Expansion of Gambling Wins Big on US Election Night

美国大选夜博彩业大获全胜

The American gambling industry won big on Election Day Tuesday. Three states voted to permit legal sports betting and three others either approved or expanded gambling in casinos. Casinos are businesses that have gambling and other forms of entertainment activities.

美国博彩业在周二的选举日大获全胜。三个州投票同意体育博彩合法化,另外三个州要么投票批准要么扩大赌场的博彩业。赌场是指从事博彩和其他娱乐活动的企业。

Maryland, South Dakota and Louisiana approved betting on sporting events. The ballot results mean that, by the end of 2021, at least 25 states and the District of Columbia could have legal sports betting in place.

马里兰州、南达科他州和路易斯安那州批准在体育赛事上下注博彩。投票结果意味着到2021年底至少有25个州和哥伦比亚特区被允许存在合法的体育博彩。

The development comes less than three years after a U.S. Supreme Court ruling ended a federal ban on sports gambling in most states.

这一进展是自美国最高法院的一项裁决解除了大多数联邦州省体育博彩禁令后不到三年取得的。

“It appears that Americans are becoming increasingly comfortable with legalized gambling,” said David Schwartz. He is a gambling historian with the University of Nevada Las Vegas.

大卫·施瓦茨表示:“美国人民似乎越来越习惯于博彩合法化。”他是内华达大学拉斯维加斯分校的一位博彩历史学家。

The state of Virginia approved casino gambling in four places. People in Nebraska voted to permit the addition of casino games at its horse racing tracks. And Colorado expanded the number and kind of casino games it can offer, along with removing some betting limits.

弗吉尼亚州批准在四个地方开设赌场博彩业务。内布拉斯加州人民投票批准在赛马场增加博彩业务。科罗拉多州增设了赌场游戏的数量和种类,同时取消了一些博彩限制。

In South Dakota, the ballot measure permitted casinos in the town of Deadwood to add in-person sports betting. Deadwood has about 25 casinos. Sports betting will also become legal across much of Louisiana.

在南达科他州,这项投票措施允许戴德伍德镇的赌场增加现场体育博彩。戴德伍德大约有25家赌场。体育博彩也将在路易斯安那州大部分地区合法化。

The American Gaming Association, the casino industry’s main trade group, celebrated the expansion votes. Bill Miller, the organization’s head, said that “as a result of the successful ballot measures” in six states, more Americans will have access to jobs, special tax revenue and safe entertainment choices where they live.

赌场行业最重要的交易组织美国博彩协会庆祝了博彩业被允许扩大的投票。该组织负责人比尔·米勒表示,随着六个州的“投票成功”,更多的美国人将有机会获得工作、特殊税收和安全的娱乐选择。
