If Senate Bill 190 gets voted favourably upon it could mean California would be cashing in on the multi-million sports betting industry. If the law passes then Californians could bet on most sports events except for college sports. The state's Problem Gambling office has issued a warning stating that sports betting is already a problem with its resients. According to them, 25% of gamblers also place sports bets: "There have been studies nation wide that when new legalized gambling is introduced into an area that problem gambling does go up for a period of time" says Terri Sue Canele. She works at the State office of Problem Gambling. If the bill passes, sports bettors would have to be at least 21 years old and they would have to place the wagers in person and in cash only. In return the state would get a juicy 7.5% of the total profits generated.
