SBOBET ออนไลน์ – Arkansas Sports Betting a Possibility • This Week in Gambling


Arkansas Sports BettingA constitutional amendment that would authorize Arkansas sports betting at four casinos is being considered in the state, but it looks as if New York will miss regulating sports wagering until next year.

The Secretary of State of Arkansas has confirmed that the initiative will feature on the November 6 general election ballot, despite Governor Asa Hutchinson having declared his opposition to the effort.

Should the motion pass, the state Racing Commission would be able to issue casino licenses for Arkansas sports betting to applicants in Jefferson County and Pope County, as well as Southland Racing Corp. in West Memphis and Oaklawn Jockey Club in Hot Springs.

Current state law only permits electronic casinos at Oaklawn Park and at the Southland greyhound track in West Memphis, according to the Gaming Today website.

Leslie Bellamy elections director in the secretary of state’s office, said that the measure, which will be marked as Issue 4, is possible after sponsors turned in 99,988 valid signatures of registered voters. Amendments require a minimum of 84,859 signatures to qualify for the ballot.
