*** UPDATED x1 *** Report: Internet gaming out

Wednesday, Apr 24, 2013

* The Daily Racing Form reports that Arlington International has come to an agreement with the Illinois Thoroughbred Horsemen’s Association on a new contract. The most interesting aspect of the report

Also helping move negotiations forward, multiple sources reported, was an agreement by Illinois state lawmakers to drop a controversial provision from a gaming-expansion bill expected to pass out of a Senate committee and go before the full Senate for a vote in coming weeks. To vocal protests from the ITHA and other Illinois horsemen’s groups, the gaming bill was amended this spring to permit tracks to operate online casinos without using profits to fund purses. The online gaming provision, sources say, is expected to be dropped entirely from the bill.

The tracks hate sharing money with horsemen, or with anybody else, for that matter. Dealing with those guys has always been the hardest part of any gaming expansion proposal.

So when the I-Gaming stuff was added to the latest bill, you just knew it would cause an explosion, even though the boat owners really, REALLY wanted in on the game. Plus, the governor opposes the entire provision, so it’s probably best that it be dumped.

*** UPDATE *** The Senate President’s office says he intends to file the I-Gaming legislation on a separate bill.

    Finally something constructive being done! Now lets get the gambling bill passed senators and representatives and governor so we may get some revenue coming into this state! I’m tired of seeing revenue just coming in from our taxes!

    Uh, the revenue from the casinos will come from, well, taxes.

    Yes, let’s take out the part of the bill were adults play a skill game in the comfort of there own homes to appease. … jockeys??? Lot of wasted tax dollars. Ipoker should get its own bill away from typical “casino games”

    Poker is a game of skill money is just the way to keep score.

    ===Ipoker should get its own bill away from typical “casino games”===
    My guess is the igaming was put into the regular gaming bill since that has already passed a couple times and they would be jumping on the train that was expected to pass again. Expect it to be put into it’s own bill where it can be debated seperatly. It will be interesting to see what kind of support it gets.

    OK, but when will Advance Deposit Wagering (ADW) be legal again in Illinois? The Kentucky Derby is coming up on May 4.

    I strongly endorse this also:

    “OK, but when will Advance Deposit Wagering (ADW) be legal again in Illinois? The Kentucky Derby is coming up on May 4.”

    Needs to happen next week to make the derby. Something tells me it won’t pass both chambers, get signed by the gov and have the Racing Board approve licenses by next Friday. Better plan on going to the track or OTB

    good idea. worst of gambling….the addicts can blow all their money at home, no economic benefit for meals, drinks, all the other entertainment related benefits to having a casino.

    Now get rid of the Chicago casino too (hey, I work there, it will trash up a world class town. Then pass a bill and move on.
