Sports betting in the USA
Since 1992 sports betting has been illegal in the United States except in the States of Delaware, Nevada, Oregon and Montana. These states were able to maintain legalized sports betting as they had already had it legalized before the US placed the ban.
In 2014 the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act of 1992 was challenged by New Jersey and they won when on May 14th, 2018 the Supreme Court ruled that “the federal ban on state-sanctioned sports betting is unconstitutional”. The case was decided in favor of New Jersey as the Supreme Court ruling lifts the federal ban on sports betting.
Expect to see New Jersey sports betting sites start to go live over the next year or so.
