Gaming consultancy firm Global Market Advisors (GMA) has announced the appointment of sports betting industry veteran John English as Managing Director of its new Sports Betting and Technology division.
English’s appointment coincides with the release of a new GMA white paper titled, “An Examination of Sports Betting in America and Forecast of Revenues by State” which the company says aims to educate readers on the current status of the sports betting market in the US, the process being undertaken to overturn PASPA (the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act of 1992), hurdles the industry will face, political climate and revenue potential of sports betting on a state by state basis.
It also addresses key issues such as lotteries versus land-based gaming as operators, Europe’s influence, positions of professional sports leagues and the reality of existing widespread activities and attractiveness of illegal sports betting. English was a key participant in preparing the paper.
“John is an expert and pioneer in the sports betting industry,” said GMA Managing Partner Steve Gallaway.
“His knowledge and insights are invaluable; a commodity to which very few individuals or companies have access to. John will be a great asset to the GMA team as sports betting continues to evolve globally.”
