Sports betting fever in NJ and other states is spreading like never before!
Sports betting has wholly conquered the business landscape in New Jersey after reversing the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act(PASPA) in 2018. Only Nevada and the other three states held the privilege to perform sports betting legally before this declaration. So, players in the remaining states had to depend on proxies, local bookmakers, or offshore gambling operators.
The present context of sports betting in NJ
The states such as Nevada, Delaware, Mississippi, New Jersey, West Virginia, New Mexico, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Arkansas, New York, Iowa, Oregon, and Indiana have now officially legalized sports betting to full-scale including wagers on the outcomes of individual games. The five states namely Tennessee, Montana, Illinois, North Carolina, Washington, DC have already passed the necessary legislation process and are waiting for delivering full-scale sports betting at any time sooner. Anyhow, people are going crazy on sports betting since the repeal of PASPA across the US.
