Since the landmark SCOTUS decision to strike down PASPA in May 2018, states have been passing legislation to legalize sports wagering. New Jersey, Nevada, Delaware, West Virginia, Pennsylvania, Road Island, Mississippi and New Mexico already offer sports betting at land-based casinos. Arkansas and New York have passed legislation and will soon have sports books. So the question of whether or not expanded sports betting would ever be accepted in U.S. has been answered.
But fear not, there are plenty of other replacement questions in need of answers… What can sports betting do for my casino floor? Will it help my brand? Will a sports bettor translate to slots and table games revenue as well as retail dollars?
