Alabama Sportsbetting Bill Passes Through Senate

The state of Alabama is moving closer to getting casino games and sportsbettting after the Senate passed Senate Bill 310 with a margin of 27-4.

The bill would legalize slot machines, horse racing machines, video lottery machines, table games, poker, and more at land casinos around the state. The Alabama Gaming Commission would also be formed if this bill is signed into law. Licenses would range from between $5 million and $35 million, respectively. Online gaming would be covered as well, with a platform needing a specific license. Each land casino would get up to three skins to be operated.

Taxes would run 27% on slots, 35% on other casino gaming revenues, and 20% for sportsbetting revenues.

The bill will now move to the state's House, where it'll be debated and eventually voted on. If it passes there, it'll move to the desk of Governor Kay Ivey, who can sign it into law.

I have a friend who lives in Alabama. They're a huge (real) football state and will love being able to get action on their SEC games this fall. Here's hoping!
