    Default U.S. sports gambling ban has been lifted: What happens next?

    Today, the U.S. Supreme Court determined the federal ban on sports betting as established by the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act of 1992 is unconstitutional, which could pave the way for the legalization of sports betting in all 50 states.

    So what happens next? Here's what renowned gaming attorney Daniel Wallach thinks, per his article in the NY Post:

    The Supreme Court’s decision in Murphy v. National Collegiate Athletic Ass’n (named after New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy, who inherited the lawsuit from his predecessor, Chris Christie) will not end the debate on sports betting legalization, however.

    The five major U.S. sports leagues which had filed the lawsuit against New Jersey — the NFL, NBA, NHL, MLB and NCAA — and were on the losing side today, will likely turn their attention to state legislatures and ramp up their lobbying efforts. The NBA and MLB (joined by the PGA) have led efforts to ensure that any state sports betting laws provide appropriate safeguards to protect the integrity of their contests, including barring players or referees from betting and requiring data sharing and coordination between casinos and the leagues to better spot irregularities or attempts at manipulation, which will be crucial to ensuring public confidence in the betting markets.

    They also want to ensure that betting is mobile, as without legal mobile products, black market betting will remain widespread.
    The leagues are also advocating for state statutory provisions that would require sports betting operators use the leagues’ “official data” to settle all bets and wagers. The leagues also want to be given the power to restrict wagers on their own contests, because they believe certain types of bets are more susceptible to manipulation than others, like minor league games or bets on who commits the first foul in a game.
    Looking further ahead, the leagues will also likely pursue new federal legislation to replace PASPA as part of an effort to create a uniform sports betting law that would apply equally to all states. The prospects of such a federal law passing in a crucial midterm election year are not particularly promising, however.

    But, at least for now, sports betting will be legal in any state that wants to have it, and as many as six-to-10 states are expected to legalize sports betting in time for the beginning of the 2018 NFL regular season.

    Who will be the leaders in the US betting market?
    i assume stars will have a decent market share.

    will this be good or bad for fantasy betting?

    This will most likely be gobbled up by the existing land based operators, there may be some exceptions but most will likely be spoken for.

    They're being super careful about it. Huge licensing fees and taxes to start off. Some states are only allowing betting shops.

    DraftKings is going to be a major player as they are prepared to jump on this RIGHT AWAY. FanDuel won't be far behind and then casinos will jump on board slowly I believe. It's going to be a wild ride for us here in the states.

    As a "US Sports Betting" content provider I'm pretty pumped about the news. Guessing the amount of interest around sports betting is going to increase dramatically.

    My head is spinning with how this is going to play out over the next couple years...

    Okay, so I was right in believing that SCOTUS was probably going to kill PASPA, as I used to comment before. The second part is that I believe this will probably lead to a great acceleration in the progress of US online gambling in general.

    It will be very interesting to see how they manage licensing.

    Will the US authorities be vindictive against the existing books that run out of Costa Rica and Curacao ?
    Will the US authorities be quick to "green light" books that have followed the rules in UK and Australia ?

    Or will everything be slowed down to a crawl to benefit the existing land based casinos ?

    Here's the difference this time, however: Except for the few grandfathered in from PASPA, there is no such thing as entrenched interests which already have a head start. There is no such thing as a casino in PA or NJ, for example, which can grumble to politicians and policy makers about how they've already been operating and should get a little protection, unlike for casino games. That's a good thing.

    Today the United States Supreme Court overturned the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act (PASPA). This decision legalizes sports betting - and it's great news for sports fans. DraftKings believes life is more fun when you have skin in the game, so we'd like to share what today's news means for you, our valued customers.

    Since DraftKings was founded in 2012, our mission has been to bring fans closer to the games they love. Today's ruling will allow us to further drive fan engagement by harnessing our proven technology to provide you with an innovative online sports betting product.

    DraftKings is uniquely positioned to succeed in this dynamic, new market. We are the world's largest daily fantasy sports platform with almost 10 million users. As an American company, we have a unique, authentic understanding of American sports fans, and already have strong relationships with professional leagues and teams.

