We round up all the gambling news for this week and find the expansion
of sports betting in America continues across several new states.
And with the addition of mobile sports betting in those states,
US online gambling also gets a shove in the right direction.

Even if you're not really a fan of American sports betting, you should still be paying attention to it's expansion and understand its connection to the growth of US online gambling! You see, betting on sports is now legal in 28 states, and in many of those states sports wagers are mobile. And betting on sports using your mobile device is online gambling.

Once states successfully regulate (and profit from) online sports betting itís just a matter of time before they turn to online casino games and online poker. And betting on sports in Florida has just been legalized (along with mobile betting), and thatís huge because Florida is the third largest state in America by population.

Also, sports betting in Maryland and Louisiana have also been approved, with mobile bets allowed there, too! Plus, these 10 states all have active legislation right now that could regulate wagering on sports within their borders:

  • Connecticut
  • Kansas
  • Maine
  • Massachusetts
  • Minnesota
  • Nebraska
  • Ohio
  • South Carolina
  • Texas
  • Vermont

So you see, the expansion of bets on sporting events is good for states rights, and itís a doorway into bigger and better things!
