Even though U.S is the biggest hub for gamblers across the world, yet online sports betting is not being taken legally over here and everyone surprises over this regulation. But if reports are to be believed, this rule can soon change and anyone can place online bets. Yes, you read it right; The Nevada Gaming Commission is seriously considering legalization of online sports betting not only in Vegas but across all 50 US States. However, there will be small changes to online gamblers, i.e., they would still have to visit their online casino’s offline division for physical verification to avoid any foul play as it is being assumed by all. Gamblers across the world are happy to see such an initiative by online gambling industry which would make it easy for genuine gamblers to sign up and go through with their genuine bets.
Actually, the attempt to make online sports betting a legal practice across US is not new, perhaps vice president and deputy general counsel at gaming technology company CG Technology, Quinton Singleton, has submitted his proposal to amend the state’s gambling regulations to Nevada Gaming Commission back in February, and according to coming reports, commission is expected to take a decision by next year. Although, sports betting is already allowed at least within Nevada but was very tedious for new aspiring bettors to initiate his online betting campaign and now after the new proposed regulation, anyone can simply sign up with any sportsbook with just one time physical verification process and start wagering money on his favorite sports.
The biggies of the industry are closely watching the developments in this initiative; they include Boyd Gaming, MGM Resorts, Wynn Resorts, Caesars Entertainment, and William Hill. Apart from them, there is a big list of small operators who are ready to capitalize the opportunity by bringing in a maximum number of bettors into their vicinity. If online betting takes a legal shape in the US, it would help open a biggest employment sector as well coz of mobile technology requirements mobile sport betting is largely expected to grow faster than traditional computer base online betting. Let’s wait and see how Gaming Commission takes the proposed offer and if we can see a legalized online sports betting industry across US this year itself!
