Online Gaming in Arkansas

In December 2013, Oaklawn Racing and Gaming launched oaklawnanywhere.com. The site provides advance deposit wagering (ADW) in partnership with Churchill Downs' TwinSpires.com. The website allows patrons to wager on races at Oaklawn and other races throughout the U.S. and the world.

Oaklawn Anywhere is currently the only ADW site regulated and taxed by Arkansas.

In April 2017, Governor Asa Hutchinson signed House Bill 2250, legalizing and regulating fantasy sports and clarifying the legality of sites like DraftKings and FanDuel. The state became the first to sign such a bill in 2017.

In April 2021 a bill calling for the introduction and regulation of online sports pools by casino licensees in Arkansas was referred to the state House Rules Committee. Introduced by Representative Lee Johnson, it asks for online sports betting to be approved "immediately" for operation in the state.

The bill outlines that each casino should have no more than three individually branded online sports betting platforms. The Arkansas Racing Commission would handle most other regulatory necessities such as determining the types of wagers offered, the record-keeping requirements, and ensuring children are not targeted by gambling advertising.
