Nearly three years removed from the Supreme Court striking down a 1994 ruling that banned sports betting, it seems as if a new state legalizes sports betting every day. We got a slow start with New Jersey leading the way, but have since added nearly two dozen additional states.

Most recently Colorado legalized both in-person and online sports betting, and your state may be next! As of June 2020, 23 states have legalized sports betting, another 4 have already passed bills, and an additional 18 states have pending sports betting bills.

Just because your state has passed a sports betting bill does not mean that sports betting is available in your state. In some cases there is a pending affective date, in some cases, the startup costs or tax rates were set unrealistically high. Click on your state below to find out where sports betting stands as of today.
