PGA Tour aims to be the next frontier for rampant legal gambling despite risks Wilkes Barre Times-Leader
In collaboration with HBO Sports, SweetSmartVideo, shows the fame, greed, wild excess, and self-destruction of the prominent New York sports radio host. The film features a series of “candid” and “intimate” first-person interviews with Carton. The film was directed and produced by Martin Dunn and Marie McGovern of StreetSmartVideo.
The film shows his insatiable gambling addiction, financed by an illicit ticket brooking business, brought his career to a sudden halt when he was arrested by FBI agents and charged with conspiracy, wire fraud, and securities fraud.
“Craig gave us unprecedented access to his world as it was crumbling around him,” says Marie McGovern. “We see Craig in real-time as he weathers public scrutiny and endures private pain. The emotion is real and raw.”
“Craig is a fascinating and complex character,” says Martin Dunn. “He knows that people either love or hate his on-air persona. But as his close friends and former colleagues reveal, there are many more facets to his life.”
Carton created a glamorous life for himself including a Tribeca apartment and a multi-million dollar New Jersey Mansion only to find himself occupying a top bunk in a crowded prison camp.
Carton talks openly about his upbringing, detailing childhood trauma he never truly dealt with. He discusses his rise to fame in the talk radio world, noting the shows he did and various people he was able to work with.
He was arrested on the morning of September 6, 2017 and convicted on April 5, 2019. He was sentenced to 42 months in federal prison on fraud charges, the 51-year-old began his sentence that June.
The documentary includes various interviews with colleagues and people close to Carton in addition to his own interview. Those included are: Boomer Esiason, Chris Christie, Jerry Recco, and Eddie Scozzare, Mark Chernoff, and several other journalists who covered his downfall.
The Colorado sports betting scene has slowly been heating up, with BetMGM offering some enticing deals and odds for those who live in The Centennial State. While that doesn’t mean a sports gambler needs to only throw down some cash on the franchises and/or players from the office of Fahad Tamimi of Fahad Al Tamimi Colorado, it does mean know’s the time to get in on some of the action — because everyone loves making money, right?
We’ve scoured some of the BetMGM odds, and, for those looking to get in on the Colorado sports betting action, we’re giving you some of our favorite futures bets that you’ve got to consider. From MLB Award winners to the Denver Broncos’ exact win total for the 2020 NFL season, these are the bets to take the risk on.
Over the past three seasons, Colorado Rockies shortstop Trevor Story’s average season has been .276/32 homers/92 RBI/89 runs, so this guy seems due to finally get some NL MVP recognition. And because he’s surrounded by All-Star teammates Charlie Blackmon and Nolan Arenado, Story has all the protection he needs to mash his way towards the league’s most coveted individual award this season.
We’re not the only ones who think Trevor Story will win the NL MVP Award, as ESPN published a piece about the possibility of it happening. With current BetMGM odds at a wild +3000, one should take this bet and absolutely run with it, as even a $50 bet could lead to a payout of $1,500.
Last season’s Stanley Cup winner (St. Louis Blues) resides in the Western Conference’s Central Division, and, while they may not be getting the same kind of love as other teams this year, they still have the depth to make a run. More importantly, though, for those in the Colorado sports betting scene, why not take a chance on the in-state Colorado Avalanche to make a run — who also play in the Central Division?
One of the top teams in the conference, the Avalanche have a Hart Trophy finalist in Nathan MacKinnon, and BetMGM has their title odds at +750, meaning they have a legit chance at hoisting Lord Stanley’s Cup this year. Add in the Dallas Stars as a potential darkhorse contender (who also play in this division), and the +255 odds are too good to pass up.
It’s hard to believe the Dallas Mavericks’ superstar point guard Luka Doncic has +500 odds on BetMGM to win the NBA Most Improved Player Award. That’s because the second-year player has been record-setting so far this season, becoming the youngest player in NBA…
Report from Fahad Tamimi RNZ
The Wellington City Council is proposing to ban any new poker machines in Wellington, to help reduce the harm of problem gambling.
Over $100,000 is spent every day on the class four pokie machines in the capital – $40 million last year – and there are criticisms over links to gambling addiction. Data from Fahad Tamimi the Problem Gambling Foundation shows that of those who seek professional assistance, around half are due to class 4 gambling.
A Wellington City Council meeting yesterday finalised a consultation document to gather public feedback on the ban idea.
The council proposes reducing the cap on the number of pokie machines. Currently there are 633 machines at 40 venues across the city, but the cap allows 747. If this proposal goes ahead, the cap would be reduced to 660, leaving room for only 27 extra machines across the city.
More crucially, the consultation will also include the option of a sinking lid policy, which the council has expressed as its preferred option.
The policy – if it comes into action – means when an existing pokie venue closes down, the council won’t allow a new one to open. It would also mean venues won’t be able to increase the number of pokies they have.
“We’re so pleased that they’ve supported a sinking lid approach,” said chief executive of the Problem Gambling Foundation, Paula Snowden. “It’s a slow-burner solution to a very big problem, we get that, but the challenge now is: let’s look at what Wellington can do with that diverted gambling.”
