History of Sports Betting In The USA

In order to better grasp where gambling laws and gambling legislation in the U.S. is going, it’s best to understand from where we’ve come. The U.S. has a long history of gambling and sports betting, despite the fact that sports betting has often flouted gambling regulations and anti-gambling laws. In a nutshell, the U.S. has witnessed a long tug-of-war between gambling laws, and people who want to enjoy gambling in various forms, including sports betting.

When organized crime took over the market in the mid-20th century, filling the void created by the absence of legalized and regulated U.S. sportsbooks, Congress acted by passing gambling legislation aimed at stamping out the spread of sports betting.

But now once again the pendulum has swung back in favor of legalized sports betting, because the American appetite for it remains as voracious as ever, and attitudes have shifted in favor of just letting U.S. states establish their own gaming legislation — without the federal government’s intervention. We’ll take a look at other forms of betting in the U.S., such as lotteries and casino games, which form part of the fabric of gambling laws in the U.S. So let’s start at the beginning.
