Live from the Turf Club at Monmouth Park Racetrack - where the first legal sports bet in New Jersey was placed by Governor Phil Murphy in June, 2018 – Gambling.com Group Plc presents the first-annual American Gambling Awards.
Designed to reward excellence in the online legal sports betting market in the United States, the AGA’s presented 14 Golden Eagle statues to stakeholders from politicians to sportsbooks. ESPN draft analyst and New York Times best-selling author (and Badder Beats veteran) Matthew Berry presided over the ceremonies and was delighted that acceptance speeches were brief or non-existent.
The sushi table was pretty good, too.
Over on the red carpet, hosts Brant James and Ryan Butler, nattily dressed in their finest awards show attire, swooped winners out of the crowd like voracious bears at a salmon stream. David Rebuck of the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement? Got him. (He was presented with the first-ever Golden Eagle as regulator of the year). Jamie Shea of DraftKings? Got here after her group took home (all the way to Hoboken) top honors in fantasy sports.
