That's not exactly a new invention. Parx had that setup on its second floor 20 years ago, way before the casino. Only difference was you couldn't legally wager on the games on site (granted big...

Except they're not, are they? Handle in 2019 was $11 billion; in 2003 (the peak) it was $15.1 billion. Considering how much less that money is worth than it was 20 years ago, gamblers have clearly...

I sent a very similar note to a girl I wanted to, um, date back in 8th grade. Except mine had more "pleases". Went about as well as yours probably will.

Everyone is going to get burned more on singles---for obvious reasons. I don't know how people can play Pick 4 or 5 without singles. Changing that single to two horses doubles the price of the...
