What do you think? Should online sports betting be allowed in California? Let us know in the comments below! Author: Canada Top Online Casino In a move that could have a significant impact on the future of online sports betting in the United States, three California tribes have announced their support for an operator-backed ballot measure. The measure, which is currently underway, would allow sports betting to take place in the state. This comes as opposition from other tribes intensifies.
Devil in the details? Under the online measure, 85% of online sports betting tax revenue would go to the state, with 15% going to the betting operators. That’s a departure from the current system in which 100% of sports betting tax revenue goes to tribal casinos, and could be a major sticking point in negotiations.
The tribal ad criticized bookmakers for drafting their CA sports betting measure without input from tribes. It also accused Robins of being “arrogant” and said he was trying to “buy his way into California.”
The ad also highlights that there is no uniformity in the way that betting is currently regulated in the state, which could lead to a patchwork of regulations if the measure were to pass.
The bookmakers’ response ad tries to downplay these concerns, saying that the measure would bring “much-needed tax revenue” to the state and would be subject to “strict regulation .”
It remains to be seen how this battle will play out, but it is clear that the future of sports betting in California is very much up in the air.
