Gambling in Alabama

Given its status as one of the most conservative U.S. states, it's no surprise Alabama isn’t much of a gambling hub. That means legal online gambling in Alabama is nonexistent, and change doesn’t look like it’s going to be on the horizon anytime soon.

Alabama takes illegal gambling very seriously. Any business or person caught breaking the law can be charged with a class A misdemeanor and sentenced for up to a year in prison and fined up to $6,000. There are three casinos on Native American land that offer limited forms of gaming, as well as horse and greyhound tracks. Besides those avenues, and not-for-profit charity events, there's not much else.

Timeline of Gambling Legislation in Alabama

Online Casino Gambling in Alabama

Due to strong religious sentiments within the state, Alabama online or commercial casinos haven't garnered much support in recent years. Although we’d like to say the outlook is bright, no relevant bills are under debate right now. That means the prospect of online casinos in Alabama anytime soon are decidedly a long shot.

Alabama Poker Online

Just as online casino regulation hasn’t come close to gaining traction, online poker in Alabama is also unlikely. Again, any game with an element of chance is classified as gambling in this state, and lawmakers have been unwilling to concede that poker is a game of skill. Based on this, Alabama online poker sites will remain illegal for the foreseeable future.

Sports Betting in Alabama

There have clearly been concessions with regard to sports betting in Alabama over the years. However, even though it’s possible to bet on horse racing, no eligible cities have exercised their right to host it. What’s more, Alabama has shown it is a state that doesn’t typically follow the national trend. Therefore, even with New Jersey and others taking advantage of the repeal of the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act (PASPA) and the federal ban, it’s unlikely the Yellowhammer State will follow suit.
