Former Vegas gambling exec runs into trouble for playing at Pinnacle

12.05.2013     07:59 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Because of his ties to Pinnacle Sports, former Golden Nugget owner Timothy Poster had his application to work in the gaming industry rejected by the Nevada Gaming Control Board. Funny that despite residing in Las Vegas, Poster placed bets at Pinny simply because its limits were higher.


Burnett told Poster, "I've heard you're a really good guy. I like you personally." But the board cannot ignore these violations.

Board member Terry Johnson said he could not approve the license because of "his associations with certain persons" and his online wagering with an illegal sports betting service.

Johnson said he had "trouble accepting that you (Poster) did not know it was an unlawful act."

Las Vegas casinos hope for the best when it comes to collecting debt

11.01.2013     07:12 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Interesting article in the Las Vegas Sun about how casinos deal with gambling debts from high rollers.


John Kempf, a casino industry analyst with RBC Capital Markets, says casino companies tend to set higher allowances for debt more because they are depending on a few individuals to pay up. In some cases, a single customer might make up a quarter or more of a casino company's outstanding debt.

Cantor Gaming still hoping to change sports betting industry

10.29.2013     06:46 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Good article in the Wall Street Journal about the ups and downs for Cantor Gaming. Topics include Mike Colbert, money laundering, the practice of taking big bets, wiretaps, and a canceled IPO.


“Maybe Lee [Amaitis] is right and everybody else has been wrong,” said Mark Lipparelli, a former head of the Nevada Gaming Control Board. “I think you have to get to yourself to a place that says you don’t believe in market theory to think it won’t work. I happen to believe in market theory.”

“They came into town with guns ablazing, saying there’s a new way to run sports books,” said Micah Roberts, a former casino sports-book director who writes about sports betting. “They believed that eventually, in the long haul, you will grind out a profit by taking all bets.”

Caesars Palace being investigated for money laundering

10.23.2013     01:55 PM     Printer Friendly
UPDATE

Caesars is the news again and this time it's a little more serious than walking away from a potential casino deal. Turns out Caesars Palace is being investigated for money laundering. Last week's Caesars' stock was hovering around $20-$22. When news broke of the alleged financial shenanigans it dropped to just above $17. So the stock market and betting markets really are one in the same. News breaks that Tom Brady's ACL is being held together by fishing line and the Pats go off as home dogs to the Dolphins!

Las Vegas oddsmakers think that a college football game with a total of 100 is on the horizon. Oregon vs. Baylor in a dome, anyone?

No title will do justice to this ridiculous story

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
The story deserves a big WTF but if you got a few minutes to kill and want a few chuckles, here you go. We don't want to give too much away but it involves high roller/gambler Don Johnson (he's graced these pages before), a Las Vegas club DJ, a request to play Bon Jovi, and an unpaid debt.

Update: Billy Walters sticks up for Cantor, others not so much

09.06.2013     12:35 PM     Printer Friendly
UPDATE

Part II of bettingtalk.com's excellent interview with Billy Walters. Disgusted with the current state of the Las Vegas sportsbook scene, Walters did however throw praise towards Cantor Gaming as a place where sharp bettors could play. But according to the article, other pro bettors have had issues with Cantor, issues that seemingly coincided with Mike Colbert/Pinnacle shakedown.
