Missouri Senate vote on sports betting may come soon

We could see a vote this week in the Missouri Senate on bills looking to legalize sports betting in the state.

Mike Winter with the Missouri Gaming Association says any legislation needs to focus on cutting down the bets done right now off the books.

“If we put something out there that is not operationally going to work those bets are still going to be placed, and they’re still going to be placed in the illegal market,” Winter said, according to Missourinet.

A U.S. Supreme Court ruling last year opened the door for states like Missouri to legalize sports betting.
