Is sports betting legal in my state?
Sports betting legalization has been years in the making and many states are still working their way through new laws to allow you bet on football safely and securely. Every day, there is betting news from state governments and new sportsbook operators announcing new deals, new places to bet, mobile registration and more. NFP updates these legal developments and reviews the sportsbooks doing business in each state (check the map below to find news on your state).
We also take a historical look at the Wire Act of 1961 and PASPA (the Bradley Act) of 1992 which had effectively prohibited sports wagering, except for Nevada and a few states with small sports lotteries.
