American Sports Betting

A 1992 federal law limited sports betting to Nevada, Oregon, Delaware and Montana. New Jersey announced that it was seeking to legalize betting on the outcomes of football, basketball and other games in fall 2012 and brought a federal case to reverse the federal ban.

In May 2018, the Supreme Court, in a 6-3 ruling, struck down the 1992 ban, clearing the way for all states to authorize sports betting if they so choose. As of January 2024, 38 states, plus the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico, had launched legalized sports betting. In New Mexico, some tribes offer sports betting under an existing Class III gaming compact.
