Online Sports Betting in Vermont

Vermont is currently one of 14 US states not to offer legal sports betting in the country. The Green Mountain State finds itself lagging behind nearby states like Massachusetts and New York who both have sportsbook laws. 

Despite tentative steps in recent years to examine sports betting legislation, Vermont gamblers must cross state borders if they want to gamble online.

Sportsbook Regulation in Vermont

Changing sports betting legislation in Vermont has been a long and laborious process. Currently, gamblers in Vermont must travel across the state’s short borders to neighboring states which have more favorable gambling laws. Massachusetts to the south has legalized sports betting in 2022, as has New York to the west. 

A study bill – S 59 – was introduced in Vermont back in 2020 and was approved by the House. Ultimately, the bill failed but a revised bill – S 77 – was introduced in 2021. Sports betting would be offered via the state’s lottery (VT Lottery). In addition, up to six mobile sportsbook providers would be given licenses. 

There is hope in Vermont for legal sportsbooks. A legislative study committee has released a short 12-page document on ‘Creating the Sports Wagering Regulatory Framework’ in Vermont. 

The document examines whether Vermont should amend existing lottery rules to allow sports betting. Questions are also asked about whether just retail sports betting would be allowed, or mobile/online as well. The document could be a starting point for a future Vermont online gambling law.
