In their first-ever venture into Europe, Raith lost the first leg

2-0 but Lennon stunned Bayern in the return when he gave Rovers an

incredible lead three minutes before the break.

“The Celtic game will be an interesting test and it will be

good to see Andreas Thom, I have seen a couple of his goals on TV.”

Bayern recovered in the second half and goals from Klinsmann and

Markus Babbel put them through.

It was one of those crazy night’s as the Raith players sat in

the Olympic Stadium dressing room at half-time holding an amazing 1-0

lead over mighty Bayern.

Rovers fans look set to snub tonight’s glamour showpiece against German cracks Bayern.

Klin could move on at the end of the season and he admitted:

“There has been contact from clubs in the Premiership and it’s

always a pleasure when big clubs in England show an interest in

Bayern-Dortmund Champions League final spells trouble for Bundesliga?

Posted by Amy G. Welsh on August 19, 2015 in Uncategorized |

m88 the biggest obstacle to change in Germany may come from those very supporters, many of whom view the English Premier League with disdain, given that they see themselves at the center of a club’s structure.

The Bundesliga boasts some of the world’s finest stadia, and its commitment to safe standing areas has helped enable clubs to keep prices low, as well as creating the boisterously vibrant atmosphere that characterizes top-flight games.

Formerly known as SSV Markranstdt, league regulations prevent the club using the Red Bull brand in its name, so it settled on RB Leipzig instead; but there is no ambiguity over the power driving it forward, with a reported planned $128 million investment to take the club to the Bundesliga by 2017.

In 2009, Rasen Ballsport Leipzig (better known as RB Leipzig) became the fourth club in Red Bull’s football portfolio, alongside Red Bull Salzburg of Austria, Red Bull Brasil, and the New York Red Bulls of the American MLS.

Those seeking a balance between these sometimes awkward bedfellows will often point to Germany and the Bundesliga. Story highlightsBayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund to contest Champions League finalGerman football’s Bundesliga is often held up as ideal league modelIts “50+1″ ownership rule viewed as key to stability for its clubsBut have Bayern and Dortmund created “duopoly” endangering that stability?Most fans would agree that a great football league needs some key ingredients: skilful players, excitement and drama on the pitch; and off the field, passionate supporters and owners who love and understand the game. At the last vote on changing this rule, back in 2009, only Hannover 96 voted to scrap it.

The German system is geared towards preventing the influence of a rich benefactor from skewing the competition, but some argue that it will only serve to perpetuate the status quo.

Hannover has now won concessions in its attempt to change the “50+1″ rule, and these will allow sponsors with a long-term relationship with a club — more than 20 years — to take a stake in it.

However club fans are already protesting about these changes, perhaps anxious at the advantage such a move might give their rivals.

“The next five years will be interesting,” said Dykes. But is it?

In the domestic Bundesliga, Bayern finished 25 points clear of Dortmund and 36 points ahead of fourth-placed Schalke 04.

“It’s getting better,” says Wolter.

But it has been the club’s willingness to part with its top players at the height of their value that has restored Dortmund’s financial health.

Read: Bayern give Heynckes winning Bundesliga farewell

It’s not hard to see why Bayern and Dortmund have become so omnipotent both at home and abroad.

“Two great managers, two teams that almost mirror each other in the way they play, the way they attack, the way they defend without the ball,” former Bayern midfielder Owen Hargreaves told CNN.

Read: Bayern coach celebrates 1,000 games

This year, partly in response to incidents of crowd trouble at games, there have even been whispers that the prized standing areas could be abolished.

“Standing is vital to low ticket prices, but also the atmosphere and the overall product of German football,” said a skeptical Dykes.

“The league realizes that and I can’t see the standing areas being given up.

After promotion in its first season, followed by two years in German football’s fourth tier, its plans look to be on track as the club prepares to contest the playoffs for another promotion in June. With two clubs in Saturday’s Champions League final at London’s Wembley Stadium, high attendances, keenly-priced season tickets, equitable club ownership and the national team on an upward trajectory, German football appears to be in rude health.

Arguably the competition is beginning to resemble anything but.

Eight years ago it was on the brink of financial ruin, missing rent payments on its stadium and facing crippling losses. “Success comes and goes. I’m not worried.”

For Wolter, the key to success lies in a combination of youth and prudence.

“You look at a team like Freiburg, they have a good academy, a good coach; it’s still possible (to be successful).

