Since the Supreme Court struck down the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act (PASPA), the federal law banning sports betting, in 2018, 30 states and Washington DC now offer some form of sports betting. Of these, 21 states and DC offer both in-person (retail) and online gambling; two states only offer online betting; and in eight states bets can only be placed in person, usually at a casino or racetrack.

Additionally, three other states have legalized sports betting but have yet to launch in-person or online platforms.

A 34th state, Florida, briefly allowed sports betting, but that was discontinued and is now in limbo.
