The drive to legalize sports betting in the US has received a mixed response in different US states. Following the permission of the US Supreme Court to clear the path for legalization of sports betting for every state, a regional divide has sprouted among states on this subject. At the end of this year, there is a high possibility for the legalization of sports betting in 12 states of the Northeast and Midwest regions. However, most of the states in the Deep South and far West regions have not yet agreed on legalization of sports betting.

There are many challenges which state lawmakers are weighing before legalizing sports betting in the US states. On one side, there is a possibility of a huge boost in state revenue and the chances of giving more protection to consumers. While on the other side, the subject of morality acts as a hindrance in the path of legalizing sports betting in the states. The other challenges are about sorting out complex business interests and the increasing opposition from many casino-operating tribes.

It is not yet clear whether the sports betting will be legal in every corner of the country in the coming years or remain concentrated in the areas where it has already become popular. Last year, around $9 billion profit was generated in the sportsbook market. However, the tax on winning amount simply reduced the margin of profit for sportsbook operators. Many websites such as betsjekk.com are smoothly operating in the US and the various other corners of the world as they offer many options of betting for customers.

Except for two states, all the Deep South states have resisted legalizing sports betting. Legalization bill was passed in the Senate but couldn’t survive in the House. Many US politicians are supporting the legalization of sports betting as they say that there are already many best betting sites and offshore websites and casinos which are operating in the country.
