The U.S. Supreme Court finally lifted the federal ban on sports betting, much to the delight of gambling fans and operators. Immediately, several U.S. states decided to regulate the game and open the doors of opportunities to many operators from across the globe.
With the repeal of the controversial 1992 Professional and Amateur Sports Professional Act, the biggest question that everybody is asking now is “what’s next for the U.S. sports betting industry?”
Panelists in this year’s Betting on Sports Week 2018, which will be held at the Olympia London on Sept. 18-21, are set to answer this question by thoroughly dissecting the U.S. Supreme Court’s landmark ruling.
Renowned thought leaders in the gambling industry will also give their insights on what opportunities have opened up, what avenues have closed, and what needs to happen after the U.S. decided to regulate sports gambling in the country.
