LAS VEGASAug. 31, 2018 – WagerTalk, a leading sports betting information and handicapping service, has appointed Kelly Stewart as its Director of Media Relations.

Stewart emerged as a prominent voice in the Las Vegas sports betting scene in the early 2010s while working for Don Best Sports. She has turned that Internet following into one of the industry’s largest proxy services for out-of-town gamblers.

“We at WagerTalk are so thrilled and excited to bring Kelly into our family. She is at the top of her game doing sports gambling videos and radio, and we feel extremely lucky that she chose us to work with,” said Lawrence Prezman, Co-Founder of WagerTalk.

In addition to her proxy service and new role with WagerTalk, Stewart is a writer and video personality for the Las Vegas Review-Journal. She has been featured on ESPN, Fox Sports, E! News, and several radio stations across the country.

“I am very excited to join the WagerTalk family! To finally find a permanent home in the betting community has been amazing. I am able to broaden my talents and do what I love within the parameters of a great company. I look forward to a long and prosperous relationship with WagerTalk as they expand their business in the betting world,” Stewart said.

Founded in July 2015, WagerTalk’s team of writers, handicappers, and personalities create content from across the globe. The brand’s YouTube channel has generated 2.5 million views for its sports betting videos. WagerTalk produces a daily radio show from ESPN Las Vegas, and publishes a weekly podcast.

Stewart is hopeful that she can help bettors share in some of the success that she has enjoyed in front of the wagering window. She famously cashed a three-team, 85-to-1 college football parlay in 2012, and won the Westgate Las Vegas SuperContest’s “Mini Contest” in 2014.

“Kelly will be bringing our viewers insightful, behind-the-scenes interviews with some of the biggest sports book operators in Las Vegas,” said Marco D’Angelo Co-Founder of WagerTalk.

“Kelly will get our viewers key information, helping them become a more successful bettor. Kelly will also be hosting our weekly handicapping and game preview videos. Following Kelly will be like a weekly guided tour of everything happening gambling-wise in Las Vegas.”

Mobile Betting Bill Fails to Progress Through New York AssemblyReading Time: 1 minute

 

Senator Joseph Addabbo’s mobile betting bill has failed to progress through the New York Assembly. The legislative session saw S17 fail to progress beyond the Assembly Standing Committee on Codes.

Addabbo tweeted that he saw no clear reason why the state could not implement mobile sports betting in 2019. Failure to do so would see the state miss out on around $75m in revenue, funding for education, and both job creation and retention.

“NY will be stuck like a disabled car on the shoulder, while we allow an illegal sports betting business in our state thrive and idly watch other neighboring states pass us up with enormous revenue gains from mobile sports betting,” Addabbo said.

Eldorado Resorts Inc., the US based casino operator, has agreed to merge with Caesars Entertainment Corp through a $17.3 billion cash and stock deal.

The deal, which is expected to be announced soon, values Caesars at close to $13 a share. The combined company’s ownership would be split roughly between Eldorado and Caesars shareholders.

An Eldorado spokesman said the company did not comment on rumours or speculation. Caesars did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

The combination of the two companies would create a serious competitor to larger casino industry players, such as Las Vegas Sands Corp, Wynn Resorts Ltd and MGM Resorts International.
