SOUNDING LIKE A BROKEN RECORD: PA NEEDS ONLINE SPORTS BETTING BY BRIAN PEMPUS

 
The state of Pennsylvania has reported yet another month of retail-only sports wagering revenue, and the numbers, as one might expect, are nothing to get excited about.
According to figures made public Thursday by the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board, the state’s eight brick-and-stick sportsbooks took $36.76 mm in handle in April, winning $4.22 mm off of gamblers. The casinos paid a whopping $1.51 mm in taxes off that revenue.

___________________________________________________________________________

The state of Iowa has joined the ranks of states to legalize sports betting.
On Monday, Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds put her signature on a sports betting bill that cleared the legislature last month. Reynolds took about a week to sign the bill after it was delivered to her desk on May 6.
The new law authorizes sports betting for the state’s 19 casinos. The plan is to have brick-and-mortar sports wagering by the upcoming NFL season, with mobile to follow sometime after the retail books open. Iowa will allow statewide online/mobile betting, but there is an in-person registration requirement that won’t sunset until Jan. 1, 2021.

Integrity Fee Issues For NBA And MLB Run Deeper Than They Appear by John Holden



The concept of an integrity fee paid to sports leagues by states legalizing sports betting flopped so resoundingly that it had to be renamed.
League officials stopped referring to an integrity fee and started calling it a royalty. By any name, a cut of legal sports betting handle stood as the goal, along with profit from the sale of so-called official league data.

2019 Kentucky Derby Facts & History by John S Kiernan



Some call it the “most exciting two minutes in sports,” in reference to the speed of good, old-fashioned horse power and the millions of dollars that ride on the outcome. Others call it the “run for the roses,” given the giant floral garnish donned by the fastest pair in the winner’s circle. But you probably know this annual celebration of hats, horses and hooch as the Kentucky Derby, or the first leg of the Triple Crown.
This year marks the 145th running of the Kentucky Derby, held each May at Louisville’s historic Churchill Downs Racetrack. Yet only 36 mounts have followed up a Derby victory with a win in the Triple Crown’s second leg, the Preakness Stakes. And a mere 13 have then sealed the deal in the Belmont Stakes. That includes 2018 Triple Crown winner Justify. The chance to see history is nevertheless just one element of what makes the Kentucky Derby so special.

Inside the Battle for the Future of Sports Betting By Rey Mashayekhi









This spring, Americans spent $8.5 billion indulging in a time-honored vice: wagering on college basketball games.
March brought with it “March Madness,” the three-week-long avalanche of upsets and buzzer-beaters that is the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament. And with March Madness comes bets, brackets, office pools, and, of course, lost employee productivity—up to $13.3 billion worth of it, according to outplacement firm Challenger, Gray & Christmas.

Forget College Basketball: Betting on Baseball Is Where You Can Beat the House By Lawrence C. Strauss



The NCAA men’s basketball tournament, which will crown a new champion Monday night, is expected to generate $8.5 billion of legal wagers, according to the American Gaming Association.
Major League Baseball, whose 2019 season began recently, isn’t in the same league—at least not yet. The national pastime lags behind both basketball and football in betting action, although wagering on baseball looks to be increasing.
