The affect upon the licensed gambling industry has been no different in that regard, opening new product platforms and access to a wider consumer base. International and national sporting bodies seek to control the betting product and to obtain increased revenues from licensed gambling operators that offer betting on sporting events. In some jurisdictions there are fears that the introduction of new betting licensing regimes will serve to reduce the income that sports currently receive from state gambling monopolies.
The professional sporting movement has been particularly proactive in pressing its case through various forums where the focus has been on the promotion of sport. As such, there must be a serious risk that the policy considerations of these issues have not been balanced or properly informed. The consultation sought to obtain information regarding the basis of the commercial arguments present by sports and to consider the existing integrity mechanisms Overall, the response was limited both in number and in the information advanced, notably in relation to the professional sporting sector.
There is, however, considerable material within the public domain that provided more than sufficient information for a detailed assessment of the legal, commercial and integrity aspects surround the sports betting debate The European Commission has rightly determined that sport is subject to EU competition law and internal market provisions in so far as it constitutes an economic activity with the specificity of sport being assessed on a case by case basis , and has rejected a general exemption as proposed by the Independent European Sport Review, funded by UEFA EU case law provides that gambling is a service and subject to the application of the Treaty, notably Articles 49 and 56 TFEU ex Art.
The Database Directive and judgements surrounding its application to sporting data such as fixtures lists, determined that this data amounts to creation and not investment, which does not fall within the scope of the protection of the Directive. This means that this potential source of revenue for professional sports can be nowhere near as high as they would like, or in some cases, had expected prior to the ECJ s ruling in BHB v.
William Hill. It is worth noting that the latter provides 3. The assertion that licensed gambling operators exploit the sporting product and should pay additional revenues as a result does not recognize that many other products also seek to associate themselves and exploit sports to profit However, those businesses are not pursued for a greater contribution to the sporting sector, or control over their commercial products or trading practices.
It must be underlined that the licensed gambling sector pays everything it is legally obliged to pay to sport and invests substantial funding over and above that amount, primarily in the form of sponsorship and joint ventures with sporting bodies In FIFA, UEFA and the IOC had combined revenue streams that amounted to over 4bn effectively tax free with the five major European football leagues accounting for another 7.
In addition to this, sport and its participants receive numerous fiscal advantages through State aid and taxation measures, and use, or are located in, offshore tax havens This is not a criticism of any tax efficient policies or preferential tax treatments that are employed or enjoyed by sporting organisations, but it does bring into question the public attacks that have been made by some sporting representatives on online gambling companies who choose to base themselves in jurisdictions providing comparable taxation regimes The argument presented by sports that a new EU wide statutory mechanism is required to permit sports greater control over the betting product and to enforce additional payments from licensed gambling operators does not appear to be valid, necessary or proportionate There is ample income within the professional sporting sector, which is markedly more affluent than the betting industry, to fund both integrity and grassroots sport.
Whether or not that sporting income is currently being distributed in a fair manner through its various solidarity mechanisms is an issue for each sport to determine and not for this report to examine With regard to the integrity of sport, again professional sporting bodies seek control over the operation of the commercial betting product.
Sport has determined that sports betting, or more specifically certain types of bets, make it more susceptible to corrupt activities and a result that sports should have control of betting and, as a minimum, receive integrity payments from licensed gambling operators that offer betting products on sporting events Unfortunately, corrupt activities do occur in sport betting and non betting related.
Those operators have also invested considerable resources in establishing integrity mechanisms that seek to detect and deter corruption in sport linked to betting All of these are important ingredients in a joint effort by both industries to protect the sporting and betting products, but which have been principally promoted by licensed gambling operators.
Indeed, licensed gambling operators have a particular commercial interest in ensuring that the sporting product, and by association, the betting product are not corrupted. It is fundamental to understand that the European licensed gambling industry is the likely victim of any fraud that is perpetrated and in no sense can it fairly be described as the polluter This protection is, however, predicated on the establishment and enforcement of suitable rules by sports and their ability to act promptly when receiving information from gambling operators.
