Senate and Assembly judiciary committees approved it, sending it to the Assembly where it passed unanimously. The Senate passed it at midday and sent it to the governor’s desk for signature.
Under a compromise, the fee was set at $500,000, though it gives the Nevada Gaming Commission authority to change the amount. New Jersey Gov. “Today I sign into law the framework that will usher in the next frontier of gaming in Nevada.”
“This was a lot of work and it couldn’t have been done without the governor’s leadership and vision,” he said.
AG Burnett, chairman of the Nevada Gaming Control Board, said the state already has about 20 applications from various operators, equipment and software vendors to be licensed for online gambling.
CARSON CITY, Nev. Chris Christie previously vetoed an online wagering bill but has indicated he may sign an amended version next week.
Sandoval and Nevada legislative leaders said it was important for Nevada to remain at the forefront of gambling regulation.
. Brian Sandoval signed legislation Thursday legalizing online gambling in Nevada, capping a dizzying day at the Legislature as lawmakers passed the bill through the Assembly and Senate as an emergency measure.
The measure makes Nevada the first state in the country to approve interstate online gaming, notes CBS Las Vegas affiliate KLAS-TV, adding that it was put on the fast track Thursday. It sailed through both the Assembly and Senate on Thursday after a joint hearing before the two judiciary committees.
Nevada wanted to beat New Jersey, its East Coast casino rival, to the online gambling punch. “It’s imperative for the success of this that we compact with other states because we don’t have a universe of players,” Ernaut said.
“As to our competitor, New Jersey, they should be accustomed to following Nevada,” he said.
Several other states began looking into online gambling after the Department of Justice issued a letter in 2011 stating that the federal Wire Act of 1961, often used to crack down on gambling over the Internet, only applies to sports betting.
Horne couldn’t resist at jab at Nevada’s gambling rivals.
Lawmakers in 2011 passed a bill that put Nevada in position to legalize Internet gambling if the federal government sanctioned it. But when those efforts failed in Congress, Sandoval said Nevada would work toward agreements with other states.
The bill approved Thursday resolved a disagreement between Horne and the governor’s office over licensing fees. A renewal fee was set at $250,000.
Partnering with other states gives Nevada an expanded customer market and provides other states with Nevada’s expertise in gambling regulation.
“We have the most mature financial, auditing and collection capabilities, much greater than some of those states, and they have the players,” he said.
Gambling regulators will now come up with regulations dictating compact parameters.
The benefit for other states, he said, is Nevada’s “most mature regulatory infrastructure.”
Sandoval, a former chairman of the Nevada Gaming Commission added, “This bill is critical to our state’s economy and ensures that we will continue to be the gold standard for gaming regulation.”
AB114 authorizes Nevada to enter into compacts with other states to offer Internet poker. Sandoval had pushed for companies that want to offer online gambling to pay a $500,000 fee, while Horne, in the original bill draft, proposed $1 million.
Horne, in turn, had equal accolades for the Republican governor.
He praised legislators for their swift action and commended Assembly Majority Leader William Horne, a Democrat from Las Vegas, for shepherding the bill.
Pete Ernaut, a lobbyist representing the Nevada Resort Association, said expanding the customer base was key.
“This is an historic day for the great state of Nevada,” Sandoval said, flanked by dozens of state lawmakers. Gov

School spirit in providing the sport: There are more and more number of schools who are giving many sports facilities to the students. The participation of girls now is increasing rapidly, where girls are taking active part on most of the sports. Students can opt for a sport, whereas some sports are compulsory.
No doubt it’s fun to watch your kid participating in the sports events. There was a mindset to have the child owning the academic excellence, even if he is zero in the sports but going by the opportunities, fitness factors etc parents have realized that sport is a part of academics.
Many schools have to the lottery system for students to access to the games popular sports like football, cricket. In India, slowly the culture is coming where parents are giving the importance to the sports, which was lacking in the past. Many colleges recognize sports as part of their core values, and help student athlete balancing between sports and academic career thus maintaining the highest level of integrity and sportsmanship.
Revenue: College Sports bring in money to the school in N number of ways. As early years have the most impact on the child, it’s important for the parents to research for the schools who provide good quality sports. This is very important advertising factor for the school. May not be your school, if you want your child to rule some sports.
The vast gaming facilities require a huge infrastructure, thus fees for these schools is generally very high. Many medium size school just have a playground, and sell it like they’ve all kinds of sports facilities. Also we want our child to be a good sportsman along with a very good in academic. Moreover college Sports create productive and responsible citizens, strengthening community feeling and create strong schools. The demand of schools providing good sports facilities is very high, and if one school is proving his superiority in the sports, of-course demand will increase as well.

College Sports for Girls: It is illegal to discriminate against women in any program of education. Time to time there are school and college competitions at every level. Skills continue to be refined during years of college and is the skill that eventually will make a success of student-athlete at work.
The importance for athletes in schools: Irrespective of, female or male athlete if you play to a very successful internal team, there are multi fold facilities for athletes. The revenue to the students is, they can go to extra mile to discover and prove themselves in the sports.. Many schools still manage by the vast funds they receive from the alumni, giving less burden to the students.
We enjoy watching sports in college as pure entertainment. Schools must comply with it, providing athletic opportunities by enrolling the girl students and having a continued expansion of athletic opportunities to girls. There are some who merely go for the fitness factor but many top schools take it very professionally and create sportsmen who can play at the district level, state level so that if somebody has interest and is good in some sports, he can join a sport institute as his career.
