Details to be worked out on legalized sports betting

PIERRE, S.D. (WNAX) – Besides two high profile marijuana issues, South Dakota voters this month also approved legalizing sports betting, based in Deadwood.

South Dakota Chamber of Commerce and Industry President Dave Owen says there are still a lot of details to be worked out.

Owen says while sports betting may become available statewide, expects the control will be in Deadwood.

The 2021 session of the legislature will have to write the rules for sports betting which becomes effective on July 1.
