Thinking about heading down to Delaware for some fall sports betting? Think again. On Monday, August 24, 2009, a Federal Appeals court granted an emergency injunction against Delaware’s plans to begin taking bets on single game events, beginning with this NFL betting season. The actual case itself was scheduled for December 2009, which would have allowed sports betting to move forward, but lawyers from the major sports leagues plus the NCAA were successful in convincing the 3 judge panel that general sports betting in Delaware would violate a 1992 Federal ban on sports gambling.

Like many other states, Delaware is in dire need of funds for its state government, which is believed to have the greatest shortfall per capita compared to every other state in the union. Delaware’s governor, Jack Markell, sought to legalize sports betting based on legislation enacted in the 1976, which allowed the state to run a “sports lottery” style parlay betting operation. Ultimately, this plan fizzled out, but the laws permitting the lottery remained on the books. The natural progression from this status was to move towards Las Vegas style, single game betting and bookmaking. Markell and many other state lawmakers felt legalizing sports betting would create a steady stream of revenue for the state.

In the wake of the Federal Appeal’s Court decision, the Governor and many other officials are stunned. Governor Markell stated, “[the] Delaware Sports Lottery was invented as an economic development initiative. We felt it was consistent with federal law.” Lawyer Kenneth K. Nachbar, who represented the various sports leagues disagreed in court, stating: “The closer you get to single-game betting, the more you affect the integrity of what happens on the field”. Unfortunately for Delaware, the Justices agreed with Nachbar’s sentiment.

The judges were also concerned that Delaware’s plans to start single game sports betting prior to the December 2009 court case regarding its Federal level legality could essentially be an illegal activity. Had sports betting commenced as planned, and then was later deemed illegal by the court in December, people who lost wagers could request the state to return their money. According to Chief Justice Theodore McKee, “[If] Delaware knows it was taking my money in an illegal scheme, I want my money back.”

The other end of the argument, however, dealt with the impact on sports and fair play. Lawyer Nachbar believed that fans could question the integrity of a sports contest if they believed money was riding on the result. A sloppy pass from a quarterback, or a missed field goal could all be construed as deliberate efforts to influence the game result. Opposing Counsel Andre Bouchard, who represented the state of Delaware, suggested this argument was incorrect, because the leagues have been unable to prove whether or not sports were negatively affected by existing bookmaking operations in Las Vegas. Further, Bouchard suggested Delaware’s 1976 legal sports lottery provided an adequate basis for legislating general bookmaking activity in the state.

So, as it stands, Delaware still has the go ahead for lottery style parlay betting. Any other sports wagering is on hold until the court hears the entire case in December 2009. Local gaming operations were naturally upset with this result, since many had already invested millions of dollars renovating their facilities in anticipation of larger crowds coming to place bets on sports. Now, those renovations are either at a stand still, or will be quietly completed with the faint hope that the lottery style parlay betting will bring in customers.

Others feel the Judge’s missed the point with respect to legality of bookmaking on a state level. Now that Delaware has put the breaks on full sports betting activities, it could be argued more people will look to organized crime and other illegal enterprise to take their wagers. This naturally furthers the plight of criminal activity, which could have been stemmed had the justices sided with Delaware.

Aside from “placing bets with mob” (a hyperbole used by many naysayers to state sports betting), there is still one very obvious, perhaps safer alternative: online sports betting. People hoping to place bets in Delaware will now turn to offshore NFL betting operations for their business. While the legality of such activity is questionable, one thing about offshore betting is for sure: any monies that could potentially benefit a state government leave the country altogether, and into the economies of foreign countries instead of the USA. So even if the ruling on the emergency injunction requested by the sports leagues maybe legally sound, it definitely is not economically productive.

Delaware aside, major offshore sportsbooks are anticipating a strong season, despite the stagnant USA economy. NFL betting is extremely popular, not to mention betting on College football, NBA basketball, College basketball, and most all other major sports. As a result, offshore betting still remains strong whether or not states like Delaware legalize sports betting at home.

Barney Frank, D Massachusetts, chair of the house banking committee has already introduced legislation that would legalize and tax internet gambling in the USA. Frank’s motivation is similar to Delaware’s: the Federal government could greatly benefit from additional revenues, and regulating internet gaming could be a potential windfall. At this time, however, this legislation is at a standstill while the congress is away.

Whether you’re from the USA, Canada, Europe, or any other country, you can place bets on the NFL now at our participating sportsbooks. Simply scroll to the top of this page, or navigate our website menu on the left hand side of the page for more information.

Good luck!

The primary function of a sportsbook is to take your deposits, offer you NFL betting action, and then payout if you win. Interestingly enough, as the sports betting industry has become more competitive, membership style rewards programs commonly found in the airline, retail, and hospitality industry have been ported into sportsbooks. As a result, players that take advantage of these sportsbook rewards programs can often win prizes, get special privileges at sportsboks, or even earn cash back depending on how frequently they wager.

In brief, sportsbook rewards programs are really no different than your typical airline or retail program: first you signup, second you qualify for a certain rewards level, and third you accumulate points as you use various sportsbook services and place bets. The more points you earn (and save) the better your reward for your loyalty will be.

