Forget Atlantic City, try the Wall Street Casino
It seems like everywhere you go these days, the opportunity to gamble is omnipresent. There are OTB offices in every corner of the city, constant reminders about lotteries and mega-millions on the evening news and the local bodega, and all kinds of sports betting info in the daily papers. Oh, and Atlantic City is just a hop, skip and bus ride away. Well, there's more... The New York Post reports that Wall Street trading firm Cantor Fitzgerald is moving into the online gambling business with a new online gambling site, Cantor Casino. At the Cantor Casino, it will be possible to play roulette, blackjack, video poker, and video slots. To avoid all kinds of pesky regulations and rules in the U.S., the site will be operated by a separate subsidiary of Cantor Fitzgerald (Cantor Gaming) based in the British Channel Islands, and will not be available to U.S. consumers.
Anyone still doubt that Wall Street is just a giant casino?
