Similarly to Indiana, Iowa was able to pass its sports betting legislation in May of However, they were able to get their operations online slightly early in August of Kansas had a promising first step when it came to sports betting legalization when the Senate passed a bill in February of that would allow in-person betting at their state-owned casinos, as well as pave the way for mobile sports betting. It looks more and more likely that a new bill will have to be voted on during the season by both the House and Senate.
Kentucky tried extremely hard in to get sports betting legalized. An extremely promising bill was drafted by the Licensing, Occupations, and Administrative Regulations Committee, a legislation committee; however, it died on the floor in April. The committee looks to go back strong in or with quite a few Reps and Senators in favor of legalized sports betting. A bill has been passed and will go to voters in November on whether to legalize sports wagering or not. Currently, the bill would not automatically legalize mobile betting; however, legislation could feasibly be pushed to allow for it.
For now, it would legalize physical sportsbooks to casinos and racetracks. Unfortunately for those who would like to bet on sports in Maine, Governor Janet Mills vetoed a sports betting bill in Another bill will not likely hit the floor until The bill that was proposed did in fact include mobile betting. Sportsbetting will be on the ballot as Question 2 for Marylanders this November.
DraftKings and other major sportsbooks have launched campaigns in favor of the proposition. The bill is set up to allow licensing to race tracks and casinos; however, legislators intend to allow mobile app sites such as Draftkings sportsbook to partner with the casinos and offer mobile betting. There is quite the fight going on for the legalization of sports betting in Massachusetts.
The House has passed multiple bills now with overwhelming support for legalized sports wagering that includes mobile and brick-and-mortar; however, the Senate continues to refuse any kind of sports gambling. There is still time in for this to change, due to Massachusetts legislation seasons, but for now, it looks unlikely. Michigan was able to legalize sports betting in December of The law that was signed into effect by Governor Gretch Whitmer allows for betting on a myriad of sports and includes college betting.
March 11th, was the launch date; however, mobile betting is launching early Minnesota sports betting has yet to really get off the ground. There have been quite a few bills introduced into the Minnesota Senate; however, nothing has even hit the floor yet. One of the main obstacles in the Native American tribes lobbying, and their concern over allowing sports wagering in the state. They feel that it would disrupt the gaming industry they currently run in the state.
Mississippi was one of the earliest players to legalize sports betting. However, similar to Arkansas, there is currently no mobile betting. There have been a couple of attempts but the farthest that we have gotten would be allowing people to use mobile-apps on casino property.
While there were tons of legislation offered in in an attempt to get sports wagering passed, nothing came through. The pandemic was a major cause for this and many experts see as the year that Missouri finally gets the legalization of sports betting on the table. There have been loads of disagreement on if to allow mobile betting, and whether to limit a sports betting bill to casinos or include the Missouri Lottery Commission. These will be points of contention in Montana legalized sports betting, including mobile gambling in May of The launch of sports betting happened in March of with Sports Bet Montana.
Currently, sports betting is operational under the Montana Lottery, acting as a monopoly. Mobile betting is also limited to within certain distances of retail sports betting outlets. Sports betting in Nebraska has failed to even get a bill on the floor so far.
In , despite multiple attempts, a bill was not even able to get past the committee stage. It is not looking promising for Nebraska residents who would like to wager on sports. It seems that Iowa legalizing sports gambling has failed to cause any sense of urgency by legislators in Nebraska as they lose potential tax revenue to their bordering state.
Nevada is the original place to bet on sports. Currently, Nevada is the hotbed for physical and mobile sports betting. Despite the low population, due to tourism, the state has consistently produced hundreds of millions in revenue. New Hampshire passed legislation to allow for sports wagering in July of New Hampshire has decided to go with a one operator setup. New Hampshire partnered with DraftKings Sportsbook and for the foreseeable future and they will be the only Sportsbook for New Hampshire.
Fortunately for residents, this deal emphasizes mobile betting, so as long as you are anywhere in New Hampshire you can use the app. Soon after the decision, they took the lead in the new wave of sports betting. They have attracted every major sportsbook, and it certainly has to do with their openness to mobile sports betting.
They have led the way when it comes to online sports gambling. Now they are one of the flourishing sports betting locations in the country. New Mexico probably has the most obscure laws when it comes to this list. Tribal Casinos in New Mexico began taking sports wagers in However, there is no legislation allowing for legal sports betting, there just happens to also be no laws stating that it is illegal.
