There are still an on-going debate in many states wether they are to legalize online sports betting. Among the States in the US that have not yet passed a bill to open for sports betting, the list is still long and include states such as: Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Kansas, Kentucky, Maine, Massachusetts, Missouri, North Dakota, Ohio, Texas, Vermont, Alaska, Alabama, California and so forth.
Of course, there is some opposition to the legalization of US sports betting on moral grounds. For instance, the Coalition to Stop Internet Gambling praised Governor Rick Snyder’s decision back in 2018, when Michigan decided to legalize online sports betting in their state.
Countering this argument is the huge illegal betting industry that already exists in the US. Underground betting attracts corruption and scandal, and naturally, those that get caught up in it have no recourse to justice. Several laws such as PASPA, UIGEA and The Federal Wire Act have in the past tried to prevent online gambling but the illegal US online sports betting market is blossoming with an expected worth of $150 billion according to the American Sports Betting Coalition.
To prevent gambling addiction and debts, many modern online casinos and online sports betting sites provide tools that limit or prevent spending and participation. All reputable sites are regulated by relevant gambling authorities and adhere to strict codes of responsibility. Customer experience is all part of the detailed reviews available and forthcoming on US Sportsbonus.
There are a wide selection of sports betting sites in the but a limited number of US Sportsbooks that hold a license to offer legal sports betting online. As more states open up for sports betting the licensed US Sportsbooks are expected to take over the online sports betting market, but offshore operators are likely to still take a big chunk of the total wagers placed on sports betting online.
