Indian Gaming Commission Responds To SCOTUS Decision On Sports Betting

Indian Gaming Commission Responds To SCOTUS Decision On Sports Betting

"With it federally being illegal for the last number of decades, it is something that we will have to seriously consider what avenues are there, and what approach we take if we are interested in putting a sports book into our establishment", said Rodriguez.

McLaughlin spent this week in Naples, Florida, this week for the Atlantic 10's annual spring meetings.

The sale of proprietary data to support such an application could be a revenue stream for sports leagues, which have been deeply conflicted about their position on gambling. That led to a new topic of conversation among conference coaches and administrators this week.

Earlier this week, the nation's high court struck down the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act of 1992.

Or will the rules remain as rigid as ever despite the move toward legalization?

"It's a little premature to say what this will mean for all of us", IL athletic director Josh Whitman said Tuesday. "The concerns that typically come along with gambling - we know what those are".

Such innovations will be "applying these new technologies to say something really precise about what goes on in the game", she said. The cost of regulating this new industry will likely be passed on to bettors.

"Today the Supreme Court sided with New Jersey in striking down the arbitrary federal ban on sports betting".

Through a spokesman, Virginia Tech athletic director Whit Babcock declined an interview request, deferring comment to ACC Commissioner John Swofford.

Tencent revenue tops estimates due to mobile games
Tencent's gaming business has historically done well, with the PC games segment being the company's cash cow for a long time. Daiwa Securities raised its target price for Tencent to HK$530 from HK$490 on what it said was "a stellar set of results".

Don't forget that numerous major players in Nevada - notably MGM and Caesars - have a major presence in markets likely to bring sports gambling to market quickly like New Jersey and Mississippi. "By the time they act on this, every state around us, like we had in 2009, will have sports betting. We will discuss with our membership and determine how we proceed".

If Congress had outlawed sports betting, such a law would not have implicated the anti-commandeering jurisprudence because it would have been a restraint on individual personal behavior and not a restraint on the discretion of state law enforcement or elected state representatives.

The four major USA professional leagues and the NCAA spent years fighting New Jersey's challenge to the constitutionality of the federal ban. The majority of the roughly 475 tribal casinos have those games and others like slot machines, blackjack and other table games, according to the National Indian Gaming Commission.

Virginia law now considers gambling illegal, part of a code section titled "Crimes Involving Morals and Decency". It may start with people going to sports books at racetracks and casinos, but inevitably there will be pressure to make it possible to place bets through a smartphone or other electronic device at home.

"I think it further marginalizes racing in the competitive gambling market, and that's not good", he said via email on Tuesday. "I just think it's out front right now".

Mark Giacini said he's placed those bets in Vegas before, but looks forward to having it in his own backyard. "Here's LeBron. He just fell into my lap" - but now you're fantasy gaming or gambling", said Ted Leonsis, who owns the Washington Capitals, the Washington Wizards, and the arena where the teams play. "We look at this as an amenity that we can offer our customers". "Your personal view may differ from what the climate's doing".

Gentile said legalizing gambling will make it easier to monitor.

"I'm not a constitutional lawyer", Cuban said in a phone call, "but, you can see online poker all of a sudden..."

The leagues are not the only winners, notes Darren Heitner, a sports lawyer. The decision this week allows states to legalize sports gambling. "We're going to follow what the league wants to do here and then be able to bounce off of that", he said. "There's too much inherent risk of conflict of interest". It is hard to imagine professional players that could impact the outcome of a game being compromised.