Currently, New Mexico does not seem to have a plan to widen or restrict betting. New York legalized sport betting on Jan 28th of and launched operations on July 17th of the same year. Currently, upstate casinos are the only place you can go to bet on sports. Mobile sports gambling has had many attempts at passing through the house; however, the latest attempts have all felt short. New York has a huge untapped market with online gambling currently illegal in the state, and it seems only a matter of time before the votes will be there to make them legal.
Currently, only Native American tribal casinos are legally allowed to offer sports wagering. Since then there have not been any attempts, in terms of legislation, when it comes to expanding sports gambling to the online and mobile market. The Cherokee tribe is the only group that legally is allowed to operate gambling operations in North Carolina. This makes legislation extremely tricky and it does not look promising for expanded and mobile betting in the near future. However, even the Cherokee tribe is struggling to get things done as they still are awaiting a final green light to launch their Caesars Sportsbook.
North Dakota is one of the quietest states when it comes to sports betting news. Not a single bill was submitted, even to a committee, that had to do with sports betting in the state. There is little in the way of news or support from lawmakers. The last bit we have gotten was from when an attempt was made to legalize sports wagering for charitable gaming locations. The bill failed rather quickly and nothing has poked its head in terms of legislation since.
Ohio talks have ramped up this year when it comes to sports betting. The House and Senate have met during the second half of to find compromises when it comes to tax rates, licensing, etc. The last bill to hit the committee was HB This bill is going to need major revisions, but talks are a good step.
Things are looking promising for Ohio; however, I think the first third of is a realistic date for bills to hit the floor. Governor Kevin Sitt attempted to offer Native American casinos compacts and authorized sports gambling in However, the Supreme Court of Oklahoma State ruled that the governor had overstepped his boundaries.
They claim legislation needs to be written before the governor can just partake in negotiations. Basically, Oklahoma is going to have to go the route of every other state, through the state House and Senate. Currently, there is no timeline as no bills have been proposed. The new ruling allowed for gambling to be expanded to single-game bets.
However, Oregon has gone the single-player route only allowing the Oregon Lottery to control all sports betting. The Scoreboard sports betting app, which launched in October , after legislation was signed on August 27th of that year, is the one place you can bet on sports online in Oregon.
Currently, there is one tribal sportsbook open, which launched in September of Pennsylvania passed legal sports betting, including mobile betting on November 16, They would start to let sportsbooks go live in May of , as they began to test the product. Pennsylvania now operates at full capacity with several physical and online sportsbooks for all your wager needs. SugarHouse was the lucky sportsbook app to launch first; however, several competitors have teamed up with tracks and casinos in the following months, including DraftKings.
On November 26, , Rhode Island legalized sports gambling within the state. However, the initial language of the legislation did not leave room for mobile and online sports wagers. In early the House and Senate expanded on the law to include online and mobile sports gambling, which was a huge step in the right direction.
Originally in September of , you needed to register in person for mobile betting; however, finally, the process has moved completely online. Following a failed bill in the earlier days of , South Carolina legislators have failed to bring up any kind of bill to do with sports betting in the state. Even in the first attempt at some kind of commercial gaming for sports wagers, nothing in the bill hinted at legalizing online wagering.
It does not look like South Carolina is anywhere close to legalized sports betting in the near future. A bill was passed in March of this year to allow voters in South Dakota to decide if sports betting should be legalized and regulated by the state. If the proposition passes it will allow the legislature to set the rules in the season. If everything goes perfectly we could see sports betting legalized in South Dakota and launched by August of An important thing to note is that South Dakota will be only allowing mobile betting in casinos.
Tennessee passed legislation on April 20th of to legalize sports gambling. Going against the grain Tennessee will only be offering online sports betting in their state. There will be no physical locations to go to bet. The first wave of apps will launch on November 1st, It has taken some time for the regulatory bodies to figure out all the rules and restrictions they would like to put into place.
However, it does make sense as this will really be the first of its kind as an online-only betting state. Several online sportsbooks will surely be looking to get in on the action in the next wave of approval. Texas legislators in the Senate offered an extremely detailed bill in the first half of ; however, the bill never was voted on and has since faded away. Unfortunately, since then there has been no solid attempt at getting sports betting on another piece of legislation.
Texas has a massive opportunity to unleash a monstrous revenue stream for the state by legalizing sports gambling. However, for now, the hope is just to see some kind of idea pushed from the State lawmakers for Utah has no gambling of any kind in the state. Due to the States deep ties with the Church, specifically the Mormon religion, it is highly unlikely that the state legislator overturns any kind of gambling.
