Laws around gambling in Tennessee were among the toughest in the nation (until the legalization of online sports betting in 2019) and wider gambling options exist outside the state’s borders. Other legal betting in Tennessee revolves around state and regional lotteries, limited charitable gambling, horse racing betting (off-track and online) and Daily Fantasy Sports (DFS) are played under the auspices of state law. Tennessee’s stern regulations don’t allow for exceptions. For example, no exception is made for social or home gaming.
Most notably, it has been mentioned in the State Legislature and reported in the Volunteer State’s media that Tennessee may make history and legalize something like NJ’s best online casinos before it acts on land-based casinos. For now, it’s a way off, but we’ll advise you as developments come to hand.
