Introduction to Sports Betting in Georgia

The Peach State is on the brink of embracing sports betting, with significant legislative efforts underway to bring this form of entertainment to its residents. With SR579 gaining traction in the Senate and other legislative proposals in play, Georgia is actively working towards legalizing sports betting, potentially welcoming renowned operators such as Fanatics Sportsbook, FanDuel, ESPN BET, BetMGM, bet365, and Caesars Sportsbook.

Legislative Developments in Georgia

SR579's Progress:
Passed by the Georgia Senate in late February 2024, SR579 is now under House review. This resolution is a key effort to amend the state constitution to legalize sports betting in Georgia.

The Journey of SB386:
Introduced on January 24, 2024, and swiftly passing the Senate with a requirement for a constitutional amendment, SB386 is now seeking approval from the State House. Governor Brian Kemp's endorsement could lead to a public vote in November on sports betting's legalization.

SR538's Ambition:
Aiming to legalize both sports betting and retail casinos, SR538 passed the Senate in late February 2024 and represents another avenue for gambling expansion in Georgia.
