Puerto Rico was devastated almost two years ago by Hurricane Maria and is still struggling with the aftermath. Governor Ricardo Rosselló wants to use legal sports betting, esports and online gaming to help revive the country’s important tourism industry. Rosselló believes that Puerto Rico can become a center for esports by being innovative and creative, and appealing to the younger players. He notes that the tax rate proposed for sports betting will be the lowest in the United States and that his goal isn’t necessarily to produce revenue but to bring jobs and tourists back to Puerto Rico. He spoke with GGB Publisher Roger Gros from his office in San Juan in April.
