The US midterms and what they mean for the industry

| By Cess Abrogena

This year’s US midterm elections have plenty riding on them for the industry.

iGB has put together a panel of experts to discuss the fallout for US sports betting, online casino and land-based gaming.

California dreaming

A clash of the titans in California looks set to end in disappointment for both sides. There’s still much to discuss, namely whether an immovable force and an unstoppable object can reconcile after a bruising campaign. And more importantly, when will legal betting actually come to the Golden State?

State elections to watch

Developments in several state legislatures could also have a game-changing impact for US gaming regulation. Sports betting and casino hangs in the balance in Georgia, while Minnesota candidate Scott Jensen has voiced support for legal wagering.

Then in Oklahoma, governor Kevin Stitt may have his second term denied by disputes over tribal gaming.

That’s not even mentioning potential developments in Kentucky, Missouri and Virginia. In a number of other states, sports betting, igaming and land-based developments all hang in the balance.

Change at the top

In addition, Congress looks set to be significantly reshaped, bringing new challenges and opportunities, supporters and detractors to the industry.  

And one key question remains, will 2023 be the year online casino in the US finally accelerates across the nation?

iGB and its panel of leading industry names will cover all the key developments from the 2022 midterms.
