Is Sports Betting Legal In Memphis, TN?

Book Of Law

US federal gambling laws shape the enforcement of online sports betting. They are each designed to address a separate component of the domestic sports gambling market. The PASPA act was a federal ban on betting forms that extended to 46 states, including Tennessee until 2018.

PASPA was enacted in 1992 and prevented the Volunteer State from hosting any local sportsbooks. PASPA was ruled unconstitutional in a 7-2 decision by the Supreme Court in May 2018.

The Federal Wire Act handles US-based gambling businesses. This law prevents them from accepting wagers, data, or gaming information across state lines. At one point, lawmakers tried to pass off the Federal Wire Act as a law against all online gambling, however, the US Department of Justice deemed it only applies to online sports wagering in 2011.

However, in 2019 the DOJ reversed his opinion and considers it to apply to all domestic interstate gaming capabilities.

The UIGEA Act oversees banks, credit card companies, and other financial establishments and how transactions are completed in regards to Internet gambling sites. The UIGEA was passed in 2006 and works to prevent any illegal financial activity like money laundering, theft, etc.

Since our recommended sportsbooks are licensed offshore, they are technically outside US jurisdiction. Tennessee does not have any state laws against offshore sportsbooks as well.
