WagerTalk, the largest sports betting content provider in the world, has added Gold Sheet owner Rick Allec to its ownership team.

With over three decades of experience in the sports betting industry, Allec has not only worked on both sides of the counter, he has provided services and information to both.

“I have deeply respected Rick as an operator and executor for 15 years,” said WagerTalk President Lawrence Prezman. “There is no more talented, trustworthy, connected and genuinely nice guy than Rick.”

After working with some of the world’s largest bookmakers in the 1980s, Allec partnered with a betting group and was a daily regular at the Stardust opening line lottery, battling with the largest betting groups in the United States for a chance to bet the earliest lines.

As sports betting became mainstream, Allec moved into software development and created programs to help sports books manage their accounting, player tracking, and risk assessment.

In 1999, Allec joined the Don Best team and managed the release of their flagship odds products. Using his broad experience in the industry, Allec guided Don Best through massive growth, leading to one of the largest acquisitions in the space at that time.

In 2007, Allec founded SportsOptions and quickly grew the company into a force in the line service industry. With a reputation for the fastest updates, SportsOptions became a must-have tool for sports books and sports bettors around the world.

In 2017, SportsOptions merged with Don Best, and the SportsOptions software became the undisputed industry standard. SportsOptions was later acquired by Scientific Games, a multi-billion dollar global gaming company.

“Rick built two of the most respected brands in the sports gambling space: Don Best and SportsOptions,” Prezman said. “He will now be putting his experience, connections and brain power towards building the Gold Sheet. WagerTalk has the best team assembled in this industry, and Rick has made us even better.”

Founded in 1957, The Gold Sheet is the country’s longest-running sports betting newsletter. Each week, the Gold Sheet team delivers analysis on all NFL and college football games, along with key NBA and college basketball matchups. WagerTalk recently announced its intent to acquire The Gold Sheet.

“I have watched WagerTalk grow from a small, unknown website to one of the largest sites in the industry at an amazing pace,” Allec said. “Their growth is a testament to the skill and experience of the entire team, and the incredible customer service delivered to their clients.”

Founded in July 2015, WagerTalk’s team of writers, handicappers, and personalities create sports betting content from across the globe. The brand’s YouTube channel has generated 5.9 million views for its weekly sports betting videos. WagerTalk produces a daily radio show from ESPN Las Vegas, and publishes a series of almost-daily podcasts.

“Having worked with Johnny, Lawerence, and Marco for over a decade, I am excited to have the opportunity to bring the Gold Sheet into the WagerTalk group and expand on the synergies between our companies,” Allec said.

1-12 Maine Legislature Passes Sports Betting BillReading Time: 1 minute

 

Maine legislature has passed the sports betting bill. The Legislative Document 553 was given final approval by each chamber of the legislature and will now pass to Governor Janet Mills to be signed into law.

LD553 opens up the market to all of the state’s bricks and mortar gaming venues, such as commercial racetracks, off-track betting facilities, and commercial and tribal casinos. It will also allow mobile operators to apply for licences without the need for a land-based partner in the state.

Successful applicants will have to pay $20,000 as licence fee, 10% tax on land-based wagering revenue and 16% rate for mobile wagering. The bulk of revenue raised through these taxes will be allocated to the Maine General Fund.

Operators will be permitted to offer odds on all professional, collegiate and amateur sports events. Betting on events involving Maine-based colleges and universities will be prohibited. Only citizens aged 21 and above will be allowed to bet.

Cash-O-Matic NetEnt invites players to give its marvellous money machine a spin with Cash-O-MaticReading Time: 1 minute

 

Cash-O-Matic is an adventure packed with Free Spins and Multipliers.

 

NetEnt’s Cash-O-Matic is a 1024-bet way, 5-reel, 4-row video slot designed with the look of an old-style cash machine and loaded with game mechanics.

The new, retro-looking title has flipped NetEnt’s proprietary AvalancheTM feature on its head. Now operating in reverse, AvalancheTM sees all winning symbols remain on the reels, while the rest disappear.

Cash-O-Matic is full of Free Spins and Multipliers. The number of Free Spins awarded equals the amount of Scatter symbols collected, with a minimum of 10 Free Spins there to be won. With Scatter lengths of up to 18, the number of Free Spins can get really high.”.

In the main game, the Level Multiplier is awarded if at least one row is filled with winning symbols. The more rows, the higher the Multiplier value. In Free Spins, the Multiplier depends on the number of Scatter symbols that activated Free Spins and can go as high as x50.

“We’re pleased to present Cash-O-Matic, a true homage to the first slot machine, the Liberty Bell. High volatility reverse AvalancheTM action, Free Games, Scatter Stacks and Multipliers in a very simple and elegant art package. A game for the VIP players out there.” said Bryan Upton, NetEnt Director of Games.
