New Jersey to surpass Nevada by 2021

first_img Topics: Tech & innovation Email Address New report says state’s betting market to be worth $442m in three years 7th September 2018 | By contenteditor Regions: US New Jersey to surpass Nevada by 2021center_img Tech & innovation Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter New Jersey could have as many as 20 online operators by the end of the NFL American football season and have a bigger sports betting market than Nevada by 2021.Research company Eilers & Krejcik Gaming has tipped the fledgling market to increase from a current yield of just $35m this year to $442m (£340m/€380m) by the end of 2021. Over the same period, Nevada, the US’s gambling capital for decades, is expected to rise from a current $279m to $410m.In its US Sports Betting Monitor report – available here – Eilers & Krejcik said factors such as a shift in major card-issuing bank attitudes toward processing sports betting transactions, “very high” rates of black market recapture and cross-selling synergies between online sports betting and online casino gaming will be significant factors in New Jersey’s ascendancy.Eilers & Krejcik’s report comes at the start of the NFL season, which has been considered a key moment for in New Jersey betting operators. Last night’s game between the Philadelphia Eagles and Atlanta Falcons (pictured) was the first game on which American punters could legally place bets outside Nevada, with DraftKings FanDuel, William Hill, MGM Resorts and Rush Street/SugarHouse all offering mobile sportsbooks.With other operators set to enter an increasingly crowded marketplace soon, Chris Grove, head of sports and emerging verticals at Eilers & Krejcik, told iGamingBusiness.com that New Jersey’s betting market will be almost unrecognisable by the time Super Bowl LIII takes place in Atlanta in February.“The market by the end of the NFL season will dwarf the market as it stands today,” Grove said. “You’ll have at least double the amount of online operators, near-permanent retail sportsbooks at most properties, and an industry-wide marketing machine fully engaged.”Groves added that the key developments in the coming months in US betting will be further consolidation between land-based and online operators, as well as legislative changes.He added: “The two things we’re watching for: First, who snaps up partnerships with the remaining regional casino powers. Those deals will go a long way to determining the eventual shape of the market.“Second, what states move forward with bills and what kinds of decisions do they make on issues like tax rate and ceding control or revenue to the leagues.”New Jersey legalised sports betting after PASPA was repealed in May, with the first wagers being accepted in June. DraftKings became the first company to launch digital betting in early August. AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterlast_img read more

The dirty stuff from Cardiff

first_imgTuesday Mar 18, 2008 The dirty stuff from Cardiff On Saturday we saw Wales take the Six Nations championshipin a historic match for all the right reasons. Records were broken, milestones were achieved, and both teams played some good rugby.There were two notable blotches on the perfect day though, namely Lee Byrne taking a forearm in the face from Damien Traille, and Gavin Hensongetting to grips with French flanker Fulgence Ouedraogo.The first incident was a bit of a strange one, with Byrne giving Traille some kind of push with the arm, then Traille showing him how it’s done. The funniest part of all of it being Brian Moore’s comment. ‘Footballer.’Gavin Henson’s tackle that got him ten minutes in the bin was a bit more malicious, or perhaps even clumsy. Whatever the intention and outcome, it was dirty and a player of his quality should know better. It was so blatantly high that Ouedraogo actually almost snuck underneath it.Result aside, I thought some of you would like to see these incidents again, and mainly, have a chuckle at another Brian Moore classic.

