“How do you keep people safe? Do you think it’s possible?” Tur asked

“Well, absolutely,” Goodman answered, The mayor then rattled off a list of previous epidemics that did not close Vegas without using any context or expressing any knowledge as to why those should compare to the extreme contagion the coronavirus has proven to be.

“We’ve survived the West Nile and SARS, bird flu, E. coli, the swine flu, the Zika virus,” Goodman said.

The Mayor pushed the theory that "everybody is a carrier".

Goodman said, ”Assume everybody is a carrier. And then you start from an even slate. And tell the people what to do. And let the businesses open and competition will destroy that business if, in fact, they become evident that they have disease, they’re closed down. It’s that simple.”

Thomas Allen, the gaming analyst at Morgan Stanley said: “We believe the impact of COVID-19 could spur more states to legalize online casino and sports betting.”

Data suggests that his thesis is right. Gambling companies have suffered damage because of the pandemic but iGaming has helped them set off some of the losses.

The online gaming revenue for New Jersey increased to$64.8 million, with a 65.6% rise on a year-on-year basis last month. Pennsylvania, which has been offering iGaming since last year, saw its revenue go up to $24.3 million in March.
