‘Everybody’s attempting to reinvent the wheel’

“I would have believed that people would have viewed the achievements stories and adopted in all those footsteps. But as a substitute, what we have is all people fairly much hoping to reinvent the wheel.”
So which states, specially, are doing sports activities betting appropriate, and which are not?
“Any point out that you do not listen to about at any time, it is almost certainly on the correct route. Your Indianas, your Iowas. New Jersey is a condition you genuinely never listen to far too much about. … The states that have long gone totally off the rails are the ones that are frequently in the information. So, I’ll just issue to my residence condition of Massachusetts as one particular of the even bigger offenders of this. The entire marketplace has talked over this. Gaming regulators are not the most knowledgeable when it arrives to gambling. However, they’re building incredibly moment choices about the industry that are genuinely intricate, and for any of us who have been in the industry for a very little little bit of time, you look at them and you go, why are you even wasting your time on a ‘21+’ advert on this or what is the proper distance from a college or university campus to keep a pregame clearly show, and what style of celebrity can say what issue? Why are we acquiring into this type of minutia when we can just glance at what is functioning and just construct off of that?”
Ruddock is not optimistic about on line on line casino or on the web poker enlargement in 2024 — though he supplied the caveat that no one predicted Rhode Island to legalize iCasino and “there’s always these dark horse states that look out of nowhere.” However, he’s discouraged by the modern research pointing toward on the net on line casino cannibalizing retail profits:
Does on line casino genuinely cannibalize brick-and-mortar on line casino earnings? “I consider persons drop sight of the fact that it really is a doorway that swings both equally ways,” @SteveRuddock points out on the most up-to-date episode of the Gamble On podcast: https://t.co/QI4nEVPmt6 pic.twitter.com/thSZrZCG24