There are some good examples within sport, but the vast majority declined to provide their betting rules as part of this study; the overall position is therefore unclear. The establishment of such information sharing arrangements with the RGA formed a particular aspect of this report s consultation, yet of the sporting bodies invited to discuss establishing an MoU, only 2 responded positively With regard to suggestions that the commercial sporting sector should have control of the betting product, again it has to be determined if the argument presented is valid and the action necessary and proportionate.
The evidence strongly demonstrates that it is not As the British Gambling Commission has rightly pointed out, there would need to be a very strong evidencebased justification to introduce and enforce statutory licensing regulations that would essentially be a restriction on trade There is no available evidence to suggest that restricting bet types would prove an effective mechanism to ensuring a significantly increased level of protection for sport in a global market when the very people that constitute the threat are the very ones that would not be bound by such licensing or contractual restrictions What is self evident is that both the sporting and the licensed gambling industries have a common objective in safeguarding the integrity of sporting events, especially when the examples of serious corruption tend to point to the activities of organised crime groups and unlicensed betting operations which are commonly based outside of Europe Given the 3.
As they are confidential they do not form part of this publicly available report. In doing so, the views of the principal stakeholders have been taken into account. As such, it has been completed with a large degree of independence and without any bias. The Remote Gambling Association 2.
As such, they represent many of the preeminent organisations in the field of global online gambling. It is a condition of membership that all operators be licensed for gambling in Europe. Some members also provide other interactive betting channels, notably via the telephone, and extensive and multi jurisdiction retail gaming and betting services With regard to the latter, RGA members make up a large part of the retail betting markets in the United Kingdom UK and Ireland, and a number of outlets throughout mainland Europe in jurisdictions that license such operations.
RGA membership also includes the largest betting exchange in the world and the leading global providers of gambling software amongst its stock market listed and privately owned companies The organisation s members consequently represent many of the foremost global and multi platform licensed gambling businesses. The RGA, and its membership, is therefore an important stakeholder in the international gambling market and has a significant interest in the development of relevant commercial and regulatory policies in these areas These policies can have profound affects on the financial position of large multi national corporations and the continued employment of an international workforce numbering tens of thousands.
That in turn can also have financial affects on related markets, such as the sports sector, the financial outlay that operators attribute, and the promotion of sporting events. The debate has permeated into political mechanisms at all levels: state; national; and international. The professional sports movement has been particularly proactive in pressing the debate and promoting its views in these areas However, neither the RGA, nor the wider licensed gambling industry, has been invited to participate in many of the detailed discussions that have taken place, notably those that have increasingly been undertaken in sporting forums and discussions with policymakers.
As such, it could be argued that these debates have been somewhat incomplete in content and nature This report has been produced in order to inform the consideration of the issues by the RGA and its members. In doing so it has taken account of the comments, notably from sporting organisations and representatives of some national and state governments within the EU, regarding the impact of sports betting and the contribution made by licensed gambling operators towards the integrity and the financing of professional sport In endeavouring to respond in a constructive manner, it was determined that this study should seek to engage with all of the key stakeholders and to explore the opinions and concerns advanced.
The validity of those opinions and the establishment of additional mechanisms, noting the industry s existing legal, commercial and integrity responsibilities, could then be addressed in relation to the issues surrounding betting on sports This report has been completed on that basis and in line with the Terms of Reference see Figure 2.
Figure 2. To explore the principal challenges arising from the availability of betting on sport; 2. Engage with key stakeholders to elicit views and consider the validity of those opinions; 3. Produce a report detailing the key issues, notably, but not exclusively, within the European Union EU ; 4.
Provide recommendations on how best to meet any issues and challenges; and 5. Complete this work within a six month period mid June to mid December In seeking to meet all of the Terms of Reference, this report focuses on the key areas of the legal, commercial and integrity issues affecting betting on sport. There is particular coverage of related EU issues, although references and comparisons are made within this document to the wider international landscape Noting the above, the project was split into four distinct phases: development of approach; written consultation; oral consultation; and production of the report see Figure 2.
