LEGALIZED SPORTS BETTING EXPANDING BY LEAPS AND BOUNDS By John G. Brokopp Sports betting is unexplored territory for a vast majority of Americans. Apart from brackets for the NCAA men’s basketball championship tournament, squares for the Super Bowl, and fantasy leagues, it’s an entirely new experience. Wagering on sporting events is an occasional hobby for some, a regular pastime for others, and, as we learned earlier this year from Jeopardy champion James Holzhauer, a professional sports bettor who won more than $2.4 million

during a 32-game winning streak on the show, a serious pursuit for those who aren’t afraid to live on the edge. Since sports betting is new in casinos, observations are being made on the habits of sports bettors: Will they just stop by to place their bets and leave, will they stay to watch the games and take advantage of the food and beverage services, will they partake of the dining options, plan an overnight hotel stay, or give the gaming floor a whirl? “I can say all of the above,” Schuffert responded. “What we are seeing are many new guests coming through our doors for the first time, which is a good sign. Overall, we at Ameristar are very excited to be a part of this new venture and to see the response that the opportunity to place legal sports wagers has generated among the public.” Educating a new audience about the mechanics of betting on football, baseball, basketball, and a host of other athletic events, as well as studying the spreads revolving around favorites and underdogs, and understanding the variety of wagering options, will take some time. Boyd Gaming executives were quick to seize upon the revenue generating potential of legalized sports betting for its existing properties in states around the country. The company worked to secure a national partnership with FanDuel, the Continued on page 11

Theresa Caputo Live! The Experience Saturday, October 26 at 8pm

Psychic medium Theresa Caputo will showcase her amazing abilities live at Isleta Resort & Casino on Saturday, October 26. Theresa is the star of Long Island Medium, a reality television show about her life and extraordinary gift. She has been a practicing medium for more than twelve years and tours the country with her live show Theresa Caputo Live! The Experience. She is also the author of There’s More to Life Than This: Healing Messages, Remarkable Stories, and Insight from the Other Side, which debuted at No. 2 on the New York Times best seller list, and You Can’t Make This Stuff Up: Life Changing Lessons from Heaven. Come experience Theresa’s psychic abilities at Isleta Resort & Casino on October 26. For more information, visit www.isleta.com

I’ve been seeing, feeling, and sensing Spirit since I was four years old, but it wasn’t until I was in my 20s that I learned to communicate with souls in Heaven. After suffering from debilitating anxiety and trying to manage it on my own and with a therapist for years, my mom introduced me to a spiritual healer and teacher named Pat Longo. After just one session, she told me that I was suppressing Spirit’s energy, which caused a lot of my anxiety, and helped me learn to channel Spirit through my chakras and release it with my words. I began to heal and come into my own.

Continued from page 10 largest online sports destination in the country with eight million customers and a presence in 45 states. David Strow, the vice-president of corporate communications for Boyd Gaming, the owner and operator of Blue Chip Casino, Resort & Spa, views sports betting to introduce the entire casino entertainment experience to a new audience. “The true potential is the opportunity to grow and expand our customer base, particularly among the younger demographic,” Strow said. With all of the major sports events that lie ahead, including the MLB play-offs and World Series, NFL and college football games, the NHL, the NBA, and moving forward, the NCAA and NFL playoffs, the Super Bowl, and March Madness, the opportunities for major marketing and promotions are bountiful. “Sports fans in this market have long enjoyed what was previously available to them for fun, including fantasy leagues and such,” Strow observed. “Now they can have a real stake in the games they watch, which is the next big step ahead.”
