Last week, the US Department of the Interior approved an update to the Wisconsin contract
Last week, the US Department of the Interior finally gave its approval to the updated gaming contract that regulates tribal gaming offerings in the state of Wisconsin, paving the way for legal sports betting there.
In early July, the Oneida Nation of Wisconsin and Governor Tony Evers announced a deal that will allow the tribe to open sports betting at their properties, giving Badger State punters hope they could place bets on the. next NFL season before it ends.
This is a pleasant surprise for a state that is dragging its feet when it comes to legal sports betting, but given that players in Wisconsin have already invested their money in sports betting available online in the vicinity of Iowa. and Illinois and offshore, it’s no wonder that state leaders began to move toward regulating this lucrative market.
Part of this regulation involves keeping all bets strictly on native property.
Compact allows sports betting on Oneida Nation lands only
One downside to this updated contract is that it only allows sports betting on the Oneida Nation property, bad news for big brands like DraftKings, FanDuel, Caesars, Barstool and PointsBet.
But for Wisconsin punters, at least now, they will be able to place sports bets at Oneida gaming facilities using the Oneida Casino sportsbook, which will be accessible through kiosks and wickets and possibly through a mobile app that can be accessed. used in casinos.
This includes the main airport casino near Green Bay Austin Straubel International Airport, where a temporary sportsbook is being built near its sports bar, with sportsbook’s third-party operating partner to be announced. in a close future.
Except nothing can move forward there until all the physical parts of the operation get there, and right now there’s an inventory issue that’s blocking the launch.
“Out of Stock Component” Delays Sportsbook Launch in Wisconsin
As is the case with any new venture, success depends on a multitude of pieces brought together in a timely manner, but in the case of the new bookmaker set up on Oneida’s property, a missing piece of physical equipment is missing. has not yet been delivered.
This is according to Louise Cornelius, Managing Director of Oneida Casino Gaming, who said in an email:
A shortage of components delays the launch.
Once Main Street Casino Sports Bets have received their operating systems and equipment, America’s Dairyland sports bettors can begin placing bets on the NFL, NBA, NHL, MLB, MLS and more. on Big Ten, Big East and other out-of-state college events. as well as on major rewards programs such as the Oscars (they would be one of the first sportsbook in the country to do so).
If all goes according to plan, expect regulated sports betting on Wisconsin’s Oneida Nation property to launch before the end of 2021, just in time to catch the most popular part of the next NFL season. , the playoffs and the Super Bowl.
