Event description
This Town Hall program will bring together key policymakers and industry stakeholders to discuss the future of regulated sports betting.

About this Event

Last May, the U.S. Supreme Court’s landmark decision in Murphy v. NCAA overturned the federal ban on state-authorized sports betting. In the aftermath of that historic decision, eight states commenced legal sports betting operations. Rhode Island was one of those states. With this year’s state legislative sessions now underway, a number of other states in the New England area — including Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Maine, Connecticut and Vermont— are expected to consider the possibility of legalizing sports betting.

This unique Town Hall program will bring together the key New England policymakers and industry stakeholders to discuss the future of regulated sports betting and examine key policy issues. Program participants include legislators, gaming regulators, lottery officials, and gaming industry professionals.

Topics that will be addressed include:

  • Whether and to what extent should mobile wagering be permitted
  • Should a mobile betting license to be ‘tethered' to a land-based casino?
  • Should local municipalities be able to decide whether to allow sports betting establishments in their cities and towns?
  • Which state agencies should be tasked with regulating sports wagering?
  • The evolving role and influence of state lotteries
  • How should the tax revenues from sports betting be allocated for the benefit of the public?
  • How can state legislation and related regulations ensure that the integrity of the underlying sporting events are not compromised by the increase in betting activity?
  • What types of responsible gaming safeguards should be instituted?
  • Should the states require betting operators to share anonymized betting data in real-time with regulators, the sports leagues or other third parties?
  • Whether the sports leagues should receive a royalty or other forms of compensation from betting operators

This event will be live-streamed here.
