Indiana a Step Closer to Legalizing Online Sports Gambling, Lawmaker Tells Hammer and Nigel
Indiana is a step closer to legalizing online gambling, according to State Rep. Alan Morrison.
Speaking to WIBC hosts Hammer and Nigel, Morrison said lawmakers have been working diligently to put together a piece of legislation that benefits the state and is 'good' for Hoosiers - adding that his bill would cover game integrity so people who bet know the game they're betting on is legit. His bill would also allow mobile sports betting.
"It would be pretty important, moving forward with this, that we recognize the importance of mobile gaming and how it could really increase the revenue. Not only back to the state, but more importantly, back to our different (gaming) properties."
In May, the U.S. Supreme Court struck down a federal law that bars gambling on football, basketball, baseball and other sports.
