Alabama’s House of Representatives is to run the rule over a new bill that aims to legalise land-based and mobile sports wagering in the US state.
Sponsored by Representative John Rogers, House Bill 336 is currently with the House committee on Economic Development and Tourism after being introduced late last week.
The bill states that consumers would be able to place sports bets in person at approved locations across Alabama, as well as on mobile and other digital platforms when located inside the state.
Should the bill pass into law, a total of four relevant licenses would be on offer to operators interested in offering sports betting in Alabama. The Alabama Sports Wagering Commission would be created as part of the bill and be responsible for awarding licences.
