    2 NJ Casinos Busted Taking Illegal Wagers

    Sports betting has been a boon for Atlantic City casinos, but it hasn’t always gone smoothly.



    Recent filings show that two of the city’s casinos have been fined by the state for breaking sports betting laws during college football season.



    Golden Nugget Atlantic City and Caesars Entertainment Corp. were both penalized by the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement for taking bets involving college football teams from New Jersey. Caesars owns two casinos with sports books in Atlantic City --- Bally’s Atlantic City and Harrah’s Resort Atlantic City.




    When sports betting became legal in New Jersey, the law was written to prevent any wagers from being placed on collegiate teams from New Jersey. That applies to every Garden State university, from big names like Rutgers and Seton Hall to smaller programs like Princeton and Monmouth. The law also prevents betting on any college sporting events that take place in New Jersey, even if they don’t involve New Jersey schools.



    The restrictions on betting on Garden State colleges (and high schools) is meant to prevent prevent local point-shaving scandals, according to SB Nation.



    Neither the state Division of Gaming Enforcement, Caesars, nor the Golden Nugget responded to requests for comment on Wednesday.



    “Prohibited sporting events were posted and wagers were placed on those events,” Kerry Langan, a spokeswoman for the Division of Gaming Enforcement, told the Press of Atlantic City. “All improperly posted bets were voided and if the gamblers were known, those funds were returned to them.”



    Caesars was hit with a $2,000 fine for accepting bets on the Rutgers-Kansas football game that was played on Sept. 10, according to state filings. The state does not specify which of the Caesars properties accepted the bets. The Division of Gaming Enforcement notified Casesars of the violation on Nov. 20, and the fine was imposed on Dec. 15.



    Golden Nugget, meanwhile, was forced to forfeit $390 it had accepted on wagers by “unknown individuals” for “various New Jersey college football games in September 2018,” according to state filings. The state filed its complaint on Nov. 2, and Golden Nugget was ordered to forfeit the money on Dec. 13. The bettors were not repaid because their identities could not be determined.

    So they can't take bets from NJ colleges to prevent local point shaving but criminals could go a few more miles up to Philly colleges where betting on games in Atlantic City is not illegal.

    If someone wanted to enlist a college student from NJ in point shaving all they would have to do is call a friend in Vegas to make the bets.

    Really someone tried to shave points at a game by placing a $390 bet? Was that so that the football team can buy ice-cream after the game?

    JJ quit posting stupid stories.
