Quite similar in some ways to the very strict Hawaii and Alaska, gambling in Virginia is subject to some very strict gambling laws. For example, Virginia State Statutes have a narrow definition of what does-and-does-not constitute illegal gambling (see § 18.2-325 of the State Code).
That said, Daily Fantasy Sports (DFS) are legal and the Virginia State Lottery operates without restriction. Horse racing is legal in Virginia (albeit with no tracks in operation), however, off-track and online betting is offered.
A popular state lottery, home poker games and some limited charitable gaming options round out the available legal options in Virginia.
