– Sports betting officially began in New Jersey on Thursday, some seven years after voters here authorized the activity and touched off a multimillion-dollar legal battle that ended last month at the U. They argued, successfully, that the state was in violation of the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act of 1992, which prohibits most states from legalizing and regulating sports betting. They repealed an old state statute that banned sports betting at casinos and race tracks, leaving in place only some broad limits on the activity.
