In our latest news on sports and sports betting, we are taking a look at Minnesota. Minnesota is surrounded by states such as Iowa, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Wisconsin. All of these states offer sports betting to their residents. Yet those who live in Minnesota have to drive all the way to tribal casinos, or to these states, to gain access to gambling products. So when lawmakers announced pushing for Minnesota sports betting legislation, many in the industry were excited.

Finally, despite previous efforts to introduce sports betting in the state, Minnesota lawmakers will be more proactive in passing a sports betting bill in both the Senate and the House. Surrounded as they are with growing sports betting industries, the state can generate more revenue from sportsbook operators. The potential is large, considering what the sportsbook pay per head industry is pulling in in terms of revenue.

Minnesota Sports Betting Legislation: How Soon Will it Happen?

Despite more efforts to legalize sports betting in the next regular session, it will take months to craft a bill, vote on it, and pass (or fail) it. It could take a year or more before we can actually see sports betting products in the state: from online sportsbooks to sportsbook pph providers, and more.

However, there will be some hurdles that legislators will have to consider. Of course, certain members of society do not want the state to add more gambling options. More importantly, tribal casinos will want to limit gambling and sports betting to within tribal lands. This gives them exclusive access to a healthy sports betting market in the state. However, seeing more betting options, especially through online sportsbooks, will be better for the state.
