LegalSportsBetting.com exists to help sports wagering enthusiasts become more knowledgeable about the legalities of the United States sports betting industry. With no federal laws to prevent individual states from regulating their own sports betting markets, the landscape has changed for the better, but it has also become more intricate and complex. With more options to gamble than ever before, where does the prospective bettor begin?
That’s where we come in.
Because each state approaches legalization differently, instead of a single unified betting marketplace, you can view the US sports gambling scene as a hodgepodge of laws, rules, and regulations – 50 different sets for 50 different states. In order to make sense of it all, we’ve put together a host of in-depth primers on everything that the US-based sports bettor needs to know in order to enjoy a safe, legal, profitable, and fun wagering experience.
At LSB, our mission is to keep you updated about industry news, break down nationwide legislative developments, and present primers for legal, safe sports wagering in all 50 states. We also offer first-time bettors a host of comprehensive resources ranging from sports wagering basics and account management tips to major event previews and up-to-date sportsbook reviews.
While we’re based in the US and primarily cover domestic sports betting developments, LegalSportsBetting.com is also concerned with the Internet-based offshore sports betting industry. Despite widespread sports wagering legalization in the US, the vast majority of new and existing American sports bettors still choose to join offshore sports betting sites. By most credible estimates, over 80% of US players regularly wager on sports at these competing overseas sportsbooks. As such, part of our goal at LSB is to educate gamblers about the benefits and detriments of using these services, to inform them about the laws governing these international books, and to help them pick the right providers for their particular wagering interests.
Everyone on staff at LegalSportsBetting.com is an avid sports bettor, and the team has decades of combined wagering experience in both domestic and offshore betting markets. While we are not lawyers, we are experts in our field, and we have done our due diligence to ensure that all the information on our pages is accurate and reliable.
Simply put, we at LegalSportsBetting.com believe that the key to a healthy and robust sports wagering industry is to inform the bettor about all of their options so they can make the best wagers possible, every time. We think we’ve done that, and we’re confident that you’ll agree.