“A lot of people in Germany love Bayern and love Dortmund, in the same way as people (in England) love Manchester United or Chelsea,” he added, “but there are a lot of people who root for the underdog as well. If we’re still talking about those two in a few years’ time, or Bayern are still miles ahead, then it would be a worry.

“At Dortmund, the average age is 23, and I think Jrgen Klopp has done such a remarkable job to take that group of players and virtually dominate some terrific European teams.”

Yet among German fans there are concerns.

“Of course the current situation could become unhealthy,” said Stuart Dykes, a Schalke season ticket-holder since 1988, and the supporter liaison officer project consultant at fan ownership campaigning body, Supporters Direct.

“Even Bayern, while obviously delighted to have won the title so comfortably, have talked about it not being in their interests to do it every year.

This means a club cannot be taken over by private investors. If Manchester United’s path to the English Premier League title looked like a cakewalk, the German champions could have taken the entire dessert trolley along with them. “We’ve shown elsewhere that we’re about a strong, sustainable investment and commitment. The new television contract has also given clubs more money …

Writing in the German tabloid Bild last month, Bayern’s former goalkeeper Oliver Kahn expressed fears that the domination of the Munich club and Dortmund — Bundesliga champions in 2011 and 2012 — is here to stay, and that the gulf at the top could widen even further in the future.

Even Dortmund’s manager Jrgen Klopp has remarked that the league is in danger of becoming boring.

“People look at that possibility and of course it could be bad, but why would it happen? Bayern have always spent big; Dortmund is an exceptional team, but where will they be in three years?

“Players lose form, get injured, things can change quite quickly.

Shinji Kagawa, signed for just $300,000 from the Japanese second division, was sold to Manchester United for $17 million, while Sahin joined Real Madrid for $12.8 million. It would be difficult under German federal law to ‘ban’ them anyway, so I just can’t see it happening.”

The worry for other Bundesliga clubs must be that the success of Dortmund and Bayern could put them out of sight in the financial and playing stakes; last year Chelsea received an estimated $77 million from winning the Champions League, while beaten finalist Bayern pocketed $53.65 million.

Youth and prudence

However, the notion that a couple of teams might dominate their league is not confined to Germany.

“Spain’s that way, the last three or four years the third or fourth place team, they still play Champions League and they’re 30 points behind,” said Hargreaves.

“Bayern have only conceded something like 15 goals, which is ridiculous in a full season,” he added. and these academies are profit centers,” he says.

But while the cheapest season tickets represent superb value, if fans turn up on match day looking for tickets then the story is rather different.

“Obviously (Dortmund and Bayern) have the power and the money to buy the best players as Bayern has done again; they’ve signed Gtze for 37 million, and you know, the rich get richer, and that’s just the way that football works,” said Hargreaves.

“People can argue that’s not fair, but they paid a lot of money to Dortmund — and they can invest that money in younger players.”

Read: Bayern complete rout of Barcelona

In England, the Premier League has taken a laissez-faire approach to regulating clubs’ finances. It’s a friendly family atmosphere here, with men, women, children, pensioners, it’s a different way.”

Germany’s often raucous fans are, however, part of the fabric of the Bundesliga experience. We don’t have ‘ultras’ and we don’t need them. “People are always talking about cheap tickets, but it can be misleading,” says Dykes. Ultimately the overall product of German football would suffer.”

Dortmund revival

Not content with running away with the Bundesliga this season, Bayern are already laying plans to dominate next season, notably with the appointment of former Barca coach Pep Guardiola — who guided the Catalonia club to 14 trophies in four years — to take over from Jupp Heynckes. So I think, in a way, it’s a fair balance.”

Read: Why Guardiola will make Bayern better

And Dykes remains unconvinced that a tipping point has been reached.

“It’s too early to be talking about a duopoly,” he said.

The club’s stadium, the impressive 45,000 capacity Red Bull Arena, is certainly ready.

“We accept this rule,” said RB Liepzig’s managing director Ulrich Wolter, referring to the “50+1″ rule.

“Why is our way the wrong way? What is the difference between our approach and a club with 50 different sponsors delivering the same thing?”

Even so RB Leipzig’s new investors have encountered resistance.

The pitch at its former stadium was attacked with weed killer not long after the takeover, and fans of other clubs can be less than welcoming.

