Supreme Court lets states, including Ohio, legalize sports gambling

Supreme Court clears path for legalizing gambling

Now, other states can decide for themselves whether to get in on the action.

The case opens an opportunity for states to reexamine their position on legalization of sports gambling-something Congress banned in 1992 under the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act, known as PASPA.

The news spread online like wildfire and on the ground in Tunica.

Gov. Baker said he's planning to talk with Democratic legislative leaders about whether the state wants to participate in sports betting, and on what terms.

This could be a big win for casinos on the Gulf Coast as illegal sports betting already generates roughly $150 billion a year nationwide.

There are several bills now in place to allow sports betting in Illinois, but only one is fairly complete, said Tom Swoik, executive director of the Illinois Casino Gaming Association that represents five Illinois casinos, including Jumer's Casino Rock Island.

"We are a sports-minded culture down here", said Allen Godfrey, Executive Director Mississippi Gaming Commission. "People wanna bet, they're gonna bet", Burke says.

Degliomini said New Yorkers might be able to legally bet on sports as soon as this fall.

Degliomini has previously said the Doubletop Bar & Grill at Resorts World Catskills casino would go from sports bar to sportsbook if the federal prohibition was lifted. The winning bets are paid off by the sports book, by the casino.

Cannes festival organizers sign pact for gender parity
Nyssen said the festival "holds the keys" to moving women forward, not just in film but in a variety of industries. Cannes has come under repeated criticism in recent years over its poor record of selecting female filmmakers.

Tony Clark, the head of the MLB Players Association, called the Supreme Court's ruling "monumental, with far-reaching implications for baseball players and the games we love".

Most casinos on the Las Vegas strip are applauding the high court's ruling, including MGM properties, Caesars Entertainment, and of course, customers at the Westgate.

"I know that we don't know much about organized crime coming from New Jersey". He also hopes that a federal framework will be put into place to manage esports betting, in order to avoid an unnecessarily burdensome patchwork of regulations and requirements.

However, betting on college games taking place in New Jersey, and on competitions anywhere involving a New Jersey college, would be prohibited.

"We will see a lot of people come to MS and in particular Tunica that might not have otherwise come and hopefully they will see what they like and we can take advantage of it here", Franklin said.

The ruling doesn't mention esports specifically, but given the increasing commingling of conventional sports and esports, it's nearly inevitable that the former will lead to the latter.

Thomas said the move to include sports betting in last year's gaming expansion was important, not just because it gives Pennsylvania a head-start, but because it means the question of whether to allow it is already settled.

"I think it was just a matter of time before this was going to happen", Black said.
