And then what? I'm not buying that this will be a huge negative impact. The more ubiquitous stuff like this, the more the forbidden fruit loses it's appeal. There are slot parlors everywhere these days. If there was a corresponding massive rise in misery I'm sure I would have read about it. When I drove cross country a decade ago, I found myself in bars that had legal, real-deal slot machines. I never saw anyone playing them.Disagree. Not naïve to betting without this, but there are people who wouldn't go to a sports book (often), and wouldn't trust an illegal web site, who will be drawn in this way.
