Sportsbooks have opened across New Jersey and Mississippi in recent months after the Supreme Court in May ruled in favor of legal sports wagering nationwide. More states will surely follow, and follow quickly.

The Westgate Las Vegas Superbook, a spot many consider the best book in Las Vegas, will soon expand its gaming platform to other states, it announced Wednesday.

“We have written the playbook, and now we will put it in action across the national field,” said Jay Kornegay, the vice president of race and sports operations at the Superbook, in a statement.

Future sites and gaming partners will be announced later, officials said.

“The Superbook brand has been the leader of the sports book industry for more than 30 years,” said Diana Bennett, CEO for Paragon Gaming, the operator of casino and resort operations for Westgate. “Gaming regulators across the country will now have a trusted partner as they move forward, and casino operators will be able to draw on the experience and expertise that has made Superbook the benchmark for sports betting.”
