Situations on The Field
The online betting industry in the United States is still in its infancy, with the final picture unlikely to emerge for at least another couple of years. The most pressing question at the moment is which states will legalize it and when.
Just after years of devoted electoral campaigns and assistance from then-Governor Chris Christie, New Jersey became the first state to legalize online gambling after PASPA. As things currently stand, each casino and racetrack can issue three online licenses. A number of partnerships have already been formed between these physical locations and online sportsbooks, with more on the way.
The ability to facilitate in-play betting was the key feature that executives were looking for in terms of functionality and gameplay. As the number of bets placed after the game begins to rise, real-time capabilities are becoming increasingly important.
This was noted that the most popular US sports (football, basketball, ice hockey, and baseball) are ideal for in-play betting. The action’s pacing, in particular, allows for a plethora of betting opportunities, not to mention a diverse range of usual ranking events and distinct plays. Soccer is by far the most popular sport for players to bet on in the rest of the world.
