North Dakota to Launch Sports Betting imminently
Sports Betting Could Launch in North Dakota within Weeks
North Dakota is the latest location offering regulated sports betting, joining 28 other states and Washington, DC. According to information posted by the American Gaming Association (AGA), North Dakota is listed among the live and legal states. However, local media reports indicate bettors in the Peace Garden State will be able to place bets as soon as December 1. That date could be delayed if there are regulatory obstacles.
Sports enthusiasts and local bettors will be able to place legal wagers at the Dakota Magic Casino (DMC) in Hankinson. This is a tribal gaming venue operated by Dakota Nation Gaming Enterprise (DNGE).
According to a statement released earlier this year by the DNGE, they stated that the Dakota Magic Casino and Hotel in Hankinson, ND, will be the “first to proudly boast the sportsbook lounge this fall.”
People in the state will be able to bet on popular local teams, including North Dakota State football which is prominent in the Football Championship Subdivision (FCS). Initially, sports betting will be confined to the Dakota Nation Sportsbook, as tribal and state officials have yet to approve mobile wagering. This approach is similar to the regulations laid down in neighboring South Dakota, where sports betting is only allowed at Deadwood casinos or within city limits.
What Sports Wagering Could Look Like in North Dakota
Apart from the casino in Hankinson, bettors can also participate in legal sports wagering at the Dakota Sioux in Watertown and Connection in Sisseton.
No timeline has been given regarding possible dates for when the state could approve sports betting more broadly. Some industry experts attribute the lack of action on that front to push back from conservative politicians in the state House and Senate.
However, it is a Republican that is firmly behind the approval of the online poker bill, and some in the North Dakota GOP have openly admitted some of their constituents are betting on sports, whether it is permitted or not.
North Dakota also has some potential geographic advantages regarding sports wagering. Three of the four states that border North Dakota already has a legal sports betting industry. However, the one state of the four that doesn’t, Minnesota, is the most populous, and the road to regulated sports betting there is confusing policymakers.
