GiGse 2017 Sports Betting
As part of this interesting path forward for sports betting in the USA, there are today more questions than answers.
Our three questions from the conference:
1. How could regulated sports betting happen in the USA?
Looking back at 2016 and ahead to 2017, sports betting in the United States faces a lot of uncertainty. While advocates like the American Gaming Association have made considerable progress, questions remain. How COULD regulation happen? Does the NHL expansion to Las Vegas signify something larger? Certainly, the NFL’s move to Vegas is a positive sign? Time will tell…
2. If it is legalized, how will sports sports betting roll out here?
Based on our team’s experiences operating sports books in Africa, we see a lot of opportunity for sports betting to roll out through casinos and tracks. We know that it can work, based on the integration of our online sports book into a land-based casino group in 2013.
Furthermore, based on the opinions of our informed friends like Daniel Wallach, sports betting rolling out through casinos and tracks makes a lot of sense.