The results of that consultation process are provided in the following chapter To that end, selected organisations with an interest in the issues under discussion were contacted and invited to respond to one of four questionnaires tailored to specific sectors.
However, the consultation was open to any party that wished to engage in this process and the questionnaires were freely available from the RGA s website The consultation was publicised via a number of sports and gambling related online media channels. The written consultation, along with existing publicly available source material, formed the basis of subsequent oral discussions.
Those discussions were held with a broad range of stakeholders, and where those organisations were willing to participate All detailed responses to the written and oral consultations, and the contribution of those sources, have been gratefully received. The information gleaned from those exercises has made a significant contribution to the contents of this report, and ultimately to the scope and nature of the conclusions see Chapter 7 and proposed recommendations to the RGA The remarks attributed to licensed gambling operators are not confined to the activities of RGA members; the report considers and references the impact of the wider online and retail licensed gambling sectors and the industry s interrelationship with the professional sporting sector, notably within Europe, but also to a lesser degree at a global level It should also be noted that a wide range of source material has contributed to the content and findings of this report, and citations are contained in the footnotes.
Particular emphasis has been placed on the publicly available documentation produced by European institutions and sporting organisations in recent years The report has been produced with the principal aim of providing the RGA with an evidence based resource from which to consider its future approach to sports betting issues.
However, it is hoped that it will also make a useful contribution towards the wider sports betting debate and any subsequent policy discussions As this report has been written during the latter half of , figures for that year have been calculated using the average for the first ten months of the year. All figures prior to and including , have been calculated using the average exchange rate for that year, and all estimated figures for and after , at the rate This has principally involved: US dollars; pounds sterling; and euros.
It should also be noted that different jurisdictions have different financial years and that the figures have been used in relation to annual reports may vary accordingly. In addition, where figures were already available or had been re calculated in euros by the authors of other documentation, the figures have been accepted at those rates and may again show a slight variation to the rates listed above. All reasonable efforts have been made to ensure the accuracy of all of the figures.
The impact upon the gambling industry has been no different in that regard, opening new product platforms and access to a wider consumer base a fuller account of the growth of those new technologies is contained in the Appendices section of this document Telephone betting has been in place for some considerable time; however widespread availability of computers and mobile phones has seen increasing global internet access and broadband penetration. Through these technologies, e commerce has become ever present and a routine modern day activity It has also created a highly competitive market place, both between other interactive gambling companies, the long unchallenged pre eminence of the retail sector, and fiscal measures between jurisdictions, all of which has considerably benefited consumers but which has also challenged the viability of national laws primarily based on physical boundaries The sports betting market is but one of numerous products that licensed gambling operators can provide.
Some seek to offer a variety of these products, whilst others seek to focus on offering a particular gambling service. FIFA Modern technology, and especially the opportunities for sports betting via the internet, represents an insidious danger to the integrity of the game. In addition, FIFA s 55th Ordinary Congress in Marrakech on 11 and 12 September , concluded that a special task force be set up to consider these issues in more detail and determine appropriate actions and solutions The FIFA Task Force For the Good of the Game began work in November with a view to formulating proposals in readiness for a meeting in early , which included a separate event specifically on illegal betting.
Lord Faulkner, a member of the British House of Lords and author of a report about betting on sport, was enlisted as a specialist In March , a Task Force directive determined that every player, official and match official would be required to sign a declaration before the World Cup, pledging not to take part in betting of any kind in connection with the FIFA World Cup matches. Chaired by Lord Sebastian Coe, it met for the first time in October , with the objective of protecting and promoting the integrity and transparency of world football.
It is only right football obtains its fair share of income from betting. The latter agreed an Ethics Resolution to consider, amongst other issues: match fixing; corruption; and illegal betting. Blatter: Drawing the line May 9 fifa. To that end the body shares best practice, raises awareness of issues affecting sports, and encourages sports to take joint action to protect and promote their rights As such it seeks recognition from Governments across the world, and effective protection for their rights under law.
