Updated Sports Betting Legislation Tracker for the USA

*Since the federal ban was lifted in 2018, gambling has been on the rise in the USA. The following resource is available for reference for organizations and others concerned about the legalization of sports betting, and how it may increase instances of gambling disorder in their communities.

When the U.S. Supreme Court lifted the federal ban on sports gambling in 2018, the floodgates opened wide. Brick and mortar casinos, sports fantasy apps, and other operators were quick to expand their operations to make online sports betting a part of their offering. That said, the lift on the federal ban was just that – federal. The decision to legalize and regulate sports betting now resides with each individual U.S. state. Some quickly agreed to permit regulated sports betting, while it took others more time to deliberate. Others are in active legislation, while some remain staunch opponents. Regardless, the map of U.S. states that now allow sports gambling has grown to include more for, than against. The former is expected to grow further in the months to come.

Below is a map of every U.S. state, with indicators of where sports betting is either i) live and legal ii) legal but not yet operational iii) active in legislation iv) inactive in legislation, and v) in dead legislation.
