What States Allow Online Gambling?

Since the Supreme Court lifted their ban in 2018, online gambling has grown rapidly in many states, introducing their own regulated sports betting markets and casino apps. Yet the landscape remains complex: some states don’t provide any form of legalized gaming at all while others may offer limited options – on top of a handful who still don’t allow any form of legal gambling at all!

More states than ever before now permit some form of online gaming (iGaming). Some of the country’s premier casinos now provide players with access to bet on any sport or event from virtually anywhere worldwide – though certain states do have more stringent gambling laws than others, making it important for individuals to check local regulations prior to placing any bets.

Many major online gambling markets have opened within the past several years, with Pennsylvania becoming one of the biggest destinations. Pennsylvania consistently ranks in the top five for total sports betting handles while other states like New York, Michigan and Illinois also experienced exponential increases in betting handles in recent times. Although Nevada had an initial slow start, they continue to attract bettors from across the nation.

Arkansas and Kansas have yet to establish legal sports betting markets, though lawmakers in both states have indicated their openness. With Midwest becoming a hub for iGaming, Arkansas and Kansas may soon join in as well.

Colorado boasts a fully operational market that first started operations in May 2020. Although Colorado may not boast as high of a population as other states, its market has still proven lucrative for operators; consistently ranking among the top five in sports betting handle.

Oregon sports betting market is more limited, with DraftKings as its sole mobile operator and retail sportsbooks only accepting bets on professional teams from other states; college betting in-state is banned altogether.

Minnesota boasts several online sportsbooks as well as tribal casinos for residents to gamble at; unfortunately, however, no form of online casino play exists here – which means no online gaming anytime soon for Minnesota residents.

Nebraska boasts several retail sportsbooks that permit in-person betting but has yet to pass legislation for online casino gambling. Churchill Downs can be found there, so we could possibly see changes to Nebraska’s regulations in the near future.
