The tax in question would be 10% but paid by the casinos, not the actual gambler.

According to Bloomberg, recent polls show more voters support sports betting than oppose it, Rep. Alec Garnett (D), sponsor of the bill (H.B. 1327) referring the measure, said Sept. 27. The ballot measure fares even better in polling when its backers clarify the tax will be on casino’s profits, not on individual winnings, he said.

Aside from environmental groups, there is little opposition to the initiative.  Little money is being placed on efforts to prevent passage.
