Celine Dion sells Florida mansion for $38 million

The $72 million Florida mansion that Celine Dion and her late husband, Rene Angelil, had up for sale has sold, but it went for only $38 million. The price on the Jupiter Island 13-bedroom, 14-bathroom water-park estate was lowered several times in recent months.

WALLETHUB STATS

You won’t be surprised to know that Nevada ranked first in WalletHub’s rundown of America’s most gaming active states, but you might be surprised that it wasn’t Utah that came in last. The bottom of the ladder ranking went to Alabama, with Utah at No. 48 and Nebraska at 49. One-time Las Vegas rival New Jersey was No. 6, while South Dakota was No. 2 and Montana No. 3.

WalletHub also produced interesting stats today for the fastest 2 minutes in sports, the 2017 Kentucky Derby from May 5-6 in Louisville, Kentucky, as the first leg of The Triple Crown.
