Please check back for information on the Fall 2021 Sports Betting Conference.


Wednesday, May 19, 2021

Virtual Interactive Conference

Sports betting expansion across the country has taken off in the wake of a 2018 Supreme Court case that lifted a federal freeze on states offering the gaming activity. Since the ban was lifted, more than 20 states have legalized the activity and more than 35 states have introduced legislation to offer sports betting. While sports betting remains prohibited in Oklahoma, there has been a growing level of interest in the possibility of offering the product in the future. This session is designed to provide an overview of the industry and discussion of current trends, as well as provide insight and the opportunity to ask questions to regulators from around the country.