Alongside huge television deals — the latest of which could see a record 5.5 billion ($8.3 billion) windfall in broadcasting income — extraordinarily wealthy owners such as Chelsea’s Roman Abramovich and Sheikh Mansour at Manchester City have been allowed to spend big for success.

Arguably Dortmund were unable to mount an effective challenge this season as they saved their best performances for the Champions League.

But the brilliance of both Bayern and Dortmund in their respective semifinal wins against Real Madrid and Barcelona suggests the Bundesliga needs to be wary of an emerging duopoly.

But these days soccer is also about big business, million-dollar deals and billionaire benefactors lining up to plow money into the game.

“Of course standing tickets are cheap, as you would expect; but once these go, and they’re usually in demand, the ticket prices at the top end are broadly comparable to those in England.”

In fact, at $88 the most expensive match-day ticket for Bayern is the same as that at Manchester City, for example — and $9 more expensive than at Manchester United.

But the model in Germany is very different.

Under the league’s “50+1″ rule, Bundesliga clubs must be controlled by their members — with at least 50% of shares, plus one, in their hands. It’s also about education, good background work.”

Nevertheless, as Bayern and Dortmund take the field at Wembley, some may be wondering if, as well as a moment of national pride, this game might also mark a less welcome watershed in German football.


“The intention of the rule is to secure the league’s integrity against short-term investment, I think everyone understands that.”

However, Wolter is frustrated at the resistance to RB Leipzig’s owners.

“Red Bull is not a Russian oligarch, or an Arabian sheikh,” he said.

Extraordinarily, a loan from Bayern played a part in Dortmund’s survival — with $2.5 million handed over to help stave off bankruptcy.

Dortmund’s path back to solvency and success has been paved by Klopp’s highly astute signings, such as Poland striker Lewandowski, as well as his trust in talented graduates from the club’s youth academy, like midfielder Nuri Sahin. “We’re proud of our family and spectators. “The rules have had exceptions to allow for the different ownership structures of teams like Bayer Leverkusen and Vfl Wolfsburg, but Hannover has argued that this leaves them at a disadvantage, and you can see why.”

Read: Football enters space age with ‘Footbonaut’

But how is a booming Bundesliga affecting German football further down the feeding chain?

In the former East Germany, far from the country’s football powerbase, one lowly team’s fortunes are being transformed by Austrian soft drink company Red Bull’s takeover.

Dortmund’s hopes of catching Bayern next season have been further jeopardized by the loss of playmaker Mario Gotze, who recently agreed to join the Munich club at the end of this season in a $56 million deal.

Rumors of a Bayern bid for the Bundesliga’s second-highest scorer Robert Lewandowski, whose four goals against Real Madrid in the semis propelled Dortmund to Wembley, suggest a strategy centered on dismantling their only rivals’ chances before next season has even begun.

Read: English Premier League should follow Bundesliga example

The consolation for Dortmund fans is that at least the club has some money to spend to try to keep pace. “But it’s not all about money

Chelsea FC’s Beautifully Ugly EPL Game | Michael Conniff

Posted by Amy G. Welsh on August 19, 2015 in Uncategorized |

m88 that way we win.”

CON GAMES — The Culture Editor of the New York Times, who deigns on bad days to write about sports, says: “Sports are absurd.” (This in Sunday’s New York Times Magazine.) But if you’re a true sports fan, then you know Culture Editor is in way over his head — a man down in the brain with a dugout phone that doesn’t work and a red card in his wallet that he never leaves home without.

Instead, Chelsea’s second half against QPR microwaved into a classic.

Absurd, right? Down 1-0 on the road and two men down, Chelsea should have given up. What better word or way for a scribe to describe the second half of Chelsea FC’s war over the weekend against Queens Park Rangers (QPR), promoted to the Premier League this season after 15 years in the dustbin of relegation. You slog and blog through game after game in sport after sport — and then something happens, and you instantly understand why you have invested all that time and why the ultimate payoff is worth it.

The list is long and could be longer (Meireles, Ivanovic, Anelka) — but the point is that nine men railed together against the Fates. Attacking midfielder Frank Lampard, left for dead a month ago, was transcendent, racing about the pitch and throwing his body about with no regard for tomorrow. Absurdist as it may seem, angry players playing with an edge generally play their best. That’s exactly what I love about it. They lost but it was defeat replete with glory that can only bode well for whatever follows.. Goalies don’t often get a chance to show they are consummate field players, but Cech pulled it off without a blip at Loftus Road.

