Legal sports betting news. US sports betting legislation, regulation, bills and votes.
Is betting legal in my state? Except in Nevada, sports betting is not currently legal in any other state unless and until the 1992 federal ban on sports betting — PASPA — gets repealed. Currently, numerous states including New York, Illinois, Missouri and West Virginia are discussing or passing legal sports betting bills in advance of PASPA’s possible repeal in the United States Supreme Court. A decision in New Jersey’s sports betting case Murphy v NCAA is expected by the end of June 2018.
