U.S. Sports Betting Update

The American Gaming Association has been publishing a map outlining the status of the legalization of sports betting in the U.S. since the federal ban on wagering was repealed in 2018. The most recent map, as of mid-April 2022, shows sports betting is up and running in 30 states and the District of Columbia. It has been legalized in three other states but is not yet operational. A further 11 states have active legislation currently being considered. Two states—Georgia and Hawaii—had bills introduced but then failed. And four states have seen no legislation introduced at all.
