The Bovada website (formerly known as Bodog) is accessible to those living in the state of Oklahoma, as are numerous other offshore sportsbooks more than happy to take bets from those living in the state.

Back in May the U.S. Supreme Court ruled to abolish decades long prohibition against sports betting.  Sites like Bovada have long operated in the U.S., claiming that, because they are legal and licensed in the jurisdiction from which they operate in, their website is NOT illegal in states that do not explicitly deem Web gambling illegal.  Until now only Washington State has done so and Bovada opted to exit that jurisdiction as a result.

Oklahoma could soon provide competition to the offshore books as it looks to possibly open a sportsbook in the not-so-distant future along the Texas-Oklahoma border at the massive WinStar World Casino.  This could occur as soon as the next two years.

For now, those living in the state have options to bet sports online in the form of internationally-licensed sports betting sites, many of which have been in business now for 20 plus years.
