Voters in three more states have said “Yes” to sports betting in their state during the 2020 election. Maryland, Louisiana and South Dakota had prop measures on the ballot to allow land based and/or online sports betting and all three were approved. It will still take further action from each state at the state legislation level before residents can start to bet at regulated sportsbooks, but it is expected for this to take place sometime in 2021.
We feel this is important for two reasons. First it shows many Americans want the ability to bet on sports and play casino games online. This year only three states offered a prop measure asking their residents to vote on whether to allow sports betting and in all three cases voters approved the measure. Secondly, with these three states now on the verge of offering state regulated sports betting, it brings the total number of states to 21 which is over 40% of the states. We hope the majority of the remaining states are watching and offer their residents the opportunity to vote on what they want.
All is not lost however if you do live in one of the 21 states. There are still plenty of options for all USA residents when it come to betting on sports and playing casino games online. And if you wish you could walk into a land based casino in your state you can do the next best thing, play at a live dealer online casino.
Live dealer online casinos allow you play at a brick and mortar casino connected by a live streaming feed. You can see the dealer, the game table, the cards or roulette wheel, and watch as the game unfolds in real time right in front of your eyes. The cameras and microphones never leave the table and you watch every second of every game including the time in between games. There are a few reasons why playing a live dealer casino online is actually better than playing at a brick and mortar casino.
See any of our recommended USA friendly live dealer casinos and enjoy playing live dealer blackjack, roulette, baccarat, super 6 and casino holdem for real money at any time of the day. You can also play standard online casino games, slots and video poker machines and at several of our recommended live dealer casinos you can also bet on sports.

We are happy with the addition of three more states which will soon be allowing sports betting. If you are still waiting on your state to listen to your voice, or at least offer a proposition where residents can vote on whether to allow online gambling, play at a USA live dealer casino and use the above link to bet on sports as well as play live dealer and standard casino games. Currently only live dealer blackjack, live dealer baccarat, live dealer roulette and live dealer casino holdem are available but we do expect more USA friendly live dealer games to become available shortly. In the meantime enjoy the casinos and the games listed here LiveCasinoUSA and always know your money is safe with fair games and reputable operators.
