Sports Betting Revenues Falling Short of States’ Expectations
Legalized sports betting has failed to generate the revenue expected in Rhode Island. The state initially budgeted for $23.5 million in gambling related revenues for the fiscal year ending in June 2019 (began in Nov. ’18). The target was lowered to $11.5 million in January, but R.I. lottery officials are reporting that the state has posted just 1.3% of that total ($150,000) to date. Governor Gina Raimondo attributed the shortfall to “a little bit [of a] later start than we thought”; wagering volume ($250 million anticipated vs. $813 million projected) and gambler performance (better than expected) have also forced the need for a rebalancing of the budget. While it’s all but assured that Rhode Island will fall short of January’s revamped projection, it should experience significant revenue growth in 2020; Raimondo signed a bill last week that will permit online sports betting within the state. Howie Long-Short: The Patriots Super Bowl win contributed to a tough February for Rhode Island’s sportsbooks – the pair lost a combined $890,000 on $20.7 million in wagers during the month. They’re off to a better start in March, having raked in +/- $1 million over the first weekend of the NCAA tournament. The state is entitled to 51% of sports betting revenues (after expenses). Rhode Island is certainly not a proxy for the country – it has just 2 licensed casinos – but “most of the states” that have passed legislation since PASPA was struck down have fallen short of projections. It’s certainly no coincidence that like Rhode Island, all but New Jersey (which out-earned Nevada for the 1st time in Jan.) failed to establish mobile/online as an option. Rhode Island’s 2020 budget assumes sports betting will bring in $30.3 million in revenue, including $3 million in mobile fees. Democratic Senate President Dominick Ruggerio has acknowledged that the financial forecasts will need to be rebalanced (see: lowered) in the wake of fiscal 2019 results, but the nominal revenue Raimondo attributed to mobile – relative to the total income projected – makes me think they’re still getting bad “information” (or that they simply don’t understand the marketplace). New Jersey sportsbooks generated 80% of their January revenue from mobile and online platforms. Once Twin Rivers begins taking online/mobile bets, business will pick up. It will become easier for residents of the state to place wagers and with Massachusetts yet to legalize sports betting, the Rhode Island licensee should pick up some action from residents of the neighboring state (via the William Hill app). For reference purposes, FanDuel claims 9% of its New Jersey business comes from those living in New York and another 4% from those based in Pennsylvania. The 2020 budget assumes mobile sports betting will be available next winter, but there’s a current push within the Assembly to have it in place by the start of the NFL season. Rhode Island’s 2 casinos (Lincoln and Tiverton) are owned by Twin River Worldwide Holdings. On Friday, the company (which also owns the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Biloxi, MS) “added to its geographic base” closing on the purchase of Dover Downs Gaming & Entertainment. Shares of Twin River common stock subsequently began trading (at $29) on the New York Stock Exchange under the symbol TRWH. Fan Marino: 75% of those who placed bets (against the spread) on the Super Bowl at Rhode Island’s 2 brick and mortar casinos took the hometown Patriots; as a result, the pair lost $2.3 million on the game. It’s not atypical for a sportsbook to take a loss on a big game – like the Super Bowl – when the hometown team covers. Fans bet with their hearts and the action tends to skew “towards the geographically favored team.” The books don’t move the lines to reflect the heavy action though, because doing so would leave them susceptible to sharp money (going the other way) taking advantage of mispriced odds.
