Powerball to increase drawings to three nights a week with Monday edition

Powerball has announced it will increase the number of Powerball drawings from two nights to three nights a week beginning in August 2021.

A new Monday edition will be added to the drawings currently held on Wednesday and Saturday nights, with the first occurring on August 23. Sales for the first Monday drawing will begin on August 22.

Mississippi Lottery Corporation President Tom Shaheen commented: “Our players really enjoy Powerball, and we are pleased to offer them the option of a third weekly drawing. By having an additional draw-night, there is a greater opportunity for faster-growing jackpots and more cash winnings.”

Odds, rules, or set cash prizes will not change with the addition of another drawing, and the ticket price will remain at $2.

FanDuel Gives West Virginians Their Fourth Online Casino Option from USBets' Gary Rotstein

FanDuel launched its online casino in West Virginia Wednesday, meaning the state now has twice as many such iGaming sites as it did a month ago.

The FanDuel announcement comes on the heels of Rush Street Interactive launching its BetRivers iCasino in the state three weeks ago. From last summer until April, only DraftKings and BetMGM provided online casino games in West Virginia.

FanDuel has had an online sportsbook in the state since August 2019, as West Virginia was one of the first states to embrace broad expansion of legalized gambling in the wake of the May 2018 U.S Supreme Court ruling striking down the PASPA ban.

It and New Jersey, Delaware, Pennsylvania, and Michigan are the only states allowing gamblers to both bet on sports and play slots and table games online. FanDuel has been serving those options to customers in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Michigan. Its newest launch is possible through the company’s partnership with The Greenbrier resort, which West Virginia provides gaming license opportunities equivalent to those of its four racetrack casinos.

Could Full Online Casino Gaming Come to Nevada? State Regulators to Discuss

Nevada is synonymous with casinos, but the state currently bans nearly all forms of gambling via the internet. That could soon change.

Many outsiders who only casually visit Las Vegas are often surprised to learn that Nevada is one of only five states that does not have a lottery, nor participate in interstate lottery games like Powerball and Mega Millions. And despite legal, regulated online gaming proliferating across the country — interactive slot machines and table games live in five states and more on the way — Nevada continues to ban most internet gambling.

The exception is online poker, which has operated in Nevada since 2013. The lone operating platform — WSOP.com — pools its online poker players with New Jersey and Delaware.

The Nevada Gaming Control Board (NGCB) has proposed a series of amendments to Regulation 5A, which is the state’s laws dealing with interactive gaming. The NGCB has planned a May 13 hearing to consider authorizing additional online casino games, and allowing sports bettors to create mobile accounts without visiting a casino.

Atlantic City Casinos Looking Forward To Guidelines Near Normal, Per Gov. Murphy from NJ Online Gambling's John Brennan

njog logo

Indoor bar seating is back in New Jersey effective this weekend — subject to social distancing — and buffets are back as well.

And as of May 19, the 50% indoor dining capacity will disappear. There will still be a 6-foot social distancing requirement, but Gov. Phil Murphy hinted that might soon be lowered by federal officials.

Fate of the 8 Linked Progressive

Industry conferences also are now permitted to operate at up to 30% capacity regardless of the size of the venue.

The changes announced by Murphy all bode particularly well for Atlantic City casinos as those properties prepare for “high season,” from Memorial Day weekend later this month through Labor Day in September.

BETMGM, BORGATA SITES ARE DEALING PA’S FIRST NEW POKER OPTION SINCE 2019 BY PENNBETS' GARY ROTSTEIN

PennBets

Pennsylvania’s online poker players’ patience was tested the past 17 months by having only one site to play legally in the state at PokerStars, but another option finally arrived Tuesday morning.

BetMGM went live at 9:45 a.m. with interlinked sites at its BetMGM and Borgata iCasinos, each of which have been providing slots and table games play for months in Pennsylvania. Advertised as BetMGM Poker PA and Borgata Poker PA, they are powered by the PartyPoker platform on both sites, sharing the same games and players and essentially functioning as one new poker option.

The new online poker is monitored over a two-day test period by the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board, but the sites are fully functioning for real-money play 24/7 as they will be when cleared for permanent play.

It opens up a new dynamic of tournaments and cash games for players who have been limited since November 2019 to the one site of PokerStars. Though those players have the good fortune of living in one of the few states with any legal online poker option, their patience was further tested when Michigan leapfrogged Pennsylvania by having multiple options available — the same ones from PokerStars and BetMGM — within two months after iGaming began in that state this year.
