HI Sports Betting Legalization & Mobile Sportsbook Updates 2022
Updated March 24, 2022
We hope for more Hawaii sports betting information to come out sooner rather than later, but for now, the state remains one of two in the U.S. without any forms of gambling at all, joining Utah. Hawaii is missing out on approximately $11.7 million in revenue each year.
Bill 1815 was introduced earlier this year which looks like a step in the right direction. The bill proposes a 55% tax rate, which would be even higher than the likes of New York and Pennsylvania.
Whether you live in Hawaii or are there vacationing during the NFL Playoffs or March Madness, don't expect to be placing any bets there for the foreseeable future — we're talking 2023 to 2024 and beyond.

Hawaii Teams to Bet On
Hawaii Rainbow Warriors
Hawaii has no professional teams and just one D-I college team to bet on — the Hawaii Rainbow Warriors. Competing in the Big West Conference in basketball and the Mountain West for football, the Warriors have to do more traveling than most teams considering they have to take a plane for every away game. That can be grueling over the course of a season, but they've made it work. The men's basketball team made it to the second round of March Madness for the first time in school history back in 2016, while the football program has made it to five bowl games in the last six seasons.
