I was just wondering. It seems like if you are a serious gambler you would live in Vegas.

Why, so you can drive every day to place your bets?  Have to hold on to tickets and then go back to cash them?  Not be able to bet on player props, or reverse run lines?  Seems like it would be a hassle.

With low vig online books such as Pinny offering lines as low as -104 a side, and 5dimes offering -105 a side, why would someone want to place their wagers in vegas and pay at least -110 a side. As far as I know you can't find lines cheaper than that in Vegas. Also, there really is asbolutely no risk involved because books such as Pinnacle, 5dimes, Bookmaker, etc. aren't going anywhere. There is essentially no risk involved what so ever with A rated online sports books.

I live in a town of scumbag gamblers,but i'll never leave.

You can setup internet accounts at the casinos,but then you'd never leave the house.

No one in covers is a "serious gambler".  It's all fake units,  fudged records, wannabe touts and immature d-bags who never touched real tities in their life..  The only serious gambler is Billy Walter and his network.

With William Hill recently getting licensed in Nevada, his take over of over half the sportsbooks is going to change the game.  Rumor has it that all those prop bets you can get online will soon be available in their books as well.  That will most certainly prompt Cantor and the other books in town to do the same.  Everything is going online too so you don't have to go through any of those hassles you talked about.

Cantor gaming is sweet because you can bet at various sportsbooks without going to the casino considering if you are betting baseball you have to be there at 9am half the time. You really think prop bets is a primary way gamblers make money. That is comical at best. Also what is the hassle of going to a casino. I go up to the Palms or wherever and place my bets or bet thru Cantor and watch the games or play poker. In Vegas you can play 10 live hours in poker in one week and play a freeroll for 3-5k depending on the casino. Of course there are no professional gamblers on this site. There are some pretty decent players at specific sports. However gambling is all about information and the longer you are in Vegas the more people you meet. I have run into all different forms of people who have certain plays on different sports. During the NFL I talk to this 72 year old guy that hits the NFL which is the toughest sport to bet. At every casino there are regulars that are mostly pretty cool. Plus the books will tell you if you ask them what are they getting a lot of action on. It makes a difference. It all depends on what kind of living do you want to make. How are you filling out your taxes when you are gambling online which is illegal? The truth is nobody on here is really making that much coin because if you were you would just move to Vegas. Its hot as hell but no humidity and it has changed a lot and is much nicer.

Yeah, I live in Vegas as well. Offshores are more convenient when placing wagers and you have a hell of a lot more wagering options. But it sure is nice getting paid immediately and legally!

Like Dan said is true, it is quite a hassle! I used to live in Vegas but now moved back home to paradise. Line movements, driving, tickets, prop betting, etc etc. It takes a lot of time in your day, I am not a big time gambler but just trying to make a profit when there are games I like. But the folks that are there at the sports book never leave, its like a roller coaster it goes down and up and if you live in vegas and go to the the sports book its just that much easier while your there to make another bet! Chasing or not!
Good Luck to all & BET at your own risk folks!

I usually go to Vegas every year for the first 2 weeks of March Madness. I enjoy the atmosphere of being in a sportsbook just being around other people who enjoy the game like I do.

Sitting at home placing bets is easy but I would enjoy going to the sportsbook each day if I lived in Vegas especially now that I am retired.

As far as I know, nobody has been prosecuted by the federal government for gambling online.  And secondly, if you filed your taxes and stated your winnings from gambling, how would they really know where you obtained it?  For all they know, you went to the nearest casino and won.

You get taxed when it's over 10k, not $599 as someone mentioned.

kimoinsd808 -No one in covers is a "serious gambler". It's all fake units, fudged records, wannabe touts and immature d-bags who never touched real tities in their life.. The only serious gambler is Billy Walter and his network.

 

By serious what do you mean, $1,000,000 plays, yeah people here arn't doing that.....your right.  But I believe there are people posting units accurately and are pretty serious bettors.  It is just units vary.  Also, Vegas is fun and cool place to watch games but by NO MEANS do you need to live there to bet in today's day and age.

WHAT?!?!


This couldn't be further from the truth.  There is a huge risk associated with online gambling, if you don't believe that you're delusional.


Next thing you know, you'll be telling me you have your retirement pension held at Bookmaker.
