Many factors have led to the growth of regulated sports betting, including state-by-state legalization and an upsurge in consumer interest for this practice. Furthermore, women and multicultural consumers have taken an interest in this industry as it appeals to specific demographics like them; traditional media networks have even shown increased support by expanding content coverage of this form of wagering.

Micro-betting (gambling on short-duration events within sporting events) presents sports betting businesses with an unprecedented opportunity to customize and tailor betting offerings directly to each customer in real-time. Other entertainment and leisure industries have long worked toward this concept; therefore sports betting businesses must adapt or risk losing market share as consumers shift funds away from generic offerings toward tailored offerings.

One key contributor to the growth of the regulated sports betting industry is an increasingly positive relationship between teams, leagues and betting companies. While in years past many pro sports teams and leagues had strong reservations or outright antipathy towards working with betting operators, today most pro sports teams and leagues actively seek partnerships in order to maximize revenue potential and exposure.

As companies have come to recognize, offering comprehensive products/services/experiences can drive customer acquisition/retention more effectively than relying on heavy advertising blitzes alone.

As the regulated sports betting industry evolves, it is vital that both sides work collaboratively in order to protect the integrity of sport without gambling undermining its integrity. With recent US regulatory expansion providing both groups an avenue through which they can form long-term and mutually beneficial relationships.
