CGA Backs NHL Entry into Gambling Marketplace
Earlier this week we were greeted with the controversial and momentous news that the National Hockey League has entered Canada’s burgeoning gambling market. Specifically, the league has partnered with giants MGM to share player and league data and open up many more markets for sports betting. The news was greeted with mixed opinions by many from both sides but looks certain to have set a precedent.
Whatever the future holds for sports bettors across Canada, it is clear that things will not be the same. There is a lot that is going to change within the organisation of the game, and we could well see more sports leagues following suit in the process. Sports betting is a huge market, and, as the biggest sports league in America, it seems that the NHL has decided to dip its toes in the water.
