Rhode Island has been offering legal sports betting since when retail sportsbooks opened at its two commercial casinos. William Hill now owned by Caesars is the only legal retail and online sportsbook in the state. Since it has no casinos, Tennessee is the only state that has online-only sports betting. Virginia took its first online sports bet in January and as many as a dozen options could be available by the end of the year. The lone legal District-wide mobile app, GamBet, is run by the lottery and, partially because it has no legal competition, has offered lines worse than market averages.
Another entrant, Handle 19, is readying to enter the marketplace with a retail location. Overall, D. It will never rival some of the larger markets, but bettors at least have several legal options to place a bet from anywhere within the state. Louisiana is the first to approve sports betting at a county or parish level, so it remains to be seen what sports betting will look like when it launches in or Lawmakers will also need to determine key regulatory details — including allowing online access — which could be a complex legislative process.
Retail casinos will almost assuredly be able to open retail sportsbooks as early as , but it remains to be seen how or if online wagering would be conducted in Louisiana. The voters of Maryland said yes to legalizing sports gambling in the Nov.
But there is widespread, bipartisan support for online and retail betting , meaning Marylanders should expect the launch of a competitive, digital marketplace as early as North Carolina legalized in-person sports betting in July for two tribal casinos in the western portion of the state, but both are still working towards opening their respective sportsbooks.
While that bill did not permit any mobile wagering, the state is expected to consider statewide mobile wagering in Lawmakers still need to pass follow-up legislation, but bettors should expect retail books to open in the historic gaming community of Deadwood as well as tribal casinos as early as The state constitution only permits wagering within Deadwood and tribal lands, but some believe statewide mobile wagering could be approved as long as the servers are placed in Deadwood.
This is far from a sure bet, but could open an interesting new digital market. Washington legalized sports betting on March 25, , though no bets have been taken because the state is in compact negotiations with tribal representatives to come up with terms of a new agreement that will allow sports betting to take place on tribal lands. Arizona officials have touched on sports betting proposals the last few years and are still considering a path for state tribes to take sports bets.
Key details would still need to be resolved, but officials from both parties are bullish on a deal, possibly as early as Online betting may be a tougher endeavor, but Arizona seems on solid footing for some sort of legal wagering sooner than later. With politicians largely supportive, Connecticut remains one of the more plausible states to pass a sports betting bill. But until, or if, stakeholders can reach a deal, sports betting remains illegal.
Some Florida politicians have come out in support of legal wagering, but a host of legal and logistical obstacles have thwarted any legislative efforts. Miami-based sports betting legislation expert Daniel Wallach said a constitutional amendment that prohibits lawmakers from passing gaming legislation without a voter referendum would not necessarily stop the legislature from authorizing sports gambling.
It could still be a major legal stumbling block. The other major concern is the interests of the Seminole Tribe of Florida. Though the Seminoles would almost assuredly support the right to open sportsbooks in Florida, as they have in other states, any authorization would have to come on their terms, which may not include online betting. Meanwhile, the state continues a multi-year standoff over slot machine tax payments and exclusivity rights that also will need to be settled before sports betting authorization can take shape.
Polls in Georgia say that voters are in favor of legalized sports betting. A last-minute legalization bill failed in the final moments of the legislative session, but legal betting could get another look in Brian Kemp might also be a veto threat to sports gambling progress. As we saw during the November election, though, Georgia seems to be trending more and more politically blue every year.
Kansas seemed like a safe bet to approval legal wagering in after both the House and Senate introduced bills to do so. The progress is an encouraging sign, and it appears the idea of sports betting has gained support in Kansas. Key regulatory issues will need to be resolved, and it remains to be seen if online betting is politically palatable, but Kansas could be among the favorites to pass legal retail betting as early as A sports betting bill zoomed out a legislative committee in the Kentucky House in early , but quickly hit a snag as Republican leadership tanked the bill despite bipartisan support.
Conservative, anti-gambling sentiment runs deep in Kentucky and remains a massive political barrier. The good news is that Democratic Gov. Andy Beshear is a big proponent of sports betting legalization, but until Republicans get on board, Kentucky sports betting may not happen. In that environment, it makes statewide mobile wagering even more difficult. Governor vetoed bill A Maine online sports betting bill seemed like a sure bet until Gov.
