Sports Betting – California


California sports betting is not legal.

Sports betting will likely not appear on the ballot again until at least 2024 after voters rejected the two sports betting initiatives, Prop 26 and Prop 27, during the November 8, 2022 elections.

Proposition 26 would have allowed retail sports betting at 66 tribal casinos and Santa Anita Park, Del Mar Race Track, Los Alamitos Race Course, and Golden Gate Fields. It would have hardened the power of tribes over gaming in the state. Under this initiative’s terms, online sports betting would not be allowed, dealing a blow to major sportsbook brands like DraftKings and FanDuel.

Proposition 27 would have allowed private sportsbook operators to partner with a California tribe to offer mobile sports betting. California bettors would be able to download sportsbook apps and bet from home.

In the meantime, residents of the country’s most populous state will have to make do with daily fantasy sports.
