Online Sports Betting in Hawaii
Hawaii is one of the strictest US states when it comes to legal sportsbooks. There is no legalized sports betting in the state, despite the best efforts of senators like Rep. John Mizuno.
Currently, you can’t make legal sports bets online in Hawaii. However, we expect major operators like FanDuel and BetMGM to be ready with the same product as they offer in states such as New Jersey.

Sportsbook Regulation in Hawaii
Legal Hawaii sports betting has long been as unlikely as seeing snowfall on the beaches of Honolulu. However, a massive hit to tourism due to COVID-19 has led lawmakers to re-evaluate.
Hawaii is one of just two US states that doesn’t have casinos, sports betting or even a lottery. But the introduction of HB 736 in 2021 opened the door just a little to regulated sports betting.
A further bill – HB 1815 – passed a first reading in early 2022. The law would create an online sports wagering corporation to regulate the industry on the Pacific island.
Under the new law, only one legal online sportsbook would go live. A separate bill – HB 1820 – would allow for one new casino to open. The plans are tiny compared to other states, and a prohibitive 55% tax on revenue may kill any proposals before they have begun.
