Where Can I Bet Sports Legally in Arkansas?

Oaklawn Jockey Club (near Little Rock) and Southland Racing Corporation (near Memphis).

Two additional gambling licenses to include sports betting will be granted to applicants. Those properties will likely be casinos located in Pope County and Jefferson County.

There are no initial proposals for mobile or online sports betting in Arkansas. That will change once legal sports betting begins in the state. While residents in Arkansas wait for legal sports betting at locations within the state, there are other options to bet on sports online.

Residents of Arkansas may visit legally sanctioned, US-friendly online sportsbooks that operate offshore or outside the United States. Offshore sports betting is considered legal in most states because licensed offshore sportsbooks are located outside the jurisdiction of the US federal laws. A majority of online sports betting sites and offshore sportsbooks set the minimum age at 21 years old.

Arkansas Sports Betting


Arkansas has historically had a limited range of legal horse racing and greyhound racing. Sports betting in Arkansas has been restricted to pari-mutuel wagers at destinations like Oaklawn Park and Southland Park. As well as pari-mutuel betting, racetracks also offer some electronic games of skill (EGS). These were introduced under a 2010 Arkansas Code.

But since the US Supreme Court overturned the PASPA (Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act) in 2018, states like Arkansas have looked at ways to expand their gambling operations, also online.

One campaign is Driving Arkansas Forward, an initiative to introduce new casinos to the state and expand gambling facilities at the Southland and Oaklawn racinos. Under new proposals, sports betting in Arkansas would be made totally legal for the first time.
