Nebraskans are gearing up for Super Bowl Sunday, and many are considering placing bets on the big game. However, in order to do so legally in the state, individuals must visit a brick-and-mortar facility and interact with a casino teller or use a machine. Ho-Chunk Inc. leaders have noted that one of the primary requests they receive is for a mobile sports betting option, and they are actively exploring this possibility.
Currently, Ho-Chunk Inc. is gathering feedback from hundreds of Nebraskans through a poll as they consider the potential of working on a ballot initiative that may go to voters in November. Lance Morgan, president of Ho-Chunk Inc., emphasized the importance of taking into account the opinions of the state’s residents, as it is crucial for politicians to align with the desires of the people.
War Horse has formed partnerships with major mobile sports betting companies such as Draft Kings, Fan Duel, and Bet MGM. While it remains uncertain whether War Horse will pursue expanded sports betting through the legislature or a ballot initiative, more information on their poll is expected to be released in the coming week.
