Here's the current rundown of gambling legality by state. Chris Christie, R-N.J., said on the Supreme Court steps, "If we're successful here, we can have bets being taken in New Jersey within two weeks of a decision by the court". The ruling strikes down the 1992 federal anti sports gambling law.

The complete, broad victory is good news for other states, too. "States are now free to allow their residents to place mobile sports bets with licensed, trusted companies based in the USA and that pay taxes here".

The Supreme Court's court decision reversing that outcome will make it easier to open the door to sports betting. "Hundreds of thousands of Minnesotans already wager on sports". The crux of the argument is that if the state government and its people are bound unwillingly to a state law imposed by the government, it's unconstitutional.

That should happen quickly, possibly under a new Assembly bill that's gaining sponsorship.

Ever since its announcement in April, Hard Rock Atlantic City has been working hard to prepare for its June 28 opening, but on Wednesday, it finally received its crucial New Jersey casino license from the Casino Control Commission. Borgata reportedly has $7 million blueprints ready to go, and the new owner of the Ocean Resort Casino says he wants a best-in-market sportsbook. About a dozen other states have recently considered sports betting bills, and several of them were on hold awaiting this federal resolution.

Geoff Freeman, president of the American Gaming Association industry group, welcomed the decision, saying it favors "an open, transparent and responsible market for sports betting". And cash-starved states are salivating at the thought of raising billions from legalizing and licensing that activity, not to mention taxing the proceeds.

While leagues have looked to grab a piece of the what could become a $10 billion-a-year sports gambling business in New Jersey - mostly through a hoped-for 1 or 2 percent integrity fee attached to each wager - the revelation that individual teams may now be interested in partnerships means in-stadium advertising for bookmakers could be coming down the road.

New Jersey attempted to bring the case to the Supreme Court in 2014, but had their initial request for hearing denied.
