The Special Commission on Online Gaming, Fantasy Sports Gaming and Daily Fantasy Sports met this week. Legislators agreed that an omnibus approach to the legalization of online gambling is the best option for Massachusetts’ gambling industry.

ccording to Statehouse News, “most commission members who shared their points of view Tuesday indicated that they would favor the omnibus approach,” to iGaming. That included Massachusetts Gaming Commission Chairman Stephen Crosby, Sen. Jennifer Flanagan and a representative of Senate Minority Leader Brice Tarr.

The state’s gaming commission has advocated that a nimble regulatory approach — allowing it to tackle online gambling of all forms — was in the best interest of the state and its casinos moving forward.

A bill to legalize online poker and gambling in the state surfaced earlier this year but hasn’t gained much traction.

Enacting a new law this year was always a longshot, however, while the special commission was meeting. But a positive recommendation on online gambling from the commission would be a step ahead for the prospects of iGaming.
