We did something very different with the Tuesday Takeover show this week. Host Adam Burke was joined by Las Vegas-based freelance writer Marc Meltzer to talk the direction of the town, the direction of sports betting, and the arrival of the Vegas Golden Knights and the Las Vegas Raiders. This was definitely a departure from what we normally do on the show, but this is a bit of a lull in the sports betting calendar, so it was nice to do something out of the ordinary. The guys discussed the declining edges in Vegas for those playing lower stakes blackjack or those that like to play craps and video poker. They also talked about those dreaded resort fees and parking costs. Marc covered some of his favorite spots to eat, drink, and hang out, both on the Strip and off of it. Along with that, the guys talked about the impending legalization of sports betting and what, if any, impact it may have on Nevada and its corner of the betting market. Will the arrival of the new pro teams go over well in Vegas? Will it mean anything for the betting industry? Like we said, this is different than what we usually do, but still a fun listen for those that haven't been in a while or those that are looking to go soon.