Best Sportsbook Rewards Programs

BookMaker.com – As usual, Bookmaker.com is ahead of the crowd with it’s straightforward, no holds barred rewards programs. Featuring an array of different prizes, including free payouts, merchandise, gift cards, and even cash back, BookMaker.com strives to not only provide its players with best sportsbook experience, but also reward them for their loyalty and patronage. More information can be found about BookMaker.com’s Rewards Program – Click Here, and then select the “Rewards” link on the page that is displayed in your browser.

Diamond Sportsbook International
– Diamond Sportsbook’s Player Loyalty program is formatted much like Bookmaker.com’s program. Players must first join the sportsbook itself, and afterward immediately attain Gold Rewards status. Remember that you must also sign up for the Loyalty Program, or else you won’t collect points. Diamond Sportsbook offers a great selection of prizes, ranging from Diamond Sportsbook merchandise, to special sportsbook privileges, and even frequent flyer miles. Players can also opt to wager their points on rolling sweepstakes that are held for very attractive prizes. Remember, however, that putting your points in a sweepstakes doesn’t mean you’ll automatically win, it just means your name is in the drawing.

Out of all our feature sportsbooks, BookMaker.com and Diamond Sportsbook probably offer the best rewards programs. Their system is reliable, trustworthy, and consistent, plus, your points can actually earn you tangible prizes, opposed to some sites that only allow you to participate in player loyalty lotteries.

Pros and Cons of Sportbook Loyalty Programs

As the NFL betting season rapidly approaches, we’d like to offer a list of pros and cons about sportsbook loyalty programs, which might be helpful as you choose a sportsbook for this coming NFL season.

Sportsbook Loyalty Program Pros

  • Win or Lose, You Get Points – Both Bookmaker.com and Diamond Sportsbook give players registered in the rewards programs points per dollar unit wagered. In most cases it is 1 point per 1 dollar, but on bets that are usually more difficult for the player to win, such as parlays, members can enjoy a 2:1 point to dollar ratio. Further, the outcome of the wager doesn’t matter: win, lose or draw, you get points tallied to your account after each wager.
  • Cash Back Rewards – No one can argue with getting a cash rebate placed in their account after earning a substantial amount of reward points. Cash rewards can be withdrawn immediately and are not subject to any bonus rollover conditions. Most importantly, cash rewards allow you to spend your rewards earnings on things you actually want, versus getting gifts that you may or may not ever use.
  • High Rollers with Reap Huge Benefits – If you’re a high roller and like to bet on sports frequently, you also avail yourself to earning substantial amounts of reward points at your sportsbook. In the case of Bookmaker.com, for example, the more money you wager, the more points you earn. Therefore, if you like to bet big, you can also earn lots of rewards points. As with any gaming operation, top customers get top treatment.
  • Registration is Free – Believe it or not, joining these rewards programs doesn’t cost a dime when it comes to actually registering your name in the system. Yes, in reality it costs money because you earn points through wagering, but the program membership itself is FREE. This means you don’t have to come out of pocket to be rewarded for your loyalty. Also, you can sign up at any time – although you can not earn points retroactively for wagers you made in the past – which is very convenient because you don’t have to follow overly complicated rules or restrictions in order to access the program.

Sportsbook Loyalty Program Cons

  • Minimal Benefits for Recreational Players – As mentioned above in the “pros” section, high rollers will tend to reap the most rewards of any player loyalty program. Conversely, players who only bet a few dollars now and then will not see much in terms of prizes or rewards, simply because the system is setup to reward customers based on dollar units wagered. As a result, if you only bet $500 over the course of an NFL betting season, you can’t expect to earn much in terms of player rewards.
  • Some Rewards Are Clearly Out of Reach – As a follow up to the above “con”, it should be noted that sportsbooks don’t like to give anything away for free, even if it is for their best customers. Accordingly, earning a substantial amount of cash back, for example, is out of reach for even the most dedicated of gamblers, since the top prize of $715 is awarded to players with 90,000 or more points. To translate, that means you have to have $90,000 in regular wagering action, or $45,000 in parlay action to get points. For most people, those amounts of money are out of the question, and they will probably never wager more the $10,000 over the course of two or three NFL betting seasons.
  • Reward Points Lotteries Not Worth It – One common of any customer loyalty program is earning entries towards some sort of drawing for a big prize. The catch is that you’re actually wagering your loyalty points, which means you could stand to lose them all and get nothing. Instead, we recommend taking the more humble prize offers that do not require an entry into a lottery. Yes, you may only get a T-shirt or free bet, but getting something is better than seeing all your reward points go up in smoke in a lottery. Remember, thousands of players with varying amounts of points enter these lotteries, so the chance of winning is remote.
  • Rules and Restrictions for using points – Much like a first deposit bonus or reload bonus, some rewards programs have rules and restrictions for using your reward points. For example, a customer may only be allowed to use no more than 1000 points towards lottery entries, even if they have a ton of reward points available for redemption. As we stated above, lotteries are not worth the time. Instead, redeem your points for small gifts and consider them party favors for your patronage at the online sportsbook.

Regular season NFL betting is literally days away, so join one of our featured sportsbooks while you have the chance. Next, once you have an account, go sign up for the player rewards program right away, so you can be sure to begin accumulating points right out of the gate. If you have any questions, call customer service before you wager, just so you can be clear about what types of bets actually earn rewards points.

Reward points are fun to have as the holiday season approaches, and the small gifts listed in the merchandise section make great stocking stuffers for NFL betting fans. Also, if you qualify, there’s nothing better than getting cash back for being a great customer.

Have fun this NFL betting season!
