Sports Betting USA – A Journey To the Betting Legalization
Sports betting has had a harsh time in the USA in the past, but recently the things are starting to improve quite a bit. There were so many fellow Americans who searched the way to place bets on their favourite sports teams but the law was always one step ahead. Luckily for all those sports lovers, sports betting started to rise the moment the federal ban on sports betting was crushed down by Supreme Court.
It’s been more than a year since the event and step by step and state by state the US is slowly getting full into the sports betting world, either physical or online.
USA Sports Betting – Legal or Not Legal?
So far, there are several states where sports betting is fully legal while others have already passed the legislation or stand for keeping betting illegal; at least for now. New Jersey is the state that has fought for sports betting legalization and the one that has led to the reversal of the federal ban. So it’s only obvious that in New Jersey, the players can legally bet on sports either in physical places such as land-based sportsbooks and casinos or online.
Currently, among states that allow sports betting are also; Indiana Arkansas, Delaware, Iowa, Michigan, Nevada, New Hampshire, Oregon, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, and West Virginia. Apart from Alaska, Florida, Idaho, Nebraska, Utah, Wisconsin, Wyoming where sports betting is still not legal, the rest of the states have already passed legislation that could make betting legal in the days to come.
Just until recently betting in the USA was only possible via offshore online betting sites and casinos or perhaps shady illegal bookies. But now, dozens of states have signed the bill making sports betting legal and many others are soon to follow. This completely changed and is still changing the sports betting market.
As a result, land-based sportsbooks and online sites are booming across states who legalized betting leaving the players with more and more options to bet on their favourite team and enjoy the sports to the fullest.
