The traditional sports booking process included visiting a Sports Booking Operator and placing your bets. This is still the practice in Nevada which is where PASPA is not in effect. However, legalization of mobile and online betting has led to the development of official channels for booking sports by major American teams. In-person casinos are adapting to evolving customer needs and the increase in betting on sports via mobile and online. While the traditional sports booking process requires you to visit a Sports Booking Operator, you can also use a mobile app to place bets and register your betting decisions. The apps act as clearing houses that act as digital for bet calls and payouts.

Online betting on sports is legal in most states. However do not allow it. In Iowa, sports betting is allowed in retail casinos and online. The Iowa Racing and Gaming Commission regulates both the sports book as well as the gambling industry. In Michigan, sport booking was only recently legalized within the state’s borders, but the program was launched at three retail casinos in March 2020, just enough time to prepare for the Coronavirus pandemic. While Mississippi has tried its hand at sports betting, it has not yet fully embraced mobile wagering.
