Sports betting is legal in some states, but not everywhere. Some states have banned the practice of sports betting while others are legalizing it. Here are some tips and legal issues to consider before you start placing bets. First, learn about the laws in your state and the sports you want to bet on. Once you know the laws, you can place bets legally.
Legalization of sports betting in a handful of states
Legalization of sports betting has long been a goal of nearly every state in the Union, but so far, only a handful of states have actually passed legislation. These states face many obstacles, including deep-seated political opposition and complicated tribal relationships. To help guide voters, we have created an interactive map that shows which states have legalized sports betting and when they may do so. Maine and Kansas have both legalized sports betting, and Massachusetts is just a signature away from doing so. Several more states are considering legalizing sports betting.
In May 2018, the state of Missouri passed a bill to legalize sports betting. The new compact would authorize mobile and retail sports betting in the state. Florida is the largest state to approve sports betting since the Supreme Court ruling in 2018. However, the state has yet to receive final approval from the federal Department of Interior. If it does, sports betting could be available in late 2021 or early 2022.