Chelsea, you see, was supremely pissed at Foy, at QPR, at QPR’s loathsome bandy-legged fans, at the injustice of their situation. (A central defender charging a keeper!) The Brazilian David Luis, responsible for the foul that gave up a penalty kick and the only goal, was as ubiquitous as Terry, with particular malice in the box waiting for corner kicks. Captain John Terry, the central defender who just opened his own snake shop, played like he had responsibility for the entire pitch, at one point provoking a brouhaha when he charged into the QPR goalie. With Drogba and Jose Bosingwa gone for the day, Foy’s decisions meant Chelsea would now play the vast majority of the second stanza 11 against 9 — an all but hopeless situation.

But first-year Chelsea manager Andre Villas-Boas (AVB), thirty-something, would have none of it, amigo. Now we play football like we are nine-headed monster. Left back Ashley Cole became a left wing and an instant danger man.

So, yes, I guess you could say sports is absurd. No one has a position any more. The Chelsea nine were not only spectacular as individuals but unforgettable as a group, and I give the manager credit. QPR played Chelsea at home at Loftus Road before over 18,000 — their largest crowd of the season in a high-school bandbox.

Watching sports is its own reward. All hail Chelsea FC.

You want absurd? I’ll give you absurd. When one of you moves, everyone moves. Tactically, the second half was a masterpiece, as if AVB had said to his nonet: “We are going to win and here’s how. For Cech that meant he was constantly propelled beyond the 18-yard box and into the field in the role of sweeper performed without flaw. After the weekend’s 6-1 pasting by Manchester City, Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson — he’s a knight, for Chrissakes — said he should have pulled the lads back and conceded a man-down loss to their in-town derby rival. There was no hint that this match was to become a game for the ages — until Didier Drogba perpetrated a two-footed tackle that earned a red card from referee Chris Foy, the second such ticket he had issued against Chelsea that day.

Think of it this way: by the end of the match, every Chelsea player on the pitch had a yellow card to go with the two reds — literally everyone except Petr Cech, the keeper with the padded head

Hedge Fund Returning 17% on Sports Bets Moving to Europe

Posted by Amy G. Welsh on May 2, 2015 in Uncategorized |

Galileo, which had offices in London, owed creditors more than 2 million pounds ($3 million) when Centaur folded in 2012.

“There are opportunities in sports betting for individuals but I am not sure that a fund would be able to do much damage,” Blake said.

Priomha Capital Pty Ltd, an Australian hedge fund manager that bets clients’ money on sports, plans to relocate to Gibraltar by the end of the year to double the A$5 million ($3.9 million) it has under management.

Employing a method used by individual gamblers and syndicates, Priomha looks for value by tracking sports statistics against betting odds before and during matches. Former Centaur CEO Keith Sobey couldn’t immediately be reached for comment.

Melbourne-based Priomha’s multisports fund returned an average of 17 percent since 2010 by m88 betting all of the funds as often as twice a month, Chief Executive Officer Brendan Poots said in a telephone interview. The relocation will also bring tax advantages, he added.. Priomha employs three statisticians to work with traders, and bases as little as 20 percent of decision-making on “qualitative” judgment, such as the effect on a team of the injury of a key player, Poots said. Priomha uses computer models to wager on English Premier League soccer, as well as cricket, horse racing, golf and tennis.

Poots said he’s in advanced talks with Gibraltar’s Financial Services Commission about becoming a private fund, “a sort of traineeship” for 12 months, and then becoming an experienced investor fund.

Even if the fund’s model is effective, its expansion will be restricted by the volume of regulated betting in sports, according to Peter Blake, founder of Hook, England-based Bet Angel Ltd., which sells software to help individuals to wager on sports trading exchanges such as Betfair Plc.

Blake, who’s also a professional sports gambler, said it’s not possible to bet more than about 175,000 pounds on the Grand National, one of the U.K.’s biggest horse races, without distorting market prices.

Investors will have “a greater degree of comfort” after we move because hedge funds in Gibraltar are regulated more thoroughly than in Australia, according to Poots, a former cricketer who played for the U.K.’s Sussex. It hedges betting to offset potential losses.