TIFU by losing all my money, getting locked out of my hotel room in just my underwear and almost getting arrested
obligatory "this didn't happen today" sentence. I was staying at the Casino/Hotel in Biloxi, Ms for a work conference. At these conferences most people do more drinking/gambling than actual working. This particular evening I was planning on doing both. I had an hour or so to kill before dinner so I went to the atm and pulled out my maximum daily amount. After losing just $100, I put the rest of the money in my money clip on my wallet and walked to meet a client at Mary Mahoney's for dinner. He brought along some co workers of his and after the dinner we all exchanged business cards. During this process, my money clip came undone, and all my money fell out of my wallet. Not knowing I headed back to the hotel to start my big night of gambling. After finding the perfect seat at the blackjack table for my impending heater, I realized my money clip is empty and I've lost all my money without the thrill of actually losing it. I retrace my steps from the hotel to the restaurant many times before giving up. "I hope someone who needed it found that money" I tell myself, trying to find the silver lining. Since I've already pulled out my daily limit from the atm, I have no choice but to call it a night. I went up to my room, ordered pay per view and some room service. I like to sleep in my underwear and just my under wear, so I strip down, get in bed, eat my room service, and watch my movie. Then my night goes from bad to worse. Movie ends. I decided it would be best to clean up some before bed. So I take my room service tray out into the hall and set it down. As I'm setting down the tray, the door closes and locks behind me. Shit. I frantically try to shake the handle, just praying the door will by some miracle open. No miracles. I then knock on a few of the doors of my neighbors, hoping I can use their phone to call the front desk. Again, I'm in just my whitey tighties, no one answered or came to the door weirdly. Fear sets in. Realization Happens. "I'm going to have to go to the front desk and get another key" I start walking/jogging to the elevator. I pass a man, who just looks at me and doesn't even acknowledge I'm jogging and in my underwear. "Bless you" I think. I get in the elevator. As the elevator starts going down, I realize that I'm going to have to walk through the entire Casino to get to the front desk. My luck continues. Elevator opens to a group of about 20-25 middle aged women on a bachelorette party. This is quite possibly the worst thing that could have happened to me. Not only are all these woman hooting and hollering at me in my underwear, everyone in the Casino is now curious as to what is causing the commotion. I make my way through them feeling the warm eyes of everyone in the Casino as I walk, looking very much like Walter White season 1, in my underwear through the Casino. One of the security guards has noticed all this and has decided that he thinks I'm just some punk young adult trying to create a scene. He comes up behind me and immediately puts me in hand cuffs. I didn't even get one word out of my mouth before hand. Can this get worse? Police show up. Cops are now talking with security guard about what has happened. All the while, I'm now sitting, in my underwear, handcuffed, in the middle of the Casino floor. I still have not even gotten to tell anyone that I"m simply locked out of my room and extremely embarrassed. Finally, the cops start asking me, "what in the hell I'm thinking." I proceed to tell them everything that has just happened and that I'm actually staying at the hotel. Once they realized that this was simply a mistake and not me just being an asshole running around in my underwear, they uncuffed me. The security guard then called the front desk and confirmed my information and told me to go wait by my room and they would send someone up with the key. I went back up to my room and was sitting, in my underwear, by the door when a girl from the hotel walked up and said, "Yep, your clearly who I'm here to help." "sigh, yes...yes I am". It was sorta like that dream where you wake up in class in nothing but your underwear, execpt it was a Casino and it was real. TL;DR I lost all my money, went back to my room. While setting room service tray in hall the door closed and I was locked out in my underwear. Had to walk through casino to the front desk to get a key in just my underwear and was almost arrested for indecent exposure.
Florida road trip in March. Your thoughts, suggestions and recommendations?
