We summarize for you the current legal developments of the last weeks on the subject of poker in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. Wed, 21 Mar 2018, 06:24 AM

  • Maybe Charles Barkley Isn’t The Best Spokesperson For A Sportsbook new
    Last week, DraftKings announced NBA Hall of Famer Charles Barkley would appear in a series of commercials. For right now, those commercials will only play in New Jersey, since that’s the only active area for the DraftKings Sportsbook. The announcement seemed benign at the time. However, in light of Barkley’s history, his appearances may not be the best idea for DraftKings. Barkley is one of the most high profile athletes who has lost millions gambling. By his own admission, his gambling has gott...

  • These Four States Could Be The Next Landing Spots For The DraftKings Sportsbook new
    The launch of the DraftKings Sportsbook in New Jersey a week ago dominated headlines with good reason – the daily fantasy sports industry leader beat an array of well-established names in the sports betting industry to the punch with respect to mobile wagering in the Garden State. Naturally, that begs the question of whether they could pull off the same feat elsewhere, and if so, how soon. Given that DraftKings has gotten what is presumably the hardest part – an initial launch – out of the way,...

  • DraftKings Gives NFL Fans First Taste Of In-Stadium Sports Betting In U.S.
    Paying attention to an NFL preseason game, to quote Patches O’Houlihan, is about as useful as a poopy-flavored lollipop. Sure, Thursday night’s game between the Cleveland Browns and the New York Giants afforded fans to catch first glimpses of Cleveland’s top-overall pick and Heisman Trophy winner Baker Mayfield as well as electric running back Saquon Barkley of the Giants. But overreacting (or even reacting) to such a game is as pointless as ordering a salad at McDonald’s. It’s like doing a fant...

Football remains king at the betting window. Of $4.8 billion wagered in Nevada in 2017, one-third was put on college and pro football ($1.7 million). Can money be won on the preseason?
