    These people are so clueless. They have all this money and they are limiting people to $120? The max bet on Blackjack at the MGM Grand is $10,000 and that's not even in high stakes.

    They need to make the max bet at least $5,000 to be taken seriously.

    I bet there's high school kids out there taking action that will take more than 120
    I've seen some suggestions from professionals where they've said- They should not be allowed to limit below 10%. If they will take $50,000 on Yankees ML tonight, they must allow limited players to bet $5,000. If they will take $5,000, 10% limit would be $500. Anything beyond that is just not acceptable. People with $3 limits, $20 limits, whatever it may be is nonsense.

    Those that wanted "legal/regulated" books will miss offshores if they are gone at some point. Draftkings and Fanduel can go F themselves. Terrible companies, terrible bookmakers. Just a total joke.

    In my opinion if they are licensed and regulated and so above board and legit they shouldn't be able to limit or restrict players.

    They should easily be able to win enough money from the losers to pay out the couple guys who win consistently.

    These people are Mickey Mouse, kids stuff.

    This is impossible

    First off the US has tried this for 30 years and failed.

    But at least back when online gambling was illegal in the US they had a reasonable but poor arguement. They would arguing the gambling happens in the US. They could argue this is no different than selling illegal drugs into the US and shipping it here.

    Now with online gambling legal in the US there is no way to ban offshore sites. You might be able to tax them. This is no different than banning Toyota from important cars. That runs against international laws. Now you might be able to say offshore sites have to pay some kind of import tax but even that would be hard.

    US books are truly awful, yet have only served to help offshores... they normalized sports betting and took it out of the shadows, but offered such a terrible product, that the people have fled to use offshores... thereby increasing the offshore customer pool. US books exemplify a very special kind of stupid.

    Offshore is struggling a bit. They are not rolling in money like before.

    They will be fine but the books are down from before.

    I agree regulated US books must have made a small impact on offshore.

    The vast majority of the US customers have no clue that Offshore even exists.
