Jeremy McDowell, lead writer

Jeremy McDowell is a lead writer for MatrixVision. He broke into covering the legal gambling industry in 2015 while PASPA still existed and the only reason anyone knew anything about the Wire Act of 1961 was that president made a big deal of it when he was attorney general.

Within a broader scope of gaming, McDowell focuses on reporting on breaking news plus legislation and litigation happening in the industry. He loves to read hundreds of pages of a gambling bill or lawsuit so his audience doesn’t have to.

Prior to moving into covering gambling, McDowell covered the business and legal aspects of sports for publications sites.
