วิธีแทงบอล booking involved going to a Sports Booking Operator and placing your bets. This is still the case in Nevada which is where PASPA is not in effect. However, the legalization of mobile and online betting has led to the establishment of official channels to book sports by major American teams. In-person casinos are adapting to evolving customer demands, as well as the rise in betting on sports via mobile and online. While the traditional sports booking process still requires you to visit a Sports Booking Operator, you can also use a mobile app to place bets as well as record your betting choices. The applications act as digital clearing houses for bet calls and payouts.

Contrary to traditional casinos, online sport booking is legal in the majority of states, but not all. Online and retail betting are both legal in Iowa. The Iowa Racing and Gaming Commission regulates the gambling industry and the sports book. Sport booking in Michigan was only recently legalized within the state. However, the program started operating in 3 retail casinos in March 2020, just in time to fight the Coronavirus pandemic. Although Mississippi has attempted to get into sport betting, it has not yet fully adopted mobile wagering.
