Sports betting is set for exponential growth in the USA following the Supreme Court’s landmark ruling in May 2019.

The decision to repeal the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act of 1992, also known by the acronym PASPA, ended the prohibition of gambling on sport throughout America.

Nevada always remained an exception to federal law – alongside Delaware, Montana and Oregon, which also had their own explicit state rules and provisions before PASPA came in. Delaware and six other US states have taken the opportunity to legalize betting on sport.

Here, we take a look at those parts of the United States that have introduced sports gambling so far since the ruling. It’s proving particularly popular in areas with an Atlantic Ocean coastline.

New Jersey

Monmouth Park Racetrack is a major sporting venue in ‘The Garden State’ and it hasn’t taken long for sportsbooks and casinos to open in and around this thoroughbred horse racing venue.
