Best Oklahoma Betting Apps
Many of the nation's best betting apps are not available in Oklahoma due to some stricter mobile betting laws. Here's a look at some available options.
Oklahoma, OK Sports Betting Apps
Legal Oklahoma Sports Betting and Mobile Betting Apps for Android and iPhone: TwinSpires, BetAmerica. DFS apps: FantasyDraft, Draft, Yahoo Daily Fantasy app, Fanduel DFS and Draftkings Fantasy app.
Expected Oklahoma mobile betting apps in 2021 and further: WinStar World & Casino, Choctaw Casino Resort App, Hard Rock, Grand Casino Sports Betting App. Would be great with other apps such as bet365, William Hill, Pointsbet etc.
Betting markets/leagues/events via Oklahoma online betting app: Major horse racing events currently legal. All major American professional sports will be available when legalized, and other world sports will be legalized as well.
Mobile betting in Oklahoma
Oklahoma is another state that is a long and difficult battle with the Native American tribes in the state when it comes to sports betting. The Native American tribe do not want to give up control over the gambling industry, and they are not likely to budge anytime soon.
Lawmakers in Oklahoma have been trying to legalize sports betting, and it is likely that a deal will get done soon. Horse race betting is legal in the state of Oklahoma, and there are a number of race tracks located throughout the state. These race tracks don’t currently offer an online app, but there are a few websites that do. The links are listed above to these two sites, as well as a list of casinos that will likely add a sports betting app if sports gambling becomes legalized.
Oklahoma would like to join the growing number of states that have already opened legalized sports books or are in the process of legalizing sports betting. But the year 2021 is the earliest even with an aggressive approach.
Since the Supreme Court decision on May 14, 2018, struck down the federal ban on sports betting (PASPA), states have been proposing legislation to legalize sports betting. As of late June 2019, there are eight states with legal sports betting and 10 more states pending launch with legislative approval.
Oklahoma residents hope to join the growing states and interest of fans that are able to legally bet on sports like football, basketball, baseball, hockey, soccer, boxing, UFC and other sports. The interest in being able to bet on the big ‘Bedlam’ football game between Oklahoma and Oklahoma state is growing. The legal age for gambling in Oklahoma is 18 in some casinos and 21 in others.
Oklahoma has a casino infrastructure with the tribal casinos, and once legislation is adopted and passed, legal sports betting will be offered within the casinos. Further expansion and mobile betting would have to be proposed and approved by legislators.
Legislation Updates on Sports Betting in Oklahoma
There was no action taken following the recent legislative session on a bill that was introduced to allow the Oklahoma governor to expand the tribal-state compact and include “sports pools.” The expansion would have consisted of “wagering on the outcome of one or more competitive games in which athletes participate, or on one or more performances of such athletes in such games where all bets are placed in a common pool or pot from which all player winnings, prizes and direct costs are paid.”
