Alabama Sports Betting

It might be a generous application of the phrase 'expecting action' but the reality is that Alabama is slowly becoming surrounded by states that allow some form of gambling, and with a number of proposals already filed it can surely only be a matter of time before the conservative state warms to the idea.

State legislature has already rejected four proposals to legalize sports betting. In 2020, HB301 was introduced as a fifth attempt. In short - the issue is not going away.

Louisiana and Mississippi have already legalized sports betting and Tennessee is close to allowing it. Florida and Georgia expect to pass a bill in the next two years. So, it will only be a matter of time before the state of Alabama will pass some of bill.

Alabama is slowly warming to the idea of legal sports betting. As other traditionally conservative states move to legalize gambling, it seems like the Yellowhammer state is starting to ease up on the idea.

Mississippi enjoys a healthy sports betting market with legal retail sportsbooks and limited online sports betting. Tennessee legalized sports betting in 2020. Then the big two neighbours Georgia and Florida are edging closer to legalizing sports betting.

The state will simply not want to see lost potential revenue in the form of sports betting taxation go to neighbouring states. The previous bills have recommended a 10% tax rate.
