First sports betting launches outside Nevada: Policy and regulatory considerations from West Virginia, Mississippi and New Jersey



Nevada is no longer the only state with legal single-game betting. Following the repeal of PASPA, several  states have acted quickly to pass and enact legislation, approve regulations and offer legal sports betting to their citizens.

As more states prepare to address sports betting in the next legislative session in 2019, hear about legislative and regulatory experiences from West Virginia, Mississippi and New Jersey as the regulators from these three pioneering states present their states’ case studies during this ICE Sports Betting webinar.  Learn about legislative path, policy goals, how they have been achieved and what’s next for those states, from:

  • Jay McDaniel, Deputy Director, Mississippi Gaming Commission
  • Lou Rogacki, Deputy Director, New Jersey Department of Gaming Enforcement

U.S. Sports Betting & Wire Act – addressing key issues and questions for a successful regulation and operation of sports betting roll-out across states.


As emerged from many of the discussions at the recent GiGse in Miami, Wire Act poses a lot of doubts and challenges that will affect the roll-out of sports betting in the USA. Can one state outsource sports betting regulation and/or operation to another? Can operations across various states be controlled from one state only (e.g. Nevada)?

Our webinar experts posed those questions and answered them.

Presenters included:

  • Daniel Wallach, Shareholder, Becker & Poliakoff
  • Mark Hichar, Partner, Hinckley Allen
  • Anthony Cabot, Distinguished Fellow, University of Nevada-Las Vegas, William S. Boyd School of Law
  • Steve Geller, Broward County Commissioner, Dist. 5/ Former Florida Senator, GELLER LAW FIRM, PA
