Fox Bet Coming to PA Soon

The Stars Group has spent the past nine months as part of the New Jersey sports betting industry. Its BetStars’ brand has helped the Resorts Atlantic City license amass $54.2 million in revenue since launching in September.

However, that brand will not carry over to Pennsylvania. Moreover, it will not remain in New Jersey.

Last month, the Stars Group announced a partnership with Fox Sports with the aim to roll out free-play and real-money betting apps across the US market under the brand name Fox Bet.

The real-money app, Fox Bet CEO Robin Chhabra confirmed at the time, will replace BetStars in New Jersey and will become the Stars Group’s flagship brand in Pennsylvania.  Read More Here

New York Post: MLB Sellouts With Wrigley Field Kiosk Betting

10:30 am ET - Phil Mushnick of the New York Post has essentially called Major League Baseball out as sellouts for the league's desire to start taking bets on games from kiosks strategically placed at Wrigley Field after years of disparaging remarks against sports gambling (not to mention, for years, they have condemned Pete Rose for betting on games).

He poses the following potential scenarios:

One can already envision Wrigley’s biggest gamblers — biggest losers — being comped the best seats like big bangers treated to the best seats to Wayne Newton concerts in Vegas. Will there be a “free” buffet for those who most often bet/lose the most? Sure, why not?

Will Wrigley remain open after Cubs’ games to take West Coast action on all sports?

Mushnick adds:

Rob Manfred, who, on behalf of the team owners who enrich and empower him, claims kids are MLB’s most important investment and future clients, has allowed — invited — bad-odds gambling to infest baseball.

Illinois recently opened the floodgates by legalizing sports betting and permitting the activity in arenas, stadiums and ballparks.
