Why it matters: Since the U.S. Supreme Court struck down a federal ban on sports betting in 2018, the majority of states have acted to legalize the activity.
In 37 states, along with Washington, D.C., retail and online sports betting is now legal and in operation.
Per Legal Sports Report, more states are expected to revisit or introduce new legislation in 2024.
Yes, but: Five states have no legislation to legalize sports betting: California, Alaska, Alabama, Utah and Idaho.
