Wisconsin Sports Betting

WI Online Sports Betting Legalization Updates June 2024


Legal sports betting exists in Wisconsin –– but it's very limited. Currently, bettors can only bet on sports at nine locations within the state, and your first deposit must be made at a retail location. The state of Wisconsin has allowed the Potawatomi to offer wagering on sports and other events. This has not been implemented yet but will be in the near future.

With no legal sports betting in sight, it is important to note that Daily Fantasy is legal in the state. PrizePicks is a daily fantasy sports app that you can use in Wisconsin. First-time users are eligible for the following offer: Get a $100 INSTANT Deposit Match! Be sure to sign up with promo code ACTION6 and make your picks!

There are also a few other DFS platforms available, including Fliff, Betr Fantasy, Sleeper, Dabble, Owners Box, and more!

WI Sports Betting Overview, Timeline and Background

You can currently bet on sports in Wisconsin, but the laws are rather restrictive. There is one operating app, and you must be located in one of the nine designated locations in order to place your bets. On top of this, players must make their first deposit and a retail location. Wisconsin natives and visitors hope that the laws surrounding mobile sports betting loosen up soon. The Potawatomi Tribe will soon be able to offer sports betting as well. Be sure to check back for the latest news on mobile sports betting in Wisconsin.

Wisconsin has a long way to go before mobile sports betting is legalized but — at the very least — Wisconsinites will be able to bet on sports at casinos in the major population centers for the foreseeable future.

There is another way you can put your sports knowledge to the test.

PrizePicks is an app where you can choose if a player will go over or under certain stats for the duration of a given game. Action Network visitors can take advantage of the following offer: Get a $100 INSTANT Deposit Match! Make sure you use the code ACTION6 and make your picks!

Wisconsin Sports Betting Grading Card

Legalized mobile sports betting in Wisconsin has a long way to go. While there are ways to bet on sports, there are a lot of hoops to jump through in order to get your bets placed. We hope that the restrictions loosen as sports betting becomes legal in more states.

Sports betting bill analysis TBD.