The sports fund, which will target high net worth individuals and family offices, has expanded more cautiously than Galileo, a previous sports-gambling fund managed by Centaur Global Ltd., Poots said. Centaur overstretched itself while still working on such algorithms when it opened its sports fund in 2010, according to Poots

This approach provides flexibility for a user as they can indulge in betting sessions anytime they desire. All a user needs to do is register at their accounts and verify that they are of age.

Which is the best online casino website?

Are online casinos also prone to dice malfunctioning?

How to Bet Proposition Bets at a Sportsbook by RJ Bell

Posted by Amy G. Welsh on November 28, 2015 in Uncategorized |

Before every major event in non-team sports like golf, tennis and auto racing, futures are set by oddsmakers.

As you can see, there’s much more to betting than simply totals and sides, especially when it comes to gambling on non-team sports. Since golf and NASCAR both have pre-qualifying, not everybody makes the cut to the final day of competition, and these group matchups require all individuals to qualify in order to be eligible for action. These are not fixed and are adjusted by sportsbooks several times leading up to the event and are sometimes released months before an event. Open tennis tournament, a reasonable money line would require Serena bettors to risk $400 to win $100 while a $100 bet on her opponent would win $360. The two main ways of wagering on non-team sports are “Betting to Win” an event and “Matchup Betting” which pits an individual against another individual or a group of individuals. A NFL future bet on a team to win the Super Bowl might be 20/1 in the preseason; but by midseason, their odds might decrease to 10/1 if they turn out to be legitimate championship contenders.

Betting sides and totals on major sports like baseball, basketball and football are the most common wagers available everywhere. For example, betting on the 2006 Masters golf tournament now might get you much better value on Tiger Woods, who may be 10/1 at this moment but dip to 6/1 closer to the event if he is on a roll. The odds on a “field” bet are typically comparable to a bet on the favorite in order to protect sportsbooks from taking a big hit if a major upset occurs. For more information on how this works, be sure to check out How to Read the Money Line. Props, also known as exotic wagers, are also extremely popular on high-profile team sporting events like the Super Bowl in Las Vegas . However, many sportsbooks also offer proposition bets (or props short) for gambling on non-team sports like golf, tennis, boxing and auto racing – including NASCAR – due to their growing popularity. So be aware of all your wagering options and don’t miss out on the excitement non-team sports have to offer with prop betting!

Here’s how the money line would be listed: Serena Williams -400 / #102 Ranked Opponent +360. In exchange for a lesser payout, field bettors gain the advantages of having more than one entrant that can win for them. . Other examples of props for non-team sports include what racing team will finish highest in a particular NASCAR race (Chevy, Ford or Dodge) or how many rounds will the fight between Mike Tyson and Kevin McBride last (Over/Under 8.5 rounds).

For non-team sports like golf, boxing, tennis and NASCAR, “Matchup Betting” offers an alternative to simply betting on the event’s winner. Unlike team sports such as football, non-team sports also have multiple events over the course of a year, so “Betting to Win” obviously happens much more frequently than a once a year NFL futures bet on the Super Bowl winner does.

It is very important to note that not all the competitors in an event may be listed, so another betting option is on the “field” which includes all other competitors not listed. An artificial head-to-head matchup involves competitors in an event like a golf tournament or auto race who are indirectly competing against each other since in reality they are competing against everybody in the field, not just one other competitor.

Matchup Betting

Group matchups are another way “matchup betting” is used which is particularly popular in golf and auto racing events like NASCAR, where you can select whether a leading competitor or a few other lesser competitors will finisher higher amongst the group, with the odds again based on money lines.

Contributed by:

An example with team sports would be NFL futures, where you often can get much higher odds on a team by betting before the season starts.

What will be the exact margin of victory

Every $400 bet on Serena nets a $100 profit if she wins (plus the return of the $400 risked).

Betting to Win

The main advantage of futures is that you can get appealing odds by betting far in advance of when the event takes place.

What team will win the coin toss

What player will score the game’s first touchdown

Furthermore, a tennis match would be considered a tournament-style head-to-head matchup since the competitors involved directly play against each other in the event. If her opponent pulls off the upset, $100 bet on the underdog would profit $360 (plus the return of the $100 risked).

Proposition bets for non-team sports are not limited to “Betting to Win” an event and “Matchup Betting” but those are the primary ways to wager on them. The same holds true for major team sports like NFL and college football, NBA and college basketball and MLB baseball.

