But because of the enterprising actions of the offshore sportsbook industry leaders sports bettors can breathe easy as every type of sports betting lines they seek are just a click away of the mouse at their favorite sportsbook. Offshore sportsbook fans have gotten spoiled since the advent of the Internet technology.
It has never been easier to bet on sports no matter where you location is on the planet and the horror’s of previous sportsbook experiences have been almost erased for good. The offshore sportsbook industry has seemed to have provided the perfect solution to US sports bettor’s previous lack of access to sportsbooks.
The offshore sportsbook industry has also provided tens of thousands of jobs and millions of dollars in tax revenues to host countries as well. But what if the sportsbook industry were allowed to operate on US soil instead of fleeing to far off countries in order to avoid US legal restrictions as offshore sportsbook companies?
It would certainly change the face of the offshore sportsbook industry in a drastic way. And as wild as it sounds it may not be all that far-fetched to think that some time soon the offshore sportsbook companies could be relocating to US soil. The reason for this manifold, but one of the most pressing has to do with the presidential election.
If the Democrats win the presidency, having already won control of the congress, they could push through many new bills and legal reforms, including amending current laws prohibiting the creation of a sportsbooks on US soil, which would persuade many offshore sportsbook operations to set up shop here.
This idea is obviously simple enough, but is it very likely many offshore sportsbook fans might ask? It’s hard to say at this point as no major candidate has really addressed the issue of offshore sportbook operations, which is perhaps a good sign.
In previous years candidates have addressed offshore sportsbook operations, but only in a negative light. Perhaps in this case, no news about the sportsbook industry is good news.
There is no doubt that with the saturation of gambling in popular culture such as poker on TV, and casinos located in every major city, opposition to the offshore sportsbook industry is slowly dying.
