Would This Be Useful?

Hey everyone, this is not spam, I promise. I created a website (www.allstargamble.com). I have partnered with sportsbook.com and offering a rare 100% first deposit bonus through my website to sportsbook.com (the usual is only 10%). In addition, I am attempting to create a website in which online gamblers can go to use resources that will help them make educated bets. For example, the website has live odds, matchups with detailed stats, live scores, and other things of that nature. I would appreciate it if you all could check it out, and let me know whether or not you think this is useful. Can you see people visiting this website? Would someone who frequently bets on sports visit this website? Is the 100% deposit bonus very appealing? Call this market research I guess.

Would You Take The Money, Or Keep Your Pride?

I know this question could pertain to any sport, but I chose football to give you guys and gals a break from Plaxico.
Hypothetically speaking, lets say you are a pro athlete (you name the sport), and you knew you could make more money by tanking the game (because you have bet against your team and you could make millions) then by winning, would you lose on purpose?
Would you take the chance at more money than you already make, or is your pride more important?

How Much Money Would I Need To Set Up A Betting Shop??

This is a regulated industry to exactly protect punters from people like you. The short answer is „enough” to cover the bets and enough to the regulator to cover your defaults in case you take on more than you can chew. An agency is a different position altogether – you take bets on behalf of someone else. You are only collecting a commission. With electronic betting micro payments can be transacted. However refer to the recent US case about offshore betting. I would not recomment taking this path. There are a lot of moral issues at work. Do something more constructive. It is good for the soul and you will be more proud of yourself in the long run!

Two movies: Ressurection and The Dead Zone. One had to do with healing others after a near death experience and putting up with the notoriety and pressure to heal those who came to you, and the other had to do with episodic visions of things that would happen( kids playing hockey on a pond where the ice was starting to break, and a senator who would become president and start WW111. No lottery ticket visions or sports outcome betting millionaires.
