Delaware legalises sports betting

Sports-betting Delaware legalises sports bettingReading Time: 2 minutes

Delaware has become the first state to make full-scale sports betting, following the recent US Supreme Court verdict that allowed individual states to make a decision on legalising sports betting.

Inaugurating the legalisation of betting, Gov. John Carney put $10 on the Phillies game that night – and it paid off. The Phillies beat the Cubs 6-1.

For the uninitiated, on May 14, the Supreme Court struck down a federal law that prevented states from legalising sports gambling, ruling that the Congress can ban sports betting itself but said it cannot mandate what state legislatures do or do not pass.

Almost all the states are scrambling to change in the law, but Delaware was quick of the block and became the first across the finish line.

That makes Delaware the second state with fully legal sports gambling, following Nevada, which had legalised the practice before the federal law was passed in 1992.

Mark Eichmann of member station WHYY reports that casinos in Delaware are not anticipating a massive windfall as a result of the shift – especially as other states, most notably New Jersey, move to follow suit.

But local gamblers are pleased that they do not have to turn to online betting, or travel to Las Vegas, to place their bets, WHYY’s Zoë Read says.

And the state is hoping that gambling pays off – if not directly, then indirectly, Read reports:

“State officials expect the launch to make a significant contribution to tourism in Delaware — where 17 percent of visitors participate in gambling.”

“‘Tourism is a big thing in our state, particularly as we move into the summer season …’ Carney said. ‘Today we’re going to be first in offering them an entertainment opportunity so they can support their sports teams … by making a legal wager.’”

Some gambling-addiction researchers are worried about the consequences of legalizing sports gambling.

As the dust settles for Sweden’s online casino market

In the past few months, Sweden has moved to the center of the online gambling world. After years of restricting gambling, the government launched a “re-regulation” strategy and passed a new law allowing international online casino operators to apply for a license. However, casino operators have been active in Sweden for a long time, operating via the European Union. This change is more to get greater control over the industry. And of course, tax money, casino companies will have to pay a tax of 18%.

3 months on, the new gambling sector is starting to take shape

It’s only been 2 months since re-regulation kicked in, but the pace of change has been rapid. So far, the Swedish gambling authority has issued over 70 licenses to online casino operators. Among these, we find both old companies such as Unibet and Betsson, and new upcoming casino operators such as Dreamz, with more in the pipeline.

So, what’s new? Besides the tax, there is a great focus on responsible gambling. For starters, Sweden got a national suspension site in order to help people who want to exclude themselves on all casino sites operating on a Swedish license. Good initiative, which seems to be appreciated by both operators and players. Operators now also need to offer players to set a deposit limit per day, week and/or month. In addition, there has also been a restriction regarding bonus offers.

However, it hasn’t been all smooth sailing, there has been confusing as well. Laws are almost never black and white, there is always a gray area, and if it is not clear then problems will arise.
A perfect example of – Officials has warned the sector to establish moderate marketing. Another gray area, as the concept of moderate, is up for interpretation.

Will other European nations follow Sweden’s lead?

These teething problems could set back liberalization efforts in other countries. For example, there is an ongoing debate in the Netherlands about the role of online gambling.

In mid-February, the country’s parliament passed a law resembling Sweden’s, granting regulators the power to issue licenses to responsible operators. But there is no consensus about exactly how liberal this licensing system should be.

Apparently, many operators have expressed an interest in obtaining a permit, but the gambling authorities have promised to apply “strict conditions”. And February’s legislation also requested the government to investigate the merits of “a complete ban on online gambling ads.”

Experts think that the Dutch licensing operation will take a year or more to even get off the ground – a sign that regulators have learned from Sweden’s experiences.

So while the European market is liberalizing, governments are acting slowly and methodically. As Sweden shows, there remains scope for conflict that could set back the process.

However, the direction of travel is clear: more international operators, licensed markets, larger audiences. The question is how quickly the road is traveled.
