I think you have it backward. It's the CDI component in AP that has pushed ILL ADW bettors into this spot. It's all about establishing a nat'l ADW model that insures a certain level of profitablity for shareholders "going forward," as they say in corporate-speak. Has nothing to do with forcing play on ILL in ILL.

Not only CDI, but all the horsemen and tracks in other states who see ADW's as their opportunity ti totally bypass their former "partner tracks" in various states (the partners who allowed their competing product in to begin, and marketed it to the customers via simulcasts), and suck out all the State handle without having to share any of it with their "partners". Tracks and horsemen in the CDI and Magna families, especially. It's all about diverting Illinois handle and takeout out of Illinois and directly to these other tracks, to the detriment of the Illinois racing program, and Illinois taxpayers.

I don't think so, which post?  Sometimes I delete posts that quote things that need deleting, but I don't remember doing that.

The board also approved an amendment to its advance deposit wagering policy. The new rule states that the interstate commission fee on rates that can be charged to Illinois account wagering providers by out-of-state racetracks cannot exceed 9% (the cap was formerly 5%).

“A cap doesn’t mean that’s what you have to pay; it’s just a level you can go up to,” Miller explained. “There’s marquee meets around the country that are at a higher rate—Del Mar and Saratoga (for example) deserve a higher rate than 5%. When we were at a cap of 5%, we weren’t able to take those tracks, because we would be selling their signal short.

“Having a cap at 9% allows you to have good faith negotiations back and forth with all these tracks around the country, and it opens the ability for our patrons to be able to wager on these signals again.”



many thanks to those with the fortitude to bring this event to a pleasant conclusion for all ADW users in Illinois.
and to people like clocker terry, your time would be better spent learning a trade or profession than acting like a little contrary *** on a board like this.

why dont you step up to a mans board like nyratoday.net  where we can teach you about thoroughbred racing and wagering.

 doubt you'll show. there, your just a little school girl in a big pond of people who would make your knowlwedge look like the school girls knowledge you actually manage to remember.
now go change your tampon you smell.

thanks again to those who participated in this endeavor.  dude

If it's somewhere featuring you on a regular basis, it would be a definite step DOWN.

You're right about that. I get entirely too much of you right here.

Wait - weren't you boycotting visits to Arlington? I think it was the 47-percent drop in ADW bets since the cap and its aftermath that motivated change.

That was actually a question that occurred to me, as well, but I was hoping the whole thing would just sort of go away. Alas. I think that's a first as far as "insults" on this forum, though, and I thought I had seen pretty much everything. His other place must be quite the gathering of scientists.
