US Sports Betting Tracker (Last Updated May 6th, 2019)

The map below is designed as a US sports betting tracker across each state in the United States. Each state has been bucketed into a unique category: Legal Betting, Recent Betting Bill Passed, Betting Bill Introduced, or No Betting Bill Introduced. Additionally, we will also be tracking key concepts such as whether land-based betting, on-site mobile betting or state-wide mobile betting is available.

Legal Sports Betting States

There are eight unique legal sports betting states in the United States of America. The legal betting states are New Jersey, West Virginia, Rhode Island, Nevada, Pennsylvania, Mississippi, New Mexico and Delaware.

New Jersey launched sports betting in 2018 and its close proximity to New York (where sports betting is not yet legal) quickly lead to it becoming the pre-eminent state in the sports betting space.
