  industry was in its “Wild West” phase, with sportsbooks rising to prominence, then falling just as rapidly. Many bettors were hurt during a string of highly publicized sportsbook collapses, like Aces Gold and Millennium. Meanwhile, the books continued to aggressively advertise to the US clientele, drawing the ire of federal regulatory agencies.

But despite his lack of enthusiasm for sports betting, the end result from a repeal of the UIGEA will be of enormous benefit to offshore sports bettors, creating a much easier system for the free flow of money to and from the sportsbooks. Any bill that works for the benefit of gamblers in general is certain to help sports bettors, which is why Frank’s bill offers a rare real chance at genuine reform from the federal level..."
