Where Is Sports Betting Legal in the USA?

November 18, 2019

After the Supreme Court’s landmark ruling in May 2018, the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act of 1992, which limited sports betting in all but a few states, was rescinded, allowing states to legalize sports betting on the internal level.

Since then, as many as 13 states have opened sportsbooks, while seven have legalized the gambling activity but are yet to introduce sports betting operations to their residents.

We provide you with a breakdown of the states which have embraced legal sports wagering.
