The Legalization of Sports Gambling Worldwide

The United Kingdom & Europe

The European Union (E.U.) has regulated sports gambling and has laws set in place that allow almost any country to participate in legal sports gambling and casino gambling in general. Europe is considered a "single state" regarding economic significance. To a certain extent, governed by legislation passed by the E.U.; however, these individual countries are responsible for passing their laws. This is especially true inside the gambling industry since no legislation or regulation assimilates betting and gaming throughout Europe.

There is no sector-specific E.U. legislation in gambling services. E.U. countries are sovereign in the methods they arrange their gambling services if they adhere to the constitutional freedoms established under the Treat of the Functioning of the European Union (TFEU), as detailed by the European Court of Justice of the European Union.

Many E.U. countries allow sports betting and games of chance on the internet. Certain countries allow all types of gambling, while others only allow certain types like betting, poker, or casino games. In some E.U. jurisdictions, monopolizing administrations offering online gambling services have been established. They are serviceable by a state-controlled public operator or by a private operator based on an exclusive right.

With that said, online gambling regulation in European countries is portrayed by diverse regulatory frameworks. In a few segments, the Court of Justice of the E.U. (CJEU) has controlled the compliance of national regulatory frameworks with E.U. law. The authority encourages E.U. countries to modernize their national online gambling frameworks, especially the framework of administrative cooperation between gambling regulatory authorities. Support is also provided to safeguard a high level of protection for users and susceptible people, including minors.

The European Industry Surveillance

Almost any form of gambling you can imagine is regulated within Europe. Whether you are gambling online, visiting a local E.U. has been far more advanced in terms of legalization, especially in comparison to the United States of America. 

Gambling and sports betting in Europe are intensely monitored through law and industry regulations. This oversight is managed by the European Betting and Gaming Association (EBGA). The industry's leading companies founded the EBGA, and its objective is to work closely with government authorities to construct gambling regulations in the European Union.

The ESSA was launched in 2005 to monitor the betting markets, alarm sporting bodies and national regulators to suspicious betting patterns. Protection for customers from potential fraud caused by manipulating sporting events has been crucial for gambling business ethics. They support the E.U.'s governing bodies and individual nations to deliver a fair market for everyone to bet.

Transparency in the E.U. gambling business is paramount and assists genuine sportsbooks in gaining customer trust. With an industry profiting over $100 billion annually, nothing is more important than customer relations. 

The United States

The gambling scene in America is legally restricted. Gambling activities developed gross revenues of $92 billion in the United States. The American Gaming Association states that the United States is a $240 billion industry.

Gambling is legal under U.S. federal law, but the significant restrictions pertain to interstate and online gambling. Each state is free to regulate or prohibit the practice within its borders.

The Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act of 1992 prohibited sports betting throughout the nation, excluding certain states. That was until 2018 when the United States Supreme Court declared the entire law unconstitutional. Including state-run lotteries, 48 states currently allow some form of gambling. But casino-style and online gambling are much less widespread. Federal law's uncertainty allows more freedom for gambling in America each year, as these laws are constantly challenged and freeing up more locations to participate each year.

States Endorse a More Favorable Approach to Sports Gambling Regulation

Online gambling and sports betting continue to collect traction as states alter their rules and become more favorable towards said services. A report by Hartford Courant, a rewrite of gambling law in Connecticut, agreed to by the Government Ned Lamont and the two tribal casinos, passed in a General Assembly. They are approving sports betting, in Bridgeport. These successes and positive results should be welcomed throughout the nation considering the tax revenue the industry provides.

Online gambling and online sports betting brought in $42.7 million in gross receipts for the first ten days of legalization in Michigan, state regulators said.

2020 was critical for the progress of the legal infrastructure for sports betting. Three states included gambling on the ballot to legalize sports betting: Maryland, South Dakota, and Louisiana. All three states voted yes as the election became effective. In addition, the law demands that 80% of the tax revenue raised from sports betting in Tennessee will assist funding for education. A further 15% will go to local government infrastructure projects, and 5% will improve mental health sectors in the state.

Online Gambling Potential Continue to Expand Nationwide

As the legal system gains slow traction on a favorable opinion towards online sports betting, states from around the country are accepting the growing industry for raising tax revenue. In recent times, the advancement of sports betting in Illinois expanded the online wagering options to become available to the state's 12 million residents. Data published by Forbes proved that Illinois is estimated to profit $73 the estimates of the $488 million annual markets come to fruition. The 15% tax raised through gaming revenue will increase once proceedings allow online and mobile offerings are put in place.

The rapid increase of popularity in online gambling is due to several components, such as the upgrades in digital marketing, broader available modern technologies, and easy-to-use systems. In recent times, the global online gaming market has enlarged to serve one of the quickest growing divisions of the gambling industry. Crucial developments related to this field were applied. For example, last year, the first college sports deal with a gambling company outside of Nevada was achieved.

Sports betting is now legal in more than two dozen states in the U.S.; however, many of these states have in-person betting only. A considerable number of states are reconsidering the legalization due to budget shortcomings. Still, with political opposition and tribal relationships, we expect that some states will never get online sports betting.

It has been three years since the Supreme Court removed the federal ban on sports betting, allowing states to legalize it under their own doing.

But where do these states stand now? Preview our list of all 50 states and where they stand towards the gambling industry.
