Dover, Delaware, Jan. 09, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Sports betting and internet gaming will be the hottest gaming topics in legislatures across the country this year, and perhaps in the halls of Congress, according to the 2018 National Legislative Preview published by Fantini Research.

Should the US Supreme Court strike down the federal ban on sports betting, it is likely that some states will combine efforts to get both sports betting and iGaming, Fantini’s Public Policy Review Editor Laura Briggs writes in the Preview.

Other major issues Briggs expects to be addressed around the country include:

• Land-based casino expansion
• Potential proliferation of slot routes
• Continued state-by-state push for daily fantasy sports
• State lotteries allowing internet sales

These issues are examined in detail for every state in the National Legislative Preview.

An Executive Summary of the Preview is available free of charge upon request.

The full 2018 National Legislative Preview is available for just $299 and includes a free one-month subscription to Fantini’s Public Policy Review, which covers legislation in all 50 states and Congress as well as regulatory activity in every gaming state. Subscribers also receive free password-protected access to a live legislative tracker.
