The Supreme Court has overturned a national ban on sports gambling. The 1992 federal law banning sports gambling was disbanded Monday, May 14th after a 6-3 decision by the Supreme Court justices. States now have the right to make their own laws regarding sports gambling and many are expected to legalize it all together soon. Sports fans will now be able to gamble on sports not only online but in casinos as well. The ruling approved gambling on sports at both the professional and NCAA levels. Political leaders are calling this a victory for states rights.
Minnesota lawmakers are working to put a plan together for the legalization of sports gambling. Hopefully, Minnesotans will soon be able to lose their money on sporting events and not only casino games.
