Where Will Caesars Sportsbook Become Legal Next?

Online or retail sports betting with Caesars Sportsbook is not yet legal in the following U.S. states:

  • Alabama
  • Alaska
  • Arkansas
  • California
  • Connecticut
  • Delaware
  • Florida
  • Georgia
  • Hawaii
  • Idaho
  • Minnesota
  • Missouri
  • Montana
  • Nebraska
  • New Hampshire
  • North Dakota
  • Oklahoma
  • Oregon
  • South Carolina
  • South Dakota
  • Texas
  • Utah
  • Vermont
  • Wisconsin

Several of the states listed above have already legalized sports gambling within their borders (e.g., Arkansas, Connecticut, North Carolina, and Oregon). As a result, Caesars may look to launch its platform in these locations in the coming years if they can form suitable partnerships and meet all the requirements and regulations of each state's gaming regulatory authority.

In addition, Caesars Racebook is currently available in a handful of the states shown above, such as Florida and Kentucky. Therefore, it would be reasonable to assume that Caesars Sportsbook may look to enter these markets in the near future as well as soon as digital sports betting becomes available.
