Alaska Sports Betting

The Frontier State came close in early 2020 to pushing through one of two bills which would legalized sports betting.

The bills would have handed control to the Alaska Lottery Corporation Act which could have decided which sportsbooks it would allow into the state.

The added sports betting tax revenue was earmarked for state programs, including foster care.

We expect that the bills will be proposed again in 2021, especially since they had enjoyed the support of the state governor.

Online Sports Betting in Alaska

A bill which would have legalized sports betting in Alaska looked set to pass in early 2020. The Alaska sports betting industry had proposed two bills; Senate Bill 188 and House Bill 246 which would have legalized sports betting in the state.

This was then followed by Governor Mike Dunleavy's support of legal sports betting. The added revenue brought in by sports betting taxation was supposed to go to state programs, such as foster care.

However, with the legislative session coming to a close in early in 2020, no bill was passed.

It is highly likely that this will be brought up for discussion during the 2021 state legislative session.
