Sports betting thrives in New Jersey


One year after the Supreme Court opened the floodgates to states allowing sports gambling, New Jersey is killing it with sports bets. The casinos and racetracks in New Jersey that take sports bets took almost $314 million of sports bets in April. That’s 6 months in a row that sports wagering exceeded $300 million.

More states are rushing to add sports gambling, which will change this landscape considerably. It will be interesting to see how this affects the sportsbooks in Las Vegas, and also if New Jersey slows down as more states get in on the action.

On the other hands, the sports leagues and broadcasters are going all in as well with more content for betters, so we should see this market grow considerably.

For gamblers in many states, you’ll no longer need to go to Las Vegas when you want to have a fun weekend in the sportsbook. That will be a treat for many of us!


Grand National Horse Generator

Trying to pick which horse to back in the Grand National is like trying to win world the round at darts blind-folded. You know what to look for, you roughly have an idea how it’s going to go but in the world of horse racing your careful observations can very quickly go south when something you had no chance of foreseeing happens. To stick with the darts example, your friend Mike just walked in between you and the board while you’re trying to hit the 5. That might be a tad extreme, it’s still fully possible to handicap and get a solid idea of who’s going to win a race but the fact you can’t control all the variables makes it feel like a fool’s game on some occasions. Especially with smaller festivals like Cheltenham that have a tighter pack and are significantly easier to predict and manage when it comes to making bets. So, with 2019 pretty far away, we’ve got this random horse generator so you can put money on your pick now and can relax until this time next year. I mean, you could spend hours delving into the last race and studying the horses who competed or you could pick it totally at random out of the favourites. Choice is yours!

Basic Card Odds and Probabilities

If you’re planning to make a bit of money playing cards, there’s a few things you need to bear in mind. Firstly, what are you playing and who’s it with?

Internet Slots vs Real Slot Machines


Playing slot games is a great way to get your heart pumping.

But one question remains unanswered: which is better, online slots or real machines?

For convenience: online slots.

Perhaps the most obvious benefit of playing online games is the ability to play anywhere, anytime. Avoid the hassle and expense of travelling to an actual casino and instead enjoy easy access to your favourite slots on your laptop, tablet or mobile.

Being able to play slot games on your phone also helps you spend much less than you likely would in a real gambling venue. You can easily stop and log out when you’ve reached your budget, rather than feeling a need to keep on playing simply because you’re stuck inside a casino and the night’s still young.

How to be a Confident Poker Player

There are two types of confidence in poker and whilst both have their benefits in certain situations, there is a clear winner between the two.
