They would allow sports betting at tribal casinos and online wagering. If passed, the propositions would also make the California Department of Justice Bureau of Gambling Control a legal regulator.
This means that licensed gambling sites can ensure that games are fair and offer resources to bettors. For example, they can provide educational guides on problem gaming and self-exclusion tools for a specified period of time. If a betting site is found to be breaking the law, it can be fined. Licensed gambling operators also ensure that bets are honored.
