While Tennessee online sports betting has become legal, online casinos are a different story. The governor of the Volunteer State, Bill Lee, does not support brick & mortar gambling locations.
Additionally, he does not want online casinos anywhere in Tennessee. This is because he perceives casinos – both online and land-based – as the “most harmful form of gambling”.
Online horse racing in TN may turn out to be perceived differently. But for now, you cannot bet on horses online in TN.
The Future of Tennessee Online Casinos
While it's not ideal to have such strong opposition to online casinos, it's great that Tennesseeans can soon bet on sports from anywhere in the state.
Plus, it shows that state legislators are taking future technologies into consideration. Unlike some states, such as Nevada, where in-person registration is required to sign up for a mobile platform.
