It’s one of biggest pieces of news to hit the sporting world this year – the Supreme Court will now allow sports gambling in every state. So what does it mean?

Why so much still has to be sorted outHow online gambling will be legislated on a state-by-state basis, and why placing bets isn’t as easy as simply driving to whatever state allows legalized gambling. Also, why you might be able to bet on certain sports some places but not others.
