Alaska Horse Race Betting

Alaska allows some gambling, including casinos on Native American reservations, but betting on horses online is explicitly barred under state law. No sites are legal. This has everything to do with the state’s location, size, and lack of major population centers.

Plus, Alaska is cold and far away so it has long been ignored by the horse racing industry. You won’t even find greyhounds or OTBs in the state.

The state does allow bingo and social in-home betting as well as wagering on “dog mushers” contests, such as the Iditarod, and other games closely associated with the environment and culture of Alaska, including events like the Canned Salmon Classic, Deep Freeze Classic, Fish Derby, Goose Classic, Ice Classic, King Salmon Classic, and others. 

Online gambling is illegal in Alaska, though a 2012 law allows gaming to be promoted online. As such, no licensed U.S. operators will accept wagers from Alaska residents.
