Sports betting to be legalized in Washington DC

19 Sep 2018

A new era is about to begin in the United States as the sports betting seems to be back on track! As it was revealed a few days ago, the Supreme Court of the US removed the 1992 law, under which sports betting was banned in the whole country. The change of the federal law, gave the chance to the states of Delaware, Mississippi, Nevada, New Jersey, and West Virginia to take advantage of New Jersey’s challenge. We are now at a turning point, where Washington DC will introduce a new gambling bill, according to which, the residents of the nation's capital, as well as its visitors, will be able to take part in betting activities, both online and offline.

Should the bill pass, it will have a huge effect to the citizens' lives as well, given that this means that people residing in Washington will avoid visiting Hollywood Casino, located in West Virginia, in order to place their bets on sports events. Gambling operators wanting to be part of this new era, will have to pay a rather affordable fee of 5 up to 50 thousand dollars to receive a five-year license.
