Las Vegas casinos to start accepting Bitcoins

01.22.2014     07:23 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Starting today, Las Vegas's D Casino and Golden Gate Casino will accept Bitcoins. They won't be usable for gambling, however.


"I think we're going to see all kinds of merchants beginning to accept payments using Bitcoins the same way as in the 60s when people only took cash and checks with them, and then credits became popular," he says. "And then PayPal came along."

Cantor Gaming fortunate following record fine

01.22.2014     07:14 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Excellent article by John L. Smith on the recent record breaking fine handed down to Cantor Gaming.


Amaitis was so politically tone deaf that he apparently believed his bromance with Walters wouldn’t invite law enforcement scrutiny. But, in short order, the Las Vegas office of the IRS criminal division teamed up with casino regulatory investigators to pursue Walters for using intermediaries known as messenger bettors to place his wagers.

Super Bowl XLVIII Betting News: Is Seattle +3 on the horizon?

01.22.2014     07:08 AM     Printer Friendly
Given the initial push of money and current market price it is very likely at some point that +3 will be available for bettors interested in the Seattle Seahawks. There are a number of offscreen and Las Vegas sportsbooks with -2.5 and a few with -120 juice attached. We even found a good old fashion 3-110 at Bovada. Most consensus numbers have as high as 80% of the action on the Denver Broncos.

Super Bowl XLVIII Betting News: Sportsbooks cautious on prop bets due to weather

01.21.2014     07:21 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Sounds as if Las Vegas sportsbooks are going to sit on some of their Super Bowl XLVIII prop bets with the weather being such an unknown at this point.


“Everything, except for the basic stuff, is going to pushed back a day or two so we can get a much more clearer picture of what the weather is going to be like,” Jay Rood, sports book director at the MGM Mirage, said in a telephone interview from Las Vegas.

“We’ll see what the weather is looking like at that time and make our numbers based on that,” Sherman said by phone. “Every day we’ll just check it and if it looks like things are changing, we’ll make the necessary adjustment. We’d rather it be nice conditions and hopefully not have an effect on the game as far as causing more turnovers or if a quarterback is having trouble throwing the ball in windy conditions.”

Here's a link to all of Las Vegas' Super Bowl XLVIII parties courtesy of The Vegas Parlay. No offense to the Wynn, but if we're forking over 35K for the "Hail Mary Package" there had better be a meet-and-greet with the Queen of England as well as even money juice on all bets.

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Earlier this week reports came out the Cantor Gaming (now CG Technology) was being fined $2 million by the Gaming Control Board for its connection to the Mike Colbert/Pinnacle fiasco. Well, it turns out the fine is a little steeper than $2 million. How about $5.5 million – which is apparently a Nevada record. Also, if you want you can read the official "complaint", here's the PDF (a few highlights below).


69. The Indictment also alleges Paul Sexton and Michael Colbert acted in concert to launder money which represented the proceeds of criminal conduct.

70. Paul Sexton placed approximately 4,464 wagers with CANTOR GAMING from July of 201 1 through October 24, 201 2. The total amount of these wagers was approximately $22,000,000.00.

71 . Paul Sexton only placed wagers for Gadoon Kyrollos with CANTOR GAMING.

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wise Guy Report: NBA Moneyburners!

Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Last week, I took an in-depth look at five of the biggest moneymakers in the NBA through the first half of the season.  This week I’m going to focus on the teams at the other end of the spectrum – bottom feeders and disappointments.  I’ll break down the three biggest money-losers of the season thusfar.  And I’ll take a look at a ‘morpher’; a team playing significantly worse than current market projections.

I’ll start with the three teams that can be collectively called ‘the hopeless trio’.  It’s hard to make money betting on the very worst teams in any sport, and the NBA is certainly no exception.  And there’s no question who the very worst team in the NBA is this year, because they have both the worst SU record in the league (7-29) and the worst pointspread mark (12-24 ATS).  That team?  The Milwaukee Bucks!

Bucks head coach Larry Drew has never coached a bottom feeder before.  He walked into a good situation in Atlanta with the Hawks, who made the playoffs all three years that he was coaching the team.  Here in Milwaukee, the playoffs Read more