It will take a massive culture shift over many years for Utah to legalize gambling. While Vermont currently has no timeline or bill in place to legalize sports betting, there has been some good news. In early a Senate bill was proposed to create a Study Committee for sports betting. These kinds of committees are created to develop and understand a certain topic of law and usually end up leading to legislation down the line.
Covid has delayed the bill to create said the committee, but there is hope for it in the latter half of Virginia legalized sports betting, including online sportsbooks, on July 1st, Since then there have been many steps for the Virginia Lottery, the body overseeing the legalization process, having to approve regulations and licensing formats.
Sportsbooks will be looking to team up with one of the 5 casino operators in the state to launch their online sports betting. However, those who do not team up will still have the opportunity to launch their app, they will just need separate approval from the Virginia Lottery Committee. The application process for both begian on Oct 15th of On March 25th of sports betting became legalized in the State of Washington. However, it is currently limited to only tribal casinos, and it can only take place on their property.
This bill has been a bit of a catch for those hoping for online betting and expanded sports wagers. While it is nice to finally have some way to bet on sports in Washington, the bill is so restrictive due to tribal lobbying that many would have waited longer to get a more comprehensive and expansive piece of legislation through. Sports gambling was legalized for West Virginia during March West Virginia does offer mobile and physical betting, though oddly enough, only three sportsbooks are currently in play.
DraftKings, FanDuel, and BetMGM have all teamed up with a casino to have physical locations, as well as offering online betting apps to play on. There is no current timeline for sports betting in the state since there has yet to be an attempt at legalization. The hope is as more states legalize sports betting through we will begin to see rumblings in the State legislature for Wisconsin, and start to get an idea at where their heads are at.
A bill that would have legalized sports betting in Wyoming failed on the house floor during March of this year. The vote was lost right before the pandemic hit and killed any chance of legalization in However, the good news is that the bill did focus on mobile and online gambling. Since Wyoming has basically no casinos, or betting facilities it would only make sense to focus on the mobile side of sports betting.

Being new to the field of sports betting can be overwhelming. There are so many different sports to bet on and different ways to bet on those sports. Here we will provide you with a quick overview of the most popular ways to bet, as well as a couple of quick strategies that are often employed when wagering on sports.
Single Game Bets: Single game bets are the most common ways to wager on sports. All in all, the UIGEA is the poster child for ineffective legislation to address nonexistent problems. Indeed, there is some debate about the origin of Bitcoin itself, with many analysts claiming that the catalysts for its creation were the strict sports betting laws in the United States.
While this received some notable support in the legislature after its initial proposal in co-sponsored by Republican Senator Lindsey Graham and Utah representative Jason Chaffetz , the bill gained no support and never advanced. The necessity for RAWA, in effect, at least temporarily obviated when the DOJ, in , reversed course, stating that the original Wire Act did indeed apply to all common forms of gambling.
This, it seems, has deprioritized the issue, albeit a DOJ statement is not nearly as binding as an official law and, as shown, can be reversed at any time. Lobbyist and casino magnate Sheldon Adelson was the main driving force behind RAWA, as online gambling threatens his land-based casino interests. Kennedy at the behest of his brother Robert F.
Sold to the public as a means to stop the proliferation of mafia-related numbers rackets across state borders, the real impetus for the very first of the US sports betting laws was to stop sports gambling and underground lotteries from competing with state-sanctioned lotteries. Naturally, the states could not abide competition in this arena, as their own lotteries provided huge amounts of income to fund their programs and schemes.
Indeed, semaphore is even outlawed! Naturally, with the advent of the Internet, this new communications form, traveling over wires, was also covered by the Wire Act, as is wireless wagering in our modern times. The only real effect of the Wire Act now, however, is that it prevents residents in one state from picking up the phone or logging onto the Internet to place a sports bet in another state.
This is called geo-fencing, and even the casino and sports betting apps in Nevada are bound by GPS to only allow those physically in the state to place wagers. There is one particular sports betting law that is in the works, although it has not been officially filed as of yet. Back in September of , US Senators Chuck Schumer and Mitt Romney began working on a form of legislation with the goal to create federal standards or guidelines for states who plan to regulate sports betting in the future.
Currently, in the US, sports betting is handled on a state by state basis, making the rules vary drastically from one state to another. The proposed bill would make a unified sports betting set of rules that any state who regulates sports betting would then follow. Schumer initially tried to create a similar sports betting law earlier in the year but was ultimately a waste as the bill went nowhere. This newer proposed bill has more potential going forward, however.
The likeliest of answers is no. Sports betting will always be something that Americans participate in. To ban it would only be hurting the country and the revenue it gains from the industry.
