The sports betting market has grown significantly in recent years. Read on to find out why more and more US citizens are betting on sports.
By / Publisher

In 2023, the sports betting industry increased in value by a staggering 44.5% from the previous year, with over $11 billion in revenue. This growth represents more generated revenue than every other source of income in the gaming industry, including iGaming, table games, and slots. Several factors have contributed to this sudden growth, including legalization, technology, and a cultural shift. Below, we will discuss why more US citizens are betting on sports and what the future looks like. 

State-Level Legalization

Betting on sports was taboo, and it was illegal in most states in the United States. However, a shift in the legal landscape has enabled people to enjoy betting on all types of games, including sports. The Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act, which occurred in 1992, meant that betting on sports was prohibited mainly in the United States. It was not until 2018 that the federal ban was removed, essentially making betting on in-person and online sports legal.

In 2020, 19 states made it legal to participate in online sports betting; by 2023, 33 states had joined in reversing the ban.

Some states, such as Tennessee and Kentucky, have partially lifted the ban. You can bet online in these states but cannot place sports bets in person, leading to a significant rise in digital betting in these states. It is likely that as time goes on, we will continue to see more states in the US lifting…

The Empire State Building, in partnership with the FDNY, will be illuminated in yellow, white, and blue with their signature heartbeat effect at sunset, today, Sunday, May 19th in celebration of National EMS Week 2024.

“New York City’s EMTs and Paramedics are dedicated, brave, highly trained, and the best at what they do,” said New York City Mayor Eric Adams. “They respond to thousands of calls a day, helping keep both New Yorkers and visitors safe. We owe them a great debt of gratitude and we are proud to celebrate them during EMS Week.”

“For 16 years, the Empire State Building has honored the hard work of the men and women of EMS in their iconic lighting display,” said Fire Commissioner Laura Kavanagh. “FDNY EMS are dedicated professionals whose resilience and dedication lights New Yorkers’ darkest hours. During EMS Week, we celebrate the officers, paramedics, and EMTs who work diligently to care for New Yorkers in times of need. I am incredibly proud of all the hard work our members do each day.”

EMS Week is an annual celebration designed to promote public safety among all New Yorkers, attract potential EMS recruits, and celebrate the lifesaving efforts of more than 4,400 members of FDNY’s Emergency Medical Service. The theme of this year’s FDNY EMS Week is “Behind Every Uniform is…

    The vibrant and diverse atmosphere of the Bronx came alive at the SAGE Center housed in the Crotona Pride House in the Bronx during the recent Express Yourself Fashion Talent Show. Organized by Pedro “Prynce Pedro” Gonzalez and Robert “Silk” Mason, the event was a celebration of talent, passion, and inclusivity within the LGBTQ+ community.

    The collaboration between The Incomparable Kiki Haus of Zara and The Kiki Royal Haus of Silk brought together fashion enthusiasts of all ages, with attendees traveling from as far as Queens and Yonkers to witness the spectacle. The show was a testament to Pedro’s vision of revitalizing fashion in the ballroom scene and Mason’s dedication to providing a platform for the new generation.

    Pedro “Prynce Pedro” Gonzalez, a Bronx resident hailing from New Haven, CT, unveiled The Incomparable Kiki Haus of Zara earlier this year, aiming to reinvigorate the fashion landscape within the ballroom community. With nearly a dozen members, the house is on its way to gaining recognition for its innovative designs and fierce runway presence.

    Robert “Silk” Mason, a recent graduate of The Julliard School, introduced The Kiki Royal Haus of Silk at the HMI Ball this year. Driven by a desire to empower today’s youth, Mason’s house embodies creativity and inclusivity, providing a space for self-expression and growth.

    The Express Yourself Fashion Talent Show was more than just a runway event; it was a celebration of diversity and unity. Performances ranged from electrifying fashion displays to spirited dance numbers, with LGBTQ+ seniors taking center as…
