PPA Publishes Sports Betting Survey Results

 PPA Publishes Sports Betting Survey Results

A footnote in the Poker Players Alliance’s announcement last month regarding the change at the Executive Director position was that it would be polling its membership about how they felt about the PPA possibly expanding its scope into sports betting advocacy. The e-mails were sent out the next day and last week, the PPA published the results.

As one would expect, poker players were overwhelmingly in favor of legalizing sports betting. Frankly, it would be hypocritical if they weren’t. And most would support the PPA’s involving in pushing for sports betting’s legalization.

The results of the poll are reprinted below. One important thing to note that the Poker Players Alliance has not indicated whether or not it has made a decision on what it will do regarding sports betting – it simply published the survey results for all to see. One would think, though, that considering the response and considering that the PPA has been adamant that it needs money and needs money quickly, that it will probably decide to get into sports betting advocacy. The PPA sounds like it could use some more members willing to pony up some cash.
