Legalized sports betting; Impact on Wisconsin

 

On Monday, the U.S. Supreme Court voted 6-3 to strike down a federal law that required states to ban gambling on the outcome of college and professional sporting events. So now that sports betting has been legalized, will it be offered in Wisconsin?

According to Republican State Senator Roger Roth of Appleton, it's up to the tribes to decide whether they'll offer sports betting at their casinos. We reached out to the Oneida Nation on Monday and they told us they're not prepared to respond to questions just yet about whether they'll bring sports betting to their casino.

Roth told us that he believes the larger casinos in the state will eventually offer it and that's likely where sports betting will stay.