Many children join junior teams or community-based sports teams during his years in elementary school because their parents want them to learn the same fundamental values. This includes athletics and sports also. Early age is best to learn integrity, collaboration, communication and good sportsmanship
This system takes advantage of one of the few glaring inefficiencies in the parimutuel pools, namely that first and second time starters are badly over-bet.
Horse Racing System #2 – Bet horses that have an excuse for a poor performance in their last race. One of the few anomalies turned up by Michael Nunamaker in his pioneering computer study “Modern Impact Values”, published in 1994, was that horses breaking from the inside post position in route races won more than their fair share of races, and were under-bet by the public. This offers opportunity to more diligent players.
Horse Racing System #4 – Bet low-priced favorites to place. My computer studies of pedigree, based on nearly 100,000 races, suggest that using pedigree in that manner offers no advantage to the player.
First time starters return only about 60 cents on the dollar, and second time starters are only a little better, returning less than 70 cents on the dollar. My study suggests that’s not the case.
Horse Racing System #3 – In maiden claiming races, bet the horse with the best pedigree. They will, however increase the chances of a profitable day at the races by ensuring that your wager dollars go where they have the best chance of success. Let me let you in on a little secret about these “magic formulas”. In most case the public seems to take a horse’s last running line at face value. To the extent that most handicappers use pedigree at all, it’s usually to identify horses that may improve when switched to the turf, or those who may be expected to win as first time starters. I was able to replicate this result in my own study of nearly 100,000 races conducted a decade later.
Horse Racing System #1 – In maiden races, bet the horse with the best last race speed figure that has had at least two career starts. With the BRIS pp’s you can use the Sire Production Factor in concert with the pedigree rating. Because speed figures have gained in popularity over the years, anyone following that system now would have trouble coming up with gas money for the ride home from the track.
In fact, pedigree does not generally offer wager value with one curious exception: well bred horses do surprisingly well in maiden claiming races. If the tote board suggests that the public is overlooking these mitigating circumstances, make your play.
None of these systems will make you rich, or even guarantee that you will make a profit. The horse with the best combination of the two is the play.
For as long as humans have bet on horse racing there have been system sellers trying to con the gullible into parting with their hard earned money with the lure of easy profits to be made on the sport of kings. It must follow, therefore, that if we bet the best horse that has started at least twice, we stand an excellent chance of beating the takeout, particularly in races that have several first and second time starters.
This causes the favorite to be under bet in the place pool, leading to a profit opportunity for us to take advantage of by betting the favorite to place. My own studies have shown a similar advantage for the inside post in routes.
Horse Racing System #5 – Bet Horses breaking from the inside post in route races. This is somewhat counter-intuitive since you’d expect that horses with good pedigrees that end up in the maiden claiming ranks probably can’t run at all. None of them work.
Look for comment lines like “bled”, “lost rider”, “clipped heels”, “stumbled”, “steadied”, “between horses”, “rank”, and “jumped shadows” that suggest that a horse’s last race was not indicative of its true ability. It should go without saying that you should actually like the favorite’s chances after evaluating the race with your own handicapping.
In that spirit. This is another mistake that bettors make: in a race with a clear standout, many people give up on the win pool and bet their choice to place, thinking that they’ll get paid even if the favorite wins.
Instead of blindly betting all horses breaking from the inside, you might use this to supplement your handicapping, paying particular attention to the inside horse, and betting it when you like the horse on other handicapping grounds. Thanks for reading, and see you in the winner’s circle.
Second, the very nature of the parimutuel system itself means that any profits to be made from following a particular set of rules will quickly be arbitraged away as the followers of that system drive down the odds of horses chosen by the system.
The horse with the best last race speed figure (whether Beyer, BRIS, or Equibase) may not be the best horse in the race, but he’s probably not far off, so we can use that as a proxy for selection purposes.
Looking for a dead simple horse racing system that will allow you to quit your job and make a living betting the horses in just 10 minutes a day? Good luck with that!
However, just because systems won’t make you rich doesn’t mean there’s no place for them at all in a horseplayer’s arsenal. I’ve identified some of the most useful handicapping factors that have a proven history of doing much better than the track takeout and put them together with some simple rules that should make your trips to the racetrack more fun and profitable. Few bother to even look at the comment line for the race, let alone take the trouble to seek out and watch the replay of the race. Just don’t expect to quit your day job.
In the first place, the parimutuel takeout in horse racing is large (over 15%) and the mutuel pools are relatively efficient, so that even systems with a strong basis in reality can’t overcome the size of the takeout.
How do we identify the best pedigree, then? If you’re using the DRF past performances, use the stud fee as a proxy for quality, and the Tomlinson figure to judge suitability for the distance and surface. Most people who love horse racing would be thrilled just to win a little more and lose a little less on their trips to the track.
Nunamaker reported that the inside post in dirt route races won at a 20% greater than expected rate, and lost only 10 cents on the dollar, much better than the track take. The inside post combined with early speed is a particularly potent combination, since the horse will not have to exert himself as much to gain his preferred position at the front of the pack.
For instance, many speed figure handicappers reported making horse racing profits in the 60’s and 70’s simply by betting horses with the best last race speed figure. The inside post in turf routes actually showed a small profit, but this was based on a small sample size and cannot be relied upon
