On May 14th, 2018, the U.S. Supreme Court granted the right of any U.S. state to legally offer sports gambling within their respective jurisdictions. This decision has many significant implications for both the sports and gambling industries in the U.S. It also opens the door for additional challenges to the problem gambling community in America, including Illinois. This webinar will review the history and development of sports betting in the United States. It will then provide a perspective on how this Supreme Court decision might affect gambling, problem gamblers and the sporting industries nationwide.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the origins and history of sports betting
  • Know the four states exempt from PAPSA prior to May 2018
  • Understand the characteristics of an action/sports gambler
  • Know the four structural characteristics of in-game/online wagering that can be harmful for a problem gambler
  • Learn how in-game betting and wagering can potentially change the professional sports industry
