Sportsbooks By State
Live and Legal Sports Betting
In May 2018, the U.S. Supreme Court struck down the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act (PASPA), a decades-old, federal law that prevented states other than Nevada from allowing legal, regulated, single-game wagers on both collegiate and professional sports. This federal prohibition inadvertently created a massive illegal market – along with myriad, associated public policy problems. The Supreme Court’s 7-2 decision was a win for millions of Americans who seek to participate in sports wagering in a safe, legal, and regulated manner. States can now set their own policies to legalize and regulate sports betting in an effective manner that protects consumers and creates tax benefits for local communities. In less than three years, 30 states and Washington, D.C. have joined Nevada in legalizing sports betting.
