Could sports betting be coming to Oklahoma?

Could sports betting be coming to Oklahoma?

OK (KSWO)- An upcoming US Supreme Court Case could pave the way for sports betting in Oklahoma and most other states.

The High Court will hear the case to overturn the 25-year-old law this Fall. An Oklahoma House member introduced a bill last legislative session to allow it and other Las Vegas-style gaming, but it didn't go very far.

"It's occurring right now in almost every office in America. It would make more sense to do it in a regulated, secure, safe fashion that then would generate revenue for the state without a tax increase."

The American Gaming Association is watching the case very closely. They say sports betting could generate as much as $600-million for the state.
