Barstool Sportsbook is one of the freshest and most popular betting locations for avid sports fans in America. As sports betting continues to be legalized in more states, more companies are expanding their footprint to gain access to a larger sports betting crowd.

The Barstool Sports brand has grown exponentially over the last decade and is currently available in 13 U.S. states. Bettors can use the sportsbook and place wagers on sports like the NFL, MLB, and college football if they are located in these states: Pennsylvania, Michigan, Illinois, Colorado, Virginia, New Jersey, Tennessee, Arizona, West Virginia, Iowa, Indiana, Kansas or Louisiana.

Barstool Sportsbook has expanded into those 13 states in the last year-and-a-half. If you are not in any of the 13 states and are wondering when Barstool Sportsbook will come to your state, we’ve got you covered below.

States With Legal Sports Betting but No Barstool Sportsbook

  • Arkansas: No word yet on Barstool Sportsbook in Arkansas; state only has two online sportsbooks (BetSaracen & Betly).
  • Connecticut: FanDuel, DraftKings and SugarHouse are the only active online sportsbooks in the state right now. Barstool has not announced plans if they planning to apply to expand to Connecticut.
  • Delaware: Only in-person sports betting allowed in the state right now since betting is run through the state lottery. No timetable for when online sportsbooks will launch in the state.
  • Florida: Stopped online sports betting in December 2021 due to legal issues, unlikely to begin again in 2022. Sports betting discussions are not expected to open again until at least 2023.
  • Mississippi: Bettors can place sports wagers online but only when physically located in a state casino. So for now Barstool would have to open a live location in the state, which is unlikely at the moment.
  • Montana: Similar to Mississippi, sports bets can be placed online only in a physical casino location in the state, which is run by Intralot, who controls the state lottery. Barstool Sportsbook expansion here is not expected for now.
  • Nevada: The classic betting capital in the U.S. has a tricky setup for online wagers. Mobile betting is allowed in the state, but bettors must sign-up first at a physical location. With this caveat, Barstool Sportsbook is not available at the moment.
  • New Hampshire: Only DraftKings is live in the state so far, but many sportsbooks are looking to expand soon, so expect Barstool Sportsbook to throw their hat in.
  • New York: Online sports betting launched in NY early this year and has been booming. The state originally rejected Barstool’s bid to expand their sportsbook there. It is possible that the brand will try again. 
  • Oregon: The only mobile betting option in Oregon is DraftKings. The popularity of sports betting in the state will determine if Barstool will try to expand there in the future.
  • Rhode Island: The William Hill Sportsbook, owned by Caesars, is the lone option in the state. With the state’s small population, we’re not sure if Barstool Sportsbook will attempt to expand in Rhode Island. 
  • South Dakota: Sports bettors may only place wagers at physical locations in South Dakota, so for now Barstool Sportsbook likely will not be growing there soon.
  • Washington: Mobile sports betting is only legal when at a location on tribal lands in Washington. Statewide expansion of sports betting is unlikely in 2022.
  • Washington D.C.: Bettors can place bets at home Wizards or Nats games when located where those teams play, or place mobile bets on one site: GamBetDC. There has not been any news recently about more mobile betting sites expanding to the nation’s capital. 
  • Wyoming: There are four mobile sites to place sports wagers in Wyoming: DraftKings, BetMGM, FanDuel, and Caesars. PointsBet and Barstool Sportsbook currently have permits in the state, so bettors in Wyoming can expect those companies to launch their expansions soon.

States Set to Legalize Sports Betting

These four states are on the brink of launching legal sports betting after passing the laws needed: Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts and Ohio.

  • Maine: Online sports betting licenses will be granted exclusively to the Penobscot, Passamaquoddy, Micmac and Maliseet tribes. Each may partner with one commercial provider, setting the state up for four online sportsbooks. It has not been announced which four sportsbooks will have the license, so TBD on whether or not Barstool will be one of those to launch in the state.
  • Maryland: Barstool Sportsbook is already live with retail sports betting in the state and is expected to be a part of the mobile betting launch once legal sports betting goes live before the end of 2022.
  • Massachusetts: The state will only allow up to 15 online sports betting operators under its authorizing bill. Licensing will be competitive, and Boston-based DraftKings, FanDuel, BetMGM, Fubo and Jake Paul’s micro betting app, Betr, are among notable prospective suitors. It’s yet to determined whether or not Barstool will be one of the books that obtains a license when sports betting goes live in the next few months.
  • Ohio: Barstool Sportsbook will be one of the sportsbooks to launch retail and online sports betting once legal sports betting goes live on Jan. 1, 2023. Barstool has partnered with the Hollywood Casino Toledo to open Barstool’s first retail sportsbook in The Buckeye State next year. There are three other Ohio casinos owned by Penn National Gaming: Hollywood Casino Columbus, Hollywood Gaming Dayton Raceway and Hollywood Mahoning Valley Race Course.
