Figures in the Fight for Legal iGaming in America
Senators Harry Reid & Jon Kyl
The US Congress is hardly known for their ability to get things done but, in the case of Senators Harry Reid and Jon Kyl, that may actually be a good thing. The bumbling politicians’ bickering over who should introduce a Federal online gambling bill and when has left the Bill dead in the water.
Now depending on which side of the fence you’re on, the lack of Federal oversight in the US igaming market could be a very good thing.
If you’re a small operator in a small market, it makes things a lot tougher for your name brand competition. For the big operators, it means navigating a hodge-podge of local regulations.
Either way, the failure of Reid/Kyl is big news for the gambling business.
