Can I Bet on the Draftkings App From Oklahoma?

While you will be unable to bet on the Draftkings app from the great state of Oklahoma, BetOnline is accessible with its generous welcome bonus (max bonus $1000) and hundreds of team and player props.

The US Supreme Court in 2018 opened the floodgates to allow sports betting in all 50 states.

Each state must amend its own laws to begin regulating and licensing.  Oklahoma is yet to do so.  Because Draftkings adheres to operating only in states that feature a regulatory framework, that company has opted to stay out of Oklahoma for the time being.

So while you may see plenty of Draftkings advertisements throughout March Madness, during NBA games and deep into the MLB season, the options available are playing with sites based outside the state (BetOnline has been in business since 1999 and welcomes those in Oklahoma to place bets) or rely on a local bookie. Both options allow for anonymity and therefore eliminate most privacy concerns.

It's interesting to note that sports wagering in Oklahoma goes well beyond its famed college football season. The Sooners were listed with odds of 40-1 to win the 2021 Men's College Basketball Championship.  The NBA's Oklahoma City Thunder franchise was playing some decent basketball and always attracts plenty of betting interest.

Both the Sooners and Cowboys are among the favorites to win the 2023 College Football Playoff Championship.

For anyone looking forward to playing on the Draftkings app from Oklahoma at a future date, don't hold your breath.  The state is currently embroiled in a fierce compact dispute with the tribes.  It is they who control pretty much all gaming activity in Oklahoma.
