PASPA Overturned: Casinos Prepare to Welcome Bettors
The U.S. Supreme Court ruling in favor of New Jersey effectively killed the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act (PASPA), the federal law that essentially limited sports betting to one state for the last 25 years.
PASPA was declared unconstitutional in the 7-2 decision, meaning it will be up to states – including New Jersey, which has sought to establish sports gambling for years – to decide whether to allow its residents to bet on sports.
How Soon Could States Offer Sanctioned Sports Betting?
With PASPA stricken down, states now can establish their own regulated sports betting.
Many are expected to move quickly to establish sports betting to increase their respective assets. New Jersey is among 17 states that has passed or have bills making their way through state legislature to legalize sports betting upon PASPA’s appeal.
How Can Casinos and Sports Books Benefit from the PASPA repeal?
With odds in favor of repeal for months, many of these affected states had already begun preparing for the profits, jobs, and tax revenue this shift would generate.
Casinos and race and sports books have partnered with architects and audiovisual experiential designers to create engaging sports betting environments.
