States with Legal Online Sports Betting

With the spread of legal sports betting, several states are moving quickly to legalize online and mobile sports betting. A handful of states currently offer legal online sports betting, while a few others have introduced legislation to legalize the activity in the near future. For more info, see all states in our full guide.

Mobile betting apps

As an increasing number of sports betting operators across the nation ramp up operations and capitalize on the repeal of PASPA, more sports betting apps are being rolled out in states with legal sports betting. Every sports betting app will vary slightly, as a result of differences in laws and regulations between states, but all give bettors the chance to place sports wagers using a mobile device.

For instance, while New Jersey residents can bet on a mobile device from anywhere within state borders, Mississippi legislation states that must be on casino property to place bets using mobile devices. Check out our sports betting app guide for a quick rundown on what to look for before you begin using a mobile betting app.

Legal Sports Betting FAQs

Is it legal to bet on sports in the US?

Yes, in some states. The repeal of the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act of 1992 (PASPA) lifted the federal ban on sports betting. This means it is now up to each individual US state to decide whether to legalize sports betting.
