Pressure is mounting on Georgia lawmakers to legalize sports betting in the next legislative cycle.
Representatives of Entain Foundation U.S., part of FanDuel’s’s parent company Entain Plc, met with state lawmakers in Atlanta on Tuesday to discuss a path to legalization of Georgia sports betting next year. The topic of gaming has been broached in Congress in the last few years but has failed to materialize into anything concrete.
However, there is internal motivation to get the changes done soon. Georgia is the eighth-most-populated state and the fourth-highest of states without legal sports betting.
