California Online Betting Updates:

Updated February 29, 2024

January 22, 2024
In 2024, California will not see sports betting legalized, faced with limited support from both tribes and the general populace.

November 17, 2023
A pivotal proposal advocating for commercial sportsbooks was turned down by California's tribal leadership. The closing of public feedback on November 27 will enable the California Nations Indian Gaming Association to begin gathering over 800,000 signatures required to present a tribal sports betting proposition on the November 2024 ballot.

October 27
Despite lacking formal approval from two key state tribes, two propositions for online sports betting were put forward in California.

October 12
The Pala Band of Mission Indians has expressed intentions to propose their own online sports betting initiative, aiming to potentially set the stage for legalization by 2024.

Proposition 27 was decisively rejected by Californians, delaying any potential legalization of sports betting until at least 2024. The gap was significant, with 4.5 million voters opposing it versus around 900,000 in favor. Similarly, Proposition 26 did not pass, halting the progress of in-person sports betting as well. Despite setbacks, proponents from both commercial gaming and tribal sectors are prepared to revisit the issue in 2025.

Is Sports Betting Legal in California?

Currently, California has not legalized sports betting. The rejection of two bills in November 2022, alongside the recent pushback against a tribal-led sports betting initiative, pushes the potential legalization to 2025 or later.
