Reminder: Ten Years Ago This Week NFL Warned of the Ills of Sports Betting

New Jersey ultimately won its suit in the Supreme Court.  It only took maybe a few days for the NFL and all the other leagues to join the party.  The rest is pretty much history.

So much for the injuries and ‘irreparably harmed’.

Wait for it: "After recording more than $4.5 billion wagered in 2019 – the first full calendar year of legal betting – New Jersey finished 2020 as the largest sports betting market in America with over $6 billion in wagers placed. This is a full 28 percent of the entire annual US sports betting handle in one state."

Their brand will have plenty of LED advertising exposure.

"This is a great partnership that will give Bally Bet and our other Bally's Interactive brands terrific visibility in New York," says Adi Dhandhania, Chief Operating Officer of Bally's Interactive North America, the digital and sports betting division of Bally's Corporation. "The Yankees' history as a franchise and their popularity as a global brand speaks for itself."

"We are excited to begin this partnership with Bally's," said Michael J. Tusiani, New York Yankees Senior Vice President of Partnerships. "We hope that their branding in Yankee Stadium along with their in-Stadium customer engagement will greatly strengthen Bally's overall gaming presence in New York."
