Oneida Casino Launches Legal Sports Wagering in Wisconsin

Legal sports betting is underway for the first time ever in Wisconsin, with the first wagers placed on Tuesday at the Oneida Casino in Green Bay. Alma Webster placed the first legal wager at the tribe’s leading casino close to the Green Bay Austin Straubel International Airport, according to reports by WFRV-TV. Webster chose to bet on an NFL game between the New Orleans Saints and the Dallas Cowboys, which will take place on Thursday at the Caesars Superdome. The Saints are 4.5-point underdogs.

Webster and Sandra Brehmer have been given the moniker the Oneida “Bingo Queens,” credited with introducing a popular bingo game in the state’s pre-casino 1970s.

Webster said it was “awesome to see that we’ve come this far.” Additionally, Webster stated it was great to be able “to employ as many of our own people as we possibly can.” The tribe employs approximately 2,000 people.

Sports Betting Options

Players at the casino are allowed to bet on professional sports, including Wisconsin’s Green Bay Packers, Milwaukee Brewers, and Milwaukee Bucks. The Bucks are the defending NBA champions and have star player Giannis Antetokounmpo.

Betting is also permitted on college sports, though not on in-state college teams, which includes the Big 10’s University of Wisconsin Badgers.

Sports betting has launched at the tribe’s casino due to a gaming compact amendment this summer with the state. Democratic Gov. Tony Evers and Oneida Chairman Tehassi Hill signed the amendment at the Oneida Casino.

Sports wagering was slated to begin in time for the beginning of the NFL season in September but was delayed by problems with equipment delivery.

Milwaukee Casino Launch Sports Betting

Nine other tribal nations run casinos in the Badger State but have not implemented sports betting. According to news released from the Green Bay Press Gazette, Potawatomi officials have claimed they will seek a compact with the state to introduce and implement sports wagering at the tribe’s Milwaukee casino.

The tribe said that they “look forward to bringing sports betting to Milwaukee in the future.” Among the states with a legal sports betting industry, three border Wisconsin. Those states are Illinois, Iowa, and Michigan.
