Riverbed New York Big Apple

The Big Apple

I recently spent a fun filled week in New York City (NYC), aka the Big Apple. With a population of almost 8.5 million people NYC is the largest city in the United States. Population is not why NYC is called the “Big Apple” though. “Apple” was used as a reference in the early 1920s to reflect the payouts at horse racing tracks around NYC. Apparently the payouts were “Big,” hence the term “Big Apple”.

Now is the time to reward your users with some nice hefty payouts, give us a call and we will give you a sure bet.
