Sports betting could soon be legal in Pennsylvania after a new Supreme Court decision. The challenges brought on by New Jersey, but other states quickly took action as well. Following the Supreme Court's decision to overturn the banning of sports betting, the possibility for people in Pennsylvania to gamble in favor of their favorite teams may arise. On Monday morning, the Supreme Court's majority said the ban against betting violated State's rights to make their own decisions. Governor Wolf expects the Gaming Commission to move forward with legalizing sports betting. Based on last year's budget, sports betting was authorized in the Commonwealth if the ban would ever be lifted, and it appears the time is now. Governor Wolf hopes this would bring in new revenue. Governor Wolf says the earliest that this could happen is next year during the budget and betting could be official by then.
