Vermont is the newest state to embrace online sports betting following Republican Gov. Phil Scott’s signing of a pro-gambling bill Wednesday.
“I first proposed Vermont legalize sports betting several years ago and I’m happy the Legislature has come to an agreement, as well," Scott said in a statement. “We know many Vermonters already participate in the marketplace and bringing it above board provides important resources and consumer protections.”
Vermont was previously the only state in the northeast United States that did not have a legal sports betting market.
