WASHINGTON — The U.S. Supreme Court acted Monday to bust Nevada's monopoly on legal sports betting, allowing more states to get in on the action and reap the tax benefits. The court, in a 6-3 ruling, struck down a federal law that required states to ban gambling on the outcome of sporting events. The Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act was highly unusual: It did not ban sports gambling nationwide as a matter of federal law, but it said the states were not allowed to permit it.


MAGA...MAGA

More freedom is always a good thing. Little betting parlors on the corners, special Kiosks in the malls of America. What could possibly go wrong?

I doubt if the Conservative Christians will be pleased with the ruling by the supreme court.



"Today's decision is a victory for the millions of Americans who seek to bet on sports in a safe and regulated manner," the association said in a statement Monday. "Today's ruling makes it possible for states and sovereign tribal nations to give Americans what they want: An open, transparent and responsible market for sports betting."


Tax revenue for the state to fix the bridges, roads, schools and other infrastructure. And for the savy handicapper $$$.

Damn...

It wasn't too long ago that South Carolina got rid of Video Poker. People don't realize that gambling in any form is ran exclusively by organized crime and they are not in it to lose...

But don't you think, having the states oversee gaming, we will see a decrease in corruption?

The government's nose will be in it to the tune of billions in tax revenue; plus thousands of bean counters paid by the taxpayers to keep the industry fair and balanced and free of corruption.

There will be a yugggeeee government office established with it's own law enforcement agency, lawyers, IT professionals, and bureaucrats.

And we will need new laws to keep everything regulated and new law enforcement officials to keep track of cheaters.

Sports betting won't be just in casinos, it will be everywhere. On line betting parlors will flourish and perhaps they will even allow internet poker and card games betting back. Internet craps and blackjack gaming with real money....yeeeehaawwww

Glad I have a minor in psy/counseling, might open up a little mobile gambling addiction therapy office in my RV.

If you have money this is the time to buy or rent out empty store spaces in the worst neighborhoods in your city to turn them into betting places. You can thank me later...

What about government funded sports?

Since the government now believes it is moral to bet and such then surely we can now bet on the student atholetes.

Every town in the UK has multiple betting shops, two casinos near me, and places with gambling machines are abundant.
It is damaging for people who get addicted, I know lots.
I'm surprised the US government has only just allowed you guys to gamble. Any age limit? It's 18 here.

Depends on how you "gamble".

Those stupid people make it quite easy for others to generate income.

When I'm not working, one of my favorite pastimes is to go to card room at the NA casino and find a holdem table with a bunch of drunk and medicated old geezers.

I live by Amarillo Slims words...."Look around the table, if you can't spot the chumps....it's you!"

That's not true. I can go into great detail if you're actually interested.

I predict that my backasswards state of Texas will be one of the last to legalize sports books. All we have is the lotto and a horse racing industry designed not to grow.

You are correct. Tx, Colo, NM, and Utah....no sports betting.

However if you are into highstakes holdem or omaha, there are back rooms in most barbershops, roadhouse bars, country club golf courses and city halls. Even in Lubbock, buckle of the bible belt!! Wear your hat and boots.

Haha brilliant!
Reminds me of 'lock-ins' we have here in bars and pubs after the licensed drink hours finish, usually 3am. The window shutters come down, the ashtrays come out, and if there was ever a police raid everyone would say it's a private party and drinks were free lol.
Cops ignore it though, it's a British tradition to be fair, a right of passage, took my son to his first when he was 16, they served food so he could legally drink with me during opening hours with a 'meal' (plate of fries), then afterhours at the 'private party' there was no restriction, same as being at a mates house.