That includes, the creation of a regime for sports betting that enables sport to protect its integrity, and establishes a fair return to sports for the use of their events by betting operators The organisation presently has around 40 members across a range of sports. It has strongly supported the European Parliament s Report on the Integrity of Online Gambling, which recommended the protection of sporting events from unauthorised commercial use, and the French draft law proposals to require an agreement between a sporting event organiser and a French licensed online betting operator before betting can take place on that event SROC continues to lobby European institutions and Member States to establish additional statutory mechanisms to deliver what it determines to be a fair return for use of the sporting product by gambling operators.
Independent European Sport Review October 2. As such, the report can be said to have a degree of credibility both within sport and various European political mechanisms It was initially devised to assess issues affecting the modern football environment within Europe, particularly the EU, and the implementation of the principles of the European Council s Nice Declaration of regarding the special nature of sport see Chapter 3 Whilst still principally focused on football, the contents and recommendations of the final document published in October were deemed to encapsulate the general issues facing European sport.
European Commission Competition law and Internal Market provisions apply to sport in so far as it constitutes an economic activity It also invited Member States to reflect upon how best to maintain and develop a sustainable financing model for giving long term support to sports organisations, 29 and committed to a study on the financing sport including gambling income The White Paper also notes that a growing part of the economic value of sports is linked to intellectual property rights, but again there is no specific action in this area.
Some sports and Member States expressed some disappointment with the White Paper, notably its conclusion surrounding the specificity of sport see Chapter 4 , namely that sport is subject to the application of EU law, and that a general exemption for sport from law was not justified Sports betting has increasingly been an issue for discussion between Member States and sporting organisations, both within and outside of European sports forums.
The Biarritz Declaration agreed by Sports Ministers during the French Presidency of the EU committed the European Commission to regular dialogue with the international sports movement, and betting both the integrity and the fair return argument has been an issue during those deliberations Discussion regarding sports betting appears to be gathering momentum in this sports forum and, with a competence for sport albeit supporting and the associated dedicated funding and more formal role for sport in Commission policies with ratification of the Lisbon Treaty, there is good reason to suppose that sports will heighten their activity via this platform.
European Parliament 2. In addition, it noted the practical and legal limitations of proposed methods to block online service provision, and that the report does not adequately reflect the position in all Member States. Council of Europe 2. The 11th Council of Europe Conference of Ministers responsible for Sport, held in Athens in December , agreed a resolution that invites the Council, through its Enlarged Partial Agreement on Sport EPAS , to consider: match fixing; corruption; and illegal betting The resolution proposes that the Council s EPAS draw up a new draft recommendation to [Member] States on corruption, match fixing and illegal betting which could form the basis of a possible new convention on these subjects to help achieve integrity controls and a fair return to sport for grassroots funding as regards betting European Commission White Paper on Sport July 30 European Commission White Paper on Sport July 31 Council of Europe Sports Ministerial Ethics Resolution December It is a global.

Often, change takes time. Put simply, states are most interested, in general, in maximizing taxable revenue and shaping the market as such. It should be obvious the primary concern for all stakeholders is indeed preserving the integrity of games — both through betting integrity and sporting integrity.
But after that, decisions boil down to money, which lead to decisions about the appropriate tax rate and which regulatory body perhaps a brand new one is best equipped to oversee legal sports betting. When might the feds make another run? Former Utah Sen. Orrin Hatch and New York Sen. Both of them filled the void created by the now-defunct federal law.
Regulated markets are not homogeneous across the U. Illegal operators have some advantages and will retain some or many customers in the era of legalization, but legal sports betting through state-licensed operators has loads of upside, is generally safe, and is only getting better thanks, in part, to technological advancements and fierce competition for market share.
You can use your ID and other verification measures online to establish an account at any state-licensed sportsbook. This saves a trip, gas money, and allows people to easily establish several accounts for the sake of line or price shopping. It depends on the state. Some states only allow mobile sports bets to be placed on casino premises or another licensed gaming facility like a tavern. The state is able to enforce this policy through geofencing technology.
