The Status Of The Sports Betting Legislation In Oregon
However, mobile and online wagering is only allowed when physically on-site at a licensed tribal casino. The Washington State Gambling Commission provides regulatory oversight. Arizona now joins the ranks of U.S. states to offer legalized online sports betting. In April 2021, Gov. Doug Ducey signed the state’s sports wagering bill into law to have retail and online betting options in place by week 1 of the 2021 NFL season. Now, each state and territory has the right to decide if it would like to legalize sports betting. Several states have gone forward with legalizing, regulating, and taxing sports wagering.
Legislation adjourned in May without reaching any consensus, so sports betting is on hold for the time being. A notable provision of the measure is that sports betting operators will be mandated to purchase official league data for all in-play wagers, alongside wagers that aren’t dependent on the event’s final score. For the consumer, this could ultimately limit betting options and make lines more expensive. On the other hand, league data could offer new types of bets based on next-gen stats. It will take time to see whether or not this mandate is a plus or a minus for consumers.
Currently it’s only available through the State lottery and their The Scoreboard sports betting app. Online sports betting sites are expected to launch once the state has decided which operators will be granted licences and should be live for the Super Bowl. “Live, Legal” denotes states where single-game sports betting is legally offered to consumers through retail and/or online sportsbooks.
A proposed bill was introduced this April that would create an Alabama Sports Wagering Commission to oversee the regulation of sports betting in the state. Under the proposed bill, bettors would be able to gamble on pro and college sports. At the time of writing legal South Dakota sports betting is limited to bets placed in person at casinos within the city of Deadwood. Physical sports betting is legal in the First State and the state’s three ‘racinos’ first started taking bets back in June 2018. Online betting is also legal, but has yet to launch within the state and there appears to be no clear timeline as to when this might happen. With a handful of states already offering legal sports betting and tons more poised to get on board, there’s never been a better time to be a sports fan in the US.
FanDuel Sportsbook is an excellent choice for a number of different types of bettors. With FanDuel’s Same Game Parlays, bettors who want to be fully immersed in one specific game can have the most personalized and unique experience available. FanDuel provides arguably the most extensive prop bet markets in the industry, but the sportsbook does have a pronounced focus on domestic sports.
Also of note, the bill passed by the Illinois General Assembly passed in late October contained a sunset clause for in-person registration of online sports betting. The requirement will come to an end on March 5, 2022, or once Illinois’ first online-only sports betting license is issued. Connecticut formally launched statewide online sports betting on Oct. 19, 2021, following a seven-day trial period. Arizona’s sports-betting licensees are sanctioned to partner with another organization to run their digital and retail sportsbooks for them. FanDuel linked up with the Phoenix Suns, and Penn partnered with Phoenix Raceway. FanDuel will launch an online sportsbook and open a retail outlet at the Footprint Center.