“Betting to Win” an outcome event like The Masters is the most common way to wager on individuals competing for a particular non-team title. These artificial matchups are also fake in the sense that bookmakers are the ones creating them – solely for betting purposes – and different books will often offer different matchups. “Matchup Betting” generally involves an individual going up against another individual in a head-to-head event, such as a tennis match, and the odds are determined using the money line. For example, you can bet on:

For example, if Serena Williams faced an overmatched opponent in the U.S. The Imperial Palace Casino’s sportsbook is well-known for the enormous number of prop bets offered

The rise of Dial Sports and pre-Internet American sports betting

The line hadn’t moved to reflect Moore’s scratch till they put it on the score phone prior to the game.

“From that point on, we generally referred to as courtside and asked for last-second scratches, injury info, and so on.,” Duffy mentioned. I’d release it on my 1-900 quantity, and the [betting] line would practically inevitably go up.” And occasionally, they’d even stumble upon facts that hadn’t been made public and wasn’t represented in the betting marketplace. Surrounded by gentlemen’s clubs, massage parlors and liquor stores, the work atmosphere ranged from pretty casual to vulgar.

“We had several televisions, hooked up to the old-style significant satellites,” recalled Lichtenstadter, a single of the early Dial Sports announcers, who went on to function for many totally free phone solutions in Atlanta. But just before you got the scores, you had to listen to iterations of nonsense like this from 1 pick-seller: “If I do not win this game, I will blow my brains out.” Yet another tout from Atlanta told callers, “In honor of my idol Martin Luther King, TL Steele is getting his DEAD-MORTAL lock … Not pretty enough of it trickled down to me. But a lot of the score updates came directly from the stadiums and arenas. Lichtenstadter spent the last decade in banking, and Duffy remains in the handicapping enterprise as the owner of OffshoreInsiders.com.

Charles, who turns 80 in November, is operating on a digitally enhanced book accompanied by 31 songs that he wrote that will go on sale on Amazon.com this fall. They continuously known as Charles’ 900-976-1313 pay number. Multiple services had 976 numbers to serve regional audiences, which includes the Sports Phone out of New York, which was recently profiled by Newsday).

Dial Sports was extremely popular.

The evolution of American sports betting prior to the Online can be traced back to a garage workplace in the suburbs of Philadelphia. Asked if they did it for their personal purposes or to enhance the value of the score phone, Duffy replied, “Each.”

The offices that housed the free of charge score phones of the 1990s have been a step up from Charles’ garage … barely. It produced an array of characters who went on to a wide range of professions. Bonaventure and had been offered info that their star Harry Moore Jr. “Not poor for a kid from the Bronx.”

. The calls, costing as significantly as 50 cents apiece, came from across the nation. “You could pick up something. How quite a few of the calls have been from separate folks, and how many came from the same desperate gamblers remains major secret.

“It could have effortlessly been 17 degenerates, coming out of Madison Square Garden, looking for what the scores had been,” Charles, the founder of Dial Sports and 1 of the pioneers of pay-per-get in touch with score phones, stated with a laugh. Bonaventure basketball game.

“We named pregame at St. Locals know it as Cheshire Bridge. Quite a few were placed from the pay phones outside of Madison Square Garden, some came from Las Vegas and virtually all had been from gamblers. Each and every booth had a phone and a list of around 200 contacts with skilled and college sports leagues and arenas.

The house was elevated, allowing the group to choose up games on the radio from across the nation and up into Canada. Mike Orkin, a prominent statistician and college professor.

“We discovered this one particular NBA program. But Charles wasn’t running a backroom bookmaking operation.

A charismatic and ambitious kid from the Bronx, Charles was one particular of the public voices of sports betting in the 1970s and ’80s. Dial Sports eventually evolved into the content provider The Sports Network, and Charles got away from the phones, but not ahead of making millions.

“We didn’t have a dollar to our name when I sat down with my wife, before the garage,” Charles mentioned, pondering back to how it all started. was a last-second scratch,” Duffy recalled. Currently, pick-sellers rely more on social media and on the internet advertising, but at the time, the totally free score phones have been a boon for their ilk.

By the early 1990s, score updates by phone have been free. A single office was positioned in a seedy location of metro Atlanta. It after occurred right ahead of a 1993 UMass-St. Former Georgia Senate Majority Leader Chip Rogers worked in the score phone industry and even created picks as “Will The Winner.” One more score phone alum is now a pastor in metro Atlanta. “We got some incredibly heavy get in touch with volume on our 1-900 numbers back in the day. He wrote a gambling column for the Philadelphia Inquirer and featured Las Vegas sportsbook executives and handicappers on his radio broadcasts. If I knew then what I know now, I in all probability could have negotiated a tiny bit greater salary.”

