A new era for sports betting in the United States began on May 14, 2018 when the U.S. Supreme Court overturned the federal ban known as the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act, clearing the way for all states to regulate wagering within their borders. By the end of 2018, seven states had joined Nevada in offering regulated sports betting, with many others set to consider their own legislation in the coming months.

GamblingCompliance provides daily intelligence on the policy, regulatory and business trends shaping this major new sports-betting market, which according to our research is projected to reach at least $3.1bn in annual revenue by 2023. Our monthly U.S. Sports Betting Tracker reports also provide the perspective that professionals need to digest fast-moving legislative developments and understand which states are set to regulate sports betting, how and when.
