Prospect of Gambling Coming to A.C. Impacts Staten Island

According to a report filed by Staten Island Live, D.A. Daniel Donovan (above)is not thrilled with the prospect of legal sports betting coming to Atlantic City Casinos. "It could create a new group of gamblers," he cautioned. "People who participate in their [office] Super Bowl pools, may say, 'Wouldn't it be more interesting to put a bet on the game?' Those newly created gamblers may [ultimately] become customers of illegal sports betting" on Staten Island.

Staten Island will feel the impact if Delaware's recent legalization of sports betting survives court challenges, and if efforts succeed to bring similar wagering to Atlantic City casinos, that report further goes on to say.

Of course, gambling has been legal in Atlantic City for the better part of three decades.  It is only sports betting that may be added to the menu.

"State-regulated sports wagering may create more illegal gambling? How is that logical?" asked one gambling analyst.  "But, unfortunately, this is likely just a sample of the kind of logic we'll be matched up against."
