The state regulator has posted a ‘notice of intended action’, placing extra requirements on sportsbook operators, with a specific focus on account sharing and underage wagering.

The amendments, however, will not be immediate in effect, but are subject to a public comment and hearing period which closes on Tuesday 10 October, 2023.

Under Section 13.2(4) Public Notice, the amended rules read as follows:

“Advance deposit wagering operators shall prominently display the following information on any interface that accepts wagers.”
