Study finds Petersburg, Richmond could support casinos, separately or together

A study found that a Richmond casino would generate about $300 million and 2,000 jobs. It would also reduce the number of new jobs by about 300. The General Assembly voted in 2020 to legalize casino gambling in five cities, including Richmond. The study estimates that all four casinos would earn about $55 million less if Petersburg were to open a casino. A Petersburg casino also reduces revenue from historical horse racing operations by $46 million. Virginia's state gaming tax revenues would rise from $103.5 million to $115.8 million with a Casino in Petersburg and to to more than $130 million if an additional casino opened in Richmond, but those totals include reduced revenues at the other four.

Niki Kelly: Online gaming is the next frontier for Indiana

Indiana Gaming Commission hired Spectrum Gaming Group to conduct a market analysis on internet casino gambling in Indiana. The Hoosier Lottery Commission sought its own analysis in 2019 but has refused to release it. The study found that of the six states that have both iGaming and lottery, three have enough history to allow for the analysis of i gaming's potential impacts on lottery revenue. None of them have been impacted. Both the Hooher Lotteries and the state’s casinos want the online gaming rights to flow through their current licenses. Legislators need to act in 2023.

Legal online gaming in Indiana would not hurt the state's casino industry. The study was commissioned by the Indiana Gaming Commission and conducted by Spectrum Gaming Group.

Some of the parent companies of Northwest Indiana's four casinos are engaged in i gaming elsewhere. iGamers are mainly in the 21-39 age group. They tend to be more active than online sports wagering participants.

Tamil Nadu cabinet finalizes ordinance to stop online gambling

Tamil Nadu cabinet has passed an ordinance to stop online gambling. The previous AIADMK government tried to pass a law to ban real money gaming, but the Madras High Court struck it down. DMK government promised to introduce another law that would withstand judicial scrutiny. The ordinance will need assent from the governor of Tamil Nadu before it is promulgated. It is likely to use the term "online gaming" because legal victories by the real-money gaming industry have ensured that so-called games of skill are not classified as betting or gambling, forcing legislators to find an alternative term.
