The legality of betting on sports is still a matter of debate but a few states have begun to allow the sport. The legality of betting on sports is in Iowa since 2019 both offline and online. ยูฟ่า and Gaming Commission supervises the business and is charged a licensing fee to the online operator. Sports betting in Michigan is legal on the internet as well as in retail casinos. The program was introduced in three casinos in March 2020, a few months ahead of the Coronavirus pandemic. Mississippi has also tried its hand at betting on sports events, but has not fully adopted mobile wagering.

The repeal of PASPA has triggered a wave of legislative and business momentum. Four major American sports leagues have partnered with sports betting operators in recent years. Some have even launched official sports booking channels. Nevada is a notable exception. Sports betting payouts have always been based on results. PASPA has banned both betting on online and in-person sports, except Nevada. However, apps for betting on sports help users by processing payments and registering betting decisions and acting as digital clearinghouses to process payouts and bet calls.
