Supreme Court To Rule On Legal Sports Betting
The US Supreme Court is set to rule this year on New Jersey’s challenge to the prohibition against sports betting in all but four states. If the ban is overturned, a report says that Louisiana could be one of 18 states to file legislation to regulate sports betting.
Managing Director at Eilers and Krejick Gaming Chris Grove says his firm analyzed the different gaming players in Louisiana.
Louisiana’s legislative session begins in March, but there has not been any indications that a lawmaker is planning on filing a bill to legalize a bill in the state. Grove says placeholder legislation could be filed, while they wait for one of the three possible outcomes from the Supreme Court hearing.
