VegasInsider.com is dedicated to providing you with the latest in sports, sports betting, and the legislative process that makes it happen. A few states were grandfathered in, but 2018 was a watershed moment for sports betting, as the federal law barring states from offering sports betting (PASPA) was overturned.
Now, online sports betting is up to each individual state to vote on, legislate, and eventually build a framework of rules and license requirements around. Our industry experts do the legwork, reading the fine print so you don't have to and giving you the information you need to bet legally and safely.
