    New Jersey approves internet gambling!!!

    New Jersey has 10 million people in it...and many NYC residents also have residences in New Jersey.

    Take the Borgata for instance...borgata probably has about 35 blackjack tables going on a saturday night at a $25 minimum...now they can have 350 tables online. The key is they can have $1 tables or $2, $5, $10 ETC it doesn't matter because it is all done instantly via computer. They can offer promotions to those players and reward points for playing(get x reward points and come stay at the hotel for free for a night or at a reduced rate). How about poker?? They can run $5 tournaments like pokerstars does but the key is that the big tournament could be held at the Borgata...or maybe it isn't held at the casino...either way you are talking about 1000's of extra people gambling with them...AND DON'T GET ME STARTED ON SPORTS BETTING. Pokerstars is huge and it is basically an underground site in america...imagine when the gambler can log on to THE BORGATA.COM and know they are gambling in a regulated enviroment....

    This is enormous news for BYD!!!
