GLMS welcomes the U.S. Supreme Court decision regarding sports betting and recalls the importance of measures against manipulations of sport competitions and illegal betting
Lausanne, 30 May 2018, The U.S. Supreme court ruled on May 14 that states themselves should have the right to regulate and tax sports betting, and considered it unconstitutional for the federal government to ban them from doing so. The court’s decision came in the case of Christie vs. the National Collegiate Athletic Association, a challenge by New Jersey to the federal Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act (PASPA), which banned all states outside of Nevada from offering single-event sports betting. Three other states -- Montana, Oregon and Delaware -- were allowed to offer limited forms of betting under PASPA.
