Iowa’s legalized sports gambling begins today


ERIC: A BIG CHANGE COMING TODAY
IN THE STATE OF IOWA. WE’RE JUST HOURS AWAY FROM
SPORTS GAMBLING BECOMING LEGAL
IN OUR STATE ALYX:. YEAH, THE BET IS ON. TOMMIE, YOU HAVE A WARNING FROM
THE IOWA RACING AND GAMING
COMMISSION. TOMMIE: THEY SAY IT’S EXCITING
TO HAVE THIS OPPORTUNITY IN
IOWA, BUT ALSO IMPORTANT TO BE
CAREFUL AND NOT GO ALL IN RIGHT
AWAY. ON TOP OF UNDERSTANDING JUST
WHAT YOU’RE WAGERING, THERE ARE
A NUMBER OF CONTROLS AVAILABLE. IOWA CASINOS WILL BE REQUIRED TO
OFFER CUSTOMERS AN OPPORTUNITY
TO SET LIMITS ON THE AMOUNT
MONEY THEY SPEND PER DAY AND THE
AMOUNT OF MONEY THEY DEPOSIT PER
WEEK. THERE’S ALSO CONCERNS FROM
COLLEGES AND PROFESSIONAL SPORTS
LEAGUE
THE WORRY IS THAT ATHLETES MAY
BE CONTACTED BY PEOPLE ASKING
THEM WHO IS HURT OR WHO’S NOT PLAYING IN A GAME. THAT’S INFORMATION GAMBLERS
COULD USE TO GIVE THEMSELVES AN
EDGE. CASINOS WILL HAVE AN EYE OUT FOR
THIS, AND WILL REPORT ANY SORT
OF SUSPICIOUS BETTING PATTERNS.>>FOR THOSE FOLKS THAT ARE
INTERESTED IN MAYBE TAKING
ADVANTAGE OF AN ATHLETE THAT
THEY MAY KNOW, JUST BE WARNED
THAT WE ARE MONITORING THAT AND
HOPE TO TRY TO ELIMINATE THOSE TYPES OF OPPORTUNITIES THAT MAY
BE OUT THERE
TOMMIE: THERE WILL BE A NUMBER
OF CASINOS READY AT NOON TODAY
IF YOUR LOCAL CASINO IS NOT
READY TODAY, BE PATIENT. THE COMMISSION BELIEVES MOST
WILL BE READY BY FOOTB
