Bet365 and others applied for Kentucky mobile betting license

Applications for additional licenses for mobile sports wagering have been submitted to the Kentucky Horse Racing Commission by 7 different operators, encompassing well-known brands like Bet365 and FanDuel.

Kentucky is poised to inaugurate its licit online betting market in the upcoming month, in accordance with the previously agreed-upon timeline. This development comes subsequent to the endorsement of legal betting by Governor Andy Beshear, who signed House Bill 551 into law during the month of April.

Commencing on September 7th, retail wagering will become operational, followed by the release of mobile wagering on September 28th.

The Chairman of KHRC, Jonathan Rabinowitz added:

We are enthusiastic about launching sports betting and are diligently striving to meet all required deadlines. This meticulous procedure underscores our commitment to upholding the integrity of betting and safeguarding bettors within the KY state borders.

Applicants within the state have been accessible for a period of time, resulting in the KHRC getting partnership offerings from a variety of casino operators.

In addition to Bet365 and FanDuel, other notable applicants vying for mobile licenses encompass Caesars, BetMGM, Circa, as well as DraftKings, and Penn Sports Interactive.
