USA Legal Sportsbetting Tracker

Since the Supreme Court of the United States removed the federal ban on sports betting in 2018, online sports betting has become allowed in the United States. More than half of the country has legalised sports betting, with 15 of these states allowing online sportsbooks to operate.

In 2018, New Jersey became the first state to legalise sports betting, followed by Indiana in 2019. Every year, though, new states are green-lighting online sports betting.

Here’s a simple state-by-state guide to the current legal betting status for each of the fifty US states. Many other U.S states are pending launch or are still going through the various legal procedures involved.
