Wisconsin gamblers may soon have more opportunities to wager on sports, after State Governor Tony Evers’ administration announced the amendment its gaming compact with the St. Croix Chippewa to allowing betting on sports and other events at tribal casinos, on tribal land and on land held in trust for the tribe.

The St. Croix Tribal Council approved the amendment last November 30th. The US Department of the Interior still must sign off on the change, but the tribe already has started building a sportsbook facility at its Turtle Lake Casino.

Last July, the Evers administration amended its compact with the Oneida Nation to allow sports wagers at its facilities, legalising sports gambling in Wisconsin for the first time.
