. William Hill is a bookmaker based in London and has been around since 1934 providing both betting shops and online gambling. In a recent edition of Smithsonian Air & Space Magazine, there was an article about a science fiction enthusiast who placed a wager in 1964 on the success of the first moon landing. After further research I realized that as an aviation enthusiast and online gambler myself, I had to share this story with my fellow players. Many of us remember or have seen President Kennedy’s speech on landing on the moon and returning a man safely within the decade (1960s). For many scientists it was an…

Steve Wynn resigns as Chairman and CEO

Its sometimes difficult for me to admit when I am wrong, but in this case, I will admit my mistake and ask for forgiveness. In my last article about Steve Wynn, I predicted that by the end of the week (February 2, 2018) Mr. Wynn would be ousted as CEO of Wynn Resorts. Full disclosure:  He wasn’t ousted but resigned, and this occurred on Tuesday February 6…… Okay okay, so I was wrong on two counts! I assume Mr. Wynn decided that for the sake of his company and its shareholders it would best for him to leave, stating: “In the last couple of weeks, I have found myself the focus of an avalanche of negative publicity. As I have reflected upon the environment this…

Trouble for Wynn Resorts Ltd.

What are the ramifications of the accusations against Wynn? Other than Donald Trump, no name has been more synonymous with the casino/hotel industry than Steve Wynn. A pioneer in the growth of both Las Vegas and Atlantic City, Wynn brought a new era of luxury casinos as well as pushing the envelope of bigger and grander. With the building of the Mirage, a new standard was set, and every hotel/casino built thereafter on the Strip, was trying to match or outdo the Mirage in luxury and size. Unfortunately, in the past week, Wynn’s name and his company Wynn Resorts Ltd. have taken a beating for what has become headline news in the past year, and that is sexual assault allegations against powerful businessmen as well…

Is Bitcoin Cooling Off?

We are seeing the rise in popularity of Bitcoin, and with this comes more scrutiny from institutions and governments. Unfortunately, you cannot go from 0 to 100 mph within a year and remain under the radar. On Tuesday January 16, 2018 Bitcoin lost as much as 25% of its value and is currently at $10,370 from its high of $19,783 from its high last month. One of the main reasons for this drop is the attention Bitcoin is receiving from South Korea and China. Kim Dong-Yeon, South Korea’s Finance Minister said that there is a chance that the country will shut down their crypto-currency exchanges, which include Bitcoin.
