ICE Online Gambling Affiliate Party January 2012

The Sports Betting Community (SBC) in association with iGaming Super Show announced that its second Ice, Ice, Baby party will be bigger and better than last years.

This years’ event will take place on Tuesday 24th January with the venue being the über cool Grace Bar in the heart of London’s trendy Soho with a capacity for 1,100 iGaming professionals.

The evening which offers a relaxed environment to entertain existing clients and generate new business leads, will include free drinks and food courtesy of organisers and event sponsors, Betradar, Sofort, RealEX Payments, Square in the Air, Paysafecard, Daily Sports, Ukash, and the Press Association with media partners’ iGaming Business and Intergamingi and the Show Daily. 

Rasmus Soejmark, SBC Founder and CEO said, “After the phenomenal success of last year’s inaugural Ice, Ice, Baby party held on the first evening of the opening of the world famous ICE Totally Gaming Show, which was attended by 800 of the top movers and shakers of the iGaming industry, we had to secure a larger venue to accommodate the demand for invitations and from sponsors.”

While Alex Pratt, iGaming Business publisher added, “Last year’s inaugural Ice, Ice, Baby networking party was an incredible success and a great way for us to talk to some of the key industry decision makers about the iGaming Super Show and show them some of the hospitality they can expect when attending an iGaming Business event.  With a bigger venue, more bar spend and a few surprises in store we are confident that this year will surpass everyone’s expectations”

Ben Cleminson, Director of Square in the Air said, “The 2011 Ice, Ice, Baby party was a fantastic evening and the perfect place to let your hair down after a busy first day at ICE. This year’s event is set to be even bigger – and better – so we’re delighted to be on board. This time the drinks are on us!”

You need to collect your exclusive invite at the ICE Show during the course of Tuesday from the Sponsors or at the iGaming Business stand #5190 and the EveryMatrix stand #5440. We advise you to pick your invite up early in the day since last year all invites were snapped up immediately.

Floridians Want Las Vegas-Style Casino Gambling - Floridians narrowly support the creation of casino resorts even though most of them believe that they would be good for the state's economy, a new poll released today found.  The poll, by Quinnipiac University, also found that Florida voters overwhelmingly oppose the idea of cutting Medicaid spending to put more money into education.    On gambling, 48 percent of those polled said they support expanded casino gambling in the state, while 43 percent are opposed and 9 percent don't know. The question they were asked was: "Do you support or oppose the creation of non-Indian casinos in Florida, similar to those in Atlantic City and Las Vegas?"  Despite that slim margin of support, a much larger group believes they would help the economy, even if they don't want them here. By a 61-33 percent margin, respondents said they thought casino gambling would boost the economy. [News Service of Florida]

New Jersey Lawmakers Pass Sports Betting Bill in Waning Minutes – A measure to legalize sports betting in the state of New Jersey sailed through both the state Senate and Assembly late Monday, but with few minutes to spare as this was the final day of the last session.  A new session was to begin Tuesday (Jan. 10) and the bill would have had to be reintroduced.  That could have resulted in significant delays in getting this piece of legislation passed.  Residents of New Jersey overwhelmingly voted in favor of a referendum to bring sports betting to their state back in November.  Next stop:  The Governor’s desk and Gov. Chris Christie has made every indication that he will sign the bill.  The hardest part will be to have a federal law banning sports betting in all but a handful of states repealed.  []

How Do I Start a Sportsbook From Kansas?

Kansas was well represented in the 2023 NCAA Men's College Basketball Tournament once again.  While the Jayhawks entered as a No. 1 seed, it was KSU that advanced the furthest.  Kansas is a hot bed for bookies even though they now have state-regulated sports betting apps.

The bookies have had the run of Kentucky, but that will change soon as the commonwealth lawmakers just passed through a bill that will legalize mobile sports betting.  That doesn't mean there still won't be opportunities for the local books.

Below we list all the different US states and the current sports betting climate.  Every state has some opening for the local bookies, whether it be that state regulated books do not permit those under 21 from wagering (bookies often allow anyone 18 and up) or that betting is prohibited on in-state schools.

How Do I Start a Sportsbook From Illinois?

Illinois is an excellent state in which to be a bookie.  Even though the state now allows for betting on home teams like the Fighting Illini and Wildcats, you'll need to wager in person on those teams at a casino.  Not exactly the most convenient.  The local bookie makes things much easier by placing those team bets online using the pay per head software.
