While two years ago no one talked about, or believed in, regulated sports betting, the momentum is now only building up with efforts on both the state level (ground-breaking challenge in NJ now being supported by other states, including Louisiana, Mississippi and West Virginia), federal (Rep. Frank Pallone announced his plans to look into sports betting laws), NBA’s announcement that it favoured federal legislation (other leagues are rumoured to be changing their positions too) and AGA’s concerted effort over the last year to educate law-makers on the illegal sports betting and need for regulatory change. Most state sports betting will become allowed beyond Las Vegas over the next five years.

This ICE briefing provided an overview of the current battle, on various levels, for legalised sports betting in the USA, present opportunities and challenges on the road to regulation and attempt to predict timelines for change.

Topics included:
Current state of play in the US gaming sector - who is lobbying for what?
Predicting the congressional path ahead, how will potential federal and state regulation support the gaming sector?
How will the Trump administration influence timelines and political structure?
Will the sports leagues continue to emerge as supporters and, if so, in what way?
What will regulated sports betting mean to the different gaming channels in the US, including online, horse racing, DFS and casinos/Tribal casinos?
Focus on mature sports betting markets (e.g. Europe) - what can the US learn from the legal environment, mobile proliferation and in-play sports wagering?
