Online betting in New Mexico currently consists of Daily Fantasy Sports (DFS) and horse racing betting. Land-based gambling options for players in New Mexico include a wide range of tribal casinos and two commercial casinos. In great news for the state’s sports betting aficionados, in November of 2018, New Mexico’s Pueblo of Santa Ana tribe began offering legal sports betting.
However, New Mexico does not regulate online casinos or poker sites and there are no pending bills before the state’s lawmakers to legalize an online gaming industry. Given any legalization push would require a complex and drawn-out legislative debate, the state’s lawmakers currently have no little stomach for making online gambling in New Mexico a likely prospect any time soon. Meanwhile, the DFS and horse betting options exist for online players in New Mexico.
