John L Smith – McCain, others change their tune on sports wagering
John L Smith – McCain, others change their tune on sports wagering The odds are good even the most perceptive bookmaker didn’t see this turnaround coming: U.S. Sen. John McCain speaking out in favor of expanding legalized sports betting in America.“We need a debate in Congress,” the Arizona Republican said recently. “We need to have a talk with the American people, and we need to probably have hearings in Congress on the whole issue so we can build consensus.”The American people couldn’t hear him. They were too busy betting with both fists on the recent Super Bowl — most of it illegally. Authorities estimate the “Big Game” generated $3.8 billion in illegal and untaxed wagers this year.But it’s hard to be much of a prohibitionist when your state generates big revenue by playing host to games that make up some of the biggest betting events of the year. Arizona is home to college bowl games and now the Super Bowl and Pro Bowl. If the political brain trust was smart, it would legalize sports betting on those occasions and bag a fortune in dollars that otherwise is flowing to Nevada or, more likely, into the pockets of illegal bookmakers from here to the Caribbean.Some of us are old enough to remember when McCain led the fight to ban college sports betting in places it’s currently legal. The fact those places were basically all located in Nevada was of little concern to McCain back in 2001 when he was bellowing and braying to ban the bets.In an article published in The Hill titled, “It’s Past Time to Ban Amateur Sports Gambling,” McCain offered, “In 1992, Congress recognized the federal interest in protecting sports and athletes from the harmful effects of gambling, and prohibited state-sanctioned sports betting in the overwhelming majority of states. Although Congress ‘grandfathered’ a handful of states at that time, only Nevada has chosen to permit legal gambling on college sports. Until last year, however, when it changed its law in response to charges of gross hypocrisy, Nevada did not allow gambling on Nevada college teams — it only countenanced gambling on young athletes from every other state.“Although betting on amateur sports is legal only in Nevada, its impacts are felt throughout the country. Not only does the Las Vegas betting clearinghouse send a confusing message about the propriety and legality of amateur sports gambling, the publication throughout the country of Las Vegas-generated point spreads fuels illegal gambling in the judgment of the (National Gambling Impact Study Commission), and steals victories from young athletes who manage to beat their opponents but not the spread.”Forgetting for a moment that Nevada sports books have played an integral role in ferreting out signs of sports fixing for many years, the college sports betting issue generated big headlines for McCain and set him at odds with the gaming industry. So it was with no small sense of irony that at the same time McCain was hand-wringing over the soul of amateur athletics, he was also seen playing with both fists at the tables inside Caesars Palace not too far from a mega-sports book.Times have certainly changed. This past year in an opinion published in the New York Times, NBA Commissioner Adam Silver said legalized sports betting should be expanded outside Nevada and regulated by the federal government, which does such a good job of regulating other things. But I digress.Silver’s perspective is refreshing and historically astute. Professional basketball’s founding generation was riddled with bookmakers and gamblers. Its games gave bookies and players action in Eastern cities at a time there wasn’t much else flowing in the winter months.The same is true for professional football. Some of its legendary leaders had bookmaking in their bloodlines — not that the NFL’s hypocritical hierarchy is inclined to admit that these days.Above the Little League and Pop Warner levels, sports and betting are inextricably linked. That doesn’t mean it’s always a healthy relationship — sometimes it’s downright scandalous — but its existence is undeniable.As a certain former prohibitionist from Arizona recently put it, “I think that there is a place for sports gambling where gambling is legal.”Of course there is. And it’s long past time McCain and some of his fellow senators acknowledged the fact.Copyright GamingWire. All rights reserved.

Mark Pilarski – Deal Me In: Does the Golden Arm exist?

Mark Pilarski – Deal Me In: Does the Golden Arm exist?
Mark Pilarski – Deal Me In: Does the Golden Arm exist? Dear Mark: I have read about people who are selling info about how to set dice. Is there anything to someone’s ability to set dice and to throw them a certain way to improve their ability to throw desired numbers? On the other hand, are you convinced no matter how you “set” the dice that you will have a completely random roll? I think there must be something to dice setting, as some casinos do not let you set them. Wade J.Setting dice on a crap game has been practiced forever and is typically not considered illegal. Dice setting rules or decisions come under each individual casino’s policy. Where it is allowed, the only problem dice setters might run into is that they could take some heat from a boxman for holding up the game by taking too long to find their set.The superstitious player might not like seeing a seven or a craps facing them once they take delivery of the dice from the stickman, so they rotate the dice – set them – until they have their favorite number on top.Then there is the dedicated community of crap players who believe in “controlled shooting” which goes far beyond simply setting the dice to their liking before a roll. These shooters feel that by gripping and tossing the dice at the correct angle, they can limit the rotational characteristics of the dice. By doing so, they will be able to control the results, hence, the game’s long-term odds in their favor.So, Wade, can dice shooters set the dice in a particular way and alter the conventional odds of the game? I fly on the side of gaming folklore, and hold that “it ain’t so.”Others in the gaming business disagree. A favorite gambling author of mine, Frank Scoblete, penned a very enjoyable book called, Golden Touch, Dice Control Revolution. I’m not saying “no dice” to his belief, but it’s just that after spending 18 years on the inside, umpteen on the out, that I have to see it to believe it. And I haven’t seen it yet – with an officially permitted toss that is.As for a player setting, then sliding the dice across the table to get a specific result, sure, how hard is that. You can do that on your dining room table all day long. But you can expect to see crap dealers, a boxman, the pit boss or the eye in the sky go bonkers when some dice charlatan tries to illegally manipulate the cubes in a manner where a random outcome won’t occur.Cheating at craps is illegal, and there could be some substantial consequences not if, but when you are caught. Dice must be thrown across the table with some degree of ump. They cannot be pushed, “trickled” or slid across the table by the shooter.My personal take, Wade, is that the chance of affecting the dice after they have bounced off a surface of rubber pyramids on the back wall of a 12 foot crap table are slim to none, no matter how you set them, or what axis the dice were on in flight before they hit. Now playing cup-free, laissez faire Yahtzee with my wife, well, that is a different story.Gambling Wisdom of the Week: “The dice goad like hooks and prick like whips; they deceive and torment. They are coated with honey.” – Better’s Lament, Rig Vada Hyme

