After a little research I found that there were casinos in only 30 US states.

Per google...

In the United States of America, it is illegal to operate a betting scheme, except in Nevada, Oregon, Delaware, and Montana. In many European nations, bookmaking (the profession of accepting sports wagers) is regulated but not criminalized.

Actually, there are no casinos in Arkansas. Its not legal here yet. We do however have two racetracks. The nearest casinos here are just across state lines in Oklahoma and Missouri.

Here in Illinois there are slot machines EVERYWHERE. They are all over bars, gas stations, golf courses, and restaurants. Plus lot of them don't have anyone checking ID's.. There is a gas station close to where I work where you can play slots and drink $1 beers while you are playing.

As someone who has worked in the casino business....you won’t see sports betting in something like Disc golf and the reason is too much risk and no reward.....all it takes is someone with inside knowledge that the house does not have (not difficult in a fringe sport like Disc golf) and the house is opened up to far more risk than they would ever be willing to undertake. As far as the reward.....even DGCR has to admit that for comparison purposes no one at all would wagor on the sport. You can’t even get people to watch it let alone pay for it and you expect them to gamble on it? Yes yes a few thousand people may watch online but I shouldn’t have to point out how tiny of a number that is.

Not to mention, there isn't that much $$$ riding on these tournaments for the players. They could potentially make a lot more by gambling on the outcome, than winning the tournament.

That’s all part of the inside information....player A decided to throw the match etc. etc.

Nitpicking here - but wouldn't you want to bet on him at the Las Vegas Challenge NT, not Memorial?
