Four New States Expected To Legalize Sports Gambling Quickly After Ruling

Major league executives are taking meetings with bookies

Chris Christie challenged the federal ban, arguing that it violated the Tenth Amendment, which the Supreme Court has said prohibits federal laws that compel states to carry out federal dictates. Christie and state lawmakers, led by former Sen. "States are now free to allow their residents to place mobile sports bets with licensed, trusted companies based in the U.S. and that pay taxes here".

"Our Founders drafted the Tenth Amendment for the objective of limiting the involvement of the federal government in the internal affairs of the states", Attorney General Hill said. New Jersey was unable to pass the law in 1993.

Therefore, New Jersey tried a different tact: It simply repealed its laws barring sports gambling.

National Basketball Association (NBA) Commissioner Adam Silver said the league "remain [s] in favor of a federal framework that would provide a uniform approach to sports gambling in states that choose to permit it", adding that "the integrity of our game remains our highest priority".

All four major US professional sports leagues, the NCAA and the federal government had urged the court to uphold the federal law. I think it's going to be a fun twist on the sports out there right now. We anticipate that sports betting at the Nation will create numerous new job opportunities at each of our casinos.

Las Vegas: After years of having a monopoly on sports betting, such wagers could be available to everyone in the country.

"Murphy meanwhile said he looked forward to formally enacting a law authorizing and regulating sports betting in the very near future".

Monmouth Park operator Dennis Drazin said the Jersey Shore race track could start accepting bets in two weeks, "unless somebody stops us". "They say sunlight is the best disinfectant, and in this case I believe that is certainly true".

By the 1960s, Atlantic City, "once the most fashionable resort of the Atlantic Coast", had fallen on hard times, and casino gambling came to be seen as a way to revitalize the city.

"The rapid rise of the Internet means that sports betting across state lines is now just a click away".

Three justices dissented with at least some of the decision.

"The court wields an ax to cut down [the federal law] instead of using a scalpel to trim the statute", Ginsburg wrote.

Boomtown Casino sits on the water on January 3, 2016 in Biloxi, Mississippi.

What's the NCAA saying about the potential of legalized sports gambling?

The American Gaming Association (AGA) estimates that Americans now illegally wager upwards of $150 billion annually on sports betting. "MA isn't operating under an immediate time constraint, but I would expect the state legislature to move fairly rapidly to at least put this on the drawing board for discussion". DE tried to legalize bets on individual games in 2009, but that ran afoul of the federal law.