Basically, the location function on your phone has to be turned on to place a wager, and the app detects where you are located. You must also be located within the state where you are placing the bet. For example, spread bets at most legal books are on both sides for an NFL game. Look through a menu, pick your wager s , print the ticket and watch the game.
Where kiosks are offered you can redeem your winnings at the machine or at the sportsbook ticket window. Read more about kiosks here. Everyone who enjoys legal sports betting should be grateful to the state of New Jersey. Code Chapter Congress passed the law in with backing from the major professional U. The law, which the high court ruled unconstitutional in May , basically said that it was unlawful for a state its state legislature , Nevada excluded, to authorize or license sportsbooks.
Writing the majority opinion in a decision with some agreement by Justice Breyer but some disagreement in part released on May 14, , Justice Samuel Alito stated :. The legalization of sports gambling requires an important policy choice, but the choice is not ours to make. Congress can regulate sports gambling directly, but if it elects not to do so, each State is free to act on its own. Our job is to interpret the law Congress has enacted and decide whether it is consistent with the Constitution.
PASPA is not. The Constitution gives Congress no such power. The judgment of the Third Circuit is reversed. Delaware Gov. Though a bit disappointed that Delaware beat it to the punch, New Jersey still needed to pass its actual legal sports betting law before sports wagering could begin at state-licensed operators.
Phil Murphy placed the first bet that morning around 10 a. Of course, France won the World Cup in and the St. Louis Blues won the next Stanley Cup, but never mind that. From that point, more retail or brick-and-mortar sportsbooks opened across New Jersey, including the FanDuel Sportsbook at the Meadowlands, which has proven the most popular spot to bet both in person and online — certainly helped by its proximity to New York State and New York City.
DraftKings Sportsbook did come online first — officially on Aug. And it proved quite popular, thanks to a large existing database of users through its daily fantasy sports. New Jersey and Delaware were quick out of the gate and so was West Virginia mobile sports betting came later … sort of which had preemptively passed its sports betting law in March Also Mississippi mobile sports betting allowed on-premises only in passed a law that included language allowing legal sports wagering.
Other states that launched legal sports operations in included Pennsylvania November , mobile sports betting came later and Rhode Island November , mobile sports betting came later. In addition, in November voters in Arkansas approved a measure to allow casinos as well as legal sports betting at those properties. That was a lot of action for one year, and became even busier on the legislative front across the country, and brought even more action. Bills of all different kinds were introduced, discussed, and passed in multiple jurisdictions.

New statistics and new markets for legal wagering. No state has yet approved Statcast wagering. Likewise, the NHL is exploring the use of advanced stats for licensure and betting. This is the first partnership of its kind outside of Nevada. Large gaming entities for which sports betting is a very small fraction of overall revenue, such as MGM Resorts International and online-only, DFS-turned-sportsbook operators like DraftKings, are racing for market share.
As more and more states flip the switch for legal sports betting, we will see healthy competition and turf wars, which ultimately are good for the consumer. As exceptions, some states are putting clamps down and implementing market conditions that stifle competition, such as in Washington, D.
Speaking of…. What role do state lotteries have in sports betting? Does the lottery commission have the requisite experience to do it well and maximize revenue for state coffers? Should commercial operators be allowed to enter? What about a model where commercial casinos can operate online and in retail, but the lottery also gets to offer sports betting products of some kind?
In almost every state where the lottery exists which is most , the lottery wants to be involved in some capacity or have a cut. Tribal gaming exists all across the U. Tribes have exclusivity or the exclusive right to offer certain types of gaming in some states, or some limited exclusivity in others.
Some states have only tribal gaming and no commercial casinos at present, such as Minnesota and North Carolina. Overall, while some tribes are progressive and have already embraced and benefited from the sports betting opportunity, many tribes have approached it with skepticism. Sports betting, unlike slot machines, can be pretty volatile and provides much lower profit margin.
It takes experience. Sportsbooks take up space. Is it worth it to create or re-appropriate room for a sportsbook? Will it be akin to another amenity like a spa and bring in a new kind of patron? These are among the questions that tribes are exploring nationally. Often, change takes time.
