Online Sports Betting in North Dakota
North Dakota currently has no legalized online sports betting. However, the state’s tribal casinos started a soft launch of retail sportsbooks in early 2022. Tribal casinos such as the Sky Dancer and the Dakota Magic Casino & Hotel now have retail sportsbooks where you can place bets in person at self-service kiosks. There are no mobile apps, however, and all bets must be made over the counter.

Sportsbook Regulation in North Dakota
North Dakota now allows sports betting at tribal casinos only. Under strict gaming compacts signed in 2019, betting is only permitted in person at tribal casino sportsbooks. Sports gamblers in North Dakota must be 21 or over to visit a Dakota Nation tribal casino and place wagers.
Despite multiple attempts, North Dakota has failed to pass any of its many sports betting bills. The most recent, setting up a framework of online and mobile sportsbooks – HB 3032 – failed to make it through the House. It’s unlikely that any more bills will be considered before 2024.
Retail Sportsbooks to Visit in North Dakota
North Dakota has established tribal casinos, with several offering retail sportsbooks. Currently, sportsbooks are open at all the Dakota Nation Gaming Enterprise casinos such as those in Hankinson and Watertown.
You can bet live at a kiosk or use self-service terminals to place your own bets. We expect more ND casinos to start offering live sports betting should North Dakota legalize sportsbooks in the future.
