Texans: We’re starting our bets

A new poll shows that Texans support the idea of land-based casinos and digital sports betting. The Texas Hispanic Policy Foundation found that 56 percent of those surveyed supported casinos and 47 percent supported sports betting, which included 1,600 “likely” Texas voters. The only issue that those surveyed are slightly against is buying sports books directly from professional sports stadiums. 토토사이트

The poll was released at a time when the Texas Destination Alliance began rallying support. The alliance, supported by the Las Vegas Sands, claims Texans spend $5 billion annually on “out-of-state entertainment.”
