You need to see the "big picture" that Cantor Fitzgerald was orchestrating with their Cantor Tech division. In order of implementation...
1. They buy LVSC
2. They set up a deal with the Marnells to run the book at The M
3. They bring their technology from England into the States
4. They start to integrate their operation onto the Strip...Pallazzo, Venetian, Hard Rock, Tropicana, The Cosmopolitan...more to come...
5. They convince the NGC to let them bring "investment bookmaking options" to the sportsbooks
And you are upset that they are...at this time only...avoiding phone and online accounts?....Not only is that just a really minor subchapter to what they are doing; but, frankly...it's "chump change" compared to where they are taking their business operation.
To use a Wall Street analogy here....You are the penny stock guy and they are the underwriters for major LBO's.....You and Cantor are in two different worlds, with two different agendas....
Please understand, I mean no disrespect here....But comparing what Cantor is not giving you to what you are getting from the Fertitta's is not right. You're a local, you care about making your bet, getting a good line, winning some money...all well and good. That's why any local operation can be your book of choice....just don't assume that Cantor is that "local operation" just because they used the Marnells to develop their business in Nevada. Your negativity and, frankly, anger, is misplaced here.
Once again, no disrespect meant here at all...just hope that you can see what they are doing compared to what others have done.
