The rise of mobile sports betting is not a new phenomenon. In fact, it really took off in the United States and became wildly popular. All of a sudden people had free access to millions of games, even the Super Bowl! And why not? It is much easier to watch a game on your cell phone than it is to be at an NFL stadium in New England watching it in person.
So what has this all meant for American gaming? Well, the short answer is that American gamers are about to enjoy a golden age of mobile sports betting. No big move. Hawaii is already one of the few states without any major gaming entity of any type, and even if it does start offering some free games it won’t be for long. That leaves only two states left open, and those are Oregon and Texas, both of which already have official gaming interests.
So what is a likely plan for these two states? Well, it appears that in the next couple of years, the Oregon legislature might pass a bill that would open up sports betting opportunities to all of the state’s state tribes. In order for this to happen, it will have to be passed by the entire state house and Senate, which means the likelihood of the bill making it through the House and Senate is slim to none. That doesn’t mean there isn’t some hope in Oregon, though.
Two of the largest gambling corporations in the world are Nevada and Delaware, both of which currently have very similar laws to that of Oregon. They allow wagering on all games including soccer, basketball, baseball, and hockey. In order for the casinos in these two states to start offering mobile betting to their customers, they will need to change their preexisting laws to allow them to do so. If the existing laws aren’t changed, then it looks like they won’t be able to offer the electronic options to their customers anytime in the near future. It could end up being a full-fledged war between the casinos and the full mobile betting industry in the coming years, which could end up causing the high costs associated with traditional betting to go back up.
On the flip side, the Delaware legislature recently passed a law that opens up the gambling industry to everyone. Right now, Delaware is the only state in the US to have a legal wagering ban in place. The law also allows casino gambling to take place in the state. This means that all casinos in the state will be fully open to everyone who wishes to participate. The implementation of this law, however, is still subject to approval by the state’s courts.
The other interesting development in the legal betting world is the fact that there are now first online sportsbooks in the entire world. The website called the Sports Betting Champ has become the first licensed book to offer sports betting in the entire world. The entire operation is run from Las Vegas, Nevada. The website is operated by two guys, who are also the owners of some of the most successful sports books in the country.
One thing that many people may not know about these sites is that they actually operate almost exclusively online. Almost every aspect of the operation is conducted through the internet. The casinos, for example, conduct all of their business transactions over the internet. The betting odds are posted on the home page of the site and all of the transactions, from placing bets on games to withdrawing your winnings, can all be done via the internet.
If you’ll recall, the first time the casinos opened up in the state of Delaware, they immediately started asking for a hefty license fee in order to set up shop. The new regulation changes were designed to level the playing field so that small bookies could start operating in the state. While this is a very good idea, it’s almost guaranteed that no bookie will actually start taking bets on games in the future in Delaware. There are very few other states in which gambling is regulated at the municipal level. It’s just another interesting factoid that the gaming legislation in Delaware was actually the first step towards legalized sports betting across the country.
