Legislation Of Sports Online Gambling In The US
Since the groundbreaking Supreme Court ruling in favor of legalizing sports betting in the state of New Jersey, the movement towards legalizing sports betting worldwide has exploded. Currently the states where it is legal to wager on sports include Delaware, Nevada, Mississippi, West Virginia, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Arkansas, New York, and New Jersey. Even though this is just a handful, it is only the beginning of a landslide of legal sports wagering across the United States. Thanks to the U.S. Supreme Court lifting the federal ban on sports wagering, each state now has the individual ability to legalize sports betting as they so please. Since this ruling, a plethora of sports betting bills have been put in place with the hopes of granting legality to their residents. States such as Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Montana, Tennessee, and New Hampshire all moved to legalize sports betting over the past year. Those six weren’t the only ones working to allow their residents access to sports betting. Certain tribes located in New Mexico are currently offering sports betting, and the Oregon lottery will begin to open up sports wagering to their customers as well.
Other states such as Maine and North Carolina have had their bills passed and are currently awaiting further action to finalize the legalization of sports betting. Within the next year, as many as 38 different states could offer you some form of legal online sports betting.