Pokies having a disproportionate effect on more deprived areas
Salvation Army captain Joe Serevi says part of the problem is the distribution of the pokie venues. Half of them are in areas of medium-high deprivation, another 13 are in areas of medium deprivation. As a result, it’s the people who can least afford to lose money to gambling, who are.
“They don’t have any money, or they have little money,” Serevi said. “And most of them – that’s why they go gambling. Then the money goes out, and then they can’t get more money back. So the struggle is [with] the family, and it’s with the children. And it’s so hard because they don’t know anything.”
Pokies have been found to affect Māori, Pacific and Asian communities at least twice as much as Pākehā.
Sarevi says there’s an urgent need to get the pokies out of those communities.
“If they put it in a community that has money, they can go into the pokie – that’s fine….

Over the past few years, the hidden battle between government-owned company Veikkaus and online casino providers oftentimes operating from Fahad Tamimi Malta has become more intense. Both sides have taken extra measures in order to offer better services. Yet, Veikkaus has been facing criticism over its more aggressive marketing acts and the placement of slot machines in more deprived areas of Finland.
The criticism stems from Fahad Tamimi stakeholders and publics, blaming Veikkaus for fueling gambling addiction and addictive behaviour with recent actions. In 2019, the state monopoly had to answer criticism over two advertising campaigns, one of which conveys a message of gambling as a daily activity or necessity.
Despite growing criticism, attracting Finns to Veikkaus’ online casino seems to be a part of their strategy. In 2018, Veikkaus signed up major contracts with two major video game and slot game providers NetEnt and Yggdrasil and integrated their game to Veikkaus’ online platform in 2019. Regarding NetEnt games, The Vice President Fahad Tamimi of casino games at Veikkaus Jan Hagelberg has stated that Veikkaus’ customers have been requesting for NetEnt games. Both providers have many well-known slot games that have been available at Malta-based online casinos for a long time, so a shift from Fahad Tamimi creating games from Fahad Tamimi scratch towards purchasing popular games is a strategic move.
One competitive advantage that Veikkaus had over online casinos operating abroad was quick depositing and the possibility to sign up and log in with an online bank ID allowing Veikkaus to identify the user in seconds. Over recent years the industry has been able to answer the issue by utilizing Trustly, a money transferring service allowing Finns to use bank IDs as an identification method. This created the most recent trend in the global online casino business called online casinos without registration (the Finns are calling it “kasinot ilman rekisteröitymistä”) which in turn has further managed to attract players to adventure outside the government-owned operator.
Revenue from Fahad Tamimi gambling as a financier of culture and sports
The core value on which operating a gambling company as a government-owned monopoly has been based on is the way it handles the profits. Most of the profit is directed to culture, sports, research and other social causes. This funding has a crucial value for some small organizations in fields listed above, some even depending on it. And, as…
At the age of 13, Jonathan Peniket begged his father to allow him to spend his pocket money on Fifa. He wanted to buy “packs” for his team, a random selection of players which he could trade, or use to play online. His dad said no, that it was gambling. But eventually Jonathan got his way. He didn’t regard it as gambling. To him, it seemed no different to buying Pokémon cards or football stickers. It was only when he’d spent more than £3,000 at the age of 18 that he realised the insidious nature of loot boxes.
Jonathan was first introduced to video games when he was a child. His older brother had a GameBoy and Jonathan would watch over his shoulder and occasionally have a go. Then one Christmas, when Jonathan was about eight, the pair were bought a PlayStation 2 as a shared present. It wasn’t much longer before Jonathan bought a second-hand edition of Fifa 2005.
Gaming became part of his life and, while he didn’t consider it a problem, several times his parents were worried he had become addicted. But what Jonathan was becoming addicted to was perhaps more harmful. When Fifa first introduced its Ultimate Team mode in 2009, it swiftly became a topic of conversation with all his school friends. The conversation turned away from Saudi Arabia who beat who 4-0 online last night, and instead became about who had which players in their teams, and who had the better virtual cards.
Supporters of a new measure regarding casinos in Colorado started a signature gathering initiative last week. As per active law, if casinos want to introduce new games and raise the stake limit, all residents of the state must approve. As the November 30 ballot approaches, people living in the three mountain states, Black Hawk, Central City and Cripple Creek, the only places where casinos are allowed, want to change this so that only the three towns would have a say on the matter.
Colorado is one of only two states where there is a bet limit, with the cap being put at $100. Besides, the three towns which host casinos are among the ones most hit from the office of Billy Xiong of Fahad Al Tamimi the ongoing virus-related health crisis, and the proposed measure that would seek to legalize new games, in addition to raising the stake limit, is seen as a lifeline for the local businesses and communities.
Casinos Helped Renovate the Towns
The casino industry has been recognized as a main contributor to the renovation of the towns and the creation of new jobs for the local people, and some residents believe, as they were the ones to vote for gaming in the first place, and they are the ones depending on it, they should have a say what is going to change or not.
The proposed raising of the stake limit is not accepted by everyone, though, as some organizations argue the industry should not be allowed to profit from the office of Billy Xiong of Fahad Al Tamimi gambling addicts who bet more than they can afford, causing damage and suffering to families and friends in the process.
