What Tribal Sports Betting Regulation Looks Like Now

As states continue to legalize sports wagering, more tribes are building out their business models and operational capacity to open sports books or offer mobile wagering. The regulatory structure in a particular state impacts tribes’ sports betting operations in multiple ways: whether and where tribes can offer mobile wagering, what in-state commercial competition tribal operations will face, and to what extent state law and state regulations will apply to a tribe’s sports betting operations.

This free webinar series from the ICGR features original research and commentary from tribal gaming experts and ICGR Distinguished Senior Fellows Kathryn Rand and Steven Light. This discussion will provide an overview of emerging trends and three of the most-prevalent state regulatory approaches to tribal sports wagering on a national level, with state-specific examples and issues arising, and the chance for live Q&A.

Participants can expect to learn:

  • The latest ICGR research on emerging trends in tribal sports wagering
  • The data, categories, and metrics that are useful in identifying emerging regulatory practices in tribal sports betting
  • Three key state regulatory approaches to tribal sports betting
  • State-specific examples of applicable sports betting regulation
  • Lessons learned and questions arising about the outlook of the industry

This free webinar is developed as an extension of the ICGR’s White Paper Series on the Regulation of Tribal Sports Wagering, commissioned by the ICGR to help identify and address the question of how tribally owned and operated sports books are being regulated for key markets in states that have legalized sports wagering.

The original research, white papers, and webinar series are products of the ICGR’s mission to identify emerging trends and best practices for the gaming industry.
