Practical implications for blockchain: safer gambling and AML discussed on iGaming Business webinar – CoinGeek

On March 10, iGaming Business hosted a webinar on practical implementations for blockchain technology, safer gambling, and anti-money laundering (AML).

Many critics dismiss blockchain and the associated coins as nothing but a speculative asset attached to a distributed spreadsheet. However, as this insightful webinar shows, the technology is so much more than that, and it has the potential to revolutionize entire industries. Watch it or read a full summary below.

NCAA Tournament (0.5 Unit) Arkansas First Half +5 vs. Gonzaga (-110): 6:10 PM on CBS

Gonzaga has not been sharp out of the gates in this tournament, leading Georgia State by 2 and trailing Memphis by 10 at their respective halftimes. The third time could be a charm, but I’m seeing a team so far that’s much better at making halftime adjustments than starting strong. Plus, Arkansas has to come out firing here and hope to get an early lead before their disadvantages inevitably …….

NBA (0.75 Unit) Brooklyn Nets -2 @ Memphis Grizzlies (-110): 6:30 PM CT on ESPN

This could be a little square, but the narrative here tells me it’s Nets or nothing in this spot. Brooklyn playing on the road with Kyrie Irving, on national TV, against a Grizzlies team missing Ja Morant seems like the perfect situation for the Nets to flex their muscles. Memphis has not been bad without Morant this season, but this Brooklyn team is just different on the road.

From the tables to the bully pulpit – A former addict’s mission to combat problem gambling – ESPN

On a late afternoon in June 2018, Craig Carton is at a high-limit blackjack table in a casino just outside of Philadelphia.

The high-profile New York sports-talk host is fighting an internal battle between his ego and his soul. He needs to double down but doesn’t have the cash in front of him.

Nine months earlier, Carton had been arrested by federal agents at his home and charged with fraud for his role in a concert ticket resale scheme, some of the proceeds from which he used to …….

NCAA CBI (0.75 Unit) UNC-Wilmington/Northern Colorado Over 153 (-110): 6:00 PM CT on ESPN2

Often times these neutral-site tournaments see lower-scoring games as teams aren’t used to the sightlines for shooting. But that certainly hasn’t been a problem for either of these squads, with both seeing their offensive efficiency marks exceed season averages in this event. They’ve also played close and fast-paced games the last two days, and with this being the third game in as ma…….

Celebrate Oscars Week With Five Gambling Movies That We Love – America’s Best Racing

The 93rd Academy Awards are right around the corner and you may think that the broadcast is simply part of the Hollywood press machine (which, it kind of is), but it can offer audiences like us some unexpected entertainment.

Think Oscar predictions fall outside of the gambling purview? Think again. Sure, it may take some digging to find a sportsbook willing to offer lines or a friend who’s devised a pool on the major categories — Best Picture, Best Actor and Actress, Best Director …….

NCAA Tournament (0.5 Unit) Miami +7.5 vs. Auburn (-110): 6:45 PM CT on TRUTV

I think this is a sneakily bad matchup for Auburn given the styles and talent of these teams. The Tigers and their erratic guards are going to struggle against the excellent and deep talent of Miami’s backcourt. Those Hurricanes guards can put a lot of pressure on the ball, force turnovers, and score from anywhere on the court. And when Miami plays their 5-out offense, they’ll be able to negate Aubu…….