Duffy swears there was some sophisticated handicapping taking place. Tables with partitions divided the workplace into person booths for the five announcers who would work on a busy shift. “Even some of the colleges never had a challenge with it.”

Dial Sports, significantly like a lot of pay-per-get in touch with services in the mid-1980s, grew rapidly. It was to go with a a lot more than five-point road favored off either a road loss or a loss as an underdog,” Duffy recalled. Following all, how else would they know how considerably to bet on the subsequent games? (The 976 prefix was the regional predecessor to the national 1-900 numbers that became the story of the early 1990s. We’d have games on most of the TVs, and we’d have a few TVs reserved for Playboy Channel or one thing significantly less restricting, X-rated.”

But the score telephone business was significantly extra than just porn, picks and scores. They after acquired computer application written by Dr. “The program, at the time, was outstanding. He was both an announcer and a choose-seller, who admits to not becoming “absolutely proud” of some of the things that had been said on the telephone those days. It expanded to regional offices and was thriving, before the market began to alter and the touts got into the game.

The tout takeoverJust before the World-wide-web took hold in the early 1990s, there was a rise in touts — sports betting pick-sellers who usually had been substantially additional expert salesmen than prognosticators. “When a person asked that question, that’s when we’d [try to alter the subject and] say, ‘Would you like to go to lunch?’”

The garage office had flooring, a drop ceiling and neon lighting. Announcers would call sports information and facts directors, media relations personnel and even straight to press row for updates.

“Dial Sports, can we have an update on your score?” they’d tell whoever answered the telephone.

“No 1 cared,” recalled Steve Lichtenstadter, a Dial Sports alum, who worked in the garage office. In a 1978 look on “The Today Show,” he nailed the score of Super Bowl XII, telling then-host Tom Brokaw the Dallas Cowboys would beat the Denver Broncos 27-10.

“I told Tom Brokaw that I’d come back on, but he could not ask me for another score ever,” Charles joked for the duration of a spring phone interview about his productive and profitable profession in sports media and gambling.

Financially, issues took off for Charles just after he transformed the two-car garage adjacent to his dwelling in Huntingdon Valley, Pennsylvania, into the headquarters of Dial Sports, a single of the earliest spend-per-get in touch with services that provided frequent score updates on games.

At a time when technological choices had been limited, gamblers did not hesitate to portion with two quarters to hear updates on their invested interests. But he also believes that era helped grow the sports betting business.

“The absolutely free score phones surely changed how Americans bet,” said Duffy. I distinctly remember, the first six months that I did my 1-900 line, it got ideal around $500,000 in income. He’s also a standard speaker at gaming business conventions. if this does not win, TL Steele will donate $1 million to his favorite charity, the United Negro College Fund.”

Sources say the true dead-mortal lock was that the donation was never ever generating it to the UNCF, win or shed.

Sometimes through their boisterous, rambling sales pitches, they would offer you a free choice on a game, prior to encouraging prospects to speak to a sales rep at yet another number for the “huge play.”

Joe Duffy, one more Dial Sports alum, witnessed the complete spectrum of score phone’s rise and fall.

At its peak, in the early 1980s, Mickey Charles’ garage was receiving 20 million telephone calls a month and generating millions of dollars in income

Two Gamblers Beat Tropicana Casino at Its Own Games, Winning $11 Million Total

Posted by Amy G. Welsh on November 24, 2015 in Uncategorized |

They appear for certain clues that tell them here’s a player exhibiting counting-like behavior, somebody who demands closer scrutiny–players exhibiting a substantial variation in bet size, for instance.”

Johnson, who was unavailable for this story, could have figured out a way to count with no seeming to count–by deliberately generating negative plays, for example, but in such a way as to reduce the price to himself.

Henry Tamburin, author of “Blackjack: Take the Cash and Run” and editor of Black Jack Insider Newsletter, doesn’t rule out the possibility Johnson’s winnings could have been the outcome of “sheer luck.”

It is highly unlikely, he says, but not impossible–specifically if, as Johnson told the Press, casinos had been giving him a VIP discount of 20 % on his losses. The size of the edge depends on the variation of the game that’s being played, but it can get down to much less than 1 %. When he knows he has the benefit, he bets greater. A second gambler in the span of about two months has won over $5 million from the casino.

