Kentucky Online Sports Betting

When Will Kentucky Sports Betting Launch?

The Kentucky sports betting market launches on September 7, 2023 with retail sportsbooks opening their doors. Then, online Kentucky sports betting will roll out on September 28, 2023. In the meantime, pre-registration for Kentucky sports betting apps started at 6:00 AM ET on August 28, 2023.

Bettors in the Sunflower State will soon be able to sign up for the best online betting apps like Fanduel Sportsbook Kentucky, Bet365 Sportsbook Kentucky, and DraftKings Sportsbook Kentucky. Each of these sports betting sites are currently offering pre-launch offers.

The retail betting market will get rolling on the same day as the NFL season kickoff, when the Super Bowl champion Kansas City Chiefs will host the Detroit Lions. Kentucky online sports betting, on the other hand, will get rolling on September 28, 2023, the same day the Green Bay Packers and Detroit Lions face off on Thursday Night Football.

Keep an eye on this Kentucky sports betting guide for more information on the different bonuses available.

Kambi was also approved as technology service provider for several operators. The KHRC said it does not have any other service operators in the pipeline. But others could still apply to operate this year. Licenses are valid for up to one year. 

The approvals were unanimous and pre-registration is now open. Right now, bet365 Kentucky is offering early sign ups $10 in Bonus Bets For Every TD scored in the Packers-Lions game on September 28. That’s the first day mobile betting can begin. 

Bet365 Kentucky’s pre-registration offer can also be combined with its launch offer of Bet $1, Get $365 in Bonus Bets. If you sign up now, you can get both, if not, you’ll miss out on the pre-reg offer once Kentucky sports betting goes live for mobile betting on September 28.

Meanwhile, FanDuel is offering $100 in Bonus Bets, plus $100 off NFL Sunday Ticket for anyone who signs up now. DraftKings, on the other hand, has launched an early sign-up offer of $200 in Bonus Bets on Launch Day. BetMGM is offering $100 in Bonus Bets for Launch Day for anyone 21+ who signs up today.
