such bullshit.

If a casino is licensed to have a sportsbook it should be forced to take all action up to a certain limit or lose it's license.

 

100% this. If the action is up then house limits for everyone. If you're scared, take it OTB or change your line. They know the odds and the edge. Play or don't.

That was my take away as well. If you want to maximize tax revenue, then you have to create a system that drives illegal bookmaking out of business. If the "legal" option will only take $500 in action, but the old school bookie will take $5k, you know where the money will go.

The amount of money you set as the max bet should be up to the establishment, but that max has to be available to everyone. If you arent comfortable with that model, find a different business.

I’m surprised jersey allows this. 

When Atlantic City opened to gambling the card counters hit the blackjack games hard. The casinos banned the counters. The counters sued  and won access to the casinos. The casinos then switched to 6 deck shoes and other rules to counter them.

Good. Sports wagering will only be an hour and a half away now. 

This will be going nowhere anytime soon in Minnesota. The tribes that gave casinos want it exclusively, but an expansion of gaming requires renegotiating their compacts. Since the status quo is quite profitable for them, it makes no sense for them to change.

I have a feeling this is exactly what is going on with Oklahoma. No movement at all to get it going.

Inn of the Mountain Gods opened a (William Hill) sportsbook about a month ago.  I'm guessing it will be everywhere in New Mexico before too long.
