Sports betting became legal one year ago, and some experts think New Jersey could someday overtake Las Vegas

Watched a Man go to a sportsbook at Atlantic City on the first Friday of the NCAA Tournament in March.

The sportsbook was dimly lit, but playful. Games were on most of the screens, and he was sexy for Wisconsin. Loved the Badgers, even though they were confronting an Oregon team that had won eight straight and played its way to the field by winning the Pac-12 Tournament.
But before jumping on Wisconsin, which started at 4:30 p.m., he set $3,500 on Cincinnati to beat Iowa in the first block of matches. Cincy had won the American Athletic Conference Tournament the prior weekend and if the Bearcats jumped out to an 18-5 lead, it looked like a fine beginning to the afternoon.
Subsequently Iowa shot 65 percent from the field in the second half and roared back to win . Right, no problem? Still had Wisconsin beginning in 90 minutes.
When our man went back to place another $3,500 on the Badgers, he was told his limit had been cut to $2,800, essentially telling him that if he wanted to reclaim the $3,500 he dropped on Cincinnati, he would need to win two games.
Casinos may impose limits at their discretion to limit their liability. It is well within the regulations, but a restriction new to many bettors in this area of the country.
