Online Gaming on Massachusetts Radar

Massachusetts has become the latest state in the US to be linked with a potential move to legalise online gaming after State Treasurer Deborah Goldberg pledged to introduce legislation.

According to the Sun Chronicle newspaper, Goldberg said the legislation would help to shore up the state’s lottery market, which is worth almost $1 billion (€943.7 million).

However, Goldberg said her efforts would be separate to a state-backed study into online casinos, with the Special Commission on Online Gaming, Fantasy Sports Gaming and Daily Fantasy Sports having until August this year to make a recommendation as to how the state should approach slots and table games.
