So whats going on in the USA, here is the latest March 2022 US Gambling News. Winter isn’t yet up, but significant changes are afoot in the US gambling sector. From New Jersey to California, Wisconsin in-between and even the digital betting world. Ample news stories are breaking that could potentially alter gambling rules and laws. We’ve got the details you need to know about each of them. Let’s start with New Jersey, where smoke appears to be clouding the headlines.
Will the Smoke Clear in New Jersey?
One of the longest-running debates in Atlantic City right now is whether AC casinos will continue to permit smoking in some areas of their venues. At present, the law dictates that they can permit smoking on up to a quarter of their gaming floors. They can also have a dedicated smoker’s section or ban it if they wish. While casino worker unions support abolishing smoking, the casinos seem to be against it. They claim they could lose up to 16% of their business. A bill could be on its way to the New Jersey Senate in the coming weeks that sheds some light on the issue.
Californians Already Dealing with Sports Betting Advertisements
Over in California, the issue is less about smoke and more about advertising. Elsewhere across the country, sports betting advertising has become more common since the activity has been legalized. However, in California, sports betting has not yet been made legal. Nonetheless, there are ample gambling ads flooding into the state. These are future gambling ads.
As votes on tribal casino operators and legalizing sports betting are set to commence in the immediate future, Californians are being tempted (or put off) by a wealth of pro-gambling advertisements. The pro-gambling ads are believed to have been formulated by a $100 million put together by seven major US sportsbooks, who are eager to ensure that Californians vote in favour of gambling.
Milwaukee Bucks Join the Betway Craze
Ever since the US gave each state permission to decide whether sports betting was legal for itself, Betway has been an active player in the industry. The UK-based sportsbook has become a firm favorite across many US states and has been at the forefront of gambling ads across the country. Their most recent partnership is with the Milwaukee Bucks.
However, adding the NBA team to their ranks isn’t the only major coup Betway has landed. After all, they already have partnerships with the 76ers, Bulls, Cavaliers, Clippers, Heat, Mavericks, Timberwolves, and Warriors. This helps Betway stand out as one of the top dogs for sports betting. Indeed, this rapid period of growth and sponsorship has seen Betway expand not Colorado, Indiana, Iowa, Pennsylvania, and New Jersey. Well that's all for our March 2022 US Gambling News.