Howard Stutz – Vote to reverse Bay State casinos appears losing — or will it?

Howard Stutz – Vote to reverse Bay State casinos appears losing — or will it?
Howard Stutz – Vote to reverse Bay State casinos appears losing — or will it? By all accounts, a referendum to undo Massachusetts’ casino law should get crushed in Tuesday’s election and lose by 15 to 20 percentage points.That’s what the most recent polls say.Then again, this is Massachusetts.Nothing has been simple when its comes to the state’s nascent casino business.Caesars Entertainment Corp. was tossed from the gaming license process in 2013 when an investigation found loose ties between a distant company business partner and an alleged Russian mobster.Wynn Resorts Ltd. Chairman Steve Wynn told the Massachusetts Gaming Commission a year ago he was “scared to death” his company would be chosen to build a Boston-area casino, only to lose the license because of rumors or unfounded allegations.MGM Resorts International was the last remaining applicant for the western Massachusetts license, but it was still touch-and-go this year whether the company would be approved by regulators.In the Bay State, the road to casinos has had many potholes.Now, three years after lawmakers and the governor approved adding three Las Vegas-style casinos and a slot machine-only facility, gambling opponents pushed through an anti-gaming ballot referendum.Voters have a chance to scuttle the whole process.A yes vote means the hundreds of millions of dollars spent on development plans, locating and securing casino sites, winning local approval and investigating potential operators will have been for naught.A no vote is a victory for the casinos.Polling by The Boston Globe a few weeks ago found 53 percent of voters support keeping the gaming law, while 39 percent want to see the casinos thrown out.Eric Schippers, Penn National vice president of public affairs, said the company takes nothing for granted.During Penn’s third-quarter earnings conference call last month, Schippers said the company is part of a broad-based coalition that includes unions and public safety advocates working to defeat the referendum.That support includes a recent $1 million campaign contribution from Penn National to the coalition, bringing the company’s overall total to $3.2 million since July.The casino operator is protecting its investment, a $225 million slot machine-only casino attached to Plainridge Racecourse. Penn has invested more than $100 million in the Massachusetts gaming push, including $42 million to secure the facility and $25 million for the license.The casino operator is halfway through construction of the slot machine casino to open next June.Schippers said Penn’s effort is focused on the jobs and revenue casinos would create for the state and local communities. The casinos also would help recapture $1 billion annually spent by Massachusetts residents in out-of-state casinos.Penn National CEO Tim Wilmott hopes voters are getting the message and “appreciate the substantial economic and employment benefits that gaming will bring to the Commonwealth.”The ballot question has brought detente to the bickering factions of casino industry.Penn and MGM Resorts, which is licensed to build an $800 million hotel-casino in Springfield, feuded in recent years over casino locations on the East Coast. MGM Resorts has donated $2.5 million to the pro-gaming coalition.Wynn Resorts, which earned a license in September for the Boston area to build a $1.6 billion property in the town of Everett, donated $1 million to defeat the referendum.The Washington, D.C.-based American Gaming Association, which normally avoids statewide ballot referendums, targeted a series of its “Get to Know Gaming” ads in the Boston area in recent weeks, touting the industry’s $240 billion annual economic impact across the country.The pro-casino Coalition to Protect Jobs has raised more than $7.5 million, according to the most recent campaign spending reports. The Repeal the Casino Deal Committee has raised $436,000.Union Gaming Group analyst Robert Shore said the gaming industry campaign contributions will be money well spent. He expects the referendum to lose handily Tuesday.“The profiles for projected economic impact encompassing funding for education and infrastructure, as well as projected job creation of 15,000 jobs, remains compelling for host communities,” Shore told investors last month. “Additionally, we note that incremental license fee revenue has already been considered within the (Massachusetts) budget, therefore implying tangible downside for the state if projects are shelved.”Outgoing Gov. Deval Patrick, who signed the original casino legislation, and House Speaker Robert DeLeo, who backed the bill, oppose the referendum. Candidates hoping to replace Patrick also have said they will vote no on the measure.The highest-profile supporter of the referendum is U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., who is sometimes touted as an alternative to Hillary Clinton for the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination. The Boston Globe editorialized in favor of the casino repeal.A year ago, it seemed Massachusetts was doing everything in its power to trash what many analysts believe would become a lucrative gaming destination.But events changed and licenses were awarded.MGM Resorts could start building in Springfield as soon as the referendum is declared dead.Wynn Resorts is moving ahead with a regulatory agency-requested redesign of its hotel-casino and is expected to provide a cleanup plan for the heavily polluted 30-acre former Monsanto Chemical Co. site along the Mystic River across from Boston.Even Massachusetts couldn’t screw up Tuesday’s vote.Or could it?Copyright GamingWire.
