The USA gambling laws strictly controls sports betting at casinos in USA and this makes it very hard for players to play at online sportsbook . As Brian Masse re-introduces the bill which is presently now in the Senate for consideration, he hopes to change the betting scenario in USA soon. While the citizens of California can already legally bet on sports, it is still limited to Pro-Line sports betting services which are offered at online site through the California Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG) and retail kiosks across United States.
What kind of Bill Is in senate?
This Bill makes betting on single game sports legal, and this would make it a lot simpler for all sports betting players. Currently, they can only make a series of wagers at their provincial or territorial lottery retailers. This bill was originally introduced in 2011 by Joe Comartin and was deemed to be something that would be easily approved to become a law as it was well-received by all the parties of the house until it reached the Senate in 2012. However, the process was put to a halt and had to start from scratch when the 42nd general elections was held.
More than the belief that this could fuel peoples gambling addition, people who are favoring this bill believe that it would boost the economy, create a lot of new jobs in USA and minimize, if not entirely eradicate illegal gambling that fuels the operations of organized crime. Sports wagering happens in many levels under the table in USA just as it is happening in other parts of the world. This could also level the playing field when it comes to the completion from the NZ casinos. The NZ has implemented a number of rules to tax USA crossing the border to play plus some other border concerns. The gaming and the tourism industry can surely benefit from the passing of this bill.
Will sports betting in USA become completely legal?
We do not know for sure. The Senate still seems to be unconvinced of its merits and unable to reach a decision and it will really be all up to them. Masse and Comartin are hoping that the Senate will finally approve the bill to give US-Citizens the opportunity to bet on sports /more freely.