    So, when can you expect to place a wager through DraftKings? The timing will depend on when individual states move to pass the necessary legislation and set up the regulatory framework that will allow online sports betting. We're hopeful states will move quickly, but lawmakers need to hear directly from fans like you.
    You can take action right now by using our tool to contact your lawmakers.

    Even with today's announcement, DraftKings remains fully committed to daily fantasy sports, which will continue to be a major focus for the company. In fact, sports betting and DFS already co-exist in many parts of the world. This powerful combination, combined with live streaming sports and original content, will position DraftKings - The Game Inside The Game - at the center of your fan experience.

    As always, we'll keep you in the loop every step of the way, so be on the lookout for updates. For now, this is a huge win for sports fans everywhere and we're excited for another opportunity to bring our fans closer to the games they love.
    It is bad news. US market was maybe crippled, but the main bookies have decent affiliate programs. If those even now shaving scammers will jump on board and the grey operators will be pushed away, then I am not jumping with joy. Bovada is recently my most valuable account. 5dimes is decent as well.

    I am not able to work with US companies elsewhere because of paperwork. I am simply turning them down. USA is a fenced economy, I do not want to deal with IRS.

    I just hope the regulators will keep not understanding the internet reality and will impose too harsh regulation and the awesome grey operators will continue pushing the btc gambling through.

    Exactly my thoughts ... imo there are 2 worst case markets. One of them is a fully regulated. If tried to signup with affiliate programs to promote Live Dealer for NJ gamblers. A horrible task with tons of paperwork and requirements AND you become an IRS victim. Donīt want to hear the sound of handcuffs at a US airport.

    It could be troublesome for non-US affiliates to sort out their taxes, that's for sure. But a new market opening of approx 200m people? A small price to pay, surely!

    Once New Jersey and West Virginia open their doors to sports betting in the coming months expect an arms race to follow....especially when other blue collar states follow suit.

    I was never in the US and I will never be even now. It is sad, I wanted to see Alaska. Even my banker told me he knows he would be arrested there because he opened bank accounts to US persons in the past.

    It is not that the market was fully closed. The US market worked pretty well until now. As I said, Bovada atm is my best affiliate program.

    IDK where you guys take that hopium. After regulation markets of France, Italy, NL, UK, Czech, Romania, Portugal went to complete ****. Sometimes the revenues dropped way below 10%.

    Should I celebrate that my income will maybe drop to peanuts? That is nuts. Especially after what happened in the NJ. Flat fee licence for CPA? Gambling licence for revenue share? It is absolutely crazy. And if the US is for real, this will happen.

    I guess many people are partying way too early.

    I red in some media that sports betting is now legal in the US. That's not the case. Every state is free to make their own policy. That means dozens of laws, licenses, frameworks, etc.

    It will be worse than Europe perhaps. I don't see Wyoming or something with 600.000 inhabitants being a better market than for example Belgium with 11 mio inhabitants. There's no market of 200m people. There are many smaller markets and some bigger markets.

    It will be interesting for some big local players or international super affiliates. Not for others, neither for people that are working now fine with some offshore bookies and - when promoting legal brands - have to change that into WH, Betfair, 888, etc.

    Leave alone the bunch of paperwork, US tax crap, etc.

    I am sure each state will protect itself from other states and from non state based license holders. Rumors of a license costing 10Mill to start, also NFL players are somehow expecting a piece of this lol. SO if they tax winnings and pay players, your $100 bet on the browns in case they actually win may only pay out 90?

    Lots of questions out there but never be surprised of the ingenious ways government can find to tax you.

    The court ruling is very good news for the big casinos especially in the states that can start offering sportsbetting quickly - NJ and NV. I was looking at 2017 gaming earnings for the land casinos recently, and those in New Jersey especially are doing great with their casino sites. I believe the Golden Nugget made almost half their gambling earnings from their website.
    It is bad news for any gaming affiliate from the US; you cannot be an offshore gaming affiliate and be accepted as an affiliate with a land casino.
