Neither the strictest state, nor the most liberal, Idaho comes to average center-ground when it comes to gambling freedoms when compared to other U.S. states. Although online poker and online sports betting are still illegal, Idaho does permit some forms of online betting (most notably online horse racing betting), however, something like a NJ online sportsbook is still a faint mirage in the future. The state is looking at potentially expanding its online betting options down the track.
Amending Idaho’s laws to bring online sports betting to the state may require some maneuvering and political willpower from the State’s lawmakers, however given the rapid changes taking place with sports betting currently across the United States, anything is possible.
However, to date the Idaho State Legislature does not have any publicly announced bills devoted to sports betting legalization.
