Hear ye, hear ye, welcome to the era of legalized sports betting

Posted By admin on January 25, 2019

On May 14, the Supreme Court ruled the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act (PASPA) unconstitutional. PASPA was the law that prohibited sports betting except in a few grandfathered states. The decision opened the door to legalized sports betting throughout the US, leaving the regulation of the activity to the states. Pennsylvania was one of a handful of states that legalized sports betting ahead of the Supreme Court’s ruling. Of course, it would be months before sports betting would actually come to the Keystone State. Regulations needed to be finalized, the application process needed to open, and licenses needed to be approved. For that reason, it ended up taking six months for the PGCB to get its ducks in a row before the first sports wager was made.