My good friend from medical school and I are doing a little road trip around the South-East US in March. Since we both spend more time on Reddit than any other site, who better to talk to than fellow Redditors? This is our schedule, any input would be appreciated. I'll include the hotel we are staying at to aid suggestions. This road trip begins right after we are done in New Orleans with Mardi Gras March 9th. Biloxi, MS, at the Hard Rock Casino March 10th. Jacksonville, at the Hyatt Regency in downtown March 11th and 12th. Daytona Beach, hotel undecided March 13th and 14th. Orlando, hotel undecided but would prefer closer to UCF March 15th. Gainesville at the Hilton UF After that we head up to Atlanta and Athens. I'm most familiar with Orlando, usually staying in and around the Lake Buena Vista area but since most of my friends are around UCF it's the wrong location for me. I'm less familiar with Daytona and have only ever been to Gainesville or Jacksonville once before We don't have anything planned for any of our stops, we just want to go out, have a good time and meet new people. If any Redditors want to join us for a beer you're more than welcome. We're pretty big drinkers so it's not a '1 beer and out' situation with us. Ever A little about us. Well, we became very good friends in med school and are both doctors now. He's late 20s from Atlanta and I am in my mid 20s from England. We listen to a pretty wide array of music but nothing in the heavy metal area. Our favourite TV shows are The Wire, Arrested Development, Battlestar Galactica, Archer, Peep Show and The Inbetweeners. We're both well informed about politics, economics and religion but only ever discuss theories and ideas, we don't get into anything confrontational between ourselves or other people. Wow, that really sounds like an OKCupid profile but it's a pretty good summary, I think There you have it, either chime in with some advice, meet up for a beer or both! Look forward to hearing from you all
So my mom, grandma, and nanny all decided to go on a trip to Biloxi, MS for a few days. Last night, i decided to go to the arcade while they went to the casino. After a while, they took a break and went to the room, so i decided to take a break as well. i got back from the arcade and i took my black wallet out of my bag in the hotel room and counted all my change. i took the quarters and my arcade receipts and put it in my left converse, and put every other coin in my right shoe. i did this because i planned on wearing sandals the whole trip, but i arrived in converse, so i used them to separate my change. Then, i left my purse by my bag. My grandma, mom, and nanny left to the casino while i showered and i had the door latched to where no one could get in. after i showered, i took the latch off and my mom came in for a while. Then she leaves and i lay down and crash. They came back during the middle of the night while i slept, and my grandma stayed up all night because she couldn't sleep. well, i wake up this morning and i felt the need to look for my purse. For some reason i couldn't find it. We all looked EVERYWHERE, MULTIPLE times. i was even like, "yall, i won't be upset at all if you accidentally took it, i'm just upset because i left it right there next to the bag and it's gone, all i care about is if i find it fully intact." they were confused too because my nanny SAW me take my purse out of my bag before they left and i slept. It could not have left the room, and we're very organized, so there was no sign of my wallet. We suggested that maybe we remembered wrong or something, as we were open to literally any idea. So we went to the lobby, contacted lost and found in case it was still in the arcade by some crazy chance and nope, it wasn't there. we all knew 100% that it did NOT leave the room and neither did i, or anyone. no one could have broken in, but i most strongly believed housekeeping must have stolen it. The weirdest part is, i didn't want to bring my purse anywheres, i just felt some weird need to find it. So we go down several floors to my nanny's car and we're like "okay let's worry about this later, we gotta eat first" so i tried to take deep breaths and remind myself, "it's gonna be okay, we'll find it." i knew i left my polaroid camera under the seat in the car, so at least i had that. But what happened next was so strange. MY WALLET WAS NEXT TO THE CAMERA. My nanny had her keys on her this whole time, so nobody could have broken in or gone into her car, and i did not leave the room. My grandma stayed up all night, so nothing could have gotten past her. it was so weird how it got there because we never went to the car after 5pm, and i had my wallet in the room with me at 11/midnight to count my change. What happened next freaks me out so much. i found a picture, taken on my polaroid, in the mirror of our hotel room, with no one holding it, and no one else in the room. i keep my polaroids in my wallet, and i do NOT remember taking this. My grandma started crying and my nanny has a headache from this and we all caught the chills. However, more money showed up in my wallet. This is truly the most unexplainable moment i've ever had. The car was about 20 floors beneath us, and no one went back to the car. My nanny had her keys the whole time, and i remember putting my wallet down next to the bed before i went to sleep. My grandma is healthy and going strong so nothing would have made it past her. If anyone can give me ideas about what may have happened, i'd love to hear it. Trust me, i wish this was a fake story, maybe i could base a writing off of it, but the fact that it actually happened creeps me out so much. Doesn't help that i enjoy watching conspiracy theories late at night either.
