A complete breakdown of the legal landscape surrounding sports betting in Alaska.
Sports betting is not legal and not likely to be legal in Alaska anytime soon due to the state’s vast land area, small population, and lack of any major sports teams. That means, lobbyists most likely won’t waste efforts on the Last Frontier State.
Despite attempts to authorize and regulate online sports betting, the a recent bill from 2022 has stalled in front of the House Labor and Commerce Committee.
There are currently no legal sports betting options or online sportsbooks that accept bets from within Alaska, and offshore books should be avoided due to the lack of consumer protection.
Betting on horse racing is illegal in Alaska, as is all other forms of gambling aside from bingo, video pull tabs and daily fantasy sports (which is not specifically regulated by Alaskan law).
Sports betting is not currently legal in Alaska. Despite multiple efforts to legalize it over the past few years, all attempts have been unsuccessful.
