"The AGA stands ready to work with all stakeholders - states, tribes, sports leagues, and law enforcement - to create a new regulatory environment that capitalizes on this opportunity to engage fans and boost local economies".

The NCAA and the major professional sports leagues contended that the law was not unconstitutional, because it didn't compel states to do anything; it simply prevented them from making sports betting legal by either operating sports-gambling schemes themselves or authorizing casinos to do so. Both Iowa and Minnesota are proposing legislation that allow sports betting, but it's more than likely that the issue won't be discussed until the next legislative sessions. The money would be given to sports leagues to help them deal with integrity issues that could arise.
Experts said sports gambling is not a huge moneymaker for casinos, in part because of the uncontrolled nature of the gambling.
State Sen. Mark Blasdel, who is on the Gaming Advisory Council that examines and advises on gambling, agreed.
"There is about $150 billion dollars a year in which bets are illegally made on sports betting", Decorah said.
It is a big decision, as a lot of the sports betting was already going on under the table.
The CEO of the American Gaming Association, Geoff Freeeman, praised the decision. The law had allowed states like Nevada to have massive sports books.
