Bill would make it legal in Iowa to bet on esports


Radio Iowa: A bill eligible for debate this week in the Iowa Senate would legalize wagering on esports. Betting on video game competitions among multiple players is legal today in Nevada and New Jersey. During a Senate subcommittee hearing on the bill, Susan Daeman, a lobbyist for the Ameristar Casino in Council Bluffs, said esports are “hugely popular so it’s already happening out there and they’re already betting on it, so I view this kind of like sports wagering. This allows the state to regulate it, so we make sure that people who are of ages that shouldn’t be doing it are not doing it.”
