When will sports betting become legal in Kansas? This is still unclear

Regulators have approved a temporary set of fences that will govern Kansas sports ponds when they go live later this year, but an exact start date remains uncertain.

Officials, including Gov. Laura Kelly, have said publicly that they hope to open sports betting in Kansas by the start of the National Football League season in early September, though the state may not meet that goal. .

Todd Allen, director of sports betting for the Kansas State Racing and Gaming Commission, said a launch date has yet to be announced.

“I will say that we are making progress and hope to have sports betting in Kansas soon,” Allen said in an email.

Kelly signed the sports betting bill into law in May, a breakthrough for lawmakers after years of deadlock over how much of a cut the state should get from all revenue, among other disputes.
