Oh. My. Wisconsin was one of the five states who joined in a lawsuit to the federal government on the behalf of New Jersey regarding their hope to legalize sports gambling. If I’m using my brain, my guess is Wisconsin had some similar conversations about legalize sports betting. That’s fantastic news. Not any of us need more vices, but I’m all for stimulating the economy on people’s bad bets. I’m trying to think how Potawatomi would look like a sports book on NFL Sunday, or Ho-Chuck. These casinos look completely different and act different if they need a sports book. Additionally, it might pop another casino or two where the focus is sports gambling.
I’m not a law student, but I do believe states add their name to a suit to help it push forward so this could be all for naught who knows.