Put simply, states are most interested, in general, in maximizing taxable revenue and shaping the market as such. It should be obvious the primary concern for all stakeholders is indeed preserving the integrity of games — both through betting integrity and sporting integrity.

The judgment of the Third Circuit is reversed. Delaware Gov. Since sportsbooks usually charge high fees and end up with the housing winning, new platforms like HEROcoin offer peer-to-peer betting and provide transparency in the flow of money and terms.
In the U. For the sake of comparison, Nevada, the only U. Worldwide, the most popular sports to bet on are professional football and basketball see below. Both fantasy sports and traditional sports betting are popular forms of gambling based on sports outcomes, but there are key differences. For one , fantasy sports betting is legal.
And, in fantasy sports, your opponents are other human players, rather than bookmakers like in traditional betting. In fantasy sports, a group of human players, called a league, select from real-life athletes to create imaginary teams. Based on the performance of each athlete throughout the season, the team is allocated points. To win, your team must have won the most points throughout the season, which typically lasts for a few months.
A popular subset of fantasy sports is daily fantasy sports DFS. DFS lasts for a day instead of a season. While leagues in regular fantasy sports are typically comprised of friends, with DFS you compete with random people you are matched with. The winning pot can reach millions of dollars. While fantasy sports has been legal , daily fantasy sports has operated in a more of a grey area. Fantasy sports was legalized in because it is primarily an activity amongst friends, not about wagering money, and is a game of skill instead of chance.
In addition, players find out whether they win or lose in a matter of months—not in minutes or even seconds as is possible in traditional gambling. DFS, on the other hand, has neither of those arguments working for it. The ruling applied to a case brought by New Jersey, which has promised to be implemented by June However, other states will need to consider the issue for themselves. States certainly have an incentive. Legal sports betting would provide additional tax revenue, based on income tax on winnings or as an excise tax on casino revenue less those winnings.
However, there will be many licensing, taxing, as well as potential demands from leagues to sort out. Specifically, states will also have to consider who to tax, and what the appropriate rate is. Nevada currently imposes a 6. States will also need to figure out where to allow gambling and whether to permit online betting.
Another factor to consider is who to revenue share with, such as with sports leagues, individual teams, and with bookmakers. According to ESPN , conservative estimates indicate that by the end of , eight or nine states will have permitted the full gambit of sports betting at casinos, racetracks, and other locations—which may grow to 12 or 14 by the end of Still, regulation is hardly final.
In addition to the obvious beneficiaries, casinos , racetracks, and online wagering websites, there will be a slew of new opportunities for nascent and legacy companies alike to be discussed later. Even companies like YouTube, Twitter, and Facebook may see new revenue streams. Significantly, sports leagues are seeking their slice of the pie.
Naturally, sports operators and sportsbooks insist that the games would be in operation regardless. The casino lobby also opposes the fees, contending that the leagues will already benefit from the increased interest and engagement with games.
The average NFL fan who is a bettor watches games a year. Thus, it stands to reason that allowing viewers to legally become sports bettors will make them more likely to watch sports. This ruling is a welcome change for the sports television industry, which is facing pressure from streaming services, social networks, and video games. With this new change, sports consumption and engagement is likely to increase since fans might have a new, vested interest in outcomes.

While fantasy sports typically requires more skill and analysis, sports betting is more of a casual enhancement to typical sports consumption.
Still, they will face more competition with casinos and sportsbooks. Or, states that will start by issuing licenses to physically on-site customers looking to move to include an online model, might work with such online operators. For now, it seems they are open to new options and opportunities. DraftKings can leverage its existing 10 million users and plans to release a sports betting product shortly. Irish bookmaker Paddy Power Betfair is currently in merger talks with FanDuel, in an effort to establish themselves in the U.
Since UK sports betting regulation is projected to clamp down on amounts customers can stake, opportunities in the U. Some believe that legalized sports wagering could detract from eSports and daily fantasy sports, which have to some degree served a replacement for those interested in making predictions about sports outcomes.
The new ruling could introduce more competition for these categories, especially if they are drawing from the same customer base.
