California’s sports betting proposal lost money

Any of California’s sports betting proposals in yesterday’s 2022 state election would have worked wonders. And like a rare poker hand, Proposals 26 and Proposals 27 were left empty after Golden State residents said no in unison.

Proposition 26, which would have legalized sports betting at Native American casinos and licensed racetracks, failed by a wide margin of 70.4% to 29.6% with 1,585,714 votes and 3,779,247 votes.

The “No. 26” movement issued a statement on the night of the 8th, saying, “California voters strongly rejected the “No. 26” without being deceived by “No. 26.”

“Prop 26 was not just a sports betting measure, but a large expansion of gambling by five wealthy tribes, including poison pills to take away market share from highly regulated card rooms that provide millions of dollars in tax revenue and tens of thousands of jobs for communities. Voters made it clear that Prop 26 was bad for communities, jobs, and California.”

Proposition 27, which would have legalized online and mobile sports betting for adults 21 and older, failed by a larger margin of 83.3 percent to 16.7 percent with 894,945 votes and 4,479,250 votes. 파워볼게임

Those numbers will change with a week left before ballots postmarked on Election Day are counted toward the final tally, but now sports betting in California will have to wait until 2024.
