Heh. So, the George Papadopoulos of the gambling world not only just ended his career, but may have screwed up the careers of some fairly high-profile athletes and described just how easy it is to tamper with collegiate sporting events as well?

Nice.

TFAAdditionally, Gorodetsky said, he thinks he's been hit by the casino ban after speculating that obscure games such as the NBA summer league or small-time college basketball are open to point shaving.
"You just pay college kids, inner-city college kids who don't have any money," he told USA TODAY Sports. "Give them 10 grand. That's like a million dollars to them. You know what I'm saying? Have a bad game, here's 10 grand. I don't see how they wouldn't do it.


I bet that's why those basketball players were given the first class blankets on a plane the other day!  First you get the blankets, then you get the money, then you get the women.

What a maroon.  Why on earth would someone in that position give an interview?  You had a good thing going, keep it to yourself.

FTFA: "I'm banned for life basically from Vegas,'' Gorodetsky said. "My life is over basically, but nothing I can do.''

Get a better life?

No shiat from the sounds of it he made many, many millions.
He should head to Wall Street or Silicon Valley and start a Venture Capital Firm or Hedge Fund

All he has to do is get someone to place his bets, pretty sure he isn't worried about it

I'm pretty sure that anybody with a fair chance of winning is going to be banned in Vegas.

Someone will always be glad to try and take his money. It will likely be a low rent place for a while is all.

Nobody's that lucky, even in sports betting, even if you know sports.  There's always an off night for one athlete or one team.  Then when you lose, you get stupid trying to make it up.

This kid is full of shiat about sports betting and makes his money playing poker or drug dealing, or he gets fed information and, in that case, in the old days casinos would've given him a job.

Nope, He admitted to violating the NV gaming laws. You can't loan money to gamblers without an unrestricted casino license. Everybody already knew how easy it was to fix a college or summer league game.

Hint: it's easier to buy the refs than payoff the players.
