Now that states can legalize sports betting in the United States, sports books, sports betting casinos and online sportsbooks - maybe our very own Grande Vegas casino will have a sports section one day - are turning their attention to creating partnerships with sports leagues and teams. What are the advantages of such partnerships?

Pavia Italy

Pavia, in Northern Italy, was once known as “Oxford on Ticino” but today a more accurate description would be “Vegas on Ticino.” Pavia’s history goes back over 2000 years and includes the establishment of one of Italy’s most prestigious universities. But in recent years, residents have been turning to slot machines - real slots machines scattered all over the city and maybe also taking advantage of the Grande Vegas no deposit bonus codes - as the city’s main mechanical goods industry declines. And that’s brought big troubles to the city.

US Capitol Building

One of President Trump’s latest tweets has caused an obscure bill to be pulled from the House floor after House Republicans indicated that they would follow the president in opposing the bill. Trump tweeted “Republicans shouldn’t vote for H.R. 312, a special interest casino Bill, backed by Elizabeth (Pocahontas) Warren. It is unfair and doesn’t treat Native Americans equally!”

In multiple states, Native American tribes are emerging as key players in legislative debates over whether online casino sports betting will be adopted. The tribes are divided over the strategy, with some supporting legislation as long as it promises their operations a monopoly while others oppose the idea because, they believe, it will threaten their casinos and will threaten revenues that they need to fund essential services for their members.

From online casinos in Australia, to the burgeoning casino industry in the Far East, to the future of sports betting in the US, every day there is news as to the legalization and/or regulation of different forms of betting. 

Casino workers’ picket strike

Even though Nevada is a “right to work” state where unions have little legal influence, a union presence among Vegas casino workers is growing. Last year’s strike by members of the Culinary and Bartenders Union almost brought activity in the casino capital to a halt. By the strike’s end, the unions were able to negotiate a strong contract that went a long way to protect their members.
