  • 8 states now offer legal sports betting: Nevada, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, New Mexico, Mississippi, Rhode Island, and West Virginia.
  • $7.9 billion has been legally wagered since PASPA was overturned.
  • $600 million was wagered by Nevada bettors in March — a new monthly record.
  • 30 states are considering legalizing sports betting in 2019.
