South Carolina is one of the most restrictive gambling states. No casinos, whether they are commercial or tribal exist within the borders of South Carolina.Thankfully, Daily Fantasy Sports (DFS) and cruise casinos are a shining light for South Carolina’s players, and fully available for legal competition play.
Horse racing betting and even off-track wagering at OTBs have long been touted, and in sports betting, a form of parlay card betting system based on Oregon’s former ‘Sport Action’ was debated. All efforts including the latest attempt in January 2019 (SJR 57) have died in legislative committees after just one reading. No other attempts have been made to introduce legislation since that failure in 2019, so something in the style of a NJ online sportsbook still remains a fantasy in South Carolina for the time being.
