Minnesota Gets Sportsbetting Bill

This week the Minnesota Senate introduced a bill that would legalize sportsbetting in the state, joining the overwhelming number of other states that already offer the activity.

The bill was introduced by Senator John Marty as well two other senators, and would legalize and regulate the activity. There would be some stipulations, though. These include a ban on collegiate bets, in-game bets, and a prohibition on push notifications for apps.

There was a bill last year that would have legalized the activity, but it failed to reach the House floor for a vote, despite passing through numerous committees.

Senator Marty has been keen to press bills that have significant safeguards, and this bill is the culmination of those thoughts.

The bill has a ways to go, but Casino Listings News is following its progress and will be updating readers as appropriate.
