Kentucky sports betting is legal.
Sports Betting in Kentucky is legal as of March 2023. However, it is not operational yet. Rep. Michael Meredith’s bill (HB 551), which passed the House and Senate in March, was signed by Governor Andy Beshear in early April 2023. HB 551 allows both online and retail betting (at racetracks).
Nine licensed horse tracks can offer in-person betting and up to three sportsbooks per horse track for a total of 27 possible sportsbooks in KY. Most of the action will take online form through the sportsbooks associated with the horse tracks. In the meantime, regulators at the Kentucky Horse Racing Commission will have to issue online sports betting licenses to eligible operators.
The expectation is that it will take several months to sort out all of the licensing issues. Most of the bigger players with sportsbooks in most states should be in the mix in KY. However, be sure to stay tuned as we will provide updates once available. Hopefully, sportsbooks will launch in Kentucky by the late fall or winter of 2023.
