Gambling will become Legal in Texas

There are many states in the Union that do not allow onsite gambling, and Texas is one of those states that has become the most discussed geographical location to allow gambling. Soon to follow will be the allowance of online casinos (even though it is not very difficult to find a casino online and start playing your favorite games.)

Legalized sports betting continued its expansion this year while also factoring into scandals in college athletics and suspensions in the NFL for players who violated the league's gambling policy. Six states either passed legislation to legalize sports wagering or allowed sportsbooks to begin accepting bets. Another state, Florida, relaunched sports betting after a two-year legal battle ended when the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in October in the casinos' favor.

However, two of the nation's most populous states, California and Texas continue to remain on the sidelines. It will happen eventually because the tax revenue is insane. Onsite casinos produce nearly $9 billion a year in revenue, and just imagine what that number would be if gamblers were able to do this from the comfort of their home or on their mobile device.

Gaming measures have slowly picked up support, but a spending wave has yet to deliver a Texas-sized jackpot in a Legislature where resistance to legalizing casinos still runs deep. There has been no bigger obstacle than Republican Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick, who controls the state Senate and wields enormous influence over what bills even come up for a vote. A gambling measure that would have allowed mobile sports betting passed the House last spring but never even got a vote in the Senate.

There are signals that Adelson-led Las Vegas Sands is willing to dig in and wait. Dallas-area media report property records indicate that the casino company purchased around 100 acres of land near the old Texas Stadium site in Irving. In addition, Mark Cuban just sold a majority stake in the Dallas Mavericks to the family who owns the Sands Casinos. Coincidence? More than likely, no... Just bet on it. (You see what I did there?)

Nonetheless, online gambling is very prevalent, and even those living in Texas are able to play all of their favorite games just by going through a few steps. It is the goal of Safe Online Gaming to find the most secure and safest online gambling sites.

There are thousands of sites to play, but it is important to do your research when choosing an online gaming site.
