Justice Samuel A. Alito Jr. wrote the majority opinion, joined by Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. and Justices Anthony M. Kennedy, Clarence Thomas, Elena Kagan and Neil M. Gorsuch.

Freeman said this will provide integrity of the games, empower law enforcement to fight illegal gambling and generate new revenue for states and many others.

Daily fantasy sports company DraftKings Inc said in a statement that it is weighing entering the sports betting business as a result of the decision. New Jersey said the Constitution allows Congress to pass laws barring wagering on sports, but Congress can't require states to keep sports gambling prohibitions in place.

Monday, the Supreme Court agreed.
