Gambling and the Law: Will the Supreme Court give gambling back to the states?

4 August 2017
Should betting on sports, or any other form of gambling, be legal? The first question is: Who decides? Until a few decades ago, no one would have thought the decision-maker was the federal government. In fact, for the first 150 years of American history, Congress had almost no role in matters that affected people’s daily lives. ... (read more)
 

Gambling and the Law: Supreme Court will hear NJ sports betting case

28 June 2017
The Supreme Court hears less than 0.001% of decisions from the federal circuit courts of appeal. So, why the New Jersey sports betting case? The dispute involves somewhat complicated language of a relatively unimportant federal statute – the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act, and attempts by ... (read more)
 

Gambling and the Law: Nevada legalizes parimutuel betting on esports

26 June 2017
The real goal is regulation, and saving eSports from itself. Betting on other people playing video games is different from betting on other people playing football, in one major respect: The National Football League oversees the game to the point where it checks the air pressure in footballs. There is no equivalent organization with eSports. ... (read more)
 

Gambling and the Law: The coming crash of the esports skins market

17 June 2017
At its most exciting, esports is an arena bursting with screaming fans, watching, and betting, as teams compete in video war games projected on giant screens.

Everyone in the gaming industry knows that Macau’s casinos suffered large downturns in revenue during the Mainland government’s corruption crackdown. Chinese high-rollers knew that high-stakes gambling became a risky business, far from the baccarat tables. When Beijing sneezes, Macau gets pneumonia. ... (read more)
 

Gambling and the Law: Are daily fantasy sports legal?

19 May 2017
Technology is speeding up changes in the world of gaming. It took almost two centuries for poker to evolve from Straight Poker – five paper cards dealt face down with no draw – to Internet Hold ‘Em linking players using computers in different states and even on different continents. Decades passed before ... (read more)
 

Gambling and the Law: Will Trump accidentally destroy Las Vegas?

12 January 2017
President Donald J. Trump’s greatest strength, his success as a businessman, is also his greatest weakness. Take, for example, China. For decades, the United States has had what looks like bizarre, self-contradictory positions toward the Peoples Republic of China and Taiwan. Prior to the Communist Party’s ... (read more)
 

What should daily fantasy sports do now?

24 November 2015
The two big daily fantasy sports (DFS) operators, FanDuel and DraftKings, and their backers are, in the immortal words of former President George H.W. Bush, in "deep-doodoo." But lawyers with legal shovels can probably dig them out. As recently as last year, the DFS industry's problems were relatively insignificant. ... (read more)
 

Gambling and the Law: Court gets New Jersey sports betting wrong again

19 August 2015
Last year, I wrote an article explaining why the federal Court of Appeal was incorrect in ruling New Jersey could not regulate sports betting. The same court has now got it wrong again, this time ruling that the Garden State cannot even deregulate sports betting. In other words, when it comes to sports betting, New Jersey may not regulate, and it may not not regulate. ... (read more)
