Online Sports Betting

The recent ruling by US Supreme Court has cleared the way for states to allow online gaming industry. Online gaming industry includes sports betting, fantasy sports, casino games, as well as, video gaming betting. CNN considers “The 6-3 ruling is a victory for New Jersey and other states who have considered allowing sports gambling as a way to encourage tourism and tax revenue. The NCAA, NFL and the NBA had all backed the federal prohibition.”1

In Nevada alone, where sports betting has been legal, the sports betting industry is estimated to be around $4.5 billion. The overall sports betting industry in US is estimated to be around $150 billion.2
The ever expanding and global sports betting market is expected to grow at a CAGR 8.7% from 2017-2022 representing $125 billion by 2022. Also fueling expected growth is the recent US Supreme Court ruling that struck down a 25-year federal ban on sports betting outside of Nevada, expanding the potential growth and opportunities.
As such Planet Ventures believes that this emerging industry is poised for substantial growth.

In a relatively short period of time following the identification of this massive opportunity, Planet Ventures has identified a very unique opportunity and has made its most significant investment to date. On August 1st, 2018, Planet Ventures announced its investment into VIP Bets Inc. equalling 20% ownership of the company. Read More
