    Senate Bill 346 is looking like a favorite at the Nevada Legislature. The bill would allow investor groups to bet as a single entity much in the way hedge funds pool their money.

  • Sports book operator offers articulate argument against Senate bill

    21 Apr 2013

    As CEO of William Hill, Joe Asher is in the odds business. But I’m not sure he would put up a line on whether his sports book outfit will be allowed to continue to place satellite-betting kiosks in bars across the state. The spread of those kiosks will cease if Senate Bill 416 runs to […]

    Putting a 24-hour casino in every home comes with great responsibility. Ensuring a safe, responsible gambling experience should be of paramount importance.

  • Let Texans Answer Our Own Gambling Question

    Oklahoma has been outplaying the Lone Star State for too long
    14 Oct 2012

    Our state was founded by men and women who exhibited fierce independence and self-determination. These values are manifested in our limited approach to state government and the belief that if you have a dream or an idea, Texas’ friendly business climate will provide the fertile ground to grow it. Over the past few years, Texas […]

  • Feel the Shame

    It's the scummy poker world, not just Full Tilt, on trial
    02 Oct 2011

    Jesse May OP-ED It didnt’t really bother me when Poker Spot folded, because that guy had history. And I laughed about the money Aces Poker stole, because anyone who trusted them couldn’t ever spot a cheat. The Ultimate Bet scandal wasn’t really that surprising, as we’d heard stories about him for years. And it never […]
