Sports Betting – Georgia


Georgia sports betting is not legal.

Many residents have to head to other states in the region in order to place their bets. As far as the push for legal sports betting in the state, matters seem to have hit a standstill.

It’s still anyone’s guess if or when in-state sports betting could be legalized. After a few years of deliberation and little movement, Georgia swiftly put legal sports betting on the radar in 2021. After failing to gain traction in the 2022 and 2023 legislative sessions, state lawmakers will have to revisit legalizing mobile wagering in 2024.

There was hope at the start of 2023 when a group of senators began proposing new bills that would legalize sports betting in Georgia. However, multiple pieces of legislation were voted down in March and brought the process back to square one. There are reports that some of the legislators haven’t given up the fight to legalize Georgia mobile sports betting in 2023. However, there is no available timeline for when new legislation on Georgia sports betting sites will be proposed. For now, it is just a waiting game.

Georgia sports fans have dealt with their fair share of disappointment over the years. However, with the Atlanta Braves hoisting the Commissioner’s Trophy in 2021 and the Georgia Bulldogs winning back-to-back championships in 2022 and 2023, spirits are at an all-time high. With rabid support for its collegiate and professional teams, it’s one of the most sports-crazed states in the union. This potentially makes Georgia sports betting a strong success. In the meantime, potential bettors in the state can continue to focus on daily fantasy sports, Prize Picks and prop betting sites, and other alternatives.
