Can I Bet the Kentucky Derby From Washington State, Oregon?

There are a number of online racebooks accessible from Washington State.  BetOnline offers a generous welcome bonus ($1000 max bonus) and 7% back on horse losses.


Okay, well Washington is the only state that makes placing a bet online a Class C felony, akin to a child molester or repeat drunk driver.  But in reality, this ridiculous law has yet to be applied and we doubt it ever will be.  There is little appetite to push those limits.

The US Supreme Court last May made sports betting legal nationwide but individual states would have to amend their own laws in some cases.  Obviously, Washington is one such state.

Horse racing was exempt from previous prohibition.  US-based sites like TwinSpires and XBet want no part of the Washington market.  Most offshore companies do take bets from Washington State residents (some do not).

Oregon is a lot more liberal.  Sports betting, including horse wagering, has long been legal here.

The state itself featured a boring sports betting game through its state lottery.  Otherwise, for the past 20 years, Oregon residents have long enjoyed betting with offshore books.
