Online Sports Betting in Alaska
The outlook for legalized sportsbooks in Alaska currently looks as frosty as the weather. Sports betting sites continue to be frozen out of the Last Frontier. In fact, Alaska has yet to even set up any kind of state lottery. For now, gamblers in Anchorage or Fairbanks will have to travel to Canada or fly into other US states to get their fill.
Weirdly, daily fantasy sports sites accept players in Alaska. Some of the biggest operators like DraftKings and FanDuel operate there and would be top of the list to unleash their legal sportsbook operations.

Alaska Online Sportsbook Regulation in 2022
Before Alaska can legalize sports betting, the state needs to sort out its lottery regulations. Despite attempts to introduce a state lottery in 2020, the bill never made it out of the Senate. Gov. Dunleavy was keen to treat sports betting like any type of lottery game. Lawmakers disagreed, however.
Currently, charitable gaming is overseen by the Alaska Department of Revenue. It issues permits to organizations who run “games of chance” in order to raise money for good causes. The body would possibly be responsible for overseeing online sports betting. However, it’s more likely that Alaska would regulate sportsbooks through the Alaska Lottery or a separate state gaming commission.
