Delaware sports betting started in June 2018 with three casinos licensed to accept wagers. State legislators have discussed the possibility of adding online sports betting in the future. It is legal in Delaware but not active.

A tribal group in New Mexico has also begun offering sports betting, though the activity remains illegal elsewhere under state law. Meanwhile, Arkansas voters approved sports betting via a referendum at the ballot box this November and plan to start by late spring, but will be limited to retail sportsbooks initially.

New York and Michigan continue work on sports betting legislation that could pass this year or next. More states likely will take up legal sports betting in 2019, with Connecticut and New Hampshire at the front of the line.
