If you haven't heard the news yet Oklahoma is looking to make sports betting legal. Just recently Governor Kevin Stitt on his official Twitter page stated that he supports legal sports betting according to a Tweet he posted yesterday (01-03-22). We could be seeing a change in the current state law sometime really soon.

The Sooner State is only one of a few states where formal sports betting is illegal. There have been several attempts in the past to change this but have so far been unsuccessful. However, this could all change as Oklahoma Governor Kevin Stitt has stated he supports legal sports betting. See his statement from Twitter.

The new legislative session for Oklahoma begins on Monday, February 6th (02-06-23) and there's already been a bill introduced that would legalize sports betting in the state. It was introduced by Rep. Ken Luttrell (R-Ponca City) who introduced similar legislation in the last legislative session, but it failed to pass.

While nothing is guaranteed it's looking pretty good and the bill has a much better chance of passing this time around, especially with the Governor's support. Right now Oklahomans are going out of state to bet on sports or are using other outlets and sites. None of which benefit the state in any significant or real way.
