    Sports betting passes New Jersey legislature, moves to governor

    New Jersey's legislature unanimously passed a bill on Thursday to regulate and tax sports betting at casinos and racetracks, which would make it one of the first states to legalize the activity following a U.S. Supreme Court ruling last month. The legislation now goes to Governor Phil Murphy, who would have to sign it before operators could start taking sports wagers. New Jersey and other states are racing for a piece of the estimated $150 billion spent on illegal annual wagers in the United States, after the top court in May overturned a 1992 law that had banned sports wagering except in a few places, including Las Vegas.

    [$$] The Book on Sports Betting: The House Holds the Cards

    Now that the Supreme Court has paved the way to legalize sports betting across the U.S., novices may get the itch to go for broke. In 1992, the federal government barred states from authorizing sports gambling on the grounds that it threatened the integrity of athletics. Nevada’s existing gambling laws were grandfathered in, but with last week’s high court decision, any state may now opt to permit sports betting.

    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.

    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.
