Keep Federal Regulation Out of Sports Gambling
Published by The New York Times, May 23, 2018
In the wake of a United States Supreme Court ruling striking down a ban on sports betting, state gambling regulators are fighting suggestions by major sports leagues that gambling should be overseen at the federal level.
James Kilsby, managing director of Gambling Compliance, an independent research service, said that states see suggestions that sports betting fall under federal control as an encroachment on states’ rights. “All forms of gaming have historically been regulated at the state level,” Mr. Kilsby said. “I think you’re going to see the gaming industry be extremely reluctant to bend on that issue.”

The Supreme Court’s decision to effectively legalize sports betting could be a big boon for media companies, according to a forecast from Evercore ISI analyst Anthony DiClemente. “Sports betting could drive $7bn incremental US ad spend in 2019,” DiClemente wrote in a note to investors this weekend, estimating that about half of that money would go to digital advertising.
GamblingCompliance, a company that tracks the activity across the U.S. and Europe, estimates that in addition to Nevada, five states will have legalized sports gambling before the end of the year. In five years, the number could grow to as many as 38.

Sports betting has been more or less banned in the states for nearly a quarter of a century. That could change drastically after the Supreme Court on Monday opened the door to make sports betting legal in any state that wants to legalize it.
Chris Krafcik of GamblingCompliance, an independent gambling analysis company, said this decision is “transformational.” It means some 20 to 40 states can and probably will soon move forward on creating their own sports betting markets worth an estimated $1 billion in annual gaming revenue.

For decades, sports betting has been illegal in the US outside Nevada. With a Supreme Court ruling Monday, that’s about to change, likely before the upcoming NFL season kicks off. But don’t get too excited—or horrified, depending on your perspective—about the future of online sports gambling just yet; it won’t come all at once, and it won’t be everywhere.
GamblingCompliance, a company that provides legal and regulatory services to casinos, pegs the potential revenue to casinos from legalized US sports betting at anywhere between $2 billion and $5.8 billion per year, with states taking a still-to-be-determined cut.