I am obligated to say from the outset that I have never written a review in my life. I don't use this as an excuse for the poor quality of my descriptions, tastes and opinions, but, it does explain the format I decided to use. Cigar Broskies' system (with some minor variations considering it is a mystery cigar) is what I am basing my review on because I believe it to be the best with it's breakdown and scoring and I have no sense of imagination, creativity and originality. That being said, let's get to it. Note: If you are not familiar with Cigar Broskies review format (Why the hell aren't you reading those reviews?) it is broken down into 5 categories worth 20 points each. Since I don't know how much this cigar costs, I am going to reassign the twenty “value” points. I believe that there is nothing more important than flavor, so I am going to make it's impact worth 30 points. The other ten points I am going to divide between Construction and Strength making each of their values worth 25. PIC Country: ? Wrapper origin: ? Wrapper type: ? Filler / Binder: ? Length: 6.5” Ring: 50-52? Cost: ? PIC Appearance: The most obvious thing about this cigar is it's “shaggy” foot. Thanks to the foot, no toasting was necessary when lighting. Besides the foot, the wrapper had a very “toothy” look. Correct me please, but, I think this means it is veiny and bumpy and rough looking. It is also a dark wrapper that I would guess is maduro. Overall it is an attractive cigar. (Points awarded: 16.5 out of 20) PIC Construction:The cigar was firm in my hand. This torpedo shaped cigar cut firmly and cleanly with my brand new Cuban Crafters “Perfect” cutter (thanks Chuck). The pre-light draw was....firm, but, not tight. It tasted like a cigar. This thing lit up like a forest fire with it's shaggy foot. (Points awarded 21 out of 25) PICPICPIC Strength: At first light this is not a real heavy cigar. I think that is because of the unwrapped “shaggy” foot. Things start out not light but not heavy either. Things change rather quickly when the wrapper gets fully involved. The only way I can describe it is “Full-Medium” flavor.. I personally gravitate to stronger cigars so this score may be a little high for people who prefer a milder cigar. (Points awarded 22 out of 25) PIC Flavor: This category, in my opinion, is the hardest because who can account for taste? And what the hell flavors did I just taste? That is exactly why it accounts for more points than any other category. I think I tasted wood and cocoa and wood. I know whether I liked a cigar or hated it. Or if it fell somewhere in between. I enjoyed every one of these that I smoked. (Points awarded 26 out of 30) PIC Addittional Notes: I smoked 3 cigars in the writing of this review, the last one of which is still smoking as I write this. I am a every day beer drinker. I drank Coors Light for the second two cigars but for the first one I had a very local, very tasty beer called Biloxi Blond. The only place to get it is at the Beau Rivage Hotel/Casino in Biloxi Ms. (Do you think I could get some endorsement dollars for that product placement?) PIC Overall: I am 46 yrs old and have been smoking cigars for less than two years. What the hell do I know? I know that this cigar lit up quickly and burned evenly all the way to the nub. I think they all took about one hour and 15-30 mins (who remembers when you lit it and when it went out?) and I know that the ash held on for about one inch increments. I know that I had fun smoking and trying to write a review on these cigars. And, finally, I am glad that Nivuahc, a true BOTL, included me in the 2nd Mystery Cigar review..I stand behind my final rating of 85.5. (Did I do the maths right? You know how we are with math.) Now, I think I have time to go smoke one of the Cuenca Y Blancos I have in my humidor. PICPIC BTW I have one more left. Would anyone like to try it and tell us what you think? I know Nivuahc would approve. Smoke on Brothers and Sisters.
So, after a few hours of google-fu and not really coming up with answers. I will ask the amazing powers of reddit. I am a Tn. permit holder and will be travelling to biloxi Ms. for a week in the summer, i will be staying at a casino hotel the whole time and I am wondering if it is legal to ccw at the casinos there. If i plan on drinking while gambling or even hitting any of the bars, the weapon will be locked away in a portable safe i carry with me either in the vehicle or hotel room. so no worry about actually having it on me while drinking. but if i am not drinking would it be legal to have the weapon ccw while on the floor or even in the hotel room? i am totally in the dark on how casinos are viewed and everyone seems to have a conflicting opinion on the matter.
