Legal Online Sports Betting in Nebraska Update

Legal Online Sports Betting in Nebraska UpdateSports Betting in Nebraska has been legal since 2021. However, it is only available for in-person sports betting at retail sportsbooks. Thus, sports betting in the Husker state is very limited and gaming officials in Nebraska want to change that. According to the latest Legal Online Sports Betting in Nebraska Update, there might be a chance that it will happen in 2025.

A coalition of licensed operators in Nebraska has urged Gov. Jim Pillen and state legislators to engage in discussions regarding a proposed online sports betting bill. The bill has the potential to generate an extra $30 million in annual revenue, which could be allocated towards property tax relief.

Ho Chunk Inc., the parent company of WarHorse Gaming, is also calling on lawmakers to deliberate on legislation that would authorize a constitutional amendment during a special session scheduled for July 25th.

Furthermore, several lawmakers in Nebraska agree that online sports betting is worth considering. State Senator Terrell McKinney (D-North Omaha), among the mere 15 Democrats in the 49-seat Legislature, concurs with certain legislators in the Republican-controlled unicameral chamber agrees.

According to an interview with KETV, he said “We’re missing out because we want to be the ‘nanny state’.”

Oklahoma Sports Betting Bill Stalls in the State Legislature

oklahoma sports betting billThe Oklahoma sports betting bill has hit a roadblock in the State Legislature, primarily due to Governor Kevin Stitt and the state’s tribes' inability to compromise. Matthew Morgan, chairman of the Oklahoma Indian Gaming Association, noted that despite the governor's backing, there is a distinct lack of enthusiasm for legalizing sports wagering in the state.

Morgan further highlighted that the 25 member tribes in his association have not seen any sincere efforts from state authorities to engage them in this matter. He also pointed out that sports betting offers poor profit margins. According to bookie pay per head experts, the tribal chiefs would be open to negotiating a contract within the boundaries of their current compacts. However, they are not interested in signing additional compacts or taking on more financial risk.

The US sports betting landscape changed significantly in 2018 when the U.S. Supreme Court overturned the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act. This act had long prohibited state-sponsored sports gambling, with a few exceptions. The court's decision came after years of unsuccessful attempts by Republican politicians to legalize sports betting. In November, Governor Stitt surprised legislators and tribes with his proposal to make it legal.

Several US States are Considering More Sports Betting Restrictions

Several US States are Considering More Sports Betting RestrictionsWhen it comes to legal sports betting, the U.S. is a fairly new player in the sports wagering industry. This is because sports gambling has only been legal for 6 years since the repeal of the PASPA Act. Today, 38 States have legal sports betting with more to come. However, it has also brought a number of new problems to the table. Thus, several States are Considering More Sports Betting Restrictions to combat these gambling-related issues.

As the sports betting market matures in the U.S., we will see more sports betting regulation as more problems arise. At the moment, the sports betting restrictions that have been trending are the use of credit card for gambling and college prop bets. Thus, a few states, concerned citizens, and lawmakers have been bringing up these issues and want something done about it.

According to gambling analysts, this is a normal course of event for any country that has made gambling legal. In fact, the UK and other countries that have had legal sports wagering for years have already gone thru these changes in gambling regulations. However, they are by no means perfect. For example. The UK have had a regulatory body for only 24 years despite sports betting being legal since 1960. Thus, they are still in the learning process.
