    How to make money on sports betting while everyone else loses their shirt

    Sports betting now might become similarly widespread in the U.S. The great American expectations for the pastime—blasted by critics as addictive and impoverishing, and praised by fans as fun and lucrative—follow the past week’s Supreme Court decision nixing federal prohibitions on states’ allowing it. Gambling companies William Hill (WMH.L)  , GVC Holdings (GVC.L)and 888 Holdings (888.L)are among the names that bulls view as due for gains. William Hill already runs 108 of the 192 sports books in Nevada, and it’s the risk manager for sports betting within the Delaware lottery.

    Britain cuts top stake on gambling machines on addiction fears

    Critics of the machines, often dubbed the "crack cocaine" of gambling, had also written to Prime Minister Theresa May urging the government to cut the stake to 2 pounds. The decision deals a blow to companies such as William Hill (WMH.L) and GVC (GVC.L) who had argued that the terminals were a major source of income for high-street betting shops which are struggling to stay afloat as younger gamblers move online, putting jobs at risk. Gambling companies -- most of which run internet as well as high street businesses -- face a two-way squeeze as the government plans to increase Remote Gaming Duty on online gambling to offset the loss of income from the cut in the stake.

    All Is Not Lost for U.K. Bookies After FOBT Blow, Analysts Say

    While the U.K. government’s move to cut the maximum stake on fixed-odds betting terminals to 2 pounds is a painful blow to Britain’s bookmakers, investors were more than prepared for such an outcome, analysts say. The decision dispels the uncertainty that had lingered over the sector, according to Davy’s David Jennings. The expected dent to company earnings stemming from Thursday’s announcement could spur another wave of industry consolidation, according to Canaccord Genuity’s Simon Davies, who sees bid speculation providing support to share prices.

    U.K. to Announce Crackdown on Gambling Machines This Week

    The U.K. will announce a clamp down within days on the highly addictive roulette and poker machines that are so profitable for the gambling industry but also blamed for contributing to social and economic hardship. Chancellor of the Exchequer Philip Hammond has dropped his objection to imposing to a new maximum limit of 2 pounds ($2.70) -- down from 100 pounds -- on fixed-odds betting terminals, according to people familiar with the matter, paving the way for the measure to go through. The machines -- dubbed the “crack cocaine” of gambling -- are used by thousands of betting shops across Britain, and have helped offset a decline in revenue caused by the growth in online gambling.
