Sportsbooks in California

California does not allow sports betting in casinos or online at this moment.

Is Gambling Legal in California?

Card rooms or poker clubs are legal in California. Native American Casinos are also very common in the state and offer a wide variety of gambling options.

Lottery, Bingo, and Horse Racing are all legal in California.

Is Sports Betting Legal in California?

Sports betting is illegal in California. According to Sports Illustrated‘s Jeremy Fuchs, “A dispute and a looming lawsuit between tribes and the legislature makes a sports betting bill unlikely.

Bills to legalize sports betting have been introduced in session since 2015, though they have yet to make significant progress.

What is the Legal Betting Age in California?

The minimum gambling age in California is 18 years old, however, most Indian Casinos serve alcohol which makes the minimum age 21 to comply with the state issued alcohol license.

Can I Bet Online in California?

The only legal form of online gambling permitted in California is horse racing, with TVG being the main provider in the state. Daily Fantasy Sports sites like DraftKings and FanDuel accept players from California under the claim that their sites are skill based; which has gone unchallenged by the state itself.

There has been at least one attempt a year since the late 2000’s to legalize online poker but all of the participants necessary have been unable to agree on a compromise.

When will California have Online Gambling?

A group named Californians for Sports Betting filed a sports betting initiative in July of 2018 but it would not be on the ballot until the 2020 election.

The California constitution prohibits sports betting and would require a voter referendum to make any kind of change. Between 500,000 and 600,000 signatures would be needed to place the measure on the ballot and could cost anywhere between $2 and $3 million. Any kind of sports betting referendum would benefit from the backing of Native American tribes who hold tremendous political clout in the state.

Tribal gaming generates upwards of $8 billion annually for the state of California. Moral of the story, sports betting in California still seems to be a ways off.
