Online Sports Betting in the US

online betting

If you live in the US, you can place bets on online sports betting. The only requirements are that you be located within the geofenced footprint of a state’s approved retail outlet. Other states also allow online sports betting, but the laws vary a lot. In Delaware, you must wager at one of the state’s three casinos. In Mississippi, you can only place bets at retail sites. South Dakota and Mississippi only allow in-person wagering, but only at the Deadwood casino.

Several US states have already legalized online horse racing, and individual states are now beginning to legalize additional forms of online betting. In 2011, the Department of Justice issued a legal opinion that concluded that the Wire Act did not apply to online sports betting or other games. However, there are many questions surrounding the future of the industry in the US. For now, it is unclear how much of a legal impact these laws will have on the industry.

While the US has legalized online horse racing, many states have not legalized other types of online gambling. This ban hasn’t prevented sports betting from being legal, but it does make it difficult for players to access the most popular forms of online sports betting. While the US Supreme Court has overruled the 1992 Professional and Amateur Sport Protection Act, the legality of online gambling in the US remains uncertain. As the US becomes increasingly regulated, sports gambling is expected to continue to increase.
