Home » Kentucky retail sports betting goes live

The US state of Kentucky officially went live with retail sports betting on Thursday, with mobile wagers set to follow on September 28.

Governor Andy Beshear placed the first bet at Churchill Downs in the Bluegrass State and said it is a “win-win” for Kentuckians.

He added people can “enjoy a quality entertainment experience and benefit from funds staying right here in our state to help us build a better Kentucky.”

Beshear then placed a second bet at Lexington’s Red Mile, which has opened in partnership with Caesars Entertainment.

Lt. Gov. Coleman said: “Sports wagering will benefit all Kentuckians. It means more revenue for economic development, disaster relief and infrastructure projects, like new roads, bridges and clean water.

“It means more money for our public schools and support for the pensions of firefighters, public servants, teachers and law enforcement officers. Simply put, sports wagering is helping us build a better Kentucky for everyone.”
