Sports Betting Now Legal in USA

Finally, it will be interesting to see whether or not this is favorably going to impact the US justice system, perhaps reducing the number of illicit activities related to betting, with players moving to safer, more enjoyable and reliable, sources of entertainment

While this may sound strange to most people residing outside of the United States, Sports
Betting has been mostly illegal in the US up until this point. People living in Europe have been gambling on their favorite teams and sport event for decades now, with the possibility to do it legally in proper physical facilities or online, thanks to a wide variety of websites offering such possibility.

Online casinos might have actually played a big part in the legalization of betting in the US,
with a non-defined number of people resorting to online gambling through proxies and
localization softwares while actually living in the United States. If you can’t fight them, join
them. That’s something that has become a fairly common trend when it comes to
depenalization or legalization of anything, from recreational substances, to betting, or even
drugs, surprisingly producing positive effects in a number of occasions.

We’re all very familiar with gambling websites and online casinos, where you can do anything from betting on sports events, to playing table games or slots. While safe and working to avoid any sort of malfunction, in accordance to the strict laws they’re required to abide by, it is hard to imagine that all of such websites in the world could possibly detect all of the US users – especially the most digitally prolific ones – who were using proxies in order to get access to legal sports betting.

Apart from this, black market bookies have always been a problem in the US, much like black market moonshiners used to be back in the Prohibition Era, and legalizing sports betting aims to reduce the number of people conducting this kind of shady business, especially considering that such individuals are often associated to bigger criminal organizations, and can be very dangerous to their clients.

It will be interesting to follow the situation, especially with NFL season kicking off, and see
how this shift in American laws and regulations will impact the markets and courtrooms.
After all, as any new business, it is up for grabs, with casinos looking to expand their markets, and new competitors trying to enter the world of sports betting. It will also be interesting to see how this reflects on all the international players offering online betting, and the possibility of some of them entering the US territory.

Finally, it will be interesting to see whether or not this is favorably going to impact the US
justice system, perhaps reducing the number of illicit activities related to betting, with players moving to safer, more enjoyable and reliable, sources of entertainment.
