Has anybody seen their adds, that they pay one hundred- to_ one on both sides of a sports bet. Payoff if either one in a fight lands a punch. WTH ?
They are running adds promoting this several times an hour on daytime broadcast TV.

Perhaps you are mixing up spread betting with odds.

There are millions, literally, of desperate people trapped in their homes, watching daytime TV.

I've been involved with gamboling on both sides of the line for sixty years, and I don't understand what the three online casinos advertising on daytime TV or offering. I'm pretty sure it involves shifting stimulus money from the people who desperately need it into the pockets of very large corporations that don't provide any help to anyone.
Give 'em the old razzle dazzle
Razzle Dazzle 'em
Give 'em an act with lots of flash in it
And the reaction will be passionate
Give 'em the old hocus pocus
Bead and feather 'em
How can they see with sequins in their eyes?
What if your hinges all are rusting?
What if, in fact, you're just disgusting?
Razzle dazzle 'em
And they;ll never catch wise!
Give 'em the old Razzle Dazzle
Razzle dazzle 'em
Give 'em a show that's so splendiferous
Row after row will crow vociferous
Give 'em the old flim flam flummox
Fool and fracture 'em
How can they hear the truth above the roar?
Throw 'em a fake and a finagle
They'll never know you're just a bagel,
Razzle dazzle 'em
And they'll beg you for more!
Give 'em the old double whammy
Daze and dizzy 'em
Back since the days of old Methuselah
Everyone loves the big bambooz-a-ler
Give 'em the old three ring circus
Stun and stagger 'em
When you're in trouble, go into your dance
Though you are stiffer than a girder
They'll let you get away with murder
Razzle dazzle 'em
And you've got a romance
COMPANY(The same time as BILLY's)
Give 'em the old
Razzle Dazzle
BILLY
Give 'em the old Razzle Dazzle
Razzle dazzle 'em
Show 'em the first rate sorceror you are
Long as you keep 'em way off balance
How can they spot you've got no talents
Razzle Dazzle 'em
BILLY AND COMPANY
Razzle Dazzle 'em
Razzle Dazzle 'em
And they'll make you a star!

No contest is an official fight result used in both sanctioned boxing and mixed martial arts events. A no contest occurs when the fight must be ended for a reason deemed out of the control of both fighters.

So has the fight been called off for some reason and are you a lamb?

Its basically a sign up bonus match play disguised as a bet.... basically you deposit100 bucks and they give you the option to bet 1 dollar and you get paid 100 to one of someone lands a punch....of course someones gonna land a punch and they give you 100 bucks...other sites offer up to 200 bucks match play in which you deposit 200 and you get 200 free..

It's weird that someone who says they've been in the industry for sixty years thinks of tying "stimulus money" to casinos doing what they've always done in all situations which is to get money from everyone they can. Also weird that they don't understand the signup bonus deal where I'm sure it's just the bog-standard "playthrough requirements * house edge > bonus". Guess being in the industry doesn't mean you have to understand it.

I started out as a rolldown agent on Royal Show American Shows in 1965. My job was to work the walk- up crowd, while the flatty worked a hot mark. Very dishonest, probably illegal. I got an education in the dark side of gambling working Bill White's pin store, string game and swinger, till I just got sick of it.
Thank you Tommy, that odds checker column clears up the bet. I don't think to many people would would play if the understood it, certainly not from the TV ads. Splice is right, the big, big boys are piling on, with huge money, on to take advantage of a tragic situation. Internet betting is new big thing. Pretty much the whole deal stinks.

Most people don't realize that their friendly keyboard is actually a slot machine with about a 98.5% payback. This can be deadly for unsophisticated in marks, locked in and boarded out of their minds.

I have used the internet to place sports bets with bookies here in England but I have never seen anything like the bet in question. I do not understand this bet: I mean I do not get what is in it for the bookies.

I'm sure the unsophisticated non gamblers stuck indoors don't either.

How about you explain it to us unsophisticated non-gamboling folk.

I believe that the winnings on this deal cannot be cashed out. So they are hoping that you continue betting with the house money and eventually after losing start using your own. Opinion not based on actual use of the web sites but common sense.

I believe you're half right.
The online gamblers are perched along side the collection agents, waiting for the banks to release the bounty.
Once I ask a CBNY senior vice president how to tell who the biggest crook was. He said "who keeps the money on the weekend".

If you cannot win you cannot lose is an old gambolling rule which would often arise in stud poker games and one, I believe, you ought to know better.

Unlike the previous stimulus bill, congress did not block private debt collectors from seizing deposits and freezing bank accounts.
