Now that Donald Trump is the President-elect and will be taking over the White House on January 20, 2017, many experts in the sports betting industry believe that there is a good chance Trump will be a big proponent of legalized sports betting.
According to R Street Institute which is a public policy think tank in D.C., Trump has a large history of gambling which could translate into his backing of legalized sports betting on a federal level.
As a supporter of gambling as seen by his many casino ventures, Trump is definitively not opposed to gambling as a business and this will be a way for him to improve the Trump economy era.
In the world of online gambling, they are two sides to every issue whenever they come up. Since the advent of online sports betting and casino gambling, they have been numerous gambling companies that have stolen players’ money and numerous players that have found ways to steal from gambling companies.
In the early 1990’s the majority of online sportsbooks were located offshore which made it difficult for a player to have any kind of arbitration in case of a dispute. In most cases, of a legitimate complaint from the player who encountered a bad sportsbook, he would lose his money and there was nothing he could do about it.
Thus rose the creation of online sportsbooks and casinos watch dogs. As time went by, the sportsbook watchdog industry took a dive as the advertising money started to flow and they became biased in settling disputes.
The merger of these two companies will create a near monopoly that will control 90 percent of Australia’s gambling revenue which is in excess of $5 billion. The combined market value of both companies is worth around $8.6 billion.

Shareholders of Tatts will receive 0.8 shares plus 42.5 cents for each of their share which will be at a 20 percent premium along with a $500 million share buyback once the merger is complete in 2017.
