Missouri Betting Ballot Progress, NFL Player Reinstatements

Missouri’s Progress on Legalizing Betting Through Voting Initiatives

In Missouri, a group called “Winning for Missouri Education” is working to make online sports betting legal. They have collected 300,000 signatures and want to reach 325,000 by May 5. They need 180,000 of these signatures to be valid to have their proposal considered for voting in November.

  • Statewide mobile sports betting would be allowed.
  • Professional sports teams in Missouri support the initiative.
  • This bypasses the general assembly, which has failed to legalize online wagering for years.

Missouri does not allow legal betting, but seven states that border it do.

NFL Player Reinstatements

The NFL has let five players who were banned for breaking gambling rules come back to play.

  • Shaka Toney, DE, from Washington Commanders
  • Quintez Cephus, former WR, Detroit Lions
  • CJ Moore, Safety
  • Demetrius Taylor, Defensive Lineman
  • Rashod Berry, former LB, Indianapolis Colts

Isaiah Rodgers from the Philadelphia Eagles was not allowed to return to playing. This happened soon after the NBA stopped Jontay Porter from playing because he told bettors things he shouldn’t have and bet on NBA games himself.

Maine failed to pass a law for internet gambling.

Maine lawmakers did not pass a law that would have allowed the Wabanaki people to run online gambling. The time for making laws is over, and this idea won’t be discussed again. Even with strong support from politician Mattie Daughtry, the plan was not successful.

Lawsuits and Court Cases in Sports Gambling

A class-action lawsuit has been filed against DraftKings in New York because of a promotion that promised bets without risks, which customers claim was misleading regarding the actual money they could get back.

Caesars is being sued for claiming their sports betting ads are “risk-free.” This term is being looked at closely and many companies have stopped using it because more and more places are outlawing it.

Rules for Betting in Sports Groups

The New York State Gaming Commission agrees with the NCAA that betting on college players’ performance should be banned all over the country. They want to stop players from being bothered because of how they play. Already, around 15 places in the US don’t allow this kind of betting.

Mississippi is considering allowing people to bet on sports through the internet.

Mississippi is moving towards having betting on mobile devices across the state after lawmakers sent bill HB 774 to a special group for further discussion. Six lawmakers, including both representatives and senators, have to agree on the bill’s details within the next three weeks, or by May 5, when their meeting period ends.

Additional Gambling Updates to Stay Informed About

  • New York City Council approved zoning changes to support potential downstate casinos.
  • Caesars Entertainment introduced NHL-branded blackjack on online gambling platforms in several states.
  • MegaMillions may increase ticket prices from $2 to $5.
  • The Alabama-Coushatta Tribe has announced plans for a new casino in Texas.
  • Virginia legislation might lead to a Petersburg casino referendum in November.
  • Alabama’s gambling bill is pared down and in conference committee, with a low consensus expectation.

New rules are changing how sports betting and online games work in different states, leading to different results, problems, and legal issues.
