Kansas online sports betting

The legalization process in Kansas was long and protracted after the US Senate removed the federal ban on sports betting in 2018. Now, in the second half of 2022, the state House and Senate finally passed a bill allowing online sports betting in the state.

Several online sportsbooks are now licensed in the state and we expect many more thanks to the state's low tax rate of 10% on sports betting wagers.

Online Sports Betting in Kansas

It took a while but online sports betting has finally arrived in Kansas.

With legal online sports betting already live in neighboring Colorado and imminent legalization in Missouri, Kansas was set to lose out on some significant potential tax revenue.

After the US Senate removed the federal ban on sports betting in 2018 it remained uncertain whether state laws would follow suit. A number of early adopters such as New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Indiana legalized online sports betting. Most other states resisted initially reforms, including Nevada which set such heavy restrictions on online sports betting, effectively rendering it almost pointless.

Eventually though as NJ, PA and IN welcomed a new tax revenue stream, a trickle became a flood, and other states ditched the gambling taboo and began to legalize sports betting.

Now, Kansas has finally allowed unrestricted online sports betting for full bettors who sign-up to a sportsbook that is licensed in the state.

Remember if you are placing a wager in Kansas you must:

  • Be 21 years or older
  • Present a valid ID
  • Be physically located within state borders
  • Use a payment method that is accepted by your sportsbook of choice (PayPal is recommended)
Sports Betting in Kansas: The situation in short
Nils Edmondson

Nils Edmondson

  • The US Supreme Court deems the PASPA act unconstitutional in May 2018.
  • In 2020 the S283 sports betting bill was proposed by the Senate
  • In 2020, House Bill 2671 was propsed with the House State and Local Affairs Committee dropping the Senate's proposal in favour of the House bill.
  • In 2022 online sports betting was legalized in the state of Kansas.
  • In September 2022 the first licensed online sportsbooks went live.

FanDuel KS

There is barely a state where online sports betting is legal where FanDuel has not been one of the first sportsbooks to go live.

FanDuel began its life as a Daily Fantasy Sports provider so it already boasts a significant user base all over the country. This has made it easier for the company to roll out a new online sportsbook that is well integrated with its existing product.

With that in mind, we can highly recommend that if you are an existing customer then you should start with FanDuel as your first sportsbook.

FanDuel Kansas

$150 Free - Early Sign Up Offer

Pros

  • Excellent Kansas-specific welcome offer
  • No minimum withdrawal requirements
  • Wide selection of payment options
  • 5 retail locations
  • Joint daily fantasy sports account with sportsbook account

Cons

  • Buggy live chat feature

DraftKings KS

Where FanDuel goes, DraftKings follows, and vice versa.

The two companies enjoyed significant shares of the DFS market, ensuring a seamless shift into online sports betting.

Just as we recommended that satisfied DFS FanDuel customers chose the same brand for its sportsbook product, we recommend existing DraftKings customers choose DraftKings sportsbook.

Overall DraftKings sportsbook offers an excellent product. However, we find their welcome offer a little misleading as it contains a 25x turnover requirement.

DraftKings KA

DraftKings Kansas

Deposit Bonus of up to $1,000

Pros

  • User-friendly app
  • Integrated daily fantasy sports product with sportsbook (inc wallet)
  • Great selection of payment options
  • Wide range of betting options

Cons

  • A x25 turnover requirement for welcome bonus

Caesars KS

The sports betting giant launched its first online sportsbook in the summer of 2021. It may have been late to the party, but it has more than made up for its late arrival.

The online sportsbook has gone all out with huge sponsorship deals and mega promotions.

Overall it is a great sportsbook but being so new, we have spotted a few cracks it needs to iron out.

Caesars Kansas

Caesars Kansas

Bet up to $1,250 Risk Free

Pros

  • Great selection of daily odds boosts
  • Wide selection of betting types
  • Excellent selection of payment options
  • Sponsors of the Kansas City Chiefs

Cons

  • No retail location in Kansas State

PointsBet KS

PointsBet established itself in Australia years ago but broke onto the scene in the US in 2019.

The sportsbook was a pioneer in offering alternative points betting where you win more or less depending on how wrong or right your wager is.

This form of betting can offer significantly more value, than traditional moneylines, for more US-centric sports such as basketball and football which are high-scoring and often have a clear favorite.

PointsBet Kansas

PointsBet Kansas

Risk Free Bet up to $1,500

Pros

  • Excellent and established welcome bonus
  • Unique points betting function
  • Wide selection of sports

Cons

  • PayPal only e-wallet option

BetMGM KS

BetMGM is another household betting brand that went online after the US Senate removed the federal ban on sports betting.

The brand initially launched PlayMGM online in Nevada, but soon re-branded its online product BetMGM in new states.

FanDuel and DraftKings still enjoy the largest market share in the country, but BetMGM is not far behind.

Overall, it offers an excellent product that the team at BettingScanner highly recommend.

BetMGM Kansas
