Kentucky bettors will be able to begin wagering at 6 a.m. on Thursday, Sept. 28. Sportsbooks have already begun preregistration, allowing locals to join early and claim special promotions. Bettors can download the apps in advance, but the odds will not be accessible until launch time. As soon as the market is live, all the pre-launch offers will be claimable for those who signed up early.

At 6 a.m. on launch day, all pre-launch offers will be unavailable to claim for those who hadn’t beforehand. Additionally, launch day promos will be live for locals. The first set of bets will be able to be placed in Kentucky at that time.

What Can I Bet On In Kentucky?

Kentucky sportsbooks will be hosting similar betting lines found in other markets. Fans can wager on tennis, the PGA TOUR (including Louisville, KY native Justin Thomas in Ryder Cup odds), the NFL, the MLB, the NHL, and the NBA alongside events like boxing and MMA among others. Kentucky’s full catalog of betting options is even more extensive.

Bettors can wager on esports, the X Games, both the Summer and Winter Olympic Games, the Hot Dog Eating Contest, chess, and cornhole. There will even be options to wager on the XFL and USFL. Kentucky online sportsbooks will have more betting options at its local sports books in terms of the sheer variety of allowed events than many other established markets.