TCU Police Department enforcing new safety policies for ESPN College GameDay

first_imgTCU places second in the National Student Advertising Competition, the highest in school history Twitter Corinne Hildebrandthttps://www.tcu360.com/author/corinne-hildebrandt/ Linkedin Corinne Hildebrandt printFans who come out to the Campus Commons this weekend for ESPN’s College GameDay should expect an increase of police presence as TCU tries to strike a balance between safety and fun. TCU has been working on new safety plans for a while, such as increased supervision and stricter policies regarding entering Amon G. Carter Stadium and the Commons, officer Tom McLaughlin said. However, officer George Steen said the recent Las Vegas attack has affected the way they are approaching this weekend’s events.“We will just have to look at things a little more diligently when searching for any indicators in the crowd,” he said. “We want to make sure our students and guests know that we’re here to make them as safe as possible but also allow them to still be able to enjoy the game.”To monitor who is entering and leaving the event, Steen said several police officers will be at all points of entrance to the Commons. Additionally, both TCU police and Fort Worth police will be stationed throughout the crowd to look for any suspicious behavior.“If a person is in fan gear and looks like a student, that is fine,” said Steen. “It’s the people who don’t characteristically look like fans that we will keep a closer eye on.”In addition to increased campus surveillance, the stadium will be locked Friday and people will only be granted access if they have an escort.“Everybody entering has to be on a list, have an access card or have a person escorting them around the stadium once we go into the lockdown mode,” McLaughlin said.  More cameras are also being installed throughout Frog Alley and TCU’s campus. “We’re putting cameras in purposely for game day,” Steen said. “We aren’t trying to make a secret of it.”College GameDay is Saturday from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m. in the Commons.

The bench also took note of his medical complications which developed after he was infected with COVID-19.Karnan has been asked to execute a bond for Rs 50,000 and furnish two sureties each for the like sum. He should not release any such videos, or postings, or statements in any print, electronic and social medias as well as in public platforms in future.The Court further directed that Karnan should refrain from issuing derogatory or abusive statements against the Judiciary as a whole, and the Judges and their family members, lawyers and the staff members of this Registry in any print,electronic and social medias as well as in public platforms in future.The Court warned Karnan that his bail will be cancelled if he violates the undertaking.In the undertaking filed before the Court, Karnan said that the videos happened to be released by him under circumstances beyond his control.”I tender an unconditional apology to all my brothers and sisters in the higher judiciary as well as to their family members and the members of the Bar and I undertake that I will not release any such videos or posting in any platform in the future”, he said in the affidavit filed before the Court.Ten FIRs were registered against him by the Chennai police over 33 videos posted by Karnan in various social media platforms. The police invoked offences under Section 153, 509 , Section 228, 509,294(b), 506(ii) r/w 120-B of IPC, Section 67-A of Information Technology Act, Section 4 of Tamil Nadu Prohibition of Woman Harassment Act and Section4 of Indecent Representation of Women Act. In the videos, Karnan was seen uttering abuses and obscenities against judges and their family members and even issued threats of sexual violence against the women relations of judges.Karnan was arrested by the Chennai police on December 2 last year, following the directions passed by the High Court in a petition filed by the Bar Council of Tamil Nadu and Puducherry demanding action against the ex-judge.  In February, the High Court had dismissed his previous bail application, rejecting his argument that the videos were made out of psychological stress and depression.Yesterday, a division bench of the High Court had restrained the National Commission for Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes and the Tamil Nadu State Human Rights Commission from taking cognizance of the complaints made by Karnan against the officers probing the abusive videos case against him, and also the judges deciding the case and the complainant.In November last year, the High Court had ordered the blocking of the objectionable videos posted by KarnanThe abusive videos of Karnan surfaced online in October, following which a group of women lawyers of Madras High Court submitted a complaint before the Chief Justice of India seeking action against Karnan.In May 2017, CS Karnan became the first sitting High Court judge to be held guilty of criminal contempt of court. A constitution bench of the Supreme Court sentenced him to six months imprisonment for his multiple acts of public utterances against judges and interference with the administration of justice. As a judge, Karnan had also extraordinary acts like passing a judicial order to stay his own transfer and issuing an arrest warrant against Supreme Court judges.After the sentence, he went into hiding. He was arrested a month later and was sent to Presidency Jail in Kolkata, where he underwent imprisonment till December 2017Click here to read/download the judgment Next Storylast_img read more
