State Betting

Gambling in Utah

If you were actively doing a search for a state that has little or no gambling, then congratulations you have truly hit paydirt with Utah, as the Beehive State is home to a big fat nothing, zilch, nada it is barren. If you could sum the state of gambling in Utah by that of a Monty Python skit, it would definitely be the dead parrot one.

There are no brick-and-mortar casinos (either state-owned, or those residing on native American soil), the playing of online poker, any kind of internet gambling (luckily there is a get out of jail free option for Daily Fantasy sports), and horse racing betting is strictly prohibited. 

If residents of the state wish to gamble, then they would have to jump in their preferred method of transportation and head to nearby Nevada, where it is a whole different ball game for land-based and online wagering opportunities, or for horse racing they could to head to Wyoming. There may be a glimmer of light in the tunnel for racing fans in Utah as in February 2019 horse racing owner and Senator David Hinkins is looking to get his horse racing betting bill discussed in the senate that would allow for parimutuel betting at race tracks.

The struggle to find anywhere in the state to place a wager is no doubt connected to the fact that is estimated that well over 50% of the residents are members of the Mormon Church, which is very opposed to all forms of gambling. This is includes even a state-sponsored lottery, which do not exist in Utah, so no Powerballs for people living there.
