Hello from Sin City, my friends! Here’s what’s happening, This Week in Gambling! Hello players, and welcome to This Week in Gambling. I’m your host J.Todd… just don’t get me wet, or feed me after midnight, and everything will be just fine! This week’s big story is that despite the recent threats from the US federal government, online gambling and sports betting continue to expand across America. Betting on sports is now legal in eight states! Plus, the nation’s capital, Washington DC, just passed legislation to regulate the activity. However, that’s hit a bit of a snag and might be delayed for a while. But that didn’t stop NBC sports from rolling out in-play betting there last week… sort of. NBC debuted a “predictive game” during a live broadcast of an NBA contest.
Real-time stats were displayed upon screens and players had to answer “predictive questions”. Even though it was free-to-play, and even though it technically wasn’t actual in-play betting, it was a great way to introduce the concept to America. And hey the winner still got $500! Speaking of expanded sports betting, Tennessee just threw their hat in the ring with new legislation to regulate the activity. That means over 20 US states are now moving in that direction… plus the eight that already have it… Plus, one of those eight, West Virginia , is now considering legalizing online poker and gambling!So let the Federales try to ban online gambling. Let them try to take control of sports betting away from the states. All they’re going to do is open up a ginormous can of legal whoop-ass on themselves when all those lawsuits come filing in… But hey… it will be fun to watch!