While wagering on sports has long been an American tradition, many folks have been under the impression that the activity is largely against the law. No longer does Nevada primarily Las Vegas have a monopoly on legal sports betting in the country and states are finally free to set up their own betting rules and regulations. Many already have. Despite these positive developments, there are still federal laws on the book regarding sports wagering.
Both are limited in their application to gambling operators physically located within the United States, so bettors are still able to freely gamble despite those laws. As sports betting continues to become a more widely accepted in American culture, these laws will undoubtedly evolve, and they will likely eventually be repealed. Although no American laws prevent you from gambling, it would still benefit you to learn about them. Information is power, after all. The rest of that action was either going underground or being sent to offshore sportsbooks which, despite PASPA and other US anti-gambling laws, were and are able to operate legally, as they are based overseas and outside of US jurisdiction.
Naturally, PASPA has been something of a massive financial boondoggle for the US, and now that the law is overturned, there is hope that much of that action being sent overseas can be recovered and kept in the US economy. Good riddance to bad rubbish! Like most federal sports betting laws, the UIGEA only applies to businesses and not the individuals placing bets.
The law is further neutered by the advent of Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies, which allow bettors to fund their accounts and receive payouts without ever going through a banking service on either end. All in all, the UIGEA is the poster child for ineffective legislation to address nonexistent problems.
Indeed, there is some debate about the origin of Bitcoin itself, with many analysts claiming that the catalysts for its creation were the strict sports betting laws in the United States. While this received some notable support in the legislature after its initial proposal in co-sponsored by Republican Senator Lindsey Graham and Utah representative Jason Chaffetz , the bill gained no support and never advanced.
The necessity for RAWA, in effect, at least temporarily obviated when the DOJ, in , reversed course, stating that the original Wire Act did indeed apply to all common forms of gambling. This, it seems, has deprioritized the issue, albeit a DOJ statement is not nearly as binding as an official law and, as shown, can be reversed at any time.

Sold to the public as a means to stop the proliferation of mafia-related numbers rackets across state borders, the real impetus for the very first of the US sports betting laws was to stop sports gambling and underground lotteries from competing with state-sanctioned lotteries.
Naturally, the states could not abide competition in this arena, as their own lotteries provided huge amounts of income to fund their programs and schemes. Republican Gov. Chris Sununu supports the bill, but it is still waiting for his signature. New Jersey sports betting launched in after being signed into law in June.
It is one of the largest markets in the country. Sportsbooks exist at casinos, tracks, and online via mobile apps. While sports betting is not actually authorized in New Mexico, two casinos have sportsbooks. The tribes are operating under the belief that the sports betting is a 'Class III' game. The Code of Regulations Title 25 section A constitutional change to add up to seven private casinos within the state was approved by voters in The state also passed a law to add sports betting if the federal government were to lift its ban.
Once the ban was lifted, New York moved ahead with these plans. These guidelines include rules and regulations for licensing, opening, and operating facilities. As for mobile betting, any progress is currently stalled until the next legislative session begins. Sports betting officially became legal in North Carolina on July 26, The law allows the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians to operate retail sportsbooks at two casinos in the Appalachian Mountains. The law does not allow for mobile betting.
The state's launch date for a sportsbook is yet to be announced. However, the industry was not regulated. After the Supreme Court lifted the ban, the Oregon Lottery announced that they would need no new legislation to reintroduce sports betting.
There is no set launch date, but the state plans to have mobile and retail operations prior to the NFL season, according to The Oregonian. Mobile betting is planned to be introduced first, followed by retail locations. Pennsylvania was one of the first states to pass a law authorizing sports betting. Online sports betting is also legalized. Sports betting was officially launched in November The Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board required all sportsbooks to successfully launch before being able to partake in online betting.
Rhode Island legalized sports betting in , but that didn't include mobile betting. It had previously been approved by voters but was formally authorized via the state budget in In March , lawmakers expanded the legislation to include online and mobile betting. No launch date has been set. Sports betting became legal in Tennessee on April 30, While Gov. Bill Lee, did not sign the bill because he does not believe in sports gambling, he allowed it to become a law.
BetLucky Sportsbook was the state's mobile betting app, but the app went offline in early March, along with Mardi Gras Casino and Wheeling Island Casino being suspended. DraftKings was supposed to launch in the state in June , but the federal Wire Act has delayed its launch. Insider logo The word "Insider". Close icon Two crossed lines that form an 'X'.

On July 26, , Governor Roy Cooper signed into a law a bill to "allow sports and horse race wagering on tribal lands," with such betting designated as a 'Class III' gaming activity under the state compact.
