Chris Christie Loses His Cool Over Sports Betting
If you love sports betting, then New Jersey is your destination. There are several reasons for this. First, New Jersey is home to professional teams and even professional sports teams like the New York Yankees and New Jersey Nets. This therefore means that there is a level of competition when it comes to tickets and seats available for these teams. In addition, New Jersey is home to some of the best sports to be played in the world. The New Jersey Devils is one of the best teams in hockey and the New Jersey Nets are another well loved professional team.
In addition to the professional teams, New Jersey has a great mix of local high school and college teams. The New Jersey High School Athletic Association is considered to be one of the best high school sports betting organizations in the United States. Its sports betting champion is the New Jersey Trio, which has won the national title six times. June is also the month when the annual NJ Little League Baseball tournament is held at Citi Field in New Jersey.
Another reason for investing in New Jersey sports betting is because it is home to the national collegiate athletic association, known as the NCAA. The NCAA is responsible for regulating baseball, basketball, football, soccer and volleyball. Therefore, any event that involves one of these sports can be gambled on by amateur sports betting enthusiasts. If a team wins in one of its games, it can greatly affect the performance of the team in its remaining games, and this is why the margins for these games are relatively smaller than those for professional games.
Sports bettors enjoy New Jersey because they can wager on almost any game there is. Sports books in New Jersey can be found in all major bookstores, including those in New Jersey casinos and racetrack facilities. In addition, there are numerous online sports betting sites available, which feature both regular gambling games and video poker games, and allow sports bettors to place bets on a variety of events taking place anywhere in the world. Online gambling allows a sports bettor to place his or her bet with only a few clicks of the mouse and can then take care of everything from the sidelines.
However, the New Jersey Supreme Court has recently ruled that the New Jersey State Gaming Control Commission was within its rights to deny Poker Star Professional Services, Inc. the right to advertise an internet gaming site based out of New Jersey because the said agency did not have valid business reasons. According to the ruling, the New Jersey Gaming Commission was within its rights to deny Poker Star the right to operate a sports betting website in New Jersey due to the fact that the said organization did not have a valid casino license. The court insisted that it is the state’s prerogative to regulate gambling, and that the gaming commission has the right to deny someone the right to do so. However, the New Jersey Supreme Court has refused to hear the case, and said that it was considering all of its merits. Hence, the matter has been forwarded to the supreme court for further review.
What exactly constitutes illegal gambling? There are many gray areas when it comes to this question, but basically, any activity that goes beyond what is considered sports betting by a legitimate licensed casino is illegal gambling. Gambling is legal when it is done at a licensed casino and is thus classified under the law of commerce, where one may engage in “commerce as to the raising or fixing of value”. In other words, there are many grey areas when it comes to the definition of what constitutes illegal gambling. For instance, some claim that social gambling, like that which takes place at an online sports betting site, falls under the category of illegal gambling since the interaction involved here is not primarily for profit (e.g. gambling) but rather for chances (e.g.
Many legal sports betting activities are considered by many to be gambling activities. For instance, wagering on basketball games between two teams (including overtime), the opening or closing of a sports book, horse races, baseball matches, soccer games, etc., involve odds and chances which cannot be manipulated. In many regards, there is no gambling happening, because there is never a “win” or “lose” scenario in which the outcome can be predicted. This is what makes sports betting legal – if you are wagering with your hard-earned money, then you should be able to get your money back if you lose. If you do win, then obviously you will be required to pay your winner’s fee. However, if you are a gambler and you have taken advantage of a system which is, in essence, giving you an unfair advantage, then you are in violation of the law, regardless of whether you actually did win lose, or otherwise take advantage of the system.
The question of whether Chris Christie is guilty of sports betting infractions is one which will be resolved by the New Jersey Department of Licensing and Regulation. A report was released this month, which found that Christie had failed to disclose his stake in a sports book while running for office. Sports books are only accessible to people who hold a state licensed sports trading license, and Christie did not fulfill this requirement. The Attorney General is expected to announce soon, however, whether or not he will file criminal charges against Chris Christie.
