Sports Wagering one step closer in NJ....
 
Accordingly, under this bill, New Jersey would decide that its “exact contours of the



prohibition” against sports wagering should be to repeal New Jersey’s prohibitions



against sports wagering “at casinos or gambling houses in Atlantic City or at current



running and harness horse racetracks in this State.”



Therefore, the proposed law states the following:



1. All prohibitions, including, but not limited to, Chapter 37 of Title 2C of the



New Jersey Statutes, against wagering on the results of any professional,



college, or amateur sport or athletic event, are partially repealed to the extent



they would apply to such wagering at casinos or gambling houses in Atlantic



City or at current running and harness horse racetracks in this State.



2. This act shall take effect immediately.

Portion of a letter written last week by Dennis Drazin in regards to the Supreme Court deciding not to hear an appeal by NJ for sports wagering. Looks good for NJ sports wagering!

They should just go ahead and do this and see what the Fed Govt does. Marijuana is illegal at the federal level but it has not stopped many states.

Other than the Borgata or maybe Harras, what else is there anymore? I wouldn't stay anywhere but those two places. I haven't been to Revel yet but it's a ghost town for a reason I'm guessing.

As someone that visits Atlantic City quite frequently, its really sad to see all the negative developments. As a horseplayer, its even worse as Borgata is the only casino to offer simulcasting. Thankfully, that is the only place I stay anyway but it sucks to see such degenerates now at the Borgata racebook. Other than maybe the Golden Nugget, don't think there is a casino worth staying at or playing at that isnt the two mentioned above. Sports gambling I guess would be a step in the right direction, AC is sinking very quickly.

we smoke pot legally in Colo-Cali-Wash, and maybe a few more states but can only wager legally in Vegas and Tahoe.

Its about time other states start trying to pass legalizes wagering on sporting events

The problem is that the pro sports organizations, and the NCAA, are far more powerful than any group opposed to pot. They will block any sports wagering growth. One of these days, I hope they get overruled, but it's a long way off.

pretty sure I heard this week the showboat is closing...i dont think the sands is there anymore...i was in town maybe 10 years back and it was beginning to be shuttered back then. With continued proliferation of wagering in surrounding states ( and at home in NJ) I can't imagine the situation getting any better...seriously though lets pose a question...

why would someone go to Atlantic city?

Totally agree, don't forget Las Vegas, the books and their "non association" with aforementioned groups......:D ........the NFL has nothing to do with gambling.....;) . Original poster: One step closer but maybe many, many years away. Unless someone gets brave and pushes on it, which could be detrimental to political or personal health and welfare. Isn't there a thread every year about this? I think in the original one, I wrote in 10 years or so....never if it can be gotten away with.......The pot, the betting, all the personal decisions. The more important question in a "free country" is why??????? In the year 2014 the idea of a free country is still telling people how to live....amazing! You can bet here, but not over there. Smoke pot here, but not over there....Where's that one? In the Bible somewhere?:lol:

Monmouth racetrack is the only venue to sign on that will take sports wagering (starting with the fall NFL season in Sept). This was promised by Drazin. Once it gets going, other tracks and casinos may step up.

If anyone was wondering how NJ can still have sports wagering even though the higher courts said no (like I was thinking too), there is a loophole that prohibits the state of NJ from running the operation. It didn't say a 3rd party couldn't control it. So that is what NJ is doing at Monmouth with the loophole. Some clever lawyer thought of it so they wouldn't get penalized by the Feds.

I still try and go about once a month just to get away but even if you take the free rooms and free food out of the equation atlantic city still gives me better player rewards than the other mid atlantic casinos that I go to. I haven't been down in awhile but I think mdlive had a really good program going for regular players though..... trying to keep players from going to horseshoe Baltimore when it opens.

You're right, and it gives rise to a peculiar situation.

The NV casinos are opposed to the spread of sports wagering in the US,
but every single employee that works in their books hope that it grows elsewhere.
Suddenly, they have potential job opportunities all over the country.

States should have the power to decide this issue, but it won't happen. :ThmbDown:
