When Sports Betting Became Legal

Check out the timeline and history of legal sports betting in the United States.

New Jersey map
New Jersey Sports Betting
  • Can you bet online? Yes
  • Can you bet in person? Yes

After New Jersey fought the NFL, NBA, NHL, MLB and NCAA for a decade, the Supreme Court in May of 2018 ruled that the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act (PASPA) was unconstitutional, and that N.J. and every other state could legalize sports betting at its discretion. New Jersey quickly legalized and is the most advanced state in its online sports betting offerings as of early 2020. More than 80% of sports bets placed in New Jersey are online.

Indiana map
Indiana Sports Betting
  • Can you bet online? Yes
  • Can you bet in person? Yes

Indiana's sports betting bill was signed into law on May 8, and officially went live on Sept. 1. Mobile betting launched in the state on Oct. 3. By the end of 2019, FanDuel, DraftKings and BetRivers were all operating mobile apps within the state. In the first two full months after launching mobile betting, Indiana averaged a handle of $154.6 million per month.

Pennsylvania map
Pennsylvania Sports Betting
  • Can you bet online? Yes
  • Can you bet in person? Yes

Mobile sports betting officially launched in Pennsylvania in May 2019, but the first wave of sportsbooks weren't fully up and running until November. That didn't keep PA from having a great start to legal sports betting, as the state took in nearly $1.5 billion in wagers last year, the third-largest amount in the country.

West Virginia map
West Virginia Sports Betting
  • Can you bet online? Yes
  • Can you bet in person? Yes

Mobile betting had some initial hiccups in West Virginia, but it's been fully live since August 2019. A third mobile operator, BetMGM, joined incumbents FanDuel and DraftKings early in 2020. West Virginia took in $129.6 million in bets from September to December 2019

Arkansas map
Arkansas Sports Betting
  • Can you bet online? No
  • Can you bet in person? Yes

Legal sports betting in Arkansas officially launched on July 1, 2019, at Oaklawn Racing Casino Resort. Voters approved a gaming expansion bill in November 2019, and Oaklawn was the first casino to be declared legal by the state. Sports betting in Arkansas is all over-the-counter, meaning there’s no mobile wagering whatsoever. A bill popped up in the state legislature that would have legalized full mobile betting in the state, but it hit a snag with the inclusion of integrity fees for leagues.

Delaware map
Delaware Sports Betting
  • Can you bet online? No
  • Can you bet in person? Yes

Delaware was the first legal state after the Supreme Court’s ruling, ahead of New Jersey, which brought the PASPA case to the forefront. But Delaware’s lack of mobile betting and its decision to have the lottery run the show have made it one of the least successful legal betting states.

Illinois map
Illinois Sports Betting
  • Can you bet online? No
  • Can you bet in person? Yes

It took an extended weekend session by the Illinois legislature in early June 2019, but the state surprised some by getting its sports betting bill to the finish line this year. When Gov. J.B. Pritzker signed the bill into law on June 28, many expected the state would be up and running in time for football, but that did not materialize, as the state ended up launching on March 9, 2020, just ahead of March Madness. Illinois' bill is unique in this it gives its brick-and-mortar operations -- casinos, racetracks and sports venues -- an 18-month head start over online-only operators like FanDuel and DraftKings. The licensed brick-and-mortar operations can offer mobile betting right away, but there's a little more friction in the process, as in-person registration will be required for 18 months. Under the bill, sports stadiums such as Wrigley Field (Cubs), the United Center (Bulls), Soldier Field (Bears) and Guaranteed Rate Field (White Sox) could apply to have betting kiosks.

Iowa map
Iowa Sports Betting
  • Can you bet online? Yes
  • Can you bet in person? Yes

Iowa's sports betting law was signed on May 13, 2019, and the state started accepting bets on Aug. 15. The one wrinkle with mobile betting: You’ll have to register in person before being able to bet on your phone. That provision will remain in place until Jan. 1, 2021.

Michigan map
Michigan Sports Betting
  • Can you bet online? No
  • Can you bet in person? Yes

On Dec. 11, 2019 a bill passed that legalized sports betting and fantasy sports, and nine days later, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer signed it into law. The legislation calls for full mobile wagering within the state. Michigan launched in-person wagering at the MGM Grand Detroit just ahead of March Madness 2020 (March 11, to be exact). Mobile betting is expected to follow, but likely not until 2021.

Mississippi map
Mississippi Sports Betting
  • Can you bet online? Yes
  • Can you bet in person? Yes

Mississippi, which legalized betting in 2018, has mobile wagering, but it's very restrictive, only permitted while inside a casino.

Montana map
Montana Sports Betting
  • Can you bet online? No
  • Can you bet in person? Yes

Montana officially legalized betting on May 3, 2019. The state lottery will oversee everything. Bettors will be able to place a wager inside licensed bars and restaurants via kiosks or on their phone, but mobile betting will not work outside of those bars and restaurants. The state initially wanted to get up and running for the start of the 2019 NFL season, but as of February 2020, it still had not launched.

Nevada map
Nevada Sports Betting
  • Can you bet online? Yes
  • Can you bet in person? Yes

Nevada, the gold standard of in-person betting, still hasn't quite mastered mobile wagering. It requires bettors to come into a casino to register in person before being able to place bets via the Internet.

New Hampshire map
New Hampshire Sports Betting
  • Can you bet online? Yes
  • Can you bet in person? Yes

New Hampshire Gov. Chris Sununu signed a sports betting bill into law on July 12, 2019 and mobile wagering will officially launch on Dec. 30 with DraftKings making a leap in the state. DraftKings will be the only mobile operator in the state besides the New Hampshire Lottery. Retail sports betting will also be coming, but not until a bit later.

New Mexico map
New Mexico Sports Betting
  • Can you bet online? No
  • Can you bet in person? Yes

New Mexico doesn't have a bill passed, but Native American tribes have interpreted that their sportsbooks are legal under their state tribal gaming compacts.

New York map
New York Sports Betting
  • Can you bet online? No
  • Can you bet in person? Yes

The New York Gaming Commission voted on June 10, 2019, to allow in-person betting in four upstate casinos — Resorts World, Rivers Casino, Tioga Downs and Del Lago — located hundreds of miles away from New York City. Wagering officially launched on July 16, 2019. So while you can now legally bet in person at the four upstate casinos, bettors can hope that 2020 is the year mobile betting comes to the Empire State, though it’s far from a sure thing. On Feb. 11, Assemblyman Gary Pretlow joined his counterpart in the Senate, Joseph Addabbo Jr., in advocating for the inclusion of mobile sports betting within the 2020 NY budget. Gov. Andrew Cuomo's lack of enthusiastic support for doing so is still an issue. A study released in February 2020 estimated that New York is losing $200+ million in revenue by not legalizing online sports betting.

Oregon map
Oregon Sports Betting
  • Can you bet online? Yes
  • Can you bet in person? Yes

No bill passed, but Oregon was one of four states to be grandfathered into legal sports betting prior to the passage of PASPA and on Aug. 27, 2019 it became the 12th state to offer legal sports wagering. Mobile betting, which is run exclusively by the Oregon Lottery, officially launched on Oct. 16 after multiple delays.

Rhode Island map
Rhode Island Sports Betting
  • Can you bet online? Yes
  • Can you bet in person? Yes

Rhode Island has been offering legal sports betting since 2018. The state, which is the only one to allow people to bet at age 18, runs its mobile betting product through the lottery.

Alabama map
Alabama Sports Betting
  • Can you bet online? No
  • Can you bet in person? No

Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey hasn't come out in stark opposition to legalized sports betting, which is a start, but nothing substantial is likely to happen anytime soon. Alabama requires that a law be approved by both the legislature and the voting public.

Alaska map
Alaska Sports Betting
  • Can you bet online? No
  • Can you bet in person? No

Alaska is pretty much nowhere on sports gambling. The 49th state might actually be the 49th to legalize it.

Arizona map
Arizona Sports Betting
  • Can you bet online? No
  • Can you bet in person? No

Lawmakers introduced another sports betting bill in early 2020, marking the second consecutive year of doing so. The legislation calls for the tribes to be permitted to offer sports betting within their 24 casinos in the state and would not allow for mobile betting within the state.

California map
California Sports Betting
  • Can you bet online? No
  • Can you bet in person? No

Legalization in California has two hurdles: It would likely require a change to the state constitution, and all gaming is controlled by tribes. On June 27, we got a surprise: California assemblyman Adam Gray and State Senator Bill Dodd introduced a sports betting bill. The legislation calls for a November 2020 ballot question, but would need two-thirds support from the legislature to be put on the ballot. And while 18 tribes said they would be interested in backing the measure, it still appears to be a longshot.

Colorado map
Colorado Sports Betting
  • Can you bet online? Pending
  • Can you bet in person? Pending

Colorado became the 19th state to legalize sports betting on Wednesday, Nov. 6, as the final votes from Tuesday’s referendum vote were counted. It’s expected the state will have mobile wagering. Several sports betting operators have signed on in Colorado, including BetAmerica, Wynn Resorts and PointsBet, which is establishing a Western headquarters in Denver. It’s expected that the state’s operators, which are controlled by Native American tribes, will begin taking wagers around May 2020.

Connecticut map
Connecticut Sports Betting
  • Can you bet online? No
  • Can you bet in person? No

Connecticut is nearly surrounded by legal sports betting states, and while bills were introduced in 2019, tribal conflicts proved to be too tough to overcome. Connecticut lawmakers are again set to introduce a sports betting bill in February 2020, which would legalize mobile wagering and in-person betting at the two tribal casinos.

District of Columbia map
District of Columbia Sports Betting
  • Can you bet online? Pending
  • Can you bet in person? Pending

The D.C. Council approved a bill in December 2018 that would allow for sports betting. It officially became law in late March 2019. The plan was originally to have physical sportsbooks accepting bets by football season, but those efforts stalled amid controversy. Now, D.C. regulators say betting, including mobile wagering via the D.C. Lottery's app, will be up and running by March 2020.

Florida map
Florida Sports Betting
  • Can you bet online? No
  • Can you bet in person? No

Things looked dead in Florida after voters approved Amendment 3 in 2019, which allows Florida residents to exclusively authorize casino gambling within the state. But sports betting legislation expert Daniel Wallach says that the amendment would not stop the legislature from authorizing sports gambling. Because of that, Wallach says he expects lawmakers to approve sports betting in 2020, without the need for a citizen referendum. To that end, on Nov. 18, 2019, multiple sports betting bills were filed in the Florida legislature.

Georgia map
Georgia Sports Betting
  • Can you bet online? No
  • Can you bet in person? No

Polls in Georgia say that voters are in favor of legalized sports betting. Executives from the Atlanta Falcons, Atlanta Braves, Atlanta Hawks and Atlanta United also came out in support of sports betting in late 2019. On Feb. 20, legislation was filed to allow online sports betting in the state. This proposed bill would NOT require a constitutional amendment, which has been a topic of much debate as the state discusses legalized wagering. Even with the recent developments, it's far from certain Georgia will get legalized wagering any time soon. The state doesn't have casino gaming of any kind.

Hawaii map
Hawaii Sports Betting
  • Can you bet online? No
  • Can you bet in person? No

Hawaii is one of just two states currently without gambling of any kind, so sports betting will not be coming to the state for the foreseeable future.

Idaho map
Idaho Sports Betting
  • Can you bet online? No
  • Can you bet in person? No

State laws as written are currently against gambling, save for horse racing. State doesn’t allow fantasy.

Kansas map
Kansas Sports Betting
  • Can you bet online? No
  • Can you bet in person? No

The Kansas Senate passed a sports betting bill, which would allow for mobile wagering in the state, on Feb. 26, 2020. It will now go to the House, which is working on a sports betting bill of its own and appears to have conflicts with the measure that passed the Senate. State Rep. Don Hineman also told Legal Sports Report that Gov. Laura Kelly will not support the Senate's bill as its currently constructed. Kansas had previously introduced a bill in 2019 that would have called for a steep tax rate and the required use of official league data.

Kentucky map
Kentucky Sports Betting
  • Can you bet online? No
  • Can you bet in person? No

A sports betting bill zoomed through a legislative committee in the Kentucky House in early 2020, but quickly hit a snag as Republican lawmakers called the issue "divisive." Damon Thayer, the majority leader of the Kentucky Senate, said he thinks the bill would pass his chamber if it makes it through the House. The Governor is a big proponent of sports betting legalization, so the biggest hurdle in Kentucky appears to be a divided House.

Louisiana map
Louisiana Sports Betting
  • Can you bet online? No
  • Can you bet in person? No

The Louisiana legislature tried to get some steam behind a sports betting bill in May 2019, but the efforts failed in the House. Not long after, though, the Senate passed a new bill on fantasy sports regulation, which also includes some language around sports betting. That bill went no where. If/when a sports betting bill ever gets passed by lawmakers, each municipality in Louisiana will have to approve of it for wagering to become legal.

Maine map
Maine Sports Betting
  • Can you bet online? No
  • Can you bet in person? No

The Maine legislature voted to pass in-person and mobile sports betting legislation in the summer of 2019 and only needed Gov. Janet Mills’ signature to make it officially legal. But she officially vetoed the bill on Jan. 10, 2020, and a last-ditch effort from the legislature to attempt to overturn her veto failed. Maine is very unlikely to have sports betting in 2020.

Maryland map
Maryland Sports Betting
  • Can you bet online? No
  • Can you bet in person? No

Maryland's legislature officially passed a measure to put a referendum question on November's ballot, giving voters the choice on whether to legalize sports betting in the state. The way the question on the ballot is written -- “Do you favor the expansion of commercial gaming in the State of Maryland to authorize sports and event betting for the primary purpose of raising revenue for education?” -- would appear to give the measure a good shot at passing. If voters approve, Maryland lawmakers would have to then draw up more specifics on how sports betting will be implemented in the state. The Senate had included clear implementation measures in the bill it sent to the House, calling for mobile wagering and in-person betting at the state's existing casinos and racetracks. But those specifics around implementation were stripped out of the bill by the House, saying they rewarded existing entities that lacked any diversity. So if voters do officially legalize sports betting in November, it will likely take many more months for the state to start accepting bets. Set the over/under at the beginning of the 2021 NFL season.

Massachusetts map
Massachusetts Sports Betting
  • Can you bet online? No
  • Can you bet in person? No

Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker has long been pushing for legalized sports betting, and on Feb. 28, state lawmakers took the first step to pushing through a bill that would make in-person and online wagering legal. It still has a long way to go, but it's an optimistic sign for Massachusetts, which legal expert Daniel Wallach predicted would turn legal in 2020. Wallach's reasoning? The state "does not have any unique legal barriers such as tribal compacts or constitutional prohibitions."

Minnesota map
Minnesota Sports Betting
  • Can you bet online? No
  • Can you bet in person? No

The state’s 11 federally recognized tribes do not want expansion of gaming. That’s an issue.

Missouri map
Missouri Sports Betting
  • Can you bet online? No
  • Can you bet in person? No

In March 2020, two separate sports betting bills cleared committee in the House and will now be heard on the House floor. Both of the proposed bills would allow for online and in-person wagering; the key difference between the two is their tax rate and whether they require the use of official league data. Missouri is attempting to keep up with neighboring Iowa and Illinois, which have legalized sports betting, and Kansas, which appears poised to do so in 2020.

Nebraska map
Nebraska Sports Betting
  • Can you bet online? No
  • Can you bet in person? No

Lawmakers in Nebraska have introduced three different bills, but they appear to be a longshot, especially considering the state turned down the right to expand casino gambling at its racetracks years ago.

North Carolina map
North Carolina Sports Betting
  • Can you bet online? No
  • Can you bet in person? Pending

North Carolina wasn’t on our radar in the beginning of 2019, but a bill easily passed the Senate in April 2019, and on July 15, the same bill passed the House with bipartisan support. It officially became law on July 26, when Gov. Roy Cooper graced the bill with his signature, but sports betting will remain restricted to the two tribal casinos for the time being.

North Dakota map
North Dakota Sports Betting
  • Can you bet online? No
  • Can you bet in person? No

Two separate sports betting bills died in the North Dakota legislature in 2019. It's a longshot to see significant movement here in 2020.

Ohio map
Ohio Sports Betting
  • Can you bet online? No
  • Can you bet in person? No

Ohio is surrounded by states that have legalized sports betting (or appear poised to do so in 2020), so it's no surprise that state lawmakers are trying to advance legislation. The issue is that there are two different bills competing with each other -- one in the House, the other in the Senate. Both bills call for mobile wagering but have key differences in the state agency tasked with regulating sports betting.

