More and more states are legalizing sports betting, and it can be hard to keep track of where it is legal. Also, legalized gambling doesn’t happen overnight, and there are a lot of steps to take between when a state proposes legalized sports betting, and when players can place their first bets.
To keep all sports bettors informed, FanDuel has created an interactive map of legalized sports betting laws by state. You can find that map by clicking here. By using FanDuel’s interactive map, you can click on any state for the most up-to-date information about its position on sports betting.
Using the FanDuel Sports Betting Map
It’s very easy. For example, if you click on New Jersey and Pennsylvania, you can see that both retail and mobile betting are legal. On the other hand, Delaware shows that mobile betting is not available, but retail betting is. In Illinois, laws have been passed to legalize both mobile and retail betting, but bettors are still waiting for a date to place their first legal sports bets.
The fact is, the state of legalized sports betting across the country is ever-changing, and the map will be your up-to-date source of information. If you’re wondering where your state stands when it comes to sports betting, be sure to check often.
