Gambling on sports hasn’t been more high-stakes or reachable. But with the invasion of Europe-based businesses in the game, the experts are feeling squeezed and frequently getting banned from plying their trade. Is this the ending of this sports bettor?
I am not a bookmaker,” Gadoon Kyrollos informs me as we walk through the Hard Rock Casino in Atlantic City, enjoying penny slot machines. “I am a sports bettor.” Kyrollos is in fact one of the highest-rolling sports bettors in the USA.
