The Myanmar Times - - Sport -

A DAY be­fore New Jersey’s gover­nor makes his state’s first le­gal wager on a sport­ing event, sports bet­ting will be the main topic at a ma­jor gam­bling in­dus­try con­fer­ence in At­lantic City.

The East Coast Gam­ing Congress on Wed­nes­day will dis­cuss where sports bet­ting stands and what might be next now that New Jersey has won a US Supreme Court case clear­ing the way for all 50 states to le­gal­ize it if they choose.

Demo­cratic Gover­nor Phil Mur­phy plans to make the first le­gal bet Thurs­day morn­ing at Mon­mouth Park race­track in Ocean­port. The state’s casi­nos are wait­ing for guid­ance from state gam­bling reg­u­la­tors as to when they can be­gin tak­ing sports bets.-AP