Oklahoma map
Oklahoma Sports Betting
  • Can you bet online? No
  • Can you bet in person? No

If anything is to happen, it has to go through the tribes. So while we've seen lawmakers express interest in raising sports betting legislation in the past, it will always be harder to get it to the finish line compared to states without tribes.

South Carolina map
South Carolina Sports Betting
  • Can you bet online? No
  • Can you bet in person? No

Several bills have been introduced in the past in South Carolina, but none have gained any traction. This appears to be a longshot to happen any time soon.

South Dakota map
South Dakota Sports Betting
  • Can you bet online? No
  • Can you bet in person? No

South Dakota is one step away legalizing sports betting after both the House and Senate passed a sports betting measure. Now it's up to the state's voters on whether South Dakota will have legal wagering. Two wild cards: Gov. Kristi Noem opposes sports betting expansion, and the tribes in the state will also have to get on board eventually.

Tennessee map
Tennessee Sports Betting
  • Can you bet online? Pending
  • Can you bet in person? Pending

Gov. Bill Lee let a sports-betting bill become law without his signature in late May 2019. Tennessee will be the first legal state to offer online-only wagering, but it's unclear on when that will occur. Rules still haven't been written, but a draft of regulations sparked much debate, as the state proposed capping the amount a bettor could win at 85% of his/her original stake, far lower than industry standard. Such a rule would not only limit the number of operators interested in paying the $750,000 licensing fee, but it would also drastically impact the overall betting handle in the state.

Texas map
Texas Sports Betting
  • Can you bet online? No
  • Can you bet in person? No

Texas lawmakers introduced a sports betting bill in 2019, but it didn't go anywhere. Don't expect that to change anytime soon, as the state still does not have a fantasy sports bill. Texas lawmakers have also shown a hesitancy to support any kind of casino expansion legislation.

Utah map
Utah Sports Betting
  • Can you bet online? No
  • Can you bet in person? No

Sports betting is likely never coming to Utah. It's one of just two states currently without gambling of any kind.

Vermont map
Vermont Sports Betting
  • Can you bet online? No
  • Can you bet in person? No

Early in 2020, Vermont lawmakers filed a mobile-only sports betting bill. The movement, unsurprisingly, comes on the heels of neighboring New Hampshire launching mobile sports betting at the end of 2019. Given a history of previous skepticism in the state surrounding sports betting — and Vermont’s lack of commercial gambling of any kind — don't be surprised if the state falls short of legalization in 2020

Virginia map
Virginia Sports Betting
  • Can you bet online? No
  • Can you bet in person? No

Legal sports betting looks like it will be coming to Virginia after a bill passed the legislature on March 8. It will now go to Gov. Ralph Northam for his signature. Should he sign the bill into law, Virginia would become the 21st state to get legal sports betting. A few details on the legislation: It would allow for mobile and in-person betting. The state's lottery will be in charge of approving licenses for online-only operators. We could see up to 18 online sportsbooks, which is similar to the set up we've seen have success in New Jersey. And you will not be allowed to bet on Virginia college sports team under the bill. While there's still a lot to be hammered out, don't be shocked if Virginia is up and running before the start of the 2020 NFL season.

Washington map
Washington Sports Betting
  • Can you bet online? No
  • Can you bet in person? Pending

Washington has some of the least gambling-friendly laws in the country, but in early 2020, lawmakers in both the House and Senate successfully passed a bill that would legalize sports betting in the state's tribal casinos. And on March 25, 2020, Gov. Jay Inslee signed the bill into law, making Washington the 21st state to officially legalize sports betting and the first to do so in 2020. The tribes lobbied for the bill, as it restricts mobile wagering to within their casinos. Bettors will not be allowed to wager on games involving in-state collegiate teams as part of this bill.

Wisconsin map
Wisconsin Sports Betting
  • Can you bet online? No
  • Can you bet in person? No

Legalizing sports betting in Wisconsin would require a change to the state constitution. The process for doing so: Passage in the Senate, passage in the Assembly and voter approval in a statewide referendum. And even if all that occurs, the tribes in the state, which operate 26 casinos, loom as the ultimate wild card.

Wyoming map
Wyoming Sports Betting
  • Can you bet online? No
  • Can you bet in person? No

There are only three licensed casinos in the entire state, and while multiple bills were proposed in February 2020, Wyoming isn't on the short list of states to pass legalization anytime soon.
