There is new hope for sports betting in Kentucky. House Bill 137, which would legalize sports betting in Kentucky, passed out of House committee by a 19-0 vote this morning. From here, the bill will go to the Kentucky House of Representatives, and if it passes, to the State Senate. If the Senate passes it, it will go to Governor Andy Beshear, who has already voiced his support.

Online betting at spbobet brings the casino experience with games like judi bola, Judi Online, agen bola, spbo directly to your own home. Even though many are changing their betting to the internet for convenience, you may not want to hop on the internet and down payment your money at any online casino. Almost all online casino offers 100% free sign up with bonus games. Through these bonus games, you can play trials on offered games and win jackpots. The price you won from the bonus games can be used as a token to play for an actual live game.It definitely guarantees fewer distractions and even temptations to play more. Actual casinos are loud and sometimes overcrowded. This means a lot of things can distract you and you might lose your focus in winning your game. Playing Judi online lets you play in the comfort of your home, on your couch with your mobile phone sipping your glass of champagne. It is just as simple as that. The lesser distraction is the more you can keep your head on beating your competitors.

The bill, which you can read here, was proposed by Rep. Adam Koenig and is similar to the one that was discussed last year but never made it to the House floor for a vote. It would allow horse tracks and the Kentucky Motor Speedway to have sports books on site and would also allow online sports betting. Koenig’s original bill prohibited betting on in-state teams, but that restriction has been removed, so people will be allowed to wager on University of Kentucky and University of Louisville games. If passed, it would help create millions in revenue — an estimated $22.5 million — for state pensions.

Now seems like a good time to remind everyone that in the four months Indiana has allowed sports betting, gamblers wagered over $436 million. How much of that do you think came from the Bluegrass State?

    I really don’t care about the horse tracks and race track having it on-site. But I’m super excited about having it online.

    But, doesn’t it go from the House to a Senate committee before going straight to the Senate? I could be wrong on that, and I would love to be wrong. Hopefully this will get passed sooner rather than later.

    And only late about a year and a half out of the gate, for the start.

    I hope it passes could really help with the pension problem. It makes complete sense.

    Should have happened years ago. Steve B said he was for it, but did nothing while he was raping the pension.
