Missouri Online Gambling

The latest on Missouri online gambling, sports betting, lottery, and more.

Online casinos and other real money online gambling sites are unavailable in the state at this time. For yet another year, Missouri sports betting legislation reached the Senate floor in 2023. However, once again, that’s where a bill died. The legislative session adjourned in mid-May without the legalization of sports betting in the Show-Me State.

For now, Missouri residents can cross the border and download sports betting apps in Kansas. Missourians also have plenty of riverboat casino gambling to enjoy with 13 different casinos operating. The state lottery, daily fantasy sports, bingo and charitable games add further to currently legal gambling options.

As Missouri considers authorizing additional types of gambling (particularly online gambling), this page will keep you up to date on everything happening. Read on for all the latest, and make sure to check back for all the latest developments about gambling in Missouri.

For the most part, no. There are no legal online casinos, poker rooms or sportsbooks in Missouri at this time. Although Missouri lawmakers are working to change the situation, the status quo in the Show-Me State allows very little in the way of online gambling other than DFS.

Does Missouri allow sports betting?

No. There are no legal sportsbooks of any kind taking wagers in Missouri. The best option for Missourians who would like to bet on sports is to travel to neighboring states like Kansas, Iowa, Illinois, Tennessee and Arkansas.

Who regulates gambling in Missouri?

The Missouri Gaming Commission. All casinos, charitable gaming and DFS operations in the Show-Me State are under the oversight of the MGC. Any newly authorized gambling activities would likely fall under its purview as well.

In order to visit a Missouri riverboat casino, you must be 21 or older. The Missouri Lottery requires players to be 18 or older to purchase tickets. It is possible to play bingo in the state if you are as young as 16.
