Mobile Sports betting in California
California leads the country in total casinos, but they are not one of the leaders in mobile sports betting apps. While many states are working hard towards legalization or launch of sports betting, that hasn’t been the case in California.
There are more than 60 casinos throughout the state of California, with almost all of them being ran by Native-American tribes located in the state.
There has been some talk of legalizing sports betting apps of late, but none of the introduced bills made it very far in either the House or the Senate. The place to bet on sporting events in the state of California is at the four full-time horse racing tracks in the state.
These racetracks don’t offer any horse racing betting apps themselves, but there are three mobile betting apps that are currently legal at this point. Racetracks will likely try to come out with a betting app in the near future, but they are facing some tough competition in California.

More so than many states, legalizing sports betting is proving to be an uphill battle for California. The size of the state, the population, and many heavily invested organizations are all working against the greater good.
That said, this does not mean California is a no-go. The market share demands action and although the state legislature has kicked the can down the road for the foreseeable future, there’s just no way the issue will disappear or be denied.
