What is being said?
Berman: “When you’re one of the largest sources of tax revenue, land-based casinos get shut down… everybody suffers – literally everybody suffers. Online casinos are an opportunity for everybody to recapture some of the value and equally important for the casino operators and I don’t want to understate this.
“The ability to have another touchpoint with their customers when they physically can’t come to their casino, that’s value in itself. There are the revenue imperatives, there are the ongoing qualms with customers who can’t come and visit casinos on the floor, all of those reasons kind of land to why again we are thankful that there is a larger adoption.”
“Just look at how regulation is playing out. There was obviously a higher level of comfort and interest for sports-versus-casino right now. We strongly believe that the states focusing on sports right now will inevitably add casinos, probably once their communities becomes comfortable with the operation in its totality.”