Janet Mills vetoed what would have been the most competitive market in New England. A veto override fell a few votes short, but sports betting backers are hoping to work with Mills on a new sports betting bill in Republican Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker and members of both parties in the Democrat-controlled General Court support sports betting. Elected officials have not reached consensus on several key issues, such as which entities would be allowed to take bets and if legal betting should include wagers on in-state college teams.
Legal betting should come to Massachusetts in the next two years. Multiple bills floated through the legislature but were dropped when the session ended early, and there are three new bills on the table now. Expect to see some action in for both online and in-person wagering — especially if Kansas is close to doing the same.
This would likely mean retail only, but North Dakota could be among a rare group of states that can take bets without an act of the legislature. Lawmakers held out hope for a bill in the final moments of , but it seems more likely a fresh set of legislators will have to take a new bill when the session begins.
Legal wagering has widespread bipartisan support in the legislative and executive branches, but politicians still need to hammer out a few issues that have stalled legislation for months. Texas would appear to be an unlikely sports betting adopter, but a dire budget situation and investment from outside gaming interests make it a possible target in The Lone Star State is still a longshot , but the pressures of the session the legislature only meets regularly in odd-numbered years could move Texas past its long-standing gambling opposition.
Vermont is one of the few remaining states without casinos, but it may be okay with legal sportsbooks, at least online. The state is considering a study bill and may feel pressured to accept wagering especially as the greater New England market continues to grow. Lawmakers seem unlikely to take up a sports betting bill anytime soon, but the Northern Arapaho Tribe appears it may add retail sports betting under the authority of existing law, much in the way tribes in New Mexico are operating sports betting without any legislation.
Alaska is pretty much nowhere on sports gambling. The 49th state might actually be the 49th to legalize it, if ever. Alabama is one of the few remaining states without a lottery and seems unlikely to thaw its gambling opposition. The legislature had a sports betting bill in the works in March before COVID ended the session early that would have included both in-person and online sports betting, but passing such a bill is still a difficult task in a state with strong gaming aversions.
California sports betting looks like it will be a reality, but only at tribal casinos and most likely not until State tribes are close to finalizing a ballot measure that would allow sportsbooks on tribal grounds. Wagering could begin as early as if approved, but in-person only and not online.
A proposal that would have allowed mobile sports betting while granting extend gaming options to the state commercial cardrooms fell short. With potentially billions of dollars at stake, gaming interests will still pursue California mobile betting, but it appears the tribal casino-only option is the most likely reality for a legal wagering market. Hawaii is one of just two states currently without any major gambling entity of any kind, and it seems sports betting will not be coming to the state for the foreseeable future, if ever.
State laws as written are currently against gambling, save for horse racing. Lawmakers have considered sports betting bills in recent years, but the state has not worked out how it would work, and which entities, most notably Minnesota Native American tribes, would be allowed to take bets. Oklahoma gaming is dominated by Native American entities and most seem disinclined to agree to sports betting until other key issues with the state government are resolved.
Two tribes struck sports betting deals in , but those were later invalidated, part of a larger conflict between competition gaming interests and the government. A court ruling that renewed a previous compact between the two entities gives tribes the upper hand in negotiations with the government. Several bills have been introduced in the past in South Carolina, but none have gained any traction. Sports betting is likely never coming to Utah, the only state in the continental U.
PointsBet CEO Johnny Aitken, a veteran bookmaker, said he has been pleased by the early results of what he calls "game-day guarantees. It actually makes us stronger. Since we launched the game-day guarantees, our margins have improved, because our pricing is more efficient early, and that helps us make more money in the long term. All of the above will require consistent thought on best practices for the market and all stakeholders. However, the most detrimental issue, experts say, has been the lingering disconnect among the professional sports leagues, the gaming industry and state legislators in regard to what's best for the overall success of the new American sports betting market.
It was the first of a handful of never-thought-you'd-see moments last fall featuring sports bosses and bookmakers buddying up to do business together. Cowboys owner Jerry Jones and New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft even kicked off the NFL season as investors in DraftKings, which has added casino gaming and traditional betting to its fantasy sports offerings. This is the new American sports betting industry, where the leagues and their longtime sworn enemies, the bookmakers, are now bedfellows.
