More states look to legalize sports betting in the wake of New Jersey's success

source : Since the Supreme Court overturned a federal ban on sports betting in 2018, more and more states have been looking to legalize it. And New Jersey has been leading the way, with its sports betting industry generating nearly $200 million in revenue in 2019. Now, other states are hoping to replicate New Jersey's success. Illinois, Iowa, and Indiana have all passed laws legalizing sports betting, and more states are expected to follow suit in the coming years.