An unidentified man last week walked away with $5.three million immediately after playing blackjack, craps, and mini-baccarat, and reportedly left a $150,000 tip that was split among the table dealers that evening.

“That’s just how it goes sometimes if you bet more, you can win a lot more,” Tony Rodio, Tropicana’s president and CEO, told the Connected Press. In what may turn out to be an unfortunate decision of phrase, he told a reporter for The Press of Atlantic City, “I don’t wear Kevlar. The odds just became extra odd at Tropicana Casino and Resort in Atlantic City, N.J. Card counting can turn the edge against the casino, which is why management bans card counters when they are caught.”

Richard speculates that Johnson may perhaps have figured out a way deliberately to randomize certain aspects of his play, thereby avoiding detection by casino systems developed to recognize and root out counters. “That’s unheard of But if that’s correct, and you are only losing only $eight out of each $10 you bet, you’ve currently got an edge if you just preserve banging away. “If you can take the swings,” he told the Atlantic City paper, “You happen to be going to win. As the CEO of the Tropicana mentioned in early Might, referring to his casino’s loss of $6 million to an undisclosed player assumed to be Johnson, “We ran very unlucky.”

In truth, Johnson’s run of luck the initially time because the casinos opened in Atlantic City in 1978 that a gambling property lost cash at the game of blackjack more than a particular month, a spokesman for New Jersey’s Casino Control Commission told The Star Ledger: “It really is extraordinarily unusual for a casino to drop revenue at the game of blackjack in a specific month,” the spokesman told the paper.

Tamburin suspects there will have to be more to the story: “To me, it really is all a small strange. “Casinos monitor each aspect of play, 24/7, making use of cameras in the ceiling. “A 20 percent discount?” Tamburin asks in disbelief. If you happen to be the CEO, immediately after you shed $1 million, somebody wakes up and says: There’s something wrong right here.”

. His prowess in blackjack, he says, has gotten him banned from some casinos.

Johnson insists that he’s no cheater: that all his Atlantic City winnings came to him fair and square. How’d he do it? Was it divine intervention, card-counting or an epic run of superior luck?

Johnson isn’t saying. Something’s not proper right here. I’m not bulletproof.”

The 49-year-old resident of Bensalem, Pa., stated in the same interview that he began playing blackjack 15 years ago, beginning with $25 bets. When he knows the benefit has shifted to the home, he bets reduced. Now he’s a qualified gambler of sorts: chief executive officer of Heritage Improvement LLC, which develops laptop or computer-assisted wagering systems for horseracing. “We have a strategy of providing the most aggressive and highest table games limits in the Atlantic City market place and we’re not going to adjust that. You also have to understand the math.”

By that he likely means card-counting, which is not illegal: A blackjack player with a trained memory and enough acuity can retain track of which cards have been played and which are nevertheless in the deck, thereby maximizing his chances for beating the house.

Explains Richard, a former card counter who currently works on Wall Street (and who asks that his final name not be used), “As the composition of the cards in the deck fluctuates, the player’s benefit fluctuates. It really is a continuous cat-and-mouse game. All you’d have to do it bet at higher levels and use standard method.”

Alan puts it far more bluntly: “I can not think casino management would be so dumb as to lose its edge totally by escalating the limits to $one hundred,000 and by forgiving 20 % of the player’s debt.”

But possibly they had been. If a person wants to take the shot, we’ll take the action.”

And that’s specifically what Don Johnson, a gambler from Bensalem, Pa., did at Tropicana and other Atlantic City casinos. Caesar’s he let off effortless, taking only $four million. He admits to obtaining had to take some losses along the way. Not only do you modify the amount of your bets, you change your playing method: When you know it really is to your advantage, you hit a hand you’d otherwise have decided to stand on.”

Alan, a expert gambler who asks that his last name not be made use of, adds, “Even under regular situations, the house’s edge is small against a knowledgeable player. Even though he refuses to divulge the program he uses, it depends in aspect on his obtaining a significant sufficient bankroll to sustain losses and hold suitable on going. Between December and April, Johnson, playing single blackjack hands of up to $one hundred,000, reportedly walked away from Atlantic City’s tables with a cool $15 million.

From the Tropicana he took $6 million from the Borgata, $5 million
