그만큼 Arkansas casinos are already preparing for a positive outcome. The CMO of Saracen Casino Resort in Pine Bluff, Carlton Saffa, said that they will have their app ready for Superbowl betting if the committee’s decision goes the way they expect. With only one hurdle left, Saffa says that he’s been asked numerous times when will the app go live.

Betting Allowed only on Casino Premises at the Moment

At the moment, sports betting is legal but only inside the casinos. This is an issue for many people living in the state who wish to place their wagers. For example, bettors from northwest Arkansas have to drive 3 hours just to get to the spot where they can bet legally. Mobile and online betting will allow them to place their wagers from the comfort of their own homes.

Mobile Betting In The US

It’s still unclear whether the major national players in the mobile betting industry will offer their services in Arkansas. The major hurdle is the fact that the regulations call for more than half of betting revenue to remain in the state. It remains to be seen if major online gambling sites, such as Pointsbet, FanDuel 또는 DraftKings will find interest to join the betting market in Arkansas.

Public Input

The Racing Commission posted the proposed rules online to allow the public to provide their input on the matter. In 30 days, they have received more than 1000 comments on the proposal. Hardin said that they have never before seen that amount of feedback from the members other public. It just goes to show that the people of Arkansas are passionate about the issue and willing to get engaged in the decision process.

Besides those supporting the legalization of online sports betting, there was also some opposition. One of the most vociferous opponents is Jerry Cox, the executive director of Family Council. This conservative group, based in Little Rock, is opposed to making gambling legal in Arkansas. Cox himself says, there’s little they can do about it. According to him, regular citizens complain much more as the Arkansas Racing Commission is not an elected body.
