Competition over sport betting intensifies

The Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act of 1992, focused in assigning the legal position of sports betting in the US. The act, also known as "Bradley Act", forbided sports betting nationwide, for the exception of a few states.

Back in 1993, the state of New Jersey failed back taking advantage of the opportunity to create an exclusion for itself as the act authorized a one year opportunity for states that handled licensed casino gaming ten years before the law was passed.

Now the deadline passed to the National Football League, NCAA and other pro sports leagues act the same way New Jersey did in 1993.
