On October 28, 1992 the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act (PASPA) was signed into law by President George H.W. Bush. While sports betting was already illegal, PASPA banned states from regulating and taxing sports betting. Roughly 25 years later, on May 14, 2018 the U.S. Supreme Court repealed this law allowing states to establish their own regulations on sports betting.
With an aggressive implementation timeline, numerous regulatory hurdles, and several tracks of work that required a high-level of engagement from over 150 stakeholders Caesars Entertainment launched its first retail sports book in New Jersey approximately 77 days after the May 14, 2018 decision.
Market sizing analysis predicts that the overall sports betting opportunity in the US is estimated to be $11 Billion. This assumes that all 50 states legalize sports betting similar to Nevada (with both casinos and mobile products offering sports betting). New Jersey, with a projected market size of ~$390M and Mississippi (planning to legalize at casinos only)
According to playusa.com “Caesars Entertainment isn’t just seeing direct revenue from sports betting. The increased number of casino guests is affecting food and beverage sales. Adjacent outlets to sportsbooks such as restaurants and bars experienced a 10 to 20 percent increase in business.”