Played Fri night at IP Casino in Biloxi. Fun place.
My cousin is based out of the Gulfport, MS Naval base so myself and his two older brothers went to hang with him before he gets deployed in July. We stayed at IP Casino. First off it was a nice hotel/casino for the money. $169 for the night before tax/resort fees etc. was the best deal in town for a nice hotel on a Friday night. They had low limit Craps, blackjack, let it ride, and Mississippi Stud tables running all time. There was a $5 Craps table that runs 24/7 but as expected was very crowded. I started the day playing some $5 Let it Ride. I bought in for $100 and hit trip 9's in my hand so that put me up to start the day (30-1 odds on the $5 3 card bet and 3-1 on all of the 5 card bets so about $200) Ended up leaving up $160. Played blackjack that night on a $10 table. Bought in for $250 walked off with $245 after 30 min or so. Walked over to one of the half dozen or so $10 Craps tables with my $245. Had a couple great rollers on my side. After an hour or so my cousins left the table down but I was up about $100 or so and stayed on. I hit a 15 min heater and ended up killing it on the 5, 6, and 8 bets while hitting a few points. I hit a few hardways. I'm up to $900 or so in chips. Table went cold over the next few rollers (including me) and I walked off with $675. So for the day/night I was up $575. It was a great time, the dealers and pit bosses were very helpful, and the staff was great. I would definitely recommend the IP Casino if you're in the Biloxi area.
Played in Biloxi,MS (long description of how it went)
I just got back from my weekend in Biloxi MS and wanted to put down my thoughts, experiences, and reviews while it’s fresh in my mind. I visited there with my family Thursday-Sunday and stayed at the Grand Hotel Casino and while I spent most of my time with my kids I got plenty of time in at various craps tables. This was my second visit since Katrina tore the town up but it was my first visit of more than one night so I had more time to check out other casinos on this trip. I brought $500 cash with me but planned on a maximum gambling loss of $300 for the trip. I figured at mostly $5 tables I should be able to have a good time. Harrah’s sends me lots of match-play vouchers and cheap room rates so I took a $59 room rate deal with a $5 match-play voucher and stayed at the clean but not too large Grand Hotel. The hotel ,casino, and staff are all nice. They have two full-size craps tables and one “craps no more” table. Thursday evening I went downstairs to play. One $5 table was open but crowded so I went to the second one that was busy but had space. I put down my money and then realized it’s a “craps no more” table with 2, 3, 11, 12 points available. I’ve never played those alternative craps version but have heard they generally don’t have as good of odds. Before I placed a bet I saw an opening at the other table and moved over to the regular table. It was a nice green felt table with no field 5 and I think double only field (I didn’t play field). They also offer the fire bet which is a dumb but sometimes fun bet. I played up/down an hour or so. I tried pass+come for a bit but my come bet kept crapping out or the come out roll would hit a 7 and I’d lose my previous come bets. IIRC I was down about $20 so I decided to take a walk with a nice Brickhouse cigar and head down to the Isle of Capri. I’ve never been to the Isle before so I signed up for the players club and got a $10 slots freeplay which I promptly turned into $19 of cash. I walked directly into the casino area so I can’t pass judgment on the hotel portion of the property but overall I’d rate the casino pretty low. It was stretched out long and skinny so every area felt small and cramped like individual rooms. The décor was dated and unoriginal. They have a truss wood beam ceiling which I guess is supposed to be lodge-like but to me it just made the space feel even smaller. I only saw one craps table. It was a $5 table with a dirty looking mustard yellow felt. I think I had a amber bock and spent most of my time trying to finish my cigar at the end of the table without blowing too much smoke next to my neighbors. I don’t even remember the play but I was down about $50 after 30 minutes to an hour so I figured that I would head back to the Grand to finish my night.
