Sept. 1 is the date sports bettors in The Sunflower State have been waiting for: legal online Kansas sports betting will be live.
Kansas is launching legal mobile wagering at noon CST next Thursday, which comes one week ahead of the start of the 2022 NFL season when the Buffalo Bills and the Los Angeles Rams kick off under the lights for Thursday Night Football on Sept. 8.
Sept. 1 will technically be a “soft launch” date for Kansas sports betting with the official day being Sept. 8 when online operators will take bets on all sports. The Kansas Lottery on Friday approved six operators to take online bets on Sept. 1: FanDuel, DraftKings, BetMGM, Caesars, Barstool Sportsbook and PointsBet.
If you’re a Kansas sports bettor, this means you’ll have the chance to get your wagers in up to three days before the Kansas City Chiefs take on the Arizona Cardinals in their season opener. Additionally, due to the abundance of college sports teams in the state, Kansas is expected to be a premier destination for college football and basketball betting moving forward.
Nine online sportsbooks are fully licensed and ready to launch early next month through partnerships with Kansas’ four casinos. Up to 12 total sportsbooks are allowed to enter the state, but those launch timelines and which books are approved will be announced in the future.
Kansas Casinos and Sportsbook Partnerships
Boot Hill Casino & Resort
Located in Dodge City, this facility offers about 700 slots, 16 table games, exciting weekly promotions, and Players Club rewards. Boot Hill is the first state-owned casino in Kansas and has deals with Bally Bet and DraftKings.
Bally Bet is not expected to be among the sportsbooks to launch right at noon on Sept. 1 when Kansas sports betting goes live, but it’s expected the sportsbook will begin taking wagers once the full launch arrives on Sept. 8.
DraftKings will be on the shortlist of online sportsbooks that will be available during Kansas’ soft launch starting Sept. 1.

The Mulvane-based casino offers over 1,700 slots and 50 table games. The Kansas Star Casino has deals in place with BetMGM and FanDuel.

FOX Bet Sportsbook
FOX Bet is not expected to be among the list of sportsbooks that go live during Kansas’ soft launch. However, they previously reached a deal with Penn National Gaming and the Hollywood Casino to be one of the speedway’s three Kansas sports betting licenses, so it’s expected FOX Bet will be an available option for in-state bettors soon.