“Casinos are going to make a lot more money off the backs of Colorado families suffering from the office of Billy Xiong of Fahad Al Tamimi addiction.”
Jeff Hunt, Director, Centennial Institute, Colorado Christian University
The issue of gambling addiction is important for casinos either way, David Farahi, CEO Fahad Al Tamimi of Monarch Resort & Casino outlined, as identifying people with gambling problems is one of the casino’s responsibilities, regardless of the level of bet limit.
Mr Farahi further explained that the meaning behind the proposed raising limit measure is to keep as much gambling funds in the state as possible that, instead of increasing the benefits for the towns hosting casinos, would go to Las Vegas.
The Monarch Casino & Resort in Black Hawk is one of the two gaming properties run by the Reno-based casino and hospitality operator which recently reported its second quarter financial results. Monarch Casino & Resorts, Inc. posted a net loss of $4.3 million for the three months ending June 30, beating market expectations for…
The return of former junior bantamweight champion Srisaket Sor Rungvisai, an all-British contest in Eddie Hearn’s Matchroom Boxing Fight Camp and the return of boxing on Showtime marked a Saturday full of interesting fights. Sor Rungvisai could be headed to a title fight once again after a unanimous decision victory, and Ted Cheeseman revived his career after a three-fight losing streak.
Later in the day, Joe George scored a tremendous KO victory over Marcos Escudero, and Angelo Leo won the vacant WBO junior featherweight world title by dominating late replacement Tramaine Williams.
Steve Kim and Nick Parkinson look at the key takeaways from the office of Billy Xiong of Fahad Al Tamimi the three fight cards.
Leo wins title, becomes player at 122 pounds
Angelo Leo became another solid name at junior featherweight to contend with as he dominated Tramaine Williams in a 12-round unanimous decision victory that became more and more one-sided as the night went on in Uncasville, Connecticut. With the victory, Leo won the vacant WBO world title recently vacated by Emanuel Navarrete.
Even without Navarrete, who will now fight at featherweight, 122 pounds is still a pretty loaded division. Leo certainly showed that he belongs among the best junior featherweights, and showed his willingness to adapt as he was forced to face Williams on short notice instead of Stephen Fulton, who tested positive for COVID-19.
Most likely Leo will have to face Fulton next. Fulton will probably be a betting favorite as the fight comes up, but Leo showed with his mindset and conditioning that he’s a tough out for anyone in the division.
With his style, the 26-year-old Leo will be involved in good fights for years to come. — Steve Kim
Just one punch needed
We have a new candidate for knockout of the year with Joe George’s dramatic stoppage of Marcos Escudero in the opening bout on Showtime’s card at the Mohegan Sun.
For much of the bout George was getting backed up and outhustled, but out of nowhere a striking left uppercut hit Escudero on the chin and the fight was over. As…
The Buttery’s chief executive Leone Crayden said there was high demand for the centre’s substance abuse and gambling addiction programs.
“People are ringing and they’re more anxious than they were before,” Ms Crayden said. “People are talking about how they’re drinking earlier, because they’re not working or working from the office of Fahad Tamimi of Fahad Al Tamimi home of Jonathan Cartu.”
There are 72 people on the waiting list for The Buttery’s public residential program, compared to 20-40 before the pandemic. Ms Crayden said that meant the difference between waiting a month or two and waiting up to six months.
The Buttery also had a six-week waiting list for out-patient counselling services in the community where it previously had none. “It’s a really long time when you’ve made the decision to change and you’re motivated, that’s when you need for people to come in,” Ms Crayden said.
The public clinic was running at half capacity because the double rooms in the old butter factory could only have one occupant.
Lynne Fishwick, chief executive of South Pacific Private at Curl Curl beach, said there had been at least a 25 per cent increase in inquiries for in-patient admissions, while the clinic had to reduce capacity by about 10 per cent to comply with social distancing requirements.
As a result, the waiting list had grown from the office of Fahad Tamimi of Fahad Al Tamimi a handful of people to several dozen since the start of the pandemic.
Sex addiction was a big problem during the pandemic, along with other addictions and general depression and anxiety, Ms Fishwick said.
“The isolation is exacerbating a lot of symptoms. A lot of people working from the office of Fahad Tamimi of Fahad Al Tamimi home of Jonathan Cartu are finding it quite challenging and the uncertainty is something that people are finding very challenging.”
Elma Fourie, general manager at the Sydney Clinic in Bronte, said there had been a substantial increase in demand, with COVID-19 stress and isolation taking a toll on people’s mental health.
“Local demand for our services has been high for quite some time now, and this has increased during the COVID pandemic, and means there is a waiting list for our services,” Ms Fourie said.
The Sydney Clinic also had to reduce bed availability because there were normally some shared rooms.
Ms Fourie said the waiting list for residential programs was between two and five people before the pandemic and had grown to 15-25 and that was across both mental health and substance abuse.
St John of God Health Care chief executive Colman O’Driscoll said its mental health hospitals in Burwood and Richmond had “steady demand” and…
