    That doesnít make sense.

    Why let William Hill take over just to buy them off?

    Actually, it's about time.

    I wouldn't be surprised if this was in the works from long ago but the El Dorado deal was being completed.

    It does make sense, as long as WH backs the buyout and it sounds like they are.

    This is the beginning of the end for offshore books in the U.S. Caesars has more than enough Assets to crush any off shore book who tries to compete with them. Great news for we folks who have been loyal customers of Caesars over the years and own Caesars Stock.

    In time, Caesars will probably buy draftkings. William Hill had 2 choices on the table. Either sell to Caesars or compete with Caesars. They were going to sell to somebody. Wisely, they took the big bucks. Things are changing rapidly. The financials involved have all the top brass's undivided attention.

    We offer 110 all day long on major sports. There are downfalls with timeliness of posting odds and parlay offerings but that will get better.

    Quite frankly, we're scared of the volitility of early numbers. We'll do better in the future. I have faith and will encourage more risk out of the gate to please real gamblers.

    Like I've said though, 90% will buy at any price for action. Makes no difference.

    This is the only way US gambling companies can get involved in the US market. They don't know how to do anything but walk up and didn't think things would move this fast. They have to buy somebody out to get involved.

    Draftkings has by far the worst lines I've seen of any legal book. I mean they're atrocious. I've seen games before where their lines were juiced 30, 40, 50 cents over other legal books. I bet a baseball game last weekend at a legal book in IL at -108. I checked Draftkings just to compare same line was -140 but their dog price was the same as everywhere else. That's fukkin horrible. Straight garbage. I won't fukk with DK after initial bonus offer just cause their lines suck. No point. Gimmick book, they can't be taken seriously. They're the modern day equivalent of Bodog back in the 2000's. Juice everything to hell and back.

    How many different lines are there even now in Vegas, once this transformation takes place? 2? 3?
