It is now legal to bet on sports in 25 states! Half of the US agree to sports betting

Gambling in the United states
Americans are allowed to gamble on sports in 25 states. It is pretty impressive, and it is continuing to grow.

With the Presidential race still up in the air some other news in voting has turned out pretty good. Three states had measures on the ballot to legalize sports betting: Maryland, Louisiana and South Dakota, and all voted yes.

According to Yahoo Sports, Maryland passed the measure with more than 66 percent of people voting yes. More than 58 percent voted yes to sports betting in South Dakota. Most parishes in Louisiana voted yes to allow sports betting, many by a wide margin.

What does this mean? It means that now in half of the United States of America, you can bet on sports. That is right, 25 of the 50 states have voted yes to sport gambling, according to American Gaming Website.

There is also active legislation regarding sports betting in three states: Hawaii, Massachusetts and Ohio.