But all the sports leagues aren't on the same page on everything, and neither are all the sportsbook operators. Everyone mostly agrees, though, that two specific issues have been the most divisive: a proposed cut of the action for the leagues and control of the data that is used to fuel the wagering. Such fees first popped up in January in a sports betting bill in Indiana and were initially referred to as integrity fees, which prompted snarky bookmakers to ask, "Were they not providing integrity before and now need a cut to ensure it?
The NFL and NHL have not sought any such a fees, and the NCAA also has said it is not looking for a percentage of the amount wagered on college sports, but several of its member schools have expressed interest in receiving a piece of the sports betting pie. Bookmakers point to their small margins of percent and insist that there is not enough room to cut in the sports leagues. The data will be used to generate live betting odds that will be distributed to sportsbooks through league partners.
The leagues insist the use of official league data will provide information to bookmakers more quickly and, in turn, allow live odds to have more shelf life. Bookmakers say they've been running their business just fine with the commercial data feeds they've used for decades. The leagues are still lobbying to have data rights mandated in legislation.
As of mid-May, only Tennessee had passed legislation generally requiring sportsbooks to use official league data. The development of the U. MLB says partnerships between the gaming industry and sports leagues should aim to push people into the new legal market, even potentially through league-backed public service announcements.
We are open to doing PSAs about the dangers of giving your money to an offshore operator versus the safety of using a book in the U. Opinions vary on whether the two sides have made progress on the issues of compensation to the leagues and official data mandates, but everyone involved stresses that it's early in the game.
The American Gaming Association AGA , which represents the casino industry and has been an advocate for expanded legalized sports betting, says progress between the leagues and sportsbook operators is being made and points to some of the shifting language in legislation supported by the leagues. I think [the leagues] have scaled back. Bryan Seeley, MLB vice president and deputy general counsel, said he wasn't sure if progress has been made on the disconnect between the leagues and gaming industry.
Seeley said he also remained concerned about the gaming industry's seeming insistence on growing the betting market on minor league baseball. We're still hoping to see that bill passed somewhere this year. Sports leagues, states and bookmakers ultimately all have the same American sports betting dream: creating a thriving, efficient and lucrative sports betting market that protects the integrity of the underlying games, generates revenue and drives fan engagement.
They just don't all agree on the best way to get it done. While they figure it out, the underground sports betting world will continue to serve the majority of U. Back at the Waffle House in Georgia, Floyd doesn't seem worried about any of it.
He knows the new regulated books in other states are going to have a difficult time competing with what he can offer. Betting on credit and somewhat anonymously will always be more attractive than forking over cash and ID to a casino to get down big on your lock five-teamer. Through black-rimmed glasses perched on his nose, he scans the room, searching not for a place to sit but for someone.
A customer sitting alone in a booth looks up, makes eye contact with the man and says, "Floyd? Floyd strolls over to his client, shakes hands and declines to sit down for a late breakfast.

That may not be the same for smaller states that implement taxes at the same level, however. In addition to hurdles in the legislative process, there remains a fair threat from the judicial process as well. As sports leagues have been striking out with their desired integrity fees, a lawsuit over the ownership of data may be inevitable. The likelihood of the sports leagues being successful in claiming a property interest in the scores of games is near zero, but the leagues may still try to litigate.
As we all know, lawsuits or the threat of lawsuits can induce a company to settle. Pictured: Adam Silver. The risk for the operators? While the two sides argue over who owns what, the sports leagues could seek an injunction to temporarily halt wagering pending resolution of the case.

Earlier this year, lawmakers pushed forward two separate sports betting bills -- one that would allow sports gambling state-wide at casinos, the lottery and off-track betting sites, and a second that would limit sports betting to the federally recognized tribes that operate the state's two casinos, Foxwoods and Mohegan Sun.

The state's legislature will likely look to get an identical or similar version passed in A number of sports betting legalization bills were introduced in , including one from the governor that would allow residents anywhere in the state to place mobile sports wagers not tied to land-based casinos or bet in-person at two newly opened in-state casinos.
