You have seen the ads.  Draftkings is all over the place during sporting events.  But if you live in California, Draftkings is not available for betting. Instead, you can place bets with sites licensed outside the state like BetOnline.  They offer a generous welcome bonus (max bonus $1000) and have been in business since 1999.

If you opened a Draftkings wagering account in another state and happen to be visiting California, you still won't be able to bet with them while in the state.

California is unlikely to legalize mobile wagering in-state due to the Tribal dominance over the gambling sector.  The tribes would like to offer sports betting, however, they do not want remote gambling to cannibalize their own casinos.

California has the 8th largest economy in the world with what seems like an endless number of professional sports teams.  A few college teams also enjoy significant loyalty including Sanford, San Diego State, USC and UCLA, among others.

LA is also represented in two title games in 2020.  The LA Lakers won the NBA Championship while the Dodgers were making their third World Series appearances in four years.
