Nevada legalized sports gambling in 1949 alongside live and off-track horse gambling. It had been the first nation to govern sports betting, which had previously functioned under organized crime syndicates. It was the only state to do so until recently.
Congress passed the skilled and Amateur Sports Protection Act (PASPA) in 1992, which prohibited future state expansion of sports betting. Nevada was grandfathered in, so it was essentially handed a legal US monopoly on single-game wagering.
States eventually started to challenge that national ban, however, spearheaded by New Jersey lawmakers and Gov. Chris Christie. Beginning with voter approval in 2011, NJ attempted to pass legislation that would have legalized sports betting at casinos and racetracks. Sports leagues — the NBA, NCAA, NFL, NHL, and MLB — filed suit against the state to block the attempts, however, citing a breach of PASPA.
The ensuing legal battle escalated all the way into the US Supreme Court, eventually reaching a settlement on May 14, 2018. A majority of the nine-member court ruled that PASPA commandeers states in breach of the Tenth Amendment, hitting the ban from the novels.
Because of this, Nevada’s US monopoly on sports betting has seen its last days. Eight other states offer you a vast selection of legal sports bets.
