Can I Bet on Draftkings Sportsbook App From Alaska?

You will not be able to bet using the Draftkings sportsbook app from Alaska as that state is yet to amend its laws applying to sports wagering.  Currently, BetOnlines (established 1999) is available to those living in Alaska.  They offer a generous welcome bonus (max bonus $1000).  No social security number required.  18 and up.


Alaska legislators did introduce a sports gambling bill in mid February but the coronavirus pretty much halted any efforts for this bill to move forward.

Sports betting in Alaska would be part of a larger lottery bill in a state that doesn't have a lottery.

Alaska Governor Mike Dunleavy stated back in 2020:

“In the face of low state revenues, my administration has been actively seeking new revenue sources to diversify our economy. Not only does this legislation have the potential of creating new business opportunities, the profits generated from lottery activities will be designated to K-12 education, domestic violence prevention programs, drug abuse prevention programs, foster care, and homelessness.” 

Along with sports wagering, instant games, multi-state draw games, and keno would have been allowed. 

Alaska lawmakers have done little in the pursuit of regulated sports betting in the state since.

Sports betting will continue to be available from sites that are licensed outside of Alaska.
