Livestreams & Luck Propel Slot YouTubers To Stardom by David G. Schwartz

It used to be that people played slot machines to try to win jackpots. Now, they still do, but those jackpots come courtesy of YouTube.

Like putting a bill in the validator and pressing “spin,” it seems deceptively simple: bring some money to the casino, play slot machines, record yourself, upload the video, and watch the views roll in. Even if you lost money at the slots (you probably did), you can get paid.


Barb’s Best Bets: Win A King’s Ransom Playing Crowning Glory NJ Online Slot by Barbara Nathan

Did you watch the May 19, 2018, royal wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle on TV or online? If so, did it have you fantasizing about what it would be like to live their life, if only for a day?

That was my experience. But, of course, it was short-lived, and soon, out of necessity, it was back to reality. Dreaming and reliving that dream as a memory is as close as most of us get to being surrounded by opulence and luxury of that magnitude.

Meanwhile, I was in a quandary about what to make the subject of my next Best Bets article. So that got me to thinking maybe there’s a slot game that could offer a reasonable facsimile of the royal life experience. I was skeptical but eager to start looking, and, much to my surprise — lo and behold — I hit pay dirt!

Crowning Glory is a royal-themed slot that truly lives up to its auspicious title.


The Landscape For US Online Gambling Is Looking Good For 2019 by Steve Ruddock

It wasn’t very long ago that the thought of legal online gambling in the United States was the stuff of legend. But in 2018, it isn’t just a reality, it’s spreading across the United States in many forms.

With momentum growing, states with legal online gambling could be the norm and not the exception in the not too distant future.



Now that real-money sports betting has become a reality in New Jersey at racetracks and casinos, fans of online gambling are eagerly waiting to see what their remote options will be.

Earlier this week Tropicana launched a new addition to its family of websites – Tropicana Sports – a new site that is not meant for real-money betting on sporting events but rather a free-to-play web experience where players can get a small taste of what a forthcoming Tropicana sportsbook might be like.


NJ Sports Betting: Where Will You Be Able To Do It? by Martin Derbyshire

In a decision released this spring, the Supreme Court of the United States declared the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act (PASPA) unconstitutional. This allowed New Jersey to move forward with efforts to have legal sports betting in Atlantic City casinos and racetracks in the state.

PASPA is the law that prohibited single-game sports betting everywhere except Nevada. Limited forms of sports gambling in Delaware, Montana and Oregon were also exempt. The decision declaring the law unconstitutional opened the door for states across the country to legalize sports betting.

A handful of states had passed sports betting legislation anticipating the court would rule in New Jersey’s favor. Following the decision, lawmakers in these states, and New Jersey, immediately got to work. They began putting together legislation to govern sports betting inside NJ’s borders.



At long last, the final hurdle to bringing sports betting to the Garden State has been cleared. Yesterday, Gov. Phil Murphy signed a bill legalizing a full range of sports betting options inside New Jersey at both physical sports books and through online portals.

The bill (A 4111), passed by a unanimous vote last Thursday in both the Assembly and the Senate, explicitly legalizes sports wagering in the state while providing the legal framework and regulatory structure necessary for the smooth operation of the industry.

But not everyone was happy with the final language of the legislation (i.e. the leagues), and the precedent it might set.

NJ Sports Betting Finally Crosses The Finish Line As Governor Signs Bill Into Law By Grant Lucas

Finally, the wait is over.

Gov. Phil Murphy signed Assembly Bill 4111 in Trenton on Monday afternoon, legalizing NJ sports betting and ending a brief-yet-tense couple of weeks in the Garden State.

Making ‘the dream … a reality’ in NJ

Under the bill, licensed casinos and racetracks will be authorized to accept wagers at their respective sportsbook lounges almost immediately.
