- What is BetBash?
BetBash is a Sports Gambling Networking hosted by professional sports bettor Gadoon "Spanky" Kyrollos
BetBash has a four-pronged focus:
1.) Networking - Whether at the bar or during our speed networking event, your future collaborators are ready to meet you!
2.) Legends - Our industry rests on the shoulders of giants and The Sports Gambling Hall of Fame ensures they are immortalized.
3.) Education - Some of the best gamblers in the world both known and unknown come to share knowledge and create synergies. We can all learn from each other. This year, BetBash will be hosting over 20 educational seminars.
4.) Fun - Whether it be at the Watch Parties or at our four open bars, Las Vegas ensures a good time is guaranteed.
- I am just starting out in sports betting. Is BetBash for me?
Absolutely it is! The easiest and fastest way to get good at betting sports is to meet professionals who bet sports for a living. We ensure a supportive and welcoming environment where all levels of sophistication are welcome.
- I am already a professional sports bettor. Why should I come?
The Networking! Our founder Spanky says he makes incredible connections every year and learns so many new ways to win.
- The price seems really high. Is it worth it?
That's a personal question you will have to ask yourself. Spanky says that if you come away from BetBash with just one connection, it's worth the price of admission.
- Do you offer discounted room rates?
Yes. We will have links on our website with discounted rooms at both The D and Circa.
- There are so many successful people there. Is it ok to just walk up to anyone and have a conversation?
Not only is it ok, it is encouraged! The legends and pros that come to BetBash are happy to share war stories and talk about different ways to win at sports gambling. Don't be shy!
- But I am shy. Can shy people like me benefit from coming?
YES. Our Speed Networking event which is held the first morning of BetBash is designed as the ultimate ice breaker. Once you make your first friend at BetBash, it snowballs. Before you know it you won't be able to walk around without seeing a familiar face.
- Tell me more about Speed Networking.
Our Speed Networking event is held the first morning of BetBash. You will fill out a brief 2-minute online form indicating your interests. A computer will then pair you up with 15 people to have 6-minute meetings with. This event has become the favorite event of many of our attendees.
- What happens at the watch parties?
The watch parties have unlimited food and drinks while you socialize with other attendees while watching the sporting events going on that day.
- What does the Early Seminar Registration perk mean for VIP ticket holders?
Our seminars will have limited capacity. When we release the seminar schedule in late spring,
VIP ticket holders will have about a week to lock up a seat for the seminars they would like to attend.
We expect several seminars to sell out; however, there will always be a general audience seminar available at all times.
- Tell me about The Sports Gambling Hall of Fame.
The Sports Gambling Hall Of Fame is a physical hall of fame held inside The Circa Sportsbook. More details can be found on sghof.com
- Can I buy a separate Golf Tournament and/or The Poker Tournament ticket as a General Admission ticket holder?
No. Each of these tournaments are limited to about 100 people. They will both take place on August 6th before opening night registration.
- Where will the Golf Tournament and Poker Tournament be held?
Both will be held at offsite locations. Transportation (if necessary) will be provided.
- Can I purchase a separate ticket to the Sports Gambling Hall Of Fame
Yes. This is the only event where we will sell separate tickets for. A BetBash VIP ticket gets you access to both the hall of fame induction ceremony + dinner as well as the VIP open bar Legacy Club after party
- I don't know how to play golf and/or don't have golf clubs. Can I still buy a ticket for the golf tournament?
Absolutely! All skill levels are welcome. We will be playing a four-person scramble. Your ticket includes green fees, golf clubs (you can bring your own), and a lunch buffet.
- Are there prizes for the poker tournament?
Yes there will be over $10000 in cash prizes.
- Are there prizes for golf tournament?
Ideally we would like to have the tournament composed of evenly skilled teams but we can’t guarantee that. We will be presenting gift cards and a trophy to the winning team.
- What is the format of the golf tournament?
We will be playing a 4 person scramble (best ball) so even if you never played before you’ll still have a great time.
- What’s included in the golf ticket?
Green fees, transportation to and from the golf course, golf balls, golf club rental (if needed) and a lunch buffet.
- What’s the message to people who haven’t been to BB but are considering it? From the outside it feels like BB caters to previous attendees, but its growth is obviously tied to new bettors. Any plans to specifically welcome us noobs?
BetBash is a welcoming convention to all. We have events designed for new attendees to fit right into. From Speed Networking to all of our open bars, everyone that comes to BetBash wants to meet new people and learn more about their shared passion of sports betting.
