"I think people should start to understand that playing at different books is like adding stocks to your portfolios. You have your blue chips which just deliver to expectations year in and year out, you have your bonds which give you that small return and the piece of mind and then you have your shots in the dark where you can striker it big or can disintegrate over night. Sure Aces and BreX looked awesome to a lot of investors but damn it, with Aces you didn`t even get the certificates to wallpaper your basement.
Buyer beware is the best approach. I don`t think more than 20% of the books out there would be able to pay in full given a week to settle all outstanding accounts. Legal status in the US will impact books differently based on their sports offerings and their customer base but all would feel it to a degree."
