Great posting! I have been looking for information on online poker. This is really helpful information for me. Keep up the great work.


From now on, it is up to each American state to decide to open sports betting on its territory. Given the financial manna that this could represent, it is highly likely that a very large majority will lift this ban.

The long legal battle between Murphy's case and the NCAA (a long judicial history that began in 1992) is now over. And New Jersey won it. The Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act, the name of the law that had prevailed since 1992 and prohibited states from offering the opportunity to bet on sports, was therefore declared contrary to the US Constitution. In the next 12 months, many online betting sites are expected to open their platforms and welcome hundreds of millions of American players.

The regulation of online betting will, therefore, be managed on a case-by-case basis by each of the American states. The states concerned (all but Delaware, Montana, Nevada, and Oregon, 46 in total) will now have to revise their constitutions in order to legalize sports betting on their territory.

New Jersey is the first American states to host players on online betting platforms. It has always been a pioneer in this sector and it was he who triggered the lifting of the ban. In 2013, New Jersey was already the first state to legalize online casinos on its territory.
