The insidious elements in new competing Virginia sports betting bills Matthew Waters, Legal Sports Report · January 14, 2020 at 5:21 am The House of Delegates currently has its pick of two Virginia sports betting bills that call for lottery oversight but have little else in common. Both of the bills allow for mobile VA sports betting. A Virginia gaming study forecasted mobile sports betting would generate nearly $400 million in annual revenue. Both have some downsides. HB 896 calls for use of official league data when the league requests it for in-play betting. HB 911, meanwhile, bans college betting. The bills also authorize the sale of lottery tickets over the internet.
