When they say "premium lounge" is that referring to a Robert Kraft type happy ending or something? 🤔

I believe it means they are sending over some of the talent from the Fort Erie Ballet Company.

Scandal shmandal. It's not about integrity of the game for them, just cold hard cash. 

 

Agree'd & that want as much of your cash as your willing to give them even if it does mean losing everything you own ! I just love the way they add the responsibility statement into their adds too !!

My buddy said they were matching up to 3k.  This true?  If so, hammer the bills ML

They are matching up to $3,000 but there are a couple of problems with the match.  It has to be used within 30 days. Now I'm a little fuzzy on the details, but you might have to wager around 6K to use it within 30 days.  

 

Here's my experience:  When I signed up I got $300, then I had to deposit money to get the match.  I chose $1,000 as my deposit.  When I reviewed my account the money was divided into 2 groups Cash Balance and Bonus Balance.  I had $1,000 in cash balance & $1,300 in bonus balance.  Then I bet $50 and my cash balance went down to $950.  I may or may not have been correct, but I was under the impression that I had to wager the entire bonus, so I bet $1,300 on the Giants game. When I looked at my account it read Cash Balance $0, Bonus Balance $950.  I then bet the $950 in 2 different wagers on the Bills game (I split it & broke even).  After I won 2 of the 3 bets all my money was in cash balance.  I had bet the night game after I won the Giants game, the money went in my account within 10 minutes after the game. 

 

Since I bet it all, all my winnings went into cash balance.  My concern with putting $3,000 in is there will be $3,300 in the bonus balance column. If you win & continue to have money in the cash balance and they withdraw all bet money from the cash balance 1st, you may never reach the bonus balance money within 30 days.  In my case I had to use up the cash balance before it went to the bonus balance. Now I saw somewhere there might be a button on their site to use the bonus balance to bet, but I didn't find it.   If my experience is indicative, the person who gets a $3,000 bonus better be a high roller.  Now the answer may be to make a withdrawal that will come out of the cash balance.  I ended up withdrawing $2,500 and it was in my bank account Thursday morning.  I imagine you can withdraw the cash and get to the bonus balance that way. 

 

For anyone interested in opening an account I'd recommend Caesars because you get the best intro deal.  There are no others that grow the account like you can with Caesars before your 1st bet.  Fan Duel has a risk free bet up to $1,000 but you have to bet your own $1,000 and if you lose they give you a bet credit of what you bet, so unlike Caesars, you only get the bonus if your bet loses.  For example, I put in $1,000 & I had $2,300 to bet.  With FD, you only have $1,000, plus whatever their signing bonus is, if there is one, to bet.

Thanks for the detailed Info.  I wish I could take advantage of it.

The Bills did not indicate that they were adding a Canadian Ballet lounge. 

 

On a more serious note, it’s hard to believe the NFL has so comfortably cozied up with betting.  As others have indicated it is probably only a matter of time before some noteworthy scandal arises.

I feel the narrative regarding a potential scandal is largely exaggerated. The people who are in a position to create a scandal have always had countless ways to do so. 
 

All this does is give John Doe who lives on Walnut Street a way to lose money on Sundays.

Jumping in the sack with gambling  must have been the NFL's pivot for "growth" as international expansion doesn't look like it would fully take.

 

I liked it better when gambling and the NFL made it look like they operated independent of one another.

 

 

Lol. So you preferred being lied to? At least now its out in the open. Finally. Im 100% okay with it. Betting has been a part of sports from the beginning

If you put $20 in you can bet $340 ($300 bonus + $20 match + $20 deposit).  That's not a bad deal for $20.  

I’m in Vegas and have most of the betting apps

Wonder when the first football betting scandal occurs, and who will be the first scoundrel; a player, coach, referee. Any guesses?

 

Billions of dollars have been gambled illegally for many decades.

The risk here is not with the NFL!  It's with some related entity who will directly benefit from impropriety.


The NFL already has its money, as you point out.

 

People who gain: individual officials/betting agencies/corrupt wealthy gamblers making huge bets

They've had betting on games at Met Life next door at the Meadowlands racetrack on gamedays since they legalized sports betting in NJ.  The only difference was that you had to put your bet in before the game.  If you were a NJ resident & signed up for their online betting you can use your phone in the stadium the whole game.  

 

The only difference with the sportsbook in the stadium is you can bet without an account.

And the NFL is going to make bank off of it or they wouldn't allow it, and they certainly wouldn't be building to accommodate or make it "the official sports book" of the Bills.

 

Money talks and the NFL hears it loud and clear.

Yup.  And pot was illegal once as well.  Might as well make prostitution legal as well.  You're never going to stop it and at least then can regulate it.

In short, yes.  Having the veil of decency walled off things like this from happening.  Not a great thing for young kids when it's all shamelessly out there.

The intro offer is only in NY, so you can't participate.  They're also very strict on the "you have to be physically in NY" stuff.  They have to be able to establish where you are betting from.  Their locator works on my cell phone but it doesn't work on my desktop, laptop, or Kindle (incompatable with device), even after I downloaded their locator software on my desktop & laptop.  So I have to make all my bets on my cell phone.

Agreed.  I don't like this at all and I say that as someone who enjoys putting money down on the games while in Vegas.  There's a saying, don't eat where you poop... gambling is ok in small doses but having it inside the stadium itself feels like it's a step too far.
