Gì của Mỹ cũng thơm

các đại học của Mỹ hăng hái ký hợp đồng với Caesars Sportsbook để... đưa cá độ vào trường  học :D

...The offer from Caesars Sportsbook turned out to be even bigger than that, according to emails obtained by The New York Times. In the end, the company proposed a deal worth $8.4 million over five years. It was, a member of the negotiating team said in another email, “the largest sportsbook deal in college athletics.”


Other schools, too, have struck deals to bring betting to campus. After Louisiana State University signed a similar deal in 2021 with Caesars, the university sent an email encouraging recipients — including some students who were under 21 and couldn’t legally gamble (đánh bạc hợp pháp) — to “place your first bet (and earn your first bonus).”

And when the University of Colorado Boulder in 2020 accepted $1.6 million to promote sports gambling on campus, a betting company sweetened the deal by offering the school an extra $30 every time someone downloaded the company’s app and used a promotional code (mã khuyến mại) to place a bet.

All three deals were part of a far-reaching but secretive (bí mật) campaign (chiến dịch) by the nascent (non trẻ) online sports-gambling industry. Ever since the Supreme Court’s decision in 2018 to let states legalize (hợp pháp hóa) such betting, gambling companies have been racing to convert (chuyển đổi) traditional casino (sòng bạc truyền thống) customers, fantasy sports aficionados (người hâm mộ) and players of online games into a new generation of digital (kỹ thuật số) gamblers. Major universities, with their tens of thousands of alumni (cựu sinh viên) and a captive audience of easy-to-reach students, have emerged as an especially enticing target.

So far, at least eight universities have become partners with online sports-betting companies, or sportsbooks, many in the last year, with more expected.

In addition, at least a dozen athletic departments and booster clubs have signed agreements with brick-and-mortar casinos.
